    Random studies. It feels like drawing the head will be forever beyond my abilities.

    Painted this eagle from ref before work this morning.

    Also, I started reading through Drawing on the Right side of the Brain, but found it so overloaded with psychological walls of text that I lost interest pretty quickly. I did try some of the exercises, none of which illuminated the various psychological things the book suggested they would. Could be I'm just too stupid to grasp the basics.

    Not sure what to do next.

    Xeon - Thanks Xeon. I know I must be improving. It all just frustrates me.

    Anyway, I decided to start this master study. It's of Sargent, painted by the man himself. I never really understood the reason people do master copies, but just color picking from his pallete and seeing the way Sargent did his brush strokes in this piece is showing me a lot, especially about color. Its amazing me seeing the great color he used.

    Is this the right way to approach Master Studies, to see how they did their brushtrokes and color? Rather than just copying them for the sake of it?

    Quick sketch of the great Hayao Miyazaki. I think its a better result than what I've been getting with my recent pencil portraits. The thing that bugs me is that I can't see myself using many of the fundamentals that I've been studying. There's some head construction stuff I use in there, but most of the time I'm just winging it. Can't help myself, but it does come out better.

    That gesture post, and the couple of studies after it, are really great. Really solid, really stylish. On the heads - try to be a little more deliberate about the planes, especially the front and side plane. Your studies from post 271 have a few proportional issues (most notably, the bottom half of the face is often too long compared to the top half), but you've definitely got a sense of the plane changes. Compare that to your latest face - with the features shifted to the left, you should be seeing some of the right side of the head, but there's no sense of where that plane changes; it's just flat. Really try to sculpt it out. This video explains it pretty well.

    Revidescent - Thanks. As always, you've given me a lot to think about. Thanks for that video link as well, it really helped. I'll slow down a bit and really try to sculpt out my next few studies. Going to start reading that Force book too.


    I haven't had much time to draw, other than some gestures here and there. Been really busy with 3D work. I did this quickie though. Seen a lot of great artists getting some really nice results with the lasso tool for environments. This is the second one I've done like this.

    Ramin Afshari - Thanks for the advice. I'll get on it.

    Been working on some Frazetta studies. Man that guy was good. Zoomed in on one of his pics to learn from all his masterful pencil shading.

    Anyway, thought I better update this as its been a while. I've had less time for drawing lately. Think I've re-discovered my love for 3D and I just can't get enough of it again.

    First 3 are Frazetta studies. The head construction was just from imagination.

    a few studies that didn't go so well. Not sure how much longer I'll bother with this sketchbook. I'm not even sure if I want to pursue drawing and painting anymore - or even 3D art for that matter. I feel like I'm trying to learn a heap of different things in totally different areas and just getting nowhere with it. I'm learning on my own. It might work for some people, but I don't think I'm smart enough to grasp the concepts I'm trying to understand. I see other people's studies and how they learn from them, but I feel like I'm just going through the motions and going nowhere with my own.

    I dunno. I'll see how it goes.

    Are you enjoying doing the studies? Are you having fun? Are you drawing your own fun stuff (comics / stories) when you're not doing these technical studies?

    Good day!

    I don't do much of my own ideas. I don't really know how to approach them. I'd love to draw my own characters/ environments, but I don't know how to go from studies to that.

    That's what I'm doing now! I used to do studies all day and nothing besides that, but now I'm making a switch, and coming up with my own story and characters, and drawing them in illustrative poses / model sheets etc., and if there's something I dunno, I refer to anatomy books / websites, do a few studies, then applying the studies back onto my own project etc. It gets absorbed faster!

    Sounds like something I need to do more. I'll get on that. I'm just lost with the studies at the moment. I want to learn how to draw characters, creatures, robots, environments and everything else all at once, and it just overwhelms me. Thanks for helping me out with all this Xeon. I truly do appreciate it.


    Anyway, I got home from work, determined to get back into my 2d stuff. For some reason I couldn't get started. I just sat there for hours trying find excuses not to. Eventually I just ended up doing some studies. Will do more stuff tomorrow. Here's some:

    Stuff from today and last night. Starting to look at poses found in comic books to try and get more dynamic poses. Also realized I have more success with these when I'm more loose and scribbly. Some head drawings from imagination too.
