POW! told you i would drop by!
firstly i would like to congratulate you on a top rate sketchbook, and i must say your posting is keeping me posting. SO DUN STOP!
secondly...Your poses are awesome dude, I really like how loose but proportionate they are, and how you've done it in minimum lines. something i am very envy of. Keep at it!
your enviro refs are looking pretty damn good too ( if this is of any help to you, it might give you some fresh inspiration for crazy architecture, as well as other stuffle )
one thing if I may addd, i'd love to see you push the atmosphere a bit more in your enviros, like the hills in your last colour image feel like they kinda end in the mid ground, bit of water vapour in that atmosphere, would soften it a lil. just something i've noticed
another thing I think which might be worth keeping an eye out for, would be a focal area, in a lot of your enviros, everywhere seems pretty similarly rendered, your roboto/mech in Post 42 looks reallly dynamic, where you have the tight details and the suggestive ground areas and it really works at making the image more interesting. Just try an keep those energetic loose or suggestive marks in and the tight details only where you need them and try not to worry about rendering it all with little round, big round wants to be loved too!
I hope that didn't sound like a rant, because your images are shit hot mate. POST MORE! i need you to keep me on my toes.

Ha that didnt sound like a rant at all mate,
Atmosphere and focal point are definitely something i need to look into. Lately i find i get so sucked into studies that all im doing and just copying. I wanna do studies but really push my own painting onto it, and work with enhancing the lighting and effects and atmosphere of the piece. Make it look awesome (only if need be!). Only just flicked through that link, and it looks amazing - will investigate further. cheers!
My late night work for today (or should i say tomorrow... its 2:30....gotta stop doing this).
Just pushing the perspective some more. Probably shouldnt have spent so long on it - need to spend more time thinking about how to assemble a composition and interesting structures in perspective. And well, im finding i do alot of rather boring shapes than once ive started i have to work backward to work around all the boring box shapes i did. But hey, im getting somewhere i think.
I love do environments, so expect to see more.
My pictar - then the mess of lines it came from, there should probably be more of them, shows i cut corners.

Wow PHATandy! I'm really not in any position to critique your work. I just wanted to say how much I really like your SB. The range of work your doing is impressive. So often you see people who do figurative work exclusively or mainly enviros. You seem equally comfortable across the board.

hey PHATandy! Thank you for stopping by my sketchbook and dropping me some helpful words :3. Your sketchbook is great and I can see the effort you put into your studies. Your line quality is great both digitallly/traditionally. Hehe that's a great idea that your tutor had for your life drawing session, good improv. without the model (^-^d) Keep it up my friend, i'll be watching your sb.

Thanks for the crits in mine too! They were right on!
I love the fashion studies and the perspective/enviro stuff....that's something I'm dying to learn.
Ah thanks for the inspiration...you rock!

ah haaa, so many comments! Thanks so much guys!.
Nickeybeats- Thanks bro!
Crazy3dman- Thanks, and yeh thats what i aim to do. Ive never liked the idea of weaknesses so i try and spread my time equally, always working out my weakest areas. Well thats the theory anyway!
Teapo- Thank you very much, and it is good. Life drawing is awesome, but its even better when u get to put it into pratice with the clothed figure. And drawing funny pictures of your friends.
ThomasM- No problem and thank you, i left some feedback in your SB hope it helps
oren90- thank you! I should hope so, perspective is one of my stronger points (i think !!??)
Kingkostas- no problem buddy, i really enjoyed looking through your work, the pleasure was all mine.
Texahol- haha its just practice and reading lots and lots of comics. Im an Absolute sucker for some good pencil sketches or inked linework.
Mc2mc2- no problem buddy, and thanks loads. Means something when i love your SB so much. Your improvement rate is insane, your getting so goooood!
And tonights work - last of the perspective stuff for a teeenny while (a few days). But working in a little chunk like this was good, gave me just enough focus to improve a little each day. And working with perspective let me get some imagination on the go! But ill be back to some anatomy and figure stuff soon i think. Gonna look into character design stuff and pushing anatomy and silhouettes and all that. My characters are probably the worst part of my repertoire - i love drawing them, but i dont quite have the skills id like to put my designs and ideas out. Maybe mix it with some ID stuff, using this perspective work.
But im fairly happy with this. Most of the time with this stuff i just have a problem with my ideas, i find im drawing such mundane stuff. I have this crazy idea somewhere in my head, but i just cant figure it out or find it on the paper. But ill keep on going methinks!.
