    Oh and Gilead, that color and design project was kinda cool. I was done with india ink and used point, line and plane to create shape and volume. I will probably try a couple more of those as I enjoyed doing it, even though I didn't like the time constraints.

    Ok, so even though I haven't put many things into my sketchbook lately, I have been working on things. I have been doing alot of exercises and trying different media and techniques, but most shouldn't be in here cause they suck or are just excercises. But, here is a fan sketch of a Paul Kidby character and also, per Gilead's request, I stuck some daily (not quite) painting in here.

    Well, I started my girl a day studies since it is good to draw what you are interested in. My goal here is to become more proficient in drawing human anatomy accurately and quickly. So here are the first three. The first two just kinda shook the cobwebs out.

    Horrible face on this one and her right arm is too thin.

    hey, I'm always up to looking at female sketches... hell I'm up to looking at females in general But seriously, the face of the first one is the best out of all. Here is my suggestion on sketching bodies (and can be applied to most) When sketching the body finalize the line by sketching one continuous neat line. Commit to the line and your sketches will be much cleaner. Now I may not have the best technique but I usually use a 6h pencil to rough out my idea. Once I have the shapes down I go back with an HB or darker pencil and tighten the lines down before shading. Let me know if that helps out or if you find a better technique. I'll be checking back

    Just to mix things a bit, here is my first attempt at colored pencils from class.

    Next one. I made a finder as Loomis suggests to try to get proportions mapped out more quickly. It seems to have helped a bit.

    The lines of on your last post are nicely done. Her head is a bit small. The hair that is falling over her left shoulder should show a bit more thickness. Right now you have the hair sharing the same line as the shoulder. Keep up the great work.

    Nice stuff you have going there, love the line, point, plane project.

    I think maybe drawing life and keep working anatomy might be a good thing. Find all the boring ref's you can find and start working.

    Thanks for stopping by Sorknes. Some people like flowers, some people like landscapes. I like people so yes, I will continue to work on anatomy. I have alot of dull AND interesting references, so I will get to work. Here is another femal anatomy. I was looking over Loomis while I was rendering this one.

    I decided to do some bone studies. Here are some of the chest and shoulder.

    I noticed in the bone studies a tendency to drift to the left as you move downwards. Try drawing a vertical line through your shape at the beginning. Use a ruler and measure from the edge of the page if you must. Do this even on your girly drawings. If you can, draw a coresponding line on your refference pic. This way as you draw you have a constant refference point telling you if the figure is balanced or if you are remaining where you intend to be.

    G, Now that I look at them more closely, I see that you are absolutely correct. I am left handed, so I have to assume that it is causing the drift. I will make an effort to resolve that in the future.

    I have gotten a number of "draw from life more" statements, as probably has everyone. I understand the statement, hoever, I live in the northeast. In winter you never see anyone unless they are bundled up. Any idea on how to learn to draw anatomy when you don't get to actually see any?

    Here are two more female anatomy drawings. The first one had comp issues with paper positioning and arms still seem to give me a bit of trouble.

    Also, going by what Gilead said in his thread, it is hard to get people to look when it isn't posted inn the finally finished section. I have never posted anything in that area because I never felt what I did was good enough. But I wanted to do a more complete work. My wife loves monarch butterflies and has even raised them, so I did this one for her, based on a photo ref. This was done in Prismacolor colored pencils, which I need much more work in.

    Hey how's it goin. You know I've gotten a few "draw from life" statements as well but like you I don't normally see too much skin here in the Northwest either. I like to sketch from photos myself. It's the next best thing to a live model. Great work on the Monarch.

    Sounds like you're going to have to bribe your wife into a photo session. Practice saying these lines: "Honey I promise nobody will EVER see these but us." and "The internet?! I'd never DREAM of posting these on the internet."
    Good luck and let us know how it works out.

    Well, since I have been obsessed with painting lately, it seems that my sketching has been taking the brunt of it. So I decided to do some quick sketching with charcoal to try to loosen up some. Here are two master work copies from Renoir.

    Hey I'm glad to see you updating again. I hope this will be an ongoing habit Nice work, you're right, got to get back into the groove of pencils again. You've got some nice poses for your anatomy works, really like this one: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...irportrait.jpg

    Hope you continue to post some pencils and such for us!

    Oh so you're one of those guys who thinks that working ang practicing is more important than posting stuff on the internet? Well I never!
    Hey those Renoir studies have lots of feeling to them. I find that charcoal is more like painting than drawing. Especially if you use conte crayons and stuff.

    DC, I just don't know what I'm doing. I am studying my ass off trying to become a good painter. I am happy that I will finally get to show some of it off in person. My show is in two weeks. Here is the finsihed portrait, along with the two other paintings that are finished.



    Lighting is everything. Check these out. Same pics, different light.






    Gilead, don't worry about me. I'm just slacking like the rest of you guys...

    Oh, here is more Renoir and a life study I got at the book store.




    This was apparently "Lord Robert"

    Cobi,
    Since the beginning of the year, I have been studying painting with Michael Molnar. He is fantastic and teaches based on the Old Masters, so I have been learning an aweful lot and simply trying to apply it.

    Fine work with http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...potpourri1.jpg and
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...racesketch.jpg
    Love the values in this. Super work.

    This one has the best face of all: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...2/DSCF4522.jpg Just need to get a broader range of values in there. You have been busy. Great updates On some of your faces you seem to be having the same trouble I am with the features not lining up correctly. I'm still struggling with all that as well. But at any rate it would seem that your hard work and studies has improved your paint skills tremendously. I love them all!!

    It's good to see your progress. I just wished you posted more often. No problem, I'll take what I can get Patiently waiting for your next update.

    These are definitely cool!! Love the mood and tone of the last post. Your faces look better on these. One crit is the overly white eyes in the 2nd piece. Probably need a tiny bit more shading to not make them stand out so much. But I'm really impress by the progress with these and especially your paintings!! Yes definitely keep up the hard work you've been doing.
