Good start, keep it coming.
Looks like you're illustrating some specific idea, like a game or a story?

Hey just joined SSG#6 yesterday so welcome... Nice movement in your figures, I like the falling dude the best, keep with it.
hey man, welcome to the newly pushed SSG6. I like your mechs, they look great. when you sketch i'd recommend going for lose strokes. Don't be afraid to make your drawing dirty, just draw & draw, at least dont be afraid if you're only sketching. More serious (pro!) work would require you to be more clean, so unless you're doing that, just lose yourself in the drawing. For inspiration, check out the artist list over at www.arc.org . Great stuff there, as well lots of artists to get your inspiration in! People even better than Hogarth. I'm not saying not to read and study Hogarth, but you should also train your eye by just observing the great master's paintings. Well, I'll be looking forward to see your progress, so keep on drawing!
One more thing, if you have Photoshop, please use the SAVE FOR WEB option... the images you're posting are VERY heavy for their size, so try using that instead of the normal save options.
I really like your "hardware" stuff. Also those thumbnail environments are good looking. You should maybe do more and more proper anatomy stuff. Good practise for everything.
Keep em' coming! Peace.
That was originally a colored texture photo someone gave away on the eatpoo forums I think. I haven't gotten around to take my own texture photos yet...
Okay, I compiled all of my concepts so far for Angels Fall First. The foundational knowledge isn't there yet so this is like my first stepping stone:
I finally started taking studio art classes! Intro drawing, life painting, and bargue drawing. Here are some life drawings for now in order of completion:
~2 hours, 9x12"
2 hours 18x24"
2 hours 18x24"

new one, this was my first assignment to depict energy and "urgency" in the still life so it got a semi-abstract treatment. We were told to go as fast as possible, and when the teacher saw me drawing leaves he wiped charcoal all over the paper haha. It was incredibly fun, but the knowledge from bargue drawing was set aside for most of this.
charcoal and eraser, 18x24" 2 hours
Started plugging away at bridgeman, felt good to do quick and dirty copies compared to bargue drawings
really nice studies and designs in here man. love the thumbnails like the last ones you did, and the fact that your doing a range of techniques and subjects.
keep it up and show some more!

Looks like you're going about things the right way - I'll give one tip about one aspect of your art that stuck out to me straght away:
keep your strokes long and elegant, don't feather lines in, practice using a long clean stroke to do something, and if you need to darken it, darken over the initial line and don't deviate from it.
Good luck, Darren.
the bargue drawing looks wonderful, keep it going!
.: drawing fundamentals 01 :.
Copies of figure drawings from "The Technique of Pencil Drawing" by Borough Johnson. It will be quite interesting how they'll compare to my own when I get the opportunity to draw from the model
Hey, the last sketch is very cool!
Its a big differnce between the left and right one (yeh right is best!!)
Your figure drawings are very well done and expressive, especially
last ones, and I see alot of improvement in your thread! so just keep it
Second bargue finished, still lots of imperfections that was mainly due to not using the plumb line at all the last 10 hours or so It was ridiculously hard because it was about 30% smaller than this photo:

beggining of the page not too good, but the rest is showing something
this one: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...FF-Plate-I.jpg
is my favourite, becouse it has smooth lines and shows the characters of every and each one of them... fantastic way of finding shapes isn't it
You have talent to draw simple, basis shapes in very good composition. It is great to have one
1 hour tree sketch
painted from my living room window, 2.5 hours in PS
Oil paint study for today. Used sight-size method, had lots of problems mixing the right colors
