    I think you're going to sand bag us Lee...
    I think you got some sick masterworks hangin out and
    just going through your old sketches and then WaBAM! hittin us in
    the head with the insane stuff. j/k. Great progress in such a short amount of time, looks like you're finding your footing.
    The rendered female head...is something else again..though if I had a bit of a crit it's that she looks a bit angular..the rendering could bring out the softness in her features. Great handling on the hair though...
    Keep it up man.
    Cheers!

    Helzon: thanks, yah, I have that problems of making angular faces even on female heads. I try to change but somehow at the end it still ends up like that. Working on the rendering too

    here is a little part from a previous doodle, noticed it today while skimming over my sketchbook to see if it will push some ideas into this thick skull of mine. Anyhow, it's an optical art illusion by accident is it an animal or is it part of a face?

    check his vid tut section...he does these with no custom brushes or the such..but his results are insane.
    I would also recommend if you are looking for some cool tuts 2dArtist magazine..or Imagine FX...great resources for PS and Painter.
    Hope this helps.
    The main thing im wondering is if you are dodging and burning the highlights and shadows on this head study rather than mixing in complimentary shadows.
    Great sketchy ninja though.
    Cheers!

    Helzon: thanks for the links and suggestions. As for the study, I didn't use the dodge or burn tools, I started to do what I did with the cheek but I messed up and it came out all muddy not to mention I messed up the eyes and brows too. Though I am in a way pleased with what little result I got, I didn't use any under drawing as a guide

    Those few figure drawings are what i'm talknig about my man!

    I would suggest drawing lose. Forget the tighteness for now. Learn line quality and energy! Pump that lead up!

    thanks for the reply in my book.
    I dont think age is important, as long as you enjoy yourself, and feel your achieving something, keep going, its never too late!

    Thanks Blanquish, this was always fun but I stopped for so long, I wasn't sure if I still have what little skills that I had.

    Your figure drawings are very good. Strong poses with great foreshortening. Plus some of your sketches are in pen! I don't know if I could pull that off!

    Your pen sketches are serious. I really like them. I can recognize fluidity (iz that a word???) in your lines that I don't see in your pencil sketches- those seem a tad on the stiff side.

    Do you use different hardness pencils? I find that when I use a harder lead (4H), I tend to be more relaxed with putting my lines down. Softer lead is sloppier for me so I try to conserve lines- which makes my work more rigid.

    Other than that- you are a drawing machine.

    dindon: I started using pen for sketching because its permanent so I don't have the urge to erase.Thus it has more spontaneity which I am trying to transfer to the pencils. I'm sure you can do it though at first you might try too hard to get the lines just right where it will cause stiffness or just plain frustration.

    LateNiteHype: I used to use a 2H pencil for making preliminary, but since I'm not as young as I used to be, my eyes aren't as good and those light lines are hard to see. Switching to using softer leads is giving me a headache, and like you, I try to conserve lines which is not working too well. and yes fluidity is a word

    the birdies rock lee! actually your animals i would say are a little better than your faces. it probably has something to do with knowing what you're drawing vs. seeing what you're drawing- if that made any sense. sorry, just rambling. good works- hope to see ya bust some more stuff out soon

    dogfood: thanks

    White Rose: I got some oil pastels and some acrylic paints, dunno when and if I will try to use them guess I'm just afraid of failing.

    Sith: I think the reason is that when drawing animals, I only have to be 80% accurate whereas drawing a portrait, nothing short of 99% accuracy will produce a likeness. One slight mis-placement of a feature cause the face to look different since it affects all the other features. Because of this, the sketch tend to look more rigid and lifeless. (think I said that right)
