    hey, nice progress in here!
    Maybe you wanna draw a little slower and see what happens. I noticed that looking at your portrait/head drawings. Maybe take out the speed and really observe the form, the contours and maybe find small spots that can make the drawing more interesting. Like where the hair crosses the contour of the head or smth. Hope you know what i mean^^ btw, the same can be applied to shading, no need rushing thru.
    cheers!

    Jatherip: I failed again, ahh w/e I'm tottaly feeling today. Actually this is second day in a row I've managed to go to bed at 1:30-2:00 and wake up at 6:00 AM which makes me happy. I want to train y self to sleep 4-5 hours a night takeing some naps when my body tells me I need it.

    I've noticed that when I get my self up when I want to are the days I really feel for. I gota learn to feel everyday!!!

    P Sage: Thanks I feel it got somewhere too but it's time to do lots of life drawing like I used to now!

    KingElvis: Thanks I need to learn to do a bit of both. Actually was takeing my time with a few yesterday.

    Here is my small update. Lots of doodles. I've never actually doodled this much before, since last time I've just been doodleing. Getting a little boreing actually. Think it's time to start doing some more serious studies!

    Going to international airport today to draw people, never done that before but something I've wanted to try.

    nice doodles, take your time though, those look like they were rushed, also try to shade by following the form of the object

    Nice stuff, your working much harder than I I also like the manga-esque feel of your work, might just be because I love anime though, keep working hard

    Hi i can see that you're doing an effort and you've improved a lot since the first pages and i think you could get even better results by studying structure it has truly helped me, and it will work with you too!!

    That's a good idea to take some of those pose and dress them up with your own concepts like you did here:

    You have snow in your area? Time to make snowman! Hope your flu will go away.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Hopefully you had fun drawing people at the airport.

    The faces though, man. Really brutal :embarrassed: ... sorry to say. (sorry if that sounds harsh)

    Big shapes first... then smaller stuff.

    "The amateur is tyrannized by detail." - Barnstone

    I guess what I mean by that (if it sounds cryptic) is to make sure the big shapes are right first.

    I try to think about it like this: If I get at least the shape and dimension of the head right, and the planes of the head and face right... it's going to look about 85 percent right, no matter how crappily I draw the face.

    At that point, I just have to do a good job of rendering the forms on the skull, and then (finally) go in and try to get the details right.

    I think you know what eyes and noses and mouths should look like; it's the whole that I'm talking about.

    Was going to update but my father has his camera in their bedroom and there still asleep so I guess ill hold off on that till tonight or something.

    Last few days have been good and I'm tottally in the groove again! For last 3 days I've gotten my self up after sleeping for 4 hours fairly easily. Ill crash later on in the day though but ill just need a quick nap to get my energy back Lots of drawing yay!

    P sage: Figured out this morning that I havea hard time drawing a sphere with contruction lines wraping around it and going though it. I'm guessing that's a large reason why alot of my stuff sucks. I need to work on STRUCTURE!!!

    Krato: I try to do that all the time, I just suck!

    Jatherip: Teheheh, we will see... I kind of fell out of my I love digital phase. I`m in I love drawing in my sektchbook phase.

    PigeonKill : Thanks! It`s actually gone the snow melted since it`s summer again 8)

    Hey, thanks for dropping by my SB!

    I think I'm already seeing improvement in your sketches! What I would like to see more of though is some really detailed complete drawings; you do a lot of quick studies, but I wanna see you do some drawings (or paintings) where you just sit with it, spend a hell of a lot of time on it, and just carry it through and make it as realistic as possible.

    I'm not saying that studies and quick sketches are bad...but for me, they're kind of like homework. They help me learn the basics (proportion, anatomy, etc), but the complete drawings are where you actually utilize knowledge that you pick up while doing your studies- they're a bit like exams if you will. And I think that you need both to really complete your knowledge (though I'm not a fan of tests IRL, especially essay ones)

    Anyways, keep up the good work!

    Kim_Bot: Thank you for stoping by =) I can feel a longer drawing comeing up. I only do those ever so often when I feel the inspiration. I do studies that are 140 min in length but I've never gone so far as like 8 hours. I should I should.

    P Sage: Yay structure drawings. Lets actaully learn to contruct the head first!!!!!!

    Adrian: Thanks Your right I havnt been doing consturction enough.

    Seems like such a long time since I've updated. I havnt been sleeping much though, had a day where I didnt sleep and the rest have been 3-4 hours of sleep a night. Ill nap during the day when I crash though. Afternoon naps are the best.

    I litterally passed out on the bus on the way home yesterday. I've always woken up when I nap on bus but this time I overslept my stop 10 min. Was interesting, I close my eyes and the world shuts off for 20 min I wake up and I'm 10 min past my stop. Was like on off switch.

    It's honestly not really much but I felt very proud with this gesture I did in class yesterday so I thought I would share it =)

    Thumbs up

    Good head/shape studies and really good figure drawing stuff. I'm still seeing the wonk-face stuff there; seems to be a disconnect between the head studies and the portrait studies.

    But one of these days, the light switch will click on and you'll have a big improvement there. Just keep studying it. Understanding is coming.

    A lot of good work there. A LOT of mileage in this last update. Thumbs up.

    You guys have quite a hard working sketch group going on! Brilliant to see! As you probably read in my sketchbook, I looked back on my drawings from 2006 and man... they suck.... HARD! I would say the key to improving is to draw a lot of course and keep drawing as you are... and think hard as in analyze your work. If you can always identify things you need to work on, you can always rely on yourself for crits and that'll mean you can keep developing.
    Anyway... some crits from me... I think some of your characters are a bit stiff. So you could try some gestural drawings. Dont think about details with this, try get motion into your pose. These might be little thumbnail squiggles but the key is giving the pose balance and movement so it looks natural and not stiff.

    Great update Dy.laneA, for your gestures to work on, this collection of handouts of Walt Stanchfield: "Gesture drawing for animation" (link to pdf!) really got me thinking about it. You should really give it a try .

    Dy.laneA: Lazy asshole!

    Worked on gestures yesterday. The library is a great place to draw, was just sitting at a table with a bunch of magazines drawing people waiting in line to sign some books out and drawing photos

    Wow. THAT many people play tennis at the library?? LOL.

    Cool. I think your life drawing is getting better... you're taking better care with faces, too.

    Draw draw draw! Damn Canadian and your frozen-off fingers

    Love the angles in your life drawings and portraits,
    love the character pages and poses,
    love that big red gesture.
    Would love to see something more finished from you, a portrait, a figure study, anything!
    Keep up the stellar work my friend!

    Oh, and track down that girl

    Peace
    Dan
