    Good to see that you're working on drawing with value and not just line. Really concentrate on getting the the different shapes of value drawn in the correct shape, and the right value. That will help your forms read easier, and it will help to see measurements that are off. I'm going to have to bust out some pencil sp's now, it's been too long.

    Good work keepin up with the figure drawings, you're getting better all the time. This newest SP is lookin better than the last, value wise. I think there are still some proportion issues, but that'll just come with more practice. Watch the angle of the jaw and make sure the eyes feel like they're on the same plane.
    Keep up the solid work, man!

    Improving but really work out those portraits, they're consistently cartoony.

    listing - yep, those are all from my head so they aren't really that great, mainly just practicing proportions/ways to make heads look 3d, but i'll work on the realism.

    Figgas, last three were 20, 30, 30min. Porfolio day is this weekend so i may be unable to post for the next few days... we'll see.

    i cant tell if it is becuase of yourpoint of view or what, but the very last one, her left leg looks really odd haha. the 2nd to last picture is great, i really like that one, with the crossed legs.

    do you have a modeling class in your school? seems like you do alot of model work and i wish i was able to do more haha

    Do not, ever, under any circumstances, not have fun.

    hey ,
    I like the first two charcol ones , the last ones legs are strange , ones really big and the others small ( probably realized that already ) watch out for that and make sure the lines are right before shading.

    yeh these have really shown lots of improvment keep it up .james.

    Nice updates, I like specially the left figure here. Strange legs in the last one were already mentioned. Still, the volume of that area looks nice...
    Good luck with portfolio day!

    This one stood out to me http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1160244304, the contrast between the smooth rendering of the body and the texture surrounding it and the haphazard looking lines. No crits this time. I tried to do a few SPs, only did two, they're both terrible. I don't even think I'm gonna scan them, I've been getting into this theoretical stuff I've been reading. I saw you looking in my book while I was updating, that wasn't a updateless bump I did, I accidentally hit return before I was finished. Now I'm worried that a bunch of other people that checked before I finished are gonna think I'm a douche who bumps his own thread. Just do whatever exercises seem to help you towards your goals, whatever their form, is my vague advice for today.

    whew

    jdeegs - nope, i have to go to a community college for my class. I used to do it at a community art center that has weekly workshops. Its tough to find good life drawing opportunities.

    james, fedezz, and blue - thanks for the c + c guys.

    armando - thanks. I don't remember when i was looking in your book, i'll stop by soon though, don't worry.

    ahh back from portfolio day. It was much better this time around. Instead of telling me what kind of work to do, they told me *which* of my pieces they thought should go in. That felt good. It appears that codenothing had it right when he said 80% quicker/looser ones, at least for animation programs. One of the colleges i'm looking at i would have to go for illustration so they want longer ones. At any rate, i'll be doing some more loose stuff from now on, which i like more anyway .

    Just to complement you guys, pretty much all of the critique they gave on my work is the same stuff you have been saying, so keep it up, you're helping me improve far more than if I wasn't on here! Thanks for the support.

    I'm still planning on posting the portfolio that i took, but i don't have time right now to take pictures of everything, so instead i leave you with car doodles.

    this one http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1161192656 is quickly drawn and accurate, caught the character of the pose, so I bet they liked that.

    Blue Severin - Thanks, i should have included that one but i didn't. I was going for longer pose ones but the animation guys like quickies more. Now that i learned that i might put that one in.

    jdeegz - bridgeman, thanks, looking at laguna college of art and design and calarts, and kind of pasadena art center. I'm flattered, but it's really only the product of a year of hard work. I mostly cartooned/did bad drawings until a year ago. Life drawing and anatomy studies are the key. Listing and Ammoburger have been doing that much longer, and are also my age.

    Life drawing tonight. Some one minutes, 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minute, 15 minutes, and an hour.

    hyptosis - thank you very much

    james- yep, gotta do more structure, thanks for the crit

    I've been working on a portrait of a girl for a few weeks, but i didnt' want to post anything from it until her parents gave the OK. So here are the photo-ref studies and then the final portrait, from life. My first commissioned artwork
    I was going for low contrast because she is 12.

    The portraits are really improving. Great work on the last one, especially. Concentrate on your quality as you're putting down the forms.

    listing - thanks as well. I'm not quite sure what you mean but if you're talking about making the tones more controlled then i will do that

    Mike study, kind of silly, about an hour~

    Damn, I've missed a ton of posts... Fat lady's life drawings are looking good, they feel very "meaty". As for the commissioned portrait, some of the sketches are fantastic, your pencils are looking tight. The final could use some more volume around the eye area. Looking good anyway.
    Keep it up!

    Fish, really good! Lots of figures and anatomy, nice to see you keep pushing on it.

    I think a few enviros/vechicles/colour is needed to spice things up a bit however. Maybe even do some figure + enviro, really good exercise that benefits both.

    Hey man, good to see you're working hard. Like the pirate lady. Make sure you get your limb thicknesses right. It's kind of like your making every anatomic bulge into a big globe. definitely improving though.

    fedezz - thanks. I agree, it was a challenge to draw someone so young, because i wanted to push the contrast there to put more volume, but i couldn't without making her look older. Gotta work on that.

    rayk - thanks for pointing me in another direction, i have been really focused in on people lately, will start expanding a little

    blue severin - i see what you mean. I guess i'm stylizing it a little to emphasize the anatomy and get it into my head, but that makes it less realistic. I just got hale's anatomy lessons from the great masters, so maybe that will help fix it

    Ah its been too long since i've drawn cars. For a long time last spring (before this sb) i was into drawing lots of them - it really helped me with perspective and contour lines. i should work on some other vehicle types as well. I've actually been working on this enviro for a while, it's based off of the steampunk conveyor thing guitarjames posted in our group thread, but i don't know if it'll ever get finished, i have so little time to work on it. Anyway, here's a WIP. I stopped the once-a-week class where i was doing the portraits/oils so i may have more time to do my own paintings now, or it may get taken over by high school work :/.

    It really is amazing to see how much you've grown over the past few months. Keep it up Your sketches are amazing. I'd like to see a completely finished piece just to see how much value you throw in there though.

    I'm liking the guy jumping with the gun in your last one (upper left), he's looking pretty dynamic, just the foreshortening on the arm pushing backwards is bothering me.

    Nice to see an eviro! I'm not sure how you paint, but I tend to drop a neutral colour first so I don't have the white surface glaring at me - it also helps me to work out all the values and stuff.

    Right now I feel as if the vanishing point on that is higher up then the horizon, so maybe if you drop some guides it would help to pull things into place.

    Hi there!

    Fishy, you're doing really good with the practices! I really have no crits since these are mostly pracs, the last detailed face you worked on is very well done, good job! Keep them coming.
