hey snubbed...really like your pencil shading techniques, very good stuff.
as for the anatomy issues....it's probably one of the hardest things to transfer knowledge from studies into imagination stuff..... some things that helped me are..
First of all (i guess your doing it already), to study other artists everytime you're not able to draw yourself ..go through their sketchook or whatever...for me it was amazing to see that i kept a lot of things in my mind just by watching other sb's and anatomy studies.
...also always remember a few simple rules/measurments concerning the body anatomy (before you put pencil to paper), wich are described in every hogarth or loomis book (or you can find out yourself). e.g. that the hand has about the same length like from the chin to the eybrows...this stuff.........helped me alot in anatomy.
this two things combined with drawing from ref is in my oppinion the perfect method to get good results. ..(hope you can get something out of this)
Keep it up
I have decided to focus on pencils and drawing. I was trying to learn everything at once. No good.
Thanks for the comments everyone! I would love to know specifics. It's hard for me to look at my drawings and say "focus on anatomy" without know what looks weird right now. If you can point out and say "this is wrong" I would love to hear it.
Delmar - I get really pumped up when I look at your sketchbook, so having you stop by mine and comment was a real treat. Thanks
Flamable - thanks for the comments!
Krossj - your new ink style is really killer. Thanks for commenting. I'd love to hear what anatomy issues you are seeing that you want me to work on. I'm all over the place, it seems.
Wow, really nice stuff you have here! I'll be checking you SB later for more updates!
Thanks van jhuju
a little fan art i did over my lunch hour. asaj in her classic pose.
small update. first time really drawing an expression. shocked? awed? kind of pissed off, but too shocked to notice?
double post somehow
Yea, been looking pretty closeley at a lot of your work, biggest difference I can make out is that you know were to put all of those nice "wedges, bumps, humps, and curves" in your work, so it looks natural. I try the same thing, and it always seems a little bit un-natural, while yours seems to enhance your work.
(man, I bet those foundation classes reallly paied off, and the exersises in the anatomy book (something about painting with coffie, yea, sorry sunubbed but I'm proabley going to go back to that one and copy it a few times to just figure out for myself what it felt like to draw that knee! lol) or, whatever you ment by that.
anyway, I'm going to bite into that exersise, and ttyl dude!
Vhan Juju - Some (many) of those early studies are from a master figure artist named Bridgman. You should check out his books. I just don't want you to mistake some of that stuff as my own - rather it was copied from him so I, too, could learn the cool wedges, bumps and such.
kinda' cheater update. just more drawings on same page as yesterday's stuff. heart wasn't really in it.
Yea, but for whatever reason I can't find those books at my bookstore, (stuiped hasteings!)
But I did a a few times anyway, just for fun
I don't know how to add the sketch book link but I appreciate u taking the time to look at my stuff. I'm not going to go further in the drawing cuz i'm not good at shading. That's actually what attracted me to your art.. because of your shadingshading is well done. I'll add more sketches up this week

very nice, you have a unique style keep it up.
The head with big pupil-less eyes was inspired by Mr. Grumbles sketchbook here on CA. Wanted to make sure I give credit.
I Love the way u shade..uve probably heard that a lot but what the heck..yeah and that girl in post 69, she looks shocked but doesn't understand what's happening..i think..
hey I have that sketcbook is it one of those moleskines? really good aint they?
I'm loving your style, it's all very confident work. keep it up.
Wow your style is great - the lines seem.. vicious. You've got all these sharp intersecting plains that really get across a feeling of energy. I like the last few moleskine pages. Cheers for the comment on my sb!
Qadi - thanks for the comment - you're right. She's shocked but dumbfounded
Mute.Pablo - yeah, it's a moleskine. First one I've used. I like it!
LairRadical - thanks for coming by my book! I'm really liking your stuff. Hope you stick around. And I stole your technique for coloring this piece.
So here is a sketch I did for my friend's dungeons and dragons character (yeah, I'm a dork, so what?) I stole the pose from Victoria's Secret. Great source of hotties.
it is what it is
I love how swanky and loose your sensibility is. Everything's so light and free but still solid and easy on the eyes.
Since you've got so much (extremely justified) confidence in putting down casual lines and having them look good, what if you stretched yourself with wetter, harder-to-control media?
Frogisis - funny you should mention that. Over the weekend I was trying to use watercolor for the first time in years. I remember why I gave up before. It's fricking hard. I want to find a way to combine my penciling skills with watercolor to create a more textured and "finished" look similar to Holovan or Ian Francis (http://www.ifrancis.co.uk/index.html)
Anyway, thanks for comment!
Hi there snubbed, I'm grateful for opening up your book of sketches. Your anatomy studies of bridgeman are shaping up wonderfully. You are on a great path, keep trailblazing!
Sketchbook!! Please help me improve!
Thanks Jenzi. Unfortunately, this is about as finished as get. Butterfly Bride is probably the most finished piece I've done. Probably as finished as I will get for a while. I enjoy the sketchy look and will always have that in my work.
KidApe - thanks for the encouragement!
Here's something I did. Sketch first, then finished piece.

as close to a self portrait as I'll probably ever come.
go go ultimate frisbee!
Realy enjoy your shading method , but i feel some times things look too shiny.Anyway still looks prety cool
And i have the same probblem with doing finished pieces i gues its not that easy when you want to do everything good.
I will keep checking your sketchbook.
I'm going to be water coloring and doing some photo transfer stuff to this piece. I'll post as it goes along.
