    Wow, you're really churning out poses here! You are an example to me, I should really work on more studies. The profile and lighting studies you do must be really useful in learning about figure.

    By the by, I really love the colours on the last (purple) drawing of your June 15th post!

    Good SB you got here, with lots of studies already! Don't forget to implement it, would love to see some own drawings from the good ol' imagination. Keep it up!

    Hey there, great figurative work so far! I recognize some of Hogarth's Dynamic Figure Drawing in post #25 ^^

    For the little red box painting, perhaps it would save you time to do some color swatches before the actual painting. Mix up your color, paint them onto a strip of white paper, then hold the paper up in front of you and see how close it is the local color of the object (if you're painting from life; if you're painting from a photo then just set your swatch next to the photo and compare). In general I feel the color you used was too dark and too saturated compared to the photo. Objects in real life tend to be far more neutral than we realize. Your red box is actually very orange. It probably seems very red to you because it's sitting on a green surface, but in comparison to your painting, the yellow of the box is evident.

    hey awesome work! the poses with different light sources are really cool, looks like a lot of fun, and the sp ain't bad by any means! it looks like you're using a darkish pencil for hatching, maybe try a simple HB, you should be able to get all the values that way. and just try to identify different planes and hatch in the direction of the plane... but I think you've got the idea! the painting is pretty sweet!

    Fightingseraph: thanks

    snootchy: thanks man I do not use a ref, since the goal of the excersize is to learn to create light on your own in a convincing way---but I do need to get my hands on some casts and start studying light outside of these exercises. In my next update though I used a ref for the anatomy. And thank you, I forgot about the technical aspect of hatching.

    Grandmassa: lol thanks! hahahah it's ok, i get that from my bf's friends too xD haha maybe i will redraw the wtf thing then and make it an actual thing xD

    Maija: Thanks I feel honored to be an example because there are truly some better ones int his forum

    Tom: Thanks man, I will try to upload some more of my independent stuff---I usually never feel good about a piece to post it but hey, it's a SB thread for a reason

    dierat: Yeh, well it doesn't help i was using alizerian, so when mixed with the yellow it came out brown instead of orange : / i do plan to redo it in acryic and correct the colors, as well ast he values Thanks!

    papervampire: thanks for the advice! I will try using HB from now on and try to pick up oin that relationship between the planes of the face and the hatching.






    Well, sorry for the late, and crappy, update. Yesterday was out of the house the whole day, and today just kept going downhill. I feel a wave of depression coming on and I'm trying to fight it off--does bad things for my art x.x
    I covered up the self portrait because it is so horrible I"m ashamed to even show it--i really just need to crank out some more and pay attention to things---i just don't know where to really start when drawing a face--any advice?


    ai ya excuse the bitter mood today--think motivation!


    oh and now you get to see how terribly amateur I am with environments and thumbnailing ;p these are just sketches trying to get this one idea i've had for a while down.....

    supsup hala, sorry to hear the depression kicking in, the weather ain't helping either i bet, but hope things get better!

    great update, i'm liking the variety and that you're challenging yourself to think in different ways, I can definitely relate and my mind is all over the place, as for thumbnail'ng you should definitely check out feng zhu (i think i'd sell my kidney to attend his school of design out in singapore, hehe) or syd mead, they are just too f*#(ng awesome and i think they have tutorials over at g_nomon

    I really like the horned girl sketch, there's good rhythm and foreshortening going on in the pose to make it interesting!

    Hala: i just don't know where to really start when drawing a face--any advice?
    i always felt starting with the big shape is the most important, so finding a center line and the width (usually 5 eyes across) and relative length is a good point to start but not hardset rule

    mouth starts at about a little under 1/3 the distance between the nose and the chin

    the placement of the eyes are generally, inner eye starts where the outer nose begins, the outermost portion of the lips starts halfway into the eye, the length of the ears are generally between the eye and the bottom of the nose

    the angle of the head in terms of facing down or up can be figured out by looking at the placement of the ears, if the head is facing down the top of the ear will generally be a bit above the eye and if it's facing up the top of the ear will be below the eye

    don't forget also to practice contour drawing as well, that way it'll help build confidence in your strokes

    keep up the great studies!!!

    Jailhouseeeee: hahah thanks man! Hogarth is the man, I so wish I knew about Hogarth and Bridgman way earlier in my life xD, i;m glad you like the horned girl too! thanks so much for looking!

    Snootchyyyy: Thanks! I'm definitely gonna find some time this week to sit down and do a long self portrait with your advice in mind. And thanks for the links man! I had been on feng zhu's page a couple weeks ago but didn't see the workshops and stuff on the other site. I'm def. gonna indulge in some serious environment tutorials

    Grandmasssaa: yeah man! thanks!! Hahaha I'm glad you like them!!

    strings: Thanks, i'm glad!! I know i have a long way to go still, but that encouragement helps a lot!

    Quikenobi: Thanks man! Hahaha, what you don't agree with the ukranian cheeks? Lol my self portrait doesn't look too much like me, but I def. got puffy cheeks xD and i'm glad you like that piece! thanks !



    Whew, so yesterday, i found out i won a scholarship i applied for, and they gave me more money then the original amount was supposed to be! : D So i'm feeeling elated that there's a couple hundred dollars off my tuition costs ^^ I've also been able to get outside to excersize and go for walks---It has a massive effect on my mood and my art--I think you can tell xD

    So here's a big dump because my bf was sleeping this morning so Id idn't get to talk to him, so i looked around, and suddenly something clicked and I cranked out a bunch of pieces that I'm not too ashamed of. I still need a TON of work, but I feel like i'm on a new wave of motivation.

    And my self portrait is a bit lame and lopsided, but i will work on that and keep trying to get the hatching to match the planes of the face.

    the illustation with the blue guy is brillant! ( But the blue guy has no neck, It's strange)
    The figure drawings are good, keep draw
    In the last portraits may be the eyes are too big
