    Well, I'll give it a shot. I've been trying to wrap my head around shadow anatomy (for lack of a better term. Halftones, highlights, core shadows, reflected light) in the basic form stuff but often I have trouble separating them. And of course I'm struggling with physically making the marks - placing a stroke where I want it to go, and in the shape I want it. Slowing down definitely seems like a good plan, though time, as always, is limited. We'll see what I can manage.

    A cube. Used a reference image from this thread since I don't have any cubes handy, and it seemed like part of the exercise is figuring out equivalent distances in perspective. Spent some time on it. Not sure I got the angles right...

    Playing with that character again. I'll dig out the wooden blocks and try some more in depth studies tomorrow.

    Post 1501 and 1502 are good studies.

    The cube's cast shadow would probably get softer/fuzzy as it goes further out.

    nice studies you do, I like all the dynamic poses, you work hard.

    I can't figur out though how you can struggle drawing that cube, you have a sketch on page 50 that uses vanishing points, just apply those vanishing points to your cube and you'll see that the angles are incorrect and you'll be able to fix them. Also the shadow is strange, you have a shaded side that casts no shadow, it's like the light and the shadow don't line up.

    Thanks for the comments! The shadow definitely does get softer in the reference.

    Not sure how I missed using the vanishing points on the cube - I think i was too caught up in vanishing points being for construction rather than working from reference. Gotta remember this for next time.

    For now though, a couple sketched character ideas.

    Another iteration of a cube from this thread, this time remembering the use of vanishing points.

    very nice latest cube and handle.

    there was a post further back, about taking your time with drawing. those blocks really show it. your painting and traditional sketches reflect your understanding of shadow: stop doing them with digital ink unless you are practicing ink techniques. i would say put down the digital for a while and pick up a big, big piece of paper and fill it with one sketch. lots of lines, small and light, building into the shadow. lighten up your strokes.

    take a peek at my SKETCHBOOK?

    I am attempting to work on ink techniques. Don't think this method is quite working for it though. Either I need to tweak the tablet settings or (more likely) use actual ink.

    An apple, and the same apple after I ate most of it, from life. Tried lightening my strokes in these and had difficulty keeping them consistent.

    Short on time today, and felt like something fun was a good idea. So I did a couple thumbnails to figure out a composition and another character idea.
