    Ca doesn't seem to be working for me lately but I will try to post something here. Screw lines, details, and everything else. Form and colour studies are my focus right now so there isn't much to show really. I did a little cloth thing, and I am going to do more speeds of women.

    pijus- Thanks, I'm trying.

    mike butkus- Thanks man, hopefully I am showing some progress recently.

    AphexTweak- Sweet, I will try to keep it up.

    MatejaPetkovic- I normally use some ref for studies and try to change it somewhat to make it more interesting. Then I apply what I learned from the study to more imaginative work. Most of the time I don't use ref, but I am trying to use more as it can only help me get better I think.

    - Thanks, I'm not sure if I am qualified to write any but I have been working on some. I find it helps me to explain what I'm doing to someone else. I will post them if I ever finish.

    - I'm 29, I have been playing with digital for about 10-11 months now I guess. Your english is fine and I will check out your book.

    Shadow Stalker- Sure man. I was wrong in that email, try the smaller file first. Good luck man.

    - Well I have been trying out a number of different brushes. I will upload them somewhere I guess. Sometimes I use Zhuzhu, Daarken, Blur's, Bumskee's. My favorite are the calligraphic though, I think they are default. Also some sort of chalk and a random background.

    jcpahl- Haha, thanks man. The title sounds wrong, just something I used to write in my sketchbook.

    BlazeF- Thank you. I recently decided to give up everything that was stealing my time like video games and women and race cars. I want to improve more than anything else.

    zweiDee- Thanks man!

    chr!z- Thanks a lot for the comment.

    Grandmassa Mr. Spect- You're crazy man. Your latest stuff was pretty close I think.

    Noro- Hell yeah, that's what its all about. I don't want to stagnate, I don't care about impressing anyone or making lots of money. Everybody told me for years to just sell portraits or realistic paintings but I knew that I wasn't pushing myself and I felt terrible about everything I did even though they liked it. I really try to analyze every drawing and shame myself into improving, recently I decided that I spend too much time on details, linework and results.

    So now I will focus more on form and accurate colour and value on each stroke rather than blending and layering. The results aren't great but I think I am learning more than doing a five hour detail fest.

    If I suck at something then it is a waste of time to worry about it even for a second. Examine the nature of the problem and devote all of one's energy to solving it. If there is no solution then there is no point worrying about it or wishing for something we can't have. Art is something that we can change just by doing it, it is so simple. If your anatomy is suspect then discover why it is bad and spend more time working on that. All of us probably waste more time day dreaming or hoping than we do acting on those dreams. I don't like that so I will try to change, I will get better because I want to so much.

    Wow! I wish I've spent more time nailing traditional before I made the switch. I love your values and brush strokes. I too have also fallen into the death trap of worrying too much about detail and not enough time on values form and accurate colour. Very Inspirational to hear about how much time we spend worrying and hoping rather than actually spending the time to do it.

    -Zach mate, I hope you're doing character design for a company/ or freelancing with these skills. It's unfair not to share it otherwise.

    hey colly that looks great but try to use slightly different hues for each value not just different brightnes of the same color.
    your work is truly inspiring, looking forward to see your new stuff

    Really, really beautiful work man. You have great line control. I think you should play more with color. It's pretty fantastic when you do.

    Not too much to say today, I've been working at colour more and have a WIP Priest/Alchemist guy. I'll paint it out but the B+W is for the client.

    Shadow Stalker- Thank you for reminding me, your new stuff is sweet.
    sevarenge- Thanks a lot man.
    D.aligh- Yeah just do it. Listen to some Bobby Chiu or something and hurt that canvas.
    Spreggo- Thank you Spreggo
    MrChow- That's a good idea man.
    Jason Ross- Thanks Jay, I'm working hard.
    palladium-Thanks a lot I appreciate that.
    dwardo- Thanks man, I always need more work.
    MrChow- Thanks again, I'm focusing on more colour lately.
    Tripage- Thank you I will do that.
    andres333- Oh I didn't mean you, just something I used to say to adults who wanted me to be nice when I was a kid. I'm glad I could help, if you have any questions then just ask.

    Thanks Cubesoflard, I am almost finished with that one.


    Started a Caravaggio this morning, mostly blocked in extremities and spent an hour or two on the head and red/leather shirt. Concentrating on colour and saturation, his nose is so red and yellow it was surprising when I got in there.

    Hey man
    thanks for checking out my fledgling sketchbook. I love the characters you've done here, especialy that last one. You've also given me some ideas about how to do some anatomy studies.

    To answer your question, I have some bridgeman books, and a loomis (?) pdf. I will be using the bridgeman the most just because its in print.

    great stuff here. Thought the portrait on the first page was a photo for a min...

    I love the colours in The Supper at Emmaus. Good subject to copy for the values and hues contained in it. Is that direct in scale and proportion to the original? I thought his left arm was more extremely foreshortened than your version.... I suppose I could go google it but it's late here. Yours seems less out of proportion than my memory of the real versh, so I thought at first glance you were correcting it. I like it a lot, good study.

    Oh wow, Zach. You have outdone yourself this time. These past two updates were absolutely incredible and awe-inspiring. Really, excellent job.

    I love the medieval garbs that you painted and the anatomy is sick, man.

    Damn, you're values are just too good. Really inspiring stuff. That Caravaggio study is also looking sweet. Reminds me again of the importance of doing master studies.

    Btw, I would like to hang that Pacino portrait on my wall, it's just so cool.
