    hi gods,

    i visit this site for good 2 months and it´s truly a inspiration and a kick in the ass to draw...

    to introduce myself: i am student at a german kind of secondary school of Design (not that thing u imagine )
    I am 19 years old and want, after finishing school, go to a art school...

    so here we go... some with references some without... u may see...

    sorry for that bad quality but my scanner is gone and i have to shot by my digicam..

    @liam.c:*puh* thank you

    Xaya´s Sketchbook -

    perhabs you already see the differences in quality among the sketches...
    it is really a thing of concentration... and patience
    (i normally have the behavior to do it the fastestway i am able to )

    Hi there

    It's good to see that you're focusing on figure drawing in your dsb... anatomy studies are so important so keep it up!
    I really like the self portrait, even if it doesn't look like you
    Maybe you could add a little more darker values to your drawings as to create more depth.

    Great start for your dsb
    keep it up

    cheers.t

    thank you t.m0 for reply

    yes i had really problems to press the pencil more into the paper generally.
    So there is no chance to fill the spectrum from white to black with the pencil.
    U will see that the drawings are done very tight mostly.
    I must really kick myself work the things more out, go over the sketching stage to the rendering stage... perhaps next time

    2 new pages without ref

    - i must buy a new sketchbook this week!

    that´s kind of you winwinja

    well i really focus human anatomy.
    Drawing architecture and similar is currently just a background thing.
    Nevertheless i really like it especially churches and old buildings...
    so u may see some next time
    i am a bit busy because i have to paint a still with candy for school and do that with gouache colors (i don´t like gouache and i don´t like stills!!!)

    nevermind

    so you may see some anatomy demonstration tonight
    (sometimes it is really suprising to see what you can draw already...
    improvements all days!)

    You're makin' some progress you just have to stick with it! I really like the refed stuff the best. The faces towards the top just looked really nice. Don't be afraid to render out some of these figures really well sometime. You've got a good thing going! I'll be lurking to see how this progression continues. I'm sure you'll do great!

    ok i really forced myself doing some rendering (=some rough shading)
    i did not really work that much this weekend so this is the fast results

    the sleeping man is my dad after work on his sofa
    so its true life drawing

    the other drawing is done from heart (no ref.)

    some questions to the masters here:
    I screw up about 60% of the sketches / drawings i do.
    So will this become better than i more skilled
    or is there everywhere a bad start which follow a new beginning?

    Not really sure about the question ^^ but if you take a look at my roomies sketchbook you can see a lot of progress from beginning to end achieved in about 2 months just by practicing and drawing every single day (without courses, classes or whatsoever).
    so just draw draw draw and you'll get better in no time

    keep it up
    cheers.t

    i see my english didn´t work...

    i wanted to ask if u do also some sketches which are really bad in comparison to your actuall skill... so that you have to throw it in the garbage...

    but just thinking about this i guess that if you give more time checking proportions and linework (which are so important)
    u can´t really do some bad stuff.

    Oh, that's what you meant ^^

    nobody's perfect and I think it happens all the time, that a drawing doesn't really match others you did before or what you are able to produce. Though sometimes it happend that I kept working on a really bad drawing, until it turned out pretty cool So don't give up. If it sucks.. who cares anyway.. as long as it doesn't pull you down.

    cheers.t

    Ah i see i have to work at the value - spectrum from white to black

    What pencil do you use getting really dark (black) lines? (not speaking of markers)
    With a mechanical pencil it is difficult....
    (or do you buy +2b "graphit sticks" for it?)

    I for instance am cheating I'm using a black polychromos - only way to have it really black and it doesn't even smear all that much!

    just had to look up what polychromos are... *g*
    well i questioned this because i can´t really understand how some guys here achieve some really (big) black areas without the negative aspects i get.
    And there is no diffences if i use a 2b or a 8b pencil

    I already saw Feng drawing with Prismacolors, which also are mentioned in some Loomis books... think i catch some of them...what i saw they work fine.

    hey xaya

    mir gefällt besonders das allerletze gesicht das du gepostet hast! hat viel tiefe und ist viel besser als alles andere was du gemacht hast. entweder machst du unglaublich schnell fortschritte oder du hattest bei den anderen nur viel "pech".

    was uns zu deiner frage fürht...es ist sicher so dass bei den meistern (ich spreche jetzt von grossen zeichnern, die ich persönlich kenne) was schief geht, nur dass ihr unteres niveau viel den meisten trotzdem genial erscheint, und sie auch wissen, wie sie dies zu verhindern haben. im idealfall könnte man also sicher mit jeder zeichnung ein meisterstück herstellen, mann müsste nur seine technik und sein auge genug lange trainieren!

    @O.D.T.
    zuallerst mal wie kommt es dass du aus Birmingham kommst
    aber trotzdem deutsch sprichst... viel zu gut um nicht Deutscher zu sein
    würde mich doch interessieren... oder studierst du im Ausland?

    Das auch noch Meister Fehler machen ist mir bewusst,
    obwohl man doch diese reduziert... und kaschiert natürlich.

    Dass dir das letzte bild gefällt machst mich doch a bisl skeptisch... weil ich ja kaum, wegen der miesen erkältung, kraft hatte und mich nicht wirklich konzentieren konnte.... vielleicht aufgrund der trübung der linken gehirnhälfte..(oder was die recht?)

    nun es kommt aber auch komischerweise vor dass ich tatsächlich solche Leistungsschübe habe, hab dass oft beim 3d modeling mitbekommen....
    booom!!! plötzlich tausendfach besser und schneller...

    naja woll ma hoffen dass es anhält...

    thx
    Xaya

    perhabs this work it out... perhabs

    you should take some time and really finish a couple things....like this last SP for instance. If something isn't working, fix it, make it work. No excuses, you can do it! keep em coming!

    I never used to have the patience to finish something, then I did a couple thunderdomes, now I can spend a day or two or 3 on a drawing. even pro's take time when the draw, and speed comes from drawing it slow a hundred times...you're on the right track though...

    now...Draw On!

    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    but i am so tired

    no you are absolutely right... it is time to finish somthing!!!

    Because i am of at a "design branch" school we have to draw
    illustrations and stills from time to time
    and especially illustrations are a lot of fun
    and the works spend a lot of time (to many time sometimes...)
    The point is that i am a little (sub]conscious afraid of go a step on... destroy the recent stuff.
    Another thing is that i have to high demands of the thing i draw
    it have to be a deeper background (in theme) and so on...

    its really time to kick that attidutes...

    ok here the next little step... work on tomorrow... time is over for today
