New stuff is on the last page! GO FOR IT!
Hey, everyone. I'm generally pretty happy with my nose in a sketchbook, and spend a nice bit of time there, but since the end of highschool, I don't really get any feedback on anything I draw in it. I'm now halfway through college and a bit frustrated at the lack of ability [and sketchbook crits] I run into when I go to render scenes from my head. So! Any comments and crits are welcome.
To start it off, here are some recent studies, with stupid doodle auras.
This is part self portrait and part skull study. It's still unfinished. More updates on that later.
A quick sketch I did of one of my friends in an attempt to draw from life more often.
Thanks for lookin'.

Here's and update on the self-port/skull study. Not done yet, but getting closer.
monna-giocanna ->Haha, yeah. I have her book on sketchbooks too. . . .She makes good books. . . Thanks for the compliments as well!

I'm not sure the perspective is correct, but that self portrait skull thing is coming along... nice work so far.

Hokay. This is about as finished as this is going to get, spare a few details.
blenditall: Thanks! Some angles look a bit weird to me too. Most of all the angle that the nose and the nose bone comes out of the skull at in relation to the angle that the cranium has been cut. I'm not sure about it though. It may just look strange.

I did a bit of figure painting to help pull myself out of the minor slump from earlier this week. One's pretty assy. The other a bit less so. The second was done from a photo by mjranum stock . He has some good references and such for anyone looking for some fun stuff to draw or paint by the way. The other was done from a photo from female-anatomy-for-artist.com
I don't have too much history doing any figure painting at all but I do find myself doing that more than most other projects and in longer doses. More likely on the way.

The two figures you did digitally are lookin' pretty good, especially your second one. Watch the left shoulder of the first one. It looks like it's a bit too far forward in her direction.
Also, If you haven't checked out posemaniacs yet, you definitely should because it's a great resource if you wanna do some more figure drawing.
Check out my sketchbook.

BadGeometry->Thanks for pointing that out. I ran into a bunch of problems while I was trying to sketch her. Posemaniacs is good fun! I don't have any paintings like you do but I did do a bunch of sketches. There are some wacked out camera angles in there.
Two more 90 minute studies today. One with lots of clothing, and one without. I need work on both, so it seemed like a good idea. Anyways.
First study of somebody clothed. Done from a photo that's part of the series Jakub Fighting series from human-anatomy-for-artist.com
Second is done from a photo from mjranum stock .
I tried so hard to fix her mouth!

Hey I know that skull!
Good stuff man, keep drawing from that that book, and don't forget life studies as well, one will feed off the other and the magic begins.

brentos8: Haha. I'm trying to take some life drawing classes when I can so I can get actual live models to work from but right now I can't. Unless I do an Alex Grey and start painting and drawing myself nude. I definately agree though. I notice it easily when I'm working through classes.
Two more 90min studies again. Today was a slow day in the land of figure painting so they're a bit busted. mjranum stocks used for both.

Apologies for the lack of updates. I got a bit frustrated about this fabric stuff and let it go for a few days. Here are the few I did though. Any tips on fabric would be magnificent!
90min study from a picture by lisajen stock .
Started as a 90min then turned long pose and eventually died to frustrations. Also a lisajen stock .
60 min study. Done from a photo but right now I completely forget by who. Will update that when I find their page.
Currently I'm working on a personal project which will probably be posted in the Crit Center in a couple weeks.
Until then, peace and hair grease!

I've been working through these since the last week of August and taking my time, too. I'm trying to find a middle ground between the diagramatic drawings from anatomy books and a real world use for them in situations where an understanding is really required to work through obstacles such as foreshortening and differing body types, etc. The original versions with skin are out of Sarah Simblet's anatomy for the artist.
The last two are unfinished but will be finished soon I swear!
This last one I'm also going to be etching and printing. More details on that later!
Also, how do you guys handle processing anatomy?

So! I finished the drawing I decided to use for a print.
I scratched that into the ground and realized that there was a nice bit of extra space on the plate. After messing around with some ideas, I came up with this.
I etched it everything into the plate and started cranking out test prints. I'm planning on aquatinting the background to a dark grey color and lightening up the figures a bit.
This is the cleanest of the bunch. The scanner was a bit to small for the print by about half an inch on the bottom and right side so a bit got hacked off. Apologies. Anyways, here's a detail for those interested.
Thanks for looking!
