    Ah, hi Blanquish!

    Really like those rendered pieces, those faces need some work though. Fear of noses? Hmm, they seem very woollen if you know what I mean. Not defined, as if you didn't want to =D. Well some nose studies would be my first request, theres a lot of variation out there to draw from! Keep up your progress.

    dile; thanks friend, yes thats why i changed@_@, silly name, what was i thinking..thanks for being the first to reply too =)

    aph; thanks for the imput, the charcoal was done quick and quite intuitively, not planned out in thumbs like I usually would.
    Also, with charcoal, its not exactly a tight medium, so you simplify and smudge. But thanks for the crits, its not just the noses that could use work.
    nice work from you too btw

    rodrigo; I feel the same way about you, you freak, next llwewllyn I tells ya
    In comparison to history though, i probably suck squares considering renaissace artists started getting taught as apprentices at like age 10, miking paint and doing study's and working on their teachers paintings.

    The gnoll; thanks Ryan, still a loong way ahead of me though
    Craig Houghton; haha thanks mate


    I dont like having an empty sketchbook, so here is more stuff

    hmm new name and new sb .. is this a new beginning?

    Actually you can achieve quite a bit of details with vine charcoal, use the soft ones for tone and the hard ones for details.

    Old noobie; aye, new beginning, pretty embarrassed about some of the stuff I said/drew back a year ago, fresh is nice!
    Lee yea, you can produce some pretty amazing stuff with charcoal. I was going for a certain soft look though, and i wasnt working big or with any references.. you get the idea

    ent; thanks vic, the rabbit head dood was for you!
    dile; my lifedrawings? all from my head i think
    ditto about the kast statement, your bots are looking rly cool!!


    ugh, i feel lazy only posting a few pics, and honestly I have been working way harder than this, dont like showing quicky doodles and studies though.
    I bought a book called "anatomy for the artist" by Sarah stimblet
    Its got some great albeit a tad "gay" references, lol.

    finished my second moleskine and have no monies, so I have been practicing lots of speedpaints
    this is just one of tons, no ref( it shows)
    might show some more later, but I filenamed them all "speedpaint crappy, speedy dodgy" etc, my hd is a mess

    thanks guys
    Alex

    WOOT! HUGE improvement Alex, HUGE!
    Pencil work is really shaping up, you're handling the forms well. Something you need to start doing though is giving a different value range to various objects. The highlights on something dark will still be darker as the shadows on something light - that sort of thing. It'll help you to separate objects in your composition and also describe form.

    wondering, is a self portrait? Really love the quick brushwork and repetition of shapes, nice and lively.

    Rated, and keep up the good stuff mate!
    ciao!
