And another 'in progress' ;-)
Some more doodling...
Random doodle, need to decide what type of charcter he has?...
hi RandAlThor from what i have seen of your sketch book it looks really good, your value studys look very well done.
with the comment you left on my sketch book would you mind explaining in more detail? (as i am not too sure what you mean)
Nrx: Thanks man, i'll keep trying better ;-)
Lyno: Happy New Year, Im not to bad ta. Works been a bitch tho. But i should be back around here more often now. Saw your sb too, your coming along in leaps and bounds ;-)
Glass: Thanks for dropping by. I'll post again to explain that line weight / light thing.
Another digi doodle... :-)
And a random green thing.. with no body ;-)
And another 'in progress'...
More practicing. I think i managed to figure out the flow tool..
Reffed from posemaniacs, sight sized and guessed at tones. 2hr.
Still avoiding those details ;-)
Something from the xmas break...
And Another... This reminds me of something in a dream once ;-)
Im gonna try for translucent wing things on this one...
And a messed up bird ref...
Scarecrows are always cool ;-)
Hey, it looks like you've improved since I last looked in here. You cranking out the stuff from your imagination is inspiring. Good work with the studies too.
The transparent wings WIP dude is looking cool. Be sure to post it when you're done, I wanna see it.
Keep it up.
Hey RandAI thanks for your advice ... I guess you're right on the specular I am just trying to not let it seem too wet/greasy, you now what I mean? On the ohter hand a little exaggeration probably makes it even look more realistic ... I'll give it a try
Pretty cool stuff in here, too, many different approaches ... The bird rocks, let us see more of your finalized stuff

Visit my sketchbook-gallery kinda thing ...
Swamp: cheers fella, i will finish soon ;-)
Lord R: Thanks for popping in. I'll try harder this year to actually finish something, but in the meantime...
Damn hard addressing my lack of figure knowledge, lets see if posemaniacs will help ;-)
Always seems to draw nose too long, so i tried shortening one, do you think it worked?
Looking awesome in here! I do the same thing with noses It's like I add 2 inches to the nose bone everytime. Great progress in here - digging the pose maniacs works! (I need to get my butt back over there and get back to practicing! You've got some great sketches in here (liking the animals and beasts!) - keep up the hard work and keep em coming!

Met: thanks for dropping in, i'll try to keep em coming ;-)
Bit more PM fun...
Some awesome stuff here man, I really like the "shard of a sculpture" idea, I may have to use that. seems like a great way to practice all kinds of things without the pressure of the rest of the face looming over you.
Note on the nose-shortening: The second one is better, but the overall face is thrown off by the ears, they're both too long and too low (because theyre in the same place as the first one), so dont forget to check ALL the proportions when you alter something on a face, or it could throw off the whole character of the... well, character. =)
Crits, Advice, and Feedback always appreciated.

Hey man. Cool stuff. Keep up the hard work!
I see ur having a bit of trouble with ur face proportions. I stole this pic of the "Average female face of attractiveness" off the net and drew proportions over the top.
Eyes are halfway down. Both your heads have the eyes too high. I think this is the main reason that your noses look long, and no amount of reworking the nose will fix this as it will still be too big for the face. The Significant features are all below the eyes, compared with the sparesely detailed forehead and hair. Because of the importance and level of information of the features they always mentally seem bigger than they are, but trust to this measurement, even if it doesnt feel right when you first start drawing it.
Brows sit a bit above the eyes. Just gotta feel that one out. It varies a little. I don't know a measure for it, but its less than an eye width up.
Bottom of the nose is halfway from the brows to the chin. Not from the eyes to the chin. Common mistake. Bear in mind the lower surface of the nose wedge slopes up, meaning the tip is a bit higher than this. If you draw the tip in first, then add this lower surface, your nose is suddenly too long.
Bottom of the lower lip is halfway from the bottom of the nose to the chin.
Not the split of the mouth. The bottom of the lower lip. The chin is bigger than you think just like the forehead. The shadow of the lip helps to break it up and make it seem smaller.
Ears generally line up with the brows at the top, and the bottom of the nose at the bottom. The placement of the ears is the way our mind reads what fwd/back tilt the head has. If you get it wrong the face will look out of perspective.
You've got a pretty good handle on the rest, I think once you get the eyes halfway down your heads will improve straight away.
Hope that helps.
those are awesome feet!
i am jealous
Cool stuff! =)
I like that you're branching out so much! There's a lot of variety in your work
Keep up the studies!
you are getting real good at anatomy.. your faces could be better if you give the pupil+upper eyelid, nostrils and corners of mouth more dark value then the rest. almost always those parts seem to have an accent in value...i think when you do them from life/photoref youll find taht out yourself
