    hi earindil i like u'r frst color environment ! u'r getting better or maybe u'r not constant ! regarding the piece in #33 i like those black and whites u made earlier better , i guess that the huge silvery circle it's a symbol for the inhabitants of the castle ( or of the complex if it's not a castle) anyway that symbol doesn't fit in ! keep posting u'r best and not every single sketch u make, because there is no point in uploading new stuff if it's not at least as good as the last one anyway keep it up and have fun !

    There's a difference between a finished gallery, and a sketchbook. As long as the overall trend (graph) is upward, then little dips are fine. Since it's impossible to draw every day and not get better, the trend will be up!

    Steven> Thanks! Just gotta keep "pushing it".

    Sceptyr> Anatomy and life drawing? Yep! Moar studies!

    More coming.

    Busstop, bus ride sketches. I like using the pen because it forces me to really think about my lines. Gotta keep simplifying. I realized after the fact that the dude's ear was way too far back on his head.

    My ability to see spatial relationships and proportions blows. I'll keep sketching and try to pay attention to this.

    More bus ride sketches. I always thought I had a good attitude but there were times when if I wasn't satisfied within 10 strokes, I'd want to stop the whole thing. That's a no-no! Ego...begone!

    We've also been having some really beautiful winter sunsets, and while I was at the park I tried to memorize the colors I was seeing so I could go home and paint them. I also tried Painter again for these.

    Another winter sunset color study. I was trying to be very gestural with the tree silhouette, as I've noticed each kind of tree while fractal in nature, has a different "gesture" to it's fractal...equation. Not sure if that makes sense. I'm going to try and capture these "tree gestures".

    And my first Bridgeman study. I've been avoiding Bridgeman partly in fear of my shortcomings (dealt with), and partly because I didn't like the chunky-ness of his figures. Then I realized that it's more of a way of conceptualizing the figure in order to draw it, and not how the final product should necessarily look. That being said, I'm going to draw over and over again until it's closer. Still losing a lot due to inability to relate parts to a whole/spatial relationships. Always ends up looking "wobbly".

    More Bridgeman. Copying lines fine, but making sure they relate to the overall form is a much bigger challenge. It's interesting how a few lines can denote a plane, or a fold, or a volume.

    Dump! Annnd my current project is on the bottom. I'm currently figuring out what's wrong with the light/shadow system. I've decided to stick with what I enjoy most in order to learn. No figure stuff for a while.

    Some photo studies, value, color, the usual.

    I think I've got cools in areas that should be warm, and vis-a-versa. Among other things. Hmmmm...

    Here's the latest on the landscape and some recent color studies. Anyone know of a way to use posemaniacs and CS2 at the same time? I'm having trouble getting everything to fit onscreen.

    You definitely have gotten a lot better over this past year. You're strength lies in environments, that's for sure. You don't seem to be having this problem as much with your other paintings, but on your lighthouse, the picture is suffering from too much detail. I must say, however, I'm impressed with what you do.
    Like others have said, Life Drawing is your friend. Try to do some other studies, too. Check out some anatomy books. It's something I definitely have to work on. I wish you all the best.

    Relationship strife, resolution, and a move to Seattle later, the sky is no longer falling.

    Quick fun for the the 4th.

    Another attempt at evocative skies.

    The current state. I'm going to look up water reference and make sure that beach has waves. I keep coming back to the countryside, wondering what to put there. I'm thinking farmlands. I'm trying to make it look like the landscape slopes up slightly, otherwise it looks weird to have the ground dip and the slope up above the water level, then back down again.
    Attachment 470665

    My next goal is to not use 38 layers to get this far.

    And some character gestures.
    Attachment 470704
    Just trying to think of various poses, situations, archetypes, etc. This is in preparation for the Seattle sketchgroup Final Fantasy-esque female character thunderdome!

    Feedback is welcome. I've gotta get better. Moar!
