    This may sound odd, but I really like how you portray the weight of flesh in your drawings, especially with these last figures. The guy's backside, thigh, and calf all show the effects of gravity on the flesh, as well as the angled lower leg, tension in the shoulder, and angled fingers of the lady. They feel grounded.

    Also, it's interesting to see the excitement and motion present in a lot of your cartoons compared against the languid contentment of the Procyonians. You really do have a way with subtly getting a point across in your art.

    Thanks. The weight is very apparent in the VP2 reference, of course; it's just the matter of reading it. These things aren't always very visible, just like muscles and other landmarks may not be too easy to see in the video; they have to be inferred and tracked, and I like to exaggerate them a little. I guess that's part of the point of doing these studies from time to time - keeps me on the ground too.

    Interesting observation about the Procyonians... I like my cartoons with action, but it seems that I tend to stick the Procyonians into serene pictures. Not really sure why.

    Speaking of which, I made some sketches of Procyonians during the same VP session - in the same poses, just to practice the differences between them and the human figures. Someone around here had been saying that they have human figures with rat heads stuck on them... that's not true.

    Hi matey

    Liking the updates, and I must admit that I too often think that I should get out to a life drawing class or two but my home life and kids gets in the way, so my advice to you would be don' put it off and do it while you can before other duties and excuses get in the way!

    You know I hate being sad and old and fully loaded with wisdom that I ignore and yet pass out freely to all unsundry!! LOL

    As to the great Internet debate "1960s ARPAnet experiments" I have been around since 1964 and loved the computer revolution in all its guises, all the acorn electrons the BBC model A & B up to my all time favorite the Amstrad CPC464 which was the first one to be supplied with a monitor and not a TV modulator, Ah the memories!! LOL

    Stay well my mate and thanks for posting both here and in the WIP section its much appreciated by me anyhow.

    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    I love this sketchbook so much! Your style is quite nice and your understanding of form and construction is impressive. Your characters are so expressive...you make drawing look and feel so easy and not to mention, above all, fun. Haha

    Ayao sketches

    Between the day job and the extra projects I barely have time to sketch for myself...

    I found this practice page from April in the pile a couple of days ago. Apparently I had forgotten to scan it back then.

    These are the Ayao-type Procyonians. The little stocky guys are just 4 feet tall or so.

    VP2 study

    I do like to draw this VP2 model - very sturdily built, but very well-proportioned and feminine.

    Wrestlers

    Thanks, Leonor, Cojac, Lightship69, twilightmoon777, Jonesoda!

    Sooooo.... here's some more practice stuff. The guy on the right has overextended, and about to flop, since the guy on the left is ready to pull and twist.

    Shade

    A lighting study that went too far, and the first full-blown painting I made in ArtRage - at least one that I think qualifies as painting, and not a doodle.

    Always love seeing your new art, especially the focco. They're quite inspirational in their natural form, and this piece is no exception. The colored art also makes for lovely phone wallpapers.

    I like your style too. Thank you! Though I frankly never thought about using my pictures as wallpapers.

    Thank you humbly! You are too kind.

    I've looked at your sketchbook; I'll reply there.

    Thank you! I am constantly practicing at form solidity, since it's been my weaker point back when I began, and if I am not careful, it is too easy to lapse and inadvertently let old automation kick in.


    There's nothing finished that I am allowed to post at the moment, but let's continue with some practice sketches...

    Two kitties and a frog

    I stumbled on this forgotten pair of ten-minute doodles while digging in the scanned pictures.

    Two different characters respond to the same challenge in their characteristic ways. The frog, on the other hand, is just happy to be there.

    Woman with a snake

    A practice sketch; figure study from memory. Initial rough and clean version included.

    I am reasonably pleased with the overall feeling of body mass. Not too happy about the right ankle.

    Satyr and bacchante

    An amorous satyr chases a laughing, inebriated bacchante. Too bad she isn't taking him at all seriously.

    (Heh, I notice I made the thyrsus, the free hand and the flying hair locks touch the same horizontal. Shy of the paper edge, obviously. )

    VP2 study

    Your drawings are really good. It would be cool to see some more painting from you. I hope to draw as well as you in the near future.

    Hi matey

    Just whizzed by to make sure you are ok, I am more than willing to provide you with a bolt hole if you need one mate, I saw on the news that there was trouble in your part of the world. I hope for the sake of all concerned that they get round a table and sort it out and dont resort to stupidity with guns.

    Any how to your posts, yes they are all pretty good as usual, but the movement and expression that you got in Post 110 with the "pwetty pweeze and NO!" was simply brilliant old chap great stuff, I am in awe of your greatness again!! LOL

    Stay well my mate and keep your head down, OK!? all the best.

    Thanks. Sadly, I don't have enough time to do any painting worth that name right now. As for drawing as well as me - you should aim to draw better than me.

    Thanks for the kind invitation. The trouble was at the other end of the country, this time, and mostly a nuisance rather than deadly - owing to the newly rolled out interception system for artillery rockets.

    Yes, I rather like that sketch too, even though you are making me a bit uncomfortable with proclamations of awe and all that.

    Hunters

    I made that demo for someone here on CA.org - glad to know you find it useful too. And yes, I like to portray them as rather serene people.
