    prsnsweeney: Thanks for checking out my sb Yep better contrast and a higher value range is what I'm pushing in my current work.

    Some more ink life drawing

    those ink and pencil life drawings are great, I really like your lines and a lot of them work well as whole page compositions as well as individual sketches. Maybe try blocking in some value in some of them as well. I like them as they are tbh, but I felt the need to crit, feel free to ignore me :p

    Keep it up maaaaaaaaaayn

    Oh you were so excited that you posted twice Dan? hehe. Thanks for the encouragement.

    I bought my very first moleskin sketchbook and I gotta say I'm loving it! Holds up excellent to pen and pencil. Going to be experimenting with marker soon. Until then here is some character sketches and some life drawing.

    Great sketchbooks. I love the layering you do, it adds so much movement. I think your pen stuff kicks ass, keep that up! For the tech speed paint the focal point seems to be at the engines but I think that is letting down the composition. If you make the silhouette of the ship darker (and have the highest contrast of values at this point it with teh bright sun light sky behind) it could help the composition and focus your eye on the front of the ship which would not be too far a leap to look at the city next.

    Is that any help?

    JasonHickey: Thanks for the concept sketch tip Jason. I'll be sure to work that in to the piece.

    Here is some more ink and marker life drawing and a quick digi from life.

    Loving the sketchpages man, but in your character sketches you seem to be making the heads too big, watch those proportions. The face on lilith is awesome btw! You should paint it up!

    Thanks Dan, I felt something was off on Odin but I thought it was the size of the legs. The head makes more sense thanks!! When I get a few more sketches drawn up I'm thinking of a series of larger compositions utilizing all of them.

    Here is a quick figure study from photo ref. ( Hong Ly, Characterdesigns.com )
    Spent about 1.5 hours trying to push my mark making

    Wip for a Kitchen Arena battle. Topic is : All the mortal combat characters are now old and wise, and their days of fighting are now long gone. Think of where your character will end up in? Rich, with lots of grandchildren, or maybe living in the gutter begging for change? Maybe a professor/sensei in a martial arts academy? It's up to you.

    I picked Kitana, and in her later years she goes back to her home land to reclaim the throne and lead her people, leaving her deadly fans to rest at the altar.

    great pose on her! and I like the blue colour scheme. Look forward to seeing it progress.
    Also have you considered doing the CHOW this week? I think it could be something you'd enjoy, it involves a naked girl :p

    Peace!
    Dan

    Thanks Dan, after I finish this arena piece I'll move on to the Chow. Sounds like a great topic. Thanks for the tip. I'll be pretty busy starting Monday. I'll be in KC for the 3 week kick off workshop for TAD, but I think I can fit it in.

    Here is a quick landscape from life, about a half hour.
