    New Digi still life. Sketch up, and blocking in colors. It's hard to refrain from rendering at the start...Trying to be conscientious of blocking in the color first.

    No reference/imagination drawing. It was a lot of fun. I kept catching myself and thinking back on the value studies, and then applying what I could remember.

    I wasn't really feeling anything tonight...I just couldn't see things correctly, and I couldn't move my pencil in the right ways. Oh well, just an off night I suppose...back at it hard tomorrow night.

    I returned to that digital still life as well. I cleaned up some edges, and worked the background a little bit to add some depth. I also noticed something in the shadows that I've never noticed before, a little bit of a reflection or cooling effect towards the outer part of the shadow under the apple and the orange. I tried to paint that in, though I don't know how successful I was. But it still felt good to see this and recognize what it was. I feel like through all this studying I am doing, I am really starting to see things more clearly when I look at them...I feel like I am looking with a deeper and more in tune purpose than before, and I am really enjoying it

    Anyways, back at it tomorrow.

    Decided to have a go at some thumbnail enviros. These were SO much fun! Number 3 and 4 are my favorite, and number 2 makes me wish I were never born, lol...

    Anyways, any critiques or help to make these faster/more successfully? I know that perspective is king for these, so I will always keep that in mind when sitting down to work on enviros like this.

    syle

    right on man...loving those landscapes. keep doing em. also...keep on those loomis studies...those are going to boost your figurative drawings ten fold. try to draw through the form...meaning think of where the rib cage is in 3d space and draw its contours accordingly...check this out...

    http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/3383/107nt5.jpg

    look at how he draws the s-curve of the spine and wraps the ribcage around it almost...on the figure with its back toward us. it looks like the ribcage is hanging off of the spine there...and then the hip bones but right up underneath it...

    draw the s curve and figure out where the bottom if the ribcage line is, then figure out where the hips are...and then draw in the clavicle, and right above that is the jaw bone...and then youre halfway there! with only five lines!

    keep it up broski.

    good work so far, but i think maybe you're taking on too much at once? you're doing gesture, anatomy, construction, shading, perspective, values all mixed together.

    my advice would be focus on one of the basics, either perspective or figure construction, before you do anything else. if you look at loomis he's got lots of tips on how to build things in perspective using vanishing points and primitive shapes (cubes, cylinders, spheres).

    once you're really comfortable with those foundations in a couple of months you'll have a much better chance of tackling the more advanced stuff
