    woah photos are sweet, love it
    and I think you are simplifying the skin too much in your pencil renders, look at some photos or real life examples and skin will seem a lot more complex with subtle value changes every bit
    just something to look out for

    jordyskateboardy, You are to kind man. I need to get out more often so I can take more photos. Thanks for checking out my book.

    lilnebo, Hehe, there is nothing to it really. What ever catches your eye take a few pictures of it from different angles and hope for the best. Lots of experimenting and a strong light source helps. I have a cheap digital camera to Olympus Fe-210. I will defiantly try to draw from life every day. Ill get a little sketchbook from the dollar store for that. Thanks I hope you're doing well.

    jedininjaman. I am glad you like them. Thanks for the crits man I will try to pay more attention to the delicate value shifts. Moreeee studyssss wooo...

    Michael, How are you doing man? I see every thing is going strong on your end. I heard the dvd is going to be out soon, Ill have to pick up a copy.

    I will try to drop by every body sketch book when I have a chance. it's hard to do with Dial up though with every one being so image heavy witch is a good thing.


    A fat lady. I have to work on it some more, but I thought I would post. A screen grab from the Oc session I had with Pie the other day. My scanner did not pick up the lightest values

    i dig it all, again, haha.

    i think you could get a better scan of the chubby, or just adjust the levels and crop it abit. i dig your rendering, im going to have to watch you do some of these on OC =D

    Do not, ever, under any circumstances, not have fun.

    Not to happy with what I have so far. I am going to have to play around with my scanner because It's not picking up a lot of the values. I think the settings are set to only pick mid tones out. . Haha I croped the legs/feet off one. I will have to fix them and some other problems.

    Work in progress.

    Edit. I played around with scanning last night. mmm this looks a little better.

    i really like the way you handled the values in the digi face paint in post 34, your pencil studies are also looking a little bit lovely.

    keep going man, thanks for sharing.

    DannySketch: Thanks a ton Danny. Glad you liked that little scribble.

    paran0id: I am having real trouble with the bottom legs not quite understanding the foreshortening but it's getting there. Here is some sketches for you.

    Doodling away. I am renovating my mothers kitchen right now and she wants a huge ass apple tree painted on one of the walls. Once I finish I might take some pictures.

    Good work! You're definitely on the right track with all these studies, and it fees like you are learning from every piece that you do.

    For your figure work, I would try to solidify forms more that concentrated on pretty rendering. It looks nice, but gives no real impression that you understand the structure underneath. Maybe it would help you to find some reference to work off of that has stronger light and shadow patterns, and you cna explore how shadow shapes help explain the figure.

    Also keep in mind that checking the relationships/proportions of the figure while you're drawing. I always forget what I'm doing half way through, and before you know it, I have a tiny head on a huge torso.

    Keep it up.

    Joce: You're doing good so far man keep up the good work. Thanks for dropping by.

    PieMonster: Hurry Get on Hamachi. I am on right now Thanks man.

    realextension: hey man. Thanks for the kind words. I might do a few studies from the photos I took but probably not. The photography is more of a time killer if I am going for hikes or walking around. I try to bring the camera with me where ever I go.

    Carbono: Glad you think so mate. Working hard to get my anatomy and hatching up there. Thanks.

    thespianmonsalvo: They are far from amazing thanks though. I still have a long ways to go.

    QETALIVAN: I wish I was able to take photographs when it was raining but my camera would of been ruined. The storm was pretty cool. Washed away are road and flooded are basement. hah.

    jigokuen: Yeah man, defiantly starting to pick up more now that I am drawing every day. Things become clearer, and you end up picking subtle things up well drawing and looking at reference. I think it also has a lot to due with the fact that I am observing way more and trying to make sense of what I am drawing. I agree man, I dunno why I always pick reference with crappy lighting and weak shadows. I could add my own interpretation to the drawing but right now I am trying to keep as close to the reference as possible but soon ill break free of that habit. Ha-ha, proportions are funny, I'm really working hard on them. Thanks for taking the time to crit man.



    Couple quick things this morning. Been playing around with my sleep schedule less sleep more drawing kinda thing.

    Man! your photography. Jesus H Christ!

    It has such Nostalgic dementia to it. Like Tarkowsky's Work. The power of the light invading the rottening environments. Incredibly powerful.

    On your Sketching work, It lacks the light invading it. I can see only the off focus dark areas applied and the Subtly colorful lights missing. It seems to me you stop your sketches before applying the final pass of central focal point and sharp light.

    Dont get me wrong, I love what you are saying in these 2 pages, but you are loud and clear with the photos and only whispering in your sketches.

    Keep it up man

    Mario

    seth, I have a rule I follow, maybe it will help you too in your difficulties with the proportions: first I paint the silhouette in just one color (could be gray) and usually this part is very important for me and I don't start the color/value process until the silhouette fills natural. if you have this right, the rest is much easier as you only put colors in this area. a secondary step could be to cover only the major values first. leave the blending to the end, or (like in my case ) don't worry about it too much. the artists I admire the most are those who are using few strokes of value and manage to express in a few strokes what others blend for hours. and I'm sure this will be useful later when we'll stop using refs

    I'm diggin on the front on one, the eyes are a tad creepy...alien, in a good way-
    sleep deprivation makes for an interesting experiment in perception and control-
    I think it helps with colour tho...everything tends to be a bit like when your on something...

    Do you take photos of yourself, and the draw those for the self portraits? The values seem a little off on those last few, but really amazing work dude. How do you set up/sit for your self portraits? I'm never sure how to arrange my tablet/monitor/mirror.

    Earendil: For the second portrait I took a picture. Right now I have a mirror right in front of me and my monitor off to the side then I put a pillow in my lap with my tablet. I took a picture to show you. Heh, you got me camera happy and I took a few more pictures. Thanks for dropping by.

    humanNature6115: Thanks mate, I'm glad you like them. That is quite the sketchbook title.

    PieMonster: Woooo, glad you like them man. You had me inspired to do a couple sp's. Get posting...

    tor: Why hello there. It's amazing what can come out of you when you're deprived of sleep. I think in a couple more Months I might start to learn color but right now I am really trying to focus on Values. Taking little baby steps. Thanks for checking out my Sketchbook.

    realextension: Wow, thanks man. Ill give your technique a whirl and see how it works. Yeah brush economy is some thing I am really working on. Robogabo has it down to a science.

    marioucci: That was a huge compliment my friend thank you. I will really try to push my lighting from here on in. Maybe this new piece is a start?

    A couple pictures, and errr some monster thingy.

    Joce: It really depends on the subject matter and how I feel. Most time's I start off with the sketch then throw a wash of gray over, Build my values up and pick out my highlights. Other times, I will start with a huge brush and just throw things down real quick, with a light color then define it from there. Lots of experimenting going on. I am still at that stage where I am trying to find what works best for me. Thanks for dropping by.

    Some quick Sp sort of thing wip?

    Nice Bridgeman studies!
    For the last one: The left (for us) cheek is much wider than the other, and the nose is too small. Other than that, it's nice.
    Keep it up man!
