Danny_K Thanks man
I had lil spare time so i had to finish it today - it's my PJ contest entry for this month the theme is StarWars.
I've been sick for the past few days...hope it's not swine flew... oink! oink!...
Anyways here is the pic...enjoy.
nice star wars piece! I love it! princess Lea cought cold too I hope it's not swine flu ^_^
Still problem with Values there is a lot going on and there is no emphasis on something particular which makes it all one big mush and it's harder to read.
if you squint you're eyes you will notice that everything in this piece has the same values pretty much and it's a shame because this is one awesome piece!
I think you can learn more from looking at this guys sketchbook, oh and also the light saber yoda is holding is opaque and the generals is transparent.
he is a pro who's been doing this for 15 years I think, notice how he does very busy and crazy drawings with pencil but it's still very easy to read because he follows composition,values, and emphasis and many other things you have to take in mind.
Hope it helps

I have no useful advice to offer, just wanted to say how much I enjoy coming back browsing your work.
Wicked, Sexy, Cute, Awesome, Creepy, you got it all right here I just looove going through your sketches so much coolness in one spot hehe.
Dude I can't wait until you finish the army and start kicking those digi's and stuff and start doing some serious studies, you will pawn in so many levels.
Stay alive and kickin' bro!
Thank you i use a 0.5 mech. pencil, when i was younger i wanted to be a comic book artist and liked the thin lines that this pencil can make, now i'm trying to get back to realistic art but i'm still loving this pencil.
awesome work! really nice piece it could use some value variety though and contrast, also put an emphasis on the main subject which is the knight piercing the ghoul, and secondary emphasis on the scared knight behind him.
I did an overpaint to demonstrate what I mean.
Oh and another thing what pencils are you using? you should have all range pencils from 6B which are the darkest and softest to H4 which is the lightest, this will help your value range.
good job bro!.

Thanks mate, i figured out myself that it should've had more contrast but i had to get back to my army stuff, so i had to post it, as it is.
I'm using a mech. pencil 0.5 just because i can make my pictures really detailed with it, i've got many kinds of pencils, i just like the mech. pencil cause i can carry it around where ever i want (base, field training, trains and etc....)
Anyway here are two more...
try buying a staedtler 0.7 with HB hodim I donno the word for it in english.
it's an super life long lasting mechanical pencil and the 0.7 gives you amazing detail but still covering a wider area, I'm doing most of my stuff with it, but I should and planning to move to pencil because that is the next level.
