    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.

    ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)

    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.

    Thanks, I'll try sketching with that.

    Mix of observation and memory, I did it without asking.

    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.

    Some rough, some more fineshed.

    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.
