    Hello. Post 19 is really impressive, I love the colours. I think the Ironman stuff is good but you should definitely concentrate on creating your own designs and not doing too many (why not dream up some new suits?) Also your rendering seems stronger than your construction, I think a little more time on the proportions and placement at first will really pay off. Great portraits though, especially the girls. Good luck and keep up the studies.

    Thanks Dayle! Definitely see what you mean, I guess I have maybe got stuck in a copycat style without being truly original. I think that is when people are more likely to sit up and take notice. Did you mean the rendering on my portraits or general? I actually thought my drawing was better than my shading/rendering lol

    Here's a big dump of stuff I've done recently

    I really love your recent portraiture. It stands out stylistically as really original!

    I still think you need to work on sculpting facial anatomy. Study the skull, etc.

    very nice work overall.

    Thank you very much! It's great for someone to say such a nice thing, I'm still working hard on portraits but need to branch out in to other areas too.

    I just got a couple of loomis books so I am working hard on head structure!

    Edit: Tell me if images are too big, they look ok on my screen, but let me know.

    ^^Thank you for such a nice comment, I have been working hard with portraits >_<

    Wahhh so I was looking through Dave Rapoza sketchbook today and where he started to where he is now, it shows what is possible! I believe! If I work hard enough, I can get somewhere too. So, update, trying to work harder. Got my new Wacom Cintiq 13Hd last week, it's amazing! Here are the first sketches that I did with it. Some pretty girls

    The portrait studies are looking nice. And there seems to be improvement in your shading technique already. The million straight lines approach can flatten your subjects, mainly because if you put a flat line across something that's not naturally a flat surface it'll look wrong. Experiment instead with having your lines curve around and react with the forms you're wrapping them over.
    The old masters, especially etchers, were great at that shit. I mean this is cross hatching, not the single hatching you're using but I'm sure it'll get me point across regardless.

    Another thing that might help is plane studies of the face, in other to get more understanding of their structure. Some more figure studies wouldn't hurt either!

    Here's a nice resource that's great for morning warm up exercises too. More gesture studies mean less stiff figures, which everyone can benefit from.
    Keep up the good work! Hope to see more soon.

    @diano - thank you!
    @Naidy - Thanks for taking the time to post! Just wondering, do you mean like I did on post 32 with the sumo sketch? And what pictures did you find looked particularly flat, just so i know? I will definitely work on this, there is an artist I follow who does cross hatching to a level that just amazes me, hope I can even get somewhere close. His name is Kse32 on DA.

    Funny because I just started working on planes today, so hopefully my heads will begin to develop more structure!

    Thanks again! Will post more sooooooon!

    Most examples of the flatter shading's on your first page, but some evidence of it is on post 34, with the panda and the girls below. But the drawing of the sumo is an excellent example of you improving your shading technique, you're following the form of his face better there than the lines that're across the girls faces or the panda on 34. The body on post 43 also has a touch of flattening via the lines. It's always good to keep an eye on falling back into old habits though! Hope that helps any.

    Hi there! Thanks for dropping by my sketch book!

    I see a lot of improvements. The Iron Man paintings are nice and the lady profile painted in red! Keep it up.

    May I suggest you move out of your comfort zone and do some full body drawings or anatomy studies sometimes : )

    Thanks guys for the comments, I will do more anatomy stuff and work on my faces more.

    Too long since my last post, here's a dave rapoza inspired B and W sketch. Finding it really difficult, had some other attempts which sucked so bad, wish I knew how to go about it better. I'll keep trying though, I suppose you have to have a really good understanding of lighting.

    Aaaah, will have more up soon! Daily updates, come on, I can do this.

    Some quick Street Fighter scribbles I did earlier today at work, about 5 minutes each. Loomis is reaaally helping me, don't think I could have done these a couple of months ago. Also yes I play Street Fighter waaay too much! Sorry I kept the construction lines, if this offends you, feel free to hit me with a shoryuken. As sketchy as it comes!

    Some more SF stuff, and a C.Viper sketch. Getting somewhere slowly. Really struggling to find the fine line between painterly sketch and lazy unfinished.

    Working on planes of the head today, and rendering and stuff, still to do the other one. Did the head from imagination, used loomis to try and help with the planes

    Quick improvement! Your head anatomy is getting better, but I'd be careful when it comes to skin tones and lighting. The second to last profile painting has a lot of quickly changing colors, so I'm not sure if there are 2 light sources (pink and white) coming from the same direction.

    Thanks Wawlden. Yeah, that's why I went to looking at the planes, had no clue about planes of the head, lightsources, how to render it etc, without reference, so just lumped colours and stuff on hoping it came out right. Need to do a lot more work on these things, and we'll see where it takes me!

    Here's a quick sketch today at work. I think I'm getting better. Was just a simple portrait but got bored and turned her into some kind of soldier, was thinking Russian maybe.

    Will upload more stuff soon.

    Love love love the cammy. The values are just great; the 'sepiatone' background and white highlights really make it pop.

    My only recommendation is to focus on your line work a little more and try and add more movement to it.

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks a lot WarmSoda! Cammy seemed to be popular, should have done more in that style I think, came out really well. Oh okay, so you think a lot of my lines are too stiff? I will work on this.

    Alright so here's a big dump of SB stuff. I have only posted digital stuff in here, but recently I have went back to paper and pencil when I can, to work on my fundamentals, as a I feel they are not good enough. I guess all I've done though is practice portraits so far, lol. But I have improved a lot I think. This starts from last year, early this year, to now. Most are from imagination, only a few from real people.

    Hi,

    Nice study! I love your portraits!
    you're good with criticism and you follow the good advices of others. Keep Going!
    Especially do not stop drawing portraits, particularly doing what you like.
    If you exercised more poses and views of heads then you can draw your own characters.
    I see mainly work that you have copied of the internet or photos, that's good but when you has merges the knowledge would also be very well.

    Keep it going!

    "Too much head!" (that's -not- what he said)

    Lovely studies of the head at different angles. Makes me wanna do some of that too. I would love to see some figure/gesture stuff in here too~ You obviously appreciate detail, it shows in your work and your method... definitely keep it up!! Maybe try some scarier variety then return to your comfort zone then go back out, etc
