    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook!

    Your still life drawings are really well done! One thing you might want to try is value stuff (only using grayscale) to improve you contrast skills- your textures are phenomenal though!

    Jakobvs: Thank you!

    andres: Thanks for the link, I already watched some videos from over there.

    Charli(e): Thanks a lot for the suggestion - I will definitely try out painting some greyscale from life the next time!

    dolmen: Thanks as well

    Here are some sketches from the last days, finally found the time to scan them. I'm a bit stuck with Loomis, as I'm done with the first part of the anatomy stuff, but don't feel like I progressed enough to go on with the next chapter. So I tried out Michael Hampton's figure drawing, I'm sure you will see the different drawing style in my sketches. Also started on drawing faces and some hands from life, a long way to go as always!
    Also, some 30 sec posemaniacs.

    More stuff, this time a lot of Hampton. I think I should draw some skulls before drawing faces/heads...

    I find Hampton's simplified muscles easier than Loomis, but then again, I already gained some knowledge from Loomis studies, so this may help as well.

    Some things from the last days - mostly from Hampton, I'm done with his book now, I learnt some great concepts/simplifications from him!

    More stuff from life. I don't find more interesting subjects I'm not satisfied with the dinner-one, I'm always struggling a lot when I have to paint round objects (like the plate and the bread)... sure, the circle looks like an ellipse when lowering the view point, but still... always looks quite off.

    I think I just figured out how to use the attachments appropriately... let's try!

    First are Loomis studies, but I applied my own shading technique. It's faster and gives me the information I need, I guess.

    Figures are 5 minutes pixelovely for each pose. This was the first time where I really felt like all the anatomy stuff paid off... I do however heavily rely on my construction lines, so I can build the bodies from circles and lines before I draw the contour (just look at the hundreds of lighter lines, that's what I mean), I don't know if this is good or not? Should I try to work more clean or won't this hurt the learning process?
    The hands are drawn from life again - long way to go.
    The fancy block-thingy on the bottom is my first attempt in three point perspective after this lovely perspectice 101.

    Here is my first attempt at ... well, composition practice? Done after "How pictures work" book. Does anybody have some advice for me, what I could do to practice composition?

    What? Nice amount of work and people shy to congraz you.
    You rely on construction lines as you should, draw your cubes, spheres, circles, elipses, whatever helps you to set up figure properly, and if you rly want more cleaner work nail "contour" lines in as few strokes as you can. Gesture and construction lines will not hurt your work.

    Take care.

    Liberty: Thank you. I'll try to very slowly reduce my construction lines, then.

    BigEfru: Hehe, danke dir Mach dir wegen Photoshop mal keine Gedanken - letztendlich ist das auch nur ein Werkzeug, das gelernt werden muss, mit bisschen Zeitinvestition geht das schon... die Basics sind das wirklich wichtige, also Anatomie, Farben usw.. und dafür brauchts kein PS

    Here are some more sketches from Pixelovely photos. 5 minutes each pose again. Most of them really are fun to do - how I wish I could draw them from life! I also tried drawing myself standing in front of the mirrow today, but it was quite awkward, hard to stand in an interesting pose, hold my paper and draw at the same time..
    The perspective practices are again from this tutorial.
