    Your studies are inspiring. I also love the vibrance of your paintings.

    it's funny you mention Perspective made easy i walked into a thrift store and stumbled onto that book yesterday and got a 1946 print for 15 cents.

    i was wondering if it was any good and since your using it ill take that as a positive sign.

    shambok: Thank you!

    DStraX:
    Thanks. I generally draw / paint fairly well with photo references, but I think I'll be doing more life studies. They're a bit more challenging and a lot more fun for me.

    jigje: Thank you. Them jeans were a lot of fun to paint, especially the little details.

    tobbA: Thanks, and will do!

    fantasyartist:
    Your critiques are right on, it's actually a huge problem for me... I think it's because I'm generally very good with contour, but focusing too much on that can make my drawings look flat... which seems to be the case. I'll definitely work more on form as you mentioned. Thank you for your honesty.

    Black Spot:
    Appreciate it, and will do regarding the perspective lines.

    vikramranu:
    Thank you.

    vatteh: Thank you. Shading is a lot faster in Photoshop for me, it's a bit too time consuming with traditional pencils so I try to keep that to a minimum.

    The US Assassin: Appreciate it. I haven't used that book that much yet, but as far as I can tell, it's very useful. It covers one, two, and three point perspective, and has some very useful exercises as well. It's definitely worth trying out!


    ...........


    I'm currently busy with a commercial project that involves pretty much portraits, so I dropped the perspective studies for a bit... Which sucks, because that's the biggest area I need improving on as far as I can tell. Hopefully I'll pick it up again soon. Here's some sketches I did since the last update; Lots of different approaches to handling figures, I'm trying to just concentrate a bit more on form as opposed to contour and gesture. Pose Maniacs is actually a huge help in that regard, so I'll definitely be doing a lot of those.
















































































    .......


    And that'll be all for now. Thanks for looking, critiques and feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

    Your heads are really coming along nicely, your figures too. I noticed in some bodys the breast is defying gravity a bit, I try to imagine 'em like bags lying on top of the ribcage so they flat out a bit and follows the form. Also try to follow the form of the boobie around to get a good place for the nipple.




    boobies!

    Really liking you portraits, especially the ladies. They have a real classy look to them.

    I agree a bit with alexson about the boobies, I havn't seen boobies that were round atop the point of the nipple, unless the woman was wearing a push up bra or something. I also feel the booties are a bit too -out- there. They're nice, but I think they don't quite fit some of the figures they are attatched to.

    Over all though, awesome work.

    Although perspective is important, you can wing it a lot of the time - I do. Just knowing the general principals can go a long way.

    Back to butts. Please look at a lot. It's the one area that is falling down.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Whoa... Those studies.. That's an aweful lot of work in one post... Good job man.

    The studies are looking really good. If I had to give any advice, I would say that studying shading would probably help you at the moment. The shaded portraits at the begin of the post look like a good start. But it could help to try to experience more with shading

    That is really the hugest update in one post I've ever seen. Your figure studies and determination toward them are really inspiring! I'd probably die after a few pages.

    I also agree about the butts, in some of the figures they look off. Just a minor thing to fix.

    If ever I think iv done enough studies I just pop to your page and wait till I am able to lift my jaw.

    Ignore the quanty dont think im overlooking quality. Really like the confidnce in the figure construction. Definly work on the but area though. Also sometimes the facial feature placement seems slightly off. Id love for you to play with proporiton on a couple of them and get some design down, some fun crazy stuff. Maybe thats just me.

    Great studies - One crit would be perhaps show a little more difference in line weight (or maybe its just that the photos have flattened it). Another is perhaps break your lines up more. A solid line flattens any shape whereas a slightly broken one adds depth, leaving your eye to fill in the gaps

    That's hardcore man, don;t know what to comment first. Actually, i think there is no reason to write anything, only real dedication. It must be very difficult to stay at one line without doing a second at the top of another. Really clean and solid work. I'd say that you must do some more faces with special characteristics. I mean, it's obvious you are good at "mainstream" man/woman faces. Keep up and take care man.

    a la bapsi: Indeed

    alexson: Thank you, good point regarding the breastases, I should definitely think more about gravity when I draw them... will keep that in mind.

    Lostcookie: Thank you; I have to give credit to Andrew Loomis for the 'classy' look, it's something I learned while studying his work. Good point regarding the buttoxes, I need to make the shapes a bit more oval on some angles, which I'm doing now. Thanks for your honesty.

    Black Spot: Very true regarding, I can definitely wing it a bit, but I want to refine my technique a bit and gain a more solid understanding of it in general. Putting more thought into the buttox as well

    MiladThaha: Thanks, I always have a blast with underwater scenes, there very fun to paint, especially when keeping in mind lighting and colors. Will work on my butts more

    Luckers: Thank you. I try my best to draw daily for as long as time allows. Regarding shading, I don't see much point to doing it traditionally to be honest... I can work so much faster when shading with the computer, but it is something I will do more study of in the future... But I feel like I have other weaknesses to tackle that are far more important at this time.

    shambok: Thank you. Really enjoy your sketchbook btw, especially your character designs - they're ACE.

    skMOP: Thank you. I really enjoy sketching, it's something that requires a lot of patience on my part, but it ultimately pays off so it's well worth it. I'm putting more thought and effort into the butts as well, I seemed to have been breezing through them before which wasn't a good idea based on all the feedback I'm receiving, lol.

    Whirly: Thank you, it's great to hear that my sketchbook can motivate others. I actually do the same thing, work my ass off, then browse other artist's sketchbooks, get inspired, and draw some more. That always does the trick

    I agree that I can play around with different proportions and such, but now I'm much more concerned nailing the ideal figure down, working on gesture, etc... But that is something I will definitely play around with more in the future.

    Pixie Trick: Will do

    zou: Appreciate it.

    SageTso:
    Thank you, and will do.

    ThomasM: Thank you; Line weight is something I really need to work on I admit. I'll definitely keep your critiques in mind regarding line in the future, much appreciated.

    knut-: Thank you. Regarding faces, I'm very eager to do more caricature work, but it's important for me to concentrate on being able to draw the ideal face in a variety of angles at this point.

    Metal Fingers: Thank you, and will do.

    BAN_KAI: Regarding the 'DOLL' look, what I do is break down the figure into simple forms, cylinders mostly. The head can be broken down into an egg, the torso a rectangle, the arms and legs simple cylinders, etc. A good book on this is titled: "The Figure - The Classic Approach to Drawing and Construction' . Hope this helps!

    .........................................



    Thanks everyone for taking the time to comment; I apologize for the late reply, I was on vacation for the last 3 weeks... had a blast, and didn't draw much during this time (save for a few drawings for family and friends). I'm back on track again with my studies, focusing much more on gesture this time around.

    ..............................

    Nice, man! Have you checked out Glenn Vilppu's videos? They are really great for anatomy and figure drawing. You can probably find 'em on youknowwhatbay or something Keep up the good work!

    Emil_: Appreciate it

    alexson: Yep, I own several of his videos... I haven't gone through them as of yet, want to do some more gesture studies before I study his videos.

    ..................

    Today's updates, did a crapload of gesture studies. I'll definitely be doing these daily as gesture is easily the most important aspect of figure drawing... Additionally I moved on to studies of the human legs as well, which I'll be doing all month...

    ..........................

    cpt. kuDa: Thank you.

    bakatron: Appreciate it. I'm planning to fill my sketchbook with nothing but buttox.

    MattGamer: Very true, and I have a very bad habit of underestimating it's usefulness, so I make sure I practice on gesture daily. Thanks for your support as well, much appreciated!

    ........................

    Today's updates: More practice on the legs, and did quite a bit of K Chen studies as well. I really dig Chen's approach to figure drawing, so I'll be making more intense studies of his work throughout the week. Also continued to practice gesture, which I'll definitely be doing daily.

    Yeah my sketchbook is filled with a lot of ass aswell but I think we are talking about different things

    Great that you looking in Kevin Chens stuff!

    I think maybe some of the legs look a bit thin.

    I must get my routine to include gestures and not just life drawings of people. Gestures so so key in what I am aiming for in the future. Btw, nice legs. Lol
