    You doin' Loomis, too?
    I started two weeks ago and am still trying to stick with it. What are you working at in the moment?
    Nice shading lines, though I am not sure if you respect the light and shadow sin them completely.

    Cheers

    Janos:Thanks for stopping by, im focusing on figure drawing, male mostly at the moment, once i memorize all the main muscles and study the skeletal structure i'll focus more heavily on women. I havn't tried a proper values study yet, but i know what u mean i wasnt observing the shadow enough. cheers for the comment.

    Da Streets:cheers man, yea it's loomis, his book on figure drawing is fantastic, best teacher i never met

    Some more loomis studies, and a bunch of pen drawings trying to get a hang of drawing women, my mega weak point.

    Why can't I go to a boatyard?
    Nevermind. I like your study of the boat. You could try aging it with dirt or seashells. Keep them coming.

    Thanks for the crits on my sketchbook, guess we are in the same boat ;D just that you read Loomis and I read Burne Hogarth. I can really recommend his books. Dont like Hogarths drawing style but his way of explaining anatomy so you understand is really good. Draw more so I can see your work, like what you shown so far. Feed that paper dude!

    w.i.p

    Kristo Novo, Lilnebo, poydrawer, chopin lover and PieMonster cheers for dropping by and taking the time to comment, appreciate it

    Right, kinda been busy with work so havnt done much sketchings, will rectify that soon.
    Here's a w.i.p that im slowly getting through, its not a new sketch so the anatomy is a bit weird in some places. Anybody got some helptful tips or crits please do comment. Done the base colours and shaded the upper body and red hand slightly more. I'm a bit scared to keep going lighter and lighter and trying not to lose too much saturation as i go along O_o. yea *stops rambling* crits, help would be great

    Hi Chris -

    I think it could do with highlights and some specular - it's all a bit flat, dark and same-tone looking at the moment.

    tbh though I don't know how to paint a person, particularly skin - maybe find a good tutorial!

    Hey!

    Thanks for looking into my sketchbook and the advice.
    Good studies i see, i like your photoshop painting of the prothese girl.
    I only think that you may want to draw more relaxed muscles on some parts of the prince of persia guy and the futuristic guy with blue clothes.
    Seems like there supertense

    AlexTooth: cheers, ur right. i was gonna do some other sketches but i read ur comment and thought id do some more on this today. its not there yet at all, each step is uncharted territory really so dunno how its gonna look after each highlight. but liking the progress at the moment.

    Nils Raave: no problem. thanks for the comment. yea the blue shorts dude was just a random sketch to see what i learned from previous studies.
    and the latest dude is just tense atm

    a small update on this w.i.p. c&c encouraged, dont be shy
