Weeelll, not much I can tell you except to keep doing what you're doing, lol!
I like the first "retarded watercolor thingy" best and your gestures are awesome.
Thank you for your comments in my SB, they were helpful!
Love the pink watercolor"monster" on page 1, hehe, keep on drawing=)
In the first picture theres two little sketches I made while talking on the phone (the conversation wasn't particularly interesting). They're kinda stupid but heh...
The second picture is a self-portrait full of flaws that looks nothing like me, however I'm happy with how the shading was coming along (I used a 2b Faber Castle pencil this time instead of the Staedtler I usually draw with)... too bad I couln't work on it more since I had only 1 hour to do it.
Hi There Pantless _waderer, thx for ur reply i like ur contours they r simple and very selfassured drawn... keep it up
I really like the story about how you found your calling to draw.
I'm thinking about quitting my job and going to artschool myself. But I'm affraid Í'm not good enough to make it work out. Kudo's to you for having the balls to drop what you where doing and starting all over.
It's really nice how you put down so much expression with so little lines.
That's a essential skill. To just SEE what lines are essential to make a image work out.(I think)
Life is like a box of chocolates, when you're a fat glutton it lasts shorter.
Really really like the poses in post #37! The figures really flow and look balanced and relaxed. Try and get that quality in the rest of your work too! In post #39, the far leg looks really flat the way you've shaded it - maybe following the form with the hatching would help?
thek - Yeah, that leg looks really bad. I was running out of time so I drew that leg really fast at the last seconds and ended up making it look like a cardboard cut-out.
Two quick faces I drew this morning to paint with acrylic... problem is, I never painted a face in my life and, even worse, I suffer from that infamous artist disease known as "fear of failure", so I'm to afraid to start
But I will anyway...
wow. it seems you draw wholeheartedly and much, so you're improving.
of course, there are weaker pictures too, but you are able making beatiful works already. I love those watercolor babes [though they have too long arms, especially the last one, but her pose is beautiful]
after one year? I feel ashamed. for me, drawing a lot every day (no matter the quality) is a dream but you do it! keep it up!

Olá, tens aqui umas coisas fixes, as tuas linhas são bastante boas e o trbalaho tradicional parece fixe, uma coisa importante é ter bons pinceis, especialmente para a aguarela (e paciência para ir construindo a cor aos poucos, e cuidado para guardar os brancos, etc...).
Try to improve your picture quality, take photos with good ligth and then at least toggle with brigthness/contrast.
Bom trabalho, continua.
I dunno why I wrote that, really... though I understand I wished for so "much" studies at that period of mine... now I'm more productive (faaaaaaaaar not enough, though).
you vanished for a long time, but you brought so nice figures today. they're graceful. now I make many gesture studies every week, but my drawings lack such charm... yet
you draw nice figures, you should draw more
Ei meu. brigadao pelo comment ainda estou a trabalhar naquele desenho e sim, ainda faltam alguns constrastes.
Tens aqui coisas já bastante consistentes sem referência mas talvez devesses trabalhar mais no preenchimento mais o preenchimento; e tenta fazer estudos mais demorados ( 3-5 horas).
Força nisso. Continua
edit: quanto aquelas caras; eu também sofro dessa doença por isso so pinto em photoshop. Não há Alt+z nos acrilicos. Experimenta isso.

A tua mãe - Tens razão nisso do trabalhar o preenchimento e fazer estudos mais demorados. Eu estou sempre a dizer a mim próprio que o vou fazer mas depois pego no lápis e só me apetece fazer esboços rápidos... mas vou ter mesmo que começar a fazer sombreados.
Some quick no-ref gestures. These came out a little better than usual, I think.
hi Pantless Wanderer!
I really like your painting of the wooden mannequin, it's like he's gazing off into the unknown.
Those last gestures look good too, considering these were no ref.
Keep on posting man!
You and your sister are talented!
I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!
MY DAY JOB http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=136204
MY ANGRY SKETCHBOOKhttp://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...129015&page=13
good sketching keep it up
to me it looks like you got a nice skill of technical drawing. you do accurate studies of chairs and other object with lines. also the color paintings show much volume and light. your (what seems to be) freehand drawings and characters look a bit stiff and hard lined too. Maybe its because of the things I mentioned earlier? I would challenge you to go more loosely and play more with curvy shapes. Maybe do more mass studies to get an even better grasp of forms?
thanks for the comment in my SB
the ANGRY filipino - Me and my sister are thankful for your words
lilnebo - Thanks! I look foward for your new sketchbook since the improvement you made during your "old" one was amazing.
eparts - Thanks for the advice. You're totally right about the "stiffness" in most (all?) of my figures and that's something I have been working on lately.
Haven't updated for three months and probably wont be able to update that much during the next months either... it's hard to find the time to do personal work\sketching worth of being posted with so much boring school work to do
Anyways, heres a watercolor drawing (or painting) I did as a school assignment. We had to work with the watercolor directly without any kind of pencil under-sketch so I struggled a bit with this one.
PS: God, I really need to buy a new camera. Pictures taken with a 1.3 camera make for a very ugly sketchbook
I like your sketches your stuff looks really good.
sometimes your lines are beautiful and very confident, sometimes they are not. howcome?
It's just that sometimes I feel confident about my abilities (kinda) so it reflects on my lines; while other times I'm very insecure and feel like I have no future in art...
Your figure and head construction has improved a lot! Try to keep this rhythm despite the boring school work. Also you have a really good eye for painting as you show with the Mannequin so keep doing still life studies! Success in art is a journey, not a destination. Eventually you'll be running along!
Thanks for the comments Clochette and Eon.
I've been holding off posting stuff in the hope that I would have been able to buy a good digital camera by the next time I would update... but alas, I'm still poor, so here's some more ugly photos of my stuff. The last four are Vilpu, Vilpu, Sheppard and Bammes, respectively.
