Awesome stuff! The bone studies are really nice!
I'm not sure, does studying bones really help with anatomy? But then, no matter what you draw, it's a good exercise.
Hey Kurjuus, You offered some friendly advice to me, so I figured I'd come buy and see what you're getting yourself into. I don't really know enough to give you a substantial crit, but it looks like you're going about everything the right way. Keep it up, bro.
Woohey, page 2 after 2 weeks
Radio24 I'll do that I'm actually already studying the relations to even better understand the surface of the bones but for now jsut by looking at the images and reading the descriptions.
katinki it definitly helps knowing the names if you want to talk about the bones and if you want to know where the muscles exactly attach to what part of the surface. Well it's at least the way the anatomy book I have works.
lilnebo thanks for the help. I agree that it's extra work if I render all those bones out BUT I want to really understand how it works and why it works so I can build my own creatures with believable anatomy in the end. And you should know that most muscles attach to the bone at least at one end
and I'm doing the stuff from mind, I call it practice
Maidith Thanks! I'm sure it will help me to understand the whole thing better if I make it that detailed
RabbitHole Glad to hear that, thanks
Today's lazy day
study and crap in bw without hatching
Not much for today either, jsut practicing (P0195 from mind and P0196 from posemaniacs)
Deadline for the logo is tomorrow and I'll do some thumbs for a tattoo design a freind requested later today.
phoenicorn thanks! yeah, that's halfway due to my current eyeballing skills and halfway due to the perspective.
actually I'm not really satisfied with the amount of work I do sometimes, but then again it's because I didn't resist distraction like games or other media (currently I also spend more time with reading tutorials than actually drawing on some days)
algenpfleger I hope so thank yooo!
so here's some stuff from yesterday when I was out
left page from life, right from mind
and this is how it looks if I decide to draw at 10-11pm having drunken a copule of beers
Then here's the logo I mentioned eralier
and lastly practice and study from today
lilnebo thanks, you'll see plenty of stuff from mind in the next update
I'm heading to a music festival tomorrow and won't come back until sunday, hopefully from then on it will be daily updates to at least the rest of the year >: D
here are some studies until then.
Wahh geil Bist ja richtig fleißig ^^. Nur weiter so, anatomie kann man nie genug von lernen :p. Haha, cooles Logo übrigens... ja.. Kunst ist Krieg ;D
Autumnal Dream waah danke ich kann zumindest nicht behaupten das ich schon genug anatomie gelernt hab
I'm back! and Guess what peeps? I've taken my sketchbook with me to that festival, lousy output though D:
first pages scribbled in the car
and rest at the campsite
and on the way back I did nothing because of a really bad hangover
and this monochromatic thing is what I did today
Daily updates from now on I would say.
last of the arm muscles, now it's a huge amount of practice left until I move on to the surface anatomy
A fail digi portrait!
And arms! (as in limbs)
and another self portrait because the last one sucked so much
My new update scedule is btw: Post as soon as possible if I have at least 3 pics to show but never more than once a day
So this and the last update were pretty lazy outcome
Looks like your studies are helping you improve but rember to bring what you learn into some off your pieces, im seeing spots where the bone studies are helping your figures seem more realistic but some of the poses look bland and not a lot of action going on
bones are looking great so just keep on truckin
Demo yah, I'm finiding it quite difficult at the moment to think of interesting poses D: maybe I should get that hogarth book sometime but I right now the focus is on the anatomy and everything else I make is either fun or attempts at applying what I learned and I can't tell you that I've learned enough to even make the arms look right at the moment
derriere They bother me, too, most times. But I'm actually quite happy with them if I look back at what I did just 2 months ago. Anyway, faces aren't focus right now as I spent 2 months jsut on them recently. I#ll come back to that if I examined every opther bone and mucsle of the body
As for the rendering, I don't even try to spend to much time on a practice (or study where it's only about understanding the form). But still I gotta work on the rendering itself sometime <.<
Anyway, more lousy efforts yesterday D: (gaimez are a bitch)
and here was teh aim to come clear about how the muscles align and how the bones are shaped so the muscles can align. Excuse for teh scribbles, I know it's not pleasant to look at.
Oh and btw, now there are 100 images in this thread don't ask me why I keep track of that...
I actually like the lines in this one (all from mind)
ha, I found you here too! I can see you've been pretty busy and it works man. Keep it up, I'll be keepin an eye on this thread.
metalpiss strangely I didn't find you here before glad to hear that.
So it's been a month since I've started this thing and I gotta say I've never before made that much visual art in just one month. I hope I don't need to ask wheter I improved?
I don't have anything glorious to update with though but who the hell cares anyway
I've found the fun in making blind contours!
and the following two I made at a lan party, the second one at 6am , 2 hours before I fell asleep for two hours which means I felt like shit with legs the rest of the day because I didn't manage to sleep anymore xD
first one is from life btw
derriere thanks! I actually mostly do use larger brushes for the first stages, but then again the pressure sensitivity of my pen is kinda damaged, I don't get the full range anymore and I'm always using brushes that are affected by pen pressure. Guess I should get a new tablet as soon as possible, A5 won't do anyway if it comes to linework (as you can see in my work)...
Arms whitout hands are fugly so here is the brith of hands
and stuff from mind
whoa!! the frst ones look amazing, great potential in here too!!
I love the fact that you are so productive and agree with algenpfleger, that it WILL pay off someday.
the studies look great so far, but I also agree with AsaB, try not to focus only on them, it can make your figures look stiff....
One more thing.... maybe you should try too "fill in" the outlines... I mean not only studying the silouhette of the human figure... try some hatching techniques... (sorry for my bad englisch...)
but I will deffinetly watch you progress
meh sketchbook http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=134723
lilou thanks I think the first one is only the best because I "cheated" there with overlaying textures, I made it after I watched a video tut. I'm aiming to create texture like that with brushes only.
I guess your're right there, I should draw some more gestures every day and about that shading thing, I'll do it when the times right. those figure sketches aren't the ebst thing to practice the hatching on so I'll leave shading to isolated limbs I've already studied. but yeah, I defintly need to do more hatching
And now, the study must go on
and this still life was quite tough, not only because painting water in bottles is damn hard and the thing has so many details but also because I became thirsty during the process I could've pushed harder but I didn't want to spoil the fun by doing more than enough.
I'd really appreciate critque on the hatching of this one
and here are some more hand studies

woho, 4 images this time
trying hands from mind already, obviously need more studying
fail at making this one look female, but I was concentrating on arm, head and hand rather than the overall look xD
and then some more arms with hands
and gestures from old skateboarding mags
Good to see that you're so dedicated to your studies. Its coming along great. One thing, about your digital tecnique. You should really go with bigger brushes at first and sort of "build up" the picture. Maybe start with the darkest colours, then move on to midtones and finally the lightest colours.
Keep it up!
