    Yey!

    I take a train to and from work, and have about 20 minutes to wait for it at the station, and 40 minutes each way to just sit around while someone else is doing the work of moving me from point A to point B. Now what to do with all that free time? There are a few options, of course:

    A. Do nothing at all.
    B. Stare out the window and wish for a Nintendo DS or a PSP.
    C. Entertain myself with internal monologues.
    D. Draw.

    I usually choose option D, and for the past week have been forcing myself to draw my fellow commuters instead of myriads of little ugly monsters, which are my comfort zone. Knowing myself, this probably will not last, but one can't help but hope. So without further blubbering from yours truly, here are the commuters on the GO.

    Vow! Nice drawrings! Lots of energy but still polished where it needs to be. Love it. Love the gestures on the figures, too. Loose but still spot on. You got it man, you got it in spades.
    Orcs? We don't need no stinking orcs!

    Thanks guys!

    May 16: more people. This one suffered from lack of sleep! I wish I could get more people in 3/4 front views, but that opens me up for detection and the subject starts fidgeting prematurely.

    And a sketch for Trash Monster for COW. I won't be able to get a complete one done though, I think. It's still too... structureless. And it reminds me of the little metroids. Somehow

    My last 2 pages in my sketchbook! And.... onto a new one. I'm just afraid of filling in that first page. I don't know if I'm alone in this one, but for some reason that first blank page scares me.

    Anyhow. I kind of went with... er... that Xena 3000 and decided to do a some more!

    Hi Ledd! Thank you for your post. One thing that helps is try to keep yourself from going into details too soon. Because if you do, then the person would move and walk away and you won't have a complete pose to show for your efforts even if you did get that left ear looking flawless! Usually I begin the gesture with just drawing a bunch of curved lines that describe the general flow of the figure.

    Try to capture the entire pose (or part of it, whatever your intention may be) and then worry about the details later. A lot of times, even if the person moves from the pose he or she was in, they'll still stay in the same general area and you can study details later, either by adding them to your gesture or starting a new one just for them. Also, studying the person before drawing them helps (if there is enough time for it) to see what it is they're doing, what's interesting about their mannerisms that you'd like to convey. Basically, have a plan in mind or know why are you drawing them: if you are studying the way light falls onto skin, then spend most of your time doing just that. Then, details become so-called "bells and whistles" that you can add later if you have the time. Any drawing that you've learned something from is a successful drawing, in my opinion. I hope this made sense

    I'll try to do a more specific post in your sketchbook thread tomorrow. But for now, I need some sleep

    Ledd: no problem!

    blacky: thanx, I'll sure try to.

    So here they are. I'm trying to capture people when they're walking, just to make things interesting and force me to use looser lines.

    Thanks guys.

    So... I've been trying to get back into studying painting. What usually helps me get up to speed is painting random fruits and vegetables. Kind of less traumatic this way. So I open Google, enter a fruit name and off I go. These first ones are painful to look at : Buuuuuuuut, good things come to those who practice.

    These are really good sketches, especially for how fast you're catching these people. I love the creature. I think some of your lines are looking like a little too rough or like they get dark too fast, mostly when you draw faces. I like the very loose style though, keep it up I can't wait to see more.

    Thank you so much for the critique, Teeth. I really appreciate it and will keep in mind.

    Here's a little sketch I did of my little puppy. She scratched up her neck and had to be collared. Kept giving me looks of anguish. Silly little thing doesn't know it's for her own good. I seem to have lost something in the expression going from rough drawing to clean. I think it has something to do with the eyes, but I'm not sure whether to fix it or keep it the way it is.

    Some people studies from the last few days. Eh... rusty, rusty.

    There were some people in costumes around today. The most notable ones: a group of people dressed as Tetris blocks and one Lion-O. Yes, Lion-O, you read it right.

    Great stuff.

    Your figures have a great gestural flow to them...and a tic of personality too.

    You are a level 8 ninja and even though you have a lot of weapons sometimes your ninja moves are your most powerful.

    I can't see any of your earlier sketches at all (just red crosses) But I love what I see from Oct 8th on.

    The difference in the dog is in the shape of the eyes; the squarer eyes in the first pic make it clear that she's ignoring you. In the second pic the shape of the eyes points toward the viewer (does that make sense?). She looks as if she's trying not to be seen looking.

    She looks sadder in the first; more hacked off in the second. Cute in both.

    Oh man. You sketchbook is amazing!

    /subscribes

    Hmm. After looking over the dog sketch and colored picture, I think it's with how large you made the eyes, and the shape. In the sketch they look larger and more oval, and in the second they appear to be smaller and (height wise, I mean) and more square. Both are cute, but I think I prefer the sketch.

    AmontilladoAg, Silvertone: thanks!

    Blaque, alesoun: thank you for your observations! I'll try to rework the image soon and apply what you said. I personally prefer the expression in the sketch as it matches "the look" little one was giving me. So I would like to mimic it as close as possible Thanks again! I guess I should also go through this thread and upload everything to CA to avoid possible .

    Here are today's sketches. I also got a really awesome anatomy book yesterday: Albinus on Anatomy. It's excellent!
