    Drew some things that I actually enjoyed this time. Shading was really tedious for the armored dude and it was hard for me to create a value scale for the various armor pieces. Slowly going through loomis as well.

    good job on the character piece, is that copied or from you? its looking pretty cool I like the design. I also have probs creating value scales when drawing imaginary pieces. I guess lots more life studies espc of different materials to see how light and darks play out. also still try and focus more on rendering with form to create that overall 3d feel. Also think you might benefit from some longer value studies using still life set ups where you build up the tone gradually using a range of pencils, iv found that doing that has helped me a lot in terms of my rendering and smoothness although I still have some ways to go.

    but its good that your mixing up the drawing and drawing some stuff for fun it can be a reward for doing all those studies.

    ja1307 - Thanks man. The first character is from a game called heroes of newerth. I used the original concept art and in-game model as reference but came up with my own pose and made a few changes as well. I agree that longer and more frequent value studies will help with the rendering.
    JanLoos - Thanks! You should put a link to your sketchbook in your signature.

    Tried to paint the character earlier in grayscale but my knowledge of values and shadows are still lacking. I need to stick to simpler things, maybe paint the five basic forms in photoshop before I go for the complicated stuff.

    Kinhe - Thank you. I'm taking Peter Han's class this semester and it's helping me a lot with thinking in 3 dimensions.

    Here's a mishmash of random things I've been working on. I really should invest in a scanner. The quality of these photos are terrible.

    Damn I haven't updated this thread in forever. I've been slowly doing more and more digital work since my last post and I'm happy to say that I've gotten pretty comfortable with it. I'm still working on my fundamentals though! Perspective is a major subject that I plan to cover within the next few months.

    Alex Pencil - Thanks man! Feel free to point out what aspects you like and dislike about the images if you're struggling to find words for a critique.

    Here's some more traditional stuff I've been working on, including my first traditional painting.
