    love your figure drawings. How long did it take you to get where you are with anatomy and besides life drawing did you learn from any books like Hogarth's?

    bad ass bad ass bad ass

    one thing, i love the texture, but i can tell its a texture
    rotate the texture you use of screw with the size, thatll help creat the illussion of it being real even though its digital


    I love the figures

    Hey thanks for the comments everybody.

    Kaffinated-- My first "anatomy" book was "How to draw the marvel way" when I was about 11yrs. I attended an art school from seventh grade to my senior year in high school. My biggest teachers during that time was Leonardo, Caravaggio, Zurbarán, Bernini, and Michelangelo. I didn't see Hogarth's books until I came to the states during college. By then many of my fine arts teachers were very inspiring, most notably Jim Radford. Learned a great deal from him.

    Books are a good source of resource, you can use Hogarth's book as reference for muscle studies and whatnot, but you really want to do as much real life drawing as possible. It helps in keeping yourself focused on the figure as a whole(especially during quick 1-3 minute gestures)

    Flipnastywebby -- Thanks for the comments and suggestion. Yeah it's a texture, wasn't trying to pass it as a "real" painting. In reality it's a big PSD that I end up making new layers on top when I'm doing digital life drawings. And then I just output the background with the new layer into a separate jpg.

    anyways thanks again for the feedback.

    wow very nice figure work here, the nice curves and lines are brilliant
    not quite sure what it is about them but you have the proportions down and you figures are gorgeous
    one thing to keep on eye on though is that when you shade try to smoothin out your tones a little bit,
    but the way you use the line width to help portrait the figure is neat work, I look forward to further updates stop by my SB some time I would appreciate some advice on how you make your people so relaxed and human looking, like they are living
    but ya cool stuff and ill see you around

    Thanks for the compliments, and jedininjaman thanks for the tip
    Something a bit different this time.
    Wanted to do a POP art/Bill Sienkiewicz kinda of design. Had a lot of fun with it, especially trying to convey a watercolor effect digitally.

    These sketches are for my next marvel superhero piece.
