    Some gestures from pixellovely and the still life I finished. Now I can play Call of Duty again.

    Done in Photoshop. Landscapes and painting baffle and infuriate me. Which means I should do it more. =(

    Some stuff I've drawn recently. Still pegging away at backgrounds.

    I used life drawing for the 1st instead of guessing again. Everything else is from a photo.

    Heh, we share the same first name.
    But yes, anyways, great sketchbook! Try using different custom brushes to create the texture you're looking for. It helps a lot. c:

    -a blanket and chair from life in color pencil.
    -faces, the one of the guy is from life.
    -drawings from life and composites photo references. It's a WIP for an illustration.
    - And people from life when I went to Starbucks. At times it got slow so I drew from imagination but most of it is customers. In graphite and ink.

    I work a lot lately but I try to shove drawing in. Most of this is drawn on break from Google images and imagination.

    Wow time flies. My flow of posting has been interrupted. Not to worry, I have been drawing these past few months. Random drawings plus a self portrait, some landscape value and color studies, from reference and life respectively. I'm still hunkering down and working on those landscapes.

    Some drawing I've done in the past months. The table and cat are from life. The 2nd and 3rd are from photo. I've started doing studies from the Jack Hamm Drawing Landscapes book. The last 2 are composition studies.

    Hi Nicole, I did a quick paintover on your last illustration of the week entry, great idea, I love the traditional medium and composition. (I hope you don't mind or anything)

    I really like your dedication and approach to art. My favourite post is the reclining woman from the 30minute pixelovely study on post 83. It's unusual to see someone working in coloured pencils, keep this up as it's definitely a good thing. If you're struggling with the environment studies (I know how you feel) you might want to look at Fengzhu design cinema youtube channel, he has some great explanations and process when tackling landscapes. Good luck, keep studying and keep posting.

    And some illustration work. Because only drawing studies gets boring and the only way to learn to finish work is to finished worked.

    A drawing I have no plans to finish.

    This I will finish if it kills me. If anyone has suggestions I'm all ears. I'll probably be putting a better picture of it in the WIP section actually.

    Alice in Wonderland sketch again. Pencil on the left, Pen on the right. Seeing what values I want to use and how'll deal with the plants. References are in order. Look for this one in the WIP section someday as well.

    More landscape work I just did.

    Five minute gestures in ink. I'm not sure if I have the right idea w/ gestures+environments but it certainly loosened me up.

    they are a great compositional tool. and would help before you get too far into a piece and then hate it casue you then see it isnt gonna work
