    Nice drawing but try to be more organized in how you block in the values. All those sketchy brushstrokes with too many values to stay under control at this point don't have a consistent lighting so I'd recommended scrapping them altogether, fill the image with a dark grey and start working from there. It would be a good idea to block in the shapes of the dogs before adding lighting. When you get to adding lighting, a good way to define it at the start is to use just two values for each form, one for light and one for shadow side. I like the way you've simplified the forms on the drawings, do the same thing when blocking the lighting.

    I would use larger brushes. J.P. Targete's Gnomon DVD deals with this quite well. I'd recommed getting your hands on it. He says, you almost draw with the brush. Let the shapes appear and do not worry yourself about the exact details. Start large and go down to small details. [end quote]

    Also, those perspective lines are distracting as hell. Use the line tool in Photoshop and make them black. Your brain will thank you!

    Blog - Check it out. It's fun.

    Sketchbook - I should really update more often.

    Portfolio - The most fun of them all.

    The problem is a lack f experience/understanding of composition, scene design and the overall process of image making. You should be exploring the composition/shot with small thumbnail sketches that clearly define in four to five large value shapes, in broad passages, what is happening. A scene like this requires no perspective grid. If you own Gurney' "Imaginitive Realism" simply follow his process but for your piece here.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Eleven figures. Oof. You're not making it easy on yourself.

    Also, OMIGOD DID SOMEBODY RUN OVER A KITTEN???

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
