    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.

    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 .

    Assassin's Creed 2 was much fun!

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

    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!

    Thanks, imaginary~ ^^ I have plans to do that when I'm more free~ Also, might see if I can borrow askeleton model from the Bone research department. HMMM.

    Current wip.

    She's not stepping out of water... more like... materialising out of some weird plane.

    There's some nice stuff here.
    I really like the more stylised drawings they have personality.

    Hey Ilmenhin, I was very impressed with how you can create such stylish characters from imagination and the anatomy studies you've been doing showcase some good understanding of anatomy.
    One of my favourite pieces was the simple sketch of the walking girl with the leg studies on the side just because you captured some great realism with the image and managed to maintain your anime style as well. I also liked the reference sketch of the girl lying on her back for similar reasons.
    Your speed paintings are very good and I think you might be a little too critical on yourself, but I understand the desire for artwork to be up to your own standards. Just keep up the practice and I look forward to seeing some more work.

    the random stuff in post #37 looks great and s do the studies

    that WIP looks FANTASTIC though her neck could be a little longer and maybe you could try rotating the canvas by 30 degrees so she doesn't look like she's coming out of water so much.

    Maybe you should work a little more on the faces, besides that I really like the way you embed the gesture in every drawing. keep it up
