    Goodbye: so... does that make your post a paradox?

    Nyx: Thanks! I think I'm using Barontieri's brushes. The specific one is just a standard brush included in his pack, though, I think.

    Ostrander: Thanks, good to know that I'm making some progress I'll try and post some more, but most of my drawings nowadays are just thumbnails for graphic design projects. School can be so evil...

    Viramz: Yeah! Sesshoumaru! Thanks for dropping by and commenting!

    Madcat: Usually I start by drawing the general shape of the face, then the eyes. Man, I'm so bad, I haven't even looked through the book yet and it's almost due...

    hpslashluvr: Thanks for the crit! I'll try to pay more attention to the values in the future.

    frostsnake: Yay the Inuyasha love! Thanks for stopping by!

    Anthriel: Wow, lineweight eh? That's a big step... But I can totally see the beauty of varying it. I'll try to keep that in mind. Thanks for the crit!

    Tigermilk: Thanks! I'll try to get in some more drawing.

    dariocoelho: Thanks! I'm not really sure I understand what you mean by drawing like I paint...? I think I'm a lot more precious with my drawings cuz I can't just paint on top of it, and I tend to stiffen up.

    Sorry for the lack of posting. I'm in my last year of visual communication design, and the number of projects they give out at once is staggering. I have a poster due tomorrow night and one on Wednesday, and a flash movie due on Thursday which I haven't even started on... But at the same time, I have to bring a portfolio to ACAD on the 20th so they can determine what year to put me in if I decide to go there for character design after I graduate. Maybe that'll motivate me to draw more

    Anyhoo, enough excuses, I've done a little work on the portrait so he's not so pasty-lookin and weird-lipped.

    Hey Spiffiness! Your paintings are strong and your figure studies are good. You have a good sense of color. You have shown a good sense of depth with the application of global light in most of your paintings, escpecially the one for Takeshi Kaneshiro.

    Thanks, Azrael, JERI, and Tigermilk! I'll try and refine the thumb. :p

    Small, small update on Neil Jackson, and a WIP on a character portrait of Moiraine from The Wheel of Time series. Finally, something from my imagination, eh?

    I like what's going on, spiffy. The thumb looks better on Neil. And those eyes look great on the women. Nice job!

    The fabric on the suit for that one painting looks fantastic! I would love to see more of these - and I do like the "painterly" brushwork, with the blending not too refined or worked...

    well. nicole kidman has got two strange different nostrils

    Hi there!
    in your pencilwork you sometimes do a bit too many strokes do define one form.
    but the colored ones, especially the last ones, are really nice!
    cheers!

    Updated Jan 19

    Thanks for the comments! Sorry about the lack of updates. I've been busy with school work and I thought I lost everything in an accidental format of the wrong hard drive. I managed to recover most of the stuff I need though, with the occasional corrupted file. Pascallo, yeah, I know I tend to "overdraw," as my drawing prof would say, but I can't seem to just lay down a line and stick with it. Maybe I should practise just making one good line... Actually, I really need to draw a lot more than I have been, especially since I'll be going to the Vancouver Film School in April to learn 3D animation right after I finish my degree.

    Worked some more on Neil Jackson and Sesshoumaru, and started a portrait of Demandred from The Wheel of Time.

    Hi Spiffy,
    Neil is coming along nicely. On the 3rd one, Demandred, I would have a look at some different clothing for ref. See how the folds and creases lay. It might help a little a little. Right now everything is very smooth and there are no folds or creases. I'd also try and push some highlights on key places on his face (ie, his nose, forhead, etc). Keep posting!

    New stuff from VFS!

    Thanks for the advice and the comments, Ostrander & Anthriel!

    I've started school at VFS and I'm loving it! I'm learning so much and it's so exciting! I think I've improved tremendously at life drawing, and it's only been 2 months!

    Here's my finished Sesshoumaru wallpaper painting, a couple 20 minute life drawing studies, and a WIP of my composition assignment on colour that's due tomorrow.

    There's more to come, but I probably won't have time to post them until next week.

    Comments & critiques appreciated!

    Nice work mate! I'm glad you are happy with your school and improving your life drawing skills is indeed extremely important. I especially like the one of the hand and shoulder.

    Keep posting!

    Thanks, Anthriel and Tytseng!

    Natalie Portman painting and character design stuff. I have more drawings, but I'm too lazy to scan them...... Also a class assignment making our own version of Mr. Incredible.
