Shadow Stalker: Thanks! I'm happy to happy to give back the inspiration to the community i took it from (hopefully that makes sense XD )
Greenhouse: Thanks, and i'm glad you have found the resources useful :) I like the winter view the most too. was easiest one to make as well- maybe because i'm used to flatlands with grass and trees, as opposed to shorelines with cliffs? as to the trueblood's spoof- this series is just asking for it - it's so ridiculous lately, i can't treat it as anything different than an oversexed comedy :P
Well, my observational skills are getting stronger, but i still get hopelessly stuck whenever drawing from imagination. What i see repeated around this board often is that you can't learn to draw from imagination without.. drawing from imagination. So here are some doodles (that made me think i should do some clothing studies):
And some clothing studies from refs that followed:
i should do more of those...but then again- i should do more of everything XD
Great sketches! This sketchbook is crazy! 0____0
How did you get so productive?!
Badass linework, man! I even recognise the clothing refs in your last post. XD *uber-fashion-nerd*
Sushy: Thanks :) Me, productive? really? D: But i do everything so slow.. I dropped gaming (and sulking about being not good enough at drawing XD ) alltogether and cut movies/series watching and commissioned work to a bare minimum. It freed some more hours in my already not too busy schedule. I'm trying to form a new daily routine of drawing for at least 8h a day, in hopes that once drawing becomes as natural as breathing, progress will be forced to happen.
Natzetta: thank you :D means a lot, especially since i think it's your linework that's the badass one :tihi:
Deadline for lawnmowers project is breathing down my neck ;___; but i try to keep in touch with my inner portraitist.
I noticed i tend to excessively bulge out foreheads... Last time i tried Loomis' method for head drawing i have had a major ragequit. but that was in july, so maybe i'm ready for it now? :S
When i drew them, i thought they were shit. this morning i thought they were quite cool. Now, few hours later i have no idea what to think..
Yeah I admit, I think I have been in here three or four times just looking at this last post! Itís so freaking good! The pen strokes look so smooth and vibrant. I donít know how you do it looking so simple.
When I draw heads I tend to scratch in one place and having a huge problem getting the proportions in place. So there you have my answer to your last thought! Yeah, Iím actually studying them! Do more! Youíre rockin! :)
I adore your portrait and gesture studies! Wish I were half as good... and those screenshot studies are a nice idea, maybe I should try that, it looks like fun (and instructive fun at that, I don't practise scenery nearly enough)
i love your face studies. where are they from? I've been looking to find a decent stream of references where I can do face studies as well (but I'm just a beginner, nowhere near your level, I'm afraid..)
edit: actually, where do you go for your references in general? and what are your brush settings? i really like the effect you're getting, and I'm wondering if that is partially due to how you set your brushes.
dude..I almost had an orgasm! Haha. Seriously though, I saw your skecthes in Spartan Camp and headed over here to check out your other work. BLOWN AWAY! I am so inspired right now, I actually didn't know what direction I should go with my art but THIS IS THE DIRECTION :P Following your sketchbook! Really amazed !
God, your sketchbook is insanely amazing! I love every single picture here. The studies are so full of life, the faces and the gestures.
Thank you for sharing!
