    the pencil drawings were good those eyeballs were GREAT! almost scary real ur photoshop def. needs work but if ur ever going to get good at anything my advice is to continue trying even as depressing it may get..might even inspire good luck and btw i like how you were doing studies of actual people i think i might have to start doing that
    why is skeletor a skeleton with purple muscles and if your a skeleton how do you even have muscles{by the power of grey skull thats how}

    Hey hey! Another fellow beginner here! Only..I started even later in the game then you! So no worries there.

    Here's some names that will help you alot if you are anything like I am: Loomis and Vilppu.
    "Figure Drawing" by Loomis is like my bible..tons of GREAT info there, and Vilppu's "Drawing Manual" is amazing for technique.
    Also, if you have 50 bucks floating around, pop by alienthink.org. Lots of great anatomy lessons on 5 dvds. Great learning tool!
    Warning! Drinking lots of beer can impair your senses. Please do so before you view my sketchbook!

    hes either saying your drawings flat, or it needs a bit of space in the background, now its just a floating head

    but really, both
    take a look how other people have drawn faces, remind yourself of the muscles of the face, the ones thatll cast shadows blah blah, i suck at faces aswell so i shouldnt be giving this advice haha

    Update! Instead of jumping right into the other faces, I decided to take a little detour and first try to learn and understand how to make them more realistic. Thus, I've done a page on hatching and values. It's opened my eyes just a tad on how I could apply this to my art.

    I like the eyeball drawings the best... if only I could see the rest of the face!! It seems you've found a medium that beautifies your drawings - the Charcoal Pencil - and it seems to give a great 3D texture to those eye drawings. Try using it on portraits and anatomical studies, and see how it turns out!

    Hey, I'm loving those eye pics you did. you've really got a way with charcoal. However, I'd like to see eyes like the ones you drew stand-alone, in your faces.
    Great job so far though!

    Updaaate! Did a skull drawing. My mentor tells me I'm a bit lacking in side views on my characters, so I decided to do a side view skull

    The one on the lower part was freehanded, mind you XD So it's not wonderful. Hence why I need to do these studies. ;P Lol. Enjoy

    hey, thanks for stopping by... some thoughts:
    - definitely more faces (look at some loomis books for the anatomy)
    - don't smudge, try to shade with clean pencil strokes
    - follow the shape of the face
    - pay attention to the egdes (when sharp/blurry)
    ....just my two cents ^^ - keep at it!
