    Awesome graphite works!! Nice midtones

    Figure drawings look good, but I recognise something I do myself too.
    The outer lines are a bit feathered, I think that's because it's done in 3 min or so? Maybe you can watch that, and draw the lines more fluent (I do feathered lines too when I draw quick, but I got this tip from someone else .

    That is something I am trying to work on Marlisa thank you for pointing that out. I have always had a problem with having scratchy lines.. But i notice that being scratchy isn't the bad thing, but the pointless scratch marks.

    looks great man! new page.. awesome I think you can play more with contrast.. seems like you've learned to draw with a certain technique ? explore more and go crazier.. especially with line and line weight.. keep doing studies though.. but mix more with your imagination!

    your rendering from photo source is incredible.. start looking at light and shadow in the same way when you're using real-life-in-person-living-breathing-right-in-front-of-you reference. the light/dark contrast is harder to see when colours get in the way, but it's still there. also, do some blind contours when you have some free time with the life model... don't know whether you're in school or not. blind contours will really help with the feathery lines and really improve your line quality and sensitivity.

    Hey Sam, youve got some really nice things going on in these pieces. Right now I have to agree with amarryth, your photoreference stuff looks better than your model stuff. I think this may be because you are focusing on the face with the photo ref stuff though.

    Something Ive found that helps me when drawing a live model is to do a few gestures of the same pose before I go for the full body drawing. It helps me get the proportions a bit better than if I just jump right into it.

    Keep it going!

    Your charcoal and Pencil Renderings are just gorgeous You seem to have the same problem I do Draw from Photo reference and your set, but coming from your head, It's hard. My main points about your work would be to work on your line quality a bit more (Do some contours like Ammaryth said, I'm going to as well ) and study your anatomy a little more in depth.
    Kepp it up though, Your work is lovely so far, and you'll only get better

    Well I just typed up a huge explaination on how I am trying new things in taking better pictures of my work and trying out pastels. But, I deleted it on accident.

    So anywho I have been doing work don't worry just been busy this week. Here is a live pastel painting I did with the thought of placing objects in a box that had the "liquid use" theme to it. Its 32'' tall.

    Fabulous study Samuel, I particularly love the detail shot of the ink holder at the end there. The concept is lovely as well.

    Hey Samuel, great work on that last one. Real nice Two things though. One his feet look flat, almost pancaked possibly because theres not a whole lot of defenition there. Second his left side seem wavy, it just looks kind of weird.

    Either way I really love the tones you laid down, you really made it feel/look very 3d. And I love the texture you put around him, it really helps him stand out.

    Keep on truckin!

    Hey Samuel, I love the last two pieces, they have such a fluid liveliness to them, Great work.
    I was also going to point out the feet on that still life, But Newman beat me to it ^^ Great Job for such a large work though

    Oh man, how do you draw so big?! That large scale stuff looks great, and I really admire your patience in your pencil charcoal renderings. I'd really like to see more traditional media stuff in color from you.

    Thanks guyss

    Here is a sketchup of what I am going to do for one of my finals. It is of my girlfriend. It will be mixed media but black and white, because it is in drawing.

    Is there a specific theme for the assignment? I'm intrigued to find out where this is going.

    Here are two 24x18 graphite.

    "Books" and "FearFaith"

    Both done in one sitting each from my own references from Barnes&Noble of my girlfriend reading a book and a guy sleeping in a really position. I laughed really hard when I saw him.

    The other is of my girlfriend. There can be many interpretations of this but I was hoping to have something with a woman figure that is showing two different emotions or actions with male or unknown figures approaching her in confused or threatening way.

    Fabulous work on both of those pieces The guy in the chair has so much character in him, and the second of your girlfriend has an awesome composition.

    I was wondering, what is your opinion on blending, charcoal and graphite? I hear so many different things all the time, I really don't know where to go It gets confusing lol.

    those look great.. there's a wicked amount of tension in the negative space between the two figures in the first one.. my eyes keep jumping back and forth, i love when you could tell a million different stories to put an image into context.
