    Thanks, smallergod. Yeah - I'd agree on the life drawing front; hence why I've got involved to sort it out myself. I've been lucky to find a couple of very professional models and to have a supportive boss to supply an area to run the course. Attendance has been high so far, so we can keep the cost of the sessions reasonable - it's working out well.

    Nice stuff, man. I like the drapery on all ur pieces. Your paintings look good. I kinda miss your character designs though.

    Hey Flanagan - nice post, thanks! I really need to get some latest (traditional) sketchbook scribblings scanned. I'll put them against tomorrow's life drawings and take a step-back - I want to thrash out some strong ideas to be made 'real' by the power of 3ds max / zbrush.

    The ten min poses are nice given the amount of time. The 45 min pose is good his left arm doesn't seem to be proportional to his body. Maybe its just me. The other sketches are sick. Good ol' traditional 8)

    life drawings 16th Nov 2011

    Thanks for the encouragement, -D_Art-. I'm really putting time into making more gestural marks during life drawing. Also, this week trying to get the pose down in as few marks as possible.

    Update:

    The last piece, made from ink (I believe), is absolutely stunning. You really captured the pose well.

    Thanks, MeteorCat. Yes, it was frantically sketched with a technical drawing pen (o.5).

    These life drawings are beautiful. They have linework full of energy and a lot of value range which you seen to be translating to your digital work too. Keep at it Grayslayer, looking forward to more energetic doodles :p

    I love those last two pieces. What medium is that? Is it coloured charcoal (sepia maybe) ?

    Thanks for the encouraging words. I'm keeping the course running into the new year (and hopefully beyond) so my plan is to keep trying out new stuff and posting updates here. I'm focusing on gestural lines at the moment, and I'm hoping Father Christmas (well, my boss) will bring us some easels soon. I'm finding A3 quite restrictive...

    The last two here were done with Conte crayon on decent Ingres paper. Quite a challenge, as the studio was near dark with just the spotlights on the model.

    You're doing a terrific job Grayslayer, keep it up. I'd love to see the creatures you made in post 186 completed. What you've done with them so far is brilliant.


    Wish I had more knowledge to give you critique to help you improve, but really, you look like you're on the right track.

    Thanks arc41! Those creatures are my evening doodles, usually before I crash for the night. I may extend them further by sculpting them in ZBrush, so much to do... so little time.... bah!

    Life Drawings

    Just a couple to show this week. 20 minutes each, but I still felt very rushed. Bah! I blame this man-flu I am suffering from.

    The head area feels really strange to me, I'm not sure if that's you blocking in that area before chiseling it down to a face or something, if so then forget I said anything and keep going.

    I'm really enjoying you gestural life studies, especially the weight you've accurately put into your more weighted / hefty subjects. Keep uploading.

    Hi BlightedArt, thanks for commenting. I should've explained, this is still early days for this sculpt so I'm still pushing ideas around. I think he'll end up feathery and furry with a head based on something feline with 4 eyes that I sketched a while back.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! ^__^
    You really have some nice progress in your works since the 1st page I like how varied are you - you use digital and traditional materials and draw different characters and creatures. Sculpting is also great!

    The only problem is as I think color, there's too much grey there and isn't that blimy that your username is "thegrayslayer"
    I'd recommend you the way which helped me. Try to make some copies of old masters, like Bouguereau. Download the PaintersWheel , pick colors from the reference pick and look at the wheel, try to analyze where the color is on the spectrum, how much saturation and brightness is in it. Firstly try to make masters copies picking colors from the reference pic, and then after 4-5 works try to do the same without using a colorpicker. Even 1 copy without colorpicker will blow your brain but it'll really help you a lot with your further color work.

    Good luck to you and keep up growing! ^__^

    Hi b-dawg - thanks for stopping by and for the advice (with links!). I take your point, and I hadn't really thought about it too much. Maybe because I view the digital medium as a rough way of putting ideas down to this sketchbook. I turn out most of this stuff during the lunchbreak of my day-job so it's just the medium I have to hand at the time.

    It all feeds into one another though, and I'm sure your tactic will assist in my painting - which is what I really enjoy.
