    Kubushas life studies.

    Hello everybody, my name is Justas and I'm 17. I have started taking art class this school year and few days ago I've decided to look into this more seriously and work hard. So I'm a bloody beginner.

    I don't know from what to start, but I thought that human anatomy should be good.

    I will be very thankful for your advices from what should I start, tips, and crits.

    Sorry if I make mistakes, my English is not perfect

    I haven't got a scanner, so took everything on photo.

    Well here it goes, my first anatomy studies, a pitty that I haven't got a book of it..)

    I have tried to "skin" some of the sketches, but it turned out lame
    And here is also my left hand wich I did in Lithuanian lesson.


    Will try to keep the energy up of working and making my ambitions to fulfill.

    Hehe, good luck on the anatomy, its' pretty damn hard. (: I can't really add much more to it, you just need to practice more and keep improving. Just try to really look at what you're trying to draw, your leg studies seem to start out big at the top but then become smaller when you work down.
    A technique I use for this is to begin with drawing a boxshape to "outline" your leg (or any other bone/muscle, whatever), then divide it in the middle and divide those 2 halves in middle too. This way you can work from A to B, from B to C and so on, instead of doing it all at once. Really helpful when you're just starting out.

    Anyways, enough babbling, good luck with your art and remember:

    DRAW, DRAW, DRAW!

    Hey Boogz, thanks for the tip, I haven't mentioned it before you told me this.

    Hi Michelle, it is very interesting indeed, thank you, it will help me a lot, because I will not need to think what should I begin with, those assigments look great! And.... challenging of course.

    Today was a day, definately for drawing

    Did arm study today, almost finished my abstract doodles, ummmmm, or maybe it's finished afterall? Also a gorilla toy for the first assigment of "Concept Art 101". Did only half of it, too lazy to draw another one gorilla
    And... St. Anger on my wall 50cm x 50cm.

    I need to push myself not to be lazy and draw more. And... buy myself a scanner.

    Hey there. Glad to see that you're studying so hard. Keep on observing everything around you The hands look good, well observed and drawn knuckles, I think the knuckles are the hardest things to draw in the beginning, beacuse they have to outline like the fingers. Nice to see the antomy studies at the top to, maybe a bit out of proportion. Anatomy is very important to know, and start from the bottom, the skeleton, how does the muscels fasten on the bones, how do they work when the move the body, what parts do the pull to move the arm uppwards and so on. It works like a lever . The abstract piece was intresting, very confident lines in that one. More of that. The assignment is intresting. Still, I think you're playing him to nicely, you could make him much more badass than that.

    hugs!

    Is nice...

    Keep up the hard work, draw as much as you can whenever you can. Just dont stop, from personal experience stopping even for a couple of weeks can set you back. Everything is looking good for your level of experience. One way to keep things in proportion when drawing is to use the tip of your thumb and the end of your pencil to visually measure. Also try to do some more open hand poses, but most importantly keep drawing! Good luck.

    Hey, Hugs and Weisel, thanks for visiting my SB and leaving a comment, will try to look for an anatomy book, hope it'll help me. Well I didn't wanted that the toy losses his "sweetness and toyness"
    Thanks for tip, I'll try my best to keep on drawing.

    Almost no time yesterday for drawing, running everywhere, only added shadows to my gorillas and scanned the older stuff. I know, it's not an excuse, I must draw more.

    All of this stuff is from today, wanted to try making myself draw faster, the doodles are made in school, my fast drawing sucks :/
    Did a portrait, it's the first one I did ever, wasn't so tough as I expected, did pretty fast (Well, at least you could recognise me), but I definately need to improve my shading, and added elements for the task. Also tried to study cloth, and open hand, well, the knuckles seem easier for me.

    Cheers!

    Hey everybody, a shame to complain that have too few time, cuz of school, maybe it's me more lazy, decided to take an advice to draw everywhere I am.
    Umm, not a big update really.
    Decided to start making some portraits, well I think the worst part of them is hair, maybe there is something more where should I pay attention?
    Well firstly started from myself and some freaky emotions and then some portrets of friends.
    Also a doggie-woggie quicke for 10 min maybe, not too much to a dog, is it?
    And an improvisation me + friend in english lesson "da jail break" and a funky tree)
    Woops, no doggy woggie, my camera battery died
    Thanks giggle, I'll try my best.

    Cheers everyone !

    Well, the first one looks the most familiar to the girl I drew ;p

    I guess from now on I'll try to do some bedtime..... no, not stories, shading Or at school as today, maths just were too boring today.
    Another quick portrait, some hand muscle anatomy, pretty messy though, and that darn dog which I couldn't add the last time )
    A human - chicken hand and my first foooot

    I'm drawing not for long, but my mom is already shouting at me that I should draw less and take care about my studies, but.... heck no... -) I'm having fun doin this.

    I guess I will continue "101 concept art" challenge, stopped for a while
    No sleep for me till I draw something more...
    Cheers everyone
