Daily Sketches:

They only come out at night. (Get it, Nightmares! (laugh!)) 15 mins, didnt get back to it. =[ (Ref from the Sketch thread used).

Stained Glass Self Portrait, 60 mins. Esp interested in any CC for this one! Id like to carry it on to a "real peice" as I find it lovely!

First Love, 60ish mins. ^-^

Other things:

Character art for a friends' game character (World of Warcraft) with a Spring theme.

About the only thing I liked from a few Life Drawing classes I squeezed in. ^-^

Great to see your Anatomy Thread go up! :)

It's nice to see the work that you have done from the Sketchathon thread and your other work which I had not seen before. :)

I think that you might enormously benefit from trying the exercises which are posted to the beginning of this thread:

Beginners' Lounge (

Check out the best of the work that has been posted to the Beginners' Lounge in it's first year here, it's a great source of inspiration: :)

SPOTLIGHT: Best of Beginner's Lounge - Year 1 (

Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Cheers, :)

Thanks a lot! Ill start those later today <3

Im defintely having problems with the 'foundation' of the form. I can fake it (sorta) after redrawing for hours and covering up some things - but I dont wanna! Wanna know how to get it "right" in the sketch stage. =)

Gestures, shoulda used a non-clothed figure. Next time for sure! ^_^
2Mins. (Almost3!)
Hate the 5min, got really caught up in needless detail and borked the whole thing! =p
15 Mins!

Oh goodness, the Reference for the Gestures was Edmund Leighton: The Accolade (

Todays Sketch Topic

Betrayal, 35 mins. Ick!

Gonna do some more Gestures today (with nudes this time, really!).

Looking forward to seeing your Gesture studies ~ I think that they will really help! :) It's always best to draw figures without clothing first, and then to draw / paint the clothing on top. It's the underlying form that matters the most. :)

Sorry for lack of updates, picked up a fairly nasty cold and my scanner isnt working either ^_^'.

Hopefully itll get fixed this evening, and I can get back on the treadmill of practice! <3
