Fantastic study Jamie, the amount of details great, and it looks like you've up-ed your rendering skills too.
But if you want to make it a little bit more than a study, I do suggest you add a distinctive focal point. Its not hard, in this 2 second paintover I just added a blur mask and defined the edges on the bust. But obviously I'm not commending the use of cheats like masks haha.
Just food for thought
Keep at it man, and I appreciate the poem you posted too, suits my mood atm.
jamie jamie jamie-- that is one hot still life very ambitious study and i commend you for tackling such a challenge :3 especially with natural light! i hope you didn't clean it up yet-- maybe you could tweak a few things to your liking assuming you remember what time of day you did this ><"
looking forward to more my 505 brotha!
Keep it up
do more still lifes of your gasmask!
Love the still life man! keep it up
Hats off to you, my friend. Great job with the stilllife. Minor crit about the tangents, cause there are couple quite distracting ones: between the human skull and computer, and also between that animal skull and the broken vase.
Keep it up.

Fantastic work. Really list the recent painting.

Art so far SketchBook
What ismo & Matt said. Also other than the light from the computer there's not much reflected colour from one object to another. Look again and look harder.
Hey dude. Great sb! love the anatomical studies, hands, antelope heads etc.
Nice loose, flowing pencil marks.
This complex study came along great. Really nice still life. Keep it going OmertA , most points have been mentioned already.
Really nice still life, I saw it when you first posted it and it inspired me to do one myself
I also skimmed through a couple of pages before this one and I noticed a really nice use of color on that gladiator digital and that rough little deer digital you did. I need to work on my colors ha. Keep postin dawg

Thanks for replying in my sketchbook and the tip. You got a great sketchbook here. Strong studies and some beautiful finished works. Keep up the good work!
Hey man I dig the hand studies on page 34 and nice rendering on the latest piece. :]
SKETCHBOOK below. C&C appreciated! UPDATED 21/04 2011
That study KICKS ASS. The second close-up is so interesting.
The others already caught everything that I could see myself to crit (and some stuff I didn't even notice), so there's just praise from me. It's awesome to see your stuff again
hücumkedi-Yeah colors always have a hard time with that always interesting
Valoo- Thanks for dropping by there were allot of places where I kinda rushed and I messed the focal point up big time. But overall I think I learned something from this still life.
JailHouseRock2- Matt! whats up man? thanks for the paint over defiantly helped me out alot. I'm going to be keeping and eye out for focal point now in my work.
fudgeloaf- Hey man honestly dont know how long I worked on that still life. But I know I started it around the end or middle or winter and finished when spring hit. Probably the most time I've ever put into a study.
teapo-yeah unfortunately I cleaned that still life up Mike got burned out on it XD Wish I would have left it there are a ton of things that pop out at me. Hope all is going well man.
JohnSKxoxo-Thanks John and will do.
Vodus-Yeah still life's man there a challenge but that's kinda what makes it fun.
ismo- Tangents people have been mentioning that alot to me will have to keep a eye out for that more. Thanks for the crit ismo
jon norton- Been trying to incorporate the more loose flowy marks from the line work to my final stuff but will fail at it : P thanks for stopping by Jon
Farvus- will try to vary my line work more thanks for that crit man. Lines are defiantly really fun to do, pretty interesting how much information you can get out of one line.
Lang Oulk- hm not to sure if it is quarts but it is some sort of weird rock crystal haha.
Ariel9- Thanks Ariel yeah wanted to post some close ups to kinda show how abstract it all kinda is up close. Hope all is well.
And thanks JohnSKxoxo, Vodus, Cerasela,jeremygordon89 ,Xavvaniv, Velocity,in2eternity, [ste], Forrest_I for the compliments it's always appreciated
It sure has been awhile since my last post I've been in a traditional drawing and painting phase but still need to get pictures of all my studies.
Been working on this imaginative painting trying to put my studies together. Allot of stuff wrong but it's been fun and challenging.
Before the end

Love love love the tilted motion in this picture. It really gives the horse movement and you can actually feel it when you look at it. Love all the details, the skull garland, the skeletons rising on the ground, the helmet design..etc. Great job!
Love the armor on the death knight!
hala-Thanks alot for the feed back hala yeah really do like to try and capture movement but it's tough. That piece was pretty time consuming.
Lyno-Hey Lyno doing well man. Trying to balance everything out in life right now social life and just future stuff. Your right about the hands though they need some more love.
[ste]- Thanks nice updates in your sketchbook aswell ste
Tides-Thanks man drew the armor to be honest cause I was lazy on doing more of a functional character.
AlexTooth-Thanks Alex yeah that still life was really interesting natural light is neat.
Time to get back on the grind wanna get back into posting more.
It's been a really long time since some real sketchbook stuffs been posted. Been getting into this drawing in straight ball point pen phase for my studies.
Kinda makes you think about what your gonna do before you do it more.
Still life was watching into the wild to so wrote some quote down.
