    Nice work on these recent digis, and the storyboard studies! and your dog portraits are really cute =) keep up the good work, and happy painting as always!

    -and yep, I have the same Louise Gordon books, and did the exact same studies before, but not to the level of detail you achieved in your drawings the rendering's really good in them, can really feel the form in the studies

    On the second sketch the nose is out of proportion on the close-up, I think... BTW: for what "V&A" stands for?

    2-3 hour study of Charlotte Casiraghi and a concept for a stormtrooper, loosely based on the original one by Ralph McQuarrie.

    Amazing progress since I last visited. Love the princess portrait, the only thing I'd say is that both cheek's glare might be a little too white. Also, those pencil pieces are really sweet.
    Keep working, you're definitely improving!

    Thank you, in the photo there's a fair bit of highlight on the brow and cheeks, but now you say this I see there's a little patch of dark midtone missing on her left cheek. And probably more mistakes.

    End of another term at LARA. First is a cast of Saint Benedict (or so I reckon), and some 4 week life drawings. I also drew people on the train to the school, so there's a selection of the best. Finally there's a random concept influenced by a sci-fi novel I read ages ago.

    that cast drawing of beardyman is really nice, it looked great all cut out and framed. your figure drawings have also come a long way, ill just reiterate what i said before about value transitions on skin, it is usually good practise to downplay them for various reasons. but your developing a good sensitivity for it

    on the commuting portraits, it feels like ur perhaps breaking down the forms too much at the expense of naturalism. eg the third face on the first row, the nose is almost a completely straight line, you also simplify the eyebrows into straight lines a lot of the time, bear in mind that eyebrows follow the changing contours of the head, which means that the way you draw them will also convey quite a lot about the angle and form of the portrait.
    lookie here, since i know u luv loomis
    http://fineart.sk/photos/figure/162.JPG
    see column in the middle, and bottom left. even from an isolated eye you know exactly what angle the heads at, because the eyebrows tell u the form of the head they're on

    the angles ur using feel a bit forced, the eyebrows are a part of that - like the second head on the second row. the head seems especially square. remember the angles are there to break down what you're seeing to make it easier to draw, like curves etc. dont impose the angles if they arent helping u see something. i think this style is more appropriate for static subjects like models,casts, portraits personally

    on the metal head thing: be wary about drawing things flat on like that. the symmetry is hard to pull off n compromises form. it seems weird to me that the helmet is face on but the tube at the front protrudes at an angle, and i dont understand where the eye things are sitting in terms of depth. youve drawn them with completely flat edges, which suggests that they just stick out sideway from the eye which is kinda awkward. would have been nice to see more variety in the line and some shading to make part of the eye panel recede

    well keep it up man. youve come a long way since the start of lara, keep me updated!

    Thanks for the help, I see how the eyebrows can really help find the shape of the forehead. Each face in the commuting portraits are about 5 mins or less though, so I felt I could only block them in. I guess it was a warm up to the approach at lara each morning... But yeah I should get quicker, and remember the details of the faces.

    So update time, first up are some concepts for a comic:

    And Andrew Loomis studies on my A6 tablet. I'm just straight copying these (spending ages on each figure too :/) until I get to the "caped mannequin". From then on I'm gonna spend a couple of weeks drawing that caped guy...

    Update time again - quite a large one, sorry about that.

    Each day I start off with a Posemaniacs warm up. This is the most recent:
    Attachment 1040674

    Then I go on to Andrew Loomis studies, gonna start his Mannikin exercises soon.
    Attachment 1040680

    This one failed because I treated the bounding boxes as perfect squares, which they weren't. So everything is a little distorted inside them, dohoho.

    this ones especially successful . ur imagination figures are coming along too but careful with the midsection, ur obliques are looking mighty long, and ur nipping ur waists in a lot. strong foundations though just keep building on this by collecting ref pics and drawing from them a lot

    Smaller update.
    Been kinda lax lately :/ Playing computer games, Minecraft FTW!

    Cheers for the advice Sean, it is always very very much appreciated, even when I forget to Thank comment posts.

    First up is the usual Andrew Loomis, getting to the mannikin, I can almost reach it.

    Woo nice updates! I like those Loomis studies. They're spot on and definitely well worth the practice.

    Also, in addition to what Sean said, re: your imagination drawings, I think the chests are a little deflated and could do with more volume.

    Keep it up! I'm going to do some loomis studies too now!

    heya andrew,

    those loomis studies are going great, and so are your tonal studies (+1 for the Krull studies, watched that again over the summer). Also, your figures are less stiff, and the amount of studies youre doing is great, nice to see yer studies at hunterian on sat

    however, in your quicker work and studies, there is a tendency for your proportions and construction to slide somewhat (some overlong facial proportions). I'd keep what sean said about some of your drawings looking too angular, try being more loose and gestural in your sketches, introduce some softer lines in your subway sketches and watch for the torsos in your imaginative figures

    p.s. Harold Speed's da bomb, the step-by-step portrait demo is gold, have post-its by the pile and highlight the shit outta that book

    Thank you Brandon :)
    Just getting into the main parts of the book, the beginning echoes some of the areas in the drawing book. But its getting meaty now. I want to memorise both of them :O


    Finally finished this concept sketch, spent way too long on it and went OTT on the rendering... never doing that again in a sketchbook.
    EDIT: The middle guy is from reference , so credit goes to Michael Sutfin for the original. Everything else is from imagination.
    Attachment 1075504

    And I went back and rendered St. George at the V&A, only to do a sketchy block in of a statue of Diana. I'll have to go back and finish it :>

    Hey thanks for dropping by Koto! The imagination stuff has been lacking a bit lately, probably because I've been shifting the viewing angles around.

    Anyway, some works, a small study of Frank Lampard from this picture. I'm digital painting the rest of it, giving myself until Friday to finish.

    And a Sargent study at the National Portrait Gallery from last Friday.
