    Hi Hai !
    It's necessary you watch out for the proportions of the personages. This that I you counsel, this is to draw the people that you see, of some to do full. If you take the bus or the train, do not hesitate. Personal, I takes the train everyday and I have the whole times my sketchbook with me But it is necessary that you continuous and never that you abandon in front of difficulty. If you find a hard thing, and well it's necessary to do it and insist until that you there arrive
    Keepin' posting !
    C&C please to help me progress !

    --OLD STUFF--

    May 1. 2006 - "The journey begins"

    Whaddup people?
    I guess I should introduce myself: I'm a 16 (soon 17 ) year old male norwegian. I'm attending "arts and crafts" and I'm almost done with one out of three years.
    I've been kinda scared of posting here, 'cause of the high standards and whatnot, but I figured I'd better just shed my fears and get myself out there. Hopefully it'll help me get better at drawing and/or painting.

    So, without further ado; the beginning of my epic journey:

    (very sorry about the poor scan quality)

    Ok... Batman/angel thingy... mhm.
    If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark?

    Orc girl - quite happy with the face in this one, thinking about developing this into a character... And yes, I know there's some *huge* anatomical errors in there, but focus on the face, yeah?
    Greatly inspired by Fredrik K. T. Andersson's work, if anyone is familiar with him...
    If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark?

    Here's a little something I did at school... Just a quick doodle in gouache.
    If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark?

    Here I was trying some new tehcniques... Weird looking half white, half black dude... Yah, blue eyes.
    If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark?

    *Warning* - A bit anti-religionistic. Can I say that? Religionistic? Anywho, it was late and I guess... Actually I have no idea where it came from...
    If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark?

    Ok... So now I've thrown myself out there. Tell me what ya think.

    -------------------------------

    12th of May, 2006
    The Journey continues:

    *writes down sacreligious in glossary*

    Tef: Duly noted

    Update: Finally got a Wacom! Hooray for me! (and for Wacom 'course...)

    I learned how to use Guache this year too! Well, I'm still learning. I did alot of watercolour before so that affects the way my guache stuff looks. It's a fun medium though.

    I like your girl that you drew although there are some major anatomy issues. Anatomy is something that will come to you through serious practice so if you really want to improve it, I hope you'll work hard.

    Congrats on the Wacom! Aren't they awesome!?!
    I agree with Tef, it's great practice to draw your surroundings and people, it helps you learn proportions quickly.

    I hope you add some color to the tree too!

    "The journey goes on"

    I'll just admit right now that RL studies is something I never do, except if we do it at school. I plan on changing that though. I guess it's necessary if I'm going to live off of this someday.

    Thanks for all the critique.

    Here's the orc-girl again, plus some random stuff:
    If the answer is infinite light, why do we sleep in the dark?

    And my newest character: Christine S. Sade. Her name is actually an anagram of my own name. I'm pretty happy with this one. I think I'll colour this with watercolors, just bought some in tubes.

    Looks pretty good, exept for some anatomy here and there. Christine has some troubels with her hands, for exaple, and female shoulders are smaller then the hips. But you have the expression on her face. I really like the gouache doodle.
    I don't know if you have noticed already, but you tend to draw your figures in more or less the same angle and pose. It might be interesting to get refs for other poses and work from there.

    "And on..."

    Haha, I didn't notice until you told me, but I seem to have uploaded just about every character in that perspective that I've done... i'll upload something more exciting soon, but for now I give you this:

    Sorry for the lack of updates people! (not that the SSG is very active anyways)

    Anywho, in the middle of a week-long "arts & crafts" exam right now.
    I feel a little guilty for not doing more life-drawing, but I gotta upload what little art I've got to share.

    Please disregard her right hand and her face, both have been redrawn in the photoshop version I'm not showing yet

    Looks good to me. You might want to watch her right knee. Looking forward to the photoshop version.

    My only complaint is more art, lol! Actually your stuff is really improving! I also like that you use a lot of mediums like gouache and acrylic. A few of the drawings remind me of Clive Barker's Abarat books! The newest piece is looking good, and I really want to see the Photoshop version. I only have a few suggestions: Some of the lines in the piece dont match up, like on the armor on the right leg. While sketching don't be afraid to draw and erase and draw and erase. Also, watch the feet since they are getting cut-off at the bottom of the page. It's tempting to not finish them or to neglect them. I'm horrid at feet, and I've done that many a time. Overall, it would be nice to see some drawing from reference, and maybe full bodies. Your getting better at the torso and head anatomy, so make sure you don't forget the rest of the body. Will come by and crit often ^_^
