Track Your Sports

I have discovered apps about GPS tracking of sports last year. I tested few of them and I liked Endomondo. If you do sports (and If you have a smart phone or a sport watch is better), Endomondo is a free app to save and view statics for it. Garmin and Suunto Sport Watches have perfect web sites to use for it but as a community; Endomondo is the best in my opinion. Give a try and If you like add me as a friend.

Untitled Painting 004

I drew this portrait on regular paper with regular pencil and then took a shot with my camera. I used Autodesk SketchBook Pro 6 for the first time. I can say; I liked Autodesk SketchBook, it's simple, good designed and easy to use, I'm very impressed. And the final image is what I can do but I believe this software can do more. I've made this in a night, looking like unfinished, I know but I can't keep painting anything day by day lately. I see my wrongs on drawing and I don't want to keep working on it. I think this is better for me... I'm waiting any kind of critics or comments. Feel free!

Knife Painting 001

One of my old oil paintings on (50x35) canvas. It was made with knife, colors are pretty nice but I didn't like that bench, it was pretty hard to paint a detailed object.

Still Working

I'm still working on drawing. I couldn't post anything lately because of my real job and sports; they take my all energy. I sleep at 01:00 AM but it's not because of night life. I leave at work on 08:00 PM, stoped by for running or swimming and I come home about at 11:00 PM. I eat after that and it takes some time for going to bed. I read book and art/design blogs every night for at least half an hour. I watch Game Of Thrones, Californication, Walking Dead, Arrow and Parts Unknown on TV so they take some time, too. And ofcourse some human needs like shower. At the end; there is no time for drawing! Poor me, my passion is waiting for me but I need to sleep. And the day after day, time is passing.

Sometimes, I feel; I will never find time for  drawing but drawing calls me in two days. I still carry a pencil in my pocket, I draw every time I have but sadly there isn't someting worth to publish on here. I'm still trying pals, I'm not quit yet and I will never quit. This is the silence just before storm!

Canon EOS 550D Unofficial Firmware

Magic Lantern is a patch to Canon EOS Camera firmwares. It brings lots of video recording options. I started to hate Canon because of 4GB (12Min.) limited recording but Magic Lantern changes this. I've recorded 24min. video and it can keep recording a new 24min. continuously. It's realy good thing. There are more options like this, lots of them for film makers but there is one more options that I fell in love, It can show hard edges on screen with colorful dots so you can focus properly while you are recording. These options are totally shame for Canon, they have to think those options in next official firmware update. If you have a friend who have Up to Canon EOS 500D, talk about this. It's looking scary but there are amazing options behind that ugly interface and it's working perfect!

Working On Perspective

I don't draw so much lately. Somehow I'm obsessed about reading and I spend lots of time for it. I want to improve myself on perspective drawings. But I have to say that it's not easy for me. I always draw curved lines but now I need to draw straight lines. I hope it will be better soon. Here is my latest sketch. See you soon.

Easily Geotag Your Photos

Microsoft Pro Photo Tools 2 is a free software for editing metadata in photographs manually; including latitude, longitude, and other location details. There are more than that; you can also edit description, keywords, date and more. It means all about metadata. I was searching for a geotagger for a long time, I like to add geotags to photos (Offline) but I hate complicated softwares. Geaotagging is what I need and I don't want to mess with more than that. This software is exactly what I was looking for and I've found it finaly.

Winter Is Coming

I've noticed that I am much more productive in winter season. I didn't draw nearly a single drawing in the last few months. I quit painting few months ago because I had to focuse drawing but it didn't go the way like I planned. I totally forgot my plan. The summer is always hard to study something, unwanted or unexpected things finds me. At the same time, my job makes me Mr. Don't have empty time. Thanks God, winter is coming. Anyway, now I feel everything will be fine. (Actually, I started to draw again and it makes me peaceful.) I don't have any problem, my mind is clear, sketchbook and pencils are ready. BTW, this photo is taken by me an hour ago, I think it's a good scene maybe I should take a photo with a real camera, not with a phone.

Still Here

I haven't posted anything for a long time. I was so busy with my job. I did few sketches but not good for posting. I wrote about my new drawing course two months ago; I'm still studying. I met with a new drawing style and it works but looking like I've just started drawing... I guess, I'll have more free time to write and draw in winter season. So keep in touch, see you.

Pesimist Realist

I think I'm realist but realism makes me pesimist sometimes. I was at Istanbul last week. I decided to get on a boat on Sütlüce landing place. 13 Million population and I was totally alone in center of Istanbul at 5 PM. This kind of scenes makes people pesimist I guess. I felt myself alone and I'm still confused. I feel like; I'm missing something, something like life.

Sketches 013

I've been studying for the last two weeks gesture drawings (180 Sec.) by traditionally. I also signed up drawing-tutorials-online.com about two weeks ago. I think, it's the best place on internet for an online course and I don't have any option except it. Thanks god because it's really good and I believe I'll improve my drawings a lot in the future. drawing-tutorials-online.com is the only good thing about my last month. I don't know am I working right way or not but I feel there are some improvements on my drawing in two weeks... By the way; all sketches drew on a white page with graphite pencil but looking different. There is also something in drawing-tutorials-online.com about taking pictures of your drawings but I'm not ready for it yet.

Back To The Future With Android

There isn't Android Market in all Android phones. This is what I learned recently in hard way. I bought an Android phone without Android Market. I've never heard about something like this. Without market this phones are totally useless and trash. I searched for apps about few hours, it took awhile to discover there isn't a real app market and of course; it was a disaster.

Untitled Painting 003

I've made a painting after a month. I'm not so productive because of the hot weather. It makes me tired. I do different things, when it happens, I don't want to get bored. Tonight, somehow I was feeling different... By the way, I guess I like Blogger's new layout and this is the first post on new layout. It's ready for http://draft.blogger.com/ users, you might want to take a look. It's little bit confusing your mind but not something you can't handle it. I like colors and style but still don't like the way how you follow other blogs. Anyway, hope they will make an update, it's still draft version... I was making a post for my new work, I know but what can I say about it. It's just a painting, there isn't any secret or meaning. I'm waiting any kind of critics or comments. Feel free!

New Beginning

As I said on my last post I was feeling like I'll start a new life. I thought, it's a chance to make some changes in my life. One of these changes is a new beginning on my blog. Now, I have a new vision and I've made some changes on my mission.

This blog is going to be my personal blog and I'll blog everything about my life. Art is a big part of my life so you'll keep seeing my sketches, paintings, etc. of course. Just, there will be more. I'm planning to blog about artistic recommendations, my thought (as possible as I can write), masters of art, etc.

From now on I'm a blogger who wants to be a great artist. I blog about my life and my journey to becomming an artist. Hope you'll join me on this journey.

After A Long Week

After a long week, I'm finished. I feel so tired but my mind is clear. I've done so many things at home and at work that makes my mind busy after a long time so I'm tired but so happy. There are few little things more of course but not important. I will start a new week tomorrow and I feel like I'll start a new life.

I've always a notebook in my pocket. I'm a busy man with confused mind for this reason I need to note down everything. I used to use my phone but it's not helping. Actually scratch on it when it's complated is a big fun and you don't have a chance to make it on your phone. :D

I've started to use Google's +1 (Plusone) on my blog as you can see, I've read so many good things about it; maybe you know, We'll see +1's on Google search and it will make you more popular so if you have a web site or a blog you should think about it, too. And please don't hesitade to test my plusones. :)

Gesture Will Work



Looking like gesture drawing will help me to make my drawing better. I've started to feel it. I'm more comfortable while I'm drawing and I can give movement to figure easily. Also I've started to try poses with little perspective. As you can see on my sketch book drawings, I'm better now. Not perfect yet but I have a hope; gesture drawing will work!
