    Dizon; Eh.. I hope so!
    PeopleEveryday; That's a very good critique. In retrospect, the point you raised is not something I've paid attention to. Sometimes it's difficult to point out the flaws, but I do believe you are correct here. Thanks a lot!
    zou; Thanks! Need to do more, more more!
    Angel Intheuk; I appreciate the kind words, though I agree only partially. I'm still drawing quite a bit, but I'm often really fighting to get anything done. I can't do it even when I know I do want to draw. Don't know if its common. Something I need to get figured out.
    As far as the rubberyness concerns, I believe it occurs when I get carried away with dynamic poses, foreshortening or anatomy. Figure solidity seems to lose out first when that happens.
    oren90; Thank you!

    First one is a SSG study (suggested by Crane). Assignment was to draw plants based on a lists of nicknames. *edit* Just noticed the names are intelligible. I chose "stained glass", "unwelcoming", "wind sock", "cat ears".

    Then two Daily Sketch Group things.

    And a CHoW entry.

    Went lifedrawing with Kapri and ashess last week. I was ill, got there late, and had no idea what I was doing. Still a lot of fun.

    20min each (slow!). First two are A2 sized, then I ran out of paper and had to use an A4 sketchbook. Will prepare better next time..

    Hey man! Great updates lately! Like those DSG's and really Liked your alien gardner chow piece, got my vote on it, though something's bugging me. The lighting on the glass of his helmet is a tiny bit distracting to me, and I think you should indicate it's outer edge a little more so it's shape is a little more defined, there is a subtle line to indicate it's edge near the bottom part but it's a little bit too subtle.
    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    This could be a good thing to experiment with. Perhaps you should try to limit yourself to a few values once and see how it works out. You could start with three (darkest, midtone, lightest (nothing)), and see how it looks, then add more if it feels right. Even if it doesn't fix your specific problem it could be a learning experience all the same.

    Hi Anthis

    Loving the enviros The atmosphere in the sci-fi one with the couple is really nicely done.

    What you said in regards to feeling like you're struggling, I constantly feel like that too and apparently it means that we're making progress (I heard it recently as well from the Crimsondaggers interview with Brad Rigney from 2009, don't know if you've seen any of their videos but I'm finding them a great inspiration atm - here's the link to their Youtube page-->http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...1019.1j2j3.6.0.) Anyway keep up the good work

    hesse; Yea good point. I already switched to B/2B pencils, but I'm still drawing too 'lightly'.
    Rob Powell; hey Rob! Thanks for the comments, there were none exchanged during that round. C.O.W does way better when it comes to critique. I can understand if the glass effects are badly placed- I wasn't quite sure how to handle it.
    Mr.Ebony; Thanks!
    JyouHah, that's a while ago though! Cheers, though I think I need to practice way more on the environments.
    Hai; Good points there. Perhaps some more simple value studies as well, or cast drawings. These things are fundamental and invaluable after all. I'm pretty sure it would fix a lot of problems.
    Angel Intheuk; Haven't seen the videos yet, though I do own the Brad Rigney download from Massive Black. So I think already I know what you're referring to. Will check out the daggers stuff though. Nothing new is gained when you stick to comfortable ground, right?
    zou; That could be true. I'm still quite unfamiliar with charcoal, and figure drawing in general. There's usually no warm-up time, though.

    Not too much... for now.

    This weeks Creature of the Week entry. Topic is "Whiptongue". Tried not to use any specific animal reference this time, attempting come up with something completely new.

    nice creature, although it seems detailed, it could be more finished

    Quick update: lifedrawing session with Kapri back in May. Charcoal, ~A2 size, bit over an hour I believe. Got another one that needs scanning.


    Let me clarify inactivity:

    I'm supposed to be graduating from uni within the next month, so I'm rushing to get my thesis done. Practically doing night shifts of writing, so there's very little time for other stuff.

    Aching to draw but I can't spare the time right now. Soon though... very soon!!.....

    Your figure studies are awesome! They feel natural, and you have a good line. Keep it up!

    Really nice work (especially your studies).

    Just discovered you, but I'd love to see more from you (when you have the time, from what I understand).
