    hitchhiking the world of drawing (progress thread)

    hitchhiking the world of drawing (progress thread)

    Hitchhiking means walking along and trying to get somewhere. The Road is long and winded and it's really hard to reach the point you're heading for. But sometimes there are some cars passing you by and if the drivers are willed to take you with em, you're gonna move forward much faster...
    ehem. So that's what i'm gonna do. I want to draw at least one picture per day. I'm gonna put up my results steady into this thread. Comments and critics (even more) are allways welcome. Feel free to tell me what you really think about the pictures, and how i can increase my skills. This is how you can give me a hike... (does this make sense ?)

    I draw since some months. I didn't draw very much last days because i had my final examinations. You can see the "old" stuff i did on my website circum.ch by clicking on "portfolio".

    i made a lot of skulls yesterday.

    hitchhiking the world of drawing (progress thread)
    Another skull... different perspective. I really have to draw with different perspectives because i allways tend to use the front- or profile view...

    When doing self portraits, or drawing anything for that matter, try to look at what you actually see, not what youve been used to interpreting it as. For example, eyes do not look like that, and your proportions seem to be very off. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get some Loomis books, and read them, and practice what he says! - http://www.fineart.sk

    The first skull is very nice, you should do more of those, as you said, from different angles. Also, I checked out your sketch book pages, and that stuff is looking good. Do a bunch more hand sketches, as well as a bunch more of those sphere shadings. The hand sketches are looking real good so far.
    Look at what MCM has done throughout his entire thread, that is always helpful to me when I cant decide what to go through and draw in my sketchbook today =).

    Though I pretend to be, Im nothing more than a beginner like you, Im just trying to convey some things Ive learned so far.
    Keep it up!!!

    thank you amphex for commenting. I think i'm gonna get a loomis.

    I really hadn't much time today so i made those two picks some minutes ago.

    Some shaded back of a girl i think. Done by using a reference. mcm would say "lack of detail" and i think he's right.

    hitchhiking the world of drawing (progress thread)
    This one was done holding one hand next to a lamp while drawing with the other what i saw (sounds terrible, but i think you'll get the point). My hand started to ake and the shadows may be a bit wrong. Don't worry about the smallest finger, it is correct that way.

    hmm, i'd take a closer look at the index finger... i think he's getting to thin towards the end.
    other than that, those latest sketches look great - very crisp & clear. i like the simplicistic approach you used in doing the shadows of that hand...

    Keep it up man, do some more self portraits!
    Regarding the back of the girl...did her elbow really look like that? if not, thats just proof that you should really draw WHAT YOU SEE. If the girl just had a really wierd elbow, then..still..lol, draw what you see =).

    well... here we go again.

    hitchhiking the world of drawing (progress thread)
    Another Skull thing i did during lunchtime. Not lookin too good, but i used a different angle so it's what i've got to work at...

    hitchhiking the world of drawing (progress thread)
    This is a _very_ rough body sketch and it looks somehow very wrong.

    I'm gonna try to do a better one this evening...
    Hmm... Lookin at those two pics it was a really crappy day. But i think things just weren't that well. i was told that i probably failed in my final examination... So that didn't really encourage me. tomorow has to be better.

    //EDIT: sorry, i almost forgot that:
    @amphey: thanks again. i'm gonna do more selfportraits... but i hadn't much time these days so i only drew during lunchtime. (the ellbow was different... 2:0 for you )

    @golgari: thanks for commenting. and: yeah, you're probably right with the index finger... i messed it up.
