    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.

    Now, just some oldish imagination sketches, no ref:

    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!

    The perspective's off on the flying bus thing, here's the original by Ralph McQuarrie.

    Concept is look in good, the Loomis studies are paying off!

    Good fashion study too, nice edges on the creases/folds.

    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.

    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...

    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.
