    awesome painting! your painting style seems very good for putting down the lighting. to get that rid of fibery render, just paint over it with a quite large brush and with more than 50 (many use 100) % opacity (hardness seems a matter of preference). keep it up! (and don't make us miss that delicious accent of yours in the vent )

    Stole a digital camera, here is what I've been doing with pencils in the past 2 days.

    There were more bridgman studies, but sadly they came out really badly in the pictures so there wasn't much point in putting them in

    Wouldn't let me upload these three

    Spiffing start old bean!
    I think you have a real eye for colour and line, 2 months is nothing, and if you haven't been using your eyes or your hands in that way, I think they show great promise.

    Apart from suggesting the usual suspects; hogarth, bridgeman (whom you already seem to be investigating), loomis as guides on artistic anatomy and useful concepts...

    just (keep) play(ing) with your drawings, and perhaps spend more time on one, pace yourself, set yourself a goal.
    What do you wish to learn (proportions, value, composition, dynamics? EVERYTHING?) or how do you wish this particular drawing to look?

    Remember "Study without desire spoils the memory and retains nothing that it takes in", for the future!
    Perhaps think more along the lines of "I'm not trying to make finished pictures to view, but records of my thought processes to aid my understanding".

    Please... take my advice and make me a hypocrite for it, because I definitely need to take some of it myself.

    Edit: here's some links!
