hey nice updates ... but booze and art don't mix too well well maybe for some really insane doodles. Great too see you are studying anatomy, if you going to put up all the anatomy studies on the wall, you'll need more walls.
Dreamworker: lovely to hear dude! spent long time thinking about if i improved at all; many say you dont get aware of progress yourself, so thank you for these kind words
OldNoobie: yeah , perhaps you know Horst Jannsen, he kept drawing portraits of himself when he was boozed, and he drank a lot ^^
oh, the walls, there you see what 20 years made you gain, wise man
now that you said it... perhaps i'll put there just the basics of the body parts i study, and put them off again when i start a new part
i did a study of raphael (one amazing MoFo )

my drawing teacher invited me, and i stayed 3 whole days at his place.i learned a lot about attitude, anatomy (his wife is a doctor and spent hours on explaining me functons of the human body) and art history in theory and in his ateliers by working. even got lots of damn cool books and stuff from them... when it's on paper i'll try to share all the progress with people who are interested!
wednesday school is starting again, perhaps you've noticed all the stuff in here's from the holidays. i am a bit worried if i will have enough time for my new enflamed passion, for this will be the last year at school and ends up with a-level examinations
i was pelvising around and did studies of the mouth. watch the shading there, a dark upper lip and a shadow between the under lip and the chin seems to be the kinda best way to draw a mouth (have a look at botticelli for example, he did it the same way )

forgot something, some guy asked me if he could get that grl from post 15, so i decided to do it one more time with better shades... i tried to draw her eyes in a natural way but i guess they looked better when you hardly saw anything than shadow there, so what you think? tips and crits!

yeah, its really more fun ~ one ore two weeks more focus on torso and i'll add the arms, takes its time but pays off
gained much understanding for the muscles last day, following ones are from thai boxers, poor sketching - but i understand whats going on
edit: and a stinky inky selfportrait

Hoi... meiner einer ist begeistert von deinen Schattierungen!
Echt interessante Bilder. Dein thread werd ich mir auf jeden in Zukunft öfter angucken... Am geilsten ist aber immernoch das Foto
Spats: Thank you a lot dude!!
Samurai Slash!: Hey, danke auch! ich persönlich find die schattierungen ja nich so prickelnd aber das geht ja wahrscheinlich jedem so mit der eigenen zeichnerei... aber danke nochmal, lob macht glücklich
OldNoobie: thanks man, i watch your stuff almost daily, u seem damn busy at the moment, keep on, your anatomy is great also, the last doodle on page 2 for example is cool and correct
thank you man, im glad you like certainly that because i always draw a little bit like that when i dont force myself to make cleaner and straighter lines.Originally Posted by Andy PWord man, great likeness on those Tom Waits drawings, he's so much freaking fun to draw.
I think this is one of your best drawings on here! Lotta energy to the line. Lotta intensity.
Keep bangin man, the anatomy studies are payin off.
in fact i do like that, but i looks too chaotic in a way...
thanks for looking in here master
breakfast sketch0ry, a present to myself, i turned 18 today
theres a text at the bottom " the coffee tastes as good as when i was 17 but drawing's better...."
Greetz from the damn cold, damn dark and damn wet german winter, i force my ass back to the drawing table you guys running around in shorts and t-shirt spend a minute thinking of me poor poor kid
i drew not much in the last weeks, but i took some time studying the sketchbooks in here and what makes them looking good...
So heres lot of crosshatch and stuff
Lee: Little late, but saying thank you is never too late i guess
#1 2 years ago i almost went crazy about that girl, now i almost went crazy drawing this (from photo, mechanic pencil 0.5 HB)
#2 worked on that selfportrait i already posted
#3 random guy in school, one of those ball pens you get as a gift everywhere
thanks man! No, sorry, it doesn't really make me feel betterOriginally Posted by OldNoobiegood to see you back at the drawing board Just to make you feel better, it's starting to get cold here too.
that sketch of the girl looks good, should finish it.
Half the work is enough, let the brain do the rest. This saves time for making embarrasing farting noises

First of all, I'm a poet not an artist. But I really dig (like) your art. So many of the faces are powerfully expressive. They seem troubled by the chaos of the modern world.
Anyway, I wish you peace and prosperity,
Sean L Nelson: These are big words! Thank you very much
Lee: Yeah, not really I was too lazy i have to admit, did some more stuff about the torso but no real progress since the last ones i will now, finally, start studies of the arm
heres 8Ball, Pencil on Canvas
some more sketching, pencil and white crayon

Once again i've been lazy quite a while
Finished school this summer, worked as a landscape gardener at a friends businessfor some month and now im trying to get a bunch of sketches and paintings together, maybe i can get good enough to start studying next year
down there, someone took my sketches of that minotaur in school and printed them on the yearbook, i was kind of surprised ^^
quick portrait of a friend, a self-portrait and a sketch, lookin out of a buddys window in Leipzig
gotta get it on with those values, i dont like my stuff always looking that rough and shabby, ok, i cant say i use to spend hours on details, dont have that patience, but somehow a couple of people made it creating a huge bandwith of values without being drawing for hours, look at koppas stuff for example
Hey, your stuff is really great. I like your style of shading, but there is just one thing that bothers me: I think that some of your work could use more contrast. However, that's pretty much it.
