Thank you very much Marian :-)!
Here are a few tests for my Butkus Skillshare project. Value schemes and some preparation for lighting. Next up an overpainted version.

Here's the so called finished sketch of the dog/girl-thing. Will probably not take it further than this. I think I learned a few things in the process though.
Yeah, the pose of the dog in this version is very static, I agree.. or "controlled" as one could say. It's after all a highly trained guard dog, waiting for input from his owner. At least that's a way of getting out of the dilemma not being very good at drawing dogs :-D ! Thank you for peaking!
Are you working on your project, or no time?

Yeah, would be cool to see what you come up with!
Some eye studies.

A few character studies using some of the lovely photos from photographer Mike Larremore as reference.

More face studies. Now with more focus on construction and no values. The nice photo refs are from Mike Larremore.

Hey Chronberg, wow so many studies, well done they all look good to me. I am especially impressed with the post #101 glass above the mixer and also I really like the last three in post #103. Really too much for me to comment on but great to look at and the character studies are very fun. I can tell that you are building a vast memory library.

Hey Marian! Thanks for watching. Trying to break away from pure studies and cross over doing a bit of my own stuff.. takes time, not quite there yet, but it'll come I guess :-)
A few more heads.

Nice progress. It's great to see you composing an image as well.
For post 94, since it's digital, you could erase it and redraw the dog in a better pose. I've gone through a painting and then realize I need to redraw some things. I know it slows down the process but fighting through times like that is really important. I think the composition can be improved on as well. I would move the girl away from the edge some more so the flower isn't awkwardly cut off. I would also vary the trees a bit. They look a little too similar. They can still look similar but giving a little variety can help. Also, pushing the lighting on the main figures would make them stand out more.
I would experiment with the body language. She looks upset with the guard dog. Maybe you have were walking ahead of the dog while the dog's body language suggests he is disappointing in himself and is behind her. I don't know. That was just a random idea.
Anyway, keep up the hard work. It's paying off.

Some more heads and also a few hand studies. Trying to use constructive methods.
Istmin52, thank you for looking and giving constructive critique.
As for the dog/princess image I think I agree with all of your comments. I did however complete the image, not being very satisfied, but having learned some things in the process.
Sometimes I think reworking until it feels as good as possible is the way to go, but I also feel that it can be a good thing to finish off a piece and start another one (especially if it's for practice anyway). I have a bad habit of never finishing stuff.. not being satisfied. I guess it can both be a curse and a blessing, depending on how you look at it.
Anyways, I need to learn and practice the fundamentals (most all of them) quite a bit more to be able to create and also rework stuff with some degree of certainty and speed, which is why I'm mostly doing studies at the moment. After that I hope I'll be able to start expressing my own ideas a bit easier.

Hello, nice work, I enjoyed a lot your caricatures and cartoon stylized studies.

Some more head studies. Still using the excellent photos of photographer Mike Larremore as refs.
Hey pauloricardo! Thanks for your kind words. Yeah, I will probably do some more "finsished" stuff later on again. It's fun.

Some boxes.. back to basics again.
Hey Istmin52! Yeah, faces are fun. Need loads more of practice though, but I'll keep at it!
