    Studies looking really sweet, as always.
    The A2 piece... I don't know. Great figures considering they are from imagination, but... all (especially the central girl) are very stiff, very emotionless.. faces feel vague, just sort of vacant.
    Maybe the size of the drawing was too large for pencil? It seems there is much difference in the rendering here, ranging from something very smooth to very very coarse, with little cohesion. I also think that the sort of rendering where lines are obvious works best when superconfident about the shapes and your rendering, and I don't think this piece is quiiite there.
    I think a bit of a compositional issue comes with all of them looking out of the picture, as if everything interesting is happening outside of the piece.
    It's an impressive run of knowledge, though!

    Awesome Apdates Archipelago!

    Heh, seriously, they look really good, I dig your studies, they're great.

    Its interesting to see someone's work with such contrasting styles, but I appreciate your work more than I can appreciate my own. Which is a great thing, that's what I should do! If I wasn't at work 24/7 I would post more of my own stuff....ahhh such is life.

    The Hideout is my flavor-ite, are you finished with it? If not, I'd like to see it taken further because its such a cool piece, in my very humble opinion. I think if those candles are lit, they could add some great dimension and lighting play on the figures if rendered further. Or you could drop some back light from the windows, or even just a single source from the upper right onto the woman, with some fallout hitting the figures below.

    And then again you could just post it in the critiques. Good luck, can't wait until your next post!

    There will come a time when you think everything is finished. That will be the beginning.

    gmags - thanks man!
    Ferocia - thank you!! Yeah, its finished... well basically finished to the extent of that I couldnt be bothered working anymore with it And I chose to have the lights unlit to suggest some history to the place, as if the people had stayed there overnight, or several nights, or whatever... but I should definitely experiment abit more with lightsources!

    Alright, heres a pretty small update, there have been days where I havent drawn much, for good and bad reasons but heres the stuff anyway, oh and im going to attend the summer programs at this school: http://www.ateljestockholm.se/ ... I cant wait!

    I got this awesome book called "The Artist's Complete Guide to Drawing the Head" by William Maughan... here are some studies from it:


    Heads from imagination


    quick cast study


    Dune fanart! ! Im nearing the end of the first book omg omg omg... DAMN YOU HARKONNENS!!!

    GREAT update. The last couple pages are my favorite, you look like you had been drawing for a bit before and fell into the zone. Or ascended to the zone. The SP is great; I've never met you, but based on how confident and good that drawing is, I can tell its a great likeness.

    I really enjoyed your acrylic works, although you didn't seem quite as confident as you would be with a pencil. You're a phenom with that pencil, and you're pretty damn good with the brush too, I can tell you're translating from the former to the latter better than most, and definitely more so than myself. You're knowledge of heads/faces, again, serves you well.

    There will come a time when you think everything is finished. That will be the beginning.

    designboot - thanks!
    Call0ps - haha thanks man! cheers!
    Spade - thanks bro
    Ferocia - thanks alot, it feels like im constantly jumping in and out of "the zone" or whatever... one week drawing feels great, the other... not so great... and That SP isnt too good but the likeness is there yeah, although the jaw and neck are messed up
    Badger - thank you!

    first off, an A2 study of bouguereau's painting "Iréne" http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/databa...ge.asp?id=4857
    took about a day to draw


    next, trying to sketch... not working =/






    hogarth studies


    Quick arm studies from a mirror


    And I went outside to sketch a bit yesterday evening and this morning...

    my street (on a hill)


    And a car (about 90 degrees to the left of the drawing above)
    The funniest thing happened as I was drawing this, A big ass tow truck with a huge claw on the back pulled up and parked beside the car, I was like... no way... and the driver comes out, stands behind the car with a big remote and starts steering the claw, picks up the car (smashes the windows) and tells me that I "might want to move" so im like "LOL!1" and yeah, he picks up the car and drives off (barely getting through the two cars on my street that you can see in the first sketch)


    oh and as I was about to scan another acrylic portrait, the scanner hung up (its like, a thousand years old and buggy as fuck) and I couldnt be bothered restarting the computer, so it will have to wait for the next update


    cheers!

    I'd like to see you do something with less line (it's over apparent in both your drawing and painting). You block forms too much (you don't want to be a boring academic). Anyways, great stuff. You have a nice sense for form and solidity of line (experiment with that though). Really terrific improvement.

    Looking nice!
    The acrylic SPs look good, although it seems to me like you're flattening out the top and back of your head a bit. I don't really have anymore crits, but I was wondering, is Battlestar still any good? I stopped watching at the start of the third season.
    Keep it up man!

    Listing - thanks alot man! yeah, my lines are getting abit too much sometimes, although I think its quite possible to do great looking stuff even with heavy use lines, just look at Marko Djurdjevic or Alphonse Mucha, but yeah, Ill try to do some stuff with less line! hmmm... whats so bad about being academic? I like that sort of stuff and I personaly dont think its boring, I can see why some people might think so though, but its just a matter of taste... and isnt painting all about blocking forms? how else would you go about it? anyway, thanks alot! cheers!
    Cup of Joe - thanks! yeah, not spending too much time on the hair, just seems like a waste of time and hell yea its still good! its pretty much more of the same in S3, altough it goes a bit deeper and darker into all the plot lines, and its worth seeing anyway because S4 is going to be the last one and theres going to be a 2 hour movie special released in september about what happened to the pegasus before they found galactica! hah, you can tell I like the show cant you?

    Okay heres an update, not really in chronological order and I didnt scan everything but yeah:

    A2 drawing from imagination yo


    A photo study


    posemaniacs.com



    Masterstudy of http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/databa...ge.asp?id=3438


    I then scanned it in and coloured it in photoshop (dont have a wacom so I did it with a mouse) colouring seemed SO much easier when I did this, ive tried this same process but with colouring something thats not on the computer (Ie a selfportrait from a mirror) but with horrible results... yeah I dont know


    New sketchbook, smaller (about A4) and the paper is sooo nice, although thin, as you can see


    Photostudies and star wars doodles



    playing around



    hands from life


    robots!


    heads from imagination


    alphonse mucha study!


    monochrome acrylic SP


    And ive started doing atleast one colours SP a day, heres the first batch, pretty horrible but you gotta start somewhere!








    thats all, cheers!

    Good update!
    All around good, though you should watch out for head size a bit. And for the photo refs, maybe try softening up your hatching. It looks fine normally, but it's a bit harsh when you're trying to convey soft curves.
    Keep it up man!

    Spade - thanks bro, Im not really worrying about what I need to show to art schools atm, still improving and just enjoying drawing naked people with spears and Aureolas But you are definitely right though, variation = win in terms of portfolios... thats one of the most important things to show when applying for an art school I think.

    Cup of Joe - thanks! head size = one of the hardest things to get right proportionally I think! and for the hatching, yeah the harsh curves are done on purpose, I like it how you almost turn the drawing into a 3D model or something... yeah I dont know, Ill try to experiment abit

    Aight so kind of a big update yo yo homie bros, going to have to split it into two posts

    ...

    tight yo


    first up, A2 study of Bouguereaus pencil study for "flagellation of Christ". you can find it on ARC near the end of his gallery...


    stuff:






    Went to a castle (well, its a big big royal house anyway) called Drottningholm and sketched the awesome sculptures they have there... Minerva ftw






    Crappy dune fanart, reading Dune Messiah now!


    and a whole bunch of sketches from imagination
