    This is great for practice and I think it turned out nicely. I think you captured the stone appearance nicely, though I think the shading around the mouth looks like his lip is being pushed up and out too much. Also, darkening the line under the base where he is sitting on the table would help ground him more I think. Can't wait to see more life drawings

    agreed! pen knife and seahorse = teh awesome.

    check the distance between the eyes (above the nose) when you are doing a portrait. There should be about 1 eye's width in between them. You are making great progress with your rendering, but watch those proportions

    hey dan,

    Bumskee made this tutorial a little while ago ( http://www.carlknox.com.au/Sketchboo...keeprogess.jpg ), but his site got hacked so most of the images are not hosted now. Here is one I salvaged (min if hope you don't mind me hosting your old image):

    hope this helps with your onions!!!

    Hello

    Re your lions: I would say the male lion laying down is the best rendered. You seem to not be sure of the muzzle length and how the anatomy quite works. The knee of a lion is about where the barrel of the body ends, height wise. So you need to have the same amount of space given from his shoulder to his knee, to his knee from his paw. This does get obscured some by the mane hanging down from the chest, but it should be more easily seen on a side view. Encyclopedia Anatomicae has some nice illustrations of the various skeletal and muscle layouts of a few animals, including lions, if you were interested.

    Re your caste drawing: I think you could benefit from pushing your values more. For example - the right half of the statue's face is in shadow, but the midtones you depict are the same there as you have on the left half (which is in light). Also I think the edges of your shadows could be softened, allowing for more gradual shifts in tonal variation. Your proportions and anatomy look pretty good though ^^

    Hey dan. I was watching carl dobskys class on cast drawing last night, and he said it's not unusual to spend up to 60 hours on one piece! O o. Ha. So remembr to take your time now.

    double post fixed too.

    hey dan,

    I'm doing what you are doing too; a new (maybe) folio piece. I've started a still life... the most complex I've tried to date, and I'm expecting it'll take me a couple of days. Just to make mistakes and fix them and learn as I go.

    Those Carl Dobsky vids I was talking about are from the Discovery 5 week art course now happening on CA. If you can afford it, it's WELL worth it. End up being something stupid like $7 a hour... probably even less cause most classes go overtime.

    Those onions were doing in ps using a quick block in technique, then add detail last. Big shapes then detail. As for you folio, paint what interests you. Paint what defines you as an artist. Paint what you want to learn. I paint from life at the moment; anything and everything, because I want to imitate it in my imaginative pieces. Think about why you got started as an artist in the first place and channel that passion into your art.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. You have some really nice rendering with a pencil but you seem to have a little trouble grasping form. Also I see quite a few drawings tend to skew from the top left to the bottom right or top right to bottom left. Maybe throwing in some horizontals and verticals through the face will help you from skewing your drawings.

    You've got a knack for drawing hands! Your still life pieces are coming along nicely, too. Keep it up, you're improving

    You did a great job with those lions, just remember to spend a little extra time with the manes. They need love too! And hey, what ever happened to Rhoades?

    @ Gamerhomie - You're right, On that last SB page I wasn't careful enough to do the initial construction thus giving me the warped figures. I usually do use verticals and horizontals. Thanks for the advice.
    @ Elz - Thank you for the kind words.
    @ GogoJojo - Thank you, the lions are fun to draw. I will spend more time and put more love in to my drawings from now on. What about Rhoades? haha, I'm not sure what you are referring to.
    @ Maxx Biff - Glad you like the mountain lion. I used to live in CO where Mountain Lions roamed wild in the mountains. It was somewhat unnerving to hike around knowing that there were mountain lions up there. But it is beautiful.

    I'm definitely seeing improvement. I would work on the values and some of the general proportions.
