    Mosen's Journey

    Hello everyone!

    I know there are a million and 1 same stories out there so I wont say mine again to you. Just thought I'd upload stuff most days as I really want to improve. I enjoy drawing, dont have much experience so I decided to look around online. I found drawingtutorialsonline.com and started studying since dec 2012, im running low on money and the only way to keep a forum sketchbook there is to pay so gonna switch to here, plus i really want to get into conceptual art.

    My end goal is to be a great concept/design artist, creating/re-designing, characters, landscapes, and whatever really. Thats as far as I can narrow down my desire at the moment! So for me getting into drawing has been a fairly new decision... since 2011 but I only REALLY decided I wanna do it as a career one day late 2012 so started really drawing more often in december Hope thats not too boring and enough for you to understand me for now!


    Anyway, Im a beginner and would LOVE anyones help and guidance to get better. Here are a few things I have been posting this month on drawingtutorialsonline.com and today I decided I'm terrible at perspective and I have read constantly on here that foundations are essential so I wanna try to get them right from the beginning!Name:  IMG_1701.jpg

    so I'm gonna try and post every day but if I don't actually post I will still be drawing something at least

    did some more perspective... I will be on this for a WHILE, wanna really grasp it before I even bother doing anything else... dunno but something tells me perspective comes first, and I dont really understand it. Plus it takes me AGES (like an hour and a half) just to do 4 little sketches of cubes! is that normal?? maybe its coz I dont use a ruler or making some kind of grid takes a while... anyway

    I mate and welcome! Thank you for check out my SB. Like I see your "initial" studies are relevant! Lovely lines and subjects.
    Perspective is at the basics like studies on forms and values. It's normal at the biginning to take some time to understand what you're doing, particularly with the study of perspective and forms, even values. If you understand gradually how light and shadows works on the simple surfaces, the rest is about to apply this method on more complex forms. The brain and the repetition should do the tricks! Really not bad for the beginning! Keep on going!

    I also thought I should do something from imagination. Im TERRIBLE at it and am quite shy to post it up but here we go, I must get over it and push forward regardless of what it turns out to be...

    dunno what I was drawing but it was some kinda dog seal thing...

    and I did a few gesture drawings and chose 1 to draw a random figure from my mind using it as a kinda skeleton or inspiration.

    hiya, Mosen!
    my favorite ones are the rhino dude because of the form lines. At the beginning at FZD school you seem to draw them all the time to get into the form of an object.
    Try them out more often, it's easier to apply light on an object when one fully understands its form.
    Also, the seal is pretty nice, just keeping perspective in mind it looks a lot more 3-dimensional and real. If you aimed for parallel hind legs, its right one looks too far behind. But there's a nice flow i its body.

    what about drawing on grey paper and using a neutral tone, highlighter and a darker pencil? It's a lot easier to get objects read better because it's completely up to you where to put highlights in what extent.

    Keep up being a hard worker

    thanks for the comments! I bought some toned paper, its light brown... I will have a go and see how I like it at some point!

    I did a good warm up and line practice today. Got it from a guy called Peter Han, he does a dynamic sketching course Which i REALLY wanna do. The first lesson is on youtube for free and I thought its a great way to practice confident lines and those damn elipses and circles!

    random question. I know I should draw a bit more from life. So I was thinking about doing self portraits from time to time... but does the mirror flatten the image like a photo or is it a valid life drawing?
    maybe I should stick to drawing others?

    Realised I haven't done any kind of drawing from life in about 2 weeks! Thought "ok, I'll draw my hand".... horrible... tried loads and none of them came out how I hoped but as the day went on I did get a little better... I'm too impatient sometimes! anyway, here they are... I'll have to draw a little something from life each day to keep improving observation and form.

    I didn't get much time to draw yesterday but I did do a little gesture sketches from the internet. Had to work today but when I was done started on Loomis, figure drawing for all its worth (for some reason the line drawings are hard to copy) but informative

    I work as a dancer so when I am not dancing sometimes I get to watch the others dance around and so I tried my best to follow one of them dancing and sketching as she went. Was really hard coz she was never still of course but fun none the less!

    I set myself a little task each week starting today, to draw 10 random animals from the internet in thier most basic forms in an attempt to better understand form and 3d space. Not good at it so I'm gonna practice!

    and then this was to push the little figure drawing I have done into muy imagination and see what I can do. Just line but at least I'm retaining something of the body

    Had some fun... keep getting hung up on comparing myself to others who are amazing artists already. So I decided to just stop judging myself and draw for fun and to simply improve my own personal level... tried a fun game to draw a beetle from photo reference then try to draw it from a different angle... i think I failed coz it doesnt look right but it was fun

    then a friend of mine said, "draw a cube and add to it, take away from it and shade it". so I did something... (took about an hour and a half!!) but I learned through the process...

    well those are my offerings for today... oh and one question...

    I imagine drawing with something permanent (not a pencil) sometimes can be a lesson in learning to see/think about the lines before putting them down? Is it a good idea to try drawing with a pen/ink?

    for some reason I find it crazy hard to copy Loomis' drawings but maybe thats part of the journey... and a little life sketch I didn't quite have time to finish in my lunch break. The proportions are a little off but at least I know. Does anyone know maybe a good exercise to practice proportion? If not I will just draw much more from life and do the classic "hold your pencil out" trick
