    Niice I think that last dude is in a weird position, mainly his legs, I don't know how to explain exactly but I think you know what I mean. The photo study and pencils are awesome!

    teapo!
    gestures are sweet man, they look great
    i know you love pencil rendering and shit, but (though this is suuuuper personal) i think it would save a ton of of time just using like a stick of charcoal, and just getting all messy and shit. i mean man, you could render a patch in a stroke of charcoal, rather than a billion strokes with pencil, if you know what i mean.

    just think you should try more medias!

    also, you said you prefered the lines over values, i think this is just because you are going too dark, too fast. with your values, i'd be a lot lighter, you never really see that black anywhere in life, and its not 'aesthetically' pleasing. go for a dark gray, and if you want black, only put it in areas you *really* want to push. like, REALLY want to push, black is powerful, don't over do it.

    keep it up man!

    @Guik: hmm i sort of see what you mean. but i need explanation hahaha xD. thx though Guik!

    @bobmeatbag: gah... no way haha. more studying is to be had ty bob!

    @ryan mcshane: hey ryan! good to hear from you again! no, i totally agree that a stick of charcoal would be faster but yes, it is definitely personal preference. i dunno, i just find enjoyment in that OCD rendering with the mechanical pencil lolol. i'll give charcoal a try in the future though. definitely not out of the question also, i see what you mean with the line vs values in the last digital. perhaps there is just too much contrast? hopefully it's not my monitor's calibration but there are really harsh darks as you said. so i will keep it in mind

    well, i hope everyone had a great new year's eve/day. for new year's eve, i spent the day playing video games haha. just a one day break from the studying i've been doing over winter break. now it is back to work! this year, i hope to be more productive and work with the design side of things. also, i started a second sketchbook dedicated to daily self portraits. this is just to get me doing more digital work. i always enjoy pencil and paper but i really want to get good with my tablet okay, just a moleskine sketch from last night.

    it's really awsome what u doin here...

    i have a small note , which is ... ; sometimes when u r doing studies , u don't draw what u see , but u draw what u think , ( using ur knowledge ) ...

    so try next time to seperate between things u draw from refrence , and imaginary things u apply to the artwork .


    Cheers

    I agree about using different media. I took one of the TAD seminars on sketchbooks. There was one guy who mentioned when he got to use to one form of media he would change it up, just to challenge how he approach the subject. I am paraphrasing, but the point is using different media does give you a different feel and approach. I think the uncomfortable factor should be used as a tool to push boundaries and make for new skill sets.

    @Brahimpag: thx man, you're right

    @sombertwin: thanks somber, and yes that is a good suggestion to switch up mediums. right now though, i'm just trying to do these studies without having to experiment with something new. i need more understanding of what i'm doing but i will try some pens or some sort in the near future for gestural/figures.

    -gestures in photoshop

    -then some embarrassing loomis practice in photoshop. (i don't know what it is, but whenever i do technical studies, it always comes out looking like crap. if you compare this to some loomis early in the sketchbook, there's no change i suppose repetition is key to these type of studies D: well, i did learn more about the planes of the head.)

    -ref'd heads in the moleskine (i must say the loomis stuff helped in approaching these face studies. honest. also, dark-complected skin is difficult to render )

    well, as of late, i've been keeping up with the daily SP, that's only 3 so far but hopefully i can keep with it til the end of the year. today's SP was shit. still trying to get 'comfortable' with the tablet. for me, it seems that i need to be physically touching my drawing-- otherwise i feel disconnected. which is why digital is just difficult for me ):

    i've also been feeling hopeless at the moment. i've been questioning myself, when will i reach a decent level of quality in my art? how do i be more consistent? where's my focus? my mind is all over the place. my studies, i don't think i'm gaining much benefit from them as of late. i'm finding it hard to keep concentrated these days.

    and again, the issue with digital work. i love it, but it's so foreign to me still and i've had my tablet for 2 years now!! i must say, it is definitely a medium out of my comfort zone. i want to get good with it, but i'm not really sure that my approaches with it are helping? i guess the only thing to do is to just keep trucking along...

    whats up teapo i know what your saying about feeling disconnected from your work when using the tablet i think the only thing for it is to use it a lot and practice being loose and do a lot of different types of studies with it im still trying to learn to use mine properly i learn new stuff about it everytime i use it and i just figured out the hotkeys on it and i have had it for a while now. I like the gestures i have never had the discipline to do that many gestures. 1504 with the spanish drawing looks awesome great work on that one keep at it man

    Your studies show great form and mass aswell as construction.
    Try to get that same feel into your imaginative stuff as accurately as possible, like on the two headed guy.
    Looking mighty fine here, keep it up.

    oooooh wow

    your most recent studies are really nice. you can see the forms, feel the mass because of your values. I also like the stroke activity. what references are you using?

    and thanks for stopping by my sb.

    @Trixtar: thanks trixtar. it's all about practice and studying i suppose! keep doing your thing and you will get better too

    @Rotor: thanks for the kind words rotor. and you're right, i'm trying to apply the studies as close as i can.

    @sombertwin: thanks somber! not sure which references you're asking for in particular but if it's for the moleskine figure studies, they're found here at Surus's post. for the spanish academic studies, i found them off a blog some time ago. i have the images saved so if you want them, shoot me a PM with your email!

    -going to stick with grayscale studies for a while. really have to understand values-- should be doing still life as well

    Maaan your graphite work is amazing! I love your figures. Your digital work is definitely making improvements too! I don't know if it's the same with you, but with my own personal experience with traditional vs digital, I still feel a disconnect while I'm doing digital work. I can't quite explain why but maybe if there's a way of solving that you can improve your digital a bit more. Definitely keep it up!

    @lemming-clone-: thanks lemming and yes, i know what you're feeling. i have that feeling of disconnect with digitals as well but the more i do it the less i have that feeling. so just keep messing around with your tablet i suppose
