dleoblack: Thanks, man. That means a lot coming from someone with skills like yours.
Again, just under two hours. I gotta get out of this lazy kick.
an hour of 120 second figure sketches
about 45 mins of Civardi
And now I'm moving onto Bridgman! I went through about half the book a couple times before, but now I feel I'm in a better place to really approach it thoughtfully.

cubesoflard: Thanks for compliments. I don't open the images in photoshop I just scan them and post them as is. Buut I've made a new scanner preset for it now so it should be a little better. I might end up deciding that its too dark eventually though (all of the drawings are really light).
Ok so the first image is a self portrait from yesterday. It looks kinda like me except younger and more handsome. about 40 mins.
Today I just did Bridgman for 5 and half hours.

Hey Nick! .. You have such fantastical values going on!.. You can really make a piece pop. Some of my favorites was the guy on page 2 screaming and the doggy on page 2. All of your studies are coming along awesome as well. I'll be droppin by again soon!

I'm liking what you're doing with textures. Your studies are coming along nicely, too.

Now, THAT is what a call working hard, man...
I have to say I love your charcoal stuff, but (and maybe that's my ink-crazed mind) I'd like a bit more contrast. It feels to me like some blacks could help bring focus to them. In fact, the ones you've coloured already now look more powerful to me because of that: the greater contrast may make them slightly less subtle, but it sure brings them to life. I'd suggest either colouring all of them, thus using the charcoal as a first step in the image, or trying some ink washes. I dunno, maybe that's just me...
Regarding the studies, they're sweet, man. You've got your stuff together in that area. I'd like to see you apply all those wicked anatomy chops on more stuff from imagination!
It's not like I have to encourage you that much, given how much work you put in here, but anyway... Keep 'em coming, man!

Sonia Leticia: Thanks for the compliments and the doggy is my doggy; her name is Liberty Belle
odiolitos : Thanks! I'm trying to be as consistent as possible and I gotta make sure I'm getting a lot done so I'm more able when the pro work starts coming in. Thanks for the tip about the darks. I've been having trouble with it for a while now, and I just don't seem to use the 6b pencils enough. I may experiment with your suggestion in the future though. Thanks!
Ok, so I've been away from here for almost 2 weeks. But I haven't been completely idle. I recently got a commission for some zombie stuff so I'll put the sketches for it up here.
So there's zombie concepting stuff and a little bit of bridgman studies. Then the charcoal drawing towards the end is a value study for the painting that's now almost done. The painting below that is a piece I did back in June without bothering to fully work it out before moving forward. Buut, I decided to put it up anyway.

Those zombies look like great fun, man! The pose on the lizard man looks a bit stiff (I think the back arches a bit too much, not sure though), but otherwise, they're sweet! I really like how you're pushing the anatomy there and getting away with it. Nice!
The old man's portrait looks fine, and i like how you used the different colors in light. Maybe that's why I think the pure white highlights near his right eye look a bit off: they push that volume a bit too much forward. My guess is if you tone them down, it'll look better. That said, the rest is good stuff, so keep 'em coming!

odiolitos: Thanks for the comments. Yeah the lizard man was meant to be seen from below, in perspective, with the viewer's eye level around it's knees; but I messed it up. So now he just looks like he might fall over. I kind of like the highlights on the old man. Not because they're good or appropriate, but because it makes him look kinda slimy. Thanks for the advice I'll keep it in mind for the next one!
I did two hours and twenty minutes today. Not really great.
Anyway, more zombie fish.
