You are handling gravity just the same in the sky as you did on the ground, cause
you are multi talented, and you can see the glow without leaving the frozen
river flow. The studies that you are doing are looking great and nice, you’ve
shared with the crowd, you shared the clean and sharp information, that you
are here to stay, and you are determined as Conan was in mid winter time.
Serving the law is a great thing, but making art is much better and very much
more powerful, you don’t have to make second guesses as you clean your dresses.
I think that you should keep up with these figure studies, cause you are improving
indeed, and only in one month you made huge steps of trust and faith. Go berserk
with your drawing sessions and let them feel the might around you, cause you can
do it and you can go even better, so roll the dice and smash the mice.
Thanks Lieutenant for those kind words! i will definitely bite into that vulture, punch camels and smash the mice lol. (i love animals lol)
So those days drawings:
Some outdoor sketches in Trinity College and Dublin in general, some objects i found on the table and some stuff from imagination, faces and a kind of drill to build tunnels...
Thanks for watching,
Some update on the "savage girl"
I am looking for advices on painting and colors
I don't know how to shade her correspondingly to the light and if the atmospheric perspective is "right".
Don't hesitate to shout me in the head with critiques, i'm here to learn!
This week-end sketches :
I feel like i need to push some drawings sometime just to see how much i learned from anatomy books... because that is pretty loose... anyway as always if you have anything to say, say it!
Tonight i tried doing some portraits from photo refs, just the contours for now, tomorrow i'll try some values... baby steps lol
so here's the results, i spent ~20 minutes each, is it too much for just a line art? i guess i ll get faster with time...
Good night/day all.
go go quick lion. here a little mental trick that maybe you already know, first think on what you want to get better and then do focused studies to get better at that, asrt is like any other disciplines, there are methods of study that are great and other that are horrible, dont forget.
Yeah i am a bit all over concerning studies... i really need to make a list to tackle point by point.
Anyway here's some more poses and sketches from imagination. As always thanks for the support and for watching!
hey man thanks for dropping by my SB too!
when I strated there was one thing that was really bad and great at the same time, seeing other ppl improvement end sketchbooks, because it made me really nervous the idea of "maybe I willl not improve as much as them" but at the same time that stress made me push myself much much harder, I learned that seeing other ppl improve and practice harder then me was really painful and motivating at the same time. Also make sure you get inspired all the time, I believe the will to do art is something we need to build constantly and thats tricky because its not like the need to get food you know, this is something else, do wathever you must do to charge your bateries! if that makes sense lol
emmm... but dont listen to me too much, im still trying to figure out how all this stuff work...
anyways keep posting, its great to see more stuff

Nice, good variety, keep it up Alex!
facebook | tumblr | art hangouts! (get your friendly ol' bum over here and get arting with us!)

Arm studies, didn't draw much today.
Got good news tho, i am being accepted at university in IADT in Dublin. I hope i'll be able to follow along with the English :s i'm feeling really nervous lol
I hope drawing more tomorrow, keeping you updated!
EDIT: Also i'm buying a scanner soon so, crappy photos with funky colors will be over! (i'm a bit sad lol)
Nice to see a lot of poses and quick gesture type drawings.
Solid sb so far.
One area that stuck out to me, was your figures legs, this seems to be your most inconsistent area. As the scale/proportion changes a lot in your images (even on the same figure). Just an area to watch.
Look forward to seeing more.

Hey guys! So i bought a new scanner/printer today (well not new, second hand lol)!
So to try it i scanned some old sketchbook i found under my bed the other day, so i thought i would share those with you haha, those are from 1 year ago i guess.
tell me what you think of these! (to spare your eyes i didnt scanned the gesture drawing i was doing at the time haha)
Thanks for stopping by in my SB!
Doing great here but what I can advice you to do regarding the question you asked in the Savage Girl post about shading correspondingly to the light is to do studies. Studies help immensely in the understanding of human form and how light falls on objects and creates form.
Anyway that's what seems to be working for me currently and looks as it has helped so many others.
Crits and help of any kind are more than welcome!
Very good so far!
I'd recommend studies though! They'll get you very far. They are probably the most important things to do for improvement.
Your gestures on the first page are nicely done

Criticism much appreciated
