Post Bridgman...

After ripping through Bridgman's Complete Guide To Drawing From Life I had to test run it on something. And sure enough, huge improvement.
At first I tried to draw an old man in front of me but he kept moving. So I found a picture of the hulk done by one of my favorite artists and tried to see how I could apply Bridgman's technique to it, and create my own. Instead of thinking about the image as pure lines and making the perfect line, I had to see the figure as a 3d object in space. Breaking down the figure into smaller masses that interact with each other.

Massive sketch dump!

It's a mixture of some raw studying on Bridgman's Complete Guide and some of my friends doodling with me.

still going!

My sweet little drawing addiction is now being used on Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life. So far I'm digging it. I like his simplistic way of breaking down the human form and his loose drawing make you comfortable making your own loose drawings.

Also felt like I'd share the current working link for the PDF.  .

some line work for some ahri fan art.

Rendered it a bit, still deciding on the clothing and shizzz.

more painting practice!

I've been practicing my rendering on skulls. Using for references is amazing. There is no end of material to use for reference or inspiration.

After messing with opacity and flow settings for hours, I think I finally found a few settings which agreed with me. As for my color picking skills, those still need work. I've bee trying to really understand colors by first guessing, then using the eyedrop tool to see how close I was. Then I try to look for the difference between the two, be it a color or level of saturation.

Also, I've been plowing through my latest sketchbook. I'll probably throw up some sketches worthy of sharing later today.
