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

    Here we go...
    I feel tired.
    Some motivation would be great but there's nothing that really motivates me. Hm, let's see...

    Ink study as yesterday. Difference is that this one turned into crap. T_T

    i definitely understand what you're going through as you mentioned here. and you're right, it's either because you don't know how to continue painting because lacking knowledge of said material. more studies will help you overcome that problem i get stuck a lot sometimes when sketching a character because i don't know how to convey a certain pose i want and i end up switching to some 'generic' posture/stance (meaning i should probably study more poses?) XD.

    anyway, studies are looking good. keep drawing :3

    Your ink compared to the Franklin Booth one you posted on the previous page is that he left a lot out. That will come with practice.

    Drawing figures from the imagination is tough. You need to understand the structure before playing with it. I'm busy addressing this in my own work. There are many ways to go about it - doing Loomis, Bridgeman, Reilly etc. Find out which one you find works best for you - I prefer the Reilly method more, but that's just me.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Hi there, nice sketchbook. Keep up the good work.

    I made an attempt at fixing one of your studies below:

    Name:  1.jpg
Views: 571
Size:  223.9 KB

    Sorry if I have butchered your drawing but I wanted to emphasize a couple of structural flows in the upper body. The red cross shows the hints you should have followed according to me. I am not a great artist so it may still have flows but I think that's a step in the right direction.

    Constructive criticism should be constructive .

    My 2 cents,

    Take care.

    Edit: I also wanted to mention that structure is more important than proportions. You can have the most accurate proportions in the world and yet the drawing feels completely wrong. Structural flows are not forgiving.

    teapo Thanks dude. Great to know that i was right with my thinkin that i haven't the knowledge for this painting yet. ;>
    And yeah, i did keep drawing!

    Black Spot Thanks Black Spot. The Reilly method seems best for me, but i find it sometimes kinda hard to use this method. So for me, it's right know Gottfried Bammes and a few other books mixed together

    Creusa Naaaah! I should definitely work again on that piece. But at the moment i just don't get the motivation to start working again :/ Soon dude, soon!

    Zelrik I don't really get what your overpaint wants to show me, sorry dude I am doing the red line for the angle of shoulders and pelvic everytime if you meant that ? ;o
    I also have to disagree with your proportion opinion.
    In MY opinion proportions are more important than the structure.
    But that's just my 2 cents ^^
    Thanks for commenting!

    strangedawn Thanks. Glad you like my work. I think that i could be ways better for my age. I have to train more

    Keep up the bone studies. They look really fun to do. And good luck to your Frank Frazetta master study.

    One thing I want to add about your Franklin Booth ink study is that you need to pay attention to the form of things. The clouds, buildings, and landscape would look more recognizable if the hatching followed the forms. Do you see how the hatchings curved on the clouds from the ink piece on the last page?

    @Silwynar. My point with that red line is that you have drawn the vertical part of it in your sketch but didn't use it, in other words, you didn't draw the horizontal part of it which would have been useful to understand why the arms looked broken.

    Structure is more important than proportions, if you are shooting for realism that is. Caricatures are 'living' proofs of that fact. If you don't care about realism, I can't argue with that .

    I used to care about proportions a lot more than I should have. The only way for me to progress now it to understand anatomy and perspective better.

    Edit: Your last gestures look nice by the way ^_^

    Hey there! Great studies so far! I'm really digging the gestures and the bone studies. Your anatomy studies are coming along nicely as well. With the ink study you did earlier on, I have trouble figuring out the forms. For example, the clouds shouldn't have straight lines, but more curved lines. I hope that made sense. Keep it up!

    Comparing your latest quick gesture sketches to ones from a month ago, there's LOADS of improvement! Good use of ellipses for foreshortening too. Frazetta study looks like a good start, looking forward to seeing its progress. As a minor nitpick, some of your figures lack some sense of weight like this one and this one, remember to rotate the hips when most of the weight's on one leg. I really admire your diligence, keep it up!

    Take it easy with those studies Silwynar my friend,
    you are overheating the hyper extended refrigerator.
    You tend to elongate some of your characters.
    Keep up with the magical pace.

    The structured figures are coming on nicely. You could always take a couple of them and mess about with them digitally for fun. Study, fun, study, fun - much better way not to burn out when studying, and you might learn something from having fun.

    Got some critiques but try to catch me on skype or something. I had no idea you were 17, or maybe I just forgot. Keep up the good work and make sure you draw daily

    Need to get myself slowly into digital art more!
    So here's my digital stuff for today.

    I don't have the time to do as much as normally because i am learning for the theoretical drivers license test.

    Last painting is a WIP of the head i drew a time ago.
    I will continue working on that to train my blending and rendering skills.

    Cheers!

    Oh, again a new sketchbook? I hope it will last for a while now And you start again to be busy!

    For the latest update: are you using a reference for values of the girls face? Getting the values right or better than now would be cool before rendering and blending. And don't use a white background. That's just irritating if you want to go for dark values. It's difficult to see the real values if the contrast between background and the motif is that high

    Not another SB! What I liked about the first is that we could all see the improvement you were making. Mixed bag. The bridge picture needs the values pushed a lot more. The apple studies are looking good. The girl's face - think where the light is coming from as I'm seeing it from both sides.

    Valyavande Thanks. I actually have a reference for the values of her face, but i didn't use it for the values so far. I should definitely use it when i continue working on it. :)
    Normally i use a grey background. I don't really know why i forgot it this time! Thanks for reminding.

    BlackSpot Yeah a new one. Was a kinda foolish idea. Perhaps i am going to ask a nice moderator to merge them together again.
    First when i start a sketchbook i think that it's good to make a new start, but actually you can't really start a "blank canvas" again.
    Light on the girls face is diffuse because i didn't use my reference. ;)
    Thanks!

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

    Perhaps tomorrow the sketchbooks will be merged again. Perhaps perhaps.
    As you can read in my reply to sketchbook i am already regretting that i opened a new one. Gnah god damn it!

    Here's my anatomy stuff...

    Thanks Emily (who did it i think! ).

    So don't wonder why Valyavande and BlackSpot commented about a new sketchbook.

    Thanks!

    Thanks a lot for the comment! Your studies are looking good, just keep going! Try to be careful with your fundamental stuff like mass and proportions. Maybe review Loomis' successful drawing. Hope you feel better soon!

    Haha, wenn Du richtig perspektive machen wolltest würdest Du sehen, dass das letzte Bild ziemlich ausserhalb des Sichtfeldes ist (Cone of vision 40/60°) und andere kleine nettigkeiten wie unschöne tangenten keine variation in den Fluchtpunkten usw. Perspektive ist etwas, dass man sich wie alles andere aneignen kann um entweder langweilige FormelZeichnungen herzustellen oder um interessante Aufgaben zu lösen um interessantere und tiefere resultate zu erzielen. Dasselbe mit den Gestik-skizzen. Es ist ungemein wichtig, diese Rythmen im auge zu behalten aber wenn DU den Menschlichen Körper immer auf diese Art anfängst zu zeichnen kommst Du in einen MAnierismus hinein der alle deine zeichnungen gleich aussehen lässt. Übung und Studie ist okay, aber versuch IMMERrrr, eine persönliche Note hinzubringen. Sei es dass du den Figuren Zigaretten zum rauchen gibst, dass Du sie weiter ausmalst als nötig oder was weiss ich. Und konzentrier dich darauf, was Du mit der Studie erreichen willst. Elches Problem willst Du ausmerzen? Und wenn DU keine Probleme hast, wieso machst DU dann so eine Studie? Ist es dann nicht besser, ein größeres Projekt zu beginnen? Dann siehst DU nämlich wieder, wo es hapert und du kannst viel gezielter dein schwächen angehen.

    All in all I'm glad you're back ! Like your stuff, please continue to grow!

    Steadily but surely you are making progress.
    I think doing some quick gestures would help you improve your flow and proportions.
    Also i've seen you count some figures, until #267 or so. Is there a challenge you're doing?
    That's good, lots and lots of figures will eventually make your work pay off.
    You said it well in my sketchbook so i guess good luck!
    And thank you for your visit.
