Some anatomy studies:
Another torso study
Did some loomis heads and a few color studies offa some screens
everything looks really great!
Seems like you're developing a really unique style!
Binarydood: Thanks man, trying to be more accurate with my studies, things always seem to get a lil too stylized.
Did another half hour color study before heading home:
you have some serious skills developing and a lot of knowledge. Your cleary putting in the work between posts i guess just keep doing what you are doing as its clearly working for you
Dude, I love your stylized stuff. Inspired me to go draw some more now... ty!
ja1307, Yassu, rokushoxxx: Thanks guys. The plan is to keep pushing myself on a daily basis. I have a habit of slacking off to the point where Im hardly doing any art.
Decided to participate in CHOW# 303 "Spirit of Winter". Thumbs so far:
this may be a little rude to ask but, where do you find those pictures? You take them yourself or there are websites around with collected photos of movies?
Binarydood: lol, its not rude at all. i normally just google "move screencaps" and ive found a few sites that way. But recently I found one that has blu ray screens....the videophile in me was well pleased. Have fun: http://www.cinemasquid.com/blu-ray/m...nshots#index-b
Just a quick native american study:

Great stuff in here! Like the chow thumbs
Check out my SKETCHBOOK!
kasblue, JBogart: Thanks guys ^_^. Made my day.
Here's a 2 hour master study. Still struggling! Anyone have any tips?
i try master studies as well. not at your level, but still... and the problems i face mostly is that i fail firstly to capture the essence of the strokes by the master artist. then second most important thing is absolutely the color. they just know so well what to put in there and we are only trying to copy that. well... these are the major problems i face. i think you're doing wonderfully well and if you keep going like this... you might even find out the secret ingredient.
Kasblue: I know exactly what you mean. Mimicking brush stroke and trying to get that color spot on while keeping the structure right is sooo friggin hard! I guess we just have to keep workin it over and over until it starts becoming second nature.
Tried to go over the Reilly stuff again and work my values in the right planes. Tackling the front view right now. I feel i understand the face planes a lil better. More to come:
Good stuff man! You've got some solid pieces here. You could use some more edge variation in the Van Dyck study, if you look at the real painting you'll see that theres actually alot of soft edges in his face, especially at the bottom of the noce, around the chin and where the forehead connects to the background. The edges you have at the moment seem to be of roughly the same kind which effects the readibility of the image. Theres also something going on with the proportions: it seems you need some more between the nose and the mouth as well as the mouth and the chin. Atleast that what it seems like to me when I did a quick image search for the painting, I'm not sure if I was looking at master studies or images of the original painting.

Cool stuff.. solid lights and skin tones in the first torso of post 59. Good to see
I see the progress through the time - you've definetely become more confident in you painting. Don't forget doing creative and imaginative stuff too though.
