You're being very productive, it's nice to see, keep it up!

Hmmm... your todo is eerily similar to mine. Except the draw is underlined a couple times and more saturation and hue shifts are combined under study colour.
You couldve slowed down more on the car studies, I agree with DIle that taking more time would help you retain more.
Also, why would you scribble on top of a drawing, write crap crap crap on it, and yet still upload it online? Some self-censorship wouldnt hurt.
Wow Justin, great work on that digital paint there. It's your best digital so far, I'd say.
The insomnia pics are nice too, you definately got some good likeness down on them.
I know this is futile, but try not to stress too much about how things are going to pan out. You've got more drive and talent than 99% of people your age, and even if all your plans don't work out at the time being, you will reach your goals on way or another. You aren't the kind of person to accept failure for even a moment, so don't fret too much if your to-do list seems intimidating. You're going to succeed one way or another, I'd bet my life on it. Goodluck Justin.
dude big props on your improvement since montreal. Slow down a bit and get some good finished works under your belt. Finish the master study too! Use the master study to really slow down and STUDY the picture! Look at stroke, value, concentrate on your edges etc. You know the drills. Not much to say that hasn't been said already by SirGreenSock and Dile.
uhm...stop getting better tho, you and dile are making me feel lazy.
Your heads and faces are really nice dude. That anatomy really pays off.
Your faces look really good! Also the last digital one. Really well done!
I'm with Magic Man here! That last one is screaming for some colouring, it has a lot of potential to make a really sweet comp. Damn you make me jealous - so young so good....
Thanks for stopping by my sb mate, really appreciate it!
ht e last one need some colors do you know me? ehehe this is a great concept,, i think some colors will give more impact to this drawing.
A great year to all of us my friend.
You've got some good work here. Really enjoying your concepts. Would love to see some more rendered work of yours. Keep at it.
My Sketchbook- C&C very welcome
like that last sketch. it has a lot of potential. fun to look at your sb. keep it comin.
Daaaaaayum, man! I see SO much progress since I last stopped here. So much work in such a short time! Man.....and all I've been doing is sitting here vegging. You've really encouraged me to kick it up a notch!
I hope it's okay if I don't reply directly to you guys, I will probably just post in your sketchbooks as a return =)
Unless you ask a really specific question.. but for the general things, I'll probably just say "thanks for the replies!"
But I do read them all, so don't think any single one of you goes unnoticed!
Hey Justin ,good progress. Your line art is improving. You really need to work on the tonal values, they seem hurried and there isn't much depth. I think that you should try to spend more time on some pieces, becuase they end up looking sloppy with the quick tonal work.
Also, the turn around of the leg study doesn't line up, if your doing a ortho. view that's the most important thing.
lewmis!! Thanks for reminding me, gotta get back into my anatomy studies again.
Quick tip for the hand studies: Consider overlap and the palm itself a bit more. Youre getting good form with the fingers and thumb, but the palm looks like a stiff flat board with protruding fingers. Always try to put the curving of the palm into consideration, as well as its own fleshy masses. On the larger hand study for example you'd expect to see more of the fleshy mass/skin between the thumb and knuckle of index finger, as well as the origins of the fingers themselves. They appear to be more on the same level, I think the index and pinky ought to be positioned a bit lower to get the sense of the turning palm.
Justin- ya have some really nice figure studies!!! Kudos!!!
Hey Justin Thanks for dropping by my SB.
I like all the energy going into your drawings. You're working hard and it shows. These are nice pencils in post # 160. Good treatment of the features.
Keep with the anatomy and Loomis!

First off, thank you for starting a sketchbook, i learned so much just by reading the comments that others have left.
I wont do and comment on technique,style, or anything else that is far far above my head. I will however point out that you have been working very very hard faithfully searching for that one something that you can call your own. I have seen some improvement myself your noses all looked that same on page one and two, now none of them do. Same with your initial faces... Blind contours? What's that. I have some sort of understanding of that now that i have read and seen 100% of your sketchbook.
I wonder where we all will be in 2008? adieu
Transition from Art Critic to Artiste - Diligence, that's all I need.
