Bargue plate 1-1
Program: sketchbook pro/wacom intuos pen and touch
Took me around 2-3 hours. I know its really sad but at the end it went a lot faster. I was thinking too much the first few eyes which ended up in erasing the whole thing a dozen times. Gonne be doing more of these in the future.

Well, you are definitely getting your dexterity to level up by doing those line exercises. Those have helped me a ton too. I'm liking what I'm seeing. Keep it up!

I really like your eyes and your 2pt perspective squares. Do you follow a certain programme, or book, or where do you find these exercises?

You can find most of the exercises here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ArtFundamentals

I do not follow that "course" though. For now the plan is
1. Finish as much bargue plates as I can (https://picasaweb.google.com/1046208224 ... directlink)
2. Start with basic perspective (waiting for Scott Robertsons how to draw book to arrive)
3. Other basic fundamentals (form, shapes, volume, light/shading and basic rendering)

dunno if this is a good combination might revise everyting in 2016 as for this stage I dont think it matters much since im a complete beginner so everything I do will get me better to some degree.

Some line"art". Lets call it WIP. Used a reference pic from one of the FZD students but added my own stuff to it. Critique always welcome.

Hey thats actually quite nice, you have a good 3 dimensional thinking I guess (talking like I'd know what I talk about) :D No but nice! You could even try to make it bigger, with big stones, walls, maybe even a tore in the ground? Just a suggestion ^^

Took me a while to get back into drawing had to finish my paper for school but on a side note it got accepted by a good journal so I published for the first time :D.

Anyhow this year I really want to push the bargue plates along with scott robertsons book "how to draw".

The lineart for the weekly challenge. A lot wrong with it. Couldnt figure out the shoes in the correct way and dont even start about the hands. Anyhow will start colloring it now for my submission never done that before so thats gonna be fun.

If anyone has some tips or critique dont hold back I got a thick skin!
