its time to show you what i have made lately. i havent posted any pictures for a quite long time but i hope to change that. every C&C is welcome.
this could use some fixing
i tried to draw one picture of Markoīs pictures, i think it came out quite good(month or 2 old)
started it in school and finished at home...quick one
someones drawing was a ref.
then i found fengs webpage
someones drawing was a ref.

BUMP! I would REALLY like some comments or critics on what I did right or wrong and what to improve!!!
Finally I can show some new pictures i have done. I had to make them darker in Photoshop cause the scanner what i use at my mothers workplace makes them very bright.
Btw, comments are very welcome!!!
good effort, keep posting! ^^
.: drawing fundamentals 01 :.
Thank you Yina, new update coming in few days.
Again some new pictures...
I am also doing little anatomy studies because i found out that i have Sobottas Anatomy Atlas on cd and it is very useful.
Lets join hands everybody because it is update time. This time I will show you 3 watercolor paintings. These are 3 paintings I have ever done but more is coming. Because i have never used watercolors before i have Philip Berrillīs book called "Everyoneīs guide to watercolor painting" for help.
Just showing how these paintings turned out.
again I have some new pictures to show. And thanks to Kinnas i got a great sketchbook where i have filled almost 40 pages already, it looks like this...
again big thanks to Kinnas!!!
I started to use a new pencil i found, PITT graphite pure 2900 9B Faber-Castell. With this pencil it is easy to loosen up, practice shapes and it wont let you go very detailed.
These are done very fast, about 5min or less.
Like these watercolors landscapes. Try to add some yellow strokes to the trees to emulate the light of the sun.
Pichuerca - Iīm glad you like them and thanks for the advice, Iīll try it on my next paintings.
two pics from a trip to the beach(which is about 500m from my home ), have to repeat it some time soon. picture of a man took about 30 secs cause i had to do it very fast before he moved, it turned out quite good. the other one is just the view, also turned out quite good. third is just something with no meaning at all.
Hey! Your showing progress. Keep not using the grids, though. It'll train your eye better without them. Also try to observe the planes of the head. Loomis' books are a great source, as you've probably been recommended before Also for values and good lessons in training your eye, check out The Artist's Comlete Guide to Drawing the Human Head by Maughan.
dCepT- Thanks for the great advice, Iīll try to find the book.
Definately, I'm seeing improvement too. Keep practicing.
The Loomis books are out of print last I heard. Good news is that they're available free online. http://www.saveloomis.org/
You landscapes are looking good. Keep in mind about perspective. In last landscape sketch, the right side of the box looking object doesn't look like it's following the appropriate vanishing point. Hope that makes sense. Let me know if it doesn't.
SirRon - thanks dude!!! and thanks for the loomis link!!! The box looking object is a dressing box actually, people change theire clothes there when they are at the beach. the reason why the box is crooked is that in front under the box there is more sand then behind the box, so it is supposed to be in this position, i drew what i saw.
in regards to what siron said, hers a quicky paintover to show you how the clothing rectangle thingy should have consistent vanishing points,
im a noob at perspective, so im doing this to try to learn a bit as well, practice and all that.. so if im wrong someone pls step in
just some simple 2point perspective , with on the page vanishing points,
hope im helping
No man should be less than what he is.
silverslash - thanks for the quick lesson, I really appreciate it!!!!!!!!!!!! I can see what you mean.
Fut - decided to check out your sketchbook while I had a few - you're working hard it seems! That sketchbook rocks!
I've seen a lot of good suggestions on your thread already, and I've seen some improvement as well! your anatomy seems pretty good when you try at it - mastering the skull and facial anatomy is haaaaaard, but worth it. you're doing good, keep up the good work. Practice keeping your shading free, but a little more refined - use softer lines and less squiggles when you can. it's an effort at first, but i think it'll help you as you learn the planes of the face and such.
also, don't forget there are TONS of wicked and amazing tutorials on this website...search around if you hit a roadblock, or need inspiration, conceptart.org probably has what you need!

Maldrin - BIG thanks for the encouragement and advices, I really appreciate it. I will try to practice more my shading. Your post makes me want to draw more =)
hey, i am noticing that you have a lot of potential! i think you should start drawing faces and bodies from other angles though and start experimenting with more anatomical studies. they will help you build the illustion of form in your paintings and drawings
rollb82 - thank you! I was thinking the same thing, no time to waste, have to start drawing then!!!
Few days ago i bought myself gouache colors and today i painted my first gouache painting. I think it turned out quite well, it took about 2 hours maybe little more. Tell me what you think.
The Three Messengers
Also 1 sketch:
Hey fut, that is a pretty rad painting you have there. I really like the textures that are present in it. It kind of makes me think of folk art with the characters that are there. It's even a little creepy because they have beady little eyes and jelly bean bodies. I a now afraid of the little candies because of you. Keep it up!
rollb82 - I am really glad you like it!!! Purpose of this painting was to get hang of gouache cause it was my first time using it. First i painted the 3 guys floating and after that i started throwing all kind of colors for background. I think i have 5+ layers there =) . Every time i look at it i start liking it even more. For the final touch i used toothbrush to put on these little spots and then I used my finger to add random colors .
NB! Beware of the candies!!! They will EAT you!! lol
I like the sketches of the robots. I also think the last drawing is one of your strongest. The only thing i would suggest is showing the form of his deltoid (upper arm/shoulder) through his shirt. Don't be afraid of leaving in lines that help you create structure because it is pretty inspiring to see how someone works.
p.s. soldier with jetpack is sweet. i may have to do my own version of flying cowboy robots because of it.
rollb82 - thank you! thank you very much! [Elvis Presley imitation =) ]
Iīm glad i can make someone to draw! I have the power!!!
Btw, more robots coming in few days or today.
