    Good stuff Aleksander ! Petter says hello BTW

    The latest face is very nice, the cheek and general face area is really well performed, you got tired on the rest of the pic ?

    crits on the Life studies:

    1. you have to use the whole paper, try to use as much space as possible, leave like 2 cm or something at the top and bottom, the rest should include the WHOLE figure ! WHOLE FIGURE !!

    2. Dont be afraid of shading it alot, try to think that the brightest part on the models body should be paper white, the rest has a value, even if the pose is a fast one, you should try to give the forms volume, with shadows aswell as lines.

    3. Lines are getting better and better, you know what i said before so i dont need to comment on your line quality, its going better and better though, great job!

    4. There is alot of ways to draw a naked person, try as many ways as possible... different media, but IMHO keep working with the pencil mostly... with it, it shows your abilities at the current level the best (IMO)

    finnishing note, try to give the body more volume, the elbow on one of yours (this one : http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v483/Profil/51.jpg) try to give the whole body the same volume !

    ill try to find some example ( i dont have any new ones, so im kinda talking shit here, because i havent drawn a live model for atleast a year...i'll edit soon)

    EDIT

    (example : http://www.rainysaturday.com/Hurricane/nude.jpg , see how i (its OLD sorry!) how there is alot of different volume? anyways, just food for thought)

    /EDIT


    GREAT JOB THOUGH !

    cheers !

    hmm, i think you need to work more on the life drawings try different way on, putting them down, whether it be with lines, or strictly shading, maybe even watercolour, or some other paint, charcoal too?

    I think you should start putting in shapes (cylinders, circles, and boxes) so you can start measureing your proportions and poping out your drawings...give it some love.

    What i ment, by that was, Instead of drawing all your figures in pencil, using lines, like outlining them. Try using charcoal, or the side of your pencil, and just setting the tonal values down, kinda like shading it in in a way, with no lines. So you start to understand the form better. Also with watercolour, or acrylic/oil etc.. You can understand form as well, as you are filling it all in. Not just outlining your subject. I would try with the charcoal first though, or atleast get it with a drawing media, before you attempt painting the subjects.

    Also take the advice above as well, draw big, on big sheets of paper. You can get a roll of like 50 sheets for like 2 bucks, at your figure drawing class im sure, i know i did. Build the shapes, with cylinders etc, as well, and then block in the form/shading. Dont be afraid to shade darker.

    As for your latest work and some of your other work, i have noticed, you have a sketchy, kind of hairy look to your lines, get rid of this. Try to make your lines as smooth as possible. No hair. Draw with your arm, rather than your wrist. For the detail on a head, or something smaller, draw with your arm also, this will make it easier to draw with your arm later on. Then if you want to add smaller details you can use your wrist/hand to draw with. Another thing, it looks like you just wanna get through a page quickly, and just quickly draw, the things onto the page, and its done and you move onto the next subject. I understand this for figure drawing, but if you are copying something else, slow down a bit, take your time, focus. The results will be much more promising. Same goes with figure drawing, even though, you have to draw something within, 1 min, focus on your subject, rather than, having to feel rushed, you will eventually get faster at doing this, and your work will turn out better.

    Keep up the great work Its looking good. What i would like to see from you the most is better shading, get your lights/darks down. DONT BE AFRAID TO SHADE! Again, with your shading, you shading looks kinda hairy. Try not to make it like this, but smoother looking/less flat. If your subject it round, shade with the subject, not flat lines across a round object, that will only make it flat. And all of the above would be good to keep in mind. Wow this is along post. See you around.

    Justin.

    Dude! You've been posting you ass off! I feel so lazy right now!
    You coming to cafe string at the end of may as well?
    I'm with both JustinBeckett and Hurricane here, the pencil shows your abilities, but try some other media as well when your doing life-studies. I like charcoal when I'm doing lifestudies like that, 'cuz it lets me get down the big shapes quickly, and the shading is so fast, you just put down a FAT line, and you get to see more form faster. By all means! Continue with the pencil as well, but you should try some other stuff in addition. Expands yer horizon

    That last OC-sketch kicks ass!!! The part under his nose needs to be a bit bigger, but other than that; kick-ass!!!

    The latest pencil-portrait looks promising as well!

    Hell man, I so agree with dCept!
    Great OC pic, love his eye.
    Swed: Var försiktig med näshålan dock, som bör vara en aning mer avlång.

    Great improvment, really inspiring.

    The OC is good
    The third picture needs to be finished, do make sure that the eyes are in line though (pet problem of mine, too)
    Second Picture: Looks like you're good on the individual parts of the face, now just to put it together

    Hey dude, this last post is cool, not to shabby, it is better, than the other ones by far. Oh yeah and your welcome for the post...forgot to say that

    Anyways, when shading, try not to shade alll one tone, i see you did that on the face of your last post. Try shading with atleast 5 different tones. Find your light source, and go from there.

    hey profil, noice stuff, your getting better and it shows. Something that you should work on is use lines of action to put a little motion and attitude into your drawings. On the faces, the eyes look really flat, curve the guideline more so your eyes are not completely straight across. Your line of directions on your sketches are getting better, keep it up. More drawings please.

    -Rob

    You should try, doing different facial poses, as most of yours are front view, or side...

    I just looked at your entire sketchbook and you have made some great progress. Like others, I suggest tryig to incorporate smoother, flowing lines. It's also important to see the shape state of whatever form you are drawing. keep that in mind. Great work, keep up the dedication!

    Hey hey! Glad to see you're working on stuff, keep practicing your 3/4 face views! In particular, make sure your eyes are on that imaginary line that keeps them from looking off.

    Kudos on the big update! On your heads, I think what would really help them is to master the basic constuction of the head. The loomis book about drawing the head is really useful for that purpose, you should look into it. Alot of artists make the mistake of just drawing the outline of the head, which makes it difficult to draw from imagination from any angle. Hope you get what I'm saying Keep up the good job.

    dan: yeah Im getting you, I really gotta do more loomis studies.

    Darkarts: thanks

    Didn´t feel like drawing to much today, but a self-potrait and a warmup before that.

    SUCKAGE because I should really think more about construction, thats why there is some skulls there etc

    Hi Profil

    Nice progress.

    You got Bridgman so I suggest you to check out the blocked construction of the head...and draw (don't imagine) a cube and some construction lines and then draw the head inside the cube...I've recently started to practice a little using this method and so far it has helped me to better understand how to get the different planes correct and getting better volume in the heads I draw. Simpler than Loomis construction..personally I prefer Bridgman. So I guess Bridgman might help you too.

    Anyway I guess I'll be meeting you and the others in Stockholm gonna be great 8)

    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    Lots of updates... -_-; I'm so behind.

    Anyway, I noticed that when you do general face shapes, you used curved lines, but when you do details or quick, full body studies, your lines get choppy and stick-like. You might want to keep in mind that while the male body is ok angular, most females have curving bodies (unless they're super anorexic thin)
