Haven't quite been in the drawing / painting mood lately, but I have been playing around in sketchup:
these 3d models are looking really sweet mate.Great work
You could use it and make a paintover in photoshop or something
keep up the good work
kingkostas: Thanks mate! Yeah I'm going to work on this a little more (have some variants in mind). Then I'll definaitely be trying out some paintovers!!
Here's some stuff from today, namely Kevin Chen sudies, some heads (not great but I suppose they must have dne some good), some reffed poese and non reffed poses (playing with props and body types).
Edit: Just realised I've fallen back into that old habit of elongated torsoes...
You've really improved with the figure drawing, I saw all the practice you did and I can say it really helped! And sorry to ask, but where are you finding all of these poses? I don't think their posemaniac, because they have skin, and was just wondering if you could tell me, since you've inspired me to try it

Hero: Thanks!! Try photodom.com, that site has a pretty good nude section, and it also caters for all kinds of photography so it is great for eference. That being said it has just undergone an upgrade and the new version is in a sort of public beta stage so isnt quite up to full speed yet.
Here's some studies from today:
I really like the way you construct your figures!
Head and values from the other page are looking great too.
I don't have what to critique, just perhaps to study your envos more if you want to get better with those too, and your colour scheme. Your stills have very vibrant tones all over the place.
you are doing great.Love the construction and even in the ones that you dont like it. Your 3ds are really interesting and heheh u also show how the rocket goes off
keep up the great work mate!!!
The sketchup stuff is cool man! Really nice digi sketches too. You should flesh out some of them, especially this one
Keep it up
Oh boy your immense amount of dedication is astounding! O.O
Those studies are marvelous. Really keep at it.
My only suggestion is while your you work on the studies is not to forget to do have an equal balance of imaginative works as well. So you can apply the cool things you've learned.
I'm out to conquer the world equipped with a pencil, digital paint and a Sketchbook
and when I do achieve that goal...I'll conquer the moon too

Wow, your dedication and improvement are really impressive. You're an inspiration bud! Keep it up.
Kingkostas: Thanks mate! That's reassuring to hear that the construction is up to scratch. Yeah, the rocket was a fun little aftertouch!!
Eddieee: Thanks man! Yes, I think I'll revisit that one, I was liking where it was going but was simply too tired to be able to commit to it at the time.
sanakris: Thanks sanakris! Yeha, I've definitely been neglecting the imaginative side of things, I suppose the problem is that I want to keep studying and end up too tired / fed up to continue from imagination!! I'll have to discipline myself into setting aside some much needed time for imaginative sketching!!
Here's some studies from today, there was another one but I accidently put it's name into the filetype box as a result of fatigue. On top of this I've filled 4 a4 pages with simplified heads also..
nice mate!!!i like the small color enviro studies.Do more of these with a lot of thought, keep asking yourself why
keep up the good work!!!
Woah so many studies, progress is great, keep it up!
richart: Thanks rich!
Ok here's some stuff from today. The nude was approx 2-3hours (too many breaks to remember the actual time), some 5 min heads from ref and some imaginative gestures that I had to cut short because I'm practically falling asleep at the wacom...
I really have to start into my imaginitive work earlier from now on, I can see that leaving it until that night clealy affects my output. I don't feel that tired but it's evident that the old concentration is far from 100%.
Anywho, here's some stuff from today, namely some 5 min heads from ref, a one hour photostudy, several weak gestures from imagination and a crop of some minor progress on the character above.
Please crit and comment, especially harsh crits!!! Point out every little mistake! Tear my stuff to shreds!!!
Krato: Thanks man!
Suira: Thanks! The reason that I am doing the studies in digital is because I want to tget more comfortable with it since i had been neglecting it for a long time.
Heres some work from today, musculature from Loomis (right to left Loomis, then from mind, with corrections in red). Applying that to gestures of female bodybuilders etc. Film stills (20-30 mins each). Heads from mind.
Please crit! Don't be afraid to be harsh!!
i suggest you continue working on anatomy, but instead of doing drawings of birds, people, and enviros.. which all of no sense of value or form.. you should start working on still lifes, solid objects; your watch, headset, mouse, ect... that way you can actually start developing a sense of values which will be carried over someday too your other paintings..
so essentially do anatomy and still life paintings.
huge mount of studying , you are doing wonderful , try more life drawing .

Great studies.Your figures definitely becoming better and better.u look more confident with them.I still find an amount of black in your colors but maybe its just me.But in the second colored work of this last update i dont see the blacks i see in the others.So even at a rough stage this looks better to me.Maybe the others need more saturation in some areas.
Keep it up!!!
Krato: Thanks man! That's sorta what I had in mind, glad to hear that I was thinking along the right track!!
raminafshari: Thanks! Not sure whether you're referring to figure drawing or still lifes, both of which need work anyway!
Kingkotas: Thanks man! You could be right on that one!
Here's a little still life of a skull I sculpted about four years ago (the skull is only about 1" tall excluding the neck and wire stand). About 1-1.5 hours.
