    Sunday drawings*** update ***

    Ok I moved to get a new job which has taken all my time the last few months and no computer or my own access to Internet either but now I have and I hope to draw for an hour a day starting now Will update every sunday

    Anyway Have been sitting on a cafe to draw a couple of sundays though just for short periods of time ,but at least a little is better than nothing.

    Heres a couple of those





    Started to draw digitally today so I mostly have been drawing circles and constructions of heads as to get into the whole digital-thing


    I also been copying some of Villpus quick figure drawings to get an insight in his style. This one was my best


    attached image is latest update

    those aren't bad. Digital is fun, I just started doing that too. Drawing in a cafe sounds like an awesome idea...I might try. But yea, waiting to see more.

    Sunday update 2

    Ok been to the cafe heres one of the drawings


    Been playing a little with watercolours




    Styler: yeah cafe-drawing is fun...the worst thing that has ever happen to me is that the one you draw stares back at you...I don't go into stealthmode when I'm drawing. Most people seems to be flattered by the fact that one chosen them to draw and the rest don't care at all. Now get to the nearest cafe and have fun 8)

    dCepT: Will do. Thanks for dropping by

    ok this week I have continued drawing heads heres a random couple


    When I draw figures they become quite stiff. When I had a lifedrawing weekend Stockholm some time ago, where quite a few other scandinavian ca.org inhabitants participated too . Anyway I got the advise to do these figures (see below) and to draw them in a lot of different position and try to take them to the extremes and draw a lot of them heres a some:



    I have started a WIP enviroment just a house to practice some perspective and rendering.



    Any C&C:s ???

    dude those figures and the enviro are awesome! The only crit on the barn/building thingy is possibly to lay in the large tones/values over the whole image before finishing the rendering on a single area. . .but that's just personal preference anyway. . .

    the figure studies are excellent. . .have you seen the loomis books? hs studies are excellent for getting the flow into your figures. . .it's kinda interesting to draw from life using those stick figures, too - so like people sitting, etc, and just see how much flow and life you can get into an otherwise static pose. . .

    Be careful with mixing complimentary colors, things can become murky fast. Stick figures look good, as you progress start adding bits of anatomy to them.

    Nice to see you posting regulary. The barn is looking nice what program you using ?As far as Crits I think others have giving good pointers check out loomis if you already haven't and most importantly keep it up!

    Ok I was working with my little enviro and noticed how badly I made trees so I have started studying them using the book Rendering in pen and ink

    heres some of those studies (being value studies) and a feeble attempt at colour it's so much easier in theory than in practice. I posted in SKETCHES & WORKS IN PROGRESS and got some useful tips from Kanji2000.


    I just put in some colours to make a bg so I know the sky's very artificial looking. But better than just white?


    And heres some sketches from my sunday visit at my Cafe


    jkior: Thanks for the tips will use them to the best of my ability

    armando: thanks for stopping by I will have that in mind...in this particular case I want the roof to be dirty haven't really succeded in making it look that way though any tips on make a realistic look of dirt?

    vctr: Thanks yes I got his books in pdf and they are great been practicing from two of them only though.

    dCepT:
    Well it took some time but the result I think was good in spite of perspective mistakes here and there....Well yeah I´m still drawing enviros I´m practicing for this post apocalyptic enviro you know

    Mentler:
    Hi there ancient...will do my best at drawing every day Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook

    Christmas is taking a lot of time but I have at least been doing a bunch of these every day. Some day I will get the proportions and volume correct. Going back home on thursday so then I get more time to draw again.

    mindflaw: these studies are looking quite nice, my favorites being the pen and ink expirements.... i got a soft spot for that stuff... makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! that barn perspective study is really nice as well, but i have mixed feelings about the muddyish rendering of the roof.

    my suggestion on the figurative stuff would be to try and draw with fewer lines, intently and deliberately concentrating on getting them drawn right the first time.
    KEEP yr PENCIL movin MINDFLAW! RAWK!

    Ok just a small update will update again tomorrow been practicing perspective when the ground is sloped (correct word?) apparantly you get two horizon lines one ordinary eye-level horison line and a second one below the eye-level line for the sloped ground. So have most been testing stuff like that.

    Anyway heres a pic just to update From ref.


    dCepT: Man thought I kept a low profile but you remembered heh... I have started it now, thats why I'm practicing my perspective... going to work with two different drawings and see which one turns out less bad. Got the main idea and composition down. Hopefully I will be able to post the first wip tomorrow night well "looking at the clock* it will actually be later this day.

    hurricane: I do my best, mostly learning what not to do...thanks for dropping by

    Fellah.: Thanks looking forward to your new sb

    mentler: thanks for dropping by

    guggenmaneuver: I will probably change the roof all together...Thanks for taking your time to give some advice it's always appreciated. The pendrawings was done in painter essentials 2 thought it would be easy to emulate pendrawing with comp. app. and since you like pendrawings heres some older pendrawings I`ve done with a nib pen...



    Thanks for dropping by my sb

    Today I've been working with perspectivelines also I'm using a ref for this one, since the theme is A bad day in the post apocalytic version of the city you live in

    It has taken me a ridiculous amount of time to get to this point Although it quite close to the ref. The windows in the right building will be erased tried a shortcut and perspective got wrong.

    The pink is going to be a combined light/automatic gunturret/ surveilance camera....not to forget image recognition unwanted guy bye bye...

    going to put in a street musician with specialmade gasmask to be able to play. And some other people all with protective gear. got more thought but then I would never stop writing

    and with perspectivelines some has already been erased... got to messy




    mentler: THANKS... I hope you're right... at least there will be drawings paid with a lot of hehe

    guggenmaneuver: thanks man I worked hours on that one don't remeber how long. I drew it on a A3 paper. I had it posted in my old sketchbook, where I did a progress post since it took so long... so here with the nib pen and referens. The original I think was charcoal or some soft pencil. Great to hear you getting it on with your nib pen I'll make sure to come and visit your sb.

    Doing this... most of the time are about correcting stuuuupid stuff, like using a line thats almost parallel to the correct line... creates domino effect ... drawing in wrong layer, etc. Strange how much easier it feels to just do perspective my usual way with a paper, a couple of strings, tape and a pencil. But I have learned so I'm happy anyway



    and with the help lines the ones I haven't erased



    dCepT: Yes and yes... I am or at least going to try to be I just want to get into doing perspective correct with the computer and I do learn unfortunately the hard way. And you know when I get to the characters and rendering I expect you to give harsh crits until I cry like a little baby... are you going to GBG yourself btw? Thanks for dropping by.

    Mentler: Good to hear

    nice man, can't wait to see that.... will it be a musician that plays something with their mouth??? my imagination takes off like a silver rocket...

    i know what you mean... if i try to explain something it becomes an epic narrative that's not so effective. easier to shut up and draw. cheerS!

    ok been away this weekend but this is what i had the time to do

    fixed the errors in perspective added the last lines perhaps has to add more later


    I have started with the street musician have done him as a mannequin to get proportion and weight right, before I continue with colour and his gear going to do so with all the other people too. I f you don't have better ideas about how to do it. Edit : Are the proportions and weight correct btw?


    dCepT: Great

    mentler:
    I think people avoid perspective since it so easily wrecks the spontaneity and being to mathematical in it's approach. thanks for dropping by my sb.


    guggenmaneuver: Yes it will be that although it might not look so interesting when finished Anyway it kind of a two part gasmask one only on the instrument one connecting the musician with the instrument.

    motives: Thanks... you keep it up too

    Hi Mindflaw, thanks for your helpful comments in my SB. Your latest work has shown a lot of improvements, the ink rendering of the hand structure shows a step forward and in the right direction.

    With proportions I feel that it is important to study them from books, as in copying what you see artists do, such as loomis. But also, applying them will really help and pull it altogether.
    Like, when drawing a figure from reference or at life-drawing, compare all the lengths of the figure as you draw using your pencil and thumb. Such as, if you unsure about a foreshortened leg, you could compare its length to the head hight and find them the same etc.
    At life drawing I found this vastly improved my understanding of proportions.
