    have been going through a difficult period with motivating myself to draw (probably because i dont draw enough)
    I have to get out of my funk and into the swing of things and catch up on some basic stuff.
    some stuff from imagination I tried to get myself going again.

    You have such a great sense of form and anatomy, Grey. For that reason alone I hope that you can find your way out of the funk and stay motivated to keep going.

    Great to see that you're drawing again Grey. Motivation is a bitch, I used to have times when I couldn't draw for months on end. In my personal experience, you just need to beat the crap out of motivational problems by drawing/painting anyway, no matter what. Feels bad the first few minutes butit gets gradually better, better than procrastinating at any rate.

    I think you're doing very well, you've got very nice line quality in your drawings which is especially impressive since they seem to be digital (I assume you're working with an Intuos or similar?). How about some life studies though? Your still lifes on the last page are nice, especially the one with the Mozart- bottle. Overall I'd say you need to do more with colour as well, master studies, life paintings, whatever you'd like to do, but try to really dive into colour.

    Keep 'em coming! And remember, beat the crap out of motivational problems until they're sitting in the corner of the room crying their eyes out.

    Some imaginative work might help you to get out of the funk, Grey. I know that if I study too much that I start to really dislike drawing. Usually that's a good indicator that I need to do something creative to remind myself why I do this shit.

    Hey!

    Nice construction studies of simple shapes. That kind of imaginative work will pay off in the long-run. It all starts from a simple shape. The part I hate is when you overlap an abundance of lines and you can't tell where perspective is going anymore lol- (as well as figuring out the "other side" when it's all clouded- I hate that.

    But I digress: nice construction overall- including on the mannequins. I agree with what someone said here, about doing some imaginative things once in a while.

    Behind every great master is a great student...

    Imagination is more important than knowledge- Albert Einstein...

    Great to see thorough anatomical studies.
    Remember the human body is a mix of hard and round shapes, so that you can get natural body contour when you've got the planes set.
    Keep it up, looking good so far.

    Really nice work on the heads. I can see you're getting a feel for the structure and planes of the head as a result. I think the values were more of a problem in these recent thumbnails. Have you tried working out the values and adding colour later? Direct to colour is a lot to deal with.

    jondawo-you are right,should do some value studies and focus on that,I just kinda did them to get into the swing of things.


    Rotor-thanks man,my figures do tend to look mechanical and rigid and thats what everyone keeps telling me
    .I will start working on that.

    just a sketch I did,Ill start doing serious studies again soon.

    Hey Sergey, I saw your post on IAC's forums. Good stuff altogether and your sketchbook is really looking solid mate (lots and lots of studies make you a really awesome artist)
    It's weird that I never saw your sketchbook before on CA, I didn't think there were many Israelis around (well I know of one another guy who isn't that active anymore).
    Keep going, I subscribed to your SB

    Great portrait here ! I don't know what you look like but judging from your other works I'll bet it's really close. Keep it up.

    Nice to be back, Gray, and good job on the portrait. Easiest way to clean your edges is to up the contrast between your values where you want sharper edges, like the right cheek against the background. In your portrait they're both at around a 5-6 in greyscale, so they're not differentiating from one another very well. That's usually why you'll see the shadow side of a painted portrait against a lighter background and the lit side against something dark.

    Edit - quick paint-over (hope you don't mind) to show what I mean , since it's a lot easier to see than just read about it. Obviously you'd take this further than what I would do in 5 minutes or so, but it's just to give you an idea.

    Hello mate, solid works . You are doing good work improving your values, keep up understanding light and you will keep filling the puzzle. It seems that you can sense form very well and that will help when you are going to relate a lightsource to polygons/planes of a surface to assign the according values.
    Keep up the good work
