    Nettle_Mountain: Here ya go my friend!

    Pochifux: Yea np, thanks for stopping by

    threecharles: Thanks man hope you had a great road trip!

    Thyname: Sounds good man, I hope you have a blast in Austin. Can't wait to see how fast you improve.

    Here is my sketches from the 3 weeks at the TAD workshop in KC. The other illustrations I was working on for the assignments I will post later once I go through them and make changes to fix them. The first several are all pen, then some pencil gestures and drawing. Watercolor pencil, charcoal, and white acrylic for the Ishtar page

    I was really inspired by George Pratt and Francis Vallejo to get into ink pen and brush. So here are some character studies that think I will start doing more often to try and increase my visual library for character design.

    Sweeeeet, looks like you kept yourself busy. It's great to see you working with different mediums, and I think you could be really good with pen and ink, seems to suit your style well. My only crit is that there's a definite lack of males so far.
    Looking forward to those finished illustrations!

    Peace
    Dan

    Andantonius: Thanks man! I'm getting a strong energy from the ink and feel I need to integrate that into my digital work.

    cyqunea: Thanks! Luis Royo was my largest inspiration on how to simplify the face

    Here is another page of studies, all ink pen and brush.

    what's awesome about these ink sketches is that they have already had a positive effect on your pencil work. You can see your lines have become more confident and fluid, and your sketches look so much cleaner.
    In other news.. the first sketch in this page is beautiful! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...3&d=1278823465

    I hope your enjoying it (it looks like you are), looking forward to more!

    Peace
    Dan

    Thanks Dan, getting a positive energy from the ink for sure. I really want to start integrating ink and digital and see what happens. Kind of similar to what I've done with this recent sketch; which is graphite, marker, digital. Oh yea and the first classes of TAD started today!! Gonna be intense

    Here is a bunch of studies in graphite and ink. The last three are some of my first assignments for T.A.D. The two abstracts are "Submission" and "Happy". Last piece is a master copy of Nikolai Fetchin.

    Hi! Thank you for the visit on my SB!
    I like a lot your ink drawing, someway they *flow* in a very cool way compared to the pencil ones...at least this is my own opinion. You seem to be so confident in your ink ones.
    I especially like the ones in post # 188
    And I fell in love for the colored girl in post #182
    Keep drawing!!

    I have a Blog!

    Hi Ninjac,
    thanks again for critiquing my SB. Very much appreciated. I've looked through your entire SB too and I can already see you improving over time, especially since you've joined TAD. Big congrats.
    I think I agree with a lot of other people who have given you critique so far. Your skill at drawing women is your strongest asset, epsecially faces. Your weakest skill seems to be digital painting, particuarly values and colour depth.. as other people have mentioned. My suggestion for digital painting would be to use a very hard round brush (to start off with)..and keep the opacity at 30 -50%. Even 10% for real subtlety . Make lots of strokes and keep adding a mixture of varying colours. Picking colours from within the painting can also unify the painting but still get a lot of colour depth because the layering of multiple strokes creates new colours. I've seen this technique being used a lot by professional painters on tutorials i've watched. As for the values.. you could practice with monotone painting, that way your values are more obvious to your eye and you can correct accordingly. Even with colour painting you could briefly desaturate your painting to check if your values are correct.

    Sorry for yapping on. Hope some of this helps :-)

    Thats looking great Josh, really nice lines in there. I'm curious as to how you used the water in the sketch? I've never heard of using water with graphite before.

    Take it easy man,

    Dan

    garethac thank you for taking the time to critique my work. I would agree that doing more full value scale work will help me to create form and depth. I have been trying to work from b/w reference to help with that but more monotone studies as you said would be a great help As far as color goes a lot of it is experimental so far but I have yet to demonstrate true understanding of the subject so I'll be looking to remedy that soon. Thanks again!

    Dan thanks! For this assignment we had to try to make our own portrait using what we learned in the previous master copy. I have some water graphite pencils that I used to get the texture on the hair. Just dip em in water and start drawing

    Here is a quick update, pushed some of the values and touched up some areas on the piece.

    ArghosRo thanks for the compliment! At the moment I work as an amateur artist making some money off my art but not enough to make a living, but I am evolving to become pro within a year or two.

    Here is some more class work.

    More lovely work, and those are great ref photos? Can I be cheeky and ask where you go them?

    Hehe thanks Dan, these reference photos are given to us in class. Some are from the Illustration Academy and some are new ones taken by Mr. English or Mr. Watkinson for TAD classes. They have a habit of giving us gorgeous ref photos

    Here is a an assignment that I did today. We had to go out and draw a building at least two stories high in its environment. ( ink, graphite, acrylic, water )

    Here is an update of two illustrations I have been working on for school. Both need several more hours of refinement and sensitivity handling to push mark making. Crits always welcome
