Wow man you are working hard. And it is totally worth it as I can see. Your refless faces are getting better and better!! Really great and motivating sketchbook. Keep em coming
Again great stuff, I'll start my pose marathon today,
I hope it helps it seem to help you!
bye hard working bastard :p. (really it motivates me allot do try harder myself)
kischi, thank you so much! A lot of my motivation comes from the lovely feedback here
Reika, thanks, and you're right! i shall do more detailed stuff in the future, but basics come first.
Maidith, haha, of course, yours are better, but mine have an advantage in numbers
Flutic, yeah it helps, get going! And thanks man!
So today! I got up at early, went jogging, then did some warmups like drawing lines and training eye and muscles and coordination and stuff, didn't scan that, would take too long.
Then I did some 30 second sketches:
And some 60 second sketches:
And some digi thumbs. Didn't work quite like I wanted, so I fell into a deeeep pit of frustration.
Which made me doodle with ballpoint pen and brushpen. The first sheet is one with the aforementioned warmup exercises which i learned in the mentoring section, the doodles are refless, and the brushpen is fun, yeah it is
I'm happy with the second page, I think the ballpoint girl in the top left came out good
And i received Bridgman's book on hands today. Awesome. Here's the first studies. I. Want. To. Learn. How. To. Draw. Hands!
Yay! Drawing is fun! Tomorrow I'll be at University again, studying for exams, which means I won't be able to practice as much as today D:
way to go on those 30 second sketches. good gesture and life and energy to them.

Want to help a "artist" in need, visit my sketchbook
Wow, I just joined this site the evening and was planning on browsing through a whole bunch of stuff, but I feel upon your sketchbook instead and just fell in love! All your dedication and hard work is utterly inspiring, and you've improved so much! It's really encouraging to see such astonishing results. I can't wait to see more of your art (and start some of those crazy cool pose drawings myself)! Keep up the good work.
tensai, thank you
lacadam, cheers mate, i will!
Luckysquid, aww, you dont know how heartwarming that is Thank you so much for your kind words, im glad i helped to inspire you.
Mischeviouslittleelf, thank you, and yes, i think pushing each other is a good thing I'll head over to your sketchbook °O°/
So today, I overslept, then did a lot of lines, circles, and ellipses, and then some Bridgman studies.
Then I went to my University, studying with friends, but still doodled in the bus.
Then i did some vanderpoel studies... again, not good, but I learned a lot
And some 30 second poses before going to bed These suck, I somehow don't seem to have the right approach right. Everyone else seems to be doing them with lines, while i kinda try to get them down with forms... but shouldn't that actually be the right way? Maybe I just lack experience.
Good night people
First, line exercises, then Bridgman studies.
Hadn't done anything with color in a long time, so I just doodle away, without any lines, just blocking in, here's what I had after a bit more than two hours:
Some more digi stuff from today, all done during the Themed Art Challenges over at deviantArt.
This is what the Gallery Directors do in their meetings...
The topic given here was "Fair Exposure".
And some 30 second poses.
Good to see so much energy in your works and studies. Great that U are doing so much too - can only help to make u a great artist!
I see great effort here! Like the anatomy studies and the croquis!
Love it!! I am a bit out-of-date, but #51 is my favorite, great style, it reminds me bumskee's work. Can you tell me where you get your ref. for 30sec pose study? I would love to do some really quick figure study as well. The recent post is sweet, nice fluid. Nothing can really crit, you're doing a great job!!
kidult, thanks, and yeah, that's what i'm hoping
Gundersen, thanks man! and yeah, we'll see each other in class!
alvukovic, thank you
UnSharpened, thanks dude. i'm flattered you even mention bumskee. i love his stuff so much. the poses are from posemaniacs.com, ill send you a pm in case you dont read this post
atlantik, thanks mate!
so today, i had to study for my exams. next one is on tuesday and things are getting kinda stressful. after that however, ill have all time in the world.
but i still did a digi doodle in between boolean algebra and all those nasty things... tried a new, more "traditional" approach to skintones here, more blocking and less blending, instead developing a richer color scheme... i think it came out rather nice. without ref, as always.
and a tiny bit of bridgman.
omfg the hands o__O!!
great work, I'm impressed by how much time you actually spend on improving your drawing skills °_°;
I mean- I knew you'd spend a lot of time for that. But so much drawings, so many different poses and stuff ... wow o_o"
keep going <3~

atlantik, thanks mate!
flamable, thank you, and yeah, unfortunately you are right. i've been looking for a life drawing class around here ever since i started this thread, without success so far :-/ but ill do self portraits and studies from life, i think that will help as well.
mellowpurple, thanks my dear ha. you see. i just cant upload all this shit on animexx ;D
didnt do anything yesterday, because of exams. didnt do much today either, because of more exams. but here's a sketchbook page i did on the bus... haha, my pencils suck.
and i didnt make it into form's environmenting class. damn it, i should have worked harder. that kinda pulled me down, and i was all emo, for at least two minutes. after that, i started doodling, without any specific purpose... here's what i had after 3 and a half hours.

im liking the digi sketches, good job! Also well done on keeping up with all those figure studies, inspiring stuff lol. And i also wish to learn how to draw hands, bit of a weakness of mine, might start when i get home =P
anyway, keep up the awesomeness!
Come check out my sketch book yeh?
Yeh for sure!
West Australian and proud of it!
Hey, Gosh you're learning fast, and working hard, it really pays of.... ( I'm thinking where does this guy going to end?)
You're digital sketches are improving allot! You inspire me to work harder myself, "thanks :p"
Tuff update man - loving these pics! The saturated colours are soo nice! Can see how the hands studies paid off. Skin tones on the 2nd ones face is good too.
Some anatomical offness on the ladies but seems U where more into the faces? Or is that just me....
Anyways keep it up!
i really like the fact that your doing hard work on the color AND anatomy part, very admirable!
your faces look good, its just funny that they are pretty similar (your girlfriend?) and that their lips are always VERY red.
again, great updates and post more!
