Just in my head. I usually get pose ideas from magazines or photos online. Then I take the pose and go with it. Still not strong enough with anatomy to go from pose up.

I am still studying. I have only be drawing for a few months. Finally I am starting to make some progress.

Hehe. Well, what I have been doing to achieve that variety is when some style of nose, lips, ear, etc starts to become really easy for me...I start doing something else. That way I dont get myself stuck in rut. I am such a beginner right now....I know this...last thing I want is to be stale from the start!

Thanks!!!

In some ways, the similarity is good because it identifies your work. But yes, it can also be somewhat stale. You're pretty good for a beginner!

Over this past weekend I was at my old house and we discovered that a closet was leaking. I took out a large portfolio of some large drawings the kids had done and found the ones my oldest did in his high school art class. He'd never really showed me his grades, and they were attached to the drawings. I am furious - I wish I'd known that this teacher was giving him C's when his work was awesome for a beginner. Aaron hated art, so these were especially impressive. From some of the notes, it looked like the teacher had a problem with him and I would have spoken to him about it. That's probably why he didn't tell me - my kids knew how assertive I can be!

Actually, I like the mix of both. I really prefer painting with a digital medium. Its fun. You can relax and just let the creativity flow without worrying about wasting a $40 canvas. I just prefer digital. I love it. I mean, it really is a no brainer that a guy like me would end up pursuing art...with the use of a computer. :) I am taking it in stride.

I still have a long way to go, but I have time. I am enjoying the process of getting better.

Thanks! I am pretty happy with it. Lots of problems...lots. But, if nothing else I learned quite a bit about the elasticity of the human skin. The woman holding her chest. I took painstaking measures to make sure the breasts looked like the were folding over her fingers (like real breasts tend to do when held like that) and I think I achieved it. If nothing else that save the painting and I will live with it as finished. Now off to the next learning experience.

January 29th, 2004, 12:17 AM
Yeah, I couldn't create anything like that in 25 hours, let alone minutes.

Still, I dislike this painting, not for the technique, but for the building in the back. Large buildings such as this always make me feel extremely uncomfortable, for two reasons I won't go into. Even seeing them in pictures tend to trigger memories I haven't fully come to terms with yet.

The 'forbidden lesbian love' one is very sorrowful, yet has a quality of mischief to it. Also though, typical. What straight man doesn't paint lesbians? You dirty lil' site god! :lol:


Then again the only thing I know about art is that I stink at it. :rotfl:

mol
January 29th, 2004, 11:40 AM
Thanks! You guys rock. The one thing that I am most happy about in the last piece is that it shows I am still progressing. I will probably take the time to go back to that painting and 'flesh' it out a bit more if possible. Same with the 'lesbians'. ;) There are just too many anatomical errors in that one...makes me not want to look at it anymore.

I never could draw when I was a kid. I couldnt focus on it. I mean...I tried. I would copy cars out of books, etc. But, I never seemed to get any better. So I just quit it and decided it wasnt for me. Until last year I started looking at art more and more and I decided...dammit...I want to do this!

Rockprincess
May 28th, 2004, 09:52 AM
That's interesting! Maybe there's some hope for the hopelessly unartistic like myself, then! :lol:

Actually, I think spatial skills develop quite a bit in one's young adulthood. I was SERIOUSLY bad at drawing and all kinds of art as a child, and even in highschool. However, my job now requires the ability to draw smooth lines, create pleasing displays, interpret ancient enviroments and draw sketches of them etc, and I am passably good at it ;) And I learned how to chip carve, which involves a relatively high level of small motor control (although no actual artistic ability - it's just copying geometric patterns).

I created a few odd ones and came up with the quick 10 minute speedpaint of the girl with the trucker cap. What is that shit all about? And then a page of my excercises to show how I practice.

I will pick up the pencil tonight and do some anatomy stuff.

Thanks, Jenne!

30-45 minute speedpaint. Had to start over on the face a couple of times....so it slowed me down!

You have real talent. What do you intend to do with it when all is said and done? Is this purely for your enjoyment (and nothing wrong with that!), or would you like to use this in your professional work? Or do you already and I just didn't know that?

Wow so much stuff was added since I last looked in here !! Mol I hve to say you are an inspiration. The other day when I looked at this thread I was so inspired I drew my first elf face, :bigredgri Still have to wokr on the ears but hey it was a first for me and all because of you!!

One problem I have is proportions with bodies something I am trying to work on. So away I go now to finish the art section of my web page .

See ya later dude!:boquet:

Nighthawk: I wouldnt know what to teach, man! Do you think anyone would really want to do it?

DragonsChest: I am! :)

Raven EagleClaw: Well, then this update is for you! Here is a pelvic study I drew with no reference after studying it a bit. To get a sense of proportion you need to study anatomy. And I mean, you need to study. Dont just draw it. Learn it and memorize it. Its easy once you get into it. The human body is not near as mysterious as we think it is.

Pelvic study attached. More to come.

Aw, now THAT's a keeper! You best keep that for them for when they grow up--they'll want that! That's excellent work mol. My grandpa on my dad's side was a painter, and he died young of complications from lung cancer. They were so poor that he was working on "commercial" painting more than his craft, so what few pieces he did for his own enjoyment, and what he did for his children, became all the more precious once he passed.

So hang on to all this stuff, even if you feel it's not good enough or whatever!

Great stuff! Keep it coming! :steppy:

Oh, no, I wont be going there. The daily sketch group has a topic that is generated by a robot. Objective is to do a daily sketch/paint on whatever the subject is. Today it was a cow. Its cool because you sometimes have to draw/paint something you never would have otherwise.

I really like her. She has a sadness that I can see in her eyes. This was about a 45 minute job that I might continue tomorrow.

Mol, I was up at 3am this morning, with the baby, and decided to check out the sketchbooks because I have never seen them. As tired as I was, I looked at every one of your sketches and I was fascinated! You have such an artist ability and create such beautiful work. Wow! That's all I can say.
Also, do you ever draw for others either for free or for payment? I would be very interested in your services if you do! What a wonderful gift you have!

Bravo!

I've been going through this thread today now that I've had time to just sit back and enjoy...and I have to tell you I am impressed. From start to finish one can see the incredible improvements and refinements in what you are drawing (the first drawings were good but, now....OH WOW!). Professional quality, without a doubt. You've also got your own distinctive style.

Every artist likes to be critqued, I know...but, honestly....I have absolutely nothing negative or "improvement-wise" to say. Perfection!

Keep up the amazing work!

Blessings!

Iora

Some lovely work in here Mol. I like the last one of the Sad Lady very emotive. You can't say it's nice since the heart felt sorrow that goes with it but it's sertainly dramatic. _handclapp
