    Oldnoobie: I will try my hand at Photoshopping my images.

    EKU_11: Thank you for the kind words.

    sith: I will keep on drawing til I cant draw no more.

    Here is a quick 5 minute sketch of my girl last night. I made her look really old and deformed for some reaso. It was done in Conte' Crayon on 18x24 drawing paper.

    oh I don't mean to use photoshop to alter the image but to see what it would look like to see if making those changes should be applied to the original when working with refs whether from life or photos, a stronger contrast can be created by making the dark darker and the light lighter. Though that is easier said than done, it takes a while to learn how much and where to push it.

    The face looks incorrect. The left eye does not align with the right eye maybe the hair line could come forward a bit because her forehead looks to big, shading is well done.

    Here is a one hour sketch done of a 63 impala. It was done with mechanical pencils. This is the first page of my brand new black cachet sketchbook.

    Hello Mr. Unknown-

    I have finally made my way here! I am liking the work. My crit would be you seem to be jumping into dark values really quickly... from looking at your work as a whole right now, I dont see the value transistion between the darkest of darks to the midtones... This could either be the scan, the picture, or my monitor, and if this is the case please disregard me! But anyway, a thing to think about is layering the graphite to get your darks going, rather than just jumping in with some hard pressure on some really soft pencils. The latter will result in a shinier look to the graphite, and a harsh dark area, IMO

    I am interested in this sketchgroup thing. Lemme know how one joins, if you would allow me! I am stopping by the other's book in SSG36 to drop them a line as well!

    Here is my update finally ( thanks to everyone for not beating me up about the computer issue). It is a bit of a homage done to Alphonse Mucha, who is a very important artist to me. He was czech born and to see some of his work just head over to artrenewal.org.

    My picture was done in mechnanical pencil and traced over by sharpie ( my microns dried up and i need to get more ink for my rapidographs) It is the first page of my recent sketchbook and is a title page of sorts. The text is Czech and reads October Night.

    Here is another sketch i did today of my g/f. This one took 15 minutes or so and is done in mechanical pencil.


    And for OldNoobie, here is my first acrylic painting. It was done two years ago and was for food for arts which is a benefit dinner that my alma mater does to support their art program. The picture is of Mona Lisa and one of Salvador Dali's melted clocks sitting in a bowl of tomato soup.... yeah I am that weird.

    hope that pic of your gf isn't a scan .. cuz its really skewered and blurry (the blurry part could be my eyes though)

    your first acrylic painting isn't that bad ... though I have no idea what tomato soup has to do with art

    Art can get pretty bizarre and out there that nowhere us weird us some of the stuff that I've seen which people call art. I like the October Night pic but the girl need some more work done to her and maybe try some different poses like a more fetalis position.

    I know how that feels .. I started working full time in the food service industry when I was 17 and didn't have the motivation to draw. Figured I would just stop for a little bit until I get into the groove of working, guess wha, its been over 20 years. Now I have to play catch up. SOOO don't do what I did, keep drawing every day even if it is just a square or a circle.

    Good to see you drawing again

    Snowgoons rock, and the noses all look good. It's hard to know how accurate they are without seeing the references though. For me, noses are pretty easy to make look like a nose and just about impossible to make look like a specific nose. I'd be curious to see you throw down a wide variety: hook noses and petite female noses and African noses.

    For eye studies, don't forget that the bone structure of the socket and the way the eyelid falls are just as or more important, instead of just drawing the iris and pupil in an oval. But for an iris and pupil in an oval, the eyes are also good.

    I liked the earlier Impala sketch too, despite the hood thing. I gotta work on vehicles.

    Variety is the spice of life doesn’t get stuck too much into the one thing. Your latest nose eye work are a lot more better looking but watch the nostrils they make the whole nose seem flat yet the shading gives depth make it look a bit weird.

    Here is a sketch done on 18x24 newsprint. This is the basis sketch done for a painting I am going to do for a friend. I plan to add a small boy and a dog in the painting, but I have not completed those sketches.

    I know the right leg is too skinny, the hands are a little ughh, the torso appears too tall, and i think i messed up on the feet. Besides these and the face being a bit off is there anything else i should look at? If anyone likes they can certainly do paintovers or drawovers to show me correct proportions and angles.

    The painting will be in oils, so I would like the sketch to reflect the final painting as much as possible.

    PS. I am aware of the diamonds not being on the left pant leg, call it laziness.

    His right shoulder is a little too far down and out. Also, I'm not some kind of banjo connoisseur, but I thought their necks were shorter.

    Once again today I saw a person waring an Irish pride shirt and I thought why don't they have a shirt for my kind of pride? I am part Irish and all people but I do not wear on my sleeve. I then thought why don't I show my pride. And the resulting 10 minute illustrator doodle is what resulted.

    Here is a 15 minute pastel sketch. It is on newsprint and is about 6x6. Hope you enjoy.

    Sorry for the blurry pic.

    Hooray orange! The color of the shadow looks a little odd. I think I want it to be blue or purplish instead of greenish. That might just be all of my recently ingested color theory relating to complementary (opposite) colors busting out erroneously, but writing in the quick reply box and only seeing the bottom of the orange, it looks more like a dirty cookie or something. I'm thinking the shadow comes up too much on the right side (it's right next to the shine) and should maybe blend more from the darker thin crescent shape into the rest of the shadow?

    It made me want an orange though! So

    ...and... all we have are apples. Curse you!

    Unknown - noice orange! I can't believe you got that much pastel to stick to newsprint! I freaking HATE newsprint! But anyway, I agree with Frumious on the complementary color shadow thing. You put a blue next to that orange and it will look way more intense.

    And I DO have oranges. But I think I'll settle for some OJ

    I can see that you were trying to get some reflections on it, which makes me think it might be metal? If it's metal, it probably wants some darker areas. Oh, and it's just crazy coming from me right now, but post more!

    The sugar pot thing is a good exercise. How did you draw this though? Did you start with a contour, measuring the shape by use of negative space? Its a good idea to get a basic gesture of the form and start from there - it might prevent any of the skewing you seem to be experiencing on this one. The shading efforts are nice though, but you do need to punch up those darks if it is to come across as a reflective surface.

    Nice work - post more... (it sounds crazy coming from me too
