moving.pictures' studies (long time no see, going at it again!!)
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,

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
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
