    Level 7 (14/780) Happy Hogan

    kitfox Thanks for the advice, did some skulls like you suggested and I think I learned alot from doing them that way.

    Michael Grieco Thanks!

    New year's resolution is to be more serious and consistent with my studies. Below are some more skulls, my take on a brief from Tonge's book (A mech-planet construction site), update on my cast, and for fun a birthday card I gave my mom (she's an NBA fan.)

    Yes, some more skulls. My goal was to draw 100 so only a few more to go. I think it has helped me understand its shape a little better though. And some progress of my cast.

    The last of my skulls for awhile. For my 100th, wanted to do a still-life. I'll think a put a little more time on that one, see if I can salvage what's supposed to be drapery.

    The skulls are definitely getting better. After you're done with your last one, try putting some muscles on them?

    Level 7 (392/780) Happy Hogan

    kitfox thanks, yeah i have no clue how the muscles on the face work. I'm gonna make some more stops around the skeleton then dive into attaching muscles, can't wait!

    Nyoron thanks, prolly ribcage, I want to get a better idea of it's basic shape

    Finished the skull I was working on.
    I told myself no matter how bad something looked, if it was part of my studies I would put it in here. And so there's my cheerleader. Ugh, at least it tells me where I'm at and how far I have yet to go...

    Doing some thorax studies from Peck. Just for fun, Batman and I (a quick sketch at work) and playing in Photoshop.

    More shoulder girdle studies from Peck. And some sketches of AIM agents (I just enjoy drawing those beekeeper heads) and tried some gestures while watching The Biggest Loser.

    Sushy thanks and I think taking my time going through Peck's book is helping me learn a lot, especially figuring out what point he was trying to get across with each drawing.

    More studies from Peck.
    A WIP of my take on a "futuristic city" brief from Tonge's book. Never tried something like it before and it's supposed to be on water. I'll spend more time on it, it definitely has been a learning experience.
    And a caricature of Steven Tyler while I was watching American Idol (dang, second admission of watching a reality tv show in consecutive posts, not cool.)

    OHI Thanks!

    A couple photostudies inspired from how many Sushy does in her sketchbook. I'm a little happier with the guy than the girl. Maybe should have spent more time on her face to make it more of a focal point like his.

    Level 8 (502/900) A.I.M. agent

    Some anatomy studies - some proportions are off and kind of guessing where some bones are since I'm not sure where the muscles attach yet.

    And a still life, ~ an hour. Had a lot of trouble with the penny, finding colors and just painting it in general, but pretty happy with how far i got it.

    Level 8 (699/900) A.I.M. agent

    A couple (bad) photostudies from dvd covers and a still-life. I threw out a bunch of dvd cases but kept some of the covers I wanted to draw, so there'll prolly be more of these coming.

    Level 9 (370/1020) Skrull Warrior

    Few things for the past few days. Arm studies from Peck, a few photo studies, including one I showed earlier, the only change I made was add a duplicate Multiply layer, which I liked much better. Made me realize I need to try and be bolder with my color and have more contrast. I think my eyes get too used to what I'm working on and forget the broad range of contrast and saturation.
    Also my first couple tries of making something in Sculptris, fun program and free! I think I'll play around with it more. And lastly a "self-portrait".

    Hey browntear, been a while since I stopped by, but it looks like you've been busy. You're skulls are improving for sure, lol honestly I'm impressed, I don't think I'd have the patience to keep knocking them out.

    I did reply to you in my sketchbook but I'll just say it here real quick to so you see it sooner. The Zhanglu videos are amazing, feel a bit short (60 mins) but well worth it. So if you want them snag them now while they are still on sale. The savings are worth it.

    [edit] OK just got to say, I missed this one before but wow the third study on that page is incredible, great work love those lines and the rendering well done

    Really great paintings here. For now I will say though that the pelvis you drew in the figures, are too small, the pelvis goes much higher up on a person. Perhaps finding xRays would help?

    The skull studies and cast studies are really great, keep it up!

    Trailblazer Yeah I was pretty glad once I finished the skulls and didn't have to do 'em for awhile. Thanks for letting me know about the Zhanglu vids, I'll definitely have to pick them up!

    Kudaku Thanks for the tip, I definitely have to fix that. I checked out your blog, great stuff. Ever think about putting up a sketchbook here? I would follow it. =)

    Sushy I actually got it from kitfox's sketchbook, post #2. It comes from the idea of putting in 10,000 hours to become a master or expert at something. Kitfox broke it down into 100 levels where you level up after you put in a certain number of minutes. I grew up as a Marvel comics geek so I assigned all 100 levels to a Marvel character just to make it fun for me. And I only count minutes if I'm focused on doing/learning something (so if I'm mindlessly sketching while watching tv, I don't count it.) And I don't believe 10,000 is a magic number where skills go epic, but keeping track has motivated me to at least try and put in a solid 60 minutes a day.

    Some arm studies (Peck) and another photostudy. First time trying a car. I need alot of help with color, it looks like the car is dirty and has bunch of purple smudges on it. Other than that was fun though.

    Sushy hahahaha, thanks Sushy!

    Ah yes some more photostudies, getting through the stack of pics I rip from magazines. But I do think doing them helps me for now. I should do more still-lifes though, just wish I had neater things lying around. Also, a couple pics from imagination and for just for fun a rough on my Neo leap year calendar, I'm working on.

    You have great stuff here, legendary studies I'd say and the level of detailing is indeed incredible. I'd suggest working a bit on making your figures more dynamic - what helps me is quick gesture drawings, maybe the same trick will work for you too.
    It will also help you understand proportions better, because sometimes you conjure excellent proportions and sometimes not so excellent.
    Anyway, enjoy drawing !
    Cheerios!

    Kerah Thanks for the nice words! I definitely agree that my proportions can get really wacky sometimes. I've been pushing back doing quick gesture drawings, so I'm glad you mentioned them. It makes a lot of sense that they would help with my proportions, I never thought of it that way. Gestures coming soon!

    Some more photostudies, a still-life, and the first dvd cover I copied that I was pretty happy with.

    level 11 (189/1260) S.H.I.E.L.D Agent

    Went to the local coffee shop and sketched some patrons. I need to do this more often because I need to draw from life more and I get really nervous drawing in public or when other people are watching me, like literally almost shaking. Need to get over that. Also a photo study I turned into Commander Maria Hill from S.H.I.E.L.D. (and no that uniform is probably not standard issue for S.H.I.E.L.D.)
