    guys! thank you so much im happy you like them! these characters are pretty much the reason i started this whole thing. they're the ones on the thumbnail of my sketchbook. TomTom i call them sketches just because of the process i guess. kinda loose, i dont group anything like i would do for a more finished thing, they re mostly done in one locked layer. then again i dont do finished things anymore, i just study when i have the time. it pays off though! i wouldnt dream of that when i started!

    so here's the 3rd main character of my thing, which is a pirate love story/adventure in space hes me but with a 3rd eye and no ears lol. not sure about the way hes holding his baton, or even if it reads as a baton. wanted to seem like hes slowly drawing it from his belt, but came out like hes just holding it and letting it hang back and forth or sth.

    Hey, really nice stuff you ve got there

    I was wondering if the stuff in post 63 and 64 are from imagination or studies using some sort of reference (?)

    hey thanks dude! they re all imagination, except the cars maybe. well there was a jeep across the street but i wast really copying, i looked at it a bit to see how it is, but drew it from other angles from imagination. with cars you cant really copy, you have to construct for them to not look ultra weird. you may have noticed that i draw a lot of boxes, and for me thats the most important part. if you can draw these boxes however you want, arranging them to make a car is nothing. then its all about how much focus and precision you re willing to put in your sketch. the girls are made the same way too. i just draw so many boxes that i can construct without drawing them sometimes, but i always think of them.

    here are some really random warmup-practice stuff i do, the re also from imagination

    Wow, loving those characters, like the designs a lot! Also your sketches blow me away, mainly because they have so much action and movement. They almost feel alive! Do you find that the quick gestures have helped you gain that, or something else? I feel like that's something I really lack so I'm curious what you feel has helped the most.

    Those characters are awesome. Really admire your anatomy drawings. Do you ever go to figure drawing sessions from life?

    thanks heath! thats definitely the case, i always advice people in other sketchbooks to do short gestures because of how much it has helped me. longer studies are good for understanding the forms better, applying anatomy, practice construction and shading. but i personally find 10-30 sec gestures much more valuable studies when it comes to figure drawing, because without good gesture there's no point doing the drawing at all. understanding the rhythms better, is a skill i aquired recently that i didnt have at all before. so i can still remember how it was when i didnt have it. and im still getting better as i practice of course. it comes from practicing very short gestures, training your brain to both see rhythm and prioritise elements/filter information. btw i had a big revelation about rhythm and what gesture is supposed to be when i saw glenn vilppu draw for the first time recently. so if you havent already, check him out! hes the best! i want to be just like him in like 10 years lol.

    thanks so much dude! i wish, unfortunatelly there's no such thing here, i live in a small greek island. even finding art supplies is hard here. there's only 1 thing per kind. like 1 charcoal pencil, 1 good fineliner, 1 graphite type. and when i dared to ask for newsprint paper once, i sensed they thought i was filming some prank video or sth. so having a girlfriend pose for me is as close as i can get to life drawing, but the best part is that i dont have a girlfriend! ha! got fast connection though! so yea i practice from quickposes.com and sites like that.


    this is a poster i made for a friend, she gave me the typography and i did the illustration. its in greek, it reads "Sensual" and below is the date and place and stuff. im pretty happy with it! but ofc all crit is more than welcome

    Man, your sense of construction is amazing. I'm loving your sketches, they have so much energy. Can I ask what pen you are using?

    Wow... I just watched glenn vilppu draw and I feel like I understand so much more then I did! I'm already starting to see a difference! Also been doing fast gestures since you mentioned it on my sketchbook... but I think I failed to pay attention to the rhythm and movement over just the shapes... I did more today without worrying about the shapes and I feel like that also is helping. I'll keep trying. Movement is pretty important to me because I want to make comics... and it's hard to make a still story come alive if my poses are stiff and don't have that life.

    Awesome poster, I like the slightly scribbled glasses and highlights, feel like it adds the right mood to the image. The only thing I notice is that the one girls hand disappearing behind the text at the top looks sort of awkward. I love the image though, looks like a fun event!

    thank you!! i use 0.3 fineliner, the brand is called "edding". thats the only brand they sell where i live. sometimes i like to outline with 1mm marker, also edding.

    just keep practicing! when i started i had no idea what i was even looking for, my brain hurt so much when i was doing these. it takes time, but you ll start feeling the rhythm eventually. dont worry just be concistent and dont stress it! another artist that i think is insightful for gesture is TB choi, check her out if you want. shes very young but ROCKING IT.

    thanks for that critique! didnt pay attention to that hand, i ll sure go fix it!

    these and the previous ones are from imagination. i try to make a habbit of filling at least a page with sth before bed. but if i sit on my desk im always too tired to not be distracted by the pc and i never draw. so i take these in bed with me until i fall asleep. these days i cant find time for proper practice and i want to murder everyone.

    did this random girl sketch and then i tried to study nurzhan bekkaliyev's sketch. this is the first time that im doing this. i think his stuff are very usefull to learn about form and lighting, they look like 3d models. the forms are so clear and the shadows so easy to understand. plus his subjects are awesometacular, cant think of something more awesome and fun to study from, he's definitely on my top 5 of favorite artists

    super line-weight and great looseness in your drawings, as well as an admirable attitude to your studies!! those characters designs give off a nice, solid 3D base too I see you're quite loose with your sketchbook, any tips on how to try break the "perfection" of trying to make every page perfect?

    thanks so much! im kidna loose cause i dont think of it as a sketchbook i guess, just scrap papers. i dont think i would be able to have a nice sketchbook yet, so i dont try to make pretty drawings, i see it as mileage and trying to get the bad drawings and mistakes out of the way. but in your case, i visited your sketchbook and you have some amazing stuff going on! would be cool if you had a special sketchbook for your nice drawings, and a second one for your rough thoughts and sketches. i also have a "good" sketchbook but its still blank lol

    thank you so much for that morale boost Sparekiss-Sketchbook i love your sketches, make me wanna go out and draw! as for the request i dont know if i can promise anything.. Sparekiss-Sketchbook i never really wanna draw men, and when i do i cant resist turning them into muscular girls, there's something wrong with me i guess

    ok so i did the first lesson of gesture drawing on schoolism and it was really interesting. it was about line of action, and was approached in a way i never knew before. you have to describe the pose with a single line, distilling it to its bare essence. this line must not be the armature of the pose, it must be like an abstract graphic language. the simpler it is, the clearer the pose. so you have to ask whats the main idea and what the person is doing. the story has much to do with the line of action. and it is subjective, there can be more than one lines of action for a pose, but you have to chose one and everything else must be secondary to that line.

    so even if its an airborne ballerina with a million curvy rhythms, but the point is that she's reaching up in the air with her arm, the line of action could be a straight from her arm to her foot. or a curve from her arm to her other arm, if she has them both up and you think thats the point. so it doesnt even need to describe the torso at all, it just has to be the most important thing you want to say. i never thought of gesture this way. i always tried to curve everything and follow c curves from one rhythm to the next. i now also learned that you have to use contrast of straights versus curved, so the curves seem even more flowy and the straights even more tense.

    though im kinda contested, because what i learned from vilppu is kinda the opposite thing, im gonna stick to what the lesson says to the letter cause i think i can see the benefit from this approach. vilppu never uses any jagged lines and starts the gesture by making a 3d armature out of rhythm (actually describes that what he does is no different than what sculptors do with wire for the armature to hold the clay). which is exactly what the istructor says not to do.

    so the first exercise was a 20 min session of line of action drawings (girl model thank godSparekiss-Sketchbook), which i did twice. every pose felt like an eternity cause im not used to seeing the single most important line, my brain wants to connect everything with rhythm, so my first attempt was basically a more simple version of the 30 sec gestures i do. couldnt do just a single line. after i rewatched how the instructor does them, i tried it the second time and here's the results. there's not much to make out without the ref. i watched the paying student critiques and most of them were correct, but others he simplifies even more. so i think im now getting the exercise, gonna add it to my warmup practice.

    and here's the second exercise, which is to take photos or paintings or whatever and draw the line of action. i watched many student critiques before doing this, and after seeing what he's correcting and how he simlifies, i think im getting how they're supposed to be. i think these are the lines i would use, but if someone is familiar with this concept id like to hear feedback cause this is still pretty new to me.

    more! some have maybe more than 1 line, but im not sure how to describe that they re holding guitars aaand having an interesting pose. i think the guitar should be on the line of action cause its important for the pose. in other student images where the person was holding something, it was always on the line of action.

    some more studies, i found these heads and the planes looked good to me so i figured i'd study them. havent studied the reiley method yet or the asaro head but i think these i can understand better. the skull that shows how the jaw works is pretty cool, i finally know now.

    couple of these are from the ref and the rest from imagination or from looking at the ref and drawing another angle.

    this is the second lesson from schoolism class about shape. the exercise was to make shapes out of each pose, kind of like the envelope technique, but not just containing the boundaries of it. had to describe the essence of it, just like in the line of action lesson. again, the simpler the shape the better, and things like balance, stability, motion, stiffnes, force or emotion, must be expressed from it.

    so here's my assignment, had to make 30sec shapes and then do the same poses once again for 30sec gestures on top of the shapes. took photos of before and after

    Amazing work, you're values are phenomenal and I've rarely seen people study so well. Very impressive! I recognise all of the Schoolism exercises and some of the struggles, you're doing a great job with them though. I'm not sure if I'm personally a huge fan of how he approaches the line of action but it's still a valuable thing to know.

    thanks so much fot the encouragement i know i was sceptical about it at first too but now i think its pretty helpful, another tool you can use.

    here are some sketches i did yesterday. i want to push them to illustrations but im scared of color and i know that if i try to make things tighter they end up looking like plastic toys... i also have some idea of how i want the finished thing to be but i suck at applying textures and stuff. anyway, think i might wait till i learn more stuff about rendering and color

    These are great, if you were to draw these in color to begin with and then just remove the linework at the end they would look great! Believe me, I know what it's like to always want everything to be perfect, but sometimes you just have to inhibit yourself. As a neutral observer I can tell you that these are already amazing illustrations, even without color. I see some real good knowledge of anatomy and values, which you use to create your own style. A loose style is always much more charismatic than a super tight drawing and it shows of much more of your own personality and style.
