Your paintings are getting better.
If it feels to you like your drawing is not progressing I would suggest approaching it with a completely different style or methodology.
Or just try a different medium for a while...
c'mon guys, lets have some hard truths, nitpickings and generally derogatory comments! Raise the flag of academic fascism high and release that pedantic carper inside! Let it all out, oh yeah! Oh yeah? Oh YEAH!
'nyways. anatomy studies, portrait copies from newspapers (all fail at capturing character) and hand studies. some open canvas stuff just for fun, can't forget about that part.
Hrad crits? tough one, but I say push yourself more in the areas you know you are weak in. Also not so easy to crit studies and you seem to point out your own mistakes (maybe attempt to fix them?)
anyways your stuff is purdy...so purdy!
haha dude, all these notes around your drawings are fucking hillarious
Love the anatomystudies. Your portraits, however,are lacking structure. maybe you should get into skull/face anatomy as well to get a better feeling for what's actually going on in these faces concerning planes and stuff
On the other hand it might "just" be a matter of rendering, sometimes your strokes are a bit too rough to show all the subtle changes of planes, making it really hard to get a nice three-dimensonal feel.
hahah, the manowar dude cracked me up man. The hooded guy under phat moves looks awesome. Great values.
Puss in boots is ownage.
So much fun to look at.
Flaskpost: Coming right up! I'm on academic vacation but that doesn't stop me from sneaking into life drawing every now and then : )
archipelago & Miles_: Thanks! Jup, that one is a quick self portrait. A favorite pastime of artists everywhere, harassing people in cafes
DanielC: Yes! I'll catch you on msn some time
Chagan: I just quickly eyeballed them in, gotta do more rigid perspective studies to get the improvisational thing smoother
So! I have a problem! I'm currently exiled in Tartu, away from my beautiful sort-of-calibrated 21'' CRT monitor and scanner (hence no pencils for a while). I've been working on this with a laptop with a seriously funky lcd monitor so it looks sort of different at different hours. A friend of mine just commented on the standing bloke, that the shadow is way too light resulting in a sort of a hazy feel. Looks okay here but with my current setup I cannot be sure. So! how do you guys see it?
Also, floating petals - way overkill and cheesy or sort of cute and dynamic?
The standing guy could be a bit darker, but overall the colors and sense of dept
look pretty dam fine, do post more

Incredible work dude, I especially love your pencil sketches, they're so dynamic and expresive. YOU ROCK DUDE!
I'll keep an eye on you to see more of your stuff.
Hey kinnas, i really dig your work, especially the amount of value you're able to get in your sketchbook. Let me ask you, i've tried that kind of stuff with just the sketchbooks i have lieing around but none of them seem to be able to hold graphite, what kind of paper is in your sketchbook?
you kick ass man! the anatomy-studies are awesome! gotta grab a book and do some of those too! the last piece is great - nice composition!
excellent stuff. I jut love ur style
