    When you're drawing figures (from the head or ref), try and get the major forms to be more accurate before you move on to smaller muscle groups and surface forms. Sounds really basic, so I hope I'm not coming across the wrong way, but if you look at Ron Lemen's or KChen's stuff you'll see what I mean.

    Really try to nail the initial proportions and then divide the basic forms using landmarks and structural rhythms, its really important to gradually work from big to small.

    The same goes for shading, try and simplify and group tones as much as you can at the early stages.

    Your studies have been really nice lately, keep at it!

    k... So i may suck at painting and faces BUT! i have now kinda got better at choosing colours for shading/general colouring. I was reading this book i picked up and it reminded me that i could use the colourwheel to remind my self what colours to use and such. So i was all like sure why not and gave it a try. Ummm the face wasn't supposed to be realistic, i was more or less trying to make this funky face that i drew in my sketchbook but then i was like nah and made it slightly more realistic. Btw can someone give me tips on what colour to paint eyes? this was irritating and it looks like its glowing. Which is cool but not what i wanted xD

    - i find it a bit to dark. Next time i shalt try brighter colours! or maybe a brighter background?

    PS: this was a bit of a quick paint, like half an hour. So the its not really blended. Was more looking at the colours/shading then anything...

    btw can anyone tell that ive been doing face studies? i hope so xD - the nose is a tad big though and messed up the top lip... xD

    btw btw it looks a bit smudgy any tips for that? darker colours? brighter ones maybe? or just more shadowing of the same colour here and there?

    57, I have seen a vast improvement in your faces, they take a long time to get right but... once you learn how to line up the features and get the proportions right you will start to see faster and it will become easier, getting better very quickly. I usually have to change the eye line several times and the pupils, but if you go away from a piece and come at it refreshed it can help. Also asking for crits and receiving them helps a ton. You have a great crew of very helpful people now helping you, it will pay off soon... huge strides, just take a look at page #1 and now look back here. Great job in a very short amount of time. NICE!!!!!!

    thanks kelly! i'll be sure to follow your advice and thanks for the encouragement!

    - well sorry for the lack of updates but i have been drawing, just in my sketchbook and not on the computer, and since i dont have a scanner i can't really show my work in high quality.

    anyways, the face i made is ok, i think i got better so hurray me! and i kinda like the little eye i drew. That Andrew Loomis book helped quite a bit.

    I flipped through some of your work.

    its good progress better than i was at your age but then again people move different in phases of art.

    As for the illustrations its great but take life drawing classes a ton of them nothing beats life drawing.

    Use charcoal and such and get the flow of the value and form of the constructs.

    so far so good

    If you want to study some of the modern masters

    George Bridgeman
    Andrew Loomis
    Burne Hogarth

    Theres more but thats who i look into for the constructs and shapes and value and form etc... of the human body.

    Peace,
    Alex

    Be more patient! Rome wasn't built in a day, nor a week. My sensei in aikido always tells me how aikido is crap for self-defense for the first 2 or 3 years, but then it becomes really really good. You just have to keep practicing, be patient, and wait the beginning out. He compared it to the violin, its a very slow instrument to learn but it sounds incredible with enough practice. I like to believe Art is among these. Draw faces everyday for a year and see how good you get..and thats pretty short term too in the greater scheme of things..I mean you have your whole life ahead of you.

    It's not your art that needs improvement, that'll happen gradually over time, It's your attitude to art.
