why do I always draw old people, I hate that.....>_<"
what am I doing so wrong.........
hey, im seeing improvement here : ) study more from anatomy books and photo reference, it helps alot! dont give up, keep on drawing and you'll eventually get through the bad drawings to the good ones.
.: drawing fundamentals 01 :.
yeah, dude, like yina said youre improving every time. i know it seems like its going slow, but keep at it, cause whatever you're doing its helping. take care.

sup, Fayt! it's been a while since I commented here. One thing I'm noticing is that you tend to work really fast. I have speed problems myself, actually. Slow down. Use your pencil to measure angles and lengths. Copy those skulls and bones to exactitude. You'll see the improvement soon enough.

thanks for the tip, panda, I will do that:
dou itashimashite (you're welcome).
hey dude, i will say that on the most recent ones, on the first page, the lips should curve more into the face...right now they are straight. i can do a quick paintover of it to show what i mean, if thats ok with you; if not, its whatever, no problems. the second one, the one thing that really, REALLY caught my eye was the shadow of the sleeve under the raised arm...i really like how you did that and how the shadow changes sharpness as it goes around the arm. not knowing much about value, i can't say whether its right or wrong, but it looks nice. keep working hard dude; good luck!
thanks this is nice^^Originally Posted by purb36
hope I can see more replys from you soon.........
look at these, I am somehow not able to draw heads in perspective, this is pretty depressing.....
I should have shown this tio you purb earlier, I am so sorry.......
(found it here at CA!!!!)
I tried to do referance to this image, cause it is unbeliveable perfect!!!!
but it is so difficul, well I tried real heads and no skulls, but I am even not able to copy those skulls, too many lines or too less talent, I do not know.......
I think I will not improve if I only copy images.....photo referance it not the best way, is it?? maybe it is good, but not all the time, should I start with bodys again?
hadn´t I posted this in that other post of mine??
in one week I have christmas holydays and want to study effectively, so please some replys and advices this time^^

Well don't take this wrong but it's no surprise that you aren't able to draw heads in perspective. YOu do even say that you are not able to draw this skulls from reference and this is nothing special as well. You really need to get the basic ball- headconstruction right ( http://www.anticz.com/heads.htm ). Draw HUNDREDS of these ( I am not kidding, draw about 300 of these at first) And draw them from every angle. Do not shit em on the paper, draw every line carefully and with thinking about what you do. And if you have mastered to draw these simple heads from each angle you can think of, you can move on to the skulls. If you want to draw real portraits without even knowing how the very basic construction of the head works, it's simply senseless to go on.
Keep on working hard(er) and in a few months you wont have the problem with drawing a right looking head in perspective!
O_o" god, I will do that, heads are the most importet parts in my view..so I will do that!!!!!!!!!!!!!Originally Posted by Gloominati
yo fayt, whats up? i like what youve done with the charcoal stuff (it is charcoal, right?) it has a nice feel. go on, experiment with different media, and have fun with it; maybe itll help you undestand things that you dont understand at the moment if you can work things from a different perspective. some of the recent heads (12.17)...its like you grasp the lines, but you're just copying them. when doing them, you really need to think about it, and understand why the lines are where they are, not just memorize them where you see them. understanding them will help you be able to draw from your own head. you have one really good one on the 3rd page of that post, 3 other decent ones in that post. some of the ones that are off are messed up because you werent seeing the head as a ball, and as a result you didnt make the lines to line up the features curved enough. like gloom said, really study the ball-construction method and do hundreds of them. so its not like you cant do it...you just need to get consistent at it. i couldnt tell you how many heads i had to draw, how many years it took me to learn how to draw heads in good perspective, and that was with no real direction. you have direction, you have resources...all you need now is the drive to get better. i think you have it, but its up to you to prove it. so get crackin on some heads!
ps. i cant see the most recent post, its just red x's, so if youve started to do heads i cant see it. but either way, keep on drawing man. happy holidays dude, enjoy break and draw tons.
This one is VERY nice. Do more of this! I am very glad to see you learning. To tell the truth, I didn't think you'd stay around so long. But I'm glad you did, and are listening. You are doing the right thing! Keep listening and improving, good luck!
here some studies, there more, just didnīt want to upload all of them:
thanks you two, which ones are right, purb36,???
is my art that boring?
not worth commenting? sad, but itīs also a hint, I should try harder!
Starting from the beginning of your sketchbook and working my way to the end, I can see that you've been improving exponentially. Keep it up, you're doing good work.
thank you for the support!!!!!
I goona keep uploading some studies:
