I might try writing up a crit later, just too tired right now. But I love this, it is so classic, but I love your spin and influence on it. His pose and how he looks like he is really contemplating something. I really love how loose your style has become and yet you make it still have substance. The one thing I do notice that may help is adding some more defined shading to really make his form have presence.

I agree with you. The shading here could definitely use some work. I was working on different ways to approach shading that may be faster since I'll be selling these on site and will have to work fast. I'll just have to keep practicing for the best, fastest shading method :)

Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I've really tried to loosen up a lot, since I realized that the art I was most attracted to is very lose and stylized and I've been fighting that influence for years by trying to be dark and gritty when it's not flowing for me. It's been nice to allow a style to find me.

The loose style really fits nicely. It's tremendous. Do you use water colors at all? I real light, simple wash could be done for shading. With minimal practice, you could shade each area in one stroke and it likely would blend in nicely with the loose affect. I'm not totally positive, but it has probability to produce a cool affect with minimal time use.

I love watercolors. This is done in watercolored pencils, which I've picked up recently due to their ability to do very quick work, especially when life drawing. I'm still working on combining them with regular watercolor and ink. I might need to do some washes first with shadow and light and then do the pencils over.

That makes sense now. I've worked with both, bust started combining the two lately...when I'm too lazy for doing strait water colors.

Mine tends to be more of a travel issue over lazy :) I take busses to work, so I'm super limited on what I can carry with me if I don't want to carry a huge backpack at all times. And when I go to the zoo, there's not nearly enough space to set up a decent watercolor study area, so I just use the pencils.

I like that idea, it totaly makes sense. I'm one of those silly people carrying a large heavy bag around. But I've never tried the water color pencils for quick life sketches.

I love his expression! It's almost like he is sizing up the next contestant.
