    Harbinger: haha thank you

    Edit: also does anyone know a good place/book whatever to learn how to render digitally? I want that painterly look, i tried doing some practices yesterday but failed miserably :0
    I've picked up a few of these myself, there's some pretty good stuff out there.

    Then there are all the ImagineFX workshops that you could potentially pirate... but the best teacher of all is discipline and observation.

    great studys on the muscles! I gotta work a bit with pen to, I remember always drawing with a ballpoint pen and choosing it over pencil as a kid. Keep up the good work!

    harbinger, I did copy that list to my own sketchbook, to easily be able to find it. Hope you do not mind.

    Please, excuse me for the possible errors in my English.

    wow your hand studies look exaclty like mine. we must be using the same anatomy book. I agree wish shahan about moving over to digital. it's what you're going to be using for concept art so it'd be better to move on now

    edit: thanks for the links harbinger. ive been having the same problem so those links came in handy

    Wow page 3... i dont feel i deserve it since i only updated once on the last page...

    harbinger thank you for those i actually knew about most of them, but i tihnk i just forgot all the basics and donts btw i love sinixdesign but hes getting lazy recently.... really disappointing, his background story is actually what inspired me to draw every day... i used to barely draw every week if even

    steeliebob: thank you man, yeah ive actually almost always stayed away from pen cus i was intimidated, specially some of the pens i have which are really loose

    gamersgene: what hand studies are you specifically talking about my good sir?? i mainly use bridgman for hands, and actual refs but i havent done many hand studies lately

    anyways guys ill update maybe later or 2moro, i thought of this cool creature concept that ill work on so expect from that

    Cool sketches dude, do you mind me asking what it's like using a brush pen? I've always wanted to try, but you know...I'm lazy.

    Hey man, I'll tell you something, your sketches show a lot of potential. What you need to focus on right now is keeping at it. The worst thing you can do is stop drawing, so try and get yourself into some good sketching habits and just keep at it!

    Thanks and well its like using a marker but with a skinnier but longer tip that enables you to have broad and thin strokes, they are neat when trying to cover large areas but not the best if youre only gonna use a brush pen for lineart...

    You can get them at michaels or some other art place they tend to have a b on the cap, i reccomend the prismacolor brand, i bought a different brush pen from some oter brand and the tip sucked it split....

    JoeS: thanks man i really appreciate it, yeah if it wasnt for work i would draw everyday, but sometimes its hard when youre tired y'know? Its easy to be lazy specially when youre a teen @.@

    Im going to try to push out more digital stuff and some
    More imaginitive stuff from
    Now on just be patient guys!

    okay so i have returned sorry, wow 2 months without posting a thing, i have been keeping up with your sb's though ;D
    so i havent really been doing too much, just every other day or something like that

    although recently i have been doing alot more digital well just last weekend but still, the pencil sketches are the most recent, the pen ones are from after my last update and etc... i think ive gotten a little better any opinions??

    oh and the pics with the pyramids and etc are for my concentration for ap art!

    p.s. i love the new attachment manager

    Nice. lookin good dude. making strides. keep pushing more complicated studies. all the info is on the internet. just look and learn.

    and yeah... i have an intuos4 medium sized tablet so I'm really grateful for that. what do you have again? nothing really you can do sadly... although definitely set it to 'force proportions' and draw from the shoulder and try drawing more zoomed in since that will make stylus movements exaggerated, so to speak... y'know?

    mess with zooms and the scale of what your digital canvas is at... thats my advice... save up for a large tablet... Large looks like the best to me... but you also need the desk space. >_<

    A tablet does take some getting used to doesn't it, especially a bamboo! xD (Egads, carpal tunnel bonanza!)
    Anyway, it looks like you're making some progress so I'll leave you to it. Oh, and if you ever want a real cheap alternative to a Wacom tablet, Monoprice sells a 10x6 with almost twice the LPI of your standard bamboo tablet and 24 programmable hotkeys which will run you about $50 depending on shipping, they've even got a 12x9 for a good bargain... The drivers are pretty stubborn at first but it's actually pretty great for the price.
