    AllyAlbon - Thanks, much appreciated!
    Umbravita - Thank you! Yeah, I think I like seeing the construction lines too.
    Kaihartj - Thank you. Well you know, when it comes to studies in my opinion you have to find a time that works best
    for you. If you're not internalizing anything then chances are you need to either a) slow down or b) think more when you draw.
    It is all too easy to let your mind go on cruise control when doing studies so try to avoid that as much as possible.

    -------------------------------------------------

    Well guys, this is a pretty monumental moment for me. I've made many different accounts on this site and I would have
    to say that I've had at least 4 or 5 SB's here but this is my first time hitting page 2 on a sketchbook. Pathetic, I know, but
    definitely something worth celebrating.

    When I made this, I told myself to avoid color and I have been. So here I am going to break the "silence" and post some color works.

    I feel like color is my weak point. I am not particularly happy or proud of how cartoony my coloring always ends up.

    Oh, the first painting is just a color test but I decided to post it because it looks silly.

    Oh yeah and also I would like to post "Enlightened Yao Ming". I made this a few days ago when I was feeling down. I realized
    that I cared too much about what people think about my art and honestly, I shouldn't. So every time I feel down about art
    I just look at Enlightened Yao Ming and remember not to give a fuck.

    hehe enlightenment yao xD
    keep that train of thought with you

    I love the concept of the female there, that flame is absolutely done beautifully and I think your faces are so expressive which is wonderful

    feels like her hip to leg area is a bit smaller than it should be, especially that leg in the back but it could just be me

    definitely quality over quantity but it does depend on what you're studying, if gesture, do lots and lots and lots is how you're gonna get better not simply by getting one or two done perfectly, I feel that it's something that simply gets better through doing many as you'll probably end up correcting mistakes as you do more so try and keep that in mind when doing gestures

    Duplicitious - Thanks for the feedback. Looking at that painting now, I am not sure if her hips are too small or if her
    shoulders are too wide. Lol... also I think her head might be a bit too big. Poop. I'll take a closer look at it later and see what
    is going on. Oh, as far as my figures are concerned... well, I am not particularly aiming for gesture at this point in time. Just
    trying to get proportions and general correctness down. When I do start working on gesture though, I will be sure to
    work a lot faster. Thanks again.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    First picture is a gift painting for someone of their character.

    Second are a bunch of pose drawings. I am trying to go a little faster now while still maintaining accuracy. 15 minutes each
    and a big improvement (time-wise) because it used to take me an hour just to do one.

    I'd like to keep pushing it down so that I spend like 10 minutes on each one. If everything goes according to plan I will probably
    move on to 3 minute gestures after. Oh yeah, and I should probably draw some men too.

    Poses referenced from kxhara @ deviantart

    That Buddhe picture is just priceless ( I couldn't stop laughing , I hope that doesn't offend you. It's awesome )and I also wanted to stop by and say that your artwork is pretty awesome too.

    But man your comment you left ... I couldn't stop smiling. Don't think I've ever been an inspiration to anyone

    Thanks a lot , it really means a lot.

    frankfrank - Thanks for stopping by. And of course I am not offended; it is meant to be lighthearted after all.
    I am glad that I could make your day.

    Izene - Thank you for the kind words!

    Kambei Shimada - Thanks! I'm probably going to start working more loosely pretty soon, but I'd still like to focus
    on correctness and efficiency.

    ------------------------------------------

    Some stuff from today.

    Still life of a chap stick on my desk. I really dislike this one but whatever.

    Also some tree trunk studies. Trying to focus on stroke economy but failing at it at this point.

    Finally, a photo study of Francoise Hardy. Focused on stroke economy again.

    lionheartGFX - Thanks, much appreciated!

    --------------------------------

    Here are some drawings from today. I didn't want to draw these so loosely but I've been having knuckle pain so I had to grip
    my pen pretty lightly to let my hand rest.

    Still struggling with still life paintings so I'm keeping it simple for now.

    Kweckduck - Mindblowing... wow, I think that's definitely a first. Thanks, it means a ton!

    ---------------------------------

    Some figure studies. I felt like working with value today.

    Finally, the perspective drawings are very elementary and I apologize for that. It has been a long time since I've studied
    perspective so I want to make sure I nail in the basics before moving on. These are all from my head.

    Damn, you study hard and your anatomy keeps getting better and better and making ME envy you. Now I must study harder than ever to catch up with you, watch out!

    r zanchetin - Thanks! Seeing you improve will probably make me want to improve more so we could end up in an
    awesome circle of improvement. I kind of like the sound of that.

    ---------------------------------------------

    More bodies and perspective. Honestly, I wanted to draw more than six but I was having trouble with a lot of these
    poses so this is all I could get done today.

    Poses reffed from kxhara @ dA

    The perspective practice was fun, but damn these things take a LOT longer than it might seem. Spent more than a
    couple of hours working on them.

    Wow, the fluidity of your figures is great! I really admire that you can catch so much movement in so few lines. However, a few of your female figures have really big pelvises and really tiny ribcages. I suppose it might be stylistic, (and I apologize if it is) but it feels off to me.

    Anyway, keep on being awesome!

    Clur - Thank you. As far as the figures go, well I don't think it is a stylistic thing... er well, at least I hope it isn't.
    You see, the model I have been using for almost all of these studies has a rather pear shaped figure. I am very glad you
    brought it up though because I need to find out if it is a stylistic issue or not, so I will try using more varied models from now
    on. Thank you for bringing it to my attention!

    Care - Awww, hehe thank you! I've been trying to get in the habit of drawing more.

    ------------------------------------------

    Well guys, I am sorry for the shit update today. I've been having random pains around my rib cage and my hand doesn't
    seem to be getting better which causes drawing to be quite annoying.

    I didn't want to be completely unproductive though, so I did some 5 minute gestures. In light of what Clur said, I decided to
    vary my models so I used about 4 or 5 different models here all with different body types.

    Poses reffed from stock by Marcus Ranum.

    Also did some really crappy circles in perspective. I found these quite difficult to freehand.

    Finally, a still life. Trying to slowly increase the difficulty with each painting.

    Posting an update because it has been a while. I don't even know where to begin because it feels like ages since
    I last visited.

    On an emotional level, last week was total shit. I kept experiencing extreme mood swings along with general self-hatred.
    It made drawing quite difficult; now, that is not to say that I didn't draw... because I did. I simply don't have much to
    post because I am too ashamed of the stuff I drew. Still not sure if everything turned out crappy because of emotions/stress
    or whether it was because I was drawing subjects I am unfamiliar with ... or both.

    Anyway, enough rambling. Here are some pictures that from last week that are the least crappy of the bunch.

    First, an unfinished photo study that I am not going to finish. Halfway through I realized I have no idea how to paint
    foliage so I am probably going to spend some time learning to draw plants and gain a better understanding of them.
    Reference by Cathleen Tarawhiti @ dA.

    Finally some 30 second gestures, a random bedroom from my head, and some enviro thumbnails.

    Oh yeah, the very last one is an extremely random sketch of some sort of creature using random shapes at first and
    then refining it. I have no idea wtf it is supposed to be... it was mainly just an exercise to loosen up. Lol.

    Psychobuddy - Thank you very much!

    Sorry for not updating yesterday, I had started a master study and I wasn't able to finish it until today.
    Well, I wouldn't call this particularly complete but in any case, this is as far as I want to take it.

    Man, loads of great studies here (and they're very clean too!). You're focusing on the essential and that's really good. Awesome. Keep these coming!



    ART. MORE. NOW.

    Icecold - Wow, thanks! Your comment really made my day. And yeah, I definitely plan on diversifying my SB.
    I think I got a little too caught up with anatomy for a while there, heh.

    Mr.Pryminista - Thank you very much - I will!

    Pete Hidalgo - Thanks!

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Okay first off I just want to apologize for not commenting in anyone's sketchbooks. Lately I just haven't
    been in a sociable mood and I haven't been very active on the site so yeah... sorry.

    And here is some stuff from today. The 30 second gestures are a pain in the arse but I think I'm getting a little
    bit better at them.

    I really want to start painting some enviros but MY GOD do I suck at drawing plants. New mission: go outside
    with my sketchbook and draw everything.

    The enviro of that house-thing sucks balls, I know. I'm kind of embarrassed of it but whatever.

    Hi there! Don't beat yourself too hard on those last 2 studies, they're actually quite good, they are just in the process of refining, you nailed the feeling / colours and now it's just patience.

    Wow you have an amazing sketchbook going here!! That master study is crazy good!! I see you pick up quick with perspective, im still trying to tackle that myself. Im going to do some draft views than put it in perspective like that one you did of that room. Your figures have so much life to them as well. Really solid stuff! Keep up the good work!!

    r zanchetin - Hey thanks, I really appreciate it. I definitely agree with you about details... I should probably
    focus on that some more.

    Joe777k7 - Thank you so much!

    -------------------------------------------

    One from earlier today. At first, I attempted some thumbnails but it wasn't going well. I ended up drawing simple
    master studies. No real focus on value, just trying to get down some general shapes and textures.

    Unfortunately, this is all that I was able to draw today.

    I'm so sorry! I have no real constructive criticisms but just.... wow! Your art and sketches are just. OuO I'm just, casually, staring at them. I can't wait to see you post more.

    Your figure studies are inspiring. How long does it take for you to finish one from #44?

    Randomeister - Haha, it's quite alright. Thank you very much!

    latus - I believe I spent anywhere from 12-20 minutes on each one so on average like 16 minutes. Thanks.

    DragonL - Thank you!

    ----------------------------------------------

    So I've decided to keep the whole Yao Ming theme going. Since this is my first post on page 3 (yay!) I decided to
    combine Yao Ming and Bob Ross. I hope that someday my attitude towards painting will be the same.

    Drew some more master studies of trees. Man, foliage is tough! Also, some 30 sec. gestures. I feel like I'm hitting
    a wall with anatomy but then again it is hard to judge oneself off of something that took 30 seconds.

    Finally, two screencap studies from Game of Thrones. At this point I am kind of failing at capturing likenesses. I will
    probably do some face studies to help address this problem.
