jdem: Thanks, man!
Black Spot: Thank you and you are right of course. Still, I was trying to achieve something along the lines of what Matt Kohr does with his studies:
So, not only am I trying to learn the facial features, but I'm also trying to work with simplicity as well and still have a sketch look good (which I failed at).
bobtail: I still feel like I'm not putting in enough...especially on bad days. Thank you for stopping by!
Sean McClain: Thanks, man! You are right and I have been slowly doing some...I just have none worth posting and quite a few of them are just thumbnails from imagination.
1) Some head studies and random sketches. Sorry for the quality,
2) A still life that didn't come out as well as I would have liked.
3) Finally got around to finishing the statue still life.
Ohh I know that spoon it's hatcoe, anyway where's ya beard mate?
You're doin so well here, don't have any crits sry.. anyway I enjoyed the new stuff especially the last one.
If anybody knows or have the contact stuff to the most wonderfull singer in the known universe please give her this... plxOr
Baconstrap: Haha really? That's funny about the spoon. Regarding the beard (if you're talking about mine), I've been feeling too scruffy with it, so I'm trying to for a cleaner look these days....thanks for stopping by again, man.
Just had a two week vacation, so I decided to spend the majority of it working from life and mainly in traditional mediums like charcoal, pastels, and oils.
Most of it was utter crap that I either threw away, or in the case of the oil paints, wiped the paint off and painted over it, but these were the somewhat decent ones that I decided to keep.
Also, the last one is digital.
Critiques would be appreciated. I tried to get messy with the charcoal, but I started getting to a point where I was afraid to take them further as I didn't want to mess up what I had....which I know is a mistake. But, I'll continue practicing with them.

Thanks for checking out my sketchbook again. As always nice work here. Maybe a slight critic, on the second one off your last post, the outline around the fruit kinda works against your values when defining the shape. Worked better on the skulls, I think the ones on the fruit are a bit to harsh. On the vase, the line fades where the value is lighter while on the fruit the weight remains the same, probably would have worked better if you did it like that on the fruit aswell.
Thanks for the crit, Topcross! I'm just happy that you could tell what the objects in the image were haha. Seriously though, I'll keep that in mind as I'm also trying to figure out when to use the lines and when not to as I'm trying to think about edges as well instead of just using lines for everything like I used to. I'll also have to spend a little more time on future drawings as I kind of gave up on it and I didn't put too much effort on the fruit...thanks again, man.Thanks for checking out my sketchbook again.

Edit: I know the issue lies with both fruits, but thinking back on it, I was trying to figure out how to separate the fruit from the vase...I'll also have to try that out again.

You need to take the trad stuff further. There are too many lines remaining which doesn't actually happen in nature. Getting that line made just from change of tones is tough with charcoal, but well worth it.
Thanks, BlackSpot and WRappii.
Time for an update.
I just finished this troll from Warcraft and got some good feedback from the critique section, but I found it difficult to correct the image and the more I worked on it, the muddier it looked. So, I'm calling it done and I will do another one.
Hey p sage, thanks for stopping by...been a while. How ya been, man?
Here's a quick self portrait and some quick studies.

Some sketches from the past couple of weeks and a study from this morning
Studies for this morning.
Wow.. love the figures in your most recent post. Beautiful gesture and pulling forms..
You've got some great work here.
However, your still lifes seem a little off.. I think it's partly because of the lack of texture (and thus, the plastic digital feel sets in), and partly because of white highlights. Light is colored, remember.
Really nice sketchbook, I love the last photostudies.
JesseM: Thanks for the crit!
Some sketches from life and imagination and another photo study
A quick photo study and some imagined faces
I really like your stuff..............keep up the good work!
-=Keep Your Style RUDE!!!!=-
Here's a still life from today.
An anatomy study and some imagination work
Great paintings, the quality of the edges is really striking! And the last painting of the guy has great movement.
Here a couple of life drawings and a digital still life using a new toy that I recently purchased.
Pretty great work! I like your work from life a lot.
your skill and dedication continue to be an inspiration. outstanding work!
Love the updates. That last still life is great and the photo studies aren't bad either. Life drawing is looking excellent.
great work man, especially love the still life paintings .

jNeumann: Thank you!
WRappiii: Thanks again for stopping by WRappiii!
Heyriel: Thanks, Heyriel! I like that one too...I'll eventually do another one and hopefully it will come out better.
Black Spot: Thanks again, Black Spot! Wish I could go more often, but for some reason, it seems like I always end up going once every other week.
p sage: Thanks, p sage!
will123will: Thanks, man!
Update of a photo study and some figures from imagination:

Looks like you're over thinking the muscles a bit. I get to go life drawing when I can, which isn't as often as I'd like, sometimes 3 weeks on a trot and then nothing for 6 months. I found that when you realise you're there to learn and not impress people is when the good stuff starts coming. My last one, I arrived with nothing with me so had to use the shit stuff laid out, made a total mess and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
really great studies! so real..
love it that u do self portrait in such a high level! it is so hard looking at u'rself
