    Great shading on those bones! I say, keep on pushing and drawing everything and everybody (Damn there's not much to say abuot what you should do, since you're SO on the right track right no!)

    Whatever, when drawing, do some more measuring, pinpoint proportions. Use tools if you must, but remember that the most important tool is your guts. If something doesn't feel right, think and think and think and revise until it gets better. It's really about your own observation. The measring exercises help you seeing more things. And the construction exercises help you to feel your drawings.

    Great work!

    Faust,

    Man, thanks so so much! I really appreciate this coming from you It's nice to hear that you think that. I think it took me a while to figure out what to study and how and I feel like now I have the right recourses and that I'm on the right track.

    *Taking my "the things to remember when drawing" TODO list and adding another thing to remember* Thanks for this one Faust. That's something I should do more in these stages still. I'll work on that.

    Totally, do it! I write list from every feedback I get and read it few times a day when I'm drawing so I could absorb all the feedback and learn as much from it as possible!

    lOOOmis

    Yes sir, Loomis time. Spent my birthday at the zoo and trying to cope with the heat. Couldn't get any drawing done but I did read a bunch. Spent all yesterday drawing the head planes from Loomis book and hours today as well. Damned it was frustrating. Just could NOT figure out how the planes of the head work and I was concentrating too much what Loomis had drawn instead of trying to figure out how the planes on the head look. Well I kept pushing through the frustration and telling my self if I'm frustrated that just means if I push a bit further then I will learn something new and be that much closer to my dream. Today I still wasn't really getting it so I took some random magazine and placed the tracing paper on top of human heads and started to draw the planes on the heads. After a while it clicked for me and MAN WHAT A RELIEF after for several hours

    So what did I learn. Learn to love frustration and get exited when you get frustrated because that's a sign that you've hit the wall and if you keep pushing it, trying to climb over, dig under, go around, do what ever to get through that obstacle it means you've learned something new.

    Oh and I also figured out how the planes on the head works

    I'm a bit behind on my anatomy studies and daily portraits because of this but now I can go draw a few portraits because I have more info and tools to work with.

    Cheers Loomis!

    Brun, thanks a lot mate. Plan is to go step by step and build solid foundation. I think I've finally found the right things to study so now all I gotto do is execute it

    Those Loomis studies are really helping I think. Now I see the face a totally different way. 2 new selfportraits at my daily self portrait thread at:

    More Loomis studies today, a portrait study from life and a lot of reading and trying to figure out what Loomis is saying. Sooooo much to learn but trying to keep things compressed so I don't wander around too much in different areas and slow down the learning process.

    Also daily self portrait at:
