    heng on the train

    i spend over 2 hours on the train everyday, might as well make it useful. also in part inspired by tensai's great sketches of people in the trains.

    i switched a train and lost my sitting space. the rest were all done while standing up and doing some kind of balancing art.

    this last lady spotted me drawing her and i think she started posing for me. she kept really still the entire while. it started getting cramp on my right so i switched to my left hand to draw. it later got too cramped to continue.

    note to self: tear pages out before scanning.

    hey, man these look nice. I can see you've just started drawing 'bit more, no?
    You're on the very best way to progress! Drawing from life gives you a different view of how things work, a better one. Very good practise!
    Planning on becomming a conceptartist or such?

    Keep it up, post more!

    tigermilk - i'm not really sure yet. for the time being i just want to be a content creator. i'd like for my stuff to be made into anime, games, toys.

    pencilator - you can usually tell which hand i'm using by which side of the paper the drawing's on :p

    i couldn't really get into the mood today. i drew, but somehow wasn't able to focus on the drawing part. my whole mind's been wandering the entire day. might be falling sick :|

    Hey, I'm part of SSG XXV

    nice facial sketches, must be a good place to do that on a train - lots of people with natural expressions to pick from.

    wasn't very productive today.

    i've noticed some improvements in my observation skills, but the drawings seem to be getting worse by the day. i wonder if i'm doing something wrong. i think i need to sit down and do a proper portrait with all the right proportions.

    it's great that you can have that time on the train to sketch. check out some head anatomy reference, it will help you build the masses and planes of the head better.

    Keep it up!

    hey, good start here man. Try to map out you head before you put the features on to get more structure. Pay attention to proportion and placement. Try to think as simple as possible.

    I heard a quote once, "experience is just a list of all the mistakes we've made - and remembered." So don't worry about sketches you're not totally pleased with, practice is still practice!

    i hope that includes the ride home. it can be a bitch to draw standing up, but its still better than trying to sleep standing.

    i wouldnt worry to much about how they come out. just observe; look, hold, draw, look hold draw. when your doing stuff from ref later on you will only be that much better. keep it up man. you will learn if you do, sometimes more, sometimes less or you're just keeping on the same level. but thats still better than getting rusty by not doing anything.

    maybe see you around some time.

    I don't think it's getting worse really.
    I guess you need to forget what you learned as a kid and draw exactly what you see. Don't think "ok theres an eye here" and then draw an eye there, instead think "theres a shape/line that goes like this" then draw the shape/line. Forget what you're drawing and think of the shape/line.

    Keep it up!
