    I have to agree! Very impressive studies. Your digitals are vastly improving. Those detail studies are an interesting idea. never thought about doing that digitally.
    Like you already said it's really easier to paint when you have your proportions down correctly. I spend as much time as I can discipline myself to do on the drawing but then it's really quick working because I don't have to correct so much.
    Those bridgman studies look so damn good!! Makes me want to reference you rather than the original.

    Yup, you guessed it. Seems your brushwork and blending has improved a ton since then though, really good to see. Still, looks like you are working too hard to get the edges and shapes you need. Not sure if it's the tablet or not, but might be time to invest in a new Wacom. I believe the base models (Which are still fantastic) start around $100USD. Make sure if you haven't already that your brushes are set up with opacity and flow to pen pressure. I don't usually use manual opacity but will use manual flow when needed for control.

    Things to watch out for on these so far is drawing accuracy, really spend some time and hit this and nothing else - it's going to help you so much. Next is your values as well as your edges.

    Anyhow, improving really fast - keep it up!

    Mumumash : Thanks, man

    DigitallyDumbfounded: Thanks girl !! it's a pleasure to hear what you said, and it really motivated me

    Idiot Apathy :Thanks for the tips, I was just using opacity with pen pressure. I've add flow with pen pressure, and I've set the brush space to 25 % and now it works very well. But I think I'll upgrade my tablet to a wacom, but it will be difficult to draw in a 4x5" format. I just find the 6x8" format a bit small

    bharat : Thanks dude !!

    It's been a while that I didn't touched a pencil So today, bridgman studies, and a failed selfportrait ( especially the left eye which is suching, really don't know what's happened !!)

    The Bridgman studies are great! Definitely keep those up... and your digital studies seem to be improving in leaps and bounds... quite inspiring to see I especially enjoy the little girl in #25.

    Just keep doing what you're doing - maybe just take the extra little patience/time to bring a few more of your sketches/studies to a slightly more finished level. Keep rockin it!

    Wow, you´ve got some great works here!!
    The photostudies are just awesome!!
    When I see all this great stuff I tend to get depressed, but thanks for your advice! (I looked through Algenpflegers sketchbook for example and was just speechless... and also your sketchbook! ...I really have a long way to go before I get to this level )
    So I´m looking forward to see a lot more of your great work here!

    Clochette : Thanks xD!

    sinneart : Thanks !! Yeah, I really need to take more time on my painting. Another point is that I really find that my paintings are lifeless ( even if it's a bit better than first digit studies) So I'm still searching this little thing to add to my paintings to bring those alive !

    Aayana: Thanks !!

    bigfooTrooper : Thanks man, an yeah, you are right, it's "santé" in french xD

    So today, just some head studies and a selfportrait, really need to take more time on proportions, and values are a bit sucking

    Hey thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. You got a great start on studies, some simple advice would be...take some time off and travel outside to draw, its guaranteed fun. (which I assume you probably already do.)

    Hey, what a great sketchbook you've got. It's amazing to see just how much more confidence you’ve seemed to have gotten in your pencil strokes since you've started out.

    I agree with you that it sometimes can be really hard to pick out the right color on an object, but I've read about a really good way to get around this: Take a piece of grey carton and cut a small hole in the middle of it. If you then look at the colors through this hole you'll be able to estimate the color without the distraction from the surrounding colors.

    Had a better look through your SB. Really great stuff. I notice your eyes sometimes seem too small or big. A good rule to remember is that a portrait face is 5 eyes wide, including the two that are actually there. Hard to explain. From ear to ear, divide the face into 5, and one that's the size of the eye. Might not be the official version but I find it works. Try it out. If you don't get what I mean, tell me and I'll try and explain it better Keep it up.
