    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!

    Your studies of muscle and light are amazing.

    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).
