    Right, I know that the shading is off, and the jaw is inacurate, but for a 5 min speed sketch i thought it was ok.

    Yeah, forget shading for a while. Shading is only going to hold you back until you get the linework down.

    Look at these images of the human skull, try to copy them down closely. Do not be overwhelmed by the complexities of the skull, you're fully capable of articulating all it's intricacies. Work on them numerous times.

    Side View

    (For other anatomy check out this website for more from Henry Gray)

    Keep drawing man, the world is yours to have. Good luck!

    Ok, i need help, i am using painter and my wacom tablet, what brushes should i be using, currently i am using mostly artist oils but i am starting to feel that they might not be helping, so any advice would be much apriciated.

    revender: thanks for the advice man, i was trying to work from memory i have a book called anatomy for the artist which has been a real help, and then i got bored and made the jaw very angular to see how it looked, but yeah i am thinking of going back to the pencil/sketchpad for a while.

    That fat kid:again thanks for the advice, yeah i am really going to try doing that soon, i am just lazy and have been putting it off. so i will just have to do it!!!!!

    That is good to hear. Pencil/pen and paper is the best path to improvement. If you're going to be using the wacom at all, I'd recommend using large basic brushes with no falloff (large could do an arm in 1 to 1.5 strokes of width). I might suggest sticking with greyscale for the most part. Try to establish form, light and shadow.

    But above all else... do what That fat kid you to do (draw, draw, draw, and have fun doing it.)

    Right, admittedly sightly baised but i like the way the helm on this guys looks, so i am going to re draw it and post it as i go, maybe even colour it, then everyone can see where i am going wrong more clearly, so this is just the line art for the MKII helm

    Real nice work. I know we've discussed this already, but I do think the hands are a bit too large...larger than life even?

    Anyhoo, let us BOTH go back to sketchpad and pencil, we will soon rule christchurch.

    Baron out.
