at first i should say if you look for something interesting, you are in the wrong place!
but if you are looking for something to laugh and love yourself and thanks god for what you are take a look at here
about myself: was a drawer at very young ages but leave it and become a 3d **** and work for 3d industry for years but then feel sad about that and want to come back and draw again
so totally i`m newbie here but will try my best to become a bit better
for now will focus more on figures but will try other aspects as well
(After 5 years update on Page 2)

so will start with these
the last one is after Arquer Buigas (what the hell!)
and personally like the second one for some reason
gestures come from posemaniacs and take about 5-10 mins each one
thanks for leaving a reply in my sketchbook. One thing I noticed about your stuff; it looks like youre only using digital media, no?
One thing that I've learned (and been told) is that you learn faster using traditional media (unless maybe if youre using a cintiq tablet, havent tried one myself though). So grab a pen or a pencil, but no rubber!, and good luck
@ Pijus: Thanks for support, so here are more dirty ones by pencil that will show I'm newbie totally
@Rene: Thanks so much for advice, agrre with you, I'm using Intus3 from wacom, but time to time use traditional also, as you said should focus more on traditional , these were my first digital painting and drawings, as i read your post decide to use my pencil again
here is the result ( terrible? i know that already )

it seems size of pictures are a bit out of sync, sorry for that
awesome anatomy studies!!!!....keep up the good work, would love to c ur figure drawings fleshed out as u get more n more comfortable with anatomy...so cool!!!!
"@ Pijus: Thanks for support, so here are more dirty ones by pencil that will show I'm newbie totally" - yeah right, If thats a newbie drawings, I wonder how ur drawings will look like when ull be pro. Great studies man. I like the environment. Keep doing those. And dont call ur self a noob hehe.
And one last thing: those last anatomy studie pictures looks huge, upload a bit smaller next time (or dont, if thats just me and my monitor).
@emptyvessel: Thanks! these kind words from a talented artist like you make be a lot happy, will try my best to be a little better
@Pijus: tanks but I'm newbie , sorry about size of those, a little out of sync, try to fix that
looking for your critique
here are some more gestures and some super fast anatomy practice( sorry for quality)
and the last one is just a wip in mudbox and i would finish it by time with your help
Cool drawings alshak, dont be so hard on yourself! the figures are good just stop drawing on your tablet
Thanks Rene for support, my studies are in painless low quality but as i finish the book once, will practice it one more time with better quality
these days I'm so lazy and a bit busy with university exam
some more ...
and the sculpt progress
Very nice anatomy studies
Would be nice to see a highly finished piece though
That 3d model is looking great, same with the drawings, keep going mate!
good 3d work there, just wondering if your going to texture it ? your studies look really good and you are very diligent with them it can be hard to keep it up
I have to agree with MnM i wold love to see a finished piece.
@MnM: thanks dude, still don't feel ready for that but will try sometime later
@Rene: thanks but don't accept this from you Rene! your studies are at least 2x better than mine and you don't have any crits on my studies?! common rene
@pijus: thanks dear friend, but crits please and thanks again for calling me like that
@Bagg: Thanks, yes it is a little hard but when i look at sketchbook of active friends like you it would be much more easy, the sculpture is more for study but who know,may texture it someday but i promise when it is finished show a beauty render
here is some more gestures and eye studies and eye update on sculpture

Thanks Gabriel, you are right, i have a couple of 30 sec but from when started this SB didn't do that but will do it again, thanks for advice
here another little update and an ear update on sculpture
nose studies are really nice and sculpture is getting really good now
I think the enviroment needs some work though , hard to say if its right or not without the photo hehe. I posted this advice for gabriel-b about environment studies so it might help you too: "one thing that really helped me was this: "paint what you see not what you think you see"... I know it might sound stupid and obvious but it helped me. reading up on some colour theorey might help, and when youre doing these studies dont worry too much about getting the shapes and that accurate just focus on your colour and value. Another useful trick is when youre using the colour picker (not sure if its the same in painter as it is in ps...im using ps) first look at the values and try and get that right by eye and then trace across to the pick the right saturation/colour.
Oh, and at the end it really helps to use the colour picker on the photo and then on your study to compare your choice and what the really colour is, that way you correct yourself and you learn faster. as opposed to just leaving it at the end and starting a new one instead of evaluating how you did."
Another tip for when youre drawing grass or any kind of foliage, block in the darkest value/colour that the grass has with the grass brush or any brush if you want and then go over with the lighter colour. Working from dark to light actually works well for painting alot of things.
Dont give up
@Pijus: Thanks dude, good for you
@Rene: wow, very good advices, will try them tomorrow thanks a lot
another lazy update
study and a few detail on sculpt
yo alshak, thx for the words, really like your studies, keep on working those 3d face, they're coming along nicely... cheers
s i m o n
@BigfooTrooper: Thanks dude, you are right ,will work on it
@bouroune:thanks, will do that, been done dozen of them but this one is going a better way
@Rustveld: thank you
here is another update
the speedy really sucks but have nothing else to upload
Holy George Bridgman, that is a lot of studies!
Thanks for checking out my sketchbook. Your 3D sculptures are looking really great. I get the gist that you are focusing on structure and that is great, but try not to let that stiffen up your drawings too much. My method is to keep the rough gesture very loose, then I add the structure (which will inevitably stiffen up the drawing a bit) and then put the anatomy on which will bring back the rhythm.
An absolutely amazing book for Rhythm study is Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators by Mike Mattesi. I'd highly recommend checking it out, I think it can be a big help. Good luck!

WoW, thanks Sir Cam
very useful comment, you are absolutely correct, will practice on that and thanks for the book, have got some Burne Hogarth already and this book should be nice too! thanks again, it would be awesome if you leave useful comments again hear if you have time, thanks again
here an update of Bridgman and a 3d hand wip that working for a contest at luxology
