Great stuff, for sure. You've got a nice style going on.
For crits: maybe mix it up a little? Do some more drawings of males, animals, or still lifes? Try out some different mediums? I've got the same problem - mostly drawing females with pencil. Alas, broadening your horizons will help you improve, and I'm sure whatever you churn out will look just lovely.
Keep it up, and goodluck!
great improvement over the year Barts, keep on keeping on
hey mate, nice to see a local
Ive noticed that a lot of youre figures are quite short, your last guy was bout 5-6 heads tall by my count. They should add up to 8 heads tall. ALso you need more tonal indifference, just because an area is light, doesnt mean it should be white, and youre dark areas black, and shades in between.
try some different mediums, felt tip pens and copic markers are great, and prismacolours add nice texture to them.
keep posting and vary your subject matter, do some anatomy studies, some still lifes, enviro thumbnails, gestures, observational drawings..whatever go nuts

hey thanks for the replies fellas
bumskee- yes i do agree about the definition in the "eyeal" area and yeah i did know it haha
blanquish - im sorry but i disagree with the height of my last figure by my count he is about 7 heads tall but he is slouching also, and yeas i do do lots more drawing and havent had time to scan or take pictures of them, but thanks for stopping by.
Hey Barts whats goin on? I like the thread You seem to be on your way, I love the last dump. Only thing I can say is keep that girl of yours around reference is key, whether its a picture or just a shitty still it well help you every step of the way.If there are open drawing classes near you go, there priceless. Well thats all I got to say, keep up the progress.
hey bart! nice solid work, it's very interesting to see you work with negative shapes too.. those hands and forearms look great. she's looks adorable btw. love this one..http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y67..._22/Emily3.jpg !!
I do think you should update more often though, MORE! keep drawing mate, hope Adelaide is treating you well! cheers, Min
Hey there, thanks for the replies.
Bumskee- Thanks mate, yeah i find blocking in negative shapes firstly conveys more of what i want to capture and yeah she is adorable, hehe thanks again mate.
Blanquish - Thanks for stopping by, the scan actually portrays those drawings rather more messy than what they actually are, they really took me a long time to do, maybe ill re scan them or something to show what they really look like, but thanks again
Here's a lil update, w.i.p of another emily picture, eyes without reference and an unfinished elf just experimenting with brushes.
This stuff is looking great, mate...lol, that rhymed.
There's definitely been an improvement from the beginning of your thread. Keep at it- and keep posting... I love your portraits!
I really like the recent sketch of the kid. Your ps refed stuff is coming along nicely as well. I was trying to think of what it is that's missing, and I think your eyes identified it. My suggestion with them was to go look at some hogarth eyes or any of android's sps to get a feel for the structure around the eye - lids etc. Looking at your refed and unrefed work it seems that your skipping the underlying stucture and just drawing the outside as a flat object. Think about, and draw, the underlying structure. Then when rendering it think about the 3d forms - put in contour lines if you have to.
Keep it updated!
really like the contrast on the first one in post #41
in your drawings with outlines maybe you could work with the line quality more? making it thicker where theres shadow and so on. I suck at that
My sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=78068
nice studies. they look a bit rushed though, maybe you could take more care with the planes, like the top plane of the lower lid is usually lit..it has a really nice effect if you can capture it...just small things that make a big difference sometimes. i like the latest sp though, has a cool washed out feel.
whoa its like the improvement came outta nowhere! I only came across this skethbook by mistake but i likes! anyhting that reallly shows improvemtn to me is awesome.
Oh and that last image made me a lil tear eyed. its like your drawing my sadness *flicks hair out of eyes* sometimes.... i jst wanna diiieee.......
jk. awesome work.
