Hello My name is Thomas
I started drawing several months ago, recently i decided that i wanna get to a professional level.
Its a long and hard way. so i practice a lot.Im focusig on the foundations atm.
I will post some of my current training exercises in the near future.
If you comment/critique on my drawings iŽll do so vice versa.
Thanx in Advance!
I will start out with some life drawings.
The torso studies are done with a nude drawing art book three months ago. i did not gain much of that!
Some sketches i did using the mannequin.For me, a better approach to the figure. but i only wanted an introduction before
going back do training cubes.(doing something else was nice;)

Small Update that ill try to keep up weekly.
Please Feel Free to Comment!!!!
First i wanted to submit part of my Daily training regarding line shape and form.
If you like this or want to try and want info just ask.
This is the Example For ellipses. The First one is bevore the second one after i have done roughly 100 pages of ellipses. its not Solid but it gets better.
This May be tedious but effective.
Next are some Exercises ive mixed together(no credit at all) thanx to Peter Han and This Guy
Had no Internet for a few days
so this update comes a bit late.
I wanted to throw more concept stuff in here bit by bit.
we got to portrait drawing at my art class so i decidet to look closer at the human head, eventually creating my own Formula
to draw it from imagination
Self Portrait Done with a mirror. The eyes are waaaay too huge... ill give it a new try soon...
Discovering the Design of the Human Skull
Drawing from imagination... need more Practice!!!!

My first Gesture Sketches
I dunno if im doing it right i am just trying to capture the movement and stay away from contours.
but i think i need to get even more gesture"ly"??
Advice is welcome!
I forgot two of them last Week
After One Week of Exercise... more Gesture + Dissection + starting to add Simple Forms(Volumes)
Ive Keept them about 2 to 5 min, some of them are done by imagination.
I Drew them pretty much in the Order I uploaded
Hybrid shapes after my Gesture Exercises
Building my General Approach to Figure Drawing
Combining the Concetpts of Gesture With Simple Forms From Imagination.
No Reference at all!
When i Played around i created This from Imagination.Again no Reference.
Never Drew a Animal b4.Also First time i used Charcoal. Its far from good, but further from really really bad, also im proud of my progress and i had Fun!
if you would show me this a year ago and said thats your drawing in one year, i would have condemned you completely Nuts.
Dont Be Shy Leave A Comment Here And Then.

hey white worlb. thank you for visiting my sb, and the kind words.
goood, hard work from you, and starting with the fundamentals. better then I ever did.
ah, but shall I go ahead and tell you the secret to good drawing?
its simple, really. you gotto understand what you draw. the spatial relationship. the distances, in the real world and how that translates to paper.
sounds simple huh? well, it's not.
you have to understand how every line and shape travels through space before you draw it.
I tried to show you what I mean with those basic shapes you did. I'm hardly that great at this, and you use pretty complex shapes already.
ah, hope this helps and see you around I hope!
Thank you for your Comment!So Fast!
Yea im pretty deep into fundamental stuff...and its hard, drawing is Hard, thats why i love it.
I will go and Try More Box Shapes to simplify and deepen my understanding of spacial relation.
iŽve been Drawing Boxes Daily for 2 months now, i wanted to combine them with Spheres in a Twisting motion.The whole Idea was to get my general approach to drawing.
First Gesture (or Motion), then Shape (or Form) next would be light and shadow.
I think they got a little better as i progressed (ive uploaded in the order i drew them) but yea this is pretty bad. I also Turned the Paper several times.
The thing you talk about with the feeling... the hardest thing is to balance myself not giving too much attention to one thing, but enough so i dont "fade away". Its so much, and if i think to hard i forget the overall Form.
Differing between 2d and 3d thinking is also an issue.
Its like Acrobatics with the Brain. Brainobatics.
Well Thanks again for your input. When you stop by again, my biggest concern are the gestures.i do bout 20 of them per day but dunno if i am doing them right.
hah. you got big plans I see. that's good. I feel ya with the balancing. still get into trouble measuring/drawing in direction/ using line flow... and that's just from life. with imagination I'm usually too busy constructing to think of any of those.
on gestures, I'd start with these
then when you think you've got it, expand in this direction.
or you can just follow this guy's presentations. they're pretty nice.
yea the Big Masterplan...i still feel sometimes like im too old with my 27.But that self doubt will vanish over time i think.
First of I wanna get Education, surround myself with people who wanna do this as well.
then i know im on the Right Track since iŽm already onto Proko Im also going to buy the Vilppu Drawing manual.
there is so much info out there sometimes you get confused.
Again Thanks For your suggestions..
Well... New Year... didnt do sh... or at least not much in the last days
Now Less Talk more Draw...
I need to think even more about the form when im drawing aswell as how forms move. Just What Ahess Suggested!
I thought i know a bit of Anatomy, but i dont.
I know the Names for the Structure of the Human Body(due to my Education), but still that gives me no info about how
the shapes lock into each other and how they turn.
I need to throw some Basic Anatomy in there to get a better Grasp of what i am Actually Drawing.
So my Next updates will be about Basic anatomy.
Here i tried to analyze the left pose by drawing a similar one next to it. It really lost its Movement.
I tried to Focus on the Shoulder and show how its belt wrappes around.
Update. I used Reference this time(of course its Anatomy) but i altered the Angle(looked at front and side view and draw the 3/4 and so on...)
I used the images really as reference. No Copy
Its not that i think its bad to copy. but IMHO its bad to just copy without grasping the general Concept of how it is done.
Starting Anatomy with the neck shoulder and a general understanding of the Head. next will be the spine and the Pelvis
nearly half of my studies as well as some poses cant be submitted cause they are simply drawn to lightly and donŽt show up on the scanner.
I think this is very good because i used to PRESS like it was needed to engrave the paper.
in near future i will convert wo wacom Tablet so that issue should be solved by it self.
this one(left corner) is from da vinci this time i did not alter the angle an just looked at how he described the Neck.
3. Rythm,Wrapping and Asymetry
Fast sketch of Mirana.Ill start to make some concepts for cosmetic items. Just for Practice and fun iŽll also start modeling them in Blender
and submit them when they are done (or i get stuck in the Process).
I made some Thumbnails of a Kraken. I will compose more and take this one to Painting Stage.
My First Painting i did it Last October. First Time Acrylics the last time i painted i was 10(Watercolor) and I hated it.This time I had much fun. but was also disappointed.I could not get what i knew into my Painting.
after i finished it i immediately started a new one which i will submit next week.
Unable to Post ATM
after beeing sick about 2 weeks in Jan my scanner now has decidet to give up his duty.
Im looking for a solution and will upload everything from last month when i find it.
Sorry to hear about your scanner and you being sick :/
I would advice you to draw as much from life as possible. It teaches you much
Some Problems solve themself...
Thanks for the advice. I intent to... The reason for me skippin around a bit is...
i see drawing painting like a big puzzle, so what do you do first.
Pour all peaces onto the ground and get yourself an overview.
Thats what i did.
I will start a new schedule soon.Focusing contour line drawing and gesture.
These will all be live drawings.
also in march i will go on a Paiting journey through germany.
I promised to upload mz second painting but its too big to be scanned i will make a photo next dayz.
Now here some of the stuff i made in the last month...
Starting with some sketches from imagination
going on with some poses and a little anatomy! I was Frustrated!
More Poses a little Better... *some of them are Frazettas!
I had to think more basic!to really understand
