    Very nice life drawing,,,,,, especially gramma life drawing! More of that please.
    tmbritton = "There's a lot of studies, but I don't think that I saw anything from life. Try to find some life drawing classes if you can. If not that, just grab some random complicated stuff and start drawing it. Doing it from life really helps the brain learn how to think in 3d terms when going from imagination. Because using photo reference is interpreting from 2d to 2d."
    I never thought it like that, thank you

    jonish, thank you! At the moment I'm trying to focus on my sketchings and on learning a decent anatomy/proportions/understanding of values.
    Maybe sometimes I will try a painting, but I think that a good painting need a good sketch as fundament ^_^ and then there's the thing of colours, I have to understand and learn about them

    2buiart thank you! yes it's lovely to draw her, she seems so innocent and fragile, she gives me so much sweetness ^_^
    Drawing from life is different that from photos, it's true; sometimes I find it easier (don't know exactly why LOL)

    I have a sketchbook!

    Hard working life drawing here, the poses are a bit static thought, and the legs often too short, but there is some good finds you seem to develop with your shadows.
    Keep at it!

    Update!
    First one is from reference. The others are from imagination.
    Note the first try at more dynamic poses (whoooaa I suck!)

    there's a nice fleshyness to your females, and i'm liking the curves. where are you getting your references from?

    my only crits at the moment are that your drawings look too flat and as if they can be blown away by air. try to catch and understand what you're scared of when approaching the paper.
    also, try using a darker pencil, these studies are very light (looks like HB).

    edit: i've noticed your sketches from imagination are mostly floating - they have no weight or sense of balance.
    teach yourself about weight distribution by simulating it on the paper.

    if you want a sense of speed and movement, you either have to go about it using the lines (for instance, wavy, ambiguous or jittery line), or think about physics and gravity, mass and weight (so you can 'push' the character around). i'm sure there are other ways too.

    if movement isn't so important for you, well, perhaps study form more, or look at sculptures.

    JustNonplussed my references? easy: http://www.exgirlfriendmarket.com/? ^_^
    About the pencil, I go from HB to 2B, but I don't have a scanner and my photocamera is a little cute oldie, so the quality is not that "WOOOW" (LOL); that's why it seems so light
    I know they are still flat...I'm on my first steps in the understanding of values, hopefully I will improve with exercise.
    Thank you also for the crit on weight/gravity, I will try to think more about it

    kingostas thank you!

    Sculptor-Robert-D thank you for stopping here!! I am doing my best to improve with pencil, I hope to be able of decent renders soon or late.
    Sculpture? hummm somethimes I have some fun with digital, using Zbrush, but I can't say I'm good at it! LOL
    But I could think about doing something.... :p
    It's amazign when people like what you do, someway exciting and surprising too...it gives a spicy taste to the feeling I have while drawing...the complete joy and pleasure

    I have a sketchbook!

    Hey nice sketchbook, I think your character/figure stuff is really strong, the shading's great in your pencil work - makes me want to practice a lot more. I also want to draw people mainly... but it's soo hard, practice practice

    Keep it up cos you're getting really good!

    Hi there!
    Great pencil work and I bet a lot of people had told you that. It's good exercise to build your foundations for value, color etc.. But I think that you shouldn't wait with other aspects of painting until mastering the pencil. Things like drawing stuff from life, value study, environments are hapefull too. Variety is a good thing and could influence your pencil works and vice versa.

    nice studies, you seem to be working hard one thing i notice is that your sketches seem to be almost too outlined which flattens the figs, I'd suggest gesturing in the correct shapes and making sure everything is accurate before caging in the figure, try varying your line weight, leaving the darker lines for the points of highest tension as it will add some depth to the figure sketches. hope that makes some sense , anyway keep it up!

    Alex, thank you! I love to draw figures, also if I'm still not that good, figure is my best favoured thing to draw ^_^
    Just continue with your practising, you'll se the result!
    serio yes yes...hmmm...I understand what you say; the reason why I'm focusing on drawing is that I need some fundamentals; I mean, if I can't manage to understand the shadows and forms with a pencil, it will be harder with painting/colours/brushes and such. Or so it seems to me.
    You are right about varying subjects, the idea of drawing objects honestly scares me...good reason to start with it, I suppose ^^
    James I'm struggling in the direction you are suggesting...If I look at my older works I can noticed I improved a little, but I haven't still found the good workflow I suppose; it's like...hum...I "know" what one must do with the line, but then I'm not able to apply it.
    I hope it's just a question of practice and not my being a complete dumb!!

    I have a sketchbook!

    Ehi Alice, anch'io penso che debba mettere più varietà nei soggetti, secondo me l'anatomia femminile ormai la padroneggi benissimo o__O !
    Spingiti fuori dalla zona di confidenza...
    L'idea di concentrarti prima sulla matita è molto saggia, è quello che dovrei fare io, e invece...

    Kingostas, somethimes it's interesting to try a master copy, just to remember how bad I am in painting!! Apart from this, the main difficulties were about the size of the original to copy from...I found just some little pic on google, so I couldn't see the details in a decent way

    The Whistler thank you thank you for appreciating my works, it's woderful ^_^ and thank you for the stars

    Lakeland acutally, I feel like being really really slow at drawing...I wish I could do more! It's the best thing on earth, the more funny and meaningful for me...it simply gives me the opportunity to feel a little better, that's why I can't stop!! ^_^ I wish I could stay out of home and draw people, or to have friends to portrait...but I'm taking all the best I can from what I have around, and I'm happy! Thank you for stopping here, it's always a pleasure!

    And now, for the fear of your eyes, a digital painting!!
    I wanted to take a fast break from pencils, and I decided to work on this little piece from imagination.
    What I learned:
    - I need to learn more about texture brushes
    - again, I need to understand volumes
    - colours, colours...omg!

    Back to my pencils, I need a subject to inspire me and make a finished piece!

    Smaller so that you dont sink inside. You wanna study color reaction(light shadow etc)on face? Make a smallers and start understanding every single stroke you put inside.You have the talent to boost your skill faster, so do it

    well...let's start!

    Drawings from reference.
    if this is your early work, my mind boggles at what you improve to.

    its all very good work. I like the face of the lady with the (steampunk?) eyecover.

    have nice days & be well

    Fineliner studies! Awesome. Love it. Your figures look good too! And keep tackling the digis =0 Studying masters is a good way to learn, so keep that up, and maybe study from life too, like, still life with different materials, that pays off bigtime. Keep going! o_o
