    J.Hansen:I doubt it man this stuff is just the basics they teach in schools but i am hoping it helps, thanks for the encouragement.

    Eon:Thanks mate stamina? amount of drawing i do is no where near enough i really have to up my game if i am ever going too have an ounce of confidence.I feel as soon as what i am drawing starts to represent somewhere near what i actually intended to be, you wont be able to tear me away from a pencil but i am still waiting for that day.

    Saturns Gate: Ta mate, yeah i am extremely weak on my color theory i, i am slow reading Briggs website thou and a few others which opening my eyes alot, when i go for my daily run i cant stop staring at the sky or shadows on the road because i see more and more variety in colors every time its awesome.

    More Dogs tonight but not any really worth posting as its just anatomy i did do some sketching at the end of the night again and strangely enough i was relaxed and not trying too hard and it turned out allot cleaner then my usual trash, Hopefully i can repeat the effort tomorrow.

    On second thought, my scanner must be crap it don't look fuzzy like that on the paper.

    Man that last sketch is looking great. I also like the dog studies a lot. Your 3d forms and proportions are improving really fast and your drawings are looking a lot cleaner. Only crit that I have is to push your darks more when you're shading. Keep up the hard work mate!

    Oh man, to think that you've come this far in two years - You're farther than a lot of people on this site. That's inspiring. The quality of work is great. I'm with fantasy ^^ I'd like to see some realllllly dark values, don't be afraid to press that pencil like you're trying to gouge a hole straight through the paper.

    fantasyartist: as always dude appreciate your help, i feel like my sketches come out too dark so i am a bit confused, where do you mean push the darks every value or just in halftones/cores/cast shadows????

    Lair Radical:Thanks mate thats cool to hear and I will try and push the values more.


    Some Doggies there not that great but i think ts a pretty good improvement for just one week study this i am going on too cats for this week because they are a carnivore mammal as well so there anatomy isn't very different and i can use what i have already learned as a starting point ,also i included a quick lets see what i can turn a bunch of lines into sketch as well just for fun.

    Push your values on the shadow side to get a clear separation from the light side. Right now I see no difference between halftones and shadows.

    Yea mate i think its just because i am still playing with new muscle groups and proportions that i don't set myself up a light source i guess i keep thinking of it is as too hard but it isn't really i am just being slack and if do it every sketch it will become norm so from now on i will try to do that thanks.

    Nice work mate. That last one has some really nice shading. Would love to see you really push those values a bit more. Keep it up.

    Did not feel like anatomy studies today so i just stuffed around, o and i really have to get around to studying clothes soon they are a massive struggle and guesswork at the moment.

    LECO: Thanx mate yeah i am trying Cats at them moment with varying results my mind keeps jumping between dog and cat measurements and i get a mix of the two, more study is just required i guess.

    JCH: Ta, yer i don't know if its me or the medium but i am really struggling with values something i will try and focus on a again soon.

    I saw your thread in the lounge and looked through your gallery. Great stuff! I like it all. The digital skulls are getting nice. If you want to get more involved in them, going for bone textures can make them really sing.

    The anatomy work is nice - the recent dogs are really phenominal. They're solid, twisting, in perspective, and they seem to work. The exaggerations work. Draw even more of em. Also, however you studied them, do that for people, because your figures are a bit uneven.

    I noticed the biggest problem you had with figures is the twisting of the torso, and also the shape of feet. I'm no expert, but I've got a tutorial on the figure on my deviantart account. The best thing about it are there are tons of links to figure photographers (some of the best on the web), so it's a great resource to look up and sketch from.

    I also really like those recent bugs/critters. The axis lines they stand on are a great idea. I should try that for some figure studies.

    TASmith: Thanks mate, the reasons for the bad feet is i haven't bothered to do much in depth studies on feet yet and i tend to try and just chucking a quick suggestion anyway until i do get around to it, thanks for pointing out my uneven figures i think i need to do some more measurement studies and ill will check out your tutorial too thanks for stopping by and giving me your thoughts.

    At work today and wanted to do some rendered side views of some of the thumbnails, couldn't completely remember what they looked like but they turned out all right anyway. i really like this process of thinking about simply shape design first, i always knew about it just never done it.

    Wow bro, really like your last anatomy study! Did you use a live model or reference photos? My only gripe with it is the way the right arm is twisting… there seems to be something wrong with his elbow but is not very noticeable. Other than that is pretty dam solid. Keep rocking ;-)

    Leco:Cheers, nah i don't use reference i really should, it would help me allot but i don't have enough patience yet to look back and forth at something and its also feels boring trying to clone something when i could create, i prefer to try and figure it out in my head it takes me a longer but i am slowly getting quicker. Everything in this thread is not referenced except when i post some life drawings on Tuesday which say they are when I upload em.

    Not much to upload tonight just squiggles at then end of the day when my eyes where ready to pop out,most of the day was spent studying Animal kingdom classification to help me when try and create realistic made up animals, its really useful and i recommend anyone interested in doing something along those lines to study them.

    on the subject of feet, I know alot of people around here hate Hogarth, but his drawing books show some great sketches of the basic shape of feet. It's worth looking up and just copying down a few times.
