This is a good example of something I need to do more of, and that's anatomy studies. I just don't have the patience for this kind of drawing. You are definetley going down the right path with these drawings, it will be great to see how you progress through the months.
Nice stuff, i like you work on anatomy.
I would say build up more line confidence, a lot of these are quite fluffy. Try working with a pen to build up confidence.
Some longer studies would also be good for getting a better grasp of form.
Keep going, you are completely on the right track, much more than me.
Great start on your sketchbook. Especially liked the eyes in the centrum of the last pic.
Keep on studying, it will pay off greatly later on.
Great stuff man- Nice start!
Thanks for the boost of confidence.... I'm going to go out now and sketch some people right now! ... Well, maybe not right now, but soon! Thanks!
Long Live RED!
The lightsource is wrong on the guy holding the pole with the big stomach, the shadow's on his shoulder somehow but the light's coming from above right. On 11:05 today this occurs again on the picture of the hand holding a book(?), the light's coming from above right but then the index finger is lighted differently than the others. Your also making the reflected light too bright which is seen on the pepper from Today 2:03. To give your lines more purpose they've got to have specific meaning: Depends on the person, but to me the first thing line represents is contour. I mean 3 dimensional contour, all those lines are moving in 3D within the picture plane imaginarily touching specific points on the form of the object. Having said that there's tons of stuff I dig in here: The charcoal and chalk on colored paper, conte on black paper from life, mass drawings, you don't repeat or reuse poses(which is rare as hell). Your going in the right direction with this here, I can't wait to see where this goes in a few months.
hey armando, I really appreciate the critique, this is the nectar of the artist, the life blood of our breed. I'd like to clarify that I didn't render the rope, so the shadow is going to be all screwy without that visual reference. That fat guy drawing is all screwy anway, the head is too big and so are the hands. I agree with you about the reflected light, it should be duller, but, if i remember correctly, i had the light source about 1 foot away from the damn thing. You're right about the pointless construction lines, I oughta make sure my lines have delibrate intent. Once again, thanks man, hope to see you back in here.
Thought I'd try my hand at some sort of character...
I really like the hands. The line figure dude is pretty awesome too. It has a comic book feel to it and I am a sucker for comic books. And I am sorry I have to say this but the figure playing the guitar looks like he has a really big penis (I am sorry). There has been a marked improvement since you first started posting, and incredible for the first drawings I saw.
Hey Fat Kid! Really nice work on this sketchbook, I love the way you make portraits, really sensitive and full of life. Pen and charcoal work are my favorites. You're efforts reminds me I won't be good until I start studying anatomy like you do. Keep up the good work and thanks for posting in my sketchbook.
Hey guys, I hate travelling, can't post, no good materials....
Groover: That's definitely some sound advice, i worked on it in this post, actually....and thanks for the compliments, come bak often, i need as much help as you can give me!
Cobi: thanks, I'll absolutely post a lot, check out mentler's thread too, you'll learn stuff there too....and for even more inspiration, check out mindcandyman's thread, he definitely can make you want to draw....come back, I appreciate the support, its my biggest motivation...
Valengar: what figure playing the guitar? and thanks, i've been working hard over these weeks, how's school and everything else?
[jbfilion]: hey, I'll posting in your sketchbook as long you keep posting....thaks for the kind words..
from life, damn bus layovers....
Some more arm studies should be useful. Keep an eye on proportion, and anatomy. Unfortunatly your arms are probably all flabby and not buff like mine, so it won't be as simple as looking in the mirror for reference. Ha Ha
Interesting gestures, facial expressions
Hey, i wish it was easier to keep this thing daily....
Armando: I guess I should work out more, studies coming up when i get my normal sketchbook back...
Fellah: Thanks! i really appreciate the encouragement...
Uncle_Enzo: thanks for stopping by, come back soon!!
my drawing teacher collected our assigned daily sketchbook, so i only have a small drawing during physics....
Sorry, I've missed posting for the last two days. Your stuff is getting better. Doug is right about the guitarist? (the stickish figure sitting on a chair) I like the red stuff. What is that done in? The only thing that I can see is the p60 hand--looks a little screwy. Hands are something that I think you need to spend more time on--you almost seem to be avoiding them...
Hey, I like your stuff, and I'm glad that you're concentrating on the human figure, as it is definently one of the most intriguing subjects that one can find. However, I think that you should take a few steps back as you draw. This will allow you to check yourself and make sure the drawing looks good and correct as a whole. Also try blocking off certain areas of the drawing with your hand to see if it improves the look of the rest of the drawing, and work on the area that is flawed. Constantly search for flaws and rework those areas, then get a fresh look by taking a step back. Master each one of your drawings, and look for quality rather than quantity. I hope that this advice will help you on some level, and I need to work on these same aspects of my art as well, so i hope I am not too much of a hypocrit. good luck!
Some neat studies there, good to see you still drawing while travelling. We started at the same time and you will be nearly on page 3 while I'm still stuck on page one. At this rate, you are going to be champion of the world.
hey guys, nother small update, just to prove I'm working....
Sedig: ya got me...i do like to avoid hands...I'm decent when they aren't attached to the body, but when I have to deal with their connection, I tend to shy away....I actually have been working on it, whether or not you can tell....anyhow...That red stuff is sanguine conte, the stuff that you don't know what it is...Ask Mr. Roddy about it, or Mr. Nesti, they'll hook you up...
Mr. Blonde: Turns out we're practically the same age, my birthday is 3 days after yours, so I'll keep your seniority in mind....Your advice is very sound, it had never occured to me to use my hand to see individual parts...pending your advice, I'll work more on each drawing as opposed to leaving minor flaws.....hopefully I can strive for your excellence...thanks for dropping by...
Nutter: Hey man, thanks for coming back time and time again....I intend to get good, you're definitely one of the guys I look to for inspiration, so get to it!!
oil, 2 hours...
Over all I think the oil painting looks good, it's got a little bit of caricature going on. The space between the eyebrows looks a little wide, like the far eye brow isn't where it should be. Anyway, it's good to see you working on some more in depth studies. I hope you stick around this site, I'm getting lots of ideas just by reading the stuff you leave in other people's books.

Hey man. Wanted to say thanks again for the comments. You have a great thread going here yourself. I appreciate how much anatomy you're drawing. Its something I need to start doing a lot more of. I've been reading gold finger and loomis. Plus, I have a life drawing session thursday and saturday I'm going to start attending.
Keep up the good work man, you can see your improvement just by scrolling.
I dunno, this stuff doesn't hit me as well as some of your previous work. I do love that last one, but the pencil drawings just before it don't seem to be in your normal vent. That last pencil guys head seems a tad over-large. Still, very nice work, and you are getting better with some things. I know I am the last person that should probably comment on anatomy (seeing as how mine isn't great in my work) but you seem to have a really nice fluid way with your form. Best of luck, I'll check in (thanks for stopping by my s.b.).
Wow, you are burning up the pencils like there's no tomorrow.. But I wonder if drawing at this speed stops you from digesting what you learn.. Dont get me wrong.. Mileage matters, but its like reading.. if you read too fast you'll be done with two chapters and suddenly realize you have forgotten most of chapter 1...
I'd slow down a bit, spend more time on the drawings. Other than that.. great job.
Fricken awesome oil painting!
