You've got some brilliant stuff going on here. I especially enjoy your pencil and ballpoint sketches. Looking at your work, I've realized that I have to start improving my pencil skills. I need to start learning how to create tones with hatching and study the hell out of planes. Thanks for the motivation boost ! Btw I want more updates !

"All artists are prepared to suffer for their work, but why are so few prepared to learn to draw?"
MY SKETCHBOOK, COMMENT & CRITIC THE SHIT OUT OF ME
sorry no update in a while. i feel like most stuff ive been doodling lately is not really CA sketchbook material and probably pretty boring to look at as a spectator because its just me studying and trying to improve specific things
but here are some studies i did today from photo ref, all are 1 hour each.
thank you very much patonki and kevin
here's another little landscape painting study from ref i did today, 3 hours this time
for fun i also made a recording again of the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuz8iCQXR7I

You're doing it man! The enviros you work out are really put together, especially the last winter scene - great success compared to past stuff. How to crit this? Consider working on larger formats for the pro live drawing stuff and go apeshit. Don't limit yourself to pen and get some good fluid strokes (gittity)
I love your environments and the colors you have in them are fabulous!
Seen some of your pieces over on ic, great stuff! Especially the desk still life.
Loving your studies. It's all looking so great. And I especially like your George Costanza! Seinfeld ftw!
That's some insane understanding and exposition of form paired with brilliant brush control.
Mind sharing some sources of your knowledge?
thanks for the flattering words niall. i dont have any sources in particular, but one resource that has helped me a lot the last few months is Feng Zhu's channel on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/user/FZDSCHOOL. all the videos there are extremely informative
here's a 1 hour face from life, and a ~3.5 hour painting from ref

Yeah, I aswell tend to watch at least one of his videos a day, lately.
You seem to be doing lots of screencap/photo studies just like any other guy on these forums,
could you perhaps shed some light on its purpose, please?
As I noticed I gain little to nothing during the process, merely copying what I see.
Hope you don't mind, I'm just looking for the clues.
the main use of doing a study of existing pictures is because you can practice technique and mechanics without having to concern yourself with composition and anatomy, etc. i dont like doing them cause it's pretty boring and overall not super useful, but if im pretty tired and still want to get some more hours of drawing in or try a type of scene i haven't before it's better than nothing
here's a little life drawing from tonight and a little sketch without ref to practice value control
Thanks a lot!
Digital colours are solid, and your natural media/ pen life drawings are beautiful. Keep on.
