    If this doesn't make YOU feel good as an artist, I'm not sure what will :/

    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.
