    Hey - chin up buddy - it's not all so bad and we all have days when we feel like that about our work. Good plan to take a little breather but be encouraged that you're really improving!

    Walid D: I'm using HB leads at the moment from being being on 2B. I prefer HB because I can go lighter, I'll just use more blacks and more whites. And I'll try and finish the pirate, I just don't think I have the patience to render all of him

    The7Artist7: Cheers man, was feeling stressed out.

    So in my weird little way, I decided to 'take a break' by planning a schedule of 7 hours of drawing Got loads to scan and loads more to do, but here is my digi life painting from that schedule. It's okay but the tones on that lime were difficult to capture.

    Used too much white, but it was a pretty strong light. Ehhh no excuses.

    Scanned stuff, took way too long to scan man. Oh yeah, I see guests looking at this page quite a few times. All I can say is, sign up and get a SB. Best thing I ever did.

    Fucked up the eye position on my SP. It's funny, one of my eyes is at a slight tilt, just not that badly haha can't wait to see my SP in another 2 months

    That's a good days work! Your pencils are coming on nicely, and your digitals are unusually good. Did you use porn as a reference ?

    Man Made God: Yep, why not? We usually draw naked models anyway And cheers man, unusually good is not a compliment I receive often

    bigfooTrooper: Will do buddy

    Miles_:

    So urm just sketching around to wind down for the day. Pose no ref, I got to apply quite a bit of study to this. Not happy with the legs at all, will draw loads of legs tomorrow. Does anyone know a tutorial or good book for placing feet in the right position, or should I just use life? Oh yeah my secret target has been to get a really good SP before Christmas, hence them being daily lately. I think I'm almost there, just need to sort out my eyes. Need to set a new target on a new landmark.

    Lilnebo: Thanks

    So not started drawing yet today, I feel like actually winding down for a bit now, I'll do posemaniacs and SP as usual and maybe I painting because I enjoy them.

    Never really painted from mind and it's something I really want to start doing, but it's like ergh where do I start. Do I just keep painting from photos and life until it happens? Well applied some stuff I was reading about different types of light etc.

    No idea where this came from, just made a black blob and it developed from there. I'm proud of this because when I thought, how do I paint glass, I thought back to an astronaut helmet I drew a few pages back and just did it (I hope).

    Stuff for the latest challenge. Take 3 photos and insert spheres into them with according lighting etc. Only 2 at the moment. I don't think I did too well realism wise.

    EDIT: Fixed these sphere photos

    The light coming onto the sphere from the ground shouldn't be blue, it should be green, and darker, whereas the side that isn't lit by the sun, but leaning upwards should have bluer light.

    Your studies are great, if you keep going like this you'll be a pro in no time, haha. Keep it up!

    It's cool seeing the features and rendering sort of form. When I look back it doesn't seem like that much time, 2 months, but the start, which was really hard, seemed to go on forever. I've met some amazing people and seen some incredible art work in such a short space of time. I look forward to seeing where I am in another 2 months. I have my "Get good at SPs before Christmas" goal knocked down, I think my new target is "Develop a greater understanding colour temps and harmonys before the 24th of February." Gonna go relax until Christmas now, won't be posting till about New Years, but I will have a hell of a lot to show you Merry Christmas.

    For the first sphere, I think you need to paint the shadow really darker when it's in contact with the ball, a bit like you made for the second sphere ! Still in the first one, there is not enough sunlight, so I don't think you need tu put the highlight dot! Just add a lighter area ! Your improvment is awesome !

    One thing about your pencils, when you're laying down the initial tones, try to cover large areas with a few strokes, then work big to small like you would when painting. You can still get the directional hatching effect but you'll get less of that "scratchy" effect and smoother blending. You've actually already started this, when you look back at your older stuff, your hatching is more unified and you have better transitions. Look through some pencil-heavy skecthbook threads and you'll see what I mean about the initial tone. You might want to try using a range of leads too. We all have favourites but it's really useful if you can switch between hard and soft.

    Pretty cool to watch your improvement with those selfportraits O_o It's pretty huge!

    Hmm... Those red ball things up there.. I haven't done it before, but I think you made the second light source there too grey as it hit the ball. PieMonster probably hasright about it, anyhow.
    But well, it seems like you focuse much on eyes and the mouth in your facial studies, but what about the nose? Your noses aren't bad, but it seems ike you are less sure about that part, and you know, it's right in the middle ^^

    Great studies and nice fruit, keep it up! And keep on improving, you're doing great! And yes, thanks for your advice on my page!

    Hey thanks for the post. I know I gotta drop the anime,no excuse, but those are pretty old studies...at least one to two years... I'm self taught...and let's just say when I taught myself I was going through a Final Fantasy/DBZ type craze. So I pretty much skipped(to my detriment) all the life drawing and classical studies. I am having to relearn quite a bit, any help is welcomed and appreciated and you will certainly be seeing more studies. So again thank you, I really appreciate the time you took to post and share some wisdom.

    Man Made God: Cheers man, I think I've started following your advice, using bigger strokes first (I wasn't before..) but things usually end up being scribbled as I worked down into detail. Just need to take the time really to go down from big strokes into detail, but sound advice

    Hi, happy birthday!!!

    I'm really impressed by the consistency in your work and it looks like you're on the right track. The anatomy is coming along, but be sure not to rush it. Use your time.

    Keep it up

    zelda_geek: Thanks man, you're too right. I'm really impatient lately, not sure what it is.

    Feeling pretty low about my work today. Associating things with negativeness which is really really bad. Will sort myself out for tomorrow.
    This took me like half an hour, which is disgraceful really. Not taking the time and I'm not sure how to, just really wanna go procrastinate. I'm worried this is happening because I've not drawn a lot in the last week. Will read motivational stuff and do a ton of drawings.

    aha! gotcha! you scanned your moleskine! and we can see that your portraits are really small. they´re even smaller cuz I know the size of a moleskine!
    man, how are you gonna put detail in there?
    try to draw bigger. use A4 or at least the entire page of moleskine!

    otherwise looking great!!

    happy birthday btw.

    cheers

    bigfooT: Are we talking pocket or large moleskine. Because that was in my large, so it's an average sized drawing. I'm probably just making excuses, I'll do it for you
