Gleb, 24, Russia-Moscow (bears). Worked in gamedev, only objects. Wanna do characters. Training daily as much as I can. Guess I've only started seriously kicking myself in February 2014.

Pixels incoming. Firstly, moleskine location design notes; secondly, other various scribblings.
Brb with Loomis studies later today.
Loomis. Proportions, 50 men plus 100 mannequin doodles not worth showing. Going for 100 mannequins \ day + life drawings + some enviros. Need to make 50 female figures as well.
200 more mannequins + 2 environments. Need to study the color theory.
Damn, 100 figures? great devotion dude. The female face looks a little masculine though. Generally the curves of the chin are less angular. The profile looks pretty good though
Ghast, thanks, we can never have enough time.
Falling behind on ~150 mannequins atm, gotta catch it up tomorrow. Putting up some older work.
Frustrated with Loomis mannequins, want to study some form. Sketching in the subway is tricky, since you feel like making omelet without breaking eggs while being launched to the geostationary orbit in a shuttle with no fastened seatbelts.
Some new updates. Still doing anatomy studies from Posemaniacs and Loomis.
Some grind for today

And more, plus Arrrthas WIP
And some more! I see improvements =)
100 more today in plans.
Done 500 more figures on holidays, here's the last 100.
Wow, you certainly don't lack motivation Really liking your pose studies, keep it up!
not to sound offensive but stop the digital stuff i mean the line sketches are good but MAN your real life pencil stuff is SO sexy.
I really would like to see more pencil stuff! how do you hatch like that??? its incredible!
the pencil stuff seriously blows me away.
THESE are just flat out impressive... do more stuff like this please!!!
this and this
if you could apply your pencil technique to more accurate and complex drawings i think that would be amazing.
the anatomy in one of them isnt so great, but i can see that is an old drawing and youve improved since .....your new anatomy is MUCh better but the gradients in that one are oh so nice
Sporus, thanks, I'll do some anatomy studies in pencil, promise. =P
As for today, +200 poses, several enviros and a quasi-female horror.
Hey man, great energy and nice start to your book.
I really liked the sense of light and volume in this one, great job.
I would say... hold off on doing those Loomis "templates" and do his other drawings, instead. There's more to learn from them,IMO... at least that's what I find. Drawing the template will make you better at drawing a stiff template; but drawing figures in real poses will lead your mind around in the same problem-solving ways that Loomis used to devise those drawings. You'll see how he foreshortened something, how he used a lighter line somewhere, where he dissolved a line into the background, feel the volumes of the body, etc.
But by all means, draw 100 mannequins from your mind, if you can do that, per day You'll be killing all of us in a short time with that
Oh my, lots of gesture studies!Keep it up!
I like your forms. And I agree with Sporus, your pencil line work looks great!
Been thinking a lot for last 2 weeks. Kind of disoriented at where to go (to which job) now and what to learn. Focusing on anatomy (skeleton), specifically — shoulders, arms, bum (-8, legs (knees!).
DeviantArt doesn't provide a whole great bunch of people to look at and get skilled, lots of beginners there (well, I'm just mega-idealistic). I want to understand illustration fully, but yet lack lots of conceptions. Although, refuse to follow non-explained points blindly.
your line work is quite stunning!, you still have a lot to work on, like some of your figures still look quite stiff and you still haven't quite caught the face structure though,keeo it coming, you're doing it right!
Thanks for dropping by my thread as everyone has said, your pencils looks good. Keep hammering away at that anatomy. Something we all need. Keep going!
should really work more. figured out the pelvis and the spine construction, and I really hate the upcoming pose exercises. but I'll make it, ppl good luck in art to all you out there as well!
also, I cut my hand on the moleskine the day before yesterday (this explaining the dried red in it) ))) art demands sacrifice! ))
Great job on those gestures! I see the anatomy in your last posts improving like crazy Posemaniancs is great, tho sometimes the poses are stiff. I find it better to draw from pictures (or sites that host photos of models like quickposes.com), they have different body types and all natural poses.
ps: That helmet/gas mask in post 27 has awesome values, keep it up
