    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:

    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.

    Next up is a bunch of Mall Galleries life drawings, using Bristol Board.

    Some studies I made at Dulwich Picture Gallery. The guy on the right is from a Salvator Rosa about some guards gambling. The other guards are from another painting, can't remember who did that....

    Later on in the day I draw figures from my imagination.

    hey improving leaps and bounds,
    http://attachments.conceptart.org/fo...3&d=1281734545
    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!

    You seem to work in the right direction

    Don't forget to include color and work from imagination to your schedule though.

    Thanks, there's some imagination pieces scattered about, but its taking a back seat at the moment. I bought the Colour and Light Theory vid recently, plus Harold Speed's Oil Painting Techniques so I'll get to it.

    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.
