    Whoooo studies! Those are gorgeous figures, you should seriously consider doing some with a harder brush so you really have to try to nail the subtle hues and shades of the figure and blend less. Or better yet-- do that from life! With a still life! Then go back to your figure and see if it helps! Either way...killer update I like the little sketch a the bottom. Sweeet stuff. More more!

    dwardo: Thanks man, yes, some of my personal pieces tend to be that way--better out than in tho right? good for mental health

    snootchy: hahaha that's cuz i'm half robot. *cough* XD I think that batch was a good batch, I don't think i'm always that successful, hahaha thanks! And franzetta is a god.

    grandmassa: hey man thanks!!! hahah yesh, I will pawn that interview

    sketcheth: thanks! I will definitely try that with the brush! Omg i need to make a space in this cramped corner for some still lifes dammit!

    Trying to find a method of drawing the figure that works for me. I'm finding now that when I go to draw somethign from imagination, I'm totally lost I feel so dependent on refs and studies now.

    Any advice on drawing heads titled downwards, and heads in 3/4 view? I'm looked at hogarth and bridgman, and for some reason i'm just not getting it right x_x.

    and I did two quick studies of my hands, trying to look at them in a constructive way.

    And grandmassa's portrait since he painted mine! I'm sorry it sucks dude i really need to practice!!!!, gimme a pic with better lighting too si can see ur other eye! XD Hope u like it anyway!

    uhm big wow! mang y you holding back on us, can't believe the amount of improvement just in this last set of sketches. you have great discipline and dedication towards your studies and be pro in no time!! The paint is great too, i'd say practice different skin tones and also keep doing tonal studies of portraits cuz the values seem a little bit similar making the forms look a tad flat but great job on this last batch, keep at it!!

    like snootchy mentioned, you are improving fast. don't stop that momentum. that's the key right there. to paraphrase what someone i work with at the studio told me the other week "if you go in a direction of your choosing then heavens will follow you". seize the day big man.

    PS: nice hand studies. i need to do those way more.

    Hi! Exciting sketchbook here...I can tell you're on a roll and there's no stopping you. Don't feel bad about being dependent on refs and studies at this stage--everyone starts out the same way. As for your head question, you could start with a simple sphere and practice drawing a line around its circumference at different angles. You could also try a few still lifes with an egg under different lighting conditions...

    omg, that's him ... nice!
    oooo ... more hands, guilty, ok, I get it. you can do them.

    and you could always try simplified shapes fer heads.
    a ball and half cyclinder, or even just a box. get used to finding the middle for each face of the box. (using an X, corner-to-corner)
    Settle/decide on the way the head is facing and build from there. (Easier said that done, on my end at least)

    Hot damn. so my computer is having probs again, as well as my tablet. Neither are working right : ( Got my job interview in a couple hours.

    Yesterday went to the farm my mom works on and got some onions freshly harvested. but I think i was too ambitious with the one I decided to paint.

    I need to spend more time in the block in stage and pay better attention to what is actually there, and simplify more. Practice!

    Well if I can get my tablet and pc to work, get working on another still life and update again later.

    So here is my unfinished sloppy onion (mmm but it smells so good)


    try try again, right?

    ooh awesome update, I'm really liking the process shots, My favorite part was the first initial block in of the colors, yea it is rough but still my eyes can make out what it is at a glance. I think there was a bit too much blender in the final, and you lost some of those beautiful hard edges/forms that you created in the initial block in.

    Don't stop me likey!! =P

    It may be unfinished, but that's a beautiful start. You did a wonderful job observing colors...the only things that take away from the image slightly are the white highlights. Try to use white as sparingly as possible and push yourself to see the colors in the lit areas.

    Wow hala, i browsed through your sketchbook and i see significant improvement with the figure. I really like the last figure paintings from ref. They're so nice and loose. Great progress on the fruit as well.
