    I see you've studies quite a bit, great! I particularly see how solid your nose anatomy is.
    I really like looks at your portraits/heads. Your figures seem to lack proportions though, or flow.
    Try working on that more?

    BlackDelphin: I have noticed that my figures lack flow, quite frankly I'm really frustrated by it. If you have any suggestions as to how I can fix that, I'd be very grateful.

    Lots of sweet stuff happened on previous page, You're doing kickass work! You made great progress. Don't be harsh for yourself, I think your figures aren't stiff - more flow will come with time; to improve this I suggest searching for ref for specific pose or using yourself as a model - it's the best because you exactly know what you want. It's a little fuss to ask someone to take photo for bigger work, for sketches just glance at mirror to figure ur pose out : )

    hu-ha: Thanks for your kind words. Quite honestly I'm really not happy with my art at all right now, so thank you for the encouragement.

    Nice sketchbook! You have a great style, kinda whimsical. I especially like the way you draw faces.

    As for giving you images more flow. Try to relax a bit and (I'm not sure if I can get this across clearly but I'll try) try to 'follow through' your lines and make each shape flow into the other. Also try to think of the figure as a whole. Draw loosley at first and then take a step back, look at it and try to identify where you can lead one line into another. Also pay attention to the negative shapes created. Hope that makes sense!

    What you were doing with the gesture drawings on the pale green background was going in the right direction.

    I have issues with this myself so maybe someone more experienced can offer a more balanced opinion than mine.

    Girl, did you lick a funny stamp?

    Seriously though, I already see an improvement in those latest figures. Obviously you took SpaceJelly's advice well. Except in dude #1, his legs have a sort of egyptian hieroglyphic quality where they look like they're kind of on the same plane and facing the same direction. You say it was from ref, though, so I could just be totally talking out my ass.

    I love this new disturbing turn your work is taking, too.

    Aaaaauughg I love those creepy mutated soldiers like you don't even know. Are they effected by a fungi? It reminds me of those zombie ants that get their brains hijacked in a similar way. Always thought it was a good concept to put on human zombies.

    Anyways, your figures are looking good, as are your pencils in general! I particularly like when you mess about with line depth like in the middle figure, where the lines are emphasised around his shoulders, but kept lighter under the arms and what not. Its a good technique and would definitely be good to use more often.
    No crits, yo. You're already taking a lot of new things into play and learning fast. It is KIND OF SCARY how fast you take things on board sometimes, but don't you dare stop progressing. ;D
    Keep up the good work, mate!

    ooooh, I like this latest lot of figures. Those creepy soldiers look ace. Are we going to see these coloured? >hint hint<

    I like the top lot of guys too, you've done well with the rythm aspect and they have a good 'weight' to them. Your work is scary good

    littlebones: I'm more concerned with the fact that I borked the Latin, it should be potentatus, not potentum. Derp. And you're right about his feet, I think it was a "oh shit I'm running out of space on the page I'll just fudge it" sort of situation.

    Naidy: Haha, those fungus-zombie ants freak me out so bad. And thanks! I'm glad you think I'm progressing, 'cause I always feel like I'm going nowhere.

    Spacejelly: Maybe not those specific drawings, but those poor unfortunates will be back again, I think.

    Soapy: Well thanks! ;D

    What's happening in the top half is the sails of the ship are merging with the clouds. (I was trying to convey that the ship is semi-imaginary, dreamed up by the boy down at the bottom.)

    Thanks for letting me know! I'll see about making it clearer tomorrow.

    SpaceJelly: Thank you! That's actually a small part of a much larger drawing, I'm posting some bigger views of it today.
    hu-ha: I think he fell out of his roost in the eaves of a shop near my work. They shop clerks there scooped him up up with broom and put him in a raised flowerbed so he'd be safe until he felt like flying home.

    Unfortunately I haven't got much to post because I was quite ill from Wednesday to yesterday (third time this summer what the hell) so I didn't do much drawing. I'll try to get back into the swing of things tomorrow.

    I really like the colours on your latest digital painting you have going on!

    One thing I'd recommend you watch out on is your noses--I realize that you like drawing things in a highly stylized way, and that's cool, but I think it would do you some good to go back and study the realistic structure of noses on a face to make sure you haven't distorted yours to the point where they look broken or they're lacking all the basic structure of a nose. When I look at your faces I get the impression that you're drawing your idea of a nose rather than drawing one with knowledge and observation behind it to make it more believable.

    Amarok: You're right, I haven't actually studied noses for a while, though they're one of my favourite features to draw.

    ---

    So I did a couple of self portraits focusing on the nose (wearing sunglasses so I wouldn't be tempted to spend forever on the eyes :9)

    That big drawing really is amazing. I can't wait to see it done. What do you have it taped to?
    I also really like your nose studies. I love noses (especially unusual ones) but I can't seem to get the hang of them despite study, practice & whatnot. I suppose it'll take a bit more work to get there.
    I like your use of cool and warm colours at the moment. It adds a really nice, sort of nostalgic feel to your work and goes well with your characters/people.

    Spacejelly: Blururur, so many compliments! Thanks a ton. I'm really glad you like my colours, I've been trying to improve on them lately. The big drawing is in fact taped to a door.

    Boring post?! That guy... with the rocky muscles... wow. I just love it. So gorgeous. It reminds me of... the very final boss of Final Fantasy 3 (or 6 whatevs), but not so videogame-y. I want it on my wall.

    Keep bringing it. Great job on the "flow" of your gestures, too.
