it's not the bird owner, it's the SEXY bird owner. Anyway, how about a portrait of YOU by ME, sushy? I just need a reference!
Liberty lol it is over now. It went quite ok... Though I was really nervous and mixed things up xD
Kerah yaaaay, that would be awesome! Here is a reference
Can't wait to seeeee

So this is an unfinished study/experiment thingy, I hate it now and don't want to finish it anymore:

@n1frit: Thank you and look how pretty my desktop is now
Today started out quite ok but then I had to go to school :/ We had to watch a movie (which is not bad), however this movie was really scary and such and I left earlier because it simply made me sick
So yeah, I felt quite stupid because I was the only one who could not stand the movie.
And I have to write a report about it too o.0
Updates of today are only some studies from life and Loomis.
CYBER GUY IS FINISHEDDD

thanks for stopping by my sb, nice stuff in here just a couple of things to point out
I strongly recommend studying the fundamentals (gesture, form, rendering, perspective, anatomy, etc) that should take you some time, and whereas it's never good to get stuck in any topic I do suggest going step by step, that means don't render If you haven't mastered form, don't draw form if you haven't mastered gesture...However, I'm no one to tell you what to do, so you might as well ignore all of this. Overall have fun with your next studies!
Kerah THANKS I LOVE IITTT It takes me very long to illustrate those shoes... But I do not work on them every day so maybe that is why it takes long.
Yeah I am not sure if cyber guy was finished, but I just want to be "done" with it XD I just do not know what to add to it anymore...
Andres333 I never studied that way, I do not even know how to start if I would do that. 0_0 I am working my way through Loomis now, that is the only fundamental training I get. Do you have an interesting source for this method you are suggesting? I may take a look at it.
I am still kind of feeling ill today :/
I had to write a report about that movie that made me sick. Even remembering it brings me shivers. 0_0
anyway, here are some life studies...
I wish I could show more but I seem a bit empty nowadays...
uuu griiinding animallll *fingerpoint*
Stream tomorrow, so we can chat and listen to some scooooteeeerness!
Not too early. 15+ QvQ
Dima is out of town for holidays, so we wont interfere with his stream or whatever
Love the fact that you sketch with ball point ... helps to build confidence ... and its a great medium to draw in I reckon ... lovely updates, keep up the good work!
@Creusa: I am going live within a few minutes. I hope you are awake and able to join in!
Aww too bad Dimi can't join. I want to mess with his sketch while he is watching LOL
@shambok: thanks, I like ballpoint too
And here are the updates today...
Just some Loomis:
I am going live within a minute!
Please join and watch me paint
U totally mad my friend! And this is great! Ur spirit and wish to draw inspire me! Keep it up! And sorry that i miss ur stream ((( Some time im busy a lot, and it s not like to me but i can nothing to do. In future i will try dont miss ur video)
Like those last pencils. Nice marks in them
@n1frit: aww no problem. I find it hard to choose the right time for streaming, I do not want to interfere with yours or somebody else's stream xD I am still not sure what the right time would be haha
@kidult: thank you
Ugh I am so tired. x_____________x\
seems Sushy has to take it easy for a while.
here are some studies from life:
and an acrylic painting that is not done yet:
Take a rest, don't push yourself too much, enjoy life as much as possible, buy a milkshake, date somebody cool, draw for fun, don't hurry, smoke some oxygen profoundly and slowly, cleanse your body with a shower, drink water, watch a cool movie (i have recommendations), stay sushy.
p.s- Really like the fox, although his right eye is f#*$#* up.
@Kerah: gah I really should follow your advice xD will fix that painting when I have time. This week has been quite bad for me already
so what are your movie recommendations?
tried to take it easy today. Still did some life studies though. I feel so useless when I do not draw
Somewhat older self-portraits:
Hands studies I still had to scan:
and said life studies from school/train
So yeah my right hand started to hurt again. I am seeing a therapist now to fix it :V
It is going better now too but I have to be careful with it
Does this stop me from drawing?
I do not think so.
I will draw with my left if I have to.
This one was inspired by n1frit's workflow :V
And here is some stuff from life....
and I continue...
Finally finished: http://xixa.deviantart.com/art/2008-260297397
The lines of this were quite old but I really wanted to colour it.
*yawn* I am sleepy
crappy photostudy v__v
Sushy should get back on track :V
Glad you're still following Loomis, hope your hand is doing all right now!
Inexperienced left hand sketching is terribly difficult and exhausting mentally, it's as though your mind tries to connect several dots together but doesn't know where the dots are and what's the distance between them, or why is it doing it at all.
Anyway, good updates Sushy it amazes me you can still regularly update with a full time school schedule.
@Kerah: yeah sketching with your left while you're right-handed is annoying :V Well I do not really have a full schedule, just lots of homework. xD
I worked some more on my acrylic painting. I must get around finishing it since my arm is restored again. [yeah I cannot take photos well, the colours are weird, totally different than in real life]
can't remember I ever posted this scrap:
This is a drawing I made during a livestream today
and some sketches from life/doodles:
Now I should run off to read all stuff I have to read before tomorrow @_@
@Sickbrush: not exactly 1000000 but I try to keep my "flow" :V
Yeah I shall add a digital still life to my to-do list!
So I have not had sleep for two days but I am not even that tired. what kind of weirdness is this :V
Alrighty... Updates time. And I do not even create these when I cannot sleep.
Here is something that I am trying to finish *still polishing it*
OH and school notes:
The studies are looking really cool, as well as the other drawings.
One suggestion about the studies, you gotta decide or at least distinguish between stroke/value studies and line/shape studies.
You need understand what you want to do more at this point (it will be great if you'd be able to do both though )
1. the shape/line studies are meant to study the different forms and how everything works and connects to each other.
2. the value/stroke studies are meant to make you better with describing forms with values and colors not lines.
Hope i made it clear enough.
I just feel that in some of those studies that you're trying to kill two birds with one shot... and it is not always working.
Anyways, keep drawing studying and posting!
