    hehe, looks good looks good!!!

    finally you got some stars!

    can't really crit something in your last one . looks damn fine.
    but i agree with dreamworker about the nose trail. looks a bit awkward to me.

    but what the hell you got your stars . and you are making some damn fine process ! ;P.

    but keep the nose trail in mind in you next one .

    Wow guys... just saw those stars, I`m speechless. Thanx much!!! I really don`t think that this thread deserve this, but glad You think so!
    Dreamworker – Thanx for kind words and for your vote, mate! Very motivating!
    oma – Thanks a lot, bro! Gonna keep that nose in mind!

    I decided to start doing full figure studies again. Also I`m trying to draw that damn Loomis` mannikins to be able to draw figure from mind, but now they`re just suck. So more refs with figures and portraits are on the way.

    For today – two figure refs from Gordon`s book (there`s a little asymmetry in second one but too tired to fix it)

    Heya Ulver, those stars are well deserved, you've got a very polished rendering technique. I think you need to do some more freehand stuff though, and don't be afraid to loosen things up a bit.

    jam jam, nude's > they are lovely!

    and don't bother the asymmetrical, because only a perfect body is symmetrical .

    nice rendering!!!

    Nice work on these last two figures. The portrait on the one to the left is not totally convincing, though. Moderate asymmetry is good.

    BludHund - Thanx, man! Agree with your suggestions - I`ll try to follow them!
    designboot - Thanx! But what means "chirustro"?
    oma - Thanx, oma! Glad you like it!
    Listing - Thanx, mate! You right about that portrait. Great to see your post here again!

    Update:
    1 - drawing for the Mixed Masters Workshop - Alessandro Algardi "Titan"
    (photoref)
    2,3,4,5 - refs from B. Hogharth`s book - his anatomy is strange a bit, but this approach is different from what I usually do and I think it gives a new understanding of forms.

    good job on the Alessandro Algardi "Titan", and I agree, Hogarth's approach is definitely different

    Ulver,
    If only we all respected the human body as you do. After so many years of trying to understand it myself, (even though sometimes I think I've got it, I constantly find out I'm wrong, Dammmmmit). Oh well, at least there's people like you around to remind me how important it is to understand who we are before I try to create anyone else. Thanks! Really. Thanks. Keep on doin' what you're doin'.

    He means Chiaroscuro - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiaroscuro - a bold contrast between light and dark, usually in a subject illuminated only by a single source.

    I'd forgotten how lovely all your studies are. But I'd still like to see something really breaking out of the pattern...something rough and bold, full of energy!

    Try using a different medium.

    OldNoobie - Thanks much!
    scorge - Thank you! I checked your site and I like your stuff a lot! I`ll have to go a long way to get your level. Great to get these words from you!
    oma - Thank you! Yeah, I need much more time too! Bridgeman anatomy is great, I`m sure - you`ll nail it up soon!
    BludHund - Thank you for explanation! Yeah I have to practice more with a real contrast drawings and I`ll do it soon, for sure Also I do some free non ref stuff from time to time, but now it really really sucks, man and I don`t dare to post it But I`ll break some pattern soon! I hope

    one more study for a Mixed Masters Workshop
    I didn`t try to achieve facial likeness, but I really have to work more on hands and legs

    Thanks for the SB comment. Yep, definitely Botticelli. You should try doing some work off of Rembrandt...it'll help you to embrace a bolder and less rigid approach. Also maybe Van Gogh for color and Caravaggio for composition.

    Hehe, or you could work off of something living...hehe ;D.

    Wow Ulver you work so hard. From my last visit you did a lot of good studies and I see more improvements. I like this portrait http://i61.photobucket.com/albums/h62/Ulver23/50.jpg especially the rendering.
    Keep sharing mate
    ciao

    Finally I have a time to post some stuff again!

    Kicek - Thank you! It looks like Botticelli, but actually it`s not. According to Mixed Masters` workshop information it`s:

    Eugène-Emmanuel Amaury-Duval (1808-1885)
    La Naissance de Venus [The Birth of Venus]
    Oil on canvas, 1862
    77 1/2 x 42 7/8 inches (196.85 x 108.90 cm)
    Musée des Beaux-Arts, Lille

    Think that guy was a true Botticelli fan

    oma - Thank you, oma! Glad you like that piece. You`re keep doing a great work in your SB, soon I`ll find a time to visit it again for sure!
    GeeWesley - Thanks a lot! Gonna keep posting!
    BludHund - Yeah, I want to do some Rembrandt studies soon, his feeling of light is just awesome, it`s gonna be interesting to try. Thanx for constant support!
    Dreamworker - Thanx, mate! Great that you see some improvement!
    aprat - Thank you!

    I`m still going through Hogarth`s book and I think it really helps to get a better feeling of the human`s head and body forms. Just finished a Head chapter - I`ve done a lot of studies, but think it`s not necessary to post`em all here, so I`ll post the most interesting for me pieces, hope you like it.

    These are the mediums that were used: some pencils; water-colour
    +gel pen; pure water-colour whithout any pencil`s lines; pastel; gel pen+pencil.
    It was a first time I used water-colour and these pieces look horrible for me but it was really fun to do. And it was a damn FAST! I used to do slow pencil drawings and it feels weird when drawing is finished in 10 minutes. Also it was great to do a pastel piece - very useful medium for tonal work.

    Ok, some studies of B. Hogarth:

    great studies, with different mediums too you should try vine charcoal, it is a lot like pastel but its easier to correct mistakes.

    Hey man, it's been a long time since I stopped. I see you're still hacking at it but I was expecting a lot more posts. Anyways, just keep them coming and improving. The smeagol piece is nice, I really like this one better though:

    great studies, your hogarth pieces are fantastic but they arent translating into your other works.
    Try not to outline so much in a fully rendered piece if something needs to have an outline, think of how you can do it with a more natural feel, maybe using the space around the shape(ie: Negative space or backgrounds) to express line.

    Also alot of your studies that arent from another artists work, lack strong values, you are seeing the values and using them well from hogarth, but your figure studies are lacking that strength.

    keep it up, hope my words encourage you instead of discourage you.
