Hi Dile thanks for leaving a comment in my sketch book! There are some nice drawing in your book I liked the flower on page 5. You are working hard you have made 7 pages of post so far! I think that the last painting isn't still finished you may spend more time on it.
Hey, thx, I think,
hm, I did never mention the word finished, did I ?
nah, I will do some more work on it, If Im not I can aswell call it speedpaint.
well, the Contrast is abit High, I will fix that.. maybe change background (or mmaybe not) the underlegs are far from done..
So I can say I just wanted to view my progress
Edit** Thx alot for stopping by Ivan.R

Thanks for replying in my sketchbook. Your last update is awesome man! I love the color and the lighting. Try tilting the picture plane so that he is not crooked and looks more balanced. keep studying and drawing. I'd love to see some more pencil work, and some anatomy.
Wolfbane: Thx Yeah I post some updates very soon, Im working
on some doddlings wich I will turn into real drawings / concepts later
Skeiff: you really Think i should tilt it back ? Doesnt it lost it's dynamic If I do ? I will post some Anatomy nextweek ( tomorrow- sunday)
So thx alot for stopping by, You rox! :rock:
Thats what I'm talking about Dile, that droid has some really nice legs. The the concept look of the droid, shoulders are great, torso, and the legs just really complete it. Your brush skills are really improving with the tablet, keep at it mate. From now on you have to draw legs on your concepts. the only way your going to get better is to draw what your not comfortable with, (I definitly need to take my own advice). Remeber to keep mixing it up, while drawing with your tablet and also pencil in the a5 . What to see some more anatomy studies also. keep up the good work dile.
Cool robot. I think that the tilt is a little awkward. I don't think that straightening it would rob it of its effectiveness because the pose is well done and threatening. I like the reflections and I'm hoping you'll add an appropriately kickass background.
I'm working on a painting right now that I'm hoping will be showable soon. Perhaps you'd like to be the only one who comments on it, as always?
wowy really nice updates, love that last robot you painted good job
Is your skeleton cow boy finished, or will you still work on it more? Sry it has already been said, but I still feel the skeleton's jaw is weird. maybe try to place the teeth a bit more foward like in gentlefood's model.
Hey thx, I will rotate the robot, or tilt it right abit then
I will try to get a good background on! so keep watching
Thx for replying!
Kais: Thanks alot man !
nah, I have skipped that skull now.. hehe, I should have done some
more resources about how skulls looks , I cant draw portraits, and
i guess they are very close related if you get what i mean
However, I will post some updates later today!! sorry for so many imageless
post ! I havent been in drawing mood, but now I am again!
(I have a tendence to start drawing late ,evening, night.. I will try to change that by doing studies at the morning!)
Hey Dile! What a nice SB! awesome dedication, which is one of them golden rules when trying to reach a goal. I should be more like you!
förresten, är det itne du som brukar hänga på GF också?
Kul att du är här också!
Keep this one updated!
haha, yeah, you really asked in ther right moment
heres the update
(from yesterday til' today)
Did this one in school!
Heads, as I mention before Skull/head/portraits is a big weakness for me. yet
Some sort of try at enviroment
Some sort of design for P-X. well its not amazing.. but...yey
Some sort of portrait.
Some sketches pretty happy with.
Heres the thing im happy with in closeup!!!!
I have a couple of more, but my camera did died before I had the time
to photo em
Anyways, I be update tomorrow, maybe tomorrow night
Hey man,nice sb.
I really dig the bot!
About your studies i would suggest that you should try to leave your marks with less lines.Spent a little more time on observation,and be more confident with your lines.Don't worry if you don't get it right the first time,eventually you will..
GentleFood3: Thx, and yeah you are right , they are mostly sketchy
I will do some more carefull drawings !!
Polonoid: Thanks alot!
Yeah I will spend time, well no excuses, so you just have to wait
for next update
Thx for stopping by, and I do really like that you takeing your time for me
I like your robot on the top there. The head intrigues me the most. I would Try to make that look more prominant in the rest of the figure.
Your ideas are great even though your drawing isnt up to par but i can still see where you are getting at which is a good thing. Just keep at the pencils man and dont let digital be a crutch for you, You'll notice youll be able to PS alot better with more drawings skills.
Hey thx kresh, yeah I know my drawings isnt even 50% but
hey, Im very new to drawing, thats a bad excuse, but I really trying to get my
drawings good, those last one were sketches, but even sketches counts
I only used an "F" pen and an INK (0.1) pen for those last..
so maybe some more values and carefuleness would be the shit for me
I post some updates later as I'd already promised
the update i was waiting for!
nice work Dile.Please, please don't start drawing a full figure withut a proper base construction drawing.We see you can do it, so use what you've learnt!
Then, practice n those head.Loomis has some nice stuff, so try some planar shading and his exercise, they're so easy you just HAVE to learn
the enviro look quite good, you should work on some of these digitally
keep on practicing, i'll be back
Ok, its like this, I wont have a camera untill friday, if I cant borrow someones
so my very much and big update of cool pictures wont be til friday... :/
3 days without updateing maybe some digitals.. or get the
scanner working... hp all-in-one < - - - - hate
TheGnoll: I'll take your advice
you get some better stuff at friday!!!! I promise you that!
so yeah, I like when you come and visit
that robot is the one from our oc session but "cooler"
great texture, looks almost natural
anyway draw from around you more, it helps me and draw whilst watching tv, its good getting glimpses of faces and stuff and sketching it down
Hey, yeah almost, or at least the head and shoulderpad design
what can I say: I draw ALOT from life, absolutly thiss week!
I havent done any updates thats because I think
im going to start a new sketchbook Cause the beginning in
this one is kinda crappy IMHO haha, you guys maybe think
im crappy now also, but I think im better than before, at least
So...a second book to come with alot more quality!
I don't think you need to start a new sketchbook, just keep this one, honestly, all you need is one sketchook, its a way to measure your progress, it allows other artist and people to view your progress so we can possibly give you tips on ways to improve. Just keep this sb Dile and stop posting so much without work, try to challenge yourself to post work everytime you post a reponse to what others say in your sb. Lets get to work
I don't understand why you should have a new SB. Progres is the most inspiring asset of these things. I would like to toss out my entire first page, also, but it belongs there. Good to hear that you are in drawing mood again
Now and then some study mood would be perfect!
takes this the right way :
looks good, try to learn the basics in anatomy, like the head MUST be in this shape, the nose is here, and the eyes are there...etc etc
now there is no structure, the heads are like a wobbly 'o'
you just place things in places where they "should" be and not exactly where they really are. A good thing i think you need to learn is to think under the surface, what's there under the gasmask, how does it rest on the face etc...
how does a skull look like, where does all the muscles go int the face, how does the eye work... now on that portrait, you have tried to copy what you see in lines, and not how the true shapes really are and convert them into lines (see the difference?)
try to draw stuff for what they are and not the label of what you draw "this is a nose = L" like the classic trick your art teacher should have put you through is to copy a image upside down... you'll draw what you see and not the symblos of "a hand", "aaah, there's the nose"....instead you just draw lines and when you turn it around you see the results of it.
just keep on working, haev fun as well as studying!
