    jamsey: thanks! im going to do my third master study attempt this weekend.

    smashpansy: thanks! here some more. more tomorrow.

    MT206: thanks for stoping by! im acctually going to the art museum tomorrow! so excited!

    ashess: thanks! im going to invest in some watercolor and acrylic soon... i have heard this advice from others and will do.


    here are some more color studies and this character im working on for a class im taking... the teacher wants it to be grayscale and then add color on a seprate layer so you can easily change it up... but im probably going to re-render most of it once i finish the color layer.

    cant wait till my eye for colors improves.... must go do more studies!

    those from life pieces are really going well.. you are showing the underlying shape very well. I know you were focussing on color, but shape is at least just as important. great progress!

    ashess: thank you! i cant wait until i can see my skills with color improving. currently am frustrated with color; in the scheme of my various skills it is the most lacking.

    latigid: haha if you come to seattle i will get you some high class shit. no meat though. ill make some cheese tortellini and red sauce.

    a la bapsi: HURRAY! you just pumped me up. thanks.


    Eric-Anthony: thanks! soon my finished pieces wil be better... but for now im fine with that

    tobbA: thanks for the motivation. dont worry i cant stop..


    Here are some sketches from my sketchbook. Mostly life drawings and character from imagination, there are some 1 minute gestures in ink, a master study (of joseph shepard) and another random figure from a civardi (sp?) reference. oh and a couple more color studies. the tomato one sucks... kind of rushed. had to get to school today to do work i have been putting off for the sake of more important work (my color studies).

    I need to space out the uploading or the attachment manager stops working. so the next couple posts are all going to be additions to this one.

    great work man! i think your studies are coming along nicely, just lay off all the booze!! the full figure pencil guy from the back is great! but i think his thighs are a bit too long. keep it up man! i usually hate avocados, but this one is sweeet! -ok that was lame, sorry.

    ps. you can send my raviolis to boston!!!!

    I love all those sketches in post 122. All your faces as well with that active scribble style is just so dubiously brilliant and magnetic. Wonderful sketchbook

    Hi, Thanks for your visit in my SB! You seem to study alot witch is great.
    For your pencils I would sugest drawing bigger use the whole paper for one character or study. That way you will work on your lines, sizing and placement. Also spend more time on each drawing. Right now they look a bit rushed, like you want be done and start the next one. Enjoy looking at it and trying to nail dow parts thats hard to get right.
    Keep it up mate! Cheers!

    Keep doing those studies they're looking good.

    Use bigger brushes so that less scratching will show, because that gives everything a rugged texture.

    also refresh your knowledge of body proportions

    Hi there! I think you should avoid using too many small brush strokes when rendering, go from big to small! Otherwise its lookin' good!

    OGDaniel:thanks!

    B-Man: Thanks for the advice!

    Vatsel: thanks for the tips. An i agree aboutt he brush size, thanks. I just love to use a small brush for some reason. its more moving around. feels more epic. I dont know but ill try to go bigger from now on.

    latigid: thanks! haha yeah im not even sure myself. but i do like apricots quite a bit....


    Parsakoira: thanks! definitely good advice. must use larger brushes!


    I havent done much digital work in the past couple days, mostly graphite and charcoal stuff that ill scan soon. But here are some random things i ahve done. And a more finished version of that character (any crits on her specifically would be sweet).

    Good stuff. I can't eat avocado's myself but I guess it's a good thing some people like them

    As for your character. It's not very clear where the lighting comes from. The legs look like they're lit straight from the right, or slightly from behind, while her face and upper body seem lit from straight in front of her. Her shadow indicates light from behing her.

    tobba: thanks and thanks! Yeah that character is all off but i tried to mess with the lighting and pose. here is a "finalized version".

    xelby: thanks for the motivation buddy! and yeah food rules.

    so i havent done much digital stuff this week, mostly graphite and ink studies. school is such a distraction from practice. bagh!

    here is a decent master study (Singer sergeant), a second that i just started and am not sure what to do with (cant decide if i should just restart it, use the transform tool or do a sketch over the whole thing to remeasure everything... his face looks like its been raped by a shovel or something.

    also a finished version of that character and a random other character.... they both look like shit to me. im way overworking everything... i cant wait until i can just loosely sketch a character that looks cool.

    Your latest stuff shows great improvement! Try capturing those gestures as accurately as possible. Gesture is the single most important element of the drawing!

    so yeah I think you're doing ggreeat@ avo!
    hmm crits. I notice things like the guy one the horse is up on the creature's neck. and on a more general note, your anatomy is good, but it seems to lack a certain ease of suggestion. maybe studying body parts per piece would help; focus on the way shape deforms and how light and dark show this.

    Nice rendering, strong gesture drawings, and skill with media.

    Nice stuff! Keep it up. Try working with a large brush at first, and then getting smaller, and have purposeful strokes, so it doesn't end up scribbly.

    Peetaer: thanks for stopping by! yeah i need to work on gestures... ill emphasize this in my studies more. thanks

    ashess: thanks! i definitley need to keep studying anatomy. ill try some light and shadow stuff soon. thanks again

    Yowza:thanks for stopping byyyy

    Blizzard5291: that is a comment i get a lot, but still great advice. thanks for the input, today i did a color study attempting to use big brushes only. it was a little rushed... but next time will be better. and bigger (brush-wise).

    so heres a quick color study trying to use bigger brushes, and a couple super early versions of a chinatown scene im planning on painting. i will probably just start over but these are just getting the colors/composition down. (crits=awesome)

    thankssssss

    Good use of color here

    One thing about the SP in post 142, I think you should pay closer attention to the shape of the eyes. They look a bit too symmetrical to be natural
