    Digital apple

    oh and here`s the apple

    I don`t know if it`s to early to start with digital stuff when I`m still at the very beginning concerning drawing skills?!?!
    maybe someone can help me?

    thanks

    This is something you will come back several times: http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/art_tut.htm

    But right now this is more urgent: http://www.itchstudios.com/psg/tuts/process.jpg

    Copy the process from the latter bug tutorial, that is how i started into digital. Now the most important thing is to make time for the drawing and make it daily, maybe after some meal you have time to draw every day?

    Get a sketchbook and draw in there even if you feel like it goes horribly wrong, you will not get anywhere with this thing and life sucks in general. Draw even then, only way to get good is practise and it means daily practise. I don't allways draw every day but i really try and i usually draw 6 days a week.

    basics is the way to start, posemaniacs 30s or 1 minute skeches. http://www.posemaniacs.com/

    Good luck, you have potential but now it is all up to you, how hard skin you make and how you will accept the disappointments in the road ahead and just keep going never stopping to gain the good stuff.

    When the road gets hard, the hard stays on road

    It all up to you

    hey man, you got potential here, keep practicing.

    Bout the apple, it's kinda good, but maybe you should zo allot more greyvalues drawings in pencil to really get the hang of it, because painting is like the final step.

    Looking forward to seeing you improve.

    hey yay, THANKS FOR STOPPING BY MY SB!!!

    Nettle_Mountain: wow man, thanks for taking the time, I really appreciate it!
    I did as you said, copied the tut, already got a sketchbook (I totally hate it!) and looked into itchsudios.com and posemaniacs.com; thanks for the links!

    yes, I wanna draw every day and it should be possible, but I know myself (at least a bit) and I tend to be a bit lazy…but being a member of CA.org is some kinda motivation to me ! I`ll just try to post something every day!

    right now I`m working on some poses on posemaniacs and its going horribly wrong!!
    anyway, I`ll post some results later today!I promise!

    Fox1987: yeah your right, I`ll push the traditionals further and maybe go through some tuts as well! if I see some progress I`ll post again

    cheers!

    as promised here are some posemaniacs ( 30s;60s;90s)

    I found a weak point: anatomy!
    when I started with 30s my brain had some kind of overload and got stuck…
    but even the 90s are still weird… this will be my "after-school-program"!

    I think I make to much lines?!?!? can anyone help?

    anyway…here they are ( there are more, but this shows enough…)

    cheers

    Most of Loomis' books (which are from the 1920s and on) are out of print and very rare to come by in a store. If you do a search on CA or google, you'll see that there are PDF versions around somewhere....not that I suggest that you *whisper* download a torrent....

    Ahem. Anywho, if you stil lcan't find it, PM me and I have the file. I printed the whole thing out and created a handbound version which is awesome.

    Keep up your studies! Check out my SB too if you want!
