Hello awesome art people!
I'm Tim, 19 years old, I live in Belgium and I want to get good at drawing and painting stuff! I'm total crap at it right now and I'd love to change that.
I always wanted to be able to draw, but I only started to take this real seriously since 2 months or so.
There are great artists here who are a huge inspiration to me. They motivate me to start this and get better at what I love to do. I'll start out with some stuff I did this week, mainly studies and some things from imagination.
Thanks for visiting,
Some studies from life and photo
And finally some crap from imagination:

I got very busy with school last week.. :/
Here are some poop drawings anyways!
Some digital hands I did, left one is from ref, the right from imagination
Some master study i started but didn't finish :/
These are from life, first one done very quickly as you may notice
Some more photos studies,.. Aaah should practice more arms!
And a fail page from imagination!
Thank you for visiting and happy happy holidays everyone!
Hey man, good to see ur still going at it strong.
Looks to me ur arms are not all so bad, but the faces need some serious work.
Try some loomis and start at the basics.. u gotta face fact in faces U gotta start at the first step and building up the skull and stuff before u start doing photo studies or stuff from mind. U apply knowledge that u dont have, which will frustrate u in the result and might lead to demotivation when things are not happening the way you want.
So it might be hard to pick up a loomis book and draw the face the way he teaches u to.
But learning the basics and methods to create a convincing face will help you so much!
U kinda have to!
Anyway, keep drawing and studying,, and most of all having fun while doing so!
you painted those noses from imagination? thats incredible work man I'm very impressed. I started my "journey" about 9 months ago and I still don't think I could paint like that from imagination. I like the studies you have above. If you want to really improve then don't just draw out from a boook/image. Look at the refs and think "what about the line-work here do I like?". The linework for the torso/arms is very interesting so try and translate some of the interesting aspects into things like th portrait above them.
Include a large variation in contrast and line width. Broken lines, Hard and soft edges for example.
You are doing great so just keep it up and remember to constantly ask yourself questions!
Thanks a lot for the replies!!
RBeek Thanks for the advice man. Get ready for some loomis stuff shortly!
ThomasM Thanks for your comment man! I sometimes forget asking myself questions.. More like most of the time it's just brainless drawing! Aaah i need to concentrate more! Thanks!
Soooo Hello! It's been a long while since my last update. I had examinations and schoolassignment which were a hell, but theyre over now and now I have more time for drawing (and updating)!
I scanned the sheets of paper that were still laying around here. There is a lot of crap in there, I'm aware.. But I would feel guilty not posting the bigest crap of them all also. I hope there is some improvement... Anyways here you are!! There's enough crap drawings for everyone!!
These are some really quick hands
Some longer hand studies
Imagination stuff.. This all really sucks.. :s
Some fail selfportraits...
A bird photo study:
head photo studies!!
(sorry for the dump)

hey timdegro, you studies are good and you are placing your lines good.
I see you are trying to make some drawings from your imagination, well I shouldn't do that yet, I agree completely with Rbeek that it is to difficult if you just started with drawing. But you are studying good so soon you will be able make some drawings from your imagination.
btw I'm from Belgium too
Good work going on here in the studies. They'll improve your imagination work no end. Looking forward to seeing more! You're on the right track, just keep hitting the references, and finish the master studies.
Great last post - there is a lot of good work in there. My main crit for you would be that you are drawing (as many people do when they are relatively new to portraiture) the eyes a little too large. Remember they should generally be 1/5th of the width of the head, including ears, with one eye's width between them. If you draw them too big it gives a slightly cartoonish element to the portrait which is hard to escape. Keep on doing what you're doing!
It's been waaaaaay to long
But guess what! School over + no re-exams = time for drawing!
deadlyhamster Thanks man! About the imagination thing, im gonna try and do them anyways, cause one has to start doing those sometime. If i'm going to delay it more and more it will stay sucky i think.
Naidy Thanks! Well, here's more!
RBeek Right on man!
ThomasM Thanks for pointing that out! I need to think more while i'm drawing! Aaaah.
Here's some stufffff. Crap as always!
One thingy from imagination:
Studiessss!!!! Been focussing a lot on arms and hands the last few days..
Some more gestural stuff
This study took waaaay to long. Like 2.5 hours, last hour was more pushing pixels around than anything else..
Some more worthless crap D:
you didn't stopped working I see. You did some good studies and some construtive ones too so that's a verry good thing. Yeah summer has begon for me too so I will draw as much as I can too.
Your studies and ref based drawings are quite good!
You do love arms, right?
I really like the bird painting, skechy but the light is nicely rendered.
Keep up the good work!

Hey, great work in here, your knowledge of form, structure, proportion, all of it has improved LOTS since your first post, fantastic job!
