    *Fetal Grindings* [nudity]| Updated 9/13 (Life drawing)

    So I've been drawing since as early as I can remember, like most of you, and it was the most important thing in my life, like with most of you, until about 7 years ago, when I just completely stopped for some reason. I made a few halft-hearted attempts to get started again, but they always fizzled out after a couple weeks. So now, I think I'm finally on the right track, and motivated as hell. I'm also noticing that I've got a LOT of holes in my knowledge and abilities -- bits of anatomy I just never learned, things I've been faking for years -- and for the first time in I can't remember how long, I'm making a concerted effort to LEARN, instead of just to draw (and digital paint).

    Here's a sketchbook. Critique the hell out of me -- I need it.

    A couple cool things

    These are a couple of things that came out in my sketchbook this week that I particularly liked.

    Starbucks sniping

    These are on-the-sly life-drawings from Starbucks. I used to be a LOT better at these, so it's kinda disappointing. That's what I get for quitting, eh? I'll get better. I'm concentrating on learning drapery right now, so that's what I focused on here to some extent. Oh, and the last one is my friends on my patio, who were aware that I was drawing them, so I could take my time.

    I'm noticing that, while I've gotten a lot better at keeping my lines, um, economic, when drawing from my head, I'm still REALLY scribbly when I do quick drawings from life. I need to work on that.

    And this is a title screen for a game project I'm working on. Turns out I'm going to have to redraw the guy and the dog (the dog certainly deserves it), but I wanted to put this up because I still kinda like it. The second one is the new sketch for the guy.

    Thanks, you guys. I didn't really STOP stop, but I only drew once in a while, and never seriously for more than a couple weeks. I filled maybe 2 sketchbooks in 7 years.

    Okay, so here's something I did this morning. From reference, which I almost never do, but I guess I should probably do more. I keep seeing people on CA saying to work from life/reference, and save drawing from the imagination for later. Is it later for me? I dunno. I should definitely do more life/reference drawing, though. Anwyay -- I spent maybe 3 hours on this. Probably longer than it should take, but, like I said, I don't do this often.

    I'm glad you have gotten back into your art and are making a serious attempt at "learning" not just sketching with out a strive for progress. I really enjoy your skecthes of the figure in the chair....they feel nice and loose.

    The digi painting from ref. is also quite good! =)

    Hey there - great start. If you want some critique - you should look at the knee position of the last girl. They're on the same height even though her hips are tilted.

    Keep updating and keep drawing!

    Thanks for the comments, everyone.

    Saera -- thanks for the crit. Though, at first I thought you were right, but now I'm not so sure. I re-checked the ref, and if anything, the knee of (her) right leg is a bit lower in the ref, due to that leg being more straight, because it's bearing more of her weight. Maybe that's my issue -- I made the right leg look too bent. But thanks again.

    ketchook!

    Here's a weird dude. This is more of a speedpaint than I usually do, starting with blocks of value, rather than an outline. I'm really not so good at this. Which is why I'm doing it, I guess. I was experimenting with a square brush that follows the pen direction. It's kinda cool how you can almost "extrude" these blocks everywhere. That thing in his hand is stupid, though. I don't know what I was thinking.

    Hey funfetus, just checking out who I will support from now on. You told me that i posted quite a lot in a short while.. hehe, seems im not the only one!

    These drawings are looking good, I like the digital background of the dog/guy drawing, good choice to redo em it will be worth the time. I also like the girl from ref, do you got the feeling you learned something from it?

    I'll be back!
