    Long time no see CA.org ! The site was acting up once again so naturally updates have been scarce. Here's what I've been up to lately.

    Studies of my own hand. I really need to get back into life drawing because I haven't done it for months.

    Tried painting this Lego sphere thingy my friend gave me as a Christmas present. Failed miserably.

    A sketchbook page that I'm most pleased with though it took ages to complete. It has everything: composition, story, figures, faces, hands etc. The inspiration behind the page is basically things I've experienced in my life in the past few weeks. Once again everything's mostly from imagination. Don't ask about the Leia buns... haha

    sweet sweet improvement, i see you are starting to be less shy about your drawings i love that man! word of advice, draw squares or rectangles and then draw inside of those with a mindset in, as you said Composition, story and also very important how you can catch the viewers eye longer, study different strong compositional shapes (triangles, squares) and also read a bit on the golden rule and the law of thirds this are all very important if you wish to make pieces that put across your ideas and what you are trying to communicate with us (the viewers) this is still just scratching the surface but try to always have a mindset of what you want to say or convey in a drawing (tho i can see that you already know of this but further application its going to help you lots!) cant wait for more ozark! change it up a bit try doing some landscapes (i know the sole word "landscape" is scary as fuck) but they are really helpful in teaching composition and story through simple shapes Lets work harder man!!! if you are at a blank as of what im talking about here go to Dave rapoza's youtube channel and watch "critters" wich is a paintover project of his i which he covers this and alot more i really recommend it to ya!

    Hello ozark ,I skimmed through your sb and there is definitely an improvement,I really like that you are doing a lot of self portraits and
    its cool that you indicate major shapes and values loosely in those studies,maybe do one where you try to define more exact shapes and edges-
    squinting really helps with that.

    keep at it!

    lionheartGFX Once again your reply is full of useful advice. Landscapes/enviros are something that I should get into because they would be something different from my usual stuff.

    GrayPersona Thanks dude. The SP month was rough at times but it just went to show that if I set up a goal for myself I'm able to reach it. Haven't thought about squinting, thanks for the tip.

    Today's still life. Tube of paint. 1.5 hours.

    knees are a hard subject man, you have to study the bones first, then the ligaments and tendons and then the muscles to really paster the knees and overall all the joints in the body, this comes in time theres no rush tho its really you good you take interest in this things.

    on a different note, that clothing study is good but i think you should push the clothing further what i mean about that its, the texture of the fabric, is it shiny? is it opaque? how does it fold (and the anatomy of folds and how are they constructed)? is it loose around the body or very very tight? all o this questions should pop your mind when studying clothing, do more of everything i say hahaha! or rather as do as much as you can while having fun, no one wnats to kill their joy for drawing by doing it too much haha

    lionheartGFX You bring up some valid points concerning the clothing study. Looking at it now it looks kinda flat. I'll try to keep all of the things you mentioned in mind when I do my next study. You're right; anatomy is like an obsession for me. I'm genuinely interested in how the body is constructed and how it works. In other news, my spring life drawing classes began today which rules.

    zou Glad you like 'em. I seriously need to get back to portrait drawing and draw other people than myself. I wonder if my sister is up for some MTV marathons... haha

    More kneecap studies from imagination, Bridgman and life. I know it, they're boring as fuck but at least I won't end up like the Art Newbie Owl. Gonna apply these on my next sketchbook page.

    Those are some great looking kneecaps! You've reminde me that I need to get out my Bridgman book again, sitting on the shelf for too long now! Ya, they can be boring, but think of how you can apply what you've learnt from them to your drawing skills I look forward to seeing the next page! I wish I could give you more constructive feedback, but if I think of anything I'll come back and post it for you! Just keep doing what youre doing, I can see the improvement as I looked through your sketchbook.

    Nice sketchbook ozark! I love your dedication to figure studies, it's really inspiring!
    Also very nice amount of self-portraits. Should do those myself too but I just feel too shy in that subject matter.
    Keep up this dedication and you'll surely get far!

    Nice sketchbook, #151 Donnie Darko? Anyways, I think you have nice line value and handle contour really well. As for the clothes study you did, lionheartGFX advice was golden. The material is very important. I think it makes for a stronger image. Also, it's funny but to me initially I almost didn't notice that the thigh is kind of cut into by the rear one. The girls form is nice and appealing, I was distracted so you did a good job on that. Keep it up man!

    I don't update for a day and I get tons of replies. Nice.

    Satu You should try doing SPs even if you feel they're hard. My very first SPs looked atrocious but I gradually got better.

    Oushua-J Care to elaborate on the Donnie Darko reference ? I'm gonna be extra careful on my next clothing study.

    GrayPersona Thanks for the tip, dude.

    I love this quote!! "All artists are prepared to suffer for their work, but why are so few prepared to learn to draw?" It's so true ^_^. As a cartoonist, I love breaking hearts and telling aspiring cartoonists how many hours of life drawing I did in college.
    I like your knee studies- one thing I haven't done enough of I'm sure. & your butt post in 121 made me laugh - keep it up!

    Rhubix You're not the only one who's fond of my quote. Studying from life will always make your pieces more believable whether or not your "style" isn't realism. And yeah butts are always important.

    Moar fashion. Don't know if I did any better than last week. From now on Sundays will be dedicated to clothing studies.

    hey! thx for dropping by my sketchbook

    i like your studies. i'd love to give you advice on how to quickly improve your drawing skills but i am a slow learner myself (started 3 years ago and i still suck), so i guess you just have to keep drawing and you'll become super-duper-awesome-sauce in no time

    i'll check back more often on your progression!

    Eric-Anthony Imma keep grinding ! Don't be so hard on yourself, you're doing great. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Schnitts Awww thanks. You definitely should start studying some anatomy.

    I was too tired to update yesterday but now I'm back with some fresh life drawings. This time we had a pregnant woman as our model which was pretty interesting to say the least.

    Quick poses done in pen. Had fun exaggerating her stomach.

    The longer pose. It's a shame that I can't take these drawings to a higher finish due to time constraints. In the end I decided to focus on her stomach because I figured you don't often get to draw naked pregnant women.

    It was a good idea to choose an area to focus on in the life drawing, you really started to pick out how the light was on her body. I hated time contraints in life drawing as well, but hopefully it'll mean you get quicker at creating the drawings. I like how you caught the action of the poses in your gestures as well!

    Spudonkey Hehe thanks for the lolz.

    GrayPersona Will do, thanks.

    Spirit Glad you like 'em. The place where I do these life drawings also offer 6-hour long drawing marathons which takes care of the time problem. Unfortunately they only organize these sessions twice a year.

    My sad attempt at practicing legs using the Hard Flat brush. I'm sorry.

    Long time no see CA.org. Spent the weekend in Helsinki so that's why I haven't been updating.

    More headz with Loomis. Tried to make these look more polished than the ones on the last page. This is also my 100th sketchbook page !
