Actually, the top two are of my first sculpture ever: the 3rd photo is of my 2nd sculpture ever. :-)
I hadn't been to this thread in a while. Silentrage, if you are still reading, sorry for the...
Here is a drawing in charcoal of a mysterious fellow; I'm not really certain of his name, though he was a nice fellow with a very interesting face to draw.
Drawn from life in 2010
I'm drawn to the atmospheric haze; I like the mystery.

JeffX99 and Ceteri are spot on.
My advice would be to concentrate on edge control: vary the quality of your edges.
Sharp edges come forward and draw the viewer's attention: soft edges recede. ...
This is a very nice still life.
I particularly like the apple; it is very well painted. Good job!
The part about the bottle being skewed, I think that the main problem is the...
I think that is an improvement!
The softening of the outline and the background texture reduces the clutter and maintains the focus on the face and figure.
I just realized that the...
Your piece is very dramatic, and strikes me as particularly strong in the thumbnail.
I like the idea of a woman in a gas mask, though, unless you are going to go through some sort of...
I saw on the previous page that you play tin whistle as well. Is that a Generation D? Judging from the head, it looks like one. My current favorite tin whistle is my Generation D that I tweaked to...
If aren't yet on Google +, I just invited you.
The above comments are instructive and informative, and you would do well to listen to them.
My own 2 cents.
Work from life, draw from life. And work in monochrome (ie black and white, brown...
The idea of a "fundamentals" sub-forum almost appeals to me, except this forum suffers from too much "feature creep" as it is; too many sub-forums, to many flashy graphics and animated gifs, too many...

Yes they are from life.
Except the figure which is a mix of master study, anatomical study, and imagination.
the cruelty of victory is the pinnacle of life's jubilation
pastel on paper
intended as a master study, anatomical study, and imaginary composition.
Last night I gazed upon a sky,
As day was veiled by mist and shade;
I knew the dream was just a lie,
And watched the beautiful vision fade.
In youth we dreamed the world was ours,
And a single...
Although I agree with Jeffx99 about using the best materials you can find, but realistically, most of your first paintings are not gonna rise above the level of studies.
Therefore, I am of the...

If they are still offering Stephen Perkins's Ecorche class as an online class, take it.
Only take it if Stephen Perkins is the teacher; he's the only one that would be worth the money.
They say the devil is in the details, and I especially like your handling of the details from the chain mail armor, to the design on the boat.
I find it hard to believe that you...
I was just about to post that Bouguereau painting.
Wonderful painting, and a nice departure from Bouguereau's usual subject of charming peasant girls.
This is a great thread....
Nice drawing Jaffx99.
Clearly, you know how to use graphite; I have never quite figured graphite out. And in only 45 minutes? My hat's off to your display of skill.
I like to think of my...
Good answers everyone.
Nice to see all the careful thought and reflection that went into our avatars.
So much depth.
Stragan, this is awesome!
Like glancing through the window into the soul of an artiste...
Honestly, this made my day. :-)
