    The pose seems a bit flat. A good exercise I got out of "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" is to turn the reference upside down and just draw what you see. This supposedly frees up the mind from seeing a face or a body, for example, and just seeing the reference as related dark and light areas (ie- not thinking to draw a prejudged form like a face). It works best with black and white photos.

    Anyhow, keep on keepin' on.
    thanks. I agree that the pose seems flat. I will try that exercise.

    I am making progress, but it's slow slow slow. Thanks for looking and commenting.

    Were you aiming to have this represent the photo? Or a charicature or an abstraction?

    It may be hard for others to give crits without knowing which direction you were aiming for.
    I wish I saved the photo for reference. I got it off a random image site, so I'll never get it back, NOTE TO SELF... bookmark.
    Really, I am going for a cartoony feel. Not an exactly, realistic, or comic book intertretation.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    heh, no worries. I really didn't understand where your crit was coming from. The internet is funny that way. I do appreciate you taking the time to look. I was also a little snipish.

    I really just couldn't tell if the wow, was that's great, or wow, you suck monkeys dude.

    No harm, no foul,

    not sure what to take from your comments. I know that I am not the strongest artist on these boards, but I am working hard at getting better.

    I most certainly don't put this up as a joke. I also have no interest in drawing the marvel way. I am more interested in cartooning.
