    max1975 finally drew that comic book he's been threatening for years

    Hi there. I'm new here. Thought I'd introduce myself with some sketches. I'm trying to improve, so criticism is very welcome, and if you point me towards your work, I'll happily return the favor

    3 recent things to start. This first one was an unusual pose for me, and I don't think I quite pulled it off.

    This next one's a mess. I was working on several different things and I don't think I put them together very well.

    Finally, one I'm pretty happy with, gonna be a big digital painting i think.

    Vigostar: I just started drawing models again after a long time not doing so, so I'm still feeling my way through, figuring out how to make the best use of the time...didn't want to go back and fill in the darks on the one guy because I thought it was one of the best things I've drawn, and I didn't wanna mess it up. But I see how darks would be helpful. I should play with it in photoshop.

    Rookie80: The transition from light to dark is one thing I've been focusing on lately, trying to get higher contrast in my pictures for a more dynamic look, also trying to get sharper shadows. I may be erring too much in that direction right now?

    Thanks for the comments, guys. They are much appreciated.

    From today:


    And from a while ago. Working on a really elaborate background for this one, but I suck at backgrounds, and it is really elaborate, so it'll probably be a year or two before it's finished :-/

    From a couple months ago, right before I started a spasm of anatomy studies. People have told me that the position of the hanging leg is possible, but that doesn't make it look right:


    From a couple weeks ago:


    From this afternoon (first effort for DSG, didn't realize the topic was old):

    heads...lots of heads

    From today: 20 heads of various quality, including Elfis. Next time I do this exercise, I need to draw bigger. Maybe do ten heads, and make the quality less various.


    And another old piece:

    Gosh Max! Great start to your SB.
    I like it so far. Nice darks and light in your pieces. Makes them stand out very well
    I think the last figure study page looks great!
    Keep up the good work.

    Good stuff here, you draw women really well. Only gripe would be on the faces page a few seem a bit elongated or stumpy but it seems to me that you are bending the conventions on this page anyway so it isn't really a gripe lol.

    Lazy: I drew all the heads rather quickly, would have fixed them if I'd taken more time. But the fact that I got them wrong in the first place indicates a weakness I need to work on, so thanks for pointing that out.

    Fractured: Thanks for stopping by, and for the kind words

    Think the life studies are starting to bear fruit...here's a drawing from today without reference.

    Couple new ones...the first is from Saturday. Gonna go back to it at some point, once I figure out what the hell she's sitting on. Also the skirt needs work...I suck at clothes. Clearly whast I need to do is get various materials, drape them over various body parts, and draw them a lot until I get it, but I wouldn't object if anyone wants to suggest some fast and easy ways to fake it

    Anatomy regressed a bit on the second one, something to do with the head and shoulders I think...also the arm...didn't finish the legs because I liked the way she sorta fades out down there.

    Cloth and lizard studies. This was my reference for the cloth, it's a good one: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...glance&s=books. The lizard's on the cover of a big book called Natural World-Living World, which is not a good reference because it's too darn heavy to carry around with me. Also the lizard was fairly complicated and I got bored with it quickly.



    Then I did some more work on this one...

    Well hello! Thanks for stopping by again. Thought I would look in on your SB and I see some brilliant new stuff. Great figure work. Really showing impovement in form.
    Only crit I have right off the go is on the last female figure. IMO the right forearm to hand perspective looks a little- squashed- I guess. The result being that her forearm looks thicker than it should. Give it a look and see what you think. Hand looks too small as well when compared to the left. But Hey! I could be crazy too. : )

    Camilo: Hopefully today's heads will be better.

    Fractured: You're right. Don't wanna mess with the hand, but I've reshaped the forearm a bit...will post again when I get some more done on it...need to start fleshing out whatever the hell she's sitting on. What's worse is her shin--it's too short, bugging me lots, and probably difficult to fix because I've already darkened it.

    Some heads & doodling:

    Lazygun: Thanks, spent more time on the heads this go-around...still sucking on the upshots, but not quite as bad.

    This dude sucks. I can do better. Got bored of him. Didn't get bored of her.


    Model tomorrow, can't wait...

    You have some interesting stuff here. What I faind more interesting than the fact that you are getting a grasp on anatomy is the style you are developing. I like your faces. Although I think you should put in some small indication of a background into your pictures.

    Cyberotter: Thanks for stopping by, and for the comments.

    You're right about backgrounds. I have difficulty suggesting them without drawing every detail, and I usually don't wanna draw every detail, so I leave them empty. Definitely something I need to work on.

    Hey Inkfish, thanks for stopping by The two you mentioned are among my favorites, too.

    Last one for today...Had to abort because the face just wasn't working and i was about to wear through the paper with all the erasing and redrawing. But I like the concept, so maybe I'll start over from scratch...

    Hey Max!
    Those last updates look pretty darn good.
    The new "faces" page is leaps ahead of the last one.
    Keep it up.

    Peace

    Didn't draw anything particularly interesting over the weekend, so I thought I'd throw up a painting I did over the summer. I'm pretty new at paint. Someday I hope to be as adept with a brush as I am with a pencil, but until then, I rely on pretty colors
