    Havent replied in ages

    JoeEffect Thanks joe!

    [void] Thanks for that void, I think I might grab a few traditional pencils, these mechanical ones are pretty naff when it comes to using the side. Sometimes its good to fill large areas quickly.

    escape2mars Hey man, nice to see you pop in. The crab creature was just a random sketch so there was no real thought into it. It was sort of a rendering test in my moleskine, however looking ar crabs joints is a great idea for the whole visual memory thing whether doodle or not. I went to the natural history museum a few days ago and in one section there was the muscle mechanism of a crab. It was so bizarre as everything its almost inverted.

    DARAF Cheers Daraf!

    Grim Reaper Thanks Grim. I really should do some hand studies as I really neglect them alot, same as feet. Thanks for your input I appreciate it.

    kawakaze Dude thats definatley something Im gonna have to improve at, whats design if the character is all stiff and boring. I need more emotion in my pieces. Cheers!

    Envisor Thanks for the link, I shall check it out.

    styler Hehe yeh he needs extra big doors for them.

    Moai Yeh your right its something ive had trouble visualizing latley.

    mentler Thanks for popping into my book. Unfortunatley I think the rendering thread has died already. I think I might post some sketches to incourage people.

    Pistol Thanks Pistol

    style cheers for popping in!

    Poison_art Ello me duck.
    Ive been trying to do some more finished pieces latley, Illustrators illustrate and thats what I need to do more of hehe. Cheers!

    Booty+Beast
    Updated Beast pictures, I cropped the main piece as belle was hard to reckognise, she could either be a chair or a sumo wrestler hehe. I darkened some parts and gave the chair some padding. I still need to add a few extra shadows but this is pretty much finished.

    Dude!! Big leap of progress with your values man! Make sure you don't neglect your perspective, even in character-focused drawings like that one. The carpet gets out of perspective as it gets closer to the wall. Awesome updates man, keep it up!

    Hey man, good to see the hard work up in here. With the first one, it's usually better to crop a figure at the the thighs than at the shins/ankles. Cropping just the feet makes it feel like they're footless and hobbled and usually says that the artist just didn't want to draw the feet. The second one has some very cool detail to it. The chair is very well rendered. Maybe try and work out the hand on the right a bit more.
    They both kinda lack large areas of dark, working up from pure white with pencil can be exhausting and time consuming. You can try and put down midtone ground of graphite before you begin, then just push the darks and pull out the lights with and eraser.
    Very cool concept, anyway. Lotta hard work that's payin off. Keep blingin!

    I am really liking your imagination in some of those sketches. It really impresses me to see such ease of creativity. You'll do well as a character designer, if that is what your goal is. I think your "doodles" have progressed which is always a pleasure to see.

    In my very humble opinion, I do notice a lack of attention shading. In those sketches of the spheres, you seem to be lazy, when it comes to smoothing out the gradation of the shading (which ultimately shows through in your sketches).

    What i like to do, is set the opacity of the brush way down to about 20%, and work in passes. Once you have gotten to where you currently are with those, then you have a pallette inside of your subject to pull from. Just use those tones to work it work it and work it some more, to blend it to perfection. Really pay attention to the form and how the light reflects off of it. When you go back to pencil drawing, or whatever medium you prefer, make sure you preserve the lights and focus on the source of light. It will give your drawing a greater sense of depth and realism.
    When drawing with a pencil, i like to turn it on its side to wash in some tone. It appears as though you like to line in your shading with the tip of your pencil, which is fine, but be sure to keep those lines as even and clean as you can.

    I hope this helps, and feel free to contradict anything i have said. I am not a master nor am i even close, in fact im quite the novice, and could use a few pointers myself.

    Good luck, and good drawing! Keep it up!

    -edit BTW I agree with Andy P

    Blimey, its been a while since I have updated. This uni and college lark hasnt helped I must say.

    Been trying to sneak into alot of life drawing classes and learning more about the figure, loosen up etc.

    Sorry for the sloppy scanning.

    UPDATE YOU BIG FRAZZLE.
    Other than that, i think you should leave the lines alone for a bit. They are looking very confident, if occasionally laboured. In life drawing get some charcoal and work big, shade and get that form down, line is lovely for establishing silhuette but shading will really help you too see and break down the values.
    If you really want to do lines, get a pen, it will force you too really look at the angles, justify them with the negative angles. Good luck Richibo.
