    Great christmas card. I really love your animals especially your dinosaur drawings (even if I know that you don't want to draw these^^). Your studies of the human body are getting better and better. Keep it up. I like the cartoonish faces you have drawn here and there

    Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook!
    You have a great sense of color and how colors work together. I particularly like Autumn Woods (#74). That's painted up reallllly nicely. I agree with a lot of the other people here that you should definitely check and double check your proportions in your drawings. You have a lot of expression in your figures and portraits but I get distracted by the faulty proportions. Keep up the good work though!

    @ANtY93 - thanks! Birds are best, and this one came out reasonably well, although still quite a few mistakes happening in there.

    @Macska - thanks! But a long way to go yet with the birdies. They are just rather fun to draw.

    @Tamaira2011 - ta! Glad you like the dinos. I will be drawing more, be assured! I just wanted to get more fundamentals down before I started drawing more "fantastical" creatures... but promised myself I could branch out in 2012. I got a new dino dvd for xmas... so dinos dinos dinos!

    @lemming-clone- - so true about the anatomy. It makes me cringe when I look back on it, but it is slowly improving, so will stick at it.

    _ _ _ _


    Last entry of 2011! It has been a great year, and have rediscovered drawing again. Thoroughly enjoyed myself, and am looking forward as to what 2012 will bring. Wondering if one day I can draw professionally, many years from now. It's an exciting thought. For now, will end it on some sketches that are not great, but can only get better.

    Have a great new year, everyone.

    1. Sketches sketches, who got the sketches?
    2. The faces are drawn from imagination, full body from ref.
    3. Drawn from imagination. Getting there, albeit really slowly.

    @nyoron - thanks! Less dedicated, more annoyed at how bad they are, and the only way to sort that out is practice.

    Happy new year everyone! New year, new sketchbook. And a resolution to buy a scanner TODAY as I am tired of taking such bad photos.

    Have a few bits from last year (ha!)

    1. quick digital pic from reference
    2. Posemaniacs, 30 seconds.
    3. Really fast and really bad, without reference.
    4. Hands. I hate drawing hands. Although not as much as I hate drawing feet.
    5. Arms drawn at the in-laws house. So frustrating and not so good as I was never left alone for more than five minutes at a time.

    The last one where you weren't left alone is actually my favorite. Your pencil work is so much more fluid and relaxed than the others. You've made good progress.

    I think the main issue I see is the head proportion compared to the rest of the figure. Like in post #97.

    One thing you might try is next time your drawing the face also is just tone down the size of the facial features opposed to as you normally would. Take into account the other parts of the face that people tend to forget about like the planes around the cheeks. People tend to add a lot of emphasis on the eyes nose and mouth. Looking back I need to work on that myself lol. I still make my features a little too big in comparison.

    I think you are pretty good. The draw women better than men. Your men look like girly boys. Maybe you should draw hyper masculine cro magnon cave man dudes. Or maybe Connan?

    Then take it down ity down a notch and end up with handsome masculine looking dudes.

    What types of skulls are these? Is that toothy one in number 2 a musk deer?

    @Zeppelin - Argh, don't say that. Stress is not a good motivator

    @Zoriy - Thank you. Looks like a lot of people like my birdies, which is grand, as I like drawing them.

    @LastGen - Thank you, i'm hoping to do a lot more birds in 2012.

    @JFierce - absolutely agree with your comments. Looking through my stuff, a definite problem with large heads and features. Am fighting it all the way and some of my newer stuff seems a bit better proportioned.

    @Theodor - agree with you absolutely! I prefer drawing girls to boys. Oddly enough, I have actually been drawing Tarzan recently, hopefully slightly more butcher than my normal lot! I cannot for the life of me recall what the skulls were, but I think they were small carnivores of some sort - musk deer have that "ridge" at the front of their jaw. Actually, that might be rather fun to draw!

    I am a HAPPY BUNNY. I have managed to partially restore my old scanner. Although I will need to buy a new one, this has meant that have spent today bumming around and rescanning my pics so they are a lot clearer. I am slowly editing through my sketchbook, so they will be of better quality. I am already cringing at the standard of most of them but its good to see some progression.

    1. Another quickie study at the in-laws.
    2. Robins from imagination.
    3. Study from painting.
