    Thanks Abra, any progress in my work is directly related to the inspiration I've gotten from this site... goodstuff!!!

    This image is my first attempt at a digi-paint. I'm getting used to painter and I'm falling in love w/ my Wacom (got it last night). More to come soon, I'll be spending alot of time on the tablet this weekend!!!

    my book

    Just messing around w/ Digital. Mostly done in Painter. Painter feels so natural to me that I don't see how or why anyone would use Photoshop as their primary digi-painting ap... and I've been using PS for years.

    my book

    A lame speed painting from still-life next to my monitor. I'm trying to get a grip on color in my digital painting and it's frustrating. Any tips are welcome.

    Hola, I'm liking the new things uve been posting.. your graphite drawings are great, the ps things are looking nice as well (the robot is my favorite). The gesture drawings are looking nice, I would suggest trying to do many of these and also studying bones/muscles. Keep it up!

    my book

    Tonight's sketch, kinda weak, I might paint it.

    Thanks Abra.

    I agree w/ you. And I am still studying anatomy and reading several books. I don't upload all of my sketchbook, I have several pages of studies that I haven't posted. As soon as the honeymoon phase of my Wacom wears off I will get back to the drawing board (literally) and keep up w/ the figure/anatomy studies hardcore.

    Man, I LOVE your insect studies. Especially the Cicada Killer, it is very nice. Love the medium you chose for it as well. Your drawings from life are excellent. Also your animal drawings are very realistic. I love the soft shading on the cat.

    I think the only thing I see that you could work on is anatomy. It just takes a long time to master. I'm still working hard to improve my anatomy. It looks like you're already on your way to improving your anatomy!

    I really like your sketchbook and you can expect me to be checking back often!

    Later

    Nealo, Thanks! I'm still practicing all of the basics. I just picked up Loomis' "Drawing the Head and Hands" today from the library, so I'm in for a week of frustrating figure and anatomy studies... yay.... blah

    Ender, Thanks, the compliment means alot coming from you. I dig your work shitloads!

    Johnny, yeah, everyone seems to dig my aminals! After I finish up on another phase of studies I want to do some hellafied creature mixes from animal refferences. I think my style really lends itself to those.

    3 more hours till I can go home and draw!

    my book
    Quickie skull study from a few weeks ago
    my book
    Quickie little Loomis style hedz. I've got pages and pages of these, and unfortunately they all suck... I'm trying to get the system down but it's taking a while.
    my book
    I do better when I draw them a little bit bigger. Top 2 Heads drawn using Loomis' technique and copied the Basic and Secondary Planes of the Head drawings directly from the book.

    my book
    Start of shaaithy heads, then halfway through I realize that I should just focus on drawing the shape of the head, and leave out all of the details for now....
    my book
    I think I'm focusing on the right steps for now. Once i can build the basic shape of the head facing any direction w/out ref (I'm almost there) I'll start with more details and further development of the planes of the face/head.

    Nice work Bennett, your figures are really coming along (maybe practice a little more on the feet...), but you're nailing those little gestures and I can see that your starting to focus on the anatomy.
    I also like your creatures! Your stippling is really great. I know it's tedious, but I's like to see more! Check out www.alexmurawski.com, he was one of my teachers and made his career stippling, a great inspiration!
    Awesome work! Keep it up!

    Thanks Keepiru.. I used to stipple alot when I was younger. I could establish lots of tonality changes w/ a pen and I liked that. I kind of think of it as cheating for some reason in my twisted head.

    That guys' work is amazing. I'd like to try adding color to some pen stippling drawings. I'll give it a shot.

    Here are some quick animal gestures and the lineart of some type of snakebot I came up w/

    That cat was the killer-shit. I see a lot of improvement, I must say. You've really done your homework, so it will be interesting to see what else you bring to the table!

    He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
    but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.

    Starting over.

    Char: Thanks for the compliment, and no doubt I will keep up w/ the studies. I just to break away every so often to do something funner.

    Kline: Thanks man, I love the animal studies, and thanks for noticing I've that I've been drawing my ass off. I had so many roadblocks in my skills before I started posting a sketchbook here, and now it seems to all be coming together. I hope I keep it up.

    Here's a WIP of the snakebot

    Thanks Cap! You deserve credit, w/ being one of my biggest teachers and inspirations. Hopefully after I knock out some bills, groceries and such tonight I can spend some more time on figure studies and some snakebot painting.

    hey i can really see tons and tons of improvement in your understanding of anatomy as I look over the start to more recent work you've posted here. I also noticed that you spend a great deal of attention on light source and value, which I also need to do. keep up the great work!

    my book
    Quickie features study, probably 3 or so minutes each body part at first. I'm not to proud of the last few lips on the page, but they were probably about 30 sec. each. Trying to losen up and capture the form w/out spending too much time worrying about details and erasing everything.

    After doing some nose/eye/lips studies I decided to finish off some decent head studies I started a while back. I'm getting there.

    hello bennett

    u posted serious studies and works,
    u good student of the CA

    u really progress, i'm very hapy to see many ca members improving in this forum
    ( and very quickely, perhaps more than in school cause they are motivated)

    but i got some question for u:

    i seen your first pic, very good inking pic, can u tell about pens used and your experience with them.

    i seen u're using tinted paper (is it canson ?) and chalk
    are u taking the chalk like charcoal
    i'm very interested in using sanguine, chalk and charcoal on tinted paper



    good luck CA member
