    Good edges, especially on the chap's hair and on the creases in his shirt.
    It's a nice practice piece. Keep going.

    You commented in my sketchbook a while back so now I'm returning the favor. There really isn't a whole lot I can say. You're quite a bit further along than I am, but you still have a ways to go. Don't stop posting.

    Hey jeremyg0rdon.

    I'm liking the new studies. I agree with the others though you should work on getting the darks darker and the lights lighter. It was one of the hardest steps I had to take. But it really makes the drawings look much more real.

    Quick question - what digital painting tutorials are you using?

    For now I'm just doing digital painting tutorials I find on deviantart and on this website (just very basic ones). Also, ImagineFX has some great tutorials I've looked at. I'm starting out with general tutorials and experimenting with brushes, doing studies, and then when I've got the basics down I'm going to work on more advanced tutorials, including the idrawgirls site tutorials and Massive Black video tutorials.

    Thanks for all the comments people, I'll post up some new stuff when I can get to a scanner (and will have some more digital practice to show).

    Nice update! You should try to push one of your painting (or compose a new one) to a more finished look. I learned so much from doing such. But don't forget the studies too. Keep the balance . Your pencil drawings are improving, i see. Keep it up.

    I'm making mess here: Sketchbook .
    also on dA and blogspot

    Hey Jeremy

    Your construction seems pretty solid. A few things which I noticed so far, try to watch how you use your line thickness, shapes and masses which are closest to us should be thickest.
    The one where your model moved, I feel that her eyes are too big, try to be mindful of the proportion as you sketch from life. Keep things light and try to work on the picture as a whole I feel.

    A nice selection of study from the books and life.

    It was from a tutorial, so yeah and it helped me learn a few things about painting eyes. Next I'll be doing another eye and some fabric, fire, fur, etc. I'll post those up pretty soon hopefully, and more drawings will be up within the week.

    One thing with illustrations is that we should probably know what the message is that you're trying convey. It can be difficult to assess without knowing the idea you have in mind I suppose, or perhaps some title in the piece itself.

    Keep working hard, looking forward to your next piece.

    True, the idea for that illustration was: Lil Wayne's prison sentence delayed due to dental work.

    Hey, not too bad, the idea comes across well. I like the strong sense of hatching too.
    Although I feel the teeth seem to be joined together, just slightly, not by much, it's iffy.

    Some very nice work here, loving the illustration peices.

    Your blending and line work are all improving rapidly, but I think you should spend more time rendering up your portait work, light and darks etc.

    Keep it up.

    I like what I see here The Lil' Wayne illustration is spot on. However, I'm afraid messages weren't conveyed that well in previous ones. The Death one seems a bit random. People here already said what I wanted to say, so no need for repeats!

    Have you tried Linda Bergkvist's eye tutorial?

    Thanks for all of the critiques everyone, I'll try to work on more fully rendered stuff for next time (such as self portraits)
    And no, I haven't done that eye tutorial but I think I will; thanks for the recommendation! : ]

    Here are some sketches from the past week:

    Hey bro

    I see much improvement in your lines, especially in the last page of your works. I'm not sure whether I should suggest anything to you at the moment, except perhaps to progress to expressing the entire body and faces.

    Keep working and looking forward to your next pieces.

    Thanks kungfoowiz, actually after I finish going through anatomy and Bridgman studies I plan to do a lot more stuff from imagination (though I'll try to do what you said soon). I feel like right now I'm just developing my foundational knowledge of the body.

    Here are a few new pages.

    Hey Jeremy

    I like your muscle and bones here, they're pretty tasty.

    One thing I'm picking up on though in your work, is that things which you aren't too familiar with, you tend to draw them flat. Try to imagine these things as volume first, forget about the line for a moment. You could then use this to guide your linework. Okay, that's just idea alright, but from looking at your imaginitive stuff that's how I feel.

    Edward

    You're getting better with expressing anatomical features. I really need to open up a Bridgman one of these days.

    Hey Jeremy,

    I think you're getting better. The sketches feel more confident. And the lines are getting a better quality.

    I'd love to see you take some of your imagination drawings a little further though.

    Out of curiosity, which Bridgeman books are you using?
