    Your oil paintings are getting really good. Love the muscles on the guy sketches, and the faces in your family portraits - really nice expressions in those.

    The life drawing of the girl above could use a bit more observation of how the limbs fit together and sit in perspective, but otherwise it's really nice.

    Great progress since I last visited. Keep pushing!

    Great sb, it's really inspiring to see someone keep at it for almost 5 years. Your anatomy studies are really good, the pose and the model really push some of the muscles out to the surface. Are they from life?
    For your traditional life drawing, I think the background ruins it as it feels rushed, to PS touch ups make it a lot better as the bg becomes a lot less distracting

    Thanks, but the male figures are not from life - an internet friend you kindly posted some great reference stuff to play with.

    Nice to be back and time to update my SB.

    Another male study - this time in colour.

    And a master study I've started - I'm a lot further on, but I have to scrape the face off and start that again.

    Looking good! I'd suggest some studies of value and form, your drawings skills are currently much better than the painting / rendering side. I found some still life studies with a nice light source has helped me quite a bit on that front.

    I do do still lives as well and will do more.

    Master study wasn't going well, so I've stopped it for the moment - I will get back to it, just need to learn more.

    I took a 5 minute line life drawing I did last year and decided to work it up in oils.

    The workshop was a lot of fun. Marc Holmes got us on Sunday to use the model as a starting point for a creature etc. Here's the first one and I'll post more when I've played with the rest. Could you guys tell me if it's too dark as well?

    Woah, that's a cool exercise using a life drawing model as jump off to creatures. :0 I actually heard of a similar exercise especially for costumed life drawing where you would try to draw the "story" of the pose or model where instead of lets say drawing a model with a witches costume you actually draw the witch being portrayed in the pose, it's something that animators use a lot as an exercise and its quite fun as well.

    I really liked those anatomy studies you did it shows a lot of time and effort you've put into it and that is what I guess counts!

    I apologize for not replying on your thread sooner after the really useful advice you have been giving over at my sketchbook, it is just that I feel that I can't really input anything that could be of use. I guess perhaps all I could offer is my encouragement to keep it up and keep going!

    by the way, It looks like for your life drawings you seem to use more traditional methods of drawing the figure like with the use of visual measuring and angles. Have you tried to use more gestural techniques like the ones taught in Vilppu's or Hampton's books or any method to do with abstraction and design of the human figure?

    Hey, hey Black Spot, I was there to and I thought it was very cool that you brought your easel in a shopping trolley, such a good idea! You were easy to spot as you look just like your painting, I was a bit too shy to come and say Hi but I'm glad you enjoyed the event and joined in with the figure drawing creatures.

    A bit too dark, but nice nonetheless
