    Improving constantly. Nice job on the face, and I think you have a natural talent for clothes!
    Cool job man, nicely rendered too, however remember to lift your pencil at the end of every stroke instead of scribbling. It will make it look a lot nicer.

    Fraz haha thanks man, yeah sometimes i was lazy and scribbled
    WriterofThanks man hope to speak to you on vent again someday

    alright I set out to do 100 heads in 100 minutes but sorta slacked, the 1st couple heads are 1 minute drawings the shitty shaded ones were abit longer. Then at the very bottom just some non reffed heads to see if I improved. Also my crappy copy of one of emily g's paintings which is in the thumbs above ^(I really should blend more and actually do the hair, too lazy lol). Also went to get a mechanical pencil today couldnt find 0.5mm T_T.
    ughhhh not good enough NEED TO KEEP PRACTICING.

    For your digipaint, some of the lines are off. The chin is slightly to the right of the center line, and the nose mouth and eyes are at different angles.
    You can see by this:

    Space wizard art training

    Your main fault are noses and lips. With the lips you can't see the edge nearly as clearly as what you have done. In parts they fade in quite gradually.
    On noses, get some bridgman studies for them.

    Nice stuff.

    Just keep at those studies. Also keep at the imaginary stuff and testing yourself. Simply making copies only get you so far but the way you are trying stuff from imagination after some studies is great.

    Keep it Up

    Fraz Thanks for the detailed crit man. With the chin your right but the eyes are actually on an angle according to the original. And what do you mean by the lip thing I don't understand exactly what your trying to say

    kidult exactly right man thanks.

    alright pretty lazy today but I did like my 1st "study" acrylic painting, very hard to work with took me awhile to realize how acrylic flows, blends etc but I learnt alot from this even if the product is a heap. I realise now why oils are the more preferred choice when it comes to more detailed paintings, fighting against acrylic drying is not a fun thing.

    With the lips you have too distinct of a border between the lips and the face. The lips are part of the face, but are just slightly different coloured and are planes on the face.
    With the new one, nice to see you experimenting.
    The butt goes into the legs all wrong though, there it looks like there is no ass, just a fat leg. The leg is also fatter than the ribcage.
    Oh well, lovely to see someone else in the ssg attempt paints.

    Hey Sketchz
    Keep the studies up. They need a little more fluidity so they don't seem so stiff but all in all it's a nice start to a sketchbook.

    Cheers

    There is some Bridgeman books in the free ebook thread somewhere in the referance section.

    Bridgeman has a funny way of installing a mental form trick, Sometimes the way someone write, when you read it the mind latches on to it.

    It's like drawing on a flat page but it feels as if your pencil tip is going off into the distance stating contour in 3d space. I like it when that happens and lucky it happens more and more lately.

    Another thing to just make it come out sometimes is to know that what you draw is on the page before you draw it. You are just making it come out so that others can see it too.

    I draw a quick warmup sphere just to get it back when I draw. I see the cue ball sitting on the billiards table there, I just need to state it. Even though the spere makes a contour of a perfect 2d circle the mind makes it feel like the pencil is in space somewhere working on something that has dimention.

    Sounds stupid but it's a subtle thing that comes and goes unless you make a habit of getting it at will.

    I noticed from your muscle studies, especially those direct front, side and back studies, those muscle studies are a quick way the mind usually get's pulled into 2d and end up drawing on the surface of the page. I will give that another try, my studies were mostly flat too.


    Line and fluidity you could try listening to some Baroque classical music, music seems to trigger those stuffs. It's hard listening to korn and draw fluid beutifull lines at the same time, maybe for some aggressive shading, some fast paced action music.

    Listen to some Queen as an example and notice how tidy and musically beutifull his singing is, compare that to line work in drawing.

    Baroque is great, I don't intentionally do this but the radio played some last night and I noticed how carefull I was at shading and drawing an ear out of hogarth's books. It slows you down and makes you feel your lines.
