    NEW ink, pencil, watercolor experiments - always ladies

    I've been very inspired by some of the work I've seen in here. Very inspired. The vision and technical skill some of you exhibit is awesome.

    While I'm nowhere near that level, I want to start working towards it. Maybe you guys will help me? I love critical feedback. Well thought out advice is incredibly valuable, so please, if you have anything, let me know, okay?

    That said, here are some rough sketches I've done. I'm TERRIBLE at doing finished pieces. Never a clear enough vision of what I want the piece to look like.

    All your sketches have great shadow placement. I love the fact that you can see everything that way blocked out. Great use of geo.

    Kadious - thanks for the comment! The shape of shadows is something I've always loved when other artists do it. It doesn't look real, but it helps define form I think. Now I just need to learn what the actual forms are that the shadows should define. Thus the studies.

    Pascalo - No prob on checking your book! Thanks for the feedback! I will keep it rollin' I think....hopefully.

    Here are a couple more Bridgman studies of feet mixed with quick sketches. Nothing too remarkable, but what the heck...

    Awesome shading, inspires me to make my own shading that way. I love your model too - organic yet metallic.

    Hey! People actually look at this stuff! Thanks guys!

    Reika - no problem. Every day while I'm at work it really helps to take a break and check out all of the amazing stuff going on in these forums. Art from all over the world that people will show for free!! It's awesome!

    Legendary Left - Thanks for coming by the book! It means a lot to me to get feedback from so many different people. Everyone has a cool perspective to hear.

    Sarvan - thanks for the feedback on the shading. Do you think it's too much when the shading looks like that? I'm always wondering...if that's how I draw a fleshy woman like her, then what will a metallic or stone woman look like? In fact, I'm attaching a pic of a woman made from stone and she looks like my flesh model. lol

    Nethus - I'm glad I'm doing something right! hehe. Thanks for taking the time to crit my book. Especially from someone who's been around on the forums for a while like you have.

    Okay, here are two more. One is a digital painting I've recently done. I'm trying to find a way to use my pencil lines and still color them. I really like how penciled pieces look, but want them to have a more "finished" feeling. I don't know if I saved the pencils enough in this piece. It's one of a series of small illustrations I'm printing and framing in my house. Each features a virtue I admire and want to practice daily.

    The other is an illustration of an enviro. I've never EVER drawn environments before. Don't think I did it very well here, but had to try.
