Hey ya CA people! I was tired of my old SB here (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho....php?t=102085), so i want a new and fresh one. Last month i started with my education on the Classical Academy in Groningen, wich is really fun! Dozens of life drawings and study's.
I want to work even harder, so hopefully this new sb can give me a kick in the nuts! Well, back to work

Great renderings and paintings! I really like that edward scissorhands portrait.
What I do for 2 minute poses is I try to quickly find the right proportions by "boxing" (not sure thatīs the right word ) out the body. Once iīve done that I then try to lay in the important lines. Hope this helps.
Waiting for the next update
Mumph: thanks for the comment! first you gotta see the large shapes, and then the small, really helpful for 2 minute poses!
sorry for lack of updating, i don't have something interesting to show you guys.
anyway just 2 moleskine pages, studying heads

Hey dude, where's the art? Your first post and in your fist scetchbook I saw so much amazing stuff, you're oozing with talent! You want all of us suckers catch up to you?
Anywys for the Lifedrawings, maybe try to simplify the lines of the body instead of structuring it out. You don't really have the time to go all proportions and measure and do shoulder-lines, hip-lines and such. And have fun!
been a long ass while, doesn't mean i stopped drawing
i'll try to update this sb more
I want to do more anatomy studies cuz i suck bigtime. be prepared for boring updates. For now, a frazetta study in acrylic on woodboard, and pencils on gessoboard, plan to paint it with oils. sorry for the super crappy photos.
amarryth: haha you don't need to thank me for that, there a lot people here that are WAY better!
~Faust~: hey, thanks for the compliments!
Really cool pictures in your sb your characters are really nice but you got the most respect for drawing this ostrich.
I tried to draw one yesterday and they are really hard to draw.
some john william waterhouse studies.
while i was doing them (from a picture on internet) i searched for maybe some works that i can see in real life, here in holland. Then i found this:
The Groninger Museum presents the largest retrospective of the art of John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) ever mounted. This exhibition features 92 paintings, drawings, and sketchbooks, and has been organised in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Arts in London and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in Canada. Splendid works will come from public and private collections in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Australia, the United States, Taiwan, and Canada. Few have ever been shown in continental Europe.
like a half hour drive for me
so yeah more to come

Wow, nice! You're really getting some fundamentals down here. Good thing they let you do lifedrawing so often, I recently had my first go and it taught me a LOT. Keep up the hard work, it's the only way!

Great, you're pushing the anatomy really good! I think you kind of witnessed most of the muscles by now... I think you should put your anatomy for a test every now and then with non-re stuff. Then you can see where your biggest flaws are atm. But what am I rambling Simply great work man!
I just loved that Lion, what did you use to paint that?
Keep the good work.
~Faust~: you're right! i will do that more regularly, cause thats the best way to find the problems!
Dan FS: made that lion with oil paint, doesn't look that painterly cause its with a lot of layers (glazing).
ChuanMing: hey! i can smell it too! just waiting for you to update, pm you soon!
studies for today, not that much..
i want to really know the human back, its like a puzzle
great studies man, the back's tricky to do subtly, always good to know what goes where to work out lighting issues. But yeah, would be awesome to see some non study made up stuff too. solid stuff.
