    No dwardo, they're in PhotoPlus (similar to PhotoShop). I have X2, X3 is already out and they're working on X4. They also want my input for what I would like to see in the program. They're still a small company, but very friendly and helpful.

    Thanks Nightblue. Overlaying it was just a bit of fun. When I was sketching it out, it was the rhythm and overall shape I was interested in and of course trying to get the texture. I sort of like the background plainer - more like a photo booth.

    Did some more life drawing from Channel 4 series, but used the rewind button a few times as the poses were very short.

    Thank you for your comment in my sketchbook! Nice that you're looking often in there

    I like your last drawings! The second and the last one are really nice!
    Do more of them, they will really bring you forward.

    Hope you enjoy ;D

    Id like to see the oil painting you for the did amateur dramatic production if you still have it. It may help compare the two, and see what you are strong at.
    Do keep going with the master study.
    The life drawings are looking good, they seem to jump forward quite a bit on page 18.

    I'm not actually sure I have. It'll be in the attic if I do, but it's too cold to venture there at the moment.

    Another couple of my buttons. There is just a couple more to go before my friend puts his site together.

    Your life drawings were better than mine, though i only did them as short version. Thanks so much for the link its dead good. Will go back to them probably in a week or two and have another go.

    The button animals look good. Maybe a little more contrast of dark shadows might make them pop just a tiny bit more.

    Still getting to grips with values but they'll do for their purpose.

    Last two done today. The chameleon looks really grumpy.

    The buttons look great. I actually like the goldfish the most.

    I accidentally deleted the goldfish vector drawing. After kicking myself, I started on another Master Copy of one of my favourite pictures. He needs a nose job I know. This will be slower as I have other things to do than art.

    Edit: I wrote kinking instead of kicking. Freudian slip

    Nice studies. But I think you need to emphasize the form a bit more with your strokes. Right now they appear to be pretty random. If you follow the form while doing your hatching/scribblish thing i think it will look better and teach you more about the form as well.

    Sometimes you have to go backwards to go forward. It's all part and parcel of learning.

    I like the new painting. Who is the painter? I think it will help to be more careful with the lines you place.

    hope work will be kinder on your drawing time. I like your studys. try nailing the basic form and proportions using 3 values then move on to more when finishing up. Its important to nail shape early. Keep up the good work.
    Take care.

    It's Frederick Sweerts - Boy in a Turban with a Posy. Beautiful picture. When I saw it, I could hardly leave the exhibition (I think it's in the Wallace Collection) and went back to it a number of times. Somewhere (again in the attic) I've got a poster of it, whicj would help as I can only find smallish pictures of it on the net.

    Redid the face entirely as I wasn't happy with it. He needs to look sadder and the mouth should be redder, but it's a lot closer.

    I'm sorry I haven't posted here in a while, school hasn't been kind to me either. That masters copy is going swimmingly. As always, I love your buttons, especially that Ryukin goldfish, but that's just because I'm a sucker for goldfish. Good luck!

    -When the buttons are all finished, can we please get an all-in-1 post?
    -"He needs to look sadder" - Droopier left eye (his, always) eyebrow less arched.
    -How many studies are you taking on? - please don't burn yourself out early in the year.
    A great start to the year, no doubt.

    (No images yet - weather is too fine or too hot. I'll wake up and come around sooner or later. )

    (nice turtle, the highlights and the turning value does it for me)

    Yeah, It is looking pretty good. Sweert's painting appear to me not quite so vibrant. I'm having a guess, but a shade of green for the background to make the red on the flowers and the face to have more attention.

    I done as much as I'm going to on it. Think he looks more pissed off than sad. Posting the picture I was working from at the size I found it.
