    Don't know why I didn't check in earlier, scary good progress man, like I mentioned with your sketchbook - lines and shapes have gotten a lot better. The studies at the top are wicked

    i would start trying new brushes for the environments, even just studies. nearly everything in a scene like that is a gradient when you have vast open ground and atmospheric perspective, and suggesting forms of the grass in the foreground will also help work in that needed depth

    Thanks, here's an update finally

    tehmeh
    Not as scary as your sketchbook HAHA! But thanks dude
    I did experiment with some brushes recently, need to get refined with that. I'll probably reduce the hardness a fair bit in the next landscape.

    First this sculpture is at the RA. I didn't bank on the area being so crowded so its gonna stay unfinished:

    And this Sororitas I did for someones Dark Heresy character:

    Great progress Andy. If could give a crit, I would say your figures looked stretched out. This world has gravity in it, things need to push up from the ground. Perhaps picture a person as a structure. If you can keep this in mind when thinking about how the upper body connects to the lower part at the hips then this may help.

    ^ Agreed. some of the figures look slightly elongated, it adds to the style, but are not proportionally correct.

    You're def improving in great strides, however, I'd like to see more studies from imagination, the values on your imagine drawing show this, so I'd say keep pushing those studies as well

    keep posting, it's looking good!

    Thanks for the advice mate. I think its a compromise between having a figure rooted to the ground by gravity but also that dynamism of potential movement via gesture. Working from the ground up in a figure might be worth a shot though.

    I've always tended to elongate everything I draw, it verges on the stylistic I guess. I'm not sure whether to completely expunge that from my work or not.
    Imagination studies will be around. Thanks


    Ok finally this damn star fighter for the comic. There are earlier attempts at getting it right from orthographic views but I gave up and made it in sketchup.

    And this skeleton from the Hunterian museum, Charles Byrne the Irish giant, 7 ft 7.

    great studies! love specially the casts =D who needs schools when you have V&A? =p seems that when you doing characters from imagination you "avoid" using references... dont!!! pose your self, use the same light ( if possible ) that you want your character to be under, etc...
    also great work with sketchup!!! that's a fine star fighter

    Thanks Call0ps! Not only the V&A but also the British Museum! You'll have to see the Hunterian too at some point.
    I've been using reference a lot more now. I used to look at others works here asking myself is that purely from imagination or reference? Now I know its sometimes just a crazy mix of both.

    So: Loomis and character study.

    Thanks tehmeh, the fighter is the only thing I'm making in sketchup for a while, I could get very carried away with that program...

    The head study is well done, as are the figure concepts- the poses are looking more naturalistic

    good to see your progress both in digitals and in your sketchbooks, i'll say just keep up the consistent quality posts, and hope to see your oil paintings/studies up soon!
