aimeemcfarlane: Thank you, although I don't seem to have much of a choice. I don't progress much if I draw and paint sparingly, so it's essential that I do my studies every day.
R a n d i s: Thanks, I certainly hope so Thanks for checking out my work as well, I'm a huge fan of your illustrations so I'm quite honored.
NickyBeats: Thank you! I'm having a blast with the stylized faces, it's a lot of fun for me, and I'm definitely going to be experimenting more in this style in the future.
Giorge: Appreciate it
Sycra: Thank you, I'll keep at it
Eddieee: Thanks! I'm having a lot of success with his method, everything just 'clicked' for me this week in regards to constructing the head. I still have a lot of trouble with the more extreme angles, but I hope to get better with that in time.
clifFroth: Thanks. You have a point in regards to the flame haired woman as well, it seems that I have two strong focal points in the image, which probably wasn't a good idea. Thanks for your honesty.
Izer: Thank you, those were a blast to create so I'm glad ya dig
vatteh: Thanks, much appreciated
Today was a struggle to keep up my studies - I woke up with an ear infection and a cold, so I honestly wasn't much of a mood to draw/paint, but I just forced myself to do so (for better or worse). It's hard for me to do my work without music in the background, but what can ya do....
And for today's updates, I continued my head studies (all from imagination using Loomis' approach), did some perspective studies, some figure drawing from Loomis, and finally, some 45 second PoseManiacs studies.
I'm having a lot of problems conveying action and form from imagination, so I definitely have to work on that. I think doing some more perspective studies will help give my figures a greater sense of weight, so tomorrow I'll do more studies in that regard.
And that's all for now. Any feedback is greatly appreciated as always. I'll post again tomorrow, hopefully I'll be a bit more healthy - doing these studies while sick is a pain in the arse I tell ya!
