It's great to see how your art evolves. Those latest sketchbook pages and life drawings are much more fresh approach. I like that you let it loose and tried different things instead of just filling pages with same old anatomy studies . Good luck with exams.
Right now I don't have much to suggest other than to not be afraid to lose or soften some edges more in painted stuff.
Hey Nibras I just realized that you are Lilnebo! I used to lurk (and post a little) on here years ago and saw this sketchbook in its infancy and have finally come back - just wanted to say how much you've improved! Keep pushing!
Judging by the amounts of excellent work you produce with every update, it looks like you are actually very confident in making a living as a professional artist in the distant future. The only explanation to this fact is that is actually possible to make a living as a professional artist in your country, which makes me feel rather envious for both your birthplace and your drawing skills.
I'm curious, how much attending life drawing classes costs to you? Lots of people at CA living in the US and EU attend such classes, so I can't figure out if either everyone is rich enough to afford them or these classes are so cheap that everyone can afford them anyway.

I've finished school and now I have a long summer holiday to hopefully do some good things. I also got into the Glasgow school of Art which was my first choice of university so I am very happy about that.
Here's some work that I actually photographed. I did a lot more for my final A-level assessment but I didn't get time to take many photos. Plus I spent most of the year doing stuff I really didn't enjoy just to "experiment"
This was actually going fairly well with the face in the middle and on the right, then I got to the upper left face and just couldn't do it. I was rushing and after about 2 hours of trying i let it be as it had to be assessed. I might go back and paint over it digitally Attachment 1524426 Attachment 1524427
Rob Rey Study (once again sorry for murdering your piece, if you guys haven't checked out his work do so. He is insanely good) Attachment 1524453
And finally, I learnt how to use masks so I was experimenting. I also learnt some "brush" techniques. It makes the whole process so much easier Attachment 1524454 Attachment 1524455
That's all for now, I am working on a couple of things that I can hopefully upload for tomorrow. This is attempt #1102218381731 at keeping this sketchbook updated. To the CA guys, you reaaalllllly need to get that upload manager upgraded
