    Those tonal figure drawings in pencil are my favourite ones.
    You analyse the form very well, I envy you ^^'

    Psychobuddy -

    thanks! Welcome to my sketchbook.

    Icecold -

    Thanks man. Obsession with form + time = results, eventually. I can tell you that the
    Life Models series of photo-CDs and books helped me enormously, nothing like being able
    to rotate the pose in 3D to be able to see what's going on.

    ---

    Ugh I feel really bad about these. Definitely rushed. I have the ideas worked out now so
    I think I will redo or onion-skin the designs and poses tomorrow.

    Woops

    BludHund: Thanks man. I will definitely work on more line control. Thanks for the tip. I will be switching up my flow to focus on that sort of stuff for sure.

    And I really need to not slump. I find I tend to lean forward and get in close. Every time I do and realize I move back so I have a better view. I am constantly in a Back and forward battle to stay back and see the whole image.

    Pete -

    Yeah, plus it can lead to skewed drawings and makes it very hard to get proportions right.

    The Tai Chi figure is looking better than your previous figures... it's holding together (unity) better... all the parts seem to relate to the whole, and the action is good. Really good. Keep working hard.

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    more time wasting...

    ...and that moment when you realize that your draftsmanship...is not as good as you think it is. Clearly I need to do more 3D design drawing.

    Maaaan whats up?
    Its really great seeing you keeping up and actually doing more stuff next to the studies. Although i feel there is something keeping you from unleashing a great power. Make a video so that i can see how you paint hahahaah.
    Make something on a loose approach. Make an image in your mind and like an impressionist try to quickly catch the impression and put it in photoshop then start building from it here and there adding details mostly in lighted parts.
    Mostly i wanna see yourself expressing more, because i want to see things all in one to figure out mistakes .
    This is nothing in relation to your critiques but i will try to help as much as i can
    Your studies are awesome as usual, keep it up and thanks again for the help you are offering to people in this community

    Heeeyyyyyyy.....

    Your comment gave me the willpower to update tonight!

    However its just this piece of crap I was doing really really terrible at life drawing tonight,
    I don't know what's wrong I just couldn't get my head on straight. I was going to upload my
    whole session, but...my scaner seems to have just died on me! This is very disappointing
    as I just bought it and it was very expensive.

    "i feel there is something keeping you from unleashing a great power"

    I feel the same thing! I wish I knew what is holding me back...I really need to get myself on track.

    "Make a video so that i can see how you paint " actually I was going to try doing that, what
    software do you recommend to record video of your process? I tried Camstudio but I worked very
    poorly...just ridiculously slow and choppy.

    Very nice with the char design man. That last one looks very solid. The folds look like they are in the right areas.

    These are just some warm-up scribbles...which I've been doing for a while now every day to
    experiment with different types of line and how they can be used for hair or folds or just for
    pure aesthetics.

    Blah blah blah. Crappy lighting photo'd because, as I said, my scanner is in a coma. However,
    that gap should be stopped by tomorrow...BOOYAH.

    Wow, I can not even TELL you guys how frustrating it is to mess around with scanner drivers for three
    hours...wasted my whole night. I seriously feel like I could chew on rocks right now, I am so pissed.

    So here is something from last weeks life drawing, lol. Hopefully tomorrow night will turn out better.

    Your studies are looking solid. Don't worry about the girl's face. She's looks like female enough, though there is a tomboyish to her, which isn't necessarily bad.

    The folds on her look pretty darn good, perhaps a little too many fold lines, but overall they work. The best way to get away with using so many lines for folds is to make them thin. Right now almost all the lines on her are of the same width. Varying the width adds greater dimension to the drawing.

    Overall, she looks good. Would be nice to see her in color.

    "i feel there is something keeping you from unleashing a great power"

    I feel the same thing! I wish I knew what is holding me back...I really need to get myself on track.
    In regards to what KingKostas said, I've always felt that way about your work.

    In regards to your reply, all I can offer is what has helped me since I've felt this way about my work too and is something I'm only starting to break out of now. For me, the main problem has been overanalysis, about my life and my work in general, but, in particular, it's been about the people in my life that have affected me in emotionally powerful ways, whether it be negative or positive. The negative ones became demons that haunted and distracted me from focusing on my work. The positive ones became fond fantasies of the past that also haunted and distracted me from my work. There's still a lot of emotional residue from the past that I'm working through at the moment but what I've found that works is to simply forgive all those that I felt have wronged me in some way or hurt my feelings. As for the fond memories, I just simply let go of the feeling that I have "lost" something and, instead, adopt the attitude that I'm happy that those experiences happened. Another important thing to do, perhaps the most, is to forgive yourself for all the "stupid" things you did to others or yourself. I have a history of beating myself up and being too critical of my work (amongst other things) and I sense that you do the same with yourself.

    Forgiveness (of self and others) and just letting the past go has freed me up emotionally so that my heart can be attuned to expressing itself RIGHT NOW. Dwelling on the past, whether they were positive or negative experiences, clogs up my creative spirit and drive and therefore I have trouble unleashing the creative potential within.

    Perhaps what I just wrote pertains to your situation at the moment, perhaps not. Either way, I hope it can help you in some way. Your feedback has certainly helped me and I want to return the favour in whatever way I can.

    Rock on man!

    I think your latest version looks like a tomboy yet feminine. I think the torso is a bit long or the legs on short side. (I might be looking at too many model from magazines) I think her leg that's extended out is a bit over done in the line work unless you want emphasis those muscles.

    Glad you got your scanner working. I had that problem too with old scanner I had for over 10 years, drivers issues. Then it just dawn on me to buy a new one. lol.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    As usual the studies and excecution is great. Hmm lets see, ok firstly keep up drawing [and share some more updates ], secondly if you want lets learn toghether through a piece. Prepare some sketch [use references for training] and lets play back and forth as a collab, send it to me and we will build it as much as we want. [the same piece ]
