Hi Lugh! The perspective studies are great - nice heads too. Keep working out those proportion issues, looking good!

Lugh i am digging your last two posts. On the last update is that suppose to be a tube? if so it needs work, the ellipse is pinched and your axis is doing something a little funky. If you want to get good at drawing ellipses and circles in perspective first get good at drawing squares and boxes in perspective. If you can draw a cube correctly soon you will be able to draw everything else a lot better in perspective. keep working.
Neat stuff going on here. Keep working on perspective (I suck at that *lol*) and do those studies. Even if it's 5 mins studies from books, movies, photos, or whatever you find on the net, Bridgeman, Loomis.... It pays off. Just use 5-10-15 mins... Whatever you do, it pays

Did a quick sketch of a bot with a rocket thing coming out of his ass. Annnnd I'll post up some vehicle sketches later.
I have no clue what the robot is suppose to do, I should've put more thought into it....

I love those toned sketchbooks that everyone but me has. I'd like to see you do more anatomy work. I suggest downloading a drawing torrent with tons of anatomy books. thats what i maybe did. hahaha

Mr.Delicious: Your not the only one . Yes indeed, I need to do studies and start drawing more... I don't know what is with me, I keep procrastinating on it. This weekend is going to change all that though... Plus I can't let J.Macs, and others advices go to waste.
A quick update on that sketch, decided to work with color a bit, I dont have a hang of it yet though... sort of a wip.

Hey cole. Nice round of life studies there, and your sketches are looking better. some thing that I found helpful when trying to develop more confident lines was just drawing those pages of straight lines, my linework still isn't that great, but I feel a lot more confident when doing them, and i don't take nearly as much time planning where they should go. Give it a try. Also, I know I told you on yahoo, but I think you should sit down and try a round of long, involved still lives, and anatomical studies including basic human proportions.
Sep: Thanks for the advice man.
A bladerunner study. I'm not finished with it. I didnt do any measurements which was a big problem, and 'm trying to get rid of this cartoon like style I have. Anyway crits and comments welcome as usual. Since I didnt use measurements or analyze things as much I guess it's more of an impression, than a copy.

I've been practicing. This is th eonly thing that has come from that so far. It was experiment to help get use to the brushes, and how everything worked.

Hey good to see you still working. For the Blade Runner copy try using big shapes of value to block in your space you have a lot of dark value in the background and if you can get the shape of that correct you will have a much easier time with the figure/foreground.
Try to go from Large shapes to Small shapes & Simple to Complex. You follow this and your life will become much easier. Good luck
A WIP for a school project. I looked at it on another monitor, and I think mine needs to be calibrated better. This ended up being too desaturated. I havent flipped the picture yet, but it does seem like the proportions are wrong.
The subject is Frankensteins Monster, but it's my own design. I'm gonna take that shirt off of him, and probably put him in something more formal. Crits and comments appreciated.

Alright this is still a work in progress. I would really like some feed back. I'll make sure to stop by your sketchbook as well. Anyway, here he is so far, Frankensteings Monster.
Ok I'm back. I've been busy, and sort of in a slump. I'm getting back into drawing and finally keeping a sketchbook. Here's something to gaze at.
The reality of graduating is looming over me a bit. I honestly dont feel I'm ready, but I got to push it anyway. So here is a rough draft of my demo reel box design. More to come.
Hey dude, what's up? Good to see you posting a bit again, sorry I haven't kept up more with you sb. Your demo reel box is looking good, but I'd take a few more minutes to come up with a bit more of a cohesive layout. The layout you have is fairly random looking, but of course it's just a rough draft and I'm sure it's going to go through a dozen iterations before you settle on something. Keep at it man, the push is almost over.
I went to a life drawing session today to see where my skills were since I've neglected them for so long. As expected I didnt like the result.
Deffinetly more to come, this is bugging me too much. I got to step away the rigging and laying out UVs for a while anyway.
Hey, thanks for the comment!
Good stuff you got here. The lifedrawings are nice, but i you don't make em as interesting as you possibly, and easily could by adding a few more lines.. Dark lines to define them a little more!
Keep it up!
Woah dude, wheeeeeereee did you get that fantastic tinted spiral sketchbook? I want one!
Harrisson's got a bigger forehead than you gave him. Also, his eyeline goes in a straight line, you drew it at kind of an angle. You could have developed that pretty well if you worked longer on it!! Keep going, youre making progress!
