    p sage: Thank you for taking the time to write all of that. I definitely have to do some more research on the edges idea. I've briefly looked over it, but haven't gone in depth with it yet, or applied it to my renderings. As for the Apache warrior, I've been working the pose sporadically, using the perspective techniques you suggested, as well as the new gesture technique I've recently learned about...still, I'm not satisfied with the results. I'll get it eventually though.

    prsnsweeney: Thanks for the advice on the statue. When I look at it every once and a while, I appreciate it a little more...but I can still see a lot of flaws and how it didn't match the idea in my head. I'll probably employ your suggestion on another still life this week. Also, I hated doing still life for the longest, but for some reason, I'm finding it to be more and more of an enjoyable experience.

    Here's a sketch (one of the many doodles that I do when I should be working) of the kitchen at my work...I didn't expect to take it as far as I did so I started losing it half way through when I got to the foreground. I also didn't measure everything properly.

    Also, another crappy self-portrait from this morning. The eyes look wonky and they are too far apart. The perspective is off as well. I'm not satisfied with the end result at all and I think the highlights are too much. I also tried using the soft brush a little bit more, but I feel like it has that airbrush feel to it now, which I don't like. Even more, I didn't finish the lips, or erase all of the pencil marks.

    For some reason, I've been having trouble with drawing eyes in general. I'm going to just do some more eye studies I think. I think the rest looks like me for the most part. I've always been able to draw myself and have it look like me, but for some reason I've just had a lot of trouble when it came time to paint (traditionally and now digitally)....but, that's probably because I didn't do enough.

    sigh, I'll get it one day.

    Here is some more work on the second goblin. Pretty sure I'm not going to keep the background colors, and the left foot is not correct in relation to the knee I think.

    I feel like your biggest weakness is color.
    Light and shadow usually not only differ in value but also in hue and saturation.
    Don't be afraid to mix in "weird" vivid colors like purple or straight-up grays, especially when it comes to skin.
    Skin is not just dull plastic. Veins, blood vessels, translucency etc. need to be readable in your painting or it won't look convincing.

    Thanks for the crit and I definitely agree.

    It's funny because I can see the variety in other artists work...but when it comes down to my own work, I become afraid to experiment with colors.

    I will be working on that.

    Ugh...imagination work still sucks and I'm getting frustrated. These are two quick sketches.

    Will go back to life studies tomorrow.

    The outside of my window....about an hour. Gotta really learn how to do tree leaves... among other things. Also, it was an overcast day and I didn't capture it as well as I would have liked.

    Great work, your studies look awesome! Still life and photo studies. I think you can push your imagination stuff further. Even though I wish I could get my imagination work half as good as you. Keep going. You'll become awesome!

    Damien: Thanks for dropping by...will try to spend more time on refining my imagination work when I do them.

    Vins: Thanks for the encouraging words. I just hate it when I can't put down exactly what I see in my mind.

    As for tips, unfortunately I have none at this point as I still have a lot to learn and this has been a very humbling experience for me. As such, I don't want to sound as if I have an ego by giving advice when I'm uncertain of so many things.

    However, I can recommend picking up books by James Gurney (Color and Light), Loomis (Figure Drawing for all it's Worth), and Bridgman if you haven't already.

    These are by far the best art books that I personally have ever come across to practice by.

    Here are two doodles from this morning. Just to work on color and what I've learned from Gurney's book so far (which is not much yet as many things were forgotten). I didn't use enough of the sky colors in other areas of the landscape.

    I will work on the creature some more though....the perspective on the right arm needs to be changed so that it goes back in space.

    CONtra: Thank you for stopping by!
    Vins_2011: Thank you and no problem
    MarkSampson: Thank you!
    ANtY93: Thank you. I would like to spend more time on something similar in the future.

    Here are some anatomy studies and sketches from observation and imagination this week. I tried to do a fruit still life in color pencil...been about 10 years since I've used them. The result was pretty crappy and it's kind of hard to tell what it is. The color of the orange didn't come out as well on the scanner either.

    The old man is from imagination and I wanted to take it further, but it didn't come out the way I wanted.

    Also, a face drawing for the day. Wanted to spend more time on it, but I don't like the direction it's going so I'm calling it quits. Definitely need to do more studies as I was kind of winging a lot of it...but I do like some parts better than others.

    psage: Thanks again, man

    MarcSampson: Well, we will have to agree to disagree then Also, thanks for the critique. I'm not too certain on what you mean about not mixing on the image...do you mean don't blend as much and use more saturated colors on skin in general?


    Here are a couple of sketches and landscape thumbnails (I'm so uncreative) from this week so far. With my faces, one of the most glaring issues I'm having is with the eyes. For some reason, they just don't fit on the faces. I''ll have to keep working on it.

    Just add a new layer and experiment. You're only going to learn by making mistakes - best get them out of the way early.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.
