I think they go together really well.. Maybe you want to pick the two you think are best and place those on the left and right side of the abstract thing? Or put the three dance poses above or below the abstract thing looks good ^^ don't worry..
I know exactly what you mean with the anatomy studies instead of school work. I do way too much personal stuff compared to school stuff.. I try sometimes to keep a little connection with school stuff though, so that I can maybe show it at evaluations haha

you have some great work here. You post pretty frequently and your looking to improve.
You have already received lots of advice, but have you ever tried using a mirror when your drawing from life or ref. compare your drawing an the real thing (or photo) and you might be able to see things that look out of place.
keep working yo butt off

NoŽ: I try to do the same thing. That's why I put so much effort in this 'wytches brew' song assignment for 'Beeld & Concept'.
hunchback: yeah, I get what you mean. I should do that more often.
Maybe I should do this week every day one self portrait from mirror?
Yeah, I'm going to do that. That's good practise
Maybe I should wait with uploading stuff until I have more to show...
But I was so happy with new reactions from people, and I forgot to post this one earlier (it isn't finished yet, but I like it already to be honest )
It's from Bernini's 'David'.
The scanner doesn't work and the battery of my camera is charging, so I can't post the posemaniacs I did today.

OOOH Love it!
The technique is wonderful! White pastel or chalk on black paper? Should try that some time ^^
One thing on this one: it looks like you made the face (eyes, nose, mouth) a bit too large for the head size? but comparing it to the pictures of that statue it doesn't look like a lot too big I love the variation of tones that you got, and the contrast with the dark paper! great stuff hihi Will reply to your mail tomorrow haha sleep now ^^

Very good progress!
Try and use fewer, more complete lines in your sketching. It's a lot easier to think about a line, where it beings and ends, how it connects and disconnects, its weight, the ways it twists and so on, and then draw it once you understand it than it is to draw several lines or lots of little fuzzy dashes. It's always easier to erase and redraw 1 whole line than it is many! This will also push you to think about what you're drawing more, and after a while of practice it will all happen in a second!
Hope that helps some. Good work so far!

Really nice traditional paintings. Love the colours and contrasts! totally respect people who work entirely traditional. No matter how good a digital painting may be, it's always more satisfying finishing the physical painting. *thumbs-up*

Yay! A lot reactions! You people made my day!
JailHouseRock2: tnx Matt!
NoŽ: Haha tnx! it's done with soft white colour pencil.
I struggled several hours (with a lot of breaks) with the face, until I didn't care anymore and left it this way.
nakatoni: hehe, the quick ones are really hard for me to do, because I'm a very stubborn perfectionist... but they are a really good practise!
AmontilladoAg: ahw thanks! That made me smile
IanE: That's a good tip (though i've heard it before.. but I don't listen to it I guess)! I'll try to do my best with my selfportrait this evening .
Vloth: Really nice of you to drop by! If you're going to do some real life animal sketches too, I'd recommend drawing with ink or somethin. It's harder I guess, but it worked for me the best
bigus_dickus: Tnx! I don't do any digital art because everyone does it (that doesn't mean that I don't like it though, some people can make really incredible things), and I like the craft work, mixing the colours, the paint on the canvas, the pencil strokes...
Very, VERY small update. I finished this *cough* sketch tonight...
I saw some Mucha art last week and it inspired me. Thought it would be fun to copy the pose from some piece and translate it to my style.
I wanted to make it more realistic, and I'm going to do a painting (in blue-tones I think) when my evaluation week at school is over (next weekend ).
I really love to make things with the theme paganism or magic or something like that. I feel attracted to that and I have tons of ideas to work out.
I made some changes, for example the toes and all the shadows (and the drapery isn't exacly as in mucha's work).
Don't mind the blurry right corner. I was too lazy to start the computer downstairs, scan the thing etc.
EDIT: the head is waaaaaaaaaaaay to small... I'm not going to change/improve it in this drawing. I guess it's something to work on in the painting.
The selfportraits i've been doing this week will be posted tomorrow, posemaniacs too.

WHOA!! DAMN, I.. I ... I.. DAMN! youve seriously improved, i think you mightve past me on the ability skill. but damn, you sure know how to control your brush and pencil. id like to know how good you are with applying your own style?
