    I see I am not the only straight guy with a inexplicable fetish for Aragorn ;)

    Josh makes a good point. What are you doing spending so much time drawing a guy? Why not a half-naked chick? Wouldn't that make it more enjoyable? ;)

    It looks great Justin.

    And hey, some of the greatest artists in history have sculpted and drawn naked men.

    at least Aragorn has clothes on!

    LOL guys!

    I chose Aragorn for a variety of reasons...one is he's just so cool!

    the other is look at his textures; leather, suede, linen, metal, scruffy beard, hair, blooded hand etc.

    A half naked girl would have been interesting for sure...but Aragorn was challenging, VERY challenging!

    :)

    Thanks for the comments guys!!!

    Amazing Justin. Amazing.

    See, that's my problem. I'll have an image like that in my head. I can see it clearly. Then, I try to put it down on paper, and it's horrible.

    Where you looking at a template when you drew that? Or was it from imagination?

    i hope I get a good mark too!

    actually Jake what i had to do was basically have three layers.

    The actual picture > A white layer > A drawing layer.

    So I worked over top the actual picture kinda like tracing paper...

    Butt this is what we had to do :)

    Sometimes I find if you spend tim eon something lik ethis you can do something off the top of your head :)

    Oh and just so you guys know...I used a wacom tablet...

    [image=http://www.photoshopping.it/immagini/wacom.jpg]

    it acts just like a pencil nd a mouse...its amazing :)

    Nice to have a stocked class eh!

    thanks again everyone!

    It makes me glad that you all really like it and that i am happy with it!

    I have the exact same tablet!

    And I can draw a stickman with it!! I didn't know you could draw real stuff with it too. Maybe mine is broken. :p

    Actually it is a nice tablet if you have the patience to work with it. With a paint program that recognizes it you can do a variety of different strokes and just turn the pen part around and erase the mistakes.

    I generally use it to touch up photos personally.

    I've been convinced to resurrect this thread and add my "latest project".

    I did it last night after watching the Extended version of FotR. It's based on a few reference pics I found online and it took me a couple of hours to do. In case anyone's wondering, it's actually all done in regular pencil, but doesn't look it because everything got a little darker when I scanned it. Click on it because the width-height ratio is wrong here! :)

    not bad. If I want to go into Fashion at all, I'll have to learn how to sketch... I can't draw people at all.
