Hey, the landscape already looks better but i'm not sure if you're really going for that cartoony style? Great sketchbook by the way!

Thanks! I'm not really going for anything with the landscape, it's just an experiment with digital painting, mostly for fun until I really start to learn to paint. I've been working on it since November, here's what it looked like back then:

Anyway, today I tried "mannequinization"
Figure_05.jpg

These are from the examples in Stan Prokopenko's video series, I just paused and worked a little ahead of the video then watched how he did it, paying close attention to why he drew what he drew, and fixing any mistakes I noticed in mine, I repeated the process until it was finished.

Today I applied what I learned from the "mannequinization" technique to a wooden duck:

I'm starting to see the planes of the object more easily.

Another "mannequinization" from Proko's example video:

And I also felt like drawing sword concepts for some reason:

Lovely gestures! Maybe try varying it with 5 minute gestures as well? Switching between 30 - 60 seconds and 5 minutes seems to help me a lot!

Wow TSM, some serious learning going on here! Nice and keep going, can definitely see improvement. You also have some sweet ideas early on with cool narratives which in my opinion is the hardest thing to do :D

Thanks Ernie! One of those is a five minute gesture :P I just never know what to do with that much time, and end up either rushing or over-doing it. Really the quick ones are the only ones where I actually feel the gesture, the longer ones I always seem to focus on the contour too much.

And thanks GoggleFace! I'm trying. And I'm glad you like my drawings :D , I haven't been able to do much this week because study really kills creativity :lol:

Got some epic gesture sketches going on here, all of these are by watching proko's free videos or you use more mediums such as anatomy books? *curious*

@ ErnieTheMighty: Gotta know how to draw butts. :lol:

@brianhermelijn:Thanks! Yes, I'm learning from Proko's free videos, and I mostly use poses from "The Croquis Cafe" by "onairvideo" on YouTube.

And here is another figure:

I'm not entirely certain, but I think the left leg (from viewer's perspective) is slightly too small? Someone may need to back me up on this, as my anatomy is shocking but I'm just telling you what I think hahaha!
You've improved alot though so keep up the practice!

Thanks fleur, I think your right about the leg there is something off about it, I have trouble with fully bent limbs like that, can't really figure them out yet.

Here's another one:

Very nice structure and pose that last one, you seem to have been doing poses and anatomy for quite some time now?

Thanks! I've been doing gesture drawings for about 2.5 months now, but only started making more structured figures last week. I haven't really started studying anatomy yet, but I have flipped through "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" a few times.

And here's another figure:

Great figure studies.
I´m onto the same trail for the following days.

Thanks Alexeji!

Today's stuff:
Sketchbook_04 012.jpg
Sketchbook_04 013.jpg

I'm really starting to like sketching with a pen, it's so much cleaner looking, though I can't fix mistakes as easily (like the bottom figure on the second page) :P And I'm still trying to figure out the skull, the jaw and cheek bones in particular.
