    Great sketchbook dude! The skeleton studies in post #302 are great, and your still life study is just excellent. I noticed that in your studies from a few months ago, you seemed to be having some difficulty using the full value range, but you seem to have made a huge improvement in that area since then. This is especially evident in your still life study, which has a wonderful sense of volume and form. So I don't really have any crits or anything; I think you're making huge strides in the right direction, so keep up the good work!

    Jephyr X: Why thank you sir


    Here are some thumbnails for an upcoming illustration for composition class. The assignment is called Dream tellers. The compositions don't currently address the title as well as they could, but I really like the designs thus far. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.

    Great work in here as usual mate, I particularly like the black and white ones a few posts back, good to see something different from you.
    How long are you at TAD for now? How are you finding everything?

    I really like that last one, great colours and textures. I would have that on my wall for sure, love it!
    Those thumbnails for the illustration look cool as well, looking forward to seeing it finished!

    Peace!

    Dan: Thanks man!! We are just about done with the second semester then I have another year and a half of my entertainment art major. I've learned so much and worked harder then I ever had, and have had insane opportunities to meet top artists or show my work to art directors. I just hope I pass all my classes so I can move on to my major, or I might have to repeat a semester. Either way it will work out in the end. I do have prints of the "Chaos Flower" for sale at http://joshua-calloway.artistwebsites.com

    Here are some skeletons from imagination for class. Next step is to add muscles then gesture sheets of them. An update on a still life study with 2 that have lighting from imagination.

    The worgen's well done. The only thing that stands out to me is that the snout seems too narrow, and the head overall could use work, seems a bit plasticy. Rest of it is fanastic. Good luck in the competition!

    The still life studies are beautifully done

    Colours on those still lives are beautiful Josh. I think I prefer the 2nd one, little more subtle. But both lovely none the less

    I checked out that site you linked of yours, I love that ink of nyc. And if I get the job I've trialed at last few days I shall order a print of the chaos flower, assuming the postage isn't ridiculous

    Umbravita: Thanks! So I was one of the students who got to show the WoW card art to the Senior Art Director from Blizzard. Omg what an opportunity that I don't think could have happened without TAD. His feedback was to knock back the spell so it isn't so bright so the focus is on the head more, and some minor issues with the face and alignment of some of the armor. With those fixes he said I would have a strong piece

    danlambert: Thanks man! I always appreciate your support.

    Here is an update on the muscle structure for skinny folks. Second piece is a personal work. I haven't done a portrait in awhile so I needed to paint my two favorite characters. They will be the main two characters in a future illustrated novel that is in the works. Drawing in overdrive

    Here is some progress on my Dream Tellers piece for finals. Still have to work out my light and color. Got some great feedback from Jon Foster about clarifying the legs and moving the foot out of the corner of the composition. Gonna be a challenge to have it read and have the dress obscure the form.

    I hate you for having Jon Foster give you advice, love that man's work.
    Look great man, nice subtle colour palette and the pose is great. I think keeping your colours a little more reserved on this piece might be a good idea, looking forward to see you push it further.

    Peace

    Thanks Dan, this is has been a challenging piece but here is a progress update. I like the muted palette but I still feel the colors get a bit muddy is some areas and could harmonize better. Some areas seem too flat too. I'll do some color studies and see what works and bring it all to a nice polish.

    I found an interesting article that talked about the way Frank Frazetta drew women. He had a distinctive style that was quite attractive. Basically he made the breasts, hips, and thighs full and thick. He then made the wrists, ankles, hands, feet, waist and neck smaller. He would also show some of the ribs pushing on the surface of the torso. With this combo he achieved very curvy but petite and fit looking women so I decided to try out his proportion combo turning normal looking women into Frazetta girls

    Here is a wip of one of Kekai Kotaki's sketches. I'v always loved his work but was intimidated by it at the same time. So I finally decided to try and tackle a piece to see what I could learn. Woa man did the knowledge start to soak in. It took me back to my roots of addative and subtractive drawing and really not every using "ctrl z". It also helped me to understand that I don't need the 342 brushes that were in my original set. I riddled it down to 19 that I'll use now. Much more efficient. They are a combo of Kekai's, Marta Dahlig's, and my own custom brushes. The second piece is a portrait of a friend after studying Kekai to see what I learned and how I could incorporate it into my own work.

    Love the colours in both those pieces, especially in the hair on that 2nd one. Could you post a link to the actual kekai image? I don't think I've seen it before
