    alright so yeah, these were all done today (except simon he was done last night)
    i kinda went alright today, so that's good
    i'm going to try and do at least this amount of figure studies everyday
    suddenly realised that 'oh fuck i can't draw a figure, i've only been studying them when theyre sitting in front of me not in motion and shit' so i decided to do more studies from photos or books so yeah, expect more figures, if i dont do them you have the right to slice my throat guys, i'm counting on yous

    Yeah bro! You make me wanna get my ass in gear...I have an overdue Muybridge book from the library that I still haven't studied yet--it has thousands of his photos in it too!

    Simon looks good greyscale, but I find the colours a bit too saturated in the colour version, and I'm not too sure about the colour choices, they seem a bit arbitrary...why is the cast shadow bright blue and the form shadows bright purple? I find your colours from ref are pretty good, but from your imagination need a bit of work.

    And if you want to learn to draw the figure from imagination, try those double studies where the second one is from memory. I am honestly going to do so many more because I actually feel like I learn so much more from it than a regular study, and it trains my imagination painting. It also helps in the future with normal studies I think since it teaches your brain to absorb more from each study and pay attention more rather than simply blindly copying.

    Studies are looking good, dude. Sargent copies are always a good thing. Loving the figures in the sketchbook too. I'm not sure how accurate I am with this, but one thing I'll caution about- especially with the oil work, it looks like you're rushing through these, basically doing the same thing I was doing a while back because of watching speed-painting vids. SLOW DOWN! Especially when you're doing studies from observation, as in the self-portraits and oil work, it's okay if they take several hours- they're supposed to, and even if you only have a block-in after all those hours, that's fine, as long as it's accurate. It looks like you're scanning over your subject and racing to put the mark down. There's no rush. Spend 4 minutes looking and one minute painting. Even more importantly, look at your whole subject and not just the area you're painting (i.e. look at the eye in context of the head, not just at the eye). Squint a lot. This will also help you with edge handling- you tend to keep sharp edges all over the place, which is a common thing to do when you're zooming in on areas.

    Anywho, that's my fortune cookie wisdom of the week, keep up the studies!

    DAYUM! That shoe is sooooo good. I was waiting for it after I saw you said you wanted to do it because of SamC, but man, this is great. Only comment on it is that there is a tangent between the tip of he shoe and the right hand side of the canvas.

    IDOW is looking good too...maybe try playing with how the leaves are on it and how that will affect the light coming through them on to the sofa (you can probably get some interesting patterns of light and shadow going on it).

    really nice values on the shoe. did a little paintover on your couch in the jungle image. the perspective of the path, color of the shadows, where the light was shining on the couch, oh and little rockman wanted to be in it too. :]
    study foliage and how the light affects it. green isn't saturated green, it's more in the range of yellow/red. strange how that is, but i found it out by color picking forests and such and was like, "WHAAATTT!? HOW IS RED IN THERE IT LOOKS TOTALLY GREEN!!!" haha i love those revelations! ;]

    IDW turned out great; love the roots coming out of the sofa.

    For the ninjas, I think they are good, but I don't like the pure monochrome colour. Well, you can keep it monochrome, but it all is one hue. I assume you just put an overlay layer or something with a solid colour. A but more hue variation would help them I think.

    But yeah, good stuff man. I want more pencilssss, work on your rendering!

    Hey Ryan, long time since I've had a look in here, you're progressing well

    With your figure studies, maybe also try working on some larger paper and loosening up a bit, let it run. Keep up the good work!
