Helioth: I'll work harder!
Mischeviouslittleelf: thanks man, your brushwork is amazing, I'll try to update with more than just the daily SP's!
mc2mc2: will do!
sorry about breaking my daily updates...will continue now!
figure ref'd and studies:
studies (made the waist a bit too thin on the muscle study):
quick sketches from life...trying out a new brush tip marker
Kronos: thanks dude!
kingkostas: thank you
er...slacked a bit again today...will be going to life drawing tomorrow, so will post more for sure!
I tried digital screen tones...as you can see...I don't know how to do it properly lol...probably should have read a tutorial or something first...would really love some pointers on how to do this correctly
nice life studies...what reference do you use?

Hey, those two sp's are looking pretty good, dig the anatomy and wrinkle studies too.
I don't think there's really a specific "right" way to go about things digitally.
There are thousands of ways to achieve similar results, I guess just go with what feels natural and efficient to you.
Hey dude, that last pencil SP looks pretty good.
Some of the best reference i've found to study is slow motion/freeze frames of athletes in motion (runners, boxers, gymnastics, aerobics, bruce lee movies etc..) the amount of distortion that goes on can surprise ya sometimes to the point that it destroys that basic shapes theory that shitty "how to draw books" love to use religiously, heh!
Make sure you utilize reference fully too, freeze frame an image of ,for example, a boxer mashing some poor dudes head in, study and draw it till you can remember key elements then apply it to a drawing from imagination.
You really have to be observant and hard on yourself to benefit from it or else your missing the point of doing them, that believability that makes that still frame work is what you want to aim for with your improvised sketches.
Ok enough of the Yoda shit, see ya at life drawing mate
Manga studio have a very nice collection of half tone etc.Huge collection
But i think you can download some similar patterns for photoshop to load them in the fill tool(just change the foreground to pattern and select your halftone patterns)
But i wanna see more pencils
Bigtayter: thanks man, do you mean the anatomy studies or the girl wearing a leather dress?
Helioth: yeah you're right, i just figured screen tones should be applied quite quickly, the amount of time it took me to get to that result kind of defeats the purpose i reckon...
Rusty: thank you so much man...I'll definitely try and remember your advice, more yoda shit please !!!
kingkostas: thanks for that man! I appreciate it!
doodling from life with a new brush pen:
Bought a Wolff Carbon Pencil today, these pencils are amazing! they cover the value range of charcoal, yet have the durability of pencils...life drawing with these are so fun! kinda messed around in the beginning though, tried to figure out a good technique to use them. try them out if you can find them!
Well, haven't you been busy.
Enjoyed looking at the form and loose lines.
Lovin the studies at the top of the page bro, and the last batch of life drawings are looking sweet.
Self portrait's are going good as well, but they all kinda look the same. I know that's retarded as its you and it's not as if you have plastic surgery every day, but just draw them in different lights and different poses.
P.S oh and where do you go for life drawing?
Again I love the energy of this thread,
keep it up
hey thanks for dropping by my sketchbook! nice life studies, good Self Portraits to.

kingkostas: thanks man! I'll keep working hard!
Helioth: thanks for stopping by!
Cavematty: cheers man, will keep up the daily updates!
JailHouseRock2:yeah i know what you mean...I'll keep that in mind, thanks man! Left you a reply in your SB about life drawing...
Bigtayter: thank you
Wip for the new Teen Challenge, the topic is to do an illustration based on the title of a song...I painted something while listening to "You never wash up after yourself" by Radiohead on repeat haha...will keep working on this...I think I'll add more to the composition to the left...canvas looks a bit too square atm...

Dude, I see HUGE development in these last few posts.
Keep it up :o
Keep using those pens...those look really awesome...same with the marker sketches.
I don't know much about digital screentones, but I'd think that using smaller dots would help...they're kind of overpowering at that size, I think.
Loving the carbon pencil figure studies too...So I've heard of those things but never tried them. They look like a blast though! I'll look into them!
The SPs look phenomenal. Huge development!
You make me want to work more!
kingkostas: haha thanks man!
bumskee: thanks for stopping by min! I appreciate the support
Joey-b: thanks dude!
Helioth: thanks for the support
sketcheth: haha you know its the opposite man, you sb kicks my ass everytime i check
urgh sorry guys, I slacked off again, will scan some figure studies tomorrow...
not much change on this I know...funny enough deciding on where to place the spiderwebs is a tough job composition wise...
A portrait I started on today for my grandmother....about 1hr 20mins ish into it so far...a bad photo sorry! Should be able to finish in another sitting...crits appreciated!
Nice !!!.In the first i feel somehow strange about the head???I cant imagine its boundaries.
Nice pencil in your grandma
Man this last is really interesting!!!haha really nice
Keep up !!!
I think... finding a balance between your 'cleaner' drawings and less controlled charcoal style will be good for you.
Don't let the medium dictate that much?
thx for stopping by my sketchbook and for your detailed feedback!
I really like your new self portrait series. Keep it up!
your work is great just keep on posting.
I ask for more
Now isn't that cute ....
BUT ITS WRONG!!!
kingkostas: thanks man, yeah i intended it for the figure to be in shadow...might work on it a bit so it looks less wonky, cheers!
Joey-b:hey you did! really nice man, i cant believe you did that 2 years ago great stuff!
krossj: thanks man!
Helioth: yeah i kinda haven't found a personal style I'm comfortable with yet so its mostly experimentation atm
xobgob: here's some more thanks for dropping by!
some studies...(note to self...wolff carbon pencils dont go on graphite...)
working on my lines...so bad...(bad scan sorry)
SP...working on the edgeeeesssss
Hah, you look baked (stoned) in your last portrait ^-^
Endure the confusion!
Don't just say "that's my style", as you rightly do not at the moment... after a couple of years either! Keep evolving yo
