    More studies! Tried to practice my process with figure drawing, the first one
    I noticed that the head/shoulders were not correct so I started again,
    not entirely happy with the second one either. I think over the next few weeks
    I am really going to focus on my drawing process when doing figures, the
    whole contruction/form of my figures is slacking a bit.

    Also another quick self-portrait and another piece from life drawing class!

    Self-Portrait is a step back this week, need to step up my game. I am going to
    stop jumping around with my studies for a while and really focus on the
    portraits and figures. Enjoying Jack Hamm's book on Scenery a lot, really
    helpful so far in building up good compositions, general landscapes and
    drawing technqiues.

    No class again due to work. T_T
    This week I've been trying to construct my figures using the Loomis/Bridgman
    methods, placing the muscles etc. I've also practised drawing my brow as I feel
    the eyes are the weakest part in my portraits, i need to carry across the
    quality of these to my full portraits, as I'd say they are superior in every way
    compared to my other portraits. Bring on my next portrait to see if i can pull
    it off!

    Cheers!

    Plenty of figure drawing this week, practised drawing the muscles onto figures
    and also got to my life drawing class. I think it might be my best one yet!
    Played around in photoshop some more too, trying to render the ol' ball + light!

    Whenever I do full portraits they seem to fail, the small amount of progress I
    was making with them seems to have stopped. Bah!
    I do like the outcome of the ball in photoshop, so this week wasn't a
    complete failfest.

    Two problems popped up this week with life drawing, first, he looks like his far
    leg is not attached to his hip, second the perspective of the bench looks off
    (and maybe the entire piece). I knew something was off while working on it so I
    was constantly double checking the measurements of everything but this is the
    end result.

    Big load of different things! Boxes in photoshop, some landscapes and an attempt at drawing the shed in my back garden, some self-portraits and something from my life-drawing class!

    Cheers!

    Portrait from last week finished, the one I started yesterday doesn't look as good, I think the nose/eyes are off, so I'm probably going to start again.

    @ JiR Thanks for the compliment

    Not a massive amount of work this week
    Some quick studies and something from my life drawing class. I think I've missed
    the brachialis muscle from the armpit. Derp.

    @luthertaylor Cheers!

    Continuing to follow Loomis' shadow techniques, and I don't know if I've made
    a mistake because the shadow of the house object just looks off, mainly the
    point of the roof.

    On a plus side, went to life drawing and did my best lying down pose yet!
    The perspective is a bit off on the bench but I still think it is miles better than
    my other lying down poses.

    your studies are going great! I see lots of effort to understand the shape and mass of your character and 3d object! Keep on going like that you'll progress in no time !
    By the way, it would be awesome to see some colored stuff in here !
    I'll be back to check

    @ luthertaylor Ha! Cheers again, I felt I overcome a hurdle with it, now
    I just need to see if i can repeat it next time.

    @ Wavenwater Thank you! I really want to get a solid grasp on form,
    which is why I havnt really touched colour! I have read James Gurney's Color &
    Light
    so I can hopefully notice the things he talks about as I'm out and about.
    In truth colour scares me at the moment...

    More stuff this week! I would say I am finally happy with a self-portrait I've
    done but the two sides of the face don't match up perfectly ...Next time!

    And I tried to light the shapes from the front but it just doesn't look right,
    it's hard trying to render how the light works without seeing it first.

    Hi, thanks for commenting in my sketchbook.

    Some very fine pencil work going on here, your figure studies and portraits are especially good, I would try out different angles more though and try to include the entire head in a composition.

    Keep up the good work, your work ethic is great.

    As for the cubes, I bought them off ebay and painted them white, heres a link,

    @ black-swan Cheers! I agree about doing the full head/different angles,
    my next step is the full head so I need to get some hair practice! Thanks for
    the cubes link too, I will be buying some for sure!

    Been doing gesture studies as warm up before my daily drawing, hopefully
    you can make some out below, I might have tried to put too many on the page,
    and my pencil work is a bit light.

    Plus some more photoshop practice, another self-portrait and finally another
    lying down life-drawing!

    A few anatomny studies from the new ImagineFX book. I can also see an
    improvement in the light/boxes and the self-portrait, even if the eyes are still
    off. Once I'm happy with the eyes and hair I'll begin messing around with the
    angles of the head a bit more.

    + more gestures!

    Life drawing this week was a complete failure! I was trying something new
    when about half way in realised it was going so, so wrong. The end image
    was my attempt to save this weeks session.

    Cubes came and done a few quick pencil sketches of them, I'm spraying
    them white at the moment so I couldn't use them as much as I wanted. The
    self-portrait is still being a thorn in my side... I was nearly at the end of
    the papers life with the eyes, and they are still off!

    I also can finally say i might be over the lying down model hump. Really happy
    with the results of life-drawing this week.

    You are showing a great progress! way the go.
    you'r self portraits really look better and better!
    I think you should put a-bit more pressure with the pencil, because everything
    turns out light gray-sh

    keep it up

    Glad you got the cubes, there's improvement in those already. Also, the self portraits are really coming along and I like the foreshortening in your figure studies. Keep up the good work

    @ Chompi'n I agree about the greyness. I've began using a wider range of pencils now, before i was just using a 6B which might have been why it was looking a little flat. Hopefully it can be seen in some of the new box sketches I've put up. Cheers!

    @ black-swan Thank you, I am loving the cubes. I might make them the subject of my first oil painting whenever I pick it up.

    @ Vailence Thanks a lot!

    CA is back! Been a bit lazy over the past month, but I have been doing some studies. I'm not going to post them all up but here's a small selection. I've stopped on the self-portraits too and just been focusing on the eyes.

    Mixed it up this week with some reading and studying from Jack Hamm's Drawing Scenery book. I find trying out his methods while reading a better way to learn than just reading the book, below
    are some of the sketches. I'll jump on the self-portraits again soon!

    Where I work has asked us to create a personal poster and I've decided to use this to try and do some personal creative work for the first time. My idea is to have a Spartan illustrated and text at the bottom, that'll all come about when the image is sorted. I was happy with my first attempt but over time I felt the character looked static and also unstable. My second attempt is also posted, hopefully it's a lot more dynamic!

    Picked up the portraits again, I havnt posted it because its a serious step back but hopefully I can pick up where I left off quickly.

    Life Drawing this week also didnt turn out as I hoped. When I got home I noticed how odd the shoulder area looked, like it's from a completely different model. I have no idea how I managed this, completely ruined the image!
    Bring on the next time.

    @Justyna Thank you very much

    @luthertaylor Wow thanks, glad you've noticed! Hopefully it won't slow down.

    More studies, still having lots of fun with the landscapes. Progressed a tiny bit with the spartan too, but I can tell I am about to hit a brick wall. I want to keep a simple comic book style render to it, I just don't know how to pull it off in a decent way. Will need to experiment until I'm happy with it.

    Cheers all!

    really enjoy your landscape sketches! I've been bombing through doing landscapes gestures! really fun! If they are from imagination keep going but if they are from life or photos, I'd pay special attention to the value's and try capture it regardless of it being a quick sketch. what makes a landscape work is generally a variety in values i think.
    your spartan is coming along nicely! man looking forward to seeing how far you take it

    @ luthertaylor So far all of my landscapes are from imagination, trying to drill the methods into my head. I havn't tried from life yet, but whenever I try at the train station they seem to fail. In my latest batch I have tried to watch the values (more so on the bottom right one), i'll try to keep in mind over the next lot through out. Thanks again.

    Studies! Posted a self portrait, this one didnt take aslong as the others but then again I don't think it is my best.
    Looking at the spartan I am unsure about the direction I've taken it, might need to go back to the drawing board.
