    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:

    The Brush

    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.

    Here is a WIP for my next value study. There are issues I may still need to solve.

    Your stuff is pretty good, especially since you don't do life drawings.*
    One thing I'd recommend is looking up some facial proportions. The statue is good, but the mouth is too small.

    *I don't think I have enough experience to say this with any authority, but I think life drawing is pretty important if you want to get really good.

    Right at this moment it is just a hobby I am doing to pass time, as I am also studying Graphic design too and I think that it would be easier to break out of education and into business through a graphics career rather than try to prove myself with illustration. The best thing about illustration is the more you do it the better you get, and if I only do it for personal pleasure, I will enjoy it more. In the future I may get serious with it, but for now I am too chicken to do it.

    I am very new to painting in photoshop, hopefully my awareness will grow and these basic understandings will pull through (I already know basic proportions, I was just too worked up in the shading).

    Thanks for dropping by.

    BTW do you know why my attachment wont show on the thumbnail?

    Oh, if you want to practice your sight seeing method why don't you do some bargue studies...Works a heap for me in sketching and seeing shapes.
    I have some scanned copies if you want.

    Really, really helpful stuff!

    Hi Rist! Thanks for dropping by. I'm glad to see a fellow student of anatomy - while you're working your way feet up, I'm working my way hands down; both of us will reap the totality of consciousness one day. Keep it up

    About the attachment and thumbnail: thumbnail only shows up if you use Manage Attachment on first post of thread, with the thumbnail being the first of attachments.

    Hi Vaei! I do what you have mentioned many times. At one point it was working all the time, but now it seems to not like me. It's not that important really, I just want a flashy image like everyone else

    It wasnt supposed to be the apple, it was ment to be an example. But as the jackass I am, I didnt read the whole thread and went and rendered the apple anyway. It did teach me that I still need to further my value studies and extent the range at which the values extend to (darker darks and lighter lights).

    Correcto!

    Sometimes I found myself not even finishing some peices because you get what you can from these "studies". So it's important to be aware of what you are drawing.

    I apprenticed before a portrait artist but he never teach me about planes or why the shadow is even there. So I was just blindly copying values without understanding it. But now learning it gives me understanding of the whys and how to solve problems without refs.

    Drawing, painting, etc. is just the explaination of how light works.
    Find out more about this and you'll do just fine!

    Thankyou for the kind words.

    Now that I have a fresh eye I can see that working up close to the details destroyed the overall shape of the person. In the future I will try to keep myself from zooming in, only for the finishing touches! With such a small monitor this can be an issue (working the whole image unzoomed) but not too big of an issue.

    Here is the original:
