    I'm working more on my anatomy before I jump into painting. I used to just dive right in and always have to fix the proportions after I was finished. These are just quick sketches, trying to get back to the basics.

    I'll be adding many more sketches...

    Nice start for a sb. i did the same thing recently.

    looks like your anatomy exercises are turning out well, good to start with those, and more of them. I like the loose, smoker.

    the finish piece is pretty. I seem to think the nose is slightly off center. however, that being said, I hate when folks act like everyone is the same and everything is just so, in real life, its not. I think the blending looks great, nice shadows, but even after all that, it still looks somehow flat. I notice this, because I personally suffer from the same problem, on every single thing I do. so, take it with a grain o salt. its just how looks. pretty pic none the less.

    keep a churnin.

    Dragonspit, you're right and I need to experiment with different custom brushes. I haven't found my style yet with digital painting. I've just been using the round brush as my main tool.

    I used a texture brush only in this study. I'm very pleased with the outcome.

    He said it best. Enjoyable sketchbook so far! I think the colored ones look a bit flat because the colors lack saturation. More contrast as you do it in b&w would punch it up. So don't be afraid to use those reds and yellows, etc.

    Thanks Eon, right now its just b&w for me. Finding the right color for skin has always been difficult.

    It's been awhile since I posted because I realized I needed to get back into traditional drawing. After getting back on track, I've been trying out charcoal, which I've never used before. This was done on newsprint which I know isn't the best paper for charcoal.

    I love what you did with the hair, but I wish you had included her feet!

    Nice stuff, though, I really like the one you used the textured brush for.

    nice stuff! draw from life as much as you can, and think about making things more gestural.. something i've been taught with respect to animation (and drawing as well) is, think about where the weight of the figure is, i think of that particularly w/the bettie page pic. its off to a good start tho..

    pearblossom I will do more gesture drawings. My work needs to loosen up a bit.

    ruuhkis Thanks, I appreciate it!

    After going from charcoal back to photoshop, I think it's helped me become more efficient at painting and drawing on the computer. I still have a long way to go.

    Good nudes and figure studies. How far can you take them? What else can you do?
