    Nice work! I think you need to do some anatomy and gestural studies though. The pose on that last character looks a bit stiff and veeeeeery slightly off balance like he's tilted to the right. Your work is looking great though, keep it up

    Nice update yet again Jamie Your colors are really looking tight. One crit I have is with the sword on the front of your most recent character's chest: it seems to be wrapping around the body as if it was curved. Maybe it's just to my eyes though. Perhaps some drop shadows might help. As always keep watching those underlying forms and hit us up with an update soon!

    Very inspirational sketchbook dude. I think you should go back take some of the first imaginative sketches and take them idea's maybe re-gesture some of your choice possibly fighting turn it into an epic scene and i guarentee you will be happy with your outcome. all your studys are coming on great and use them as u intended at the beginning. Remember the spark in your art, turn it into a thick flame of awesomeness

    I hope to be the best i can be... nothing less

    Yeah dude no need to be so hard on yourself! You are producing some awesome stuff and figure drawing from your mind is one of the hardest topics in art! Keep on working away and I'm sure that eventually it will become second nature. I like the book commission picture, although I would say one thing:

    Is that hump on his back supposed to be central or leaning slightly to (our) left? Just because of the way his shoulders are aligned it gives the impression its off-centre...

    great update really like the values in the FF movie study -

    and i agree with my previous posters - you gotta have more faith in what you do - you cranked out some awesome stuff and you wouldnt draw at all if you had not joy with it. and if you are struggling with a subject it means that you are studyng exactley the right subject.

    keep it up man

    ps. here are some nice photorefs for gesture drawing - http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com/...lassical-nudes

    Millions of female nudes on the internet but if you are looking for male anatomy you are screwed -______-

    Nice work man! It's okay to use refs for your work...even the best artists out there do it. Knowing anatomy helps a great deal though...that way you don't have to depend on what's already there. Keep at it

    Dude I feel your frustration. Everyone goes through a block or two and it sucks ass but you just gotta keep pushing. I remember Bobby Chiu saying something like if you're frustrated, that's good because a breakthrough is just around the corner. Weather the storm, my friend!

    Anyway, nice update Jamie. You can do stuff from mind so don't feel guilty about reffing shit and sitting poses are hard anyway. And IMO, the abomination is pretty cool but if you feel it's cheesy maybe try new things and experiment. Maybe read up on art history, take a walk, or watch a new movie, and come back to the drawing board and see if you come up with some cool things! Good luck, and just have fun

    Yeah bro, Bobby has it right there, you are near the breakthrough, there is something which needs to happen to tip you over. Krato is probably right, maybe reason you can't draw some things directly from your mind is that you need key bits of information which just aren't vivid enough in your memory, it may be time to roll up the sleeves and study on those things.

    Have fun with your next studies bro! =)

    You've improved a lot since the last time I checked your sb. Really... leaps! And you've been consistent, unlike myself, heh. If you're feeling badly blocked it might be time to relax a bit, scribble, doodle and just have fun drawing instead of trying to force finished pieces or studies.

    simple as this. the more you draw the better you get. the better you get, the more you realize you need to draw more!

    be happy you can use reference! reference is a very good tool that all good artists use sometimes all the time. to get that realistic gesture and feel of a piece, artist have to use real life! some have photographic memory and others do not (like me). so the ones that don't have to memorize or constantly draw things over and over again to get it imprinted into our minds. then we can draw things without reference.

    though with that piece in the last post of the girl and her ipod... it's very good. you threw your colors into it, your flare, what you are, and the reference only gave you a building block to start from. don't be discouraged, embrace the reference and use it to your liking. change things in it that appeal to you more than what you have learned.

    once you've mastered the basic foundations of art, you can then mold them into your liking. then breaking the rules and revolutionizing other peoples ideas and ways of thinking. that's what we all do as artists. we give people visual stimulation for their everyday boring lives. we give them something to hope for. we bring their dreams to life. we change the world around filling it with our sense of beauty, feeling, and perception!

    go go go, draw draw draw! and never be discouraged enough to give up! ;]

    great progress my 505 brotha. really dig the final fantasy still study. regarding your situation right now, i know you may not be enjoying the stuff you're producing for your jobs at the moment, but remember why you love to draw in the first place.. right? like matt above me said, it's okay to use reference. in my opinion, it is in no way or form of cheating. no one is perfect and not many artists can memorize the anatomy of the human body inch from inch. though like others have said, it is good to know the foundations/basics which i'm sure you're getting a lot of.

    just keep on producing jamie! looking forward to more of your future success~

    Very inspiring sketchbook Jamie, how do all those different ideas fit inside your head!? You can really see tons of improvements aswell.

    No crits (mostly because I can't find anything to crit :|), just keep drawing.

    ya I have trouble with my imagination as well >.>

    I suck completely at painting in colour in Digital for some reason. Oil painting's no problem but for some reason I just goof in digital. I also suck at drawing people from my head as well >.>

    So remember even if you suck there is always someone worse! Cheers me up sometimes

    try doing more gesture drawings? I'm trying that. Hopefully it'll make it easier to get posses from my head

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    Using reference is not always frowned on. I really should find Elwell's thread on it, but its late and I'm tired. I think it's in the tutorial section.

    Blob study needs elbow in the correct place. On the ref'd piece, the shoulders look wide and slightly lacking in form. Not saying anything on the book commission as he might bite me.

    keep on going you! never be too hard on yourself (but never congratulate yourself too much either, I think. because it never gets, 'easy', really. you just have to do it because you love it. and you obviously do!)

    it's that difficult line. and you will improve! you have improved! go out into the world and take some photos of stuff, or sit and try imagining how things fit together (that's something I like to do, when I get worked up over drawing. just sit and deconstruct houses into bits in my mind, like an exploded diagram!)

    there's nothing stopping you
