    No problemo! And I just realized on the last one you switched values to draw from foreground to background.

    Wow, you are so creative and awesome. I love the album cover! I really like the studies on these last few pages, and the organic feel to your imagination drawings... Keep it up

    Hey everyone!
    thanks for the super nice comments . I've been away travelling and now it's time to practice again. I picked up a ton of inspiration but didn't get much drawing done while I was away. So i'm just going to settle back into plugging stuff into here every day. work my brain out.

    imagination sketch, WIP. i find it hard to sketch straight in colour and in form as opposed to line. if anyone has some tips or any good resources on this i'd appreciate it!

    Welcome back. I saw your monster and I did a double-take, then a triple-take, then I read the caption and laughed. Your skull is better than mine ... more interesting forms and proportions than my blob.

    avon: thankyou : )
    diamandis: wow, I didn't think there was actually much resemblance, it's funny that you got that. I think the thing i drew is quite different but since it started from an idea that i got from your pic, and its interesting how you can still see that original seed, even though its grown in a different direction.

    ---

    i started to paint the sketch i did on the last page. i love that sketch and am going to try and see it finalised, i think there's lots of good material in it but you cant really see it because the forms arent properly value-defined. this is re-painted from scratch though, since its a bit hard to fill in line-work like in the old sketch, and i want to practice painting forms and masses.

    thanks for the super kind words muddy!

    eclip-se oh man i was sure i told you about that. your bro is lucky, thailand is quite an amazing place to go to.
    i spent 12 hours on the commission, just copying it from a photo like a robot. if i knew more about drawing i'm sure it could be done in less time. thanks for your comments

    actually i just got myself a freelance job which is taking up aaaaaall of my time now and its mainly because of how slow i am at painting. i'm probably the slowest least efficient painter on the planet. havnt been able to work on any personal stuff, but ill try and bang in some studies here and there to keep the practice alive

    thanks parapauler, attention to detail is just time and careful observation. the stuff that has lots of detail was usually done over the period of several days or weeks. right now i am focusing on just getting fundamental stuff right and efficient drawing, which imho is really more important. any silly person can get something to look perfect if they just adjust it and refine it over and over again, given enough time (like the thousands of monkeys on typewriters). but really knowing how to draw or paint means doing things simply and well, so thats what im trying to learn now

    any feedback or crits or study recommendations highly appreciated

    This still life is looking super, good stuff.

    Your values look great, one thing I would say though is that you may want to look into edges and transitions between them, also when possible try to have a clean edge to the object by using the lasso tool and feathering if needed. I need to do some still lifes myself
