    There's a very noticeable difference between ref work, and things straight out of your head.
    It's important to close the distance between the 2 when one wants to be a concept artist, and with enough practice and understanding of anatomy and lighting this should happen.

    I like your line quality, the way you try different media and your studies. Keep at it!

    Forscience, deadred: Thx! Will definately keep @ the studies.

    Hamsta: Yeah, I usually get discouraged doing stuff from imagination cause it never turns out very good. Not sure how to close that gap, aside from just keeping at the studies, but I'm trying!

    Flipnastywebby: Of course I do. Doesn't everybody?



    Here's stuff from last night. I took a different approach than usual; just sat down on the couch and told myself I was going to just draw mindlessly without putting any thought into it, and have fun. Was a nice change of pace, and got some good stuff out of it, I think.

    some sketches from this weekend.

    A building from my small town's "downtown"

    Cup of coffee on a table. Tried to get the reflection of the chess board on the cup; kind of hard for me w/ pen.

    And some strange sketches from imagination. Screwed up the ocotopus-head person's shoulders.

    Some bridgeman nose studies.... nothing too fancy.

    I've been trying to do some self-portraits in acrylics, and keep getting hung up on the nose, so I thought these might help.
    Also tried out my new toned sketchbook w/ prismacolor pencils.

    What can I say, you are getting great advice. There is a difference between the reference and the original material, and that's okay for a while. I would suggest going back and redrawing some heads after practicing bridgeman...that way you aren't trying to think up new ideas while focusing on the correct proportions. One thing, note the back of the head, a lot of us draw the forehead and back of the head a lot smaller than it actually is...and the hair sits on TOP of that...odds are if it seems slightly larger, its more correct. As for still life, great work, paintings and sketches are well done! Just always remember perspective and relative proportions, keep it up!

    I was sick all weekend, so I didn't get to draw much... but here's what I got:

    took leadster's advice and tried to do some heads w/ no ref. Don't think it turned out very well, but I'll try again. Drawing from imagination is really hard for me.

    Also, did some bridgeman mouth studies, and then some of my own, w/ no ref.

    And then a watercolor / pencil / brushpen sketch I did in the coffee shop this weekend.

    hey there

    keep practising your anatomy techniques because you actually have some really good rendering skills, when you tightin up ur proportions you will be a really solid artist.

    keep going

    Another SP. This time in watercolors.... screwed up eyes and nose.
    Man, watercolors are *hard*!
    Also, I was born unable to paint noses!!!! Maybe I should just do nose SP's from now on, until I get it right.

    yeah watercolur take along ime to master, so keep away from them and stick to something like charcoal or pastel. not a bad attempt however. find a good anatomy book and do some drawings from those.

    Hey, nice improvements. I only have one question though, the dude in post #12. Is it Göran Persson, the ex prime minister of sweden?

    crisis: thx. The guy in post 12 was just some guy @ a restaraunt around here. I don't *think* he was Goran Persson... ...although I do see the resembelance.


    a portrait of my girlfriend, done in oils and a charcoal drawing of a plaster cast of an eye.

    Gotta work on skin-tone colors. I don't think I had enough contrast in the colors I mixed, so it looks real blah... eyes are wonky too..

    Lookin' real good, man! Your traditional painting studies are particularly nice - great color and light on the still life stuff :-). If I were forced at gunpoint to offer critique, all I would say is that you should keep your eye on the features and proportions of the skull - it seems like you might be locked into a mental perception of the human face that isn't in harmony with what you really 'see' (this is most evident in your watercolor work of your girlfriend - the body often has the natural feel of observational/life drawing, and then becomes rigid and iconic in facial construction). Don't be afraid to 'ghost in' linework until those proportions feel natural, and try to forget what you think you know about the face (particularly a familiar face!) and really *see* it.

    Lovely stuff! ;-)

    some stuff from figure-drawing class.
    We do *really* short poses, which is frustrating because..... well I like to draw slow...

    These were done in 10 minutes each, which is the longest poses we ever do.

    Great painting as always! Nice progress on the life-drawing, too; the deeper perspective on the first image's leg is always tricky and you've really nailed the flow. Don't forget to keep a close eye on your head proportions; the first pose in the second image has it right, but the second pose is starting to pinch a bit. Looks like one of your friends needs a haircut. . .

    Keep it coming!
