    have a nice april 1st!

    man, when i first opened the forum today, the scientology ad scared the crap out of me... the celebrity-section is really creepy! didn't realize it was april 1st quite some minutes... but then i thought what if nature knew aprils fools? so my quick sketches became quite weird. just a little fun in between...
    tried to loosen up my style a little and not going so dark too early. creates some new problems scanning the drawings, but anyway:

    wow
    ...sucks to be an octoflea^^

    a loose and sketchy style is very Ok
    cause it´s good to be able to bring movement and comlpete figures on the paper fast
    but never lose the will to create more "finished" pieces

    otherwise you could get stuck on speeddrawing

    haha, yeah i wouldn't want to be such a creature. imagine how it looks when he actually jumps. damn, i have to become so much better to not only imagine stuff but actually be able to draw it...

    thanks for the advice with the speeddrawing, i guess i was so concentrated on drawing faster that i'm going for another extreme... will work on more finished stuff soon...

    okay, some small and quick sketches. i've been working on another one but then i had to wait in an abandoned apartment for 45 minutes. after 30 minutes of looking out of the window i got bored. i only had a small pad and a blue ballpen with me and there was nothing in the apartment. but they had a mirror in the bathroom, so i drew some expressions and a looking-not-so-serious self portrait... sorry for the bad quality, but i couldn't scan them but had to take photos...

    left to to right:
    happy camper sp" (yes, i am a teenytinybit cross-eyed...)
    i just have to practice noses
    poking my tongue out (damn, that was exhausting holding this expression...)
    wrinkeling my nose (another painful expression after a while, makes you sketch really fast...)

    great "forget to breath" you´ll soon remember^^
    what do you do in an abadoned apartment for 45 minuits anways?

    but ballpens are great
    I use them a lot
    just because you can't erase your lines!

    *breathe in -- breathe out*
    yep, i remebered it pretty soon...
    thanks for having another look, infinit! "treue seele" sozusagen, dank dir!

    i've never worked with ballpen, but it surely teaches you some kind of efficency and care about the lines. need to work on my hatching, thought. just a little fun.

    oh, and the house with is my granddad's and i was just waiting in an apartment that isn't rented right now... now that i think about it, waiting 45 minutes in an abandoned apartment sounds quite strange...

    thanks a lot for visiting, hope your preparing for ABI isn't too stressy... heads up. forgot to ask what's your plan for after that, keep me updated!
    oops, time for bed.

    cleaning up the mess

    hello again.
    following your advice, infinit, i took a little more time. and a harder pencil. and smooth paper...

    so, that's the result. the scanner didn't get all the values, but it's okay, i think... as always, crits and comments most welcome!

    thanks for stopping by, guys!
    well, right now i'm pretty bad at drawing ANYTHING without reference, so i better continue practising...
    still working on my next page, some more animals... hey arco, if we put together all our animal sketches (loooooove your last page!) we can open a zoo!

    oh, and infinit: thanks for your mail - hope your exams went fine. and there's bunch of new photos in my gallery, so i'm not "neglecting" my other thread!

    so i found this photo in a magazine. yeah, i know: i tend to taking way too difficult subjects for a beginner like me... not totally happy with it, but i guess i'll redo it when i studied hogarth (getting the books today). hands, feet and drapery are on the agenda,too...

    I have three rather old encyclopedias which have a problem in that most of the images are drawings rather than photos. So last night I discussed this with my wife. I will start using her photo's (she's a horse & animal photographer).

    Some really interesting studies.
    I think I am also going to go your way ,picking up some encylopedia ,I suck at drawing animals.
    The last is quite good, you are right you went a bit hard on the lines ont eh hand ,they are bit darker.
    Its fun to see your sketchbook.
    Keep working.

    hey, thanks for having a look at my sketches...

    arco - yeah, it's kind of hard to find a good book on animals. mine had photos, but they were all in a low quality and looked almost a little blurry... but i keep looking, although i guess i'm going to start my studies on the human figure now... great you have that "source" with your wife's photography, looking forward to your new sketches!

    bhanu - thanks a lot for stopping by and the encouraging words. you're absolutely right with the hands. guess i fell for the beginner's mistake of redrawing a bad line and emphazising it with that instead of just leaving it alone... hands and feet are SO on my agenda for the next days/weeks.

    try to finish another page tonight, but id on't know for sure whether i'll make it... anyway, thanks again!

    I'm also in the midst of studying hogarth. Definately keep it up. I've learned a lot from him already for the little amount that I've studied so far. Looking real good!

    hi! thanks for stopping by!

    dile: thanks a lot! it's a german book called "hogarth's zeichenschule" (hogarth's drawing school) and it's a compilation of his books dynamic figure drawing, dynamic anatomy, drawing the human head, drawing dynamic hands, drawing wrinkles and drapery and dynamic light and shade
    if i'm reading it right, it was originally published in the "evergreen"-series...
    it's really great having all of these informations in one book, althought it's not newly sorted by topics so you have to flip through it some times...

    skeiff: thank you! i will definetely have a look at your sketchbook then. i've only started my hogarth-studies yesterday, so i guess you're way ahead of me...

    so, here's my latest page. still working on hands and feet and general rhythm. sometimes i find it a little bit difficult to work from somebody else's sketches instead of "objective" photos. but that's probably just getting used to it. i guess i will mix my hogarth-studies with photo-ref and life-drawing anyways...

    and now to something completely different...

    well, hogarth is a lot to learn, so i did some small portraits from photo for relaxation...
    did it with blue pencils my grandpa had for his office work and i now have (about 25 of them...). they have very fine pigments, but they are almost impossible to correct (because that's what they were made for). well, as if i needed another challenge... hmmm, the scan didn't get all the values, but i guess you get the idea.
    looked for interesting people and found the old woman in a magazine. it's not often you get to see people without teeth. and the guy is a famous german politican from the 50s and NOT humphrey bogart...

    i found it interesting to draw a little strange and uneven faces and see whether i can transport their features without people telling me the anatomy is off... so what do you think?

    what do I think? bloody great thats what!! I notice your drawings are tightening up in the more recent posts, they are all great drawings but I like the looser ones better like the puffin drawing for example, you've got a great style so let it shine. This is my 2 cents: actual value 1 cent Canadian.

    nice portraits
    drawing old people and "not perfect" anatomy is important
    it&#180;s much more interresting then drawing models, too!

    now that I&#180;v patyed hard enough it&#180;s about time to get into art (and Diablo 2) again!

    see you around Infinit
