    Masterphil31 learns to draw :D - March 19th

    So I've been lurking around conceptart.org for a while now, but never really decided to start a sketchbook... but the day has come!

    I really need to improve my skills, so I'll try and update on regular basis, every single day if possible!
    I'm only going to post recent stuff, as I want to get critique from my present drawing abilites, and not the past ones (don't be sad, the past drawings mostly suck D: )
    Comments and critiques are very well welcomed, and I hope you will enjoy This sketchbook!

    Here are a few drawings from yesterday. I'm more into traditionnal art right now, mostly because I didn't yet get the hang of my wacom tablet and photoshop!
    The first two are posemaniac 30 second drawings, then a photo study, and finally a lip study.

    Awesome studies, keep it up and you'll become great in no time!
    i'm a beginner myself so I cannot offer any advanced critique but say; keep drawing!

    Thank you! And will do!
    I myself believe that's the only real way to get better at art: study and practice.

    Studies from today. Nothing was done from imagination, always used refs. I really need to get the basics.

    The picture quality isn't that great overall, but I'm doing my best!

    (By the way does anyone know how to add comments inbetween uploads?)

    New stuff!! (as usual)
    The first two poses were done from imagination, but once I realized I couldn't get the proportions straight, I did poses from drawings x).
    The portrait isn't from imagination either. I just didn't feel like finishing it though...

    Hi Phil, your pose maniacs stuff seems to help with your poses and form, I'm sure you've heard it but have you taken a look at loomis? Or something similar, his books help quite a lot to give you quite a lot of understanding about the specific shape of the head.

    They helped me quite a lot, and allowed me to get a lot more detail into the face giving it a bit more form.

    Hope that helps.
    Spongeali's sketchbook, please have a look and leave some feedback.

    Nice start Masterphil! I was going to say try do draw things together, like draw a whole body instead of a torso with an arm and a leg drawn on top of it or an outline of a face with a nose and a mouth and two eyes in it. That problem looks like it's gotten better on post 6 though. Also, I noticed some stuff from warren Louw's posing tutorial. I also noticed your imagination poses are all female. There was a thing in that tutorial that said if you master the female, drawing the male will be easy. I might be assuming too much, but if that's what you're trying to do i don't think it's a good idea. I think if you only focus on females, then when you draw guys they'll be girls with slightly more angly bits. You should probably devote equal study to both genders. Good luck learning!

    The key to getting better at anything is to do it a lot.

    Spongeali: I have downloaded all his books but haven't really started to study them yet. But I will soon . Thanks for the advice!

    Vertical: Yeah you're kind of right (and yeah that's from warrenlouw's stuff ) I've been mostly drawing the female figure, but I should really be trying to draw both... Thanks a bunch! I think that tomorrow I'll do some poses studies on the male form as well as the female.

    So here are a few more poses, studied from a bit of bridgman, and some of janaschi's sketches. I still can't draw hands nor feet though! They just don't look right so I erase them.

    Not much today. I just can't get enough of Janaschi's stuff!
    Everything was done from observation.

    Welcome to CA. One of the many things I've learned here in the forums is the usefulness of doing some 'quick sketch' studies. For like an hour, just spend 1-2 mins on a figure and sketch as much of the gesture as you can. It won't loo too great of a sketch for a minute, but the fast pace will train your eye to absorb more information much more quickly and to better see the figure as a whole. Good luck on your studies!

    vatteh: Thank you . I've been doing some of them and to be honest the sketches aren't great at all. xD But I'll continue because I'm sure that it helps a lot. Thanks for the advice!

    I haven't posted for 2 days! D: I can't believe it. Well I've been kind of busy with my bro coming back from the US.
    I haven't stopped drawing though!
    So here are some 60 second poses, which kind of suck, but nevermind that. Hand studies from bridgman and finally... A printed copy of Figure Drawing For All It's Worth. It' will be way better than studying from a computer screen. I'm sooooo excited!!!!!!

    I'm going to have to scan the sketches because of the bad quality photos. D: Sorry about that!
