    Thank you very much guys!
    My complete guide to drawing from life arrived just 30 minutes ago and I'll work on that for some hours today.

    Got drawing ink and a 2mm and a 4mm brush plus I've had an old pen and old ink, which is a difference to drawing ink but I think it's good for the backgrounds, I'll give it a try.

    Greetings and best regards,

    The original thing of QuickClawSamurai and my anatomy processing thread.
    Some bridgman studies. A joker face done quick in 5 minutes with pencil and ink (brush and quill pen).

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
    Today I think I've done the greatest deal in my life:
    I bought (YES, I AM SERIOUS) 15 (fifteen!!) Rotring Isograph/RapidographISO's. On ebay. With additionally 13 new tips in different sizes.

    It was two auctions, one Rapidograph set of three pens (.25, .50, .70) and a collection of 12 pens and 13 tips plus two capillar cartridges, there are 3 x .35, 2x.18 etc.

    The thing is, all of them work (the seller guaranteed that) and both auctions are from one seller.
    The BEST THING about this is the price.

    The 12 pens, 13 tips etc. cost (please get into your bed before you read this or otherwise something collapses ^^) ...3,08 € what are about 4$ !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The set of three RapidographISO costs 1 euro (ONE!!), that's somewhere about 1,30$ I think.

    Guys, I love ebay so much!
    More (pictures for evidence) when they arrived!

    All in good condition, but in the wrong category, shit happens. But not for me this day!
    I AM THE LORD OF THE PENS, woooooooot!


    ps: sorry guys I'm so happy right now!! I am not hyperactive, but hey - with shipping about 10 bucks versus 15x20 bucks only for the pens without new (!) pen tips etc.

    Duuuude. You're real lucky. Let's see some more super-cool ink stuff! Here's a chart with the proportions I learned in my figure drawing class.

    It's not super accurate, the 1/3 divisions should be smaller, but you get the idea. Keep these measurements in mind when drawing heads. Cool stuff, keep it up!

    I did a photo study of the last album cover of one of my favourite bands - Alexisonfire. Took about 30 minutes.

    Tasser my main man, the bird is a good study but it looks totally flat because it has no tone variation on it pay attention to tonal values, try first to work on Black and white you can do it by converting the whole photo to black and white/grayscale and that way you don't have to think about color which can be very distracting.

    Later alligator.

    Nice digi painting!
    As Danny already suggested, I would advise you to start by doing some mochromatic paintings, just to get the feel of volume and shape.

    Thanks for your posts guys. I just had a little image for observation, did it now in BW and I have done the shades by imagination.

    Some head construction studies and a fast head drawn in photoshop just to nail the studies. Haven't nailed them to 100% but I think to about 80. I feel a little more secure with the head shapes and proportions now. Now I know: the head is wide about 5 eyes and high about 7 eye-widths ;-) Thanks vertical, I just tried some stuff. The bridgman stuff didn't help me very much with the heads but I'm so lucky I've an internet access :-)

    The circle painting was just a try to get some ink on the paper. I definitely need more practice and I know the head is distorted, sorry for that, just ignore that thing. Hihi.

    Have a nice day guys!

    After talking with you a bit about good environment books, I realized I had forgotten to mention a landscape book that I absolutely swear by.

    http://www.amazon.com/American-Subli.../dp/0691115567

    You won't find a single digital image in here. These are all the classic American Sublime landscape painters. Everyone of the painters in here is amazing, but in my opinion, none of them can hold a stick to Frederick Edwin Church. When you see his painting "Cotapaxi" printed high res, your outlook on landscapes and environments will change forever. This book brought me a long way.
