    I am not doing so well defining my darks.
    I should stop rushing color.

    It is interesting how the media affects mark making.
    I need to consider my edges.
    These took far too long. I think 2.5-3 hrs total.

    These are both from photo reference.

    Hi. You've got a nice quality in that last one, good line there. Yes, you are probably rushing your colors, probably rushing your drawing too. Give yourself some time on these. The deer thing with the sharks ass is very funny btw. Good Luck.

    Bill and RETEP, thanks for your feedback. I'm trying to set aside blocks of time to draw.

    Starting is hard. I definitely have regressed in my ability to mix paint and handle color. I should create whole pieces. But that scares me.
    I have started, though, and that is better than nothing.

    A mix of loomis, anatomy for the artist, and stephen peck.

    -burberry dude: i feel like the coloring/"shading"? is more defined on the pants than on the jacket. the pants feel like theyre moving.
    -your last person painting: i am certainly no expert in the paint area, but it seems though youre using lots of colors to shadow/color the face, you seem to be using a lot of yellow based pigments. it seems a bit jarring compared to the neck.
    -i think you have captured very well the lower torso; i think your butts are excellent. i usually dont realise that there are two muscle clumps in the butt.
    -your little robot-y things are quite fanciful.
    -your feet are also pretty swell. more fleshy than i can draw them.

    i must learn from your fleshblobs. keep up the solid work, mdear.
