    Keep up the awesome drawings, can't wait to see newer stuff that you put up too.
    Your shading is boss, and you definitely have potential to be awesome.
    Nice first post!

    You've definitely got a nice grasp on values and anatomy. Keep working at it.

    keep it up with the studies!.......focus entirely on structure and gesture, and leave rendering for later.

    Do you start most of your drawings with toning? or do you tone by smudging?

    I love what you have so far, you have an amazing grasp on realism.

    is that portrait with or without reference?

    @andres333 - you got a point man, thanks for the direction. I definitely will. I use shading as a motivational tool to keep me interested. But yea i will def focus on structure and gesture from now on. Thanks!

    @MilanDM - I start toning and outline and more toning and lines. I dont usually smudge that much at all, sometimes occasionally. That portrait is definitely with reference. Appreciate the comments. I also am into doing still lifes too. i think that its important to convey something from real life to 2dimension.

    Update

    Here's a digi I started with my Wacom. This is really the first time i've tried the Wacom seriously. Just a Flintlock gun. I'm not sure if I will continue working on it because I would want to go back to the basics of digi and learn.

    Also some other Bridgeman studies.

    Hi Dan, those are some amazing studies, you have a way with pencils too. Really awesome values especially in the distorted portrait.

    Keep up the great work, I'd love to see some pieces from imagination too.

    Sweet Bridgman studies, and that gun is pretty awesome too.
    Yeah you definitely should use the Wacom more and do basic studies, which you should post up here.
    Can't wait to see what you do, and I'll give you those brushes I use later on.

    I'm kind of lost when it comes to digital painting. Working on it though.

    Hi, Dan!

    Woooow, very nice pencil work there! You have a good eye for those proportions and lighting/shadow.

    As for digital painting, yeah that can be a tough thing to do, but great to progress with! Definitely try out some of Idiot Apathy's Peer Project threads (Mentoring section, I believe) to work with lighting and find some useful links.

    I notice the lemon has a tinge more of green than I've seen on lemons. I think it has to do with the shades of what appears to be chartreuse or...lime...peel. I dunno all the colour names yet. But I think those colours could move more towards orange as well, to bring out some warmth in the fruit.

    Also, while digitally painting, if you're using mainly smaller brushes, try using larger ones to "block in" colours, then work smaller as your details get more intricate! It looks like you're using smaller brushes, that's why I mention.

    I think that's all. Great stuff so far! I'm interested in what ideas you come up with as you progress.

    I think the lemon looks good, but I agree it should have more orange in it.
    And I'm glad I saw the comment about using bigger brushes for blocking in.
    That's great advice that we should both use.

    I second this. It's a great little factoid that once I figured it out brought my colour artwork to the next level.

    more critique when I'm not sick.

    P.S. I love lemons, they are my fave fruit.

    The studies are looking better by the day, keep it up, and I'd recommend drawing at least a few ideas from imagination every day too. Which is something I'm starting to do too.
    I think it would help in understanding the studies that you do even more if they're applied to stuff from imagination.
    Digital painting is coming along nicely too.

    Lemon

    This is the WIP digital painting of lemon. I'm satisfied with it. It was good practice. I enjoyed painting it.

    Keep doing people from life, because you're already off to a great start. The lemon looks badass, good job on the lighting and colors. I see you put the orange in there, good man. When you didnt have warm orange in there in the last one it really chapped my hide.
    I think you should also step outside your comfort zone and try doing more stuff from imagination using principles that you've learned from studies (like anatomy and structure and lighting)
    Try doing some exercises from http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=81332

    Hey. That Wacom's a b|tch to begin with, eh? Your work is going to progress ten-fold as your confidence builds. Is mad, the change to pen. It's hardest when you first pick it up (obviously) but then, it's the first tool of choice thesedays for certain jobs. Sculpting in ZBrush for example, Wac-me-up!

    Post more, please?

    And yet... MORE SKETCHBOOK PAGES!

    My hand is hard to draw because its so large, I end up wanting to draw it full size. My brain has to work hard to scale it down as well as draw it proportionately. I like a challenge though so I had to draw my hand several times. I will do it a lot more to come im sure.

    Hogarth head studies, and some life sketching.
