    i think that your painting in particular shows heaps of talent, your choice of where shadow lies and where light sits is spot on. cant wait to get back to uni next year and do as much life drawing as you seem to be doing. Thanks for your sb it was realy nice looking through.

    DeMoon-- Thanks DeMoon! I'm trying to study the anatomy as much as I can.

    Gleeson-- Thanks for looking through my book! Yeah, lifedrawing seams to help alot, I highly recommend it. If you dont have a live model you can always draw from a mirror.

    Very cool stuff! I like your life drawings, and I admir your great control of different media as you shown in this thread, in particular I love your pencils.
    Only one critic, if I can permit this hazard, is in your characters without references. Infact like this http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1163546588
    the figures seems rigid and without energy, instead the energy that you put in your life drawings.
    Keep more of this quality works
    Ciao

    Your a superb artist I love the flow you produce in ur peices. Would love too see more reflections in the eyes, or is the darkness done on purpose ? Either way theyre great.

    kuroart-- Thanks, I will.

    Aphex™-- Thanks, I am usually a little hesitant to play around with the eyes too much I think I'm afraid of messing it up. But you're right I should add little more reflections and definition to the eyes. Maybe I should sit closer to the model to get a clearer look at the eyes. Thanks!

    Wow such elegant life studies I really like how you can capture simple form and subtle changes in tonal value... mmm... you use chalk pastel, right? I always find I get that stuff all over my hands and get nasty fingerprints all over my arts.

    So... let's see sommore of your concepts eh?

    As the pattern gets more intricate and subtle being swept along is no longer enough.

    Dreamworker:: Thanks man.

    designboot:: Thanks, will do.

    bunny:: I used to use pastel, everything after November 3 is charcoal on smooth newsprint. I usually don't have a problem keeping fingerprints off my arts, keeping it off my face is another story. I def. need more concepts though, good point, thanks!

    hoooly! damn! lovely stuff man. Im definitely bookmarking this. Where are you studying man? I know you said you were using charcoal, but what kind? http://www.dickblick.com/categories/charcoal/ I like the look of the charcoal better then my figure drawings in pencil seen in my sketchbook.

    rblitz7:: Thanks. I'm over here at Watts Atelier. I am using Conte charcoal 1710 B (the black ones with a gold stripe on top) sharped to a long taper on smooth newsprint.
    Jens:: Thanks Jens, hopefully things will get crazier.

    Love your sketchbook, you have quite a way with figures! Love everything, although some more variety wouldn't hurt. Sorry, no useful crits, just keep posting.

    Very nice rendering and technique. A lot of improvement since the beginning too. The structure isn't quite as consistent, keep trying to push that with your line drawings. If you can nail that 3d volume in your line drawings, it'll be that extra little bit to turn good drawings into great ones. Overall, really nice looking SB.

    Fishspawn:: My school break is coming up in a week and hopefully I can get some more variety in this sketch book. Thanks!
    AvatarJimmy:: Thanks for the advice, sometimes I think I am alittle quick to jump into value and skip nailing down the proportions, which is something I need to do. Thanks!
    Zord:: Thanks, cheers.
    Mr.Lyon:: thanks!
