DonCoyote's sketchbook - 1. March - still a rookie but alive
A little foretaste, what awaits you at the end...
Hey, now i'm beginning my sektchbook, although i'm in comparison to all the artist here just a poor fool, but everyone starts as a little fool right ?
My name is philipp, im 16 years old and from germany...
I simply post the pics now...
random heads and weaponry...
Hands from life expect no.3, its ref...
Church from life, through the window, while waiting at the doctor...
I guess everythings wrong with the anatomy, but at least no ref...
skull from ref...
random heads, only the eye drawn from ref...
Very old stuff:
very bad drawn, but i really like it.
a comic i started a long time ago.
thats it for today... I can't stop to praise all you out there every time, you are all great artists...
also merry christmas...

hey man, really nice pages, just keep at it, studying anatomy and drawing from life the most you can.

Some of your work is a bit light and doesn't transfer from the scanner too well.
Other than that, keep going, and draw from life as much as possible.

Thanks for the rare comments, i won't give up, no way...
So here are some anatomy "study" (can i even call it like this?) It's from a book, where everthing is explained step by step... that leads me to my biggest question:
How do you really can learn anatomy, and how important is it?! do i need to know the skeleton exactly, to draw better?! and do i learn it, when i copy stuff from an anatomy book?!
but now some art:
the pic above and everything below is without ref... (as you can see?!)
the things below are older ones...
and this ones for a creature design activity:
here's where the Activity can be found, it's open for everyone, if anyone is interested in...

hey don you really need to watch your proportions, that isn't that easy, but it is just training. as i see you did a good start with updating regulary. keep that output and u will improve quicker than you think. keep it up even if it is hard work. maybe u should loosen up a little, sometimes the drawings seem to be a little stiff. but i am sure that will improve too.

hey Ole, thanks for commenting, some of the pieces are older, and i hope i will keep it up, although i have without drawing enough things to learn, athletics (5 times the week training, in wattenscheid, think your from germany, maybe you know where it's at...) music, i play guitar, but i will try to spend a lot of time in drawing too... some more now...
A dog (or whatever) skull life drawing i did yesterday
some fast poses of people in the train today
faces from my book
arms and a weird eye in sportshoes -.-
i repeat one QUESTION: Do you learn anatomy (in the beginning) by simply copying bones, muscles and bodyparts, or is there a better way how i can use an anatomy-book?!?

At first my three entries for the Activity, my Sea-Monsters:
another one, but not good enough:

A comic i drew for the Illustration Activity right on this board:
And i had this before, just some ideas...
Last but not least, something for the illustration activity:
Would be glad to hear some critics again

You need some practice, especially on anatomy. But fear not- many do!
First off I'd reccomend the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain". You've probably heard of it. It's a wonderful book that will boost your skill significantly. Well worth the money and time.
Beyond that, just keep studying by ref. Study study study until your hands fall off. Practice is the key, and you'll hear that here a lot. It's amazing what a little commitment and some elbow grease can do.
Anyway, goodluck! You're off to a good start!
