Your pencil sketches are really great. Some proportional issues here and there, but good work nonetheless.

hey man I must have missed something that happened between last year and this year (LARA?)
your pencils are totally rocking. The shading on the figure studies looks so effortless but I always wonder how long it actually takes to do one of those.
Loving the sketches and larger life drawing pieces, bookmarked!
How are you finding the lara course? Im thinking of saving up and coming along for the easter short course, but im put off by the sight size teaching method. Any input you could give on your experience thus far would be fantastic.

bhcs - if its just sight size putting you off then dont worry about it, people over think how big a deal working in sight size is. think about it more as a method of setting up your easel than an entirely alien drawing. sight size or not, you will improve at any atelier.

.....and here's a pic of my set up in the cast room,
i dno maybe its of interest to someone lol ...
Hey Raffix I appreciate seeing your cast setup. I always fancy trying to set up something at home but I am not to sure how to set it up, now I know. If possible could you post a pic of how you set up your lights for working on it.
I think your progress is great and I love seeing what you are doing. I'm just trying to work out how to separate my light from shadow and finding it hard to see so your drawings really help.
olly and andrew - thanks a lot guys, are either of you going to brandon's class at LCF on thursdays? if so i might see you there
havnt taken enough photos of my stuff lately, here are just a few short pose pencils from lara
wip of next cast project. this is after 3 afternoons work so like 6-7 hours ....
Hey Raffix this is interesting to see. Do you lay in a mid tone for the shadow areas first and then lay in what you see as the darkest values? I'm struggling a bit myself with seeing shadow shapes that aren't clearly defined and how best to progress past this stage.
I'm glad to see that you really are doing so well and enjoying your studies.
Hi Marian, id be happy to try and help
its best to start blocking in some very simple shadow shapes to begin to distinguish between areas of shadow (where no light is being directly cast on the form) and lights (everywhere else, halftones still count as lights).
the value you use to block these shadow shapes in is pretty arbitrary at this point, best to not go too dark so you can easily change the shapes. once i'm relatively happy with my shape i will put in a value for the background (again it not too dark) as this almost always changes the shapes/sizes of the light shapes. then redefine light and shadow shapes.
once im happy enough with these i will find the darkest area of the set up (almost always the cast shadow of the cast on the black shadow box). i will key this value as dark as i can possibly go with the charcoal, so a soft stumpy bit is best. from there all the other values can be related to that darkest dark.
i have made a step-by-step cmpilation of my nose cast to help explain this:
ok i hope that was a bit helpful!! please feel free to ask any other questions you have.
....and to make sure i am not updating the thread with no new stuff:
coming n nicely man, tube sketches have great gestures in them,
Mane - thanks man
Marian - no worries. yeah i would like to video a drawing progress i think it would be really educational as my process is very haphazard especially in the mid stages of the drawing

Charcoal + chalk on toned canson, monday night, 90 minutes:
Early stages (about 2 hours in) of a portrait of a friend (another lara student), hb pencil on some shitty sketchbook paper:
What a great sketchbook! Thanks for stepping through you process for Marian and showing your various portraits at different stages of completion, especially with the construction lines. For beginners like me, seeing stuff like that is immensely helpful. Keep up the awesome work!
thanks a lot marian and rishenko. if any of what im posting is helpful in anyway then I will definitely try and post much more processes etc
wednesday night portrait from LARA drop in life drawing, 1.5 hrs, charcoal and chalk on canson:
