    FREE BEER!!!! (Now i have your atention, leave a crit here:D...there's no free beer)

    Hi there!
    I´m new here. First of all, a brief introduction. My name is Leandro and i'm 18 years old. I've been studying illustration since march in a school around here and i'll be starting a carreer in graphic design next year (I was studying informatics but it wasn't interesting enough)

    So i have time till April to do a super intensive art training!!!

    So feel free to leave any critics and comments.

    Cheers

    Edit:I'm moving these to the next post for the sake of the thumbnail hehe

    Okay my friend welcome to CA.org
    I think you need to work two basic things, gesture and structure, right now mostly gesture, that will give life to your drawings

    Well, for today there are some loomis studies, some pages from my sketch book and an illustration.
    I also started gesture drawings(from posemaniacs.com), so tell me if i'm on the right track, ok?

    These are good but maybe cleaner line would be better for the poses. Sketchy is a bad habit some people get into. Other then that they are pretty good.

    I suggest to use long lines when planting the gesture, scratch fearless
    how about doing a line from the top of the head to the bottom of one feet, things like those
    keep it up

    Spiderlock33:Thanks for the advise. I tried to improved my lines a bit in these ones.
    andres333:Thanks! I'm working on it

    ----

    Here there are more loomis studies and 60 sec gestures(i tried to do more accurate lines in this ones)
    Tell me what you think
    See ya

    Edit: Sorry for the huge images. Or too small or too big. I'll try an intermediate size for tomorrow

    Poo-kie: thanks!

    Today i registered in live model classes, which it's starting on february!!
    I'm really excited about that, and i also bought some acrylics but can't do much with 2 colors and no paintbrush hehe. I'm practicing a bit of color theory with pencils though, i think i'll upload that tomorrow.

    Well for now... the same as always: Loomis and gestures

    I'm having some troubles with my internet connection at home. So for now, i won't post daily. When my internet comes back, i'll start to do it again.

    Since the refference of my gestures where from posemaniacs.com, i couldn't do them last week. Instead i focused on my other weaknesses.

    So i did some self portraits(pretty simillar to me but not actually identical, there is something i'm missing...), more loomis studies and color theory studies with coloured pencils(the next time with acrylics yay!)

    Some nice studies here man, you have a good understanding of line and form.

    I would say that the hand studies could do with more work though, and adding a little tone and shadowing would make them instantly more realistic.

    Keep it up.

    Update (31/12)

    Yowza: Thanks for the advice! I'm on it

    ----

    Good news! my internet is back so i'll start posting dialy again.
    I did some acrylics this time. The first and the second one are from imagination. And last one from reference.
    I screwed up the second one but we learn of our mistakes hehe
    Gestures are back too(need to do lots of them too).
    I'll upload more tomorrow.
    All critics are welcome
    Happy new year!

    Cheers

    Just some gestures for today(with a ballpoint pen this time). Spent all day watching my illustration teacher doing a demostration of a way to use acrylics, it was really useful.
    I also bought Claire Wendlings's artbook "Iguana Bay 2.0" today. It's so awesome, she is one of my favorite illustrators. Well that's for today. Tomorrow i'll post more stuff.

    I did some life drawing with some animals(the problem was that they just moved too much haha).There's also the usual studies. Cheers

    You're better at drawing and sketching than I was when I was your age, especially with regards to the shading.

    Everything is better with dinosaurs.

    Some of the figures feel a little stiff to me, but it's awesome that you're doing so many studies. Great job, and also nice portrait, I like the highlighting on the nose and lips.

    ParanoiaArtist: Thanks! You're right about the poses that's why i've been doing so many gestures. I hope they show results soon.


    ---

    Well i finished the painting that i had mentioned. I'm not happy with the results though(I will never use black in the lips...). I don't want to make corrections to this one too... so i'll take note of my mistakes and i'll try to not do them with tomorrow painting.Any more critics for this painting will be welcomed too.
    I was from reference from here:http://autumnraindrop.deviantart.com...-with-69222747
    I did the usual studies too.
    Cheers

    Well yesterday i went to the zoo and tried to draw the animals there. For the gestures i tried to do Vilppu's aproach to the subject. I did some anatomy from Loomis too. More coming tomorrow, Cheers!

    Trying to overload CA's servers eh?

    You've got a good volume of work here, keep going. One thing about the self portraits and anatomy studies. Drawing all the Loomis and Bridgeman isn't going to help if you don't understand why you're drawing it in the first place. Next time you do a self portrait, try starting with a skull. Try to place the eyes in the sockets, your eyebrows on the crests above your orbits, etc...

    Next time you sit down and do one, get the lighting to hit you so you can clearly see the planes of your face. See where a different value starts and ends, that should signify a plane change. There are quite a few around the eyes and mouth especially.

    Gamerhomie:Hey thanks for the advice!I've been trying to do that but it will take some time till i get it right.

    ---

    Today there is a portrait of my sister in acrylics(despite she doesn't look like my sister at all but since you don't know her hehe). Still trying to use the right amount of water and pigment. Did another self-portrait too, trying to do what Gamerhomie suggested. I also did some hands from life and some 30 seconds gestures.

    This week i've been busy with this painting so there wasn't much to post. I'll continue the usual amount of studies tomorrow. For now i'm posting a Takehiko Inoue's portrait(from ref obviously). First the original sketch with pencil and then the acrylics painting(By the way i learned a lot with this one).
