    Your digital stuff rocks! Your pencils could use a bit of working on though, so focus a bit more on improving in that department.

    Good work on the b&w studies, really digging the violinplayer and the boxers.

    Imaginary: Thanks . I do find pencil drawing a lot more difficult than digital painting. *Note to self:* devote A LOT more time to pencil drawing/shading.

    Inkfish: Thanks Inkfish!!


    Todays update:
    An Indian chieftain. Took me about 4 hours to make. It's mostly from imagination, but some photos of old Indians help me along the way.
    My initial sketch was supposed to be an old chieftain, but when i started shading him he became younger and younger .

    Hi Fumble , your digital stuff is getting better and better, but I suggest you do some perspective studies too. It will help you a lot.
    You can start with drawing primitives. Try to simplify your drawings (heads,...).

    Lyno: Perspective studying sound like a good idea - ill give it a try. Thanks

    Considering that i haven't updated i quite a while, this update is poor - Tried to do more drawing, but baaah not enough time.

    Some poses, heads, a cloth study and a speedy.

    today's update:
    - Some poses
    - Heads
    - a MMA study
    - A WIP of a ork Driva Boyz. It is done completely from imagination. I'm having a lot of trouble with it though. First off i dont know if the perspective is good or not. Secondly i think it looks kind of "flat" . I'm pretty much stuck, help!

    For a guy who just started drawing, your heads are amazing, mate. I love how confident your lines are, and your shading is really coming along. Keep updating!

    Dude you are doing all the right stuff, your tonal studies are amazing keep it up. You have inspired me to do more myself.

    Just some stuff I noticed that we have in common that you could chew on:
    Using an erasor in drawing helps with focus, it has the effect of wanting you to draw stuff right the first time around, at first you use it alot but less and less as you get more confidence, Digital has the same effect as you can erase overpaint etc, untill things look right. if you force dicipline on yourself it will improve but you have to balance fun and exploration in there or it won't be that much fun.

    Secondly the digital media has another effect of showing you correct tonal relationships, notice how dark those darks really are an how little halftones might differ, contrast experience,

    Now what I noticed is that when moving to pencil, I swap to my pencil brain, so all that observations go out the window, the tip or cue I'd like to give you and myself is to bridge the gap in differant media so that your learning will come through in all of them. I can see it peeking in your work especially your last bit but the problem sometimes is that we might default to older styles or habits. Don't let that happen.

    Lastly, outline is traditional way to communicate knowledge of what's there, I need to break that rule in my mind that says that outline is the way, what about overlap, what contours are actually visible etc? Construction maybe but when drawing I need to kick wanting to state knowledge by drawing outlines of it. It's just that I drew outline since I started as a child, it's an old habit but it's time for it to go, unless it's construction, so I guess I need to have a clear intent on when I am constructing and when I am drawing.

    Lionsword : Well, i guess im close at some sort of half-year anniversary thingy, so "just started" isn't really the right way to put it, but thanks anyways

    zaorr: those observations are so true - thank you ! Especially the point about transferring what you learn i one media to another. I will definite try to be better at doing that.

    Todays update:
    some pencil drawings and some mega-fail digitals

    Hehe, fail-drawings are important, man and great to look at if there's also kick-ass studies present like your boxers or those noses from the last update. I really enjoy your dedication, man! Don't slow down, please!

    Ok, I said i was going to do a MMA study tonight, but my master-study took waaaay longer then i had imagined, so no room for MMA study. The master-study is of a painting by Rembrandt called "Old Man in Military Costume". It took me alll day to make (7 - 8 hours). I must say i'm pretty happy with the result, and i really feel that i learned a lot by doing it .

    realy nice ref stuff - and keep going with drawing poses - maybe try some other media like charcoal or marker - and maybe try to do some environments just to vary themes

    Man, latest study is really dope.
    I've noticed your lacking a bit of female drawings in general, I used to avoid it at all costs, scared that I'll make it too masculine (still do lol) but you can only learn from mistakes. keep drawwwwing

    oh and thanks for dropping by my SB
