Mrs. Spot, you are starting to go really wild with these handsome man
studies. I can feel Django getting unchained within him. But if you paint
a sample when he turns his pistol directly toward me, then I will have to
duck. Or to capitulate suddenly. Without any emotions.
Awesome figure studies. Very dynamic poses, Love it!
sense of purpose
I like the figure studies. No floppy poses here! The thighs look a little long in a couple of them, though.

They probably are. I think the camera is a bit low exaggerating it.
Here's another one
I think these are really good. You've got some great subjects, and the paintings are really well defined, or become so.
Thanks - I'm finding them pretty good for muscle study - more fun than just drawing them, although I do that on scraps as well.
Okay it was pointed out that I'd got some muscles wrong, so I've tried to correct them.
You made me to google up Braque Mrs.Spot. My mother saw it and I had to take my medicines now.
Braque was a rebel in his soul, who would chop down a bunch of trees with a chaingun, if he would
ever get a chance to act in the predator movie with schwarzenegger. But he didn’t get the chance,
to act, and because of that he had to paint. Patiently all his life. And his mother was forcing him
to wash his hands before every meal. Such a terror without any chain gun and chain saw.
Your paintings are getting stronger and stronger, and this young lad that you are painting have some
tormented undisputed invincibility in him. While he is hunting last Christmas flies with his magic
wand,in a darkened room his tool is getting larger and heavier, without any hesitation. You are releasing some negative
energy through these oils, which few of them understands Mrs. Spot. And you are getting stronger at
the same time.
LP - you are nuts, but I like it that way.
Went life drawing today and drew a female.
Your stuff is amazing. I like the foreshortening on that knee, that couldn't have been easy. You have a real knack for drawing people in a way that looks natural, like the person there is about to step out of the page, all that hard work's really paying off. No crit, just keep it up.
Thanks. Been doing anatomy studies today and then decided to play with my life drawing from yesterday
Forgot to put the earlier study in - I have moved on to the muscles, but this was a bit of fun - hate boring studies
Awesome anatomy and like that Gif
Crits and help of any kind are more than welcome!
The gift animation is pretty faaaaaast,.......makes me dizzzzy.I just wanted to say that they are taking over again,
my sketchbook they are everywhere!
Nice male, I wonder about etsy does it work for you a lot of people
have it here.
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.
I adore your figure studies! =]
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
Awesome studies : D Your values and colors look really good. I got nothing to crit now, but I'll be back to check things soon : ) Keep this up!

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.
Looks like a good start there!
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

when did you manage to paint that sketch?
I like it. Is this digital?
