    Grandmassa Mr. Spect- Haha cheers man!

    R a n d i s- Hay wow man thanks! So glad you dig mate!

    Sorry boring update today,
    Some quick pose studies/sketches. These are copied off Bumskee's studies, is that alright to do? Its just easier then hunting down all the reff as hes already done that part.

    And a photo study and progress Gif hopeful to help BlackDelphine out.
    Thanks for looking everyone!

    Looking good dude. Im amazed by how much you post, keep it coming. Nice castle-thingy, only crit would be that the global lighting seems a little weak, try slapping on a couple of god-rays from that dip in the back ground or a nice warm gradient bottom up..

    Have you tried showing the OTHER side of your face to the camera I know for sure that i look better if i turn my head to the left in a picture. That way, it'll seem that you're looking to the right in the photo too. Now go give it a try and post your result : p

    So nice seeing you post some figures like this!! I can realise more from your style so. And gosh! Do i like how you draw your knees n legs

    And thank you so much for taking your time with that landscape!! I can't believe you spent so much time on it!! Really, thank you so much Matt! You're the best!
    If you're ever in Romania, remind me to invite you to my cottage haha!.

    I shall take a closer look at those steps and the info you wrote after i wake up tomorrow. (Played 4h of tennis today so i'm to tired for digital work: bones..i can do in bed xD)

    Take care~

    love the gif, dude! so good to see those studies.
    though it feels like forever to imrpove (which it feels for me), the
    studies are where we learn the MOST :] keep it up!!!!!!

    EDITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT: i gave this to BlackDelphin and i think it would help you too. it's a tutorial on speedpainting environments by the good ol' Goro Fujita. :] http://www.area-56.de/chapter56/2006...dpainting.html hope you use it wisely, it's a goldmine for artists. ;]

    Another dull update I'm afraid, more studies.

    Some quick pose/gestures to start the day and some Bridgman's.
    I spent a bit more time on these than usual (not that it shows) just trying to really get the form correct... or at least like he drew them Bridgman's so good for all sorts of studies, long or short.

    Thanks a lot for looking, really means a lot

    Excellent Bridgmans.

    The movement and tension are great.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.

    Well i think they look good and they do feel worked up on my eyes! Really clean as always; i'd say perfect!
    on the 3rd page the right leg is bugging me a bit..perhaps it is because that line is so straight? on the upper part of the leg

    and do you have any tips on bridgmans?
    i want to draw from that book but i am not sure what to do...should i randomly draw something out of it?

    and yeah, i sure can say that romanians are not to good for anything (though i am half myself xD but half is half so i can brag with witch ever i want lol) but if it's for the mountains-forests, then this place is good to visit;

    Btw, stop saying boring update!!
    We like all what you post because it's by you!! Otherwise we wouldn't be here

    Your poses are coming along great man, and that environment gif is great, your process seems so obvious and simple compared to mine. I think I need a process rethink!
    I was lurking around your teams Chow thread and you guys all did some kick ass work. I want to see you working on another piece! Can't really be much use atm cause clearly you've got your studies on lock .

    Keep it going!
    Peace
    Dan

    Great studies from Bridgeman - very lively looking. It looks like you're really thinking about them and that can only be good.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    ahhhh you make me wanna do some Bridgman studies... I would recommend doing more anatomy sketches from photo refs or life.

    Pencil work as good as usual.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    Did someone say Level Up? Matty those Bridgeman studies are really really good and the gif wip is soooo appreciated. I just loved seeing that, it certainly helps rookies like me get an idea of the work flow.

    Hey dude, how it's going ?Nice stuff ! Nice bridgman studies ! Maybe you should more analyze his stuff, ya know, try to use your style when you study them, if you really understand it, it won't have the same style, but the same feeling of shapes, etc ! So Keep it up !

    __________________________________________________ __________

    Been so friggn' busy lately, but I have got some art done.

    I recently got the 'Zhanglu / Manley Caucasian Female Portraits From imagination' download, what an awesome demonstration!!!!


    So as Jason suggests, I started with some Hogarth studies, really trying to get to the head cannon right.

    Right I'm not happy showing these, but Its only fair to show the progress (all from imagination).
    First portrait attempt, about30 minutes.

    2nd try, again about half an hour.

    3rd, about 45 min.
    Name:  Portrait (Zlu-type) female3.jpg

    And 4th, about 45-50 minutes.

    I'm going to keep doing these, so will hopefully be seeing some improvement soon!

    Thanks so much for looking, Love you all!

    Nice Matt! Great job on the syudies and imaginative portraits. I think you should do some photo studies as well as imagination. That will help you to bring more realism to your heads. YOur doing so greatt

    Like others said, you need to push the values more in those portraits, right now it looks like they're behind a layer of mist or something. A few darker tones and they'd pop right out. Looking good though
