    I thought the Nibru thread was really cool so I made my own version, I thought I'd upload it here as well in case someone wants to give me some crits. I haven't really done a lot of characters, and none since I started studying the figure so it was really fun, even though the end result is pretty weak.

    You're moving very fast! Keep it up. Watch out for drawing with Bic pens or anything similar. I tried that for awhile and my hand still hurts a year later. Try and develop some portraits.

    Lakka: Thanks!

    TASmith: I wonder how much of the perceived improvement that is actually just me being more confident though. I've learned stuff about the figure but the big thing is that I dare to push myself now, something I didn't do before.

    Dy.laneA: Sorry. I'm not following the schedule I made right now, I think I should start pushing more towards where I want to be. I basically haven't done anything imaginary at all up until this point, but imaginary stuff is what I want to be doing. I want to become a good figure draftsman, and studying figures is obviously excellent for that purpose, but i think I could learn as much or maybe more by doing imaginary characters as well. An imaginary character becomes a problem to solve, I don't know enough anatomy to make a convincing figure from my imagination, but I think I will learn a lot from doing characters and referencing photos and books to get them right, no? The problem is that I am still so slow, so I probably won't manage more than one character in a day. Also, go ahead and put a link in your signature, that sounds great, I'll put a link to you in mine.

    Anyway, today I did do some studies.

    Yeah I know it looks sort of bland, I did it in greyscale and it had a lot more contrast but I didn't like the way it looked so I just went nuts with the blending modes. Could've gone back in with some white afterwards.


    EDIT: I will be out of town again for a while, so no updates for a few days.

    It's really hard to push your self but just keep doing it. It really starts to get easier and easier to push your self more as time goes on. Well for me it was. I remeber a few years ago it was extremly hard to even push my self to draw an hour a day and I barly drew. Now it's hard for me to not draw at least 3 hours a day. Mainly becuase I feel bad about my self if I don't and I enjoy it to much.

    Bobby Chiu's podcasts really really helped me motivate myself. I would check them out on youtube if nothing else. Lately he has been interviewing all these amazeing artists on a live stream.


    Keep going

    Thanks for the support guys. I'm back in the studio now, feels good to be drawing again after a two week absence. I am going to start participating in the Environment and Character of the week activities here on the board, starting this week. Should be fun.

    Meanwhile some studies I did today

    Did you notice the sword blends in with the cloak? It almost looks like drapery because that line on the cloak starts just where the sword ends. Otherwise looking great!

    Taneli: Thanks man, I'm waiting for time to pass myself so I can start kicking some ass. 8)


    Didn't get much done today, spent most of the day working on my car which I need to take me to and from the studio, I'd much rather be drawing than fiddling with oil filters and drive belts but wth, I'll get to draw tomorrow.

    Hey, your Nibru was really cool! Plenty of attitude in that dude.

    Your Dracula looks quite intimidating! His outfit is well designed, the overall mood of the character definitely fits Dracula. Nice touch with the wolves/dogs!

    Cool stuff in here, keep up the good work. Watch out though, the torso on that guy in your last post looks a little small, that or his legs are too big. Keep on rocking, you've improved a lot.

    I've completely lost my way. I can't concentrate or focus, I have no energy, I almost fall asleep sometimes when I try to work and even if I'm alert I can't figure out what to do... But if I go do something else I can't concentrate on that either because I feel like shit for not drawing when I know I should be. I have moved in to the studio pretty much full time to force myself to work, but (unfortunately) I've also moved all of my instruments over there which compete for my attention. Maybe it isn't all bad though, doing something creative even if it's not drawing feels better than just sitting around after all..

    I'm not sure it was a good idea to move to the studio. Wouldn't have a positivie effect on me. I'd love to have a studio separate from where I live. I'd see it as a place for art only. Sometimes it's hard to really concentrate on drawing in a place where I do everything else too.

    Edit: I'm going through something of a rut myself. I had some pains in my hand and arm and had a week of rest. It's hard to come back from a long break but I'm working on it, doing some hours every day. I'm sure I'm back on my usual schedule in a week. Do you see yourself doing anything else than art? Put some big stickers on those instruments and write on them something like "DO NOT TOUCH ME UNTIL 19:00". Likewise, if you'd rather be a musician, don't waste your time drawing. Excercising gives you energy. 30 min - 1 hour of walking or jogging 3-5 times a week is working wonders for me. I need it especially now when it's so depressingly wet, grey and dark outside.

    Taneli: Nah man, I dunno, music is more like my mistress... I love art, I want to be an artist. I can't picture myself doing anything else anymore, it's painfully clear to me that it's art or nothing at all which makes it all the more confusing to me that I find it so difficult to keep working hard. I feel so guilty that I literally have nightmares when I don't think I'm working hard enough, but I still can't make that will into energy that keeps me working all the time. I can't get my head around it.

    fenixx: Thanks. I'm still behind on my traditional stuff though as you can see here.

    Nice sketchbook. The gentleman in black you made a while back is wonderfully drawn, but the placement of his dogs, particularly the one on the far left, seem a little off to me. Their footing looks a little weird.

    The more recent piece, the one of the man in armor, is interesting. His right hand seems a little muddled, not particularly well defined, and his sword seems blunt, almost soft at the tip. It also seems curious to me that his hair and the cloth on the hilt of his sword are flowing in the wind, but his necklace is not. Maybe this is just a particularly heavy necklace, though.

    The amount of work you do is nothing short of astounding. The sheer quantity of figure sketches and studies... The word "Inspiring" is tossed about a lot, but there is no other word to describe it. Keep drawing.
