Welcome back. Keep fighting with yourself and just draw!
Maybe when you feel like you are loosing the motivation to draw, just open this or this livestream channel and draw together with that dude, it boosts my motivation everytime
tomskie - Thanks, I'm trying to finish fun with a pencil before I move on to something else. vanaga - Thanks. every time I lose the motivation to draw, I just give up for a few weeks until I get in the mood to draw again, but looking at the links has really helped me stay motivated these past couple of days. twilightmoon777 - Thanks!
I looked through your sketchbook and it seems like your studies have helped you get a good understanding of the human body that shows in your drawings from imagination. I think it would be great if you went to figure drawing classes (if available to you) so you can apply those studies to real life.
Also keep going with the drawings from life. It would be nice to see more variety in your sketchbook.
Thanks for dropping by PerfectGet, I will definitely keep drawing from life, not sure if I'm ready for an actual figure drawing class though, maybe I'll go to one when I get a lot better at drawing from life.
More Observation Drawing, and I'm trying a different pencil grip.
Good progress here. One tip about the fun with a pencil book: Don't spent too much time on it. If you want to go through it, do it really quickly. It might me better to look into the Loomis book called successful drawing instead.
Thanks for stopping by Fiskepudding, I got bored of fun with a pencil so I won't be doing that for a while. I might take a look at successful drawing because I'm trying to work on the fundamentals, so thanks for the suggestion.
Value study and perspective study
Nice post. Gotta get those basics down. However, let's see some more observational stuff! You did a good job on those last two you posted. Keep em coming and don't be afraid to sign up for that figure drawing class if you can, I think you're ready. You've been ready ever since you decided to start drawing again, so go for it!
Nice studies. Sometimes though, the best way to improve is to forgo the simple stuff. Drawing boxes can only take you so far...jump head first into the "hard stuff" Try out Loomis' figure drawing and head drawing books. They are great, and they're a great way to learn.
I think perspective studies are the way to go. One of the big hurdles in learning I know (I still have tons of trouble) is objects in space, and giving form to objects. Looks like your recent studies are heading in the right direction. Just keep cranking them out. It may not even seem like it would help but just those every day objects you sketch every now and then can really help with the process. Keep em comin'
Psychobuddy - Thanks for the suggestions, I'll be doing some loomis stuff later today.
JFierce - Thanks, I hope I can keep cranking these studies out without getting bored and not drawing for a month.
Some stuff I forgot to post the other day. And a failed attempt at 3-point perspective.
