    very cool man, youre improving!

    Here's some tips:

    The cloak doesn't seem to curve naturally.
    There should be highlights on the metallic things, (they have a sharper value curve), I would also expect much darker values on the front of the figure (I think that will also add to the mystery of the whole piece). But in the end, lighting stuff is your personal choice, you cause we artists don't have to always abide by the rules .
    Good job on the moon and fog, but I think that with some reference for the clouds, you could've pushed it further.

    Keep up those studies, you're making great progress!
    [especially liked the neck studies ]

    one thing I've noticed that your faces look too similar, try sketching some faces from real life to get more diversity.
    the last page is well.. we know you can do better than that.

    Awesome studies man! keep goin!

    Brewin; thnx for the comp and crit
    I know about my faces lookin similar, i just really have a hard time drawing the facial features.. and cuz of that i stick to the same pattern of creating the same kind of mouth, nose and eye.. i wish i could get out of this habit..
    but i guess thats not done in a day
    But ill put work innit and ill try to get more diversity!

    Here is some stuff from today!.. my scanner totally f*ked my pages up






    and a digi i made on my mini wacom BUM...boo!

    Bloomin' eck! Look at all these updates, you put us to shame!

    I'm finding it hard to point out things you need to work on because your working on everything...hmmm...

    Something about your large back study bothers me, perhaps it comes in too extreme at the tist of his lower back, your face studies are improving quickly, maybe experiment drawing different ages and different facial types if you want to expand in that direction.
    Values need to be pushed on the computer Pic, under the chin specifically.

    Keep up the good work!

    my thoughts:
    the 5th page really bothers me - the chick's left hand had a few problems.
    the head thats next to her thigh- her face looks a bit flat (looking straight forward) in relation to the cranium (looking a little to the side)
    a great exercise would be to draw the same head turning 360 degrees around (all angles).
    the paint study - push the levels, but also, try to get more hues in there (+stronger highlights on the eyes), her hair is painted in clusters - thats not how hair looks, look at some model refs.

    all in all, you're doing great man!

    Damn Roger, all of these awesome studies make me feel unproductive.

    Keep going so I can keep going! I think the Assassin type pic at the bottom of page four is really cool. It might look toony because of the color pallete. I would throw in more details and do some contrast work.

    wow, 3new pages since I've last stopped by!! you've been busy.
    still love your dedication on all those studies. they show a lot of progress especially in your recent pages from mind.
    last color portrait looks a lot better already as well. remember to mirror you digipieces once in a while, that'll help getting a fresh eye on those and maybe spot a few perspective or proportion issues sometimes.
    keep working it, dude!

    Nice studies and sketches man! Keep up the studies looks like youve learned alot from them hehe

    One crit for the drawings from your head. Youve got great eye for proportion and anatomy but it seems like you have trouble with details. Sometimes its easy to fall victim to using cliches or symbols . Examples would be the stomach muscles and the neck muscles on the mohawk guy. They convey the sense of muscles, but in real life it wouldnt really look like that.
    Life drawing really helps with that.

    dude im finding it hard to crit you...

    i think you should take it to the next level man! try insane poses, more foreshortening, emphasize movement (making it look natural) and rhythm.

    keep goin!

    thats what Im talking about!
    I see youve noticed your mistake on the broad shouldered woman. the chick ton the bottom left 1st page looks a bit off.
    the portrait's left eye (viewer side), is a bit off, it's like it's going a bit backwards and up the head... watch out for that man.

    these are great! I'd say push it even further!

    Was there not a kickass pencil selfpotrait up here earlier? Or am i going mad...it was really good

    Your productivity is making me look bad!

    Your doing pretty good, i particularly like the 2nd page of women poses, i agree with brewin about the eye, although it might be the size difference more then the position...im not sure. Maybe use two different grades of pencil to get them dark darks in?

    FACES! Thats what i want to see, your bodies are good, your proportions are quite steady, when you draw faces it seems your not as comfortable with them? It seems you reflect your own face characteristics onto your characters alot, i see similarities between them and your self portraits (keep in mind its 2am and im tired, im not sure how much sense im making).

  22. Hey there, thanks for posting in my sketchbook! Your anatomy studies are looking awesome; the figures your producing look just great. For your color works, they feel more like value studies to me with a flat color implemented for each area. Try working in some colors into your shadows. Remember that the complementary color should be seen in the shadows for an object as well as reflected color from the surrounding area. Think about the color of the light that is hitting your figures and subtly add that to your highlights (stronger in the areas that receive stronger lighting and milder in areas that are receiving atmospheric light). Reflected light should reflect the color of the object or area where the light is being reflected from. Keep up the good work!

    Im digging the face studies, its pulling away from the normal face style, some of them are really nicely done! Some of the noses are a bit funny, but i think thats more a problem with how they sit on the face then the actual; face shape, Trying blocking them out as a simple shape first (a prism works for me) once you get the angles on them right you'll be sorted.

    I think perhaps a couple of the heads are too small for the body in the fullbody poses. Your gestures are good, try putting it down to say 15 seconds, you'll weep like a baby as gesture after gesture comes out crap, but you'll learn four times as quick because of it!

    Looking good rogerb! You don't mess around when putting down lines. Hard to crit really, there are little things her and there not nothing i can pick out that won't improve with all the practise your doing.

    Maybe some fabric and tonal studies?

    Ahoy! Thanks for stopping by!

    Lovely work, you sure are productive! Great seeing you doing decent anatomy studies along with all the work from head, this is bound to pay off. There are some proportions issues in some of these, but I'm sure you'll fix those with time if you keep the studies up.
