another pencil - monkey king! Hwah!
some work in progress,
Lav - thanks, yes I should really do more value stuff,
here are some more leg studies done in vine charcoal,
some more studies of bridgman, the rendering is pretty much my own though,
The first two are from bridgman, the other three are completely without reference,
Veshkau - thanks
Lav - cheers, always trying to get good anatomy
a little bit on forearms and another sketch, oh, and I start college tommorow, or rather today, as its past midnight heh. Im doing a BTEC national diploma in art and design, only course
two self portraits and my feet from the mirror, some unreffed legs, they are still a bit dodgy, and some brush pen samurai thing haha. man I really need to brush up on my rendering :l

Really nice stuff man! I like your lines. One thought I have on that black and white piece of the barbarian dude, his face expression don't really matches his aggressive body language. Perhaps give him a more pissed off expression, yelling or something? Just a thought. Keep up the good work man!
Alexson - Thanks man, I will and he is nearly done
wow, no update for a while :l college is busy I guess.
heres just some studies and a couple of things from life. I have a bunch of other life drawings from model, but they are in an a3 sketchbook and its too awkward to scan :l

super cool updates man! you can realy see that youre allready done some serious studies. what doesnt say that you shout stop by any means something for you to think about: if you whant to improve your rendering, try to think less in lines and more in planes!
Thanks Late, good point it sounds like an obvious thing to think about that I havent tried,
and cheers sean, yeh my colour is still a little awkward and off at the moment though :l
Heres a bunch of value studies from photos, (no eyedropper!), more work on the barbarian, after doing those studies and looking back I realised how monochrome it looked.

nice amount of anatomy studies, shadows are bit uniform right now though, maybe one still life with one light source? like lamp? that would be really nice to see
