FDW - Sessions 6
More train wrecks but there are some improvements. Getting quicker at laying in structure and quick simple value shading. Times range between: 10secs - 25min
I also bit the bullet and purchased some time on the xTrain website where Ron Lemen has his training foundation videos. I highly recommend them if you're unable to get any formal training... shit, even if you can get formal training, his instruction are still very informative. I've been using his charcoal pencil technique; shaving them down with a strait razor. Doing that provides a lot of options for mark making. Sadly I went through 2 pencils cause I kept breaking the tips as I shaved them down. doh... But I really like the resaults.
