    StephanDraws - Thank you very much for the feedback. It means a lot.

    fefe73 - Aw cheers man. You are very kind!
    I hope to get back to life drawing soon. Lots going on in 'life' just now, difficult to fit the 'drawing' part in!

    Along side the level up work I have been starting to think about adding value and forms to some of the silhouettes recently though. I am finding imagining the construction very challenging but lots of fun. Never very sure if I should be looking up or down at a ribcage and pelvis. Any tips on this would be hugely welcomed! Will hopefully keep working these up soon but probably going to spend more time on the level up studies for now.
    Thanks again for looking anyway..

    I was tempted to post this in the critique forum but maybe best to wait till bit more finished looking?

    The last post is great! A great exercise and thinking it through shows in your shading! It is coming along for you really well. From my opinion maybe there is a little bit too much top view of the pelvis in them. But then again, these bones are in real life a little bit like a bowl tilted to the front. If that makes any sense. Solid work here! If you don't mind I might give this exercise a try, too.

    Sixten - Thanks man, that's very kind. Yes I think you are right, I have rotated the pelvis a little to far towards the viewer. I find perspective really tough, especially on figures so it was a very useful exercise. I would heartily recommend it. I actually worked through a few different options for each one and settled on the ones that felt most right (Eg. See below). Still not very sure though!

    I suppose construction is something we should be thinking about when building up silhouettes from imagination to get more accurate poses, it should probably be done first actually. I tend to worry too much about the overall shapes and forget about the forms.

    And of course I don't mind you trying it! I cant wait to see what you come up with but I am sure it will be ace Thanks again for the feedback dude..

    Thought since I have reached number ten in composition 1.1 I would throw up my progress so far..

    Started off just trying to match rough shapes and values and looking at basic planes before I got into more detailed stuff. First one or two were closer to the hour mark while number ten was nearing 10 hours..Been a great experience so far. I think I am improving my rendering and photoshop skills and it has been amazing studying art history again.

    These all need tightened up and I didnt really go back in after Jasons feedback, just took it forward to the next one. I think I will make some changes to the last Raeburn as I have invested so much time in it. Plus who doesnae like a good sporran!

    Off for a couple of weeks in a few days so this is me for a wee while.
    Thanks again for looking if you have been!

    Been on holiday for a couple of weeks, so just playing with some abstract brushes over the last couple of lunch breaks then added some colour and hints of lighting.
    Thought one or two of them turned out quite nice anyway!

    Hey Scott I am so glad you posted in my little book because I have really enjoyed looking through yours. What a great range and variety you already have. I think you have it all going on and that you are doing all the right things. Just don't stop or overthink anything too much. I know I am going to be looking forward to your posts.

    wow. thanks for all the comments folks. Its very encouraging and very nice of you all. Feel guilty for not posting for 3 weeks!

    Busy time at the moment though, trying to get a job in England, getting a job in England, trying to find somewhere to live, not finding anywhere to live!

    Been briefly trying to experiment with one of my older thumbnails, playing with different brushes and attempting different views etc. These are pretty embarrassing, especially that terrible dome head thing on the first one. Some glass studies required I think! Occurred to me after the side view that the design was that great after all and fundamentally he was missing a head. Hence bottom right, so might play around with him some more with an actual head!
