    hey farvus, nice update! tempera wow, don't see that much anymore good stuff though the 2nd is a definite improvement over the first (hope that doesn't sound insensitive or anything lol) keep at it with the tempera though! I'm sure you'll put out some good stuff... oh and the hands look pretty good, top left one is my favorite; watch those proportions a bit though. keep at it man

    edit: whoa didn't notice page 7; nice!

    Whoa! Someone gave me four stars. I don't deserve it yet but thanks.
    Skeiff, glikster - thanks. I'm working on confidence all the time
    Onir - thanks. I stopped paying attention to pages, hehe.

    Recently I've been doing only drawings from life. Here is another pack of hands.

    Chair + drapery. Drawn at home.

    Doodles from life...

    I started going to the drawing & painting workshops once a week. Very expensive but it's the only place where I can draw nude figure. Here's drawing from yesterday on a very large format...

    Awesome life drawings! I really like the drapery study. The lighting is nice. Keep it up!

    Progress - that's all I have to say mate Your skills are growing with every update. The nude girl looks great - nice job showing form of her body, minor anatomy issues - her feet are not even and her head looks a bit weird.

    Skeiff - thanks.
    thirdeye - nice to hear that I'm progressing. It's all about concentration . Thanks for dropping by.

    Today I sketched figures from hi-res photos on A2 format. About 3 hours for each.

    Too short legs here. Gotta measure harder :/.


    Edit: I covered my drawing with photo on transparent layer in PS. I was wrong. Her lower part is really shorter than upper part .

    hey farvus!

    good collection of studies you've got going here. On the drapery, there seems to be some strange lighting and shadowing going on. For example, the chair legs, the cast shadow doesn't correspond with the illuminated side. Or is there a stronger light coming from top?

    oh yeah, some of the hands are pretty much dead-on too... accurate...

    and gratz on page 7! heheh

    Great job on those hands.. and I like the drapery and especially the life drawings from the first update... these second batch are good, but I think they're lacking a unity that makes life drawings feel so vital and alive... I have the same problem... I keep focusing on seperate parts... and I lose the "whole"

    Have you heard of the envelope method of blocking in? that may help...

    hey farvus, great updates. that drapery study looks reaally good, really impressive man; the hands as well, came out really well. nice nude drawings as well, the first of the three looks the best to me, came out great. the last two look good as well, though I do agree with glikster on the unity thing ( I do understand that it is definitely harder to draw from a photo than from life, so that probably comes into effect a bit). nice stuff though man, really nice studies from life

    machzero - thanks. I think you're right about the shadow.
    glikster - I'm trying to work out how build tones. I think I'm slowly starting to understand some things. Yes. I know envelope method. It's extremely helpful. Thanks a lot for noticing some mistakes.
    Onir - Thanks. Still photos are very useful .
    hpslashluvr - Thanks.

    Large format from photo.

    Anatomy studies.

    i really admire your arm studies. it seems like when you are in pen you know where to place most of your lines but with the pencil rendering of the girl with the pole, the lines are too random. it may be personal but the shading should be softer on a girl.

    hpslashluvr - thanks for comment. My pen sketches were usually done from life or reference so it was easier for me to make single lines.

    I watched today some sample of gnomon video. I realised that I always start to sketch with very thick lines so it's easy to make random lines. Here's a bit improved sketching.

    hey Farvus, nice stuff you've got goin here; I can definitely see an improvement in these sketches, they look alot cleaner. I like the diversity in your imagination sketches as well, lookin good. but yea I would say not dropping those heavy lines to begin with has definitely made a nice improvement in your sketches; keep it up

    Efficient figure studies http://img140.imageshack.us/img140/5599/sk3614hl.jpg. Are these your own planar analysis or from a book, website etc.?

    Onir - thanks.
    armando - I sketched these from one japanese website - http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~zm5s-nkmr/index.html
    It doesn't matter if you don't know japanese. Images are most useful there. Try those round buttons.

    Here's some fast doodle. I think I placed the mouth wrongly but I'm half asleep so... good night

    hey farvus, nice updates, pencil work is looking good. I like the blocking in on the chair in the figure drawing on your most recent update, something I'm trying to get better with. the guy holding the fish looks good as well, though his forward shoulder looks a little awkward; must say I like the diversity of your imagination sketches, not stuff that's seen alot. keep it up

    Onir - Thanks. I always try to vary my imagination sketches but I'm not very satisfied with desing.

    I'm working on shoulders here.

    Applying what I learned to some character sketch. Otherwise I will forget it really fast.

    hey farvus,

    Love the hogarth studies! which book is that? The dynamic anatomy one? Was out hunting for his books the other day, only found the facial one. And it was shrinkwrapped, so couldn't browse inside.

    regarding the value studies with the wooden mannequin, did you try turning off the lights and only using one strong light? I notice in a normal lighted room, there's too much ambient light plus reflected light. You seem to have two seperate lights to left and right for differing body parts.

    oh yeah, your self portrait thread is pretty cool too. They all look like the same person! heh.

    Great anatomy studies! In This one however, the torso looks much out of perspective, like it's quadratic or something.

    You push your imagination, which is great and study on the side which is even greater. You'll be the greatest someday!

    glikster - thanks!
    machzero - It's "Dynamic drawing hands". There were two lights. One from the desk lamp and the main light which was quite necessary for me beacause I wanted to see what I'm drawing . Thanks for comment.
    ~Faust~ - Yes. He's a bit too wide in torso . Gotta work on proportions more .

    It's one year of my sketchbook. Hurray .
    Recently I've been sketching a lot of people from life. It's fun.

    I went to the forest and found some interesting scene for composition. In the middle of drawing it started to rain. You might find some small stains from raindrops here.

    Later I went to some trading centre and started sketching people. Brush pen is the fastest tool so it's perfect for this.

    Two hands from Hogarth.

    Next day I went to the park. People from life.

    Two speedpaintings made for Fellah's doodle thread.
