Didn't get as much done as usual, busy with a few other things/being lazy
I have decided/discovered that I need to spend more time on individual things instead of just getting them done!
It was eurovision last sunday(here that is) and I was challenged to do some portraits so I did a few in pencil and tried to do one in photoshop, one of the places I realised I need to take more time!
My attempted at painting a jedward(maybe John?)
Two quick Elvgren studies
Hey fool, the amount of work you've been cranking out is awesome, you're makin' me feel like a lazy sea slug. May i ask where you get your photo muscular reference? I've gone through bridgman and others many time now and the studies are all starting to look the same, i could use some branching out.
You're outa control, keep that fire burnin!
Great studies!post more works you keep on improving mate=)
Awesome artist and friends
You're the second person I've seen draw Jedward this week. Now I am over come with the urge to follow the trend. O_O IT'S DRAWING ME INNNN.
ALSO. Bloody hell, mate! Your figures. You do so many! You keep that up and in a few years your skills in drawing people are going to be terrifyingly good. So you better keep it up!
No crits this time, just keep it up as always.
Now, excuse me as I go pic out pictures of the jedward twins to draw...
cool stuff mate! Can't wait to see more ^_^
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

My57: Thank you! your wait is over
Just drawing this week. I plan to get back in to some painting after watching matt kohr's latest download
Wow bruce you've got a silly amount of reference photos going just for muscles, but really man JEDWARD eeeeeew haha sketches are looking great as always keep pushing man lets see some life studies! get someone to flex infront of you
I like your sketchbook entries. Very comprehencive and deep. I like that you focus on understanding the shape and form, not just copying it. Overally nice linework. Maybe you should try some tone work if you're interested. You seem to get the hang of lines. Very loose and dynamic, I suppose if you focus on pencil technique, work on rendering through crosshatching and other grips of the pen, using the wide side of the lead. You can also try to lay down a tone and use the eraser as a drawing device - to draw light instead of shadow. Hope I was helpful.
adamsimons: That's cool!
JamesSimons: The one and only!
fudgeloaf: Thanks man, I'll get to some life drawing some day!
*Rena*: Thank you!
Naidy: Naturally we do and Danke Schön for the compliment! p.s. there is a pattern for when I update can you find it?
Moonrage: Thanks man. Rendering is something I've been trying to do more of, but I have to remember to make myself do it!
First, I've done doing some studies after matt kohr's latest download the forth one is a wip.
And the sketches!
broooce! bruce! man... now that's what i call updates i'm always amazed at the amount of space you fill up on your sketchbook pages those digital studie after kohr's seem to be helping a ton! tempted to look into his downloads but then again i think i will just stick to my guns xD
adamsimons: Thank you!
JamesSimons: Thank you! Will do!
Spent some time (most amount I've ever spent on one was half an hour) on a few master studies this week!
The Zorn was 5 hours, the Repin was 3 and a half hours and the Andrea Del Sarto was 4 hours, I got pretty lost with this one
I also started on doing one hundred hands, got to 46 at the time of posting
JamesSimons: The fuuturee!
teapo: Thanks man, it's just a matter of time!
Didn't get a whole lot done in terms of volume but I've been working on a few things trying to get better taking my time to do it right instead of as fast as possible and hoping!
The start (7hours in ) of my master study of one of my favourite paintings Gyula Benczur's The Baptism of Vajk (and gurneys post about him) I'm working from a bigger reproduction which I got from chiu stream which isn't up anymore for some reason.
Oooooh! You're a weekly updater! Christ, you'd think I'd have noticed by now. xD
Anyways, Those female figures your doing are really getting there, it's hard to look away from them, which is strange for a girl to say... damn it. People will start questioning my sexuality now. Oh, and I'm lovin' the hands.
Also- THOSE MASTER STUDIES. Yes. Just yes.
Keep up the good work as always, mate!
niiice lighting studies with the jugs, nice jugs . master studies are very hot! like on fire!
Studies are great but i want to see more of your invented drawings and concepts, those are really cool. Please? Also people with animal heads. Love the little ninja (post 130 i believe) Keep up the good work
adamsimons: Blast from the past!
JamesSimons: *sound of clapping* Thank you *bows* *sound of clapping*
Naidy: Thank you! weekly updating is bad for uploading but good for my productivity
teapo: It's a great painting I hope to learn a lot from it
Jeremy Swan: Thanks man!
Jason Scanlon: Thanks man. I'm actually working on a piece but it's taking its time and I have to do the studies to make my invented stuff look nice
Most of my drawing this week was morning warmup/night time doodling as I have been putting my time to the master study and trying to workout a composition for my Bobby Chiu fairytale re-imagined competition entry, plus a secret project!
Also the rule that is two have the third must sucks when it involves a cold!
Progress on the study 16hr in!
