    felt that i was a bit rusty on the basics so went back to scott robertsons dvd to learn more.

    Be more accurate with your guides as they will decide how accurate your drawing is.

    Some thumbs for EOW. try and bring more dark into your pictures and more variation.

    Some arm practice and noses. try and vary structure in noses, use hook noses etc. practice more arms. (all the noses were from mind, only a few arms were.)

    Some Face gestures. Remember to build features in 3d, try and practice different lighting methods and try and get soft edges in using hatching? (Faces were all from my head)

    Xbox industrial design.

    A few mistakes, dont guess the perspective for longer studies work it out. also learn about the mechanisms, specifically the difference between chinese and mediterranean xbows,

    This is a chinese xbow design. still need a few tips with line weight.

    Some logos and drapery studies

    and some heads....


    and some hands.

    Ok so heads, think about the size of the eyes, think curves and make sure proportions are accurate. dont make lips too big, make sure the indent before the top of nose and skull meet is there. make sure to show rounded head form when in perspec make sure ears are big enuff.

    Hands: make sure knuckles are in right place make sure the proportions of teh fingers and the thumb are right. study structure of the thumb.

    keep learning drapery and keep making logos

    Care this is a great start!!! And your grasp on perspective is strictly badass ( I'm kind of jealous...). I think if you applied your knowledge of shapes and perspective to anatomy that will help you a lot as the human body is simply a bunch of shapes. Though I think the issue is getting a good understanding of the relationship between body parts and their proportions to one another. I'd spend some time studying loomis or hogarth, and with the time you're putting in to your perspective studies applied to anatomy you'll improve in no time! Keep up the good work!

    Nice work... and you're killing the Michael Hampton and Scott Robertson studies!

    Showing good progress in the rendering skills, too.

    If there's a piece of advice I could give you it would be to resist the temptation to get into too much detail before you actually have all the shapes/forms in your composition defined.

    It's good to get the information from these studies locked in your brain, but it's also good to build great accuracy through observation (drawing from life)... that kind of sensitivity you build over a time will help with stuff like faces. Go for the big shapes before the small shapes, and make sure they harmonize with each other.

    Great to see the hard work so far!

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    some arc ideas and an old photostudy.

    Make sure values are spot on, remember to subordinate small masses to big masses. remember to place highest detail at focal point and to draw attention around the form. with photostudy, try and do quicker and work on getting correct edges.

    Man you seem to improve really fast!!! Your skills are very good in overall, and i think the greatest thing is that you work your thumbnailing skills [and i see great results]. keep building your anatomy and everything. I think you are really on the right track. Keep up

    Your geometry and architecture are good. For faces really it's similar just slightly less geometrical. You create the general face and the features lay on top but it has to be laid in the same perspective the right way or it will start to look odd. This is also difficult because the features wrap around the face. Even the eyes are balls that curve which has to be taken into account no matter the facing. Also look into implied line. That's what I usually note is wrong with mouths that people do. Since the lips don't have contour they have value but it's often hard for people to get the mix just right, some make them too dark, some just don't add any value but the whole thing with the lips like any feature is describing the form. Actually scratch that, I meant suggested line.

    For drapery I would look into Vilppu some. Because the stress with Vilppu is understanding why each folds is made then stressing exactly which folds you should because the focus is describing the form underneath. When you put too many folds without an action it starts to look a bit odd. Because every fold if you look in real life is made for a reason. They each stress action or a twist and tension.

    Just keep on cranking them out though you've improved a lot from the first page. Practice and observation.

    Awesome stuff! I totally dig your Rendering 101 series; I should try that out too Yeah, like someone else pointed out, you're kinnnnda jumping into details before getting the forms right.

    What I really like about your thread is that you are learning at an organized pace with planning., especially the last couple of pages. I should try this.

    Don't bother looking at my sketchbook. I haven't updated that thing in years. :/
