    I'm loving the digital environment in the update! Your sketches seems to be getting better, too. Although I think you might want to consider working a bit more on pencil flow. Like, sketching with a light touch adding in line weight and structure.

    Keep up the good work !

    Yeah, skulls are cool. I have a bear, wolf and a red fox in my collection. I used to have a raccoon but my dog got a hold of it!

    The coolest skull I had was a Possum, because it has huge teeth and a tiny brain. It looks like a dinosaur skull or therapsid or something.

    Heya!

    keep it up with the studies. The contours of your figures are described really well. I think the proportions can be helped by toning down the size of the heads, and lengthening the torsos. the birds are really cute.

    @Telohs - thank you. I think the sketching is gradually getting slightly better, but a looooong way to go.

    @Theodor - Will have a look at some possum skull pics after that description, methinks!

    @yihlongli - Thanks. Figures are slowly getting there, although I still think think they are very awkward. Still having issues with big heads, but over time, they are shrinking!

    @C33D - Ta! Love me some birdies.

    Finished up first day back at work after the holidays and I am ZZZZZZ.....zz..z...z.


    1. Another self portrait from December. I'm sleepy in this pic too. Always sleepy!

    2. Messing around at in-laws house. Having a go at drawing a yorkie in anticipation of doing a pic for my mum of her dog at some point.

    ...so you flipped it...I am assuming you drew2 it from a mirror so no intead of your mirror image it looks like you.

    Did you know if you turn your left glove inside out it fits your right hand?

    You do eyes well. You should make that unfinished dog into a cyborg.

    Hi ally, the bird paintings are looking good. Keep an eye on your proportions with the figures, try drawing mannequins as shown in the Loomis books, concentrating on them at this point will help you alot with the overall proportions, then you can move on from there to start adding bones, muscles, etc http://www.fineart.sk/photo-referenc...rew-loomis/024 http://www.fineart.sk/photo-referenc...rew-loomis/026

    Happy NewYear to you Ally. Good to see the progress you are making and how your figures are getting better. My only crit, meant to help, is that in some of. Your digital figures all the lines and edges feel to hard and sharp and dark. I suffer from this also and I have to keep reminding myself to think and foreground and background on my figures and how the line of a leg or arm behind another limb wouldn't be as hard lined as the limb in front.

    Hope this makes some sense but it also something to think about with your portraits as well. Does the side of the face furthest away need as much definition? These are the questions I have started to ask myself.

    thanks for dropping by

    looking on your drawings:
    maybe try to use less lines and be more dynamic and fluent

    not everything must by said

    check this short tutorial for eg.

    Your birds and dino studies are awesome! I also love the Frazetta study, do more! The human proportions are often off. I see that Scriar already linked the Loomis books, that should help you a lot. Do you really have that big eyes? Also, be more patient and precise with crosshatching, try to indicate the planes better. Happy new year!

    @Theodor - yes, drawn from a mirror. I didn't know that about gloves, and that is bound to come in handy in this cold weather!

    @Scriar - absolutely my weakest point. I am actually in the process of stepping back and looking at loomis and bridgman to try and control my insane proportions.

    @Marian - thanks, and yes, I am hoping to get to the next stage of digital with fallout, hard/soft etc... so much to do, so little time!

    @Takashmen - Thanks for the pdf, will definitely keep it in mind. that is one of my biggest annoyances, that I am not very fluid and freeflowing, I do like to keep to lines, a bit afraid to experiment and be free, but that will come with time. (I hope)

    _ _ _ _

    Work is kicking my bum and only been back for two days! Oh to stay at home and draw draw draw. By the time I get home, have dinner and sort out the boring usual stuff, I am too tired to do much else. Hoping this will change as I get back into the flow. And would love to have the motivation to produce another colour piece soon!

    1. Squirrels! We have two that play outside the house and they are rather endearing.

    2. another squirrel. Tried a new technique with the human characters, took a basic pose, blocked it in, then put away the reference and filled in the gaps from memory / imagination.
