    Anaiira Needs Practice. :D

    I've sort of always grown up with art. I had a ton of art lessons as a kid, but I was mostly told to just go sit and put such and such stroke at such and such place. A lot of my background is in traditional media, mostly pencil/paper sketches. I'm sure some of the theory seeped into me somehow, but when drawing, I mostly go by intuition, and I feel like that's just not getting me anywhere.

    Anyway. Here I am now. I'm in first year of university, heading towards a bachelors in science and dreading it.

    I want to get (a lot) better at art.

    HOPEFULLY, I'll be able to post two pieces a week?

    /insert some old stuff and new stuff/

    Huh. Really? That's messed up. Oh well. I'll bother you often, so you can link over anytime you want. XD And I asked about the drafting stuff because I did it before (not professionally), and it looked familiar.
    Well... that was for a project. I choose that topic (architecture) to focus on urban things and objects. I never did those things and I also never worked with colors, before I went to CA.

    I've been (trying) to do 60s sketches at posemaniacs, because they have a program that switches the picture every 60s. I find that I can't capture the details. How are you doing that?
    Yeah, I use that, too. But I've made myself a little 60 second soundtrack in a playlist with other music. I count myself down, so I'm always about 50 to 80 seconds at one figure. The little Things I drew in was to remind myself of major muscles and bones. And you by yourself are the most critical person, I watched over your sketches and I think they are really good, just keep up practicing. Btw, great color pieces are in here. I'd be happy to here more from you, bro! =)

    That's brilliant! I always had this sense of unease with posemaniacs, because I was always thinking I'd run out of time any second.
    Yeah, I saw the changes since I'm doing it this way, just give that a try, very easy to organize (Audacity etc... KLICK ME!).

    I like the colour choices for the phone. Watch out for your perspective. The lines don't seem to converge properly...?
    I will, you're right. The rendering etc. was for school, I will work that more out in the net days and post it here. And now I'll do some sketches ;)

    Yours, Steffen

    I absolutely suck at keeping threads up. D:



    I do think I'm going to go find some panoramic pictures and practice drawing landscape.

    And people.

    And frigging mechanical items.

    TC121! I seriously have not drawn like this in forever. Or used skills that I have, but don't use???

    I'm retarded. Oh well.

    EDIT: In other news, I now have a Bridgman's book from the library. Practice time!

    But it's so convenient for uploading!
