    very nice, keep on going...especially like the eyes on one of the 1st ones!

    the importance of doing fully-rendered skeletons and generally anything thats under the skin of a human is negotiable, though i find it rather useless, unless you intend to ever draw skeletons n' skulls outside of your sketchbook. the silhouette/general shapes are more than sufficient if you ask me, and you should concentrate on the skin more and the things you see (where the shading is actually of importance) when you get round to it!!

    Aw, no way, man! You gotta study everything you can. Skeletons, even if it doesn't seem like it makes any difference, really does. From just a pure utilitarian vantage it gives you some practice copying from seeing. But from a conceptual perspective it has good value as well. It's on top of bones that muscles lay. And then, of course, skin on top of that. Bones are the root structure. When you start studying those muscle groups, and how the tendons connect, you appreciate the time you took to understand the bone structure. Sure, not all of it is instantly usable, but you'll be glad you did in the long run.

    These are great. Lets see some originals now.

    Great studies, I love them. I agree with auden100 you need to study all you can, for me I try to get the major shapes down first; outline and work from there but once it comes to refining your drawing its nice to know your anatomy to really pull off a drawing.
    anyway good stuff, looking forward to seeing more of your work Darkside.

    Later.

    The Bone Doctor Diagnosis :::

    A working knowledge of anatomy will take you far ::: combine it with a working knowledge of drawing and you will get there faster ::: put that knowledge to work from memory and you will become its master.

    Normal people scare me!

    hey guys, I have some problems in ps, can you help me?
    I want to clean up the brushlibrarys, but when I delete some of the brushes they will be back the next librarychange. Is there a way to keep them out ps, so they donīt even load? also, can you delete whole librays? I only need 10 brushes or so, the rest is only disturbing.
    I donīt get the tabletsupport going, the integrated help says how to set brush dynamics, but that wonīt work. I want the brushes to be size- and opacitysensitive. What do I have to change? (btw, I have psElements2.0)
    thx for all help

    the free elements that coems with the wacom is missing some things so you might not be able to if its that im not shure on yoru other questions though because i only used elements coupel times .. but tehre is a photo shop bord here on ca i think if you go to the main fourm board you will find it mate keep going and the skull is pretty important since its soo close to the way it is with skin
    bones though it may seem like its unessary to know them since thay are coverd up by muscle and skin ,are important too .. if you know how the muscles and skin attach to the easly mesured bones it makes it much much easer to accuratly draw from memory or construct a good looking figure ,but like your man dot say surface forms are verry important also

    sup dude, good to see you doing some studies. like mentler said...(in not so many words) studying more efficiently will take you further. study areas at a time, jumping all over will help you retain less. also, once you study an area out of a book, go draw yourself in the mirror, then draw from memory. drawing from life and your imagination are 2 great ways to solidify the information in your mind. hope this helps, keep workin, bro.

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

    yeah, studies are great, it feels good when Iīve done some of them. the lifedrawingclass I attend is closed during vacation :/ but drawing with mirror is ok.

    one last knee for today, next coming in some hours(wish I could draw while sleeping, but my hand is not very independent )

    thx Nadim, Iīll stick to my pencil, perhaps marry him

    I was inspired by a Nelly Furtado pic, interesting shadow. Very rough, but perhaps Iīll make her a bit more beautiful(doesnīt look like her )

    I like the last SP, what tablet do you use, i am thinking about buying one too but am not sure about the price. What would be good? A4 or smaller?

    thx Ilja.
    You are not thinking about buying one, you WILL buy one no, serious, a tablet is a must-have. A4 is very big, I have a A6 and A5. A6 is ok but donīt use it anymore. I feel more comfortable with A5. I tested a A4 once, that is just too big IMO. There you must do biiig strokes to navigate. If I where you I would go out and see where you can test them to see what size fits you(a4 is expensive :/ ). Hope that helps a bit.

    Thanks for the advice, Darkside, do you own a Wacom?, i have seen some cheap aiptek tablets, but people always tell to buy wacom. where is the difference?

    yes I have wacoms. I think nearly everyone uses them. Donīt know exactly why this is, but they have properly the best quality.
