    Thank you Leo and Dierat! Unfortunately with my deadlines I didn't get to rework the image for the exam, and I'm kinda sick of it by now anyway.

    My apologies to the SSG for not updating. My internet died for a week and I was stuck with no access, and with exams and such, not much to update with...
    But anyway, here's a couple of practice stuffs with anatomy and whatnot. More updates coming soon to a SB near youu!!

    Hi Volchiha, sorry to hear about your internet, though I am glad you weren't just flaking out.

    Good work lately, but your crosshatching is very rough in your last post. The shadows on that skull are all in the right places, but I think you're too quickly going to white for the highlights, and aren't squeezing enough values from that pencil. The rendering of the facial muscles though is really messy and looks like you're pressing too hard on the paper, and like you're trying to convey texture without light information. Maybe loosen up your grip on the pencil? It's hard to know for sure.

    (the last pic shows up corrupted for me, by the way)

    Good luck with your internets.

    Thanks Zweit. I actually can't stand the muscle one, but I thought I'd just put it there for the "record" sort of thing. It's really just doodling, I'll try put some more effort into my drawing and rendering with future studies, so I completely agree with the crit. =)

    Great job on rocking out the studies! I have a tendency to go too dark too fast when trying to render anything I draw. I think we share that issue. How do you hold your pencil? Do you let the weight of it do your initial values?

    Sooo, how did the exams go? I'm glad you're back online.
    Your first mouth study is interestingly unusual. Is it a finger that lifts
    the lower lip? or is it the muscles seen while pouting?
    I'll hop in tonight to continue the general crit, especially on the digitals.
    Ah, and I attach the sketch of yours that I told I'd like to see painted:

    EDIT: Your thread thumbnail doesn't show in the forum index, maybe
    there's something wrong with the image you put? Try fixing it, because
    people tend not to look at sketchbooks without a thumbnail.

    YO!
    You've got a nice SB started here! You've got some cool drawings going. I'm digging the werewolf. If I could make a suggestion, it'd be this: Focus on being more deliberate in your hatching. You have many nice drawings that are pulled down by the scribbly/sloppy quality of the hatching. It's always better to make separate, consecutive lines than to keep the pencil down and scribble back and forth. This is really in the same category as confident lines, in that to some degree it just has to happen over time as you draw more and more, but I think being aware of it gives you the leg-up. This image down here is much better than earlier ones in regard to what I'm talking about, so I know it's in you just waiting to pounce on the page!

    As promised, the late night crits on the digis.
    There's something fun in you SP, I can read the concentration of you
    looking into the mirror and wondering where to strike this and that stroke
    The eyes look misaligned -- but dozens of great masters of the past
    have made the same error in a number of master piece portraits, eh?
    However it is something to watch out in general purpose illustration.
    The orange looks a bit too smooth for an orange - it reminds me more of
    a persimmon - but you came up with a good gleam effect.
    Moar on your next update!

    Just dumping a couple of sketches from reference, trying to get myself out of the pen/pencil comfort zone so thought I'd try something a different. It's a lot harder to make the charcoal smooth without smudging. Gonna try some more later today. =)

    bears! i love the baers!^^
    the above life drawings are very good. what i miss in some other drawings is this feeling of 3d,...maybe try drawing figures using only basic shapes. i know almost everybody talks about this, but i think this really helps, even if it perphaps, doesnt immediately show. anyway, keep on rockin!!

    oh my, a sketchbook update!

    Like these last two drawings. When you're working with charcoal, don't be afraid to smudge it - just come back with your needed eraser and give back some crispness. Then get your charcoal and go over it again. rinse and repeat. To me charcoal always felt a lot more like painting than drawing.

    Love the october 22nd updates - animalia particularly good. Try to translate the confident decisive lines you had there into what you're doing elsewhere - even with other mediums. Look how well stevekim is able to use the same type of lines in his oils.

    would like to see you design your pictures some more - play around with composition, get something interesting going.

    wheezy: I generally use a mechanical pencil. But I admit that I do tend to press too hard, plus I get lazy and just wanna finish stuff faster. I must really get out of that habit...
    Leo: One more, but portfolios are over thankfully. Dont know how it went yet, we shall see...
    I'll get working on that one, but I just wanna get some stuff out of my head on paper first. Thanks for the paintover =)
    KingElivs: I'm looking into some of the anatomy threads - the shapes thing is a good idea, I guess I should probably try start with that first..
    Brendan: Thanks for dropping in! And also with the stroke thing. I feel very nervous about my messiness and for some reason I can't get rid of it - I could never do the whole rendering properly thing unless I force myself a lot and even then you can still see it. Maybe if I refine it I could add some sort of style to my work.
    Thanks again and I will heed the composition advice!

    Bleh, I'm so used to the same thing I forget how long it takes me to sketch anything on a tablet. So here's me getting all adventurous and such trying a bit of colour still life. OH NOES!!!
    Cant remember the thread, but it was one of those for photoshop where you have to blend instead of smudge and preferrably stick to one brush. So yeah, one brush and no smudging - also, an actual BACKGROUND!!! (I know it's boring, I just dumped the skull by my lcd. Also lazy)

    By the way, does anybody have any clue what animal that skull could belong to? A friend sprayed it silver and gave it to me as a present, and I could not figure out what it is since!
