    Hey mang...sorry to hear about the exhaustion and insomnia. Get some rest and come back refreshed.

    That brick wall you're talking about is what you should fight through. It's the barrier you have to get through. Be sure to come back when you're rested and start kicking ass again. Remember that any drawing you feel is worthless counts toward your 10,000 bad drawings count.

    p sage Hey man, thanks for the support!

    DeeStar Thanks! I think it is too.

    Chantz Hegemann Thanks dude. Hope you had a great vacation.

    Weeeeeeeeell. I'm Back. (explicit lyrics)

    No, I'm not dead. I was planning on coming back with a whole bucket full of awesome pictures, but I didn't get around to it. I figured a week was long enough to be sleeping, and when you're sleeping for a good twelve hours a day, that week goes by fast. So anyways, I'm back, it feels good to be back, and I'm sure you guys all missed me.

    I can't say my motivation has returned, but I am certainly well rested. I'll be updating regularly again, though it probably won't be daily. I don't want to get burnt out again.

    And here's the few doodles I did when not sleeping. No ref, all from head.

    I like my pens.

    Valve Hey dude! Yeah, I'm digging the improvement too. It's nice to see progress. Anyways, I'm back, and ready to start our sketch group activities again! Got any ideas?

    Today's doodles, just trying to get back in the swing of things and get the engine warmed up, not really focusing on anything yet. Second page poses are from head.

    I'm also trying out a new scanner setting. How's it look?

    That scanner setting is total shite, man
    LOL.

    Bridgman butts. Cool

    Paying attention to what you're doing is probably good advice (for all of us)... coming from the headless Bridgman guy

    You have improved.

    Keep it coming , I think designing a space ship would be pretty tizzzight. I am thinking more on the lines of using ink than digital painting. Focus should be on perspective?

    p sage Thanks! Good scanner, bad settings, what needs changed?

    Valve Spaceship design? Like the layout, interior, and ortho views, or just a single drawing depicting a spaceship? Either way, i'm game.

    Small update today, minor poses to get back into them and a small color study thing in PS, trying to blend colors. I thought that I wouldn't update if it's just one or two things, but it just didn't feel right not showing something because it was small or waiting till I have a huge dump.

    Oh, and song of the day: Some Postman.

    Valve No sense in pushing yourself and not getting anywhere. Schematics sound fine with me, what about a due date? Next friday/saturday maybe?

    p sage Didn't I tell you? I bought my scanner and printer from magical gnomes. They told me that the printer will never run out of ink and the scanner will instantly make everything I scan in twice as awesomer. However, this only works if it's tuned to the right settings, and they lost the manual. The printer's pretty sweet though, saves me a lot of money in ink cartridges .

    While working through some poses today, I hit number 21, and something just clicked, some little gear turned over in my head, and I just got it. I don't know what exactly it is, and when I tried to figure it out, the more I tried to define it, the harder it got to focus on it. But something is there. I learned something.

    And song of the day is We Are All On Drugs, by Weezer.

    Hmmm, my opinion is that form can not be represented by lines. Form is something that you don't always have to see, and it seems lines are too "representative." Maybe I'm just some crazy crack head that doesn't know what he's talking about?

    Anyway next Saturday sounds good, are you up for letting pearscrow join in?

    Keep it coming, let it fllllooooooooowwwwww

    p sage "I must flow. Flow is the mind-setter. Flow is the little-thing that brings total creation. I will face my flow. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the flow has gone there will be everything. Only enlightenment will remain." *is shot*

    Valve I think I half agree with you. The form of an object is an idea that we must keep in mind when drawing it. However, we must communicate that form through the use of not only line, but also value and color, and even then the true form of the object might not be completely shown. In fact, it's probably impossible to show the full form of an object, since form is more of an abstract, three-dimensional idea, and you can never see every side of an object. I think a better restatement would be that form cannot be fully represented by lines.
    Either that or I'm a crazy crack head, too.
    Yeah, pearscrow can join if they want to, I'm fine with that.

    Small update today. I'm fairly happy with the poses today, my biggest qualms being my line quality and correct anatomy and proportioning.

    Song of the day? Silence. It can be better than any music some days. Either that or the cars going up and down the road.

    These are some really awesome sketches.
    I just wish I could draw like that.
    The problem is that I am unable to practice everday.
    Its easy to get inspired once in a while and start drawing, but the hard part is to do it everyday.

    All right... update! Minotaurs... buffalo... posemaniacs. It's all good. In fact, that is the path to enlightenment. Minotaurs, buffalo, and posemaniacs.

    Oh yeah. Post more, too.

    silentarrowz Motivation is a big issue, I know myself. What I can suggest is to take advantage of the times when inspiration does strike and make a habit of plowing through when it doesn't. Keep a folder of all the inspiring images you find, and a list of all the pump-up music that gets you going, and use those to help motivate.

    p sage POST MOAR?! Too true, I'm slacking, bad Hamms! >

    Fudged around with poses today, did some from posemaniacs, and a few from the head.
    I started with 30 seconds, but just wasn't feeling very enthused, so on a whim I tried 15 seconds and all of a sudden the flow came back, and I realized just how much I was enjoying the drawing, enough to do an entire other page.

    Aren't I just amazing? *shot again*

    15 seconds? You're criminally insane.

    I had pork chops tonight. Very salty. Tasty, though.

    Oh, and let's kick Valve's ass for not posting anything for two f*cking weeks!

    p sage Well then, they had just better put me in jail then! And salty pork chops are delish.

    JoshDArtist Hellooooo. Thanks, I like quickies, they're quick and not frustrating.

    Valve Thanks! I mean...THERE HE IS! GET 'EM!

    Sorry, didn't get the chance to update yesterday because I downloaded a looooot (read: a loooooooooooot) of Massive Black's vids and have been watching them. I haven't gotten through them all yet, and I need to watch them a couple more times before passing judgment, but they are really informative so far, at least for looking into the pro's methods.

    Some more 15 seconds poses to taunt the po-pos. I'm getting better at getting into the groove and flow, but I'm still missing something from when I first felt it. The head sketches I did while watching some of Jason Chan's stuff. I envy those who have the dexterity of wacoms.

    You get more done in 15 seconds than... the army does before 9 am.

    Or something.

    What you're missing? The ANGER. Angry lines. Seriously though. Emotion in your lines + force + all good things + use the force

    Nice skull too.

    p sage Morning prep. Check. Emotion. Check. *salutes and plops back down at desk with pencil in hand*

    Watched a bit more of Massive Blacks videos. The look into how the professionals work was well worth the cost. Seeing how they put into practice all the little details and whatnot... I'm still picking stuff up.

    Poses. I went back to 30 seconds because 15 seconds wasn't enabling me to sink fully into the flow. Too breakneck speed. I managed to hit the sweet spot again today though. I included a close up of the poses so that you guys could also see them clearly, I just can't get the entire page to look decent.
    There's also some PS stuff that turned out rather well, using much of what I learned from the vids. Also a bit of fanart. OH NOEZ. A good friend was ragging on me to do some fun stuff, and even though I said I wouldn't, I ended up doing something. *shakes fist*

    /nerd
    Now I know anime isn't to everyone's taste, and even NGE has a very split public opinion, I am a personally a fan of it. Usually I don't like doing fan art, because it feels like I'm running in place, not really getting anywhere, but I actually had a lot of fun doing this, so I'll probably work on it a bit more in the future.
    I was aiming for a bit of a taunting look.

    If that mech thing is from your imagination, you have some serious skill. I have trouble plopping my imagination down on the paper, do you feel the gestures have helped you do this?

    Neon Genesis Evangelion fan, eh? Do you have that German fan book? Lots of good model sheets in there.

    I like lockface. And it looks like 30 seconds is the sweeeeeet spot.
