    Very good use of values, shadows and lights. A wonderful display of anatomical skills, although I feel the queen/princess has a face that is not the same quality as the rest of your work. I love the cloth. More plz.
    No pain, no gain.

    Jebus christ. Your drawing technique isn't just good, it's interesting as well. Mind telling me what medium you used on that last sketch, or is it just photoshop?

    miguelslo: Thanks!

    aprat: Its this pastel-type stuff called "Yarka Sauce" They sell it in these wood boxes, with 10 assorted values in nuetral earthy tones. They're very soft and buttery. All are done on cheap newsprint, building the vaules from dark to light overtop of eachother. here are 3 more done in the same way...

    You have pretty good technique, so that gets my approval.

    But. You. Need. To. Stop. Drawing. Naked. People.

    (and yes I plan to complain about this in every single thread on Concept Art)

    beautiful figures dude. well, not all of them are necessarily beautiful, in the case of the severly overweight lady near one of your first posts but they're beautifully rendered. keep it up.

    Banshax: Yeah just using the side of a pastel stick is a good way of getting some quick value into a gesture drawing.

    here are the results form last nights weekly life drawing.

    Great stuff. I love your monster designs in the first image and in post 15. You have an excellent control over value with your figures, sometimes harsh and sometimes delicate. I can't crit you, so just keep drawing! I look forward to more.

    Great work - especially your rendering skills. Sometimes proportions are a bit off, mainly in the more complicated poses. But still amazing work.

    Hey Faxtar, I was just browsing through here when I realized, "hey I know this guy!". This is James, we had Linda Warner's Portrait class together and I occasionally hit up Life Force meetings. Your work is looking good man, keep it up.
