If you are new to capturing likenesses, you are dealing with a bunch of things at once: facial anatomy, individual expression, and lighting. Also, I've noticed that your drawing resembles the face...

Thanks so much for the name change!
I'm hoping to get my forum name changed from AikidoAl to ASVogel. I found at Reverie several years ago that AikidoAl is neither memorable or pronounceable.
Nice! Especially like the dinosaurs and reptiles. With your halfling/hobbit sketches, were you going for a more cartoonish look?
I like your Secret Santa piece. Sucks that you haven't gotten your end, but the Secret Santa was good experience in making a piece eh?
The CHOW: The ideas are there but they need...
Sorry I'm late for the reply, and I still need to post the lovely painting I recieved.
Windsrock, I'm so glad you like it! I tried to pack as much as could into the piece.:)
These are looking more and more polished as you go!
I haven't, but I did pick up his book ($8, Half-Price Books FTW!) and plan to do so...especially now that I know how to look at it.
darknight (love the name), CecelyV, jatherip, Cacoademonia...thanks for the crits and for stopping by.
Yes, more studies!
Nice environments, they have a vibrancy that I'm jealous of. I especially love "Capital City" and hope to see more pieces with that look.
I took Vandruff's Anatomy class last weekend (through on-demand) which caused several "ah ha" moments. The big one was how to more effectively use the artist anatomy texts, specifically Bridgeman's,...
I've got no crits really. What sort of look are you going for? Something dramatic? photoreal? Personally I think the apple looks lovely, and especially like the reflection on the knife.
I'm in! Sent PM. I haven't done a Secret Santa in ages, and this is the first one I've been excited about.:)
I like the direction of the latter silhouettes, as all the anatomical parts flow together into a whole.
Looking good. Your work is looking more and more polished.
Four hour speedpaint. I started it immediately after winding down from a Halloween Party and looking at the clock. I was like, hey, it's November 1st, it's legal.:)
I'm going to echo Cookiedough's sentiments. The hands and feet look roughly rendered when there is a lot of promise in communicating the characters' personality by their hands. I would look at...
I love the toothbrush idea and your results with it. It reminds me the workshop I went to last summer where the instructors told us to work with as big a brush as possible instead of immediately...
Love the moleskin work. When you work digitally do you work directly or have you tried scanning from pencil. I'm recently going back to scanning since my own pencils are stronger traditionally than...
Looking good. Watch your proportions and keep it up!
Wrapping up the webcomic paintings which doubled as various color and art studies. The first is in a Japanese Print style, the second is a take off on Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase." Also...
Thanks for posting the step-by-step piece! On step 2 to 3 you went from a white to a neutral-colored background. Is the advantage in that to prep it for the environmental background renderings or...
Thanks Cacodaemonia! I have been joking proudly that I went from total crap to mediocre.
The class itself was about 3 hours, with about 2 hours worth of Q&A which ran all over the board in terms...
