    Hi Dennis, so nice to get such positive comments, thank you! Although I am originally from Holland, I started studying physics in California, and might soon be moving to Italy to continue those studies because it's about a quarter of the price there.
    Tbh though, about the perspective stuff, I think the knowledge has been there for a long time, but recently I've been drawing more than ever so the skills are getting dusted off and refreshed a bit, and I think I'm simply trying a bit harder. I'm not a fan of drawing all the technical perspective lines when I just want to get an idea on paper, but recently it has been paying off a lot more in the end, in the beginning it's a chore to get the perspective right but once I'm done with that I can just relax and create and I end up much more satisfied with the final result.
    Thanks for the paintover, and though I realize it looks more sensible like that, I was trying to make the huts be more randomly positioned, since it's supposed to be a primitive village where nobody cares about urban planning. That's why I gave every hut a different vanishing point. I know something is still wrong so if you can figure it out, another paintover would be greatly appreciated!
    Ah California that's awesome! I understand you wanted all the huts to be angled a bit randomly but this does make the perspective a bit more complicated so I thought it might be better to simplify it a bit more to one point perspective. In that case when you give all the huts their own vanishing point because they're not perpendicular to one another you need to make sure that all those vanishing points still align on the same horizon line. In the overpaint you can see that some converging lines are crossing higher up than others, if you have multiple vanishing points they still always align on top of the horizon line, hope that helps!

    Soo, does that mean you hold one hand like this when talking?

    Thanks, I'll definitely be doing more of those, especially when I arrive in la bella Italia I expect I will have no shortage of subject matter to draw from life when I get to Florence, but that is still at least 3-4 months away unfortunately.

    Drawn out in the field, at Lake Mead. Had to finish the lower two flower studies at home from pictures because I was getting sunburnt...

    Great sketches, I have popped in her once and admired your bird on #2
    this time it's coincidence that I do it again. I love your studies I am
    not there with how you draw but really love your knowledge about shadow
    and light.

    Nice environments, they would however benefit a lot from more perspective practice

    Feel like I needed to take a break from drawing nearly every day, but I've also been busy with other projects, like making a website, writing, learning things. Back at it today with a google maps study of Brooklyn, NY.

    Woot-woot! Brooklyn!

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook thread, PhanThom-Art! I dig the on-site drawings from Lake Meade (I went there once ) . It's so fun to do traditional media, isn't it? Scanning a pain, though... You're taking pictures? Maybe I should do that... my picture-takin' skills aren't up to par, however.

    Anyway - great drawings! Keep'em up!

    Traditional is way more fun than digital Although sometimes I do miss color in my work as I don't have any kind of paint, just my trusty pencil and fineliner. I take pictures with my camera, but to me scanning sounds a lot easier.
    Btw never been to NYC before but can't wait. I wanna live there, do you live there?

    Not living in New York ^^; good environment studies! I actually agree that traditional media is more fun than digital media. XD

    Another anatomy/gesture study that I tried to give a more interesting angle and story than just a plain naked person. I think even with the exaggerated perspective the right arm is a bit too small, and I would love to get some feedback on how the clothes look.

    More GeoGuessr studies, always nice and stress-free. 4 Of them are practically thumbnail size because I wanted to practice getting the general idea on paper rather than all the details.

    Oh man #109 from above hit's me hard, still looking at your play with black

    as well, what kinda pen do you use? Great anatomy studies I keep forgetting

    Wow, thank you! Very inspiring comment. I use a staedtler 0.3mm fineliner. Personally I thought the drawing in post #111 looked a bit too messy

    I appreciate that messiness, let's replace that word with aliveness.
    I should get one of those and try to draw a landscape drawing.
    My sketchbook is filled with those clean vector drawings cause
    I am to lacy to scan my sketches. #113 amazinger too, very inspiring!

    "mooore please!"

    I think you are worrying too much with detail and need to focus on the basics. Understanding perspective, construction, values, etc. This will improve the quality of your drawings immensely.

    Detail will look great when the drawing foundation is great as well. Now it looks amateurish and carrying on drawing over and over like you already know won't lead to improving.

    Are you studying from any books or tutorials?
