    tmth's sb updated & going stronger still 05.12

    Good day everyone, my name is Tim (or Tymoteusz in my weird-ass language ). I've lurked these fora for some time, thinking of joining "when I'm ready". Just recently I came across a quote that nobody is truly ready to start anything - there is always something to improve, one thinks. So I decided to take the plunge straight away and start a sketchbook thread here.
    I apologise for using this excuse, as I can imagine you guys see it in most noobs' threads, but for now I can only post what I draw with a tablet. I don't have a scanner yet, but I do sketch with pencil whenever I can. I'll try to post scans as soon as possible.
    I promise I'll take all critique without defending myself. Please remind me if I fail to do so.

    Let's start. Here's a quick drawing I did as a fanart of a game, and some sketches (done while reading Bridgman). (MOVED TO THE NEXT POST)
    Destroy me!

    Yesterday was mostly me doing exercises from "Drawing on the Right Side of Brain", so there's only one sketch not consisting of pure contour drawings/ copying upside-down Picasso.
    I guess I need to put something to critique center, just to seek attention

    Faces, faces, faces.

    Today I bring you my attempt (and by 'attempt' I mean 'awesome trainwreck, fuck yeah') at drawing a guy squatting, which in the end made me realise how much do I need to anatomy.

    Hi there! Welcome!

    The "Fuzzy lines I'm a great artist" bit made me laugh so you deserve a bump. Unfortunately that's the idea I think most beginners get when they start sketching. They scratch and scratch like the paper is itching. I know I did it and sometimes it comes back when I'm nervous.

    Keep sketching and maybe be more patient in each study? Don't rush it through.

    Leonor - Thanks for the reply! It's encouraging to have someone respond at last.
    Yeah, I've been reading other people's threads and decided that line quality is now the most important thing for me to improve (as it is for some other beginners), so now I'm basically sketching whenever I can on my handy little paper sketchbook, swearing and giving myself an imaginary punch for each line I go over without good reason.
    My life is pain now.

    Hey man, don't be fooled, line quality is not the most important thing right now for you. Getting out there and drawing more is, do what you feel helps you improve, study artists you admire and in time line quality will come natural to you. I once thought as you did but line weight is something that is learned through practice drawing anything and everything. Mainly by drawing figure drawing and studying other artists. Hope this helps. =-]

    Go attend some life drawing classes, it will help you with natural form and seeing simple shapes with in the human figure. Have you even had any figure drawing classes as of yet?

    JMonsterDesign, miycko - thanks for the replies!
    I actually am practicing a lot recently, from reference as well as life. To be honest I haven't looked for an open life drawing class. I guess I should. I'm at schedule 3E of Nicolaides, it's hard but satisfying and keeps occupied with work Apart from my pal Nico, I've started doing exercises from Yoisti's threads and Environmentoring class, but I find it just too much. I have to consciously restrain myself from becoming a jack of all trades. Being involved in making concept art assets for a game doesn't help to stay focused either
    I love it, every day more. I hope this enthusiasm will stay when my uni classes begin...

    Oh and here's some thing I'm working on, but probably will remake from scratch, as I don't like the direction it's going in. I promise when I get a scanner or a decent camera I'll flood this thread with content, but for now, have some BOOBS. (uh, I think I resized it too small. oh well)

    p.s. LeechBlock is saving my life and makes me draw. I can't access youtube! SO FREE!

    Update!
    I've been busy slacking off the last few months, but nonetheless I filled up two itty bitty notebooks with pen drawings, plus some photoshop. Also, I've been attending those life drawing classes where we draw a model for four hours straight, which is the awesomest thing ever forever. Too bad the drawings are 100x70 and I have no camera
    aaaanyway, here are some of my sketches.

    Update!
    This is what I've been doing lately, just experimenting with different approaches to thumbnails when creating character concepts for a game. I still seem to have a short attention-span and never finish them, but it just feels so good not to finish my pictures when compared to my four-hour straight live drawing classes. I hope it would not do me any harm.
    Over the christmas period I'll try to take a good photo of my huge life-drawings, but we'll see how they turn out.
