    Hey man,
    Told you you'll be improving if you keep going how your going
    Advice i can give.
    Your faces seem a little bit off. Do tons of studies of faces but when your studying them actully think about whats underneath the skin what makes it have a bump there and why it's going down somewhere else. Study the skull, mostly the jaw bones, the cheek bone determine alot of how your face looks.
    Anatomy wise your doing good, i would recommand something i want to do but can't really do since am not alloweed to study nudes *cries* anywayz go study bridgemen, hogarth and loomis These 3 books are your key to the magical kingdom called anatomy Just started from the top and work your way down the bottom each book will teach you something the other doesn't combine the 3 together and BOW you have the magical spell. Anywayz lets say if your studying the torso, go to loomis study how he does them and teaches them, then bridgemen the hogarth etc etc. Then when your studying a nude add everything you learned from these books into here, these books are all teaching you to see so when you see the torso twisting or something look at it remeber all the things the book taught you try to see where the muscles and bones stand out etc etc, this will surely help.
    It's what am aiming to do anyway, through the summer holiday i aim to finish bridgemen and hogarth and get started on loomis .
    Hope this helps in someways lol
    Also you said in my sketchbook you think i could have improved a bit more any tips on that , thats mainly the reason i started this poll just because people give me opinions like this and i really want all crits and help i can get. Oh and if your thinking am just gonne stop studying you are wrong .
    Peace and just keep at it bro

    hey Ronald. Thanks for dropping by at my sketchbook. I see you're doing a lot of digital stuff. I would encourage you to get back to basics for a bit and do a lot of life drawing. I've noticed it's helping out a lot. Great to see you're studying anatomy. Good stuff on the first page and seems like you have pretty good idea of the proportions. Best advices I've gotten is to keep things simple. Start with for example the skull and slowly work your way down learning all the bones. First drawing simplified forms and when you feel comfortable go into more detailed and complex.

    Keep it up Ronald!

    Hey man, thanks for stopping by. Nice stuff you got here. Just keep up those studies and make sure you're pencil stays sharp. As for your acrylics, try not to use black as a shading colour but the same colour I think les saturated or something like that, I don't know how to call that shit.

    Hey R Liu thanks for the comment man,
    I'm a true noobie when it comes to painting - i've never been schooled
    on it, so i'll look into the form n stuff u mentioned.

    I can see that Hogarth has really helped u along, I suggest doing some real
    life drawing aswell though as Hogarth's stuff is great, but some of it
    isn't 100% accurate when it comes to anatomy. (Don't get me wrong though, I Love Hogarth and I continue studying from him). Amazon has a good selection
    of nude model books, I bought some recently and found it really helpful.
    Either ways hope to see some more stuff from u soon man.

    An expert is a person that has made all the mistakes possible in their field.

    Me? I'm striving to be an expert:

    EDIT: oh what a mistake, I saw only the first page, it seems... I was too tired last evening, sorry. but I left what I wrote.
    ---
    the male torso in #23 is nice, but... when you left the torso, you started to make the body parts thinner, the arms, the neck... they aren't like this. OK, the torso was the main topic, but those parts are still in the picture, don't spoil your work oh and the neck isn't in the center, but you did a good job, you've improved a lot, keep it up!
    I wish to see more environments from you, I think you are able to grab something important there... I'm a totally complete beginner in enviros, but I know/see/feel they're important in creating the atmosphere and I enjoy looking at nicely done ones, they can be simple, quick, without much details, the atmosphere is the most important...
    ---
    the second-page stuff... wow, you make tons of studies and improve a lot, great
    and I see some nice critters here, my fav is the one in #44, it's lovely.

    I like your hans/arms and feet/legs studies, also those figur studies with stickmen looks really cool, and it looks well done too ^^
    I think your digital works are a bit stiff, not very dynamic compositions, or poses, and few colours, but on the first page there's one I really like. I think it is called downtown? Well anyway the colour verson of the city that seems to be kind of falling, verry cool. Don't know why, at least I do like the shape of the city, and the colours and maybe the composition too.
    Back to the tradional work, I think you need to work on the faces, but I see that you have updated a lot, and I'm sure you'll get there.

    ChuanMing: I understand what you're saying there. It was actually a scrapped rendering exercise with 2 colors.
    duck_king: yup life drawing eh
    shiNIN: actually that was really helpful you made me see those flaws
    Noire: yes I feel that it's empty too, really need to work on composition
    Dannelf: thanks for dropping by!

    my first life figure drawing, my first undressed woman... screwed up, need to study anatomy carefully

    Bridgeman stuff = good! As for your life drawings, try to block in the proportions in an early stage. For example: the leg in the piece with the woman sitting, her head is too big compared to her body (I could be wrong , maybe the neck's too short or something). Really check those proportions, my suggestion is to study Loomis a bit more.

    ChuanMing: Yes. Will do.
    Jansi: Thank you!
    J.Hansen: Actually I'll be 16 in a month, too. It's never too late to do the right thing

    I'm stuck with huge hand construction problems right now. I've worked out the basic proportions but the rest is crap. It's frustrating.

    i was taking a break and this thing came out and i don't know
