    Women!!

    The figures are good but could do with some more definition, a bit more contrast
    especially in the area of the breasts .... they look too configured
    if you know what I mean
    apart from that ... man you been working hard good way to go.

    Maybe you need to tone down the similarity in the women. Make them alive.


    Your later work shows great promise

    Keep at it man you are getting there

    ashemoto, Thank you. Actually I don't know exactly what you mean, but EVERYBODY mentions the breasts in some way so I'm obviously getting them wrong. Poor little me I'm gonna' have to go study breasts now.
    Were you really born in 1937? That would make you the one person on this website older than me.

    This is #103 finished. Pen and ink plus ink wash. Kinda fun to do something reckless and messy after all that tight restrained pen work.

    Hey man, great work with the pen and ink piece. There's nothing wrong with good 'ol fashion inking. Keeps everything looking clean and tight. Don't worry about the breasts, I've been "studying" them for years now and I'm still trying to improve. But I gotta say the charoal piece jumped out at me immediately. I love it! It's awesome. Everything looks so smooth and subtle. Great job with the darks. Later!

    darkchild, Boy you said it, the charcoal piece really shows how low contrast all the others are.

    This is a drawing I started about 10 years ago and never finished. I have a drawer full of stuff like that.
    I like this drawing, but it has real problems especially the face and waist. Apparently I didn't believe in eyelids back then.

    So I traced her onto a sheet of toned paper and made some corrections.

    I really dont care whether I screw it up or not.
    Yeah I like that attitude stuff seems to get better when you don't put so much pride in them at least to me

    like the see-through metal armor like # 103 he he

    Keep up them pen and ink stuff....(so when I get back to doing pen and ink you could give me pointers )

    Mindflaw, yeah I have to be carefull to not be too carefull. It's easy to get hung up on this stuff and forget that it's just exercise. None of it is supposed to be great art, just me practising so I can do great art later.

    The peekaboo armor was supposed to look embossed actually. I'll have to work on that as well.

    I'll be happy to share any pointers that I can, but for now let me reccomend a book I'm currently reading Rendering in Pen and Ink by Arthur L. Guptill. It was written in 1930, but is in re-release. You might find it at the library.

    Fellah, glad you enjoy it.

    Mindflaw, No excuses now, we'll have to figure this inking thing out or look like dummies.

    I just realized that my numbering system was off for a few days, but I fixed it now, sorry for any confusion.

    Interesting tack you've taken, using swimsuit and lingerie magazines for ref. I'm sure you've noticed the downsides (besides there being a lack of suitable swimsuit babes in accurate combat poses) such as washed out lighting and similar poses. I think your hands are still your weakest point, and then feet. A good mag to get for hands might be an entertainment magazine - those often have more interesting poses too. Just a thought... Nice work!

    Hey G,
    Just wondering...do you try to keep these sketches to a time limit? Like, do you say to yourself, I am only going to spend 30 minutes a day doing it, or do you simply put as much time in as you feel is needed. I ask because I know you have a painting thread where you use a time limit.
    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    Teigrob, Thanks for dropping by. You're right hands and feet are a real weakness. It's mostly impatience. I cant stand fiddly details anymore, I want to work big and bang out big results fast. Comes of painting murals by the square foot I suppose. I'll have to do some hand and foot studies just to discipline myself.

    hylandr2, I don't really have a time limit on these, they're just something I do in my spare time. Most often while on breasfast or lunch break in some fast food joint. I carry a sketchbook plus some partly finished sketches in a loose leaf folder with some magazine clippings of poses, costumes armor etc. So I just work on whatever appeals to me. I find that even if I'm heading off to paint a sign for a pizza shop or something it still gets my creativity flowing if I sit and do something like this for a while first.

    This is another one from my drawer full of unfinished work from 10 years ago or more. I liked the costume, but botched the face while inking and now I can see anatomy problems so it's time to re-do it. You cant really see it, but she was going to have a pet panther or something behind her.

    I couldn't find the same pose in any of my stuff and didn't want to fake it, so I'm using this pose instead, we'll see how it goes.
