    I like Degas. Way to study his work. I like your sketchbook. I just got a Degas book with big color pictures so I think i'll be sketching some dancers in the near future as well.

    Good life drawings below. My only advice is to include the hands. its the only way to ever get better at them. I know its a bitch. I suck at them majorly. so I need to heed my own advice as well. hah

    I know its tuff to fit in drawing with school. (I suffer from the same dilemma) Good work. I'll watch out for more of your stuff. Take care

    Nice work, your linework is continually improving!
    Like the Degas study, I think you've captured some of the same energy of the pose that Degas was going for. Good work!

    Thanks guys
    I've more then this of course, but choosing between that shit, and this shit is like choosing between red or blue M&Ms. (though, what should be noted is that I should spend longer time on my drawings like with some of the James Jean ones, and that I'm not seeking pity or comfort, I'm just saying how it is).
    I show you this James Jean study because it's the only thing I really like, I mostly tried to studi his ballpoint pen technique, because it is just so beautiful:
    "Eh, well.... I know how to look good...."

    Some potraits of Sufjan Stevens, it doesn't look like him. The big one could look like him if I would just fix an angle of his right cheek/jaw bone and make his chin smaller. I show you this because I have been getting more and more into drawing 'directly' instead of constrution, I just like it better, but I still construct my imagination drawings.
    "Eh, well.... I know how to look good...."

    Yep, dude you need to post more often! You seem to draw better in what you called a "direct" method. You should still keep learning contruction though, in concept work/imagination you can't really draw in such a direct manner. But Learn both methods, the more ways of drawing you have the better.

    I need to practice construction.

    School started:/ Less drawing time (not that I used the vacation to draw.... fuck, I hate that I'm lazy, need to change that now!).
    Anyway, I started drawing with wooden pencils again, lots of fun actually, and easier to shade for now I need to practice values.
    These hands are not so good, especially the unshaded one (done in a 'direct' way, way too fast.) But just to post something with it (I've done some more drawings, but nothing fun to show.)

    Thanks guys. I need to draw more and have less school.

    Anyway, here's a study, which isn't so good for being a study? Because it has a lot of small/larger flaws.
    But I like it as a drawing.
    "Eh, well.... I know how to look good...."

    It's still WIP and it's after Rubens.

    Some flaws:
    Stance, proportions of legs (mostly the construction and stance of them) the left arm who any person could see (will rework it.......) some of the shadows are a bit flat, doesn't have the richness, variety which Rubens achieved. the right arm is alo wrongly angled and the towel's right side is just fucked up in the construction.
    oh well, will rework the towl and arms at least, when i get to them.

    Actually, despite the very minor flaws you've mentioned, this is a very successful drawing!
    Form reads well, even in areas without shading, which is a great sign.
    The richness Rubens achieved in the shadows and form has much to do with the varying saturation and temperature of his colours, something difficult to emulate with pencil. If you're having trouble in this respect, convert the image to greyscale to help you see the values more clearly.

    I'm sorry for being boring and posting without a picture but I want to answer to greensock:
    It's a drawing actually, not a Rubens painting. Guess it makes me look even worse, huh?
    Oh well

    Great study of such a beautiful drawing! You can learn so much from Mr. Hale's book, for instance, that most master drawings have few (if any) concave contours, I've never read about things like that anywhere else, good luck and post more often

    Sorry guys that I haven't been posting much, I've not been drawing as much as I'd like to, but hopefully, that'll change.
    I've been working on my anatomy mostly, for better and for worse. You know, it really takes a while with drawing to get back on track, so people, don't ever take long pauses from drawing, it'll only hurt you.
    Anyway, I'm thinking about starting a new sketchbook, starting over, getting some goals. It will help me in the long run and short... run?

    Here's a picture I drew yesterday in school, with a mouse. Paint sucks.

    Hey, good to see you're posting! I know what you mean with getting off track with drawing, thats why I started making myself do some daily 'routine' activities like my self-portraits and stuff. Helps to keep exercising even when Im having a bad day.
    For something done with a mouse in paint, that pic kicks ass. The simple jittery linework kinda reminds me of some of HPX's sketches.

    I actually thinks it looks quite cool

    and as sirgreensock says get a daily schedule and get in the habit of doing without exceptions it need not to be long maybe just 20 min as long as it's daily you know the minimum the stuff you do even in a bad day.

    keep going

    Great shading on the figure in post 878, the way you have drawn the figure really reminds me of rubens lol. When drawing hands start off with just drawing a their basic then go in a define the fingers - I like to use the negative spaces between them as away to define their shape. And you are right - paints do suck.
