    Well, I am glad I am not the only one getting back into art and having to relearn everything. But this thread SB has made it ubundantly clear, you probably forgot more than I ever knew. This stuff is amazing! It is really coming along. Nice work!

    Wow, nice work man, studies are looking great. I especially like the work in post #14. Also, if your worried about your digitals looking too airbrushed, sometimes that can be from having the opacity set to low. To have a more painterly feel you could up the opacity in the later stages of a painting and experiment with different brushes.

    btw, nice landscape, do some canvases man!

    @Velocity Kendall: Thank you!

    @masterpug: Yeah, it's a challenge to deal with the idea that we could be so much better than what we are not if we had stuck with it. But better late than never Thanks for taking the time to look at my SB.

    @brentos8: Thanks for the tips, I will try it. As for the landscape, I will be getting some paints this paycheck.

    Here is another of the many drawings that I'm working on at the present. I won't have time to finish it this week as I have a lot of overtime, but hopefully by next week it'll be finished. I'm trying to get more photo studies in as I realized yesterday that it seems to help with my drawings from imagination quite a bit. When sketching in my sketchbook, things that I've worked on with the photos tend to crop up in my mind.

    This image is a much tougher because I've never painted dark skin before. The colors don't match the photo as much as I'd like, but I'm getting the general idea down. Even more, I have to do a better job at measuring. I'm usually happy with the just having my drawing look like the image, but I want it to be as close to perfect as possible.

    Here is a quick practice from imagination. I was mainly trying to work on the lighting on the face and getting my technique better. Still not satisfied with it, especially when I remove the black lines.

    The child in post 62 is very striking. I love his expression, heh. I've found that when drawing darker skin that dark purple for shadows helps it a lot, but that's just me. Otherwise I fall into a trap of just going from one value of a hue to another and it looks a bit flat.

    Constructive criticism is always welcome.

    Some great stuff on here mate. I don't think I can give any critique cause I'm nowhere near your skill level, so sorry for that. Very good stuff so far though, keep it up.

    Great work in here Bish0p. Come join us in CHOW and COW and the brand new IOW

    Go to the forums section and at the top are community activities. I highly recommend it. A LOT of my best current pieces are coming from participating there.

    And I like the painterly stuff. It is my own preference as well. A painting should look like a painting should it not?

    @Artfix: Thanks for checking out my sketchbook...I will definitely be looking into the CHOW contest.

    Update:

    I finally got around to buying a little mirror yesterday and did about a 1 hour self-portrait this morning.

    Thank you, akkibox!

    Here's a quick character concept that I started today. It's a Native American character in a post apocalyptic world that I came up with last week.

    I originally wanted to do an entire gang holding guns and axes, but I'll do that some time in the future. However, I will try and finish this tomorrow.

    get the brush as hard as possible on some of the edges on that imagination doodle. then remove the black lines, and also i think the contrast good do with being slightly more deeper.

    I hope to be the best i can be... nothing less

    Thanks, Tom.

    I worked on it a little this morning, but didn't get as far as I wanted to as I mainly focused on the upper torso and face. I also tried to work on the contrast and hard edges a little more. Not really sure how it's coming out now though.

    First off, I really admire your work because of the handle you have on the forms in all your figures. They turn properly; they look solid. It's what I'm currently working on... so my face is like this -> looking through your book.

    I do see some areas for crit though

    I think if you cut him off underneath the pecs, the pic works. Not trying to sound facetious here. But the pecs relate to the head OK. But they don't relate to those abs or abdomen. Then look sunken in, ... but when compared to the head, the chest looks massive.

    maybe redesign below the pecs a bit... move his feet back and it would straighten things up.

    I'm subscribing and giving you 5* because in general your work is exciting to my eyes. Thanks!

    Thanks, P sage and you are right. It was bugging me last night, and when I was looking at it from a distance this morning, I could see something was wrong with the area you mentioned. I should of sketched this one out a little more and used the mirror for the pose.

    Also, I don't really like the tilt of his head.

    I'll probably just start over on this one in the morning.

    Thanks for checking my sketchbook out

    Didn't really feel like drawing this morning, but I wanted to get something done before work.

    Here's a quick 30 - 40 min male reference

    Also, some leg studies and some concept characters from my sketchbook from the past few weeks.

    I figured out what was wrong with the pose when I went back to the sketch on the Native American character. The original image had the guy slouching, and when I drew it in photoshop, I drew him with his chest sticking out. He was also supposed to be holding a gun instead of an axe, but I wanted to do something real quick and I would have to really reference the guns.

    Still, I'm trying to do the image again, but I keep screwing up the pose, even when I trace over the original. I'm just gonna have to take a picture of the pose and draw it from there.

    What I have now is at the very bottom...without the axe. I still don't like the torso area and it's frustrating not being able to get a pose as simple as this right.

    Wow, the very first legs you did are awesome!
    The concept for the guy looks awesome in your pencil sketch, and I really hope it comes across well once you've finished painting him .

    @mrd33ds: Thanks again, man!

    Thanks for the paintover, psage. I actually considered that perspective, however, I wanted to make it as close to the original sketch as possible.

    Still, your perspective makes more sense and is more dynamic. I'll probably revisit that drawing in the future.

    Here are some drawings that I've been working on and off of recently, but I probably won't finish these particular versions (I've always been pretty bad at finishing my art which I know is a VERY bad thing). Since I might not finish them, I decided to go ahead and post them just to keep my sketchbook active.

    I've been working on the night club illustration for the past couple of weeks, but I feel like it's boring. I did the original sketch at work and I liked it, but the more I worked on it, the more it became boring and uninteresting. I do like the colors though and I'll do a similar scene in the future where the characters will hopefully be more natural.

    The boxing image is something I worked on last month (I think) and posted it in the critique section. I got a lot of good feedback, but one of the posters here (Keithv) did an amazing paintover in color and I've lost a little interest in coloring it since lol. I worked on it, but I just couldn't get the same effect he did, so I'm going to leave it in b&w for now.

    Damn, I really suck at landscapes, but I need to do more of these. I just wanted to do something quick and simple before work today. I also wanted to work with a limited palette and just work freely, without any planned ideas to help with my creativity not that there is any creativity about this haha. I am satisfied that I was able to capture the distance better though.

    Here are two self portraits done at work, about 30 min each. The first one was last week and the second was last night. The lighting in the house sucks and it's pretty dark, so I'm going to have to change locations to get different lighting.

    Apparently, the first one looks just like me and the second one not so much.

    RE: Apache character.

    Well, maybe just consider that there will always be an eye level somewhere, and the perspective will have to be shown somehow, or the drawing won't look right.

    Have a look at Loomis's "Successful Drawing"... in there he says that no drawing can be successful without considering perspective, and all drawings have an eye level.

    Just thought I'd give a little help there.
