    qlotzan: Thank you.

    ryanoir: Thanks, but yeah that goes in with efficiency.

    Marian Rowling: Glad you can see improvement! I am going to try and do a lot more art next year.


    Alright, just starting today to get into my studies this break (before I was sleeping and reading Harry Potter, but now I finished the series and am ready).

    A few pencil studies of armour and stuffs. I'm trying to get better lines, but my drawings are turning out REALLY BAD. And I am trying to do this brushed graphite technique Ixius is doing (I am like super inspired by him lately--go check him out). I also tried out gouache for the first time today. I'll try to take photos of it tomorrow since it is too big for my scanner.

    The brushed graphite work looks great, love the armor studies as well. You're lines are excellent, very loose but accurate. Keep up the good work.

    Ixius: The man himself! Thanks for checking out my stuff, I really appreciate it! Definitely going to do more of the brushed graphite, and definitely going to keep an eye on you.

    ryanoir: Thanks! It looks much better in real life too.

    jNeumann: Thank you. I am actually not happy with my lines really, so I will keep working on them.

    Okay, getting a little reference bound here, but I am having a ton of fun studying armour and line. I keep trying to get the lines in one go and with no real underlying drawing, so it is really tough, especially considering I think in terms of shapes and tones more than line. These are all fairly quick, the digital one took about 1.75 hours for the two give or take a bit. And the second armour with the fucked up perspective is from my mind (obviously).

    OmertA: Thanks Jamie! I'm surprised people are liking my lines--I was never very good at them and it still feels awkward. Oh, and congrats on LTS!

    skMOP: Thanks! This in depth? Pfff...this is ONLY THE BEGINNING.

    Heading off to Montreal today, so won't get any art done for a day or two. Instead here are the gouache paintings I did earlier this week. First time ever trying the medium, both from photo. They are actually better looking in real life. The photo wrecked some of the blending and picked up textures that aren't really visible.

    Nice work! Your tones are becoming more believable.

    (most recent post)Separate that figure from the background! He's got the infamous halo outline that's marrying him right to that background tone. Use an opposite angled brushstroke to pop him out, along with a confident highlight line.

    Go for it! and merry christmas

    Merry Christmas man.
    Gouache paintings are looking good, need to give that a try sometime. You may have answered this already, but where do your armor references come from? I'd love to draw from some.

    kiwigarbage: Thanks for the crit. Totally right. I think I am getting too used to digital in which brush direction like that isn't as obvious.

    jNeumann: Thanks. I left it in your sketchbook, but for everyone else: http://www.bestarmour.com/

    Not too happy with this stuff. As you can see I'm trying to be like Ixius, only I suck. I need to study hands, feet and portraiture. The last one is a study after Alex Kanevsky. Really hard to copy something so different and full of texture, but I think I learned a bit about warm and cool relationships and saturation.
