    Sve's Book (April 03 2008, Baroque, digitals, life studies)

    Hello! I would love to hear from such inspiring artists. Knock three times on the ceiling if you like me, twice on the pipe if the answer is no.

    Your style reminds me of Vilppu.

    I've even seen people that draw simliar to you make a living doing animation.

    However, I still think learning construction and anatomy is important.

    i think you have a nice developing style here, but there are some parts you could work on. I noticed the loose style in your figure drawings, however, I think you should be more economical and careful. That looseness and quick thinking can sometimes make apparent mistakes. Now that last drawing is a really good example of a more thoughtful approach! Combine that with your loose style and your work will definitely improve.

    1st drawing: haphazard strokes, the back is not done well( study anatomy), the head's shape looks wrong( study planes, anatomy of head)

    2nd : his right shoulder feels too long.

    3rd: study planes and anatomy of head, that raised forearm looks carelessly done.

    4th: breast placed too low( not sure), the neck looks too long( not sure either)

    5th: study the back, again be more thoughtful of your approach.

    6th: good drawing!

    Thank you very much, patdzon! You are very kind to give me your thoughtful reply. I need to think about it. I'm going to look at drawings and your comments more.
    Looked at your drawings at your profile. Started to understand better what you meant about an economic approach. Love the drawing of a sleeping child: so peaceful.
    Regards, Sveta

    no problem! Glad I could help.

    I just wanna give one small advice. Whenever you're working from life, try to look for the lines and its angles especially when it concerns the contour/outline of your subject. Also, look for the biggest shadow shapes you see, and map that out on your drawing. cuz even if you dont know anatomy( im not discouraging you to study it. it still is valuable info), as long as you pay attention to what you observe, you can produce a good piece. And remember to work from the general to the specific!

    Good Morning, patdzon! Thank you again for your kindness! I hope God give your A+ and the best karma for your good deed .
    Reread your comments and am thinking about them. I see what you meant but still struggling with a comment to 3rd drawing (about his head shape). Is it too flat? Wrong shape? Too cut from the right?
    Of course you are so right about not to rush to details from the beginning. Wish i could've controlled myself better. I wish I would've been more relaxed when I draw. I'm always in a hurry.
    Regards, Sveta.

    Yes, its impt to take your time and not be in a hurry. ALways remind yourself. I sometimes forget myself.

    I just think the main thing wrong with his face is the drawing itself. Meaning, it could be far off from what he actually looks like.

    I'll be looking forward to your next batch!

    nice set of drawings...what i like is the feeling of weight and flesh....also the gestures are pretty good..how long are these poses?..they are good for short time...patzon pointed out good things to look out for..i notice you did not finish your hands or feet.....maybe you wanted to sugest or you are not still confortable with them hehe..sometimes on the poses..just draw the head..for practice..or the hands or feet..try your own hands...and like they say just keep studying your anatomy..i dont know i you read the loomis books on figure drawing ..but they are of great help..especially in technique and construction..and things too look for when drawing the figure...

    http://www.saveloomis.org/

    I think your linework would need a bit of improvement..although is good for loose..loose is good..sometimes..practice pure contour drawing..you can do it thru the week on common objects you see..then try the figure..dont go to heavy on linework (on some drawings you have done good..on others the line is not varied)..be sensible..lose the line on light..dark in it where is dark...see if you can read your drawing without adding tone..
    keep posting

    Thank you the_allejo05 for such a detailed reply. I appreciated it a lot. You people amazed me. I was stupid to think the most artists are too egocentric (as they should be -so I thought ). On a contrary, you are so kind to strangers. You are right about hands and feet: still uncomfortable with them he-he. Thank you for telling me. I'll dig in this direction. Hopefully someday it pays off. I will read your notes again and again. Thank you
