    Thank you. I was concentrating on the bodies mostly as opposed to the faces, but yeah there's some head squishing going on there. Thanks for the pointer

    Thanks dude I think the Loomis is really helping me. Oil painting might still be a little ways off though but it will happen.

    about half a year late for the self portrait day heh heh. Charcoal on toned paper with white conte sticks. The fixative killed off the conte a little bit :<

    Love the sculpture studies

    The self portrait has some great lighting in it, and well done on capturing your own face! although the neck is a little off, perhaps too wide?..I should know since I'm an expert in other people's neck (it says so on my C.V. too). Chin edge looks a little too sharp? All good stuff sir! How goes the assimilation of Loomis?

    Thanks Koto

    Really good crits on the s-p, I think I rushed it to the end. I can see some edges are maybe too sharp or too soft, perhaps the fixative blew some of the charcoal off (excuses, excuses!).

    My main worry is the eyes and glasses feel a tad wonky like the perspective is slightly too exaggerated... My neck is relatively wide if i do say so myself, but perhaps it could've been a little narrower.


    Have some Loomis!

    It's still amazing for your first sp! (it's your first, right?)

    Ahh those delicious Loomis studies, I'm inspired to keep a Loomis sketchbook like you now, try and make them as neat and accurate as yours are!

    Have a good bank holiday weekend!

    Thanks Koto, there's more to come.

    Starting to oil paint today, kinda unsure what process i'm going to use. Anyway here's some character sketches for the sw comic.

    Oils~

    This didn't turn out so great, the thin layer of midtone oil underneath (scumble) dried quicker than I expected, so I didn't get to experience the effect of the paints mixing.
    Attachment 1249050


    And a Plein Air, I should have painted a little thicker and covered the canvas more.

    Your rendering is much more improved, those Loomis studies seem to help also judging from the quality of your block-ins at the life drawing, keep up the daily art routine!

    that said, I'd still recommend practicing handling, both in how you draw with paint (look at Harold Speed's brush chart to see edge quality) and drawing in general with pencil and charcoal- looking forward to seeing you post the still lifes in progress!

    I LOVE LOOMIS, that said, I hope to get to grips with handling with time. I dunno if there are any specific exercises I can try. I'm not a fan of that continuous hard line style...

    tehmeh
    Thanks! The oil had a good block in so the proportions are ok, it's just the specific technique for that painting failed because it dried as I left it too long :/

    That last plein air is solid, trees are crazy hard to pain.

    Your block-ins are looking great, you seem to nail the proportions really well.

    Yep, gotta keep pushin it. Anyway, you need to update your sketchbook/blog. DO EEET.


    Mega update time, I'm going to be offline for a little bit and then very busy after that, so here's a few pieces:

    This is my first portrait/bust in oil. Unfortunately the model left half way through so this is 3 hours instead of 6.


    Attachment 1295473
    Painted 5 mins walk from my house. Pure burnt sienna for those plants in the foreground, my folks say they're seeding docks(?).


    Attachment 1295474
    Went to tehmeh's back yard and painted this.

    i "finished" Figure Drawing For all it's Worth, so I thought why not do some studies of his paintings?

    Yeah it's quite a wide head, but I wanted to capture the feel of the first (i think) charcoal block-in. Here's original: http://farm1.staticflickr.com/202/49...bbcfea98_o.jpg

    Wow dude, your digitals have improved a ton, love the Loomis studies.

    How are you doing these studies, side by side? with a Grid?

    Thanks mate, I might do some other Loomis studies, his other works I have are more complicated though.

    I do digital studies side by side at the same resolution. I start off zoomed out and get progressively closer in. So you could call it Photoshop sight size - I sometimes measure down or across with the pen depending how the things laid out.
    As to using a grid I've never tried it.

    So to update - this is supposedly an Area 51 bunker:

    Just for fun this next one I painted on my phone in a library from a book on John William Waterhouse:
