    Some more studies. Still nothing yet more exciting for you than practice, but I did two imaginative heroic proportioned figures in anticipation of some character work soon to come!

    As always, all and any comments and criticism, no matter how harsh, is greatly appreciated!!!

    Still life from this morning; approx 2-3hrs. Irish summers don't lend themselves to still life studies, when I started this the sun was shining in on me, by the time I finshed it was dull, overcast and threatening rain so few spectacular speculars!

    beautiful stuff. Your anatomy work is really great.

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    Some snazzy shit in here!
    Your constructed figures from imagination are rather good sir, and I really admire the way you're actually constructing them, seems to really work for you! I am jealous!
    I only flicked through a few pages, but it seems to me that one thing you seem to be missing is longer studies. Really sitting down and pushing a painting/drawing for 10 hours or however long it takes, and taking it as far as you can will really help you with noticing and remembering details, not to mention building your patience. Quicker studies are obviously important but won't help you with really finishing things in a way that long studies can.

    Take it easy, peace!

    danlambert: Thanks Dan! If I could double thank that post I would! I never considered committing to a longer study for some reason.. Coreectio, I never committed to anything over mybe 3 hours in this sketchbook! Well we can't have that can we!!

    And in a completely hypocritical manner I am now going to post some short life studies!! Namely, 2 15min poses and one 1hour study (what our group refers to as long!).

    Here's some studies, some gestures, a character I began today (who's ankles are probably too thick) and a study I've been taking my time with.

    Enjoy!!

    Brandon Pilcher: Thanks Brandon!

    Typically, the day I go to life drawing having strained my shoulder we get this male model doing all these great action packed short poses that I just can't get down in time! That being said I am fairly happy with this hour long pose, something finally clicked as 45mins in I strated applying shading in planes to the forehead. Then I abandoned the rest of the figure to focus on the bust.

    Put some more work into the archer character, slapped on rudimentary values for fun.
    Also, put another hour or so into that study.

    Some stuff from today, mostly gestures, some figures from imagination and a bit of fun with that last character (actually this is probably my first attempt at painting flesh from imagination - therefore crits are especially welcome - advice anyone?).

    Studies are looking great man- figures look well constructed!
    That last painting, it looks a little flat right now, especially the hair- i think that is throwing it off right now, because it makes the rest of the head feel flat...keep working on it, break out some reference if you get stuck! keep it up!

    So many figures! O.O awesome stuff man. Are you in college?
    Dont forget to do lots of imaginative stuff too! Easy to forget why your studying, hate it when it happens.

    Sealegs: Thanks man!! Yeah, I just threw that on flat deliberatly so I could compare the face against something that wasn't flat white! Maybe it didn't have the effect I expected!

    Malakuko: Thanks Marc! Yeah, but not art college. I'm studying Architecture in UCC, going into 4th year in sept. God, I know.. really need to tip the balance back towards the imaginative stuff, need to stop getting carried away fussing over studies! Thanks again!


    Here's some stuff from today and yesterday, nudes (approx 3hrs each) and a quick and sloppy soldier concept (can you tell I often visit characterdesigns.org ).

    Gah, attatchment manager is on a go-slow...

    Anyway, if it wants to it will display today's endeavors. Some 30minute colour studies and a bit of progress on that character (taking my time and thinking it through as much as I can before comitting to anything - please check for weaknesses in the face, hair and flesh [here's a head start - I'm not entirely comfortable with the positioning of the mouth with respect to the placement of the other features..).

    Enjoy!

    Didn't get much done yesterday, made a tiny bit of progress of that character, just realised the silhouette reads as if she's wearing a ballgown!

    Nice studies mate!!! You have to play with the edges (and rendering better the form) after you block down the values or the colors. I mean the rough color blocking may be accurate but you have to blend it etc. Btw i would pay a little more attention to the colors because they seem to have some more black in them. Keep up the good work

    kingkostas: Thanks mate! That means a lot. Not sure what you mean regarding the blackness of the colours, care to elaborate?

    Here's some small progress... I hope to get the head down shortly, going to make an attempt at the Golden Boy challenge this month. Could do with an incentive to get some serious study done. Also, I've signed up for the CGMW Advanced Figure Drawing with Michael Hampton so before that starts I've been doing some last minute cramming from his book, which I'll try scan in tomorrow with the associated studies.

    Been doing some intense studying today trying to work my way through the material in Micheal Hampton's book in preparation for the online course (there's a bit of Alex P influence showing through in one or two figures there) all either from the book or external reference. Also, please find attatched a photostudy, I'm happy enough with it at the moment (though that will soon change), I think I'll try polish it up a bit more tomorrow though.

    Wow your figure work is getting really good. Its really paying off, characters have a good weight and position, they feel good.
    Dont neglect stuff like clothing/folds though. You can draw a good figure but most of the time you gotta be able to do clothes/attire well to match it!

    Keep up the good work anyways, I really like the last batch of anatomy studies. Some great stuff in there.
