    Your start is looking good. This is by far the best piece you have posted here. You are on the right track, keep going!

    Bard: yes it is from Rivens DVD's, I completed the whole set which was 175 or so clips. I have only shown the images that are worth seeing, a lot of scribbling was involved Thanks for the encouragement, and please, drop by again! Oh I also went to your sketchbook, phenomenal work!

    Faust: Thanks. Looking at that piece now it seems I used pure blacks in there, really should watch my tones in the future! I did this piese quite some time ago, I may try drawing this sculpture again to see how far I have gotten.

    0shade0: Thanks for the encouragement!

    Hello, haha I recognized those Rivenphoenix pieces, because I did a few of those myself. I only have 20 dls so far, that just was too many...
    But I find it valuable, too...

    About your question about hatching...If you knew about Ryders book then it's definitely worth trying out.
    A friend of mine introduced it to me this week and all my questions about drawing is finally answered. He said try to think slinkies and your hand is a sewing machine..hehe..
    I mean that book is so good that I'm all spent trying to find one today to different stores so I can have my own copy..aghh..out of stock

    But seriously try that book out...you only learn by doing...
    Like cooking for instance, you can read a recipe of carbonara all day for years, but you wont really trully know it until you do it.

    But what was the last piece? Color practice?

    Bard: Anthony Ryder? Do you mean 'The Artist's Complete Guide to Figure Drawing'? I bought this book about 5 months ago, only read a bit of it though. As I do not do life drawing I found it made me feel guilty for not taking up life studies.

    When I first started college I tried scross-hatch, but found it messy back then. Maybe now that I have more control over the pencil I could test that method again.

    As for those DVD's, if you are wishing to master the anatomy from those DVD's you are to be watching them for a very long time. What i did was rush through, only watching those whole series once. Once finished I had a general understanding, but I still didn't understand where all parts were. So if I want to take in all that those DVD's offer, it will have to be done slowly, step by step.

    As for the last image, it was made for The Character-A-Fortnight Event : CAFÉ 002

    However the last update drained my motivation for it and this is the last update:

    Thanks for dropping by. I will be doing a master study next I think.

    I thought I would post an early WIP to show you how I start a Master Study Monochrome. This one will be just a VALUE study.

    Okay I have had enough with this study. I did this purely from a colour study, so the values were hard to pinpoint. Then I desaturated the colour copy and was disapointed in how far I was from the original values, it does show me I need help with values. I will next time work from a grayscale image instead.
