Good work dude ! your studies looks great ! And you use colors very well ! I agree with fraz, try to blend it more it will look bettet ! Anyway, nice to have you in the group ! Keep it up
Fraz: Yeah I didn't realise that till I looked from a distance, thanks for pointing that out. I'll probably try to do something more photo realistic for my next paint
Walid: Thanks man
Just a few torso bridgeman studies, tomorrow I don't have work so I should do a lot more.
Looking good man. The bottom right one looks skewed, however everyone does that now and again. Keep up the good work, just remember to do some imaginative stuff to see if you are remembering anything.
I nearly missed the ‘and’, and thought you were referring to yourself when you wrote ‘a little plasticine monster head which is 4 cm big’. Pretty good SP even if you have a squished nose.
On your pencil drawings, if you make the outline very feint and then shade up to it, you might get even better results.
Fraz's Cheers, yeah I tried some imagination stuff today but not much, I have allllllllot of work to do in this respect
Black Spotlol plasticine monster, maybe more appropriately sexy beast . I'll keep in mind your tip, these studies are really helping me with line control, cheers
bigfooTrooper Thanks man.
Here is just some more bridgman studies and my pathetic attempt at IIIIIIIMMMMMMMAGGGGGGINATIONnnnn.
Yeah, you need to take on board what you are drawing from bridgman and be able to use it, or else you are just copying! Try more stuff from imagination and it should force you to learn more.
Keep working from imagination, it will comes, Try to also understand shapes, volumes of body part, instead of copying bridgman studies ! Maybe this site will help you : http://www.angelfire.com/art3/kchendemos/. And I really wanna see more creative stuff, like enviros, chara design, vehicles, weapons, ... Keep at it !
bigfooTrooper Thanks man
Fraz Yeah I really need to, did a few imagination figures this time, thanks for the tip
Lilnebo Ditto, Thanks
Walid D Cheers for the link, I will start doing creative stuff soon starting with the challenge should be good fun.
Did a few studies and all the figures are done from the mind. Tomorrow I dont think I can do any drawings because I'm working, then straight after I'm having a big Christmas eve dinner but I'll try and make the effort in the morning before work to draw.
Cool. Nice feet studies, I need to do them too!
One thing about your drawing as a whole, try to get some structure and 3d-ness to them. Right now they look quite flat and have no planes.
Remember the forms, that is what studies are there for.
It is a 3d object, treat it as one. Particularily on your last page, you need to pay more attention to the rotation instead of just squishing in the features (pecks mainly) as that is mainly why it looks flat.
Pay attention to the width of the arms and legs compared to the torso.
I dunno if you are, but read bridgman as you are going along. He talks about the hips ribcage and head and how they are solid, and that they are the whole reason that figures react the way that they do.
Sorry if I seem harsh or anything negative, just trying to pass along info that I have learned.
Fraz Yeah man thanks, its not harsh at all it helps me look at my errors more closely and yeah i really need to work on my 3d'ness.
Heres a study of a portrait of Gustov Klimpt and 3/10 thumbnails for the ssg challenge, the third one really really bothers me, though i dont know why. Merry Christmas everyone

bigFootrooper: Thanks man, yeah I will be choosing that one for my paint.
Ok here are all my thumbnails for the challenge, I think ill choose the first one and the first one on the second row. Also I found it really hard to draw legs so I squeezed in a bit of leg studies before work.
Im not sure if I will be able to finish both characters before the deadline at 8 am tomorrow.
