Subject title: RAC00NIE's sketches and stuff (probably some NSFW)

Koźlik - Thanks! The water effect was quite hard to pull off.
behxmot - Thank you! Well, it was the last of the four pieces, so I had the most experience.
everfae - Thanks! It took me about 25 hours. It was on A4 format paper, so it wasn't that big.
Weaver - Thank you! It's the first time I painted water and it looked like water. I'm not quite sure how I pulled that off :)
So today I drew some hands in pen. Trying to memorize how they look. Not going for realism, just general shapes :)

I really like the form and power in the vast majority of those hands o' yours! (and bro your general knowledge of color and form is gosh darn amazing in your paintings).

Pixogon - Thanks!
Weaver - Thank you!
Steeliebob - Thanks! Yeah, hands are hard. My goal is to be able to draw them from memory :)

Beautiful hand studies.
How much time do you put on each one?... on each hand I mean.
Our learning path never ends... Keep practicing.

Xiphor - Thanks! I'll try :)
behxmot - Thank you :)
HopeMetal - Well, it's still not enough ;)
Fergato - Thank you! I guess each had took 2-3 minutes :)
So today I was cleaning my room and found some old drawings that I would like to share. This one here is glass studies from life on black A3 paper, sone with a white pencil. I did it in art school 2-3 years ago (I assume). Give me your opinion about these please :)

Your painting ability is really high, what medium where you using?
If you always do what you've always done, you will always get what you've always got

I don't remember it was so long ago. But maybe I did for the simplest forms like spheres etc...

Today I tried a drawabox exercise. It turned out... okay. Tell me what you think about it :)

Damn those hands are killer!! Whats your process with then?
and you use gouache? How long did it take you to get that skilled? And how did you start off with gouache? I've just started with gouache having little to know painting experience and I'm unsure of where to start and how to build those skills :)

Thanks! I drew these hands with pen, it took about 1-2 minutes each. I drew them with no pencil guidelines- I just drew them just with pen. I used a reference pack you can find here:https://www.deviantart.com/art/50-Hand-Challenge-Pack-244-Hand-References-348847368
And as for the painting with gouache I painted with gouache for about 2 years (I was about 9 years old). I painted mostly still lifes. Then I stopped and went over to watercolor, acrylics and digital painting. I painted still lifes and imaginary stuff + stuff from photos.I did that for 5 years. I think you don't necessarily need to paint with gouache to get better at painting with gouache- I think that painting with any medium gets you better at painting with gouache (I did these pieces after a 5 year break from gouache (my previous gouache works looked horrible, I'm sure :D)). I think that I got better at gouache after painting a bit with different mediums from reference (photos or life). I think that the best way to start is to paint still lifes with gouache (or even practice values with pencil).
Well, just don't worry if your stuff looks bad at the start, I'm sure you'll get better quickly if you practice often (I didn't practice that often and look where I'm now :D). Good luck on your artistic journey, everfae!

Straight with pen!! No sketches! Wow, even if i went straight in with men it'll be a scribbly mess. I admire your confidence to go straight in like that :)

That sounds like a really good range of practice, no wonder you do so well. I find drawing / painting still lifes mega boring, but I'll have a go sometime it could only be beneficial. Thank you!

Those hand studies look slick. Kind of reminds me of Aeon flux.

geryes - Thanks! I don't know what's Aeon flux though :?

So I've been working on the Einstein portrait. I'm slow... I probably procrastinate too much :D

Now the moustache!
I'm envious of your environmental work, all these pieces look very solid. You seem to have a lot of patience for the details.
