    When you're working from ref it's a good idea to super-impose it over what you've drawn to see how far you were out. Adobe stuff is expensive but Serif has some cheap/free programs that'll do the job.

    You're looking on course to being great, but this is just the beginning.

    Her arms are as thick as her legs, and one arm is longer than the other. Where are you going to take this as it could be fun to work on?

    Hi!
    The studies are definitely coming along - faces still have proportion issues, but already a great improvement from the first post. As for the last pic there; the arms have been mentioned already (as for arm length, the elbow generally comes down to the bottom of the rib cage, and the wrist just below the hips/in line with the crotch - measuring this with your eye can help in the drawing process). Also try some hand studies some time, Bridgman has good ones! I know hands are hard, they drive me insane when I have to draw them
    Keep it up!

    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.

    You're coming along. See the lines you do over the face when practising Loomis, do the same for your faces from magazines.

    Ahhh, in 10 minutes is christmas over and i didn't post anything!

    I didn't have so much time to draw, but in the drawings i draw, i saw a lot of things for self-critique.

    I got the Bridgman Book for Christmas, so i studied a lot from him.
    Now i know how this Laughing-Folds are coming! xD

    Let's go, but in chronogical order please!

    Two Faces, first i liked them, but now i see wrong things....
    Never-ending journey!

    I just drawed without noticing anything. Sry, first the pencil colours were colored, but my scanner scanned it in grey tones
    Never-ending journey!

    The crazy puppet. The upper body is good, but the rest...
    Never-ending journey!

    All without reference. It was fun! Perhaps someone know the boy called "Tobi"!
    Never-ending journey!

    Bridgman Studies! Bridgman you were rocking! He's dead, isn't he? ^^''
    Never-ending journey!

    A little Jack hamm, a little Bridgman and a head where i wasn't with my thoughts at the picture....
    Never-ending journey!

    So, that was it already.
    I hope that i'm going to draw more.
    Nyo, but better so than nothing
    Critique and comments are welcome!

    Greetings, Xeno.

    It seems the main thing for getting better atm is pretty much what you are doing. Drawing is very much exercise. Everytime you draw you are exercising your brain, and hand-eye coordination. Like a muscle it needs to be worked in repitition for it to become strong. So when beginning observational drawing and studies should be the majority of the drawing you are doing. But yeah throw some imagination stuff in to test your memory and have some fun.
    I find when drawing heads/portraits it's best to focus on the overall shape of the head before working on the features. You will find you can match somebodies likeness by even getting the head shape down. Then mark in lightly where the features sit and once that's in the right place start getting details. When placing features and shadows of the face it's a good idea to squint so you don't get bogged down in detail too quick. Squinting will help with all observational drawing in the beginning stages of a drawing. Allowing you to simplify initally then get into details later on.

    Hey man, I got your email, I'd be happy to pop by everynow and then to offer advice!

    So, for today, a good place to start is to begin to understand how when you are drawing you are trying to create an illusion of a 3D object represented in 2D. The best way to understand this is to draw from life. Interpreting the 3D object you see in front of you into a good drawing is always much more difficult than studying from a photo, and much more rewarding. that's not to say photo studies aren't a good thing! Life drawing will always be the best though Try doing some selfportraits in a mirror. Don't be disheartened if the first few don't turn out so good, you will improve rapidly and enjoy it a lot hopefully Take care buddy.

    Never-ending journey!

    SKIP TO THE LAST PAGES. THIS IS SOME 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!

    I hope you keep this one up. You shouldn't worry about not posting, I hardly posted much in the first year and then rocketed. You're still at school and are at the age where you have a lot of subjects to study. You're not here to impress, but to learn and be encouraged.

    Nice seagull.

    Haha, thanks dude!
    Yes you're right School is taking a lots of time!
    Often when i'm finished with my homework i only want so sit down and relax, surfing in the internet and listening to music.

    Since my last post, i didn't draw soooo much, but the pictures i draw went out very nice.
    If i look back, is see a lot of improvement.
    Actually i'm doing my first trys in the human body.
    It's a lot of fun, seeing that it isn't that hard as i believed!

    So, next post, you will get a few nice pictures

    I find drawing the negative space helps a lot - this means drawing the space around what you want to draw, making it more of an abstract exercise, it also means what's left has to be right and the detail will fall into place later. Just keep sketching and it will fall into place as I can see you are improving.

    Hah, I know the feeling of wanting to be able, but not wanting to actually do it. I guess it's a kind of rut. xD
    The bird looks good Did you use a photo reference? Unfortunately I'm not apt enough to critique digital paintings but I think the overall form looks alright

    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.

    Oh my clock rings... Time for a UPDATE!
    Only traditionell drawings, but still life's, a lot of things from ref and a char without ref (looks ugly!)

    Please critique, i really need them for improvement

    1. Drawing: A few still life objects really simple drawn for repeating the basics
    2. : I tried to draw a few trees, but they have a comic style. Perhaps i will try it more real
    3. : Face with Ref. There are a lot of mistakes in it, but i like it because the face has something like emotions!
    4. : Welcome to the UGLY BOY! Without ref... I have to draw more without ref...
    5. : Just from today! A nudity drawing. I will do more of them. They help to practice the figure!
    6. : Now the still life! I know you were just waiting for it! A spoon on my rubber!

    Now grab your keyboard and write me tipps or comments! Please!

    Hey thanks for dropping by my sb. The nudity drawing is nice, perhaps the structure underneath the skin is a little messed up, but I guess with some practise! that wont be a problem.

    You've got a good eye for colour and good for you not using the colour picker. That tornado is full of life.

    With trees the bunches of leaves overlap each other a lot and when in full leaf you don't really see the branches that much. Also think about the whole foliage as an abstract shape, sphere, cone etc and shade it that way. Just do more and it'll come.

    @Konstruktion: Thank you Yeah, but after a model it would be more nice than a picture.

    @Black Spot: Youuuu again! Thank you for dropping again in my sketchbook. Yes, your advice with the trees seems to be correct. Thank you!

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

    Update.
    Only two Pictures, but hey! Better than nothing!
