    He was doing them traditionell and me digital.

    Was a lot of fun. You can cleary see how much I struggled with the first ones.

    Yay.
    My website / blog relaunched.
    It's now made under blogspot to keep it simple. I am very happy with the result.
    Be sure to check it out: http://lukasesch.tk/

    And then also some gestures and a portrait completely from imagination.
    Not very happy with the result of the portrait.
    Soooo much to learn!

    Ramalooke Thanks man. Yeah I definitely need to get my anatomy practices running again. But there's sooo much I want to learn.

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

    Small update.
    Today's portrait from photo reference.
    Sadly, it took me way longer than expected, but on the other side I am quite happy with the result.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Heyheyhey he. he... h... asleep.

    Right now it's very late here in Germany - 3:34am!

    I had to help my parents out for the whole day and then I went to my friends to watch a movie.
    While I drove home I was totally amazed by the sky and how the light reflected everywhere.

    So I basically had to paint this quick one (quick, haha... 3hours!) completely from imagination.
    It's truly not a masterpiece and I am very sleepy now.
    Anyways, need to sleep.
    Here's the painting. I hope it doesn't appear to dark on some screens.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Heyaa!

    Proud to present you Daenerys Targaryen from Games of Thrones.
    Not very happy with the portrait. Took me very loong and there are a lot of outlines looking through.
    And memo:
    - PRACTICE HAIR! ._.

    Plan for tomorrow is to do a few simplified heads with rendered hair.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    I think Daenerys skin is much too dark in your portrait. She has a very light skin and the background is kind of bright too. So the light on her skin and of the background doesn't really match. Make it lighter and softer. Maybe use even some soft edges, that'll help to get rid of the outlines.
    But I have to admit, I see some progress on this page =) You're on your way. Studies are starting to work better and better. Keep it up!

    Hey there! Where are those simplified heads with rendered hair?!
    Good thing to see you pushing a drawing towards a more rendered, finished look.

    Mind i suggest concentrating more on the atmosphere. Think of the part of the day
    the action takes place, and try thinking of the edges, whether it is soft or hard,
    and try representing this in a way, in a artistic way, in your personal way.

    Cheers

    figures on #694 are great you do need to spend a lot of time studying basic forms though, for example the glass of liquid in #694 is very off. keep going at it

    Fundamentals ahead! ~Daily updates~

    My sketchbooks got merged thanks to BlackSpot!
    Due some problems with my old account (Pixelwalker) a few months ago, I created a new one (this one - Nemome) and a new sketchbook. BlackSpot was so nice to merge the two sketchbooks together again, but my accounts still aren't merged (have to wait until an admin has the time to do it).
    Sorry if you are / were confused!

    Tried out the black and white thing Mr.Delicious and Miles_ were doing in their sketchbooks.
    I have to admit, it's freaking fun.

    good start, nice you got clear objectives that is one of the key things to have in mind, might want to write down what you suck most at and work from there, tho i dont think you suck at all it all comes to practice and learning the theory behind it all, i recommend some constructive anatomy to begin and doing some gestures theres alot of information here and in the internet, work your ass off and i promise you will see results

    another thing too, find a pace you are comfortable with and stick to it so you dont get overworked or depressed, and if thats the case thats what we all are here for

    lionheartGFX Thanks man. I've done tons of gestures in the past, and they weren't really useful. I try to get some basic anatomy down first and then I'll try gestures again. Perhaps they make more sense / are more useful then.

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

    Anatomy stuff from Hampton and also applying it to some reference photos. Jesus, it's nice to understand what's happening in the reference photo.

    Anatomy really makes sense when you finally understand what you're drawing, damn!
    Should have done this stuff way earlier! D:

    First one is just from Hamptons book and the last drawing is drawn without reference. I basically wrote down my standpoint and where I need to improve most, considering the figure.

    Unfortunately I didn't get as much time today as I wanted to have.
    But here's another one I finished right now.
    They take me longer than exptected, usually around 1-2 hours, which is kinda long in my opinion.

    wanana Sounds good. Keep going mate. I'll try to have an eye on you too.

    Capt Surge Thanks man.

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

    On monday I'll have to write an exam in biology, so there's not much time to draw.
    Really need to focus on that one.

    Sry guys but I'll be back with 100% on tuesday

    Thanks for stopping by and your support.

    Hey, nice lines. You should probably spend more time learning gesture drawings. Learn the basic proportions and flow of the body then move onto the good stuff (muscles and stuff)

    (basically more full body stuff would be nice )

    telohs Thanks man. I'll go back to gesture drawing soon, but in my opinion it's easier to describe the gesture when you know which lines describe which "feature".

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

    Here's the updated as I said. The exam is finally over and went better than expected.
    It's from my life drawing class that takes place every monday for 2 hours.
    This isn't all of the stuff (to be honest, only the best) but still learned tons. Can't wait for next week.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Good mixture of studies, don't forget mixing in gesture with your anatomy, proportion is good but keep your character loose. Always spend some time working from imagination every now and then so you can put all your studies to use.

    Yeah, I guess that is true. but have you read Loomis successful figure drawing book? He suggests using a mannequin just for learning proportion and motion stuff, I think it's really good. But, of course, you might as well spend some days learning all the anatomy, guess it's nothing wrong with that. Just make sure to accompany it by lots of gestures later on

    Also. Nyan! You lack a lot of moe in your sketchbook(not to be taken seriously).

    *edit

    Welp guy above me said almost same thing. Oh well, nothing wrong with being spoon fed :3

    Ixallus Thanks dude. I'll try to do 50/50 studies/imagination.

    telohs Thanks. I'll try to look up the mannequin again. Sounds interesting and I can't remember what he described there.

    SophieW Thanks Sophie! ^.^

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

    Finished up the sketchbook page (looks kind of messy, but that's what sketchbook are made for, lol) and an WIP of an painting I need to paint for school. For now just the rough color scheme, but I think I go with that scheme.

    Ohhh, I just came home from "The Hobbit" - Jeesus, this movie was freaking good.
    I would have loved to stop the movie sometimes just to paint these awesome landscapes.
    They've done such a freaking good job on it.
    I need to rewatch it <.< Now!

    But enough about pure awesomness aka The Hobbit.
    Here's an acrylic speed painting I did today.

    Sorry for the lack of updates! D:

    But here's a bigger one now.
    And the good thing: I finally got holidays so I can draw a lot more. At least this was my plan.. ^_^
