Ok, so here is an update with some of my life drawings since christmas.
Haven't had that much chance to do life drawing yet this year, so you'll probably see that most of these were done within the space of a couple of weeks.
Vaious media used, pencil, pen, inks and charcoal i think; and all done from life. I forgot to make note on some of them, but generally these were all done between 2 and 5 minutes:
Apologies for the quality, i dont have access to a scanner, so i had to photograph these and the light was poor.
Hope you like...
I've never bothered with weights ect. But now that Im taking this a little more seriously. I might just do so
All gorgeous work, keep goin!
Did a quick scribble on a little post-it note the other day coz my girlfriend had left at least 2 inches of clean post-it underneath her work notes that needed to be exploited. The post-it went into my pocket and i found it again today and decided to paint it up quickly in photoshop coz ive got far too much work to do and needed something to stop me doing it

I love your environment concepts. Are those first three done in pencil? If so, how long did it take you to draw those?
Thanks Ruben. As to your question, no, all the environments here have been done using Photoshop. A couple of them started life as small thumbnails in my sketchbook, but bear little relation to the end product now.
In case you still want to know about time, the environment sketches took around 2 hours each, with the matte painting coming in a lot higher than that, not sure exactly how long on that so far though, sorry.
Here is one more quick sketch for today. As a quick note, thanks a bunch for all the stars people, I made it up to 5 for a while, and while it was shortlived, ill keep striving to produce better quality work this way, so its all good
B E A utiful
great work Nick as always! keep it up
loving the life drawings
and the post-it note, pure genius hehe
Testing some custom brushes that I downloaded from I-NetGraFX. So far i love em!
like your environment paintings and especially your value studies a lot mate - I should say, please continue, but If I see your last post, I'd rather think to myself, I should better be making that as well ^^
So keep it up (that fits best I think :p )
