    Loomis heads, and i think the other head style was from Michael Hampton's book. The body construction ive been practicing certainly is.

    The lined book was one i used to take into work and draw in on my breaks so people wouldn't notice, sorry about that. I take a normal sketchbook now and deal with it

    I really like the ones of photographic reference

    May I recommend using a darker pencil or perhaps editing the images slightly so your drawings stand out more? Right now, they're quite light to see in their fullness!

    Thanks Meysha Yeah i realized that after i scanned them in. Tried to change up the settings to increase contrast but it didn't improve it very much. I might try using my camera instead of the scanner as an experiment for the next time i post up (going to have to for the A3's anyhow)

    One more for tonight

    Was meant to be a girl on a tv show i was watching, i messed around with here mouth too much and couldnt erase the shadows so she ended up with a moustache.
    Friend at work tells me she looks like brad pit (hey at least she's still hot ).
    You be the judge

    This was my second gimp piece (of a mighty three). Bit more of a work process in play here, i made this in response to a seventh sanctum contest.

    I included the last drawing because that was what i intended to colourize as a final to submit but i got the submission date mixed up and didnt get it done. It represents the end of my train of thought at the time.

    The last and most recent gimp sketch. Currently my favorite, the initial sketch was from my old sb thought id repost it side by side with the final

    Gone right back to basics. These took much longer than i anticipated. Also i seem to suck at ellipses

    Ok after my first spartan camp link and some feedback (especial thanks to LittleMaiden for putting me onto Lulppu) here are some gestures.

    Playing with the idea of using the side of the pencil underhanded so ive doubled up on each pose. Also i numbered them after id finished, missed a page and had to improvise numbers

    I like that girl's face up there. Her lips were done very well! It's good to see your practicing face variation early since it can be a hard habit to break later. Are you using reference for your character's clothes? The hem (I think that's what it's called) Of the koala's robe could use a bit seeing as there is nothing really keeping it closed like that.
