    This is supposed to be Parsakoira, from the draw what everyone looks like thread.
    Its actually so dissimilar from the photograph, that I'm going to do another one.

    I've been hitting posemaniacs 30 second drawing tool, at least three times a day. I upped the time limit to 45 seconds, because the extra fifteen seconds allows me to twitch, scratch and sip coffee. I wasnt sure how much these were helping until tonight when I sketched an idea for the current DSG. I dont think Ive ever drawn a pose from my imagination as well as this before, and while its not perfect its groundbreaking for me.

    here are some of the 45 second sketches:






    and this is the sketch from my imagination:

    Great figures, keep drawing them. They are the key to get at the top level. They are the only ones that can set our pen free, so we must all keep drawing the neverending 1000000 figures.

    great SB man, I LOVE drawing and I love the character you put into your drawings and sketches. Also the interconnected eyes caught my attention! That one is trippy. Anyways keep up the good work.

    Thanks Dan. I liked the eyes better when I posted them, but now I think it looks gaudy and the perspective is all wrong. I might redevelop the idea, I call it 'The Oracle' and imagine it as a huge biological computer with clairvoyancy.

    Not much time to practise today, deadlines are looming.

    Is the first one in post #66 ExiledRed junior? And I'm really liking those quick ones, they're a lot better than I do on quick things.

    Yes, thats my son, although again, the likeness is poor. Its not as creepy as my last attempt (previous page) though. We go out to the donut shop every weekend and spend a couple of hours there drawing stuff. I'm determined ro ensure he gets the basics at an early age.

    The second picture in that post is of the rest of my family.

    I love the smell of burning deadlines in the morning.

    This is all I got today, I cant justify sitting at my desk doing posemaniacs while I have to layout proposals that really need to be submitted.

    Any minute now, someone's going to come in here and tell me to stop drawing photographs from magazines, and it would be a valid comment. I think if my sketches actually looked like the subjects it would be fair enough, but I'm really trying to achieve likenesses and am just exasperated that I can catch the shapes, gestures and expressions, but somehow the faces just dont match up.



    I just downloaded the loomis books, maybe they'll help.

    thanks man, I wish I could create an image like that from imagination, but sadly its a photo ref.

    I try to use photos that offer some kind of challenge, in this case it was the position of the ladies head, the shared pose and the child. Im trying to move away from photos though as I tend to measure out the contour and work inwards, and Im told this is doing it wrong.

    You need to understand basic anatomy like the back of your hand first. Then you can move forward to contour studies. It's funny how sooo many figure drawing teachers get it wrong. For some reason they want to start with blind contour drawings when that is an intermediate skill. It's pretty important but not as necessary as the proper understanding of the anatomy that makes the contour. Their are many abstract dynamics that are over looked as well.

    One problem I see allot of is your copying the ref without understanding it. For example you need to research the facial muscles and how facial expression change dynamics. Some muscles squash, forcing others to stretch.

    Thanks Raoul, I'm feeling what you're saying for sure.
    I think I started the technique after reading a library book that encouraged me to 'draw an envelope' around the subject and to triangulate reference points while slowly chipping at the envelope to develop the correct outline. It seemed to make sense, and my drawing improved exponentially, but I have noticed its not helping me achieve realistic poses from imagination and that because I'm essentially recreating a 2D image a lot of the sketches look flat, or just 'wrong'

    Thanks for the advice

    On to Loomis, in a bid to move from 2d thinking to 3d thinking.

    Ooh, those studies look nice! And I really like that comic so far too, you've already gotten better than when you first started the sketchbook!

    Thanks Mitze, I've been admiring your work for over two years, so that means a lot.

    GogoJoJo, thanks for noticing the improvement. I actually started this sketchbook two years ago, but abandoned the venture while I went off and learned php and actionscript and other left brained stuff, so most of the stuff on page 1 is from a while ago.

    Lately though I've been trying to get these mannequins down, and in between thumbnails and during smokebreaks I'll try and jot a couple down.

    One of the things that isnt obvious from this sketchbook, is how much working on my drawing is improving my work in graphics and web.

    I cant post much of the stuff I do, cause of NDA and also, its not all that relevant to concept art, but it is creative work.

    These thumbnails, for a few webpages to figure out the type of imagery we need, and also pre-planning for the photo shoot, have really benefitted from the posemaniacs 30 second tool, and also the loomis mannequins. The thumbnails are much more descriptive and confident than Im used to producing in a few seconds.

    Ok, so for the benefit of anybody who cares, I have stopped drawing, but only temporarily while I pour my creative energy into a couple of web projects, I'm working on. I'm disappointed to miss some of the recent DSG's but I dont get paid to do those.

    These sketches were done on coffee breaks, and finally put to rest the question of whether the Wig have tails or 4 legs.

    hope you'll have a lot of time to draw again soon, I really enjoy seeing your DSG stuff And when you do, don't forget to try and improve your line quality (it's a pain in the ass for me too )

    Aw jeez.

    I really cant stop to sketch, and even when I do get a moment, my mind is busy spinning about my work that I cant get in the mood.

    I was involved with two partners in a web development startup and we'd been building it for a year, but they decided to cut me out last week, in a fit of impulsive knobbery, leaving myself and my family in a very difficult position. Fortunately, most of the clients walked on them, and came back to me (they'd taken on the company specifically for my designs), convincing me to go it alone and start up a new firm. Already in its first week, my new company has surpassed the old one in sales for the whole of last year, and is getting more and more interest.
    Funny how the world turns.

    Anyway, as I'm no longer bound by secrecy, control my own work, and have awesome clients who I dearly love. I can start putting some of my design stuff in here too.

    Here are some screenshots relating to the thumbnails a few posts higher.
