    jdem: Thanks, man!

    Topcross: Thanks!

    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:

    http://www.mattkohr.com/storage/ca/m...ceDrills07.jpg

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
