    Well I ended up having nothing to do right now so i'm just throwing a couple of drawings in. Don't feel like anatomy right now...

    @ Darkarts: Thanks!

    @ Tetsuo: Well, I'm wuite confident with the graphite-results, too, but I just hate working with them, they're messy and I always feel like I have to erase something... Thanks for posting!

    @ Sam: I don't own opencanvas. I heard that name a lot times before here. Is it a freeware-paint-program? Whatever, would be great to see one thing or two to learn something new!

    @ Spooky Tonberry: Thanks! I try to build my skills up in several categories. I'm not that much into perspective and environment stuff, I just realize... well that comes next! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment!

    Yo!

    I hope you're doing this daily, cause you're definitely heading in the right direction! Perhaps try doodling bigger doodles (in size).

    Peace!

    Great work on the animals! Maybe you could tie in some more face studies when you're doing anatomy? anyway, great work as always!

    Thanks for dropping in to my sketchbook. I like your last drawings from life. You're improving very fast.
    I think you could try putting your anatomy knowledge to a test and draw some figures from head.
    Keep it up

    @ Adamos: Hey, don't worry, I'm doing this daily and noones going to stop me! HAHAHHAA... About the size, perhaps I should increase the resolution of the drawings? Thanks for stopping by, dude!

    @ Spooky Tonberry: Thanks again for your reply! As I feel like Anatomy is the thing I lack the most atm, I'm doing this the most atm. But always throwing a face inbetween here and there!

    @ Farvus: Thanks! But right now, I feel my knowledge is still very tiny. I gain a basic understanding about how the muscles are working together, for instance I'm looking at the deltoid and the trapez-muscles when seeing backs, looking for the various muscles and bones when seeing a neck, and so on... But I lack any sense for the overall figure, so I won't start doing no-ref bodies until I understand that. But it's coming slowly. I'll definately start doing this in the near future!

    @ tokidokizenzen: well there are times when I cheat my precious pens with some pencils for some ugly and messy hardcore-action But in the end, I'll stay true to my pens, that's just where my true love is

    Anyways, 'nother little update, can't post tomorrow, cause I leave my scanner today. Well, the bigger the update on Friday, then


    Anatomy-stuff: (This Torso-thing is killing me... but I'm learning a whole bunch, too so that can't be bad)

    I buyed meself a great little book, it's called "Het Gouden Eeuw Boek" (The book of the golden era). It's over 400 pages filled with netherlands paintings from 1600-1700 and that in a format even smaller than A5 Just a tip for you netherlanders It's my new ref-bible, now, doing all the paint-studies out of it. Here's another one:

    You've got talent man! I really like your portraits the last 2 are right on the good shading this is something i'm working on. I guess my only suggestion for you right now is to try and loosen up a bit when doing bone and anatomy studies you're really tight with your sketches but thats not a bad thing. Good job though i really like what i'm seeing. Keep it up.

    Hey man, you're definately heading in the right direction, when doing digital painting i'd recommend using a much larger brush and to block in shapes and slowly get smalled as you refine.
    lookin good mate, keep it up!

    the most recent head study has some good lines to it. However, even though you don't like working with erasing...try cutting into the drawing and redrawing parts. I find that when working with pencil (lately that is) I can learn alot from erasing and making sure I look correctly at the figure/face/etc. I know a lot of people will tell you the exact opposite, but im wierd

    Keep it up man!

    great anatomy studies!! i love your studies from paintings, whenevr i draw from paintings, they never seem to have any life in them (i dont know why, maybe its just me being too critical of myself), but yours are beautiful. keep up the good work!!

    Hey Faust - cool studies and as people have already mentioned you can certainly see your abilities developing through the course of this thread, keep it up and you'll be able to do Bridgman with your eyes closed . I know I've learnt a lot since I've been studying his work. I might have a go at drawing some of the masters like you've been doing as well.

    @ ashrumm: Thanks! Yeah, I intent to loose up on my anatomy-studies as soon as I worked my way through my Bridgman-Book which is almost done. I get more and more bored with the mindless copying of those drawings but I feel that that's what I need right now.

    @ Kaoki: Thx! I'll definately try that.

    @ Tetsuo: No problem in being weird, dude! As for erasing: In my eyes, working with graphite is messy enough. If I start erasing and smudging I'll loose track sooner or later. Not that I won't try one day, that is!

    @ Spooky Tonberry: Thanks! Actually, Studies from paintings are the thing that's most fun at the moment!

    @ Baaaah!: Thanks man! I dig your anatomy-studies and hope that I can approach Bridgman the way you do as soon as possible!

    The last days were horrible but I did get some studies done and have finally got to the lower limbs in my Bridgman book (Kind of the last chapter). Legs are way more complicated than I thought and I'm learning a great deal jsut by copying the drawings but somehow it gets boring to not just draw some figures of my own. Thanksfully, I'm almost done and I think that I can expand my knowledge in anatomy in some more free drawings after that.

    Whoa, another update today

    @ Spooky Tonberry: Thanks for visiting my thread regularly! Well, I made my last study from Bridgman today, not that I finished learning this stuff, I will take him as a reference for a long time but the next anatomy-studies will be somewhat free-doodles. But that means they will be much more messy, too

    Here it is, my last Bridgman copy:
    Faust's Relaxation Exercises

    Then I drew a 2B-Portrait again. It's a fashion pic and let me say this, fashion is a BAD reference! The shadows are almost unreadable and the faces are not always very interesting. But I realised something funny while drawing: All what you see in the drawing proces is filtered and interpretated in your brain before you set it on paper. In that way, it is impossible to copy something 100% because you always put something from yourself into every drawing aside from just choosing the object you want to picture. That's what makes it still superior to photography me thinks. Whatever, grew impatient after 20 mins so I finished it in 22 mins Lesson out of this: need more patience...
