    I hve reachde Utlimate Prefetcion!!!one!

    Attachement from 7/2/07

    Hello, my name is Christian Ibarra, im 23, i live
    in Argentina, im a graphic design student here
    on its last year, i work as a freelancer Designer,
    im not an artist but im beginning to retake that
    career since its so important in todays laboral
    world, im mean retaking since i had lost that
    lets say "will" to draw ever since i started
    to study other things like programming and
    other things, anyway i have made a lot of
    progress thanks to those Loomis books i found
    on the internet and that now appear to be gone.

    Anyways, i have seen many of the art made here
    and im really exited to have finally made this post,
    im anxious waiting for your advice.
    I have seen you have many good tips and tutorials,
    ill try to work on those on the following days, and i
    have identified some problems of mine,
    i have a very insecure line drawing for example,
    and i have almost no knowledge on anatomy, wich
    i have started studying today watching some pictures
    in my dictionary and internet.

    Ok, enough words, see some of my sketches and
    dont tell me i suck, i know i do, i just want a bit
    of your wisdom...

    my latest work, i was going to make the rest of
    the body, but i realized i didnt know what i was
    doing, so i stopped there...
    I hve reachde Utlimate Prefetcion!!!one!

    I hve reachde Utlimate Prefetcion!!!one!

    I have some drawing in my sketchbook wich ill

    Thanks a lot in advance, and have patience with an
    ignorant like me...

    Hi, i did this little challenge for me, to cut a piece of paper and make 4 planes in a stripe with it, for the purpose of understanding planes more, perspective and angles and also to practice a little shading, i think it turned out to be a very good excersize since it was very hard in the begining but it became easier in the last ones and also turned out better and faster, try it
    Critiques and advice very appreciated, thank youuu.

    I made it in like more than 4 hours, since it was so hard for me and i had to take breaks because at times my tension and frustration levels where very high

    Welcome to C.A. good for you for starting a sketchbook. Post the loomis studies if you can as these could be very helpful for people to well help you out. Just keep studying anatomy, and portraits. Maybe do as many still lifes as you can.

    Also in your last post you said you got very frustrated with drawing. Try not to worry to much about what your drawing. Just have fun with it. play with the design, dont worry if it doesn't turn out perfect right from the start if you keep practicing you'll get it.

    good job so far, keep on going

    bummer 'bout yesturday but I'm sure you had a reason.

    The studies of plains are looking good. I've never seen an excersize like that but it seems to be helpful. Try to change up your excersizes everyday though so your not doing the same thing consecutively. Maybe come up with a different way of learning the same thing just so you dont get in the habbit of doing the same thing every time.

    Thanks for the idea, i think its a good one too because i was getting tired of doing that same boring piece of paper again and again , so i changed the excersize, this time to train with values and sphere volume. A little bit dis-ordered, but the last one i did is in the right lower corner. Crits comments help advice greatly appreciated as allways, thank you.

    Thanks for stopping by my Sketch Book and giving me some useful advice!

    I like your dino design! Maybe once you have studied more from the loomis books, you should go back and re design the dino, with your new found pencil rendering skills!

    That would look sweet!

    Keep it up man!

    Hey dude,thanks for stopping by my sb,appreciate the input.Those sphere studies are great,but they're all the same shape and lit from the same angle.Try cubes,cones,and cylinders ,lit from above,below,the side,tilt 'em,rotate 'em(sorry to ramble there).My point is: variety is what these studies lack.Just keep 'em coming,more!

    Hey, lovin the characters. You need some work on anatomy and figure study. But youve got some interesting concepts. Would love to see more of your pencil stuff.

    Thank you for your comments!.

    AK86: ill do it sooner or later, thanks!.

    Notorious K.A.B.: Done, thanks for the advice.

    Envisor: Thanks a lot, i started today to study andrew loomis on head studies, ill study the rest of the body more ahead, thanks.

    -sideshowbob-: Thakns for the advice, i also did those in the past, it really helps, im going to keep doing them of course but in the future, right now im more interested in getting lighting and feeling shapes right.

    Thank you all.

    This morning (i woke up at 5 am! pld: ) i studied "figture drawing for all its worth", it was a good time for learning some more shading things, yesterday i also started to draw heads from andrew loomis "drawing the head and hands", ill start posting my studies on that tommorrow. Heres my study of today, as allways comment please
    Oh and i discobvered that applying too much black makes the drawing look too muddy, so its better to leave some texture on it

    These latest studies are showing much more promise. I think it might be in your best interest to use pencil and paper as much as possible. When you're learning how to draw, the most direct method of putting lines down on the paper is best. That way, you don't handicap yourself by adding another intermediary like a tablet and photoshop. Those tools will still be there in 6 months to a year when you're a stronger draftsman.

    Anyway, it appears that you already know this, seeing as most of these appear to be done by hand, rather than digitally. Just something to keep in mind for future reference.

    Not much left to say besides more life drawing, more referencing, more lighting studies. Keep up the good work.
