Woah, awesome, you are doing the same kind of studies I'm gonna be doing shortly! :) I'm doing the Dynamic Sketching series at Draw a Box, currently stuck at the plants. That bug looks pretty awesome. I like the idea of focusing our attention on a particular point by drawing a circle on the drawing. I had a tendency to add detail everywhere and make things visually cluttered, this fixes that.

Hey Mecha: the circle is actually a critical part, as you will see in the lecture. thanks for the kind words.

Here is the assignment for week 6, study of Bouguereau's "Dante and Virgil in Hell". I love that piece. Creature design, perfect anatomy, strong story, great comp, it has it all. It took some time to get it to this level and I still see mistakes, but I want to get to the next thing.

The other thing is an illustration I did for myself. C and C very welcome.

doing some portrait work and block-ins. And I worked some more on my hero-picture. Feeling a bit weird about it, but a friend asked me to do it, so I guess it is okay to paint something that looks so glorified.

Hey Flo, I'm still reading this! Any thread can be brought back to life with consistent updates. :-) Nice figure drawing studies. Hampton's techniques look awesome! There's a very nice sense of energy in all this.

Was that girl in the SB page from life or imagination?
