    xerenity: Thanks, I will!

    Hunin: I appreciate your critique, that's what I'm looking for and it definitely helps to point out my weaknesses! You're absolutely right, I can see your point and I'll tackle it as soon as possible. Thanks

    Today's study and linework for tomorrow, gonna do some anatomy studies later on.
    No hair, no face...colors suck and contrast is totally not given. I need to work on that since this has happened before already.

    Hey, good job on the ass burning! I'd recommend drawing with shapes and not just with lines

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmiwGm32dXU

    Also check out force dynamics. It'll help with your figure drawing.

    bobmeatbag: The first study based on shapes and that portrait was supposed to be built up on the lines, so that I mix these techniques up to get some variation and different approaches.
    Thanks for the link, I'll take a look into that right now!

    Probably it's time to start creating stuff out of my imagination.

    Anyways, here's that portrait. Things are off, forgot to flip the canvas and it just burned into my eye, haha. However, it was fun to do this!

    Alright, stuff from yesterday and today.

    A couple of these sketches and figures are from the head - you'll easily figure out which of them.

    The armor study was rather quick so it's pretty bad. I definitely need to work harder.

    nice armor study!

    you should put a little more detail in those figures, it doesnt take much, but it will look way better and youll learn way more

    Sorry guys for being inactive. I've had the flue so I wasn't able to do anything at all.

    kidult: Thanks man, I will!

    Aragah:Do you mean the 60 sec poses or the other figures? Thank you!

    So here are some digitals from yesterday and today. I gave up on the first and second one due to the fact that it didn't want to work out. I'll do some anatomy studies now.

    Hey man, thanks for dropping by in my sb!
    You're up for a great start, just keep rocking. Loving the enthusiasm with the figures, I wish I was that productive!

    Kvenh: Thanks! You say I'm productive? Just look at your output, you're constantly posting great stuff - there's no comparison. I really honor your words, really.

    So here's another study, gonna do some anatomy studies now.

    -D_art- & Dazzamataz: Thank you very much, I will do!

    So here's a small update. Didn't do that much the last days, definitely have to work harder again. Shitty scan quality as always!

    Portrait study from today...I probably should punch myself for this, it's horrible, a shame to even post it. Nevertheless I'll keep on practicing and work hard.

    Some sketchbook pages. Damn, I should update more often and work harder...school is stealing a lot of time, but that's no valid excuse.

    Some of these studies are incredible. I would recommend you try to create a finished piece. Maybe enter one of the competitions on this site. Keep up the hard work.

    phoenicorn: Thank you very much. I guess you're right, I have to take it to the next level. Combining the studies with personal pieces (like in the Crimson Daggers[btw great work, guys!] Competitions) might be a good practice. But my anatomy sucks, I suck at almost everything, haha!

    So this is from today, concentrated on eyes.

    Hey man, youŽre a studying machine! love to see that massive posts, keep working like that. In the figure studies, maybe IŽd concentrate more in the body volumes first, more than the lines.

    Ricardo Robles: Thank you, you mean the basic contstruction, right? Yeah, I totally agree with you. I'll work on that.

    HerrleerzeichenS: Thanks a lot. I'm gonna apply for the HTW this year, maybe we'll see each other by the end of summer

    More studies. Shitty faces, for sure.

    nice studies, digital as well as pencil! I second Ricardo's suggestion, try learning the structure as well(that doesn't mean you have to stop what you are doing, just add it to you studies)and keep going with those anatomy and figure studies. no crits on the digital part, you are handling it nicely

    -D_art-, thank you very much. Your suggestions help a lot!

    So here are some studies. I struggled on the environment, they seem to be so hard to capture. But "If there's no struggle, there is no process"

    Portrait/Poop out of my head before going to bad, haha! Yeah, I noticed the wrong proportions and perspective on left side of her face, as well as the shiny skintone. But it was quite some fun to do this...gotta do some face studies tomorrow.

    Cool stuff man. When you're studying, try to think more about the structure of the thing you're drawing, and how it works in 3d space. I can see you're doing this more and more though, as there's a lot of improvement just since the top of this page. Keep it up!

    PieMonster, by structure you mean the basic construction of the object, right? I'll try to concentrate on that and adapt it to my work, thank you.

    A couple of studies and a digital doodle that I probably should have spent more time on to catch some details and sense. Though, I didn't want to stave it off.

    lovely updates recently. Showing hard work and thats what is important. One thing I would advise is to draw more from life. Working from books often "feels" more productive than it actually is. In my own experience at least I often learn more from working from life in terms of training my eyes and sensitivity to value

    good luck!

    Damn, and I thought I was working hard. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened your sketchbook and saw your output. Very motivating and it gives me something to think about and aspire to.

    I like how you draw many different things as well, I've been attempting to do this as well.

    Good job overall.

    ThomasM, thank you for your advice. I'll try to follow that, I'm just too lazy to actually do it. It's hard to draw from life, but when there is no struggle, there is no progress, right? Thanks!

    bish0p2004, I'm definitely not working hard enough. Though, I am preparing my entry for Game Design in Berlin which is due in June. I really appreciate your feedback.
    I hope to find away to increase my time/efficiency-ratio.

    So yeah, sketchbook crap. My lines still suck and today was a step-back, argh! I'll find my track again tomorrow!
