Nice poses ! Where does references come from ?
A bit less fan of the shading this time, but you're doing a good work !
Yeah trying different mediums is damn good & pleasant !
hey shad, thanks again for the comment.
For references I use posemaniac and the nude reference on the forum: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=1813
I will start to paint somewhere next week. I will begin with watercolour so let's see what I will make from it.
some more studies:
thanks for the visit
btw i noticed something in your sketchbook. it might just be your scanner but if isn't then it might be a problem for you when u start painting. ur skeletons look toasty, which is just probably u upping the values so that the form pops out. the white paper defeats the purpose of upping those values. a darker background would help with this and keeps ur values in line. this wouldn't bother me until i saw a couple figures that got the same treatment. below is the skeletons that u drew with a quickie paintover. the one of the left seems to fade in the background while the one on the right doesn't. i overlay a white mask on top of the right one to lighten it up a tiny bit. your values are dead on except that they're darker then they should. a lot better examples can be found on the forum here. scroll a little ways down to the figure drawing and u'll see the quick fix for it is to just have a dark edge around the figure to keep u from toasting ur figures. keep up with those awesome studies!

violetbeat thanks for advice, after I read your advice I took my drawing with the skeletons and I compared it with the drawing on my screen. And I don't see much difference. But there are still some difference between them. The only thing I notice is that the background isn't white anymore and changed to grey when I post them so that means when I take a photo from my drawing it will darken my hole drawing so that's mayby the reason why my shadows look to dark. But mayby it's just me because using much contrast in my drawings.
When I see your paintover from my drawing I see what you mean but the non toasty skeleton is way to light from value if I look to my real drawing here.
But I see what you mean and I will use the technique to make the edges darker but I will only use it if I make good drawings and not when I'm making studies because it takes too much time then.
But thanks again to report this problem to me.
btw: this evening I will post an update
Don't have much for today because I have no time but I will post more tomorrow
Poses and bones are improving, your line is less hesitating I guess ! Good job, just keep at it !
don't have much today eather... but I try to update every day.
Here are some gesture/shading studies
Those studies are great !
But maybe you should try to darken them a little less ? Using a softer pencil or something ? It seems too dark to me, but I can be wrong !
I want to see more from you ! Maybe try a little imagination ?
you are training a lot, this is very good to your evolution. i can see you are evoluing
good luck with studies anatomy
if you have some time please visit and comment
shad: hey, my drawings are a bit dark but they are just studies so I don't really try to get them in the good value, I just want to learn the anatomy and form so I don't pay much attention the the shadings. But when I will start drawing for real (non studies) I will pay attention about the rendering.
btw, now I'm only use a HB pencil
warLoCk550: I just wanna say thanks man, it motivates me that there is evolution in my work.
Well... I posted this message because I wanna let you guys now I'm gonna go away for a couple days (3-4) but after then I come back and will start drawing again and will start to paint.
I want more updates !
I guess 4 days will be a long time without a pencil in the hand !
I don't know why you are going but well, enjoy your trip !
naidy: hey and thanks to comment again and thank you for the encouragement
Shad-: wow, I appriciate it verry much you comment on almost every post from me.
Mila: hey, thanks
Today I started working again, and as I said I painted today so here are some watercolors. I tried do do some studies from environment and getting use to the technique from watercolors.
Wow the second try at snowy moutains is just briliant o_o
Do you paint on watered paper or do you just water your pencil ? Looks like you did the sky with watered paper and the moutains themselves with dry paper !
Anyway it's very nicely done ( and absolutely fantastic compared to what I can do with my watercolours xD ) ! Just keep at it !
(Ho and yeah I'll continue to comment your posts for sure, I want to see how you will improve and all ! ^^ )
Mila, Marian Rowling and Shad thank you
shad: the sky is wet on wet and the hills are wet on wet and wet on dry. but the first hill with those bleu dots on is done in dry on dry. So I mixed all the techniques but it worked pretty fine if I read you comments.
Here I finished the paper from the snowmountain with some other exercices but they are terrible. But I post them anyway because I learned a lot from them.
Tommorow I will draw again so you won't see any paintings then.
Long time I didn't posted but that's because I couldn't because I was on holiday, meanwhile it was my birthday too.
But I will start tommorow again with drawing so I will upload my drawings and will start posting again then.
hand studies, started bad but I improved quickly, still it's not good enough...
this is lovely i think

I like your shade values Hamster! i get a bit shakey about working to much into the darker values. I heard it has something to do with artist confidence when you try to keep everything light.
Anyhow, out of curiosity what materials do you use?
Velocity Kendall: thanks man, that is my favorite too.
I will try to paint some more landscapes in this week
Ixallus: thank you for the compliment. all posts on this page I used only a mechanical HB pencil from 5mm thick, only in this post I used 2H, HB, 2B pencils.
and what do you mean with confidence? if you mean confidence in real life I don't agree.
But if you mean confidence in drawing I can agree. Because if you just start drawing you are a bit scared to draw because your afraid of doing it wrong and then you begin to draw in light values (that was in my case).
Here is a studie from yesterday and today
Great stuff! I can definitely see improvement throughout the pages!
I wish i could shade like you do Also dig the watercolors, such a beautiful medium ^^
Keep practicing proportions and all that, but don't forget to have fun as well.
