Oh no, I never knew there is a p. OH!!!!OH!!!!OH!!!! OMG!!!!!
Yeah, they're blurred because they're more supposed to be color studies. When I try to add details, I just feel that I am somehow not able to carry on any further. Oops.

Thanks bushido, angry flippino. I will.
I feel bad for not updating for so long, I still draw everyday, but scanning and resizing can take so long that I don't want to update.
I am following Gary's complete guide to facial expressions. That book is awesome, learned so much about the face. My portrait skills improved a lot, I spent 15 minutes to draw my friend from life and brought to a party, everyone recog[nized it. Yeah!
So[ there are some digis.....
Orange study done in LAB colorspace, this is so hard.

You might want to do some reading up on painting techniques, colour theory, values etc. It doesn't look like you're aware of hard, medium hard, medium soft and soft edges right now. I won't take the time to explain it now, because it's already been explained in many books like Creative Illustration and Eye of the Painter by Loomis. Also, pay more attention to values. It would help you a great deal now if you if you just did black and white paintings. It gets you thinking more about values which are much more important than colour. Colour always comes second to value.
If you aren't already, look at a lot of art, not just modern artists. I've learned a tonne just from looking at Sargents drawings. Every time I look at them I learn something new about rhythms, anatomy, light, pencil techniqe, quickly throwing in a hand or a face, etc. Not a bad idea to do studies of other master drawings either. You learn a lot that you would not learn working from life or photos. I've even copied quick 2-5 min drawings by Sargent. It helps me understand what makes his lines so apealing, how he quickly throws down ideas without rendering the shit out of them etc.
You also should get more in depth with your anatomy studies. Like, figure out where the teres major connects and where exactly your trapezius over laps sort of in depth.
You're on the right track though, keep it up.

It does not matter if you can't or simply don't post everyday, but what does matter is that you are pushing you harder and harder. Keep doing those studies, they will pay off

Three things I like. You started this sketchbook on Feb 11th, and already have two pages - it's great to see you working hard! Second, yesterday's post shows some great lines in those gesture sketches - the women and child sketch has lines far and away better than what you've done before.
Third, I see a love of art that makes everything around you exciting. An orange, a banana, art you find online. Never lose your love of art! Now, on to some suggestions:
1. facial structure. If you want to have killer portraits, you need to know how to build up a realistic head. Here are a couple tutorials from one of the greatest artists I know, Nathan Fowkes. Study them in detail, and practice the technique at least 100 times between now and next month:
2. Don't pass over Loomis. He's an excellent writer, as well as artist, and you can learn a great deal from him.
3. Try sketching more people from life. It's more helpful than studying photos. That said, there are also tons of great photo ref's on the net, especially on deviantart.com. I'm a bit hesitant sending links to pics of naked people to a minor, but you know, get your parents' permission and such, and then start drawing.
4. If you haven't poured through these sketchbooks, you'll learn a ton about anatomy:

I admire your studies a LOT.
If you're able to see a pose in your mind, be sure to get it on paper fast!
You've worked a lot with SHAPES and the human body, and I think it's time you can move up.
Definitely work with muscles and their structure and function.
Something I just learned: when you are directing a pose, find the strongest motion in the picture and base everything from this motion. It helps to add drama and really capture the movement. Just be sure to work this into the whole body, and understand that every body part is relative to another! ALWAYS!
Okay, this sounds like a whole lot now, so I'll move out!
I'll be back, I think you'll make some excellent shots with all this study.
Keep having FUN,
