Post dude, you're making rapid progression! You can do it! Keep going!
Thank you all
Here's some shit, I quite like the brigdman studies but the Sargent studies were done too fast so the eyes on the guy (front view) are fucked up a bit etc (though I focused more on the form) but yeah, school and stuff makes me lazy, I really have to get up from my lazy ass and work, I know I could be great at drawing if I just worked more. I just takes practice and time:
Edit: yeah, I tried to think a little bit about line quality, in the bridgman thingie.
Good stuff profil man, your really comin along man, try and keep your art up and i guarentee you wont regret it. Youve got lots of talent and your at your most effiecent learning age of your life. weigh up the pros and cons of everything you do... try and think of something like drawing as an essential when u prioritize sttuff so its always at the top. The thing is, its really hard to get going, i get the exact same dilemmas, but once u do a drawing or a painting and it comes out well, your always really chuffed about it. Think about that when u decide what ure doing, you get alot more out of the perseverence of going through a drawing then say playing a game. Admitadly games and movies are still good but art should try and rank above them. Atm im going through a stage of removing games and stuff from computer to make myself spend more time doing art. Set yourself a goal like atleast 1 sketch a day , its suprisingly easy to keep to, but it will help and as long as you stick to that then u can feel at least satisified, and when u do 3 or 4 pages in a night you can feel real chuffed.
Youve got lots of potential man, and your really coming along nicely. Your at the same stage as me,(a year behind though) but i think it will work out if you can just keep it up, even if at a minimum sometimes, dont let it stop in large gaps, keep it semi regular and you wont loose it. Sometimes the small breaks will help u get back into it aswell.. i go through like 1 week long bursts of churnin out a few paintings a week, and it feels great.
Just throwin in some encouragement man, you should recognise it man, when u produce something like this, you gotta be goin somewhere.
Keep it up man,
I agree, you're doing great. To bad that for now, only Andy, you, SGS and I are posting. Everyone else is either "taking a break" or just kinda stopped.
Thanks guys It actually helps hearing things like this.
Anyway, I haven't been drawing too much, lots of school. But I have a break now so I will do art between all of the homework
Here's some stuff.
Sargent study (btw, sorry for all the bad scannings)
bridgman (bad proportions etc)
dunno why I post this, I liked the contours though. Was the start of a self-potrait

i like that last one too. The jaw lines look a lil uneven right now to me though.
Fantastic figure drawings btw.
That SP looks like it has great proportions. Try carrying it out from your head, just making it into a charcter. Doing good man
You are my favorite 16year old, atleast on these boards. And in many ways the weirdest.
Rock on dude!
Where's the stuff mang?
Wow, time goes by fast. My last post was more then a month ago.... shiit. I got a shitload of school work to do, but I end this term in 25 days so I'll finally have some rest, if I don't get a summerjob. Anyway, I did some drawings on my busride for the first time. The "sketchbook" is pretty small and the people are moving, as well as the big blue buss, so they are pretty shitty. Anyway, give tips on how to improve quick sketching.
veryvery nice studies and god damn your progress is fuckin slick.
Would be cool drawing with you at a café sometime.
My first time stopping by. You're making good progress in this thread. All the studies are paying off. Just keep at them endlessly. It never hurts to draw several thousand of them!
I like those bus ride sketches. The simple cartoon colors are cool with them. Keep at it!
Dam man, I need to stop by more often around here!!
this one is tastsssy like hell
I love the reflected lights on its buttcheks!!!
for speed drawing just try to simply, think of the simplest
way to capture the rithms of the fabric and anatomy,
this last ones look like a good start, but you need to do a lot
of them, dont get to stressed about getting them right,
insted, do many, MANY more of them.
Ill see ya later man, and KEEP IT UP cause it shows!
Yay for update! Good work Profil, hopefully we'll see more when schools over.
Quick studies are learned mainly from straight out practice, helps you gain speed and memory. Try to capture the gesture first, then the most important or interesting details, so whent he subject moves you can continue from memory. Dont let yourself be intimidated drawing in public, be daring and keep at it!
Last page is keepin it real... keep posting!
Hey there arent anymore schoolwork right now and for some weeks, so theres no excuses anymore not to draw and update...and a summerjob aren´t an excuse thats just some hours a day with no homework and stuff, unless you're a sissy
My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
Ps:Hope you understand my English.
Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.
fooxo: thank you
tigermilk: yes, it would be. Drawing all the emo chicks that want to go up and cut themselves. YES!
Artguy: yeah, you are right. I need to more of these*1000k.
Maxetormer: thanks Yes, repetition is everything.
sirgreensock: Yeah, I need to do way more drawing, especially gestures of real people.
Pixeldragoon: will try
Shylone_breath: Thanks man, it's not everyday someone leaves a reply with inspiring
Mr.blonde: Thanks And yes, it will be more bridgman.
blanquish: I agree with everything
Mindflaw: my cover is blown, thanks:/..... joking.
I've come to realize why Jason Manley, Marko Djurdjevic, Coro etc got their motivation, found their drive. According to me, they were driven against a wall, with just one choice, so they did everything they could and they made it out from that wall. It's like a war, if you don't have anything to lose, go for what you want. I need to cut my options, I need to say to myself, drawing/painting whatever, is what I want to do. But it's tough, and I will try.
That was probaly incoherent and not understandable but whatever.
Here's a drawing from... friday, fast doodle. Only face I like is the one on the lower left.
Wow. Wow. I just went through your entire sketchbook. Your improvement's been phenomenal. Love your figures. Keep going, mang.
Well youve been doing something right, whether its continued practice or changed mentality youre still gaining lots of confidence in your linework.
At the workshop it was repeatedly stressed that you gotta step outta your comfort zone and constantly surround yourself with something new (different environment, style, medium, subject matter) to keep learning and not stagnating.
Sock: Thank you. I really need to step out of my comfort zone(s?).
Here's some comfort zone bland not so good stuff.
oh, the scanner scans too light but I don't know how to fix it.
I need to step away from the cartoony stuff I tend to draw, it's too easy and it's not what I want to draw.
yeh man, wateva kind of epiphany you had (the ones pixeldragoon gets ) its working dude. Everything looks alot more confident.
Looks nice and loose and fresh but try not to loose it too much - some of these looks too loose, very bendy lines - think big swoosy rather than all the bumps and niggles.
Good stuff bro, looking forward to some more posts from you!!!
