    MarkBehm's book

    Finally decided I gotta put up a sketchbook. I feel like I can put roughs up here and get feedback. Yes? Nobody wants to crit on blogs. Overall and specific C&C are most appreciated!

    First (not the icon) is for a forum called drawerGeeks. Topic: create-a-sith. The other is my first oil sketch in years.

    Good start here. Pretty odd thing the second one ^__^. Haha. Cool though. Seems like you have good potential. Seeing forward to more of your work.

    Whoa! More!
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    The arm with a face! That's genius! I think you've got a good sense of drama in your works, good lighting and dynamic poses so far....hope to see more

    Stoat - crazy trad stuff!! More more more!

    A doodle+Lunchtime-lifedrawing at work from 2 dif sessions. 1 3 and 5 minutes all vine and/or compressed charcoal. Focusing mostly on massing in form and shadow rather than gesture. Charcoal is frightening and unfamiliar to me but I love how some people make it look!

    Alex: Woohoo! Thanks!

    Lunchtime quickie paint (drawing yesterday) Anatomical problems abound. This is one area I need to do more foundational work in.

    I want to write down my current goals so I have something to look back on...

    Anatomy
    _Hands & Feet - structure and value study
    _truer understanding of the shoulder girdle

    Man-made/mechanical

    Environmental

    Acrylic sketch on watercolor paper from last night.
    I've only ever dabbled in acrylics and never dry-brush. It was really fun! From time to time I plan to dip into them like this. Maybe even color someday.

    And yeah, I really wussed out on the neck.

    Woooowoooweeewaaaa, amazing, you know what could be even more awesome and cool?, to show your process, maybe a video or something like snapshots, maybe im asking too much?, i dont loose anything by trying , keep posting you awesomeness!.

    Edit:
    Im no expert, so feel free to ignore the following critique.

    On your last work, the forehead of the guy has a very pronounced curve, making the head look more like a triangle than an enlarged "box", i think this is because the values that are in the zone of the eyebrows are not maintaned in the forehead, but go much darker than they should, as if their angle almost didnt face the light, as the eyebrow zone faces the light, also, it has no projected shadows-', on the nose, neck, mouth, eyes?. Also, the outline make it look as if it where a relief, and not 3d object in a 3d space... the guys face (image on the above post, the one with the girld) looks kind of a relief too. As is said, feel free to ignore, im an amateur in all this.
