    I like the shapes these two figures create, connected by the subject of the food going in the pan. Your attention to proportion in your figures is phenomenal, K. I end up with big heads and long torsos too many times. 🙂

    Thanks kseverny! The larger picture will definitely have a different feel; there’s a whole line of guys waiting for grub behind the guy leaning over for his food, and I think that would be interesting to show, but this being a quick pen sketch and not properly blocked out I didn’t have room to show them all…but it’ll be interesting to see what you think of the complete picture.

    Thanks Leslie! Proportion is certainly a hard thing, and I won’t tell you how many sketches I don’t put up because I’ve messed up the proportion…but the more we draw seems the better we get, which is sure a good thing.

    Looked through nearly all the pages and I love them so much, Trying to get good at sketching myself (Not going so well)

    Since I love them so much I would like to make a page of your sketches if you let me dont worry they will all be © and acknowledged.

    Wondering if you could give me some tips.

    Email me at Levisara74@yahoo.co.nz if you want.

    And one last thing im Sarge not Ubique, Ubique is just a thing I put at the end of all my posts (It was the motto for my Grandads unit in the second world war)

    So email me if you want.
