I saw the site a couple of years ago and i was quite interested in it.I didnt
join it because i made the fatal mistake of using Deviantart too post anything
i did.Recently joined too see how it really is.
I guess i dont have anything else to say except to post artwork.

3 Pieces of scetching i did.
First one was kinda fun to do.Took a few of the poeple i know and i tried to make them caricatures.I dont think i succeded that well.
Second one was me trying to draw realistically some of my classmates and all of them look like 60-somethings.Also Anatomy fail.
Third one is a fractal.Nuff said.
Just realised that i didnt finish the final letter of the fractal image up there.
Anyways 3 more pieces.
I tried my best to remove the lines from my textbook but too no avail.
Sorry for the double post but the second and third images dont seem to load in the iamge attachment manager.
Nice start Keep drawing!
nice start, I just think you need to start working on your fundamental skills before you get into drawing from imagination.
two books i'd recommend:
"drawing on the right side of the brain" will teach you about how important seeing is to drawing. it's the kind of book you can skip through and ignore a lot of, but the chapters about symbols are a must-read.
any book by andrew loomis (free online, out of print) will teach you the basics of anatomy and perspective, and how to construct drawings correctly. that'll get you started on drawing the right way, and over time it'll change the way you draw to a more professional approach.
what you need to do now is studies, studies, and more studies. draw from life if you can, from photos/internet if you can't. if you can find a mentor who'll give you honest (=harsh) feedback that'll be a huge help too
hope this helps
Thanks both for the posts you made.I apriciate it.
Now NeonDuck i did find those Andrew Loomis books (Seriously those are amazing.If i could print them i would take them too school, they are that addictive and helpfull), i couldnt find the "Drawing with the right side of the brain".
Even if i did i dont have a credit card so i couldnt buy it.
Anyways thanks for those suggestions they are massive help.
BrB Learning Anatomy and how to draw worth a damn.
Oh and another small piece i just recently got to finishing.
This one i asked a friend to pose for me but i think i got a little off model.
Heh, just noticed that the guy up there looks like his holding a flux capacitor in his belt.
Anyways while im studying the art books i also take some comic classes.For 7 hours on Suturday i learn about the history of comics, synthesis, colors, script writing and scenarios.
Today my teacher thought it would be a good idea too call in a model from the art class down the other floor too practise our skills.
Most of the stuff i did werent that good.The lines came very thick and hairy and it wasnt that good.
This one through came much better than the others.
Been doing a lot of things lately im getting a little tired.
Anyways tried to use plastic and Pastels for some drawings.
One is a self potrait the other is a drawing of a doll.
Not much to say really now.
Did Modeling again (want to improve drawing while observing but the internet doesnt do the job) and i also got an assignment for the next time.
Ok standard stuff,i just picked the drawing that i thought was the best and posted it here.Thankfully i was allowed this time to use shading and shadows so it came much better than before.
The other one is an assignment from the Comic's Class i take.He gave us random pages of a comic and he asked us by eye, too understand and redraw the bodys but as dolls for the correct placement and synthesis of the panels.
I got some other assignments but i dont think they are that good enough to post in here.
Polu wraia arxh man!!!Sunexise na beltiwneis ta basika tou sxediou.
Interesting start mate!!! You have to keep improving the fundamentals. Its nice to see you simplifying the human body(thats the way to learn it and use it easier). Keep understanding how to depict simple objects (cube,sphere,cylinder). Learn to do proper toning, using proper tonal range(light,shadow,full shadow,reflected light, highlight).By doing it to simple objects(even from mind) you will be able to pass the knowledge to other things in nature.
Anyway keep up the work here and be sure that you will keep getting better

On other news something funny happened that lead me to practise my Prespective skills.
So its math class and i am bored out of my fucking mind.I love math and i like the teacher but the stuff that we are forced to cover is really easy for me.
Anyways, as i was sitting there i drew a straight line (Pic 4-5-6 Dont remember from image attachments).That reminded me string theory and its 11 applications of dimensions (just go with it)and so i started drawing out and thinking about dimensions.
I got to the 5th Dimensions and i couldnt get the cubes drawn right.Thankfully with the knowlage from some advanced artists (My dad) i remembered about Horizons.
Than i got hooked and started practising Prespective.
First time i actually drew a gun in 3D right (Ok, mostly right).
Here is what im talking about.

I got some time to rest and excersise the past 5 days so i decided to start practising prespective and horizons.
I am satisfied with the results right now but i will progress more until i can render buildings more realistically.
So i got 2 pics right here (Im not gona sit and post all of the horizon exersising parts because i would be uploading all day, so here is the best building i have done till date.
Also i started using the artists doll more so i decided to draw a skier both cartoonish and realistically.Im off with the perpostions on the realistic skier so il try to improve.

Did modelling and stuff.
Also used Watercolors for one of the images.
Its late as of the time of writing so this will be quick.
Doing acrylic and modeling.Tired.Need sleep.
Point out any problems please.
Havent done too much acrylics before.
bravo bravo sunexise etsi!!!
You are doing great mate, i like very much these perspective drawings. Keep up and keep studying the anatomy
Studying more from the people around me.Also expirementing with colors as always.
This is kinda WIP but i reckon they deserve a post here.
The Conan the Barbarian look alike poster will be awesome when its done (Its A3 just so i can hang it on my wall).
Ok i just finished the Conan Poster.Il paint the rest of the title and then hang it in my wall.
Also if it comes off shitty its because of the light.The reflections on the paper messed it up so it looks kinda crap.I had to fix it up on PS.
I have been expirementing with acrylics guys but most of the stuff i have done isnt that good.
I force my self to do atleast one small painting with acrylics a day to become better.
This is more of my recent stuff.
█████████ to Final Bloodlines.
I will need to keep drawing and painting each day,every day ,for ███████ █████████ before i am let out into the real world.
I need to not miss a single day of this.If i do i will propably fail.
The second day of ordeal...
Never forget, never resent.
This beast took me 3 hours to master.
The winged chariots are next.
Oh, muses grant me the inspiration to go further...
