    Lou's sketchbook March 1st

    I hate not being the artist I know I can be. So I'm finally going to get off my lazy ass and do something about it.

    Here's some art from Sunday.

    These are a bunch of 30 second gestures from posemaniacs. I'll be doing a lot more of these, because I'm rusty and slow and these should force me to focus on what's necessary and speedup my drawing.

    such a provocative thumbnail and no replies yet??
    you're doing the right stuff in my opinion, maybe have a little more fun with it to make it not seem so much like work. but its nice to see you're starting at gestures instead of intricate anatomy (which so many people do and they end up with complicated but unnatural figures). keep going and thanks for the reminder, im kindof just sitting on my lazy ass as i write this.

    Yea, I kinda figured myself as well, people aren`t that talkative round here...despite the so-catching name of this sketchbook! I really like what I see here, KEEP IT GOING, the potential is definitely there! Kudos for you for being so honest to yourself! If only the rest of us had the courage...

    grenappels - I'm actually having fun with the work. I wake up wanting to actually do my the art studies. Though I know I need to draw from imagination more along the way so that I can see what's clicking and whats not and what I then need to study more of. Don't worry, I'll keep going

    PxelSlayer - I'm glade you guys like the thumbnail. Thought I'd just state the obvious Thanks for the kudos!

    rasta-art - Thanks. I'll continue working my ass off until I get where I want to be. Not true, I'll probably have new goals by then, so I'll keep going!

    vayne108 - Thanks. Actually the gestures I still don't feel like 30 seconds is enough time for me. I was thinking of upping it to 1 minute, but I think I'll stick with this time for now just to see where it gets me. I'd like to be a lot faster, so I'm hoping this pays off.

    I didn't get to draw as much as I would have liked today. I was working on some freelance work (which was fun), but then my computer blue-screened on me. It's been a piece of crap for a while. I've tried all the usual tricks to bring it back to life, but I think it's finally dead for good. So that was a few hours gone, plus the few before that of lost work. I since had to migrate some stuff over to this old computer.

    Normally this sort of stuff would discourage me from drawing. Actually, there's usually something that pops up that gives me the perfect excuse to not draw. BUT I pushed through and did some art anyway! Why? Because I think it's starting to be a habit/want now and I've only been motivated and dedicated to this for a few days. Imagine if I continue! I'm so pumped

    Wow all of these studies are inspiring! It's great that you're enjoying too, sometimes I find that the hardest part is motivating myself to get started, then once I do I can go for hours. Keep it up!

    But... don't you sit down when you draw?

    You manage to work quite a lot in a single day, I'm impressed. You already manage great poses from imagination alone. Is that just from the studies you did now? I can't do full figure from imagination yet.

    Where are you studying Vilppu from?

    ticktocker - Thanks Unfortunately I slept in this morning, but I'll get started after I have some breafast/lunch. Then I plan on going for hours as well. Today is a drawing day!

    Zaorr - Thanks. Love your avatar btw, LOL!

    Dy.laneA - I hope to update this everyday thread daily. If I miss a day, I'll just update the following day. But I will be drawing EVERY day. I need to. I found in the past, that if I'm going strong on something and take a day or two break that it'll turn into a week, a month, or even longer. I'm not going to let that happen this time. I have goals I want/need to reach. Plus I'm having fun doing this anyway, so why stop

    Leonor - Thanks, I try. I'm not new to drawin. I've been drawing my entire life. But I was never dedicated to it. I always took it for granted. I've gone months and months drawing. When I got into a the game industry a few years ago as a 3D artist, I pretty much stopped drawing. My art hasn't grown in a LONG time. I'm glad you like my poses from imagination, but I still can't draw what is truly in my mind. Those are just weak attempts. I need to actually mix more drawing from imagination in with my studies. I think I'd learn faster that way. I'm actually studying Vilppu from his Drawing Manual. He also has the videos which are fantastic. But I'd rather just have the pages next to me to draw from.

    Sorry for sleeping in. I had planned on scanning yesterday's pages early this morning. I guess I just needed the rest. Not as much as I would've liked to to, but here they are.

    Poo on you Lou, You're such a bad dude! You never answer emails, or phone calls, for that matter. When are you going to come over to Coeur d' Alene and visit me. Anyhow, Totally happy to see you drawing again! Keep it up.

    darkly - Yo Nate! I haven't heard from you in a while. I haven't been answering your emails or phonecalls because I haven't gotten any :p Glad to see you're active on here and drawing as well. I'll send you a pm in a moment, buddy

    MattGamer - I agree, I do need to do longer studies. There's actually a lot I need to do. Glad you like my gestures!

    I didn't get as much done yesterday as I would've liked, but I'll try to see if I can do more tonight after I finish some work.

    From imagination... yeah, that head does NOT go with that body. EW. That's what studies are for though I just need to tackle my imaginative works more often to test what I've learned.

    really impressive amount of studies here. make sure you never start going through the motions, though. when doing quantities like this, it can be easy to get into the replication of it more than the study of it. both are important, but the presence of both is key.

    keep it up!

    sourgasm - Thanks. I totally agree with you concerning replication/study. Trying my best not to fall into that trap.

    Helltroll - Thanks! Will do

    Fumble - HAHA! I like how your comment says that I've updated almost everyday, and then I have a big ol' gap.

    Sorry for the lack of updates. My excuses include freelance work (in which I'm drawing but can't post anything), doing my taxes, and getting my computer to work again YAY! I've been drawing a little here and there during the past few days, but I didn't want to post an update every day with only one drawing so I waited until I had a bunch of pages
