    I should refine the lines some more, since I was at different light source when drawing them.

    Nice lips, really clear and I can feel the mass in them.

    For your pencil drawings, I see one main thing that I think you can really have a breakthrough with if you do:

    Cleaner lines.

    At the moment, you draw very sketchily. While this is fine for some very rough quick studies, I think it would suit you a lot more if you really clean up your lines and take time and deliberate on them. The sketchy crosshatching is also doing nothing for you... there is a difference between sketchy hatching and rough hatching... you should try and get good at hatching before doing rough hatching though. Really think about the forms and planes of the face/figure you are drawing, and hatch to follow the form most importantly, and maybe the light as well. Try to evenly space your hatching... it seems that you're a bit impatient with it and you're just moving your pencil up an down. Get in there and take your time, the results will speak for themselves.

    Otherwise, I think your work looks really nice, just keep it up man. I'm here to help you improve .

    Thanks sebbonaparte, I'll try and work on more linal drawing excercises and see what happens.

    Since i'm in a rush since my time sketching is allways short in my non art school (That I rather not want to be in , I tend to rush either in panic or many circumstances.

    Can't update today, since I'm out to the theatre trip made by the college, will be back way too late to update.

    heya fitz!
    wow, lots of stuff here; and I think it has potential. I do have a bit of trouble reading your work though. because you're doing something I used to do as well; in case of doubt, add more lines!
    it does make your drawings easier to follow for the eye; because the eye always picks the line that makes most sense. but it makes the works less useful for learning material.
    you're not making the choice; you're leaving it up to the viewer. I'd really stop using multiple lines- at least for a while. use one clear, confident stroke per time. if its not right, leave it anyway. just try again next time.

    ooh yeah; did you know I'm a certified art-teacher? that's right. everything arty I say has been endorsed by the state of the Netherlands! (they'll be sorry soon)

    Since of the lack of time I have, I'm at this state where I must post less work.

    @Ashess, Yeah, I'm trying to go to rehab on of the drug of Bad clarity.

    Will post critiques soon... 5 minutes left to be on this thing!

    Had great fun drawing the actors and the Startford shakespere globe theatre. They kept moving so had to finish it from memory. One on the right had the most success.

    I love that we are polar opposites in our linework. Yours seems very creative and freehanded, which is what I like about it. You focus more on the shapes and masses and what's really there than with overly refining things in the sketch stage. I wish I could do that! =P Sometimes it can make some of the forms difficult to read, though. Try picking out the lightest areas when you're sketching from life/photos and then leaving them as the base paper color. It might help your sketches read a bit more clearly.

    Yeah Mock, I really should understand tones and there meanings more.

    After a busy day, It was somewhat pleasent day since it had a massage and a lovely cultural event about clowns.

    Working on lines and clarity.

    I really like the student head, I'm doing this sculptural study of an egytian head to help me understand planes, will post it soon.

    Most of these are from life alongside some memory.

    Nice work man, it's great that you draw from life so often.

    I see improvement in your shading, but I would continue to do those ink exercises from the mentoring thread, those really seemed to help on the two portraits of the acting group members... those ones are nice.

    I also think it would be worth it to try sketching with charcoal. You're loose style could really be reinvigorated with how great charcoal works for laying down value quickly, which seems to be what you're trying to do with graphite. If you don't have some, invest in a couple of HB charcoal pencils. I think you would find a lot of success with that medium.
