    lookin' good. i recommend paying careful attention to proportions when you do these longer studies. maybe try doing a simple block-in of the model and his/her proportions before you get into the detail. also, try and draw the light/shadow shapes before you put tone down and keep the values simple. squinting helps with this. just keep chipping away at it. i can see you've improved.

    Nice anatomy/figure studies so far!

    I definitely agree with the previous poster about blocking things in roughly first, though. On your left figure, first image in your last post, for example, the legs are a little short proportionally, and that's a lot easier to change when you're not already locked in. Don't be afraid to change around the bigger forms before you work your way to the details!

    A quickie from sketch crawl yesterday.

    There can never be too much sketching. =D

    namechange->Thanks man! I definitely see what you mean. Proportion is one of my most problematic problems.

    Amarok->Thanks! Yeah, I have to keep on that. I usually have to kick myself a little to get myself to double/triple check and change something.

    Here's some of today's work. I was keeping proportion in mind with these and roughly blocking in stuff helped epically, but I'm sure there are still mistakes.
    The two less developed ones are 1 hour poses, the one on the far left I took about 3 hours with. . .

    Let me know what you think.

    Back to fun-ness.

    This is pretty much the reason I didn't update this in a while. SO, go check it out. My gallery won't be quite that deserted after I get more slides taken of my more recent stuff.


    And I made this, too.

    Hey thanks for your input.
    You have a decent command of value in your figure drawings but I would keep working on anatomy. Maybe work at a bigger size?

    Some figure paintings from today. I'm a little rusty, but hopefully that will cure itself. Photo credit goes to www.lockstock.deviantart.com

    I spent a lot of time revamping my website between last post and now and I think it's almost there. More drawings to come!

    Thanks wilkerson! Yeah, those drawings are minuscule. About 5-6 inches tall I think. . I'll try some big ones though.

    Peace dudes.

    I've been keeping myself busy. .mostly with futilely trying to find a job. I am now one of those people who has to check their e-mail 14-30 times per day.

    Anyways, I'm still doin figure studies and I started some character design sheets to help sell myself.
    Yup, that's right.

    It's going to be an archer of some kind. Just milling through some ideas right now. Any suggestions? C&C?

    Clean3d --> Thanks! Bridgman's a beast!
    More studies! I still need some more work with putting figures in perspective but I've gotta move on for a bit. Did some hands today, too.

    What a week! Almost a full week without access to the internet and it feels like I just woke up only to realize that two years of my life went by unnoticed.
    It's really not that depressing.
    Really. The most it left me with is a hankerin' for some posemaniacs.

    But anyways, I've been keeping busy.

    ohhhh, some of your works really impress.

    Your anatomy works are very neat.
    I especially like when you capture instant poses of people or just poses we are not used to seeing)
    sometimes you show proportions a little distorted - but this is all about practice!
    Great sketch book! you are a talent!

    SusanMart-->Thanks a lot! Proportion has always been a beast I've had to tangle with.

    Work from the last couple of days-->Some portraits from the dentist waiting room and some Loomis studies. I also spent a crap load of time today revamping the sketchbook part of my website which everyone should go see. But at any rate, here are some pictures.

    Almost forgot I started forging my way into landscapes unknown from the comfort of my basement. Landscapes are an entirely new concept to me so C&C would be great! This one was a 1hr sitting which I plan on doing as many as I can in the near future to improve the best I can.
