    Damn, Dman

    Hi there my CA peoples. Well here goes mine, sorry about the bad photos, I'll post better sketchbook images when I get a new scanner sometime. They are a bit fuzzy, but you get the idea. Everything in this first group is ball point pen, except the digital ones of course. Thanks for checkin' it out!

    Ok, now this is the first ever oil painting I did several years back. I used one of those things you get at Barnes&Noble that comes with a small set of oils and a brush, and you follow the instructions in the little booklet that comes with it. My version turned out.... different. Anyway...sigh...haven't picked up a brush or painted anything since, so i'm posting this here as a reminder to me to get over it, or something.

    Looking really good! Keep at it and gain more mileage. Your style will come to the forefront. I like the structure and pose in the girl sitting on her knees, it reminds me of Robert Crumb's work.

    Long time, no update!

    Here are a few pages from my copies of Bridgman's hands. This isn't the first go with George B, but this time around I did focus more on understanding what is going on rather than just trying to copy. Just need to work more consistently and gain some retention.

    Yippie Kai Yay

    Hey ccsears, thanks for the kind words, and for the work you are putting into your "Guidelines..." thread... very helpful!

    Thanks for stopping by Delmar, I appreciate the input!

    Here are some partial figure drawings using the methods of the Bone Doctor himself, aka Mentler...

    Fucking love your hands, dude. Hopefully I'm this good in about six months or so (I'm rubbish now. I just like to aim high).

    The Finga

    Thanks Arkos78, Mosthorribleyet, and some_guy, you guys are too kind! I'm just doing what I can, still (and always will) have a long way to go.

    Ok I guess this one was doomed from the get go, but I pretty much forced my way through it and managed to screw it up even more. It was actually just gonna be a fist but I didn't like how the outline was coming so I gave it the finger, then decided to give that a go with it instead. Probably should have just tossed it and started anew, which was my gut feeling in the beginning.

    Really gotta work on knowing where to stop. These past few hands all had a point where I said to myself, well ok no masterpiece but it looks good enough for me. That is my instinct. Unfortunately there's this other creature living in my hand that feeds on lines and demands more and more and soon enough everything becomes an overworked gobbledygook.

    The middle finger being too small bothered me, cuz dagnabit that's what it was all about! Decided to post it anyway.

    Couple arm studies and exercise, and a couple more ladies...

    Thanks algenpfleger and Maidith! I'm practicing as much as I can, but it's not nearly enough. Must Draw More.

    The arm is bad in the bottom image, screwed up the forshortening. Her upper arm is supposed to be coming forward and not just going straight up, therefore making the lower arm look longer, couldn't pull it off this time.
