    Bridgman Studies are looking good. I think you need a reminder to be more confident with your lines. Get in the habit of knowing what stroke you're going to make, then making it. Stop and take a breath first if you have to. You don't have to make the stroke quickly, or even in one pass (Though you should aim for one pass if you can). Just avoid the noodling lines you get sometimes at the moment.
    It's like you're being too intense with it. Loosen up and take time to get control. Be decisive. Get this down with pencils and I think you'll save yourself a lot of trouble when it comes to brush stroke eceonomy. Bridgman studies could be a good place to practice this, since he was a complete badass when it came to this stuff.

    craz, i'm using inks for these bridgman studies for that quite reason, to force myself to make first time accurate lines, but i guess your right about loosening things up.

    feeling like shit for the past couple of day, i'm slacking too much, some bridgman for now.

    Looking good man, the studies are nice and the hatching on the last ones is nice and delicate. I like your idea of using ink to force ourself to do decent lines. Also the permanence of ink makes it daunting and I think its unhealthy to feel daunted by any one type of medium. Keep it up!

    thomas, yeah ink's good, i've actually grown into liking it now,

    urgh, I hate school, destroys so much valuble time, yet i always find myself slacking when i do have time. Anyways, a cube i reffed from Scott Robertson's gnomon dvd (learning a ton about value from that stuff), bridgeman and an lousy self drawing, i suck drawing from life. Gotto do that more often...

    Dude your SB is coming along nicely - I would crit one thing thought that applies to basically everyone: Perhaps work on your line width and weight? Upping the contrast between your pencil strokes really can add another level of depth to your sketches

    Hey Exon-Ion. Thanks for the comments on my sketchbook. I'm really impressed with the amount of work your doing. Your improvement is impressive.

    You complimented me on my gestures. If I could make a suggestion on yours, possibly try doing your gestures rapidly while taking your pencil off the paper as few times as possible.
    I had a really great life drawing teacher who hammered into us that he wanted us to touch the tips of the toes and the tips of the fingers in the first ten seconds of the gesture while not taking our charcoal off the page. The gesture length was usually 30 seconds to one minute.

    Also bear down harder when you're hitting a strong gestural line (outside of the thigh etc).

    Anyway, keep working at it. Your progress is impressive.

    thomas, your right, i must look further into line width and weight....

    pgd, this act of getting down the tips of fingers and toes interests me first, interests me, glad your seeing some sort of progress, cause i'm not.

    Hey - thanks for the comment

    You are doing fine with the head&value studies.

    Maybe you should focus on "make better transitions" on your value studies - they would look much better then

    Keep it up!

    You've got some great stuff going on here! I adore your comic pages! Keep the studies going, you're learning a lot. With the digital paints, try using broader strokes with a hard brush maybe?

    Keep going

    sky, thanks, i'm mostly using hard brushes,i'll use much more broader strokes now, i have realised that i tend to use smaller sized brushes all round.

    thanks for coming by my sketchbook again man,
    anatomy studies are looking really great and you're developing a great structural style.
    the most recent hogarth heads are looking ace, the only thing i'd say is you could have pushed the contrast more in the bottom right one.
    keep it up!

    wow dude those bridgeman studies are amazing, they're so accurate. i might as well copy from your studies instead of the book. yo if you apply the same kind of copying that you're doing in those studies to real life your life drawing is going to be out of this world. the same shapes that you're seeing in bridgman, that you're able to copy... well those shapes exist in real life too. you just need to find em and bang put em down on paper just like that. oh and thanks for stopping by my sb

    Hallo, thanks for the comment in my sketchbook. I don't have much to say to you other then keep doing those studies, you are doing really good. You have really encouraged me to do alot more studies.

    Perhaps you should do some more portraits aswell? Your self portrait is looking pretty good, doing some portraits of other people aswell would be awesome.

    Using ink also sounds like a neat idea, I'll have to try that myself.
