    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.

    I just did a little doodle to celebrate Halloween. Inspired a bit by Calvin and Hobbe's snowmen strips...
