hey thx man, also found something called pixelovely, and btw thx for continuing to stop by my sketchbook. I was inspired for it actually browsing through other sketchbooks and came across a war scene, thought it would be an awesome idea so hopefully it will be. hey just checked out that site and its pretty cool! much better than what i was using.
hmm thinking about ARC community college, they have character design and stuff like that and i can go there free basically
thx alot Ali King
thx Howie, heres some fast observational sketches after my chem test today, had some time after so drew these ,theres so much stuff that can be learned from life

heres a moderately quick sketch from a movie still(arwen from lord of the rings) to study skin tones because i want to improve on them and digital painting with gimp. i also added random stuff i thought would look interesting just for fun.( so its basically a movie still study with stuff added to it)

started a study of a sculpture tonight , very beginning. gotta finish this and my Teen Challenge piece. wish i had more time to do my art lately just seems like I have to make time for it whenever possible.
studies of differing glossiness on spheres, also applied patterned textures to them to see if it would work on materials. hmm maybe next ill do some textured spheres(rocks and stuff) and hand paint them and their edges . for once i have more than an hour free to work on art today actually have most of the day which is awesome.

Yeah, I've heard of pixelovely, used it for quite a while.
It's great to see you churning out more and more studies/drawings, you'll see, you'll get better without realizing it.
Btw, that statue looks good!
I know you want to click here. Just do it, don't be afraid!
thx man, and hopefully I will cant wait to reach page 20 or something and look back , and thx its cool thinking about 3 dimensions and sculpting form.worked on this painting of a sculpture some more in gimp

so i fiiiiinally got a free trial of photoshop, dang i want to own this program so badly, heres some quick silhouette sketches in it, soooo much more user friendly and easy to use than gimp.

heres a couple drawings i did from imagination, no reference, gonna redo some of them with reference in a little bit.-need to recheck the proportions and miscellaneous stuff too. really need to do a lot more gestures also to get more fluid characters, maybe ill do some more soon.-wow just those couple torso studies and armor reference i used earlier are helping my imagination work- getting a visual memory of different things will definately help me in the long run. hmm definately need to work muuuch more on the anatomy of legs and feet-along with the rest of the body of course- just noticed the gastrocnemeus on the guy on the left is barely noticable and too thin..

heres some quick sketches done without reference(gotta take the time and get some lol). On the drawings Im really hating that my scanner loses a lot of the value in the image especially the lighter values and I have to overedit them to see them clearly, and ive still lost a lot of the drawing information. These are mainly just to apply some of the things Im learning and focus on what ive got to learn still.

some quick observational sketches done in a waiting room and my backyard and found an old(about a year) but quick acrylic painting inspired by dragonlance. when I have time hoping to do some still lifes and gestures. I think for my next imaginative drawings I'm gonna get a lot of different references to make more realistic pieces.

got some reference for details, and working on this some more. lighting really is a very complicated subject-sespecially how they do it for film, definately gonna have to study lighting a lot more in depth.
Great to see the progress and dedication!
The main thing that needs work is proportions. Pay a lot of attention to the size of things compared to other things. (For example, the mohawk guy in the latest post has a teeny tiny waist compared to his chest.) Measure (e.g. with a pencil) if you have to. I think I'd go as far as to recommend just practicing proportion for a while -- eye it, check with measuring, then compare the differences. Proportion is one of the most important elements to get right for a drawing (especially when you start getting into faces and likeness).
The next thing is the balance of some of your figures seems to be off. For example the guy with the shield in the latest pic is kinda leaning to the right. Another thing is that a lot of them have fairly static poses -- slight issues with balance are exaggerated when a thing is static. Two books that could help with both these things are Force: Dynamic Life Drawing by Mike Mattesi and Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Michael Hampton. (I think you'll especially like Force -- will help give that punch you're reaching for. It made me start looking at figures in a different way.)
So in short: Gesture drawing and proportions. Good luck!
thx Lulie , ya i definately need to work on those, oi want my characters to be more alive and have movement and definately work on my proportions i think thats acrtually the most difficult one for me, btw is there a pdf of that force book? maybe ill buy it ive heard of it before and wondered if its good, thx a lot always enjoy constructive criticism
thanks man thats a great idea, and ill try
quick sketch for a challenge- accidentally made the legs slightly slanted, hopefully i can fix the right side. Im also working on a frazzetta study in pencil- ill post that when done.. hmm that whip is really flat, gotta add some depth to it.
finished it, too bad i noticed the legs werent straight enough so late, oh well was too lazy to fix it and ill try not to make that mistake again atleast. in the second piece i put the scorpion tails back a lil into the distance. Dang cant believe im going to be 18 in just 6 days
