    Dude, you just have studies coming out the yin yang here. Good for you. I can see things getting tighter and tighter. You have any finished stuff that you can toss in for fun so that we can see how you can apply what you are have learned to this point? Just a thought.

    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    Whoa I'm amazed that so many people replied to my scetches during my absence the last week. Even more that I am on page 2 now! WOW

    Well, to say the last week was bad art-wise would be an understatement. I only produced shit. And I didn't even drew everyday cause of tiredness. I blame the first 2 seasons of 24 i got as a birthday gift for that. Thankfully I watched all episodes now and can go on creating some stuff. (The 3rd season comes out in July here... Very dark times ahead of me... )

    Thanks for your replies, I really apprechiate it, I felt very bad about my art the last days and reading your encouraging comments really makes me want to draw more again.

    @ Talmir: Thanks man, I will! I think the nervousness of my penstrokes will get better, too. With practice.

    @ Sems: Thanks! At the moment I think portraits are the only thing I somehow don't suck at . Gives me a reason to gather some skill on other areas.

    @ IanE: Yeah, at the moment I should do more Bridgman, too! It's always a pleasure to look at your studies, man!

    @ Fellah: Hey thanks for dropping by again! Yeah, I quiet content with it although I accidentially smudged the picture a bit. (It was 3B, not 2B as I look at my pencil again. Duh.)

    @ Spooky Tonberry: Thanks for the regular checking on my SB and the regular encouragement! But, who is biro? The face was some random portrait found with google.

    @ Zergaloth: hehe, thanks for dropping by! Yeah, I guess I somehow did make progress, but I'm still lightyears away from what skill I want to have someday.

    Ik zal ook eens proberen nl te schrijven maar omdat het niet mijn moedertaal is en ik mezelf nooit echt bezig heb gehouden met het ontwikkelen van schrijfvaardigheden zal het echt stom uitzien, denk ik. Het gouden eeuw boek is echt mooi, de uitgever is waanders (www.waanders.nl). Ik heb het alleen maar in een klein boekenwinkel gevonden voor een paar euros. Ik denk dat er betere boeken bestaan die je even goed als studiemateriaal kunt gebruiken. Nog eens bedankt voor je comentaar, man!

    @ DoubleEdgeArtist: Thanks man, I'll check yours as well!

    @ Tetsuo: Thanks!

    @ hylandr2: Thank you! But before I begin to call anything of my doodlage "finished" There will be some more months passed by, I'm afraid. Studies are the only thing that I get tight these days and for the planning and execution of a finished painting i'm currently lacking skill as well as patience.

    Well, I'm afraid I haven't got much for you guys to show. I made a digital head-study these days by following some PS-Tutorial. It took way too long (Perhaps 2-3 Hours just trying to figure out how this stuff might work) and it basically consited of putting some color-drops on the image and smudge it. It's smudging all over the place. Not funny, so I left the picture in that stage: Faust's Relaxation Exercises

    And another pencil-doodling that didn't suck, Girl with one leg (hehe):
    Faust's Relaxation Exercises

    Bye, and hopefully with a bigger and sooner update the next time!

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook.

    You have lots of great anatomy studies too. Longer strokes would help in better remembering the shape of the body but I might be wrong .
    Anyway, just keep practicing like everyone here .

    yay for progress!

    @ Dadu: Thanks man!

    @ Gloominati: Thanks for visiting my SB again! Yeah finally I realise myself that there's some progress!

    @ Farvus: Well, everytime I use strokes longer than that, the picture looks like shit. I hope to gain some more line-skill so that my strokes can be more confident. Thanks for visiting my scetchbook, too

    @ Mindflaw: Yeah, I will Thanks.


    I shall give you an update:

    Random doodles (Quite embarassing really, but it's what I've done for the most part these days ):

    Faust's Relaxation ExercisesFaust's Relaxation Exercises
    Faust's Relaxation Exercises

    And I did Mentler-studies. Took some of his very unfinished poses and threw some flesh on them myself, really fun exercise

    It was the first time I saw something like progress in my figure-drawings! Looking at the shit I made 2 months ago:
    The suckage
    Still some flaws, tho. So don't diss me

    And another quick pencil head from google:

    That's it for now, take care everybody!

    yeeha, nice update, man!
    I do notice here and there some anatomical issues but keep at it, your stuff becomes solid and I can notice growing confidence with the anatomy stuff you draw.
    This portraits does also look really nice.

    See u tomorrow dude!

    dude, theres some great improvement here. i really really love your portraits; they are very strong. especially the photoshop asian woman, that one was really really good! the lady with her arms over her head on the right page of the Mentler studies is really nice. i like the way you brought out the forms through your rendering, especially the lower back. remember to take care with your drawings. watch your proportions and your lines and placement of features. and keep drawing. in regards to the sketches/doodles, just make sure you take time to keep the creative juices flowing; that's really important. g'luck; take care.

    I guess since I have a scanner here I can aswell update a bit before it gets too much

    @Gloominati: Thanks for stopping by again, dude! Too bad we couldn't get together scetchin'. Next time!

    @cthomp: Hey thanks, I'm quite content with it, too, although I didn't spend much time on it.

    @Spooky Tonberry: You are always giving me some kind words, thank you so much! I guess I can throw in some doodles anytime, even if they don't inspire me very much...

    @Lohan: Thanks!

    @purb36: Yeah, I think the expression is far more important than 100% correctness. I'm just having fun and when I sense there's too much effort in anatomical correctness, I let it go somewhat more loose and remember to relax some more. Thanks for posting again!

    Well, here's some stuff:

    Some doodles

    Right now, I'm studying folds in their natural environment. Seeing how it interacts with various object. The goal is to find a system which helps me constructing cloth without ref. Making first steps.

    That might look confusing, but to me it makes perfect sense!

    I just posted into the guestbook of a buddy, it's a scetch-guest-book where you can make little drawings (see http://www.hkflash.com/) I post in there every month or so and the drawings are showing a little learning-course themselves, very funny... the tools are actually even worse than paint so I'm kind of proud of the newer ones.

    Hey Boss, you got some good studies going on in your thread since I last visited. The asian girl 3/4 portrait is really nice. Very nice rendering. Did you take the picture of the horse that you drew yourself. They seem to always show you their ass when you want to photograph them...

    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    the fold studies are looking good! it took me ages to learn how to draw folds (and i still havent got them perfect ) but i think it's one of the hardest things to learn. when i couldn't draw folds before, it made all the people i drew lok really bad. anyway, your doing some great work here! and i love the guestbook drawings you did, particularly he panther, its awesome!

    You're experimenting alot lately, that's always good. I'd like to see more drawings from life (God I say that too much -__-) but it's the truth, I know alot of people draw from photos because it seems hard to find subjects in real life sometimes, but just take a look around you and you'll realise that the world is full of wonderful subjects waiting to be draw, everything is a subject.

    Upload orgy ...

    Well, I've been on vacation and offline, so that's my excuse for the lack of updates. I do still draw every day but I don't post all of it anymore because it jsut gets too much. I try to tell myself that I improve but without the regular good feeling I get on these forums it sure was hard the last weeks. But enough for the rant



    @hylandr2: Thanks for commenting! Yeah, I feel I get more confident with my rendering, too. The animals were painting-studies, btw.

    @Spooky Tonberry: The fold-studies were extremely fun to do but I somehow didn't continue them because are quite easy to understand but they always behave in a different way in different media. I guess the next fold-studies I'll do will be in colour. Sometime. Thanks for posting!

    @Dan1989: Lately, I ended up drawing from life like hell, so don't worry You're right the world is a beautiful place with tons of subjects! Thanks for the heads up.

    @gafmar: Thanks! But you got some nice style going on, too, my friend!

    @Gloominati: Hey dude, we should go out and draw some people together man! I'm glad you like my little digitals. Programs like painter or photoshop scare me to be honest. There's too much possible, especially too much erasing Thanks for stopping by again!

    Now for the art
    I'll just give samples because I'm already tired from scanning that shit. First a prove that I'm still doing anatomy practice, but now mostly without reference:

    Studies from paintings (the usual stuff):

    And some enviromentals (something I'm new to, but that counts for everything so no excuse ):

    While I was on vacation I had the possibility to ride with the subway and of course I used that chance to make a bunch of subway scetches from the people there (btw, it was in munich and the people there are mostly very unfriendly in case you wonder.):

    Hey, sorry I haven't visited in a while. I just looked through your new stuff (new to me) and I must say that PS Portrait up top is amazing. One eye is slightly higher though. But you captured the skin tones perfectly. I love it. Great work!! Good anatomy studies on your last post.

    Hi guys! Just stopping by to give some pics to my heavily undertreated SB.

    @ TRUZART: Thanks! Although I still feel uncomfortable with pencils...

    @ darkchild: Yeah, I recognize that I tend to highten the right sides of my drawings somehow. That really bothers me. Thanks for your comment!

    @ Spooky Tonberry: Thanks!

    @ Gloominati: I can't compete with your learning-curve, I'm afraid, but indeed there's one there . Thanks for stopping by, again!

    @ Kharma: Thanks! Glad you like 'em

    Some pics, first a little pen that I liked, after scanning I don't like it anymore, but what the heck:
    Faust's Relaxation Exercises

    And a PS-Scetch, not too proud of it, but it's a step forward regarding digital painting:

    Wow! What an astounding progression from the very first drawing to the last painting. Great job with the Bridgman reproductions...especially that ribcage! It's inspiring to see such drive and enthusiasm. You make me want to paint and sketch even more. Please stick around, and don't fade away. I think we all want to see more of your work
