Discipline, thinking, basics, studies... WORK!!!!
Im not really new here, but, I was very inactive all time here in conceptart.org. Some days ago I was seeing some sketchbooks and I found this guy Algenpfleger. He's progress and hard work inspires me so much.
And here I am, trying to fix and learn from basics. And being inspired by this guy.
I've studied "illustration", and now im studying fine arts. And I have a blog. BUT! I know how to draw but I always have a feeling that there's something wrong on everything ill do. So I thought that there was a lack of hard working and basics. I found I have a big problem with "discipline" so I start the new thread here and write some lines, to feel more obligated to work.
My name's Joan, 21 years old, male, from Spain. (presenting as Algenpfleger does on his path to excellence). I really want to improve my drawing and painting (color) skills NOW! It will be a long journey (i know), some takes more time someone's take less, but, I just want to get "there" and leave that feeling.
Just asking for help, critiques and motivation.
I start with 60 poses from posemaniacs (60 sec). I think my worst enemy is not being able to see what Im doing bad.
PD: Sorry for the english, Ill try to get better on that area.

Se supone que estaba mirando las actualizacones de los sketchbooks y no se muy bien porque he llegado al tuyo si tu ultima entrada es de... septiembre del 2007 y estamos en 20010.
Yo también fui inspirado fuertemente por Algempfleger hace 1 año aproximadamente.
Desde entonces empecé a creer en que todo esto era posible con una buena disciplica y duro trabajo y sobre todo FÉ.
Nose que te habrá pasado todo este tiempo sin postear, pero si sigues por aquí mucho ANIMO que los sueños se cumples en los que no dejan de soñar.
Vaya...he tenido un lapsus...
Los post eran recientes...siento el despiste.
Pero creo que lo que quería transmitirte sigue siendo lo mismo.
Te recomiendo los videopodcast(en youtube los encontraras) y entrevistas de BOBBY CHIU, son verdaderas joyas.

Miketaylor, acabo de ver las entrevistas a Jason Selier y Tom Fluharty! Buff! Quanta inspiración se saca de sus palabras. Todo pasion por su arte! Si señor! Gracias de nuevo.
Some bone studies and a doodle of crocodile done this evening while being in the zoo. I don't know if Im doing it the right way, but, I just know I don't want this drawing energy disappear. Just take it serious!
The Barcelona's Zoo is so sad, you know all the animals are in small places, with these sad mode on their faces and no movement at all. I don't want even for my worst enemy. In the other side, they don't move too much so its a nice but sad place to draw.
Thanks for viewing!

Your doing a great job keeping at it, and your figure studies look pretty good. I find that when I am having a hard time to fall back to literally constructing what I am drawing in perspective. I don't think its a good way to draw all the time but when learning "how to see" I find it helpful, maybe it will help you too. After awhile you can draw more freely keeping in mind what you have learned. Try and find material from Glen Vilppu or Bridgeman for some examples. Good stuff!

fantasyartist, thanks for the advice! I'll try it for the next round.
OmertA, having fun is the most important in that business. We have to love what we do!! Thanks!
bpic, Im going to check it there's some books about Vilppu or Bridgeman on my country and buy one. I have just three books: Human Anatomy for Artists; Drawing the human head, Burne Hogarth and Successful Drawing, Andrew Loomis. So I need more art books right now!!! Thanks for the advise!
Ivan Turcin, thanks man!!
Thanks guys, you give me some potential motivation! For today, there's not much work as I wanted but.. That's 55 poses (60") and some head studies from Horgarth's book. Today I tried different aproaches at poses, with pen brush, pilot, pen.. Not very happy with the work done today. Anyway, 170 poses is a good number for three days.
I want to ask about some good books for starting. I have lots in PDF but I can't just print all them. And I really want to buy some ones. So If you could help me with that..
