    Crits! Crits! Give me your crits!

    Started some more formalish anatomy studies (reading loomis` figure drawing for all it`s worth) as well as a bit of shading and line weight practice. more updates asap, didn`t have time to scan more today.

    you started your sketchbook on my bday, so i feel obligated to comment

    i think your shading is too soft, it might be a personal thing but you can try to incorporate diff shading techniques like the practice hatching/etc you did in your second post.

    also about doing body studies, i think your method is a bit TOO formulaic...i find that when i try to measure everything out it ends up looking too stiff.

    mostly just try sketching a lot looser, and keep posting!

    First reply on my notebook, thanks a lot! Also, happy birthday! (late, heh). I will try to update as often as possible, I`ve got another couple pictures to post up, but just have enough time to check threads right now. Thanks again! I will try to work on my soft shading.

    A couple of thumbs for some picture ideas I had and my mouse (trying to get into the habit of making thumbs before starting a piece, and trying to draw from life). Both were two minute limited timed. Trying to learn how to draw quicker because right now I am just too damned slow.

    You have some quite nice pencil shading there, don't worry about drawing quicker at this point, that will come with experience. Hpslashluvr has some good points.

    cheers.

    just keep at it !
    the work you do shows that you dont have alot of drawing experience so i would recomend you to draw more, draw looser and more from life, i know its boring but if you want to improve this is kind of important (if you dont eat you die eventually hehe)

    cheers and i like what you have so far !

    Hello there,

    Stick to the loomis book dude. Its a great way to start learning figure drawing. I know its really slow when you start constructing your figures, cuz theres so many factors to keep in mind when it comes to proportions.

    Thankfully, the more stringent you are with proportions and the more proportionally correct figures you belt out means you will begin to internalize all the necessary criteria for a good figure.

    Impatience kills more artists everyday! Or at least I think so. Try and draw 20 of those skeleton frame figures from the loomis book everyday! That worked for me at least!

    You have great ideas theres no doubt. Just need to get the mad skillz to get them out as you see em in your head.

    Keep at it!

    Hey there everyone, I apologize for the lack of recognition for your comments and suggestions. I tried to post some updates and my thanks for your thoughts, but there was some kind of weird database error messege and I couldn`t do anything untill after i got home from work (which was about 2 mintues ago). Anyway.

    TheGreyPencil - Thanks for the nudge forward, man. I will bust out as many of those skeleton figures by the end of the week as I can, and post back on friday or saturday if I can. And I have to agree with you that impatience is probably every would be artists bane. Which kills me because I am probably the most impatient person I know, haha.

    Hurricane - I have actually been trying to get into the habit of drawing things from life. I read it in so many threads and each time I read it, it kind of hits me how much of an impact life drawing has on your conceptual, and overall skills, so I have made it a point to try to draw at least one thing from life every day, and try to increase the number of life drawings. I am dying to get a model to practice drawing, but my wife won`t do it, she keeps telling me to hire a model (how often is it that your wife tells you to hire a chick to lay naked in front of you so you can draw her? haha). Also, you are absolutely right about my lack of drawing experience. When I was in junior high, I would bust out three or four "finished" drawings every day, and that just burnt me out for a while. If I had kept that pace up, maybe I would suck less.

    Nutter - Thanks for the comment about my shading. Since I started drawing again in the past 6 months or so, that has been the primary focus of my efforts, was to improve my shading skills. I`m glad people think it has payed off. And I agree that Hpslashluvr does have some good points, so I have been doing a value scale every day to try to get more familiar with the blacker end of the value spectrum.

    Thanks again to everyone who has commented so far, I think it really has helped me make the steps towards getting to the next level.

    I drew this today, it is my digital camera and a piece of candy in a clear plastic pyramid i got for V-day.

    here are some of the last pictures I drew before I got burnt out and quit drawing in school.

    awesome!

    heya!

    well just keep at it slowly and steadily. i think the frame of mind when you're drawng is very important. if you ever find yourself thinking about how fast or slow you're going when you're drawing you need to take a time out to clear your thoughts. because ever moment spent worrying about how slow you are, just detracts your concentration from the really important stuff...like proportions and line density and intensity and legitamacy of pose...etc...etc....
    what im saying is...theres so much you have to look out for when you're drawing..i dont think you really have the mental resources to spare for worrying!

    so...a wise man once said, "dont worry, be happy!"

    dig in!
