Nice creature concepts and the wood sculpture is pretty sweet. The emulation could still be pushed further, some parts are looking a bit muddy and flat. Simplify and block out shapes. The anatomy studies are looking good too. Keep it up.
omg that painting is great! keep up the colorstudies! i personaly want to see some colored P-X
yo dt, what up? i finally took a look through your whole thread; nice stuff man, it shows great improvement, so cheers to that. i like the progression in your rendering style, looks much better now than when you used to cross-hatch everything. great to see a fellow anatomy fiend on the loose. for the back, the most important muscles to know are the surface muscles, but if you can you should definitely do some life (not just book) studies to know how they look in all different positions. also, learning what each muscle actually does (i.e. its function, for example: the serratus muscles attach the ribcage and the shoulder blade and pull the shoulder blade forward, which means that they flex when the arm is raised) will help you understand how the muscles should logically be drawn in all different positions, even if a model or reference isnt available. i like the master copy you did, very nice; classy. keep on pluggin, dude; cheers.
can see that ur bro, aaron is working on a painting too good to c that ur

These are some pencil sketches are from viewing various famous paintings, some waterhouse, and a few others, I'm really liking the studies a lot. sorry I haven't updated more recently, I'm back, so more to come soon. Reason for these is my human faces are off when I draw them from my imagination, so I'm just going to draw portraits and faces while mixing it up with some creature concepts. This new sketchbooks that I drew these on didn't feeling right, the lead didn't react to the paper, so I went and got a sketchbook I'm familiar with. i'll use this sketchbook for pen sketches.
Not lookin too bad, but I do have a suggestion, especially on the faces, it might help if you draw in some structure lines, for example, draw the side plane of the face from the top of the head to the cheek to the chin. Right now it looks like some of the facial features are sliding off face in just about each one. I think you should try more on the master copy, you got some nice things going on in it.
Wooo, nice master study! Not sure if it was the intention of the original artist, but I really like the way the hair blends into the back of the couch for some reason.
The new sketches are good, but definitely not as strong as your monster concepts or anatomy studies. In most of them the eyes seem unbalanced, although I'm afraid I don't know enough to give a better crit than that >.< Lovely shading though, as always.
hey there! nice studies, i really like the drapery in the first and second one. faces seem a bit off, as was already mentioned. happens to me all the time, too. what kind of helps me is thinking about the face having a front and a side. so you can draw that lines that matt smith suggested... but i'm still trying to get that into my head, too... can you get your hands on bridgman's "heads, features and faces"? cause he explains the "planes" and perspective issues a lot... hope to see more from you soon, see ya! cheers
Man, you are on your path and it looks good
It looks, though, as if you're locked in a tiny black room where you have some 19's century painting reference book and book from there. I'd suggest going on the streets and try to catch the life where it is pulsing and moving. Make some life-drawings!
hold up ? nobody told me it's your birthday today,who's birthday is it today ? Hotcha, Well, Happy birthday . these draperies in your most recent update are looking good as well.
