    LastGen's Path of Improvement

    Hi,
    My name is Lukas, I'm 17 years old and I come from Germany.

    I want to become better at drawing and painting. Inspired by all the great artists around here.

    Portrait, I´m not sure whether it is quite good or not...

    I need some advise about references and topics from you guys, please!

    cool, stuff.
    That portrait is really cool. The blacks seem almost too back. There aren't many mid tones. the facial proportions seem a pinch off but I have similar issues there I think it just comes with time and effort.
    the water is really cool though.

    I like the foot studies.

    Hey JamesMcCauley, thank you very much!

    I see what you mean. The problem of the shadows of that portrait is that she has a really bright skin color and the flashes made her skin almost white.
    But drawing this portrait helped me a lot, it was hard to manage the proportions and finally...they´re not correct.

    Thanks again

    Excellent studies for a beginner, but Ryanoir is right to say what he said. Also, I would like for you to look up a guide on perspective.

    ryanoir_Yes, I bought Bridgeman´s Constructive Anatomy and a random anatomy book for art students. Thanks again!
    What do you mean when you say I should loose up? I guess you´re talking about specific body parts like hands and feet

    FightingSeraph_You´re right, perspective is an important thing I shouldn´t neglect. Are there any books you could recommend, too?

    Thanks!

    Wow, the picture of the back looks beautiful!
    I like this way of drawing the muscles.

    Dir auch viel Erfolg!

    Definitely dig all the studies you did here. Keep doing them, with also, of course, gestural drawings as some people here mentioned, and you'll be great.

    Keep it up and see you on your next update!

    I'm making mess here: Sketchbook .

    witcrack Thanks man, I much appreciate that! Loomis is great, I learned a lot about proportions although I still have issues on drawing the chin in those basic shapes. But I hope to fix that as soon as possible

    Of course I didn´t do nothing today, next step will be drawing the shapes of the eyes and/or shading the head. I also noticed that I improved in drawing circles This time without references, just what I learned so far from the book... 3/4 perspective is still hard for me.

    Really like your studies, the muscles in particular look fantastic. You definately appear to be on the right track. Looking forward to seeing more from you!

    Zink Thank you, I looked through your sketchbook and your drawings are beautiful! I hope to become at least as good as you are...

    Here are some sketches and studies again, no reference used as you can see in the 3/4 perspective - it still looks weird :/
    Well, I don´t know what´s wrong with my left hand...it´s too shaky so I stopped drawing for today, don´t know what´s wrong with it.

    heads looking good, loosening up meaning like dont be stiff when your drawing, feel free to draw howevers right, you can scribble if you want, fill pages of scribbles, its all good
    draw what you want and if you struggle on some anatomy get the books out, but its good to study and doodle around too!
    keep at it

    it's really nice to see that you are doing so many studies and anatomy too (those back muscles were really pretty). Anatomy studies bore me to death but everyone here is doing them and doing them well so I guess I need to start on some too hehe

    Maybe loosening your grip will help too and your hand will be less shaky/strained?

    I think you should look into some full body proportion as well. That latest gunman looks pretty awkward.

    good stuff LastGen. Repetitive and consistency in those studies is the key to getting better I love it-- especially the muscle studies. They're nicely rendered and detailed!

    Also.. thank you for dropping by my sketchbook!

    Great start mate! The studies are good and that portrait looks great. Was really lucky, worked for many years in the industry but in a completely different capacity. But was in the right place at the right time when they needed some design work. So for the past two years I've been lucky enough to learn as I'm working. Keep up the good work!
