    Great improvements!
    I wouldn't worry about using tools in photoshop to help speed up and improve your workflow and art. Traditional art is a great place to shape up skills without any fancy tools and such.

    Farsh - Thanks so much for the critiques! I try harder!

    Nettle_Mountain - Hey, long time no see! Thank you for dropping by!

    lemming-clone- - Yea, i tend to get easily distracted with technicalities that it sometimes hinders my improvement. Thank you!

    Hmm, look what happens when i put the pencil aside for a while. So embarassing to put these up, but this IS a sketchbook, so you get to see the good, the bad, and the utterly horrible!

    Selamat Hari Raya, and nice selfportrait. Watch out for a few things though, the angle where you're facing in your render is different, i assume its not intentional? If so remember to keep watching out for proportions, not a bad effort at all. Try squinting when you look at reference (dont know if anyone mentioned this to you already), so you it's more obvious where the dark spots and lit areas are. Moar!

    Hey Farshie, thank you for the greetings! Thanks for pointing out all the mistakes i did. When i look at it closely, i realise even the eyes are off. @_@ I'll do the squinting technique more next time.

    Now eat some plums.

    Thanks for dropping by, appreciate it! Nice fruits, but wah lao, what happen to that girl in #51? She doesn't look too happy...
    Poses are quite good, keep doing those, will improve if you keep it up. Don't get caught up in detailing individual parts , try to think of things in terms of structure.

    So far so good, let's see what your next update brings...

    Farshie- Thank YOU for dropping by dude! My emotions affect my work so i guess i was angry then. That is the sad thing about me. Any negative emotions and my drawings goes down the drain. I'm still trying to control my negativity nowadays.

    yongs- Hey junior thanks for dropping by my sketchie too! Thanks for the comment.

    banana from the painting in PS2 thread, my bad gestures, faces, blind contours, and studies from Loomis! Loomis is awesome.

    Hey girl, you're in the right way. Keep studiying and have fun, it's important. In your gesture studies, sometimes, the head is a bit smaller than it would be. And try to update this sketchbook everyday !!! Cheers

    Heya . You have so many great anatomy sketches, something which I need to practice. I really like your scenery work too. It is all looking really good - you have loads of potential.

    Hello

    Thanks for popping by my sketchbook. Nice comment

    Liking your studies, especially the anatomy ones...something I should do more but it is hard with a full-time job I definitely agree with that, so good effort..

    I do have a suggestion that you could try for your skin-tones, something I did in college when studying illustration and that's using contrasting colours for shading. For example I use to use browns and dark reds then someone slapped my wrist and told me to experiment using purples, blues and greens. Then I went and looked at what colours some master impressionists and expressionists used and how and where they applied them and I learnt alot. (studying watercolour techniques is helpful for this too)

    Also a technique tip: If you start by blocking the skin area with whatever you choose as your mid-tone and then apply the shading where necessary and then finally put in your highlights, but whatever do don't use plain white, always use a creamy white. A fantastic teacher I had used oils and he taught me to thin it out and apply it in layers like watercolours so that as you build up the shadow and highlights over the mid-tone and it still shows through and gives you more texture.

    Anway I hope that helps.. See you around
