    Immortal Cintiq wants to be good at Drawing

    Hi guys,

    My name is Mike, im 25, and I joined ca.org in order to improve my drawing skills.

    There are some ridiculously talented and motivated people here and hopefully, some of the talent and discipline will rub off me.

    Any harsh criticism, suggestions for improvement or words of wisdom is greatly appreciated.

    So here's some of my crap...

    The first two are ps paintings for photos. Im still learning how to paint with FAPC (famous artists painting course)

    Then a head drawing, Zhang lu copy, figure drawing, copy from Vilppu's drawing manual, exercise from Preston Blair's book, and finally imagination drawings.

    Hey guys,

    Some more Studies n stuff.

    The Gestures r 1-2mins.

    I couldn't finish the head study.

    The imagination drawings are embarrassing but whatever. The last one is doodled on the train.

    Anyone know how to write in between the images? lol

    I really like those figure studies... are they from photos/life or other drawings? The lines have a great flow to them.

    To write between images... you know the attachment icon, the paperclip? After you upload the images, you can click the little down arrow next to it to see a list of attachments, and insert them into the post wherever you want.

    Hey, thanks Sean.

    Acutally, almost all the paintings I've even done is uploaded on this page. Im still sorta learning so color is kinda premature. And scares me a bit.

    ALL women ALL OF THESE gorgeous women and two midget male rapper caricatures and a silly elephant phallus stand-in?

    12 years old is the subtext here. Seriously dude. Draw some men. Men are seriously beautiful, and beauty does not necessarily equate to sexuality.

    they are really nice studies btw

    I humbly admit I'm one of those people!

    Ok...so I'm SERIOUSLY joking...BUT you have a really good start here.

    Those grey scale pieces are really tasty. The two figures and portrait at the top of post #1 are excellent.

    It's good to see the gestures and anatomy study. Keep after those with a vengance!

    This is the 100 2 Min head exercise on Zhang Lu's DVD. Its was really tough to trny get a readable head in such a short time. I think im up to # 38 . The last one is imagination head drawings after doing the Zhang Lu exercise. Indeed i need a lot more practice.

    Hey Thanks Strange Purple, Yeah, preston blairs book is a great way to learn to make your drawing more solid.

    So one more drawing before I go to bed.

    This time, I tried to lay in the darks and lights before going into detail. Although I feel more comfortable going straight into details and rendering, I find that it is easier to get the correct values with this method. Plus this one took me a little less then 4 hours wereas the one before took 6.
