lionheartGFX: Aha trying not too man, I might have some more freetime coming up, which means more time to update! ^_^ But yeah gotta work on those fundamentals aha...been rocking the pencils lately gotta get around to scanning them. Lot's of fun
Istmin52: Oh yeah they are kinda metal-y, I was really just trying to push the values in them. They are a lot more neutral in the refs. Uhm yeah I agree, about the photos, I mean I set up everything myself on the edge of my desk and take the pictures. It's quite the balancing act...what has it taught me more than anything else. I need a bigger desk
Mepainter: Oh thank you very much! You're too kind ^_^
kevin_: Haha secret updates my friend XD Thanks for the compliments it's super cool to know you're watching...I mean you're a ton better than me, it's a neat feeling ^_^

Hey guys or anyone that sees this! I'm back sort of. Here's some stuff I've been working on over the past couple weeks. Schools ending so guess whose hopefully gonna have more time to draw! ^_^
WICKED jealous of your hands mate. I think you can push the values and the contrast in those studies more dude! YEAH!! GO DARK! Where do you get the hands to study from? That seems like a lot more than self-supplied. ^_^
Also I haven't seen you in a while for real. Glad you will be around more!

hell yeah, no matter how awesome digital is its never gonna beat that feeling of working with paper and pencil you have been tearing it up with tose studies! where did you find ref for that? id love to try those too, keep the awesomness coming sir!
Some great stuff! Something I would suggest is drawing more diverse people--in age, race, weight, stuff like this. Excited to see more in the future!
Wow all those hands are insane! I really need some of that diligence!
I like post #694 - it makes me want to draw more hands and paint - well it gives me inspiration;

Elias Leonard: Thanks! aha I actually did...that's why I love this SB...I may not be as good as I want to be...but I'm coming along! ^_^
They're a pair XD Studies later. Enjoy everyone ^_^
I'm really liking those helmets... It's a neat concept + well executed to boot! I don't have too many suggestions- just, keep working at it. Keep doing some of those still lifes (apples for the win) and practicing your drawing. You'll get to where you wanna be!
impressive progress, keep it up!
"A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed
Very nice work on those materials! Love the contrast between the hard surfaces and the hair. Rim light is sexy.
Take care of your edges when doing still life, even if that's not the main focus of the exercise - it's a good thing to practice whenever possible!
I wish you a (very belated!) successful 2013!
Great work! It's really inspiring seeing someone put the hours in and get some awesome returns.
