    Nice flow in the lines and some good gestures too. The masses seem flat and a little segmented, though.

    Don't miss the rise

    Females are hard to draw in my opinion since you got to show muscle, form, shape, light and shadow without losing the femininity, of course it doesn't apply when drawing a really really ugly female They have to be soft yet well defined.

    okay, enough of my blabbering just watch the shape of the thighs and keep the width from shoulder to shoulder smaller than the width of the hips.

    you need to do more colors too ...

    Nice studies!...Makes me want to practice more ( hence the number of heads on my sketch book site!)

    About Halftones in PS...there are two ways of doing it:
    1. Make a copy of you image>flatten it>Filters>Pixelate>color Halftone...when the box appears I prefer to change the size radius to 4 and then set all the other boxes to the same value (ie 45)...this will give you a pretty good start to play with as an overlay/screen/multiply,etc on your image. (One other thing you can do is then to go to Filters>Other>maximum/minimum...this will make the dots larger or smaller, depending on what you desire).

    2. Copy and flatten your image...choose two colours that you want to use on your image, go to Filters>Sketch>HalftonePattern...choose dots or lines or circle ( whatever you fancy) then I push the contrast up quite high, as this gives you more of a sharper/printed look. You image will now be dots, but using the colours you chose. From here you can then copy the layer back into you original, and play around with the layer modes.

    One final way of doing shading in a halfton/Ashley Wood type of way, is to make a new layer and draw the shapes of your shadows, fill them with a mid ( 128,128,128 ) grey, then use the first method I mentioned to change the layer to dots.

    Another way ( just remembered!!!) is to make new image ( 4pixels by 3 pixels ) and, using the pencil tool, draw black dots every other pixel, flatten this and go to edit>Define Pattern..this makes your image into a pattern. On your original artwork, draw the shapes of the ares you wish to 'halftone', then go to Edit>Fill>Contents box>Pattern>in the little drop down box find your halftone patter, and hey presto....instant halftone. You can then set it to what ever layer mode you want.

    All my secrets revealed!!!!! Hope this has helped.

    hey man, thx for stopping by my sb thread. you have some good stuff here. your works are dynamic, you usually show good knowledge of form, and i love your expressions. if there's something i can crit, i would say take another look at the insertion of the thigh into the knee and of the general elbow area. the thigh starts out fat by the hip and groin area and slims down as it reaches the knee. i know comics usually do this the other way around, but it tends to look kinda weird. anyway, keep up with what you're doing, and i would definitely recommend working with values as much as you can. im trying to go back and learn things with value as opposed to line, and its much harder that way. anyway, g'luck man, and again, thx for stopping by my place. ill be around.

    more than (but i'm getting there)

    You're running good! The progress you keep on making shows that you have an ... open brain, if I may say so. So envious of that. :{
    The ladies' hips are looking better, just too small at times, perhaps. The shoulder area needs some relaxing though; it should be more of a triangular shape, you know, like a hanger.

    Great stuff, as usual - really like the mutant monster gang member in 1402, and the mutant-wrestler guy.

    Digging the figure studies as well - only thing I'd say is, on some of the females (like 2 and 6), the heads seem a bit small for their bodies. I do the same thing often, and I'm constantly resizing my yeah!

    Keep it coming and all that jazz.

    Cheers and stuff
    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.
