hey peoples, its been a little while since i did anything here..... i have been drawing but stuff i can't show you
heres something i picked up again, i'm going to work on this one some more, but any comments at this stage would be nice, is my "blending method" ok?
llothcat, this is a perfect opportunity for you to harass me about not taking my own advise
Haldor, hey thanks man.... i'm not too sure how long i would have spent on the feet and hands, probably about 40ish?..... thanks again and i will try post more
evildisco, thanks, good to have you in the SSG btw, ah yes, the everlasting quest for a more decisive stroke....yeah i'll work on it, thanks
Recursive_End, thank you, i will
tullie, hey tullie, yeah it is from imagination, i used an idy bit of ref for the arm when i couldn't get the muscles right..... i wish i'd been i little more original with that piece ( and pretty much implemented all of the criticism i got from mike.....) but anywayz, i'm going to enter in the rematch for the "teen challenge".....babbling a bit now so i'll just stop
dfacto, hey, thanks, i'll post those soon (you mean the PS textures right?), btw, have you done some 3D work yourself? i'd like to see it if you have . chances are i won't really work on Olaf....ever again, because i'm onto other projects now.....
motives, thanks, yeah damn darker shadows huh.....they MUST DIE!!!!! , i'm working on them, thanks for stopping by
EDIT:Taj, thanks, i wans't thinking of that at the time, but yeah definately some similarity.......tis a sad story, ryan......

heh, ok so this is a little weird..... i'm doing a painting of a drawing i did from a photo ref, that is a reproduced pose from a painting from 1808..... follow that? well anyway, heres a wip, early stages at the mo'
Recursive_End, yeah thanks, your totally right, i'll do that soon.....maybe?
sorry for being all over the place, i'll get something finished some day
Great sb you got here. On the last pic, the left arm's bicep looks out of place in relation to the shoulder. The kick on the lower head of the bicep might also be too severe. Good foreshortening on the left leg. I think his right thigh could be a tad longer to look in proportion to the rest of the body. Should make for a real interesting painting when you get around to it.
Yep, mrBobMarley is right.
Besides that, your studie is really nice. maybe the shading on her left thigh could have been a bit longer.
But overall your doing some good work
PS: dont worry about starting new wip. Its a sketchbook, post what you want,experiment, see what you can develope or not.
MrBobMarley, hey thanks for stopping by, your critique was excellent, thanks mucho grande. i kinda changed a few things, but so much anatomical detail got lost with what i did, that it doesn't really matter too much, i don't think.....
Taj, yeah i see what your saying, again i didn't really change it in this, but if i do another version that is a little clearer, i will make him a bit less......elongated-abdomin-ated......? nice to see someone from outside the ssg, posting more than once, thanks
everyone else, thanks!
anywayz, this is really just an experiment i did at 5 in the morning.....its 6 now and about time to hit the hay......
i'm pretty pleased with it though.... i'm expecting some of you might not be able to see anything if you screen is calibrated differently than mine....sorry about that, but it looks pretty rad on my screen
and a detail shot, just cos the texture looks cool, and i've never done a detail shot before
EDIT: Recursive_End, thanks, i did that, pretty sure its updated ok, i only did the left arm, i like the right mostly in shadow

I have to agree with Recursive, A bit more lighting all around this would help, right nonw its a bit confusing as to what exactley it is, but your not done anyways so you probably knew that already but overall this piece is pretty sweet.
