    First life drawing session! Pretty chill overall it was one long pose over 6 hrs (with breaks, of course). The life model, who was also a teacher complimented me on the fact I kept looking up and observing. He said his students pretty much just look up once and hide behind their canvas.

    Hey Dominicque! I'm liking what I'm seeing here! Great job with all the studies and I can see how it's all coming together for ya'! Few suggestions looking through these: Seems like you're having difficulty with the torso when the figure is sitting down and such. I think you could benefit from Proko's robo-beans and twisting bean videos! Those exercises help you visualize how exactly the twisting works. For the proportions, I'd say maybe take a step back or just work from the basic volumes more. Also, careful on the eye spacing! The shaded drawing of the girl on the bottom right has her eyes very close together. I hope that helps! Keep grinding~

    Thank you, Des. A lot of these are old, I'm trying to post in order, from when I had a break.I think the torso studies further up demonstrate it coming together. The first time I came across the bean, it was like a breakthrough, but when I started to draw from imagination it still hard to make connections between how you add limbs to the torso and foreshortening, so I may need to review. I was watching this videos on shoulders. Hahaha, yeah she looks like a cyclopes.

    How do you keep your enthusiasm?

    At this point my advice would be to simply keep drawing. Do studies of course like you are already doing, but also try and work on the imagery you love. You might not succeed as you come upon technical challenges and such, but still.... draw the things you love!

    Very nice Dominicque! Keep pushing. The life drawings came out lovely. Nice job on the rendering!

    Remember to keep in mind consistency and don't be afraid to remind yourself of fundamentals. Push form and value as much as you can! Some cubes are skewed so be careful. Consistency is the key to mastery imo.

    You've come a long way. Don't stop

    Thank you! Shows what I can do when I slow down. I was so focused on being accurate all the time, it really took the joy out of drawing and I was/am afraid of leaving my comfort zone. If if it's not great, I'm got to learn somehow. Trying to draw things, then look up references, hopefully my mileage will up itself by then. By cubes, I assume you're referring to the pseudo cityscape? I'll draw what I want, and do fundies on the side. I need to keep practicing, expect mistakes.

    Add some line weight to your sketches.

    For shading try to push darks more also simple still life from life helps with it

    Good work! I love your studies and broadness of subjects you like to cover. Looks like we got a comic artist in training? Your rendering stills in your black and shity studies really impress me a lot, as does your drive to draw the same thing iteratively again and again. it's a really great way to learn and something I've wanted to to more of... Really cool work and nice girls

    OMGosh, Thank you! I really needed this. I've been trying to draw a certain figure, and I just can't get it for the life of me. I see other bringing their artwork out seemly so easily. But, I just can't, it really makes me hate myself. I just keep on thinking to get to those skill points, it takes years and I need patience. I just need to really believe I'd eventually get there. How could you tell? Dominicque Bites the Bullet: A Beginner's sketchbook I would love to illustrate my own comics, one day. Just need to get over fear and frustration, but I'm working on it! #The struggle is real.
    >drive to draw the same thing iteratively again and again
    I actually hate it, but I'm stubborn. I just really want what I've learned to stick. I guess it's better when it's something you're fascinated by. Like, I'm drawing ears a lot now. Your work seems to come out so naturally. I way you draw expressions, accurately capture foreshortening and your command of watercolour.
    I draw screen still from anything I'm watching on my iPod touch that I want to draw. I want to go larger, but I find it hard to focus on the details. I'm glad you like my pencil renderings, I was really happy with the Joe one, next to the couple. (I assume you're referring to that one?) My dream is to be able to render like Wes Burt, Joao Ruas, and/or Miles Johnson. Those girls are my muses! I've drawn so many outfit designs for them, I have other groups, too, but they're the ones I draw the most.

    Which certain figure? Yeah, I also know the self-hate and -doubt. An artist is usually their own worst critic, others most likely think much more of your work than you do yourself Sadly it really does take years to practise, yes. And the skill points WILL come, especially with all those studies you do, studies are great! It's important to study real life, but also what you want to do eventually. In your case that's comics, that's how I get the thought of you being a comic artist Since I'm a comic fan too and might want to make one eventually (webcomic I guess), I should do as you do and study commics more. It's really good that you do that.
    Stubbornness is a virtue imo >) Ears are very tricky. I often use a mirror/my phone to see parts of the face and body on myself so i can get exactly the angle I want. Of course this limits me to my own features. I had a bad habit when I was younger of drawing very tiny hands, even on strong men (because mine are small).
    I frequently use references to get a pose and then I basically "put the body type and the character" of the person I want on it. By doing stuff like that and studies I've gotten a bit of a grip on those matters, but I notice how much better my accuracy is when I use references. There's no shame in using them I have a huge collection. That's how I#d approach foreshortening and expressions. Watercolor- I learned a lot of stuff from youtube videos, but I think once you know the basics aka wet on wet, wet on dry and both vice versa you're basically almost set... If you want to learn more about watercolor, I can link you some of my favorite resources. But the biggest tip I ever got and (kinda) used is: paint with confidence. Watercolor is not an unforgiving medium after all
    You do a great job on details, though! I#ve been referring to all of them, actually, the way you put down shading etc on the portrait studies and the cloth is impressive I just looked up all those artists and I like all of them! Have you ever tried to study from their work?
    Do you draw your muses when the muse strikes you? That's cool haha Drawing girls is so much fun

    @mkingamess I had this image of a snake-like woman/woman surrounded by snakes that had cornrows and was lightly holding her arm, which sliding down a wall in a seated position. I tried using an Adam Hughes picture as reference, did some studies of his work. Tried to just draw it in the end, but it never materialized how I envisioned it in my head. That's true of just got to get to the point where the internal critique is there, but I can ignore it and just get on with what I'm doing.

    Thanks, with the studies I do I can get frustrated, because I don't feel it going it when I attempt to draw from imagination. I've done some studies before, and about a page ago I posted a whole page study, but I should do more. Ears /are/ tricky, but really fun once you draw them. (So many curves. ) A trick is to think of them as being made up of Y and G shapes. A mirror is a good trick to use, there's just a limitation when you want aerial or perspective shots.
    Yep, I notice accuracy goes up, too, when you use reference. I always used to be afraid of using referencing, because I thought I would get caught out for cheat. I've graduated to actually using them, but I still feel residual guilt. Eventually, my dream goal would be to draw decently from imagination, I guess that's why I don't really get invested in using references. But, I guess I gotta change. Watercolour links would be appreciated.
    Thank you, I'm a stickler for pointing out the flaws in myself and other's work, but I think my approach is too myopic. I get so fixated and anxious about accuracy, I forego the entire picture. Looking at illustrator/art videos helps with my confidence. I find it really relaxing to just pause a video I'm watching and draw someone face and shade. I done a little bit of studies from Wes Burt, but maybe I should try a full study? Ahh, Miles had a sketchbook on here, we joined around the same age back in the day 14/15, but he's a professional now and I was so afraid of getting caught for 'plagarism' and lack of confidence in my own skill I stopped painting and drawing. Looking at his work just made me sad and jealous, I looked at it recently though and found his work inspiring. I wanna have what he has, I've just gotta stop beating myself up for time wasted.
    I used to swallow an idea down, but now I've just trying to draw what I like. It was always easy to draw designs for them, though.

    Trying out a value study. Heard a lot about painting in gray scale first, so that's what I did here.

    I really like that value study! I especially enjoy the places where it gets either rather rad of rather light, like the nose and mouth and the hair.
    It's good to be able to move past that self-critique, beating yourself up about not being as good as you think others are and not being able to show exactly what you had imagined... that#s really common and probably even the arists you look up to have such feelings now and then, if not frequently. You can push past it I guess it's also important to not "expect" a result from a picture, but to look for an experience. every picture you make that you don't end up liking is a chance to learn. And eventually you wil be able to use that knowledge Try to analyze what you don't like. Also what i sometimes do is take reference fotos of myself in the poses I want. yes it involves prepping up my phone in weird angles and places haha That way you get a reference nobody can trace down and you can use freely, lol. I also feel the residual guilt sometimes, but it's really ... not right, because references are a tool and it's allowed to use them, 100%. how else can one learn to draw new things?
    I joined the forum a while ago but only recently started being active. From what I've gathered a whole bunch of well known contemporary artists have been on here?
    Currently these guys are my absolute top favorite watercolor youtube channels:
    https://www.youtube.com/user/marcobucci He has amazing tutorials
    https://www.youtube.com/user/xjaredxcullumx and he also does that, as well as realyl cool demos

    You did well in your last study, keep doing and switching between studies and paintings from imagination. I understand you because I feel the same for a long long time, I hated studying because that was kinda of copying for me, and I never did it in the past, started some weeks ago and Im not regreting it. heh.

    About watercolors you can simulate them digitaly using corel painter which is really good at, take a look at some watercolours done in painter by Mike McCarthy, the end result is pretty

    Actually seeing people making a living with 'unperfect' art is giving me confidence to relax. (As an extreme example the graffiti artist, Sand one has work I think is horrendous and monotonous, but she has excellent business skills and she knows how to market herself, she's a branding queen. She puts her work everywhere and on every surface you can think of. Even artists work you're not that big of a fan of, you can still learn so much from/be inspired by. It also helps she has a shit ton of confidence and doesn't care what others think.) I think I might wanna to try my hand at CD/Book designs. I love looking and discovering new illustrators, my OGs are definitely James Jean and Vania Zouravliov. Sometimes I'll just chill watching youtube vids.
    >even the arists you look up to have such feelings now and then, if not frequently
    That's why it was so refreshing and inspiring to watch Manben. It's a show that shows the drawing process of Mangaka, people that draw manga. It was nice to see the struggle. It can take them hours to draw and plan a page and it's not so quick. I think when you are removed from the BTS and see the finished product, you don't see the effort behind it. The image looked easy. http://metahatem.tumblr.com/post/150...rasawas-manben
    I'm definitely trying to be less 'precious' about my work and focus on the process. It's a work in process. RE: References, I don't understand the internet hate mobs over finding what references an artist used. Someone said art/illustration is the only thing where the more accurate you are (reffing and/or tracing), the more people may take umbrage with it. True, it would be different if it was treated like a craft.
    >because references are a tool and it's allowed to use them, 100%. how else can one learn to draw new things?
    This. It's a logical paradox, otherwise. I just get paranoid, when I see things happening to others.
    A lot of concept/Fine artists used the forums, back in the 'golden age'. MindCandyMan, Algenpfleger and Miles Johnson all went from amateurs to pros, unfortunately only the 1st's sketckbook is still available to view on here, but I believe you can see Apple's and Miles' in a Zip file. Sinix on youtube also had an account here, plus Marko Djurdjević who went to work for Marvel after they saw his X-Men redesigns.


    Marco is so cool, and so thorough! Jared does gouache tutorial, but I assume they're also applicable to watercolours?

    I wouldn't call it half-assed, leaving things that are not in focus deliberately rough is a good way to bring the attention of the viewer to the place you want
    branding is a really smart thing and people with such business skills, even if their work isn't right up my alley are really inspiring me, too. Not in a way my favorite art does, but still I am rather shy and a very very bad marketing person. All of the people I made commissions for so far have been friends and I took less than 5EUR/hr for the drawings. That soooooo doesn't pay off. I didn't know these illustrators but love their work :o You know so many cool artists it's really good to have such a range of people to look up to and be inspired by.
    Ohh I gotta watch that it looks really nice. I also like that manga style. Used to be a weeb to be honest, back in middleschool haha
    Yeah, everything is a work in progress It's nice to look back at old drawings and see the improvement. Even if it's small
    Tbh I never seen such a hatemob. Only heard of them. I mean how pissy must one be to stalk down references to bug artists about it? What kind of things did you see happen to others? :o
    Algenpfleger is one I actually know, I follow them on tumblr since years Wow this forum really birthed a bunch of cool people. I also like Sinix' videos, he's a smart man. Makes me kinda nervous to know that so many big guys are/were here, lol, I mostly do art for fun and the money I get out of it is really worth mentioning
    jared also does watercolor, but yeah, the non-acryl guache and watercolor techniques are not too dissimilar. Never tried guache for myself, though, but I really want to!
    Will you continue to color the portrait more? I like it

    I meant 'half-assed', because I didn't add detail to the colouring and there are spots I missed. 100% even though hers isn't a style I'd want to emulate, her business practice sure is. Don't understand the mentality of bashing artist's whose work you don't like. There can always be something to glean, even if it's not what to do. I wanna start putting my artwork out there. Babysteps. It's cool that you're taking commissions, even if it's for friends (at low prices), it trains you to work to a deadline and to generate ideas for a client. Great practice if you ever got bigger. Magazines (that you can look up online) like Hi-Fructose, Spectrum fantasy art compendium and another that's unfortunately slipped my mind. You could also check the work of Fuco Ueda, Audrey Kawasaki and Tran Nguyen. It can get frustrating though, because I keep on comparing my art to theirs. Needs to be constructive comparison not destructive comparison. It's really inspirational to see their process! I don't think I really let myself have a 'weeb' phase'.
    There was a big campaign against Kuvshinov-Ilya, personally the only thing he did wrong in my opinion was trying sell his studies as prints. I mean people get angry at him for digitally painting screenshots of his fav films into his style. The whole thing just seems so petty. Oh, and recently there was a manga artist that was accused of tracing a Captain America pose, when it was obvious it was just reffed. So according to them once somebody has used a pose, on one else can use said pose??? Yet, you're meant to do studies, so what's the cut-off point? How do you make your influences not too obvious, or does that just depend on the person?
    Don't feel so nervous. Saying that though, I used to be. A lot of the bigwigs have left now, as have a lot of the forum's traffic. I think part of the stress and anxiety I give myself is being about able to be good enough to except commissions. Irony is I had less skill when I was younger, but more confidence to reach out.
    That's good to know, I'd really like to get to your level. I may come back to it, but I'd probably draw another one. Which ever's easiest.

    Would have replied sooner, but I thought CA was dead, for good.)

    Well I think there is nothing wrong using photos as long as you use it right. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...ence-correctly There is that whole thing about selling fan art as well people do it even whole fan art is in gray area if you look at copyright perspective, like usually owners dont care about it unless you start to sell it but people still do it, https://www.bleedingcool.com/2016/06...bleeding-cool/ I know its two years old link but I dont think problem is gone. About magazines there are Beautiful bizarre, Imagine fx, Juxtapoz, Infected by art. Have you ever collected artists folder ever, I think its great way to see what kind of art you like and its also good to think about what you like about certain artists, is it design, color, storytelling etc. Some artists that I can throw here Jo„o Ruas, George Pratt, Piotr Jablonski, mary whyte, Nathan Fowkes, Erik Tiemens

    Yeah CA was dead x.x I'm glad it's back!
    You ahve a really good idea of the people in the business, the sources, the tactics... Awesome! Those are great funadmentals not all fundamentals are learning the color wheel and how to shade
    I'd love to check out those magazines, I hope I won't forget, but i did write a note, lol
    Also ... do you pull all those names of artists you like from your head? because Dang! I can't even rememebr how to spell the name of the artists I like, sometimes i forget their names alltogether hehe! Looking at those three you just mentioned, I thought this: a) wonderful illustrative work! very face-centered and b) oh they all do the "pretty face emerging from trippy background" thing ahahaha ,it's a good concept but it's funny to see it so often in a row by unconnected artists.
    Hmm trying to sell studies as prints, I actually would let even that slip. Cuz it's not like he forces people to buy it, right? He jsut offers it. Also movie-studies are an amazing way to learn and very much fun! So many of those art-disputes are ridiculously petty. It's just stupid : o refrencing is fine, also imagine 2 artists buy the same reference pack/book and reference the same picture they bought for their own use in their towo seperate works. They did not copy each other, saying that would be ridiculous. I'm lucky I've stayed out of drama pretty well so far. I hpe it stays that way :o! You're good enough for commissions! It's the same like offering studies as prints- you jsut offer it, nobody is obliged to buy from you, but maybe somebody will! And yeah I think commissions are a great way to learn how to push yourself and really step up. Luckily I've hardly ever had deadlines though haha
    I also was way mroe confident when i was younger and drew much worse :,) it's be great to just get the best of both worlds! sadly that's hard to achieve :, ) You saying you wanna be on my level is also like WOAH to me, because I don't consider myself being on a level above you at all tbh. We both need some more confidence !
    mary whyte's watercolors tho

    I'm still getting over my fear of using reference. Interesting question about fanart, it's meant to be a 'no-no', but people sell badges and prints of copyrighted characters at conventions anyway. And, they seem to be fine. Juxtapoz! That's the one I couldn't remember, thanks for telling me about the others, too. I haven't tried that before, but I'', writing down a list of the different elements from different arts I like-i.e- Adam Hughes eyes/faces, Becky Cloonan's ink work, Wes Burt's rendering skills, etc. Love Joao, never heard of the rest. I assume you do style studies/try to draw in their styles with your folders?
