    Hey! I saw you stopping by my sketchbook so I thought I return the favor. I really like that you try to get a lot of motion in to your sketches. It may be hard at the beginning but it's definiatly going to pay out. The most important thing is just to keep going and pushing. I hope you keep at it

    Nice studies and it's good to see you try to bring them into your imaginative pieces. Next try to get the proportions more accurate - a bit of learning perspective wouldn't go amiss. But most all just continue to enjoy drawing and don't bog yourself down with too many studies that might kill it.

    Papu: Thanks! Your stuff is amazing and so inspiring!
    V3T : Thanks man! I love your stuff and your progress is a huge motivator
    Zipfelzeus : Thanks!
    Black Spot : Thanks Perspective is one of my weaknesses among so many others, but I really enjoy studying and seeing the progress! And especially painting


    So Im back from the summer vacation here and finally got a decent place where I can paint and draw
    Alot of frustration and big discoveries in these months and loads of drawings drawn
    So update coming soon with all the sketchbook stuff that needs to be scanned


    For now is my first successful painting study from refrence, still super loose but still working on how to render tighter
    So many ''Aha!'' moments haha
    (Can anyone tell me how the colors look on your monitor? Unsure if mine is correctly calibrated)
    Edit: picture was a bit too big

    Soo finished scanning the pencils from the two sketchbooks I could find
    The ones done in the beginning of summer and the ones done recently vary a bit in quality haha so I'll try to put them in the right order.

    First just various no ref characters and sketches from the beginning of summer, they are really crap and I might take them down
    And then some studies and applying of studies I did fairly recently and some recent characters from last week or so.

    Trying to work on my pencils but they keep turning out pretty messy and the fact that most of those are done in a car during travels doesn't help haha.

    Great to see you back again. And great progress! Your last image with the figure looking up is actually quite nice. If I can help, you are suffering bad in the same area as me, the head. Do some studies and you will put another nail in the coffin. Keep working hard!
    I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!

    V3T: Thanks! Will do

    So my internet was down yesterday so I couldnt post this WIP of a study. Did some more work on it but Photoshop crashed so I guess I'll save more often haha.
    Schoolwork was eating up my time today so I couldnt keep working on this any further, will do tomorrow.
    Also did some pencil ''studies'' if you will with gas masks as a subject so I'll do a little more of those before scanning

    My internet has been pretty much out these past few days but hopefully its better now.

    First some guys in armor with no ref that I thought turned out pretty good.
    My faces need alot of work so I've been drawing more of them recently, still lost on eyes and hair so studies coming soon
    And a mini character and some gas mask studies that failed for the most part haha.. elipses are hard

    My internet has been out again but seems to be in at the moment so I scanned this real quick to upload.
    A technician is coming tomorrow to fix the modem so more frequent uploads hopefully haha

    Just a samurai type of character, need to study armor to get some interesting designs into my characters
    Scans turn out so dirty somehow, I'll try and fix it in the next one

    Don't take down anything, never apologize for learning. We all start at the beginning, and make a mess along the way - that's what you're supposed to do. You have to give yourself permission to make bad drawings, that's where the learning happens.
    Bad proportions - awesome, now you have something to work on. bad perspective- awesome, there's exercises for that. I found it helpful to work with box-men proportion / perspective combo.
    It can also help to draw boxes over the masses, torso, pelvis, head - it will help your brain sort out the planes of the weirdy shapes.

    for messy pencils, Col-erase are really good, the blue and red are great to work with, green is meh - the purple is a little gritty. Otherwise just using harder pencils will help if you find them a bit smudgy. Personally I like bic pens for drawing on the train / car - they have a good range in line weight - less smudgy, and you don't get tempted to erase. erasing just wastes time you could be sketching

    Anyways- keep up with all the studies- they'll all add up

    Happy sketching.

    Rhubix: Wow thanks for taking the time to write that!
    Haha yeah I sometimes forget the point of starting the sketchbook at all which is to improve. Gonna try those box-men figures!


    So here's a rough WIP of a character Im working on right now
    Hopefully it will turn out to be the first finished piece I make
