    thanks for the reply, i agree its handy to get everything in orthogonal view. to plot everything out. its good point you say, its always finding a balance in looking at other artists and creating your own style.

    I would say for your environments, stop looking at feng his stuff because I see something of feng in almost every thumb. I had the same problem, its really hard to come up with your own stuff after looking at those crazy environments from him.
    Get some books about architecture, sketch some nature, try to come up with a story that will help you create an unique environment. Look at movie stills en figure out the perspective(shot design), sometimes you can draw some cool shot by just changing the horizonline.

    In other words, get some mileage, you'll develop your own style that way so dont worry about getting a style. I figured this out on my own because I looked at feng like you do and it didnt get me any further apart from the knowledge I gain from his dvds offcourse.

    Your characters are coming along, I should work on those more often..

    Keep it up!

    re

    Those environments are great. I agree with the other's they tend to have a feng's flare about them, but who doesn't love his stuff? I think what Epias means by "mileage" to keep pumping out those drawings but also be sure open your door to other inspirations and not sticking around one source like feng. So that one day you can have a voice of your own...make your own cool dvds

    Ah you are a architecture major, that would explain your knowledge of perspective. I majored in graphic design and half way through the program I fell in love with illustration.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Hey man!

    There's awesome stuff in here, especially the environments and machines with marker rock! What architectural education are you following currently?
    Oh about the hand, I have no idea what could be wrong, but you could try to set the pressure to be more responsive, so that you don't have to press hard to get whatever you have on the pressure sensitivity high. Also Try to loosen up maybe, you might be drawing too cramped?
    Also maybe ask about it on: www.medischforum.nl

    Something that I really noticed was that your figures from mind look very full of life, but the ones from reference not. Maybe you could try to use both a little": get right pose and proportions from reference, but use your own creativity to add character.
    Also, I don't know if someone said this already, but this site is a good one for gestures: www.posemaniacs.com/blog

    Well just eh keep it up!
    I'll be checking in here more often ^^

    love
    Marleen

    pigeonkill: thanks, i have to say, i learned nothing about drawing what so ever at my school... it's pretty technical oriented. i chose the most 'arty' specialisation, wich is urban design. i will graduate in 2 weeks its about designing new neighborhoods and public places 'n stuff. nothing much exciting in comparison to game or film design
    i learned all perspective and other things from gnomon dvd's and off course this site i learned a whole lot other things. i think, the best dvd for perspective is scott robertson's basic perspective drawing..
    about the mileage, i hope i will get it as time passes..

    No: thanks marleen i live in the netherlands too! about the school i go to, check above. thanks for the tips. i am going to expiriment with my pressure power and stance of my hand. i would love to see a photo of someone holding the wacom is it 'should'. it would help me. about my figures, i started drawing people from ref last week, and it is very relaxing. no thinking about design. i know, drawing from pictures is not the real thing. i should follow lifedrawing classes. BIG thanks for the links, especially the gesture site. thanks

    here is nude and faces from ref (VP)

    my graduation project (urban design)

    hi guys, i finished 3 impression sketches for my graduation project of school. some guys at the critique center helped me and i thank them all for that. so here it is. im pretty happy with the last sketch, subtitle of the pic is something like "public space refers to existing caracteristic landscape(pasture)". hope you somehow get that out of the pic

    I've been busy lately with the project and this week will be the last, i will be finished with school and i will have more time to draw

    Hey man,
    nice new shit! ^^
    I like the first idea a lot, the one with the green thing and the flat
    I don't really have crits on this, and well this is really something I'm not quite good at so I wouldn't really know. But I guess you had great crits at the critique center already

    I'm also posting here to tell you about a sketchmeet I'm organizing the 7th of july Please click the link about 'netherlands sketchmeets' in my sig to get more info

    Keep those lovely updates up!
    Love
    Marleen

    update

    marleen: thanks! im sorry i cant come to the sketchmeet.. would love to but i already explained on the thread of the netherlands

    1st is an old sketch i've forgotten to post. its not finished, im not to happy with it.. dunno whats wrong with it but i dont like it.

    2nd these are some cube studies for anatomy. trying to get the cubes in the right place of the figure (photograph). i think, when im able to do this, it will work the other way around too, so first getting cubes and then silhouette lines and render...

    Wow really cool updates!!
    i like how you're handling th posemaniacs things You asked me in my sketchbook what I think I'm learning from them right?
    Well I think I'm finally getting a hold of the proportions of the body, because I'm drawing them so many times. And also (very important ) I think I'm getting much more confident lines doing this. Also I'm able to experiment while doing studies because I can just draw the outlines. or I can try to make them more interesting by using difference in lineweight, and I can draw through the figures, or try to keep my pencil on the paper while drawing. All that stuff. So basically I'm learning proportions, line confidence and I'm experimenting.
    I think you should really try to work on line confidence as well. Try to draw with pen and not to go over a line once you drew it. You can also do it with a soft pencil (I love my 7b ) and because there's so little time just don't go back to a line to try and make it better. Just get it right the next time on the next figure ^^ After all these aren't mainly to look good, just for practice. And it's a nice extra if they turn out to look good.
    I also really like the enviro from three posts back, and the tree doodles look really cool. I like how you're colouring one in photoshop. Maybe you could try to make the highlights a bit more blueish so that the warm shadows come out nicer. But it's all up to you ofcourse. I hope you do more work on it because it's really cool!

    Well, enough said, keep it up!
    love
    Marleen

    Nice stuff man, improving fast. Awesome studies in here. Favorites are those perspective studies, and figure works. Keep pushing yourself.

    a special girl

    Zombie_dla: thanks, yur right
    No: yeah, the most important thing are getting the arcs smooth and dont 'pet' the lines. thansk for the comments, i'll try more of them how was the sketch meet july the 7th? next time i hope to be there
    Camara: thx!
    Yautja892: thx! what do you mean with perspective studies? all my enviro's / mechanical stuff or just the studies?? because sometimes im confused what people mean with perspective studies since enviro's is also a perspective study.. sort of. whatever...

    first is a paint study. nice girl overlayed all the outlines of the features of the face.. then i painted over the outline drawing and used photo as a ref. so the painting is not an overlayed, just teh outlines.

    the other is a WIP. i think im gonna spend some more time in this one, since i really like the concept and comp.

    bye all!!

    DUDE! Awesome update!!
    I really like both of them. But on the first portrait thingy.. I like how you handled it but really try not to trace anything ^^ I know it's really easy and gets you right immediately but it doesn't help you learn something while you're tracing. That being said.. I really love how you handled the painting of the face.. Great use of lines and colour. Just one little thingy.. I think it would look better if you didn't do te highlights with pure white, and didn't do some of the shadows with near black Always try to add some colour to it. But really cool stuff!
    On the second one; loving every bit of it! Face is very nice, looks quite ancient like a big tree so ehmm well done Try to add some of the yellowish highlights you have on the tree face, on the grass as well. And you could try to add a hint of blue in the background for atmospheric perspective. Great stuff! I hope to see more of it soon.

    so eh yeah.. Keep it up hihi ^^

    Love
    Marleen

    hey noë! big thanks for your reply, really appreciate your help and tips! i never thought about the pure white highlight. i totally agree its not really 'suttle' . i think i should use the values between pure black and pure white. i know the tracing isn't really cool, but i just wanted to focus on the painting and expriment with paint style. getting the outlines right is everything imo.. so yeah, i definatly have to do that in the future.

    i plan to do jan peter balkenende next for painting excersise, that will be interesting i hope

    i'll plan to work on the tree later. for now, i want to do some fresh quick stuff.

    thx again for the posts, i'll check your sb soon. bye!

    Nice update!
    I like the portrait.

    Tree is a nice piece. I would remove the snake, the head is in the center of the image and I have no idea why there is a snake in the image..

    Nice texture on the tree! I would change one thing, show just a little of his right eye, turn the head a little. Now its looking a little bit flat because its really sideview. I hope you know what I mean

    well i am glad to see you hav been doing more work on figures.
    you tend to elongate the torso, and occasionally i am seeing a similar problem in the face.. well with elongation of the nose anyways.
    keep it up though. see a lot of progress here.
    the tree is a fun piece too, though it could afford some harder edges. ;P

    quick sketch

    Epias: well, i think i'm gonna reference to the garden of eden, so the snake with the apple you know. thats why i put the snake in. good point on the face of the tree, will change that.

    AmiimA: very helpfull thing you say about elongating the nose.. because i wasnt aware i did. hehe. so thx! i'll get shaper lines in there.

    hi, just did a fast doodlesketch of a creature / dinosaur. i'm practicing on linequality. need to find the time to finish some other stuff but i feel i learn so much lately so i think its more usefull to do excersises then finishing pieces..

    i have a lot of pencil drawings here, but since school's over i cant scan my drawings! so i will buy a scanner very very soon. so there will be a massive update

    bye!

    It's great you're going the route of movable vs static masses of the body, those studies are gonna help somethin' fierce Liking your brushwork as well. As far as I can see, faces seem to be your weak point right now. Not that I'm going to be a sketchbook nazi and tell you what to study, just pointing it out...

    headstudies

    Rhineville: i agree that my faces suck. i have MUCH difficulty finding the right place for the eyes and the nose mouth and stuff... its difficult, and need much of practice so i decided to de some headstudies... i think i learned some out of this.

    bbassir: hey thx man. there are a lot other (better) artists around at CA where you can get alot of inspiration.

    So here are some headstudies as rhineville suggested

    I think your jawlines may be somewhat over-accentuated. The reason you are having trouble placing the mouth is perhaps because you are not doing so in respect to where the teeth should be located.

    Perhaps some skull studies are in order.

    It looks like you are on the right track! I'd say your environments are definetly your stongest pieces and you look to be doing alot of figure drawing and studies so there is not much I feel I can add at this time. Keep pluggin away at the figure drawing and your gold!
