lennon Thanks for the kudos man, if you haven't try it yet, give it a shot at using oils, it is a very fun medium!
So here is a worthless update for today, I am trying to get back in shape since I have been slacking way too long this summer. I am attending these local life drawings session on wednesdays, so here is the result so far from those. Each one was in a 20 min time frame.
Lastly, some small sketches I did using the graffiti application in the Facebook (a social community site similar to MySpace.) For those not familiar with this application, it has very simple options, just a brush tool with opacity and size settings, with a web color palette. Basically that's it, very simple, and is vector based since it's basically an application made in Flash. Anyways, just wanted to share.
I will upload some more serious stuff in the following days.

Hi all, just been drawing from pictures these days just to keep the drawing routine going on.
The eye was draw using this reference pic
The dogs studies were done from pictures I took of a friend's dogs. I liked those Siberian huskies
P.D: I tweak around a little bit the levels in Photoshop since the scans were appearing way too light.

Nice sketchbook. Your paintings are very good. It's nice to see your new environmental drawings. It shows you have diversity in skill =)Everyone's creative acts, whatever they may be, make constructive form out of the apparent formlessness of our lives ~ Rollo May

Great varied sketchbook. I like for the dog drawings that you took your own reference photos instead of getting them from an outside source. And it shows in the drawings. They look pretty damn realistic and the value contrast is great. Try to apply that to all your drawing. State those main shadow masses strongly

Shobunkin Thanks man!
ArtznCraphs Thanks man for the suggestions. I took those pictures sometime ago but I just got to work from them recently. It really helps a lot knowing what you are drawing since you have a better undestanding. Thanks for stopping by!
An small drawing I did for a friend of mine based on a picture. Is kinda like a "photomanipulation" type of thing since based on the original picture I dressed them with the clothes of Zelda and Link, which was quite challenging but entertaining as well I have to change the girl's hand too since it was on another position. I have a hard time with the faces, since it was a last minute decision when I realize that they weren't looking that much like them and decide to spend the extra time to rework them. I don't think I got the guy's face right, and I did re do it a couple of times seems it seems smaller than the girl's face. Anyways, this reminds me I need to work more on portraiture. Any C&C about are welcome!

Lately just being learning the basics for drawing faces since before I never took the guideline approach for faces. Some of these are drawn from references while others are not, probably you can tell which
Also some small 3 point perspective since I never down that before, fun fun fun!

BEAUTIFUL dogs. Well done. I'll definately be checking in on this one.
Thanks for commenting in my thread.

Ex Nihilo Thanks man!
So i been learning the basics for drawing faces using guidelines. This time I was practicing with profile views.
Also, I did a portrait of a friend from a picture in order to get back in practice in Photoshop. I rarely paint directly with color, so this was a good exercise of that and I have to be honest, whenever I was lost I use the eyedropper tool just to see what color it was in the picture but I did not use straight colors from the original picture. This was enjoyable because the main intent of this was to make fun of my friend by creating a version with huge ears . I am not posting that version though, as Dave Naville says in his painting flesh DVD: "To protect the innocent, it's only fair".
Any C&C on the portrait is highly welcome. Time to practice, practice, practice!

El Pato!!! (means "Duck")
Just trying new styles and new programs for a change. This is the first work I have ever done using Painter 9, and now I see why people love this program. I used the main pastel brush just to keep everything simple. For the clouds, I just look outside my window for reference (weather is so nice ) and look at some ducks pictures just to understand ducks, that counting a rubber duck I bought some time ago. Also it was practice about painting with color, any C&C are welcome.

Hi Armaldon, thanks for stopping by my SB. You seem to have a good sence for value and colors. You made some really nice renderings in pencil and the paintings look very good too. I also like the dogs you drew! Maybe you could try to devellop a better linework: by varying line thickness you can convey a lot of depth information. Keep up the good work!

Bartovan Thanks man for stopping by and for the suggestion.
Now, just uploading some stuff I had been working recently. The first too are from an artwork I was doing for a contest in DA by fellow deviant artist, Reiq. It consisted in drawing his character Alex in anyway we want. I went for a realistic style, which make me spent like two weeks on this. I did some variations such as the smile and visor, but the smile didn't come that good. The face was a hell to do, since I did it like 6 times, and in each, it look like a different person, but it was fun since I learned how the face features can indicate a person's age etc. I included some of the many faces variations I had here. C&C are welcome on this.
I just couldn't get the Spider Pig scene from the Simpsons Movie, so I had to make a quick painting about it. Was good to practice some foreshortening and one point perspective. By the way, that movie is just so funny!!!
Now must get back to finish my CHOW piece....

Quick update, just wanted to post my CHOW piece. It is the first one I have done, and it feels very satisfying since it was for a good cause, a tribute to Glen Angus. Too bad, I won't be here for the voting, since there are some amazing pieces and everyone should check them out!
It was fun to work on this, and I will definitively fix it later. It is high res, and here I included some closeups and another variation. C&C are welcome.

You visited my sketchbook so I thought I would return the compliment!
It's great to see such a huge variety of styles here, you seem very passionate about art which is excellent. I love the paintings on canvas and all the pencil studies too.
The work you've done in Maya of the space ship hanger is really good. 3D work is something I would really love to learn in the future, keep up all the good work, you're doing really well so far. ^_^

Hey. Lot's of cool new art since my last visit. Still life paintings caught my attention at first page. Think more about where you want to lead the eye of the viewer. Some parts could have less contrast, saturation while others could work as focal points.
The last Chow piece has nice composition. Keep it up.
