    Great to see what you've been up too. The inked wolf heads are great and I always enjoy your undead animal stuff.

    Architaylor ey thanks. need to transfer that to my human drawings now!
    cw skulldog's being worked on, I will shove some progress shots up here in a little while. I have no idea why I never played with brushpens before, they're awesome fun.
    Kan ah i never got to comment on the group post! but i loved your take on chaosbeast, it's my new desktop really thinking i should redo my remake...
    Mr Alamo well if i can get your sort of energy into them, i'll be happy, thanks!
    MattGamer i really should post up the photos of the finished sculpture eh. he's a bit beaten-up looking now lol. will stop by your sb in a sec
    Onnophris cheers, I've done a bunch more black n white studies of wolves/tigers/people, will post them in a bit.
    JustinBeckett thanks, though I think I'm slow as a wet week in progress looking to change that.

    Some digital studies to start with, I am going back to basics and trying to learn from the ground up. Hopefully I am going about this the right way.

    Some quick life studies (under an hour). I seem to be having that issue with Photoshop where the save for web always darkens/oversaturates the image I've tried fixing it and read various threads but still can't seem to work that out.

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Here's two versions, one converts into sRGB in save for web, the second does not, but both still look worse than original:

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    And again:
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    I do need to work this out, it's making my coloured work look more awful. Anyway, back to some sketches:

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1
    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    Apart from that have done a lot of the usual Bridgman studies, constructions of shoulder/arm at moment. More to come

    Really nice update today. It's always nice going back to basics and seeing how well you can handle them.

    I've been doing a good bit of anatomy study myself (arms and body) over the last 2 days. I just figured out that copying the anatomy straight from a book pretty much has the same non-effectiveness for me as trying to learn history by just copying pages and pages out of a history book without actually stopping to soak things in properly.

    Just something to think about with the bridgman/anatomy studies you're doing

    Hey there,

    Your welcome, and thank you for dropping by my book. Cool new studies, but remember what you just told me, look for big shapes first. Some of the end sketches are too sketchy and un-confident, remember to stay loose, keep your lines consistent, work in the big shapes. To me it looked like you went, etch etch etch, not swoosh. So start swooshing, and keep a balance, not rushing to much, but also practicing speed.

    Justin

    Justin yeah funny how I can never seem to take my own advice! Heh heh heh. I seem to have that old habit of chickenscratch sketching and trying to put too much detail in but completely missing the important parts of making the drawing working on it though.

    Paulie I agree totally. I'm finding it better doing Bridgman constructions, and then straight after applying those principles to both quick and long studies off of photographs and life to get the idea cemented in. Hopefully this is the right way to go about it


    Haven't scanned any of my studies yet, but here's a colour study from a film still for now. Focusing more on colour and form than getting an exact likeness.

    Fin - 1 APR 11 - x1

    I am trying to do a 1 hr daily digital study thing, seems to be sticking so far Will scan sketchpages later.

    Ahoy, cool new piece. Also I just re looked at your gesture drawings, you said you weren't loose enough, are you sure? Your gestures look crazy good man!

    Justin heh I guess it's more I feel like i'm not swooshy enough with the pencil when sketching, though using the blunt angle seems to be improving that a little

    Oh snap, you're getting serious with the studies.

    Photoshop problem: Color profiles are a nightmare. Don't research it, your brain will thank me.
    Check what color profile you have on your monitor, I think web browsers (firefox at least) use sRGB, so that's what I set my monitor profile to, and also what I would use in photochop.

    Unless you're saving GIF, don't bother with save for web, it just rapes the colors.

    EDIT: Just as a side note, I wouldn't worry too much about how colors show up in the browser coz' everybody has different monitors and different settings,
    so no matter what you do, no two people are gonna see the same thing.
    It's only color management for printing that you should worry about.

    Hey iolarnula!

    Looks like you've been up to a lot of similar things as me this week! (Colour studies and anatomy studies of the arm).

    Looks like you're trying to introduce a bit of confidence in your line work in those anatomy studies to but like me I still end up getting a bit 'scratchy' with my lines if I don't concentrate!

    How do you find you are getting on with drawing the arms from different angles from imagination?

    Do you work or intern at Rockstar??

    Nice studies too! Your lines are more descriptive than they were before, and I think you could work even more on that. I've been looking at Sargent's stuff recently and noticing amazing his lines are: link. I think if you tried emulating the descriptiveness yet cleanness/simpleness of his lines you'd level up!

    Also, maybe doing some gestures? A lot of your sketches seem focused on anatomy and contour; doing gestures could help put that mass on a stable posture/frame/action.

    Keep it up.

    'sup kids. Been doing some freelance recently and finding a balance, here's to progress I hope.

    Hunterrr yeah, I also think I use too many dark values a lot, and as a result they shift to that end when viewed in a web browser. Like you said though, only really matters for printing eh
    Paulie I think it's my tendency to overdraw that can bugger my studies up sometimes too, need to view things more as shapes than collections of lines. Trying to do this in studies recently and it's different but hopefully will help me improve.
    Justin arms are awesome be dropping by yer book soon
    oren90 ey thanks!
    YihyoungLi heh no I don't intern at Rockstar, I just put stickers on my sketchbooks to differentiate them, and that one got this old Rockstar sticker hanging around. Thank you for posting that Sargent sketch, it's exactly what I've been looking to work towards! So much to learn...
    Konstruktion cheers, I must do more

    Nice SB; Pencils are shaping up really really well - loads of progress in a short time. Trim your linework a little I think - you can do more with less if you spend more time thinking about every line you draw. I think the trick is getting fast at good drawing, not getting good at fast drawing (if that makes any sense).

    Speedies need some depth - they're on the right track, but with environments add some aerial perspective and stronger shapes and textures to add subtle contrasts.

    Impressed though, givin' ya the vote of confidence>

    really like those small commissions from a while ago and this sketchbook generally is looking really good! Like the value/intensity studies - something I should do far more of myself when I can eventually get around to it! Keep posting those pencil works and I'm definitely gonna come back to check out your progress!

    By the way.. your animal work is incredible!

    wheeeeeeeeeeee studies are what progress you in leaps and bounds. try to see the thing you are studying in your mind, in 3d, then copy it down. try this technique when you're bored searching for the lines. you'll start to think 3d rather than in contours. keep it up, i like those commissioned pieces... they show you can do different styles other than your own. and open a box of wide possibilities for you to use in the future. cheers!

    Ivan Turcin thank you, he's a character I'm fleshing out at the moment, one of my oldest.
    aismira heh yeah I think I draw them too much sometimes!
    Brendan N that makes sense. I have an ADD hand which I'm trying to slow down more, but it's hard to break old habits eh. See you round.
    ThomasM I'll see what I can do :p
    MattGamer hopefully I can wean myself out of line-dependence, cheers!


    I listen to a lot of music when I'm working. So I figure I'll start posting some with each update. This one's appropriately themed:


    Just a quick update, I haven't got time to scan all my pencil pages yet, so here's a digital study.
    Oh-Dee-Ess-Tee! Looking at colours and value. 2 hours on and off from a reference photo (here):

    Some music first, I think I will make this a regular thing


    Thanks Matt. Few more pages and some experiments, going to try and paint under/over more of my sketches, can't hurt right?

    Stuck in a doctors' waiting room last week, lucky I had the little sketchbook with me...
