    Drawing And Painting From Scratch

    hi guys my name is esraa mohmed i finished college and im in a bad need for studying so i'm trying to start training to improve my drawing and painting


    i started working from vilppu's books and videos as much as i can find, so the problem is he is not there to instruct me as i live in a far away country and i can't reach him.
    im going to start with "DRAWING MANUAL BASIC FIGHRE DRAWING" chapter one (gesture) which im having difficulties applying it but im trying to stick to the "tools" of 2min drawing figure, and thats for today
    criticizes and comments are welcomed..... :):)

    you've got some pretty good gesture, keep at it. Id recommend you use some charcoal, and also to make some more completed drawings

    painting time :)

    hi im still working hard with vilppu i'll update it soon.
    In fact im totaly crazy about painting, i actually started working with a really good instructor but only for my last year at college, so i didn't have the time to study the practical side of color theory ,values and techniques (i ony studied them theoretically) so i can't figure out what to paint and the things that i should avoid .
    here i hope i have chosen right , i wanted a simple form its size is about 30x25, still are lots of mistakes in edges and values, it took me 3 days (im so slow compared to the final result)tha last one im sill working in it. anyways, if anyone has any advice for me whether i should choose flowers, landscape or whatever or i should paint different things and i will be better by practicing!!

    ps we don't have here any studios or painting courses im searching for a good instructor to teach me.

    "combining spheres and boxes"

    Hi,
    I really had fun playing with forms, i know it seems simple but like what Vilppu says, "the simplicity of its look is deceptive". Actually, I'm in a bad need to his advise.
    Anyway "combining spheres and boxes" i will spend more time in this chapter so in the first part i try to imagine drawing spheres over boxes in a steps. Its important to feel the form underneath in order to draw it >

    First attempt..I make bend and twist with overlapping form to create feeling of volume >>
