    I need to beat the crap outta myself cause I don't draw enough in a day.

    Atleast if I update daily, I beleive I can go far, because it shows good working habits.

    I feel its very important, whatever happens.

    Studies of loomis un all that.

    The rough of me on the right is me wearing ear defenders. Is was plan for photoshop but my bamboo tablet went wrong. Gotta check that photoshop section.

    Attachment 553082

    Studies of loomis, I've been reading, observing, doing studies, but not enough.

    Attachment 553083

    I used my skeleton for reference to help me with the consturction. So important.

    Also studies of smiles from photographs, I did learn a lot.

    Attachment 553081

    My cast, I tried to treat it like as if it was made of flesh, thats how Rapheal practiced with his casts.

    Scanner can't pick up the very light values, dam.

    Attachment 553079

    I FINALLY did some tonal studies in oils, but It seems I lacked a lot of training for them. Left is one done out og my head, but its too muddy.

    I'll need to take even simpler baby steps.

    Phew! Big day! Been moving back to my college.

    Study of George Bridgeman arm, then I tried to invent one using refences from Peck and Bridgeman.

    Also followed by a weird Portrait, me in cubic sunglasses. 0.25 pen and 0.75

    Hmm! Tasty mistakes for my soul! Tasty cause I WON'T do them again! (Hopefully)

    Attachment 556657

    Study of balence by Bridgeman, along with a Peck study to compare, I like comparing.

    Then I invented some out of my head, using block like Mentler.

    Attachment 556659

    More caricature and sketches back at my glasshouse house. Some from the news, others from reality, (Including the girl eating her chips)

    Block ins for hands are spoted around.

    INCLUDES FUZZY BOOT AND OUTDATED CHRISTMAS DECORATION!

    Attachment 556660

    Also dog and my favorite kittycats.

    Attachment 556661

    Also progress from my asaro head study. Going to noodle it some more if I can.

    Sketches of students in glasshouse.

    Attachment 560669

    In organic coffee shop, I ended up talking with this student, He was one of those young men intrested in anime. He said If I chould draw out of my head.

    I did a quick scribble then made a cerimous woman out of it. Then sketched a "Tornado with eyes"

    Attachment 560670

    Will post my sketches of the farm soon...

    Also, there was a load of white mask in my mask production session
    I've sketched them before, they helped me describe planes.

    Attachment 560671

    I also did somthing similer to what Paul In learning to see. with his fashion model and pencil.

    I should refine the lines some more, since I was at different light source when drawing them.

    Attachment 560664

    Study of constuction with the help of Hale, Its tones are too blunt. I should of took my time like that Foot demonstration, But I keep getting rushed cause of choirs un that at the glass house.

    Nice lips, really clear and I can feel the mass in them.

    For your pencil drawings, I see one main thing that I think you can really have a breakthrough with if you do:

    Cleaner lines.

    At the moment, you draw very sketchily. While this is fine for some very rough quick studies, I think it would suit you a lot more if you really clean up your lines and take time and deliberate on them. The sketchy crosshatching is also doing nothing for you... there is a difference between sketchy hatching and rough hatching... you should try and get good at hatching before doing rough hatching though. Really think about the forms and planes of the face/figure you are drawing, and hatch to follow the form most importantly, and maybe the light as well. Try to evenly space your hatching... it seems that you're a bit impatient with it and you're just moving your pencil up an down. Get in there and take your time, the results will speak for themselves.

    Otherwise, I think your work looks really nice, just keep it up man. I'm here to help you improve .

    Thanks sebbonaparte, I'll try and work on more linal drawing excercises and see what happens.

    Since i'm in a rush since my time sketching is allways short in my non art school (That I rather not want to be in , I tend to rush either in panic or many circumstances.

    Can't update today, since I'm out to the theatre trip made by the college, will be back way too late to update.

    heya fitz!
    wow, lots of stuff here; and I think it has potential. I do have a bit of trouble reading your work though. because you're doing something I used to do as well; in case of doubt, add more lines!
    it does make your drawings easier to follow for the eye; because the eye always picks the line that makes most sense. but it makes the works less useful for learning material.
    you're not making the choice; you're leaving it up to the viewer. I'd really stop using multiple lines- at least for a while. use one clear, confident stroke per time. if its not right, leave it anyway. just try again next time.

    Since of the lack of time I have, I'm at this state where I must post less work.

    @Ashess, Yeah, I'm trying to go to rehab on of the drug of Bad clarity.

    Will post critiques soon... 5 minutes left to be on this thing!

    Had great fun drawing the actors and the Startford shakespere globe theatre. They kept moving so had to finish it from memory. One on the right had the most success.

    I love that we are polar opposites in our linework. Yours seems very creative and freehanded, which is what I like about it. You focus more on the shapes and masses and what's really there than with overly refining things in the sketch stage. I wish I could do that! =P Sometimes it can make some of the forms difficult to read, though. Try picking out the lightest areas when you're sketching from life/photos and then leaving them as the base paper color. It might help your sketches read a bit more clearly.

    Yeah Mock, I really should understand tones and there meanings more.

    After a busy day, It was somewhat pleasent day since it had a massage and a lovely cultural event about clowns.

    Working on lines and clarity.

    I really like the student head, I'm doing this sculptural study of an egytian head to help me understand planes, will post it soon.

    Most of these are from life alongside some memory.

    Nice work man, it's great that you draw from life so often.

    I see improvement in your shading, but I would continue to do those ink exercises from the mentoring thread, those really seemed to help on the two portraits of the acting group members... those ones are nice.

    I also think it would be worth it to try sketching with charcoal. You're loose style could really be reinvigorated with how great charcoal works for laying down value quickly, which seems to be what you're trying to do with graphite. If you don't have some, invest in a couple of HB charcoal pencils. I think you would find a lot of success with that medium.

    Keep on working man, good stuff. Just keep on doing hatching exercises, and remember to think of the positioning of the planes of the face and figure.

    Yeah yeah Sebbon, I'm learning a range of hatching tecniques that can produce a fine picture.

    Word of warning to myself, Go to sleep! Being tired makes me do less.

    Anyway, Back to that clown workshop.

    I'm going to be good as Kchen, Gurney, un all that.

    Nice work man, I see some definite improvement in your sketches... You're hating is a lot cleaner, but you're still retaining that vitality you got in them. Just keep up the good work man, and thanks for that critique on my sketchbook, you're links and words are an invaluable asset for me.

    I'm sure you'll be up there with Gurney and Kevin Chen if you keep at it with your work ethic.

    Oh and one more thing... maybe try some longer pieces that you render out, just to change things up a bit.

    You have the most important part of the learning process down: drawing a LOT. I'm impressed with the sheer amount of stuff you've posted, keep it up.

    And if you're not making mistakes, you're not trying nearly hard enough! =P You'll be at that level in no time. You're heading in the right direction in pretty much every way.
