    These things are secret please move along.

    I'd had another sketchbook here for awhile. I'd decided to retire it, and start with a new one. It helps with my mindset, I think.

    I'll be posting my work here as it happens and as I can. Please forgive what may be drastic change(s) in mood, mannerisms, or styles for the duration of this thread.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice start to a new sketchbook! I really like the interplay between shading with line and shading with smudge (finger?). Love to see some of these finished. Keep it up brotha!

    I'm gonna be a broken record here, and repeat that the smudge+line shading compliment eachother nicely. I dig!

    Thanks everyone. The smudginess is charcoal powder a good portion of the time. Right now I'm just fiddling with it, and when I'm not using any sealant and the sketches are kept in a ring bound book they wind up losing 70% of it, but it's no big deal. Just experimenting for now. 90% of everything (anything that's not charcoal powder tossed around) is a bic mechanical pencil.

    US Assassin: I've never really found that the scanner matters a whole lot. Right now I'm using some "all-in-one" hp photosmart plus printer, it's not mine. It's not a fancy scanner, and it does just as good as one I had 8 or 10 years ago. The quality comes from tweaking the contrast to match close to what it looks like in the book, and making sure to sharpen the image to various degrees before shrinking it.

    Did some more work on one of the sketches above. I'll also go ahead and post this work in progress digital from this past month, I'll try to pick it up again sometime here soon. Most of it will be redone but it's nice to get some ideas and plan ahead.

    I think you may be overusing those highlights, a tad. Definitely a decent understanding of form, though. Just keep studying, 'n keep arting.

    Thanks you three. Jovian you're likely right about the white, it's something I'm still finding a balance on. It's especially difficult, because it doesn't show up half as much in person. The scanner does weird things to images from the cream colored sketchbook.

    Did some more on the one above. I'm hoping to get back into some digital over the next few days. I had to reformat last week, though, and wound up losing some of my brushes as a result. Will have to remake those, I suppose.

    These are looking great, very interesting.
    I especially like this last one.
    I don't think you are using the whites incorrectly. Rather I think it is an issue of the light source being direct on from the viewer. The result is that the whites are all clumped up towards the center of the figure. Maybe moving the light source around and using multiple sources would do the trick.
