    Matt Smith - thanks for the advice and yep you are absolutely right on the rushing part; really have the problem of getting a bit impatient with a drawing sometimes.. especially one I don't like. luckily, though, these pencil renderings are forcing me to take my time and be patient. gotcha on the face planes and skull studies as well, definitely something I work on.

    hpslashluvr - lol I hope this isn't my signature style; not satisfied with it! as for paper and pencil, I mostly use a 2B and the paper is in my Strathmore Sketch book; says paper is acid free, medium weight, lightly textured... lol. and ya know on the sphere I have tonight I DID lift my pencil between strokes, which probably didn't help! lol thanks for the advice and comments either way though

    glikster - thanks man saw your blog on the community area; sucks that they moved you and you can't used those programs again would say try to get them on your home computer if you can (unless that is your home comp, in which case I'm sorry )

    alright a sphere drawing (attempted at least) and a quickly done Ingres drawing study.

    amazing how much the lines show up when it's blown up a bit; also my scanner likes showing the grain alot more it seems

    and the study

    hola everyone, still workin away at this shading thing. got two things today, both tonal drawing attempts and both of crumpled up pieces of paper. didn't do any line art before shading on these so let me know what you guys think.

    this attempt was going well (in my opinion at least) until I yawned and moved the piece of paper I was drawing teaches me to use small, light objects in a still life.

    Onir's sketchbook (ended)

    spent a long time on this next one over 2 days; really wanted to get used to shading evenly and lightly so I just took my time. I like the way it came out except for the proportions of it. I guess because I did it over 2 days on and off I kept changing my vantage point slightly and messed it up alot; that's the main reason why I didn't finish the bottom right up, should be longer out.

    alright be back with more soon

    Yo Onir,

    last two life studies are tons better than the earlier bandage one. You got rid of most of the heavy outlining and the shading is much more subtle. Shadows are a little "blobby" though, doesn't look like they were cast by the light/object.

    careful on those spheres. Your reflected light in the shadows is as bright as your highlights facing the lightsource. That's only possible if the object is generating its own lights.

    whoa! tons better! and btw i'm not saying you HAVE to make your shading incredibly smooth...cuz of course if you always have perfect drawings it's sort of boring...just a nice exercise though sometimes...

    try using an ebony or something, it'll make blacker blacks and shading is a lot easier/faster. some of those 2B pencils don't shade very well for some reason, but yeah i use them too anyways ^^

    btw for things like paper, you can get away with shading really rough. in fact you might prefer to instead cuz of the hard edges in paper...maybe save the soft shading for something like hair or a cup. (because in this industry, all you'll be drawing is hair and tea cups...right.)

    good values...like Emily said, you may want to up the contrast even more, depending on the lighting...

    machzero - thanks, yea I agree on the shadows, made them very rounded and biomorphic; definitely didn't fit too well with the object being drawn. good point on the sphere as well, gonna make sure I remember that.

    hpslashluvr - I'd say you helped me achieve that with the shading tip so a big thank you to you been sketching with ebony pencil alot lately so I do see what you mean with the values, definitely nice. the hair and tea cups comment made me laugh a bit

    glikster - thanks man, I do agree with ya, probably be a bit more adventurous with my lighting next time I do a long still life like that

    some reffed sketches

    the following two are all imagined sketches

    and a small crappy environment sketch
    Onir's sketchbook (ended)

    mostly been doing these type of sketches lately, just trying to get better with imagined anatomy and people. gonna keep pushing that, try to figure out some way to get better at it. also been considering buying a set of oil paints lately, so if any of you have some suggestions I always appreciate it .

    be back with more soon

    look at the notes thread in the workshop forum for oil tips...ds and shawn barber and hussar and dobsky and jason chan all contributed REALLY good ideas...trust me, oils are so much better for a lot of stuff. the colors just seem to come out richer.

    work on your perspective!!!!!!!! or, i may just be dumb and interpreting your environment pic wrong ^^

    great ref'ed sketches btw. i bought a set of pencils that go up to 9B, it's great. i heard that a lot of ppl sketch with a mechanical and also a F...maybe try that to see if you like that also...since ebonies don't erase well.

    I dig your last updates. It's really good that you keep the variety.
    http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a2...ketches_93.jpg - Fantastic rendering. I think the reflected light is too bright here. Too much white on the edge of the sphere.

    Folded piece of paper looks much better than earlier one so you made progress. As for reffed and imagine people sketches... it's hard to say something . Maybe think more about volume when drawing people. I mean box, cylinder, sphere and so on.

    hpslashluvr (or Emily, whichever you prefer) - thanks, that notes thread is wonderful, lots of great info in there. also I tried sketching in F like you suggested and I do like it, nice having a pretty light line after using ebony for a while. perspective is something I'm gonna start practicing more as well hehe, definitely need it.

    Farvus - thanks man, glad ya liked the paper and the sphere. I understand about the reffed pics hehe, I really need to start thinking as you said: more volumetric. gonna have to try a few more sketches like that sometime soon.

    glikster - thanks, always nice to hear that haha; hard to be sure I'm improving myself sometimes..

    machzero - hey man, naaah nothing substantial hehe; mostly just imagined doodles and such (which I have some of today). I really just need to throw caution to the wind and do a full piece.. I'll do it one of these days

    gah I suck at updating lol. I always say I'm gonna try to stay consistent and I'ma say it again. realizing that even if I put up my doodles and such you guys can help me out with those at least, right? hehe well yea I have some doodles this time around, let me know what ya think:

    a jumble of random things, bicycle kick guy was inspired by all this world cup fun

    a page from my small sketchbook; was messing around with some basic 2 point perspective but drifted away it after a point

    and just a guy I quickly drew recently; kinda liked the way he came out

    a small update; just some head I drew. started off as just a quick sketch (hence the writing and the doodle in her hair), but I added some shading and sharpened up some things. facial anatomy is pretty bad (anatomy in general isn't great really; neck feels wierd), but I kinda like the way it came out.

    alright, be back soon.

    agreed with glikster.

    on the last post...make sure the eye that goes "off the face" (on the right)...don't draw the lashes going up like that...it makes the eye look skewed. also the dark part (the pupil?) is not in the same position i think for both of them. nice shading!

    sorry i haven't replied in a while =P
