    i like your style, jsut noticed that you draw faces sort of sideways though...make sure they're lined up properly. this might be from drawing with your head turned or something.

    Just keep sketching and keep working at it. It would be nice to see the bridgeman and loomis studies you have been doing. It is better to draw from life than photos, photos can distort, but even better than that is finding a good teacher to teach you how to draw. Books are good to, but make sure you read them as well as copy them. Good luck.

    hmm i still think you draw the faces just a little lopsided. i have it worse though, so i don't mean to offend ^^

    have you considered painting one of your girls? i think the style would make it look really cool.

    hpslashluvr - I think you may be right, Ill try and work on it
    Ill play around with paints once I get abit better, Im allready really good with photoshop though so I should try some digital ones!


    Anyway, just got back from school, so here are the rest of the pages from yesterday that I didnt get to scan:

    Ill order bridgeman and probobly Anatomy for the Artist soon, but I need ideas for exercises I can do while I wait for them. Potraits and drawing objects are steadily becoming abit boring D: I cant go outside because its freezing too =/

    Hey man, just wanted to drop by and give some more encouragement. It gets tough sometimes, especially when you hit a dry spell. But you just have to grind it out. It's always good to see nice full pages, even if they aren't up to your expectations. As Mentler told me once, you fill these pages up and learn. Cheers.

    You should probably try a lenghtier study of the eyes... I think they are the least developed parts in your portraits, reminding much of your style more than actual eyes. Eyes have such amounts of detail, that sinking into them and them only for some time should be interesting.

    Don't get discouraged, progress can be seen already.
    Just remember to not make drawing too much something that you MUST-MUST-MUST do, since the human nature doesn't tend to like "musts". It drains all the fun.

    book study

    hello there,

    glad to see you're posting with a passion. I would go with studying anatomy for the artist. Bridgeman's a bad book to begin with...IMO at least. You definitely need to know what to look out for if you're going to dive into the Bridgeman book, its not that well written. ITs got great ideas on form and linear rythmn, but so does the anatomy for the artist book, thats the few chapters at the back which detail excercises on how to draw parts of the body.

    then again. you dont need me to tell you this...you're getting them both right? go get a read on and im sure you'll be able to decide!

    im keepin my eyes peeled

    p.s. i like you style, i find its very graphic in style and that could be good or bad depending on your intentions. I would say spend more time of drawing from references, be it live or photographic, that way you will learn more about the form and detail of the subjects, which you can later complicate or simplify to your liking.

    if you study everything in a stylistic manner well...then you might not take away as much from reference drawing as you could have.

    thegreypencil - Thanks alot man, you are right, bridgeman is not that easy to get into. Ive started reading Anatomy for the Artist too and Im sort of doing them both at the same time

    I did my first subway sketches today that was a blast! Ill be doing them everyday I go to school from now on!

    Not bad. One of the biggest things you have to work on is expanding the range of values you use on these drawings. All your rendering is done in the middle value range which you actually want to avoid. You want to get darker (and lighter) than that. Also the lighted area are shaded the same as the shadow areas. Let me quote Ron Lemens- "NO LIGHT VALUE SHOULD EVER BE AS DARK AS THE LIGHT VALUE ON THE DARK SIDE, AND NO LIGHT ON THE DARK SIDE SHOULD BE AS LIGHT AS THE DARKEST LIGHT ON THE LIGHT SIDE OF THE OBJECT." Think about this and just keep practing!

    hey dude. keep it up..you're gettin somewhere.

    just a thought:

    what do you think off when you're sketching on public transport? I normally start with shape description. for instance.

    -hmmm that guys nose....it really looks like a strawberry inverted..and its got a short bridge.

    -face really looks blocky..like a like a squared potato....

    take about a minute or two and establish the key features that make the person unique...doe eyes....long neck..etc

    dont worry if you go into caricature....you can always work that out later by turning down the exagerration dial.

    hope it helps!

    sith - thanks yeah, I definently need to work on values, Ill try to push them much more.

    thegreypencil - thanks man! thats a really good tip, my mind was completely empty when I did them this week, just tried to get the forms down (and as I am pretty shy, I was wondering what other people where thinking )
    Everything moves so fast though, I barely even have time to get the gesture down! No subway sketching for this week though, im on holidays

    Last three days updates:














    Did this without ref, really needed to clear my head. Tried to focus on rendering too.

    heya!

    you're really going somewhere with those cast drawings. do more of those, as tedious as they are.

    i really like th eamount of value you've shown in those drawings!
