    thank you very much darkautumn,
    it is nice you like my stuff.

    Well, school sucks again and again.
    I just bought some fine canvas for new oil paintings
    but i didn┤t have that time i would need for them.
    Hope tomorrow i can show you some more little sketchy progression.

    long time no update... its a pitty, but school does take away all my time
    (i do sketches nevertheless...)

    well these female faces are from imagination,
    only the two more finished one are from templates.

    I have a math test tomorrow, so i have some free days where i can and will
    work on next week!

    thank you both Yina and patdzon, i really appreciate your words!

    Wow, that┤s a big step towards the right direction Jonas. Compared to the non-ref figure sketches I saw in NŘrnberg last week you improved a lot in short time. Good work!

    Really good sketches here. The faces are excellent. I really enjoy your shading style as well. You do a great job of giving them personality...almost like you've seen them before...

    My only critique would really be on that last sketch. His pubic region seems like it has some anomalies on the side of his left thigh. Also I'd like to see you do some hand and feet sketches for me if you could.

    Great work on your sketches...especially the faces. Keep it up!

    Thank you for response!

    Robolus:Thank you, i am still not up to top of health.. still feel a bit tired...
    but the extra sweat is tastes sweet!
    I hope i can finish the oil painting this week...finally!

    Sojo:thank you for critic, you are right of course... need more time to define the forms

    about the extra hand and feet request

    i start a better rendering work drawing hands... perhabs i also use some charcoal

    here the first important 25min



    and finally some other stuff i did in school... while listening to oral tests!
    Full body drawings a lot more fun and sweat!

    That's a great hand sketch. Do you have one of the feet? I like your new sketches btw. The lady looks like she's sucking her stomach in or atleast holding her breath. For that I'd say the neck may be a little too thick and the shoulder needs to be rounded out a little more on the outer side. It also seems a little small in comparison to the rest of the arm. The colar bone also appears to be missing. For the rest I'd have to see more (ex. I'm not sure what her right arm is doing)

    For the other sketch, the face looks great. My main concern there would be his feet. The best way to do it is remember that when you do cloth and shoes being worn on a human being, remember that the human being is being encased in that. The boot is covering the foot. So if I were to imagine what that individual's foot looks like in that shoe, I would say his feet are unusually small for his size. The boots also appear to be flat towards the tip and the boot seems to cut off where the meta-tarsels (the knuckles of the feet) would end; leaving space for the toes nowhere to be seen.

    I enjoy your sketches, keep it up!

    btw, what do you do? Are you going to collage or preparing to go?

    Huh... thank you once again Sojo!

    Totally agree! Having some distance from the sketches, i can see it clearly!

    I currently still student at a kind of secondary school with some more art lessons... although u not learn a single thing.

    Probably i go to a art school afterwards, or just take the option to push myself to do some finished work!
    I definitely will do something in this area for a job... but still looking around what i like more or less... where i comfort or not!

    Ok next time more concentration and muse!

    I've said it before, I'll say it again. You are very good at face sketches. I have no critiques on that. Excellent stuff.

    Mr. Non-Proportion

    well i am just such a damn shitty dumbass!
    .
    .
    .
    I almost forgot how to draw faces in the last week,
    not really understand what going on,
    then i took some old book from loomis and got back the idea!

    I do right now some different more detailed and worked out (?)
    drawings and also practicing with some other medium,
    i hope i can give u some examples...

    well nevertheless i can┤t stop doing mistakes,
    i didn┤t get to manage to draw faces or heads proportional to their bodies....

    just did some trick with my digicam to improve the proportions...

    ... a really long way he?

    thank you once more sojo... i hope you updated your sketchbook.. will have a look next...



    well about 1 hour (mostly for erasing...)
    (Robolus: the way to go is so simple but i have to manage to kick my own first)

    Xaya, you're a very good artist. Your face sketches have a masterful edge to them. Don't downplay your skills. Proportion only goes so far...because in real life...proportion is always slightly distorted. So mistakes aren't necessarily a bad thing.
    The human form is the toughest thing to get down to exact proportion. I've been working on a system to achieve this and hopefully I'll post it soon. The best way to get the rest of the body in proper proportion without a ruler is by going off of the head. It's all related. They all measure out exactly.

    I'll critique your latest sketch as soon as I get back. I can tell you have strong rendering skills in you.

    About my sketchbook, unfortunately the thread has drowned in the wake of the others, so I felt no need to add more. I may still post more sketches...but not right now...thank you very much for seeing and responding to my work.

    You have a lot of talent. Keep at it and you'll skills will become truly phenominal.

    well thank you once again,
    i surely have some knowledge about anatomy and i am improving my skills
    (just have another bigger "click")
    but there are so much areas i am really amateur,
    my working is messy and unreasonable,
    i have much knowledge in my head but it lacks on concentration!
    I don┤t want to downplay my skills, i see what i have done, and with every new paper i am still improving (nevertheless non-linear).

    For your sketchbook, look through my first 3 pages and you will notice that i not get that much feedback that i wished for. But it gets better!


    Also you Hurricane, i thank you very very much, your words mean a lot to me!


    ok although i got to another step in character developent,
    i show you the progress on the "crossing hands" (seeing above)

    As so often i work with less structure....
    ...doesn┤t like that glossy effect of pencil and colored pencils!

    Nice work as always

    Regarding your last face sketch, when doing the eyebrows - make sure you make them grow away from each other not in the same direction!!
    The left eyebrows grow to the left and the right to the right, hardly ever you will find someone who has them grow together or in the same direction...

    thank you imagesproof!

    Ok long time no update,
    the reason is that i have my final test at school!

    Well nevertheless i did my daily pencil work...
    i am starting to get back to the flow... after along time.

    Ok here a big update although it is really sketchy stuff,
    and if i think right with not one reference... just imagination,
    done in the last weeks. Not chronical order!


    Next time some more sweat!

    generally good stuff. you should maybe try to improve your shading some more and push the contrast up there.

    i love this one, great, powerful, pose, superb sense of movement.
    keep it up!

    thank you Lim,
    it is quite a typical thing for me to keep drawing as unfinished as possible.
    #(although i need finished work...)

    Another example?
    I started this yesterday, i forced myself to do something with my colors!
    (i normally do color stuff only if i have a magnificant idea (which keeps magnificant for me just for a short time)
    References? Yes, pity but necessary to grow!

    About 3 hours i think, done on board with titanium white and raw umbra.
    I think i keep that monocrome- look although it was meant to be a underpainting.




    [edit] ohh, it is not finished yet.... you may see[edit]

    Well thank you very much.... will do some little tweaks nevertheless!


    I would be interested if i could take something like this last piece (in that status)
    for my application at a art school?
    Or do they want what is ordinary "finished"!
    At my school a pre- design school (not really) they don┤t like that unfinished style... everything has to done cleanly...

    So what do you think?


    And a off-question: why does it say i have 1 unread PM when i actually have none? a coding mistake?

    i think you can tightend up the drawing alot more if it's for like school or something like that. You can just go into the details but don't loose that focal point of the face. Can't wait till you pimp it out.

    Ahhh don┤t know if i reached the finish-line...yet.

    Ok i am quite happy with the result, took me just 3 days about 2 -3 hours each.
    Perhabs i do some small tweak like darken the left eyelid-hair (?).

    So... if i become bored today i will do a small gif animation to show the different progress steps.... really like such things.
