    my condolences for your loss

    I can realized how hard it is to focus on the life at the moment, nevermind the artwork. Hope everything is going well and keep paving the path of your artistic journey.

    After reading the whole thing about kittens, I couldn't not comment. Your style seems very quick and spontanious, though it causes you to sacrifice detail, especially with your figures. I would love to see you really flesh some of them out.

    Oh, and thanks for the comment in my sb. I dunno if I'd call it shyness or just modesty... I've met too many artists with an overblown ego and it's kind of a turn off. But anyway, I plan on doing more in color... I'm actually working on a series of robots like the red painted one in my sb... so check back for updates.

    This batch of figures shows pretty good variety, just make sure to keep track of volumes while doing them to get the most out of it, these are all good except for the dotted line guy on the right http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...5&d=1175822830

    Evxyza92 - heya, will do.

    OldNoobie - Thank you. Fear and self-doubt...the tick-tock of passing time...all seem a bit more ominous now, but hey, what else is new?

    Shpow.Iain - greetings. Thank you.

    BohemianChaos - Welcome! Another fuzzball will go about its business.

    I know I know. I actually do have a more precise way of working, but I just get so bogged down that I don't finish, trying to work on that.

    Still waiting for them robots...

    Armando - heh. Noted. I've got a lot of catching up to do. Mail me some models from sunny California...

    my condolences for your loss, mate. Hope you can cope with it somehow. I dont know if you believe in this, since I do not know for myself, but thinking about that he is now a guarding angel for you, and watching over you and your family makes it a little easier and it is a lovely thought, so he is not really gone.
    Its also good to take it as something that strengthens you in your goals in life. Keep up with that!

    In your new human drawings you should try to avoid many strokes for describing a arm or leg or whatever. Its hard, but try to do just one straight line (well it doesnt work too good also in my drawings, I must admit, but if you try to do just one line then you can already reduce some strokes that are not necessary.) It looks a little hairy or edgy while a body has some really clear shapes. keep on practicing and chin up!

    great work on the last update especially like the 3rd and last one, though on the last one, one eye is a bit too high but the rendering is great.

    Pascallo - Thank you, I do.

    The hairyness is mostly because I'm just not certain about my lines, hopefully that will pass with time. Although sometimes I do get a bit manic when I get lazy or distracted...heh.

    OldNoobie - yeah, the middle one is really the only accurate one. Its an anomaly since all five were supposed to be purely rendering exercises. Still got to work on coherence and sharpness.

    Some more figures

    biggest problems right now seem to be:

    A. disjointedness ... parts of the forms are okay on their own but not proportional or just sort of floating loose.

    B. Still lack of solidity and volume

    still working on that enviro, have it up soon.

    Hey Bludhund, its great to judge your own work!
    Its more constructive however if you do the same thing a LOT, and
    then judge it. give yourselve a chance to improve and then look back
    with a sharp eye. Untill that time, just let it RIP and produce freely

    Some nice stuff dood. Lines are a bit chickenscratchy perhaps.

    Just something to try;
    Do an initial block in extremely light and barely visible. Mark shapes and proportions. From here use as few lines as possible to describe form and edges.

    Idiot Apathy - yeah. I've been trying, I think maybe I need to start using a harder lead or someting. The real problem though, is that I really don't have the forms in space in my head properly yet, I'm kind of feeling out and building up progressively, instead of laying things down from the start. Hopefully this will pass with greater familiarity. No question that solidity and accuracy are still big weaknesses for me.

    OldNoobie - thanks. Its a sketch of one of the photo references in Nathan Goldstein's Figure Drawing, Fifth Edition.

    Ulver - Thank you.

    hey man, you're pascals friend that was trying to make it to philly the other night? it sounded like you had a long drive.hopefully next time we meet you can be there cause it worked out well.
    i like how you are putting these figures together, there is a solid sense of construction in them. the ink work on the first page is great to, very visceral.

    Good idea with applying rhythmic line to your figures, use that to feel your way around with proportions too. Be wary of the tendency to place forms parallel with the picture plane http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...9&d=1177033417. If you draw a figure like that, place the same pose into perspective by drawing it flat on a rectangle then move it around in perspective and try to build it up into 3D, it's a frustrating journey.

    Jim B - welcome. Yes, I promise next time I'll be more prepared. It's good of you to say so, I usually feel more like I'm faking it

    Armando - thanks. I'm still not quite comfortable with the dimensionality and whatnot...I'm trying to nail down my forearms because they seem to be the component that changes perhaps the most from different views and poses...

    Some Hogarth - from "dynamic Hands" - I'm leaning much more towards the precision of Hogarth now...I just don't seem to be able to learn much from Bridgman's rather looser forms.

    Hey Blud,
    I just browsed through, sorry to hear about your gramps. You've got a good SB here and you're hacking at it and clearly improving. One big crit I have is not actually art related but rather the format you're using to save these... you should learn about the save-for-web feature in Photoshop

    I really like the high-contrast works at the top of page 2, good stuff.

    Good luck man, take care.

    Your figure studies will improve even more if you study the bones. It is in this body system that most of the proportion and shape is derived. The problem with bones is that it is something that can be told to us many times but until we see the benifits of understanding them ourselves we will never get it. I remember reading over and over on these forums how "important it is to understand bone structure" and yeah I sorta got it, but kept doing muscle studies. Then I started looking at the bones in relation to the muscles and it was as though a switch in my brain had been flicked. Somehow the figure started making more sense.
    Now, acting like the dummy I am, I still manage to neglect bone studies. Don't follow my example, you know "do as I say..." I think that it would bump up the speed of you progression on these figures to study some bone structure.
    My 2 cents. Keep drawing and posting.

    n1va - thank you. Please elaborate on this save-for-web format...why would that be an improvement? Better color matching? Smaller file size? Thanks, I've been staying away from high-contrast for a while, it seems to be a bit too much of a personal indulgence, but don't worry, I'll do some more soon enough.

    Q-Caddlewick - funny that you should say that, I came to that conclusion myself a while ago, and I have a whole directory on my laptop studies trying to find the bones structure in figures, particularly fashion models (so lanky...heh). It was very useful, particularly in the examination of the clavicle, sternum, and the leg structure, particularly the lower leg, knees, ankles, feet, Etc.

    I stopped that for a while, and had been concentrating pretty heavily of muscles, and it wasn't until I re-examined the interaction for muscles AND bones that things really started to click and come together coherently and comprehensively. The arms in particular had been eluding me on several points and it was examining my own body appendages in the mirror that tended to yield some of the best fruits.

    A big problem, I find, is that the bones are a little confusing to place in three-dimensional space. I took your advice to heart however, and bore down even heavier on really precisely working out the interlocking, ranges of motion, proportions, and details of the bones. That's a big part of why I'm putting away Bridgman for now and really appreciating Hogarth: clarity and precision. Also, I'm delving into Loomis whole-heartedly and really digging that goldmine of practical guidance. I'm starting to think that Loomis should be the basis of an elite school for illustrators!

    So, enough blab, eat art! Hehe more to come soon, had a busy weekend at work.

    A. pretty proud of myself on this one, went back and worked it over several times, making improvements and adjustments, correcting details. Tear it apart folks!

    Yo dude! Hope you recovered from your awful trip to philly!
    Your studies look good, especially B) with a very good light and dark situation!
    Your studies teach me I should get myself a book of muscles, body structures and so on!
    Keep it going!

    Good idea with these various figure studies. I commend you for reworking that first figure to your satisfaction, it's one of your best.
    The best advice I can give for proportional studies is that it's very very very neccessary to do them accurately. Use a ruler. See those wobbly lines you used, they're no good, they'll hurt you in the long run. I'm speaking from experience on this, I did a lot of sloppy proportional studies before realizing that only good work leads to more good work, sloppiness will never lead to accurate drawing.

    Ahhh, anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, and biomechanics. Just when you thought you were safe to resell those books back to your college

    I think I need to use Armando's advice 2

    Pascallo - heh, don't worry about that. Thanks, I think he looks a little dark overall though. Yeah, if you don't, you should! Not sure what to recommend though...but a good conceptual understanding of all the details helps a lot.

    Armando - Thanks. being super-precise, (at least with a ruler) comes naturally to me, but it really really slows me down...but point taken.

    Liquidjack - yeah, I always felt like that was big ripoff *pets "Nathan Goldstein 's figure Drawing, Fifth Edition"* so I still have all my textbooks. My little brother using Stokstad's Art History books for highschool now...woot!

    F. Vitruvian Woman? I made this diagram based on a photograph in an ad for a national Chiropractic organization in US News and World Report. It caught my eye because the sunlight really picked out the intertwining and overlapping of the woman's muscles. Turned out to be a great lead because...

    I. This arrived Wednesday...

    I can still remember the first time I encountered this book, in my freshman year at college, in the school library. It was like a kick in the teeth...I was simultaneously enthralled and apalled by it...so *powerful*. Ultimately I rejected Mr. Hogarth's work as mere showboating, not enough instruction, impossible for a student to replicate. Now I realize that I simply wasn't ready for it. Hogarth's approach to figure drawing is in fact systematic, logical, and quite radical. It seems like a must-learn for a serious illustrator or any artist who wants to draw 'from the mind' (which allows us to create far more innovative and dynamic images)

    great stuff you are really getting there with the anatomy. Hogarth is good for learning the bones and muscles as well as dynamics, though not one of my favorites.

    oh and those are some large sheets of paper hanging on the wall in your work space. I think the largest i got is 11 x 14. Out of curiosity, what do you use for a backing when you drawing on a sheet that big?

    Wow man, the structure in your anatomy is massively improving. I'm also getting a much better impression of gravity with your figures. It's helping them to seem more solid. Good work and post more.
