    Hey Colin, you should name yourself crazy_lines instead of eyes! LOL your lines are awesome and everything about the figure you do is just right, I love them all.
    I think your thread is one of the most educational sketchbooks I've seen on CA I actually opened a word file on my computer and saved the stuff you explain here, gold... at some point I stopped looking at the sketches you do and just wanted to read more of what you have to teach! LOL.
    It's amazing how simple things get when you grow your skill to the level you are, few lines and it looks like a master piece, gotta work harder for sure... if I ever want to get close to your level of figures, thanks for all the links too!

    cheers

    ryanoir: Mostly life drawing... if you check the art schools in your area, there are bound to be open figure drawing sessions.. Just look around, there are always artists drawing the model somewhere, and it's totally worth it! I'm going to start hiring my own models eventually. This website is really helpful, and you can filter the search to find out which models live closest to you. www.modelmayhem.com
    theUNKNOWNsketcher: Actually, YOU make you happy! :p But it makes me happy to know that YOU make yourself happy by thinking that I make you happy. lol
    Feil Magnus: And all I can say is, THANKS!
    Danny K: Thanks man that means a lot! I only ask that you not take my words too seriously, and discover things for yourself. I have a rule in life that always helps me: Never take ANYONE'S bulls*&t too seriously... especially your own! In the end, the parameters that define what constitutes a "good image" exist entirely between your two ears. It's up to you to learn from as many artists/styles/techniques/processes as possible, and create YOUR OWN model of how to create an image. A lot of what I've posted is flat out wrong, or will not apply to what you are doing. Try it on for a while, maybe see if you like it... but decide for yourself! I know enough to know that I don't know enough! CHEERS! By the way, none of this is "easy" for me, for every image i post, there are 50 others that absolutely suck! lol!

    deadly peach: Thanks!
    ryanoir: You can always just draw the people around you! I actually go to bars, coffee shops, malls and draw the people i see there... good speed practice too, because they move a lot... especially the drunks lol.

    3 hr (observation) -used a layer of soft vine charcoal and pulled lights with a kneaded eraser.. values got confused, kinda failed...

    I think it is boring for you. Always great, good, incredible etc.
    The last one reminds me Rembrandt drawings. But honestly i prefere sketches. This is not a critique, but i'm always impressed how possible it is to make so much with so little.

    To ryanoir – drawing people around is incredible hard, but it is valuable lesson. You work on line, memory and feeling movement in your body.

    psage: Thanks! I appreciate the encouragement you've given me throughout this little journey!
    Grzessnik: Thanks for the kind words! I wouldn't say I'm bored.. if I find myself getting bored I don't draw, so I always have ways to keep things interesting... and me drawing! I work best off the cuff, which is why my shorter poses have life to them... It's longer poses that require real planning and structure to pull off effectively. (didn't get a real good foundation in that at school unfortunately ) I think the reilly method has some great procedural steps and I'm getting a few books that might help... I'd also like to go to some workshops.
    devin platts: Awesome stuff man! Thanks for dropping in!

    Hell, nice sketches, man! Liked flicking through your sketchbook, seeing how you've evolved as an artist, and hell, its a great thing to see - especially how sincerely great you've managed to get at sketching since the first few pages. Honestly, its downright inspiring.

    Love the poses that you're managing to draw, a nice blend of variety and repitition without monotony to keep it all interesting.

    You feel too comfortable? Please, make few ink drawing and change your way of thinking about line and shade. It should be very liberating and will force you to explore new grounds
    BTW i like the last one too.

    Grzessnik: Thanks! I read your post too late, I was set on doing something different for this model session but I decided on nupastel instead! You're right! I will do some inks, they really force you to make decisions.

    Nupastel are SO FUN! This was my first night using them, so I'm getting used to how messy they are. They are really soft on the newsprint, but not so soft that they fall easily from the paper. You can push them around by smudging, or you can build up the colors layer upon layer. DEFINITELY worth it, even thought they are expensive!
