    witcrack: Thanks, man! Gotta keep pushing, pushing, pushing my work. Must... become... professional!

    Quick end-of-the-week doodle. Realized I hadn't done any scruffy work in a long time, so I thought it's time for a change of pace.

    Your off to a good start, more structure, anatomy, and compositional exercises will help you out tremendously, and don't be afraid to use reference material.

    Not sure why I haven't looked at your sketchbook before, but you have some great stuff here. You have a good sense of shape and I like the line quality of your figure drawings. I would say that the main issue right now is for you to refine your anatomy. The live figure studies are great practice, and learning to build the figure from the ground up with Loomis or Vilppu or such is great for coming up with figures from imagination.

    Some super cool stuff in here. Ditto to Liffey, it's odd that I've never checked out your sketchbook before now. I love that last batch of traditional stuff. It's all looking nice. Keep on trucking!

    mike butkus: Thanks! Definitely agree with the need for more anatomy/structure. I'm thinking it's my biggest weakness at the moment.

    Liffey: Thanks for looking. I'll get on some anatomy studies here soon. I guess I've gotten distracted by studying other things that I've forgotten to strengthen my anatomy with everything else.

    Swampdigger: Guess I just have an invisible sketchbook here. Thanks for taking a look.

    Surion: Thanks! Gotta love the encouragement.

    Where's that batch-uploader when you really need it?

    Also keeping a sketchbook of small gouache thumbnails. Fun working out composition and values like this.

    NickyBeats: Thanks, man! I actually transferred away from RISD and am at VCU now. RISD just wasn't worth all that money.

    More art!

    Here's a couple paintings I did in my figure painting class. Forgive the shoddy photos... we wipe out our paintings at the end of class, so I don't really have time to take good photos of them.

    Sick moleskin pages, love them.. really nice line controll with that bolder marker. Also those thumbnail sketches with couache are looking dope, also all that other stuff after and before that, lots of ideas that can be worked on further on those environments. Will check some stuff on previous pages also. All that I can say is keep on going. Btw are there any benefits in working with couache in your option? Just interested, I myself aint really into painting that much.. but I remember that working with couache sucked compared to acrylics (though I haven't discovered neither of those mediums deeply)

    xbert: There's just nothing quite like traditional. I mean, I love the speed I can get with digital, but it never feels/smells the same.

    spark_zero: Gouache (with a G!) is a tricky beast. The quality of marks is a little different than acrylics, and it's a helluva lot easier to get soft edges/transitions in gouache. I honestly haven't used it that much, though. Thanks for looking!

    Today's figure painting in class. About 1.5 hours:
