    Kei-th - sorry to hear about the markers.... you could probably order them online!

    I also think you are on the right path - drawing "a lot" is really the only way to get better....just remember not to get too frustrated, drawing is a life long challenge... For me it always seems the more I learn, the more I realize I don't know!!

    I look forward to seeing more of your DSG submission!

    hehe ok
    I checked the internet and the prisma color are hard to get here but I saw some copic but hey those markers are expencieve! a set of 12 warm grey was 69 euro is that the standard price? because I am just a student and I like to see drawings with markers but I don't know if it's my thing you understand? and then 69 euro is a lot.. and I also don't need it for school or work just as a hobby..
    And I probbably will not submit the DSG things because ehm I don't have a scanner maybe I can take a picture of the drawing..
    But do you work as a concept designer or for school or something?

    Oh and another thing..
    You did a "tank study" but how do you do something like that? do you just thing of oh I am going to draw a bunch of tanks? because I never understand that when people say it..

    and sorry for my questions.. if you get frustrated just say it

    Kei-th - not sure what the exchange rate works out to be, but in the USA a good marker is approximately $3 to $5.00 each. I this can be expensive for a student - when I was in school I would skip meals to pay for art supplies!

    regarding DSG - i think taking a picture of your art would be fine in place of a scanner

    I have been working as an industrial designer for about 6 years - I design mostly store fixtures and displays...its a pretty great job the only draw back is that due to our clients budgets and delivery dates I rarely get to design anything organic!

    the "tank study" - well it usually starts with a need of some sort, in the pencil thumbnail beofre that one i wanted to draw a large army on the move....

    step 1 was to set up the overall scene,

    step 2 was to begin designing each of the elements,

    step 3 would be to then take the elements that i designied indivdually(tank, troops, city) and in place them into the overall scene....

    No worries about the questions, i hope my repsonses help!

    Kei-th - I look forward to seeing your DSG!

    regarding the tank study - typically i will not use reference for the first few studies...sometimes when trying to design something "new" reference material only hampers the creative flow - but later on I will absolutley use refrence to figure out the details once I get close to the form and proportion that I like.

    Kasama - thanks!

    another round of male head studies -

    1 hour - black prisma color pencil and green marker

    this time I somewhat used reference - I looked at my last male head study and picked the ones I thought looked the best, then I tried to derive what they had in common.... then I cracked open my new anatomy book and did some cross referencing and tried to note what i was doing incorrectly.....then lastly I closed up the anatomy book, eat dinner, then drew this page!

    I think it's coming along, but I still feel like there are some real gaps in my knowledge of the male head.... practice, practice!!

    Rob-ot... my first sketch book!

    setmonkey - huge thanks!

    That's awesome you're also working on your anatomy! I have seen your perspective stuff really improve over just the last week or two.... I can't wait to see you jump into doing some figure drawings!! you also keep me inspired!

    Kei-th - no worries, I will help you were I can....the most important thing though is just practice!
