    @Alismuffin: thanks!

    two quick studies from movie stills...without using colorpicker and adjustments....just picking the color by hand all the time....such a good training. need to do it alot more

    btw: can't wait for it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_z2cxhf46IU&feature=fvst

    I love the brush-y, texture-y feel of your images.

    Very nice start to a sketchbook

    Don't forget to do longer studies, and more in-depth studies of principles; the former will help with process, rendering and textures, the latter (such as planar studies of figures, studies of muscle diagrams etc) will help with the underlying structure of things.

    the skull could have cool color on the shadows, or it;s just me ...

    overall, very good studies

    @PontusEuxinus:thanks! yeah there is so many stuff i have to work on, i know i know :/
    @Revidescent: thank you!
    @Graymalkin: thanks alot!
    @Jason Rainville: I know i should stop doing all those quick studies and go for more longer and in-depth stuff. i just watched mystery of form download and i think i will go back and do those basic studies again. but anyway i also started working on a cast drawing today....so there is hope
    @kevinwueste: thank you for stoping by! among other artists your work really makes me want to attend some figure drawing classes which i will hopefully be able to attend in a few month.
    @nevermindjoker: thank you! yeah probably... perhaps i will do some more work on that skull

    just a few more movie stills....same goal: no picking, no adjustments.

    i found out that my notebook monitor is pretty bad and my old and cheap tft is even worse...so posting all those colored studies is actually pretty pointless :/

    Those last few movie stills are pretty great; especially the Recovery Room one. Love the graphic, angular look.

    @thegrayslayer: thanks for stoping by!

    Great movie, midnight in Paris! Your SB is awesome, you can't really call it "getting started" because you seem to manage most of fundamentals like perspective, lighting, form...congratulations =)

    just trying out my scanner with a sketchbook page from this morning...dont know if its good...since the scans are waaaay to light and my notebook monitor is total garbage, so i dont know if the adjustments are about ok or way off on other monitors...perhaps im going to scan some other pages too.

    from the mirror...had a lot of trouble with that neutral light on a cloudy day...
    and it was actually my first selfportrait in color...seems to be waaay more fun and exciting than just doing b/w

    btw: kinda funny how my white wall is almost the same color as the forum with that lighting

    nice portrait studies, i like your use of color. maybe a bit overuse on the speckled brush, but details details

    thanks for sharing

    @Bakker: thanks...i only used that brush. i'm looking for brushes i feel comfortable with...and atm this is the only one i really like. and about details....i still don't really get the big shapes and forms right, so i don't know if it makes any sense to try adding more details....but i will try to push it a little bit more.
    @Damien Levs: thanks alot! i hope i won't disappoint you.

    one more selfportrait with almost the same set-up...tried a new brush and i hate it. stopped at this point because i fucked up once more. this lighting is really killing me. i will try it again tomorrow...i want to get it right
    and i look like a maniac on this one...
