The native American is coming along a treat. Maybe you could do some more still lives for sketching practice.
wow, for studies, those are some sexy ladies XD
awesome studies dear
The only real failure is the failure to try
chibimeli/zalxemptyx - Thanks lovelies!
I am back. These are the wee bit of stuff i did when i was gone. D:
As you can see, I've been deteriorating.
I haven't been drawing much (and sometimes not at all!) and i only have been drawing when i felt some motivation. (So, i'm back to I-CAN'T-FUCKING-DRAW-AT-ALL mode) Terrible, i know. But let's hope that i can start anew and do more work this year. Thanks for dropping by!
AllyAlbon- Wow, thanks a lot!
reme- Hey there, long time now see! I need to pick up drawing again so i'm back
So these are the stuff (i tried to draw) yesterday, and just the one at the bottom for today. I think i have to not force it and draw more slowly. D:
Cool stuff Shamandalie! I checked out your work from the beginning of your sketchbook to now and you've really made some huge improvements. I see that you're really hard on yourself, but I think you don't need to worry about taking a long time on things because you're making progress! Keep going!
Sycra - Hey Sycra. Thanks a lot for dropping by Looking back, i have made improvements I shall make some more progress hopefully!
Some more studies. The animal studies are actually for crimson daggers bloodsports#5. But looking at my schedule and mental state, i don't think i can complete it at all. Hopefully i could, for the next one.
First one is Nausicaa thumbnails bloodsports which i couldn't complete in the end. AND-
Starting drawing again on trains. ( the 4th image shows how easily frustrated i get D: )

A little more sketches on trains. Been learning a lot at work, my brain and eyes get fried after work, but in a good way. Need to spend less time on the wacom - 9 hours everyday is not really a good thing. But it doesn't really matter cause i could spend more time drawing with pencils/pens. As soon as i get used to the new stuff at work, i should be back on track.
hi Amirah, those pages in the Loomis book are very useful! But I think you can try focusing even more on getting the life and gesture in the figures. Right now it looks a bit like you are trying too hard to copy the book and not really feeling the whole dynamic of the gesture...if you get what I mean.
btw do you know any places in SG for figure drawing that are less ulu (for me that means closer to west/central) than Goodman Arts Centre?
krysjez - I get what you mean, thanks for the feedback! Sorry about the art thing, sadly there's not many that i know about. Singapore's art scene is really tiny! There's another one that i think has drawing classes i randomly passed by that area a few weeks back - http://www.myartspace.com.sg/
It's at Dhoby Ghaut, hope that helps!
Anyway, this is the first life drawing session i've been to since the past two years! This is so embarrassing. Hopefully i could keep this going.
I've got a secret to tell. I haven't drawn/painted for almost 6 weeks. The last post was literally the last time i held the pencil. I had been terribly busy at work and i get so exhausted mentally (though this is not good enough of a reason). So i decided to paint again.
Study of Arya Stark - WIP, 1hr.
Think i zoomed in too much, only concentrated on one small area. D:
Hopefully, i could get a new monitor next month. This old second hand monitor is way too small. And i don't even know if the colours are right.
Okay a little update on this. Still trying to get used to opacity settings being turned on. I don't know what i'm doing. AHAHAH.
That being said, i'm currently using Photoshop CS6 Beta to paint this. Love the new default brushes. Not recommended if you're working on a slow com.
