    ANty: Thanks for stopping by! I'm not going to lie, I got caught up in the videogame Skyrim and wasn't drawing as much.

    Elricslinger: Thank you for looking at mah sketchbook. I bought some plastic fruit a couple of months ago, but never got to drawing them. I'll spend more time on them in the future.

    I did work on a couple of things that I posted in the C+C section. I got a lot of good critiques on things that I didn't see before, so hopefully this will help me in my future stuff. Don't know when I'm going to get back to them as I worked on them for weeks and didn't like the results I was getting.

    And some sketches I did today at work. The quality of the scans are bad on the last two because that was done in my sketchbook with pencil (hard to scan), while the first one (a life drawing of someone I work with) was done on printer paper with a ball point pen (easy to scan).

    The other two are photo studies.

    Another Self-Portrait using a mirror. I really need to do more of these and spend more than an hour on it. I also need to get the proportions right as when I flip it, it looks goofy.

    I tried to really get the different colors in my face and I like some parts more than others.

    I want to do two more photo copies, then I will work on self portraits religiously.

    Here is a self portrait from this morning and a still life (crappy setup) done last night.....horrible scans again. I was only going to do a few things in the still life, but I really wanted to put the calendar in there as well some of the papers that were laying on the desk.

    I tried to take my time with these, but I was at work (had some down time) and I couldn't focus on them as much. I was satisfied with the self portrait, but someone pointed out some issues with it.

    So, I gotta work harder.

    Great stuff man. I love that rendered standing female figure in post #152; the muscular definition and the organic, natural pose are really nice. The only thing that seems off to me is the hand on her hip, the anatomy of which feels strange. It looks like the thumb may be too far up on the hand; it seems to almost be coming out of her wrist. Also, the painting of the bald guy in the same post is very nicely done, especially the hands, which have a wonderful sense of depth and volume - they really feel like they are advancing towards us in space. However, the sharp edge on the head flattens that part of the image and makes him feel kind of like a cardboard cut-out that has real arms attached to it in the front, if you know what I mean. Anyway, keep up the good work man!

    Thank you for the feedback, dierat. Yeah, unfortunately I never got around to finishing those images, still I just wanted to post them because I wasn't sure when I would get back to them. Besides the unfinished hand on the female, the legs were also bothering me, especially the left leg which looks awkward. I couldn't figure out what to do with it, so I found a good reference with a similar pose that I'm going to use for a new drawing of her.

    And you're definitely right about the bald man. When I posted that in the C+C forum, someone suggested I do a thin white line around him which might help put him more into the background. Haven't tried it yet, but hopefully I will get back to it.

    Trying to work on some still life for now though. See ya later

    Went to a 3 hour figure drawing class yesterday. I still can't grasp using charcoal, so I had switched to pencil throughout the session. I will keep working with charcoal though until I get it. Wish the class was longer and more than just one day as there aren't many figure drawing classes where I live...that is unless I go back to college.

    Also, a still Life. Couldn't really capture the knitted texture in the cloth.

    Whirly: Thank you for stopping by. I really did want to go darker with the shadows on the figure drawings, I just moved too slow. Hopefully with time and practice, I will become faster and more confident.

    Rustfveld: Thank you! I'm really digging your sb as well.

    A few more head studies before bed.

    Oh my gawd. Your killing me with these awesome studies!

    Only critique I can think of is to use more forceful lines and to push poses more. Force dynamics is a really great book to read for learning how to make everything super dynamic!

    bobmeatbag: I'm not sure what you mean by using more forceful lines....are you referring to the sketch of the monster, or just everything in general? Also, thank you for checking out my sketchbook!

    Hey dude!

    Amazing photo study, really. About the head studies, they're too soft for me, I'd like to see more hard brush in them but that's just my opinion
    And that glass, great rendering!

    Keep it up and I hope to see some imagination stuff soon :p

    Anty, thanks for stopping again. Will keep your feedback in mind next time I do similar head studies. Also, I'm going to be spending like 90% of my drawing time on observational studies from life and photos. I still rough out ideas I get for imagination work though and once I get to a better point with my art, I'll start doing more of it. Later!

    ezekrialase Thank you!

    Here are some leg studies and self portraits done at work today and yesterday whenever I had some down time. I had to work pretty quickly, so I'm not really happy with the portraits, but I just wanted to do different faces.

    Also, I'm darkened the scans some in photoshop so that they would show better. I should have figured this out sooner for my scans. Oh well ....actually, I think I may go back and darken all my scans.

    You can get charcoal pencils - they're a bit fragile and you need a knife to sharpen them, but I found them a happy compromise between pencil & charcoal. Saying that, charcoal is well worth it when you finally get it. You can always use chalk and a coloured background helps tons as it fills in for the mid tones.

    I've noticed on the last 2 still lives that neither have a very dark area. Maybe pushing the values a bit more will help.


    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.

    Thanks again, Black Spot. I've seen those types of pencils before, but for some reason just never picked them up. I was thinking about it though during my next trip to the art supply store.

    Also, I appreciate the feedback on the still life renderings. I will definitely look to push the darker areas in my next attempts.

    A quick photo study from today. Haven't really done any male figures in a while so I'm going to do some work on them as I'm not really comfortable with adding values to the torso. The abs tend to give me the most trouble. As for this study, I really don't like the technique, but it's a start.

    At least you've added some blue, but he's still a bit pink. Now put some form into the crotch area.

    Just really great job on the photo studies on the women and the newer items.You can tell you have gotten better just in the few pages I have seen.But awesome human studies in general I know I have to work on them more myself.

    I think the main problem with your values is that in color pieces you're just using white to lighten things and black to darken things. Light doesn't work like that, light usually has yellow or blue or some other color in it, and shadows are usually purple-ish or warm or cool depending on the situation. Study how light works and how the hues differ and your color work will get a lot more exciting to look at. More color studies from life, less from photos where things can be processed.

    BTW that painting of the orange and pear is an example of doing the right thing with light. Keep that up. Also that African woman's face is excellent.

    wow great study! Sorry about being unclear. Your figures and stuff are great but the poses and lines could be more pushed or forceful. Do you know about lines of action? if you do just ignore me cause I'm a noob but I you don't it's basically the line that the body or a section of a body that follows it.

    This guy explains the basics of it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmiwGm32dXU

    Force dynamics life drawing for animators is a book that you could by or download the pdf by typing the name on google. It really helps to teach you about movement and force that alot of great animators have in their figures.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks again for all the feedback everyone....I really do appreciate it! Keep em coming and rip my shit apart....I will return the favor as well to the best of my ability

    Some figures from this past Sunday's class. I will get the hang of using charcoal.....although the last one was graphite...and using a loose grip.

    You've got some great work in here! The reclining female in the last post is phenomenal!
    If you want a crit, I'd say that the breast on the very top study on this one seems off. Maybe its the rib cage protruding out too far underneath...
    Again, nice work
