    Thanks for stopping by my Sketchbook! I appreciate it! And you're right, I need to do some still lives! I've been thinking about doing a banana...

    Are they almonds? Your nuts? Because that's what they look like! Just try really hard to draw what you see. And take it slow.

    Ich spreche keine deutch... I think I wrote that right... I, however, do not speak German... But, I translated what you said, and I THINK I understood it for the most part... But sometimes the translators do not work very well and I want to make sure I understand what you said! lol.

    yes these are almonds

    you dont speak German. i think i was misled by your locationinfo. i just wrote that i would like to get in closer contact with fellow artists about my skill level

    thanks for your comment i will try to keep it slow, and draw more with my Eyes, as i said these nuts are just out of my league right now too many details where One might get lost

    Nice job! I would say that you might want to start with the basics such as anatomy studies if you haven't done them already?
    I'm also trying to learn how to paint and draw during my non-office hours. I found quick anatomy studies from http://www.posemaniacs.com/ really helped my to warm up and start "seeing shapes and formes as they really are, not how I think they are in my head" (if that makes any sense?).

    Draw a few 90 sec poses every day and soon you will get better at shape and form in all your objects You can do it!

    Nextra - thanks for your reply indeed i already did some studies until somebody told me its better to start with stills, because from "live" you will learn shapes better. I seriously dont know whats the "better" way. I think i will try to vary a little more

    Hey there, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, I thought I'd return the favour
    Don't worry too much about whether your work is "bad" or not, just keep working! We all have to start somewhere, just keep going and you'll improve there isn't a correct way of doing things, so if you want to do some stills, do them! If you want to work on anatomy or anything like that, that's fine too. I like your last landscape post, I love how you added highlights to the tops of the silhouettes, it really brings them out.

    I noticed what you said about the nuts being a lot of detail for you right now, if thats how you feel just focus on shapes until you've got them down and can draw things easily from life, then tackle it again. It'll be interesting how it turns out the second time you try drawing them! Obviously I'm far from expert myself, so I'm trying to follow this advice too!

    I think the best thing to do is just keep drawing and doing what you're doing Keep up the good work!
