Nice update. I see exactly what you did with implementing some "quality control" as you put it. And that you learned from it. I'm lookin forward to seeing more!
W0w!!! You are very strong with pencil rodrigo but how about trying some different media just so you have a wide range of capabilities? That'd be a good thing to do because you don't want to get into a comfort zone. Just a thought.
You render very well, but maybe take a bit more time before going in with the darker tones. Hope I don't come across as arrogant cause I really like your stuff!
will it be wrong of me to scream UPDATE!!!!!!!!?
That last update shows some ridiculous progress, mate! You're working hard!! Starting Uni, right? You're gonna be blowin' us all away in no time at all!!! Keep up the great drawing habits and this work is going to just multiply with skill. Give us an update soon. Hope you're doing well.
Top 0.06% was it, bitch? Elite of the elite national art exhibition, was it??? CHARLES SAATCHI SUCKING YOUR DICK, WAS IT MOTHER FUCKER???????
Come on, people at ca don't be jealous when one of ours succeeds. Share the news with the brothers of the brown forum
i left this thread for dead because i was hardly drawing, ive been too hard on myself lately when i have been analysing my own stuff.
blog i agree with you, thanks
thanks comix nut
yes shoeman, so so wrong, so bad, you naughy boy! haha kidding, heres your update.
thanks a lot zebzfree i will be going to uni in 2007 probably.
hahah my good msn friend dirty c, for those who think hes a rambling maniac including me, hes talking about my high school results, where my percentile rank was 99.4 which is the top .06 of the state.
oh and if you all remember that high school major work i was working on for like 5 months, yeah i got 100 for that which was cool, putting me 4th in state out of 9000 or so. but meh, it doesnt mean anything if i dont continue art which i have to keep at it...
but yeah, i managed to work up the courage to face the sketchbook to draw again, ill be the 1st to admit their nothing but a start, didnt use any reference.

I'm not much of a drawer but it seems to me that if you are not satisfied with your work, in order to improve you need to draw more not less .
Anyway I really love your work (I signed up to CA just to subscribe to your thread) and i hope you wont take a long drawing break again anytime soon.. or i'll have to hit you.. hard..
Congratz on the score bro. I'm proud of my lil' Rod! You're kickin' all sorts of arse these days, mate. Keep at it, ok?! You sound a bit tired and down but be encouraged! You're movin' along great!! The last ones are nice, man. I like how you handle the pelvis/thigh areas. Very solid rendering in there. Please post more often, ok!?!
maxetormer- thanks buddy i appreciate it
magicman- haha youre too kind man cheers!
bone studies from ref, still really interested in learning how the arm bones work...long way ahead though.. i so wish i had a skeleton model of my own to study

loving your stuff especially your faces and the females, I'm having trouble with does forms myself at the moment so it's nice to how other peole deal with those things.
beware my avatar is cooler then my drawings
hey bro,i think the most obvious problem in you work to me,is drawings the head to big and connections it the head and neck to the body.
apart from that..great!
wow, what a wonderful Sb you got rodrigo, very inspirational, and congratulations on that 0.06 stuff! I can only imagine what this looks like after a year!

noob, thanks buddy im glad you had the time to drop me some advice, ill definitely have to watch out for that
thanks timpatkins it was a big suprise but also a lot of work went into it, ask anyone who spoke to me around october..i was drained
anyways, heres just some doodles i want to post more really soon, cheers
yeah just some doodling
more experimental crap...ink and some other mixed media involved except for the pencil drawing i did on the train, eh.
Studies..trying desperately to understand a few things. the arm bones agin and the deep layer muscles that affect the back..bah
Tonights life drawing session
model was skinny and tall, pretty hard to draw i thought, or maybe its my lack of experience, heh
5-10 mins not sure
nice anatomy studies !!!!!
look I dont know why I love you I just do
wow these legstudies looks really interesting !!!!!
look I dont know why I love you I just do
You have been really productive lately, I specialy love the
female line studies, they look really hot
I just thought that you might want to add more variety to the shape
and expresion of you mouths, some times I fell they look to static and similar,
most of the times you do very thick and full kinda lips, you could experiment
more in that area and on the overal emotion range of you caracters
I tell you this cause I fell I have the same problem, (Im trying to do a bigger
range of expresions as of late, not that Im doing it all that good tho) other than
that keep the goods coming, I cant get enough of your cool drawing style

BIGGEST INSPIRATION EVER!
im 16 and I am now never gona let go of a pencil!! check out my recently created anatomy thread at cgtalk http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthre...32#post2952932
I dont have nearly as much stuff as you but im def gona just sketch like CrAzY!! and what college you wana go to?
thanks max for the thoughtful crit as always, thats something ill be looking into soon.
lol rblitz thats the spirit ull be kicking my ass in no time
im going to art school for a year under scholarship then the year after im probably gonna go to university.
heres just some experimental stuff
thanks dirty c that is the plan man
lol badger do the voices in my head count? thanks man..
anywho, im going to continue these regular studies of my hand in the hope that i am more confident in drawing them from the imagination, because its always a hazy area for me. Same with the arm bones i think the key to learning it is the way the forearm bones twist and lock into the joints of wrist and humerus, but i still find it tough...tomorow i plan to do some more studies but also some imagination to balance it out..
these are from some drawings by bammes.
these are purely from the mirror looking at my left hand, trying to apply what i learnt in bammes studies
