so here are my first scetches
Ah, the quality is bad but I have no scanner, so I had to photograph the works. The first three drawings are resulting from a live nude model. I have drawn them in school
The next two pages are from imagination and the last three have I made from observation in school.

Great start! Love that you're drawing from life. I need to do more of that. Only thing I could say is work on line quality. Try to think of the start and end of the line. Keep going
Ah, mal wieder ein bekanntes Gesicht hier :'D
Also bei den AKtzeichnungen hat man noch das Gefühl, da fehlt dir die Sicherheit in der Strichführung. Da sind die anderen Zeichnungen deutlich besser. Drum denke ich, dass wird sich bei den Lifedrawings auch noch ergeben.
Wäre evtl. interessant, wenn du dich mehr damit auseinandersetzt, wie man die Massen des Körpers konstruieren kann. Damit auch weg von platten Konturen zu dem Zeichnen von echten Formen. Ist ein bisschen schwer zu erklären, aber wenn rausbekommt, beim Zeichnen den Unterschied zwischen FLäche und Masse einzubringen, dann hat man es geschafft =) Wird schon werden! Bin mal gespannt, was alles hier rein kommen wird
Hello and welcome to CA!
The figuredrawing looks promising but try not to do so many lines. Look at the model and really get the form in your head and lay down one stroke. Many lines makes it look messy and it screws up the form. If you want to lay down shadows real quick, use the side of the led rather than scribbling the shadows in there.
If you want a more crosshatchy shading, you need to do the strokes in the flow of the curvature of the form.
Hope that makes sense and that it helps some!
Keep it up!
Hey, wow, thank you very much for your comments and tips . I did not expect that I get resonance for my first post here :,)
I will try to implement your suggestions in the next time.
@Tides, thank you for the first comment to my Sketchbook Thats so cool because the line quality has occupied me in the recent days already. I just did not know what was wrong and how I could do it better.
@Valyavande, ja jetzt habe ich mich auch mal hier hergetraut xD
Ja ich merke auch, dass ich mich verbessere, von Mal zu Mal. Ich wollte in nächster Zeit sowieso mal versuchen an meiner Linienführung zu arbeiten. Irk, Massen ;_; Damit tue ich mich noch relativ schwer. Zumindest mit dem ,Konstruieren'. Ich mache viel zu viel nach Gefühl, ohne es wirklich zu verstehen. Das ist bei verschiedenen Perspektiven total problematisch.
@Loathsome, thank you very much for this tip, I will try to try that in the next Days. I want to improve my stroke, because I realize that I'm still very uncertain in my studies
The first five studies are from a live model, from 4 to 40 minutes.
The next three studies are from Bammes and Loomis.
Then comes a study from School
A study from imagination
A Photoshop-painting from imagination.
Today, i load much 1-minute-studies from http://www.pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html
Central-point-perspectives with figures from imagination
A few very~ bad faces from imagination
A study from a ,Schuhschnabel(shoebil?)'-Bird(stuffed ;_ from observation. I made it in the Zoological-museum Hamburg.

Here some sites from my sketchbook~ (imagination)
Those are some great anatomy sketches and studies and a great start to a SB, you're on the right way so far but don't be afraid to draw more feet and hands...nobody likes to draw 'em but it's really important that you study them too.
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=213907 My sketchbook!
I tried to work on my lines and hope, they're a bit better now, thank you for this helpful tip!!
Here two studies, I made in the Zoogical Museum Hamburg,
studies from a male model in school,
a observation-page from my sketchbook

It's great to see students hard working! I heard a lot of people think school is going to do the work for them.
Nice sketches, especially the figure studies!
As always keep em coming
Ach und viel Glück bei deinem Studium!
You've got a promising start. What really helped me improve my line quality was to do lots of 30 second gesture drawings. This way you perceive shapes faster, and get more solid/simple lines quickly, this way when you go to do a long figure study, you'll have a stronger idea of the lines and forms, and won't have to "search" for the line. Keep it up!
@Zipfelzeus: Danke dir Ach was ist schon Schule wenn man sich auch selbst weiterbringen kann.
@hala: Hey, thanks for the tipp I've tried to to do 30 second gesture drawings today, but failed. This is still going too fast for me. But I will try it again in the next weeks.
First a few hands. I know, they're bad, but I will practice it x3
A lot of 60-sec-figure-drawings from http://www.pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html
A self-portrait of doom ~___~''' thats how I look like on lonely weekends (~2 hours)
Two pages from my sketchbook (the girl: I saw this type of practice in Janaschis sketchbook)
One observation-page i made in school.
Love the figure with multiple limbs. Seems like a great way to memorize and figure out things in your head. Your line quality is already improving quite a lot!
Das Tierskelett fand ich verflucht gut, und den Rest natürlich auch. Bin gespannt, wie gut du in ein paar Monaten bist
@Tide: Thank you I continue to work on my lines, I think it gives me a lot
@Shehaub: Hey, thank you cery much *_*
@Luxaeterna: Danke dir Ich hoffe, ich werde mich in ein paar Monaten ein bissl verbessert haben und auch im digitalen Malen besser sein.
Today I tried to practice Faces
first a photoshoptry
the second Page is half imagination, half observation,
then a page with studies frog Hogath,
a page from imagination
five pages with studies from models I have made in school today.
Hallo, today a drawing so between 4-6 hours, imagination without a ref.
That skeleton and the self-portrait is very good. You have a good sense of observation. Your drawings are improving too, keep it up! Perhaps do one self-portrait everyday? Perhaps some still lifes, apples, oranges?
Sorry for the lack of posting!
I have had some trouble recently (school, friends, the whole real life ;_; )
I'm going to post more regular from now on!
Wow thanks... your comments are more than welcome, I really appreciate that.
@Shehaub: Thank you so much, I'll try to improve my skills more and more. :-)
@pixel cheetah: Thank you!
Maybe I am gonna buy a matching mirror within the next few days so I can start painting myself from life :-)
@Fallenangel: Thanks ;~;!!! I won't stop!
Sorry for the bad quality of the photos!
The first two pieces are 60-sec-studies from http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.phpThe second two pics are pencil works I did from imagination for school. Gosh, my cam is so crappy XD all details on the pictures are gone!! :-(
(Translation-help by ramzn! ;Ö;!!!)

Hhhh...that's the third time i'm trying to comment on your SB for the past 20 min, my damn internet connection crashes all over again.....
Anyways, great work, it's really cool to see your determination on making those studies, it will definitely pay off in the near future.
Just keep making the great work!
Wow Thank you very much
I think it's worth slowly *___*!. I realize that I start to going better, step by step.
