Good stuff mate, keep up the god work, more more more
really nice form studies, I can see that like myself you are really interested in how the change in value can just change the way you look at something entirely. I'm doing a lot on that myself at the moment, so its interesting to see what you're up to. I definitely recommend doing a cast study or two
whoaa. nice studies! keep it up, more!!
you inspire me!

thank you so much for the replies
still figuring out how to render soft surface stuff
Marian Rowling: thanks for the tip I'll keep that in mind when I proceed further rendering my pieces, these just count as value block-ins though
Aryeh: Oh yeah those videos are off the hook I've studied them before, but one can never get enough of such good material
Jephyr X: I'm glad you find this helpful
Aryeh: haha you mean it? I'm no master to make a tutorial or anything but I can try to explain all I've learned. However, it might be better for you to study the resources that I used which are: Scott Robertson's DVD's, Glenn Vilppu's DVD's and some other books that I cannot remember right now.
Kungfoowiz: thanks for the constant support
rokushoxxx: haha it's not impossible...it's just a kick in the balls..but as everything it just takes practice
WAt reference or books did you learn the procedure for your perspective light/value sketching? its incredible how realistic you make your anatomy appear with that structure id like to learn that procedure you use as well, almost seems like your practicing for something insane, feel something epic coming . . . .
AdrianNagorski: I've already mentioned it. I'm going through Scott Robertson's DVD's Glenn Vilppu DVD's and some material from Ron Lemen and Marshall Vandruff...and as for practicing for something insane..well..hehe as my bio suggest for now I just want to earn a living :/
more quick stuff
Vertical: Thanks for dropping by
why dont you try defining shapes with highlights, rather relying on the lines. To me it seems like all your practicing light and shadow on basic shapes is great, but falls flat on on more complex pieces...
so make the complex easy!
silhouette the fucker like there is only light from behind, then add front light to define whats within the shadow.
Start with background - usually this is also seen as backlighting, ambient light, its very dark but you can still see some shape and forms within it (they usually are always gradients, unless indoors)
then slap one tone in for silhouette
then add more light front /side, as many as you want.
You can also work in pitch-blackness, meaning you see nothing coz theres no light at all. In that you could place one light source in front.. it would look like this
And just note some factors on ur last objects study, round shapes never get sharp shadow like the ones you did. Only sharp objects get sharp shadows. Round objects get round shadow..

I like your studies man. This one is way cool..
Cold has a good point. But what if you want to draw comics and need to rely on lines? It's hard to draw a silhouette then, or use much shading. But Cold's idea is a good one, too. Maybe until you can grasp 3D forms with your mind
Thanks for your nice post in my sb haha, I think you're right though! it's true. I've learned a lot about myself these past 3 months. Things I never thought would be about me, and all of it is coming from within. I'm on a path of getting better and I'm starting to listen to my inner child a lot and get professional help. I'll be alright.
can I ask what happened to you? it's ok if you don't want to talk about it otherwise, send me a pm!
btw, lots of nice studies here! I wanna see some more colour!
Inspiring to see all the study your doing! Thanks for sharing your work!
Andress !!! Loving your studies more and more.
And great input from COLD, but i must ask... why the darker tone near the cavity/edge of the box in the shadow side. Wont that area(just above the contact shadow) be having the maximum amount of bounce light ??? The dark tone there doesn't seem to make sense/fit in !
Anyway... keep painting dude... inspiring stuff
