    What am I even doing?

    Well, I've decided to post (another) sketchbook, since my last one had all of two pages. So, basically, long time lurker, first time poster. Also, a little background, I'm 17, attending Interlochen Center for the Arts, and mostly due a lot of digital art. I want to say I want to go into animation, but it seems like everyone says that these days (though not of people actually get into it). So, I'll some sort of illustrator. Also, sup Spud, Uyeno, and Sinix?
    Oh, and I'm currently trying to focus on heads.

    Really nice start! Reminds a lot of me when I was first starting. Also some more inspiration you should check out BahiJD if you haven't already. Super inspirational animator. Remember to fill out those sketchbooks and draw everyday if your'e looking for improvement. Good luck on your journey!

    Eh, update. Following Uyeno-sensei XD. I did 2 self portraits (from life). I'm quite pleased with them, because they're about 20 mins a piece, and usually it takes me longer to capture a likeliness. Anyway, everything else from imagination, and also I couldn't draw tonight, because my computer hates me, so these are from last night. C&C welcome!Name:  scrap020_a_CA.jpg

    i get allot of impatience with these, which is something i suffer from myself. It's easy to do allot of these fundamentals studies in a hurry but if you really want to get a strong grasp of how to draw something you really need to study it.
    fast rough sketching is great when you are experimenting with ideas and variations but when you are teaching yourself to draw something as complex as the head of something you need to slow down and pay attention to every facet of its composition.

    one of the brains strongest functions is pattern recognition. Once you have taught yourself enough dimensions of something i.e the face, you will be able to render them much better at a faster pace

    Ooh! Arms! I noticed that I suck at arms, so back to Bridgman. I plan on just focusing on each small part of the body until I completely cover it. Also, if anyone has a drawing or something very clearly delineating and defining the groups of the Extensors, Flexors, and the Brachio radials, I'd love for you to post it. I'm having a little trouble with them in relation to each other.Name:  scrap021_a_CA.jpg

    Great studies. Make sure you master them from imagination without having to look back for reference after copying. That's what makes studies worth while.

    PengRoach &Paladis: Cheers. You both have some nice stuff going on.

    Uyeno: Thanks. Actually, only the 'bottom row' of arms is reffed.

    Yay! More arms. Torsos as well. I probably need to work on hands....

    Great start , I loved ur sketches and I will be following , something to recommend is to practice the basic shapes " square-sercile-sphers-rectangle-cubes-cylinders" in other words form and devolope good understanding for it , yeah it's kinda boring but with time u will not need them that much .. ctrlpaint.com has really great foundation videos and sinix also has good artistic videos talking about art and you will learn tone from them . Wish you best of luck

    Ehe. Sorry I haven't been updating recently. I've been... busy... yeah, busy.... Anyway, I figured I should go back to some torso anatomy stuff. Trying to get the contours right, and came up with my own little method from bridgman. I think I'm going to try arms next. No refs. Also, I need to do more reffed stuff.

    Thanks Mukkled! I'll try to do some more form stuff.

    Bwuuaaa? An update?! Well, I've resorted to just copying Uyeno, cause he's that good. Speaking of which; Uyeno, post more hands for me to study. Also, a piece I painted that was originally from my sketchbook (I'll get around to scanning more of it.)

    HAHA whaaaaaaat dude I suck! Nevertheless thanks man LOOK UP TO ARTISTS BETTER THAN ME BECAUSE I'M CRAP LOL I take like 70 percent of my inspiration from Kim Jung Gi! I really like his way of drawing girls and faces! Check him out and do studies from him instead Your piece is really nice I like the water effect on his face and the style!

    Haha. Of course there are artists better than you, but you're still pretty damn good. Besides, I feel like I learn artists that haven't achieved 'mastery' because you can see how they learn in their drawings. Besides, you're my inspiration, dude!

    Thanks opanic. Two things I really have difficulty with are arms (damn arms, who needs 'em anyways) and thinking of good poses. I do think that my torsos are improving, though. More mostly Uyeno studies, but my stuff at the bottom witht the little "VA"s next to them.

    P.S. I've thought of a saying for when I don't know what to draw. WWUD: What Would Uyeno Draw?
