    what i meant about the darkness of the pencil is to be aware of how dark your tool can reasonably go. each pencil can only go so dark until it starts to look glossy and ugly. you can never get a pencil or charcoal to be as dark as an actual shadow, in the same way that no type of paint can ever perfectly emulate the beauty of real light. as for the highlights, theyt should be the only part of the study where you have no pencil marks because the white of the paper is the lightest value you can achieve.

    Try and stay away from using blocks and such in enviromental stuff instead use it as a base and build on top of it. Btw that COW piece blew me away
    Keep it up bro.

    You have the makings of a really lovely SB here.
    It's going to be cool to watch you're progress.

    I love the "Spirited Away." study

    Prophet - Thanks mate, I'll try finish that piece. I'll try update more often
    Ian Mack - Cheers. I'll see what I can do. Glad you learned something Im not so bothered anymore about how well rendered my work is. I find it refreshing to be loose.
    Lohan - I see what you mean. Always appreciate your insight!
    Evil Sloth - Will do. Yeah, I find creatures easier to work with, so Im trying to work up my enviroments to that level.
    deappool - Cheers! I'll certainly try keep the studies up!
    tekdj - Thank you for the kind words. I hope I can live up to them! We shall see

    Ack! Its been hectic recently. Been busy with written projects and animating that Ive had little time for personal works. But thats all done so here we go!

    Old Michelangelo sculpture studies:


    A Spirited Away sketch, and a couple of skull studies:


    Anatomy from Albinus:


    School trip to a tank museum! The scribble on the bottom left of the page is the results of drawing details first (lost concentration). The rest are done by drawing the overall shape together.


    Brushpen tank:


    Studies of flags. Preparing for class where Im animating a flag waving. Hardest thing Ive done artwise. Its incredibley tough to get the movement right and the fluidity of a real flag. Caused many a headache and I have the bruise to prove it! I'll see if I can put it up to show someday.

    Hey man, I can see your making a lot of improvement very fast!
    I think that spending more time on getting the initial gesture and constuction of your figures down will pay down in the long run after you have finished rendering them.
    Keep it up bro.

    Hey Bendragon !
    Thanks for the comment in my sb.
    So, you're doing some very nice pencil studies. The values are looking good. Nothing to crit on them.
    But about the illus, i think you could add a focal point or something to help us find where to start. Unless you're looking for something specific, those are a bit confusing.
    Play with contrast and details.
    Keep it up !

    Evil Sloth - Improvements? In what area? I find it hard to tell when I improve. Maybe because I cant remember how the old me works. Thanks for the crits, I'll try to get some more dynamic gestures down. Its quite unavoidable as an animator really.
    DanielC - Thanks. Good point about the focus point, its probably an major weakness in my illustrations

    Heres a wip for the latest Teen Challenge. Its a mascot!

    Hey bendragon !
    Nice updates.
    the colored pic is good.
    Though i think you could work more on your lines. For the pencils for exemple, they look too hesitant. Try some inks or pen and work on it =)
    Keep it up !

    DanielC - Cheers mate. I hope Ive sorted that issue now.

    Didnt get this piece finished in time for the deadline but I touched it up anyway:


    The new teen challenge is a drawing only special. We have to illustrate a book scene. This is of my favourite book His Dark Materials.

    hey nice updates. Your latest piece for the teen challenge is looking good, has a nice composition, although i feel there is a problem with the legs of both children and id suggest maybe a stronger light source...coming from above maybe? to give a dark shadow under the bear, or continue with the light source you have chosen but lay down some darker areas, well thats just my thought anyways, good luck.

    I really like the tanks from the tank-museum trip nice! Its even better that you used ink, and so few lines and still made it work, great observation! =)

    For the last update, the pencil one, Im not really sure where the light comes from judging at the cast shadow I assume its from front, but it is not so clear in the whole picture , that be something to work on
    Although the recent updates is looking really good man! keep it up and thanks
    for you comments

    those tanks are looking really nice, on the kids in the illustration their arms and legs look very thin and lanky in respect to the rest of their bodies, they also sort of look like the pelvis is squished in a bit, very nice composition and sense of action in it though

    Prophet - Very good point there! Now that I look at it, I dont know why I made those legs like that. The values are a bit all over the place arent they? I hope my next pieces are more controlled
    Dile - Cheers Dile! Damn, I got too carried away with the values....
    Invinciblewombat - Thanks mate! Good spot on the pelvises.

    Heres a few life drawings:

    those life drawings are nice. i'm not sure what look you're going for, but when i do life drawing with brush pen or pen and ink i usually force and limit myself to use as little lines as possible. like i said i don't know what style you're going for, but its definately a good/fun/frustrating excercise to improve your line quality. as it is, there are lots of lines that aren't exactly contributing to the figures, so if you minimalize it i think they would look a lot slicker.

    those faces are looking really nice, i bet they would look good polished up in Fineliner too. Brushpens are SOOOO hard to work with, you seem to have done a good job though...The first guy on the 3rd page to the left is done well, especially his face...you've summed up his face with just a few lines...good job...laters...

    Daniel C - Thanks, I think theres still more to get into my lines though!
    Lohan - Always a pleasure to hear your view. I guess I was just trying to record as much information as I could as it was 3-5 minute poses. I felt at the time the brush pen would get me to draw faster. Its definately fun and fustrating
    TheGnoll - Thanks for dropping by! I havent done much studies in a while. Shame on me....
    Prophet - Hey bro! Hehe, I found the brushpen uncontrollable a couple of months ago. But the course leader loves it and got me and the whole class into it. So its only a matter of time before you will tangle with it
    Kronos - Hey Hey! Thanks for replying. And congrats on the TDome (though I should curse you for it)! Hehe! Might see you in the next Tdome, I havent got an idea yet and Im working on other things at the moment. I'll see if I can organise myself in! And good luck on your piece btw!

    Ack! Im really enjoying myself. Started working on a graduate animation film. Its hard work but its fantastic fun! I love the team work there, though I would never had thought it! My sketchbook is currently being marked by my teachers so sorry about the small update. But when I get it back, I'll have some scanning to do.

    Heres a wip. This undergone so many changes in the process that Im quite thrilled with the directions it took!



    P.S. Can you spot something odd in the piece?

    the background is looking great. Nice work on the texture!!

    I really like that dark, moody red of the robot and how it's silhouetted against the sky.
    Nice.

    DanielC - Thanks very much bro. Hope your well.
    Emily G - Thanks for sharing your view.
    Prophet - Cheers mate. I hope this isnt just a one off Yup, well spotted. Whilst texturing, I saw a face in the corner so I decided to define it more and involve it more. The course is very helpful, though a lot of the work has to be down to you and your own studies

    OK, played around with this more and added more details. I may just drop out of the teen challenge as this is proving more fun to me at the moment.
