Pixels incoming. Firstly, moleskine location design notes; secondly, other various scribblings.
Brb with Loomis studies later today.

Loomis. Proportions, 50 men plus 100 mannequin doodles not worth showing. Going for 100 mannequins \ day + life drawings + some enviros. Need to make 50 female figures as well.
January 13th, 2011, 08:17 PM
200 more mannequins + 2 environments. Need to study the color theory.
January 14th, 2011, 02:39 AM
Damn, 100 figures? great devotion dude. The female face looks a little masculine though. Generally the curves of the chin are less angular. The profile looks pretty good though

Ghast, thanks, we can never have enough time.
Falling behind on ~150 mannequins atm, gotta catch it up tomorrow. Putting up some older work.
Frustrated with Loomis mannequins, want to study some form. Sketching in the subway is tricky, since you feel like making omelet without breaking eggs while being launched to the geostationary orbit in a shuttle with no fastened seatbelts.

Some new updates. Still doing anatomy studies from Posemaniacs and Loomis.

October 7th, 2011, 07:04 AM
And some more! I see improvements =)
100 more today in plans.
October 9th, 2011, 03:27 PM
Done 500 more figures on holidays, here's the last 100.
October 9th, 2011, 03:45 PM
Wow, you certainly don't lack motivation Really liking your pose studies, keep it up!
October 9th, 2011, 03:52 PM
not to sound offensive but stop the digital stuff i mean the line sketches are good but MAN your real life pencil stuff is SO sexy.
I really would like to see more pencil stuff! how do you hatch like that??? its incredible!
the pencil stuff seriously blows me away.
THESE are just flat out impressive... do more stuff like this please!!!
this and this
if you could apply your pencil technique to more accurate and complex drawings i think that would be amazing.
the anatomy in one of them isnt so great, but i can see that is an old drawing and youve improved since .....your new anatomy is MUCh better but the gradients in that one are oh so nice
October 10th, 2011, 07:47 PM
Sporus, thanks, I'll do some anatomy studies in pencil, promise. =P
As for today, +200 poses, several enviros and a quasi-female horror.
October 10th, 2011, 07:53 PM
Hey man, great energy and nice start to your book.
I really liked the sense of light and volume in this one, great job.
I would say... hold off on doing those Loomis "templates" and do his other drawings, instead. There's more to learn from them,IMO... at least that's what I find. Drawing the template will make you better at drawing a stiff template; but drawing figures in real poses will lead your mind around in the same problem-solving ways that Loomis used to devise those drawings. You'll see how he foreshortened something, how he used a lighter line somewhere, where he dissolved a line into the background, feel the volumes of the body, etc.
But by all means, draw 100 mannequins from your mind, if you can do that, per day You'll be killing all of us in a short time with that
October 11th, 2011, 09:16 PM
p sage, thanks — I've started the first 100 from my mind, but couldn't finish it today, hope I'll catch up tomorrow.
the daily grind ↓
October 12th, 2011, 11:34 PM
Didn't manage 100 from imagination, done around 30-ish.

I like your forms. And I agree with Sporus, your pencil line work looks great!
March 15th, 2012, 06:34 PM
Still working on my improvement. I've moved to hellzeine.deviantart.com and post something there, from time to time.
Need to study a lot moarrrrrr. (=
September 24th, 2012, 06:46 PM
Been thinking a lot for last 2 weeks. Kind of disoriented at where to go (to which job) now and what to learn. Focusing on anatomy (skeleton), specifically — shoulders, arms, bum (-8, legs (knees!).
DeviantArt doesn't provide a whole great bunch of people to look at and get skilled, lots of beginners there (well, I'm just mega-idealistic). I want to understand illustration fully, but yet lack lots of conceptions. Although, refuse to follow non-explained points blindly.
September 24th, 2012, 07:02 PM
your line work is quite stunning!, you still have a lot to work on, like some of your figures still look quite stiff and you still haven't quite caught the face structure though,keeo it coming, you're doing it right!
October 4th, 2012, 09:27 AM
Fenrirsgrowl, yep, seems I need to quicksketch more to catch «points of tension»
as of now, an unfinished sketch for a game. need to work on contrast areas
October 4th, 2012, 02:34 PM
some anatomy study and today's subway sketches. using 0.7 mechanical instead of faber-castell 4H sucks))
October 6th, 2012, 10:30 PM
October 7th, 2012, 01:26 PM
Thanks for dropping by my thread as everyone has said, your pencils looks good. Keep hammering away at that anatomy. Something we all need. Keep going!
October 10th, 2012, 02:20 PM
should really work more. figured out the pelvis and the spine construction, and I really hate the upcoming pose exercises. but I'll make it, ppl good luck in art to all you out there as well!
also, I cut my hand on the moleskine the day before yesterday (this explaining the dried red in it) ))) art demands sacrifice! ))
October 11th, 2012, 12:46 AM
Great job on those gestures! I see the anatomy in your last posts improving like crazy Posemaniancs is great, tho sometimes the poses are stiff. I find it better to draw from pictures (or sites that host photos of models like quickposes.com), they have different body types and all natural poses.
ps: That helmet/gas mask in post 27 has awesome values, keep it up
