    Here, have a pile more heads. Still trace 2/ref 2/make up 2.

    Attachment 1398887

    I did a quick painty thing of one of the made-up ones I liked. Other things I need to study: how the hell do eyebrows work when they're not just line drawings. Double for blonde eyebrows.

    I will seriously never finish this picture if I don't stop redrawing every single figure over and over. I think most of them have been redone 3 or 4 times now. I have to let gooooo.

    Apparently skulls.

    Attachment 1399437

    This is such a helpful exercise but it really makes for boring SB content, maybe something new tomorrow. I have some half-finished stuff today that's not yet worth posting... planning-type stuff.

    Thanks, williams!

    I did not accomplish all that I intended to accomplish today. Have a 20-minuter. Still reffed from Blade Runner, I will not run out of these for a LONG TIME.

    Nice work on the skulls, I can see it's sinking in... now all you have to do is repeat that exercise for hands, feet, arms, legs, torso's and every other damn thing you hope to draw in your lifetime lol... That's just the way it goes i guess I draw skulls all the time and I still learn new things from them. Everything is a numbers game 5 *****

    When you do a still ref like the one above, do you do relatively detailed line art first, or do you go straight to colour blocking? I tried to do a similar thing with a Six Feet Under still and it looked ghastly.

    And boring sketchbook content is the best kind. It rids newbies of the idea that artists just poop out miracle art with no boring, tedious practice in between.

    Hi. Your sketchbook is very impressive, so much high quality work... Mass Effect, Dr who and Supernatural? Three of the most awesome-ist sources of study :-) The studies of Amy Pond look fantastic, you have great observational skills. The supernatural / stained glass piece works really well too, glad you finished it. My only thoughts would be to do more real life observational drawings, like the market piece? It made me think of this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fileierre-Auguste_Renoir,_Le_Moulin_de_la_Galette.jpg

    Dark_Eyes - No kidding! The 2/2/2 exercise is helping so much I might have to apply it to, uh, everything else. Maybe hands next. Stupid hands.

    littlebones - For longer studies I'll do a pretty detailed drawing, but for the 20 minute ones I'll throw down something like this in the first 2 or 3 minutes, and do the rest with colour. As you can see in the final below, this does not always end well.

    AllyAlbon - Thank you!

    Krucification - Thanks, glad the refs help. =)

    Dayle - Yeah, I really need to do more observational life stuff... I've got some train sketches on the last page, but since I'm out of the city now, maybe it's time to raid a coffee shop. (No more outdoor stuff until spring, though, the way the weather's been I would LOSE MY HANDS.) Also, you have good taste in fandom. =D

    Since people seem to like when I post ref links, and this is all I've been using for like a week now, here's a zip of the 100-odd Blade Runner screencaps I took. There's a few random zoomed out ones, but it's 90% heads, because that's mostly what I took 'em for.

    Speaking of Blade Runner and heads, this one is awful, but here it is regardless. (Actually, I'm pretty happy with the colours, but the face structure is just... a hopeless blob. Apparently I don't know what to do with a weak chin and/or beard.)

    Not a lot of stuff on the weekends because it's when I allow myself to give in to my MMO addiction and go play some SWTOR, but I'm still trying to keep to the New Years resolution of posting something everyday.

    On the home stretch with this. I THINK I've finally stopped redrawing everybody over and over, though there's still a couple of parts that I hate and I don't think everybody's proportional to each other. The friend this is for is visiting tomorrow, so hopefully she can look at it then and tell me if I've got all her characters right before I print this and ink the final...

    Yes, that one guy has no lower legs yet.

    Some thumbnails for this Art Order challenge, which I am starting wicked late.

    These are narrowed down (and slightly tightened) from two dozen odd thumbs, and I'm still not sure I like any of them, but time is short. Any crits, or even opinions on which one is best would be super appreciated.

    Whirly - Thanks!

    Just a quick doodle today so I have something to put up here... spent most of the day bravely battling CSS stylesheets.

    A character from a story I've been poking at. Her race is meant to look a little bit fae and a little bit alien, but unsettling either way. There's a reason they cover everything but their faces.
