    Looks like you visted Polkarbon.com from the mech, that was one of the first websites I visted when I started try to draw figures. You will proberly get more out of Bridgmens books.

    'hey, I forgot how much fun this is'
    Thats what it all about man, keep @ it up and don' ever stop! .

    hope to see more.

    Good to see Bridgeman studies, keep that up. I'd like to see you copy some of Bridgeman's drawings exactly as they appear in the book, without any guesswork (loose, scratchy lines). I know that might sound like a poor use of time but if you can put a drawing down on paper as Bridgeman envisioned it, you are that much closer to understanding why he put the lines where he did

    A good idea for now, is to forget everything you think you know about faces. Learn the right stuff all over again, learn how wide it is, how it is divided, How big the eyes are, where they are placed, etc.

    Sometimes, you have subconscious memory of forms, that, because you haven't really payed SUPER CLOSE ATTENTION your whole life, you aren't Positive what they look like, but you trust your memory anyways. Try to purely describe form without any prejudiced choices. Stick strictly to what you see, then you can start adding what you know.

    Wow, thanks for the feedback everyone.

    I'll do some more Bridgeman studies next flatliner/darkwolf
    Pixeldragoon: Yeah, that's one thing I guess I've forgotten about doing.
    Orozc0: Maybe I need a disciplinary whippin'

    Here are some quick PS images that I made just to get rolling. Too tired to keep on working on the last one. More tomorrow hopefully!

    I see a definite improvement in the PS images from your linework. One thing, the brushstrokes are a bit distracting, but considering I know nothing about photoshop I wouldn't have the slightest clue on how to fix them. The ambiguous Michael Jackson piece is very nice. You've got a good start here.

    An old thing just before I decided I'd concentrate on music. It seems that has changed to be a 50/50 thing. Will scan some new stuff later.

    Hmm. I'm not sure whether or not to invest in a real scanner. I'm using an old combo lexmark which I'm not too happy with.

    Hmm...probably best to keep studying from references when creating your images. Your 'from imagination' images are still a bit shakey, but are getting a little better (the bottom center one on this last one reminds me of Bevis from Bevis & Butthead though ). Life is the best teacher.


    As for some digital help - maybe bump up the opacity of your brushes a bit to force you to choose a mark, and keep it. Because right now in the digital pieces, it seems very shakey and iffy - which doesn't leave the viewer with a content feeling when looking at the work. Similar thing I need to do with my lines is what this would help with (making a mark and leaving it alone - although I feel mine is more nervous habit of 'thinking with the pencil' lol).

    Anywho...looking good, definitely improving, keep at it.
