    pixel cheetah: Thanks! I intend to!

    HannesD: Yup! SPIDERS! All of these used references, but SPIDERS.

    Ichibrun: I wish I could take credit, but they're the words of Samuel Beckett. And yes it is scary, but I'll probably end up moving on from him for now.

    SPIDERS OK

    Good spiders. Have you tried beetles or crabs? Be more confident with your lines.

    Thanks pixel cheetah, and nope, I haven't tried crabs or beetles yet but I do like creepy bugs, so I might make those my 50 gestures for this week! And as for the line-confidence... I'd like to be better at it. I do line exercises, but it's taking an annoyingly long time to stick.

    ***

    Tuesdays are aaaalways going to be really lame for updates, it's one of my busiest days. But here's uh... an unfortunate woman. No references were used for this one, just drawing for shits and giggles tonight. I actually really really like the concept though so if anybody has any critique I might turn it into a full blown painting this weekend, if I have time.

    Man I don't even like that picture I drew yesterday anymore. And I'm not fond of these gestures either. I finally took a lok at some Vilppu videos, and he really explains things remarkably well. I tried applying some of the things I learned from his videos, but I think I should have given myself more time for each gesture to get used to the new ideas. As a result a lot of these look stiff, the lines are unconfident and I even had to cut off limbs because I was just fucking up all over the place.

    I'm not going to beat myself up too much. I've definitely heard from people that when you learn something new and try to apply it, it almost feels/looks as though you've gone backwards in skill. So I'm not worried, just gotta practice.

    Ugh, those lines though, those lines. I'm feeling frustrated. Gotta chill out. These things take time and effort.

    This is definitely true.
    Sometimes when I'm feeling frustrated I hang out with my niece (she's 5 and thinks I'm some kind of mystic sorcerer when I draw things for her.) It makes me feel better .
    If your really getting addled step back and draw something fun, remind yourself why you love drawing. Nothing worse then flogging yourself into a rut with endless studies.

    Rhubix, good idea, that's exactly what I decided to do. I figure tomorrow it's supposed to be crazy snowy so I'm gonna have the whole day to stay in and practice, might as well have fun tonight.

    ****

    So here's a bunch of doodles/sketches. Everything's from imagination except the Comet Moth. I hate pretty much everything about the Luna Moth person, but I'm going to upload it anyway. I feel like my imagination needs as much exercise as my technical skills. As in, a lot.

    I just didn't have the gumption to do anything big tonight. It's been a long week. But I drew for a few hours, so I'm happy, even if it wasn't super-productive practice.

    Great figure studies! It's really cool to see the amount of work you're putting into them, and it pays off--you've visibly improved since page 1

    (Also, I like the chaotic warmup sheet--I might have to start doing those, too!)

    {Not in a good form for this but I had to return the visit before I forget...}
    Your SB reminds me of so many things I epically neglect lately. Spartan camp, drawing my fairy named Twirl again after years (she has twirls on her boobs too ), and yep, figures.
    Nice SB, your lines aren't that bad in my opinion, I wouldn't worry about them anyway, it really just takes time. The most important thing not to stop. (Or if you stop for a few days, start again.) I had whole periods when I would be happy with just some... anything. (well no but I would appreciate them) If you keep drawing, you are on your way, maybe it's extremely far from a straight or a nice twirly one, going into stupid direction sometimes but you are moving, getting chances to get better. If you sit still, horrible things may happen, even the fearful Nothing Happens At All. I was there, I know how valuable just to do something. I did nothing, having high standards and a cruel strict self critic. I understand one is unpleased with their stuff very well but sometimes I feel others should appreciate this basic first step, just practicing, no matter what, more.
    I wonder if my thought could get through, I'm not so good at this now I fear

    I like most of your gestures, don't like the portrait in #64, you changed so many things, even angle, colors, whatever but it's better not to go all critical about it, my inner critic is too skilled at that and it wouldn't help.
    The winged humanoid in the very last pic is unbalanced, I don't want to criticize its not quite human proportions because it's not a human, but for some reason, it's not so believable than the previous one that's nice but it's not clear if she's standing (her pose totally suggests it) or levitating or what.

    What creepy bugs? Most bugs aren't creepy and spiders, well they are just cute Not as much as a baby hiena or vulture chick, but still, I love them.

    Meps: Thanks! The warmup sheets are fun and they really help loosen me up. Also sometimes really fun doodles come from them, haha.

    shiNIN: I really have been trying hard to not stop. Even on days like today where nothing I'm drawing is coming easily. Believe me, I know about sitting still... I drew a lot for fun til I was about 17, and stopped for 6 years out of discouragement, and here I am now. So I'm determined to never let it happen again. Even though I hate a lot of what I do, I know that it'll pass. I always think, "Where would I be now if I had drawn every day for that six years?" and it fills me with a lot of regret, but regret is a waste of time.

    For the portrait, if you ever have the time or inclination to really rip it to shreds that would be awesome! It was my first attempt at a portrait for yeeears, and I can see how it's off but I don't really understand how it's off yet. How can a critic be too skilled? Good criticism is why I came to this site! Cause I suck! And oh man, that second person... the proportions are atrocious, even for a fairy creature or something. I almost didn't even upload it, but I figure, if I don't upload the crap nobody will see the patterns of the things I do wrong. (Oh, and the yellow one isn't standing or levitating really, she's just... displayed in midair, I guess. I just wanted to paint pretty wings. )

    And yeah, some bugs are cute, but you can have the millipedes and centipedes, haha.

    Aragah: Thanks, I try! It's taken courage to even try things from imagination, I feel like I'll "ruin" my ideas by trying them, but that's dumb.

    ***

    So today was not a good day and I have no gumption. I had all the time but no inclination to do much, sigh. So all I have for today from my laziness is some gestures, and I am getting very bored of these for now and really want to change it up.

    I think tomorrow I may take a look at the Environmental Speedpainting guide I got from the CA store. Yeeeeeeah sales! It'll be something completely different, and I really need something to light a fire under my ass.

    I feel like these have gotten even worse. I tried to pay closer attention to actual forms but pheh. I dunno.

    Just gotta keep this in mind I guess...

    I have to say that I really like your gestures. I'm awful at them, so anytime I can actually read what's going on in someone elses I'm impressed! I will definately have to stop by again when I'm not so sleepy and make a better post. *yawn*

    thumbs up!
