    looks good zippy one thing i would do is first thing off the bat finding your mid tone darkest darks and lightest lights then sort of sculpting the in-betweens of the painting

    keep it up !

    Thanks again guys. Double thanks for that advice Zorcron, I'm gonna try to do that on a few tonight and just focus on the heavy darks and lightest lights. Will update when I have something worthwhile as a result.

    @Blindsy - Is it weird that after looking through your thread again today I immediately had the desire to go rent Ghostbusters?

    doh.. forgot to post the images from after work... just some comic booky stuff from what I a graphic novel I was reading last week and a really bad copy of a Tim Sale piece.

    Hey

    Thanks for stopping by my forum , glad you like it. I went through you pictures, and I think you should draw more of those posemaniacs 30 sec. poses. It makes your hand more free, and your drawings and lines will become lighter. You can get some space in to your drawings by different thicknes of lines, strong for thinkgs closer to you and light for those far away. Nice work so far hope to see more soon.

    Thanks Fregy.

    I try to do at least 5 or 6 pages of posemaniacs a week, I should probably do more. I actually doodled a bit after reading your comment and realized just how tight I am when drawing (probably as a result from not drawing hardly at all other than on sticky pads at work for several years) I don't really use my arm at all right now unless I absolutely force it, so I really should work on that. Also noticed that lifting my chair up about 6 inches helps me out a bit with not having to slouch over the paper when I draw, which made it a lot more comfortable but a bit awkward. Anyone else have problems with these things?

    Anyhow, won't be able to post this weekend, but here's a couple of quick sketches from last night while looking through comics.

    Didn't get to draw much this weekend (12 hours of driving, family everywhere... good stuff). Just a quick attempt at spiderman from an image I found on the web and an attempt at a pose without reference. Will get back to studies and stuff tomorrow.

    More really bad drawings. I'm trying to work a bit from memory and imagination every once in a while. I think this will help my speed and eventually my confidence when dealing with character art, we'll see... still need to work on my anatomy a lot though, as you'll be able to tell from these ugly doodles. The one improvement I have seen is that I'm getting a lot better at keeping my pencil on the paper when I want to, and a lot looser with my sketching when I'm just trying to get the basic shapes I want down... other than that, I still have a ways to go...

    Mostly doodles and gestures from imagination, and a quick value study in photoshop. I'm going to need to find another job soon, keep spending my money on art books... for shame.

    Cool anatomy studies, and the colored stuff is good too. Welcome back to the art scene, and keep up the good work. You seem to be improving even in these first examples. And art books isn't the worst thing you can spend your money on, in my opinion.

    More junk. I want to try to start inking/coloring some of my quick sketches. I really have no idea what the best way to go about it is though. Tracing with the wacom sucks.. guess I need to figure out how to use the pen tool or check some tutorials... meh.

    Hey, a comic style artist. Looking over your stuff here I like the progression and the attack on some hard poses.

    Keep working at it and keep the references out. A good comic book artist once told me to use dvds to get realistic poses. So get out an action packed dvd and pause a few scenes and draw from that.

    Keep at it

    Thanks, I've mostly been working getting my anatomy, some gestures, and value off and on. I do the pause trick a few days a week watching Buffy the Vampire SLayer when I think about it, I definately think it helps. Any advice on getting comfortable with doing environments or inking in photoshop?
