    I like your concepts and your forms are looking good. Will be keeping an eye for your updates.

    ilmenhin, hey thanks !

    Damn, I totally got lost in The Vampire Lestat, which is an awesome book, but I haven't done ANY studies the last two days, so I finally got around to putting it down and started to do some.

    Thanks for commenting on my SB

    This is an awesome new start! I like the dedication. If you are going to hatch the figures like that you should not just make the strokes go in one direction -- they should either go across the form or along it. If you go along it the forms tend to look slimmer and slenderer, for example you would use it on a young girl's arms. Going across the form makes the form more dimensional, powerful, thicker -- you would use it for a barbarian's brow ridge or something for instance. But don't just wash the lines in one direction, it will flatten the picture a ton.

    Another technical reason to not go in one direction only is that when you only go in one direction only part of the paper's tooth catches the graphite and it results in that unfinished, grainy look where you can still see the white/tooth of the paper through the shaded portions of the drawing. If you want to do washes instead of directional hatching as I described above, you should go in different directions to completely fill in the tooth of the paper.

    You can try crosshatching too instead of just varying the pressure of your hatching.

    Medelo, wow man, thanks for the time first of all! yeah i know what you mean, it's become a bad habit :/...im def going to work on that, i hope it shows in this post!

    krysjez, thanks for stopping by! yeah..iv tried crosshatching and it's really not my thing, thanks for the input though!

    Self portraits, some random anatomy, some Bouguereau studies (my scanner sucks and that page looks like SHIT even after trying to re-scan it..) iv never done studies like this before and I find it really enthralling!

    Just a little more of what I did earlier today, ended up reading again, which is fine since I really took my time on these studies, I think maybe 4 hours on the batch, but I feel like I learned a ton ! Here I come Lestat..

    Excellent updates. I really like the way you handle your shading, very clean and crisp and all the values look on point! Reveal thy secrets

    Keep it up!

    cgaddict, It's great to see you here! Thank you very much , haha I just take my time, it really helps to nail in the information you learn from doing the study! (a delicate touch also helps ). Hope to see you again!

    Here is what I have to show before some sleep, a quick self portrait (maybe 20 minutes?) and just a WIP of a Stag Beetle . I had more, but threw them away in frustration

    Here are some tea induced drawings I have done thus far. Just some random anatomy to warm the hands, then finished the beetle, and then, I forget how exactly Skeletor popped into my head, so i did my take on him, kind of rushed it in the end, but i just wanted to see how my anatomy was from imagination was!

    I like the underwear in the second drawing on here, for some reason it just strikes me as funny. Pretty good anatomy in general, as far as I can tell. Nice Skeletor-ish dude at the bottom there too

    WinterFortune, haha thanks

    cgaddict, thanks for taking a break

    So, this update is going to be crappy, and I apologize, I haven't slept in 48 hours, and it's not insomnia, it's just forced so I am very out of it. But now I am off for some rest!

    My first still life ! Then some random anatomy, I really want to do some ACTUAL life drawings :c, but hopefully when I start school in January, they will have something. Last one I used no ref, so the lines are a little shaky, and there are a few things off, but Ill be sure to fix them!
