a la bapsi: hahaha thanks. FlyLo is great!!!
Pocoyo: try it. it's very liberating once you get down something almost perfect the first time!
Krato: yes i do feel i'm getting a lot out of them. i'm having fun doing this and the mundane days are flying by as well as my doubts of what i can or can't do. i look at a complicated pattern, building, person's face, and don't think it's impossible to draw. i just draw it and learn from what i see. i'm seeing clearer, deeper, and more than normal people see everyday because i'm actually seeing. but thank you for the tips, though those things are for study time... which is EVERYDAY OF MY LIFE! :] cheers!
B-Man: lol!!thanks man!
going away again for a grandmother's reunion. yay more sketching! ;]
I really like your gestures! keep it up! go go go :]
When you do these armor studys do you start with a middle value then add the darks and lights?
If you push the rendering I hope to see you add some tear and wear to them plates. Dents and scratches always makes armor way cooler.
Neat sketches man. I'm absolutely for it that you keep doing them, i believe they're one of the best ways to drive the fear of drawing away. Which reminds me, i should do that more often myself :o
Matt!!! *explosion* man you're still kicking ass! sorry for missing so much.
Love the loose sketches you do, you seem to be nailing the gestures with much ease, I wonder if you have noticed them helping your drawings from imagination?
Cool Knight studies too, captured the surfaces perfectly in those. More, sir!
lens flare renaissance

r y a n o i r: haha thanks. dem only studies though. you're awesome!
Krato: thankssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss bro ;]
SirGreenSock: good tips thank you!
B-Man: yeah middle value and push out from there. sometimes all black and pushed out from there. i was just getting the study down to it's basics. not rendering at this point. maybe in the future. gracias!
teapo: haha i wish i had some of those armors! thanks!
walnut: haha yes. less fear of tackling things. that's my problem. i need to overcome it! go go go!! thanks!
Koto: oh heck yes. tons of help! i can remember things easier when i draw from imagination and know how to render certain things because i've sketch them for so long! thanks for stopping by you need to update your sb! i miss your arts!!
Metal Fingers: thanks! az was amazing. had a fantastic time with friends and my brother. we swam practically everyday. such a great place to be and always super warm, which i love. how's OREGON?
OmertA: thanks for checkin up on me. you have a good one too!!!
Odayga: hmmm chameleon? where? haha thanks!
back from my gma's 90th bday. had a great time with family and ate too much ice cream. now back to my P90X routine as well as painting! woo! thank you all for the inspiration to draw even more!
Metal Fingers: where you going? to a POD?
brought a leaf with me from outside today. being in an office all day without a window can really detach you from nature. so i brought nature in with me! lol i like feeling the texture.
nature wins!!! but so does technology... sometimes :3 no wait most of the time HAHAA jk jk. stuck in the office all day dude? day time job..? :U
anyway matt.. good sketches i notice you do a lot of observing around you.. i should do that more.. we'll see hehe..
That little sketch of a bird taking a piss and wearing a top hat made my day....haha :]
teapo: yes. i am in an office most of the day. though i should wake up earlier and play around in the sun more often. i just can't wake up earlier than 9! it's so hard! ;] yes, observe EVERYTHING! it's so fun
Metal Fingers: woo have fun in the wind and sun! :]
Benjie: otay... haha got to find more reference!
LisandroG: actually i stole that from one of my friends. i saw it for 2 seconds in her sketchbook and memorized it and redrew it ... though i added the penis and urine puddle. :]
r y a n o i r: GMILF HAHAHA i love that show! i only have season 1. and what season are they on now?
won't be here tomorrow so i added an extra sketch. ;] hope you DON"T MIND!
also doing this p90x workout which is making my muscles ripped and i have more energy than i've ever had before! it's really great and makes me draw more than normal. hahaha!
i'm also in love with my 007 James Bond film collection (all 22 films). such a great series. the last 2 films make me happy with their sleek polished look and the directing is fantastic. so much better than those over-the-top unrealistic ones from the 90s on.

Metal Fingers: thanks for the offer man! ;] yeah you have a good eye. i've been enthralled with The Incredibles. watch it every Wednesday night when i take care of the kids in church. lol i put it on commentary, and the kids say, "that's not the right movie, put the right movie in!" then i tell them this is a special version and they just play. haha
teapo: heck yes! thanks man! you keep up the good work too!!
my friend anna. i worked the colors exactly to the photograph, then switched the colors up to the way i'd like them. i feel much better with my colors. learned a bit in this one.
I really like the color schemes in your studies as well as how its layed out compositionally and your sense of verisimilitude.. ex: how you paint water.. realistic. Very well done. would like to see some completed digital studies/paintings as of recently too
Her pose feels a little stiff to be honest, i think it's in the shoulders. And perhaps some sharper edges or some more saturation in the foreground, to deepen the perspective. Yeah, i'm nitpicker
