    So.. dude ... Given your most recent work, and your GREAT attitude I decided to swing by and give your blog a look, and .... DUDE your work has some serious energy, I am envious really. I love yourgestures and how your figures flow. Now, with that being said you have a couple of things that you do often that I wanted to address. So I picked this piece to show them

    1) you need to fully plan out your layout before you start to throw in your details. You said it yourself with this piece, and there is no mistaking how important it is. I have a piece that I must have redrawn one character 30 times before I was satisfied with it, and that he fit in the frame.

    2) if you have to crop a figure do every thing you can to avoid cropping it oat a joint. I have NO idea why, but as you can see in this pic it gives the impression that your figure is anchored in the frame, and costs you loads of figure energy.

    Now these are two things that you can change fairly easily and quickly. I want to give your blog another once over because I am sure there was more, but for now just know that you have a new fan, and keep drawing.

    P.S if you check out my blog sometime you will see I got almost all of the same advice at one point. Cheers.

      thanks spidey! it's really appreciated! i've been slugging away for the past few months trying to draw something (anything!) everyday and i'm really starting to see myself improve, but some days i won't be able to put an idea down on paper and i'll feel like i'm a talentless idiot and it's at times like that when coming on here really gives me a great confidence boost to just keep at it and its thanks to people like yourself and your attitude that make it worthwhile! thanks again! on my way to check out your blog now!

        Keep up the enthusiasm. It translates well and it looks like you have fun. If there is one weakness that really sticks out in your work, it's the way you draw the left leg while it's bent or lifted. I think you are trying to solve it because you keep drawing it.



        Study some photos if it helps. Anyhoo, I dug your Cyclops so much I started inking it in sketchbook pro.



        Should of asked you first but it was a spur of the moment bit of digital inking.

          dri - thanks for the encouragement! i feel incredibly proud that someone wanted to ink my drawing! feel free (this goes to everyone) to ink or colour anything i post i only ask that you tell me about and let me see it! and can i just say that the piece you threw over my work is fantastic! the effect you have for the optic blast is exactly how i imagined it only i didn't have the time to get that detailed! you're right about my problems with that leg position! it's a gap in my knowledge that i spotted awhile back and i've been trying to fix! thank you for taking the time to notice!

              You are for sure improving, and as for those difficult days when it feels like you have forgotten how to draw... Well we all have those. Just keep drawing and you will keep improving and moving your skill and style closer to what you see in your imagination.

              P.S. damn auto correct has messed up these posts.... Fixed now.... I think...lol

                        I really like the way this turned out, if it was colored with background, it'd be a great printout piece to buy at a con. I liked the Magneto you posted, that Spiderman is cool too!

                              I love the Spiderman!! Thanks for the links on my thread, that is some fast figure and nice details on the videos. Add a background to spiderman and I believe it can be a complete print for you to sell haha. Great job!

                              P.S.
                              I tried the website with the 30minute interval last night and today to begin. First they start you off with 30 second poses, which is wierd because I was just trying to capture movement but on paper, it looks like I shouldn't even be drawing! After the 30 second poses, it moves you into 1 minute poses, then 5minutes and 1 final 11minute pose. If you have time to try it, let me know if that is something you recommend me keep on trying until i find life drawing sessions. I'm going to try the 1 hour interval and let you know how that goes.

                                some more sketches! i've gotten into the habit of drawing while listening to interviews with artists on youtube, was listening to joe mad today and some of his energy rubbed off i guess!
