    MattGamer - thanks for ur post. haha ive never gotten such a good explenation for 30 sec. gesture poses - and me thinking that they weren't so important. i do them sometimes, but i usually get bummed out because they look pretty bad. but i think i'll do some every day, thankyou.
    these drawings are just a bit of a warmup for the day, im trying to be more loose like u mentioned matt....they mite still seem stiff, but i was conciously thinking about being more fluid.

    Stylo - thanks Stylo means alot

    Well hello there, Marvin!

    Seeing you post so often is inspiring. Keep it up, lots of practice! I have little concrit to offer because I'm not so good at spotting flaws yet but I hope encouragement helps as well.

    Umbravita - haha gotta love the martian yes your encouragement and comments are definately helpful, they go a long way. it wants me to keep going even though sometimes i can be so unmotivated. thanks man - hopefully i can motivate you aswell

    Providenc - thanks mate'

    got some photoshop sketches i did today. im not very confident with digital - a blank canvas always puts me off. but i tried just doing some figure based stuff on the computer, hopefully i'll be just as proficiant digitally as traditionally (in terms of control over lines, etc.)

    (all studies from loomis)

    right lets ave a look..
    yep youre definitely getting it.
    i wish i could do those sort of sketchy bridgeman style lines.
    doing your homework is really helping though, loosening up, itll pay dividends.
    big progress.

    that is a sweet ass too. he must work out...

    Thanks for checking out my section TronRobot. I like what I am seeing from your section as it looks like you are pretty serious about your figure work and are drawing major influences from some of the old masters! I like that you have this mixture of realism/cartoon style going on. I say just keep at and do some drawings of some people in public in the mix along with a few action scene/compositions. Not much else I can see keep pushing yourself as I see it paying off!

    As for my sketchbook I have been doing more black and white in it for some reason. Hey here are some color illustration and characters of mine here...

    Hipalien - thanks for your crits man. yeah i think that's a good idea, id definately like to draw people from life, and have my drawings more in "context" in scenes, etc. (action scenes). i might just do that :p im glad you like my SB.
    And nice character designs too! i see you do use colour, good stuff man. i really like how you have so much variety in your sketchbook pages, i'm definately learning a thing or two from looking at your drawings.

    Heres some stuff from today, i couldn't get motivated, really wasn't feeling it today, but i think i'm a bit more comfortable in Photoshop, so that's good.
    i'll try do some more digital studies tonight....hold tight.
    ( the geometric looking-character is old, i thought id share it tho, its from a program called 'alchemy')
    enjoy

    - -kinda happy bout the last image on photoshop.
    crits please? =)

    These horrible looking gestures are just a start to the day. i figured id only do 5 pages so you dont get bored looking at them, i can't seem to grasp the 30 sec poses...but hey. it wasnt meant to be easy, ill get it one day.
    i got a question for everyone, if you wish to answer. - - im wondering what would be the fastest way to improve, more like, the smartest way to utilize my time, whether that would be full on anatomy studies, face studies, etc. or more "finals" in photoshop, etc. ive got my money on doing studies, maybe copying some masters art, too. but id like to hear what you guys think. it would help tonnes, thankyou

    - im going to university in about a week or 2, and i need to use my time more efficiently.

    thanks in advance ! lata....

    nice 30 second poses, some of them certainly do grasp the pose - so thats probably a good sign right there - keep it up.

    Sooo here I am.

    A few things to say:

    - Great style on the faces in the first post.

    - Your rendering is very weak

    BUT thats not a problem at all. I had the same. I has been able to solve it, you 'll be able to do so too =)

    Just render, render, render, render. With a pencil. Forget PS and digital stufff for that until your pencil is ok, because the blending would get you headache.

    A good rendering is done with a good knowledge of light and shadows ->
    -Dynamic light and shade by hogarth
    -drawing light and shade by giovanni civardi

    These two helped me out alot. And try too take a look at comic books too. The show you how its done too. Look at Frazetta's work.
    And buy the monstruo book by Carlos Huante -> a master in rendering
    YOu can look up his homepage in google too.

    Whenever you look at such stuff, ask yourself "how", do not just copy it. Copy the way how you think the rendering is done and try to understand it.

    You can also watch videos how its done - hard to finde, but there are a few good oes out there.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcRCjqQoJmw - t. lee sketching and rendering
    plus search for the sketch theatre videos

    But you'll get through that. People with solid linework always did =)
    For inspiration look up Francisco Herrera and Humberto Ramos. Their linework is similar to yours.

    Hope I could motivate you a little. =)

    cheers, Acki
