    Some great work ... I especially love the line shading you do ... for example in the Line King drawing you did ... awesome!

    The anatomy studying is really helping, and you can really see it working, so keep it up.

    Love it ... keep it up!
    Take care
    Norris

    Martell.Joshua thanks man and you' re right about the ancles, but most of all for the enviros!

    Norris thank you for your time and words. Also, there's something smone told me about the lines i hadn't thought and probably is very right: doing the same lines, with the same pressure everywhere, don't make the drawing dynamic...

    MR.ACE thanks for your time! But tell me, which way do you mean about anatomy? The one with plasticines?

    Thank you all for your time and crit is always welcome and needed!

    Some update. Pencil on paper.

    Love the update, you have a great style.

    Back to the lines ... so you just do the same strength lines everywhere, but just more lines where you want it darker? Is that what your saying? Sorry, I really love the technique and want to have a go!

    Cheers
    Norris

    Norris thanks again! That' s a quick reply!

    It' s my pleasure to help when i can so, about the lines. Till now, i didn't practice any specific techinque for the lines really. I just always like drawing shapes with lines even when i am just bored on the uni (see sketch 1 below)... The one thing i really like to focuse on is not to touch one line another (2) but insteed, doing many lines very close which they always (nearly) converge. Also, it is very important from where you start the line, because the starting point will always be the most intent (3). I could describe the course of the line (hand) as an attack-sustain-release progression (4). On every step, you can see the pressure forced by hand. One more thing is about the movement you want, which specifies, on the most part, the course/ pressure of the lines you will make. Oh smthing i just remembered: I try to avoid crossing the lines (5) ecxept it's needed, but that's just what i like cause i think i mix two different styles which don't match. I think that's all , or the most important.
    Nevertheless, it started as a game for me and after that, i thought and made it an element. I also think that this lining can give you just a great effect. I don't think i use it good yet, or to be specific, i' m far from using it right...

    The other thing i wrote on my previous post is that with that kind of lines, many of my sketches tend not to be dynamic. That's because of the same lines on the overall drawing... Also, i am not sure about that, but a trusted person mentioned and said that i cannot have the same strenght on every line! So i keep that in mind.

    Hope i helped! And sorry for the bad English!

    Thats amazing, thank you very much! Your english is pretty dam good to be fair ... 100% better than my non existant greek! Ha ha ha.

    Thank you so much, I cant believe you took the time to do that for me. Thank you so much again, I shall practice some and post them in my sketchbook.

    Thank you again.
    Keep it up, I think your pics are dynamic ... but in your own stylised way.

    Take care and thank you so much again!

    Nice updates! Really dig how you're not afraid to draw a bunch of figures in one image, lots of confidence on your part. As for critiques, I think it'll be beneficial for you to do more studies of anatomy for now. Keep going!

    I gotta agree with cgaddict here--takes a lot of courage for me to include multiple figures in one image. You've got confidence, and that's friggin valuable.
    I like your style of sketching too, it's very charming and animated.
    Are you by chance a musician? I only hear or read about attack-sustain-release when I'm playing viola, haha. It's a really neat connection here.

    cgaddict and a la babsi thanks for the kind words. I don't understand through exactly why you mention the multiple figures as a sample of confidence. I' ve never really thought of that. When i am to make a "serious" sketch, then my confidence is not too high... But it' s a good thing you mentioned that cause i havent realised it.
    Oh and yes, i am into musiv so yes, the attack-sustain-release i thought is from that section.

    kingkostas thanks man, Να σαι καλά ρε! Αν και πραγματικά δεν καταλαβαίνω ότι κάνω πρόοδο...

    Some updates! Just started for fun with pencil and then decided to add color. So, i had some drawing inks and some other fabrick(!) colors and voila! Really tried not to fear the final result on the girl/ bee sketch... The left side is just messing around.
    I post a grayscale scan and the final colored one.

    corza334 thanks man!

    I Nide yes of course, it's not finished i just put the basic values. Thanks for your time man!

    kingkostas thanks man! Το σχέδιο το αντέγραψα (σιγά μην είχα σκεφτεί κάτι τέτοιο...) και στη συνέχεια προσέθεσα τους τόνους. Δεν έχει τελειώσει βέβαια. Αυτό με τον όγκο είναι η αλήθεια ότι δεν το καταλαβαίνω καλά ακόμη. Ίσως είναι και το σχέδιο τέτοιο που προσφέρεται για να φανεί ο όγκος. Να σαι καλά μαν!

    Norris thanks! Yes, it' s a lot of fun indeed and if it isn't i try to make fun out of it! Glad to see you here!

    Some anatomy updates i tried doing from my mind only, without seeing any book etc. Ink on paper. Oh, crit please and for the previous colored sketches! Hope you like it.

    Hi there Knut
    I must say you have a really nice sketchbook going on here. I like to see an artist develop a certain style, and you are definitely doing that. I enjoy looking at your cartoon faces alot, because the way you portray facial planes makes it easier for me to draw them.
    See you already helped one member with your thread, I think thats pretty awesome. I suppose I need to subscribe to see your developement.
    The last few are very nice as well, but I would like to see you paint more, not only draw. The nearest you came to (traditional) painting is in post #73 as far as I can see, but thats still rather drawing. Try using the knowledge you have of body planes to tackle them not in a line but in a form.

    Cheers,
    Janos

    Janos thank you for your time. It' s always good to hear about a certain style you are trying to develop. I' m trying to experiment with various drawing/ painting ways at the time (ink/ phtsop/ cartoon/ naturalistic/ etc) to see how it works. Also, you are right about painting. The truth is that many time i avoid painting cause i fear it a little bit. Got to learn some things and paint at the same time. Thanks again for your comments!

    Some more ink updates. Also, tell me if i have to post smaller thumbnails.

    very very nice!!!Also those from your mind seems quite accurate, and that shows that you can understand quickly.Great sketches and the "Link" with the red value placements shows great volume.
    Keep it up!!!

    Wow, this is cool, man! You never told me you're this good hehe

    I love how you use the strong straight lines in your drawings, and your shading style too! Those strong lines give dynamic to the drawing and the shading really emphasize the form. Great combination!

    Somehow I sense that your drawings right now are still more readable in grayscale. Keep experimenting and practicing in color, knut!

    Ivan Turcin i' m really into experimenting with materials and techniques at this time. I really enjoy it! Thanks man, it's goot to see you here.

    HunterKiller_ thanks and you are right, i really get off of "regular" practice road many times.

    kingkostas thanks man! Really good to see you here once again. Also thanks for the pm.

    BluezAce thanks for posting man. Those two things, lines and shading, are really something that worry me about giving a sketch what it needs. So i try to experiment with different ways of doing them and see which one fits me. Thanks again.

    I borrowed yesterday a friend's bamboo tablet so here's my first try on a grayscale sketch. It's not finished yet but tell me what you think.

    finally an update! nice tablet work, how does it feel painting with it? to me it's the same as pencil on paper. Watch out for his right shoulder, it should be a little bit bigger (I think). Will come back to see how it's going. Cheers!

    Wow Knut!

    I am very impressed with your style...it is very clean and charming at the same time, and shows an innate love of planes and form. Very unique.

    I'd like to see you integrate your approach into some more traditional studies of figure and perspective. Your proportions look well-controlled but rather stylized, and I'm not sure how good your grasp of more realistic anatomy/body forms is.

    Also, at some point it would be good to branch out into some more media besides ballpoint...particularly, you should get a tablet of your own and learn up on digital painting. However I'd put that as secondary to solidifying your basic drawing skills with some figure drawing and perspective.

    I really like that GEKKO study, more studies of mechanical items would seem like a good idea. Also perhaps some architecture? Or just environments in general?

    Keep it up man, post lots more stuff.
