    Seven Million Clouds~~ [Update - May 1]

    Hey there!

    My name is Christine, most people call me Marin or Ma, I'm 21 years old and have been drawing for the last couple of years. I've been lurking around here for the last.. um.. six years or so? Finally I have the courage to post my art (mainly studies) here in the sketchbook section and I hope you like it. I encountered severe problems visualizing all the ideas in my head, being extremely lazy and giving up very easily, so I hope this thread will push me forward and force me to draw more.
    You will see mostly studies I guess~ starting with Bridgman, Hogarth, Bammes and some photo studies. I promise drawing more from mind (so many problems Dx)

    So have fun everybody and leave some C&C if you want

    More studies and personal stuff in the next post.

    Yeah! Those are some real solid studies there, really accurate and proportional, I'm really eager to see what you produce after all this practice you've been doing. Keep it up!

    Brilliant studies,the amount you've done is mind boggling- the hands struck the most attention for me.

    Anyways, I have nothing to say other than I hope you keep up the level of effort you're putting in.

    Wow. I will pretty much echoe what everyone else has said: GREAT studies you've got here, really cannot wait to see how you cope with putting them into practice.

    Thanks guys I'm glad you like them, much appreciated!

    I'm sorry I have to disappoint you. I'm relatively good at drawing something I can see right in front of me (at least humans.. as long as they are not sitting right in front of me) but when it comes to drawing from mind, I pretty much suck. I will practice and post more mind-stuff soon.

    Until that, have some old and new paintings I did digitally.

    2008: Before I even started to study faces seriously... so many mistakes, urgh.

    Dit it with my Nintendo DS at my parents' house

    2010: Some Dead Snow movie studies. Really had fun with those

    Attachment 1046737

    Seeing my progress helps me to hang on and makes me sad at the same time because I could do so much more to improve much faster. *sigh*

    Dike, the goddess of justice. She is still a WIP. I got the reference for the pose from deviantart.

    Eeeh.. yeah '__'

    Attachment 1046740

    Maybe some of you know this already. It keeps popping up on 4chan every now and then.

    Attachment 1046743

    And more porn! This time two characters of a friend of mine.

    Attachment 1046744

    A few weeks ago I started studying faces more seriously. I now have two books I can learn from and tons of photographs. It's still hard to draw them from mind, but when I copy something at least I understand what I am drawing/painting and I feel it slowly gets better. I'm actually pretty proud of this one. But the skin texture looks so fake, haha. Reference taken from the Tush Magazine.

    Steps

    Attachment 1046746

    This head is from mind (well okay, it was a sketch in my sketchbook before) and I'm so happy that it looks better than my old crap.

    Attachment 1046747

    The blind pathfinder Jacob from "Ink", one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. I really adore his character and his "song of life". Still WIP.. his right arm and thumb bother me.

    Great start! Hope to see more of your figure studies! I like the hands, legs etc. If "giving up" could be transformed later into a "go on", it's only a pause, not a failure! Maybe you want to participate here:

    or in any of the upcoming spartan camps.

    You will see more, don't worry Thanks for the link, I will definitely take a look at it in the future.

    Have two studies for today. A movie study from The Fountain (which has so many great facial expressions to learn from) and some arm studies. I will do more of them as I want to break everything down into simple forms. So I start with coloring muscles and muscle groups and simplifying them later into shapes I can easily remember.

    I was so lazy, argh, damn you, Rune Factory! Other M is coming next week, we'll see how long it will keep me from drawing ´__`

    Studied some faces and did a movie study of 'Ink'. Rendering my linework is still so hard for me.
