    Good to see you back dude, now you just gotta make up for the long absence, lol. Keep up with those studies and you'll be better than ever in no time ;-)

    RandAlThor: Thanks man! I appreciate it

    ~20 min self portrait with a new sanguine charcoal pencil...my drawing is really light, the paper is really coarse and my scanner really sucks so the quality of the scan is pretty low...

    notable errors: well, from the bridge of the nose up, it actually kind of bears a resemblance to me...but i totally botched the length of the nose and the mouth is misshapen, too small and off-center.

    comments?

    edit: spent a few minutes just playing with a light color layer to see what i could do...

    Very good anatomy studies you have on you first page. This one here though, your head is turning away, were the face is looking straight forward. Look back at your studies and apply that knowledge. I know you've got it in you, you can fix it. Keep on drawing.

    Some of my more recent stuff...Most reffed (some from threads on here), although a few are from imagination.

    The digital one was just an attempt to get back into my tablet after months of doing just pen and pencil on paper.

    Some (gasp) anatomy. First set is from Hogarth, second is Loomis.

    I love actually reading Loomis's books, as opposed to just looking at and copying the pictures. He has so much to say that's just absolutely profound, and something every artist can take and use directly in his or her art.

    Quick b/w ref of a banana to keep trying to get into the swing of using my tablet / getting simple values and stuff down.

    HI!
    Thanks for dropping by my Sb man!
    Keep on doing those Loomis studies, they help tons!
    Nitpick: most of the heads you draw / paint tend to be too wide,
    you might want to check on that on your next pieces.
    keep it up!

    angry filipino: thanks i'll keep that in mind.

    Digital paintover of one of the above Hogarth studies, and an apple. You can tell I ran out of patience, I had already spent way too long on it :/

    Hey, nice sketchbook, that last apple you did is pretty sweet.

    A couple things about that last portrait, I think in your blending you lost the correct values. Like his right cheek and around his lips I believe there should be some darker values. I know that kind of stuff happens to me when I blend, so just watch out for it. Otherwise, I think there should be some lighter tones around and on his nose. Also watch out for the eyes, the whites of the eyes are rarely pure white. Although the whites of his eyes are actually the lightest part in the reference, I think that they're a little too white in the portrait.

    Hope you can make sense of my critique, heh heh. Keep it up.

    Swampdigger: Thanks for the crits, it's always useful to have an outside perspective, especially on something as complex as the human face. Much appreciated!

    Just a quick page of deep Loomis head studies before bed, I've realized that whatever knowledge I had of head proportions got lost in my months of inactivity, and it's time to fix that. And what better anatomy genius to re-learn it from?

    Got out and got a set of moleskines, just copied the Loomis front-view proportions into my first one so far.

    And I recently got a book full of different people each making dozens of facial expressions, second pic is an attempt to ref one (total f'king failure).
