    If you're still looking for an answer, I think your SB badge is the first image in the thread. if you want to change it you have to edit your first post, take out the pictures you have in the attachement and put in what you want the new badge to be. Anyway, your stuff's looking good, keep drawing!

    Sorry for such a long gap between updates.

    Here are some eye studies I did tonight.

    I need to learn to go faster. Sadly this is about 2 hours work.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Here is another Anatomy Study. This took two two hour sessions. I stopped when I felt I was making it worse. Painfully slow... painfully.

    Just some doodles I drew while watching Marshal Vandruff's Anatomy for Artists class. So far it seems like a great class. I'm only 2 hours in.

    Hey folks,

    Here is a portrait study I finished today. 8 hours work in Photoshop CS2.

    The reference is of the lovely Angela, found here.

    Critiques always welcome.

    You may want to start thinking about using your line work and line clarity to define forms. It looks like things start getting a bit muddy for you (maybe from overworking them). Still this is good work and always worth the effort to achieve more

    Artists have such a magnificent gift...breathing life into something with just simple lines.

    @EBrown: Thanks for taking the time to reply! I think you are right. I really struggle trying to find a balance between using contrasts and lines. I appreciate your input.

    I was going for a more dynamic pose here. Drawn without reference... rendered without skill.

    Another Portrait study.

    Three hours in Photoshop. I did this one entirely on one layer. This is a first for me. I liked the process a lot.

    Crits welcome as always.

    Reference here.

    Sorry to keep blasting you guys with this piece but it's all I'm working on just now.

    Still very much a WIP. I'm about done with the jacket. Started on shirt tonight. Hopefully get back to refining the hair, face and hand soon.

    Been a crazy couple weeks here at home. Haven't been able to work as much as I'd like. Here is the latest WIP on my Bomber girl pic. Clothes are pretty much done. Begun working on the face and decided I hated the hair so I'm reworking that.

    Crits always welcome.

    Great images but to me, it seems like the eyes are slightly wonky. The black and white portrait eye seems bigger than the other.

    It occurred to me that this is a sketchbook... not a portfolio. Sure I have many studies and WIP's in this thread but sadly it is largely devoid of the common sketch. I am to fix this.

    Here is a bunch of sketches I had lying about on my hard drive. I work mostly in digital so these are all tablet drawings. I have some in my physical sketchbook from our local Drink & Draw. I should get those scanned in.

    Until then... enjoy.

    [These are in no particular order though many are named using the date they were drawn. Some from as far back as 2009.]

    [Additionally, a couple of these are studies of other artists work so please no accusations of plagiarism. ]

    Here is a bit of a semi-commish (unpaid) that I did for Drabblecast #73. The main story was called All In.

    The text is just filler text, you can ignore it.

    Here is the most recent of my Bombergirl image. The Drabblecast commission pulled me away from this for a few days.

    Glad to be back at it.

    Probably 15 hours into this one. God I'm slow.

    Eh... Got irritated at the left (right from perspective) breast before I really got it wrapped up. Main just studying value. I'm beyond fail with color.

    Oh well, here it is.

    This image came from my weekly drink and draw with the Louisville Cartoonists Society.

    It's derived from a joke between a friend of mine about a random honey we were surreptitiously leering at. (Yes, I know. I'm a horn dog. I don't apologize.)

    Crits welcome as always...

    Does anyone else do this?

    Last night when I did these studies I hated them. I mean... I struggled to post them rather than find a way to virtually burn them.

    This morning, I see loads of problems, but also I see some good anatomy mixed in. It was no where to be seen last night.

    Does anyone else find hidden quality in their scribbles after a night? a week? a month?

    Just curious.

    Back from vacation! Disney with the kids was exhausting. You know it's bad when you are glad to be back at work so you can relax.

    Here are today's lunchtime studies. This is probably my favorite way to draw people. I start with a bag of flour type shape to represent the torso. Then I begin to work that shape into a torso and ultimately a person.

    I spent about 5-7 minutes on each.

    These are entirely without reference. C'mon folks. Let me know how I'm doing!
