LtPlissken: thank you so much for checking my sb again :')
weekend. i missed you
faces from random refs
more from refs
My lack of skill is horrible,
my lack of skill is embarrassing,
my lack of skill is sad,
my lack of skill is... a lack of skill.
kamikazel33t: thanks a lot for stopping by, i appreciate that and right, maybe this could also help to get better with drawing hands from mind, too.
those strange thoughts you can get by getting bored in school..
something to chill myself

Handmade higher quality foggy supernatural surprise over
the clouded monastery hidden demise. As I can see your soft heart
is becoming a victim of a secret elixir, which has been kept between
the shelves in the left wing of the old library. Only true love and hard
bravery can redeem your vulnerable heavenly crafted soul. The old
janitor from the dark woods, got his eyes on you. The poor girl
has no eyes on that drawing, she is crying in the dark, she is thinking
a lot about the future and the possible outcomes. She cannot give up now,
she cannot let any decision out to the wolves. As you are doing paintings
to chill yourself, a new rose has blossomed, a new hope has been born.
Everything dark has turned to bright and gold. A palace is what
you are building, a great spire of happiness, a home for the
hopeless. Big gravity well through the midnight scarecrow’s dwell.
Oh my, that poor girl have been left without her eye, she will find
her resort in that heavenly blue tower, and shed no more tears.
LtPlissken: hope is getting destroyed and regenerated all the time in my little, tiny world of mad insanity. i'm so appreciating each of your visits on this weird process which i keep calling my sketchbook.
shoes and a not-so-lucky maneki neko from life
LtPlissken: thanks man.
school is eating all my time. bwargh.
anyway, here is at last something i doodled and a little collage i put on my folder (if anyone cares at all)
looking forward for weekend
HarbingerofIllRepute: and all this stuff was awaiting your return. welcome back

I like when you implement some brutality between,
like for example that little doll, that doesn’t know how it feels like.
Life drawing came out really friendly and in high quality.
Are those erotic video tapes on the shelf?
So much new stuff! I can really see all the time and effort you put into it! maybe for a little while put quantity over quality. Do a bunch of quick strokey gestures and get proportions down. actiony poses and what not. and on the gestures you liked go back, enlarge them, and do a detailed run on them.
will be back here for more!
also you're shading just for shading's sake. I do that too. for everything u do imagine a light source and shade in respect to that. like import this :
into photoshop and shade over it with like a small brush, cross hatch it. that should help getcha goin, i'm going to do the same thing.
also another problem we share, connecting heads to bodies. so like drawing the neck with the head turned. so i'll try this... : http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-urQC8yq7b2...kbridgeman.jpg

LtPlissken: the funny thing is that all this "gore" stuff seems to happen between wannabe-cute kitsch. maybe i need zombies and violence to keep the balance of my creepy mind. and haha, no these are actually my mangas and some novel we had to read in school
DanBK: you'll never be left behind, dude mr. life-drawing-class
Shahan: thank you so much for checking my sb again. and i guess you're pretty right, i should probably really put more time in quick and rough studies to get a better idea of how things work... especially proportions. and thanks for the links, the neck perpectives look pretty useful (and cleaner than some in anatomy books)
so here are doodles i did in school.
i will get a lot more time after next week
so i turned 17 two days ago and i hate it.
now i suck even more at drawing for my age. but i will get more time to practice for a few weeks now.
Now I feel even worse about my own drawing skills , anyway it is great to see you get more time for you to practice Drawing and happy belated birthday. I think right now you need to focus on more quantity over quality try to generally learn everything you can about everything then start refining. I am not to sure on what you are planning to do for the future but I suggest if you plan on studying art do your research now and start working on the portfolio requirements for your targeted university.
Just want to wish you a bit late happy birthday. You are so
young but already have so much skills, simply amazing. I like
the way you are heading and I like how you are thinking.
The last digital paintings are a true imprint of your evolution
and art improvement. A bit more flourishing power, and
there will be fulfillment of your every desire. A few more
days and there will be Christmas, and we will celebrate,
all together. We will have popcorn, drink and magical
juices all together, in a big pink apartment. Hope
that your emotions and spirit are fully recharged
and that you are feeling outstanding. Hardly
can wait to see your newest updates.
kamikazel33t: thanks a lot . but there is absolutely no need for you to feel bad about your skills. i personally think that you're already better tham i am and , even more important, you seem to have way more potential in one finger than i got in my whole body. just believe in yourself like i believe in you
LtPlissken: hey there. i'm so appreciating your words... it's getting pretty hard to encourage myself to dare practicing but i really try. anywayz. there will be popcorn in a big pink apartment and a huge christmas tree that's decorated with magical candy.
finally something new
Feels bizarre seeing more sketchbooks of people who've started up here at 16.
You may feel frustrated now, but you're progressing at a decent rate! You've a good eye for detail and your faces are looking good, if a bit long, at some points.
If it's anything to you, when you're feeling particularly angry at your own work/style try not to compare yourself to others in your age group, it's easy for anyone to convince themselves the art world is full of 13 year old talents and that way of thinking won't help you when you're trying to keep drawing. ;D
Instead try to find where the weak areas in your work are and do exercises to combat them. Don't be "afraid" about messing up a picture. Sketches aren't sacred so never feel bad if you attempt something different and it looks awful. Just keep stretching yourself, because the more you do, the less daunting those sorts of things become, and the faster you progress as a result.
SO far I see some nice experiments with lines, shading, and mediums. I see some attempts at broadening your poses, too which is excellent.
No crits really, It's just nice seeing more promising youths up here so keep up the good work!
Naidy: first of all thank you so much for visiting my sb. it's funny but your sketchbook is one of those i already enjoyed looking at for a few times. but yours kinda lookslike you were already pretty good from the beginning of it and just got even better. but anyway, it's nice to see someone understanding my fears a little. thanks a lot for those tips, i really appreciate it
posemaniacs, 30 secs each
random ref + loomis
kind of circle practice
posemaniacs 30 secs, 2 pages 45 secs
loomis/mind and ref
Lots of good studies lately. Like the amount of work you post. More of anatomy studies is what I would suggest. Also, keep in mind that posemaniacs is usefull fot quick figure sketches (like you do) but never learn anatomy on those. It's just a wrong way to do that. Keep going!
yeah, i latley got a bit time so i try to do as much as i can do right now. and you're right, i need more anatomy studies. i guess i've been kinda afraid of doing much of them because i knew it would look crappy but i try to focus on what naidy wrote "sketches aren't sacred".
anyway, thanks a lot for visiting!
Well personally I would advise against learning anatomy now instead focus on forms(because anatomy consists of being able to combine basic forms together and if you can't draw basic forms correctly you won't really learn anything, that is also why you would find drawing 3/4 views really hard compared to side and front). Try going through the exercises in The Vilppu Drawing Manual(in that way you will be studying form and how to draw figures) as well as learn perspective(you can draw various boxes in your houses at different angles as well as draw a cube at every angle in perspective), learn & practice it till you have the rules and everything internalized eventually you will be able to draw things in correct perspective without guidelines. Do what you have been doing before and draw a lot from life. Keep it up, and stay with it!
kamikazel33t: well i didn't know vilppu that good but looking at the way he teaches, he kinda reminds me of hampton. geometrical drawing, perspective and value/shaow is what i wanted to do anyway. but i think i will keep up anatomy and maybe try to combine it with those basics. at last this is what a lot of books on anatomy seem to teach : how to construct forms and turn them into correct anatomy. thanks for the advice, i will probably soon post my first tries on this
