Jackwhat: Thanks, man. I've been trying to get more dynamism and flow into my figures so I'm glad that's coming across. In terms of studying anatomy, I've found it takes constant study and practice in order to improve and to memorise new and moer detailed information. And if you've identified where you're going wrong then that's half the battle won. Just concentrate on correcting those errors whenever you draw figures until you've killed that particular bad habit. With the colour studies, they're about 30 mins on average. Some a bit longer, but generally getting quicker as I've got a bit more confident with colours.
Kalango: Thanks very much!
rblitz7: Ta! Nowhere near where I want to be with my figures, but making progress and that's what matters.
Here's a few bits and pieces:
Some doodles in Painter:
Quite liked the insect one so had a go colouring it:
Generic doodles. These are getting a bit stale:
Couple more colour studies. I need to start testing myself by doing some non-ref environments....
cool stuff nick, the doodles really are not getting old mate: the improvement may seem subtle but the sophistication you are acheiving in your faces and char designs is really something in the last few sheets.
good to see you playing areound with a wider variety of stuff. love the beatle thingy!
Cakeypigdog: Thanks buddy! I feel a bit stale in myself doing those characters. Need to leave them for a while.
Jens: Thanks man! Really like your book too. You've come on in leaps and bounds since I saw your stuff at the workshop (You remember chatting and doodling with me a bit?). Paris? Gawd, I wish. I live in Nottingham which is regularly voted the worst/most dangerous place to live in the UK...
lukavi: Wow! Thanks a ton for checking out my little book. I'm a hooge fun of your stuff. Yeah, I definitely want to do more colour stuff - just need to build up my confidence a bit.
Blahm: Thanks! I find drawing straight on the computer a bit tough as well, but the charcoal pencil brush in Painter 9 feels very analog and satisfying to me. Check it out.
Here's a quick update. A couple of thumbnails for the CHOW. Didn't really follow the brief very well. Just drew some robots. Which is nice:
Have a good weekend all!
