    age does not matter! These are really good sketches. Keep it up and pick up a pencil and draw everyday! You have great line quality.

    Age doesn't matter - It's dedication that matters!

    So far I think the sketches are really good. I like how you approach the subjects multiple times, sometimes just in outline, sometimes fully shaded and modeled. You seem to take your time to fully grasp what you are seeing and how you can best depict it on a flat surface. - That's a good attitude for drawing, one that many artists overlook because they are too impatient. (Me included, sadly)

    Keep on drawing!

    thank you Mazui, yogeshj25 and Caboodle, your kind words are really motivating me to go on

    unfortunately I had no time today to do my studies, I tried out my new watercolors I bought yesterday °-°

    maybe I can grab my pencil later, but for now I have to work on a collaboration... I am so slow when it comes to work on the computer D:

    I should do more anatomy, but couldn't manage my time right this weekend D:

    so here just a sketch of my girlfriend playing assassins creed xD
    some doodles I made while watching the Oscars (I wanted to draw some of those pretty dresses but I was way to slow xD)
    and the last thing is a collab, where the sketch was given. I made the line art and the colors, which was not easy for me, as I am not used to work with Sai... I loved OpenCanvas more D:

    1) composition studies from a book and a sketch of money °-°" (which is not very round xD)
    2-3) anatomy studies from a book
    4) some Bridgman studies

    I wish I had more time, I would try to start those 60 sec drawings again °-° last time I did, I was horrible at it.. the drawings were all too big or had a strange shape xD

    thank you tronrobot *-* that's really motivating me to work even more

    some more sketches I did today...
    some guy and chibis of some of my classmates xD" (in never was good in that chibi-stuff, also I never wanted to be xD)
    and the last one is a sketch with watercolors I did in/of a coffee shop
    I started with the left side only, but then my girlfriend suggested me to draw both pages
    the colors are still very chaotic but it was fun to draw ^^

    here is the attempt to draw a self portrait in sai, from last night... I was moving a lot, my nose was the whole time at the wrong place... xD I'll try this again when I don't have that much of caffeine in my blood
    rest are some studies from life, some sketches with pencil and some with watercolor (even if the paper is really no good for watercolor .. I am addicted D: )

    I had no Internet but now it's back >o<

    here are some studies from the last two days, still have to do some for today >.< (I'm so very tired)

    Those studies are from life, drawn with sai again.
    I failed at the shoe (don't know how to make a proper texture on those)
    I hate drawing shoes in general, so I think I will do some more shoe-sketches today DD:

    wow! those reflection studies are fantastic. I have never got the hang of that, that has just inspired me to work on it. really cool work you do with watercolor as well, looking forward to another post.

    thank you so much jbrown67 I never thought I could do such studies on the computer, I just tried it and it was a fun thing to do too

    ohhh I feel so lazy compared to some of you guys here >__<
    I just got some sketches today, studies again and some scribbles I made at a restaurant... I wanted to visit a life drawing class today, but unfortunately I was too late and the class was already full D:
    maybe I have more luck on Thursday °-°

    ok o_o I tried to do some more studies today...
    I think I will work through my bridgman book before I start anything else X_x
    Maybe I do some own work (or commissions I still have to do D every Saturday ... I'll see how motivated I'll be xD

    1) I started with a tree in sai, ref used of course, still looks strange (I don't have those shiny brushes which make everything look good xD)
    2) my hand... in sai... tried to do it in colors first but then my hand got tired and I finished it quickly in gray scale xD
    3-6) playing with alchemy °-° it sure is a fun program but I think I have to try it out some more... my thumbnails don't look good xD" (or I am just not creative enough to imagine something out of them <___<)
    7) a portrait I did out of my last alchemy experiment °-°
    8-11) bridgman studies
    12-13) started to do 60 sek again... aahhh it makes me nervous all the time DDD:

    ok attachment isn't working for me... <__< I've got this problem for some time now... it's nasty D:

    I like the colors! The bridgeman studies are nice, but make sure to apply what you see in his book to some imagination and life work. You might want to check out this and this instead of posemaniacs, they use real people and you can select animals or other things too.

    I love your watercolour and ink drawings! What kind of pen are you using?

    The digital paintings were so static at first, but they've improved so much. I really need to do some observational digital painting.

    Vertical thanks, you are right, I'll try to work more with the things I'm learning from the book, and thank you for the links I tried them today, the sites are great

    HAJiME thank you I usually use a pen called "edding 88 office liner F" because I like the dirty look with the non-waterproof pens... sometimes I use thin liners when I want to work clean and not so sketchy... but thinking of doing something "clean" makes me nervous and I end up doing nothing at all...
    I am not sure about my improvement with the digital stuff, I am still very stiff when it comes to work out clean pictures which look finished and pretty and everything... I think working without outlines makes it easier to make the pictures look not so static. I hope I will be able to do actual character design without outlines some time... D:

    today I have only a few gesture sketches with watercolor and a silly little picture of an elephant o_o

    looking good! apparently you're taking it seriously and studying every day.. if you keep this way you're gonna do some crazy awesome art in no time.. i gotta say i'm not on the track yet, sometimes i dont draw for a whole week, but you really inspired me to keep going (:

    good luck!

    NinoCencini thanks yes I try to draw everyday at least one-three pages, I had lost so much time with my lack of motivation and thinking that I am not good enough to draw, now I have to work harder to reach my goals °-°


    sadly, no studies today... it's been a chaotic day and I've been to a small "drink & draw" event in my town, where I only could manage to draw two pictures O_o" (I was hoping for drawing so much more D: but I was afraid to draw with those amazing artists around me D: )
    I can only post one picture, the other is in someone else's sketchbook
