    arvalis - yeah, i dont know why but i have trouble drawing that faceplate, i was trying to just get an old style rifle, obviously i've gotta work on it more

    guitarjames - thanks, youre right - i should be doing more simple excercises like that

    fedezz - thanks, it was a very useful crit. I've thought about doing that before but i never thought it would benefit me that much, but i guess its worth a try. I'm out of ideas right now anyway.

    Thanks for the support guys, you don't know how much your advice helps me, even if i don't always seem to get it right away These are reffed from the first page of my book, I was trying to let the pose design the character.

    the environments looks good but the anatomy from the mind still need some work. This might help you, whenever you do a sketch from ref, do it again from memory. Then compare the two to see what the differences are and what needs to be addressed. It also forces the brain to remember the new things and get rid of the old stuff that shouldn't be there.

    I think for your anatomy drawings you need to keep in mind that people are not made of rubber. While they have joints and such, some bones of the human body are actually straight.

    I'm so jealous.

    hey,
    Enviro looks like it could turn out nicetry adding more of a background right now it looks like a big face.With the faces try doing one long one than 10 little ones.Also try pushing yourself to the edge and do something a little out of your comfort zone.

    keep it up.james

    Oldnoobie - thanks, thats a good idea

    Kaoru - thank you, will work on that

    guitarjames - alright, thanks, going to be doing some new stuff over break

    Going to Disneyland for Christmas, maybe that can help get me out of drawing slump mode. I know this update is pretty bad, but i figure i should go ahead and show my weak times as well.

    See you all in a week.

    Nice sketchbook! Lotsa stuff.

    One tip I can give is to always try to tackle something you have difficulty with in each drawing you do. You don't have to conquer it, but each engagement will bring you closer to understanding whats happening.

    You're lines seem stiff and uniform, get a few grades of pencil. I typically work with a 2H and an HB for a wider range of shades. Loosen up your lines and continue to have fun!

    Keep up the work!

    don't worry, we all go through a slump every so often. I usually find it helpful to change subjects or mediums during these times. The important thing is to work through it, even if it is just making scribbles Anyhow, have fun at Disneyland

    I think with your pencil sketches, you're having the same problem as rayk - not really enough of the variety of the pencil lines.

    Enjoy Disneyland, maybe sketch some random people there for practise

    Dude, you throw down all these perspective lines then have no linear shapes. Keep lifedrawing, as always. And draw some stuff that looks awesome, that usually gets me out of slumps, even if I feel like it looks like shit later, at least you'll have fun with it.

    TomCardin - Thanks for the ideas and encouragement, definately going to work on it

    Oldnoobie - thanks for the kind words

    Kaoru - yep, gotta work more on lines

    guitarjames - thanks for the encouragement

    Blue Severin - there IS method to my madness, you'll just have to wait and see... thanks for the idea, i kind of did that on my vacation

    Back from disneyland, i had a blast. It was great to just not draw at all for a few days, and relax, as well as observe the world around me. I did get a lot of drawing done in the car one the way to and from disneyland. Some stuff is reffed from books, some is from memory, some is reffed from old figure drawings. I think I'm getting back in the groove of things

    Love the sketch of the girl in jeans...her proportions are a bit off on her arms and her position looks a bit unnatural but her form is really nice and she really pops off the page because of the weight and dimension she has.

    Her clothes are well integrated with her body but you could look at putting some wrinkles where she is twisting and bending...still she seems naturally clothed where some of your work with armor and clothing previously doesn't seem to work and flow with the figure.

    The shading on her as well seems improved from the cross hatching you are using to shade your latest figure studies. Keep trying to get the shading to follow and flow with the contours of the figure, it really helps pop that form off the page or screen.

    Look forward to seeing more!
