    rayk - thanks, i usually do that too. Thanks for pointing out the vanishing point issue, i'll work on that

    n1va - aw theres always SOMETHING to crit Thanks for dropping by and giving me a boost

    james - thanks. Those were actually done in the car, hence the bad lines. Will try to work with bigger brushes.

    Stuff going on so not much time, doodles from school for ya. Trying to invent poses with my knowledge of anatomy and design characters. Also trying to do more emotions in faces/poses.

    very cool stuff, is that the real texture of the paper you work on?

    hey,
    like the dogs, on faces try and do some looser ones with the side of your pencil building them up with values.I like the girls poses , really look 3d and the guy with four wings is the best , continue developing that .

    keep it up .james.

    jdeegs - thank you, time is the only problem

    hyptosis - well its not that textured, but it's recycled so it looks like it, its good paper though

    james- thank ye, will do

    kind of a lame class tonight. We started with two 15 minute poses and then did two 30 minute poses... Was supposed to be costume for halloween but the costume wasn't very inventive, and the model wasn't that great :/. Eh, i had some fun trying out new stuff, brushpens and super graphic style with charcoal. Tomorrow i might have some free time to draw! Just maybe.

    Glad to see you joined in. Good speed on that one. As far as the landscape goes, perspective is a bit wonky on the bridge. A man of wisdom (Coro) once told me that a good way to get better at enviros is to take screen captures from movies and copy those. The movie guys already figured out the lighting and atmosphere, so you're copying from the best money can buy. I think it would help you tighten up and get a better feel for those things.

    Thanks blue severin, thats a really good idea, all i need now is the time to do it

    Life drawing, last two were 30 min each. I was using watercolor brush pens on the early ones and the later ones were charcoal + water with a brush, very fun. First time i've tried that.

    Man, you're an update machine Gestures are looking sweet, just mind the placement of the features, right now they look flat and no following the volume of the cranium. And I'd love to see that self portrait updated.

    hey ,
    ?I like the fourth one , nice and simple. Good to be trying new mediums out .. the last one looks a little stiff and you have made the freatures lines to harsh ( spmthing you do on quite a few of your faces) , like on the halloween one you have just hinted the nose and it looks better.

    keep it up .james.

    hey ,
    bridgeman is good, the background on that guy is awsome but i think the mans wings look a bit flat try adding some curve on them. I like the last one but i think it would look better with a smaller sword because its distracting my eye right now.

    keep it up .james.

    hey,
    Its looking better but i think it looked cool when he looked as if he was flying.Bring some detail into the floor like litlle trees, cause it sort of looks like he is standing on the floor ( unless thats what you wanted)

    keep it up .james.

    jdeegz - thanks for stopping by, yeah i think i'm going to keep working on it, may do a diff drawing of the same char though and work on that one

    guitarjames - Alright, thanks for the input, tell me what you think of this one

    Some figures, no model tonight so we drew students. Ink and two charcoals. The First ones were 3 and 15 min and the other two were 30 min. More work on the angel, not sure if i like this direction. I may do a different drawing with a more exciting compo and make that one more... finished.

    hey
    I like the lifedrawings but the charcol ones have small legs .Dont be afraid to make them longer also the girls arm is small and the mans arm looks a bit bendy remember underlying bones.'Rant'

    the new digi is looking really cool , could turn into a really good piece IMO. maybe make the Dark clouds? on the side less symetrical. Then start refining it

    keep it up .james

    I looked over the first page of this, then skipped to the last page, and WOW. You have improved by leaps and bounds. I look forward to more updates from you, and I can tell from your regular posting that I have lots to look forward to!

    guitarjames - thanks for the constant critiques. Some of the proportions may have been off a little but they weren't long-legged people, but i do agree about the bendiness, gotta work on that. I'm not sure if i want to continue that one of the seraphim or start a new one with a diff/more exciting pose, but thanks for the crits.

    hyptosis - thanks man

    Listing - thanks, will do

    leiana - thanks for feeding the fish, and welcome to the boards

    more messing around with life drawing. I feel bad for not posting yesterday but i DID kill lots of zombies...

    6 -2min, 3 -5min, 2 -15min, 2 -30min i believe. Last one was pastel, rest were charcoal or sanguine conte. I had lots of fun with toned paper

    EDIT: Here's a new version of the seraphim

    Lots of improvement and hard work here. I love to see that.
    See what you can do with a single line. I see a lot of hesitance in your gestural/figure drawings; find the beauty of a curve a follow it from head to toe. Try working straight in pen or ink with a brush and don't worry so much about speed, but communicating the beauty of what you're seeing. Show us the grace of the contrapasto and the fluidity of the angles, for example.

    The progress here is great. Take your time :.

    Some deer studies and a piece of paper for you. The paper was fun, kind of meditative. I was really just practicing contour but then i decided to shade it. 1 hour ish.

    hey there! I just scanned over the last page of your SB and there has been great improvement! You got the idea of the fluidity of line in those animal sketches.

    Your lighting is very good but I'd love to see some more linear structure like that paper you just posted. You can demonstrate the light source in a linear drawing by varying the thickness for shadow/light areas. It'llt ake some time but you'llg et the hang of showing the contour AND shadow AND depth with just one line.
