Status update?  Is this like Facebook?  Do I just post random 'life' things here, or something significant for the sake of humanity?!

Huh? Another update?

Wakes up from nap (eyes still fuzzy and adjusting to the light), goes onto dA, and... What?!

New update?

Drawing help

Sun Oct 12, 2014, 10:30 PM


On tumblr I follow the illustrator Leslie Hung (milkmanner) and she does amazing fluid drawings. Her drawings of women especially look so relaxed and sensual and there is so much weight and dimension to the characters. They're really amazing. 

I analysed my own style after that and noticed that my characters always look stiff and tense as though they're always posing as opposed to actually interacting with their environment. 

I feel as though I need to learn about the center of gravity again for starters. However, does anyone have any tips on how I can improve my art to make the characters look more natural besides that?

Observational Drawing - Nude man by rocket-child
Observational Drawing - Nude man
Used an online photo for reference, but forgot who the artist was (soz).
Blue and orange colour pencils on A1 sized paper.  

I think this is the most detailed realistic drawing i've ever done.  Took about 16 hours in total, so yeah, exhausting.

Stairway to Heaven

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all is one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
-Led Zeppelin
