kyubisharingan Thank you! Lots of practice. The face is hard to draw, I have a bunch of face sketches I don't show because they look horrible lol. Andrew Loomis has a book called "Drawing the head and hands", you should check it out. Also drawing self portraits help too.
Something different for tonight

Yo rustveld, great improvement in your drawings since first post,
i really like your girls, maybe you could try some different origins in your faces
if you want to make them different, some asians, african, peruvian etc..
and/or stylise them a little while keeping your vision of beauty,
anyway, the eye study is great too, keep on sharing!

That last one of the rat was just a bit blurry, but on the whole I think you're really on the right track. Your digital work is definitely improving rapidly, and I can tell you're doing plenty of studying. your traditional work, however, seems like it could use some work. I strongly encourage you to work simultaneously on improving both, neither more than the other, since the things you learn from either are invaluable to the other. IF you focus on only one, you end up lopsided like me, with a handicap to overcome on the other.
Keep working! This is impressive!

Hey bouroune, Thanks man, it's always nice to hear that people see improvement. I'm definitely going to try out some different origins like you suggested, I know I have some lying around, but I'll have to do more.
I'm glad someone noticed the eye, thanks again!
radioblur I see what you mean about the mouse, I did have a sharper version but decided to stay with the blurry one. Thanks for the great advice, I noticed too that my traditional work hasn't been improving as much as I would like. It's like you say, I usually only focus on one and end up lopsided. Right now I've really been into working traditionally and I'm not as comfortable working digitally anymore. Working simultaneously is a good idea, but I usually get obsessed with one thing and forget the other.
I will and thanks!
I'm really bad at this updating thing... got used to lurking again, but I'm still drawing almost everyday.
I've really been into pencils these past weeks. I'm really trying to push my faces and expressions. I also found some sketches I forgot about. The first 3 sketches are the latest from last and this week. The other 2 are from August I think (I should really start putting dates on these stuff) . The last one is from way back, character concepts for Team Chow 1 that we never finished.
If it's not too much trouble I'd like to ask what if their faces tell you anything?
Critique would be nice too!

Hi Rustveld; nice sketchbook! Your still-lives are good (foremost those from #10 and #41- it's a pity you did not work out the one with the hand!) The characters you draw and their anatomy are awesome; I especially like the girls - very sexy!

First pretty neutral. Maybe little playful with those half closed eyes.
Second pretty neutral.
Third is happy. Wide open eyes.
Fourth is neutral, distanced, cold.
Critique: Hmm... Yeah... I've got nothing. =P
Can you please upload your pencil rendering skillz somewhere? Zipped maybe.

AWESOME pencil drawing a few posts up! And confident drawing in general. It seems that on some, you're more focused on the effect of the light, while in others you're more focused on meticulous drawing and details. Is that correct? If so, which do you prefer?
