    Thanks for stopping by my book.

    Okay, your proportions and anatomy need attention. The figures are all really short. I think the average height is about 7 or 7.5 heads high. Most here are about 5 -ish. Instead of pumping out so much work, try taking the time to work on on or two and really make it work.

    Keep practicing and posting

    MrBobMarley - Thanks for the advice! Yeah, i think i have that tendency because up until about 6 months ago all i did was cartoony stuff, whether it be calvin and hobbes, anime, or comic books, so my proportions are all over the place. I'll definately work on it!

    Here are some head gestures from watching an episode of Angel and another basic value study. I tried to make this one look prettier. I'm almost finished with that Royo study (i only get to work on it for 1.5 hours a week) so i should have it done in a week or two. Sorry for the small update, i was kinda burned out today :/.

    EDIT: Forgot to do a SP today! Here's one before bed.

    Asoir - Thanks! I spent weeks admiring Mindcandyman and then i realized i should have been drawing all that time >.>;

    All of these are just doodles that i did today (I go walking every morning and in the car on the way to the walk i draw... at 7AM). I should have some studies up tonight at the regular time.

    Fun

    Finally i just printed out that ron lemen page and worked from it. Its really nifty. Then there are some proportion studies from civardi. Still having lots of trouble with it. But it's fun to learn! Keep the crits coming, i'm enjoying it!

    Oh, i'm trying to take longer on my studies and make them more accurate and less gestural... but these were done in the car.

    You are insane with the posting! Keep it up and you'll be golden. BUT!...I secong MrBobMarley. Work on a couple of things and make them good and move on. You'll learn alot more by taking your time and noticing where you mess up at.

    Saikin - Thanks. Yeah. I am really bad at taking my time on things. Twenty minutes is tough. Anyway, its one of my top priorities to calm down and take a little longer to show what i can really do, which even i dont really know.

    Um, i spent longer on fewer doodles and some civardi heads. I then did a horrible paintover of one of the doodles that took an hour without any real progress. Then i did a 15 minute island because i saw pirates of the carribean 2 today . My goal is to spend at least 1 hour on 1 drawing or painting every day... the horrible paint-over is todays.

    Spunk-licious

    By popular demand i only have a few things today that i spent about 10x longer on. A dude from my civardi book that took me about 2 hours. I still dont really like his face, but i was tired of working on it. After i decided not to work on it any more i spent 30-45 minutes goofing around in photoshop trying to get the values right. Color was too complicated yesterday so i stuck with B+W. I also did another speedpaint - this one was ~30 minutes.

    Here's a progression so you can see my process for digital painting. Its fun because i'm just trying to figure it out based on what ive seen people here do, but i'd still like critique because i dont know what i am doing. I was going for a haunted forest with trees made out of bones... but i dont think they really look like bones. I spend a little over two hours on it and by my meter that's enough. I'm starting to enjoy this taking-my-time thing though... more than i thought i would.

    You should look at more pictures of bones while youre drawing that: bones aren't just black and white, they have a natural yellowish hue to them. Study the shading, shape, etc, and then try to translate that over to your painting.

    yo
    i think you could benefit from some some contrast in your traditional drawing, and maybe try to clean up some of your lines, so they pop out more

    i'm liking the colors in the last piece. pretty cool stuff. keep up with those studies! i oughta do some myself

    Jett - Thanks. Yeah, a lot of my drawings do look kinda flat. I'm trying to push the darks more but i guess i need to use a darker pencil.

    Armor dude was a doodle that took like 2 hours. Some minor studies and the last one i have no excuse for.

    Edit:There's my 15 minute paint-over for a new avatar... i was tired of my old one.

    Life-a-tron

    I worked more on my royo study today but i didn't finish... so i don't get to until august. The first half hour of figure drawing tonight was 30 second poses... it was definately a good warm-up! Then some 5's, and then some 20's to finish. The one where it looks like he's kicking himself was completely unintentional >.>. I was trying to focus more on accuracy, proportions, and line quality than value this time, which is why i only got 1 shaded in.

    EDIT: Some more work on the friendly forest. Trying to make it look less friendly and more foresty.

    ouch

    This is one of those posts that makes you wonder why i posted it at all. The answer is daily/honesty. I didnt get much time to draw today (none actually), so i just did some quick ideas before bed. They are all based on scenes i saw today and i may take them further later, but for now i was just getting the idea down. I would still love critique on the last post... or this one i guess.
