    Looking good so far man.

    You might want to look for a tutorial on drawing faces ( Just google it I guess ). It will help you get the proportions correct when your drawing faces.
    For example: http://www.rabbitprince.com/tutorials_art/face.html
    Though there are probably better diagrams/tutorials than that but that gives you the basic proportions.

    Keep it coming

    You have skill in rendering. I like how you got the tones for the halo drawings.

    You were asking about how I did the grids in my sketchbook. I used the perspective tool in Manga Studio to make them. Of course you can do the same in Photoshop especially with the path line tools.

    Keep practicing and posting

    Hey man, I'm really glad your interested in improving

    You can download the Loomis drawing books in PDF format, they are free Get them here:
    http://acid.noobgrinder.com/Loomis/

    Theres one on figure drawing and another one that seems to be on heads and hands. Check them out. The Loomis books are used heaps here.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for checking out my book. I guess you are doing the same stuff Good to see, in your first posts faces definitely seemed to a be a much weaker point, while your rendering looks great. Keep at it!

    Thanks for dropping by my SB , you asked me about digital painting but I don't think you should focus on it yet. For now your problem lies in the construction of your figures, heads, etc. It's good to see you've got the loomis books so go through Figure Drawing For All Its Worth first then move onto Drawing The Head and Hands afterwards. Also picking up the Vilppu drawing manual wouldn't be a bad idea either, it'll focus on using primitive 3D shapes as means of a base construction. Also, when working from the loomis stuff, etc. REALLY TAKE IT IN, don't just copy it or you're gonna be wasting your time I started doing Figure drawing for all its worth when I was 16-17 and I can tell you that I wasted my time a lot because I just copied the muscles without thinking about how they are as a mass and possibly how they function individually. Also do you have a tablet? If you do and you want to do a little digital painting, read the 'how to digi paint in photoshop' threads, etc. for a basic idea for now. Also, there are no real 'techniques' or anything, heck I pretty much only use 2 brushes in Painter IX which is what I use to digi paint. But anyways man just draw as much as possible and keep at it and you'll get to where you wanna go Some cool stuff here also heheh

    The trick with these practices is to start from dark to light. And greyscale to colour. Big to small.

    Hm...For that photo referenced drawing - spend more time with the line and get it as exact as possible before you do any shading otherwise it wont look good no matter how much shading or color you use. On the eyes try using a horizontal guide line to get them facing the same way and be on the same level. Just keep drawin!!

    Keep practicing your digital painting but I think your main focus should be on basic anatomy and rendering. I know it's boring but any work you put into it now will pay off big time later.

    BTW I really think you pencil shading looks great!


    Just DRAW!

    You have some nice stuff in here, and your heads are improving. Going along with what EtherRain and lewisaurus said, practice your anatomy, but don't just copy the muscles. I find The Human Machine by George Bridgeman a really good book for that. It talks about how the muscles work, and I think you should look into it. Once you have the foundations down, it'll easily translate onto the digital medium.

    hey man thanks for dropping by my book, i gotta say i love how you practice so much, that's definitely the way to go. about your digitals, i suggest to stay away from that a little longer, you can only paint what you can understand, so it would be better to learn about all the underlying structure first, you know, face anatomy and things like that. once you got that down, you know what you need to look for and everything will be much easier. keep it up

    Wasai, you are good at drawing helmets - I love it!

    But as other mentioned - keep practicing anatomy, one tip is to mark out places before you actually begin to draw for real (Hope you understand what I mean) It's easier to draw a picture with a right proportion.

    I've seen you made some good practice, but I would like to see them in use

    Keep it up!
