Emil wants to learn how to draw & paint
Hi CA . My name is Emil and i have finally decided to start a sketchbook
GO TO LAST PAGE FOR NEW STUFF...
---edit 18. feb.---
moved the pictures from my first post to my second post, so i can change the picture being showed in the sketchbook dropdown menu.
Oh... and perhaps i should add a little info about myself . I'm 21 years old, and i study computer science () and business administration. Drawing and painting is my spare time hobby
btw... critique, comments, suggestions etc are VERY welcome
--- edit 2. June ---
Got my degree in computer science and business administration with a average grade of 10,1 (danish scale, its kinda like a B) - daily updates from now on
--- edit 20. dec 09
I guess it is about time that i update this first post with some up-to-date information. I'm now taking a Master in Software Development at the IT-university of Copenhagen. And i'm almost done with my first semester there.
I began drawing a few months ago - and this is my progress so far:
PS: most of the drawing are of statues.

Hi there Fumble! Welcome to CA.
You started with drawing few months ago? You´re showing incredible control over your pencil for that! Most of those studies are looking good, of course, there are some anatomy flaws. I would suggest to take a look at some Loomis and Bridgman books for that.
Great start anyways, show some more! I would also like to see some work from your mind. Smile!

Mr. Smile: Thanks for the comment . I have just downloaded Loomies and Bridgeman - so i will start doing some studies soon
I did my first digital painting about 3 weeks ago - an apple.
My brother then suggested that i should start by doing black and white
All of them was done from photo reference:

Great work on all of the studies, perticularly like your heads! On top of the suggestions by Mr.Smile i'd recommend Gottfried Bammes book Die Gestalt des Menschen, it's in german so you might not be able to read it but it has some great drawings.
^Some examples of what you'll find in it.

You JUST started drawing a few months ago?!
Did you JUST start painting as well?!
Please say yes, because if this is beginning work,
you're going to be most excellent!

Imaginary: Thanks . I will take a look at the book, i know a little bit of German , but then again, a picture says more then a thousand words
oomgawa: Thank you . I must confess though, most of my drawings look quite bad, i chose the best ones for my first post.
- Posemaniac (90 sec. and 4 min poses)
- Life drawing from a statue made by Michelangelo Buonarroti. (took me 2 ½ hour to make)

Wow, man, your greyscale ref-paintings are doing great! You seem to learn fast The old fiddler is my favourite so far ... amazing how despite the fuzzieness of the portraits in general the photographic feeling still comes through in the faces!
Keep it up!
No skill still isn't a new side.
