    Cool man. But you need to spend longer drawing. Dedication is key to success.

    Hey, the enviros are looking good. the thumbnails and marker sketches are my favorites...something I have to try myself.
    for the anatomy stuff - have you tried bammes (german), or bridgman (great and cheap book) already? however, the best way to learn the human figure would be nude life drawing...

    enjoy your free time!

    Improvements are starting to kick in man, if you crank these out daily for the holz you'll get a really good grip on anatomy. I'd stick to 60s for now, only getting half a figure down won't be helping you much. Looking forward to see more Keep it up and see you around

    I agree with SamC. Keep up the hard work, and do more stuffs. Nice 2nd last pose btw. Looks pretty kickass. Try not retrace lines though, be more confident.

    SamC: thanks! I will! agreed on the 60s, these 30s hit me specially hard today!

    Fraz: thanks man! I appreciae it!


    alright, still got time to lay down my "master-plan" :

    Since I really suck, at anatomy in particular, I thought I was going to change that in the next two weeksvery naive, I know!
    nevertheless, Im gonna try. To hit my figure drawing, Im gonna draw/paint one character per day. (ex, christmas/new-year)
    Im also reading Loomis (started today) and will do about as much posemaniacs I can do per day.

    But I also wanna improve my digitsso Im gonna do photostudys, ( specially light-situation-studys)

    and the third aspect of the plan would be to explore new mediums etc.

    (if you wanna add something, feel free to do so )

    I hope I can get some loads of work done in these 2 weeks!!
    today wasnt a good startbut : new day/new hope!

    heres my "first" chara of the 14 I wanna do:
    a stupid rushed PHUCK knight

    I gotta go, commenting on SSG guys tomorrow morning.

    cheers

    The knights arms seem pretty weird, however I like it.
    Don't rush it next time, make sure you have the proportions down before rendering.

    Good to see your practicing figures, the first chick looks pretty cool, but i think you would get alot more out of doing studies from loomis/bridgman etc so you can really grasp some anatomy. after that come back to pose maniacs and see some improvement

    I sortof agree with Sketchz, look at the PMs and see what needs to be studied, by the way, in case you don't have Bridgeman's Constructive Anatomy, you can download it here http://www.archive.org/details/const...anat00briduoft. Sorry if you do, just wasn't sure.

    Anyway, dude these posemaniacs are improving fucking loads One thing to keep things in proportion, think of the head, chest and pelvis as 3d blocks (you don't actually need to draw 3d blocks lol) instead of drawing an outline of the figure, think of mass and all that stuff. Check out page 173 in Constructive Anatomy, I think it'd really help your PMs.

    Sketchz: hey , thanks for comment! Im reading loomisbut my english sucks and Im really slow:/ anyway, trying my best

    SamC: dude, thanks for the link! going to read just after loomis!

    reviewing my poses, there really is something wrong with proportion
    tried to fix that by drawing a loomis-mannikin instead of figure
    result: Pose-loomiacs
    60s/30s and some proportion studies from ref and without refand a spaceship I kinda like + photostudy, speedpaint 45 min, kinda shit, tried to focus on light

    alright, no chara yesterdayIDIOT!, so 3 today, as a penaltyworking on these, to be posted later
    cheers

    niice your doing anatomy,
    The fleshed out dudes legs looks abit small.
    I'm digging your ship and your eviro is looking pretty good except the persons legs look abit awkward, maybe try turning him on a slight angle to show abit of leg bending.
    Keep at it

    Yeah, nice thumbnails, however the seconds arms seem wrong.
    It is a woman (I think, looking at the hips) yet the arms are crazy huge. But it is just a thumbnail. Keep it up!

    Yes man! I'm loving your attitude and your workload Remember that the more posemaniacs, studies, photos, people from life you draw, the better your poses from mind will be You're improving like a bullet-train Keep it up.

    Nice to see creative stuff, for the first one it looks abit wierd with a small helmet, try enlarging it and moving it down a fraction. I'd love to see one of these painted.

    Try and do some practice on clean (free hand) lines, yours are sometimes too "scratchy" and your design work would really benefit if you could fix this. For your pencils, try and get more contrast and also try to work from big to small with your tones. Start with nice smooth tones and make them more detailed as you go, like in this tutorial: Link. There are other examples in sketchbooks and stuff. Another thing you could do is use levels to make your pencil drawings clearer and get rid of the paper background.

    Your designs are looking really cool and there's loads of imagination here. The digital work is especially good because it's nice and clean. Looking good man, keep it up!

    For the character thumbs, some of the proportions are pretty off.
    You always make the legs too small. Try to go back over the basic proportions. This should help with your posemaniacs also. Try to use less lines for them, and focus on the main areas such as the pelvis, ribcage and head and then move onto the legs and then arms etc.
    Nice balls

    I should do one of them ball too, tsk. I agree with Nrx on the highlight probably not being so visible in such an overcast picture. One tip when you're doing your posemaniacs studies is to try and indicate the direction and general sweep of the gestures rather than trying to get it all down as it looks before you. And mind the extreme points in height and breadth of the pose to make it easier to guess where everything goes. Hope that makes sense, it's easier for me to do than to explain.
