    Thanks, Derra! It doesn't feel like it right now, re the anatomy stuff but maybe I'm too close to it... More time is needed there for sure.

    Haha. Three, two, one, go!

    And since I'm on a new page, I'll post some stuff I did using blue ballpoint pen. I found it on a train recently and it's lovely and smooth so I thought I'd try filling a sketchbook with it. I'm also posting up some terrible graphite figure work so I can remind myself what not to do.

    liked the dragon illustration,
    critc
    the mountains have that big dark pencil outlining the shape. its too bold compare to the dragon lline, which is done with sharp and fine lead head. the distant things could be more soft and less dark.

    Damn! I knew i should have posted my latest dump in sections. More posts means I get to ten faster.

    Cheers about the guy and horse. I've been fighting with the perspective, along with pretty much everything else, on that picture for what seems like ages. I'm beginning to think that kind of illustration is beyond my grasp at the moment.

    Thanks Sony. Do you mean the pencil study of the Ciruelo dragon? If so, then yeah, I could probably have done a few things differently there. Though, it was all done with an H for the initial layout and 2B for the shading, so no fancy leads there.



    Latest dump. A lot of these are excrutiatingly bad but if I don't record them for future reference, I wont know where I've gone wrong. I also remembered I forgot to study feet and hands anatomy so I'm starting work on that too.

    Those are some really good studies, I think your line quality's improved since I looked at this sketchbook last.

    Constructive criticism is always welcome.

    Thanks guys!

    Caspia, really pleased to hear that about my line quality. I wonder if it's because I used pen for a bit. It made me stop worrying about getting lines perfect because I couldnt rub out my mistakes.



    A mixed bag again today. Starting another digital alien - the queen this time - in blue again. I'll try something warmer next time round, I promise.

    Also some more feet work and duck scribbles from when I was in town, and I finally finished the acrylic bridge painting from previous pages. I messed up a lot of things - the uprights are all pretty squinty and I made all the shadows the same colour so it looks a bit bland. The scanner didn't pick up on the red in the water or shadows which is kind of annoying but heyho, it was for the practice not the showing. Next one will be better.

    Some doodles of athletes from the Olympics, a few not so good hand anatomy studies and some more landscape sketches.

    I think I'm getting repetitve with them and it's time to change up a gear. Going to try working only in colour for those from now on, see where that takes me.

    Hi Candra!

    Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my sketchbook. The books you suggested look great so I'll definitely be picking them up!

    Looking through your work here has me really inspired and tells me that I have to get back into drawing from life. I used to do it all the time but since college (where everything was digital based) I haven't done much painting/traditional studies.

    Thanks again! and your stuff is brilliant! Cant wait to see more : )

    Thanks, Arula!

    It's really nice to hear my stuff has inspired you and I'll be keeping an eye out to see what you do in your sketchbook for sure.

    I'm working on a couple of illustrations at the moment so it might be a while before I've got anything to update. Thanks for the interest though, and the encouragement. It means a lot.

    First acrylic painting from life and an update on the digital alien queen study. Not sure where to go next with that because I think I made the dark shadows too dark.

    The acrylic painting also has a lot of flaws - too much yellow in the foreground green and I made the sky too dark and grey. I'm having real problems mixing true to life colours and will probably need lots more practice before things start looking like they're supposed to.

    Oh well, maybe I'll get there eventually...

    Thanks Psychobuddy!

    I just wish I was further along with everything than I am I guess. It's good to hear that my studies seem to be paying off though, so thanks again for that.

    I'm tired so no explanations of whats here today. Just more shitty stuff. This page is shaping up to be the worst of the bunch so far.

    What the fuck happened to my improvement curve?

    Man, you are getting scary-good. Very nice pencil landscapes and studies.
    Improvement curve? I've heard somewhere when that happens, when you reach that point, that mental jackpot, the next day you wake up to do your best work in weeks. Either way, from where I see it, it's very good work.

    Thanks Pete!

    Really glad you like my stuff, though it's not quite so good in my own eyes. Yeah, most of my landscapes are done from life (there's a lot of beautiful scenery around here that it would be a crime not to try and depict) except for the one you linked and also a painting of trees on page 4. Those were done from photos.

    Unfortunately, nothing to update today. Been tearing my hair out with that horse and guy illustration for about a week now so thats been taking all my time.

    I'll come back later...

    I'm working on about four different projects right now so studies are taking a back seat. Here's what I've got - it's not much but if I wait till they build up, I might not have anything to post for weeks.

    I am really digging your acrylics from life- it looks really good, especially considering that it is your first one! May I ask what colours you use and how you manage to drag all the supplies outside? It's what's holding me back at least.

    I love your feet studies and that you do so much from life- keep going!

    Thanks, LordLouis.

    I'm not sure I do nearly as much work from life as I should, certainly not where figure and anatomy work is concerned. Most of that is from books or reference photos because I cant get access to real people or life classes. Cest la vie.

    Yeah, I havent been outside with my paints either, just looked through my window at a bit of the garden for that last one and used reference photos for the others. I think if I was to go outside though, I'd probably use oils because acrylics dry too fast.

    As for colours. I don't use the colours I should. I know that by looking at work by people with a lot more experience who use colours like ultramarine, alazarin crimson, winsor green/veridian, cadmium yellow etc. I used to go crazy for fancy colours for my dragon paintings (you can see them here if you're really curious) so I have boxes filled with phthalo blue, hookers green, chromium green, olive green and lots of different reds and violets like napthol and perylene red and mars and red violet. They're okay for non-realistic expressive stuff, and some of them mix better than others but because I only have the one blue in a red shade, I'm pretty limited. But I don't want to waste them so I'm using them up on practice stuff and then I'll get some proper colours later on.

    Phew, sorry for the ramble. I hope it helps a little, and thanks again for stopping by and checking out my stuff.

    Yeah- got the same problem. Signed up for an expensive life drawing class earlier this year, turned out to be more of an "experiment with art" slashing around with colours as opposed to actually focussing on measuring, shape and accuracy (or speed).. and now I'm out of money! ;P

    Thanks for the amount of information! I have only very basic colours and try to mix as much- again, budget budget budget. Will check here some time soon again

    I havent been as busy as I should have been during CA's downtime but here's what I've got. Also got a few pages to scan from my sketchbook so I'll update those later when I get round to it.

    Been trying out oils for the first time and did a couple of small landscapes of the views around my place. The bigger one is 8x12 and the other two are 6x8 inches on canvas on board.

    Followed by a small update on the digital alien study I've been working on for what seems like forever. I recently got a new monitor and realised how bad the previous one was for displaying things correctly. Everything looks really dull and washed out now so I'm not sure about finishing the alien or moving on to something different. Ech.

    I finally got those sketchbook pages scanned. Some Loomis studies, a photo ref study of a stag and a not-very-good self portrait done in front of the mirror.

    Man, lots of great studies going on here, even just in this last page you can see your lines getting more confident, they're really helping!
    Also, the alien is coming along great, I love the restricted color scheme, it establishes mood right at the start of the process
    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks guys.

    It does feel like I'm starting to make some progress with the anatomy studies. Just wish there was more progress in other areas. But I guess that'll come with time and practice. Just gotta persevere.

    Here's another small landscape in oils done this morning from my workroom window.
