    He was being snarky because the OP had been in the linked thread.

    I thought the robot was cute.

    And this guy's paintings are really neato. However, I have no background in painting/anatomy, so I can't say much more.

    I think its chalk.

    Some of them look over-rendered. The woman with the shield for example is way too blurry. Block in some highlights like you did on some of the figures. Its a nice effect. I'm terrible with chalk, but thats all I can really suggest right now, because it still appears that you are really early in the process.

    It looks like you've got a ways to go in terms of anatomy but you can't really 'fix' that on a near finished chalk drawing. I agree with Forbe, some of them are over-rendered. It seems like you can't decide if you want to smudge everything together or leave hard lines so the drawings don't look unified (this may just be because they're not done). I personally like the hard lines better and wouldn't do any smudging. Smudging usually makes everything look flat and gets rid of any illusion of planes that the hard lines had. I think the 6th one shows the hard lines the best. Your line quality is pretty erratic, especially in the 8th one it looks like you got lost or 'sketchy' on the left side of her. Overall, I'd say these are cool for experimentation but you might need to go back to charcoal on white paper and refine line quality and anatomy before stepping up to this.

    I agree as well. Once I got working on this one:
    360final003.jpg
    I realized how much I liked the very greek/roman sculpture feel of it (especially in the face), hence the title, mythologies (which I've been trying to develop as a constant theme in these projects), so I stuck with it, and that's probably what's steering me in the wrong direction.
    As for the problems with quality, I probably should have mentioned what I'm working with here. I spray painted these panels of plywood with black paint and I'm using your run-of-the-mill school chalk, conte crayon and charcoal. I like the results for the most part, but as a student, I'm only able to afford the cheapest materials possible. That said, I've been having a lot of trouble getting the results I want, because the spray paint doesn't quite absorb the chalk and charcoal the way I want it to. Excuses, excuses, I know, but hopefully by the time I'm done with this project I'll have some kind of result I'm happy with.
    We'll have the model again on monday, and I'll try and develop what I have some more and put them at some point up so you guys can weigh in on them as they move along. But thanks for the comments thus far!
