Tight studies you got there.Really nice.DOnt draw again and again on the same line .I destroys the beauty of the form.
Read these wise words by mentler.
Take care and keep working.Point, Line, Plane
Think of the mass <> visualize it in your mind <> POINTS <> decide where you want your line to start and where you want it to end <> LINE <> then draw your line from point A over the conceived form to point B <> PLANE <> all lines involved in creating illusionary drawing are the edge of a plane.
The point of course is the unity of mass and line <> they are not separate issues <> don't outline something then shade it <> determine the mass and shape it with line and tone/value
Why are they blurry? That really bothers me. Can you fix that?
sorry i havent updated. I just started a full time job which has been really tiring. I should be able to get a few pages up tonight though.
The reason some are really blurry is because i have a weird shaking thing with my hands ( i should probably ask a doctor about it ) so when i take a picture and it goes on long exposure is comes out all blurry. I also found i have a very dificult time drawing in pen because of it.
The book is pretty good. its really for people who have never drawn before but im doing the exerrcises anyway and its helping a bit. Theres a lot of fluff in it (some psudo science) but id recomend it.
Not much to say, the others have already pointed out all of your mistakes, but you seem to have the faces down, i really like your joker face the best so far. Hope to see more of your work.

Back to the ol' sketchbook
damn working in a 110 degree kitcken is tiring. Heres some stuff ive done. the mustached man is a copy of a baldini painting. I dont think ill upload my stuff from betty edwards book, dont want to waste space.
I also experimented with some acrylic paint today (just black and white with value mixing). All i have to say is i hate the stuff, im gonna try watering it down next time i use it, but its so thick and dries so fast i can barely spread it on the canvas. any tips would be awsome
(it probably also doesnt help that my pallette is like 5" x 8" )
Yo. I really like the silouette of the woman. I hated acrylic at first too. Just do it in thin layers and you'll slowly build up confidence. Try studying a painting that you like. For me the hardest part was mixing my colors, but i'm slowly getting better at it. Just keep doing it. If you want to keep the paints moist, try putting moist paper towels under your palette paper, mine stayed moist for hours. Keep updating, i want to see more!
The Baldini and silouette of the woman are great. I don't use acrylic, so I can't help out there...sorry
first is a page from my normal sketch book. I realized that it was too big if i was gonna draw on like the bus or something so i bought a smaller one and the sketches are the inogural page. All done on the bus ride home.
Im going down the shore for a few days. So ill be back and ill have many new pages of bikini clad ladies
That girl's silouette looks awesome, and it's a great practice. Makes me wanna go and draw some of those.
keep 'em coming
You did something right on that back-view girl's head, because i dig it as well. In the 3/4 view man in the last post his mouth is too long on the side facing away from us. The mouth is usually forshortened from that angle and one half is distorted and short, while the other is normal sized. Keep drawing!
i have returned.
Thanks for the input guys ill use them starting now.
Here is the stuff i was able to do while not being dragged around by the family. Almost all of it was referanced. Though people where constantly moving so i would get the gesture down and use memory for the rest
The little girl with the "watch your children" sign actualy happened. She somehow climbed onto the top of a lifeguard tower after the lifeguards had left for the day and all fo the life guard towers have "watch your children" written around the top of them. Was one of the most ironic things ive ever witnessed.
I also picked up "A treatise on painting" by Leonardo da vinci. Its a collection of all his notes relating to art. Really interesting stuff and its really starting to change how i look at things. It also unfortunately caused me to draw less cause its so interesting though
Nice update here. Lines could use more confidence though, the choppy/thick lines make the pieces look off a bit
Hey, great update. My only advice: try to use more assertive lines, get rid of those hairy lines.
Otherwise, looking good!
Are you alive dude??
