    my sketchbook ♦ hard work will pay off! ♦

    hey guys, I'm 19 years old and live in germany. I'm in my last year of school (12 years already, sheeesh) and don't have much freetime at the moment.
    If you have any questions, advices or critiques, feel free to post them! That's what I'm here for
    Thanks for looking and excuse my poor english

    Hi, your drawings look really nice! Did you use references?
    The 6th picture looks pretty different from the others (probably because you used markers) but something about the head bothers me. I think it's because of the lack of symmetry. Hope you don't mind me telling this! The first pencil drawing looks very good, and I like the last one, too. The way you shade is great.
    Keep it up!
    Und, was hast du vor nach der schule zu machen? Irgendwas im Kunstbereich?

    @iphigen : yeah, I used some reference. For the anatomy (bones & muscles) I used drawings from Andrew Loomis. I also referenced some parts of my portraits/ bodies, but the reference looks totally different. I mostly use reference to get anatomy/ proportion right and then I just imagine
    Of course I don't mind you telling me my mistakes, that's what I need to improve! And yeah, I think you're right. Maybe it's because I'm not so used to markers like I am with pencils or just worked half-assed on the anatomy, who knows.

    Nach der Schule werd ich wohl etwas in dem Bereich machen, ja. Hab jetzt schon Kunst als Leistungskurs (oder Neigungskurs oder wie das jetzt auch immer heit) und werde wohl was Richtung Kunst, Medien-, Kommunikationsdesign oder Kunst-Lehramt studieren. Vielleicht auch erstmal ne Ausbildung als Werbegrafiker, was sich so anbietet. Man wei ja nie

    @jatherip: I see your point thanks!
    I think that's one of my greatest problems. Still lack confidence in my lines from subjects I'm not good at
    Need more practice.

    some handstudies and a new portrait. On both images I tried to paint less with my wrist but to get more strokes out of my shoulder to get a more "arty" feel!
    It's hard :<

    I am really digging your figure studies so far. Your anatomy studies are definitely paying off, so keep going! Your hand studies are looking good, but something I noticed on a lot of them is that the fingers are almost in a straight line across when the intersect the palm. Look carefully at your hand and you'll notice that actually your pinky branches off from the palm of the hand a lot sooner than the ring finger, and so on. I hope that makes sense, haha. Keep going man, you show a lot of skill!

    @miycko: Thanks a lot, appreciate your comment

    @majortom: Thank you. And I realised what you said. Hands have always been one of my most-worst-case-scenarios. Will take your tips and study more.

    Something I drew during classes because it was so boring. Just needed some distraction to not fall asleep. So nothing "too arty" here. But worth a watch I hope

    very nice updates man i love that last graffiti image, something i've never been able to do, & that anime girl in the second post is real cute i think it would be a good idea to maybe start at 90 seconds with the pose maniacs, then work your way down from there

    @Miycko: Thanks. The graffiti image got a lot of praise in my school. So I was "forced" to make a t-shirt out of it. I will go to some printing-shops soon and get a price list and maybe I will sell some t-shirts the next month! Will post pictures of course if it happens
    Yeah, but I always try to draw fast first and then work my way down to the longer versions. I dunno, just a (bad?) habit of mine.
