    Herionz's madness "A thousand days of discipline..."

    Hi, I'm a self-taught wannabe illustrator/concept artist, also interested in the fields of animation and 3D modelling, I've been drawing for 2 years so far but just line, gesture from photos or life. And just this year I decided to go crazy and work as hard as I can, without any art instruction on my back besides what I'm teaching myself from books and I read/hear from others, so any help would be warmly welcomed because I'm not really sure about what I'm doing.

    I'm really messy with my workflow, I might need a little bit more of structure, I apologize for that. I'm also jumping between areas, but right now I'm kinda focusing on working over colour/tone and form.

    The title of the topic is because I set my long term goal to a thousand days to become acceptable in quality and design. Started the 3 of January, 2013.

    Some things I've been doing this past days.

    I also draw on paper with pencils and ball-pen, will try to upload some scans or photos from it some other time.

    I'll keep studying.

    Some perspective exercise, have to work on cast shadows, sun rays, and such. And some random studies, wanting to jump over face expression.Also I have to do more paintings, I struggle a lot with mass drawing and paintings.

    Holy Mother of God! Again I say, shot for taking the time to check out my measely sketchbook Dam man, the quality and Variety of your studies are blowing my mind and it's refreshing to see someone building such a strong foundation! Not to kiss too much ass but your understanding of colour and form in such a short period of time makes me realise how much I need to put my ass into gear- cheers for the inspiration keep this up and oaks will be throwing money at you

    Um as for critiques I have none! since you're skills rape my own but I'll tell you what helped me render tone in pencil since dammit your advice was golden But if you gave it a go I rate you'd own me, but what I do is first render the entire image as best I can in a lighter lead (HB) and then I'll render over it again with a 2B lead, which is bloody obvious but I found by initially rendering out the entire image lighter and then starting again with a darker lead to create a smoother look also very important is to render the entire form and only leave paper exposed on the absolute white hilights, also I found studying the way Miles Johnston rendered his earlier figure studies very helpful. Hop I didn't waste your time there

    Please don't stop man- I'll be subscribing .

    @Chris, @cmw, thank you very much!.

    Studying a little bit more facial expression, and some dynamic quick poses I did trying to help someone, I'm considering studying anatomy from dynamic/gestural poses next.

    I wanted to start studying masters, hoping it helps me, so I decided to do some Sargent study. I find really hard to keep everything inside the right proportions by painting something from scratch, also still having troubles with predicting how planes shift values, maybe I might have to start studying drapery.

    3hrs, not even close to finished, lot's of mistakes but the good thing is that my color/value perception is becoming better (in comparison with a month ago). Also had a lot of fun spotting some of the accents that he uses.

    duuuude your so bloody proactive! loving the expression studies, your quick shading of the face is very effective- shows your understanding of the form is flipping strong and in your use of line in the gestural demonstration- very descriptive, again, shows you know your anatomy, basically I'm saying that it's clear you know your stuff! Would love to see some original stuff applying some of the studies you've done, I rate your ready and if not- I'll be back to boost your confidence again! should also say- shweet Sargant study you are ballsy with your colour, I'm far too impatient to do that. Keep trucking dude, amped for your next post
