Hey, thanks for stopping by my SB, I updated with something half decent this time , nice work today, cool life drawing, maybe you should throw in the occasional study, perhaps skeletal, might help with understanding the form, keep up the good work
P Sage: Does XD means a happy laugh to me, is it the same thing to you? Becuase I'm confused.
Miycko: Thanks! Not as much today though
The man with no name: No problem, thank you for stoping by your self =)
Got preety sick lately and I've been sleeping non stop, I'm feeling better nowthough =D A portrait of my friend and my father. I tottaly messed my friend up she's way prettier then this Lets see how I do tommrow.
I'm going to try going about this sketchs from my head differently, need to experiment more.
Tried painting something from my head again

man, those two pencil portraits kick my ass, the values in this digital thing look pretty good( well, i think you should try to define the lightsource more) and i like the greenish matrix look
keep kickin butt, dylan!
Nice going, you seem to be taking things seriously. I see that you listen to Silent Hill music, that's cool. For some reason the 3 and 4 soundtracks have become like my theme music when I draw, and I haven't even played the games.
P Sage: We are crazy I know...
Thanks for the comments everyone. Alright I've been down for past few days, not only sick but just feeling empty, only doing some bare minimum things that are really easy for me to do. Doesnt even feel like a work out just like a walk in the park everyday. Some life drawing... some doodles... then a whole lot of nothing productive.
I just hate to see my self giveing in to these empty emotions that go round inside my head time and time again. It's not just me though, it's so many people that feel this way and only do what's the easiest becuase motivation is just gone, it's drained.
I'm snaping out of it right naOoooOOWWWW, I control my self I can push my self to do what's hard and work my butt off. To make it even better I'm working my butt off for the sack of doing the things I want to do, to life the life I want to live and you can do it to! So let's do it! Let's all rock our tablets and our paints and our sketchbooks and let's all do it together!
Going to be a big update tommrow
I like the update, the colour piece is good, the perspective on his leg looks a little off though, like the lighting too, hope your feeling better, I have those days too,some are easier to snap out of but some keep you down,guess life wasn't meant to be easy though, music really loud seems to cure my woes to an extent, looking forward to your next update
Looking good here!
The figure studies are looking really nice! The only thing though is that your lines tend to be a little messy looking. Try not to shade using zigzags and more with straight lines while lifting up the pencil after each stroke.
Oh, and Haibane Renmei was such a good show...
Have you ever seen Texhnolyze? It also has character designs by Yoshitoshi Abe, but it was a little strange from what I can remember. O_O
Jatherip: Dude that's the spirit!!!!! All that matters is that we draw. Once this flu is gone I'm going totally crazy. I have too!!!
drd: You can You can get dedicated too, just find it in you! I need to find it in me to go even more!
Kim_bot: My lines are messy, it's a lack of confidense and control. Alot of the times I'm trying to go over lines because either I think they are right and I want to darken them some more, or I'm unsure about the drawing and ill get it all messy. Ill try to shade that way, it's hard but looks so much more organized!
I actually have not watched Haibane Renmai or Texnolyze yet completly. I tottally plan to! I absolutely loved SEL though. I can't wait, the main crew that made SEL is makeing a new anime at the moment which is in pre production called "Despera"
Man it's a strange feeling when you basically completely missed a day. I've been sleeping on and off with short episodes of wakefulness for last 18 hours. I told my self yesterday I should focus on getting better so I can go crazy again. But figure drawing is tonight so I have to go to that!! Ill be doodeling on the way there and back too. Want to fill up all the pages in my sketchbook that I feel are a little pointless and empty right now. There is a few.
Damn I forgot to take a photo of my little cousin that I drew yesterday. Ill be seeing them tommrow though so ill just get it then.
It's winter!!! Snow is awesome. I remeber wakeing up late last night and seeing all the snow falling with the light that the falkes caught from the street lamps. It was pretty.
Winter?? It's not supposed to be winter yet! What about autumn? You crazy Canucks and your October winters
Tremendous work is still needed in the faces. I would work on either bodies or faces but not both at this point. You need to isolate these activities in order to understand them.
But some of the things I'm learning right now at the school (while I'm here) would suggest that you start doing studies on how to create two-D forms on a page, and then 3-D forms before moving into figure drawing.
My approach in my thread will change significantly because of just these last two days at this school.
Hope you're feeling better and that the weather up there doesn't spoil your mood
Snowed in! More reasons to draw! Good to see you drawing a lot of figures. Keep studying from life, maybe it might be good to also study other artists too and figure out how they solve a problem like drawing the figure.
Dylaan~ I got your link from gaiaonline XDD
You've got nice stuff here, I think I need to do more life drawing too XDDD
Keep on posting!
Nice update, the snnow looks amazing , it never snoows down here well not in the streets, cool updat looks like your busy as always, to me it looks as if you are getting more confident with graphite, have you tried doing some digital stuff recently, would make for a nice contrast, keep up the good work
I was at this sports store the other day getting some ski pants and I noticed the girl who was at the cashier's name was "Dylanea". I realized "Hey that's my name on the internet! .... "
I guess that super long sleep cured me. Was hanging out with my little cousins family yesterday, got some drawing in, came home and some how I ended up watching the last 15 episodes of Evangelion.
I gota work harder though, I need to work alot harder. I useally update when I feel I have 8-9 hours of work to show at least and lately I've been updateing every 2 days. I know it my sound crazy to you but I think the only people that are working hard are working 12-16 hours a day. Doesnt need to be drawing, but they are working.
Occationally ill hit a day or two where I work like this, and I pat my self on the back when I do, but it needs to be consistent.
Jatherip: I'm going to draw like mad just for you (well mostly for me), thanks for kicking me in the ass when I need it T___T
P Sage: Thanks P sage, I'd say I'm focusing alot more on faces these days it's alot of fun actually. Ill ask my family and friends to pose for me while I draw them. Sometimes they say yes and will move a ton but I try my best to draw them hah! Hehe I'd like to build up the nerve to ask people in public if I can draw them. What I nice way to tal to some girls.
Personally though I wouldnt be able to 100% focus on one thing though. Drawing just would not be fun for me if I were just drawing one thing. Actually I'd say what I enjoy drawing jumps around everywhere.
Helaine: Hey I think I actually reconize that name from Gaia, it's a fun site to post on sometimes but I enjoy CA much more =) I check out your sketchbook
Ian Miles: Thanks
The Man With No Name: Thanks, yeah I like the snow alot! I can see a little more confidense in my strokes too.
Miycko: That tottally is ther spirt! I want my spirts to go way beyond what they are now though, it's hard
Krato: WOW!!! Thank you so much this guys crazy!! Now he can draw Hey... He's from Massive Black
