Yeah i study 3d modeling, its interesting you asked, because i had a talk with my department head and we both agreed the better you can draw means the better you can understand and see form. Which basically means you can pretty much do anything artistically speaking. So i'm actually customizing my curriculum to more of an illustartion/3d hybrid kind of duo. I'm really excited he said i could customize my curriculum. I can't wait to see what you have up i'll talk to you later.
Good hand sketch it, seems you're aware of the negetive space consciuosly or subconsciuosly which helps alot when describing a form.
whoa, i'm on page 3! damn, better get something good starting here...
thanks a lot for the comments, guys.
ashrumm - great news! that really sounds exciting and i think illustration and 3d compliment each other in a great way!
nii - thanks man. alcian told me about the negative space a little while ago. before that i was too concentrated on the actual form. thanks for pointing that out again, i really have to get that into my head...
okay, another small update. some of the bridgman books i ordered came today and i had a glance at it. very interesting and a way more loose approach than hogarth, i think.
so i followed your advice, ashrumm, and drew from reference (magazines), life (my own hands) and a little bridgman.
nice stuffs you got there. I think you are a really craftman. I love those classical figures too. good luck
Hey Stine, you've got a Bridgeman book awesome, everyone recommends bridgeman so its a good thing you got it. Very cool i see you're mixing it up what is the blue pencil you are using is it a col-erase blue? Not that it matters i'm just curious. The hands you first drew look like bridgeman very nice hands by the way. My favorite, from this post is that gesture of the head at the bottom i'm jealous nice head!
thanks, corel painter! that' s really nice...
ashrumm - hey there, thanks a lot! the bridgman books are really great... guess i'll be quite busy in the next days (or weeks, months and years...).
the blue pencil isn't a col-erase. i didn't get any here and so i used blue pencils i got from my grandpa. like them a lot!
so, here's another small update. again from "once upon a time in the west". needed to practise kids/teens and i liked her expression...
Nice work! I really like these drawing from the movie, the old man is great... so is the girl. You've really got great drawing skills! I like to draw from movies as well, I don't freeze frame though, that would spoil the movie, instead I try to capture a scene or character while the movie plays, Fun
Anyway looks great can't wait to see more
Nice sketch from the movie, I'll try that myself sometime.
thanks, ham-e. drawing from movies is a lot of fun, i think. but right now i still need the freeze frames. not good enough to capture everything just at a glance... well, i have sort of a time limit, because after 10 minutes pause my dvd player shuts itself down...
hey, nii! thanks for stopping by. you should definetely try it. i took "once upon a time in the west" because it has these great close-ups...

hi there! hope you guys all have a nice easter-weekend!?
bhanu - thanks a lot! i'm still struggeling with the hands but i'll just go on. thanks a lot for the encouraging words!
ashrumm - thanks! as i said, portraits are my "comfort zone". everytime something else doesn't work or is too stressy (like hands...) i do a portrait. didn't have much time today, so it's just a rough sketch of claudia cardinale. hope you like it...
ooo the last portrait is rockin'. Very subtle but still enough detail to capture her beauty. One thing I would like to see though is a bit more confidence in your lines. Try not to go over your lines too much. Good job Stine keep it up!
Hi there I´m back again
nice pics all around!
I´ll come back later to comment one speciall ones! (too tired now)
only my conceptart.org adiction made me stay on long enough to wait for conceptart to "resurrect"
see you Infinit
friends Sketchbooks:Dile_, Stine

Ilaekae: "I'm sick and tired of "purists" who dictate their own anal preoccupations to everybody else as the word of gods."
thanks a lot, guys!
yeah, i definetely have to work on my lines. althought my scanner makes the linework look a little "fuzzier" than it is in some places... no excuse, need to work on it, no doubt. thanks for pointing that out, skeiff!
thanks, ashrumm. those arm studies of yours are great. tinted paper is so much fun, isn't it?!
and welcome back infinit! hope your skitrip was fun...
couldn't get into the forum the whole day and now i'm without a scanner til this afternoon. only did some small studies with bridgman, but i'll post them later. thanks again, see ya,
so, here we go.
i was looking for some dynamic poses and thought about the marx brothers... so here are some sketches from "animal crackers"... well, it's a looooooong way ahead of me, but i'm trying...
Hi, stine, some of your poses look good but you should do some more. Try to do as much as you can, I draw poses in the bus, at the station, I draw my sister in home etc.
wow, love ur style and characters And ur hands look great (especialy the thumb ) Anyways, great job, and keep the sketches rolling =)
Awesome i See someone else is doing some figure gesture drawing awesome the dancing ones are fantastic the funny thing about this post is you pretty much nailed the hardest ones. It seems as though the ones in motion are your best ones and the static poses are your weakest sketches keep them coming.
thanks, wolfbane! great book you have there, looking forward to another update of yours!
and thanks, ashrumm. yep, saw those drawings in your book and thought i should try that. mine are far from your detail and anatomy, but i'm trying a little... guess, i got the more dynamic ones better because they have a more significant silhouette. and they're more fun. maybe that shows, too. well, lot of work ahead of me...
here's another small update, didn't have that much time today, had to work on my thesis...
thanks, dile! nice of you to have another look at my sketchbook!
i'm still struggeling with the hands, but i'll keep trying...
darktwin - thanks a lot! the blue pencils are adding a lot to that soft impression, i think. i got red ones from the same brand, so i guess, i'll give that a shot and see how it looks...
Your gesture drwings are comming along nicely, I also find dynamic poses alot more enjoyable to draw especialy with a good silhouette. Try and draw quik skeletal roughs of the gestures, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. That said your doing well without them, I like the few lines it took for you to define the face top left of the last sketch, well done.
Really like your updates, the marx brothers poses are great! My humble suggestion for the hands is that you aproach them as though they were a dynamic figure, hands are very expressive think of them as having a life of their own. loosen up a bit: Try to do a few blind pure contour drawings really slowly, it won't look much like a hand, but I find it's a useful exercise.
waiting for the next update
