    Hey dude nice progress working hard thats good!
    There are ink pens special for artists they come in 0.5 and larger I think there might be 0.2 too just ask in any art store they will help you out.
    The apple study is decent keep those life studies man and you will become better fast.

    New sketch which I did when I was sitting at McDonalds and it rained and rained and rained so hard. I'm going to add some photos of the rain maybe in the morning. It's 3:25 in the night here and I definitely need to sleep

    The sketch is about what I learned yesterday, I tried to get a dynamic result and it's not perfect, not even near to it. But I'm happy that I've got to know a little bit more about figure drawing since yesterday. Let's see how it looks like in a couple of weeks.

    Greetings,
    Flo

    If anyone needs it, here are 3 of my actions for Photoshop.

    F6:
    Flip canvas horizontally - good to be able to jugde your actual canvas. Flip the canvas when you are drawing a portrait or something, believe me sometimes you wonder why you didn't see the failures, you're after a few weeks using this a lot more able to judge your proportions etc.

    F10:
    opens the canvas size window with automatically width 800px, press okay and then theres the save menu. I use it for most of my digital paintings etc. which I load up here. I'm still trying to get into the "save for web..." menu but there it wants a fixed file name, does anybody know how to fix that?

    F11:
    adds a new gray filled layer. good when you're doing posemaniacs and so on. I love that feature just for quick sketches etc.

    Have fun, write me, send me better actions or links to threads which handled that before maybe, haven't found good ones.

    --------------------------
    How to install it:
    Unpack anywhere you want, go to Photoshop, Actions (F9) click on the top right knob, in that dropdown menu there must be something like "load actions..."

    Have fun!

    --------------------------

    Had no ref for the profile and the mage, they're made in the train.
    The Elvis-lookalike is some months old and was in my homework-book from school. Man, that lesson was so damn boooring. Hihi
    Those babed are done today with refs. Hope you like that stuff.

    I know the mage and the profile are really bad at all but I take this serious, so I upload everything, doesn't matter if it's good or not.

    Greets,
    Flo

    Okay guys, a ton of anatomy is coming soon, starting in a few days. I've just ordered Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life and it should be here in 3 or 4 days, so I can get it with me everywhere I go :-)

    Did a random sketch and tried to figure something cool out. I think the idea is good but it needs more details and concept.

    So far,
    more stuff coming soon.

    Observed, about 30 minutes. I feel like I'm getting more control with the tablet and PS.

    Thank you QuickClawSamurai!
    I'm just searching for good blogs about art, I wanna get serious with ink and watercolour. Different techniques, different equipment, different artists. I totally recommend to search for stuff of John Baizley or Alphonse Maria Mucha.
    I do love their stuff so much!

    Your passion shine through your thread, good studies try to keep your focus on the foundation as much as possible it's very important.
    keep it going bro keep it going....

    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.

    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.

    Name:  Untitled-1.jpg

    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.

    the bird picture is great! Nice colour work on there. So what are these pens all about? are they like magic markers or something? have you done much work with them yet?

    Hey 8bit!

    Thank you man, I'll get better and better and that's so much fun and worth the hours spent for the research for good books, good studies, good references etc.

    These pens are just filled with drawing ink, normally they're used for technical drawings in architecture etc. BUT: a lot of comic artists use them, and the pens are available since somewhere in the fifties I think by rotring. I haven't got them now but If I have a little luck they'll arrive here today. If so, you will see new work done with them today or tomorrow. The drawing ink is a difference to normal writing ink, because the drawing ink has like 100 percent opacity and an exact line width.

    This is an architecture drawing: HERE
    Here is a drawing with it: HERE

    Greets,
    Flo
