    There's a lot of good stuff. Good quick sketches/poses.

    To summarize the summary of the summary : people are the problem.

    Excellent! Keep up with the posing sketches. Start doing some perspective and shading excercises. I will keep checking back up with you.

    this is my C&C

    :wazzup: :rambo: :fight: :firedevil :love: :afro2: imp: :machinegu









    translation::wazzup,drawing is a battle, when youre drawing tries spit on you show it whos boss, unleash your inner fire but do it with heart, then everything will be cool and pimp but if anything else stands in your way mow them down.[

    Been so busy with classes at the Atelier I haven't had time to update this. I'll try to be more regular during the holiday break. I've been experimenting a bit and trying to stay loose and work on my creativity more. C&C welcome!

    well you certinally have some talent! i prefer the first sketches in pencil to the latset ones, but that's just personal preferance! they're good though. it's quite difficult to see what all of them are though, but otherwise really great work. keep it up!

    Great stuff dzu, like i said before, very inspiriing. Its great to see you go nuts with your sketchbook. At your rate you'll probably have like 5 of those things filled up by the time we go back to school. Have a good christmas and new years and what not, and i'll see you next semester.

    Just one page today. Busy with Holiday stuff. I don't really like the first design and the perspective on the legs and feet/tracks are off.

    let yourself go crazy when designing mechs. Imperfections can turn into improvements if you approach it right.

    I tend to draw a very loose random scribble and then let the lines decide what shapes will be formed. Keep experimenting! mabey try some color!..

    ANother update...

    I've been drawing daily but just too lazy to post. Here's some recent sketchbook concepting for various concept class assigments. C&C welcome!

    This one of many pages concepting out a 21st century X-games champion



    This started as another page for the X-games champion but it evolved into some other stuff.



    This one I was just experimenting...



    And this last page is one of many done for a Sci-Fi western

    Still looking good. Staying loose with your linework I see in sketches. Have you been doing any perspective excercises?

    Keep up the good work! MORE!

    The last 2 compositional ones are really nice. Your faces have come a long way in 9 months. You're on the right track, I think you should push the values some more though (in the compositional ones). Maybe add some interesting shapes, and rehatch the darker areas...or something along those lines. A great start, but it can be pushed alot further I think.

    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    Cool linework! I really dig your looseness! your clean, mechanical stuff is da bomb!
    The only thing I would have to say critwise is that some of the tech/mech-stuff seems a bit twisted out of perspective. It's not much, though. Still looks great!

    Keep 'em coming!
