thanks snake; i hope you don't think it's done though :?

Here's the WIP, it's not finished but i'm sick of working on it... not client work so it don't really matter rite?

might not post much tom i need a break

also, i was remembering something You was talking about like, some person who got really good in a year or so and they had some really beautiful stuff; like this horse made of clouds and this like pale doll face. i was just sittin there and i couldn't for the life of me remember the name; i wasn't into it at the time but i'd love to see it again; i started gettin pissed so i just drew the sketch below to vent a bit..

also, these multi limb studies are a great way to find out your weaknesses!

last thing is a thingy i'm workin on for arena, it's a creature i came up with as a kid. i think i have the notepad i drew it on back in like 2003! gotta dig around for it... nighty night peeps

hualalalala Suzanne is Awesome! so i quit on the other portrait, the lighting in the ref was just not great for study... this one was MUUUCH easier and took much less time and struggling. so remember, good refs make good practice! might upload some gestures or sth soon, i bee doin em with charcoal and they are way more fun that way :)

a 2 hr imagination portrait and a 2 hr screen study from rosemary's baby.
I tried applying the technique peter mohrbacher uses going first with grayscale and then using gradient passes in color layers to create a really limited pallete. It's really cool how you can get the entire spectrum of colors using grays and stuff; James gurney really breaks down that stuff well, also those Level Up! videos teaching me much much...
Will try to get those sketches up tom!
Also i notice when i upload things as JPEG files it compresses it or something and really raises the contrast. I downloaded one of my own pics and compared them side by side and they look quite a bit different.. does that happen to anyone else?

I guess i won't technically be a rookie anymore soon...

Deerbard: forgot to thank you in the last post for dropping by :)

today went pretty well, i figured out that PNG files really upgrades the quality of my pics so... i guess imagine every single one of my older pictures are 3x more clear and less... low quality? lawl

so today was pretty cool though lots of breakthroughs and applying stuff..
