    Great start to your sketchbook, really like the portrait and the warm flesh tones and feel of the girl in cowboy boots.

    Also got to do more studies and work on environments/backgrounds (I suck at these), so will check out those video links too.

    in2eternity - Thanks! I guess they technically are gestures, I don't tend to post my quicker (30 sec, 1 min) gestures, since there's just so many and I'm a lazy scanner. D:

    Justyna - Thank you!

    Nuked Tofu - Thanks, not sure what textures you mean? If it's on that photo study, it's all just textured brushes, some of which are mine and most of which come off the net... if it's on the armor, there're a couple of texture overlays from photos just for a little colour and tone variation, but they're mostly painted over already with the aforementioned textured brushes. As for the silhouettes, I think it's something they teach in more concept art/industrial design type schools perhaps, but certainly not where I went. That was actually my first serious attempt at silhouettes - I normally do start with a brain dump of a bunch of tiny doodles, but not filled in. Turns out it really is a nice way to focus on the shape.

    Henrique Ventura - Thanks and no prob!

    Ironbyte - Thanks! Am I going crazy or did you change your username? D: Yeah, check out the videos, they're a good kick in the butt.

    Vaejoun - Thank you! I think I'm a little bit in love with foxes now, they're so naturally gestural, practically liquid.

    I've spent the last week couchsurfing my way around Toronto, hence the sketchbook abandonment. I did get a couple of opportunities to do lifedrawing, though, as well as a lot of sketching on the subway and in coffee shops, so here's the first of a couple of catchup updates!

    I went to Dr Sketchy's for the first time, and had a blast. How many lifedrawing sessions feature an attractive man in 6-inch heels? (Only scanned a couple of images, I wish I had more good drawings of his first costume with the eyepatch. It was kind of amazing.)

    A couple of days later, I went to open lifedrawing at OCAD. (Not a lot of lifedrawing in Kingston, so had to take advantage of every chance I got in TO!)

    Really loved the model, even though she seemed to have her hand on her hip every other pose.

    Aaaand here's the rest of my Toronto week. Partly imagination and partly observation, but it's pretty obvious which is which. THRILL at the stupid stuff I drew while chilling in Polaris panels, CHILL at people standing in line at Tim Hortons, and BE AMAZED by random note-taking.

    This particular sketchbook is ink-only, because I use both pages and don't like when graphite pages rub together? IDK.

    Man, I started off so strong, and then posting just... dropped off. I AM GOOD AT THIS.

    Here's an image from a few months back that I spent a couple of hours fixing up and repainting. She looks much better than she used to, believe me. (It's a roleplay character of mine, and yes, she's a skinny, elven barbarian. I tend to refer to her as Barbarian Barbie.)

    Attachment 1293807

    The latest "lifedrawing" from photos. One of these days I'll scan my gestures, and you'll see why I don't scan my gestures. I tend to cram stuff into every space I can fit it, so half of them end up upside down and sideways and overlapping.

    Attachment 1293810

    My latest finished CHoW. There's a HUGE process dump over at my blog, but as it's like 9 separate image files, I don't really feeling like uploading it here all over again.

    Attachment 1293812

    Crappy late-night 20-minute doodle of a new D&D character, because I have no idea how to roleplay somebody I haven't drawn.

    Attachment 1293814

    Eye studies. Of eyes. I'm gonna do more of these.

    Attachment 1293813

    The reason for the eye studies. After watching the Zhang Lu tutorial download, I figured I'd take the suggestion of doing a bunch of heads from imagination, and... man, I need to work on that more. This one's not done yet.

    Thanks a bunch, mitchoo!

    I haven't had much time of late for the sort of intense study stuff I was doing at the beginning of the SB, but still, here's a few studies and some random WIP type stuff.

    NOSES.
    Attachment 1296139

    Here's a head exercise, for shits, giggles, and learnings. The first two in each row are traced from photos, the second two are referenced from photos, and the third two are from imagination. Good way to figure out things I'm consistently doing wrong.
    Attachment 1296141

    I started this yesterday - took reference and everything (a lamp without a lampshade makes a pretty good glowy ball of magic!) but I'm undecided as to whether I'll continue or not... I do like it, but it feels a bit too Kamehameha rather than fantasy magic. Also, the hands are messed up, if I do continue that'll be the first order of business.

    In lieu of anything better to post (stressful month means slacking on studies, about which I am NOT HAPPY) here's today's warmup doodle, one of my current D&D characters. Revenant represent.

    15 mins-ish per head.

    This is all really impressive.

    As a beginner, I can't wait to try that technique of tracing and then drawing from imagination side by side. I expect that'll help me a lot.

    TheOneAndOnlySteve - Thanks! Yeah, I've found it to be a helpful exercise... so long as you remember to look for the structure while tracing, constructing from rhythms and forms. =)

    Seage - Thanksss, I don't do nearly enough studies, really. Man, I love CHoW. It's what finally got me off my butt and joining the forum after lurking for... man, since high school. 6 years? 7? How long has CA been around?

    I started this thing as a late-night can't-sleep doodle a few nights ago, and found it today under the filename "AwfulFace.psd". After a little more work and some soul searching, I've decided to upgrade it to "SubparFace". This one's from imagination. NEED MOAR STUDIES.
    Attachment 1299692

    Speaking of studies, here's a WIP next to the facial reference and studies from that facial reference. I'm doing a couple of pieces of fan art for Fan Expo; this'll be of the 3 main characters of Supernatural. Weirdly, I think I got the likeness better on the face NOT directly referenced - those 3 Misha Collins face studies are terrible. The first one is recognizeably him, but with severely messed up eyes. The second is a passable John Barrowman. The 3rd... I'm gonna go with Ewan McGregor.
    Attachment 1299694

    And my other fanart WIP. I spent most of last night redrawing that face over and over, and it's still wrong. (If there's a theme to this post, it's that despite years of practice, I still lack a very basic understanding of head and face structure. On the plus side, I, uh, know this.) I've been doing these Art Nouveau Sandman pieces every year - two years ago was Death, last year was Delirium. This year, I'm going to have to branch out my Art Nouveau influences - not a lot in Mucha that feels quite right, but Aubrey Beardsley does dark, flowing shapes so very well. The challenge will be to make this one gel with the previous two.

    Your figure drawing is incredible! That's all I'm focusing on at the moment Posemaniacs is all I'm spending my time on haha.

    Looking at your work makes me excited for what level of art I'll be at someday!.
