    Hey guys, I haven't stopped drawing in this one month's absence. I just didn't feel adequate posting here until I have had something substantial but it didn't happen anyway! I've moved recently as well and got really busy, as well as falling sick (and still kind of sick now). I've acquired moleskine sketchbooks and have been drawing on them on the way to work (20 minute train rides) but am still too afraid to draw people because they'd notice me drawing them. x_x

    jatherip - thank you; the shaun of the dead piece is on a backburner for now. ^^

    LMK - I'd love to do more enviroments! I keep making up characters as I draw but all discarded after being drawn once.

    towy- thank you.

    I've not been too serious in drawing, so here are all my sketchies:

    This is one of my original characters, Julien:

    And another:

    Some moleskine scans of random sketches done on trains.

    And one more of Julien, but not done on a train (wip):

    Cool. Opencanvas seems to be a better friend of yours than he is to me. These last couple of posts have so much improvement in them, they seem like a different artist. Same style but the proportions are sooo much more realistic, which tends to be a difficult thing in Anime. Great stuff.

    Yikes, thanks for pointing that out, miycko! Her name is definitely not Julien! XD

    TheHut - nonsense! I've glanced at your SB and I think Opencanvas likes you too! I'll have a better look when I'm not... uh. At work.

    I went back to lifedrawing after 1 month of absence to attempt Nanowrimo. I got up to 8000 words, moved house, fell sick, and never really felt like writing until the last week. At lifedrawing, I felt like crap drawing on expensive moleskine pages! That'll teach me to put more effort into drawing! XO

    Last 2 pieces done in ink- not too happy. You can tell I was trying to save the paper for better work by squishing in all the lifedrawing sketches.

    And here are more doodle crap since I've got my moleskine and have been drawing on the train to work whenever possible.

    I think I know what my problem is- I don't have a method of doing CGs, so each time I attempt a CG, I do it differently, which is good for experimenting but it means I won't be able to get better at any one particular method. Let me know if this is just me; I'm also interested in knowing YOUR process.

    The Julien piece on the last page is awesome! Finish it!
    Page 6 of the life drawings is the strongest, anatomy-wise. But why do you do life drawing on tiny moleskins? Go A2 or bigger for that, drawing big is the best way to learn.

    Your most recent life drawings are getting a lot better. The first ones you posted had a sense that you were sometimes drawing what you thought should be there, rather than the curves and lines that actually were. These ones feel much more real.

    Keep working at it and keep posting! You have really beautiful work here and I can't wait to see more.

    Really nice and steady improvement, do you combine the life drawing with anatomy studies? I think you'll benefit from it greatly. And if you haven't done so already try getting a hold of Andrew Loomis books... you could probably find links to download them if you search the forums a bit, you won't find a better source of knowledge than those books. =D

    ZhouPeng- It will be interesting to see how we each progress from these similar styles. ^^ I think you have the stronger advantage! Hehe.

    MoKhi- thank you; you are rather kind.

    Imaginary- I'm not sure what you mean by combining life drawing with anatomy studies- doesn't lifedrawing improve the understanding of the human anatomy as well? I did get my hand on one of the books but I should go back to referring to it. ^^ I keep forgetting about the basic stuff; always jumping into the deep end without proper preparations. -_-; Thanks for stopping by my SB.

    Since moving, I've had some time on the train to do some drawings. Unfortunately, Sydney trains make it hard for me to actually pick a passenger at random to draw- unless I really want to draw the back of people's heads. Most of my stuff are based on my imagination.

    Random.

    Attachment 874666

    Some tracker... drawn on train.

    Attachment 874665

    Another example of random? I'm aware that the girl's eyes are too closed together... you know what they say about people whose eyes are like that .

    Attachment 874654

    Assassin's Creed 2 was much fun!

    Original character, Death- who dislikes war and unnecessary loss of lives.

    Attachment 874663

    I bought a penbrush recently to have fun with- I think perhaps I need to go study some Chinese paintings...

    Attachment 874651

    And here are some studies I did before Christmas last year but then went out of the country. Drawing my first male model! It was awkward for me to draw the penis, so I didn't... sorry?

    Well, what i meant was that it's pretty good learning the underlying stuff. What you learn from life drawing is shapes basically (someone correct me if im wrong...), do you know why an arm looks like it does for example? How the muscles wrap around and attach to the skeleton etc? Since you have an anatomy book id definitely suggest you study it closely to gain a deeper understanding. =)

    Keep it up!
