This is based on a holocaust photo featuring a giant pile of bodies. It took 20 min just to block it! It was VERY HARD for me, but I'm not unhappy with it. What we are seing is a tiny 'finished' corner, the blocked image is about 400 by 300.
Based on online photo
Photoshop 6.0 with mouse, 1hr

wowow, didnt notice you had started a thread! your buddy is right, you'll get better if you do it on a daily basis. id almost suggest that you work in value, just to get a hang of that first...working with color is a whole new animal. i'm curious how much of the photograph you rely on, but you're getting something out of it. in 3 pictures you look more confident. if you need any help or anything, feel free to ask.
going to sketch night tonight?!?!?! 5 hours away!!!
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
SHIT MAN joust !!!! one of my all time favoirt games !!!! did thay make a recent one ? wow hehe
yah like jp said do it every day and you will see real improvement . with in a year you will be verry satifyed im shure . dont forget the good old pencil and pen and a nice sheet of paper )
I am not aware of a recent Joust, but Midway has released an 'Arcade Treasures' which has lots of emulated games, including Joust. It also has original concept art, interviews with the creators, and other good stuff. I highly recommend it, I have it for the Gamecube and it is very satisfying.
