    I haven't updated this sketchbook in a while but hopefully I can get hold of a scanner soon so I can put all of my life drawing studies in,
    mostly none portraiture stuff as well! But for now a quick hour colour study from Constantine.

    kingkostas: Thanks for checking out my SB man! you're a big inspiration and I really appreciate your input.
    Yemi775: Cheers! I'm glad to here my drawings are accurate, hopefully I can push it into other forms of media.
    Kayshay: Thank you, yeah my traditional works I believe are much stronger than my digital but hopefully I'll get there soon enough with more practical and analytical studying,
    I started to practice seriously in June 2011, so a year and a half I haven't practised much anatomy lately so I best get going on that!
    Artful_Stool: Much appreciated, I'm 20 now (almost 21) so you have plenty of time to catch up, but I don't think age really matters, just your motivation to get better. I'll check out your work soon as I try to with most people who are generous enough to stop by in here.

    Damn it's been a while since I last updated! Not much to show unfortunately, I was occupied with an abundant amount of University work sadly.
    But I finally have a break from it over the holidays and I've decided to focus my practice on Life drawing this week, I have figurative life drawings too
    from The Louis Smith Portrait School which has been a treat that I need to scan. I also started on a study of Sir Patrick Moore, sad to hear of his passing, such an inspiring TV presenter and Astronomer. The still life's took between 40 minutes and 1 hour 20 minutes and I'm about 2 hours into the Moore study.

    Good stuff! In the one sketch of the weird shaped looking piece and the like top bottle, the weird looking shape's shadow is off quite a bit. Other than that keep the work coming! I'd like to see that painting finished as well. Hope you are enjoying the holidays

    Kayshay:Thanks, I know the shadow looks very odd but the plane was facing away from the light source, I could maybe take a photo next time I'm back home to show you

    Some recent studies, the portrait and shoe are from life.
    I made a horrible mistake with the eyes so I removed them, I think facial features is something I need to practice more.

    Yemi775, Cabbage Caterpillar:Cheers guys!

    Just a quick update today; still life with digital colouring, I had no idea how difficult colouring from life was in dark lighting.
    Quick John Aiken and Bridgman studies.

    i love the way your works always have constructions its as though you are thinking on a 3D point of view. Good Job Buddy.

    Hey Ben, just wondering - is John Aiken this guy? http://ava.hkbu.edu.hk/people/prof-john-aiken/
    Really like your first drawing/painting in post 101. It's looks super 3D and it's got a mesmerizing shape

    90 minute Skull from imagination, after viewing some reference photos I realised some of the anatomy is wrong, but I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out.

    Hey you've got some wonderful studies/stuff in general going on. Your SB is very nice, and there's been definite improvement! I really like your anatomy studies, they seem really solid. I noticed you use a lot of straight lines to put objects/faces/figures together, why is that?

    I really love your angular style. Awesome studies on this page. The strong angular feel is very appealing and gives a unique feeling to your work. Keep it up

    Well, thanks hotmail for NOT notifying me of all the wonderful comments I've received!

    Well, it's been far too long since I last posted on here, I've had a huge art block this summer regarding practical efforts and only managed to find a small amount of motivation/inspiration to actually create. Constantly looking at artwork and not creating any of my own hasn't been the greatest help (but I have learnt a lot theoretically).
    So back to studying, here is a 3 hour study of John Aiken's 'William Kelly'. Much different approach to this to my regular routine for a digi paint, I often use a contour drawing as a base layer then paint in the shapes on a new layer, but decided to go straight into large brush strokes and erase edges into the correct shapes for this piece. I think its worked far better than any other digital study I've done so hopefully I'm on the right track! Some imaginative work has improved too so I'll find time to post some up over the next couple of weeks.

    Really loving the way you are breaking up your shapes, you've got a really great eye for form. The Snow study is looking good mate! Keep pushing it.
