    welcome. nice start for your book. About the death dealer study, Frazetta is always a good artist to be inspred by. I think my favorites are the watercolor boots, and the rats/hamsters? are very nice. keep em' coming

    nofingers: thanks man..they are gerbils my pets..i try to sketch them often..and those others are my dad's boots...(painting boots in watercolor kinda of inspires me)..i still keep and old watercolor i did back in 1986 when i was 9 years old i think ..i see it once in a while to keep inspired to keep my dream of becoming a good artist
    the_allejo's sketchbook...my atelier progress yeap those were my dad's boots 19 years ago..hehe
    here are some images from today:
    the_allejo's sketchbook...my atelier progress a master copy raphael ,kinda mess up on the eyes

    the_allejo's sketchbook...my atelier progress maybe frazetta inspired since he is one of my favorite artists too, from imagination..i think the anatomy of the horse is off..

    Nice anatomy studies! The water colour boots were really nice too - the first pair (and the second pair). The life drawings are good - the only crit there is that they're kinda lacking in tonal variations. Keep it up!

    teigrob- thanks the boots i will be doing one pair per year..hehe..i need to do one soon..is something i promised to myself to keep me going..since the first pair is what got me back to art.
    yeah my life drawings lack that because i draw at an informal place is a cafe (hey i pay only 3 bucks0..and well their illumination is poor and the poses are too quick..like 15 minutes max and is imposible to me to do tonal studies on them..i could invent my own lightning, but i do not know all the forms in the human body yet and im still practicing using shading to bring out the form..i lack that .. i will try to draw on a smaller sketchbook so i have more time for rendering see how it goes..
    oh i love your stuff i copied some of your characters..for expression studies..

    Nice painting! You have quite the handle on form and lighting. The girl though - her head looks too big for her body. That could be the way she is, and if so, I apologize!

    teigrob thanks for your comments..on the girl..well she is a 10 year old so her head is big either way..i just compared the photo of my sketch with the original..my camera distorts all of my drawings/paintings...the same goes with the boots..not even the true colors...i just want to record my progress and hear opinions..maybe she is a big headed is hard to tell the sketch looks fine..i dont but thanks either way...

    There is a big difference from having the original in front of you and seeing a scanned version on a screen. It often hurts the drawing bigtime. Maybe try and fix it a bit in Photoshop. I like the painting of the boots and the lion too. Keep it going dude!

    cool stuff

    you got some cool looking stuff. I liked the drawing of the little kid with it's head on his knees. That is a great piece. It has a meloncoly mood to it.

    Keep it up, good job

    I was about to say what fellah. said, please adjust these in photoshop after scanning/photographing- or adjust the scanning preferences, so that we can get the full effect of your work. Just go to the image menu, then adjustments, then brightness/contrast. Nice stuff, keep it up

    That's a mighty fine lookin' horse...until you get to the posterior and notice he has some muscles where he shouldn't! See the middle bulge on his haunch? It's jutting in a little too much, but if you continue that line to his back your horse would look more natural. Also, while his front legs are looking good, his hind legs are suffering from perspective problems and lack of anatomy knowledge, especially the furthest hind. It looks like you kinda rushed his hind end a bit...be careful with that! Horses, after humans, are the one animal you really can't fudge with if you're trying to represent them realistically. Study up a bit more because your rendering is top-notch and deserves to cover a solid foundation!

    thanks teigrob...i know you are the man when it comes to critiquing animals..thanks for the compliments but it is not my horse..hehe..it is after Sir Peter Paul Rubens..i like his animals so full of live and vigor..and very muscular..hehe..i agree with you i probably exagerated his drawing..the rendering again got it from his drawing which is helping me a lot..im studying my anatomy espcially the bones like you recomended in your tutorial..my perspective getting a tad better...you know is always back to the books..

    Nice work and ther seems to be a lot of progress. The colors on the paintings are very rich. Good job on them. Keep up the anatomy studies you are getting better at it.

    You do great master copies and I love your face and animal sketches. Your painting of the boots is very nice too. I think you draw really well, the challenge will be to put your knowledge to the test to apply what you know into your non reference peices. I've found this extremely challenging. I see you've done some, your frazetta piece is probably your best from memory. Do more drawings from memory! I've been trying this at work and it seems to be working: Choose an area of focus, like the eye or the foot or the shoulder girdle, and do a page of studies, from anatomy books and a mirror. Then go to the next page a try to draw a figure in space from memory. Get the basic shapes down, like you say you do, and then try to recall as best you can the area that you just practiced. However, don't just try to draw that specific body part, draw the whole body to see how everything relates. I tried this, and lots of things clicked for me. Hope to see more sketches.

    Dude, your shoe paintings are the awesome! Are they oil or acryllic or what? And I ahve that painting of the cherubs. I never thought of drawing it before though.

    I like your hadn studies too, but I'd say try and generalize a weency bit more when drawing from life, get a defineable shape, and get the proportions to scale. A perfectly laid out arm does no good if it doesnt match the body it's attached too. Also, some of your facial perspective on the cherubs looks off as well. But those shoes man.. Those shoes!
