    Hey -j-,
    Nice start, i liked the hand and arm studies the most. Very solid.
    The head seams alittle weired to me, i dunno. The portraits are cool man. Try to do more studies.

    Post more.

    You shouldn't draw them smaller! There's nothing wrong with details. You've started your sketchbook off right. I especially like the study of the bird. Keep sticking around and posting, hope to see more from you

    Great bones! I always lose my patience on them, but yours capture the volume and shape very well.

    Hey, great start!!!!!!
    Nice studies, I especially like your anatomy works! The proportions of your kid portrait are very good (I always mess those kids up )!
    Keep it up! Post more and never stop!

    PS: try giving your pal frank some more head behind the ear, looks like his back head was chopped off a bit

    Hi -j-
    Your anatomical studies are looking good. IMO you should not only study details but also the whole body like doing simplified figures (doing them and you learn about movement and balance too)... then merge the knowledge you got from studying the details with your simplified figure drawings. anyway thats just a suggestion there are so many ways to learn.

    Keep it up man

    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    mindflaw - yeah, that's definitely a good idea. a lot of times i get caught up with trying to make a nice looking picture, and i don't really get as much out of the studies as i should. thanks a lot for the commment! (edit, so i don't double post). some old, some newer.

    J,
    You have some really good studies going on here. The brown paper ones have a nice quality resulting from the way you have rendered them with the ink and white(paint pen?). You also seem to have a decent feel for portraiture, which can be really challenging. I would be interested to see how you treat the figure as a whole. Do you have any to show us?

    Leslie

    hey leslie, thanks for the comment! i haven't really done any figure studies yet, but i really need to. i'll try some over the next couple of days to post here. the white on the brown ones is a gel pen, btw. that method is really fun because it's a really good turd polisher (makes any of my crappy drawings nicer looking)!

    2 crits.
    The magazine woman's hair seems a bit... half assed... I've seen you do better.
    The figures torso seems a bit too skinny, but then again, maybe it was.

    Great studies though.

    !

    haha, yeah, half-assed is a good way to put it. i would post the ref for the figure, but then you would see how fucked up everything else is, too. thanks for the crits man.

    J,
    Good to see a full figure from you! I think it's a nice start. However there are some propotional problems, as i'm sure you are aware. The big one is that the scale of the legs is not the same as the torso/head/arms. They are maybe 20-35% too small.

    Can't wait to see some more!

    like the portraits shading

    greetings to frank ;D


    id like to give u a few tips.. about..here we go ->

    u can see all objects u see around you as 3D or volumes.. when u draw a cube.. its a volume too.. it looks 3D but its flat.. it just appears 3D.. arms legs muscles faces features evrything is a volume too..you can learn how to orient and draw legs arms or whatever when u draw easy geometrical 3D volumes like cubes or cylinders to understand the orientation in 3D space ( foreshortening - vanishing points )
    when u know about the muscles u can place them at the cylinders or cube surface.. keep it cubical and u keep the orientation almost perfect.. u can use spheres too but pay attention to its placement and orientation

    when i draw body i start with easy geometrie to check how i need to allign things in 3D orbit.. i draw a sphere and a few more.. then i draw arms legs heads as cylinders then i add details and some muscles maybe.. just indicated slightly
    ::: simplifie -> orientation -> proportions -> details :::

    thats my schedule .. its hard to add details without any knowledge about how to place them or how to orient*allign them in 3D space*orbit.. this why the cube and cylinder drawing is a very good help .. once u know more about orientation and proportions its easier to place the detail because i can see where and how to place ur lines to make the details muscles appear..


    besides my schedule and learning technique*method.. i keep these things in mind and pay lotsa attention to each of them when i draw..or when i dunno where i need to improve i remind me in these 5 rules
    ((( i dunno but few ppl think when they draw wronmg its because anatomy.. but i think .. anatomy is very easy to learn but hard to draw.. and when u cant draw anatomy its not because the muscles u know or not.. but its because "about" drawing mostly its because the viewpoint and perspective.. some things dont fit in the propper orientation which makes the image odd. twisted perspective.. common mistake.. " how can i draw anatomy when i dont know how to draw" )

    ::: propoprtions
    ::: dynamic
    ::: foreshortening
    ::: vanishing point
    ::: symmetrie

    i hope these help a bit
    if u need more tips n tricks or so.. pm me and ill share some more

    pss : greetings to ur son

    whoa, thanks to everyone who commented. i've been on vacation for the last week, so that's why i'm hasty on replying. these crits are very helpful, i'll have to really think about them after i've had some sleep. thanks again!

    Keep up the hard work. You are doing good.
    You should follow the advise bob gave you. Work on simple shapes (don't just sit and draw circles, simplify objects from life or ref.) When you shade, make sure your pencil strokes follow the planes.
    I see that some of your rendered drawings look a little crude...don't be afraid of spending more time on them. Don't be afraid of ruining your drawing...it's just one of MANY studies. Experience is the product here, not the drawing it self. If you can. draw each day!

    Good luck

    Alright, so school's been kicking my ass. Here's a few recent ones, first 2 are things that were sitting around friends houses. There's also a portrait of my brother, and some random magazine dude that looked funny. So there.

    Ok, it's been a little while now since I last updated this biznass. I graduated last week, and have been working full time since then. Anyhoo, here are my first 2 paintings ever, done in gouache. The first is a tree in my backyard, the second is the late Mr. Hunter S. Thompson.





    Feedback and crits are always appreciated, especially since when it comes to painting, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Thanks!

    yeah, so i haven't updated this bitch in forever. my scanner is broken, but my wife got a new camera for x-mas. i took like, 30 pictures, but only a few turned out even halfway decent. i'll post more when i get it figured out.



    copics and pen


    a little acrylic


    so the picture quality is pretty bad. i'll figure something out.
