Yeah, I think it'd be okay for you to step away from the anatomy constructions and move onto something else, since you've gotten a really great handle on them. I feel like I need to go back and review some anatomy after looking at yours, actually!
MrFrenik-thanks man,I am a bit off an anatomy freak,definetly need to work on other stuff though.
Ill reply to all other comments later as the forums a bit glitchy right now.
Jarrad-thank man,i am working hard on trying to fix my value problem,its especially obvious when I use pencils.
Joe777k7-thank as always mate,might wanna google linrans tutorial he has some great pointers on where to start,also ctrl paint has great videos but you probably know already.
ceddo's -thanks dude,Ill try that definitely.
ecki-yeah expressions are tricky dont know the muscles of the face but I will give it a go.

thank man,I know I need to variate more so I am working on doing other stuff too.
here is two more studies which didnt upload in the post before last.
Hey GreyPersona, thanks for all the help you have given on my SB!
Your stuff is looking great! =] Pretty solid.
The last study you posted, it feels rather flat.
Really looking forward to more of your stuff. =]
It's not who I am underneath, but what I DO that defines me
i don't know what your process is with painting life studies, but try using the thinking process that you might have used for those perspective car studies or even the figures.
the key is thinking in 3d. after that, figuring out its lighting will be a snap.
V3T-thank mate,that study does look very flat.
a la bapsi-Will do sir!,seeing structure from life is hard for me though.
phoenicorn-thank you very much for the feauture,I sent you a pm .
and I do need to start do more creative things.
*I need to start implementing what you guys say in the comments cause this shit looks the same*
self portrait,still life,construction.

Hey man, great studies as usual!! The construction on that jeep looks super solid, and the portrait as well. Basically, I think you have by far reached a level where you should start having fun with your skills. You've trained a long time to get up to this level academically, but the real value of an artist is the generation of ideas.
Just like a writer must learn proper grammar and style, artists must learn how to communicate things visually. But the real value is in what is said! So I think it's equally important for you to start finding out what you, as a person, want to bring out in the world.
I might be totally off on a tangent here - I hope I at least have made some sense
I think its lack of inspiration,I have the tenacity to sit my ass down and study but I forgot a bit why I like drawing in the first place. and drawing 10 hours a day
with little social life doesnt exactly remind me why or fill the wind in the sails of my muses.
I need to do more interesting shit outside of drawing!
*sorry for the disjointed writing style.

Right, thats it, time for some anatomy studies.
Really great grasp of the figure. Whats your next step? Facial expressions?
great stuff in here! seems like you´ve found a great recipe for improvement!
basic shapes, studies and construction (Y)
maybe i´d add more stuff from mind to that mix as well, keep the creative side of it flowing. as well as test yourself of how much you learn from the studies and so on.
Your construction and rendering are looking really good but, as been said, don't forget why you started drawing in the first place. "all work and no play makes jack a dull boy" . Have a little fun. Try reading, movies, museums, drawing more outside, or doing random doodles on a newspaper as a source of inspiration.
I know these feeling all too well, too much study can drain the creativity out of you sometimes.
Big difference between those last two still lifes, the structure is much better in the more recent one. If you wait for inspiration you'll never get anything done... the studies make it easier to be creative, sometimes it doesn't feel that way though
i was just looking at your work from the first page, great updates man.
Flaskpost-yeah I am gonna change my work schedule to fit more creative stuff.
MrFrenik-creativity is a sketchy subject,I think that everyone is creative in their core of cores but only few people
can tap into that place of being truly original,also a lot of creativity is down to being an interesting person,and you cant teach that.
JDBI-thank man will do.
Kvetch-thank so much mate,I think in the long run studying does help.
*a couple of wips of photo studies,the drawing sucks on these but I was suprised that I didnt do worse in the color department(although they dont match the photos that much).
your shapes look pretty believable in space. what do you advise on how to go about studying perspective?
criticism and motivation are more than welcomed
I've started to notice it is like MrFrenik says, it is a skill that can be learnt through alot of hard work! You got to hit up that feng zhu video on the visual library studies. Im noticing one of the most important things is improving your visual library and learning the anatomy of everything. Sometimes there are days i dont even draw because im learning all the parts of a tractor then the next day it becomes so easy to draw them then make my own. I spend the whole day filling up pages in my sketchbook of just notes. Become a student of this world. The more you know about this world the better a designer you will be! Keep Pushing it!!! Looking forward to seeing more!
Great stuff! Your forms read pretty well and your understanding of anatomy is great. The perspective studies look really great too : ) Keep rocking
http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...oy-called-Papu <-- Sketchbook :=)
yeah. man. nice progression. feel quite similar about creativity and innovation, but also think that the arguments here are quite rigth. you can't be creative before knowing your tools, but just sitting down kickin some studies out is never wrong =)
also totally agree with the library idea.
keep it up. nice brushstrokes and rendering btw.
Great looking stuff dude! I love your proportion studies and your digital painting looks really nice (: I'd try working with a bit more colour now, though I really love your proportion things! Maybe size some of them up and go over them in Photoshop? I think that would be fun :B Subscribing!
That last metal study... Dang bro.
It's not who I am underneath, but what I DO that defines me
super inspiring i love your buttery brush strokes and your recent human designs :> it's very cool to see the stuff you put out. keep it up!~
take a peek at my SKETCHBOOK?
die angehemen Ungeheuer
you can start to do some compositions. with diffrent types of scenes...
.and maby start to do some forms from your imaginations...
.great work of perspective lessons
Nice armour study. I saw someone do an interesting design exercise, I think it was in csear's sketchbook, basically taking everyday objects and breaking them down into major shapes, then recombining those shapes to make things. E.g take a toothbrush, a mug handle and a lampshade and using your mad l33t perspective skillz, combine those shapes into a truck or spaceship design or whatever.
