    Hey, thanks for commenting on my sketchbook, man.

    You've got some really nice sketches here. I really like your line in the 5th batch of images you posted. It has a delicate and fleshy look to it.

    Keep posting man. I wanna see more of what you can do.

    Check out my sketchbook.

    Hey - thanks for kind words on my sketchbook! I took a look at your work - there is some really great stuff there. I love the draftsmanship, and the variety of all your mark making - really strong and really great to see. You're looking at some of the right people too - I like the lautrec study you have posted - I'm assuming thats him - (then again maybe Van Gogh or Picasso?). Check out Topolski and Daumier as well and El Greco. Don't worry about having things be perfect (like scribbling a drawing out and writing crap over it) - you have some great qualities going when you just draw and let it rip! I look forward to seeing more.

    The digital stuff you are adding to the sketches is working pretty well. Things like this can frequently read poorly, but yours looks almost like gouache. You might try using the real thing, and replicate the digital.

    You've got some pretty awesome art and stylization going on here. The latest sketch page feels really ... really... damn, what's the word... classy? Nah, that's not quite it... well, it's a good thing anyhow. The paints are also pretty awesome to behold. I hope to one day get to a point like that, but too many basics to cover.

    I guess the only thing I could even slightly offer a crit on is the painting in post 33. The hand, while lit more intensely, still kind of reads close to the same plane/depth as the head. It doesn't really seem to be reaching out at you, or even halfway. But maybe it's just me. Good luck and keep kicking ass.

    Finally got around to looking at your SB, Malpanka. I like the figure reaching out to the viewer, and I found your self-portrait very interesting because of the skew from your camera.

    Thanks again for the advice!

    Alright malpanka, I took a look through your SB, and I can honestly say I'm not sure why you chose me for a mentor, since you're really on your way here. Hopefully I can help out though

    What I notice is some sporadic work, some imaginative, some referenced. I guess the only thing we can do is make sure we cover our bases. The activities will be done on a weekly basis; the 'manditory' activity I give won't take up the whole week, allowing for free study as well as doodling and creating finished works. I see you've done an anatomy study in the form of drawing a body-builder, but I think we need to get more specific. So here I present;

    This week's activity

    Part 1 of 3 anatomy study; the torso

    Before covering things like value, mechanics, nature etc, we should cover anatomy. Why try to put accurate values on potentially inaccurate anatomy? No amount of value-work or colour-work will save inaccurate line-work, and no amount of nicely rendered nature scenes or cool spaceships will help characters with bad anatomy.

    So this will be a 3 part series on muscles: week 1 - the torso, week 2 - the arms, week 3 - the legs. The studies contain two separate parts: 1: study the muscles by direct copy from muscle diagrams and 2: draw accurate muscles on models drawn from reference. The first part will help develop your sense of the different muscles, where they attach and their basic form. The second part is more or less practical application; finding out how muscles work in different positions.

    Part 1 - Here are several diagrams detailing the human torso. Along with part 2, these should be copied within a week or so;

    Trunk Front
    Trunk Back
    Trunk interior

    Part 2 - After copying these, now comes the practical application portion. What I would like you to do is select at least 2 pictures featuring the bare, human torso. If you're feeling ambitious, you could select 4; one from the male front, one for the male back, and the same for the female torso. 2 should be enough though, just try to make sure they aren't from the same angle (if you would like I could select a few for you)

    After you have them selected, draw these torsos as if they were flayed, as if you could clearly see the muscles as per the diagrams. Use the diagrams (and any other material) as reference. Here is an example of what I mean (the actual sketch is on the top left, overlayed onto my ref.)



    So to recap - sketches of those 3 diagrams (don't worry too much about rendering, but try to show the form of the muscles. for the interior, you don't have to draw every single bone, only the ones connecting to the muscle for placement) and at least 2 flayed torsos.

    We also discussed about what to 'focus on' if you chose to do more than those studies. As far as I'm concerned those studies would be pretty good for the week, but if you must, try drawing some torsos from imagination in different positions, some defined, some less defined. If you find yourself stuck or see something weird happening, refer back to the torso diagrams.

    So that's about it. One more thing though - The positive aspect of doing these right in your sb is that you only have to post your work once and I can crit your studies and everything else right here. The bad thing is maybe you don't want all this clutter in here. If so, let me know and I'll create a new thread in the mentor section and delete this post.

    Good luck and if you have any questions just ask
