    I have just realized that one of the sketches in the previous post looks like he is punching another one of the sketches in the face. I find this hilarious.

    More sketches from Dynamic Figure drawing, now with ninety percent more marmalade.

    Oh, and by the way, some of those drawings from last August were referenced from Matt H's work. You can find his sketchbook here http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=144418 He's a bizarrely talented artist, and a great inspiration for me.

    Hey Basham thanks for dropping by my sketchbook, you have some good things going on here, its nice to see you mixing some original stuff in with your studies..which is something I really need to do more of. I have a similar problem with some of my stuff looking to light on the computer, if you want to try darkening it some there is a free program called Gimp you might want to try.

    Actually, Trailblazer, I already have GIMP installed on my computer. I'd like to learn how to make it darker traditionally before resorting to a program, though.

    And I agree, you should work more with original stuff alongside your studies. Studies are very helpful, but to what end if you don't work things out on your own, too? Humans aren't meat cameras.

    Try turning one of your studies into something weird, like I did here.

    Was studying http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com/...ck-4-150686521 When I messed up the proportions. Rather than go back and fix it, I let it skyrocket out of control into this.

    Here is a drawing done for the same friend who requested the Mr Snake Man above, amongst some other drawings from the imagination.

    I'll have to try that sometime, and have you tried using a slightly darker pencil? Maybe a b or 2b.

    Nice new pics by the way I like the muscly dog, dont think I'd want to pick a fight with him.

    Holy hell, Mike Butkus. I really appreciate the encouragement, getting complements from an artist like you is a great motivator. I'll make a habit of going around, complementing aspiring artists when I'm as good as you.

    Trailblazer, that was a fantastic idea. With my line darkness problem more or less solved, I can focus on an even more important issue: Consistency.

    Recently, my art has been ranging from awesomely okay,

    To awesomely bad.

    Attachment 911291

    Anyone have any advice to help me achieve some consistency, here? I've had this problem for a while.

    Most of these were referenced from Sheldon Borenstein or Burne Hogarth.

    Great start! Some very nice figures.

    Try working with charcoal or soft pastels a bit and then go back to penciling. You'll get a better grasp of carving out mass with tones which is a huge part of Hogarth's style in my opinion.

    You definitely picked up on the intense proportion focus Hogarth has ;D.

    I'm not sure how to take that, Blondebeard. I like Hogarth's style, but I don't really want to become a little Hogarth clone.

    Still, I've decided to take your advice. I'm using charcoal exclusively for the rest of this week.

    Still having consistency issues. If anyone has any suggestions as to charcoal techniques I should try or refine, let me know.
