    I would highly recommend drawing from life more often. It'll help you apply form to your figures better.

    That said, the line quality is great.

    Hi again Jeremy!

    Your studies are coming along well, but bear in mind that when drawing from life it's not always about getting it "right", but also about interpreting the subject and often bringing out what is striking about your model.

    Branch out from time to time also! Do a still life of things like toys or models, draw a scene from a dream - every little bit helps. Expand your visual vocabulary!

    I certainly agree with what Ninjacat11 and crossmirage are saying.

    Drawing from life helps you observe and become more acutely aware
    of the nuances of life. Also drawing extensively from life will help
    you get looser with your drawing, more gestural and flowing.
    Your drawings are very stiff and rigid. You need to let go of the fear
    of not getting something right. Just don't worry about how it turns out.

    Like crossmirage mentions, drawing still lifes such as toys or models
    will improve your ability to see the planes and light on the object to
    get a better contrast.

    I'm beginning today to draw from life more (hopefully every day) I'll eventually be doing a series of self portraits and portraits of other people, but for now I'll just be doing simple still life drawings and then go on to more advanced ones, followed by drapery and cast studies. I'll also try drawing people when I'm out more often. Here's an update.

    What delineates a simple still life from an advanced one?
    One still life is no more difficult than another.
    Drawing is drawing and it is the way you look at the subjects
    you are interpreting on a 2-dimensional surface.

    I would recommend getting "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain"
    by Betty Edwards. ISBN # 0-87477-424-1
    This book teaches you how to see when you draw.
    It has proven techniques that will improve your observational
    aptitude, and help you gain a better knowledge of your subject.

    Good updates. Although I still see stiffness and some of the people
    you are drawing look flat. the last still life is way out of perspective.

    Thanks for the advice. I might check that book out.
    By simple still life, I mean simpler subjects in the still life. For example, it's easier to draw a cube than a typewriter lol.
    And yeah, I sometimes draw people flat on purpose if I'm just studying their clothing or something.

    Nice update. Well, as what everybody has said, draw from life more! Mind for the proportion, and stroke as less lines as possible wit more thickness variation. Your base lines seems nice but after you thicken it, it became stiff. As for the still life, one object still count as a still life, so if you are bored of drawing cubes and other primitives, but finds that drawing pots and typewriter in arrangement too hard, draw an object at a time, focus on the shape's structure and how the light fall on one particular material.

    But in all, you just have to keep at what you're doing right now. You'll be good

    I didn't finish this one, but I have many more digital tutorials to go through at the moment to learn technique and process, so I won't be doing a lot of finished digital stuff any time soon (just learning the basics still)

    I want to see a finished digital painting, or drawing.

    The eye sockets on this anime character should be darkened
    quite a bit more to push the eyes back into the skull.
    The skin need a more natural color, not so pale.
    Good attempt though, I see that you're paying attention to
    lighting and proportions.

    Here's an update of more studies. Planning on doing some finished still life drawings sometime next week, and I should have some gouache portrait and still life studies up in the next two weeks.

    Hey bro

    Nice selection of sketchwork. Try to play with the line width for some added depth. I wouldn't wait until next week though, try to draw something on your table as a still life, in natural light preferably.

    Keep working hard. =)

    Thanks guys, since I don't have homework this weekend I'll try to get some still lifes done by Monday and post them up. Maybe even a cast study from life too.

    I agree with Kungfoowiz. Vary your line widths and add depth by using a natural pencil
    instead of a mechanical pencil sometimes. It will improve on your
    drawings greatly.

    Daily still lifes - even a small object would be fine.

    good, hard work going on here jeremy. You are definitely improving in great strides. be careful with your faces though, some of them lack a bit of bone structure giving them a very elastic feel, especially in the area around the eyes. Don't underestimate those eye sockets! they can really help solidify a face.

    I like that you're starting to work with still lives. I've been trying that recently.

    I think paying more attention to proportions and structures is well worth the effort. Keep drawing man!

    Good job on the Dante,
    one thing to note, his mouth looks too straight.
    This is great practice for you.

    Lets see those new still lifes.

    Hey, the cast drawing is looking ok, I like how you're hard and soft edges. You could try ramping up your darkest darks and lightest lights in the drawing I feel. I know, it's something which I'm struggling with as well, but more contrast is needed imho.

    Painting, I can't really offer much advice to you, as I don't know too much about it myself, but I think you could benefit from having more edges in the blue man painting above. At the moment you seem to have a lot of soft, smooth and rounded edges. A few hard edges could add some interest and suggest some form. As I mentioned though, I can't offer much specific advice other than what I'm doing at the moment.

    Thanks kungfoowiz, I definitely agree. I need to definitely have more contrast in that piece and a cast shadow / background (I need to learn to judge my values when drawing in dim lighting)

    As for the painting, yeah I definitely should watch my edges, though that painting (sketch) was done in like 20 minutes and I wouldn't even consider it a finished sketch (I'd need to spend hours on my paintings for them to seem decent probably, but I'll try to post up more finished digital stuff in the next few months)

    Okay, keep the subjects simple though, months sounds like a long term thing. Anyway, just keep the goal realistic and most importantly have fun over anything else.
    Looking forward to your next piece. =)
