    Heh, yeah, people often have trouble with one sex or the other - I have most of my trouble with men. Do consider giving them a try, you can't get better if you don't push your boundaries after all. I found that doing all those gestures really helped me get to a competent level with the female form - they were fast and I learned surprisingly quickly from them as well.

    As for subtle rendering, I'm not sure I can be much help but I'll advise what I can. Assuming you work from reference here - do you unfocus your eyes when looking at the subject? It makes the colours much clearer, without being hampered by small lines or details. I also found a trick where if I cut a square out of a bit of paper and held it up to various parts, seeing the colour isolated in the paper really helped me "figure out" what colour it actually was (at least, compared to white ) because in the context of the other colours it was confusing. I'd find out that the colour was actually lighter or darker than I thought, and that helped me nail it down. Though, if you're doing pencil work that would probably be more effective for black/white references - maybe try working from desaturated photos before you try working from colour? I've seen that advice here before.

    angie101 - i should have rephrazed, i sorta meant realistic lips. i can draw them cartoony to an extent... yeah true, women need to be curvy, just gotta be careful of the lines im putting down. thanks for your post

    Umbravita - yeah man. those damn women :p i tried drawing some today. yeah gestures is great to loosen up and stuff. im glad its working well for ya. yeah ive been working from reference, i never unfocus my eyes, but now im going to try doing that =) thanks mate. ive also heard of the cut out thing too, i used to do that sometimes with figure drawing. yeah i shoud try something more desaturated......good advice man cheers!


    providenc - lol haha, yeah it suffers

    These are some tremendously fun shapes. You get a lot of motion out of your forms. Are you familiar with Claire Wendling? She is doing simmilar stuff with her shapes, and is a real master at capturing weight. I bet you would be a big fan.

    Great lifework on this last bunch, you cleary know your weaknesses and i'd suggest doing some focused studies, it will help your figures so much more

    otherwise, keep working, i'm drawing on an almost daily basis, or doing something else art related, and my life suffers as well..

    its all a sacrifice though right?

    Great sketches of the ladies! I hope you do more. I love the one with the long hair and fringe, peering from underneath it - my only crit with her is that her breasts look rather unnatural. Also, be careful of the hips and which direction they point as well.

    The one underneath her is stunning and beautiful. I know I sound like a broken record by now but it's worth saying again - your drawings have such character!

    Sharp lines and faces work well for stern characters (works very well with the second-to-last picture there), but with other female characters (especially younger ones) a softer, rounder approach is often optimal. Women have softer features than men.

    Great progress tron! Your style is still there, but there's something more fluid about your drawings that I'm digging.

    Are you a student? Think i asked you this before but i don't remember

    Haha, thanks. I don't actually know that much, I'm usually at a loss for crits because of my inexperience but I'm really glad that what I say seems to help!

    I was thinking the style of train seat looked familiar (I've never been on a train overseas so I can't say if they're exactly like that in other western countries) and I looked at your location and went, "Holy shit, another Aussie!" I'm a bit further north - Sydney - but it's good to see another Aussie around.

    Those environmental sketches are great. You've really put detail into them, I can see that, especially those rocks. They must be such a pain to detail and render if you don't have the patience. Your rendering has really gotten better.

    The pierced woman's face - *much* better. You've gotten the soft jawline down very well as well as the eyes. The lips are looking much better too!

    In my opinion, your lines are espressive. It's not only about beauty, but I think that you can espress "much" through your drawings. keep on!!

    Still liking your faces, both the more realistic and the more abstract. Hope to see more full bodied pictures soon too.
    No crits I'm afraid, just keep on showing us what you're capable of.

    Thanks for your comment, alas I have to say what an AWEFUL ... lot of great drawings you got here, I like the edgy lineage. Looking at the first two or so pages I was like 'Not bad for something graffiti scene." but looking on I realised (for me) it goes beyond that. Although I am struggeling lable it in my book - which is a good thing.
    Have a look at my SketchbookThanks!

    jamtob2 - thanks man really means alot. yeah definately alot of influence from graffiti....im glad u mentioned it goes beyond that...im happy i like graffiti alot, but i don't want to be crippled by it if u know wat i mean. but i do like to gather different influences....i think i need to do more of that.

    - not much today guys, i felt that i needed a short break from art (mostly for 1 day or 2)....so i wen't out with the boys instead etc. sometimes it can get owerwelming yno? with other life things getting in the way, some times u just wanna draw and not do anything else, and then you've got to realise that its just impossible, other things need to be attented to aswell. anyway, expect some good updates soon i hope.

    that last one is particularly interesting.
    maybe try your style on new things; draw a car or a tree or a particle collider, whatever seems interesting. itll hurt at first but be a big help in the long run.
