    Looking good, man. I've always enjoyed your pencil work, but it's good to see you getting into some more digital lately too.

    @MrFrenik: Good to see you online again man, thanks for the kind words.

    I've been continuing to look a little more at environment focused work recently, also a sketch of Rick Deckard just because.

    Here's some life drawing from the other night. I hadn't been to a session for over six months so it was great to get back into it.

    Working on a little 10" x 10" movie themed painting for a show at the moment. Has been a fun piece to work on.

    Good Work Dave! It's been a while since I stopped by your SB but I can see the loomis has been helping and your figure work is coming along nicely. Keep it Up!

    My pal Mike Perry (Wheeljack18) got me inspired to try and work on some portrait paintings. I'm treating them as quick(ish) studies for improving my sense of colour and rendering process.

    Hi guys,

    It sure has been a while! A lot of new work has been done since I was last on here but I'll just post a selection of that today. I've been doing a lot of portrait studies recently and have found them hugely beneficial to for improving my drawing and colour application. If you are at a loss for what to do for practice I'd encourage you to have a go at a portrait. It's good to be back on the site!

    Here is a self portrait I completed for Self Portrait Day last week.

    For some details on how I made the piece and some great software for taking photo reference check out my blog.

    I recently had a piece in a local charity show, the brief was to create a painting 10" x 10" using a film as the inspiration. I of course did star wars. The painting was completed with oils on masonite panel.

    I like your anatomy studies, especially #128 because of the way you can already "read" off these figures. Portraits are great, but somehow I feel there could be some more "living" colors. Also, perhaps you could try giving them different backgrounds? I feel that the first lady in #146 would look smashing against a dark background.

    Great batch of latest work, man. I know I haven't been on in a while, so I made a big update yesterday, if you're interested in checking out. The portraits on here look great, I can tell you've definitely gotten more comfortable with painting digitally. One crit that might help you out is to work on differing between soft/hard edges. Softer as you go away from a focused area and more hard edges closer in. Oh, and we look a lot alike; your self-portrait was like staring in a mirror for me, ha.

    Here's the finished version of a piece I've been working away at for a while now. I took a break from it for a few months and in some spare time came back to make some changes. I wrote an article about how the piece evolved for my blog which can be found here.

    Fuggedaboudit: Thanks for having a look at my sketchbook. I think you're totally right on both counts. Working on my colours is close to the top of my list at the moment.

    MrFrenik: Hey man! I haven't been on for a while either. I'm inbound on your sketchbook first thing tomorrow morning (it's too late for me to write anything vaguely intelligent now) Nice note on the edges. I've been reading a lot about edge control recently and need to keep paying attention to it in my work. Thanks for helping to bring that to my attention again. I'm glad to hear you were equally blessed with movie star good looks haha now we just need a self-portrait from you. Talk soon dude.
