that's a whole lot of sketching you got done bro! i see you picking up some new techniques with hatching also the master study is in ship-shape :3 will keep an eye for sure to see the outcome !
sweet one adam! love the pirate version of batman the master study is progressing well (would love to see a detail shot when it's more refined!)
hmm... i still have to do the clint eastwood w/ shoujo flowers for you simons (look out for that!) kekeke...
t-bro: thank you.
c-bro: thanks, i am aiming higher for the next one.
had a rough start to the week, but i am getting things back on track.
i am going to take a break from this next week, i'll try come back to it with fresh eyes and a bit more enthusiasm.
these are some studies for the next batman image, they are from "the adventures of robin hood"
some inking practice and some sketchbook pages.
judging by the studies for the next batman image... medieval version in the making? i think a break would be nice-- especially with that much invested time in the master study. you're doing great adam!
c-bro: ice of you to say
t-bro: it will be a robin hood batman!
didn't hit my goals this week, so i'll just have to work harder next week!
here is a gif i made and a selection of sketchbook pages.

c-bro: thank you!
j-bro: theme song for my life!
I had an impromptu rest-week this week, it helped me clear my head and deal with some built up stress.
I have scraped the batman i was working on, I realised I was failing one of my main goals with this series, applying a good process.
so I am going to start from scratch after I get to a couple of the things I've been thinking of while gritting my teeth on this batman.
here are some drawings based on Scott Robertson demos,
and some pages from my sketchbook.
I like the Robertson stuff!
I also like you're taking a step back to do the batman pieces how you want and not just how you can, if that make sense.
I am also seriously falling behind with the youtubes! sorry!
It's time to make the future great!
j-bro: I want to be the very best!, like those other guys. thank you.
c-bro: that is what I was getting at. thank you.
so, my main study project is still life drawing.
I am starting with boxes and will move on to round stuff and groups in due course.
i am also working on a short comic, it'll be about 3 pages long.
I have written out a draft script and am now thumbnailing to figure it all out.
and here are some of my sketchbook pages from the past week.
Your inked and painted work looks good. Nice solid, confident lines with the inking. Try to vary the linework a bit more. I like the areas of solid blacks. The pencil sketches are coming along although they don't stand out as much. You've usually got a good sense of gesture lines but sometimes it appears to get mushy. Keep at it though.
Ccs-bro: thanks for the crit, valid points, especially on the mushiness.
J-bro: as an american i want to say thank you and god bless you and god bless america!
C-bro: thank you, I will!
Volume was down but overall quality(or at least positivity) was up.
Couldn't convey the texture on this little box, the second one is the closer of the two.
next few still lifes will be some old books.
the mountain study is from a photo, done after studying some moebius.
this illo sketch is from the same story as my short comic.
and the e.h shepard master study is from wind in the willows.
I gotta a better idea on what to work on more now, thank you for a great sketchbook keep POSTING!!!!

c-bro: thank you very much and sorry for spoiling the new season of dr who.
a-bro: thanks, i'm glad you got something out it.
j-bro: thank you.
looking forward to the coming week, more study, work on my comic and more jackie chan films!
my still life's for the week. i haven't exactly mastered this lot but i am moving on to rounded objects.
and my sketchbook pages.
Thanks for the comment and the article! Your studies are looking good. Maybe try some more ambitious studies, like using a whole page of your sketchbook for one study. Sorry I don't have much useful to say, but it seems to me you're doing everything right!
And uh, I'll just put this here in accordance with tradition.
C-bro: *wink* *thumbs-up*
V-bro: thank you.
I'm tired from mowing...
so this week, i got a few things done but i have found i need to be more specific with what i want to get done in order to get as much done as i want to get done... here are some pictures.
