    Silwynar's Art - The stuff of a Beginner!

    SKIP TO THE LAST PAGES. THIS IS PRETTY OLD STUFF!

    Hey everybody!

    My Name is Lukas Esch and I'm an aspiring Concept Artist and Illustrator from Germany.
    I have been drawing and painting since I can basically hold a pen, but I started taking it serious after I found out that there is no magic trick to a good painting.
    Afterwards, I began honing my skills over the past few years and this is where I am now!

    Good start.

    It's obvious which ones you used reference for; they stand heads above everything else quality-wise. Do more of those. It will help your non-reffed stuff get better.

    You are off to a good start, maybe I can give you a little help. First your lines are way to hard, like your eyes, lips, teeth and nose are one solid line all the way around. When drawing, look at how dark a line is and try to draw it the same. May I suggest that you get some cheap paper, like printing paper and just start playing with making different strokes, loosen up, focus on using your arm to draw, not just your fingers.

    Next I suggest that before you move to the body, get a good understanding of drawing the head. Start by drawing loosely and lightly, think of the head as a shape, focus on the large shapes first then the small shapes. To help with this think of an egg with the fat end up and the skinny end down as the whole head. Another example is the nose, it can be thought of as three balls placed together. I think you already know about the placement of the facial features.

    Just remember to draw lightly at first, you can go back and make the lines darker where you see fit. The egg also serves as a good light and shadow study, and when you move on to the body a good basic shape for the ribcage.

    Another reason for suggesting using printing paper is you won't care as much about making mistakes. When I drawed in a sketchbook I had this mindset that every picture had to be perfect, and that was hindering me because I would only draw when I felt I could do a good job. You should draw some basic shapes in 3D, think that instead of drawing a flat object, your pencil is going through a window and touching the object you are trying to draw.

    Just keep practicing, I hope this was helpful in someway.

    Here i am again!

    I've practised much and i think most the last face shape drawings helped me most!
    The face studies are from Burne Hogarth - Drawing the Head.
    Is this book good?
    Please tips, and comments!

    Enjoy and look again in here!
    Perhaps someday you will see somethin nice! oô

    Nice Greetings, Silwynar

    Good start so far! Watch out for the facial features when you draw heads - you tend to draw the nose too long/too close to the lips (as you pointed out yourself some time ago) and the eyes too far apart. The latest head studies from that book are looking good, they should help you get the features sorted. Also you may look into Bridgman's books, unfortunately I don't have a link to it though, but they are downloadable.
    You've got some nice shading styles!
    Nur weiter so

    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    That’s a good start.
    Make sure to practice daily if possible. Do many studies from life, figure drawings, master studies.
    Draw from photo reference if you don’t have a live model, whatever it is, it will help.
    Pay more attention to the proportions. When you start drawing you can first scribble the face loosely, then keep fixing the proportions till it looks right.
    Practice had and it will pay off

    cheers, wish you a great progress!

    Great studies so far, just keep at it and you will see improvement in time. Just be patient and make drawing a habit. Persistence is vital. Keep up the good work!

    First off, concentrate on the underlying structure before you get caught up in the surface details. These books will help! http://gekos.no/art/index.php/compon...task,viewpost/

    Keep it up!
