    Still working on anathomy and the last stylization. Nothing to show from them yet.
    Here are some quick exercises I did today - the poses were 5 mins long. And the other is the flour sack exercise (look up in the net if you don't know)

    Thanks for the comment! Great work here, I think your drawings have a good sense of structure. The hands look great, really clean style.

    So, here are today's entries -first, some quick gestures, done in 5 mins each.
    Next is my second sheet of anatomy studies, dedicated to the arm. One more arm and finishing touches to go.
    The last is my next (and last from this project, stylization). On some of the future posts I will post a link to the project presentation in behance.net

    Comments and critiques are welcome.

    Thanks for the comment you left on my thread. Your life drawing seems very dynamic, I love the flow of the lines but it seems like they could be cleaner.

    tron Thanks for stopping by. More of the gooood stuff to come
    Trisquel I'm not too pleased with my linework right now also, that's why I am reading "Force" by Michael Mattesi, and trying to apply it in my daily drawing. Tomorrow I start university again, so today might try some more fun, relaxed stuff. If it is any good I'll post it. I'll try some concept art characters.

    I just got to know about the week challenges here and took a quick try at last week's character of the week. It's very sketchy, but I'm not used to imaginative work yet, and making characters is a challenge to me. Of course this is the thing I want to do eventually, so I'm gonna participate in the weekly events from now on.
    Next on - another part of my anatomy sheets ready - one more arm for this sheet.
    Last are some analysis about the pelvis' structure and outer forms. I started with a photo ref, and tried to analyze the structure of the pelvis and then make a constructive drawing of it.

    Very precise anatomy studies, seems like you're making the most of line quality and shading too. Just remember to try sketch the thing you've studied from your head to reinforce what you've learned. The muscle stylization pic looks great too, good proportions and forms. Just one nitpick, I think the triceps should have a bounce lighting when the side of the torso and the chest muscle have it too. On the pirate sketches, I like how effective the lighting looks with just a few tones used. I don't miss a single one in between. Nice flour sacks and gestures too! Keep them coming!

    Some of this week's stuff. I had drawing class (finally) The assignment was dressed figure, 100x70cm, and the goal was to learn how fabric reacts to the position of the volumes and joints, the other goal was to achieve the sense of material of different fabrics, including skin.

    Some attempts at this week's CHOW. ( I haven't seen the final pieces submitted yet, dying to see interpretation of the theme)

    Hand study, I did during the drawing class in order to familiarize myself with the model's hand.

    The last ones are two minute sketches from frames of the "300" movie. This movie is made really professionally when it comes to camera and GFX. Too bad it isn't as good a plot and actor play.

    Thnaks for the advice, and good luck doing more imagination work! I think you might want to do some skeleton studies, it helps to know the body's framework rather than just its features.

    appreciate your efforts you are on the right track!
    May be you already know all of the following
    but i would recommend, firstly understand the skeletal structure,
    understand the proportional rations more. then to study head,arms,legs etc parts,
    individually & then bring them together. Like the woman you have life drawn is
    cool but it has some basic flaws or proportions issues and
    when you are drawing from reference draw what you see more.

    Finally I have the time to leave a comment here. The new stuff is great (especially the hands). As a viewer I don´t like the face of the old woman in your new drawing. Seems "stiff" and odd to me.

    Thank you, both. Yeah, she seems like chinface... Just because I focused my energy on the body. Maybe I should blend it with the rug, so that it is somewhat ambiguous, and falls back with aerial perspective.

    These style variations/color values studies are very useful. Such an important part of design. Do more os such on cylinders/different shapes if you get time.
    b/w just wondering how much do you give to your anatomy sketches/studies from book?

    If you mean time - I suppose, not too much. Maybe an hour or two a week, or so. The thing is the curriculum and the anatomy assignment is really screwed up around here. Instead of doing a lot of small sketches in orded to memorize the patterns, they make us do these huge ass one time studies (refer to the first page to see one finished), which take time, and have doubtful educational value, because you don't focus on anatomy, you focus on execution. I know about bone structure, different types of joints, the main muscle groups. The main place that this knowledge seems to not suffice is when I'm quick sketching. I suppose that must change through practice.

    Hey Alex thanks for your comments. You have some great updates and I really liked all the different expressions you got with the flour sack study. I also like your stylised man and the character with the top hat. This last graphic design study in values looks very interesting is it done with pen or on the computer. No crits just more encouragement to keep drawing.

    Great work here, man. Keep it up. The woman on the rock painting is my favorite.

    I'm pretty sure its already been said, but I have to agree, integrating the graphic design work with the illustration is great. Looking forward to seeing more from you.

    Some works from last week.
    Some sketches on this week's CHOW.
    A quick portrait of a friend of mine - 30 mins, charcoal
    Some 5 min sketches from reference
    This weeks painting class result - not too pleased with it... Anathomy problems, overall technical difficulties it my gesso, and my underpainting, which generally slowed me down. And on top of that, this is my first full body painting. Done in oils on canvas 80x60cm.
    And last a poster I am working on for a competition held locally. The theme is Zen.

    Things from last days
    Mainly some more attempts at characters, and a blueprint for a model I'm working on now, studying Maya, and the finished version of my poster, which entered a competition

    Good anatomy studies man. I'd be careful with your doodles. THey seem to be all over the place and don't dwell on a specific idea. Keep observing things you love and ideas concepts and ideas that interests you. That helps a ton. Good luck with Maya. Hit me up if you have any questions. I might not know the answer but I can stear you in the right direction.
