    Heads and figure work looks great. And I really like how that painting from post #99 turned out, really nice color work, I love these hue changes in the skin tones.

    Great pencils, but digi rendering ain't that good. Try to use smoother brushes, do more confident strokes - remember that there's no need for large variety of tones, so try to use just 3 greytones: dark-middle-bright. Try to use textured smudge brush to smooth transition between 2 tones when it's needed.

    Keep up good work mate!

    Yor: Thanks stopping by, man

    Ricardo Robles: Thank you. i think my anatomy has improved from these recent studies, not sure about my colour, i need to force myself to practice it and study more colour theory, i tend to just go with what i am comfortable with... cheers

    MattGamer: Thanks mate, yea totally if you believe in it you can achieve it.. Also i agree with the tutorials thing, when i was learning maya a few years ago there wasnt a whole lot of tutes around, and even less video tutes, so you are right there. If you need a hand with anything maya related feel free to send a pm i know the program pretty well, tho im not on the latest, still running 8.5 at the moment. Also yea p90x looks good, i might do it in a few months, im still wanting to put on a bit more weight, rather than getting into a rigorous cutting/toning program, im sure you will be cut by the end of it tho it looks full on

    jskotte: Thanks man for the compliments, yep im happy with how it turned out i just need to put more effort into improving the colour stuff.

    Seraph Fawkes: Thanks for the tips mate, yep my rendering needs work, i was using opencanvas for about a year or so when i didnt have photoshop so i am still getting used to it, actually i still prefer painting in oc..

    I am definitely more focused on developing better draftsmanship/drawing skills rather painting skills, i guess i need to find a balance somewhere..

    thanks guys just a small post this time..

    these are some quick line studies from photos, about 5 or so minutes each.

    for anyone interesting this is how i approached these figures, i like to use a grid for perspective using m@'s perspective brush, pretty standard approach but i find you get a better result going through each stage. I used to see stuff like this in 'how to draw' books and just stupidly skim over it because i thought it was beginner stuff, but really ive found that the more i draw the more i realist going back to basics is the best thing you can do.

    wow, some really awesome stuff here - I like your sketchbook pages from the beginning, they are very symbolic. What materials did you use for the life sketches of people in your area?

    Saramel: Thankyou, i really appreciate it. Actually, just a humble old ballpoint pen, ive got one in front of me now -papermate flexgrip i use them for life sketches, as it keeps me drawing fast and not going back to try and detail things too much, also you can't erase it so its good practice..

    I mentioned before i also do 3d. There is a great program available called Sculptris which was originally a one man development but has now been bought by Pixologic (makers of zbrush), and is being further developed there. This is an awesome program! Sort of like a toned down, easy to use version of zbrush. If you ever had any desire whatsoever to try 3d sculpting i highly recommend going and grabbing it now while its free. I never really got into sculpting much, definitely more into general 3d with maya but this program is really enjoyable and straightforward
    This was a few hours testing out the program, really rough and messy but i hope to do some more stuff with it soon.

    sweet work in Sculptris. and like you said. back to the basics is where it's all at. nothing is for beginners. i constantly forget rules daily on how i should draw. but also know that you don't have to follow the rules once you've perfected them. that's what makes each of us unique. some break them, some follow them to the tee.

    keep up the great work and i might take you up on that Maya offer if i get lost. really enjoying the tutorial i'm following through, just need more hours in the day to complete all of the lessons! we are learning animation now, pretty sweet how much that program can do! everything from rigging to animating and even rendering. exciting!

    ooh black and whites are my favorite right now. i did a couple and they really help you keep your focus on the lines rather than value, etc etc. those perspective figures are great as well. you're getting it down!

    James Simons: Thanks, they are pretty small anyways drawn in an a5 sketchbook, i might post the next ones i do a bit larger, cheers

    MattGamer: Duuude! Fundamentals all the way, you can never learn them enough..and i agree, the rules are there to be broken, but you have to learn them to know how to break them properly Dont they say style is in the mistakes you make or something like that.. Yep for sure maya is a huge program to learn, i was lucky to learn it at uni and had a great teacher, so i am happy to pass on what ive learnt as well.. im hoping to keep on discovering, there is alot of potential in the world of 3d. Cheers man thanks, your latest b&w is looking great too btw, i can see yur getting the shapes down nicely. sweet stuff.

    Just a few drawings.
