Hi there elnaz,

Welcome aboard! Lovely first drawing you have there - would love to see more of these. What type of art training and background do you have? It would be interesting to know.

Hi Rebeccak!

you're really fast! about me: I'm 22, architectural student and besides that I've had no art training. I'm very enthusiastic tho so I hope that'll do hehehe I have thought about art classes, but unfortunately it's too expensive for me right now :P I've always loved drawing so I try to teach myself by reading and searching for tutorials and stuff.

The problem is I never really get usefull c&c so this is my big chance *yay*

Hi elnaz,

Very nice first painting! II like this style,
it looks so easy and simple
But I know that it isn't...

You are architecture student? That sounds very interesting,
because I'm intrigued in this to...

Do you think that you can tell me something about
what's going on in architecture studies?
Or maybe show some some works or blueprints of yours?

head #2

Hi again!

here's the 2nd head, pff took me a lot longer than the first one hahaha :| this one was really hard. 4-5 hrs (I think), Painter.

DÜRER, Albrecht
Head of an Apostle Looking Downward


actually it's not really architecture yet, I'm in my final (4th) year of 'Building technology'. The architect makes drawings of a house, and then I make the construction details so the drawing becomes a building. I chose this way (instead of architecture right away) because understanding the construction gives me more freedom, and so I really do recommend it. It takes longer tho... I still have 3 years to go for architecture and building environment pffff... :| (sorry for the bad english.... :| )

anyway, I don't know how it's done in Germany tho.. :O I'll see if I can find something interesting for you *search mode on*

Hey elnaz

love the Dürer!
It's one of my favourite heads from the first anatomy lessons challenge...

This looks very promising... can't wait to see more

Lovely work! Keep going - it will be great to see your progress here. Hard to believe that you have no art training, it would be amazing to see what your works looks like as you get more and more practice.

Impressive work, really like the durer painting. Lets see some more work!

Hi elnaz! Awesome work, considering you havent had any art training. You have great talent. Cross-hatching on the Durer piece is so cool!!

Hello Great sketches, but like more first one
as you said you are architectural student, Do you have there drawing lessons?

hi guys, thank you for the replies, unfortunately I'm not as fast (productive) as I'd like to be, because of work and studies :(. Anyway, I'm trying to draw as much as I can (in the train) and it's really fun!

@ Greatto

yes, but nothing about anatomy (unfortunately haha), we learned about perspective and abstract figures. The first day the teacher told us something about perspective and how it worked, then all the other lessons we went out on 'trips' to just draw buildings and shapes. I've learned to see things as shapes like blocks (?).
The thing I really hated is that there was no real feedback. The classes were big and there was 1 teacher (argh) so he didn't have the time to give us all feedback, and a lot of people just didn't care so.. well... I started disliking drawing because of it. It had become something um.. sterile?

anyway, I still have 3 more years to go, and then I'll be concentrating more on the architecture (instead of the technical stuff), there will me more lessons there, but only then they will be concentrated on designing and making drawings look pretty and presentable (I really don't know how to say this in english but I think you know what I mean).

hm. oops long story haha

@ Womball

aye aye
