    EDIT: 3rd page, woo!

    Onto leg studies, and a character portrait that's been bugging me for weeks. Eventually simplified it and ended up with this.

    Thanks guys I'll get there some day

    Last of my leg studies and some martial arts randomness. I think I'm moving on to face studies next. I'm starting to like my little routine of study + imagination drawing, keeps me learning and motivated at the same time

    You have some very nice figure drawings, and I like the idea of the characters with their skins pealing off; it kind of reminds me a little of Raiders of the Lost Ark, that part freaked me out when I was little pld:.
    Good work man.

    Thanks Dabaers I wish I could call those muscle-flying-off-pics my own idea, but someone probably did it before me

    Face studies starting to get into gear:

    Well, I tried to do a decent face study, but for reasons I can't begin to fathom none of it was turning out right. Tried a decent little imagination study. Nope. Nothing is working, so I just drew a little piece of turd. So frustrated. May need a break...

    After a much needed break from drawing I'm back at my face practice, finding myself not much improved

    1st: At first I thought it was the eyes that were fucked, then I realised that pretty much everything I put on there was in the wrong place.
    2nd: Imagination practice after study
    3rd: Some general tomfoolery

    Soooooo COOL! I love the flesh peel motif! I wish I knew how to do muscle like you do!

    I really love the hatch-work on your faces, very nice.

    I also like how expressive the body is on the guy getting his head blown off.

    Thanks for stoppin by my sketchbook~ I'll be sure to keep a look out on yours.

    hardsoapscum: I'm glad there's defenite improvement hat can be seen by others. The front page spans august-march of 2006-2007, so I think I'm at a decent pace. Loooooong way to go yet though...

    cmoreland: Thanks, I think I'll do another flesh-peel pic down the road, everyone seems to dig 'em

    Zoroko: heh thanks, but I think my hatchwork is more messy and haphazzard than anything. I like the guy's expression too

    Zombie_dla: Thanks man. Stars? That's faaaar down the road

    Anyhoo, a quick loomis refresher and trying my hand at constructing a face:

    I came here after seeing you very tactfully put Joseartist in his place. Nice. Plus I've read some of your crits around the forums and you're always helpful, which is cool.

    From start to finish, you are constantly showing improvement here. Great muscle studies, really nice. The pieces with muscles/arms/heads blowing apart are pretty wicked too. Two of my favorites are the Loki bust and the raptor. Good stuff, nice shading. Great strides being made in your portrait work too, though you may not see it.

    Don't dog on yourself so much, you're much further along than you might think! Keep it up.

    BTW- Can anyone tell me if there is a way to add a link to your own threads at the bottom of all your posts, such as the "Welcome to Rhineland" link that you've got, without having to cut and paste every damn time? Haven't mastered navigating this site just yet, find myself getting lost often...thanks.

    Drawing the subject from imagination after doing a study is a really good habit! It's an excellent way to see what's been learned and to deepen the knowledge.
    I'd know... umm, because I've heard so many believable people say so!

    Though... I have to wonder, whether there is some procrastination when it comes to correcting stuff. Not all is worth correcting, but acting more often on the mistakes you have spotted would probably be good... even if the corrections make the drawing even worse!
    Drawing everything just the way you want it in one go is a rare rare thing, so the patience to actually correct stuff is a valuable skill.

    Definate improvement mate, maybe spend a little more care and time rendering, I know that feeling of rushing to move onto a certain area or finish but its worth taking your time and thinking about what you can do to improve things.

    Try drawing clothes and armour and weapons etc, its really interesting, challenging and fun, it also improves your artistic knowledge. Diversity is a good thing =) Hope to see more soon

    Your stuff is looking pretty good dude, only thing that bugs me right away is just how low the contrast is in all your work.

    Your portraits are lovely but--- more contrast! They would look so much more awesome with more darks.

    ped454 Thanks, glad some stuff shows creativity
    dkounios Woot, thanks, think I'm almost done faces. Learned a bit and had fun
    Piranha Clan Already replied in a PM, but thanks all the same. Glad to know my helpfulness is appreciated
    dmitri What would I ever do without you breathing down my neck seriously though you're right, and thanks for calling it. I am lazy, I don't deny it, hopefully I'll improve on that as well.
    aph Yeah, again with the lazy card I don't know why but unless I'm really motivated to do really good, I only just want to get it over with. I'll work on that. As for other subjects, ever since I started my muscle studies I realized I can keep with my sketchbook more if I had a theme to work with for a while. First muscles, then faces, then hands, then.... not sure. Either colour, poses or clothing.
    Sepulverture Right, I think I've grown too attatched to my HB. I've been using it for drawing and that's it. I'll try to work my 2B mech in there as well more.
    28chelseaslater Alright with the contrast already

    Hehe, thanks for the kick in the rear, guys. I did get a bit complacent eh? Well, I did another portrait (think I'm in love with the woman in the ref, love big hair ). I took my time with a rough outline, and corrected many things along the way that I knew was off untill I hit the ref bang on (dmitri) Then, I made sure I took my time with rendering (aph) mixing cross hatching and blending with a 4H. I also went over the pic a few times with an hb then my 2b to really get some contrast in there (Sepulverture & 28chelseaslater) Hope it shows improvement (only thing I don't like about it is the lack of overall tone, but my ref had large spots of white and I couldn't shade it lightly enough so I scrapped the idea)

    Also, as always, a bit of random imagination stuffs.
