I had a really good book from Kraayvanger, dealing mostly with live models, but i haven't had the chance to draw with a live model. The book though talks about a lot of useful things..like controlling contrast, using expressive lines, and how to recognize shapes. It was a really helpful book.
d00d. dont get upset sometimes if u dont have ne replies, there were times that i posted 3 times and still didnt have ne replies
uve got to do more stuff, so people will come, take time and comment, critique. the only thing u should do now is to drwa everyday, and then upload like 10-15.
so ull be having lotssa critiques ;p
About he last drawing u did, i like the pose, the face is nicely rendered, u just gotta draw more, dont put SO much time for ur shading
Ur observation is pretty good, u see and u draw , and majority of time u get the proportions right
I especially like your life study pic (kraayvangerstudy1mc.jpg) because of its strong prominent outline.
Recently your stuff has been less sketchy and you've been picking more intuitive emphasis on certain areas, which is really good. When you are making those lines stronger on a second/third pass, try and do them yet more defined so they don't look like tramlines and you can see where you've went over the same areas. Then eventually I guess you'll be able to make them darker straight off the bat.
I think you might be a little pushed to meet 100 hands before march, I counted like 19 if you included beside chacters and gloves (Yes you're still far ahead of my 5 :/ ). As HEROIC said, don't worry about the lack of replies, we're definetly watching with eagle eyes eager to comment if the chance arises.
yeah, u got some good stuff goin on here. im srry ill sit down and give u a well thought out crit sometime, but im just too busy right now. but it looks good, vast improvement from the beginning of the book.
Oki Oki Oki,

DOnt forget of all those things me and others told ya to drwa, ehh???
DOnt just work on imaginary stuff. Its good to work on ur lines, but get a grip fo doing some anatomy, SOme still life, Draw ur room for exmple, ur caluser, ur bed, ur pencils, ur Table, Ur hands. Draw what u see, thats the way to get ur Imaginative stuff betta.
