Female Skull Value Studies Begun!

Just the first one! I’ll aim to get them all done within 24 hours! I’ll be completing them after work so i’ll only have around 8 hours!

Female Skull Studies for Crimson Daggers Mentoring with Shyam Shriram!

I’m doing an online mentoring program taught by the awesome Shyam Shriram.
The classes are held over at the Crimson Daggers forum here.
The whole initiative was setup by Daniel Warren and Dave Rapoza (the creators of the forum). If you haven’t heard of it before and would like to join in with improving your art skills then you can learn about the Crimson Daggers here. All abilities are welcome as we’re all about improving ourselves artistically.

So these are my first studies I’ve completed for the first assignment:

The full assignment is this (I’ve only finished the first part!):
10 Female Skull Drawings – please spend more time on the construction, only line drawings.
10 Female Skull Paintings (Black & White, no need to render too much, just concentrate on the construction and values/tones)
5 Master copies

Caucasian and Asian Head Line Studies!

Following Sickbrushes mentoring assignments over at when I can. Doing assignment 1 to do 30 line studies of heads from 5 different races. 3 male head studies and 3 female head studies for each race.

Just a couple of study sheets and final Ned

Getting more confident with my gestures and feel less stressed about doing them. They’re fun to do and when a pose inspires me when I’m doing a set of 2 minute gestures, I’ll pause my reference photo slideshow and add some anatomy and values. This is a daily thing now and it feels good!

Also I’ve been updating old sites like deviantArt and my sketchbook so I’ll add links to all of the places I’m actively posting work to at the moment. It’s all from here though!

I forgot to upload this one! Sketchbook | Crimsondaggers Sketchbook | Livestream | deviantArt
