    Wow first comment

    Anyway, well i cant give you a lot of advice because i suck at drawing faces and that is the thing you do the most. But if i could give you a advice it would be to work on different parts of the body (or face) at the time. For example one day you only draw lips or eyes and ect. Another thing that helps is to draw for life as much as possible, allways having a sketchbook with you and draw the people you see.


    Have any time, please visit my sketchbook

    Hi man!
    You have very interesting studies, specially i love the eyes you draw

    This is true that there are a lot of people that improved a lot posting here, and im also in this forum beacuse of this.
    Im afraid i cannot give many crits, but i can suggest that you would try to make more contrast in the shadows of your faces, i mean that in the grayscale you dont arrive to the black, and i think this would give some volume to the drawings. (just a suggestion , i like your faces a lot ^^)

    By the way, i love the expresivity you give to the faces with the eyes, specially the girl next to the bold man, good job!

    see you

    Hey dude.
    Some nice portraits you got there.
    Some advice for portrait drawing. Be really careful with the alignment of features! This is mistake most people make, but I think it can be easily avoided.

    When starting a portrait, lightly mark out where everything is suppose to go, then check it, double check it, and check it again.
    I can't stress the importance of this step enough, no matter how good the rendering is, if this step wasn't done well, it won't look right.

    Study some of the old anatomy masters will help immensely.
    George Bridgeman, Glen Vilppu, Burne Hogarth and Andrew Loomis are the ones I always recommend.

    Keep up the good work!

    that last one definitely shows an improvement in your faces, namely the placement and relative sizes of features. The values are a little vague though, the colour job reminds me of dark knight promo (RIP heath).

    The strongest piece here so far is your unfinished sketch of the girl holding balloons.

    Sup man, just returning the favor....thanks for posting in my book. Your sketches are really sketchy, nothing wrong with that. But one problem I had was tons of small, pencil marks all over the page.....like instead of drawing a chin it looked like there was a beard on it. That sucks when you're trying to draw a chick lol. Anyways, thats one thing I'd suggest is to be conscious of making too many scribbles that take away from the sketch. Don't get discouraged.....keep posting!

    You alignment on the last image is much better I agree! You

    If you want to try to avoid the "sketchiness" MrBobMarley is talking about, I would suggest trying to draw with a marker or a pen. It helps you to be sure of what you are putting on the page because you can't erase it. I see the same sort of thing going on with your PS painting. Maybe try a painting with between 70% and 100% opacity brush.

    Not to pile you with advice , but drawing simple things from life like apples really helps as well. I know it sounds lame and boring, but you really start to like it after a while.

    The anatomy is off in some sketches but the rest is quite nice. Keep on practicing on the human anatomy, also, is that Jesus in that one picture?
