    Good goin' on the lifedrawing! Softer lines would be cool in certain areas

    Keep doing the studies! There are some issues in the underlying structure, but you'll get around to it if you keep doing Hogarth, Loomis and all those guys Bridgman is good for structure!

    Thanks man! Yea some of the lines are too hard, I'll think of that in my future life drawings.

    And you're right about the underlying structure. I think the books will do good.


    Now I'am home again. Home sweet home. Update tomorrow I think!

    Those little penciling details you are making are something great.You may end up in a style similar to peleng's small size line detailing.
    Thats the spirit, keep up

    Hey man, how ya doing? I like your anatomy studies, very interesting. Also, you stated that you feel like you haven't learned anything- that's not true. In some way or another you have learned something. I say try some gesture poses at posemaniacs. They really really help, bro! Also, if you're really intent on learning anatomy inside and out...this is gonna sound strange, but get your hands on some human bones. The muscles become a sinch if you know the human skeleton. REAL bones are very pricey, but there are anatomically correct replicas that'll do just as good. I'm ordering a pelvis! 8)

    Thanks for your replies everyone! I really appreciate it.

    I've been ill all day (like the fifth time this month, gah!) so no update today. I hope it's over soon, it's really hard to concentrate on the drawing. But I had a very useful conversation with Hurri yesterday and I'm more motivated than ever!

    Good night and thanks again lovely people!

    Hope you get well soon! The anatomy studies are bound to pay off! Bridgman is good stuff for masses Talks with Hurri about art tend to be useful Gonna be cool to see you apply it!

    love the bridgeman studies, youve got his style down!

    i think the when you draw clothing youre putting too much emphasis on the folds...of course, in real life there are a ton of folds in fabric, but the ones in your drawings tend to stand out a bit too much, and dont really feel like they are part of the fabric. have you done many fold studies to see how fabric falls? im certainly no expert. shoot now that i think about it i should go do some cloth studies myself!

    I'm not updating and still you're taking the time to comment. I appreciate it SO much!



    dCepT - Thank you for visiting my SB so often! I'm very grateful.

    pandawhipped - Thank you sir. You are totally right. My clothes really sucks, but I guess it's because I've never done any fold/fabric studies, hehe. I'll do that in the near future of course.

    Chupacabra
    - I've sent you a PM man!



    Unfortunately, I'm still ill. Turns out that I have gastric catarrh and a infection in my neck. So no update for a while I guess.

    Thanks again and take care!

    Hey mate. I feel so inspired when I'm looking at all the awesome sketchbooks so I can't stop my fingers from writing. Thank you for stopping by my (dead) sketchbook.

    Yes, I'll get you some stuff soon. But I can't promise that it'll be good, but decent at least.


    EDIT: Btw, now I've a folder with a lot of your drawings you've posted in your SB. You must feel honored!

    Great pencil work! I think your studies are coming along pretty damn fantastically. I think you may want to start throwing in more observational color work, it'll help to build it up as you move along with your structure stuff. Oils are a lot of fun if you have the bucks and patience.

    Thank you for stopping by man. I'm really glad you like my studies. I see what you're saying about color observation. I'll do that in the future for sure.

    Hi spaggen,

    how are you? I´ve visited the live streaming class of vandruff this weekend and found it so awesome and thaught I should tell you. He talked a lot about bridgeman and rubins and how to get the most out of it. As you´re studying bridgeman I can only recommend it to you. The class is available via on demand. But see yourself, just wanted to tell you...

    cheers

    Hi Spaggen! Wow, just in four pages you have improved very much as I can tell. I really like your imagination, some neat characters coming from that. I have a hard time coming up with concepts from memory myself but I need to do that too. Like the bridgeman studies. I'm also doing lots of Bridgeman and Hogarth. I'm starting to draw from life too. I've drawn most of my life on and off. A year ago I really started drawing seriously again. I get distracted and then come back to drawing. But now I am giving it extra effort to keep drawing everyday. I suggest to you to bring a small sketchbook wherever you go and draw from life all the time. I'm definitely guilty of not doing that too but now I'm keeping an extra sketchbook in my backpack.

    Does pose maniacs help you quite a bit? It sure does. I am going to start doing some quick poses from pose maniacs. I really like that fat monster with the really long tongue. I'll stop by here more often to see your progress because it seems you have an eye for drawing. Pce.

    blexano - Thank you. Here you've some stuff.

    alexson - Thank you very much!

    android411 - Hey man. I feel good right now. Thank you for stopping by and telling me that. I'll definitely check it out.

    arestocrat -
    Thanks. Really appreciate it.

    danlucas -
    Wow, thanks for the great post man, and the compliments of course. Yea, the imagination drawing and the concept stuff can be tricky sometimes. I had some big problems with that before but I've been forcing myself to not use references (the illustrations from the books for example), and I think it works pretty fine right now.

    I've also drawn most of my life but started seriously some months ago. Good suggestion, but I've my A4 sketchbook in my backpack and it works fine actually. But I'll definitely try to get a small one if I'm going on a trip or something.

    Yes, Posemaniacs is really good for learning to observe and to record the seen stuff quickly.




    I'm finally back with some updates. But my scanner have been acting really fucked up lately so the quality is quite bad unfortunately. Well, just some imagination drawings (most of them). I think I overdo the shadows most of the time. I'll think about light vs shadow in the future.

    looks good, gonna look great in a few years if you keep going =).

    when you render form, try to start with just defining dark and light, maybe draw a thin line where the core shadow would be around the object and make a smooth flat dark to make it pop, edges can come later. also you might want to make your shadows as smooth as possible, not taking any attention, it takes some exercise but it might be well worth it.

    have fun.

    hi man. Great new concepts. I particularly like that fish and the last one. You're really doing an awesome job with your character progress. I need to do some more stuff today. I'm probably going to practice more anatomy and bridgeman. I found out that it is so hard to draw when i'm really tired. I need that sleep to draw and focus. It takes a lot of focus to draw, but it takes me off to a new world.

    oh yea I think an A4 sketchbook would work great. I have 2 sketchbooks im working in right now. One is for sketching from life, and taking with me wherever i go. The other I do anatomy studies.

    Definitely good imagination drawings in here, as well as good studies from life. I really like the thing with the low-hung mouth and huge tongue haha. Keep up the awesome work, you seem to be on a great path to achieving your dream

    hey spaggen,

    great you´re feeling better. Tnx for commenting on my last updates bro...
    I think there are many great sketches in your last update. You have the woman kind of creature with the superbly rendered folds, you have a wonderful dynamic pose which is the kickboxer or futball player (though the left leg seems a bit less foreshortened - sorry for my english) so your anatomy studies are paying off right now IMO, keep updating, your on a very good way...

    cheers for now, I´ll check back for sure
