And various doodles.
Most of my time has been used up doing some storyboard stuff and applying for grants for a film that I wanna make. Still very much in pre-pro, but we're getting there.
Anyways, these are mostly just in my journal, so mixed quality. Fun nonetheless.

Love the energy in your sketches, especially that chick with the gun in your last post. For the planes discussion, it might be helpful for you to do some studies of a planar model to help you see the planar surface of the face: http://www.flickr.com/photos/garysev...7602588651653/ Also, Figure Drawing Design and Invention by Michael Hampton is all about breaking the figure down into simple 3-dimensional objects and planes, so that might be something you want to look into.
I also highly recommend painting from life with a focus on color and texture. And one last thing, your skintones feel very desaturated and grey - don't be afraid to add some warmth to the to brighten them up a bit.
Keep up the good work!

@dierat: Thank you! Those planar photos look pretty helpful. I'll give 'em a go. I'll see if I can't find some scans of that book.
All in all, I'm glad to hear that contrast isn't an issue anymore! And my streaky brushstrokes have gone by the wayward.
I'll work on a piece where I really put some color into it, as opposed to the duller tones that I've been using. I usually have a habit of going a little haywire with color, but have toned it down lately. I dunno why? I find myself making a lot of obvious mistakes doing the digital painting that I catch a lot quicker when I use traditional media. Oh well! Train myself all over again, I guess.
Anyways, I started working on this piece today, started everything out in planes and have tried to make sure that 1) there's contrast 2) a clear division of planes and 3)blended shading. Gotta go go go.

Good effort! You're on the right path. I'm going to say that you are jumping the gun a bit though. Try to study planes with just pencil. Or at least outline every plane first.
You also need to break-down planes even more than you are now. You are simplifying very complex forms too much. The picture below shows how many planes it takes for the nose to take its form. Now try to apply that principle with everything else you see around you.
got that image from this book: http://philippefaraut.com/store/book...ting-book.html. if you were interested. Though, I can't remember if it was the first or second book.

I've done a lot of pencil work this week that I haven't scanned yet, but I thought I'd play around with painting today. Anyways, I've been checking out some information on the head planes and those sort of things, and I think it is solidified in my mind.
First, I drew Boondocks fan art. Cause I can. The sword is all sorts of wrong, but it's not really an academic drawing SO WHO CARES.
Then I'm currently working on this piece for fun. Maybe just an excuse to look at attractive male torsos, maybe a plane study. Who knows.

I told you that I will be back to discuss things,
but now you are away. What is happening?
I started to like your ways and your progress,
your colors so delicious. Any chance of an
update? Something messy and brutal?
Surprise us when we least expect it.
