Quest for drawing - Figure drawing... At least trying
First of all thanks to the staff and community for making this great site alive
I have been watching since a while and now I want to start my own sketchbook. I have always been scribbling but I'm serious about drawing since 2 mouths now. I'm quite busy because of work ( ) and other stuff but I draw whenever I have free time.
I will put all my drawings since I started to timestamp them (just need some days to scan these old stuffs).
I'm looking for critisms and feedback. Do not hesitate to point out my many weaknesses this is what I want to work on.
Maybe I will put a bit more about myself.
I'm 27 years old and my goal is to be concept/comic artist. I gave myself until end 2011 to reach it so well I have a lot of work to do! I would really appreciate any tips, crits even props sometime
I think I cannot accomplish this almost impossible task without YOUR help. I'm definitevely not gifted and started quite late so do not expect woaw fucking awesome progress from me. On top of that I'm generaly slow at learning things. But still I think I have the ability to draw and some determination.
Because I 'm working during the day I can only draw on my free time which is evenings and week end. Sometimes it's hard because I feel tired, had a bad day, etc... But well I noticed that the hardest is to start drawing, second hardest thing is to stop drawing to go to sleep
Instead of spending time writing this I should draw! draw! draw! so I will stop there and hopefuly see you soon.

Cool stuff, you've got this posemaniacs stuff down. Keep em coming, and make sure to turn the time limit down once you get comfortable with 90secs.

Oh forgot to say that I start each of my posemaniacs session with a couple of 30sec drawings. Usually I try to do ~10 x 30sec then ~10 x 90sec then a few 5-10min poses.

I really like the hands drawn in ink. The pose of the hands looks so convincing and realistic!

I like the render too What is suprising is that they are drawn from 3d virtual hands.
Here is more stuff. Though it would be better to put smaller pics (scrolling is boring...). Also I found out that my scanner program can apply a filter to "correct the picture". I applied it to the following scans, I don't know if that is recommended to use (change the picture a bit, make it look more like ink drawing).
Anyway. 30 July I did some life drawing near my place.

Whoa dude, I really like your pencil sketch so much that I added this thread to my watch list.
That little comic thing above can make a good comic!
I'm probably gonna learn from your style.
IMO, pencil sketches are just more intriguing and interesting than full-color paintings, though. Not sure why. I just feel really good looking at them compared to those full-color drawings / paintings / renderings.

Thank you Xeon I guess it is just a matter of taste, like why do I like ketchup more than mayonaise!
In my opinion mastering sketching (with pencil or pen or tablet or whatever can draw a line) is the first step. Somebody told me "If you make a good sketch and color it badly the result can still be good. But if you do a bad sketch, there is no way it looks good."
So I decided to stick with pencil until I'm satisfied. And I think there is a lot of things to learn with them
PS: For the comic, I'm working as computer engineer, this might explain that
