    some good stuff since i last looked. pencil stuff is getting better.
    keep an eye out for when you shading the neck. some of those do look a little undefined at times.
    keep up the work man!

    Ha, i looked back at the first page again. Pretty amazing improvement in just one year.

    Clint study looks great. I dig your use of texture.

    Absolute great great progress. You should be an inspiration to lots of people here on CA. Listen, wouldn't you be interested in being in a sketchbook support group with me and Nkristian? You would make a good contribute. Say something

    Judging from the few pages I've looked over it seems to me that you don't spend enough time on your underlying forms. Your rendering is looking pretty good but there is a definite gap between your ability to draw the forms and your ability to render. Spend a little more time to accurately capture those forms.

    Rock on brother man!

    Hey Sam dude, Clint study is very good - I really think you've nailed the likeness but the image itself has been handled well. confident, not over-complicated or too simple and characterful brushstrokes.

    that Clint Eastwood portrait is quite good. It has a real likeness to him, good job.
    My observational skills may be great but I said nothing about my drawing skills

    Cool improvement Sam! The rendering is coming along nicely, and is something you should continue to work on. Everyone mentioning the forms is right, the problem is it is quite hard to give advice specifically on how to work on this. I think something that would help you is taking/ finding a lot of photoreferences of figures with large-medium amounts of foreshortening, and just sketching the overlapping forms. It will help you to understand and draw the more complex forms of the human body, like the shoulders and hips etc. To help understand the area a form occupies in 3D space, you may want to try sketching lightly the parts of the muscle you arent seeing, so when you draw something like the upper arm foreshortened, rather than seeing this as an extremely complex shape, try to build it up with '3D' looking shapes, and redrawing the contours that are visible. this may seem an exaggerated process, but it will really help with your understanding of structure.

    If you aren't sure what I'm going on about, because re-reading it, its not all that clear, I'll send an overpainting of a photo or something to show what I mean

    Heya dude, Cool update.
    About the wes studies. Your lines are all kinda blocky and shit. What i notice from wes's work is that he has a realy neat round clean feel to it. Try to capture that more and render more in curves and shit. Cool stuff on the body studies.

    Hey, massive improvement! I think a lot of your studies look great, you're a little harsh on yourself dude, or maybe that's good for motivation - at least you "learnt a lot" - hehe that's kinda my attitude actually Keep up the good work m8.

    jordyskateboardy: Thanks, I get you. That probably comes from trying to sketch in straight lines and get more structure, should smooth things off afterwards

    AlexTooth: Aha well I don't really get myself down by saying these things, just have to make sure you know why it doesn't look right I guess Cheers

    Some environment I knocked up, just playing around I guess

    indeed, compared to your other portraits, the light source is more clear. and the poses are more dynamic I guess. btw, they are far from being terrible. its good that you study from a man like wes, he really knows how to handle portraits

    I liked that environment too. maybe you could repeat that pillar several times to convey space more clearly. just a thought

    keep it up
