In all seriousness, a great SP. Excellent likeness. Is the mouth too far down (from the nose)? I get the feeling it is, but I could be wrong. The use of strokes and color is Bold and Daring. You could handle a bag of Doritos just fine.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
Jetpack: Moby?...yeah shut up
Thanks for the comment about the sp. It helped. I woke up this morning and looked at it, and was surprised by all the weird proportions I didn't even slightly notice late last night. I fixed it a little.
the new SP is really good. I must be looking at it after you made corrections, I don't see any proportional problems. The brush strokes are great, nice and chunky and follow the forms. The color variations within the skin tones are also good; that's something I've been lacking in my work.
lots of cool work. on the last figures i think it may have helped if you used strokes that were more descriptive of the form. but i definitely know what you mean when you're at a life drawing sessions and the concentration isn't all there.

jetpack42: I guess he doesn't have super-villian proportions, huh?
bwkeough: Since the design of that pteranodon guy doesn't seem to be much more than an anthropomorphic dinosaur, I'll probably leave it alone. If I happen to think of something that makes him feel less like a dinosaur, maybe I'll play with it some more. Thanks!
bwkeough, Groover McNab, flex mathews: I like how using ink forces me to think about what I want to draw before I put a pen or brush to the paper. Otherwise I just start scribbling with my pencil til I come up with an idea (or not). Which is good to do sometimes but most of the time I think I am just being lazy. I think pen and ink is helping me overcome that laziness... not there yet though!!!
imglue: Thanks man, i am trying to do less of it these days in order to become more descisive and confident. Traditional stuff is so much less forgiving.
