Buxu´s Sketchbook - sunrise and sunsets
I decided to get serious about art recently.
I´m interested in getting a good solid artistic base, I had been doing color practices but I start to feel it´s a little useless without some basic knowledge, that´s why I decided to leave color aside and start with human anatomy. I will use books, photos and the mirror to practice
Feel free to give advices or critics, anything will be appreciated
edit: changed attached file
oh my god this is so old already, seems like from other lifes i had, who is this!!!!

the faces took me toooo long to finish them and the quality is horrible for the time I spent.
ugh argh, gah... tomorow more and better
the poses are from posemaniacs, 60 seconds each, and in the faces the first page is from imagination.

More draws. this time I was be able to be cleaner and faster yay!
the draws include exercises from giovanni civardi. draw from life, photos and poses from posemaniacs (60 seconds). The last face is from imagination.
I think tommorrow I will spend more time searching for tips to learn anatomy faster. Just copying feels like that isn´t enough.
By the way, does anyone know why somethimes I can´t attach images with the attach manager? there are limits or something?
keep it up ... you can also search for threads that will make you know each of the things you need to know in order for you to improve, there are lot and lots of subjects here to keep you going!
Nevermindjoker: thank you, I will keep it up
Yesterday I saw a lot of posts but only found a few things related with learning anatomy fast, it seems that doing from imagination can be a good idea. And I got some books, like the human figure from Vanderpoel but I don´t get anything
For me he´s english it´s just too... english -_-
I think a book for kids would be better lol
And sorry for the bad quality, that´s the work from 2 days and it would be a pain scan everything.
These studies are beautiful. some of the faces look wonky?
Deepinonespersona: thank you and yeah my faces are wonky, I have to practice moarrrr.
Ahhg... today wasn´t my best day, I overslept and felt tired
But! this gave me the chance to make some exploration, I found some anatomy books that I understand better. And I found a fantastic thing. A place here in madrid where ppl gather together to draw real persons, in real life, by our own eyes, it´s just 1 day a week 2 hours but it´s free I´m so excited, really, I´m going to know artists and ppl like me
About today work, the first 2 pages are from imagination.
This is the work of two days.
The first 5 images are drawings from life, it was a lot of harder then what I thought. But the musicians were moving a lot T.T but it was fun, they were playing music and we were drawing them, arrrrt everywhere = fun , 15 min for each one.
The 4 and 5 image is my little brother hehe.
hey love seeing the level of commitment!
definitely consider picking up a couple of bridgeman anatomy books to get more of an idea of facial/body anatomy
your gestures have great movement but they're lacking in terms of anatomy so perhaps try and do some slower studies with more focus on form and mass instead of outlines
keep up the great work! at this rate you're gonna improve so fast!
Duplicitious: Your words make me feel more motived, thank you!
I´m defenitly gonna work on those longer poses and books, thx for the great advice
Today there is not too much to show, just a few poses from life and refs. I needed to solve some things, and tommorrow the same -_-
And this heat isn´t help either... bluff it´s just too much, I can´t resist an hour without drinking fresh water.
I must... defeat... heat...
When you think you resolved your troubles, new troubles appear.
There is not too much today due to personal matters, I need more organization in my life.
This was made day 30 - day 1
I will post day 2 nor after this.
Yesterday studies. I can’t show what I did today it's too late to scan.
hm I think the poses are giving some results, first page is from imagination, it´s the first time I made poses like that from imagination so in some way I’m happy but at the same time I´m not so happy, I would like to evolve faster.
I started to draw weapons a long time ago, artifacts and weapons are what I like to draw the most and some day I hope to be really good at it, so from today on I decided to draw artifacts and weapons more often. the first 2 are from imagination but with partial reference (the shield it´s inspired in leviathan ffVIII).
Oh and the 3ş and 4ş are self portraits.
there is also excercises from loomis, from imagination and poses.
Today I didn`t did too much, felt very unmotivated at the morning but then I started to see mindcandyman sketchbook and it was amazing! I spent almost the whole day watching that thread 0.0
But I don’t regret it, was awesome
You can see a lot of different stages of one person´s life in a day. And he´s improvement too of course.
So if you hadn´t seen that thread go now, you will love it I promise. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=870
About todays work: first is me from life, second are poses from imagination, and then more life.
