The thumbnail sketches look great.
As for human heads, if you haven't already, you should get a hold of the Loomis head book. The features is this last head look okay, maybe the nose is a bit too big. But you should try to get some more color variation into the skin, and not just a darker color of the same hue. Maybe try to do some photostudies of portraits and really study the colors. Keep it up
Here's my update for today. Some eyes again, 2 sketches of dark age alike cities and a speed sketch in two colour types with a tree brush made to show my sister how all those things work. She was speechless. Like I was, when I saw what you can do with a computer and a tablet some years ago.
i agree with my previous speaker - i really digg that you are working on the basic stuff - and dont worry about speed - focus on getting things right this will spare you a lot of time in the long run - i know that it can be really tedious ^^ good drawings are not just a matter of skill but also of patience
i once have been to pride to work on the seemingly easy basics - never be like that i also like the bridgman stuff - want to see more of it !
I rly like the brush style of the environments, great work! I also caught that Republic Commando sketch in there as well, very nice. I wish they would've continued that series... the books are still going though I believe.
Hi guys and thanks for your comments. I will do anatomy, beginning in the next few days. But now I am thinking about which book to buy. I know that there are ebooks for free but the quality isn't that good AND it's pretty incommodious. And of course the real book can be in my backpack when I'm sitting in the train or bus or whatever.
I'm thinking about
Bridgman's "Life drawing"(6 euros), "The complete guide to drawing from life" (13 euros) and
Stephen Roger Peck's "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" (15 euros).
Which one do you recommend most? I heard, that the Atlas is pretty compfortable for anatomy-beginners and so on. But for about 20 bucks I would be able to buy Brigdman's books for Faces and Heads, thousand Hands and the Human machine.
I really don't know which I should choose. It can be written in english, of course. That means that I don't need a german book.
Tell me what's the best I can actually do with about 20 bucks for getting some resources.
In the right time I'm going to take some photos from my girl or my sister, friends and so on. Just arms, hands, legs, etc., no private stuff, of course. Haha.
I would definitely recommend anything on anatomy by Andrew Loomis if you can find it. They're a bit rare, but on the occasion one does stumble upon a copy or perhaps an online pdf of it, I highly suggest it.
hey man good effort, open up loomis's drawing the head and hands, it really helped me to understand the structure of the head and features, and I progressed tons by copying the heads from that book, I highly recommend it.
Try grabbing a pencil and drawing some basic shapes from real life like cube and sphere, cone, the mouse doing as many of those as possible will really help you with values.
