    Wow, very nice. the background and the typeface work very well.
    Good job shading the figure.
    A few minor things that could have been intentional, the neck seems long,
    and the eyes are large and lacking in tonal variation.
    But this does draw the viewer to the face much quicker.

    thanks for comments Ash. You're right. The hands are too big and the neck isn't so much too long as it's too wide and weirdly cropped, so it looks all wrong.

    Next time.

    Some heads sketched while watching Juno.

    Nice. I like your lines and the way you "clump" shadows. Mature sense of composition, too.

    You just need to keep doing this. Lots of this.

    Every day.

    Until you die

    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).

    Here is a cheater update if ever there was one.

    I took two of my drawings and some illustrator stuff and made my very own desktop. I've never done this before and..I'm kind of ashamed of that. Get with the time, Snubbed.

    The quote is the classic from Edison. I think there are two types of people in the world (oh boy, here we go). Thinkers and Doers. Rarely are the two combined. When they are, you get people like Bill Gates, JD Rockefeller, Jeff Bezos and all the others that have made our world awesome. Being a doer that doesn't think, though, is stupid. You just move along and get things done, but you don't really consider all of the reasons and purposes and cool stuff you could have done. You're more interested in getting it done than really thinking it through and being original. Being a thinker means you may have great ideas, but you don't get shit done and so it doesn't mean spit. All your great ideas just rot to death in your skull and once in a while ooze in conversation, but even that is rare.

    Unfortunately, I'm worried I'm more thinker than doer. Doers always have great careers because they get shit done for people. Thinkers always COULD have AMAZING careers, if they would just get fucking motivated.

    Anyway...here's my desktop to help me stay focused and GET SHIT DONE.

    Nice pencil renderings! I especially like how you add bits of watercolors to some of these as well, that's totally cool. Just work on that anatomy a little bit and you'll be fine. Keep it up!

    Been a long time, but I have been drawing. Finished the five panel piece based on Milton's Paradise Lost. They're framed in one long frame with five sequential openings. These are the last four.

    Thanks Daraf. They are a visual interpretation of selected segments of John Milton's "Paradise Lost" from the mid 1600's.

    Here is a face that I watercolored in my moleskine. Don't usually use water colors over the pencils, but this worked. I might try some more.

    I'm really loving these more recent moleskin pieces, but my favorite is the one in post 105. I love how you almost stretched the composition with the watercolors. Great stuff, I'll be watching this.

    thanks dood! But I'm not at the point that you want to copy me yet. It's a standard process - a pencil outline using straight lines - no curves - to establish shape and proportions of major objects (head, torso, legs, etc.) then do it again, but now getting a little more detailed about face and shadow shapes, then start rendering with charcoal. That's the point where most of my drawings are flopping. I'm working too small for charcoal. My paper needs to be bigger and more expressive.

    Here's a graphite pencil wash I just did. Used a photo from deviantart for ref: http://icachandesign.deviantart.com/...-Haze-99401305

    the graphite mastery is really coming along well. the design elements are accenting the illustrations very nicely.

    keep it up snubbed.

    very cool sketches man. and nice way of putting color and design on them.
    I'm especially fond of the last two.
