So here i am, folks
just a basic introduction, to get it over with
I'm 24 years, living in Vienna, currently in nurse school and trying my best to live life to the fullest
I've been in love with CG for a long time now (~6 years) but i've never got the balls to try it myself - well, i've tried my hands on 3dsmax a few years back but never got past amateurish stuff so i dropped it again, and then in the last 2 years or so i've really fallen in love with 2D (concept) art and since then i've been on and off this site making my way through all of the awesome sketchbooks and the finally finished section
and then it happened...as i was doodlin' around in class this spring it finally hit me: "aarrrgh, dude, you can't draw sh*t!! DO SOMETHING!!"
so, in the next days i've started my lifelong journey of learning the tools of the trade...been loving it ever since...so here we go, i'll divide my scans over the next few posts...come take a look, tell me what you think and most importantly give me honest feedback to help me make the most out of it!
thank you guys, see you around,
UPDATE: 05.07.2011 SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR NEW STUFF!!

so here we go, the next images cover the time between mid-april to end-of-june my humble beginnings if you will
it's not too much, i admit, it was kind of hard for me to keep it rolling
Excellent life drawings, but you might want to study color theory when you get the chance.

next images cover the summer holidays...because of my injury (broke my collar bone - gahhh, stupid dave ) i was basically at home all the time so these were really productive days
so then, here's the last batch covering stuff from mid-august until now
yeah, thanks dude but, i don't have a tablet yet, so it's all graphite for now hope to get a tablet at the end of the year so i'm trying to get the basics down to be able to dive right into colour theory
nice bill murray sketches and the portraits look awesome, primarily the second! would love to see more of them, so keep up the good work!
puh, kinda slow day today, wish i'd drawn more, dammit...anyways, small update, nothing fancy, just some facial expressions referenced with the help of a small mirror on my desk, let me tell you, it's wasn't easy drawing from a mirror, not used to that and all that frowning made my face hurt, haha
You have some really good things going on.. I'm especially fond of the 50's style lady and the portrait of the man right after that. I've noticed though that you tend to get a stiff look and there are some proportion problems. My advice that is when you start out on a portrait, don't move into the individual features for a while. Move around the whole portrait, find the relationships between things like the jaw bone and the cheekbones and as they become accurate they will tell you where the individual features are. Hope that helps!
just a few studies and the failed attempt at a portrait, tried to use the previous shading techniques for coloured paper but forgot to keep track of the proportions and now the eyes are waaaayyy to big, so damn it
here's my take for today's self-portrait day, love those old school aviator goggles so i had to put them in done in a couple of hours with pencils and charcoal on pastel paper
Good job man, very nice self-portrait .. I like your drawing style.
keep it up...
Nice work Moving pictures. I like your studies the most. Try to work on those more.
figured i need to really get the basics together to ever take a shot at the art department and put together a decent portfolio so for the next few weeks i'm gonna do mostly studies - beginning with the skull and moving on to the neck/shoulders over the next days my goal is to finish basic human anatomy in a month and then begin extensive figure drawing & character studies and i'll try to fit in a few personal works for fun as well, so bear with me
so here we go, last update for today, gonna continue the head studies tomorrow
woah, it's been two weeks already, sorry for the lack of updates...life's kinda got me on my balls right now, and not to mention my drowning in school assignments lately, and to make it all worse i'm now tired all the time and seem to lack the energy to do anything lately...puh, gotta figure this mess out well anyways, i still did a few studies in the last 2 weeks so i'm kinda proud that i was able to pull that off what with all the "other" things in the back of my head
so as you can see i continued to do my studies and the more i draw the more committed i get to see it all through, and to be honest i really had fun trying to recreate these detailed anatomic drawings
and yeah, i know, the most difficult part is not to let go of the big picture, the primary goal still is and should be understanding the human form and enabling me to draw better/correct anatomy, so as soon as i'm finished with the muscle studies i'm gonna tackle a few referenced/imaginative figure drawings...hope the studies will help me then
NEXT UP: MUSCLES OF THE HEAD/NECK AND TORSO
by the way, if you're interested, reference was taken from these books:
- joseph sheppard: anatomy - a complete guide for artists
- gottfried bammes: der nackte mensch
- gray's anatomy 20th edition
so here we go...
so here goes the follow-up, two rather crummy muscle studies, but you get the idea, more to come of course :-)
Very nice study, definitely going in the right direction,
If you have time, please look at my sketchbook and tell me what you think, Thanks
wow, it really has been too long! well, anyway, here's what i've been up to these past months, nothing too fancy, just trying to get back into the game. Here are some figure drawings (A4 size) i did last year, took me like 2 weeks each and strechted over 2-3 months till december.
From january to february i continued my anatomy studies:
For christmas i finally got a wacom tablet (i3) but it took me awhile to even get started drawing digitally...tried myself on a figure study in color, oh my what a hassle it was, took me like 30h to get to this stage, so much for a "quick" figure drawing
Then i tried myself on a simple colour study:
After some inactive weeks i did a few figure studies again and noticed how hard it was without the constant practice
Your studies anatomy are looking really good. Your definitely improving. Try to be careful with the relationships in your forms and be sure to double check you measurements. I like your second large figure study the best I think. Keep at those studies!
continued anatomy studies from april to may:
