    xinranliu: Thank you. Yeah I don't think anyone would think that. I'm really scared about all of this but I just need to suck it up.

    Velocity Kendall: The accent is very nice, I also love French accents haha.

    Using those boxes to describe the space in which your composition lives is a great idea. It gives you an ability to measure, because when you have sides and a top, you can measure against those quite easily... they don't move.

    Good luck in your studies.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.

    Wow, it is really a brave decision you are making here to be so open about it--good for you! I wish you the best of luck with your transition, already there is a huge improvement in your voice I can hear. By the time I see you at Sheridan I am sure you will be pro at it .

    Don't forget to keep up with the art too while doing this...can you not practice your voice and draw at the same time?

    wow you work really hard! great stuff... and I am very humbled but your openness about your whole gender confusion thing. I have always been very interested in why certain people change so rapidly psychologically, whether its their environment or the lack of certain emotional aspects. I don't think people are born with these "desires" but I'm sure your having a rough time either way. Hang in there buddy .

    ryanoir: Thank you, they are not much, but I still want to show them here. I won't be dressing as a girl for awhile. I hate the idea of a guy pretending to be a girl. Only reason I came out and done any of this is because I believe I can have the voice of a female if I work at it now. I always thought it was impossible.

    I don't know who I would date hah!

    p sage: Thank you they are very good studies to do.

    Andrew Sonea: Thank you, I hope my voice is a female voice by then. I began to strain my voice practicing so much though. I found out it's not like drawing, I can't do it for hours and hours a day. I'm not speaking a word for a few days to rest my voice. Then ill start again but only for an hour a day for a few weeks until my voice is stronger.

    So plenty of time for drawing

    Jeremy Swan: I think you misunderstand but I appreciate your support.

    Velocity Kendall: Thank you for the link. People with gender identity disorder "feel" like the opposite gender inside and it upsets them that they are not that gender.


    ***

    The shapes are all wrong in this study so I gave up on it, I rushed into details to fast.

    I hurt my voice practicing it to much so I'm resting it. So lots of time for art. Actually I felt unsure about giving up so much time anyways. I shouldn't be in such a rush.

    On the slacking angle:
    I don't have to have fun. There are many degrees of joy and fulfillment that I get from drawing and improving which I would never get out of a video game. There's things to achieve and too little time.
    I guess I'm a weirdo though, and this is probably just applicable to me. I'm not saying I'm somehow better, only different. It's about your own journey.

    So just do what you want man. You seem to be taking your own road and that's fantastic, good luck.

    Oh man youve never played GTAIV with the superman cheat on I guess. You can paint masterpieces of destruction. But I take your point.
    this is nice

    Hey mate, I've just caught up to date in your sketchbook. I really dig the dedication you have to art, especially considering the potentially stressful events you've been having in your life.

    You're a hard worker and I'm sure you'll be popular no matter what gender you are, I can imagine you'd make a pretty woman for sure.

    Anyways, art wise I have no crits, you're making good progress so just keep up the good work.
    Good luck with your sessions too, I wish you the very best in life.

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -

    Hi SenEnd. I've read the last pages, and two things got my attention. You said you are devoted to art, and that you are transitioning from male to female. But I don't see none of this reflected on your drawings. Just generic studies. Why don't you tell your history and feelings using your art? I think it will much better for you than just using words.

    Don't forget that your art is your way of expression. Use it to show the world what are your opinions, what you think, who you are. Don't be neutral. If you feel like a girl, express it. If you want to change, express it. If somebody bullies you because of that, express it. I think this is the main role of art.

    And good luck with the transition. You have my respect for your courage to assume who you really are.

    Eya, don't hurry to jump into colour!
    its cool to see you experiment with a full piece once in a while, but remember that construction is king.

    From my experience, by starting to work on this week's chow I've realized that I'll probably need a considerable amount of work before I'll be able to actually do it. I've done 2 weeks of pencils, yet it seems like I need to do 4 more months. at least.

    I say that because you are still drawing symbols instead of shadow shapes. you always draw the eyelids. observe life - you rarely get to see a clear definition like that. I know you want to show the full form of the nose by drawing a line through it, but this line doesn't exist in many lighting situations.



    Now this type of "symbolistic" drawing isn't wrong, it's just useful for a limited range of drawings. mainly form studies. Not to mention that it can still be badly drawn. In any case, shadow shapes are the main thing to tackle.

    But wait! "shadow shapes are tonal drawing, and I'm not ready for tone"/"someone has told me I need to focus on line art first"/"cartoony drawing has it's purposes!"/"Line drawing is flat" Yes, all of these are true to an extent, but you need to realize that all symbols or lines are based upon shadow shapes. Because everything you see around you is constructed out of shapes. Some of them are shadow shapes and some are light shapes. And there's a whole range in between of course. But you only need to define the boundaries, so when you draw shadow shapes, you don't even have to fill them in. Try to indicate their boundaries instead. In short - all drawing is tonal drawing.

    And consider this: using lines is the most basic way to draw shapes (read: anything), and from here good artists stylize what they see into more symbolic stuff. But unfortunately, other artists copy these symbols without understanding the underlying relation of shadow shapes and without the knowledge that allows it. And if I can't do a solid drawing, (even a simplified drawing with only 2 tones), then how will I be able to draw in colour? This is exactly the point I'm making and what I understood since I came to London. Painting or adding details has the nasty effect of emphasizing the mistakes you've made in your basic shapes/proportions. Not to mention that when you paint you usually paint over most lines, and if your drawing was symbolic without you knowing it, you're in a mess.

    At first, strive to draw using a single tone for all the shadow shapes to simplify what you see and to force your mind to observe more. Tones come later because ultimately, line drawing has it limits on the number of tones you can describe coherently. But you can always describe an object's arrangement of shapes using only lines.

    Note: some of the examples/quotes are not related to you, I wanted to show a bigger picture. The advice is of course, valid for almost all of us non masters (read: Imma noob : P)

    Love the line quality and clarity. Also the tonal studies are very good. Love page 10 with the humongous figure drawing sketch dump.

    I see a ton of life studies, but can only advise more, also something that might help if putting more force behind the lines, Vilppu is full of advice on how to do that and since I love pimping me some Villppu here is a link to his manual

    There is also this little book about anatomy and shading


    Good luck
    Good luck and
