    Just a note- this is a self portrait I did in life drawing. The real version is almost four feet tall. Yikes.

    And as before, comments/critique absolutely welcome.

    Don't have a whole lot of stuff to show at this point- figured I'd post a portrait study I've been working on.

    I always get frustrated at this point of the process... not entirely sure why. Ah well. More practice!

    Quick figure study from a move still. I half heartedly adding in the values, which is why it looks jumbled and confusing. I've decided I'm gonna do a 100 of these. I really want to get better at drawing people.

    Great stuff here. I like the simplicity of everything. What is your aim? Are you going for more detailed stuff like realistic images, or rough, stylized paintings?

    Thanks! As for my aim, I'm not entirely sure yet. My goal right now is to move toward more concept related stuff, but whether that means more tightly rendered or stylized images I'm not sure. I'm just trying to get into the habit of doing a lot of studies from photos/life before I delve into stuff from my imagination, because honestly, I can't draw people, landscapes, etc. from memory for shit. It also doesn't help that I just started delving into digital stuff a few months ago, lol.

    Again though, thanks for the comments! I was afraid I'd never get any feedback, lol.

    Embarrassed at how bad this turned out. I spent way too long on it, got wrapped up in details that didn't matter and got generally fed up with it. I swear to god I touch a tablet and I can't do basic linework to save my life. All my lines get squiggly and hairy.

    Probably just an off day.

    Tried to draw a figure in perspective without a reference. My hands wrought terrible, terrible things, so I somehow turned it into this.

    It's edgy and hipster, lol. I wish I could contribute some sort of legitimate study today, but I've got work till midnight. Peace.

    Another photo study. Again, spent way too much time on this, but in my defense, I started it out all wrong by thinking too much and not having any fun. I switched to my normal gestural/messy look and things began to work out. Not at all perfect by any means, but progress nonetheless.

    Some of the things I've decided I want to focus on...

    -Line control
    -Line weight
    -Conveying form with stroke direction
    -Improve knowledge of the human form
    -Improve sketching speed, from block in to finished product

    Comments/critiques absolutely welcome.

    Been working on a horse study. Still really rough, but I plan on really refining this one as far as I can go. I'm sick of my paintings never leaving the block in stage. I just need to sort out the color and brush stroke issues.

    Critique as always, is welcome.

    Made a bunch of progress today. I've decided my goal with this is to just render the hell out of it- not so much because I like that look, but because I feel I need the technical practice. I need to be able to render things that look smooth and nice.

    I plan on putting a few more hours into this tomorrow and calling it good. There's a lot of stuff I need to touch up/change, but I feel it's lookin pretty solid so far.

    Really looking for comments and critiques on this one- begging rather.

    That horse study is MIND BLOWING. Like the composition is nice and the gradient is right and the creamy smooth progression of the form into shadow and just ugh. I want to be able to do stuff like that ;.; I also ADORE the uniformed portrait you posted earlier. Really wonderful stuff! I'm not much for giving crit (I suck at it). But I'd love to see more of your figure studies!

    Thanks! After I finish this horse study up I'll resume doing figure studies. I need so much practice, and my knowledge of anatomy is, well, lacking. I think that at this point I'm becoming a good copyist and that's it. I don't think I'm fully grasping the actual 'forms' I'm rendering. Ah well- more drawing. But again, for the compliments! I'm definitely gonna be a keeping an eye on your sketchbook thread.
