    hnm, i looked around your studys and i don't know, sometimes parts of theirs bodys seems floppy, i mean, you don't need to detail it in to a level where someones legs to a perfect like line but sometimes those shapes seems awkward

    anyway keep it up!

    Thanks Diarum! The black demonic guy is me (I think?) - had to do a self portrait with skull elements incorporated. Thanks again for the comment!

    Edit: D'oh! You mean the actual black demon guy! I forgot I put that in here...dur...

    HolyMane - thanks for stopping by. Yeah, the body can look quite awkward sometimes when drawing from life - foreshortening, angle of view, relaxed pose, etc. It is much different than drawing stylized, idealized figures - just a different goal based more on getting better at observing form, light and shadow.

    Stumbled upon this and couldnt for my life figure out where I had seen it before. Until 5 min ago

    Duran was Sargents teacher, correct?

    lol - cool krel! Thanks! Yeah - that is where I got it and thought it would be kind of fun to do for my Master Copy assignment. I did as good as I could but still didn't get some things - that folded over hand and long fingers was tough.

    Yes - Sargent studied under Carolus-Duran - I think from about the age of 17 if I remember correctly? (don't quote me though)

    Hey Jeff, you got to update a little more regular.

    I am really glad for the proffessional critique you gave me in my sketchbook, I feel like I am finding a path now that I should follow, before that I have always felt I've been a bit lost.

    Oh I know Lord! Always so much to do - I'll probably start a thread in Fine Art actually...maybe...IDK.

    Glad it helped - I have a bit of a follow-up to post too so I'll go do that. It takes awhile to find direction - and then that often changes and evolves too - just part of the journey as you are discovering.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Joey: charcoal sketch of friend in class (who happens to look like Hellboy)
    Rachel and Amber plus environ: charcoal 30 min
    Rachel portrait: charcoal...I forget - 45 min?
    Rachel paint 1: oils 45 min

    Hey Jeff

    Your drawings are looking really nice.
    Sometimes the quality changes but overall it looks good.
    I just started oil painting a few days ago!
    Thats why i love your 2 oils.
    Are you going to put more layers on them?
    At the moment i looks like you put the "dead layer" on it.

    Greetings, Silwynar

    No - those are just quick studies in class...no real intent but to practice.

    Other newish stuff...

    These are some watercolor gesture/colored pencil sketches of Amalia - all 10-15 minutes. The A and B versions of the two poses are from one side - then moved to the other side of the model. I like this technique a lot - a quick gesture wash/stroke in 30 secs. then pulling out form a bit with colored pencil.

    Hey,

    I just came by to see the watercolor gestures and decided to look through. Good stuff going on in here, the watercolor gestures are really beautiful. I also love the ink gestures on the first page. Thanks for posting!

    Glad you finally decided to post some

    Oh those are some really beautiful wash studies! I like the warm red/orange and the contrasting blue pencil marks. Number 4 and 5 are my favs of the washes, nr 4's torso and legs are looking very realistic. Graphite and oils are also looking good, hehe you're right about that he looks a bit like hellboy.

    The only thing I can remark on is that you sometimes seem to make the arms too long, like in nr 4 of the washes. And in nr 4 of the graphites her mouth is placed too far back in relationship with the eyes and forehead, it almost gives the impression that they're drawn in 2 different angles of the head at different times.

    Oh and I want to als o thank you for your follow up to your post in my sketchbook, so I am studying the fundamentals a lot now. Thank you!

    Thanks Lord M - you're more than welcome - a lot of hard work going on there I see. Yeah, the ten minute wash studies are more about gesture than anything - I like working loose like that, they were a lot of fun. I know what you mean about the charcoal portrait - she's Asian so has pretty flat features - that turned out to be a pretty good likeness - maybe got her nose a bit big actually - oh well...

    Hey man, thanks for being a visitor to my SB.

    Pretty good work here, I have to say though, you seem to have a split artistic personality.
    On the one hand your pencil/pen line is extremely deft and has a good sense of aesthetics/design.

    However, despite having a very nice technique and rendering, your more fine-art stuff and your
    figures (especially from life) seem a bit wonky or weak in proportion and structure. As a particular
    example, on that 'memento-mori' style painted nude (second to last post) the woman's breasts seem
    mis-matched, like they're not on the same horizontal line.

    Maybe you just need to spend more time/attention at the proportion and construction stage of your
    life drawings. I'd say that based on your concept drawings of ground vehicles and spaceships that you
    have a pretty good grasp of basic 3D forms, just try applying that to abstracting the human form and
    I think it'll bear a lot of good fruit.

    I really like the color and light on those marker nudes, BTW.

    keep it up!

    Thanks for the comment and for stopping by Sprogis!

    Thanks dsacc!

    Thanks Ludic!

    Thanks purplegoat - I really like doing those watercolors - that was the first time but I'd like to do a lot more.

    Thanks for visiting BludHund and for the comments. Oh yeah, I completely failed with those breasts (the one with the skeleton I assume you mean). I realized it too late - it was only about a 45 minute pose for Rachel anyway - you definitely don't win them all! I tend to exaggerate proportions a bit with limbs and constantly struggle with making heads too small - I don't worry about it too much - as you say it is just a matter of paying more attention to construction.

    Thanks again for stopping by!

    those gestures show so much improvement!! you're showing confident lines and form, whereas the pencil drawing before were sketchy and seemed a little less confident! not much to critique atm, just keep it up, maybe toss in a few value studies

    edit: i too also make heads either too small or too large, then my proportions get screwed
    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    I like the umber/sierra color studies. I'm jumping in figure drawing class for fun now at Ohlone College.

    My only suggestion on the watercolor studies with the pink/orange shading. Is careful on following the forms a bit. Some of the shading flattens a forms a bit or pokes outside the line work.
    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Hi Jeff, I never got to really thank you for all your advice you gave to me.
    I find it hard to critique someone that feels like my mentor but I will try anyway.
    I have to agree with Lord M, looks like there is something wrong with some of your head drawings and a lot of them look too small; and the last painting of the orange girl's left arm looks too big. Otherwise your stuff looks pretty good to me.

    Nice stuff Jeff, I particularly like the portraits at the start (even though some of the eyes are a bit dodgy) also the loomis stuff, and the sweeping lines in the diamond warrior one, Ye gods I'm a kid in a sweet shop again.

    Now that I have finished fawning I do however have a question, the loomis .pdfs that everyone has on file, you know the ones we all throw at people when they post that are very good and useful do you know of any more? or know of some by other authors that could be useful or inspiring to us lesser mortals?

    Thanks for posting and thanks for the pointers matey.

    P.S. I started a sketchbook like you said! Have a look and tell me what you think, but ignore the three little pigs image at the end I was experimenting with some 3d stuff and it went horribly wrong other than the piggy and his house that is I'm ok with them
