    Nice studies. Very good hands aswell. I can see the highlights in the hair, but if you look at some refs you'll see that hair has quite bright speculars, while in your case it are barely visible lines

    Master's sketches from over at CGTAlk's Head study deal. Just for practice. I'm working on the second one as a color study too and correcting the errors I made originally.

    Should have posted these as I went... Took a life drawing course over the past two months. =p It was an Atelier course for Beginner artists, but even though I've done figure classes before, it was a great refresher course for me. Once April hits, I plan on signing up for the Intermediate class.

    The photo quality sucks though. Sorry that they are so dark.

    And more....

    Week 3 work.

    Next time around I'll make sure to do this as I go along rather than all at once. >.>;

    This class we also looked at figures from Andrew Loomis's book Figure Drawing for all it's Worth and drew some of his figure work.

    Week 6 (cuz I was sick on week 5)

    And more...

    Damn I've got issues with legs getting scrunched up. So disproportioned from the main body.

    2 min, 5 min, 10 min, and 20 min

    Wish I could remember which one is which. Next time I'm remembering to jot that stuff down. O.o

    Last Class

    Last class our model never showed up, so the instructor decided to do critiques instead. With the time left over we did some masters studies.

    And thus concludes my figure drawing class. What I learned:

    *Don't use graphite pencils on news print. It sucks.
    *My figures get either Shrunken head syndrome or squished legs syndrome
    *Pelvis and leg areas need to be studied more. Trouble spots for me.
    *I obviously need more figure drawing practice.

    Lighting tester

    Lighting study. Same drawing, different lighting placement obviously. Was trying to practice how lighting effects mood and can change on focal point on an image.

    Bridgeman Figure Studys in Pen

    More figure work. This time these were from Bridgeman's figurative drawing book, plus trying to help make my lines more steady and secure when I make them. Good practice on helping me to slow down and really look at proportions and gauging things before I make a stroke on paper.

    Rise, ye dead thread!

    /casts necro spell to summon the dead

    Come forth dead thread, and serve as my lair of evil!

    Going to try and at least up date a few times a week. I'm horrible. I killed my own sketchbook and now I have to become a necromancer to revive it. :<

    Helmet was done yesterday, camera done today.

    I like the larger sizes for your still life "sketches" more here than the resized ones on dA. I really wouldn't call these finished studies sketches though, each one reflects a lot of personal time and attention. I love the subtle differences in textures that are reflected in each one. Technically these are all pretty spectacular, if I had to crit anything it would be the perspective on the wine bottle...the bottom of the bottle looks a little bit like it's not quite resting on the table. My favorite part though is the transition between the glass and the foil bottle topper, as an avid vino fan it's something I like about wine bottles.
    Also the label doesn't quite look like it's following the curvature of the bottle. My other favorite part is the texture on the cord that attaches to the camera, it's subtle but makes a big difference in the life of the picture. (Is that the camera you used to take pictures of flowers with in the conservatory?)
    I plan on faving this over at dA, but I thought I would do the crit over here.

    Two more. Last one is a bit sloppy for my tastes but my wrist is killing me right now and I can't really paint anymore without making the pain worse. It's totally uneven on the one side.

    Everyone keeps saying they look like they aren't resting on the surface, but I don't understand why that is. Maybe I'm just not seeing it. Is it due to the darker shadow directly underneath the object? Because the way I have the light set up there generally is a sharper shadow. And yeah, that's the same camera that I had with me that day.
