    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!

    I realised the last few posts werent exactly delicious, anyway, I bought a new moleskine(#3), which has been sweet.
    been really enjoying ink with nib and brush, great medium!
    Ill see if I can dig up some other sketches ,
    ( last ones a master study, does anyone recognise the artist?

    the last two updates are lots better espescially the figure with the wolf head and the reclining female figure. The last one, the skull thing, was that done on bristol?

    Dude! your recent work is totaly ace. your imagination is totaly running away, its awesome to see. i think you should have a go at utilising a bigger negative/white space to realy set those pencil sketchings off. Speed paint = totaly rad. I like those subway style sketch's of charactors done in indian ink

    If i was to crit anything it would be a few manerisms i noticed that you tend to fall into:

    Somtimes your still making some of your charcters lean and fall over a bit. a quick skeletal sketch will stop this, establishing the whole figure quickly, however crude, helps (this is just what i find)

    also i notce you leave out the shadow of the bridge of the nose alot. noses are facinating things to draw, a little change to the bumps and shadows and the whole face can change, you should explore the nose as a shape, i find its one the most interesting things to render.

    your getting seriusly skilled dude. like wolfbane said: more!

    the well-dressed bunny can really mess with your head if you stare at it long enough. and, what's with the stain on his shirt?

    generally speaking, I continue to enjoy the mixed forms. the fly over the hooved animal bodice has some great textures.

    the four fellows at the bottom of march 13th are interesting. the first three could be the same guy at different stages of his life. older, middle younger. the last one is clearly his batshit crazy brother.

    the hole in the belly man-child is a freakish masterpiece of knowing what to render and what not to render

    I too have a hand growing out of my forehead, but i'm not so garish that I'd go around showing it off

    I can't help but wonder what else was on the paper fishman was cut from. did he have siblings?

    I'm not sure what is attached to the rest of that skull, but I think it's malignant

    oh and, van dyke?

    I'm loving the additional attention to textures, continued emphasis on merged man-beasts, and the general refusal to let your sketchwork get boring. I am, however, looking forward to more finished stuff (especially if you keep the same spirit as the sketchwork).

    -Craig

    Lee, yup Bristol again, love the stuff
    marco;p danke
    Tensai, thankyou!, Kep up the good work in your book too.
    Derlaine, thanks for the wonderful comment!
    Wolfbane. Thanks Kjartan, @_@ jealousy vibes? hehe back at you
    Gleeson; thanks for the top comment and imput
    Im not too sure what you mean by" bigger negative/white space", could you reiterate what you mean?
    Thankyou!
    Craig Houghton
    thanks a lot!
    1stly the stain is just an accidental watercolour drop, nothing intentional though..a "happy accident" if you like.
    hah, enjoying how you label each sketch.. it was funny( ironic really), i was thinking how we tend to label a piece of art using really generic names like"happy forest, or greamy village" etc.
    hmm, on the last question, its not Van Dyke, however its a damn fine guess.
    You get one more chance or you fail my class!
    thanks for the amusing and helpful post
    oh, and I love your belly button animation!
    Callops; =) you are far too kind!

    well, been a slow week..
    finished a painting(acrylics), spent about 8+ hours on it, and i dont feel inclined to show it though.
    havent drawn as much as per usual #cough battlefield 2142
    speaking of which, if you play bf 2142, add me to ur buddies list
    my name is DrWang (lol)
    been working on the teen challange too

    (sorry for the turds in there)
