    nice dude! good hand study (the very first one looks odd though…)
    I hope being in the same SSG will motivate ourselves to draw harder!
    speaking of hard work, your portraits need some. But your dedications good so I dont worry bout you! and why do I have the feeling of recognizing your sketchz

    cheers

    Chriss.zed: Thanks a lot for my first comment
    bigfootrooper: Thanks for the comment. I agree, and get ready for some longer portraits.

    Here is some more stuff. Oil paints, Acrylics, Pencils, Pen and paper. (all of these were pretty short time wise) The skull was on the thinnest paper known to man.

    Where in Scotland?

    Alright, couple of things...

    The pencils could use more contrast, they lack dark values especially when compared to the pen drawings.

    You can get a Wacom Bamboo for just over £50. They are only A6 and they lack some of the extras, but they are really good value, better than what I had for 2 years.

    The studies are great. Try and get into of the habit of drawing from your mind too. You don't have to post the crappier stuff you do, but it gets ideas flowing.

    In my opinion, gesture and figure are better starting points than anatomy and features. Try and do gesture studies too, and focus on visualising force and volume. You can get more done and the anatomy and feature studies can be applied on top.

    Keep it up!

    And yeah, I have thought about a tablet, but I can't afford one (not even a cheap one (I crashed my car into a bmw ) I like traditional right now anyway. I love getting my hands dirty. Thanks a lot for the comment. And I do draw doodles from my mind, but I don't have a lot of thoughts that I have the skill to draw yet.
    Thanks for the tips.

    What ManMadGod said. Though you don't really NEED need it a WAcom and PS. If anything, it'd probably spoil you silly. It's spoiled me for sure.

    Nice to see you back in action man
    The last tap looks really solid nice work.
    If you want to get better at potraits go back to basics, drawing in structure lines etc, I think I need to do it again myself.
    Look forward to watching your progress.
    again....





    Currently looking for work!

    Man Made Go: Working on the contrast man. I half blame my scanner, but I know you won't believe me. The pens I adjusted the levels, but when I do that to my pencils they look like ass. Thanks for the comment.
    walnut: Thanks for the comment, and yeah, a tablet would be far too much for me right now. I can't even use a pencil half decent yet!
    bigfooTrooper: Yeah, I hate rich people. Thanks
    Dilated: Thanks, thanks and yeah. I am working on faces

    Here is some of the stuff. Some I couldn't be bothered scanning. I am taking longer on my sketchbook stuff, and I am gonna actually plan a composition before I start them from now on.
    A few drawings of my hand while I was at work. A portrait page, and a figure study. I am annoyed at a few silly mistakes, especially in the portraits. I need to use the gray matter a bit more when drawing.
    I am gonna do more painting this week.

    Walid D - Thanks man dog.
    Here is a stuff dump. Expect lots of large updates this week as I am on holiday.
    In this it includes a long painting (it says 2-3 hours in), it is for the final piece for my garden shit expressive unit. The worst thing is that I feel that in every stroke I make, I learn something, so I wanna start again every time. Ah well. I can't stretch canvas at home.
    Everything looks worse here due to my shitty photography skills.
    I have done loads more, lot of eyes and stuff. Gonna do an oil portrait this weekend hopefully.

    Nice work ! your bargue studies is cool, maybe try to use a bigger range of values ! The oil iis good, you're thinking about light and shadow ! Now i know that it's hard to mix colors, but it will come with practice, so do more of oils !!! Keep working
