like your use of light on the digital enviros a lot especially that icy looking effort at the top, got some lovely limpidness about it, and the shock of green in blue in EOW 123.
my only word of advice would be to pay more attention to head anatomy, it seems to be your main failing in character and portrait work, get some books if necessary, I know they helped me.

Those figures in your sketchbook look very nice man. The landscapes I always dig . For those figures you did from imagination, take the time to think about how the masses of the body move in those poses, you need to start drawing in the kind of stuff that's already in the sketchbook figures- No wooden torsos! Proportions need some work as well, but that'll come with practice. Loomisloomisloomis!
young paddy1: Thanks, man. Great advice. I've been slacking off on anatomy studies lately, so I'd better dive back into them.
Sidharth Chaturvedi: Thanks for the push towards better figures. Gotta break out the anatomy books and do some more study. I constantly realize how little I know. Thanks again!
Aaaaand... Happy New Year, everyone! 2010 is gonna be pretty awesome. I'm looking forward to what it has in store. Let's start out with a little figure doodle. One of Jon Schindehette's crits on my portfolio was a lack of really dynamic poses.
Another figurative value study doodad thingy.
More value work. Fairly relaxing when you don't have to worry about color.
Art time! Been doing some traditional pieces lately, so here's what I've got to show.
This is a WIP that I've got right now. Trying a bit of a different approach than I've been doing lately. It's for the latest challenge over on ArtOrder.
School is starting back up, and it's already looking to be a great year. Some good things in store, I'm sure.
First assignment for Digital Drawing is a self portrait. Using a mirror, about 2.5 hours.
Next up is a "conceptual" self-portrait for class. Should creep out my classmates fairly well.
Quick still life in class today. About 2 hours.
Really nice updates, man. I like your SPs, the one using a mirror have a really nice value, and the conceptual one is just striking. I enjoy those traditional enviros too. Keep it up, man
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.
Hopefully going to get some traditional sketchbook work I've done lately uploaded onto here.
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!
Your works are very dynamic & inspiring, i really feel like i'm in some awesome (& v. original) fantasy world.
Which is damn positive! Keep it up dude, youre doing great!
