    Thanks Jelle! I've sent you a pm.

    Here's some new stuff. I think I should finish the tutorial about muscle's i'm following quick. It helped me allot with understanding the torso. But now I'm a bit stuck with the anatomy of the legs.

    *are there problems again with the images? Can't see them...

    Sunday, I made some pirate ships! AAaaarrrgghh! Focussed some more on overlap and made some more clusters of characters. Like Jelle suggested. Maybe i'm gonna work some more on the characters next week.

    Tell me what you all think! Like to hear some feedback.

    Mitchoo, I think it looks pretty cool. It has a sense of fun about it. For improvement, I think some water trailing behind the foreground ship would give it more of a sense of movement. Right now it looks too stationary compared to the other ship. Also, I fixed two minor tangencies with the rope and mast. I labeled them here in blue. You could fix them in different ways, these are just two possibilities.

    Thanks both!

    Here's the link about the tutorial I am following: The structure of man

    Nice solutions Spivak, I will use them!

    Here's stuff I did today. I think I begin to understand using color better. Thanks to the peer project. I also started on Yoitisi Island tutorials on CA.

    Hey Mitchoo, great updates here. You're doing enough studying for 10 people. I think you are going to like Burne Hogarth's book. It definately will help you improve figure gesture and construction. You might like some of his others also. Dynamic Anatomy and Dynamic Hands (this one is awesome). I've got a picture here from Dynamic Anatomy showing nasal structure. You mentioned in our sketchgroup you were interested in drawing the nose better. This other one is from Michael Hampton's Figure Design and Invention.

    hey dude- lots of the studies here are looking great. To my eyes,it looks like you havent pinned down exactly what you want to draw in the long term as you seem to be crossing your studies over a lot- is there a particular type of subject or thing youd like to draw? consider it when you pick your studies :B

    good luck,

    Will

    Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.

    @FootstepsBeckon yeah you are right. I still don't know for sure what I want to learn. So I am still searching and try to learn as much as possible.

    Here's some new stuff. The shadow casting construction really confused me, gonna practice it some more.

    Stuff from today. The futuristic concept art is for a school project, did them quite quick (didn't want to put too much time in it). Need to learn more about making backgrounds, does anyone got some tips or a good tutorial/book etc.?

    dude ur studies hit every topic! im impressed. Time to make an illustratiion to display your current skills? Do it. im currently on the spheres excercises too! they mad round bro.

    regarding your heads, i think re visit the formulas used to construct them. it seems you have the 1/3's rule down . buttt your eyebrows are riding a little too low , giving your heads a 'looking down' look. as a result, ur compensating wit the other features.

    try starting the thirds rule from the Hairline, and not the top of the head, this usually corrects any proportion issues . i think.

    keep it up!

    Thanks both! I was a couple of days of, got to see some family with easter. But now I am back! Back to post everyday some new stuff, so I can push myself further! So I can get better before I get old

    "try starting the thirds rule from the Hairline, and not the top of the head, this usually corrects any proportion issues . i think." Yeah I just saw that Loomis uses that rule as well (if I understand it well)

    Did some more stuff on paper, but scanning cost too much drawing time :p.

    I don't like the sketchy lines in PS, need to look at some other settings or something, need to press really hard to get black lines with transfer on....

    Here's some stuff from today.

    @RBeek Thanks man!

    I am almost posting everything I make, everyday. It really helps me to keep on training. But sometimes it feels a bit like spamming
    Tomorrow I am gonna try to make some own poses, thinking that's important to do once in a while.

    More stuf!

    hey man, you are doing great. for illustrations i can give you one tip: if there is something 'wrong' about an illustration its always because of one of the following things:
    1the drawing ( the 2d shapes, including everything that has to do with perspective, anatomy etc... so very its very broad)
    2tones
    3colors(saturation, hue)
    4edges(hard,soft)

    i think you could use 2 brushes for example to get different edges. like when painting a cloud, i wouldnt use a hard edged brush.

    hope i helped a bit!

    The exercises that you post in this sketchbook are extremely helpful to me. I'm always needing ideas on how to use what I learn, and I love being able to look at someone else's figure and illustration practices and get inspiration.

    One quick question: what is the exercise with the colors/hue?

    Thanks Jelle! Sure helps, especially to check while drawing. Would be a nice post-it.

    Thanks Jorvaa, good to hear it helps someone besides me

    Here's stuff from today + some older prop designs. I think I really could improve a lot on rendering with my props. What do you all think?

    The figures are studies from a gnomon video workshop

    Hee RBeek, thanks! I prefer pencil above digital. It looks way more rich, but can't nail that (yet) with a wacom... Gonna do more anatomy next week!

    Finished the pirate ship drawing (I made the sketch 2 weeks ago). Wanted to finish it in 1 day, but maybe it got a bit too rushed. Maybe I should take more time for such a big drawing with so much going on.

    It looks really nice Mitchoo. Beautiful clean lines on the ships. I aspire to do lines more like you.

    I love how much you pack into each post. It's like the candy bins at the super market!
    I think your doing all the right things to get better. I would recommend some skull /face studies because your bodies are surpassing them in quality.
    I think my favorite are the vehicles in post 53, very cute
