    Sorry - had to break up the posting/uploading because my computer was freezing up. Here are some more drawings though:

    hey there buddha; please, do break up those posts ^^ its very hard to comment on such big sequences because after 8 or nine it gets hard explain which you mean. like, I relly like the panther, that walks to the left. in the middle of the group, top of this page.. ah. but ofc it could be a tiger and you didnt fill in the stipes. know what I mean?
    perhaps you could even add a bit of explaining before the picture. like, this is a rhino, I drew it in the zoo. or from a picture. I dunno. just explain
    now, bit of a real crit: I notice your studying human anathomy. the jagged edge figures in particular are meant to give you a sense of volume in space. ike its all boxes where we're build up from. you do a really good job at copying them. and then you turn around and draw things completely flat. like the rhino. his knee facing us should jut out at us. but it doesnt you flattened it. when trudying the anatomy books, look for the shape in space; the perspective and volume. then apply it to real life!
    hope this helps

    Here are 3 steps in a digital painting/study of my left hand... hopefully I can make some more progress on it tomorrow. Any critiques or suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Hey Buddha.

    I think you should be exploring values, the colours you put down aren't very well thought out. Expierement with making form with values. You should be studying a lot more colour theory >>> Briggsy site will help you get started. Paint in grayscale, learn those values.

    Some nice figures there, try exploring line qualitys, and especially your work on that "Secret figure" to help you draw in porportion out of your head.

    Very nice figure drawings here.
    Though I do agree with Fitzin on the color theory suggestion. That hand looks too yellow, too saturated though.

    Nude humans... these are my favorite kind! Well... mostly the other 50% kind of humans...



    Cool studies in here... Can't think of much to critique, more than to keep it up Wouldn't mind seeing some more stuff that aren't strictly studies though

    Less lines, more masses! Your figures all have these really strong outlines, and they're a crutch used to represent the figure. However, we don't see those in real life. We only see the border between the figure and the background behind it. The form itself is represented through masses. Try sketching your figure outlines very lightly and then thinking about the body in terms of its forms rather than its outline. It will lend your figures a much stronger presence.

    Hey man nice stuff, how much time has past from the first few till now? It looks as if you just when on a scanning rampage on everything you could find! It's great though I'm not complaining.

    Some of the people you do look pretty good, others not so good. Some have pretty good anatomy and some seem to have no real anatomy, but I figured it's just you playing around and trying new stuff.

    The creatures you have sketched up there look the best to me. You seem to have a pretty interesting style. Not sure what it is, but I like it.

    Keep working on that anatomy and keep posting man. Doing good!

    The felines are very nice and some of those anatomy studies are also great. I would manipulate thiose scans a little in PS to get rid of teh stark blue.

    Cheers

    Hey man post some more! Although I'm not one to talk.

    You're figure drawings are looking interesting, but listen to Mock's advice. You should start learning forms and planes and how to describe them... Bridgman is a good place to do that, so I'd pick up a couple of his books if you haven't already (your local library may have them).

    Just post man, don't be afraid!

    Concerning your digital hand study, it may be best for you to focus on black and white value studies first before you start implementing color. That way you're not juggling so many questions in the same study. Keep up the good work!
