    hi guys

    gnoll: hey man, thanks for the reply. really apreciate it and it keeps me running! i agree with you about me doing more environments. i will try and concentrate on this subject only from now on till i get at a decent level. the vectors is something from the time i did flash movies.. its kinda cool. i actually made a poster of the avatar one. it was the logo of our game design group (school project). it was a pretty big poster. One of the teammembers took it with him and it hangs above his bed i think lol

    mentler: wow thx! cool you checked out my sb!!! your style is the shit man... nice that i'm on the right path i spend much time in this and its nice to hear this... i know i'm still at a low level but that will change over time i hope

    got some new sketches. lately concentrating on my drawing technique and drawing ellipses... finally understand how to pull off good ellipses!! in the future i will concentrate far more on "exact" manmade stuff with geometric forms, and will do less figures... i want to get good at it..

    (ps 2nd one is an idea for a hangar for a spaceship 5th one is an idea for a big crane with a magnet to move big heavy things)

    bye

    Keep at it with your studies on figures and faces, it will soon pay off.

    Like to mention that your environments look very strong. You make your lines very neat and ordered so it's easy for me to tell what's close and what's far away. Did you use a ruler for them?

    hi

    rudeone: thanks!
    JERI: thanks, for most lines i dont use a ruler, i use my elbow as a pivotpoint to draw straight lines. for long lines i often use a ruler.

    i finally understand how to draw curves and rond shapes in perspective. i will try and draw spaceships and that next time i think. i want to get good at this

    Do you draw those with pencil on paper, scan them in and then color paint? Or do you do the rendering on the computer with a tablet? I find its easier to draw with my pencil (my old standby) instead of a tablet. I LOVE that plane..

    another try on anatomy

    hardsoapscum: thanks, i think faces in this update are more dimensional then prev updates. working on it
    thebutterflied: i draw all my drawings with a regulare hb pencil. then i scan them in at school. i use painter and photoshop for coloring. so i dont use real paint, i use digital paint i really suck in using colors imo, plz give me tips on doing it better!!!! its hard at first getting used to the wacom, but if you can draw good with pencil, then you can draw with a wacom, not the other way around i think. thanks for visitng, bye!

    hi, i found mentlers aproach to figure drawing very helpfull. i try thinking of everyting like cubes. the woman figure on second drawing is from virtual poseand the rest of these drawings are purely for learning anatomy proportions and stuff. so if someone see stuff thats NOT CORRECt plz comment! thanks im looking forward to his book btw bye

    digital

    mrjoe: thank you i learned a lot from mentlers thread, everyone should check that one out and buy his book

    trying some digital line drawing doodle, just 15 min, till i got this awkward pain in my hand wrist (pols) so i quit. i have an old wacom intuos. i think i draw wrong on it, but i tense my wrist on a wacom i guess, never had this problem drawing traditional. if someone knows what i mean, or would advise on how to draw correctly on it, very appreciated.

    bye

    The new figure drawing aproach is paying of, I might have to try that as well. heh I recognize the VP figure
    Also, you're really improving fast with your mechanical and environmental stuff. I know that's what you like to do and all your studies and practicing is really paying of.
    Really dig the latest digi sketch, carefull with the wrist and your back cause I wouldn't be surprised if that's where it's coming from.
    Talk to you later man.

    Wow great perspective studies! Got some nice work in here, something I'd suggest working on is human proportion, that seems to be a weak point of yours right now. There are hundreds of sources of study material for determining proper proportion, but just remember a human head is a great measuring tool when working out proportions. A human will usually be about 7 1/2 to 8 heads tall. Landmarks are (top to bottom): pectorals end at about 2 heads, rib cage ends about 3 heads, crotch ends at about 4 heads, knees end at about 6 heads, and bottom of feet about 7 and 1/2 or 8 heads, elbows will match up just about with the end of the rib cage at 3 heads, wrists will match up just about with the end of the crotch, and the hands will dangle below the wrists

    ashrumm: thanks

    hi, this is an excersise to work out a thumbnail. to be honest, im not satisfied at all with this one, because of the clumbsy camera angle i choose, it doesnt have the same feel... i really like the thumb though.

    The last piece is great, I love all the detail.

    Great work with your perspective pieces too, and I love how stylized your humans are. I would like to see more life studies from you though!

    Hey, the robo sketch I think is comming along well, I think it looks better than the thumbnail, I like the looseness and simple strokes of the thumbnail. But Its just 2 different ways of drawing things I guess, Loose and quick, or tight in perfect perspective cleaned up. They both have there own look.

    Nice environment sketch of Praque. I like the statues!

    Nice progress Gosu.

    You could try to hit the legs of your bot in a few orthographic sketches just to get a feel for all the shapes in there.

    I see FENGDOTS! xD Love the little doodles :3

    WIP and my hand hurts :(

    Mr-Joe:thanks dude! i agree, it a different style, but i want more of the loseness in my cleaned up version... will work on that i guess.

    Machineabuse: what do you mean with orthographic sketches? you say fengdots, and i agree, im a big fan of feng zhu's work. now, im glad you mentioned this, because now i see i maybe copy his style to much. i think i have to get my own style and look less at others styles. on the other hand, i learn very much from other artists...

    so here;s a wip of some sort of factory in a cave, digging for minerals. im very happy with the composition. at the critic center nobody response so maybe i have better luck here

    also, my hand still hirts like hell. not in the beginning but after 2 hours it does. is this normal?? anyone recognizes this? i added a picture of where it hurts in my hand. its this little bone on my wrist...

    Man, I'm getting a real "Fate of Atlantis" vibe from that enviro!

    By orthographic sketches I mean plonking down side, front and top views real quick onto paper to help you visualise the structure of difficult parts. Additionally, you can put these simplify these shapes and use them to plan out where you want certain bits to be either in detail or silhouette. Might help cut down on some of the guesswork you might run into.

    About the Fengdots, I wouldn't worry too much about them. I figure Feng teaches it because it's a solid way of getting strokes where you need them to be. We honor our teachers by absorbing as much as possible of what they have to teach. His 'style' is cumulative out of a lot of differant things, as yours will become.
