Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
The right distance between easel and body is arm length.
Graphite pencils 2B, 4B, 6B, and ebony are good on cold press paper that has surface texture.
Great, now i have an idea of where exactly i must pratice i order for me to be great the amount of consistancy is amazing keep up the practice
Thanks for comment.
I began to do the round two of human anatomy study. This time I draw on bigger canvas on easel like a real painters.
I put two A4 papers on canvas and draw on it to get rid of used papers.

Bye bye M$!
Absurd, retarded license permit from the company. What users get from M$ is being trashed once the service term expired.
Haha, what a great way of going business. I'm free from such stupid obligation because I'm a full-time Linux user.

I do sketches on paper when I feel to draw or break from computer work. I see posting each piece is time waste. Few pieces a month will be alright.
I created new writing language recently. xD
Inspired by one alien spices, proudly presented 'Ongle - Bi-directional symmetric phonetic alphabets'
I based on Hangul - Modern Korean Alphabet created by the Great King Sejong - add features that missed all languages I've known: Bi-directional read and write, independent of any cultures, flexible to be extended.
To know the behind story of its development, check this here.
Alphabets are one aspect of human artistic workmanship.
I'll patch a layer of clay after it's all dried, then paint two colors for finish.
The first trial was failed which I used a wire and paper for the frame. It was 2nd trial of building a penguin dull. This time I cut off top of a small empty plastic bottle, then secured on the wooden piece by a screw. I spent good hours yesterday. The height of the model is 13 cm.
I used three bags of paper clay - 330 KRW each (about 30 cents).
- water : soften the paper clay
- coarse sandpaper : smooth the surface
- a screw
- philips screw driver,

I learned that to build a good-looking sculpture it needs many photos unless I know exact shape in 3D.
Penguin's side face is close to a circle. I gonna fix the face. And then I'll paint with three colors: black, grey, pink for Debian logo.
Fixed the head. It will be the final.
i like the work on languages, although isnt what youve created English with each letter changed? you could decode it be measuring the relative frequency of lette occurances; E is used most in english so youd start there.
it looks really cool though.
have you heard of Marain?

Thanks for stopping by. Your 3D works always is impressive.
I sent a pm about behind story about the writing language.
Debian Tux finally!
I started in cold turkey few days ago. I think I spent about thirty some hours to make this one.
The water paint didn't turn out good at all. I bought black and white colors. A 17ml tube is little over a dollar which seems very expensive.
I destroyed a marker to paint the Debian logo because it was the exact pink color I was looking for. I just wanted to finish this sculpture today.
When I'll build a clay model, I'll definitely use real earth clay or quality one. The paper clay for kids aren't gave me few troubles.

Made sketches for future reference from March of the Penguins (2005).
My multipurpose helmet building.
It will have scale shell structure like the Dragon Skin.
The technology actually had been used in ancient Korea at least 1,000 years ago.
Making basic template using package box and A4 printing paper.
I measured my head size and face dimensions. It fits perfect to my head.
Built side and rear wall.
Worked on the side and chin guard.
The cardboard helmet is done. It fits on my head.
I made three shots with my bike helmet. Look at the size difference.
I would master my Canon digital camera after few hundreds more shots. Taking a picture as the eyes see is my goal.
Tripod, mirror lockup with self timer.
I draw from time to time. I'm in phase two of face study.
Below drawings are between last and this month.

The rest four images
I bought three books from Amazon.com today. Hopefully it will get delivered by middle of January, 2013.
Framed Ink: Drawing and Composition for Visual Storytellers
Marcos Mateu-Mestre, Jeffrey Katzenberg
The Art of Animal Drawing: Construction, Action Analysis, Caricature (Dover Art Instruction)
I'm planning to draw one or two pages per day.
Creative Illustration by Andrew Loomis is truly a master piece for serious artist. Amazon.com sells it. When I got it, I couldn't believe it. How the company publishes the book such price. The book is big, contains hundreds drawings and illustrations with Loomis friendly explanations. Beautiful color paintings are added bonus.
I started reading Figure Drawing For All It's Worth by Andrew Loomis again to horn my skills.
It recommends Perspective Made Easy by Ernest R. Norling. Luckily I have it so I've been studying the book almost every day. I definitely recommend it for understanding perspective and basic shapes. End of each chapter has problems for the reader to apply the concepts or technique covered in the chapter. I try to finish the problems as much as I can. All imagination drawings are my answers to the problems.
Imagination - Street
Street facing downhill
Street sketch - uphill
The building at the intersection of above street sketch
Buildings outside of the window, looking down.
My chair and table with stuff in the room.
Imagination: figures in perspective
Imagination - two cabins, each roof has opposite vanishing point (VP).
replication of the book drawing
Imagination: one-point and two-point perspective of a room with a window at end of the wall
I became a fan of time-lapse photograph.
Tools I use: GIMP, ImageMagick, ffmpeg
convert -verbose $f -crop 826x1115+598+94 -resize 580x780 $ofile
A script to create a MP4 video file using ffmpeg
if [ $# -ne 2 ]
echo "Usage: `basename $0` fps outfile.mp4"
echo "fps format is 1/seconds, i.e. 1/0.05"
# 1/0.05 is 20fps
cat *.jpg | ffmpeg -f image2pipe -s 1280x720 -r $fps -vcodec mjpeg -i - -vcodec
Camera model : Canon EOS 1000D(REBEL XS)

Flash used : No
Focal length : 25.0mm (35mm equivalent: 40mm)
Exposure time: 0.167 s (1/6)

Da-da-dak. It's lunch time.
Mountain pigeon couple
The tree of birds
Birds say "Let's share food. Okay?"
Nap time. This is how we live. ^^
My life sucks.
What are you looking at?
You know what I got tired of wood these bones. I miss the good old days...
Grr! Pass me before you use the toilet.
Animal friends where I live: house dogs, street cats, seasonal birds, local birds.
I felt I had been corrupted by digital photography. Hmm. I'll upload my plain drawings next time.

Hi. Thanks for the sketchbook visit. Great to see you studying hard. You are definitely following the right path with the Loomis studies. You should use your photos as references for some studies too (I like the birds and cats btw). My suggestion would be to do more sketching from real life.
All perspective drawings that have straight lines and marks are replication of figures on Perspective Made Easy by Ernest R. Norling.
All 43 gestures are from imagination.
I would draw gestures using modified version of Loomis' skeleton. Pelvis part becomes a box, upper torso also is replaced as a bigger box.

All the 3D models are done by Blender 2.69 in Debian Wheezy.
They are exact copy of models on Blender 3D, Noob to Pro.
Quickie Model, p86
Imporving Your House, p99
Modeling a Simple Person, p106
Putting Hat on Person, p122
Multiple Materials Per Object, p133
Image Textures, p137
A Simple Wood Texture, p140
Mountains Out of Molehills, p152
Modeling a volcano, p158-p165
Light a Silver Goblet p218-222
I duplicated two goblets and changed position and color.
Simple Vehicle – A military jeep with a rocket launcher, p223-p260
Pipe joints, p299 – 302
The following models are on Blender 3D Design Course, Neal Hirsig.
I definitely recommend Neal Hirsig's tutorials for Blender 2.6x users. The UI is almost identical to version 2.69.
Yellow submarine, 145pages
My 1st 3D animation.
Castle Modeling p1-96
Castle Texturing p1-59
