Next are some value buildings studies from when I was at home, sick. Also, there's a video of me painting the value studies. It has been sped up about six times. The actual time it took to make those was about an hour and ten-twenty minutes. I'm slow as hell, it would seem:)

Later on in the week we can also make studies of cars and trains, and trams. Maybe planes too. Sooo yeah, go for it.
Posting is a bit rare lately, but I hope things'll pick up. Have a nice evening all:)

Now, that that is over with, on to the weekend studies! The topic is arms and legs. This means hands and feet included. So, make as many as you can, and don't forget about the value studies. Go have fun now!
P.S. Also, Mortleg and Calader are also admins now. Just so you know.
Here are the feet I promised. They are 11 because 1-feet are hard; 2-there is less feet sketches in my anatomy books, 3-I like beer.
That said, i had a blast doing them, especially the last 3. The reference for them was Bammes's Der Nackte Mensch and it was very challenging and rewarding to try and apply what I learned from Bridgman's book about the dynamics of shapes to the solid and photorealistic Bammes reference. :)

some post-lunch break hands. Plan to add 10 more and do as many feet in the evening.
I am still trying to find a quick technique for those studies, because the flat line thing is really time-consuming. I think i will do all the rest with the opacity-sensitive round brush, it allows me to block in the volumes before i define the shapes. Did the last 3 this way and imo they look best and have a better structure than the others before them.
added 6 more sketches rounding them up to 20. Now to do as much feet.

This week is anatomy week again and I was thinking of doing hands and feet studies again. At the very least not all of us managed to do them last time. Also, practise makes perfect. Soooo... on to the studies!
The plan is more or less to do a repetition of the first week of Sketchness. We make hands and feet studies today and tomorrow, arm studies tomorrow and the day after and finish it off with leg studies at Friday and Saturday morning. Then the weekend topic will be "more of the same". And, as always, value studies are encouraged. Too bad only Angelo makes those. But his are awesome, so no worries.
Have fun now:)

Here is just a couple of studies, just realized its so much easier to do those things using the pencil tool instead of the brush tool... Or maybe its the same ! Who knows?!
P.S. Gonna post my residential buildings studies tonight.
Here's my entry for the night. I'll try to catch up with the value studies and whatever I missed from the week on the weekend. What I just notice is that I ended doing more exteriors again, doing some more interiors in the future won't hurt I think.

Here's my not so impressive attempt to catch up with the shops, done on my laptop with the tablet on my lap in WarPaint(Open Canvas 1.1) something I'm totally not used to. But enough complains, hope to come up with my value study at some point tomorrow. Or is it today already?

We'll be doing different types of buildings each day. So, to begin we'll draw stores. All kinds of stores you can think of- small ones, big ones, parts of ones, high-tech ones, clothing stores, sports stores and so on.
Sooo... you know- make as many as possible and try to include a few value studies.

Due to me not posting my facial features studies, Mortleg not posting his facial features studies, Calader not posting his facial features studies, and SoulSurvivor not posting... at all, I've decided to keep the facial features topic till Friday. Then, Friday till Saturday we'll be drawing faces. And then, Saturday and Sunday, we'll be drawing complete figures. With faces and fingers... and toes. The goal is to make them detailed and also practice values. Sooo... we'll be making less studies, but we'll take longer on each of them.
I was also thinking that maybe we should start making some our daily studies value studies. Sssooo... what do you guys think?
Here's my late late night entry for architecture. Decided to conceptrate on various street corners and crossroads. I'll try to catch up at least partialy with the old topicks and get up to speed with you guys.

Here are my torso studies from today. Really scribbly an' stuff, but I like how they turned out. Really helps to think of the torso as a series of overlapping ovoids... with muscles on top. And skin. And then draw squiggly lines.

I fail at weekend updating... But anyway, here's the plan for the week. Today's topic is torso studies. Then we'll make facial features studies (ears included), then we'll move on to whole faces, and then we'll either make studies of people in general (concentrating on whichever parts we wish), or we'll keep the usual weekend routine and make more of the studies we did during the week.
So, today's topic- torso studies. No matter if they're male or female, chubby or skinny and so on. Soo... keep 'em simple, make as much as possible.

The plan is to finish this week off as a kind of "Introduction to perspective drawing". Afterwards, we'll focus on each of the individual topics we've gone through this week, so we're probably gonna be doing a lot of building studies (different styles, different environments, etc.), then a lot of machinery studies and so on.
Any thoughts on the matter are appreciated. As you have probably figured out by now- the schedule isn't set in stone so feel free to suggest stuff, disagree with stuff and so on.

Here's some more from me. I'll maybe draw some more after work, but wouldn't really bet on it. I'm happy with some parts of those. Others really bug me, but they were fun to do. Hoping that if I do a thousand of those, I'll get really awesome. Or at least learn how to draw a square. Or reveal the secret of immortality... Who knows?
Anyway... It seems we'll be announcing the topics in the evenings soooo... next topic comming in the evening. But it'll probably be architecture and buildings.
And here's some from me. Decided to start small with some industrial tools and ellements. Pretty misserable first attempt, with a couple of nicer hits. Expect more soon.
Have fun now:)
