    shockowaffel: thanks! I was pretty lazy with some of those. I actually have the RP stuff but lately i've been using other construction methods. I think they are still visible in a lot of these upcoming drawings.

    Here is some stuff from this week or so.. the more I do, the less I want to upload because: A) It takes time .. and B) there gets to be so much that it takes a while to upload.. but then I realized that any advice and criticism I can get on my work would be great.. so here it goes!!! stuff! The mech's aren't mine.
    All of the figures are 1min poses with some 5min poses as well.

    If you dont like uploading a lot, just dont do it. ^^
    Work and skribble a while and if something uploadworthy comes around, put it in your sketchbook, but if not...well, then not. There's no rule on CA that you must show everything.
    btw, do you know a good (free) tutorial on drawing the human eye ?

    shockowaffel: Good advice! Here are a couple of links to some loomis pages with eyes on them. I like to think of them as 3d forms and I also imagine the entire eye when drawing it (which includes most of what we can't see)

    a still life.. I don't think I push the values enough?
    and two faces. one was done in a car ride on the way to a DnD session and the other was done while listening to my friend's band play muuusic!

    Hi mate, thanks for your comment

    Looks like we're at a comparable level with roughly the same amount of drawing experience... now I'm gonna race you to the finish.

    First one to get hired by ILM wins.



    Go!

    The guns on the photostudy are looking awesome :o

    I think the trick with perspective is to think about it all the time. I'm drawing both sides of the car, then erasing the hidden parts, hopefully it makes things more convincing, even if the perspective is still not accurate... I figure if I always at least think about perspective and try to draw both sides of everything, it'll become natural eventually.

    Ooh, nice! The classic corvette style one is really cool

    Think the supercar has too much overhang at the front? Makes the wheels look tiny and far apart.

    kvetch: Thank you! I gotta catch up!! Is the super car the one in the bottom left? that left "wheel" is supposed to be the license plate but we can see how that turned out .. unless you were referring to something else. I have a model formula one car and I take pictures of it from different angles and whatnot. If you want some of the pictures to draw from just ask. I can't seem to find many good shots of actual formula cars so i got this one

    always be nice to your neighbours

    Hey, great job on the f1 car.

    Here's what I mean about the previous cars:

    Ps, thinking about this made me realize I made the same mistakes on mine. I didn't think about where the engine would be on any of mine... cars don't normally have much overhang at the front, especially not sports cars. Any weight in front of the front axle is bad for handling, which is why supercars are usually mid-engined.

    Dude, the top left car in #164 is awesome :o
    I'm so jealous of that plaster cast, was it expensive?
    The latest study looks great, big improvement over the previous one too. The drawing seems really good, but I think you could go a bit darker in the shadow side, it would feel a bit more 'real'.

    kvetch: thanks! The plaster cast came to eighty dollars with shipping. If you live in the USA then you can get one from amazon ( http://www.amazon.com/Plaster-Castin...d_sim_sbs_ac_3 ). Thanks for the tip. I noticed too that the middle third of the face is going a bit inward now that I look at it again!

    Pencils are tough.
    Here is a half attempt of the cast. It is a write-off. After starting the rendering phase I eventually gave up because the initial construction was so messed up O.o

    Hi mate,

    Nice updates Have you tried making those blending sticks where you wind a strip of paper tightly around the end of a pencil? You kind of rub & smudge the graphite around with them. Can't remember what they're called off the top of my head, but they're pretty fun.

    Kvetch: Thanks again. It's going to take a while before I catch up to you! I've never tried those blender paper things! perhaps I will... ONE DAY!!

    here are some sketches. Lines are references and the paint is from imagination

    Good idea doing the heads that way, I'm going to have to give that a go. Lighting looks good, particularly on 3. Watch the eye spacing on 3 & 5, and nose is a bit long on 1 :p

    Those blender stick things I was talking about:

    Kvetch: the spacing on 3 was intentional. 5 wasn't though. the nose on 1 is longer than I had intended and it is crooked to boot! I'm more interested in being able to blend as best I can without using one blending stick.. probably because I'm stubborn.

    On that note, pencils are still owning my face. here is the result of pencils kicking my ass.. well it was only 1 pencil.. MR. 4B

    very interesting work. iv started studying some perspective wonde3red if you could help me find some good tutorials/books/or tips. one thing i like is the ability to draw a line and use how perspective and angles give you other measurements; i get a problem tho with making precise circles or elipse, more so when in perspective, how do you over come this?

    many thanks.

    kineticjee: Thanks! yes I`ve found Scott robertson`s DVDs to be VERY useful. There is also Marshall Vandruff`s and Carl Dobsky`s DVDs on perspective which go more in depth.
    You can`t go wrong with those!

    kvetch: Don`t worry. I`m still drawing lots.. just not posting.. but fine, here are a couple of things...

    Kvetch: Ca c'est pour vous

    some sketches and a larger figure study.. all in charcoal.. I think im going to drop digital for some time until I really get a handle on values using traditional tools.. I'll then go onto learn oil painting!

    Good work.

    When you measure, try to measure accurately. In the pic of the head from imagination, where you measured five eyes across... several of the eyes didn't measure the same.

    Some of the head studies you've done from a cast (like the flayed head ... the one with all the muscles displayed) show some measurement inaccuracy.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?
