    Well, good luck with the famous artists course Asatira. I hope you get what you want out of it. I think there is an older course by the likes of rockwell, fawcett etc, that you might want to ask them about as well. Anyway, it's okay if you don't update as much, you'll probably be busy but I hope that you'll keep working hard.

    Congrats on the job and have fun with the course.

    Can't seem to load page 6 atm, so I'll check back later if I missed anything.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Hello, everyone! I hope you all have been well. Me? Obviously not all that well in the art arena. I've been gone from the board for at least two months, and obviously haven't updated my sketchbook since August. Not good.

    It's a new year, and symbolically at least a chance to start over. I want 2012 to be the year I get out of the artistic plateau I find myself in. I want to make my anatomy stronger, my figures more dynamic, and to increase the variety of my subjects. I've given myself the challenge of drawing at least one picture a day, based on the theme for the month. My goal is to use this to draw everyday. The theme drawings are meant to be a minimum; I wish to also get more studies done and improve my technique. But I've learned that just learning for the sake of learning isn't really all that fun. But learning to be able to apply what I've learned to a picture I want to do, that is fun and will hopefully lead to more progress.

    To finish up the wordy part of this post, I have done all right so far on my challenge. I've been meeting the daily theme drawings (men this month) so far, at least. These helped to drive home to me how much I need to spend more time learning and prepping; I want to spend the last half of the month with drawings that have a little more thought put into them for things like composition. So let's use the last two weeks' worth of images as a benchmark for 2012. And here's to me being more active here again.

    Black Spot: I will definitely try to.

    More guys, some of them fanart for a timed daily challenge, and finally some gestures.

    I love the gestures - they are very lively and I do see that coming through into your line work.

    Finished off February, and starting off on March. This month will be most likely be focused on studies and observational drawings than the last two months because the challenge theme is plants, a subject I've wanted to do for a while, but I tend not to focus on too much. (I went to school to be a zoologist first, so while I enjoyed the botany classes, haven't done much else with plants since) So, yeah.

    The silhouette works better than the detail. You need to let the light dictate the form on the apples and not a line.

    Black Spot: Yes. I rely on contour too much, probably because I've been avoiding how to do form through value. And texture, too, as you can see below. Lots to work on.

    I like the bananas. You could do the pitcher plant in the same way as well. If you drew your lines lighter and then worked up to the dark areas you might find it easier.

    Black Spot: Thanks. The bananas look better looking back. As for building up values, I think I'm learning it a little faster now because I've done so many more from life than I have in the recent past. Still in fits and starts, but learning.

    The last few drawings I've been doing have had me branch out a little more than I have in the past. Played around with colored pencils, and did some pieces on toned and colored paper.

    Some deviation from the drawings from life or reference with some fictional plants.

    Hey, sorry I haven't been to your sb in a while, life has been busy. I like the plant theme that your doing, they are a hard subject because of their delicate nature. It's a coincidence seeing you draw that audrey plant as I just watched little shop of horrors a couple day's ago. I don't have much to critique except for the hands being a bit small on your female figures. Sorry if my post is all over the place and I'll check in again soon.

    They're better on the coloured paper as it takes the place of a mid tone. IF you don't want to push the values you could redraw them in ink in a clean style and see how that looks.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Black Spot: Ink does work well for me, for multiple reasons. I guess I can't quite shake the linear/B&W approach I picked up from animation and comics. That said, I do want to learn how to do values, and I'm glad the plant studies helped me to delve more into that.

    KT: Thanks for dropping by. Proportions, always tricky.

    Anywho, the last few days of March and the plants, which includes some pokemon fanart (they're grass types, they count! ), and the start of April's animals, plus some human gestures. That's the only thing I didn't like: I did not do that much studies and gestures outside of the plants. Got to make sure I do that going forward.

    Enough talk!

    Nearing the end of April. Unfortunately, I won't be meeting my challenge for the animal drawings this month, but I have been drawing everyday, so that's something.

    Good to hear you've been drawing everyday, it really helps. Make sure you don't pressurise yourself all the time, though. That can sap the fun away from drawing.

    Anyway, I'm really liking the rhythm in the figure studies. I feel you capture it very well. Also, there was a waiter you posted some time back, really loved that.

    On this one, though, judging from the guy's face, I'd say the light is coming from their right. Which means there should be a lot of shadow on the high-neck the girl is wearing. Yeah, sorry, I'm nit picking. Good luck with keeping up to your schedule, and keep updating this sketchbook.

    I like the bulls. I think it's because there is more variation on the edge lines. Even if you still want to draw outlines, more variation in weight will speak louder than no variation. You know I only nit pick as well to hopefully help.

    your control over your pencil lines has definitely improved. I've noticed too you have a knack for subtle expressions, that's awesome! I'd try to be loser in some of your finished/clean works though. Your gestures have such grace to them, you lose that a little in some of fleshed out characters. Also, glad to see you setting goals too, keep at it!!!

    April? April?! Long story short, lost a job, hunted for a job, got a job teaching again. Big attention and time sink. No art. Man, I hate being inconsistent.

    A few random pieces that I liked, and some warm up gestures from this month.

    Stuff from last week or so. Includes a blue pencil study of a character by William Joyce made from one of his books.

    Some stuff from earlier in the month. I have more, but I haven't scanned. (and it's mostly gestures, so kinda boring)

    Love the mug sketches - nice and loose with volume.

    Black Spot, Adam@Lyme: Thanks.

    Work. Glad to have it, but teaching takes up a lot of time and energy. Just a couple of sketches from a recent natural history museum visit. Pen drawings of a Northern Gannet, some dinosaur skeletons, and a number of mammal skulls.
