    my studies

    After a lot of dramatic changes in my life I decided to seriously dive in art as deep as possible,hopefully never leave it again...These are the first serious studies I did from photos for the last 2 months-trying a technique I've never tried before-only circles-I like the effect it has.
    I appreciate all advice and critique!
    Thanks!

    The new one

    This took me little bit more time and the paper was horrible - copy of an artist I never heard of before - Brochart.

    Fantastic studies. Especially your figures - you have a very 'renaissance-esque' quality to your line which is so lacking in work now-a-days. Also very sound perspective. You have pretty good accuracy, but as with anyone, continue to push that (Good job with the Bargue) The only thing I can suggest you invest time improving upon is your shading. I don't usually suggest this to most people because there's so much more to rendering form than modelling, but its equally worth your time. I'm a little confused because you seem to be using hatching in some pieces and in others your using these sort of 'spirals' or circles. Try identifying your values by understanding what's going on with planes and forms - Tony Ryder has a great chapter about how he identifies values by looking at the form and how the light cuts across it in his figure drawing book. I hope this helps.

    Continue the great work.

    Its brilliant. Even i have got lot of interest in you mode of studies. Its great work and very articular. You have very cleanly done this art work and I really like the curl mode of shading. The backgrounds are very clear. Just a one suggestion i would give that use little dark shades to the main subjects or the parts.

    Oh,thank you so much for your critique,guys!
    Oruhito,all this for now is just copies of whatever my teacher gives me-I love his approach-he gives me to draw everything and lets me experiment with cross hatching or circle shading,but actually he teaches me that shading should be absolutely smooth-no lines should be seen and the pencil should disappear - what I tried with the cube above.I don't really know what's right or wrong and is there right or wrong or it's just a question of personal style.This is also very different from what my previous teachers had told me because I was teached to use ONLY cross hatching,because THIS is right.
    The figures are copies from very bad print pieces which I think is very good exercise because it makes me search in the pixel sfumato.
    I will check Tony Ryder-thank you a lot!
    Leosmith678,thank you so much for your opinion!Yes,you're right I am actually VERY cautious with the pencil and I tend to shade lighter!My teacher tells me the same!
    Thanks again,guys!

    This is some very serious nature studying I did from a National Geographic photo-it took me a lot of time and concentration-3 weeks but from 1 to 4 hours a day...so I don't really know the exact time!Anyway!I am really glad of the result and most of all of all the things I learned from this exercise!

    U sure is tackling ur training from all direction. Those figure copies and the drawing of the tap is awesome. Show that u are trying to understand the principle of construction and drawing instead of mere copying. Your figures drawing are coming out nicely too. Proportion is fairly good. You acn try to be more careful with ur shading and not shade it in a untidy way. Have a rhythm in the way you shade, either over the form to accentuate the solidarity or try to shade in one particular direction (usually from bottom left to top right for right-handers) to have a sense of unity and grace. (or combination of both) Keep it coming !

    Yeah I'm definitely going to try your circular technique next time! I'm not going to be there this Saturday since I'll be in Toronto, but after that we'll have to flip through each other's sketchbooks! BTW, I love the Grecian studies-- gorgeous.
