Had to finish this portrait..
man!!!!Your sketches are kick ass....But i think you should start adding some more dark tones..it'll be interesting...
Rain - hey man - I really like the design of this one. Don't be afraid to let some of your mark making show too. Will send you some URLs of different kinds of mark making, Van Gogh, Daumier, Topolski and of course Rembrandt - it's interesting where they chose to mark and also the amount of marks versus shapes versus open space - will send them along.
I dont have allot of time so here is just a quick update .. i will post more when i get back.
I drew this drawings from mind and from life.. I think i will start to draw people when i travel by train .. i drew one today .. it was allot of fun ! its in my last drawing the "old man"
hello mate, you have good skills.These last pencils are really good and i think you must keep up working the anatomy.In overall you are doing great and there is progress, so just keep going
Hey - hate to disagree with you - but the new post is pretty sweet. Sometimes drawings that aggravate you just mean you are learning and growing - just keep at it - you're doing great!!
thanks for the note. nice sketchbook. is that siwash rock in stanley park in one of the early posts?
looks like you've been conscious of the need to push for darker tones. i have the same problem. my art teachers are like broken records. darker darker darker. while you're thinking about putting in the dark tones, also think about smoother transitions between tones and also adding other dark tones, not just black. seems like you're using 0-50 range (0=white 100=black) and then skipping 51-99 and just using black. high contrast is one of the most effective things in drawing the eye to the focal point. if you've got chunks of dark creating contrast all over the place, the eye is just runnin all over the place trying to find the sweet spot.
i see you've been working on faces. watch the proportion on the overall skull. some of them look really elongated with a bulbous cranium. the proportions you have on the body are really good. seems bang on to me.
