    Yet another year gone by and another Winter Girl to capture from memory. This young lady I saw leaning against a light post on a cold and misty day in San Francisco. I couldn't tell if she was dialing a cell phone or choosing a playlist on her mp3 player. Her pose kind of described that she might be avoiding glare on the LCD screen, thus her bent over posture. Not sure if I remebered it clearly though.

    I added some quick colors too.

    Happy New Year!

    -Yeti





    And here's some of the last sketches of 2006 some from ref and a self-portrait:

    Just thought I'd fill a page of rendered ladies. Most from photo ref and one from the noggin (you can probably tell which one isn't refed).

    Wonder Woman Pencils roughly colored in photoshop. There is question as to whether she can actually fly, I like to think that she caught an up draft off the Marin Headlands and came upon the GG Bridge just in time to find a landing place. Now as to a 'soft landing', that's a whole other story.

    Wow, your art is really talented.
    That detective picture of yours (on page 1) looks exactly like mine that I drew early last year, albeit a much better drawing than mine.

    Keep up the great work.

    I love the way you do hair. I gotta learn that. Nice colors in PS on Wonder Woman. The way you've got that piece colored is reminiscent of old school comics. Very nice work. As to her flying maybe have her lasso roped around a giant albatross that she controls

    Thanks, Baron.

    darkchild: Thank you my friend. When it comes to hair, I just use flowing parallel lines that cross over and under in some places. Like the example from photo ref, look at the circled areas that describe the hair cross itself. At the top of the head I try to taper off the line to leave highlights or to show where the hairline is or how the ends of the hair hangs. Whether its curly, wavey or straight, I try to go at it in a similar way.


    Hope that makes sense.

    I think it's safe to say that Wonder Woman does flies in one way or another. She flies in the "Kingdom Come" graphic novel series.

    Another sketchbook page, this time without ref, except the Maria Sharapova sketch. It may not be a perfect likeness because I was watching the Australian Open match between her and Kim Clijsters. So I based the sketch on a close up they flashed of Maria glaring at Kim after a big score.

    Thank you, Darkchild. I hope I wasn't too vague about the hair thing. I'll hop over to your sketchbook and see if there's anything I can add to help you out. But remember a good part of it is a matter of style.

    Freakin Beautiful! And only 30 minutes? Great work! That bottom eyelid of her left eye is kinda weird. Almost like it's swollen or something. Maybe it's the shape, kinda like a lima bean. Doesn't matter, looks awesome!!

    darkchild, thanks. 30 mins approx. But not including the sketch. And I agree about her left lower eyelid, looks bad.

    You are obviously way more proficient at the brush tip pens than I am. Very nice strokes with the pen.

    A few gestural figure drawings. 2 minutes and 5 minutes using 6b graphite stick on rough newsprint.













    And a sketch from memory of a girl at a yogart stand in Napa on a warm day last weekend.

    Some 10 and 20 minute poses from the same session as above. On 75lb sketchbook with mechanical pencil.







    The reclining pose has the most proprtional problems. Can you see what I mean?

    You're a wonderful artist. I think your poses and figures are some of the most inspiring that I have seen, and it's very impressive that you can convey an emotion with so few lines.

    Working without reference is very difficult for me, yours are excellent. Are there any certain types of studies or learning techniques you have used to become so accurate?

    Either way, great work. If I even manage to get half as good at figures and portraits I'll be happy with myself. Keep posting, please... really inspiring work!

    topiKal: You are very kind with such gracious compliments.
    The work is by far not up to par with others on this forum. I don't do color work as often as I should, but I continue to sketch in pencil and lately experiment with digital sketching tools.

    As for studies or techniques - the most appropriate answer would be to sketch from life as often as you can. Continue to be inspired by other artists and soon you'll find your own style come through. Use your imagination or memory of sites and figures. Often I will see something in everday life that inspires me to want to try and capture it in sketch later when I get back to my drawing board and not necessarily as it happens. Draw more and keep on drawing. Hope that helps, it seems rather general to say.

    Here's another drawing from life:


    And another future coloring project:


    Cheers,

    Yeti

    Good anatomy on the Electra. Use a ref?

    Also, your rendering is getting more polished...don't stop improving it.

    Oh yeah, one more thing: your compositions could stand to be kicked up a notch...like the wonder-woman piece, that was more like it!

    Thanks, BludHund. Oh yes, I used ref on Elektra, the pose I found actually inspired the piece - as did the Wonder Woman piece. I usually get inspiration from the pose I find. I use reference for aid or problem solving, or when there's too long between life drawing sessions. But I still find it important to practice from memory or imigination as well.

    And thanks for the encouragment on the composition and rendering.
