Thanks ja1307. Indeed my proportions is not so correct. Your right, the eyes are too big, and the forms are not always anatomically right. I'll definitely follow your advices. I think Loomis book Successful Drawing is useful especially for perspective and anatomy construction based on mash, not for forms specifically. I have to learn construction first then move for forms... not based on Loomis. Better follow Michael Hampton's Figure drawing-design and invention.
Hey man, nice perspective studies. For the head i suggest to learn basic proportions it help tremendously. Love the cafe, keep posting, cheers.

eclip-se: Thanks man! I'll follow the advice.
Xcarbon: Thank you for support mate! And your SB is great!
Some new works. Perspective. Some anatomy studies and forms study.
I know it's boring but here it is a simple study for anatomy positions. Today I worked enough... but I feel a little empty. It seems to me that I'm at no point in this study. Maybe I mistake something, or I don't study well what I see or what I read... don't now. Tomorrow will be better I hope.
Great perspective studies
keep them up
New drawings. I'm fixed with the face... have to go on...
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook my friend, I see that you have posted mostly your great studies.
keep it up my friend

A coffee cup... near my drawing tablet.
I like your studies, you've got great attention to detail, and I see you're taking some lessons from Michael Hampton's book for anatomy?
There's actually some nice improvement since last time I checked your sketchbook (which wasn't long ago! So quick improvement, well done!) Keep going, and push farther

Mark Twain Rulez! He was so damn right! Found the Vilppu manual. I'll look it tomorrow.

good perspective and execution in the cup and the shoe, still lifes will always help you take your eye to the next level, and if you are able to see better it means you can see whats wrong with YOUR lines and slowly start to work differently, its all about thinking on how to take what you see and put it in the paper, dont be afraid to let some loose details sometimes less is more, look around the exclusive sketchbook section there are some great people there, look at their quick figure drawings and compare them to yours, there is alot you can learn from how other people do things, i specially did, and if you want to get into enviroment and level design i encourage you to look into jack hamms enviroment and landscaping books, one last suggestion before i go my friend, make yourself a schedule so even if you can only draw 1 or 2 hours a day you can squeeze those 2 hours to make the most results, personally i believe its best to mantain an equal effort in: Drawing from life, drawing from your head, and drawing from photos, now you could only do 2 of those or all three but atleast do two because if you dont it will be harder afterwards bring it on man if you can keep a good pace i assure you you will be alooot better in, say 6 months keep it up!
For today I present:
Plate I, 1 from Charles Bargue's Manual
...and an environment from Fallout 3
That is real nice work man, those eyes look very 3 dimensional, and that fallout environment is beautifully done, you're getting there
Looks like you're progressing a lot Lucarky! You're beginning to really draw what you see rather than what you think you see all these studies on life that you've been doing like the cup of tea and those drawn from references show great improvement from when you started this thread! I see you've been having trouble with eyes though this is an area you obviously are still stuck in the symbolisation area but it seems you know this and in your last post you've began to story the anatomy of the eye more with the structure studies, which is great to see!
Knowing how things are made up will help you in the long run! I would suggest from your previous eye sketchs/studies that to remember that the eye ball itself is as it suggests a ball so the shading is the same as any other ball but you only see a small part of that ball. Also the white of the eye is hardly ever white itself unless harsh reflections are going on but they are normally occuring within the iris itself. Just kept that in mind!
Keep up the studies and the good work!
Sorry crew, but today I produced only this. Unfortunately I have 39 degrees of fever... So I have to go under the blanket... Hope to regain in no time.
New updates. Copy from Charles Bargue. I'm rather satisfied from this studies. Hope to go on like this!
And another Bargue PLATE. The third now. Tomorrow go for the fourth and some study on environment and other... Hope having time to do so.
Bargue again PLATE I, 4
And a drawing from reference. I'm trying to follow the Bargue hatching, working for forms of black and white then modeling the half-tones. Obviously it's not finished yet, want to draw it carefully.
PS: sorry for the bad quality. I absolutely have to buy a scanner this week.
Regaining from Christmas dishes...
... continue with the girl. Still WIP. Suggestions appreciated.
If anyone can suggest some manuals on environment and image composition it would be appreciated. Thanks.
These days I made a little step further, and tried to do a digital painting following a tutorial.
Ithink it turned out real good. If you think that's my first time doing a digital environment painting, I'm really satisfied.
Done in about 6 hours.
Hey Lucarky, thanks for stopping by in my sb. You have some nice stuff, specially in this 2nd page. Keep it up
