    spent the day working on my assignments for my digital painting class. i have to say that i am pritty pleased with my book cover assignment (half naked chick with the sword)...but there is still the possiblility that i will look at it agian later and think it sucks; what can i say, i am bi-polar when it comes to my art.

    Those studies are great. I like you comic reminds me of that trip to Vermuda that I made. you have a nice world in your head, and so the responsability to let it out spotless to the paper, so keep it up with those studies.

    Hey. Fantastic studies and I see that you profit from them very quickly. The progress is especially evident in those master painting copies. For learing color try doing some still life paintings.
    Cheers.

    good anatomy studies...good fantasy style work...and your paintings gradually coming along. So all good thus far..oh one thing, i think you could do with using Less lines on your Gestural figure studies. Keep up the good work!

    lennon-thanks, i have been cleaning up the work for my comic and it is really starting to come along.

    Farvus-thanks. I have taken two life painting classes and they have really helped, I am also signed up to take a third next semester and I am assuming I will be doing some still lifes

    UriL- thanks. I have done any figure work in a while and I really need to get back to it.

    Prophet-thanks, I am really loose with my gestures, I will keep that i mind and try to up line economy in the future.


    ok I went back and re-worked triptych and and I finally scanned in my re-worked pages for my comic. I have another page to do and I have to clean up a lot of the panels.

    i agree with mentler, watch out for some repeating proportional issues in some of your figures (head size in relation to arms) and you work should look much better instantly, keep up the hard work though! your digital paints are coming along nicely

    mentler-thank you, yeah my figures still need some work. I just ordered Hogarth's dynamic anatomy so i will be spending a good portion of my winter break studying/copying that.

    paperX-thanks. heads and head size in relation to the body has always seems to be a problem for me though I think I am making some progress, just got to keep plugging. thanks for the encouragment on the digital stuff.

    here are a few sketchbook pages. the is a mix of stuff that was copied from handouts from my anatomy class and from bridgman and stuff from my head (the crappy ones)

    you got some decent dynamic curves happening in those last figure studies. your paints have good color sense as well. you just gotta spend more time on them. if you dont know how something looks use a ref. or try and search deep in your mind. just take rendering slowly. good stuff and thanx for peekin in my book.

    ajvenema-thanks man, now that i am home for a month from school i plan on updating often.

    paperX-thanks. just got two new anatomy books and reading/studying/and copying drawings in them.


    OBX-thanks, I do need to spend more time on my studies and will deffinatly slow down in the future. the plan for my winter break is to draw draw draw, and draw some more.

    here are a couple sketchbook pages and some proportion and arm studies from joseph sheppard's anatomy book.

    Thanks so much for that comment. It really made my day .

    I briefly looked over a few pages of your sketchbook and it's pretty impressive how much anatomy you've studied so far. Personally I think you have all the knowledge you need. I think you have a bit of difficulty doing dynamic poses at weird angles.

    I looked at a looot of reference images in order to understand it a little better. A lot of stuff from Josh Middleton (google him) and a lot from Jeffrey Cruz (http://lastscionz.deviantart.com/)

    Another technique I suggest is to keep your pencil really light handed and draw soft lines very slowly.

    You seem like you could really draw anything...and the only thing keeping you back is difficult angles...the skill is there...now it's just practice

    You rock. lats

    ped454-Wow! thank you so much. Your comment made MY day. I do have an adequate understanding of anatomy, its just that there are some things that I dont know or am confused about when drawing from my mind that I want to understand better. thank you for the links, I love stuff with like you said dynamic angles, lots of energy and line art, and both are right up my ally. I try to keep my initial lines light however I think my problem is that I draw a line lightly and then I decide that I like it and immediatly start solidifying and darkening it. Then two minutes later I decide that I am an idiot, the line sucks and want to fix it but cant because the line is too dark.

    here are some more arm studies (I think I am starting to get the hang of this whole arm thing) and a page from my sketchbook.

    hi
    Great anatomy studies, keep them going and if you draw faces
    remember that eyes are the most important,because eyes are reflection of the SOUL
    take care

    I'm loving how much anatomy you're studying. great stuff!

    with the painting you just posted, I'd recommend getting all the parts blocked in to a certain extent before you focus on any one part. Keep your brush big to start, and get smaller as you go along.

    nethus-thanks. yeah i got kind of lost at the beginning and kept on woking on same couple of areas instead of working the whole thing.

    i have been drawing and painting, i have just been to lazy to scan stuff and post. here is my finnished CHOW. i am going to be doing character of the week for one of my senior projects this semester, so expect more of them. i will probably work on the hands and face a little more before my class on thursday. tomorrow i will post my drawings and crap.

    You can definately see improvement here, when it comes to anatomy.
    last figure drawings show that you can catch the proportions and dynamics of the model really well. last humans you drew from mind are getting better as well. first sketch of the last update and the one from dec 31st are sweet.
    concerning constructive criticism I can't help you too much cos your doing all the right stuff. just do a lot. try some more scenery.
    and maybe try doing your sketches a bit more cleanly. but I think thats already getting better since you ballpointstudies.
    last one seems to have a tiny head tho. compared to the width of his shoulders (even with armour) and the length of the body.
    keep on truckin'.

    monotony-thanks, one of my senoir project professors is having me draw from the model every class (especially gestures) I have also be trying to go to some drawing sessions outside of class and those have been helping a lot. your right about the scenery, right now i am just trying to really focus on the figures. now that i look at it your right that head is too small, thanks for the motivation.

    here is my chow entry, i am really happy about this one.

    Been a little while since I poked my head in here. Things are looking good... you're progressing with your imagination drawings and the studies are definitely helping you out there. Your studies are really strong... just keep all that info in the back of you mind when drawing from your imagination... you seem to leave out some of the anatomy structure in your imagination drawings that you have down pretty solid in your studies.
    The last CHOW looks really nice. The girls torso and face could use some tightening up but over all nice feel to the peace.
    Keep up all the hard work.
