    Here's a little video. Worth Fighting For, Judas Priest. I feel it kinda relates to what we're trying to accomplish here, after all, aren't some things worth fighting for?

    (BTW, how do I embed stuff here?)

    Hey dudes, sent out an email. Still building the schedule action for the streams! I'm just having trouble setting things up and doin freelance then sleepin. Sleep is strugglin so I don't know if I'll be able to make it tomorrow. I'm going to try and get up... in 2 hours but I don't think thats happenin. Theres gonna be more than one morning study stream soon though so you wont have to be alone if I can't make it for whatever reason. But I think once we got a solid routine goin it shouldn't be so bad to maintain. The Crimson Daggers are the fuckin best though... Can't believe it! But I see it and its awesome! Can't wait til this is just an unstoppable force of nature destroying all laziness D:

    I really feel sorry for you, Dave. Having troubles to fall asleep is something I suffer to from time to time. Especially when I worked until going to bed or when I'm thinking about projects or characters. I hope you're going better soon.

    But how do you manage to get up after sleeping not long enough? I always tend to sleep to much when I'm in trouble falling asleep. O.O

    As announced I tried doing a still-life from imagination. I totally fucked up. I call this "Sinking Ship" >XD

    If anyone can see what my main problem is: please tell me. I am not able to analyze it.

    The main problem is that you are drawing still life from imagination. Nothing else.

    For me still lifes doesnt end in themselves. I don't do still lifes to do fine art. From painting still lifes I hope to get a better feeling for realistic colours and shapes. It should be possible to draw an orange-glowing star, a beige cup and a small bamboo on a blue drapery... from imagination, if you really learned something from your still life paintings. Because otherwise I have to ask myself: why exercising still lifes? To be able to copy references? Is this really everything I can learn from still lifes?

    then what you're doing is NOT a still life, don't get me wrong, its pretty good, but in order to get something from your imagination going you need your brain to be able to compare it to something real, hence why we study still life, so we can save refference material into our brains and be able to pull it out anytime we need it

    That's not what melfey's saying. She's saying that she does still lifes to retain information to refer to later when she is working from imagination.

    May be I missunderstand the meaning of your words. But practicing still lifes, only to save reference material in our brains (instead of how colours and lights act, how shapes are created, perspective) - then it would be even more stupid to do some still lifes from tea pots, fruits and things like that. Because I don't need those references for fantasy and scifi illustrations or art. I try to understand textures, forms and lights. Therefore I did this "still life from imagination" thing: to controll if I memorized what I learned about light, values, colours and so on. This is why a still-life from imagination - or from memory - makes absolutly sence to me.

    There I go putting my foot in my mouth. Maybe that's not quite what melfey's saying, but that's what I think they (still lifes) are for.

    melfey: "how colours and lights act, how shapes are created, perspective", etc. That is all reference. When you're doing stuff from your head what do you refer to? Things that you have observed and burned into your memory. So anything can be reference. Anyway, nice painting. Can't quite figure what's wrong with it. Maybe the lighting? That's what "non imagination" still lifes help you figure out. Maybe that's what Elnazareno was trying to say. Well that being said. I'd better go work on something to burn into my memory.

    Next time I do the head studies I'm going to flip the Loomis page so I'm not always studying 3/4 view head construction facing the left.

    Did some self portraits from life, because my values suck. These aren't good either but... ahhh moar. D:
    The light was just shitty today for a still life so I did these. =)

    continuing on my previous image. That's enough still life for now..

    Edit: I realized now after uploading that the orange is too light and needs more saturation. I need to learn to take breaks so I notice this stuff earlier!

    I got Rubins' "The Human Figure" in the mail today so I'm gonna be doing studies from that for a while. It presents the muscles and the way they interlock in a really clear way, breaking it down from the bone up. So far I like it a lot

    The next step would have been trying to attach the muscles to the skeleton frame from memory but I ran out of time D:. But thats my plan for pretty much every section in the book

    Man you guys are blowing up! So much great stuff to get even more stoked on. Trying to work on the Loomis frame/muscles, but I think I'm going to have to try that using lines to draw muscles thing. Thanks dado! Gonna go back and check Collywobbles post on that.

    Well here's what I've been working on. Think I'm going to move onto either a still life, or some "life" drawing (from photos) and incorporating the muscles. I'm going to attempt to get close to what Collywobbles and Dado were suggesting.

    Ok, I think I understand now what you are saying, I just think everything is important, and that if I can paint a teapot and an orange in a proper way, I will be able to paint a giant floating porcelain castle, as well as some bioengineered killer monster oranges from hell, I'm just saying that for me everything is important, (especially since I'm practically starting from 0 after a long time of not doing anything) but I completely respect your position on the matter.

    hey fellow daggers! So I spent most of the day Sunday traveling (had to drive to Reno to pick up a friend from the airport) but I printed out some of Darkly's mannequin sheets and I did a few ultra quick sketches in my sketchbook. they mostly suck, but it was practice. I got started on my still life last night, but ended up having to scrap it cause I had to move everything when I went to bed. Gonna start again tonight. It was good practice trying it out last night. I think I might just do the cloth, as a start. It's been about ten years since the last time I did still life and that was done in traditional media. Just trying to get into the groove as they say.

    Anyway, everyone is doing a fantastic job and I will be posting what I've got tonight! Hope you feel better soon, Dave!

    Im still so far behind on coloring it hurts, but nothing some crazy studies wont cure over time, at the very least, I think got the proportions right... seriously if it wasn't for all of you guys i think I might be sinking into oblivion, my most sincere thanks, any suggestion on where I could begin improving is more than welcome and accepted! and I'm getting a tablet asap!

    Yo Daggers, well I started a new still life - set up light etc, so I can paint it everyday - it's slow slow days with this, taking me forever - but with every colour choice I feel I am learning something.

    Took ppls advice and used 100% opacity at the moment - looks kinda shitty right now, but I hope it'll improve as I continue - it was so hard just starting argggh - gonna do life painting everyday, cos it's so freaking hard for me

    Please please any advice for a noob ^_^
