Start of a digital inking practice piece over a pencil by John Byrne:
A beautiful painting (must admit I haven't seen the original yet, just heard the name).
How can I have missed this thread?! Learning from the masters is something I just loove.
Time for a quick update:
- 30 min virtual life drawing from photo ref - male (digital)
- Bridgman study (start each day with drawing one of his figures :D)
- 30 min virtual life drawing from...
Thanks for the feedback. The theme of the challenge was "Hidden in plain sight". My idea was a Naiad (waternymph) that is almost a part of the water. Rather difficult to paint convincingly.
Hi and thanks for feedback. Your wish is my command ;), here is another finished for a monthly art challenge. Turned out to be an experiment, but anyway. Call it "Naiad" (ArtRage3 and Photoshop)
Alrighty then, finally had the guts to undress and draw myself.
First 15 min from mind, then 15 min from life. Really instructive.

Sorry to hear that, but glad things are looking brighter again. :) Glad to see you drawing again.
That line work is just... lovely. Keep going.
enjoy those studies and following your digital practice. Improving all the time, just keep going!
My first two Bridgman books arrived yesterday! Also uploaded a bunch of images to my...

Drawn from: Frazetta; Photo Ref (in ArtRage3); Life; Photo ref; Munch (w color pens); Photo ref and Doré
Well, I'm sorry as well. Been busy over at IFX and blogging. Have kept drawing daily however. :)
Here's a pencil drawing I finished last night (no ref.). Call it "Seasight":
Thanks for encouragement, Gamerhomie
And thanks for that long and thorough feedback "hitnrun", many great advices to digest and apply. :)
Here's my latest drawing - Elvis drawn from photo ref...
Been mostly sketching master studies this week:

All drawn with ink pen....
Ink pen sketch of an elephant from photo ref:
Raphael masterstudy (ink pen) from Hale's book:
That's great - that's the main reason I do it ;-)
Thanks for encouragement. Have tried the recommended "ink pen drawing from life". Hard but fun, some gestures turned out better than others:
#1-15: RL ink pen gestures
Finished version of Moonrise:
Another fantasy landscape piece of mine:
Beautiful animal paintings. Like how the frog seems to blend with background and that baboon silhuette really makes an impact. Well done.
Here's my last bunch for the week. Hale talks a lot about...
Don't be too hard on yourself, I like these. :)
Can truly recommend Hale's Drawing lessons from the great masters by the way - 100 great drawings from old masters to copydraw from. All being...
Thanks for encouragement. Guess I could post the beginning of an Elvis drawing for my mother (HB pencil) - have changed the eyes somewhat since this one was scanned.
Also drew an ink pen sketch of a...
Have begun reading - and drawing from - Hale's great book Drawing lessons of the great masters. Here's a Fuseli master study (HB pencil):
Kicking off this week with some simplified ink pensketches.
First some animal anatomy (neck/head).
Then some hair variations from Hamm's "Cartooning the head & figure"
Apart from that I've...
