    MrBobMarley sketches...................portraits...4-20

    So I lost all the pics from my old sb thread. Thought I'd try a fresh book. I was thinking about the sirens from the greek stories and mermaids today. Don't know what it'll look like tomorrow, just kinda going with it so far

    Thanks dCepT, I hope to finish it soon.

    Working on a bunch of new sketches and work, planning to dump them at once. But for the sake of something to look at, here's some of the not too embarassing stuff from my last sb. Putting these in here will also remind me of my faults and why I need to keep trying.

    Thanks for looking fellas. Those aren't pastels, they're prismacolor pencils, my favorite medium. The bottom 3 in my last post are prisma pencils, the last two drawn on black matboard. I want to get in the habit of posting an image everytime I post, nobody wants to just see text. Couple old ones.

    A lot of people aren't used to it, kind of like me and painting

    Some new sketches. Trying to wean myself of the hairy line work that's plagued me forever. Also, skimmed the best of CA forum for a while today. Made me realize all I draw is oversized, musclebound characters(look below) when not working from reference. I hope to remove that block over the course of this book.

    heh, the coloured stuff and all the women are beautiful dude, lookin great on that front. you seem to be in mucyh the same rut as me when it comes to drawin blokes. they look good, but bulky. ive kinda been recently drawin just standing poses and simple gestures using the clothes as a focus for the form, rather than the anatomy of the figure itself. that seems to be workin for me, in that i tend now not to draw such heavily muscled characters. just my take tho. all in all lookin good.

    I applaud you for stepping outside your comfort zone so publicly, its a difficult thing to do, but if you keep to your word, stepping out of your comfort zone will pay bi dividends later on down the track.

    btw, thanks for the comment in my sb, much appreciated.

    wow, looking really good here, mr.Bob Marley! Such good understanding of colors and values!!!
    i can see that you love ladies, and they are all looking really good,
    but personaly i think you should focus even MORE on male studies, since they arent really on the same level.

    This is my thing for the COW, a leviathan. I'm way too tired to write the story for it now, but here's where it's at now.

    your portraiture is quite nice and strikes me as excelling your figures. Really nice overall. I recommend more color work. Good.

    Decided on Chun li instead. Tried not to go too big on the eyes. She's got a kind of "who me?!" kinda look

    My post was just randomness...

    Nice Chun Li...what about a...uh...I dunno, Cristie from Tekken? or perhaps an even more sexified Milla Jovovich (is that even possible?)

    hey man, returning the favour for commenting in my book and glad you did otherwise i wouldnt of discovered this gem of a sketchbook. Your women are way hotter than your men but maybe im biased. That Chun Li stands out.

    great girly pics
    I like your sketch style (the one in the chun-li pic)
    If you want to get rid of all the muscle packed guys in your drawing
    try to draw extreme thin or fat people, it helps trust me

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting guys I'll visit your sb's soon if I haven't already. And I'm 4 years from 2 bakers' dozens old.

    Here's some new ones. From the mind, except for the last one and the hair on the little face where there should be a eyeball on the big face.

    Love the last batch! The women are good. Maybe vary the style of eyebrows?

    Hey, nice updates! Your chicks are rockin'! I always make females look to masculine, which ultimately makes me question my sexuality *sigh*, but yours are dope. Huge fan of the Chun-Li. Small crit, she's swayin' a little. That cow is pretty tight too! You should make a small island that he's standing on, cause the waters a little shallow there . Thanks for the crit-swap bra'!

    Saikin, yea I noticed that eyebrow thing afterwards. Thanks!
    Spray, thanks for the crits! Too burnt out on that cow hehe.



    Not made much time for art this week, but did mess around a little with this sketch from my second post but still unfinished. It's really odd how much little changes can affect the features on a face.

    Colors and light w/o reference is my weakest area besides anatomy knowledge. The newest incarnation of the blue chick is on the far right.
