Lovely life drawings! Studies are always good and I've heard life drawings from models are just invaluable. So keep doing them for sure.
I think a thing to do with those would be to change the focus every session. For a couple of sessions focus only on life and getting good line drawn figures. Then move onto form, get form down with nice lines. Then add some rendering, so now you have line --> form --> light(rendering) and it's all building up. Other times only focus on the arm/leg/head etc and other times do gesture.
Just focus and get the most out of it then apply it in imagination.
You're doing great though. Very hard working and you're signature is true! Winners make it happen, losers make it happen. Just chose to be a winner! GO!
*Lilnebo thanks for the tips. I'll keep those suggestions in mind. I need to be a little more technical and focused with my approach. life drawing And the song on my signature is thomas phusion's keep goin' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HB34_...ext=1&index=42 a very good song when your down or if you need some encouragement
*Angry filipino I'll be a little more hard working and keep it going
*jackpot thanks man. I'll work on gestures and weight. Which is real fun. This is a good book to look at to that shows a lot of good examples of gestures and weight.http://www.amazon.com/Force-Dynamic-...=18IKGJ6UJOBEN
The oil painting i finished a couple of weeks ago was a still life of all black objects with black cloth. Also here is the 98 swatches of hell. And the doodle of the anime girl i drew was to make fun of the way I used to wanted to draw. and more sketches
Thanks Mary-cherry-me! I have been following your sb too! Lots of different designs and concepts that I like too. Although it is no longer summer keep drawing any season! Happy drawing and best regards!
Recent stuff I have completed this past week I'll slowly fill in other sketches and stuff I was working on while I was awol.
Hiya! It's good to see how much you've improved since you first posted, keep up the good work
For the girl with the hammer(I'm presuming it's a weightless hammer?), make a model sheet so the hammer remains the same size in comparison with the girl. Consider either downsizing it or give it the ability to grow/shrink otherwise it'll take up unneeded space if you draw it in a comic, plus it won't look so stupid when she puts it down.
The anime girl has really unfocused eyes. This is a common problem I keep seeing. A good trick for getting this right is to take away the irises, then see if what direction the person is looking at is still recognisable.
In your anime picture...less so. I traced over it quickly in photoshop:
Posemaniacs is a great site, but not very good for realistic weight distribution so you know.
Great sketchbook, your posts have vastly improved since your first. Bridgman and loomis studies looks very nice. Your head studies a few posts back are also spot on! One critique I do have though, Is that while your shape of your heads are great, but I think you have a tendency to draw them a bit to big. Otherwise, keep up the good work!
"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye." Matthew 7:3-5
Hihi! everybody happy winter! Just thought I had a break through moment with the last 2 digital paintings I had. Huge improvement between the two. I'm real happy with the new direction I'm taking!
Belarin Thanks for the in depth analysis of the works. And the suggestions to improve various mistakes. I'll keep portion in mind.
Thank you Surion I sometimes forget to remember these sayings myself You keep at it too. Don't give up.
Falchion aww thank you. will do.
Rhoades Thank you so much for the critique! I had never noticed it before...and your right the heads are way too huge. So I fixed it up for the newer pieces. And I keep it in mind now. Nice eye to catch that
err and more sketches and thumbnails are to come soon...real soon
Thanks OmertA! Glad you like it. I hope to improve with even the next one.

Here's a few other final versions of the veils piece without the green highlights, unfinished sketches and current wips. Which will ironically carry over to the new year. Oh well. I'm am being a better artist now and in the future.
