Naidy- thanks, yes I am.
glad u think so, been doing them quite alot. But sooo much more to learn.
thats the fun with art, you will never be done, there is always more to do
Parsa- thanks for coming by. I think you are very right. I will start immediately with some envori studies. thanks, I really needed to hear that. cheers
Alright this one looks horrible, mostly cause of her face I hate doing faces. thought the body was kind of good. value study with charcoal. But as I hate them I need to do them more.
I will share even stuff like this that I think is really awful, but I learn from it
any tips about the face? it looks really freaky.
had as last weekend a 3 hour croquie session. This time the model was a guy which was great cause I havnt drawn men that much and I havnt ever drawn a male model.
He did a lot of longer pooses and some shorter, the longest was 18 min and the shortest was 1 min.
at first it didnt go that well but with time it got better. I really felt that I learned alot this day. He helped me out with technique and what pens I could use and such, a good guy.
the time from the pose is written on each. hope u see improvement.
good work mate those sketches have a nice movement
keep it up bro

The life drawing is good, you need to keep doing that. I haven't been lately myself, need to get back into it.. asdjaslkdjaslkdj. =)
Mmm, for the moment, try simplifying what you are seeing from life. Heads are eggs, chests are barrels, pelvises are boxes, legs and arms are cylinders, that kind of thing.
Keep up the good work and have a fantastic week! =)
Qlotzan- thanks m8 glad u dropped by!
Kung- thanks, I feel like I really learn from them, will keep doing them, as it looks now I have 4.5 hour every week you should try and go ur self!
Thats a good tip, having a hard time doing them simple studies but I know I should. will try that. cheers
reading in a book about muscles and bones, trying to redraw them of my own and write down a few words about them. sorry cause it is in Swedish so most of u cant read it.
Think it is good to have some knowlage of where things are and how they are connected to the rest.
chest-study shortest post ever!
Nice studies. I need to do a ton of chest studies myself, lol. Damn the human figure for its complexity!
Deadly- thanks m8 I have another nude model session tomorow this will make me better! yeah wish we could be eggs that like to draw. would have been a lot more easier haha. but still the complexity make the challenge, and what fun would it be if anyone could draw the human body with perfection? cheers m8 and keep drawing til ur hands bleed
Do you take a figure drawing class or something? It'll be two more semesters for me, because my college requires that you take Drawing I and II before it .
Deadly- To bad u cant go at them right now, but it will be worth the wait. Yes I do. we have one every wednesday that is free for all the students. then we have one every saturday at another school that cost alittle but its totally worth it. It really makes u improve.
I finally bought some A3 papers to use on my croquie sessions. But they dont fit in the scanner so the pics will be a bit blurrier because I have to take photos with the camera. I really need ro start drawing bigger when doing these poses and thats why I got larger papers.
the first 4 pics are from wednesdays session and the rest is from this saturday.
this saturday felt very good, I think my nude model drawings are getting better and better. Also starting to break down the barrier about being afraid of drawing feet and hands. They are really hard but I have started to draw them out evern if they look bad, think this is a good step forward.
yea...and I tried out oil for the first time today. will show u in a min
thanks for ur support
I tried out oils for the first time in my life today. I have been working 5 hours today at this very first piece. I made a charcoal sketch first from one of the poses which I did last saturday and then I just played around. I know the proportions maybe aint perfect but that wasnt the main quest here. I just wanted to try out oils and play around with them to get the feeling on how to use them. Still I think it looks kind of good, the leg to us and the arm have some serious foreshortening which is very hard to nail imo.
Had to let it be for today cause it needs to try. then I will lay down a second layer of color at some places and draw some more with a charcoal pencil over it, especially the hands and the feet. need to do something with the head and the eye but dont know what really. will make the "fire staf" look even more hot, wild and mostly bright.
I think oil colors are very fun to paint with even though they are hard too. keep on dropping in for the continue in this one.
Very nice. You should have seen my first acrylic attempt, LOL. I think it was a month or two ago.
I like the softness of your painting.
Deadly- Thanks m8. I would love to see it. I will work on this one for a long time. There will be more fire in it and more nature I have a free day off today and will try to draw alot, if u got any ideas of what to draw please tell me! keep drawing m8
keep going brother , i like your last drawing in post #347 its so meaningful and also good colors you have chosen makes me feel strange .
Ramin- Thanks it is hard with oils and colors but im gonna continue with that one alot and try to learn how oils work. thx for always pushing me.
trying to draw a monster from the artbook to the game Bioshock. Thought I had to try out to draw something totally different.
update on Bioshock fanart and a hand study from my own hand must do alot of hands. too tired right now. will continue tomorrow. Feel that I lack of imagination right now, dont know what to do. have to try some environments like some of u said.
update. gonna go with the same colors as the original, just a little green/blueish tone on some places otherwise all done by mechanical 2b 0,5. My first monster attempt, feels good that I got out of my box and did some totally different.
Now -> food
trying to take my time to study the hand in different gestures.
did some faster hand studies and some feet. What to draw now? hm
self2note - the hands are often wider than u think
Hey PMB. I think you should draw architecture today, or man-made environments. I'm sure it's out of your comfort zone, just like mine. I think I might do some imaginative drawing today (with a bit of reference) in attempt to create some concept ideas. But the next 3 days after today, I'm going to bull through some manmade stuff (because it really annoys me).
Also, I'll PM you some pretty useful stuff....at least for concept art that I've found recently.
Deadly- thanks for the tip. I think Im to tired now but i promiss Ill do this the next time i draw. It really is way outside my comfort zone. Good that u pointed this out. its great to do stuff that you usually avoid. Itll be fun to see how they turn out for you. Imaginary work is also outside my box, I might try that some day too. thanks Ill check it out. take care
made a fast study, drew her on an A3 which is good for me. Gotta try to draw larger need to draw her face but i always screw them up.
I strongly recommend doing some gesture studies
awsome mate hard worker as usual you've got a nice improvement here keep it up

Some hard work going on here, hands are a slightly different kettle of fish.. tell you want really helped me was looking at Sycra's videos way back when..
Here's the link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUbt1l4tBJg
Good luck with your next drawing bro.
great work in this thread so far, you are really working hard and scanning it all! One crit would be look at the angles of limbs in life drawing. Think"what angle is that" then draw in a straight line and let it continue a little past the limb. These lines will build up while you draw and allow you to see mistakes more easily! If you don't know what I mean pm me and I'll do a little paintover for you
Andres- thanks I will do that having a session on saturday, unfortunately I missed that last week but Ill go this weekend.
Qlotzan- Thanks m8, a very sweet comment, glad u see improvement.
Kung- thanks for the link, a good video it is! Hands are a pain in the ass haha. take care.
Bethany- thanks I have been going to live nude model sessions but Ive missed a few now but will attempt one on saturday.
Thomas- thanks, I wanna show u guys most of the stuf I do Sounds smart, thanks for the tip m8!
having a little rough time right now with personal things in my life so the drawing section has gone away alittle. Trying to get back but Im having a hard time consentrating but I will try.
first two pics are both an update of my oil experiment and the other is just some playing with oil, colors and concept
the third one is all done with a black marker pen and is from the comic- the walking dead.
the last one is a quick attempt of a church sketch. need to try draw more buildings!!
I really like the style in comics, graphic novels and I like the black and white, extreme shadow/lightning relationship
Ill try draw more when my flame goes up! cheers
i really like the inked one
Nice sketchbook! Looking good!
Hardly ever see people from sweden here on CA, where in sweden are you from?
Keep it up and take care!
Hey PMB, hope you get along well. I know you're a bit unmotivated but I hope you come back bursting with energy! Looking forward to it buddy!
No posts in a couple of weeks! Hope you're at least starting to feel better. I hope to see something from you within the next couple of weeks! Regain your vigor!
