Skyrim pic update!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 15, 2013, 1:01 AM
I've been working hard on a new Skyrim picture, it's half done and you can check out the progress so far on my FB page:…

I might have to leave it for a little while, I've been trying hard to focus on my drawing skills as much as I can. Lately I've been struggling a little bit, sure you might see the work I've done and think it's okay but it takes me waaaaay too long to come up with it. I used to be able to get a character pose drawn up in a matter of minutes but now it's taking up to an hour or two to get it right.. So it's quite a painful process sometimes.. It's only been like these recently because I had spent so much time on the digital work that my penciling has been neglected.

I've enrolled in an Advanced Drawing class that goes for 6 weeks, I'm really looking forward to it because I've never actually been taught how to draw. It'll be nice to have some guidance and maybe learn some new tricks. I want to see if I can focus on anatomy and poses, and hopefully speed up my drawing skills to be better. If all goes right then I'll finally be able to unleash my skills with complete freedom, no more being stuck on a pic and losing motivation until it falls through..

I'll keep you all updated, now I better put pencil to paper ;)

Wow... I thought professional artists like you don't struggle at posing sometimes.... My Uncle is the one who thought me how to draw... especially posings and facial expressions.... and because of him, I've been sketching artworks for 9 years... BTW... good luck! :D

I've been struggling with that exact same problem! I've been formally taught in drawing, anatomy, etc., but I've always hated posing and it takes me forever to do. Combine that with my inbred desire to get to the finishing touches quickly, which has led to some of my basic skills and understanding have atrophied. Aside from setting time to relearn the basics, I'm planning on getting a reference mannequin, so that I can figure out posing in physical space before I attempt it on paper.

It's nice to know someone with your talent has the same problems I have (although I have a few more on top of that).
Hope you get a lot out of the course.
