    nice pencils man, a distinct style emerging. Still seem on occasion a bit short and wide, maybe if you really concentrate on going in the complete opposite direction, ya know, long and slender, perhaps you could reach some sort of balance. I like your rendering tho as always.

    Great stuff. I totally looked at your sketchbook because I just finished the Space Wolf Omnibus.

    I ordered the Eisenhorn Omnibus because Abnett is supposed to be really good. I was interested in continuing the Space Wolf series, but I hear it goes downhill after William King stop writing.

    I'm a sucker for Warhammer artwork.

    rhino life drawing is definitely something I'd go well out of my way to do... Nice lines man, looking slightly more slender too.

    Excellent sketchbook.

    One thing I have noticed is that you seem to have adopted 40k style proportions for allot of your character concepts, I’m not sure if this is intentional but it is the first thing I thought as soon as I looked at your stuff drawn from the imagination.

    By 40k style proportions I mean that GW often distorts the proportions of their art to make them look more like their miniatures. If you’ve spent a lot of time looking at their artwork and figures it can skew your inner eye when working from imagination. This is especially true when working on GW inspired stuff. When I worked for them they explained that it creates a strong visual bond between the artwork and the figures. It’s actually the artwork and stories that sell the figures. So in order to make that connection stronger the artists mimic the proportions of their 28mm miniatures to some extent. This is because a 28mm sculpture can only have so much detail and they can’t really sculpt them anatomically correct or they loose their impact, so it has to be sculpted in such a way that it becomes a caricature that draws the eye to the important parts of the figure. This is why they often have big hands, head, feet and weapons. Even now when they have moved away from the excessive over exaggeration that they used to use a decade ago they’re still caricatures.

    Anyway hope that makes sense?

    Keep up the great work you’ve inspired me to look up life drawing classes in my area.

    wookiedabo thanks man - your encouraging words are always....encouraging to me i appreciate it

    Hybrid Alpha-11 youve got a good point mate - probably something to do with the 3 years i spent at GW as a graphics guy - too much of an influence i guess...im glad you brought it up tho coz its something i need to move away from also, glad to hear your sorting out some life drawing - it is awesome! :geek:

    more stuff, some life drawing and some other bits...

    Hi! Great stuff you've got, however, you should watch your proportions. Your heads are consistently too large relative to the bodies.

    Chaser226 cheers for the crit man! you're definately right - i think all my proportions are a bit squat, heads too big, hands too big....gah, its something i really really really need to focus on more!

    jatherip cheers dude, another nice crit...i havent really done many still life studies for a while - if i do some more studies of real objects with different textures (like algenpfleger does) then i think that would definitely help

    in the meantime, heres some more concepty stuff:
