to pet or not to pet..
sweet.. lets get some muscles on these boxes
my cat deleted all of the layers and then walked all over the keyboard as to max out the undo history. So the work from yesterday was lost. oooops.
its kinda creepy but looks very intresting....this way of studying should pay off soon!
btw, where did you get those photos of anorexic women?

Jatherip: I hope so.. it's strange to study a body like that.. I feel bad for those girls
I just typed naked anorexic on google and got plenty of image results ^^
it would be useful to make a video of myself drawing a shape, the ribcage for example, and then watch it in a mirror. I'd like to see the exact moments when i start creating a shape that isn't symmetrical at all but that my mind believes is close
a lot of interesting ratios for the arms and hands..
zoom out too far and there's no point to anything
zoom in too close and everything's momentous
use your telemental lense to perfectly analyze and loose the contrast of emotions
even recognizing this- need a lense adjustment

I thought my stylus was broken because my cat keeps thinking it's her arch rival
which it is
I tried a different tip and the pressure problem was solved immediately! It was really annoying too because it would detect pressure even not being pressed. Which not only drags annoying lines all over the place until you lift the stylus very high, it also prevents switching to the eraser tool, and makes it hard to use the ruler..
All in all, whew* glad I don't have to hunt down a wacom store in seoul

I do find the chillout radio station quite nice to draw to
my cat loves me
at this rate it will definitely take too long..
kiwigarbage: Thanks! doesn't feel like i'm doing it fast enough or well enough but.. i guess that's the road
started doing some copies("analysis") out of mangas, thought it would help to see how other artists i admire have made the transition to paper... really wish i could see their process too
got 2 9's #'s @ club last nite but no return texts today -_-; one seemed to really like me too :/
almost a 27.5kg curl today, tim was at 34kg 3 yrs ago so.. guess i'm still not there
some of these last studies are coming along really well. Good thing that you started doing 30 days of anatomy, although I don't envy you! I would not want to do 30 days straight of anatomy. The secret is to do little and often once you have a good foundation knowledge (or so I've heard lol).
No crits really you seem to be working hard and that is 90% of the battle to success.
Keep going and I'll be back to check out the progress
too frustrated to explain
wont let myself not draw so i draw shit
perfect time to start a comic
Hello there, just looked through your whole sketchpad. Glad you're starting to push through your boundaries and doing plenty of studies.
I notice you're also doing the same thing with noses I used to. It feels odd drawing noses 'normal' sized at first, and you'll have to urge to 'make it right' but once you start, you'll realize how off they look when they're altered to be smaller.
Anyways, its refreshing to see you're working hard. Keep up the good work!
ThomasM: Thanks, although as you may have noticed it fell away from anatomy after a while and just became 'whatever'. I'll definitely go back and rework things out from their base again later though. Thanks for checking out my book ^^
Sean: haha.. thanks man, someday..
Naidy: yeah your noses are looking good, i've checked out your sketchbook a few times before. Thanks for taking a look at mine ^^
I was drawing every day but it was so hard to get myself to do it that i wasn't happy with any of the effort. I'm still not
it's a mix of manga studies and random stuff from imagination. the author of 'Battle Angel Alita', Yukito Kishiro, has an amazing sense of perspective. He is able to draw characters at any size clearly, while manipulating their limbs. This lets him put in a lot of really nice shots from a distance that emphasize the action. Which he is also a master of. The dynamic of his scenes are second to none.
Oh! Great is also able to create exceptionally dynamic scenes, which are even more detailed and clear in concept. I can't wait to see what his next series will be about.
breaker is nice, partly because it's korean, but the women really do have a different style than japanese manga
ahahah.. i just realized i don't appreciate it when the authors whine about their poor skills on the last page of a manga, so probably people with no hands dont like when i whine
also a thought occurred to me that when i was trying to draw people my drawings came out better because people are harder and i tried harder, but now that i'm trying to copy relatively easier manga pictures my effort level dropped proportionately.. not a fun thought, i'd rather think i'm depressed than mechanically lazy
things are going good outside of art!
Some nice work so far although you need to decrease the image size and make the lines thicker, I can hardly see what I'm looking at. Some crits:- you need to focus on studying anatomy more, some of the people look too thin or just really flat. Also try to wash out the anime style, it will only hold you back, and focus on realistic faces a lot more.
"How'd you like them apples?"
dsacc: in 100% of the cases now the size is what i want it to be. The big pics are the size i drew them at and the size i want to see them at later when i see my sketchbook again. Thanks for the line thickness heads up.
I definitely see the value of pose maniacs now.. not as an anatomy study tool but it's excellent in other areas
great day today~~
