Kiwi: Good advice! The way i usually use is find the best work i can and try to figure out what makes it rock and do that...the books are good but youre rigt that relying on them completely might not be the best idea. and ive found a local group so Im going to see about some night sessions... should be fun!
Snake: have a go at some megarchitecture if you have time, id love to see what you come up with. i was thinking of doing one of a gibralter bridge made of exotic carbon nanomaterials and spide silk, and encrusted with hotels and other architecture...
Micheivouslittleelf: Thanks dude! I love your sjetchbook, very moebius! killer stuff, bookmarked..
those studies aren't bad. but copying from photos is not very good for regular practice, as they're flat. once you go to life drawing, wow - you'll see how 3D people really are. it makes all my drawings look awfully flat. so yeah, go see some naked people and start staring. ;-)
join to me to make beautiful drawings.
youre so right man; copying from pictures is really hard compared to drawing from 3d; i thought that was just me... drawings from images are so flat by comparison arnt they?
thanks! ps no offense about saying your pics were disturbing, disturbing is good!
Lady Knowles: thankyou vey much indeed! hows it going your end? your pic of the punk grrl is killer, do more!
more sktche + a man placates his fantastically ugly girlfriend at drunk o'clock
+ some 3d pen sketchs, with Jon Bowen at Jones&Bowen, which i think i can show.. jon is a hypertalented guy, currently managing the design for a several company's whole product ranges, and working with him really taugt me to explore as many form or material finish alternatives as time allows, and ive pretty much adopted his method... for prodcut design anyway this is about 1/5th of the range we looked at intially for this particular piece.. 3ds and photoshop are so helpful in mocking up lots of texutre and colour alternativers quite quickly.

Ryan: he he Ill try! thanks dude. I was wondering abuot integration too... any suggestons or thoughts?
Raminafshari: thank you sir. its definitely an aim for the year, i will try to do as many studies as i can. theres so much to learn, its daunting, but fun
Naidy: thankyou very much theres so many different mediums (media?) to try, and not enough hours arnt there! i love your paint sketches, theyre beautiful
Jasper: your work is fantastic man, thankyou for having a look! trippy is key, most of these are just doodles, but i like imagining a story behind them; a giant religious aparition appears over Mount Fuji and F22s are scrambled to intercept. Its all ripping off Neon Genesis of course, boy i love that show.
Here are some more.. things.. playing around with an old scene in 3ds...

Jeff: Thanks man. youve got a good thing going on over there! looking forward to more, the graphite gestures are just plain brilliant
Dope: thats an easy trick, get your smudge tool (in photoshop) make it quite large, give it a fuzzy edge but 100% opacity and drag things around. you can get lots of neat effects, try it out!
comfort zone is a killer, i have to look on CAO and get theshit scared out of me by the excellence, that tends to give me a kick up the bum to try new things
