    Yeahhhh unless you have time to take like a 90 min nap at some point in the day 5 1/2 hours will not cut it for you haha.

    Wish you luck with your test!

    Something that came to mind, with the elf girl you drew I think she would look more feminine if you made the eye brows thinner. It's fine that they are long but girls tend to have thinner eyebrows naturally then guys.

    I have little patience myself so I can understand you Well I can be somewhat patient when I see my painting is progressing nicely
    What's your problem with being slow? Things are slow when you aren't so very skilled. Maybe not for the next person but if you need to take your time, be it. You can't do much about it anyway except practice
    Mmmm... Your last one has nice things but it's a bit strange. The hair is extremely stylized and doesn't seem to have some properly lit form. It looks some pasted on thing. Not the same realism and consistency level so it looks odd.
    The mouth is a bit uncertain and it shouldn't be outlined.
    You surely see the neck and the collarbone is very sketchy but I don't want to criticize it too much because I tend to do such things myself
    The face and even the expression is different from the original but good resemblance really takes time. I can tear apart most faces below near pro level and sometimes I don't trim my criticism to the level of the creator (and often don't mention the good points), don't worry about it. I like the eyes

    Good luck for your test ~

    Hey Sil,
    your last portait is really nice, especially the face. You've managed to capture her interesting facial expression

    Alex Eh Thank you. Because I need to redo my time management to get 7 hours sleep, I stopped getting up more early last week.
    Now I have two days no school, so I am testing out what fits best.

    Creusa You made my day. Thank you Creusa! ^.^

    shiNIN Thank you very much shiNIN. Always happy about your critique.
    When I am slow I just don't get as much done as I intended too, but I think I have to live with that. Better slowly and careful then massive stuff and nothing helped, hehe!
    After I had the face, I stopped caring about the reference somehow. That's why the hair got stylized Next time I need to be more patient.

    Arti Thanks Artiiiiii )

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

    Sup!
    Passed 3 test over the last days, learned a lot over the whole weekend for a test today.
    But now everything is done and I am free again.
    Started kicking out some stuff this evening again and I hope to get out of the bed tomorrow morning to do some early anatomy.
    Tuesday and wednesday is no school so I can draaaw!

    Beside of that I have a small challange with a friend. Who get's more stuff produced over these 2 days?

    Going to kick his ass...

    Cheers!

    Hello there my friend. Very nice to see you back on track.
    I have to say that your approach is getting more and more
    professional and the improvements are surely visible. Your
    values and understanding of light is much better than before,
    and it's a real wise choice to work in greyscale. The time
    and dedication put into drawing will pay you off, you will
    see, and sooner or later you will be hammering out master
    pieces. So I guess you really know what to do, what to
    study next, and if you continue like this, you will surely
    make a huge success. I will be following as always,
    and you will feel my presence all day long.

    Nice values on the last paintings You definitely improved there. I'm confused about the composition thingie. The little Kony drawings seem to be the very opposite of your study above. Everything is in the center of the image. I didn't do a lot about composition yet, so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong

    And now stop reading and go drawing! :<

    LtPlissken Awesome motivational comment boss! I am really glad that I am making progress, even if still slowly.
    Thanks for stopping my ma friend!

    -Marin- Nah, I didn't really want to use the principle of the golden ratio in these two thumbnails.
    The wouldn't have fit into the kind of concept I wanted to show.
    Kony needed to be central.
    The golden ratio seems to be more for the compositing of different objects.
    That's at least how I got it.
    Thanks for stopping by Marin!

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

    Stuff from today.
    My friend (who isn't on conceptart D did also a lot of stuff, especially traditionell paintings, so I don't really know who won today.
    I am going to let him decide!

    Stuff from today doesn't look as good as the other stuff I have done recently, but I think that's because I moved a little bit more out of my comfort zone.

    And GOD DAMN IT for the self portrait.
    Went out totally different then the one I did before.
    A lot worse in my opinion.
    Need to to more of them to fix this problem D:

    Lets go!
    Sil

    1 - Sketchbook page, fineliner - 2 minutse
    2 - landscape drawing from life, damn it was freaking cold and I forgot to take a bigger pencil with me, would have been easier
    3 - Random scribble from imagination
    4 - Simplified ribcage anatomy from Bammes
    5 - Different faces from reference
    6 - Failed selfportrait - Rendering sucks...

    The Rendering only sucks because of the same reason my renderings suck - lack of knowledge and practice Anyway it's good that you do more stuff now, maybe we should both put some serious thoughts into a schedule.

    hey,
    love your landscapes, especially the ones you drew in grey are amazing.
    Kony seems to have no arms but some logs of wood instead Where's the joint?

    Your last portait studies are good as far as the propotions are concerned, but don't rush (who said that to me? hm? hm? ). The hair seems to be so...I don't know the right word...callous? lifeless? Okay, hair IS lifeless, but maybe it is more...flexible?

    Well, just keep it up and draaaaaw \^_^/ there's definitely progress

    It's no secret that a super being you are becoming here.
    The postman just rung, we should not summon the evil,
    cause no one will call the priest. You have squeezed out some
    oily substance from a mature, ripe grinded semi breeded tomato.
    Those life drawing environment will make you get even more stronger.
    The principal can not harm you any more, he can call his solicitor,
    or he can go banzai directly out the window.
    The last character is a true beauty, but it has kind of a strange
    stance, and the shoulders a bit incorrect anatomically. We are
    nor sure what is he doing, cause his hand is strangely behind his neck.
    Other than that you delivered a great shot to the morning world of art.
    You just do it more often and more harder and nothing can go wrong.

    LtPlissken Oh god. Plissken I really really missed your posts. These are just awesome! Do you write them on your own or are they mixed with some quotes? Thanks dude!

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

    Sup, uhhm yes.
    Hello you, you and YOU!

    No updates for yesterday because I had a conflict with my mum about art and it made me kind of depressed so I just didn't to anything.
    But here's my stuff for today again.

    The portrait from imagination was kind of fun. The first time i used this "blender" tool for pencil. But I don't like it that much. Makes everything too smooth and the pencil texture get's lost

    After that some gestures (fu** yeah, finally doing them again! ), misc stuff about my lines and ladies from reference.

    Cheers!
    Sil

    Good stuff Two things, first focus the studies towards the imagination stuff. Like if you were going to do a portrait from imagination then you should have done 20 2 minute faces and then some longer portrait study. Or with these studies you could have done a figure. You'll just benefit more from it that way

    Secondly I am seeing one major issue in all the work; proportions. Loomis studies and then use that for the figures and some loomis construction would REALLY help out with the imagination portrait

    Edit: did a super quick draw over


    Keep going!

    Usually I do not quote things, but when I quote them, then I make a note
    about it. But the last time I was here, I was listening to this,
    so I guess yous should increase the volume on your devices to the
    max an play it hard;

    Hey Sil ^_^
    I had a conflict with my mum about art and it made me kind of depressed so I just didn't to anything.
    I totally understand you...
    "Why do you always have to do such strange drawings? Why can't you just learn anything NORMAL as all the others do? There's no money in arts..blablabla"
    I tell you, in the end it is your life and your own responsibility. So don't give up or believe in the words of people telling you you're not good enough.

    Your last gesture studies are really good, you should do moooore!
    Rock it.

    Hey Sil, sorry to hear you had an argument with your mother. I think parents raise children with dreams of there own of what they will do. "Oh my son's going to be the next president and save the world from aliens I just know it!" "WHAT?!?" "You liek drawing?" "What about my dream for you D:"

    Anyways just a few thoughts on where your mom's coming from just keep at it! Show her your really into this stuff!

    Nibras Thanks for the overpaint. Some really good points, especially the neck, as I already told you. Cause we talked over skype, nothing more to say Just thanks!

    LtPlissken Not exactly my taste of music, but nice way to create these comments, hehe! Thanks for stopping by my friend

    Arti Artiiiiii Exactly as you described it, but my mum is only against this dark fantasy stuff. For art in gerneral, there is no problem. So I am going to avoid showing her the stuff she wouldn't like ;P
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Good luck with your exams!

    Alex Eh I am happy that it's not that extreme. Art in general seems alright. So I just have to avoid the stuff she doesn't like, hehe!
    Thanks man!

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

    Again a little bit in hurry.
    More of the 90 seconds gestures and again a portrait from imagination.
    Looks not as good as I hoped.
    I need to do some more studies and then really apply them.

    But overall I can't wait to do more. Thanks to my "art buddy" Nibras, my motivation to draw increased a lot.

    Cheers!

    Awwww you're cute Can't wait to see how far you'll go man!
    Gestures are good, I know from experience that they help in a subconscious way. I think to make them even more useful pay attention to proportions and use them as a way to break down forms, so more cylindrical shapes for arms etc
    The face looks better, remember you can't expect to jump to a different level from one day to another! Give it a week but I can already see an improvement.

    Yay, great to see you did some moooore gestures! I personally really like most of them, you did very well.

    By the way, the exams won't stop me from stopping by. However, they stop me from drawing and that's the worst problem...
    (and my hand hurts so much qq)

    Back to topic:
    I may be mistaken, but the man's nose seems to be slightly too big. :>

    Nibras Thanks my dear! I will keep going with the 90 seconds gestures because they just help me to build up a bigger pose library in my head.
    If I get the time I will try to break figures down into forms, but then with no time limit.
    I will keep working, definitely!

    Arti Learn Artiii, leeeeeeearn! You're right about the nose. The nose AND the eyes are too big. Try to fix that in my next portrait.
    Thanks Arti!

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

    Am I in hurry, am I in hurry?
    Don't know, but these days seem way too short.
    Learned like the whole day for a test in school tomorrow.
    And on Thursday there is aleady another test waitiing for me.
    Goood, why do you do such cruel things to me?

    Anyway, enough crying. ;P
    Gestures from this morning and a character sketch from school. Took me 3/4 hours, quite long.

    Greetings,
    Sil

    Lukas Hows it been!? We should totally chat more on skype !

    -crit, basically what everyone has say before, those proportions. The character on post #625, his arms aren't the same proportions. The character is really flat it seems, KChen does a good job of form.
    http://www.angelfire.com/art3/kchendemos/

    Anyway, Keep it up Lukas ! catch you on skype later.

    Yum!

    ven- Thanks ven! Thanks for the link. I alread knew it, but lost the link when I wanted to take a look at it.
    Going to look at some examples from him. I agree that I definitely need to work on the three dimensional form more.

    Alex Eh Thanks man!

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

    During the last few days there was sooo much stuff for school that had to be done, so I didn't get the time to draw.
    Just tried to focus on the tests in school.
    Next week, Tuesday, all tests are over and I can concentrate on my art again.

    But because I can't paint NOTHING, here's a WIP of a painting I started working on this evening.
    Going to pick some references when I am working on it the next time.

    Greetings,
    Sil

    Alex Eh Thanks man!

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

    Just continued working on this piece.
    I like the look of it, but I still want to refine it more.
    Going to pick up some more references next time I work on it.
    Let's see how far I can push myself.

    And again I had to learn for the test on Tuesday.
    Learning so much and still my grades aren't the best ones, haha!

    But here's some sketchbook stuff and a life drawing of a friend.
    Going to do more stuff when Tuesday is over.
