    One photo and one from life. My laptop and my new monitor (30" ) are way off in color, I am gonna snag a Spyder soon to make sure it's all the same.

    BTW- most of my photo studies are from suicide girls, I thought I would give them a shout since they made the nice photos I study from.

    Sketched around a bit on this old drawing I did. I may paint on the bg some more, or I may leave it more abstract. This one was all about practicing turning forms.

    I did the "lens flare" with the airbrush, smudge tool, and overlay and dodge layers. No cliche PS filters involved! Don't just look...... Leave a post!

    Very impressive work, Sir! It's come a long ways since you started. I'm such a novice myself that I'd only be a fool trying to give you criticism. Overall, it looks very strong. A lot of your sci-fi stuff suggests that you're really finding your style. I think it comes off well. If I had to give a tip, I would say keep working with reference when you can (as you have been).

    Good luck, I know I'll be watching this one in the future!

    After reviewing some of my past figure studies, I decided to hell with the time limit, I need a higher level of finish. This one was about 2.5 - 3 hours from SG photo ref.

    I did color pick a few times, but I choose the color I think first, then see how far off I am. After 3 hours of this you start getting pretty damn good. No tracing, overlaying, etc was used, I just flipped allot and tried to nail the drawing.

    WHY NOT! Maybe you could switch from time to time. Wíth time limit (<1 hour), than studies of at least 3 hours?

    Vigilandus Great quote, thankyou! I spoke with Jason Manley at Revelations, and he encouraged me to come home every day from my shitty graphic design job, and put pencil to paper. I have almost 3 sketchbooks since then I need to scan and post.

    In the mean time, two color studies from yesterday - The boat didn't get saved:

    Some of the better renderings are ones where you feel more confident. If the brushwork feels very guessed and messy it doesnt pack a nice initial impression - I would say the 1st and 3rd image in http://conceptart.org/forums/showpos...0&postcount=74 triggered that observation. Think where the forms are going, and use your brush strokes to support that - it will feel more naturally captured. I shall return again

    Did you paint all the tatoos in post #67?? fantastic

    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Here is yesterdays life drawing session done in Painter X. One of the better ones from life I have done yet, I think. Pencil and watercolor were done in the first half hour, then she put her robe over the chair.
