    The shameful sketchbook of the flowereater

    What is a flowereater?
    One might say it is a strange little animal, who hides in a cave and spends its
    days drawing on the walls, throwing rocks at anyone who takes one step too
    near of its lair, fearing they might take even one glance at the shameful
    drawings on the walls.

    As the flowereater spent his whole life in a cave, it had no way of obtaining
    any sort of formation in the art of drawing-on-the-walls-of-a-cave.
    Therefore, in hope of finding the secrets of drawing-well-on-the-walls-of-a-cave
    the strange animal went on the internet (yes, it had internet in its cave) and
    created a virtual sketchbook, where people could gaze upon his drawings, safe
    from any rock throwing.

    You may notice most (all?) of those paintings/drawings look somewhat
    unfinished. This is due to laziness or loss of interest... or most likely lack of
    skill. I pretty much don't know where i'm going or where to go when I'm
    drawing, so my drawings often look unfinished even when i reach a point
    where i don't know what to do about them. The last one is a work in
    progress though, i intend to finish it and any tips to keep me from that
    "unfinished look" would be quite welcome!

    Light studying on a horse! wee~

    Hello again! Since those last two scans of my sketchbook came out
    so bad, i tried to figure out *why*. I came to the conclusion that
    (a) I drew too small, (b) not enough knowledge of light and (c) I may
    not have drunk a pepsi the day I drew those.
    While (c) may seems the most likely answer, i thought "what the heck!
    Why not try doing a quick light study first anyways?".
    I looked up a tutorial on the net, did a quick study on photoshop, then
    in my sketchbook and then i tried to use my newly acquired knowledge
    on some random photo of a random unnamed horse.

    So, here's the result of today's light study on unnamed horse, which
    took me about 4h hours to draw.

    I'm still not satisfied with the quality of those scans... while it may
    be much better than yesterday's, they still look kind of dirty/grainy...

    Awesome work for being semi-finished, lol, that horse is awesome by the way

    Replikant: thanks!

    Here's some more stuff: The Wips of a master copy from William bouguereau
    and some attempts at gesture drawing... attempts being the key word. I'm
    awful when I try to draw fast and when I don't, I draw awfully slow -_- ...

    Great stuff, only thing that really needs improvement is the hair. But keep up the good work anyways.
