I would highly highly recommend doing what I did a few weeks ago. For 7 days don't let yourself draw anything from online or photograph sources - ONLY from life. This forces you to draw quite everyday objects and really gets you learning those values from life.
It helped me loooads and I switched in a week from drawing mostly from photo to drawing almost entirely from life for good.
Hope that helps!
Ramin- Oh thank you friend, that warms my heart. should talk on msn some day?
Deadly- Hey i saw that, loved those trees m8! would like to see more traditional from you. You should never stop doing them even though u like digital. thanks bro. Glad u always keep in touch, its fun to follow ur journey u know.
Naidy- yea long time Im glad u see that. thanks! I will do that dear friend. take care and thanks for checking in.
Nude model quickies from real life, first three is coal, the other two is pastel. Made like 35 of these but I dont have time to upload all haha. Now its time to draw hands again, see ya later ppl.
hi there, nice figure studies, the last pieces are getting much better. just try to keep the highlights in the right point, trying to not use too much bright colors. Take a look at the ambient around (ot imagine it if the image is from mind) and set the maximum light focus and where it is coming from. Normally the more bright zones are under this maximum point.
keep working good
Thomas- sorry missed ur comment, think u did that comment while I was uploading haha. That is actually a very good idea. You know what, in a few weeks we will have three weeks off from school to practice on drawing something we really want to be better at, maybe I can draw real life things all those three weeks. I will try to draw more from life overall too, great tip. But sometimes u wanna draw ppl and such and u dont have a model around all the time. take care
Ricardo- thank you. great tips! glad u stoped by, will have to take a look at what ur up to. cheers
Yesterday I did around 6 hours of hand studies, mostly from Hogarth book about hands but I also drew my friends hands. Though that was insanely hard, will need to do it alot more!
the last three is from life the other is from Hogarth.
Now Im off to school to draw even more hands
Amazing update!! Love the hand studies! hudge improvement mate, love the second hand in your latest update!! eager to see more
Yay you're going more bolder with the shading! And nice contour on the hands bro! You got this ^^.
Rebecka- thank u very much dear friend!
Deadly- thanks, oh Im glad u see that.
Thomas- thank u! easiest? u kidding me right?
Fantasy- Im glad u think so, thanks.
Thank you all for supporting me, I really wanna draw more when u are around pushing me in the right direction. thanks
allright inbetween all hands I am doing a portrait of a famous character from a tv show, anyone see who it is? It is not nearly finished, worked on it for 40 min right now. Need to start layng down some serious shadows
the mouth is hard, think it has some problems but I dont know what. ?
some hands from yesterday, will put up some more later but im off to the gym. These hands are my own. I sat and drew my left hand while I drew with the right haha.
Great update, looks really nice! It's a good practise to look at your own hand
i like these hand poses ... try to works on your legs also , maybe draw other body parts in mirror .
Go darker darker darker!
I SAID GO DARKER DAMN YOU
But nice line quality. That's something I blow at ;P.
Rebecka- thanks, yea It was good fun too.
Ramin- thanks, I will try, but I had an assignment for school to choose one thing to do and that was hands. But last day was today so now I will draw other things too
Deadly- thanks. And m8 I got something for u! will probably put it up tomorrow.
Well no pics today, my memory card for the camera has magically disappeared, but Ill try solve it until tomorrow Has some more hands to show u that I drew off my friend and one piece that was my last, two hands holding each other that I worked on for about 8 hours, so stay tuned.
Bethany- thanks, I did alot of hands haha. It was work for school and we had to choose something and mine was hands. But now that its over Ill try to take another body part, thinking its good to use alot of time only drawing a single thing. Really learned alot about hands those weeks. so thx for the tip and Im thinking arms now or feet.
this is the last pics of hands I did last week, they are drawn from my friends hand, really fast poses so it was hard. My last hand work for that session hasnt been captured on photo yet but I will get that tomorrow to show u. I hope u will like it cause I worked on it alot, so hold your horses.
that one with more shadows, next last, was my own hand, know it looks horrbile but dude was it hard to draw from that perspective.
well tomorrow ull get a major croquie post and the hands that I worked on for almost 2 days so I hope ur excited
keep it up ppl
Silwynar- thanks take care and come back soon
Allright so this was my last work for the hand weeks I had, they have around 8 hours of work behind it, I have used mostly mech pens and it is drawn on an a3 160g paper. It started out as a woman and a man but as I went the womans hand looked more and more manly so I guess it is 2 mens hands now. thinking this is kind of fun cause its not that traditionally as a picture. One hand has some problems I know but overall Im happy with the result. Hope u like it.
Nice mix of work in here, I enjoyed looking through your sketchbook
I love your last update! As BethanyK said, nice job defining all of the creases in the skin ^_^ It makes it look really realistic...Anyway, keep up the good work!
Damn...nice hands. You musta spent a loong time on that..........and I'm glad you went darker. Looks awesome. Can't critique that .
Hey Anton thanks so much for you comment in my sketchbook. It's taken me a while to look through yours as you've done so much in such a short time. I've really enjoyed looking at your progress and it's great to see that hard work paying off. I have no crits just keep going because you are doing great.
impressive are piece ... if look at this you cant recognize its a drawing or a photo .
great hand studies man. You are definitely making huge improvements and things like life studies like this are really boosting that.
No crits fom me, you seem to be doing all the right things.
well... maybe just one. You could try introducing a few more broken lines into your hand studies if possible. This would give them more depth and form. Complete outlines generally flatten out when viewed, so try and avoid a continuous line around the outside of any drawing. Particularly as these "outlines" don't exist in the real world, and are constructed entirely for the purpose of representing something in a drawing.
Anyway, its looking great so keep it up!
the two pages i haven't visit it recently, those pages are really have a creative study
hands study the most interesting one, do more and more practicing to be in
the right line of art study
keep it up
i found the great artists creat their artwork from contextualing from other artists.
wierd isn't it.

Ramin- thank u, that was the best comment ever made me so happy. u allright Ramin btw long time since we talked?
Thomas- Woa thanks U are absolutely right, glad u can give me critique and tips. Even though I know some of these things I always need to be reminded. cheers
Gogo- long time since u were here, welcome back I tried to work hard haha. thanks.
Velocity- glad u like it
alright heres a little selection of pics from last weeks croquie, life model with very short poses! they are done with ink, charcoal or with a red crayon lid. Did a huge amount of these this saturday too but the sun hasnt come up so I cant get any decent pics just yet. Just wanna thank u all for posting here, make me wanna draw more and show u guys, really helping me!
forgot this, think i showed u the legs before. But, yesterday I switched them upside down, now its a glass full of women's legs haha. I know im fucked up this is a long time project so hope u like the progress.
I know the perspective on the tables are not great, but that dont matter cause this is not a study this is a try at art. All of the things in this pic are from imagination so far. I have used oils and charcoal.
Have a great day!!
strange studies man , a bit confusing for me , i think i dont know about this style and that's why i have got confused .
Hey you!! That last hand study of yours is awesome!! Very nice updates!!
