    Well he’s probably busy on full mod alert what with every other thread this week being about unwanted sexual advances, prostitution and…er tumble dryers.

    brilliant! think I’m going to go back in to scribbly mode(not that I’ve ever really left it! πŸ˜† ), learn dimensions and different positions/angles of heads and bodies and the like for a bit, a wee bit of learning to do there for me. Really need to learn to do hair aswell.

    I’ve got a great book called Anatomy for the artist by Jeno Barcsay. Definitely worth grabbing if you see a copy on ebay or something. Beyond that just copy photographs from the net or magazines, and draw them out from the skeleton first.

    EDIT: What I mean is copy the figure as you normally would but then look at the pose and draw the skeleton into the outline of the figure, and any combination of the above.

    cool, will have a look, that alphonso dunn channel i posted up pages ago is great, got a lot of idea of where to go from him too. As with every, it’s just practice, commitment and time.

    Well you can’t go wrong at that price. I paid the princely sum of Β£15 for a second hand hardback copy. I can’t remember ow long ago that was, I only remember haggling with a cigar smoking old woman who wouldn’t budge πŸ™‚

    Inktober on singletrack. Brill! Here’s my latest:

    It’s Reginald Balustrade breaking the 5 minute bus dash.

    very good twirlip, like that, keep them coming! πŸ™‚

    I like how dynamic the runner looks without needing any other visual cues other than the body positioning and hair.

    Attempt at loosening up and drawing from imagination, trying to recreate a scene I saw on TV with forest, mist bands running across, mountains behind then clouds and sky. Not happy with hatching for the sky and think the most needed to look “looser”

    I’ve been trying to draw from the imagination. Not the runner, that’s from a photo of Roger Bannister, but on other days. I’m finding it takes a lot of research and reference.

    This was day 4: https://www.instagram.com/p/BZ1J9kMl-J5/?taken-by=thatmattwooding

    I needed a few pics of longships, a few of the sea and a few of the appropriate dinosaurs.

    It’s hard work but it’s out of my comfort zone which is kind of the point I guess.

    That’s great, could be a great cover for some of the books (beast quest, rick riordan) my lad reads!

    I think you did right to colour it in. IMVHO that’s exponentially better than the first draft you posted.

    I actually really like that, canny quite make out if some of the trees are trees or people running about the hills, quite interesting, scribbles are awesome, and other peoples eye’s won’t always see what you see. there’s a weird duality to it, in a good way.

    +1 on viking boat, post up people, don’t leave your stuff hidden behind links!

    colour a good choice on the spitfire too.

    Shut up and draw a skull

    The plan was to draw one when i got home last night but i couldn’t find any paper! So another early morning work doodle i’m afraid. Drawing from memory so it’s not structurally accurate – but that’s half the fun πŸ˜€ Took a few pics of the progress but the office is filling up and this is as far as i got….

    I love drawing with cheapo bic pens but it’s all to easy to get carried away and end up with a very dark image.

    Yer coming on no end can’t bike, try thinking about contrast and light and dark, see how you get on with that. (something I need to consider too.)

    Euro that’s a cracking skull. Know exactly what you mean I struggle at times with getting carried away and not doing enough at times. It’s a fine balance.

    There’s some awesome stuff on this thread.

    For the skull drawing people, this is free and pretty snazzy:

    Skull Sketcher v2

    And for anatomy fun you could do a lot worse than look at the Art Pose mobile apps (android and iOS). I’ve got tonnes of anatomy books (well, maybe 5) but I’ve found these more useful as you can generate the pose you actually want and learn through usage.

    And finally, this is last nights go at ‘shattered’.

    That’s great twirlip, reall like it. It puts me in mind of the Ian Jackson ‘Fighting Fantasy’ books for some reason. Anyone remember those?

    Do you illustrate professionally, ie books etc?

    today’s effort

    Malvern: Ta. I had quite a few of them. I never had the patience to play them all the way through but I think I came closest with Deathtrap Dungeon which was my favourite.

    Malvern: No. I’m an amateur. Took it up in earnest about 5 years ago. I am very keen though πŸ™‚

    Lacking inspiration decided to have a go at one of the list, here’s “screech” before and after trying to add background

    Cool stuff.

    Missed out last night but did a second skull after the first which shows improvement.

    Then on Wednesday remembered seeing someone drawing a load of paper planes, so I can’t take credit for the idea, but I came up with this:

    Couple of smudges due to it still being wet, and I’ve coloured in the back ground. So may do another one but take my time and not smudge it.

    This evening I may give Hellboy a go as I’ve never drawn him either. Although loving Marv, so might give something from Sin City a try. . .
