    Damn kids!

    Hey you practice a lot. That's awesome. And I see you also do stuff from life, references and imagination. That's awesome too Do some more colored stuff though! It's a good way to learn about values and edges, much better than greyscale studies, and that knowledge will also help you with your penciling, and what you learn there will in turn make your painting better D: Lots of stuff to learn! Keep going!

    ManMadeGod: Thanks.

    Miles_: Thanks for taking the time, best crit ever. A lot to learn from the paint-over. I always worry about not leaving white in case it looks like the skin is darker. There will be so much to think about when it comes to rendering now, I'm just a little scared about applying it. Thanks

    Algenpfleger: Will give it a try man Thanks for taking a look!

    Angry Attatchment manager couldn't be more of a bitch right now

    Firstly, attachment manager. What the fuck's happened? I had to fill out copyright details for every single image to upload them, and the amount of times it just closed itself down and stuff. Secondly, these images look like I whored the whites, it's just the gaps I leave between lines over-exposed from the scanner!!!. Lesson learnt, I will tighten the lines together next time.

    bigfooTrooper: Agreed, way to sketchy at the moment. And yes, Miles has blessed us all with his presence on my SB

    From yesterday, attempted to pin down what Miles was saying. Not sure if I did.

    hhmm… I liked it better before that yellow dots…the colors are actually very good! get yourself some other fruits ( for the sake of change) and redo that exercise! fruits are good things to practice…

    next step would be going into detail…and maybe adding a clear flowing shape…

    in the end it all comes to practice practice practice!
    keep it coming

    And I can't win with rendering at the moment. In real life it looks too dark, and on the scanner there's loads of white that isn't actually there.

    Hmmm.....
    Looking good here sam
    Your improving alot
    Keep this up man but i really would advice drawing alot from imagination helps tons. Just really take your time on the studies no point in rushing them.
    For example, those bridgemans i doubt you learned much from them. Close your eyes and see if you can remember anything from them.... nothing to be able to apply to your art.
    Thing is there no point in wasting time doing a study that has no use when you do a study make the most of it and then apply it to your own stuff. Isn't that the whole point of studies?
    Just slow down
    Sorry if it was harsh just don't want you messing up like I did and hating art.
    Keep it up

    your apple looks like it has sprinkles on it.

    Id advice you to really look at the colour more when painting, as it may look like its a solid colour at first but it may have a slight shade of something else in it. or you use to strong of a colour which makes the whole thing look unnatural. anyways i can see you getting better so keep it up ^_^

    i would also advise watching your arms when you draw, sometimes their to long.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    When I said I'd hit a wall, I meant that I'd found myself suddenly very uninspired and very lazy It's coming back, I'm gonna go watch The Matrix to get some inspiration and then really hit the SB. It's been a month since I've started the SB Month 1 was about finding my feet, developing the basics of pencil rendering, anatomy and gesture. Month 2, I hope will be about developing some sort of basic understanding of PS painting, practice more faces, and to further push all of the things I'd learnt in month 1.

    lilnebo: Hmm sorry to deny crit but I really disagree with what you've said. For instance, I know from the top of my head that the last Bridgeman study was about reinforcing my knowledge of the structure of the forearm, a weak point for me. I just don't see how what you said really applies to me at all..

    My57: Haha thanks for the vote of confidence I tried to follow your advice but ended up with a very multi-coloured apple I do practice PS a lot but the results are usually far too embarrassing for me to even save.

    And without further ado, here's my drawings from the last 2 days

    Well, your dedication is definitely paying off. Personally, in drawing figures i find that it helps to have a good understanding of the underlying skeleton. Maybe it could be a good idea to focus on learning that? And if you worry about your proportions, you have to realize that it takes mots of time to get the hang of that. You'll get there one day, believe me.

    hey sam! I think your pencil rendering is improving already! go on like that!
    try and experiment with some diff. techniques (I gonna do that soon)
    like cross hatching, dunno if you do that already, looks like your using linear strokes so far... but as I said, It^s getting better!

    and listen to walnut, he^s a genius of a sort concerning figure drawing

    cheers buddy

    Walnut: Bah thanks so much Yeah I've really been slowing down too much on my figures lately because I don't really know how to make them better (not in an arrogant way, just not understanding how to improve,) so I think skeletal structure will help loads.

    bigfooTrooper: Thanks man I'll try and experiment with some different techniques sometime, it's just figuring out how they work really I'll pop round your SB, haven't been in ages.

    Well I'm ill again, just as I got out of my block yesterday, I wake up today feeling very very tired and very cold. I'm so frustrated with myself recently, I've lost all momentum. The moment I shift this bug I will be back on top form

    Yesterday I decided I sucked at faces so I did some study on hot supermodel's faces, it's a tough job but someone has to do it ha.
    This was my first page, it basically goes from left to right improvement wise.

    My57: Will do

    This isn't really an update, I just feel ashamed for not updating. My cold has gotten a lot worse, but I have drawings from yesterday to upload later on if I have the energy.

    Apple from mind. No idea why I tried this with no reference D:

    You got the pressure sense to work?
    Looking good i would just be laying down more *block* colours and then blending so that you get a feel for form, light and shadow from the beggining
    Ocing was fun we'll do it again
    Keep it up

    Keep it up bud, try not too think about things like artistic blocks ect. They are a seld furfilling prophesy. If you are worried you will get one, you will put too much pressure on yourself, then be dissatisfied and start thinking you are in an artistic block ect. Just keep doing whatcha doin its really working

    Lilnebo: No, I swear it doesn't have it I read the package and it never said anything about pressure sensitive levels at all. I just got a load of money from selling old stuff, so I may as well just buy a new one

    Miles_: Thanks man Had never really thought of it like that.

    Not being negative, I just never get round to improving stuff if I don't point it out. I want to work more in PS, leg length needs to be sorted (will memorise loomis head proportion system), Small heads (same solution), all my renders are really grey now, no contrast (make shadows darker) annnd SOMEONE TELL ME WHY MY RENDERS ALWAYS MAKE THE SKIN LOOK DARK

    I never do creatures Literally the first animal (sortof) I've ever drawn..
    Part of our challenge. I coloured it in colour pencils because PS scares me lol

    Well I never used to know tablets were even pressure sensitive until a few days ago. Tweaked mine a bit and got the pressure level working, and boy is painting a lot easier now. I'm no longer scared of my tablet.

    that is much better then your last apple. It looks a little pale though. Maybe more red in it? and the twig on it looks a little to thick.

    Please look at anatomy books more, your rib cages are way off in some picks. try to imprint the shape of every part of the human body into your head and it'll help you.

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    looking good, there is definite improvement page for page. I need to do anatomy studies too, must be a Sam thing (my name is Sam also.)

    I found that as soon as I got used to a tablet, it became insanely fun to use. Still not put up a lot of stuff I do in photoshop but I think working on random little projects helps.
    keep it up.

    Have a look at my sketchbook.

    SnobbyOo: Thanks. My proportions are pretty weak I admit, I'll get to work on that.

    Just doodlin today, experimenting with colour. Not really sure where to go now. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Started a painting. Trying to understand skin colour, but I really should have done a study on it D: I doubt I'll continue with this.

    Hey wow! You're doing very well! Especially since I notice improvement on one single page. I love how many sketches and drawings your doing. It both inspires me and makes me guilty that I haven't done as much.

    Keep it up, keep it up! You're goin' somewhere with all this, definitely.

    "Looking for critiques! Any help is appreciated."

    Yeah, when you're working on a weak point, simplify the subject. Don't try and render a human from a weird angle and imagination if you can't paint a simple pose from reference, start basic and work your way up lol. Plenty of progress though, those apples are good considering you only just got a fully functional tablet Keep putting the hours in!
