prsnsweeney - Thanks dude! Yeah figure drawing is the shit.
t i m - Thanks!
Metal Fingers - Thanks man, conte is soo great for figure drawing, I'm trying to learn to use it better. I see guys on here get the most accurate and awesome looking figures in like 2 minutes with conte, and that's what I'm really trying to accomplish.
Chaser226 Yes! Thanks for the crit man, I know exactly what your saying. After going through my sketchbook pages I've observed the same thing, so the next time I break out the conte that's what I'm going for, thanks!
lolbbq Thanks man. By editorial do you mean magazines and such? That'd big sick, and Jon Foster is a huge idol of mine, but my ultimate goal is to get in with a video or movie company!
cgaddict - Thanks very much for the compliments!
SAmkaa - Thanks dude!
OmertA - Thanks dude glad to have you stopping by!
Abrodos - Thanks man, I totally agree about the digital paintinng. And the armor on his shoulders as well, I wasn't really thinking about functionality . But yeah, I don't think carefully about every stroke. But I'm trying to start to, I think it will end up being a much more succesful way of studying the figure.
Eiki - Thanks!
llex_paul - Haha yeah thanks!
Mischeviouslittleelf - Thanks a lot dude glad to see you in here!
shadow1687 - Thanks!
Wow that was a lot of comments, thanks guys! I'm trying to keep up with weekly updates here, since I'm doing a lot of work in school. Here are some more figures, using ebony pencil, trying to work on linework and accuracy this time. I believe there are some proportional issues with some of these. After this post I gotta figure out what I'm going to be doing for that demo tomorrow

Your figure sketches blow my mind
ModestMouse, thirdeye - Thanks guys!!
So school is going done in about a week, and I'm so excited for summer. but that's still a long way to go right now, I've been getting killed lately with schoolwork, and have been missing quite a few deadlines, and not a whole lot of sleep. So absolutely no time for personal work, and my freelance is beginning to suffer, but I'm doing what I can. In the mean time here is a new illustration for 2d design.
We had to work with a fifth grader from an elementary school, and they essentially acted as our client for this assignment. This image is an interpretation of the greek god Ares. He is being represented here as a soldier in WWII, influencing Einstein to sign the letter to the president about the creation of the atomic bomb. I was on a pretty tight deadline here, so I took photographs for the hands and painted over them. Everything else was painted in photoshop, let me know what you think!

Your life drawings and illos are really kicking it! Woo!
Your life drawings look great.
With the latest one... I know you had a tight deadline but I think it would look better if you just sketched in the hands really quick, instead of using the photo thing. Right now the head, body and hands really don't match. Even if you're going for a graphic design style, I don't think it works... But I do like what you did with face of Ares. Good expression!
really sweet character faces is the recent post.
i love how you are searching the way of shading your figure studies. i'm doing this too in as many ways as possible. it's amazing how different techniques can expand your horizons and give you different avenues of working. i want to do this many figure studies as well. they help SO SO SOooo much!!! cheers man!!
Wow, I remember seeing your sketchbook back when you started posting...you've improved so much!
Good luck with school, keep up the good work man
dude those life drawings are just oooooooohhhhh man. I really like your construction, a lot.
Really nice work on the 'how to kill a giant' in three steps in post 287. Cool idea!
nice nice nice! love the life work!
Keep it up! More!
im a fan of this sketchbook
wow massive, massive improvement over the pages! especially apparent in your life drawings, very inspiring in the last update i feel like the hands don't belong to the people, feels a bit disconnected, maybe because of the difference in realism? not really sure.. but i know how deadlines are, so still a good job. looking forward to updates and learning a lot from your figures!
You seem to be finding your painting style. I still love some of that earlier textured stuff as long as you give the eye places to rest. Don't be afraid of pushing contrast to give the eye really hot areas to be drawn to. Those anatomy studies are rocking too. I can already seen growth in this thread! Just keep doing it!
