    Nice head shots, I can see a steady improvement from your first posts. Your last self portrait on page 1 is really good. Shading really adds a lot of depth to a piece. Only thing I'd say is you seem to get bored quickly when it comes to drawing hair (like me :3 )

    You have an awesome imagination, but I think you are would really benifit from anatomy studies. Just do studies of the human budy any chance you get. Looking forward to seeing more.

    ahh...
    Good stuff! Its great that you are doing sp's its a good way to train your eyes.
    In my opinion, you should try to do more full size drawings of real people, get a grip on the anatomy aspects and the different shapes on bodyparts. cuz you got good skills. also, try and clean up your lines in your graphite drawings, execute your lines more definite and more confident.
    Have a good one!
    See you!

    Nice, but I think as it was mentioned before, keep trying skull studies,try to get some interesting angles in. Straight-on/45° shots work, but I honestly think you can get some crazy perspectives in and still maintain a nice degree of quality, just to make your images more dynamic and interesting for viewers.
    And keep the full-body sketches coming! I saw some of them earlier, and although there was some room for improvement, they were great.

    Everyone says, do some studies in anatomy. Well instead of that just look up a 19th century artist called Ingres and copy from his drawings he's one of the best there ever was.

    u have some nive process goin on allready, i liked some of ur more comic like stuff aswell as one of the pages with the fast life portraits.

    Generaly id say that most of ur work looks realy rushed even in a sketchbook u should take ur time now n then. think about values and how u create depth think about how u use ur lines.

    Cool stuff.
    There's some serious progress on the Wacom pictures. By the worm-thingie there's some fairly nice hard edges showing up-it was a little too smudgy through the whole piece before then. The hand drawn stylized character heads are my favorite by far at the moment, and I'll agree with ZebzFree the sp's get better as they go on. I'm curious if you draw much from life.

    Good show.

    fuzzylogic: thanks dude! it feels really good to hear that you´re noticing improvement!

    Frank, glad to see ya! Thanks, i just bought two anatomy books, wich seems to be great. Gonna draw stuff from them alot in the near future.

    B-Man: Yeah, thanks man!
    Jag tecknade kroki förra måndagen, vilket oturligt nog var sista gången innan jullovet. men så fort det startar efter nyår ska jag fortsätta teckna kroki, och hoppas att det hjälper!

    monkeylizard: thanks mate! gonna work through some anatomy books i´ve bought, and hopefully i´ll get to the head chapters soon. =)

    Blahm: Thanks my fellow 8´er. i will!

    Dreckster: Yeah, gotta work up my patience. (= Thank you!

    bulfrog: Whoa, thanks! Hmm, i dont know if it´s that often, but i try to do some studies from life every week anyway. People on the bus, friends in school, still lifes at home.

    BrentM: Thank you thank you!


    and now the update!

    Hey, Flask. Those digital are really interesting to look at as well as that first sketch that you rendered up really well. They're obviously abstracted but they look kinda cool, mate! I like that you're still doing studies and such as well. Keep it up!! You're stuff is already improving!

    Hey Flask! Sorry I haven't here since october. My bad. You are really coming along. Your pencil work has improved dramatically. It really is interesting to look at this thread. Almost like there are two of you. One realistic, the other abstract. Good for you. Do more pencil stuff. I enjoy that the most. You are also get a lot better at it. Well Done. Also- for the first time in a month or so- my sketchbook has an update. So, if you are interested, check it out.

    http://img445.imageshack.us/img445/5...ningbolt8g.jpg really blew me away. Very expressive, you worked with what you know best, and you did an excellent job of conveying what you wanted to.

    This sketch book started with you spending far too much time doing exactly what you know how to do (those awesome heads with questionable anatomy) and it's nice to see you looking to move away from there, and grow from there. There are still very few bodies up here (I think 0 bodies w/legs done from your head w/o reference) It's something that I'm sure you're working on. While the paints are looking nice, I'd agree that the pencils are really where you shine. That's just a matter of practice, however, and I'm sure you'll get the nice hard edges into your paints before long.
    Happy New Year.

    that samurai is cool. keep working with ref... and you should probably start drawing a bit more than painting. a good painter usually has to have a good foundation in drawing.
    keep it up

    flaskan! jag har inte kommenterat denna ännu har jag för mig. väldigt bra, ansiktet fick du till bra måste jag säga. Du hade dock gärna fått fortsatt på den, slängt på lite färg, etc. Den upplevs väldigt platt i nuläget, och en aning trist skulle jag säga!
    men som sagt, bra konturer och välvalda linjer.

    fat kid: yeah, i´m just a lazy fucker who doesnt like to scan stuff.
    but i scanned some pencils today!

    bulfrog: thanks for the kind words mate! and yeah, full body drawings, they´re deffenitely lacking in my sketchbook. trying to work on my anatomy now, so hopefully i´ll make some of those without ref i´m proud enough of to show!

    Blahm: Thanks, and you´re right! Fantastic movie! Ah, damn, forgot to write that i used the color picker tool! thats why the colors are so great!

    Odds: You always have words of wisdom with you! Glad you stopped by, thanks man!

    Frank: This update´s for you!

    Tiger: Kul att du kikade in! Yeah, den känns fan ofärdig nu. Ska kanske ta tag i den senare. =)
    Vad kul att du säger det! Försökte tänka på linjerna, och vara lite sparsam med dom.
    Peace man!

    yay good ole bridgman

    good stuff n studies
    but i suggest to not just copy but to imagine own poses and arm hand body movement to visualize

    try to understand the body in 3d - use more views poses to understand particular body masses volumes muscles - mentler has a 3 pose method thingy which is a good one - draw one pose from more directions
    gives u better idea about the entire body ... i draw diffrent poses again and again till i understand the body mass movement better

    hope dis helps

    lets do some oc l8r maybe :@

    *bumps flasks ass*
    dont make me more crazy then yu are !
