    Cow at the crossroads

    hello friends of art

    Im philipp, 21 years old), currently living in berlin.Im following conceptart.org for a long time.
    Why am I here?-well, im a lazy pig and i think it will give me a lot of motivation to sketch every day(or nearly )


    Im not very good in drawing, but thats why I am here: I want to improve my skills.So, if you have some critics, please let me know.

    i just can say: I hope I'll be able to update daily, but im still in school, and sometimes it will be difficult...well see

    nothing left to say-so, here we go:
    i hope it works







    Im going to try out posemaniacs soon.

    haha, no way dude! hi, my name is philipp too =)
    gute skizzen, versuch bei den posemaniacs nur eine linie zu ziehen und nicht zu sehr auf die musklen zu schauen. posemaniacs sind gut um ein gefhl fr proportionen zu bekommen, aber auch nicht mehr…fr anatomy an sich gibts 2 wircklich gute bcher: loomis/bridgeman, beide findest du irgendwo im forum, einfach suchen

    good luck with everything!

    ps: I use a scanner: canon lide 200, less the 90 euro, really nice one.

    oh and your link in your signature doesnt work…, Id fix that!

    cheers

    Whoah! These are good! You seem to have good line economy without added scratchies all over the place, a guilty practice of mine, keep up your studies like this and you'll be kicking ass sooner than you might think, all of your figures could stand to be a bit elongated. I have the same problem with my scanner, all my more delicate middle tones vanish and the lines look really coarse and harsh, sometimes i just take a digi photo and adjust the light in PS

    Hi HerrleerzeichenS! just keep doing those studies! do them again and again, learning each time you do so until they slowly start being ingrained in your memory. That's what i try to when i do studies. keep it up man!

    You asked for it and so you shall receive

    First off I'd recommend getting down the at times boring basics. Perspective and anatomy. Learn to simplify, I mean really simplify into boxes and spheres. Learn perspective because it will help you understand form in space. Then learn human anatomy from bones to muscles and learn to simplify. "Copy" from books and analyze. Then simplify and also after "copying" from books draw from memory because that will make you memorize them better. Grow your discipline and always push further. TO become good you need to work hard and therefore become disciplined. Make a schedule which works for you and stick to it. Remember to have fun too. Oh and draw from life as much as you can it will be the greatest teacher ever!

    Also mir haben deine Hnde am Anfang am besten gefallen! Da stimmte irgendwie alles, von der Linienfhrung bis zu den Proportionen.
    Vielleicht solltest du versuchen einfach mal langsamer mit Referenzen zu zeichnen, denn du versuchst im Moment scheinbar vor allem schnelle Posen und dergleichen zu machen, aber es ist nebenbei auch wichtig langsam zu zeichnen (ich tu mich auch immer schwer damit, weil es immer eine Zeit lang braucht bis es dann pltzlich ganz gut aussieht ^^)

    keep your sketches comin'

    Hey, thanks for stopping by my thread.

    I noticed that you did a few Loomis head studies up there, but I don't see you employing that knowledge in the heads in this post. Don't simply see the object, work on really truly understanding it,. Really feel the planes and the mass of the face . Perhaps think of it as sculpting with the paper as your marble, think "solid". I think in doing this, you can make your faces look a good deal more 3D.

    Hope this helps, good luck!

    Hi HerrleerzeichenS
    cool, another guy of my age ( bin auch 18 ) from Germany! Nice sketchbook. I specially like your hand-studies. Portraits are nice as well. I would like to see some colored stuff from you.

    hehe you're right about the addicting effect of posemaniacs - I'd like to see some more detailed studies on the human body though. Should be easy for you, you already mastered the most difficult part: hands! (devilish bastards)

    Hey man. You're working hard, thats awesome. I like those hands you did further up with the guns, looks like a useful exercise. You should do studies from life, Bridgeman and Loomis, they'll help you a lot. Keep it up!

    Hello, thanks for dropping by my SB.

    Your Posemaniacs sketches are quite good; BUT keep working on your proportions and try to structure your drawings (esp. the faces) rather than rendering them as a mere 2D line. The proportions of some of your figures seem short and butty, you can try stretching them even further and keep comparing lengths and widths as you draw. Keep practising!

    yo dude, concerning your thread title, i think you can! just keep updating, draw and you'll get there! you definitely show talent. keep going with the posemaniacs as well, dunno how fast you do them, but try to do the 30-60 seconds ones, and dont look too often at your paper. For me that works great!
