    This is what I was throwing around in my head for this week's badass CHOW: the Viking Berserker.

    After a bit of research, there's the more mythical were-bear interpretation of the berserker, some that claim that a berserker would kill a vicious predator (such as a bear) with their bare hands and wear the pelt and things in between. But on the whole, they were crazy warriors that would kill lots of people and would go into some sort of mental or drug-induced trance to do so.

    Enjoy!

    Well, good start mate and good that you have started a SB. About the last piece check the shoulders of the warrior and make the hip size little smaller so that the figure will look more realistic. You may want to grab an anatomy book since itll help you a lot.

    Keep up the good work and keep posting

    thanks for your comment in my sb, nice sketchbook looks good practicing i think you need some work on your traditional drawing ( start to do some anatomy study, and gestures those really helpful to me and you and everyone)

    try to get a loomis book that will help you for that

    keep it up and have fun

    Hullo there! Nice start you have, my favourate has to be the first post, his nose is nicely done.

    Like the berserker concept too! Only crit I can think of is it doesn't look like you did a basic structure plan of him first, it feels a bit odd to me. That said, I don't know what I'm talking about, so don't take my comment to heart if I'm wrong.

    Anyways, good stuff so far, I'm eager to see more so keep up the good work!

    Hee hee. Digital is not my forte.

    Seems that every time I try to draw a girl, she comes out quite melancholy. Gotta stop listening to Feist and Fever Ray while I draw

    Your pencil line quality is amazing! Kind of confused why you can't apply it digitally. Haha! Maybe you can spend some time figuring out the shape dynamics and opacity pressure for the brushes in photoshop. Find the feel that suites your drawing style.

    wow I love that first pencil sketch. Digital feels very different from pencil, obviously, so I don't find it strange at all that the two mediums look different.

    Thanks for you comment
    You have a good basic drawing skill, I think you can easily get used to digital painting.
    Just keep practicing, you will have a lot of fun, especially the colors ^-^

    Good work so far man. Your first drawing is pretty sick. I've been adjusting to digital painting to after using traditional mediums for so long, So I understand. It takes a little getting used to at first, but hang in there and keep practicing.

    I like the very first drawing (shading in particular). The face on the last girl is great, and the proportion is almost correct. Keep it up, you only learn drawing by drawing

    Okay, I'm splittin' this update into a couple posts. Prepare for a spastic explosion of figure drawing

    After this set, I was horrendously frustrated with how "contoury" I was being. My model then put me through hell with 10 second gestures which really helped free me up and to capture better proportions. That, and I was drawing on my moleskine, which is waaaay too small for a good, loose figure.

    Here we go:

    Okay, now I shall respond to comments before launching into the next wave of figures:

    devastacio thanks for the comment and crit! i do tend to do do wonky things when I'm drawing male shoulders and hips. I thought it looked odd.

    qlotzan thanks for the advice

    Naidy thanks for the crit! You're right on the money, I've been trying to draw my figures with no underlying structure. looks like I'm not there yet! Back to basics.

    krenx thank you! I'll definitely try what you suggest. It's been frustrating, not being able to figure out how to replicate traditional techniques. Digital always looks so....digital to me *eww*

    krysjez thanks for the complement, and also for understanding

    kai.ouyang Thanks! colors are scarryyyyyy

    TacoMeat Hey Thanks! And thanks for the encouragement, digital is just a foreign world to me T_T

    PuffyNose you got it!

    Sean McClain anatomy is a killer. In many ways. I'll keep practicing!

    alamed yep yep, use it or lose it! I'm definitely feeling a bit rusty. But trying to do my best!

    Now...for the sketchies.

    There are a few things happening here (besides a lot of proportion mistakes) --I isolated one half of the body to try and work out the proportions of each section (my model is incredibly long, thin and tall, difficult to draw when you're used to boobs and curves), then I worked with drawing the skeleton from the figure, surprisingly successful! I kind of think that way; there must be a logical understructure for my brain to figure out how it works. Then some crazy 10 second gestures, forcing me to be loose, which I went back in and abstracted.

    After that is a separate set of drawings from a different model, different build, ethnicity and style of pose. So hard to switch mindsets! Some more marker drawings, then a sort of "scribbly" gesture in colored pencil to express full figure. And ugh, perspective is difficult. I think I may have committed too fast.

    Jeez, I don't expect you to have read all of that. Thanks if you did

    enjoy
