Hi everyone, i want to show you my works and in the same time observe my progress. My main goal in drawing is to draw extremely fast every kind of drawing-painting-illustration (i use that skill in new kind RPG games ). I mostly concentrate on digital painting. Recently I discovered that i need to master my pencil skill and anatomy first and then become better at digital. So i will start from uploading some of my recent pencil works (from nature). Tried to do it as fast as always... I also wrote the time i needed to draw each work...
critique always welcome....

sorry for a long pause, i noticed that i need some rest and afrer that, start attacking drawing with all my strength... from this day i poromised myself to draw at least 1 hour a day... maybe i can endure longer.. let's see recently i feel so much lazy inside...
some crappy sketches here
Nice pose and animal studies bro, keep it up
ok as i promised, i sketched even longer than an hour , i hope it won't finish tomorow...
generally sketched random things from reference...
some pencil sketches, studies of horses...
thanks dlincoln, but what bothers me the most is my line quality which is rather crappy yet. I'm not good at drawing details but i hope it will change soon
this time some musical instruments sketches...
this time some old locomotive studies (i am good at finding random references )
found that i cant draw wheels in perspective properly..
so today i decided to do more quick sketches, each of them are about 1-2 minutes...

Fun stuff, there's a little bit of everything in here
I read that you want to be super fast at drawing, I got some advice from one of my teachers that slowed me down a bit- she said to take your time and learn to do it right and speed will come as a result.
Sometimes you gotta slow down - I think it's better for your heart
anyways- keep up the good fight! Happy sketching
Rhubix - thank you very much for your comment, i'll try to do more detailed sketches then ... and of course, i hope my line quality will improve too, especially quality of straight and smooth curved lines...

your studies are looking pretty good. Keep up the hard work!
"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville
thank you for motivation wooden mango
some facial expressions this time...
some shitty architecture sketches, sorry for crap like that, i was a little tired today...
ok, promised myself not to do anything from imagination to the end of this month, finally it ended and i can do some stuff
quick imagination digital sketches
Octic - I am so glad that you like my arch sketches, I though they are poor and crappy cause my line quality sucks thanks for tutorials, i will definitely use it in future
here is some anatomy sketches
first image is from imagination for warming up...
Hi there, I'm impressed that you'r still drawing everyday as you resolved before.
The dwarven archer is soo cool, really
PS. Wbijaj na skyp'a kiedy będziesz mógł.
this time almost everything is from nature, sorry for quality but had to make one day "the day of laziness"...
thanks mariposa, i am trying to improve my line doing arch drawings
ANtY93 - thanks
update mostly from imagination, trying some ballpoint pen
im angry at myself for posting crap like earlier pen drawings...
trying as hard as possible to enchance my precision and line quality... anybody knows a solution for it?? I have a feeling that my hand is shaking a little and it is hard to draw precisely... anyway, i will try every available method to get rid of that feeling...

sorry, this time only 2 sketches and not so good... im in a bad mood for drawing
These are all really good. Loving how you render with pencil (the crosshatching). I can't see any evidence that you're not able to control your pencil strokes or precision. Is it possible that you're worrying too much? Or too much coffee? LOL. All I can say is that you're on the right track, lovely line quality in these drawings, keep it up!
mariposa - thank you, maybe im a little too obsessed about that, maybe its just my imagination and i demand too much from myself... i hope it will get better soon
update, some knight equipment drawings...
I decided to make something like Rpg system for challenging my art skills and i think it is the best method to motivate myself, and of course i will set some achievments to complete every month or year
Remember, i am drawing and updating sketchbook regularly everyday! I will be doing a summary every 2 weeks coz i think its optimal time for seeing some progress (not too short, not too long)
if u think that my summary needs some changes relative to my present skills, just say it!
summary and some digital sketches from imagination
first achievment for this month is to increase my drawing precision and learn some more anatomy

really crapy this time and only two but i am not feeling good
Wow you really demonstrate a lot of improvement from your first post to your last. I love the posting with all the ball point pen drawings from imagination. Your art rpg system is a pretty interesting idea. Although I do not know if progress is something cut and dry enough to be measured with levels. It would also be difficult to objectively and accurately rank yourself. Anyway keep up the hard work. I would love to see some more finished pieces from you.
My Sketchbook would benefit from your critiques.
anonanon - THANK YOU, or i should say "you inspired me man!!!" I am not sure i can measure my own skill with this summary but i will try something new to become original haha !!
