    Ah quickies!

    Your eye for catching the overall proportions is getting better.
    However there's still plenty of room to improve, i don't remmember who said that, but it goes somewhat like this: "Don't try to draw everything as fast as you can, in that given short time draw as much as you can as precisely as you can."

    Hope that helps, and thanks for constant feedback!

    Thanx, and I do agree that I am far more confident with a pencil than a stylus. I still very much a beginner with the digital medium. Also I had a very hard time posting images on here at first, so that is why a lot of those pages were very small. As far as the still goes, I took a photo of that in my room, but I've been very unfocused to get to work, and yes we could soon share are still life works with each other.

    Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook. Good to see another 3AM-tist here hehe.


    Keep going with your studies, but start considering a line of action as your first stroke before anything else (or at least try this method and decide if you want to keep using it or not), I keep using this image as an example:

    Keep-Going SKETCHBOOK - Updated on 20th June

    One single line that sums up the whole movement of your character, usually resembles the spine and the arm that has the most movement, and for my work it sums up the leg that's supporting most of the characters weight too, and any objects the character might be holding (like the baseball bat there).

    It's used for cartoons here but derrives from tons of life drawing beforehand, and can quickly give you a great one-lined guide to plot the rest of your studies / characters to.

    Keep going.

    the gesture drawings are looking cool just one critique ( you wanna get better in figure drawing? so you have to understand the anatomy of muscles and bones so clear ! ) , do a lot of anatomy studies and one other more improtant thing is draw from life
    good luck

    AlexTooth- thank you alex, you come like a brease of fresh air; i keep telling myself i need to get those basics down and leave the 'fun' stuff for later. but i like anatomy studies as well, i'd just like to paint them, that's all. here's the first still life! will do more of those for sure

    Mörtn- haha i love courage wolf! i still have him on my desktop, and i don't think he'll go anywhere. thanks for the input. i took metal, skin and wood pictures today.

    Obacmar- thank you!!

    Delay- thank you delay, appreciate it!

    dblock- got all excited today and actually finished one of those still life. lose unconcentration and get drawing!! don't be lazy!! haha

    Aryeh- i love algenpfleger's work! it's one of my biggest influences. thanks!

    yongs- yeah, he's that sort of guy. no matter what he says, it ends up motivating me. thank you young!

    Baudolino- thank you! i'm really looking forward in seeing more in your sketch book as well! your figure drawings are inspiring

    Lightship69- lol lightship! you really made me laugh! after scrolling back a bit and seeing how many bones i drew already, it appears to be so! would come in handy haha
    thank you!!

    Shuty- thank you Shuty! and you motivate me to work even harder myself!

    Icecold- thanks ice! i can say the same thing to you too, it's helping me a lot. i used that cylinder construction you showed me in the still life from the post. please tell me what you think of the sketch. appreciate it

    BlightedArt- thank you for dropping by! yes haha, although it usually doesn't get that late. 2am tops. also, thank you for the help! i don't always know what to compose the flow line out of. sometimes i just go from one arm to the other just because it feels right or it's a lot of space in between. i fear going about it like that to much because i don't want to get a to smooth looking action. it feels unreal or a cartoony feel i don't know..

    WaSsiM- thank you Wassim, that's what i'm concentrating on right now.

    Did a few posemaniacs today and some more arm studies.
    Also, i watched some videos about colour theory and values etc.
    Made me want to add some graphite behind the tree leaves i did on the other page.
    Was surprised with the result! It really pops more.

    And did one of the still life from my reference.
    I don't really like how the bottle turned out, but i like the folds, and the colours.
    Didn't expect to find them so easily as i did.

    Delay- Usually when i do posemaniacs, i concentrate on proportions-perspective stuff, and do them quick. 60-90sec.
    So i'd have to spend more do get the 3d shape in, but then the pose would change. I'll do a few more long studies
    and concentrate there, thank you Delay!

    I did a photo study today. I concentrated on the colour scheme a lot, and i think i pretty much got it.
    Failed on the hand-folds part and the head. The similarity is nowhere to be found! :s
    Also, now that i see them one next to each other so close, i can see that i changed the position of the head,
    and from a downwards pose, actually made it an upwards one. Which can be clearly seen b the neck length.

    Then I tried changing the light source, first with over painting , changing brush settings, dodge and burn.
    But it didn't turn out well at all. Then I tried with a gradient overlay and a rendered light source. Still no good.
    I guess you have to paint it all over again?

    Nice subject and lighting for the still life. Next time you should try doing a few thumbnails to think about composition.

    I OBJECT!!! I haven't colour picked at all, in any of these! I'm most proud of that ice, why'd you think that?!
    I changed the colour swatches on the right menu thing to the HSB sliders, which is a lot more useful.
    And that study took me the whole day, so I paid good attention to what i was doing.

    Great new updates... your latest paintings are very good! I really like your speed, you seem to upload new works almost every day. Continuous work is the best way to improve in my opinion!

    dblock - very true, thank you block! i considered doing better composition, but i ended up scribbling

    Icecold- except my objection, i'd like like to add thank you for the input

    Delay - thank you! appreciate the comment

    Baudolino - thank you! i see most improvement when i draw regularly. at first it feels like a work up, remembering how i use to do things, then constantly get more comfortable and then the improvement. with daily stuff, you skip a lot of the first part. and actually, right now it is daily, only that sometimes it is passed midnight, so after a few days it appears like i posted in the same day

    More digital painting.
    Two envo studies and a still life after my own ref.

    I think i didn't capture the essence, and went into details to much, perhaps to soon.
    And the background is a bit brighter than the original. I add the reference next to the drawing,
    after i finish it so the difference really pop up. I really like that.

    With the envos, i need to work more on atmosphere and composition.

    edit: did a few more pencil figure studies. i gradually concentrated more and more on flow line

    When I finished it, I couldn't believe it myself, so it is understandable ice.
    It's my best so far, and i am doing some more digital now, to be sure it's not a coincidence.

    dblock- thank you!

    Mörtn- didn't use it at all actually! i played with the hardness, but never all the way. mostly flow variation.
    thank you, i'll draw more with the hard brushes and tackle portraits as well.

    Delay- thanks! i intend to do more

    BlightedArt- thank you! the string and the background is what i actually like the most xD

    Posemaniacs and Michael Hampton studies. Also, a still life study. I'm trying to blend less, and scribble more.
    I think i've figured something out again xD Must experiment.

    In a couple of days i should be moving, and uni starts, so i'm trying to be as productive as possible while i still can.

    I can't get over how amazingly close you are able to get your colours to refs... Super work! The last few pages really feel like you've reached a sort of tipping point where things are really working out for you. Keep at it m'dear.

    Since I got a couple of commisions coming up, I'll most likely have to squeeze in some more studies in the next couple of weeks or so. Thanks for the compliment. I will pay more attention to my soft and hard edges though. As far as #103, I may have strecthed the jaw a lil too much.

    Thanks for dropping by my SB. Your studies are looking good. The colors are pretty much spot on. You might want to do those still's from life instead from photo's to get more accurate colors that the camera can't capture. Keep up the hard work!

    Wow you really have a lot of studies, and your dedication shows! Your landscapes are some of your strongest work, I especially liked the watercolors a few pages back. Your new color nude in photoshop shows a lot of improvement with the tools in photoshop as well as the figure in general. Its always a big help to me when working with proportions of any kind to look closely at the angles lines and their alignment in the figure or object. Keep up the great work I'm looking forward to seeing how you improve with your next work form observation maybe from the still life photos you posted?
