    4 things today; sketch of the buildings outside my room, my mug sitting on my desk, and two doodles in photoshop. Bottom left is supposed to be a guy hunched over (hope that can be seen hehe) and the bottom right was originally an attempt at todays DSG but I didn't think it fit into the topic as well as it could have.

    Oop, forgot another photoshop doodle from yesterday, as well as some shading practice I worked on before I went to bed last night. I'm happy with the way the sleeve came out, though the little guy next to him is crap (rushed it a bit) and my scanner is showing it's age. Ah well here they are:

    hey onir. nice work you've been doing! you have improved a lot on the gestures. im inspired to do more gesture practice. thanks! and your people have improved a lot. nice cloth study up there too. you still can work on your linework, i can see its already improving, but some good practice is doing some still life, and before putting the pencil to the paper, think before you mark, practice drawing the still lifes without having to redraw the lines agian..its a really helpful excercise.. i don't know if i described that excercise very clearly sorry. but keep it up! doing great. =)

    osgoon- hey, thanks for the kind words and advice, definitely appreciate it. I read what you posted a little while ago (didn't respond because I didn't have anything at the time) and I've been trying what you said about thinking before putting the lines down. Definitely good to do, and I think it's helping. anyway, thanks again

    alright, finally got around to posting some stuff (as well as sitting down and practicing); pencilwork and shading is primarily what I'm trying to improve in now, so here are 2 things I did just messing around. First was done in 4b, second in 2b:

    well there it is, I'll be back with more sooner than later hopefully

    You have shown so much improvment over such a short period, I hope I can improve as quickly as you have! I realy like the your anatomy explorations, you can tell that you are realy trying to understand the form. now only if i can use you as insperation to study anatomy myself :/

    casale - hey thanks for the kind words yea anatomy gets to be addictive once you start learning it (imo at least), so yea I'd say just give it a try; never know ya might enjoy it hehe

    Alrighty back with 3 things, 2 pages with self portraits and one of a study of a drawing of michelangelo. Took pictures of them this time to see if they look alright; came out so-so imo, but figured I might as well try it once lol. Anyway here they are.

    partially finished one I had to stop early, and the other was a 10 minute sketch

    Onir's sketchbook (ended)

    this one I'm more happy with, though I think the eyes are pretty screwed up

    Onir's sketchbook (ended)

    and my master drawing study (with a quick sketch of my arm above it ); amazing how many problems I can pick up looking at them next to each other lol.. ahh well it was good practice (mine's on the right of course)

    Onir's sketchbook (ended)

    alright be back with more

    hey! it's great to see some skull studies. they are vital to learning a higher knowledge of portraiture etc. Many of your drawings have a very sketchy, unsure line quality. You should work on trying to get better bang for your buck on your lines. A good way to improve line quality is to use a brush pen and do small studies of people in the park or waiting for the bus or something. brush pens give you a lot of opportunity for different line width. work small. over time, you can start to go bigger, and your confidence will increase. my $0.02

    Mr. Blonde - thanks for the advice! I really appreciate it; working on my linework is one of my primary goals atm (that and working on heads), so I'm definitely gonna take your advice\. Just need to get a brush pen now, probably see if I can pick one up asap

    Well, back with a little head study I did (only 3 heads not sure how much of a study that is ), spent at least a half hour on each of these. These are all from refs.. really trying to improve my accuracy so I took my time on these.Gonna look into getting a new scanner in the near future, can't seem to pick up alot of the lighter marks I make; anyway here they are:

    alright there ya go, I'll return with more (soon hopefully)

    I'm loving those studies!!
    Serious improvement in here!!

    Watch your eye placement, in that last page of faces, all three have slightly skewed eyes. Remember that just because you're using ref doesn't mean you don't still have to construct your drawing. I have the same problem.

    I haven't visited this sketchbook before. You're on the right track. For now I have the just the same suggestion as osgoon. Try not to redraw the lines Maybe use more pen instead of pencil. It forces to make "fluid" strokes. Pencil shading can be improved by doing some master drawing study like the one you did. I already see the improvement after this exercise .
    As for drawing faces. Try to draw them not to small beacause it's hard to put all the features in good proportions.

    Keep it up!

    PS. I'm not perfect in english so sorry if I said something unclear

    i haven't read all the responses...so sorry if i say the same thing.

    good job on practicing faces and stuff! i'm definitely trying to work on that too. i'm sure someone has commented on the fact that in your linework you don't know where to place the lines.....they are often random and don't follow the actual contours of the clothes/bodies. it's almost better to be simplistic than to try to put lines that aren't there. for ex in your first post with the hand and foot instead of just scribbling in the mass you could have just shaded it according to how the hand flows with a lot less lines - either hatching or crosshatching or whatever. you can also try buying a light-colored marker and shading with that instead of just with a pen.

    glikster - thanks man yeaa I see what you mean on the face, and I think I understand what you are saying on constructing, problem I have is I tend to drop the major parts (eyes, nose, mouth) as I'm shading along, which isn't the smartest I bet hehe. I'm defintely gonna work on planning out my drawings and such better now

    Farvus - hey thanks for the advice and crits Gaah a friend of mine told me a while ago to work in pen so I couldn't erase and that was rough for a while lol. Yea perhaps working in pen is best though, I do need to break that habit of redrawing lines. And good point on face drawing, really drew them small so I could fit a bunch in, but I went into more detail than I had planned. thanks again man, and your english is perfectly fine

    hpslashluvr - thanks for the comments, and yea everyone says my linework needs work lol; the fact that you said it as well just shows taht I really do lol, so yea that's a big thing for me atm. I reaaallly like that idea of using a light color marker for shading, gonna have to go pick one up. thanks again

    Well I'm back with two more things, one part is a drawing of the class room I was in during class, and the rest is just testing out the brush pen Mr. Blonde suggested getting. I really like the way it works, I just feel I suck with it lol. anyway here they are:

    Before I go I just wanted to say thanks to my SSG group members; really glad I joined one honestly, I can tell you guys all know what you are doing, and I'm happy I'll be able to learn from yall just hope I can give back as much good advice as you guys have given me.

    Anyway I'll be back with more!

    Nice work, I can see big improvements already man! The stuff I'm most drawn to here is the stuff with the most contrast. I know you're working on the "messy" rendering (hey "messy" can be a good thing), but remember that the contrast of dark darks and light lights creates interest.
    The getsure drawings are coming along, I'd love to see more drawings of poeple from classes, like around the middle of the page, I used to love to do that. Also more color. More everything! Nice work!
