wow! Looks great! I think this style works great for you as well. Have you tried inking your stuff? I see some cool line work there. Reminds me a bit of Heinrich Kley's lines.
Thanks Dizon do you mean inking the etching? I'm reading about different techniques and wouldn't mind trying it out. I had a look at Heinrich Kley I really like his work thanks for the inspiration
Been doing some random portrait sketches this week, some gestures today and ideas for the Gestapo Chow.
Hey Ang! Love the updates and the CHOW! She looks pretty damn fierce! Are the glasses staying off? I started on this weeks chow but didn't think I'd finish it because the bf was meant to arrive on thursday. But now, thanks to the ash (grrr!) I've got a lot of time to work on it...
Have you been to any of the life drawing sessions in broomhall yet? I'm in London now, but if I come up over a weekend i'll give you a buzz and we should go together!
Hiya Belinda Thanks, enjoyed this weeks got into rendering all the different fabrics, decided to keep the glasses off her, when I painted them on they didn't look good. Sorry to hear your plans are scuppered this weekend, where is he flying from? Interestingly someone pointed out to me though that for the first time in our lifetime there are no vapour trails in the sky.
Here's my final her name is Desdemona not sure why, she looks like one.

Cheers D...I see what you mean now, sorry got stuck in printing land. I've been itching to do some pen and ink drawings as well as cracking out the old watercolours hmmm I feel a traditional session coming on!
Hi zou Thanks I didn't notice the eyes, they are too big. I see quite alot wrong with it now, good learning curve.
Thanks Gogo I like her shoulder pads, was pleased with the panther as well.
Did some studies last week. A colour pencil sketch of some leaves I found outside work, the quay near work and a quick study tonight of a friend, the photo was really blurred but it helped me practice drawing from my imagination.

Wow, a caricature artist. A good one too! Your non-caricatures are lovely too
You're improving much since page one, especially the painting skill. Gotta be a good thread to watch, this one is. Keep it up!
Hey Angel I'm really appreciative that some one visit my skechbook
You have a good studies here keep it up!
I think it's good advice when you make a quick sketches from posesmaniac to changes your medium.
when i make my daily sketches from PM( its to much to upload here )
I make a 4 skeches in 4 series
4.4xbrush and ink
I think it's good to don't limit your self in one medium
cheers and keep it up
I hope you understand everything... my Engish sux
JustinBeckett Thanks, will do
Thanks Witcrack that's really nice of you to say. Like your sketchbook too, the scarecrow and frog on page one are really cool, nice work
Kojot Thanks very much for visiting too and the advice, I'm going to do some traditional stuff this weekend, I managed to sort out some space in the flat for me to sling some paint so we'll see what I can do.
In the meantime, this is a photoshop colour experiment on Stoph. My pens pressure sensitivity isn't working for some reason so it made colouring in a bit harder but it was a good challenge. Not sure the colourscheme is working though...

Hey Angela! Nice portrait About the color, the warm and vibrant background color is competing with the foreground image that is also warm and vibrant. I think you have to cool down the backgound to blue or something or alternatively, tune the saturation down. That' ll make the foreground image pops more.
About the pressure sensitivity in photoshop, annoying yeah? it happens to me too occasionally (i use version 10 or CS3 and a wacom bamboo fun small), updating photoshop don't solve the problem either. So, to solve that problem, i close photoshop, open my pen tablet properties, and start photoshop again, if it still not working, restart photoshop over and over again until the pressure is working again (usually around 2 to 5 times restarting).
Don't let the software keeping you from updating, keep up the good work
Gogo Hi! Yeah, the last one doesn't pop, I've taken witcracks advice and changed the background to blue. Thanks for your cents
elf Thanks for the support
zou Thanks I did the restarting photoshop thing and it's working now. Grr damn bugs
witcrack Thanks for the advice I changed the background. And thanks for the PS advice too maybe it's a wacom thing, I've got an intuos 4.
So here's stoph with a blue background and some chimps I drew off a BBC documentary.
Thanks Granny glad you like the new stuff. the daily thread is interesting, haven't done any the last couple of days though.
Update Here's the etchings cleaned up, just need to research silver plating...
