    Ahhhh!! Azumanga Diaoh I love it so much

    Great stuff, I think doing some imaginary stuff even if it's really bad is a good thing. Don't be afraid to show us them too! I tend to feel that way and I need to change my attitude like you.

    sil~ you are trucking along like a madman. indeed we all fall at some point but we learn from these mistakes and it's only then that you get even better. i understand your frustration with the bone issue on post 312 and it really reminded me of when you were telling me back before i should think about more the underlying structure of the human body thus drawing the bones overlaying the figures-- maybe you can do this too with photos and it will help you understand them more ?

    i think the strongest piece so far in your recent updates is the portrait from post 319. you've demonstrated using a wide range of values and it seems to make sense in the lighting situation but the form falls a little flat in some areas such as the chin and cheek. try going over those loomis heads again and place them next to photographs of portraits/heads and observe how the planes/surfaces change to create those 'bulbous' features lying on top. i too need to do this-- so you're not alone in that!

    keep drawing buddy and i will try to drop by more ;3

    I've watched your first pages and the last ones. Your SB has one year, and you have a lot of improvements since then. Be proud of this! And always keep practicing, even when you feel discouraged. It happens sometimes, to everyone. But drawing everyday is the best way to achieve success. Keep it up the good work, Silwynar.

    Bethany K. Okay! Thanks! Next plan: Ear studies! ;) Yeah the head turned out flat even though i studied some planes before. Hard thing imo!

    karmiclychee You got a PM :) Happy you like my lines. But in my opinion i really have to work on them! Thanks!

    shiNIN Dude! Nothing to say sorry. I am happy about EVERY comment you give me :D Shame on yourself for thinking that rude! :P
    I really need to train the ear. You (all) are totally right.
    And pelvis is a DAMN hard thing i noticed before! Not easy form ~.~
    Thank you dude!

    Black Spot Interesting because it is something abstract i think? ;)
    Thank you Black Spot!

    LtPlissken Thats the kind of comment i think of you! Great ;D
    You are really a strange (but awesome cool) guy!
    Thanks my friend!

    tronrobot Thanks dude!

    thedestroyer I started reading it but i am not through it yet. I should continue reading because it is really a good book.
    Thanks!

    SenEnd I show everything to you all! :D Everything art related i mean :P
    Thanks! And glad you like my avatar! ;)

    Velocity Kendall Dude ;_; These are DAMN old. Looks at it's brush work. It is shit! How can you like them! Shame on your head! :D

    teapo NOT trucking along like you! But thanks for this great critique.
    I noticed too that failing is really a thing you need for progress! Without failing there is no way to improve. Because WHERE should you improve when there is nothing where you fail? :D
    Idea with underlaying structure is great. Totally forgot that i suggested this to YOU! ~.~
    I keep pushing dude!
    And it would be awesome if you would drop by more :)

    jramauri No! It's not that much progress that i coud be really proud of it i think. It is "okay". Nothing world changing! :D
    I hope this year will be better.
    Thanks dude!

    Mitze Thanks! I will definitely!

    Kungfoowiz Yeah you are still living :) Thanks for commenting. I will study hard!

    -------------------------------------------

    WTFOMG?! THIS much comments. Something happened that everyone dropped in this sketchbook? My new sketchbook icon that kind of awesome?
    Or is it my new haircut? ;)
    Thank you all! Great!

    People, it is hard to tell you... but...
    i got a COLD again ~.~
    I wanted to have an awesome restart and now?! A cold!
    Actually every year around this time i get one. Don't really know why.
    I hope to regenerate soon. So around this not that much output.

    I joined a weekly contest on a german forum.
    The subject:
    You are a new investigator in brain subject.
    The palament asked you to join a super secret project in the antarctic.
    You applied and boots, helicopter's, ... took to this place under the earth.
    Now the people who introduce you show you what's the secret.
    A great metal door opens and behing a big glass windows you see what's that secret.
    Now it is your turn!
    What is the secret in the subject of brain investigation?

    I thought of something historical and religious.
    They found the brain of Adam & Eva.
    Now you can investigate in the past of these two people through the brain.
    Is the catholic religion true or is it all uttered shit?
    Perhaps this discovery is going to change the complete religion of the world?

    So far so good.
    First i developt 2 thumbnails.
    Then i set up a construction in Google Sketch Up.
    Started a rough lineart + values.

    But now i am recognizing that this one is shit.
    It looks like 2 people shopping and looking through the window of one opened shop :P
    Now i got a little new construction.
    Is it better?
    What do you know? I don't want this shopping window look.

    I thought about chancing Adam & Eva to just "Jesus".
    He is a bit more "famous" and with his brain we could get more important informations i think.
    But first i have to think about the perspective look.
    I want to get something dramatic "Woooow!" scene.
    Any help? ^-^

    So far so good.
    Greetings Sil

    PS: This all was very hard to write in english. I hope you all understand it anyways.

    Hey Friend!

    Your updates are pretty good at this time!
    I really like the last idea. I'll write you maybe tomorrow to tell you my idea for the band thing. I wanna know what you think about all that.

    I need to get Google Sketch Up right nooooow.
    Love it man.
    I'm going to get into the 3D stuff in the next few weeks I think.
    When you're working with something in 3D you see the light, shadows and perspective. Three things you and I have to learn.

    Keep your stuff up any way!
    I like it!

    Flo

    love the sketchup play for the adam/eve pieces-- it is good you joined that weekly contest through that german site you mentioned. i believe pushing yourself into more works will get you further AND it will keep you more busy :3

    i'm sorry to hear about your cold and it's quite funny you mention that because this past week i've been sick ;_; but i should be fine now :3 just coughing a lot though

    well, i hope you feel better soon buddy~

    Nice progress. I skipped back to page 1 and compared it with your most recent work. Those studies definitely paying off! Keep it up!

    Hey bro, yip Kojot is right, a black and white to comp is a good idea.. also imho practice perspective by drawing too, for example draw with your whole arm locked and make long brisk marks for straighter lines. Good luck with it.. =)

    hücumkedi Thanks dude! I really hope that i never give up! ~.~

    tasser Yeah it is great. But i think you first need to get a small concept on paper. When you start 3D first, it ends looking too constructed and stiff.
    But a great way.
    Can't wait to hear your news :D
    Btw. i thought about learning zBrush. Great way to model things! *_*

    NickyBeats I keep going, alright! >:D Thanks for visiting!

    Partisan XD Naaiiiiice :D Bei mir eher Paracetamol, aber das wirkt auch ganz gut. Mein Output heute war ja gar nicht so übel fand ich. Danke fürs vorbeischauen!

    teapo Thanks dude! Always great to see you in my sketchbook. I am glad you liked the sketchup piece, but today i got a new concept without playing in Sketch Up ! :P
    Thanks for visiting dude! :> PS: 2x thanks is better than only one time ^^''

    bhanu Thanks. I am coming forward slow with anatomy. Need to push myself harder in this area :D

    whisper_wm Thaaanks! :)

    kojot Thanks. Applied this in my new concepts this evening. Only one time but i am going to use it more often. Today it looked alright in my opinion ;)

    Kungfoowiz Dude... brisk marks? Don't know what this means :D Anyway, i practiced straigt lines moving my complete arm. Perhaps you meant something LIKE that :D Thanks for dropping by!

    alexson Thank you. I definitely will!

    ---------------------------------------

    Thanks for all these nice comments again.
    My cold gets worse and worse and at the moment my stomach hurts too ._.
    What a kind of bad world ~.~

    Today i made a new concept for the contest.
    Idea is still the same but instead of Adam & Eva i use the "brain of jesus" now.
    Perspective works lot of better now.
    Only with the values i am not that sure.
    Look at the concepts pls :)
    The #2 or #3 one?

    Also practiced making straight lines with my compleeeete arm and did small photostudys 10mins each. First ones looks like crap, lol! But no color picking! :>

    Anyway, i am happy about what i did today.

    Greetings, Sil

    I'm loving those landscapes, seeing stuff like that really makes me want to go off and do some of my own when I have the time.

    But anyways, nice updates since I last checked, like the cross-hatching practice pages for some reason too.
    Anyways, some good stuff and you're a hard worker, it shows in how much you study, so just keep up the progress. C:

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    wow Sil great improvement from when I was last here! (which was a pretty long time ago, heh...)

    That's a pretty interesting concept. But you can try scattering more clues here and there to show that it's the Adam and Eve, not two random 21st-century people who were coincidentally named Adam and Eve. Fig leaves?

    Hello. Just stopping by again to see how you're doing. Nice studies so far. Love those two pages of just pure mark-marking.

    How big is that paper that you're doing the lines on? If it's only A4(8.5x11), you should try making the lines reach from one end of the page to the other!

    Keep it up

    Naidy Need to work much harder! Glad you liked the landscapes! Thanks for commenting naidy.

    Bethany K. Thanks! First comment on this subject. I think i will take this new concept with Jesus. My skills aren't that powerful that i can set up an epic piece so this will be quiet good

    krysjez Thanks! But how could i make it more clear? Perhaps date of birth and death on the graveyardstone?

    orochigenocide Thanks. Glad you liked them!

    skMOP Yes only A4. Thanks! I will give it a try tomorrow!

    ------------------------------------------

    Nothing special for today.
    Cold was very bad today so only some figure pieces complete from imagination. Sometimes they turn out "good" for my level.
    Need so study more anatomy and foreshortening

    It's good you're trying to tackle forshortening, I'm terrible myself. But I think you'd do good to look at a few refferences first.

    Or use the Loomis manakin technique as you build a body, you could combine the sort of ringed technique you use with it as you build a solid form around them.

    That said, on the legs of the left figure, I can see how you sketches the skeleton under it, I think those legs are really good, perhaps one of your strong points. I'd work on the upper-torso and neck a bit.

    Anyways, you're doing great so keep up the good work. Building up to make imaginitive peices can be really hard, so you're making progress.

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    teapo When i study these figures themselves i use photos from the internet and for anatomy studies Gottfried Bammes - Die Gestalt des Menschen, which is a great book!
    Only expensive and german. For me perfect that it's german ;D
    Thanks dude!

    Naidy Yes! I think i will use reference photos mostly.
    Legs are "okay". Next thing i will try is the whole upper body more. Especially the neck as you mentioned.
    Thanks!

    Hey there
    From your sketches it looks like you are not trying to block the characters in before you draw them. That makes them look like rubber, as somesone already mentioned, so concentrate on what you want to achieve with your studies and take your time. And try to focus more on the quality of your lines (the exercise you have done is a good step forward )

    Those thumbnails are interesting. Do you want to turn them into a painting?
