    hey, first of id like to say i love the last one. profile of some muscle anatomy.
    red and blue pen only? the only thing i have to say right now is about the gun you made. try to think of how it will all work. if i took that mechinism apart, would it work? would i be able to take it apart? it would be helpful if you knew about how real guns work. (btw the colt or w/e handgun looks awsome) im sure you can find some cutout drawings of guns somewhere on the net. if not go to barnes and nobles or borders and hopefully there will be a book of guns that has cutout pics. they are really cool.

    cool, thanks gassnake. Ya that last one is just red and blue gel-pens.
    Thx for the tips about the gun; maybe I'll spend some more time trying to build that thing from the inside out sometime.

    Here's some more, older studies from books, and some from life:
    (sorry for the wrinkled paper. I accidentally spilled water all over them.)

    Welcome to CA voxelfog! First off, I can't really make out much of what's going on with the face in the first one, and the legs look like they are being viewed from a different angle then the arms. I suggest looking over some anatomy/proportion. This is a great site to look over.http://www.saveloomis.org/ Most importantly, keep drawing! (Oh, and awsome handgun.)

    thx for the crits, joe. You're right, I definately do need to work on my anatomy and proportions. Proportions especially are a constant stumbling block for me. Anyone got any good exercises / tips to help with this?

    neck muscle studies from a pic on the internet. I tried to keep everything as clean as possible, since I have a tendancy to be very sketchy with my lines. I think I succeeded in that aspect, but the shading didn't end up being what I hoped. I also had to add a few extra muscles to hide a few screw-ups...

    More random ink-splats, then inked over, conforming to the shapes of the ink. These are really fun, and I end up drawing things I would never think of otherwise. Lots of interesting shapes in chaos. The whole thing wouldn't fit on my scanner, so this is all you get.

    Cool stuff! Good start and welcome to CA. Pen works look real good. Work more on your anatomy studies, the ones you ve started look good already. Keep it up and posted.

    Haven't updated in a long time (aside from that last cthulu post), so here's a big dump from my sketchbook.... These were all probably done within the last 2 weeks or so.

    Some of these are from my figure-drawing class, some are just random people in restaurants. Also tried doing a bunch of random, quick thumbnails...

    That last batch was nice! Ink is pretty damn tough to work with... takes a lot of control. The last page with all the different poses was especially nice.

    My biggest critique on all these inks (outside of proportional issues which I've found generally just improves with practice) is that you should slow down just a tad bit when youre doing your hatching and try to keep your lines straight and evenly spaced. It generally makes things look a lot nicer Its all about line quality

    Yeah, proportion is something I always have problems with, and I'm not sure how to get better at that. I guess I just need to make an effort to analyze the relative sizes of what I'm drawing before I put my lines down.

    That last page was all 1-2 minute poses so I was pretty rushed, hence the crappy hatching. For some reason they don't like to do any poses > 10 minutes in my figure drawing class. Most are 1-2 minutes w/ maybe 1 or 2 5-10 minute poses per class.

    A'ight... time to go practice hatching and proportions....

    Latest thing I've been working on; Just a sketch I started painting over, and now I'm not really sure where to take it so it's not just a floating head.... (still working on detailing the face right now, so there's no eyebrows, etc...)

    This is something I've been working on for a couple weeks. It's a grain of pollen at extreme magnification. I used modo, mudbox, 3dsmax and photoshop, so it's not exactly drawn or painted...

    This will most likely be part of the liner art for an album my band is putting out...

    It really good to see a different type of pen technique in your drawings. Must have been really honed. I like how you overlap useing the pen to good measure. Glad I found this little gem ,nicer if it were a bigger gem.

    Transition from Art Critic to Artiste - Diligence, that's all I need.

    I got to say, I am highly impressed (okay, envious ) with the drawings clearly showing you've put effort and thought into fixing problems you or others have noticed. Shows in this sketchbook too, the drawings have gotten a lot finer.

    hey buddy

    nice studies you have here

    i like to see that you finish almost all of your drawings ... that is really good, sometimes sketches can kind of hide your weakness ... you only know if you really know what you are doing when you try to finish it

    keep posting!
    best regards

    NicoRaven: It's mostly brushpen, with the occasional hatching done w/ an extra-fine pigment liner pen.
    dmitri: Thanks! Wish I could see some of that progress, lol.
    bruno: That's funny, one of my biggest pet peeves is that I almost never finish anything I do! Thx for the kind words, tho.

    Here's some sketches from the past two nights. Some hogarth head studies and other random sketchings.
