I envy your skill with drawing lovely hands.

beth thank you
eyestrain I'm pretty sure you meant that for Marlee instead...
plissken here it is!
banged around on the piano today, taking a little rest from a week of school. I kind of regret not going on to take my diploma...it would give me pressure to practice properly.
I wish CA had a mass uploader not that I'm particularly prolific or anything but it would be nice. the categories make it a pain mostly.
1-4: some people from http://www.pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html - I like this much better than posemaniacs.
5: I promised enviro studies SO HERE THEY ARE (took quite a long time on each of them compared to the figure ones) they're my first tries, pretty much, so advice and crits always appreciated
6: I have this friend. Anything she draws looks like rocks (or at least Cubist). She likes drawing hard edges and planes. While I can't draw rocks at all and like soft squishy female bodies...
Good so far but on the last pic the brownish water looks a bit like its flowing down like a waterfall instead of lying flat, I don't know if that was what you wanted though. Anyways, keep it up.
"How'd you like them apples?"
some great drawings in here, keep it up! i love the fluidity of your figure sketches.
Your school sounds kind of scary...but that little workspace looks really nice/cute. I see a lot of good things going on here. Keep up the life drawing and all that. And I agree, I like doing gestures from photos much more than posemaniacs.
For your newest digipaints, try to start thinking more about edges if you're not already. Elwell's post is a great place to start.
Keep it up!
Well, thank you.here it is!
You are right this pixelovely is much better than posemaniacs,
and you did those gestures great.
Plus you are starting to rock these environments real nicely.
Way to go.
Oh hello again~
The gestures are looking good, and I must say, your last studies makes me want to paint some landscapes. I'm not in much of a state to crit yours, since I barely ever touch landscapes, so just keep on experimenting.
How would your teacher know you'd posted stuff? I can't see it hurting and you may get comments to improve. Studies are fine for the moment. I like your pen sketches.
Black Spot it's not about the teachers knowing, actually - more of if the exam board finds out there's a high chance of complications arising regarding your final grade. There's been one such case from my school, so we've all been advised to play it safe. Once bitten, twice shy. I'd love to be able to post coursework stuff here though!
Naidy, Plissken, Brent Thanks!
Eek It's not that bad...though I guess it can be considered a very "competitive" school. Just read Elwell's post, will print it out at school and paste it in my workspace.
dsacc Heh, no that was not what I wanted. It will take some time for me to get used to doing environments.
It's Chinese New Year, which means lots of food and no time to do homework. Today we have a friend from choir, looking rather unlike herself. Done from a photo. I was so worried about making the eyes too large that they ended up smaller than the ref instead...and she had a funny expression on her face which explains the slightly odd looking mouth area.
new year holidays are over...in other news, I got a Kindle 3
front page photo from today's paper. I should draw from newspapers more often. The only problem is with darker areas the values are a bit hard to judge.
That and all the ink ends up on your hands after that. The ink used for our local papers is pretty bad in terms of hand-dirtying power.
you have some good stuff here!
keep up the good work \o/
You're really improving here! (even if you dont' see it ) My advice for the enviros is to block them in more , use a hard 100% opacity brush and really don't be afraid to go big with it. Don't be afraid to pick simpler enviros, and don't be afraid to simplify the ones you pick. Use big, accurate brushstrokes and really THINK HARD about why you're making each mark!! Make sure you map it out first, and my rule is for every 4 ref'd ones, do one from imagination! You'll get great at them , don't worry, its all in the practice.
Okay, lets see some more now!
Really like the last two posts.
And it's good to see you're evaluating your own work, something I have to get in the habit of doing myself.
Anyways, hope to see some more from you soon, keep up the good work!
cool i like your studies , About the face that you drew it and said there are
some error like the eyes too far from each other, do you know there are
many people have wider than the one which you've drawing it
keep it up my friend
my sketch book

Your work is strong, and i take it your studying some form of art too by the sounds of it?
not quite sure i like the over analising of your own work, i admit it can be a good way to learn, but i dont know if its the best option for you as such!
i just found in the first few pages more loose drawings, seemed more exciting than your more recent stuff. just a thought :] keep up the work tho!
Awesome , you did a great work at the environment in post #154
qlotzan Really? I'm sticking too rigidly to proportion guides then...
Providenc wow I never thought about that before. I don't really feel too 'tight' though :/ but you are right, the enjoyment factor has gone down a little when i draw.
Marlee thanks for the advice!
Everyone else Thanks for stopping by
little blobby today. I love this, it's so cute. Really quick photoshop doodle with the school's gigantic intuos (the kind with the screen as tablet). This one has 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity yet it feels a hundred times smoother than my new intuos4 (2048 levels)...not sure why. Have to muck around in the settings a little.
Sorry no drawing today, haven't had time to scan my notes. Anyway I am currently torn between two ideas for my coursework. Idea A is more 'normal', illustration and books and stuff - good for showing off technical chops. Idea B is a bit more experimental, involves film (cameras) but due to the nature of the installation I have in mind it won't "do my skills justice" (as a friend put it). Help please. Need to choose one really soon or I will never start on my coursework and subsequently neglect my studies while trying to make up for lost time. I like both ideas equally.

not sure about the context or your particular situation, but i would say that you're probably not 100% ready to display your drawing skills just yet, unless you go for something that isn't too ambitious. personally it depends on your own confidence.. you should have a gut feeling about which is the best to choose.
good stuff anyway. keep plugging away - it takes ages, i know..
Almost immediately after posting that I picked idea B.
In school now, which means a scanner and an essay test tomorrow. Am going to try just understanding and not memorizing the notes for this test - don't think it will result in a good grade though. It's ridiculous how Economics is graded here...also, 800+ words in 45 minutes? That's insanity!
doodles on my notes:
1. Disney-inspired girl (uploaded it after 4, sorry)
2. umm...this one looks pretty weird
3. based off a split-second glance at my friend
^ quick piccy posted in featheredface's sb
computing assignment+quiz+presentation due tomorrow, interview on monday, general paper essay to write first thing in the morning...
my brother is hitting my piano! and he doesn't want to stop!
my pianooooo T_T
Hey Krysjez, Thanks for posting here. I think that the most skill a young artist can develop is excitement and passion for making art. Studies are definitely good and I can already see improvement. But one thing I can tell you from personal experience is to not let art become a chore. Always make it fun.
For Science- Sketchbook!
good studies , i see you are working hard , #4 drawing in post #176 is so cool and familiar .
1. sort of looks like someone I know...
2. some random
3. entry for contest, painted over photo
read through the Hunger Games trilogy yesterday instead of...I dunno. Wrote two essays today though. Standard econs ones, but still.
I've somehow managed to win myself two book prizes from the school. It's quite ironic, since my test results aren't all that fab right now. Still, math is just like drawing, and if I practice enough these two weeks I should be able to do all right in my upcoming exams. There's a general paper one this Friday, then a week of school holidays (just a study break really)
It's terrifying to think I'll be taking A levels this year! And I'll have to magic my art skills up by October if I want to send in Art Supplements for uni applications in time. Maybe even earlier, if I decide to apply for early decision.
right, enough ramble, a quick drawing from photo:
