    Mendics' Sketchpad

    I recently got inspired by how much people improve here, seeing that improvement, made me realize i had to work on a lot more than i usually have.. i have been progressing a lot slower these past years and i believe that i have to put on a lot more effort if i ever want to draw the stuff i always admired. So as starters i made this sketchpad.

    I'm mendics (that of course is a forum name), I live in the Philippines and I've been drawing since i was in prep, I'm currently an architect student here, 19 yrs old. i draw a lot of anime in my years, so my style might show up even if i dont it to. I dont really regret doing anime as it "IS" what motivated me when i was a kid. I've also realized that drawing anime alone wont make me improve so i plan to draw a lot more from life and from different styles.

    anyways here's my first work to post here.. A wip at the moment.. Copied it at a photo.. trying to practice real life art..

    here's one i made just right now.. a master work from some artist... (dunno ehehe)
    compared to the original, man theres a lot of difference but as they say it not in the copying, its in the learning you get from it. Its a WIP by the way... ahaha

    hmmm... maybe im doing it all wrong.. the process i mean.. i draw the sketch of it then block in colors in one part then finalize the render .. then block some more parts, render it then move on to another.. maybe i should sketch, block all colors, then finalize the render.. not piece by piece..

    you guys might have seen this already but i might as well post it here..

    -did a little bit of pose mania and anatomy study a while ago.. 5-10 mins a piece.. i wasn't really hurrying to finish the drawing, i was studying where and how the muscles were connected.

    i just noticed... my colors ARE dull... kinda mushy.. i guess i blend it too much.
    another fanart. trying to be a little neater, looks more anime-ish this time.
    still having problems with the lighting...

    Check the values on your pieces. Turn it into a gray scale image and see
    if the darks and lights (values) are what you want them to be.

    Your last WIP with the steps remind me of childhood. Awesome.
    Keep those visions coming.
