    solid progress dude, keep it up. construction means when you see something in 3d, human or anything else - you can put it to paper by simplifying it into basic forms. the loomis one you posted is a pretty complex construction, the vilppu way I talked about just deals with building the body from cubes and cylinders, but really it's up to you. when you are drawing from life you can simplify to blocks that you can later draw on when creating from your head.

    ryanoir ha, this'll explain it ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanukkah

    tehmeh Hm, I haven't looked in to Vilppu's construction technique, but I'm really enjoying Loomis' construction. I suppose I should still look at Villpu's technique to see if I like it better or not though

    Here's some more progress on my brother. I was planning on doing the C.O.W. for this week, but my first idea ended up looking too humanoid and with me working on this digital and the fact that I don't have any other ideas for the topic I'm probably just going to skip this week.

    hey,
    By quick observation of your sketchbook I can tell you may want to try to paint and draw in more complex layers on whole image instead of focusing and polishing small parts. It is obvious on your latest knight image, where the head was called finished way before the rest of the body. You can easily lost the form that way. Just my 2 cents. Keep on progressing.

    yeah to what Jr is saying, block out the color and lighting first, before rendering out shit
    my friend adam paquette, drew this for me to show how my friend min yum paints. this seems to be useful to me and you also
    I draw with crayons!
    starting with a rough line work, then blocking out the colors with a texuture brush, then using soft brushes and finally cleaning up the edges/rendering out and adding details
    what you could have done was a rough looking illu for your brother, with color and lighting, and texture, with details and rendered out focals and it would look totally shpimpin.. your welcome *salutes*

    Jr.Molcak I've been told this before, I guess I should probably practice drawing as a whole. You're right though, I do focus on one thing and then move on to the next

    ryanoir that's kinda how I paint now, but without the whole texture brush thing

    werdnA thank you

    Fnished this, finally! and now I'm gonna send it to him and see how he likes it

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. The link you wanted is:
    http://www.scott-eaton.com/category/bodies-in-motion

    There are hundreds of photos arranged in slideshows which you can pause and do studies of. Looking at your sketchbook, I would recommend to do a bunch of gestures from them as I notice that many of your figures appear stiff. I found that when I used the Loomis manikin all my drawings were super stiff, so switched to Bridgman and photos and haven't looked back.

    Hope this helps!

    ryanoir thanks man

    Andrew Sonea Thank you very much for the website. Yeah, I've noticed that my poses are stiff too, actually the 3rd and 4th image on here show just how stiff my poses are. So, I'll be sure to practice drawing poses from there, thanks

    DRAWINGS!!!

    Dang, it feels like it's been a long time since I've updated even though it's just been two days

    It's just about impossible for me to draw at all on tuesdays and thursdays because I've got MMA practice so I'm not gonna be posting on those days most likely. Anyway, here's what I've drawn today.

    Not sure if I wanna go anywhere with this. I do enjoy how the pose turned out though

    ryanoir Thanks for all the support bud

    So I went on a 3 day vacation and was bein lazy and didn't draw at all. I did however meet a few artists on the coast and this one guy that owned an art store was really nice and cool, I enjoyed it

    EDIT:
    Which one of you dickholes told me to die in a ditch? xD

    Did a bit more rendering, I'm not gonna finish it though :/

    just try a simple pinup for the chow maybe? funner that way, you dun have to think about poses
    though i DONT support this, dynamic poses should always be the top priority! but not always for a character design hmm
    keep postin'
