    the "old masters" got the way they did because they drew from their daily lives. A woman churning butter might now be a woman talking on her cellphone waiting for a bus.. If you use the talent you have to capture what you see every day I think it would be interesting

    Ahh, I remember this one from Markos WS. Looks good! You should add some highlights at his head, shoulder, perhaps a small one at his blade too. :chug:

    hi Dan!

    i remember that one too. i liked your scetch of it a bit more, but that might be because it isn't finished yet.
    i like your scetchbook! their are a lot of usefull training-studies in it. i'll try that lightning-thing with only 3 values, too. good idea to get a basic understanding of lights and shadows!

    keep it up! :chug:

    alex

    anything beats nothing... sometimes...

    i´m not pleased with the outcome given how long i worked especially on the second one.
    the biggest problem was that the paper was so damn textured, that even with a staedtler-EE pencil there was no way to get real dark yet smooth areas.


    lol they look like dirty ass thumbnails tho i worked in A3....

    haha nope but ever since i´ve read...

    "While growing up on Long Island, I guess I was
    around ten or eleven years old, my cousin Ellie
    and her husband Frank would often visit us to
    enjoy the pool and a fun backyard barbecue.
    They would bring their children for us to play
    with while they lounged. The one thing that
    caught my eye was Uncle Frank, as I called
    him, reclining with a large pad on his lap
    drawing away, always while chatting with the
    other adults. I would find myself frequently
    looking over his shoulder only to find that
    what he was drawing with no reference was,
    Al Capp’s syndicated newspaper
    column, ”Little Abner.” Little did I know the
    influence he would have in my life in less
    than a decade. To this I say, ”Thanks for
    being there Frank Frazetta.” "


    ...a short bio of ken kelly i can´t help but think of "uncle frank"

    Hi Dan, very good Update my friend!
    Your knowledge of anatomy is getting better and better. The face on the first page and bs004 are the best of them. Be careful with your proportions (length of the arms etc,) and the balance between the left and the right side of the body.

    On with the show!
