Usually when you focus on construction and 3d volumetric forms, it's really hard to play with ideas and designs. That's why I think you gotta practice a lot with constructing and later all that knowledge will show up in loose more gestural doodles. You can also draw your design first without worrying too much on proportions and just use it as your blueprint for constructed figure sketch. More work but it pays off.
The color face study of Dracula looks really good. You will see some differences in value when you look at both with squinted eyes. For example the shadow on his forehead seems to be too dark. The mark that describes his left eye pouch (right side of picture) is a also a bit too dark.
The enviro is really cool. Thanks for showing steps.

Favrus: your right about those values, i never thought about ''squinting'' my eyes , blurrign everything simplify a lot. Thanks for the feedback on construction, i think it helps me break some mental barriers...
Ok here are some penciles from this week, or shoud I say doodles since its soo crappy and with a meaning .. Anyway , i feel im getting more loose and less restrained mentaly and physically recently with traditional stuff. notworried about the process no more but rather focused on reproducing accuraretly the overall shapes of ideas in my mind or from life,,, i think i need to do a lot of drawing to get back into it... the anatomy is still very weak and i feel blank spot in my brain when i start drawing some muscles so i will need a lot of anatom ystudying and life drawing.. i already started a bit but not enough. CRITS PLEASE, if you find it worth commenting =(

OH boy! these are nice
May I ask what brushes you speak of? I would love to give them a try...
Artists have such a magnificent gift...breathing life into something with just simple lines.

I like the last speedie. Only thing that bothers me is the two vine like threads hanging down, they're drawing my eye with no apparent reason behind them. Perhaps Turning them into a hanging blanket of vine type plants would make more sense?
Loving the play of light and texture on the ground near the fire, though

Wow. Fantastic environments. They all have pretty balanced composition.
Loosing traditional medium skills when doing lots of digital stuff is common thing. I think you'll have to get used to that. At the end what really matter is idea. It's definately more important than technique and all that stuff .
Keep it up!
