    Awesome! Just a heads up for the anatomy, unless you want to draw sceletons, the shading and detais won't help you a lot when studying the bones. Important are the right proportions (Femur same lenght as foot + tibia, ribcage 2 heads hight etcetc) as well as the important attachment-points for the muscles, like the great trochantor, and stuff like that.

    But before you go crazy with the indepth stuff I would advice to study the forms first, get a feeling of where in the body the bulges are and simplify the body in its entirety while getting an understanding of gesture and proportion of the BIG parts. No need to study toes just yet
    speaking of which, you should really not draw those yet, try to find a way to cut out the details in your drawing, use the contures, a geometrical construction, whatever. And draw a lot from reference. Life would be the best, but fotos work fine too.

    GOGOGO!

    Silwynar my friend... What are you doing?
    Why are you doing this? You left me once again
    alone on the battlefield. You have disappeared again.
    You went through the WOW crysis, but what is happening now?
    There are no excuses! You have to do some pushups and to draw
    some extra hours. YES! You are right! I do not have any useful
    crits or advices for you, cause I am brainless, I just want to go
    fight my spirit out, but YOU will have to come with me.
    There will be no mercy out there, you will have to
    bring all your pencils with you and there will be
    a do or die situation.
    And I have some special type of boots for you.
    Are you ready and prepared for this !?!?

    shiNIN Thanks. I will try to focuse more on the proportions. I tend to forget to watch them while drawing ^^''

    ~Faust~ Thanks. You are right, they don't need to be detailed like in the BIG 3 side study. But i think it's okay too because i like fantasy and when i want to draw skeletons it isn't useless to know how the bone looked correctly.
    Anyway, let's see :) Thanks faust ^-^

    LtPlissken Dude, i nearly fell of my chair. Your replies are always like "PHUUUUUWWW!" I am damn sorry that i left you alone at the battlefield one more time.
    I really hope it isn't going to be one time more anyday!
    Thanks for your comment my friend!

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

    MOOOOAAAAR Anatomy! :>
    Absorbing these new informations like soup :D
    I drew these legs from references and then tried to draw the bone inside.
    Notices are on the side, so some mistakes i noticed already.
    And then a face where i totally failed!
    I try to draw 5 faces everyday from now on..

    Greetings, Sil

    Sorry bud, but I think the head would look even better drawn with a running chainsaw!
    The proportions look pretty.... let me say... L.A.Z.Y.!!! You can do this SO much better. But why don't you?

    The anatomy studies look good. More of those. And draw (let's say) 20 heads. Just rough egg shapes, ellipses, circles or what ever. And mark them, divide them into pieces for height, width etc. Like a head is 5 eyes broad, the lips are 1/3 under the nose tip etc.

    Hey,
    i just viewed some of your recent pages, and i think i got a lil advice for you, except from keep doing those studies and sketches...they"ll definitely will bring you to a higher skill level.

    Try to loosen up a bit with your lines and the way you draw, i"ll try to explain with making an example of your last head/face study...
    in my opinion the process of drawing/sketching is supposed to look like that- even if you do a face/head study:
    A. making your mind on what you want to draw or start making huge amount of doodles if you don't know till you"ll get something that you want to develop further.
    B. if you want to draw a face/head just make the overall shape with some loose lines. don't try to draw the skull/ other directing lines.
    C.again in loose lines start to draw the smaller shapes, eyes, nose...
    D.check if every thing is in it's place (nose not too long, eyes not too big...) thats where you can use some guidance lines, for symmetry, skull shape and etc...
    E. start putting more pressure on the pencil were it's needed to convey, shapes and forms, to form the eyes, lips and etc.
    F. you start working on the details.. hair eye lashes, and making the final touches...

    i actually made some sketches today that show the way i do it ...it's just the way i do it and it works for me, there are a lot of people that wont agree with me though.
    Hope i helped a lil bit.
    Alex.

    here is the sketch page, it shows different faces on different stages from A to E (never got to F in those )

    Heyyy, looks like we're both studying legs.
    As usual you're doing studies, studies, studies. Which is brilliant! Always do what ever you can to retain information (think in patterns and trends, relate the size of things to other things so you can replicate these in your imaginative works)
    Then again, I'm working to try and do this myself, so we're in the same boat here.

    Anyways, keep up the good work mate.

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -

    Well I think you drew too short tibia(s?) in your last update... They aren't THAT much shorter than the femur. And when someone sits on his heels, the heel bone (calcaneus) and the head of the femur comes close, I mean their distance from the knee is similar. One sits on his heels and on his heels only, about half of the sole are behind the butt
    I hope my clumsy words make sense

    That. Head. Well, everyone has bad moments I guess... If you aren't certain you can do it without guidelines, just use them Eyes are in the middle or a bit higher (sometimes more than a bit I love diversity in human faces ), Hairline is a bit below the top of the head, hairline/brow/nose/chin, each pair is roughly in similar distance, the good old way, I used it till lately . It's good if you don't make standard faces though And draw lightly first, fix proportion flaws as soon as possible, before you start rendering the features.

    You plan to draw skeletons in the future? Sweet!

    Nice work, pal! On your heads, remember your basic proportions! Eyes in middle yada yada. I always have to go back to that way of thinking when I do faces. One good thing to do is to just do alot of heads, not faces but heads. What I mean is just to get to know the shape of the head and where the features go, without worrying at all about detail of the eyes, mouth and all that. But I'm sure you are already doing that. I just think its a nice exercise it helps me alot.
    Anyway, keep up the good work!

    Damn this sketchbook has grown fast! You're studying at a pretty steady pace, you seem to strive to understand what you're studying rather than just copying and varying the things you're studying. Probably nothing new to you but those are my impressions after looking through your sketchbook. Your enthusiasm is inspiring, keep up the good work!

    SO much comments! Thank you all! I love you!

    Bethany K. Thanks! Glad you like my studies. Keep visiting

    himart Hey thanks for commenting A few anatomy books. They taste great... ;P

    TRAP! Haha! xD Yes i will practice these damn heads more. Thanks for commenting dude

    Fallenangel Thanks! Great you showed me your way of drawing a head.
    Seems very good. Tried a quick one today, but i need more time to do it this way. I will try it with more time tomorrow or on the weekend! Thanks so far dude.

    Marlo Hey Glad you like them!

    Naidy Yeah Seems like we are really on the same boat. Keep practicing too naidy We see ourselves on the top of artists in a few years!

    shiNIN Thanks I keep practicing these legs to fix the lengt problem.
    I think i just should do the heads more slowly. Then they would be better imo! Let's see!

    alexson Thanks. Need to remember the rules of proportion and then keep drawing over weeks Ty for visiting!

    smuli Not really fast Really slow in my opinion. There are some times where i draw much and some where i don't draw anything ~.~ Gnahh!
    Thanks!
    Keep visiting dude

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

    Went to my art "teacher" like every wednesday and we talked a lot, so not that much drawings today. Perhaps we are going to take an figure life drawing course.
    I just have to persuade my mom about the idea
    The course is mondays really late 8:00pm -> 10:XXpm.
    And then it is half an hour to get to the spot with car.
    And i don't have a car myself x_x
    Let's see.
    I think it would help me awesome to get to a life drawing course. ^_^

    So here's my today stuff.
    Anatomy and a quick head (5mins).
    Failed with proportions again. I need to let myself more time for these heads.
    DAMN!

    I think everyday a self-portrait is going to get me better forward then drawing 5 heads from reference.

    Greetings, Sil

    Thursday is the day where i have school til late afternoon and then i also had to learn stuff for chemistry.

    BUT! :D
    Haha there's a but! ;)
    I drew a SELF PORTRAIT FROM MIRROR! *everyone screams*

    Looks not thaaat bad in my opinion but when i flip it in photoshop it looks really shitty which tells me that i have to train it moooooooore!
    It's not totally looking like me, my face is actually longer ;)

    Faces in #396 - sooo coool, the economy of the
    line is on a top level, and you just felt the shadows,
    like a Jedi felt his powers.
    Self portrait is not really successful I guess,
    but more practice will improve your skills.
    Hair looks like pasted on the head, cause you
    did not made any shadows under it. The hair almost
    all the time cast some shadow on the forehead.
    Study light and shadows also on a more simpler object,
    like a ball or take an apple and watch how the shadow
    and light reacts on it. When you are doing graphite,
    you have to think monochromatic. You can turn your
    vision from color to monochromatic just like the Predator did
    with the use of his mask.
    You just need to find the switch.

    yeah sil!! i see those legs with the bones inside em... what are you trying to say? that i don't do that anymore??? haha jkjk. those are excellent studies and a great way to learn. i think it would be awesome if you could make it to the monday life drawing sessions.

    regarding the last SP... the one directional line rendering works but i think in only such circumstances...? perhaps do without the heavy outlining and try to see how to create form with just value shifts alone (i gotta do more of that too). i see that you are getting the sense of form in which direction you're putting your hatching but in some areas the form seems to fall flat-- specifically in the brow and mouth region. try doing smaller studies of facial features and practice following the form when you put down your lines.

    lots of improvement all over buddy! keep it up

    hey silw', try to keep in mind that there are general measurements for placement of facial features and proportioning of head sizes. When you get these down you can go crazy with variations.


    Keep going :B

    Hey,
    I should probably be the last person to criticize someone else's face drawings but I think it would help you to start drawing a face with some basic lines: hairline, eyeline, mouthline. I don't know what book you use but "Drawing the Head and Hands" by Andrew Loomis is pretty useful, it is all well explained there and you can download it for free.

    Judging from the first page to the most recent, I say that you have improved quite a bit; yet you still have a ways to go. Just keep practicing while at the same time, trying something with a bit of imagination to it.

    I eat art for breakfast! Reloaded! [Update: 05.06.]

    Hey

    My is lukas, i am 16 years old and i am a student in germany (going to 10th class - 3 years left til abitur ._. ).
    My hobbys are drawing, painting and all this stuff.
    I also enjoy playing video games like Warcraft 3 with my friends.

    My dream is it to get a job as an illustrator or concept artist someday.
    That's why i (hopefully) start working hard and daily.
    Studies, studies and mooooore studies ;>

    I hope you all can help me to reach this dream with critique and shiny motivation wave's to give me motivation!

    Here's my stuff for TODAY (or yesterday in our time zone)!
    Skeleton figure from mind to see my anatomy weaknesses and then 50 60 seconds poses from posemaniac.
    At last a few quick anatomy studies about the knee (after Bammes).

    Greetings,
    Valoo!

    Hello! Awesome start! The gestures will definitely help you with movement. You are doing great with drawing 50 gestures so far. Just keep drawing and practicing! Keep up the hard work and can't wait to see more!

    Solid start. Keep up the constant drawing, make sure to draw from life as much as possible and try out as many different approaches to learning as you can. http://lovecastle.org/draw/ Is a bit of a better starting point to draw references from, rather than posemaniacs.

    Good luck

    I just beat Wind Waker for the first time yesterday and now you're here. That's Crazy. Your studies are nice, keep posting! Daily's a really good goal. Definitely take Tehmeh's advice, drawing real people will be a whole lot more helpful than posemaiacs' muscle frame puppet things.

    man, the world seems to be small =D I'm studying at the University of Applied Sciences Trier (Fachhochschule Trier). Seems like this town has many people who like drawing and painting.
    Very well, just go on with you studies! It's a good start already. Maybe you can try to use less lines when you make the gesture drawings

    hey Sil! it's good that you are doing so many studies.

    Now,
    1) are your eyes really that big? (I need to be careful with this question because turns out I am just used to small eyes )
    2) is there really a thick dark line running down the side of your face? (you could have painted one on your face though...)

    I get the feeling that you drew the self portrait from life which may explain some of the inconsistencies in the viewing angle.
