    don't we all just lay down the basic silhouette and the major shapes at 25% zoom and increase the zoom as you add details and blend. also try to use the biggest brush for what you need (instead of many small strokes). I know - the theory is simple keep it up

    Great to see that you are doing studies. I bet you'll improve a lot, fast. Something I notice about you stuff is the lighting. Keep in mind that the planes that are tangent with that light source, will be where the core shadow will be. Planes that are 90 degrees to the light will be the lightest.
    I just did a quick little paint over on your last work to show what I mean.
    http://img148.imageshack.us/my.php?i...over001rl7.jpg I didn't bother to fix the anatomy or anything (maybe because I suck at anatomy). Just wanted to show that a consistent light source shows form. If it's not consistent, it will just look wrong. Hope it helped

    Btw, I'm 16 too

    good work on the studies, but make sure that when you're working from a photo or whatever, that you're actively thinking about what you're doing and why. You can even take small liberties to enhance what you're doing (like exaggerating the poses a bit to make them more fluid). Sometimes that helps to really solidify what you're studying. The character design silhouettes look interesting but the heads look large, not sure whether or not that's what you're going for. Keep it up!
