    Update:Hey everyone, I'm still alive Our interenet provider has been giving us the run around, we havent had proper internet for about 3 weeks now, really sucks that I can't update, took me 30 minutes just to get this far, they said they would send someone over to fix it, but it's been 2 weeks already....... thanks for all the support guys, hope these jerks can have our net fixed before christmas....... I've still been drawing, but only a few studies, it's hard to get motivated when you don't have internet

    Go shop some nice inspirational books! It's always good to have when you're traveling for instance..or when your internet is down.. xp find some artbooks from your favorite artists?

    And little tip..when you draw, focus. If you know you can do better, do it. : ) continue till it's what you had imagined from the start. Like a goal.. don't know if it makes sense?

    I did the same exercise as you did in post #221, some years ago. It's really rewarding, I still remember some of the tips he gave..: p

    looking forward to the huge update!

    interresting studies, I think you can improve a lot by studying human figure in motion ( by using as refs : comics, sports photos ,...)
    keep on drawing!

    Welcome back....good work tempo. I would definitely do more slow and less fast amigo. Give yourself a few hours to throw down some good stuff and really get into it. I do like the speed ability to catch the structure though....good on ya'

    Hey, as for your figures, try to make an axis for each major body part first it will help you to catch the gesture and proportions even before you start to draw any shapes, keep up your studies.

    Just a quick one for today, I think the posemaniacs is working although, with that being said, the anatomy is still a little weird, nothing I can't fix in future

    Truly you need to start to think of what you draw as a three dimensional object, those people saying "Draw boexes" are not kidding
    My suggestion is to leave the tablet for awhile; grab a pen. Yes not a pencil, draw with pens. This will force you to think before you lay down every line, as whichever can be erased our brain sees as wrong.
    The enxt major important thing is, get an easel and draw on large formats, this will get you out of this little stuff. Remmember from general to detail, that is for example Form, Gesture down to what type of hair this gal standing in front of you has got
    , get the point? Hope i helped.

    Cheers, ICE

    Your getting pretty good with faces and digital rendering. I love the way you do your lips and I think your character designs are fun and fresh. You work so hard!

    One thing you might want to try is not positioning all your faces forward. It can make for a much more interesting piece if you mix up the position and the heads placement in the frame. There's some stuff about it in the Illusion of life, but you could just look up the 12 laws of animation. It's good advice for illustration.

    keep posting! Keep fighting! Rah rah rah!!!

    Icecold: Thanks for the tips and wisdom and most of all honesty, I'll consider what you said, I don't have room for an easel but i'll go out and buy an A3 pad and start working in that. thanks again mate, much appreciated.

    MoKhi: Thanks, good tip, I just dont know how to draw faces on different angles, only been drawing for 4 months, it's all so new to me, guess it's time to study them thanks again for the help ^^

    Was too hot in my room to work, so I didn't do much today, will make up for it tomorrow though

    Yuppers... you need to block out the figures amigo. I do not see improvement with the quick poses. I think a while back someone showed you an example of blocking.

    Also....(repeating) give more love and less quickies (that's what she said!! )

    Thanks guys, good to hear from you all, I'll respond individually and visit your sketchbooks tomorrow

    Edit: might just stick to posemaniacs until I can draw more dynamic figures and give the impression of the figure being 3D as ice-cold has been telling me to do.

    I highly recommend drawing/painting still life's. It's an ideal exercise to practise composition, color, values and basic forms, cheers.
