    twila sketchbook //something will happen

    I'm here cause I want to improve. Be harsh, be kind; just tell me the truth about my work.

    Books I am currently reading/watching:
    1. Vilppu Chapter 1


    Sometimes I have excuses for not drawing; I'll correct that!

    I wouldn't worry about that, everyone is pretty supportive here. Looks like you're off to a good start, I see you've picked up Loomis.

    Mix in a little bit of life drawing, drawing from reference, anatomy, and drawing from imagination everyday and you'll be a good track to improvement. If you think that would take more time than you have each day, just try to shoot for two of the subjects. The varied studies will help keep you interested and improving!

    Keep on drawing!

    Tim Murphy: Thank you!
    Yeah, I'll definitely have to keep it varied. Last time I slowly halted my studies since it was always the same thing... ;A; Well I won't make that mistake again!
    Loomis is lots of fun to read/practice.

    Black Sun S.: Yay support! Improvement is always riveting, no matter how much one improves. I'll make sure to do that, thanks! ;D


    Today I opened my sketchbook and focused on refs + anatomy. I couldn't find my set of monoliths so I used a regular 2HB pencil.

    Tim Murphy: I'll try my best to follow a varied and balanced routine! Thank you for your kind words. :3

    Black Sun: Improvement is always awesome; lets both improve! Thanks ;D


    Here's today's batch:
    Tried some thirty second gestures (1), gestures with some shading (2), eyes from imagination (3), and then more 30 second gestures with shading + a bunny (4).
    I need to definitely work on lines: make them smoother and longer instead of short.
    My anatomy is still weak, especially in torso proportions. I tend to make the space between the shoulders and the breast a little too long and screw up on the butt area...

    Tim Murphy: Thanks! I'll try my best to focus on all three and keep it varied.

    Black Sun: Will do, thank you. :3

    Here's what I did yesterday!
    Pardon my bad scanning abilities...

    twila sketchbook //something will happen
    p1 - 30 second gestures
    p2 - gestures with shading
    p3 - imagination

    twila sketchbook //something will happen
    30 second gestures with shading!
    bunny
    eye from imagination

    Definitely need to continue working on anatomy studies. Might rummage through my old bio book!
