Hey All

Looks like I'll be teaching a class at Otis starting this month.  Just letting you guys know that
I'll be posting most of the demos.  If something is not clear in the demos I post, let me know
and I'll be more than happy to answer your questions.

If you're an Otis student and you just want to swing by and talk art, I'll be on campus on Wednesdays.

Let's do this!!!

I looked up of your gallery and it's a bless. It mainly focuses on human anatomy and drawing, but it's a key of any kind of understatement basics... Sketches are step-by-step pictures are worth of looking up the progress and study. 
But, I have a problem with my own artwork. I seem to still search the right style or mood for my works and the latest one is the kind of, what I am looking for.

(Skull is weird and teeth, it has a neck, hands too big for a skeleton, no real source of light. I see the problems...)

I need work with more dramatic lighting, more anatomy, real backgrounds and many more. Maybe more details, maybe stronger color palette, not sure about it yet. There are so many tutorials and sites, giving so much information at the time, that sometimes I am not sure, what to actually do or how much.
I have no school experience on art. So I have been struggling with self study. (I have read books about the subjects, Andrew Loomins, Artist anatomy guide's etc.)

So, is there any of advise how I should keep practicing? (You can be only best at your craft if you do it so much, but you need advice how to do it right and do something else in same way.)
It would be VERY helpful and I would be so thankful for a criticism just for once. 
But, you deserve a watch!

Thank you.  Do you mean who do I look at for line work?

Kind of..simplifying forms, planes, giving a general outline. I'd say some stuff you do is reminescent of Bridgman (less traditional perhaps)  and Michael Hampton (though I have to say that your notes are more consisten than his)

The stuff I learned from my instructors originated for Bridgman so I'm happy that
it shows through.  I feel humbled knowing that the knowledge I've learned and
continue to improve upon is knowledge handed down from master to master.
If you want more of this type of knowledge, John vanderpoel's book is amazing and cheap :)
He was Leyendecker's teacher.  You can't go wrong with the Andrew Loomis books.

I hate saying this but I REALLY do not like Michael Hampton's work.
The instructions are riddled with mistakes and his personal drawings
do not exemplify anything he goes over.  I was given his book by a buddy of
mine who wanted to know what I thought of it. I use it as scratch paper.
I also don't like the fact that he credits none of the instructors from where the
knowledge originated that are still alive today.  I feel this is very disrespectful.
