    Hello,

    I've decided to create a new sketchbook because I didn't draw for over half a year and the last one became a mess

    Hoping for some useful advice and tips

    my last three photo studies:







    and some pencil practice:

    I think more fundamental studies is what you need buddy. Gotta make sure you got a good strong foundation in drawing before you jump into paint. Keep working hard!

    Hej mate, you made some really awesome progress in a short time (even considering your latest brake).
    These portraits looks better, and better. Just keep it up, and don't make any more brakes for god sake!

    Games of thrones ftw! Did you read the books already? Listening audiobook while drawing works really nice. (Just finished listening Dance of Dragons)

    Ja bym sie tam nie przejmował zaleceniami, że trzeba być super hiper z rysunku, żeby mˇć wskoczyć w malarstwo. Można i tak, ale mnie uczyli żeby caly czas i rysować i malować.
    Ta warstwa\maska czarno biała się przydaje, żeby sprawdzać sobie jak praca by wyglądała wyłącznie w walorze. Feng Zhu z tego często korzysta.

    You think so? That's awesome then

    I'll try to not make any longer brakes this time.

    Hmm, not all of them yet, the last one I read is the first volume of part 3. I'll have to buy the next one. And the show is airing in 5 days!!

    Hmm, maybe you're right but I feel good practicing in pencil so I think that I'll do as you said, both digital and pencil.

    I was on a festival during the weekend so I couldn't draw, yesterday I drew sth in pencil, not much but I'll try to keep going with Loomis for a while at least



    and I want to participate in this week's CHoW, even if I'm 2 days late, especially because I really like the topic this time

    ah and btw, fix the link in ur signature, after they switched servers urls look different

    Hey man! nice start. As V3T said, you should keep working the fundamentals. I would suggest you learn constructive anatomy, either check into Loomis and Bridgman. This will really help you to understand form and get better at painting. I also think you should draw more in pencils, and try to do value renders. For me this has been the best way of learning to paint, by being able to "paint" with pencil. It's very hard in the beginning because you have to think differently than you're used to, but once you start to understand values things will fall into place.

    Keep it up! looking forward to see more

    Heyya! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!
    People have already been giving you good advice. I would do some loomis, I would also look into riven phoenix, he is very good.

    The main thing that I would suggest to you is to try painting in grey scale.
    It is much easier to learn to paint without having to worry about color at the start.
    You can create forms and learn how to light objects easier this way.
    A lot of really good people do this, so it isn't like a noob technique or anything either.

    Good luck and keep up the good work!

    @DefiledVisions: thanks for the advice, as you can see in my latest pencil sketches I'm already working with Loomis' book, "Drawing the Head and Hands". I'll do more value studies with pencil, sounds like a good thing to do.

    @greyskill: I've never looked into that riven pheonix, I'll have to check him out. I'd go for only gray scale paintings, but I want to work on my color skills too, since earlier I was only color picking and couldn't color anything properly, so I kinda focus more on colors than on values atm, but I'll make sure to go back to values when I achieve sth in colors
    Thanks!

    I decided to participate in ChoW for the first time but my shitty pentagram tablet died ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td-rtqG0EWk you can see more of those random lines nearer the end of the video) and I just ordered a Wacom one, but I'm pretty sure it won't arrive in time to let me finish this for ChoW, it's a shame because I liked where this was going, I hope I'll have motivation to finish it when I get my new tablet, expect more pencil for a few days





    (the base human figure took me the most time, but I'm quite happy with the result)

    Promising for now. Waiting for more updates to comment more on where it's heading.

    About studying Loomis, I find Loomis to be great in his explanations and ways in how he draws stuff. His technique is amazing. He's like the stepping stone for all beginning artists or at least that's my view. Some like Loomis, and some dislike him.

    Vilppu , Bridgman , Hogarth . Be sure to check these guys out also. Do some figure drawing, some more gesture drawing , focus on planes and flow and form and value. These are the fundamental things that matter.

    I wish you the best in your journey.

    As for his figure drawing techniques I don't like them very much but I find his head/face teachings pretty nice so far, I'll check those other guys after I finish with Loomis.

    For now I'm only focusing on heads

    I had a strong desire to draw a naked lady, and so I did, now when I look at the drawing I see that her right tit should be a little lower, dum

    and the misplaced lips, I noticed them during the drawing tho, just decided to leave them like this to not mess the face up even more

    Hey, good stuff so far, I'm going to echo everyone and stress the importance of fundamentals. I can't help but notice you are painting shadows with pure black in your portraits, try not to do that as it takes away color and dulls your painting.
    Keep at it!

    Heyya,

    Pencils are looking good!
    Maybe it would be nice to try some darker pencils to get a wider range.
    I like the warrior girl in #20! She has really cool armor, and a nice face. =]

    I hope that you are still practicing, and I hope to see you back
