    I like how your attacking more interesting poses, keep it up and definetly get some friends to pose for you. Even if you already made the pose you want, by having somone imitate it in front of you it really helps anyone out when making corrections and double checks...

    I can tell you are really putting the key points on those DVD's into practice. I like how you are capturing these characters in mid pose, like they are half way through their full action....really gives them personality!

    haha awesome! ape/beetle and nazi jelly fish. Keep drawing crazy things like that! I commend you for posting random stuff and not being afraid to show them with pride =) As for anatomy you definitely need work.

    Work on your foundations a bit. its a bit boring but when artists start out, do you know why they draw the boring tea cups, wine bottles, cylinders, cubes, and cloth? so they can get better at observation and proportions as well as understanding light and applying the right amount of medium on the canvas.

    I like what you have because your not afraid to show your early stage work and that shows that you have strong characteristics as an artist. Keep up the good work and never stop drawing! =)

    Just draw your ass off. Whatever you do, don't -- stop -- drawing...

    I am always too lazy to scan...

    It has been a while since I have posted to my CA.org SB. Thanks Rabid and Maerrick for the awesome input. I have been taking some art classes offered through various organizations in Raleigh, NC. I am trying to get better at telling a story with my drawings more than them being stiff and just floating in space. It is hard, but it is fun. Thanks for visiting my SB, I will be updating more often, I have 2 sketchbooks filled since I last posted so....

    Long Necks

    It may have been all the beer I drank this past holiday weekend, but I drew a couple long necked characters.

    Sophi

    It is time for me to step away from the characters floating in space with no interaction. But for a last hoorah! here is Sophi.

    Still Learning

    I have been doing a lot of studies and life drawings to improve my understanding of what I see in my mind and around me. I am slowly getting away from floating figures, but it is hard. I am drawing a lot larger, a couple of these were done on 11x14 Bristol.

    Many thanks to all of you who I learn so much from on this site, and thank you Massive Black for this site's existence.

    Learning Photoshop

    I begin Bobby Chiu's digital painting class tomorrow. I am hoping to gain much improvement from it and plan to really work hard on every piece of knowledge he gives me.

    So here are a couple things I have been trying to paint lately.

    Learning by doing.

    Whoa... I'm liking! I'm seeing a progressive trend toward better work which means you are training yourself right. #1 in Post 59. Good execution of warm and cold complimentary colors!

    Welcome to our lil sketch group!
    I hope you will update more often from now on
    I can see a steady progress from the start of your sketchbook.

    The points I would suggest to study in priority are: volume and dynamics.
    Volume:
    Start with shapes simpler than the human body, under different lightings.
    Practicing some clay modeling could help a lot too.
    Dynamics:
    Draw tons of very loose sketches of bodies in movement, exaggerate them.
    Train your eye to tell if they are believable.

    Waiting for your next update to chime in again!

    Thanks SSG!

    Thanks for the comments. I agree gesture is a weak point for me. And yes I have been very lazy with the scanner. But I have a good excuse. I was in Bobby Chiu's Digital Painting class via schoolism.com for 14 weeks which took up all of my spare time outside of work. I also was preparing for my wedding which just happend 10/25. The last month before my wedding was a nightmare, but worth it.

    So it is back on track for me and that is why I wanted to join a SSG to help with crits etc.

    Thanks again SSG peeps! Will update tomorrow for my first day on the SSG job. hehe

    SSG WIP #1 War Elf Pencils

    Goal: Add a battle beast and some environmental elements with the character. Take all the way to finished digital painting.

    I am going to take my time and post updates as I go to get feedback from my SSG buds or anyone else that can help. I am going to redraw him several times to work on the things I need to learn like gesture, anatomy, and form.

    Thanks for your time.

    SSG, what is our official name and link that we should have in our signature?
