    Hey Rabbi,
    Good to see your sketchbook up over here! Continue with the good work in the Bottega, when you can start applying the lessons learned there into your character designs you will see a great improvement. I'm not great with advice, but I would say that maybe you should take a little more time with some of your work. Instead of finishing a character in 20 minutes, take that 20 minutes just working out the pose and volumes only, and then once you get that down, take your time and work out the rest of the details. Remember to draw with your head, not just your hand! Keep it up!

    Peace!

    Heya Dman! Good to see you on CA.org as well

    About taking the time to finish a drawing, yeah, that's one of my HUGE problems when it comes to art. I rarely ever find the will to take more than 30 minutes to finish a drawing. I love doing quick drawings and starting off images and sketches, but not finishing them. It's absolutely wonderful for training to work fast, but even if you're the fastest worker in the world, you still won't get hired if you can't produce a solid, finished drawing.

    Anyway, here is some more stuff. Some acrylics from my portfolio (Which still sucks) and some drawings, and a digital rendering of an apple for digital painting practice.

    In other news, I injured my right toe yesterday night whilst on the way back from the art store in Hong Kong, in the underground train station. I tripped and stumbled on the escalator, and completely lacerate my right toe. I almost lost a chunk of flesh from it, and had to walk all the way home from the train station with blood filling up my right sandal. Luckily the Japanese restaurant close to where I live gave me some tissue and bandages, so I managed to patch myself up until I got to the hospital, where I received some local anesthetic (Which hurt like a fucking bitch, let me tell you......), and 6 stitches. Woo.
    As they say, there's always an opportunity in disguise in every negative occurrence. And the opportunity here is that I get to do art more now! As I can't really walk away or anything. Or take a shower for that matter.

    Enjoy

    Here's another batch of works. Some figure drawings, from imagination, and 1 from life. Includes a demo on how I draw figures from imagination.

    There's an acrylic painting that I did today, somewhat pleased with the results, but I'm not good at painting details yet.

    Speaking of details, I'm trying my best to learn how to paint details on apples, but am not doing so well. I'm looking for anyone to help critique my work if they're willing to spare the time. In that regard, can anyone give me any advice on how to approach texturing/detailing of an apple?

    Anyway, I've tried to paint some portraits, but they're coming off very badly. I don't want to put up any of my bad work, as I feel that it is self defeating. Should I?

    Thanks for your patronage.

    Here's another apple. I'm slowly getting better I posted this on the Something Awful.com forums in the Creative Convention section, I'm getting help from great guy there. I'm not sure of his CA.org username though.

    How I see it is, even if it isn't that good looking, you still drew it. I post everything that I draw in my sketchbook because if they didn't see my not-so-good looking pieces, I wouldn't be able to improve. Just my opinion, though

    Anyways, those apples are looking nice and I like the referenced model a lot. I like your figure drawing process, I'll have to try it Keep it up!

    Those apples are looking good, Rabbi. I just started digital painting myself and mine aren't quite as good. If anything, I would say you could add darker areas in some places and you might want to try something other than a white background too. You probably already know of the digital painting thread in the ps section, but if you haven't been there already, you should definitely take a look.

    I wish I could say more about the paintings, but you've probably noticed that I'm a complete novice at it. With the last painting, I noticed you were observing how the red of the apple reflected off the brownish surface and how the brownish surface reflected off the red apple. I think the brown on the apple(s) was too overstated as it seems to mute the color. But then again, I'm no painting masta and someone probably needs to back me up on that statement.

    As for the studies, keep those up and strive to have the correct proportions each and every time you draw the figure. Anyway, good luck with your portfolio and your foot and keep posting!

    Hey Rabbi Satan!!

    Wassup dude! Well just look through ur sketchbook! I like ur paintings!!
    Well what i would suggest to u for ur portfolio u might try to finish one paiting as good as u can. Do u know the book "Oil Painting Techniques and Materials" by Harold Speed? Well it's pretty cheap but really good written even if u use Acrylics.

    I good practice to improve ur drawing skills is for example do a self portrait everyday or draw a hand everyday for a couple of months or even a year! Will help a lot to improve u observation. But keep doing those character from imagination they force u think creative! Dont loose that!! Keep at it looking forward to see more and good luck with ur portfolio

    Slow down! That's my only advice based on what you've said about how you don't like to spend more than a half hour or so on a drawing. One thing I'm learning is that I can't put new lessons in my brain for later use if I'm in a hurry. Next time you do the foreshortening work, take time to get the perspective exactly right even if it's frustrating. Then later, you'll be able to combine speed and skill for your future clients.

    Thanks for the replies everybody, will keep continuing on trying to improve

    I took my time with my 2 latest proper figure drawings. I was inspired by "Gloomati"'s sketchbook, and took the poses from there. And then I tried my own style of rendering.

    The other quick sketches were from Bridgman.

    Then there's 1 more foreshortening exercise for the Bottega.
