    Erd: Thanks for stopping by! I've been avoiding any traditional media because I don't have a scanner, but I guess that's dumb

    DarkSoul: I'm here to please!

    Been playing way too much Minecraft. Transferring smallish pixel art into a large monument inside a persistent 3D online world is fun and rewarding. It's also great to contribute to a server's overall image by doing great work there. Too bad most of my peers are young teens, haha!

    Here's an update just to keep the book alive! Hands are evil. Happy Holidays from Panama City Beach!

    EDIT: I just noticed how much I'm avoiding feet. Bah, when I get back home (Doh! Forgot my tablet!) I'll post a lot of lower leg and foot studies, just cause.

    The work isn't bad, you just need more of it.

    Try to think of building a head less as an exercise in putting features on a sphere... this isn't like Mr. Potatohead

    Think of it more as finding the planes where things sit. It's hard to see the head as a series of shapes and planes; Bridgman's pretty good at breaking the head down.

    Check out the Bridgman on that as well as Asaro's planal head (if you can find a cast of it to practice with).
    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    Fried my brain copying colors for about an hour and a half while on a caffeine rush. This would be a fun routine. Maybe throw in some other material to work on and call it a session

    This one is a revisit of the first sketch in #2. I've got a reference image of a statue and I'm bending it to the quirky expression. It's interesting and fun, if not terribly accurate. She's bug-eyed and that presents a challenge. I'll finish it soon!

    Good stuff, man, keep posting! I'd love to see you do more studies, you'd benefit a lot. Like everyone said, gotta focus that creative laser of yours. Seems all over the place at the moment.

    Keep going, you have tons of potential!

    I don't think it's so bad that you're all over the place; I like the crazed explosion from your imagination!

    Anatomy studies can always help, though! Even if you're mostly interested in really highly stylized figures, a good grasp of anatomy will help you play around with proportions even more.

    Thanks guys! Gonna bust out anatomy studies ASAP! Maybe I'll give some special focus to hands, since they've been killing me lately.

    Finished the repaint. Not exactly the colors of the reference, but a great exercise. I think I should remove the lines and have it as plain values, but I also want to move on. In another study then!

    I live!

    Hand studies in my free time. Threw on some Twisted Metal to put a general time limit on each one. If I didn't finish, I went on to the next track and wrapped up as fast as possible. More tomorrow.

    Ha, that worked out.

    Busy busy. Art these days is more of a hobby, sadly.
