    Oh wow. I love how dramatic and blocky your work is.

    This is probably a silly question, but whats your process when you're sketching from TV shows? I usually do something similar when I'm watching TV, but nowhere near the level of completion you do (I have loads of fuzzy geature drawings and sketchings that I work on until I hit another interesting scene)

    Hi-

    I watch the movies on my computer and I screen-cap the frames that I want to sketch from. Each of the sketches I posted above is about three or four hours' work.

    Giacomo, you really have some fun stuff posted here. Love the idea of doing studies from movie/tv show scenes. I might have to give that a try myself. Maybe it will help with the stiffness of my drawings.
    Looking for a mentor
    If you have a moment I would love any tips or critiques that might help me improve my work.

    My sketchbook (please leave a critique)

    PS. Your stuff looks great too!

    These sketches from the film are delightful. I like how you can really get a sense of the planes on their bodies with the hatching.
