    Cow Mejin learns to draw...

    Hello,

    I'm from germany.
    I study animation but I love to draw as well.
    This is my sketchbook.
    Welcome! :-)

    I made very less improvement in the last years, because I guess a lack of time or/and discipline for it.
    I want it to change, because it annoys me a lot.
    I will try to pull the old strings of practise again...

    So, here are some lately sketches, all from the last time, except the Samurai and the Satyr - these are from some years ago - you see - very less improvement.

    The 3 pictures after another are speedpaints(30 minutes all, one picture after 15 minutes and then the finished one), I try to make them nearly every day... all with random photos from the internet.

    I'll try to update this sketchbook a lot!

    Thanks for coming in!

    Todays Speedpaint.
    Well, didn't match the colours so well.

    I hope, that I'll be able to load up some scribbles/sketches later. :-)

    First I have to animate.

    i like your drawing style, especially the errr.. picture with 'love for japan' .

    hmm...i think the guy in the winter scene arms are too small.. :/

    Thank you!! :-D

    Well, the winter-guy - there I tried just to doodle around with a little bit more stylized things - because oft that he has this ... very thin arms.

    Well well, some skintest practise from some days ago.
    1 hour with reference.

    And a 4(?) minute sketch before going to bed.
    (but before I have to play a little bit StarCraft2 ;D - another reason why I don't draw enough right now...)

    Greetings

    It's weekend, so no speedpaint today...
    because I mostly make them in the uni before starting to animate...

    Some sketches to warm up from today.
    Sorry for the low quality pictures with from perspectives... I just put them in front of my webcam...
    because I'm too lazy to scan and to take a picture with a cam. -_-

    Mostly without reference, but a few with.

    Back

    Back with todays speedpaint.
    I got a cold after all the stress and had to cure this, but now I'm hopefully back.

    Messed up with the colours - have to practise more!

    And a little sketch, related to the topic: "Devouring".

    Greetings

    Nice studies! Kinda seems like you've done more photo studies of females than males though

    My Sketchbook - Advice would be very much appreciated! =]

    You got good talent, but just a quick thought is I think you should try and do some basic perspective practices and other basic stuff like that. I´m sure it´s gonna put that little extra in your work to make it even better!

    @Lumari: Thanks! Yes, that's right... because I draw mainly men, so I try to practise more females in most of my speedpaints...

    @Urötskidoji: Thanks as well. Yes, I should definately practise more perspective, although I do know the principles... it was always one weakness of me.

    Just to show you some older Speedpaints(that I draw a wide range of motives) here are some-all 30 minutes.(just the outcome) There are lots of other, but well...
    I really need to practise more, in spite of the fact I do primary animation these days...

    I really like the style of your work. Keep up with the studies and try to mix in some speed paints that are from life rather than from photos.

    Hey there, it seems like you want to learn to draw BETTER ! Because it seems to me you already have some considerable skill there, I really love the way you handle all the colors in a work.

    really nice progress, I love the study of the rose! Just a small suggestion for the last pic in the last post.
    You could try to use more red in certain areas, like the ear, eye, nose and lip area, since more blood circulates in those areas.
    Weiter so!

    @Kerah: Thank you! Well, I guess, I do know some basics, but it's just really not enough... :-/
    @mokka: :-) Yes, I wanted this guy quite pale, but maybe it looses contrast this way... maybe I should have put some more red to set a course.

    Speedpaints from friday and today and a little sketch I did for the blog of a friend and mine.
    We have every week one topic and scribble something related to this.
    This time it was "Left behind"...

    *now goes back to animation...*
