    Pretty much finished the background. Now let's do the same to the ghoul.

    I'd play with some action blur on that shot.

    Hmm. It isn't actually hitting anything or walking. It has just raised the arm.

    Here's the final version:

    I really liked the background forest itself too, so:

    Here's what I've done in the 3D school. Not much but it was my second lesson. We didn't practice lighting. I added it myself before we quit so the effect is a bit bad.

    And here's faces I drew today. The first three are pretty terrible.

    hey man! the digitals are good, but i like the analog stuff on paper much more! i think you should work on your line-confidence and shading some more, but that will come with time.

    Thank you ODT.

    I'm trying to work on the pencil. Just lacking confidence and interest after finishing the ghoul. Personally I thought it was awesome (at least in my standards) and now the only thing I want to do is digital.

    EDIT. Just wondering about the shading with pencils. How is it done properly? I have normal HB2, B1 - B5 pencils and the shading you can see in my pencil works is pretty much best I can do. Unless I spend horrendous times shading even little areas. I keep the edge sharp and try to control the pen and pressure. Still the result sucks.

    Maybe I'm just not yet good enough.

    Unngghh... I've drawn with a pencil for 10 hours during these two days (that's a LOT for me). Still I've managed to draw only 3 pages of pictures. I'm so F***ING slow it makes me almost mad!

    Anyway, here you go.

    Don't worry about being "slow", the amount you produce is not usually proportionate to the amount learned, think rather in terms like these: quality of idea, grasping of concept.

    You know, I'm sure one could twist things and say; producing fast is working slow.

    Keep the updates and the work coming!

    Try to caricature the things which you are drawing that make them recognizable in the first place: impress yourself with the overall subject, then focus on details to remember, Exaggerate them for ease of recollection, simplify and go back to other subtleties once it is clear in your mind.

    Here's an example of what I mean: near the tear duct of the eye, you can quite often see a shape like a raven's beak, sometimes there is only a hint of it but it's usually there... integrate this with the rest of your knowledge about it!

    Things I suspect you might be doing: joining lines together (oval eyes), this detracts from realism, observe shapes more closely!
    Pressing your pencil too hard, this makes cavities in the paper and your lines become very hard to erase, try working very lightly, as if you were stroking the paper with your pen! If you are unsure in any case.
    As a rule of thumb I say: Strong/ Bold lines when you are sure and there it is of structural importance, Light (which you can still build up) the rest of the time.

    Think of how many straight black lines there are in nature, if any?

    Thank you Helioth.

    I had drawn faces before without caricaturing them. When I started doing that the quality rose significantly (I started doing it in my recent post after the first 4 ugly faces).

    I've always had pretty heavy hand when using a pencil. Drawing or writing. I just can't help it.

    Here's more faces. I was going to draw more but we got guests.

    I've been really lazy this week.

    Here's the very last faces. Boy am I glad to get rid of drawing them. Uff...

    Here's something small I drew in a train. I'm planning to draw WC3 abomination at some point and I sketched different weapons it could wield.

    After I dumped the magazines I used for face references I took one of our animal books and drew some bugs. I like these. They are so much easier and faster to draw than faces.

    My cousin asked me to draw Lightning McQueen from the Cars movie for my godson. I told her I prefer digital drawing and that I'm bad with pencil, so naturally she immediately demanded that I draw it with pencil and use wooden colors for colouring. The first drawing was "my own" but then I realized that 3 years old kids don't care if I create something unique with "interesting" situations or just copy the image as long as their favourite characters are in it. I ended up scrapping the original drawing and just plain copying this one because my own drawing wasn't as neat as this copy. ^^

    Here's the abomination I started working on. Instead of using colours right away I wanted to start with black & white this time.
