    Take it till ya make it

    You can as well skip this page, nothing interesting to see here

    Edit: Added my first character drawings from imagination, one influenced by Frazetta, and other one with Assassin's Creed, and that's about it.

    Ok, here goes another one. Basically, I have a problem when it comes to measuring in perspective (can't really tell if I overdid something). Also, sometimes I have a problem with the spine drawing (angle, curves, and such). So, if you have any tips regarding those problems, I would really appreciate it. And OHI, thanks for a welcome.

    Edit: Another one. This on is in a WIP state.

    Ok, I did some 1 min gesture drawings. This is the first time I'm doing this, so I'm a little bit confused, but pretty happy with the results.

    When drawing gestures, should I pay attention to the basic proportions, and get those right, or is it only for finding the essence of the pose? Most of the time, I draw the head first, then I try to find a middle line and establish basic proportions, like where should I place the nipples, belly button, hips, and such. I do this really fast, but I wanted to ask if this is the right way of drawing gestures and learning from those, or should I just draw whatever my I sees, and not focusing that much on the proportions? Also, should I be using long, curvy lines, or short ones, like I did here. I'm using a small tablet, so my arm can't move that much. I guess you've already answered these questions a dozen of times, but I'm a total beginner, so have mercy.

    about the gesture drawing , try to draw slower and feel the action , and yes try to give an attetion to propostion , and about starting with the head or the feet , it's not matter , just get the gesture right and you can draw so fast if you want to , but just if you want to get more informations from the figure , try to draw it slower about 60 sec or 90 , and good luck

    Change is such hard work

    Alright, thank you very much for those advices.

    So, I did some more gesture drawings, this time trying to use less lines. I'm very slow at this moment, these gestures took me 90sec each, and they look even worse than 30 sec ones that I saw in the other places. . I feel like I've already learned something from practicing these gestures (although I don't have a clue of how am I going to draw them from imagination, at least for now), like finding the spine line, a bit on proportions, then finding a nice shoulders and hips angle, etc. The thing is, should I also learn anatomy and perspective, or should I just stick with these gesture drawings for now?

    While searching the forums in order to get more knowledge of gesture drawing, in one of the threads I've found about The Vilppu Drawing Manual, so I started reading it, and so far, so good. I've started with his basic training, and I'm gonna continue as I go through it. I'll post the examples of my drawings, they aren't anything special, cause, as I already said, I'm going trough his basic exercises. Oh, I've also downloaded Loomis's Books, and I love them. Been learning more about proportions from his figure drawing book, but then I went back to Successful Drawing. So, I'm planing to continue with all three of these books, and I'm gonna learn from them whenever I get a hand on some free time.

    Didn't post anything yesterday, because I was pissed off when the electricity went down, which resulted in lost of my gesture drawings. Anyway, did some today, and probably will do some more this night. I also started making some thumbnails and study of perspective from Loomis's book, but hell, I'm gonna post those when I make some more. Anyway, to cut the crap, here are some new gesture drawings (1 min each).

    Yeey, I've managed to find portrait of Jack Sparrow I made few months ago (8-9 I think). This one is my first portrait (although I did study a bit on face proportions), and I haven't done any portrait after this one. God, it's a lot easier to handle a 2B pencil than one on my Wacom Pen tablet. I'm not sure I'll be focusing on portraits in near future, cause, you know, I'd like to get more into digital art, painting some nasty environments and action scenes. But hell, gesture drawings are giving me a headache. Even though I'm trying to not paint outlines (studying a Vilppu's book), my gestures seem pretty lifeless and boring. Maybe I would do better if I would be using a common pencil, but I'd like to get used to my graphic tablet as soon as I can, so...I'll keep trying. Oh, yeah, I also painted an apple.

    I've finally found a book with witch I fall in love (regarding gesture and figure drawing). Here are some of the gestures I've drawn before the launch, and I'm planing to draw more tonight, and perhaps do another painting, this time of an onion.

    More, more! Will probably post ones more this night, but I'd like to post a practice. And, to ask a question, am I doing good so far, any suggestions of what should I study (as a wannabe future concept artist ), or how to improve the current gesture and value studies? Thanks!

    Edit: Here, while learning from Vilppu's book, I had to do some exercise regarding his way of drawing gestures (which I kinda like the most). I changed 3 of the gestures a bit, and I like the results. I studied these carefully, especially the first one (which has some arrows on it). So, now I'm planning to continue work trough his book, while also reading Loomi's Successful Drawing and practicing perspective, a little bit of anatomy, and paining some "things", like I did with onion and apple.

    Had some free time before launch, so I did these 3 min gesture studies (from a book). They would normally take me a bit less than 3 minutes, but I'm trying to concentrate on how do lines and shapes work together, so that I can construct some from imagination in the nearest future. Now I'm reading a book of how to construct landscapes, so I should post some stuff when I start working on those. Would be nice if I get some critiques so that I can improve faster. Any suggestion regarding of what to study for a concept artist would be really helpful. Thanks!
