    Okay I been putting this off too long, I'm finally making a sketchbook
    Hopefully a year later I will look on this and say Woah I improved so much.

    My art blog helped me tremendously to do art and keep track of where I was going, so I figure this will be even better as I will get some exposure and some *much* needed bashing.

    I always drew a lot but I never thought to do art seriously until recently (if March this year counts as recent lol). So I have LOTS of catching up to do (not good, because I'm a really slow learner) You guys have to help me out ok ^^

    Things I've been working on this week:
    1. The blue watergunner character was to get me back into art after a weeklong art block. I always like to do pretty fantasy girls in nonfunctional decorative clothing, so I thought I'd go easy on myself you know loosen up. I like the character detailing but bg, composition and design is shitty. But I don't mind too badly becuase this was a doodle-level thing anyway xD
    2. I'm getting into environments! I've been working on composition since yesterday or so... after reading composition guidelines I tried testing them on some of my favorite environmental pieces (by other people) Also doubled as a value study. I don't know about anything else but it did open my eyes to composition D:
    3. Just random rough thumbnails to get me into environments

    Coming up next: Chow#254 "Queen of Seren" doodles (not done yet!)

    It's quite beautiful. I'd love to see more.

    And I'm on the same "improvement" train you are. I'm always trying to reach for that next milestone but commentary is hard to come by.

    @Zaccrockett, Featheredface: Thanks, and I will be sure to keep commenting on others works ^_^

    @CountBlackula: Thanks, I'm off to check your latest wip!
    @Marlo and Neferinn, thanks for the kind words ^_^

    And now for today's measly update
    .. I took a smaller adapter to the library so my laptop lagged all day ( aka, no photoshop no pretty digitals)
    Tried to learn human arms anatomy all day. It is amazingly complicated, layering and intertwining and crossing each other everywhere... I started with Loomis books and looked up models and medical dissections on Youtube, and touched myself all day (on the arms of course. what did you think )

    I'm actually not too sure if I'm on the right track with these, but looking at previous arms I've drawn I can see my eye has improved so unless anyone has any suggestions, I'm moving on. I still need to work on where the muscle tendons of the forearm connect on both ends, then I'll call it a day for now and work on legs or maybe neck (both my weak points) while I learn to apply it to my own images.

    Example page below (all the other pages are similar, full of random arm attempts and spindly notes)
    *cloudcan's head is a can of clouds*

    up next: more anatomy, more composition, Queen of Seren (chow), and/or something prettyful

    Your lines are quite messy. Try using as few lines as possible, it'll help you gain confidence and it looks cleaner.

    Keep up the good work! I really like your digital stuff.

    @Umbravita Thanks man! I flipped through your sketchbook and I see what you mean about being cleaner and more confident (love your figure studies!)

    Still life from life to warm me up, now that Internet's in I'm off to learn some more anatomy (and using clearer linework ) It's too bad that I woke up so late, lost about 4 hours of time.

    With below, I realized that I need major work on straight edges (not to mention I totally forgot about perspective) If anyone has any suggestions beside using the shift-click method, please tell me!

    Your clearly way more skilled than I am and now I am definitely super intimidated when we start doing our projects XD but it will give me something to aspire to

    Your sketches are really good, the only thing I have to say is to look at alot more poses to see how balance affects your piece. The first painting, her stance looks very awkward, and I know it wasn't finished, but just the way shes firing the gun, yet her legs are behind her in a straight position seem unrealistic in nature but that's all I have to say really.

    This is how I feel about my art block right now (~30 min speedpaint)
    *cloudcan's head is a can of clouds*
    Today is SO a Can't-Draw Day.

    @Ceteri: Thanks, though I'm not 'clearly way more skilled' than you I probably just been drawing longer, is all. I'm a very slow learner x(
    You are totally right about the pose, poses have always been one of my weakest points, especially poses that look natural and active (I have heard many times that my poses are stiff, unnatural, boring/awkward) and I wasn't thinking much when I drew this piece, which probably made it worse. Thanks a lot for the comment, I will definitely try harder on the poses the next time I draw. ^_^
