    Interesting work.. it might help those who are willing to crit if you explained the goal behind your work a little, as it comes across as somewhat abstract, which is harded to crit if you're not sure what the aim of the artist is or was!

    That's a good point, although even though these couple drawings are a bit abstract, not everything I'll post will be. Thanks for taking a look

    OK, criteeeeq -

    Get to know your 'forms' when you paitn digitally. THe rendering of the first two images lack any hard edges or form. You need in your own mind, to be clear what it is, your painting. I'm sure these are practise, and thats good, Im saying this so you can keep it in mind.
    The phot manip is pretty awesome, I like the textures, colors and shapes. Maybe, you could find a way of integrating that into your figures/characters?

    Thanks for taking a look Molly. One of my issues is that I draw from whatever I happen to be thinking of at the moment instead of disciplining myself to draw a singular concept from start to finish. I'm hoping to work on that and have that the bulk of this sketchbook. I think this coming week I'm going to buy that Glenn Vilppu book on human form that Skethling mentioned.

    With the skull picture I was trying a process of using markers on vellum, scanning them, then layering them to generate ideas. Attached is the layered marker sketch for that.

    With the photo manip, I've definately in the past been concentrating on that for a lot longer than I have been drawing. I've got tons of graphic design and photography stuff but I'd like to concentrate now on improving my drawing/painting/whatever skills.

    Still haven't gotten the Vilppu book yet so I've been working on one of Loomis' books in the mean time. I'll have to take a pic of the pages and upload them. Until then here's a graphic design I did last night.

    Hey james hope youre well mate. Great meetin ya last weekend.
    as far as crits go. I really suggest you study rendering some basic forms. bumskee and idiot apathy have set up some brilliant digital painting thread, that i think would really help you out.

    Lately I've been attending a London life drawing session, this coming week will be my 7th week in a row going. Prior to this I had never drawn a figure from reference, come to think of it... I don't really every draw anything from reference... so you can see why it was important that I start attending these sessions. At anyrate here's (hopefully) the progress I've made thus far. The poses are random, they range from 30 seconds to 45 minutes, with some of them even moving continuously. The quality of the paper is bad(I folded them up, I will start rolling them up) and I took pictures of them in bad lighting. I'm not too worried about all that just at the moment but in the future as I improve I will take better care. Also, I'd like to start going twice a week so that I can work on hands, feet, head one day and then the body/gesture the next day. Also I need to start practicing in the time between(which I haven't). At anyrate, any comments are appreciated as I'm pretty hard to offend. THANKS!

    Attachments: First Session.
