    Back from the grave

    I thought long and hard, and decided to take a break from art for a little while. It was extremely frustrating for me to continue to spend time and resources on something that was no longer bringing me any sort of enjoyment. Just recently, however, I decided to get back into digital painting as a therapeutic exercise, and it has worked wonders for me. I'm slowly regaining my former sense of enjoyment from art, and I intend to continue at it to see where it takes me, although I will probably never pursue it as a career as I originally intended to.

    Good to see you post allot of work in a short amount of time. Keep up that work ethic.

    First thing I would advice you to check out is figure construction. Using simple large shapes to construct your pose and adding more detail on top of that. Check out Hampton's "Figure drawing - Design and invention" first (the best book I found on the subject). After that you could check out Loomis, Bridgeman etc (also extremely good, but Hampton has was a little clearer to me).

    Examples of the process (found this in a tutorial by Tracy J Butler):

    Also, you might want to work in value first instead of throwing in color already. Nothing wrong with color ofcourse, but working in black and white will probably help you understand 3D form faster. After which you can throw color in the mix easier.

    I would also like to see some drawings from live. Try to use the construction methods on things that you see before you.

    Keep it up and good luck!
