    Hey Novbert, It's great to see a constant stream on sketches, I wish I saw as much in my sketchbook. You've improved a lot since your sketchbook started, good work. Some advice: You need to define your edges a bit more it think. Seeya round

    I just can't stop drawing these photoreffed ones - maybe a bad habit...
    but I'm kinda satisfied with this one (okay, it still could be much better):

    this is virtually my first attempt to draw a human figure totally without reference. It was really hard - and I'm not too satisfied with the result - but it reminds me how much I need to learn about the human anatomy.
    Here is what I call final.

    It's kinda messy, and the shading is also very basic, but I thought there was no point pushing it further.
    And here are the WIP images:

    reffed stuff I've been workin' on for 3 days. Actually my first fully rendered colored drawing made entirely in painter - I had performance issues with PS - and Painter is somehow much cooler

    Here's a step-by-step:

    and here's the final(?) result

    kingkostas: thanx for the comment. Yes, portraits are my favourite subjects - I can only hope you're right about the mastering thing

    here's another from last night. I successfully achieved the sharper look I wanted, but I couldn't finish the face - again (though I tried about dozen times). Jeez, I'm out of shape!
    Anyway:

    You know i really like the way you did it with this sharper look.I think i will also spent some time doing some experiments with just blocking pure hues to the right positions.It looks fantastic
    Ok now finish it ;D
    see ya

    kingkostas: I'm glad you like it, and I can only recommend this method. That blurry look of my previous drawing just made me crazy

    Here is the result of today's work (photoreffed, PS&Painter):

    The image from #105 came out really well. Your phot ref stuff is definitely improving, but I'd suggest stepping back from it for a little while and trying to do some portraits and/or characters on your own. If you need inspiration, try looking at some old DSG or CHOW prompts. Studies are great, but doing your own thing in between them gives you a chance to see how much you've actually learned.

    Keep it up!

    Red face

    thespianmonsalvo: thanks, man
    snootchy: I'm glad you love them. your second sentence doesn't make too much sense for me, but to answer your question: I drew all this stuff with my Wacom bamboo
    Senira: Thanks for the kind words. I followed you advice and I drew a totally refless thing today.

    So here you go the stomach-ache-worm (about 2 hours, photoshop, and no ref used)

    Make sure to pay attention to silhouette when you design creatures, characters, props, etc. The pose on the worm is difficult to read because it's standing relatively straight, and there's no negative space to separate the crossed arm from the torso. By having the worm bend more at the waist, and by pulling the elbow out a bit more at the same time, the gesture will read better and create a stronger piece.

    L. Scott Knight: I'm glad to hear that, man. Thanks.

    Here goes the daily dose: a pose, a portrait, and a ... random thingy
    I'm still trying to push the refless thing.
