huge improvements i'm seeing my man.
I love the loose drawings from post #455 - especially the star-hand thingy. So cool. Everything looks like it's getting better. Good for you man- keep it up!
Damn, I can't believe how I looked over this thread. It's been a long time,
since Praha I hope you had a blast on the rest of the european trip.
And the sketchbook is looking good. You sure are productive.
I 'm seeing improvements since the beginning, that's nice.
Like the 'pissarro' piece as well . Good use of hard and soft strokes.
Although your value control is still up for improvement.
Keep up the good work man
I have no doubt you'll be going places.

a oil piece based on that star hand ill post how that going
kingcoyote: Right back at you man, da love is mutual,

to give ya some criticing har har!!
rodrigo!: Hey good to see your update, and yeah Ill try to
make better legs for this beasty of mine, I dont wanna erase
much cause the paper is not very good quality wise,
but I havent pushed the pencil to hard on those areas so
I still can make some changes

nice set of images. that last one is probably the best,but i really like the whole "shot" of your family aswell.
scarlett johansson looks sweet aswell.
eh...yeah,can't add much more right now,i'm too tired still to give any good critiques,and i assume you know the faults yourself.
great gestures man, really energetic. be careful not to outline the eyes or other things too much and try to be subtle as well as loose,
use of marker really adds to it as well, nice!
love the portrait man, great stuff. the hair and the eyes are awesome, keep it up! i suppoose in terms of likeness thats your call, but in terms of just a head on its own it looks pretty solid. the only thing i didnt like was that faint line running across the right side of the face, it looks out of place on the light side of the face. only a small thing, but its all i can say haha.
rodrigo!: hey man thanks for the props on the portrait, and
yeah it got a little smudged and bashed casue I erased too much
so some underlaying stuff was to deep on the paper to be erased
like that line your wrote about, and about the line work yeah
beeing both energetic and subtle is proving to be quite the
challenge, but ill get there soon enougth, again man, thanks
for stoping around!!
Carnifex: thanks a lot and yeah the last one is my fave as well
I need to sleep too man, he he, keep it UP and keep those studies
up man Im always cheered up when I see ya posted!!
thanks for the props on the portait as well man I need to do more

liam.c: Like wise my friend, you are constant inspiration for me, and a
constant reminder of how important excersizing the imagination is
Im really likeing your lastest experiments, ill cach up with you sooner
that you imagine
About the movie, well It was really good, but I can imagine that
some fans will dislike some parts of the plot, even so I think
is more than worth the ticket, let me know if you liked it or
hated it he, he
Nii: Worry not, ill keep pluging the studies away!!
Ok master study of Jean-Léon Gérôme, say 6 hours of work on oils
Holy shit luis!!! Fuck! you're starting to scare me my friend, slow down and let me catch up will you?? Good work on the portraits, you're really getting good at those!
This one blew my mind. There's something about your lines that i just love.
Thanks for being a huge inspiration!
Slash: I thank you back my friend!! as you are a big inspiration to me
as well, I love your desings, and I envy your 3D modeling skills,
(I need to start training my self on maya!!) and thanks for the
props on the lines, as I discovered that I really like inking and
line work, I used to hate them, and now Im beging to enjoy them,
Ah, our journey is weird one he he.
Ok in that spirit heres todays lines
Some non refered doodles, I did em while
waching the TV and some of the faces are
inspired on the fellas I wached as I swiched the
chanels, real good practice to increaste
the library of faces!
MattGamer: hey Iv have looked your skb more than once

same with me, i can't draw worth anything some days. it sucks. though some days i feel like i can draw like the bestest pro... haha but find i cant.
i like the black dude. . i find it hard to draw black dudes sometimes. and i like the pretty horsie too. hot girl alert!! haha
Wow you just keep banging out these updates, great work!! The oil painting is fantastic. All these updates are great but my favorite is the Scarlett drawing, it's just such a good drawing!(the likeness is a bit off) but I love it so much.
uff, blown away by this awesome sketchbook! thanks so much for your advice in my humble book, much appreciated. love the gerome-study,
and those may 20th hand studies are just amazing. thanks for the inspiration boost! cheers,
SoFA members belong on top

The Gerôme study is looking good! One of my favourite pictures from Gerôme...
You gonna take it further? I think some areas look a bit rough... and dark... Like the silk shirt he's wearing.. go in there and smooth out the wrinkles and stuff.. you know..
The contour sketches are beautiful, and the characters are awesome too. Love the new stuff!
Oh sheesh nine pages already? I've got to get working!
MattGamer: Yeah getting the enicity right is real hard
the only thing that surpase it is drawing hot chicks

Ham-e: Yeah likeness is a bich, I wasnt able to feel it rigth
on the begining but I still kept drawing just to see if I would
be able to pull it off in the end, but I wasnt, still it was
a good value control excersisce, thanks for droping around!!
stine: Hey np, your sketch book gave me loads of inspiration,
Im the one humbled man, kick ass work overthere!!
dCepT: Im dont know if ill take it futher, I will do a full copy
