algenpfleger- thanks for checking up on me~! Your critique and encouragement is really a morale booster for me.
Matsign- thank you for your advice! I really appreciate it! I guess it's time for me to buy a new book, draw my own body parts, and go posemaniacs crazy!

Nice stuff and sketches! But I'd like to suggest something with your eye work, you see the skin does not have only one tone. Go ahead and check out your hand right now, see it and really look at it. You're brain might say, ahhh this is my palm, it's light colored. You might be tempted to use one shade on your palm, and use darker one for shadows and lighter ones for well... lighter areas.
But if you look closer, there will be bits of pink, red, blues, and greens on your palm, and if you want to make it as realistic as possible you have to get those tones down as well. Since the slightest change in color can change a lot in your picture's depth.
I hope I am conveying this clearly ahehehe

The Bridgman studies look great, keep up with them and you will get better in no time. Also the environments are looking pretty good as well, keep pushing the depth by messing around with contrast/ value.

Howie - Thanks for the encouragement and comment! I noted that down, will try to work on it.
I decided to try something different today so i did this erm, vector-ish piece. Takes around 5 hours. It looks only okay, but i don't mind printing it on a shirt! I loveee brown. XD
that last one looks quite quite good, though it can be counter productive in some cases to work on stylization before the basics have been truly mastered.
when an artist realizes they can get good results without mastering different aspects of the discipline, it can be difficult to find the motivation to work on things that you know will look less successful.
i advise you to keep on with the studies - they are looking good so far

ditchman - Thanks for the comment, i'll keep that in mind.
If only i were rich, i would stay home and paint/draw all day. Unfortunately, i have a job.
Had many reports to complete for the previous week and this one too, so i only manage to squeeze about 45 mins for each of this quickies. @.@ And they are not satisfactory as well. My mind is messed up. GAH.
Someone please make time slower. i need my artistic freedom.pld:

My workload is piling up!! NERRRRRR. Just to make sure that this sketchie doesnt stay dead, i'll post something.
I painted Jim Halpert, my favourite character from The Office. I just knew about this series a few months back and i am addicted to the story! I'm in the midst of season 3 now. It just gets better and better. Watch it!

I did it, I did it..I clicked on your SB link...
Nice SB here...just keep doing those studies when you have the time after work.
My advice would be to focus on a couple of studies, instead of trying to cram 3 or 5 studies in whatever time you have after you get home from work.
Doing so will help you really absorb the study that your doing and you won't wear yourself out for the next days work related challenges.
( losing apencil at 2:39 in the morning is a sign you may need to get some sleep..)
Keep posting ya hear?

Vimerge - Thanks alot! Jim's pranks are awesome.
the_ANGRY_fillipino - Thanks for the tip! I am slowly picking it up back again and hopefullly this thread will be filled with more of my studies. Yea, i think losing my pencil is a good sign i'm sleepy. @_@ Anyway i think i work better when i'm fresh and awake
StarbonesCoffin - I think anatomy is like one of the most important things in drawing so it should be consistently practised.
FORGIVE ME O LORD OF CONCEPTART FOR I HAVE SINNED.
I have not been drawing or painting much since the last time i posted.
Aside from having so much work, my grandpa passed away and my cat died too just a week after.
http://conceptart.org/forums/showpos...postcount=7347 <----a pic of my dearest kitty i uploaded before.
I'm still existing, but i'm progressing slowly.
