    LOOOOVEEEE this one
    http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y95...akugaki122.jpg
    and the last ones have nice spark as well, good experiment
    with pop art kinda colors, I wish I had some criticing...but so good
    so far your doing all that I belive you need to do to improve...
    about the gouache painting, the eyes look missaligned, the left
    eye from our point of view is to close to the nose, and the distinction
    betewen ligth and darks could be more clear as now it all looks to gray,
    wich flatens the volumen, make sure you try to find that form-core
    shadow mate, ill make your rendering more solid, on the expresion
    deparment I have no complains, good grin, a little introspective,
    and maybe a little angry.
    Thats about it, just keep the goodness coming your one heck of
    an inspiration I look at you thread all the time!!!
    GREAT LINE WORK!!!!!
    :EDIT:
    Oh I forgot, good non ref page....nice clear descriptive lines...
    I think I just learned a few good tricks just by waching

    All the other stuff is great too, wonderful variety. Im not sure if i like the position of legs in your chars ... a bit thin and spread try changing em and making more natural. Otherwise - the coolies! Keep em coming!

    Cheers for the replies!

    RES: Thanks, Ryan! As for tips, most of the time I try and put down a circle for the head, a gesture line and a perspective line for the shoulder and go from there. I think I remember Andrew Ley saying that you should think of the shoulders and hips like axles and attach everything onto that. That's a pretty handy thing to remember. Try and think in terms of volumes all the time as well. Don't know if that's helpful at all...

    newman: 'Badass'? Heheh. cheers, Ben. Update yer book already!

    Maxetormer: Cheers for the excellent crits. You're right about the eye and I can't tell you how much that bugs me now! And yeah, my tonal range still sucks. I'm not popping things out. Yet... Thanks again, man.

    fooxoo: Thanks. I'l try and pay more attention to the legs.

    It'd be rude to post without art so here's some much needed head practice. I've been a bit sloppy with my construction lately, so tried to made sure these looked more solid:


    Have a good weekend, all!

    Ta, Nick.

    Good evening,

    Here's some stuff from the past few days:

    Doodle from yesterday:

    Quickish paintjob over another doodle:

    A bunch more quick
    colour studies. Trying to implement colour theory and memorise palettes as I go:




    Some more non-ref gestures:


    That's all for now.

    Cheers, Nick.

    I muchos dig your gestures in this and the update and the one prior. Theyre so movey and swooshy. Or something. In particular (this update) i like the women in the center.

    Oh man i gotta go back to studying anatomy, ive not done that seriously since... er.. my headphones broke and i cant listen to my mp3 player in my room. I have a bad habbit when drawing figures atm, most notably on females is really broad shoudlers and i never place the circle of the head in the right place... and its normally too small. Meh, must improve.

    http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y95.../practice6.jpg

    Is my favorite of your color studies so far! :o Tis nice. How long are you spending on those btw? ;o

    Cheers for the replies!

    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....




    That's all for now.

    Ta, Nick.

    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!

    nice paints too mate.

    keep goin!

    Haven't been here in a long time. I've been missing out!

    Really good stuff. Fab designs, but your faces and portraits are especially sweet. I'd probably want to see more colored pieces just to amp up the pages. But all in all, beautiful stuff.

    Cheers for the kind words!

    Cakeypigdog: Thanks buddy! I feel a bit stale in myself doing those characters. Need to leave them for a while.

    Tigermilk: Cheers!

    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!

    Ta, Nick.

    Evening All.

    Recursive_End: Cheers, fellah.

    maxetormer: Yeah, a long way to go until I can colour competently...Let's definitely OC soon.

    newman: Page ten, eh? What can I say? I've been a slack bastard with feeble excuses. And when are we going to see an update from Newman? Hmm?

    Ganbat_Bad: Means a lot, thanks. Your thread is tremendously good.

    Spade: Thanks for stopping by!

    Right. Not much worth posting. I've been pretty lame the past couple of weeks. Feel like I'm in a bit of a rut, plus had stuff to do that kept me from drawing. No excuses though, I've been really weak lately. I've been looking at a bunch of great SBs today (notably Hurricane's and Tuchten's) and thinking ' they're so prolific and busting their asses and improving all the time - you don't work hard enough, you don't deserve to get better, you lazy sack!' So yeah, if I want to improve, I really need to be more focused and start cranking more stuff out. Think I need to do more (any?) finished pieces. Doodles are all well and good for generating ideas, but I won't really test my mettle until I spend a good few hours on something working it to a finished state. Anyway, rant over. Here's a few scraps.

    Blah:


    Wonky women:


    I'll update again when I have something a bit more worthy.

    Ta, Nick.

    man, im sorry i havent been here in so long. lovin the environments, truly. your color stuff is kickin soooo much bootay, and takin names too. non-ref figures, you might wanna work a little more on the upper arm and on the shoulder-chest attachment, cause im seein thats a lot of times what is wonky with your characters. that and relative arm sizes (like in the bottom left guy on the last page from sep. 1st, and on sep. 28th's top middle girl on the "wonky women" page). keep watchin out for that. lookin forward to the non-ref enviros as well. take care dude, and, try not to stay away so long this time. and ill try to do the same.

    Cheers for all the kind words! Been in a bit of a slump lately (happens to me about every other week at the moment!) and the encouragement really does spur me on in my darker moments.

    arechiga_tony: Many thanks!

    Unbreakable: Sankyuu!

    GOBLINSHARK: Thanks for stoppin' by. You're right about the construction - I need to start taking the stabilizers off. You've got some great looking work in your book.

    MonkeYoakum: If I inspired you to go draw than that's forkin excellent!

    Sinix: Hey! It's a reall pleasure to have you in my little book. I love your SB - would kill to have your looseness and expressiveness. Any chance of an update soon?

    purb36: Great to see you in here again, man. Thanks for the valuable crits - your really on point with those. I'll definitely bear them in mind next time I'm drawing figures. I'll try to keep updating so long as I feel like I'm improving...

    Here's a couple of bits from today.

    Firstly some little post-it doodles with the brushpen while I tried to recover from a hangover. Bleurgh...

    Then, I quite liked the little tank thingy so I blocked out a rough model in Maya and then painted over the top a la Hawkprey. I've never done any vehicle stuff really so it was good fun to try something different. Will definitely try working this way again.


    That's all for now. More when I have it.

    Cheers, Nick.
