    Return of the...well...I'm not a Jedi, but I do like Star Wars.

    Welcome to my second sketchbook.
    The first one has stuff in it that is nigh on a year old, so I started fresh, so you guys can see my more recent stuff and tell me what's wrong with it.
    Yaaay! Constructive criticism!

    There may even be some NSFW stuff in here, because I'm revisiting anatomy, although now, a year on, I'll be able to do what I'm told rather than giggling at boobs.

    Please leave a comment, in fact, if you think of something, you will post it.
    *Waves hand like Ben Kenobi*
    Oh, yeah, I forgot... I aint no Jedi...

    like an idiot I made a new sketchbook thread (and signature) before my A3 scanner arrived in the post (proverbial check bounced ) and I haven't been able to scan in any of my work, I have an old sketchbook, but I don't particularly want to share that one, I feel like I haven't updated it in so long it doesn't give an accurate picture of where I am, skill-wise.
    and also, don't worry 'bout it

    smart plan with the sunglasses.
    here's a newer version of the girl + a dodge challenger 1970: my favourite car, I tried to do it in the style of Calum Alexander Watt.

    Thanks for the visit man, there's more stuff incoming, I tend to do a few drawings then dump the whole lot in one go. (plus the thread is relatively new.)

    Ha ha I nearly spat my coffee all over my keyboard when I read your comment in CHOW! Things are looking pretty good in here, I really like that sci-fi armour. You should try some really loose value studies with a big brush to start. It'll help you find unusual shape that you can refine. Also pick out a dramatic main light source. Drama is sooooo important when selling an image. Like that dragon piece, if I really wanted to go to town on it I'd have the camera above him as he turns to stoop on something on the ground. And have him and the rider looking in that direction. Line of sight is a really useful dramatic tool. Have a play man, the more shitty thumbnails you do the better your image will be. If it doesn't work as a basic thumbnail, it won't work as a fully rendered image. Peace

    using a site I found to do some studies, I want to do one a day at least. Although I do have a lot of other work to do this week.
    Thanks for that advice GEB, I think doing thumbs will really help me with my composition (yet another thing on the long list of stuff I need to work on) having a decent final image is really important, ATM a lot of my work is just a subject on a plain background.

    I did a little paintover, if you don't mind. You need to always keep in mind the position of the hip in conjuncture with the ribcage. Think of these as boxes. It's sometimes difficult to imagine these because of the shadows, but you have to try to look beyond them and simplify the planes. On your copy the ribcage looks pretty good but the pelvis looks very, very off.

    I'm always happy to get crits, I spent a long time on that area, and seeing as I only gave myself an hour, I had to move on to other parts before I got it right. Thanks for the advice about the boxes though.
