    What a variety of stuff! The horse-cello-thing made my day.

    Your face anatomy seems to be a bit off - unless you aim for that effect. Maybe some construction work dedicated to faces to get things in place?

    For the rest I loved to see your art, you have a great imagination!

    Greetings

    Thanks mosaik. Cheers for pointing out the faces, sometimes it's hard to see where you're going wrong if you get into a routine of doing things in a particular way. I'll work on my structual development

    Thanks Velocity, glad I can get you hard ........

    Anyway, cheers for the link but I can barely make it out. Looks like a plane with cannon balls attached to the wings. Thanks for the thought though.

    Hey ben good to see you're uploading stuff, have you been doing any more life drawing since the last time because you should upload some of that as well.

    your knowledge of the human body is very strong and your biggest strength is with the technological robotic aspects of your artwork which makes sense as thats what you said you were most interested in. However in my opinion the quality of faces that you do is below average in comparison. So definitely do some more studies of faces dude.
    If you like i could point you to some stuff that i found useful.

    The two boards you've done on this page are great definitely your best work so far, how did you make these? the graytone and black is exceptionally tight and smooth.

    Anyways

    upload more!

    Hi Podcod.
    Good to hear from you. Unfortunetly I've been too busy with boards and website work to follow up with the life drawing, I suppose I could've fitted it in if I tried :/. Thanks for your mails about it though, once work starts to slacken off a bit I'll get to book a class or two.

    Glad my anatomy is working, I've always though I work too much one faces to be honest. Oh well. Yeah, never my strong point as I feel I always draw the same face over and over again.

    The boards were just done in acrylic. Worked from a previous sketch and then worked out where the main body goes and build up from there. It took me about a week to do the second board, much longer than I intended to spend on it but all for the best. They've been put to good use, check out the video.

    your sketchbooks are just breath taking. there's so much imagination and control on every page. You dominant of everything your trying to do here. It's deeply frustrating

    Wow...yer sketchbooks are crazy good and creative. Keep working on color and "final" pieces...that's a bit behind your pencil work...but clearly you have the skill to do it!! I dig that metal-look downtown sign!

    Thanks sic-side-fx. Nice to know I'm getting somewhere, even though sometimes I feel I'm not. It's good to have projects and deadlines as it's these that make you think.

    You're very right Jephyr X, I spend too much time on my sketchbook and not enough on the final pieces. Not really sure why.
    I'm plugging away at colour too but I find it's a very hard thing to grasp when I keep working in greyscale. Thanks for your comment.

    This was an initially a sketch for a spray painting. Tried to work into it a lot more later but really I don't think the drawing and colours worked from the start.

    Hey ben, good to see ur working hard on those faces and hope ur finding them helpful

    Ive done a quick paintover of your last painting,

    ive mostly pushed the values on parts of the robot closer to the foreground Generally objects closer to the front will have a larger value range due to fog and atmosphere fading out distant areas. this also applies to saturation as well.

    the main points id like to see are more variety in colour, bigger range of values and more attention to which parts and in which direction the light is hitting the robot and buildings.

    To be fair i can see u already are aware of these things, all u need to do is do more photo and life studies and more colour illustrations and u will improve greatly.

    Hey Podcod.
    Good to hear from you again. Thanks for the paint over, those tips for the values is great as I wondered why it just didn't have any depth. Orginally I tried to restrict myself with colour as I was doing it for use with spray paint, as I always find it a bind that you can easily run out a colour and that just buggers your piece as you can't just mix paints to recreate it.

    Loving what you've done with the eye/lens and the reflections look great. I agree that I should try and work more with colour but I'm in a bit of a rut as the majority of commissions I get are for black and white or greyscale. But yeah, with spare time I should get colouring.

    Thanks again.

    Hey duder, i'm really inspired by how much you pack into your sketch pages! I really dig the pages on post 346 on this page, the sci-fi tech look awesome.

    No real crits, i like your dedication to your workflow. Keep up the hard work!

    Thanks for dropping by my SB.
    You got some really cool stuff going on, tons of cool sketches and concepts.
    Something I get told alot and try to take notice of is contrast (or the lack of it) in digital stuff.
    Doing some grayscale value studies between work helps with that alot.
    Colour is a real bitch to work with digitally comparing to traditional media too, but that's just another thing to study.
    Keep it up mate, you're doing great.
