    Your thief piece is coming along nicely. I think she needs to be facing the Knight since it doesn't read as if she's stalking him now.

    Sickbrush: how did you get into my head? Thanks Cristian, you're absolutly right, I really need to just knuckle down and start pumping out the stuff with less doubt and less worry about the outcome. Gotta make that leap! - I see it now, looking back over this last page there's too little progress for the amount of so-called "updates". Thanks for the comment!

    Ste: Thanks Ste! I think you're right.


    Somehow these pencil sketches took up far more time than I would have liked, anyway to make up here's some thumbs I did several weeks ago too.

    Here's some nudes (2 1hour studies from ref and one done from memory for a bit longer) and a guard for good measure:

    Nice updates! I'm digging the landscapes on post #557... i suppose the last one was quite fun to paint.., great idea on the armor thumbs, did it became a bit tedious after a while for you? the guard is looking good, keep it up man, looking forward for more

    Also, thanks for stopping by my thread!

    GPozzo: Thanks G! I didn't mind the tedium when I was doing those, which was during breaks I took whilst doing the last catch of arch-vis renders for my final project in college. No problem about the thread support too, only happy to!


    Here's what I got up to today landscape studies, a quick landscape sketch (with a nod to SMILEFACE!) and a character sketch:

    hey man, stuffs lookin good! just a few quick suggestions:
    dont get caught up in details on your faces. you sometimes draw all the features as if they are all on one flat plane, dont forget they wrap around the head. plot everything out in perspective, then go in and detail.
    other than that, i would just suggest working on studies/pieces longer to see how far you can push them. keep up the hard work

    More studies and stuff. The giant crab is a WIP for COW.

    SMILEFACE: Thanks man! Haha!

    Some more studies, just looking at what I felt was of immediate importance for my COW challenge entry, notably simplifying silhouettes of background characters (the Baratheon / Lannister troops in the back of the GoT screenshot study - I'll actually continue working on this one as I'm enjoying it but also using it to investigate representing different materials) and the general palette and lighting of the elephant photo. Lastly a quick block-in over a sketch that I pulled together with a quick cheat from SketchUp to set up the camera angle and perspective (not that it's a demanding scene, just wanted to give it a try):

    Wanted to sketch today but it appears someone is borrowing my pencil... still life based on a Sackboy figure, with the pose and button eyes modified somewhat. Also, an armour study to help some pieces I'm currently working on, a quick alchemy sketch that may become an enviro painting sometime in the near future.

    Update on the mounted knight, still have quite a way to go with it, for example that mane and the half-timbered architecture are still screaming at me, which means studies are needed!:

    Attended a life drawing workshop today, challenged myself to attempt to do a portrait of the model from memory afterwards. The likeness is close enough to the image in my head, but at the same time there was sufficient floundering about required to get there to mean that some serious study is in order to get better at imaginative portraits:

    Man you have been busy since I was last in here. I always love you environment studies and great job on the portrait from memory in your final post.
