    Self-Portrait. Not sure about the resemblance. Pretty messy and un-blended, I may take it further

    On the car and the Batman drawing, your rules of perspective are nowhere to be seen. There's no sense of volume or a coherent structure, for example with the car drawing, I can see your initial cuboid, but then it looks like you drew the car in one go. From the first box you should divide it up gradually, working from large to small. If it was a person you would start out by making the legs and the upper(head to hips) region roughly equal and then divide those sections up into head units and other familiar landmarks, all the while paying attention to your own perspective grid or indicators.

    The portrait is too small, but looks pretty decent. You are definitely improving when it comes to drawing people and using your tablet. But if you want to invent unusual shapes like cars/buildings/animals... you need to improve your basic perspective and sense of proportion. Keep going!

    That creature sketch is nice and clean, but colours are little pale. You could boos them up with two tools: selective colout and colour balance, really useful. experiment with that image can you boos colours more with those, could really help with digital paintings (i dont paint anything anymore without those)

    And posemaniacs 45-60 second could help i think too

    That creature could use a tad more contrast, it doesn't stand out from the BG. And keep watching those proportions. (Loomis has it wrong btw; real people tend to only be 7 to 7 1/2 heads) Have i told you that you've got good lines?

    Man Made God: Thanks Perspective has always been a very big gap for me. I understand all the rules yada yada but the image always looks distorted when I use it. Lately I've just been making lines up as I go. It's time to do some perspective studies I guess.

    Nettle_Mountain: Hey thanks, it really works And I'm desperately trying to get back into posemaniacs again

    sjuskadur: Thanks. That PS made me lol this morning haha.

    Walnut: Yeah I think it's recently become stark clear that I need to work on my perspective and proportion My worse fears! Cheers

    Not much of an update. Got a big block of traditional stuff to upload. Just playing with the colours as nettle said

    All of yesterdays drawings I really need to buy a scanner for my room. I'm using the scanner-printer combo downstairs, so it involves effort to run up and down, networking placing the files, the scanner is really slow etc etc. And if the whole scanning, moving, resizing, renaming procedure couldn't be made worse, there's the copyright details

    I might paint some eyes or something, start doing small parts of the face and piece it together in a no ref face before Christmas.

    Thanks for stopping by! You have great stuff comin' along here. It's obvious that you're working hard
    Personally what I think would do you good is if you loosened up a bit. Some of your drawings seem restricted by the fine lines you have. Too many fine lines makes it look less realistic so I'd suggest using shadows to define the masses.

    Hey man, thanks again for the comment in my SB. I really like the progress you're making. And while those studies are good, don't forget to have fun doing it, or you'll get stuck up. Man, you'll be rocking us all in time :c

    jackpot_anjr90: Yeah, I'm really not sure where to take my lines, will try to use less and see where it takes me

    algenpfleger: You came back! Yeah will do

    Fshoo: No problem, your work rocks. I always try and make my studies funner by throwing in some photo studies, they're my favorite

    Ok dude - bare with me if this seems a little simple but to start your perspective study on cars have a go at drawing your own version over what I've done here try to not copy exact or anything but use my pic as ref on a layer below (I've intentionally left a few obvious mistakes in the perspective for you to fix - wing-mirrors, spoiler etc). The aim is to help you visualize your object in 3D space and be creative with the details while obeying the rules of perspective - try to visualize each part of the car in it's own 3D perspective box (don't actually draw each box) but joined to each other rather than the whole car as one big box that needs to be carved away.

    Lol hope that makes sense!

    Well have a go and when you've done that have a go at doing what I've done but for me to paint over (at the moment lets keep the detail rough and simple) - I personally like to imagine the 2 vanishing points and lines while I sketch out the pic then draw the VPs in and fix up any off perspective in the drawing. This way it helps me not be too boxy and tied down.

    You've got a good study ethic - The way I'm hoping to help you get the hang of perspective should help you with your anatomy too. It's all about getting a picture in your head and seeing the structure of individual parts of the whole, then getting a feel for the placement of those in your own imagination's virtual 3D space.

    Have fun and lemme know any perspective specifics you struggle with.

    Cheers

    Edit: that black line across the top isn't the horizon line - it's just the edge of my drawing area in Adobe Illustrator
