    Just did it now... No Ctrl Z at all... =)

    I have a bunch of other stuff to scan... not sure...
    Here is my Last man standing;


    I'm working on a still life... but the paper, I came to find out, is really crappy. It's the kind that balls up in your shading, making dark spots everywhere... shoulda gotten bristol or something... Still working on it though. Long long shading time.It should be up to about 4 hours or so now.



    Mmmmm tired.

    Cool, I think I already told you all I wanted about the td piece before. Hope you decide to come back to it and touch it up some more.

    The hand study looks good, but is very very desaturated. I'd expect there to be more warms in your hand, at least in the light. Also, the light is very bright with few distinguishable midtones or highlights, one or the other could be pushed more.

    I'll be waiting for the still life!

    good stuff man i really like it.
    Love the atmosphere and the explosion is really overwhelmin - in a good one.
    My only thing is the unfinishdedyness to some places - shoulder of the left dude - go with lines rather that sort of 'scribbles' - go with smaller lines for the building in bg, but keep there same sort of colours so they sit back.

    Good job tho, i like it. The left person is excellent.

    Like I said... gonna show you both the bad and the ugly now, rip my guts out and such. You'll see alot more of the things I waste time on, you know.

    @Asoir(below): Wolfbane seems to generate way more attention, that's probably why =P

    WTF? This thread gets 3 stars whilst Wolfbanes rages onto 4? Hmm...voted.
    Like the light studies alot, try some full rendered characters, maybe an orthograph. Studying is fantastic, but maybe a little bit of practice for professional stuff could help career wise too.

    Looks pretty good. From photo or life?
    might wanna go back and tighten up some areas. Theres no need to leave the geometry of the roof so loose, and you could use a more detail focus point.

    that last man standing is incredible, when i saw your name and it in the thread I was amazed.
    I think you should drop the anime kiddish style and concentrate on more realistic drawings
    Youre so motivated, have some stars on me

    Hahah... those were from 2k4 man!!! hahaha!


    But thanks for the compliment, it means alot =)

    Yeah it's supposed to be me..




    Surrender to.... FROSTBITTEN PINKY!



    Just as a note;

    I seriously considered disappearing for a while. But I don't think that's gonna happen. It might, but if it does there will be no warning. I want to have people help me and guide me... to go it alone has it's benefits for a few months, but I think I prefer my wide ass-hole to my closed mouth, y'know? It's just... not me...


    No, they are with a gray Crayola actualy.

    Are these latest sketches done using a marker pen? The free-flowing feeling is coming out pretty well.

    Oh man dont make me bust out my 2k4 sketches (when I was your age actually ) deviantart2dmax! >_>

    "Grey crayola" stuff looks good, you're achieving some nice line qualities. When youre blocking in with it though (like the torso study) block in the values all the way.

    Looking good. A tip when you're drawing with markers, crayons, menustrational blood, whatever. Think of the line, decide where the line should go and then do it. Because right now it seems you are trying to find the right line, instead of putting it down directly.

    Hey Pixel, good stuff as always. Should be interestin to see some of these paint jobs
    Gun women - head/shoulder placement looks a little funny, try taking the head up a bit.
    Painted head - try defining the chin more, its lost in the neck a little, just a sharp highlight or something down it.

    Dont stop posting though man, even if its once a week, comments and crits cand stuff can help you out more than u notice.
    Andy.

    Sp looks good (its an exercise I do actually attempt from time to time, if you check ryn's thread its what I hypocritically recommended to her ). Youre getting the form to read well. The trick in getting the likeness to read well in these is to get accurate shadows shapes for your features (eyesocket, shadows under nose, lips, cheekbones and jaw) though you werent interested in that here.
    Youre losing all form in the nose, youre missing a brighter plane on the bridge and possibly a highlight on the tip.

    chick with the gun looks great for something that loose, work around with the legs more, her right leg especially is very stiff, more like a mannequin than a human being. Play around with the weight distribution to get more interest even if it is a static pose.

    Hey man nice book, i really dig the pencil gestures and this sorta stuff.

    I would say the next step is to work on your sustained pieces, spend a bit more time on a pencil rendering or a painting and develop a more critical eye.

    I would echo Jens....
    the oil scketch is cool, if it is intended as a sketch. (I love sketching in oils it seems so counter intuitive.) and it wouls be a great underpainting to somethign a little more finished. have you concidered toned paper/canvas? it makes you reconcider you colour choices.

    but most important..keep working..the more you make art the better you get..I have been watching and you are getting better fast!

    @Chaosrocks: I only used brown because A, I had no black, and B I didn't want black to dominate the paper. Thanks for stoppin by.

    Hey pixel, nice job on the thunderdome piece, the landscape you painted outside your window would be great if you carried it further, nice colors in the sky. Just as a suggestion, try doing a more extensive underdrawing on some of your stuff, don't be afraid to use construction lines, you can erase it until it's lighter and put more expressive lines on top of it. Also remember that perspective plays a part in everything you draw and once you practice it alot you develop a sense for it so that it's easier to get things correctly placed on the first try </rambling> Good stuff, can't wait to see more

    Looking good. When doing the muscle+bone studies, try using different colour marker or pens to make each layer clear. An exercise to try from time to time is to draw a nude figure from ref, then use another colour to superimpose the muscle and/or bones is respect to the pose.

    Nice work lately,
    I like the gestures and figure sketches a lot.

    Your digital painting is coming along too,

    First in the big 11x14 hardbound I just got. Sorry for the page distortion, it takes 2 hands just to scan the bugger! note that I have a printer/scanner, so I have to hold it above the table =(


    (other stuff is on average 8.5x11 sheets, but you usually only see fractions of the sheets

    looking good on the latest scan there. reminds me, i really should start drawing in the huge sketchbooks i stole from my school's art dept. maybe you could use a softer pencil to make some dark areas and make his muscles more.. toned/defined.

    i suppose it's just a wip though? i dunno. it's brilliant anyway!

    you've improved a lot since i last had a flick through. may i ask what you've been doing..? i've totally run out of ideas on what to do for myself
