    those studies at the start are great, you should keep em up! feels kinda like you jumped from there straight into the deep end with your full characters and environment paintings, and the foundations feel a bit wobbly.

    you've also got pretty much the same density of detail all over, which makes it hard to read your drawings. "should i look at the face or the foot?" kinda stuff it is, because everything seems equally important when it shouldn't be

    your sculpting is awesome, makes me wanna paint minis again!

Cheers.

    [ste] Thanks man, really trying to get all this stuff to stick in my dome.
    Welllll, saturday morning, woke up as the dagger stream was ending, it starts a tad early here on the west coast. BUUUUUUTTTTTTTTT, started this while listening to the stream on demand. Should probably take it a little further but I think I'd like to move on to another. Thanks for looking and cheers! Off to draw some more.

    Great studies, and so many, you are very motivating! Your sculpts are amazing, great detail and nice use of colors. The fruit and spoon is a little confusing because of the reflection on the fruit, perhaps it wouldn't be so shiny, but I can't wait to see more, great sb!!

    Linguini-Thanks! I'm really trying to wrap my head around all this anatomy business and agreed on the apple reflection, I put a little more work into it and tried to correct the problem. Cheers.

    Said I would try and update this book daily as often as possible, todays study. Still lots and lots to do, like actually render the letters and not just draw them in all shitlike. I'd post the sb stuff I did but no scanner at the apartment, thanks for looking and man, thunderhead ipa is terrible.

    you're making pretty good lighting/color observations, but I think you should focus a bit more on the construction/ drawing issues before rendering too much.

    in the last one, the spoon head and tail don't relate well to the angle of the handle. I know the spoon ellipses are super hard to nail, but if you think about visually what you're seeing in 2d as well as thinking through the construction it gets easier. The sketchbook is out of perspective. It looks like you tried to shortcut on the left with a shift click and made it a straight up and down, but it really should be angled a bit.

    keep going on the potato one~

    Aye, agreed. I really need to focus on structure a lot, especially when working straight digi. I'm going to push the potato one a little further but the lighting situation in my room has become a bit iffy at the moment, I've got a lot of sketchbook pages to scan though. I sent another email with what I think is what I'd like to run with. Heres where the potato one is at right now.
