    This is a 1hr figure from photo.
    The first hour I spent messing up another figure drawing. I tried to render this in the Vilppu method and find it much harder than shading in shadow shapes.

    Love your grayscale portraits... they seem to have so much character in them.

    What kind of pencil are you using for those figure drawing of red/blue colors ? I would appreciate it if you could give me some pointers on figure drawing approaches. My sketches tend to be too loose, with lot of lines.

    Looking forward to more updates

    Been away for a while, heres some stuff..

    This is a head study from the movie twilight. I find that the movie is great for studying heads because the main characters' faces' is what it focuses on most. Also the lighting isn't heavy handed or explicit. It always seems to be a diffused blue light.

    Attachment 1404962
    The next 4 are about 5 Mins each, Im trying to render light and shadow in a formulaic way, instead of simply copying the 2d shapes of the values.

    Didn't finish this one. While painting the leg, I realized something I found unsatisfactory about my painting method. I think im gonna do some rethinking and experimenting.

    great figure studies but whenever I try to put sketches on the computer with my scanner its too light. How dark do you make them or how do you photograph them?

    Hey Capt Surge, well, i dont draw very dark either, and a lot of the stuff comes out really light when I scan it. I usually make it readable by manipulating the exposure in ps.

    So heres some more studies.

    Still trying to get the hang of painting using james kei's tutorial as a guide.

    Lovely progress already in 2 pages I'm so jealous of your rendering skills... i have so much trouble showing light in my pictures... do you have any advice for showing highlights in gray-scale? Do I have to intensify the values around the highlight or what? Also, for your latest post with the structured skulls, where did you learn that approach from? It looks really interesting and fun
    The only critique I really have for you is in your last gray-scale digi painting, the girls left calf looks really flattened against the leg, I imagine it would be more round?

    Hey Not_Deadman Thanks Very Much. For your question on Highlights, I guess my suggestion would be to make the highlight, the brightest white, and also make the edges sharp.
    For the Structured Skull, I purchased a Skeleton Torso from the Anatomy Tools site. http://anatomytools.com/products/ref...usts/bust-skel
    Its actually an excellent product and great for studying.
    Ohh yeah, I agree with your critique, the left leg is pretty flat.

    Hey Ixallus Thanks Very Much

    These are 45 Mins Each. Trying be more painterly so I did these without line. Man.. need more practice.

    Hey -D_art-, and Tamaira2011, Thanks very Much.

    Man.. This one was tough. I didn't spend too much time on the line drawing in an attempt to be more painterly. Obviously failed with the many proportion mistakes. I was making so many tiny adjustments all in vain. Gonna give up on this for now. Dosn't look very much like Aubrey Plaza imo.

    Need Critiques Please!

    So heres some crap..

    1hr Figure from photo. Think I gotta use Vilppu's form on top of form idea to make it more 3d.
    Attachment 1426578
    Drawing Done at the Met. Blaahh, Not so great due inadequate light in the Museum I think. I also found my sense of proportion needs lots of work. I have too much tunnel vision.

    Wow, This ones a break through for Me. Took 1.5 Hrs.
    I think im getting the hang of painting without line
    Attachment 1429243
    1Hr for this one. Didn't learn much. I was feeling anxious and jittery for some reason. I think its cuz of my protein shake.
    Just passively copied the shadow shapes instead of trying to analyze it.

    I recently read the Realism Vs Construction Thread. WOW!! super enlightening!! Im really gonna try to construct all my figures to the max, and learn a lot more anatomy.

    Hey RATCUB, thanks for the compliment. I just purchased Bammes' guide to figure drawing the other day. It was just translated into english so german speakers aren't the only ones that can enjoy it. Really great info. Also I've been studying lots of anatomy from Zach Pectrocs anatomy .obj file in zbrush.

    Again Albert Dorne Studies from the drapery section of FAC.

    Some more studies,

    Warm up painting, 45 Min. Trying to look at the whole, instead of being too mathematical with proportions. Gotta stop the tunnel vision.

    Did Studies of the Teres and Infraspinatus muscles.

    Finally wip Shishkin study. I tried to be as accurate as possible with proportions during the layin stage. Trying to break my tendency to rush the layin and spend hours on details. Bad habit of mine since a kid.
    Attachment 1438434

    Want to Add one more. My Crappy Imagination drawing. Also I've never rendered Drapery b4. Im gonna attempt it but it probably wont come out right. Also, I guess I should practice rendering hair more, as i couldn't make it work here.
