Great last update. I like that drawing excercise...will have to put it to the test in my own sketchbook.
keep em coming, iv started to make paralel lines my self as well,
its a dam good excersie to get more control over you line work
keep on churning out the portraits dude, youv set with a very
good start, see ya in the next update!
P. S. make studies of the shapes of eyes, and try
to observe the model, with alot of care on that area,
if the model is to far away make, some SP and analize
up close the shape of your eyes, you still have this
almond shape trait on the eyes, of your portraits, ill sugesst
you to focus more on that area.
that is all, keep the stuides coming
Good start for the new year, Icey!
Your figure drawings and anatomy are both extremely good! Glad you got some stars finally! Let me add some for you...
Excellent sketchbook and great job, Icey! Going to subscribe and check back often!
Always visualize the eyes as a sphere on a cylinder the corners of the eyes should almost never be in a straight line even if you are looking at the face straight on ____ which you should try to avoid because it is the hardest position to give the illusion of dimension
There may be a couple of demos here that may help
things are letting them go and flow nicely in your art, keep on drawing ! dont stop now, draw alot !

Wow Icey those figure studies are amazing. I enjoyed looking through your sketch book all the work in here is great so far but the figure studies stand out to me they're form is awsome and the rendering is great. Good job. I look forward to more updates from you. Later
I really love that study of loomis. and your figure drawings are great!
It's one of those threads, where you notice after going through it ... you forgot to breathe.
Icey, your sketchbook and your attitude are pretty awesome !
I'm kinda tired right now, so I'll go right to the C&C ... I'd really love to see more quick studies from you, it's the best way IMHO to nail proportions and work out a lot of other anatomy problems. The ones you have in here are about the pics I like best (the perspective stuff too), because they are very much lively with great musculature.
You also seem (less in the last month) to have trouble with symmetry. Turn your page upside down and/or mirror it (hold it to a lightsource while looking at the backside) to check for symmetry.
I'm gonna check this one out quite regulary !
Awesome studies Icey,you shoul keep em looser though.
Quite prolific. Now I understand why you told me to post more. Lots of great studies. I'll see about posting more myself. I'm a little slow in drawing at the moment. Need to build up my poor athrophied art muscles.
Lovely works! You're an inspiration. Thank you!
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^
wow , great progress from the last time i checked your stuff.
The drawings from Jan 3rd, and 4th are myt favs,, special Jan4th,, woohooo
About the last update they are great. I like the half robo human thing the msot. I think there was a little prob with the first pose. its a really great pose, but i think, i did see some probs. I think it was problems....
well im not in a place to judge, but i just want to know wheather am rit or wrong, if wrong why?
so, i think, ur muscle drawing is excelent. um i thought maybe ur left leg is not in the right place, i jsut thought so..!!
and the torso, is alittle big, looks like a creature torso, or im still beginner, i dunno what does toroso will look like in this pose, and about the arm too, i think your humerous bone is out of place,,,,,well . I dont want to be mean, and i don like to draw stuff in other's drawing, its really rude. I just wanted to know how does this work.
great stuff man.
Keep it up!!
EDIT: I anaylsed your leg again, i think, its okay,, i cant figure out how will the left leg should be drwan.
I think u did the right thing, hehe!!

Consistently amazing studies, my friend. Keep them up!
He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.
Your work is coming along GREAT! Very impressive figurework. I see a really cool style developing there.
I definitely need to check back in more often! Way to go!
Thanks for replying to my thread, Icey. I'm 21, since you asked.
I really admire the amount of detail you are able to get in. I liked the viking and fantasy stuff too. Really I'm interested in drawing from imagination and not reference or life...so I hope you will post more of that.
(To answer your other question: Yes that is the best I can do. I've been working at drawing seriously for about 10 years now, and I've accomplished nothing. I really hate drawing.)
lovely work i find ..your studies kick ass !
Hi, Icey, long time no see
Looking great, though. You're getting there, don't worry. Stop bashing yourself, I did that and furstration overwhelmed me resulting in about 5 months without a drawing... Think positive, you've got talent. Can't wait to see some more
Great stuff!!! Really enjoyed looking through your sketchbook. I'll be looking out for your updates for sure. Keep it going!
I subscribed but somehow I never got update news AND forgot to check back!
Really awesome updates since January 14th!! Especially liked the girl all curled up. We've used some of the same references for our figures... yours turned out much better though, haha!
Really awesome work, I really admire you!
Keep em coming!
Your figure drawings are looking good, Icey. Your faces has some problems, though, as some of them are a bit flat and scewed. Try doing some scull and constructional studies, turn them around gradually to get used to the shapes. (Damn! I should do this myself!) Also, watch your shading. Remember to pull your strokes in the direction of the planes. Many of my own drawings have appeared terible scewed when all of the strokes was going in the same direction.
You are doing great!
Icey, checking your progress from your start to here is really inspiring. I love the portrait that looks like/is mother teresa. and all of your anatomy studies are amazing!
i really like this piece:
Really great work on the still life... reminds me of the guy that painted the melted pcoket watches handing from trees for some reason... can't think of his name, but either way it looks great.
Also, the image adevejian quoted looks awesome too! I really like that piece!
Looking forward to more,
I really like the perspective work. Many artists neglect perspective in favor of more figure drawing, which I think is a mistake. Both are equally important.
The good news is all your hard work and diligence will pay off, if you keep this up you will become an excellent artist. The tough news is - it takes thousands more drawings, and even more practice and hard work once you are "there" if you want to be great.
Keep it up! I can see your improvement!
Nice work, i can see a lot of improvements from first post !
I have to make some constructive crits, hope i'll help :
In some drawings, some errors come (maybe when you re tired, cause, in your best, they are not)
Short legged syndroma ( a hard one to kill, but pay attention very soon, it'll be easier)
Mouth doesnt follow the curvature of the under structure (ie , sometimes, guy is head down and turned, and mouth is like a face view)
Concerning the eyes, the shape is still to work, but some tip : dont contour the eye line. Top lid is almost always darker (cause light ource up), so make it bolder, and lower lid, there is like two lids : one light, one very slightly darker. Watch out, sometime, not under lid all the way round, maybe in one or two spots... Drawing is representation of nature, not copyng of nature...
Hope i helped; keep with the good works, really some good improvement here !
Your recent work looks very nice.
You understand many thins about muscles and overall anatomy but you need to work on how you put the pieces together. (talking about proportions and behavior of skin and muscles while bending and stretching...)
keep it up man
