    Rubix- Thanks for your feedback! And yes, I should be getting back to studies instead of just mindless doodling around

    Rellis- Thank you for the tip. I've actually googled the title of the book you've given me but the only result that came up was "Design and invention" by Michael Hampton. Perhaps that was what you were talking about? I'll try to check it out.

    Right, onto the bunch of crap pilling on my desktop...

    Hi, Wow...loving all your work...your output is pretty amazing (especially compared to mine).

    Went through all three pages...I'm impressed by the variety in your work.

    It's great to see you doing life drawing and anatomy studies...IMO that is so important...it will really help your characters. Even when you're doing creatures and aliens. So keep POUNDING away at those kinds of studies.

    Love the astronaut and the recent image your now using as your avatar.

    Ciao fer now

    you need to do some finished pieces if you haven't already

    take as much care and time as you can,

    maybe also do one personally meaningful piece on the side.

    You'll feel great afterwards

    Nice sketchbook btw, good luck with progression!

    Jephyr X- Yeah, studies are sooo damn important... I've spend most of my holidays just pounding on studies and I noticed a huge leap on my skills.

    Samthemule- You got me there, most of the stuff I do are really quick sketches because I love the life they have in them, and I'm mostly unable to focus on the same piece for days. I do have some more polished stuff, but hey, this is a sketchbook after all

    Ven S- Yup, a Tron sketch! I'm a sucker for the streamlined visual

    now dumping some more (lots of) stuff.

    Curses! Uncharted 3 has taken me into its grasp for the last two days and I'm still getting rid of all the sand in my living room
    So I didn't produce that much... Just a quick monster-ish sketch and messing about with a photo plate.

    Between wasting hours on end with uncharted 3 and running about in pre-prod for my movie, drawing has taken some sort of a back seat lately. Must fix that ASAP.

    going back to environments and trying to apply Robh Ruppel's technique of using tons of photos. Still got some issues on correct perspective placement (more like putting things in the correct perspective using the free transform tools), but with a bit more work I am confident I'll be able to pull it off

    In museum mode now! I've found out that some museums near my house have quite a large collection of plaster casts, so the last few afternoons were spent there just doing quick studies. I might have to bring my sleeping bag with me next time, there are so many awesome casts to study from and yet so little time.

    great stuff . I'd like to see a clearer definition of light and shadow. Maybe some of the reflected light is a tad too light, feels like it. This article is really helpful, and personal life observations of these: http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/20...part-1_15.html

    Wrulf- Thanks for dropping by! I'm still struggling on make more crisp and less muddy colors on my pics. As for the James Gurney tip, I already had read it, great advice as usual but it takes some time to sink it in and use the info the best I can.


    So last friday I picked up a few promarkers to sketch with and block quick values. I love those things, awesome to paint with but damn they dry up fast (and they aren't refillable to boot). My mid-range value is almost dead after about 10 sketches

    But yeah, forcing myself to think in big shapes and blocks of values and make strong contrasts between lights and darks.
