    awesome! both studies look great! Perspective lines arent necessary, but are helpful when youre stuck.
    Dont worry about not being able to draw as much, school's important, as is learning how to balance life and art before you totally burn yourself out.

    solid perspective. and bridgeman is being studied well as I see
    ah, and you are really getting into colors, like in that portrait from page 29! well done

    Thanks everyone I've mainly just been doing art for my Drill-Man project thing for school so it wasn't really worth posting things separately.

    Today marks 1 year of drawing on CA All I can say is it's been amazing

    Mr. T,er Drillman goes to Mars? You gotta explain that one, mate. Anyway the enviros for all the levels look pretty cool, they show some good progress. The movie still studies i like as well, should try that myself some time. Your figures still have a large torso and short legs, so it might be worth watching out for that.

    Some really nice work on that project, man.

    But I gotta say, some of it doesn't look like it's up to par with what I know Sam can pump. It's almost like a few of the pieces were done hastily and just so you could say that you finished them, or have them under your belt, or whatever.

    Those storyboards from The Machinist are damn sweet, and it looks like you're improving from panel to panel. Respect for the Christian Bale love. haha

    walnut: For the lols thanks for pointing out the proportion issues, I'll try and pay more attention to it in future. Cheeers

    Jaytea: Thanks

    lilnebo: But the project is over..that was the end result

    Meissner: Well you need to consider the fact that this project was over the period of a month, and at the beginning of that month I had no clue how to go about, say, creating an environment in 2 hours. It's only natural that the first paintings are worse than others. Thanks

    That dude's face... is awesome. Pretty damn good face right there, you really nailed it, I feel like he could be a real person.

    That self portrait's pretty cool too dude! You seem to be doing the right things man.

    If you're studying form, let me tell you something that's been helping me out a lot lately: studying myself in the mirror. You don't have to show anyone these sketches if you feel uncomfortable, but I've found the benefits to be immediate in my imaginative drawings. I usually strip down to my boxers/soccer shorts and then I begin drawing my legs from every which way, and just soaking in how the forms overlap. Don't necessarily pay so much attention as to the underlying anatomy (that's a different issue that Bridgman's doing plenty to help you out with ) but just focus on the overlapping, what you can see and what is blocked... Then sit down and draw some legs from your head, trying to imagine your own legs as the model in your head. It should come easier. Rinse repeat. Eventually you'll gain a lot stronger understanding in how forms project in and out of the picture plane; speaking of which, I better get back to drawing . Looking good dude.

    some good stuff since i last looked. pencil stuff is getting better.
    keep an eye out for when you shading the neck. some of those do look a little undefined at times.
    keep up the work man!

    Absolute great great progress. You should be an inspiration to lots of people here on CA. Listen, wouldn't you be interested in being in a sketchbook support group with me and Nkristian? You would make a good contribute. Say something

    Judging from the few pages I've looked over it seems to me that you don't spend enough time on your underlying forms. Your rendering is looking pretty good but there is a definite gap between your ability to draw the forms and your ability to render. Spend a little more time to accurately capture those forms.

    Rock on brother man!

    Hey Sam dude, Clint study is very good - I really think you've nailed the likeness but the image itself has been handled well. confident, not over-complicated or too simple and characterful brushstrokes.

    that Clint Eastwood portrait is quite good. It has a real likeness to him, good job.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    Cool improvement Sam! The rendering is coming along nicely, and is something you should continue to work on. Everyone mentioning the forms is right, the problem is it is quite hard to give advice specifically on how to work on this. I think something that would help you is taking/ finding a lot of photoreferences of figures with large-medium amounts of foreshortening, and just sketching the overlapping forms. It will help you to understand and draw the more complex forms of the human body, like the shoulders and hips etc. To help understand the area a form occupies in 3D space, you may want to try sketching lightly the parts of the muscle you arent seeing, so when you draw something like the upper arm foreshortened, rather than seeing this as an extremely complex shape, try to build it up with '3D' looking shapes, and redrawing the contours that are visible. this may seem an exaggerated process, but it will really help with your understanding of structure.

    If you aren't sure what I'm going on about, because re-reading it, its not all that clear, I'll send an overpainting of a photo or something to show what I mean

    Heya dude, Cool update.
    About the wes studies. Your lines are all kinda blocky and shit. What i notice from wes's work is that he has a realy neat round clean feel to it. Try to capture that more and render more in curves and shit. Cool stuff on the body studies.

    Hey, massive improvement! I think a lot of your studies look great, you're a little harsh on yourself dude, or maybe that's good for motivation - at least you "learnt a lot" - hehe that's kinda my attitude actually Keep up the good work m8.

    jordyskateboardy: Thanks, I get you. That probably comes from trying to sketch in straight lines and get more structure, should smooth things off afterwards

    AlexTooth: Aha well I don't really get myself down by saying these things, just have to make sure you know why it doesn't look right I guess Cheers

    indeed, compared to your other portraits, the light source is more clear. and the poses are more dynamic I guess. btw, they are far from being terrible. its good that you study from a man like wes, he really knows how to handle portraits

    I liked that environment too. maybe you could repeat that pillar several times to convey space more clearly. just a thought

    keep it up

    that last enviro has good lighting. Your did a good job on it, I actually quite like it.

    I would only have to say is watch out on those hips and ribs when your drawing them girls. Just keep on doing reference drawing and such and you'll get better at it.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills
