    Great to see you tackling the persp again and again. I have a suggestion tho.
    If you keep 2 vanishing points fairly close on the screen you will get huge distortions just like you did get here. The hard part is putting them way beyound the page which automatically makes it feel more natural.

    The best excersise for starting out is trying to draw perfect cubes in space, different angles, point of view etc. Try avoiding those huge distortions tho.

    Anyway, good stuff D.

    I am very glad that I have cheered you up a bit.
    It's a nice thing that you are working on the perspective
    field also and that you are trying out some new variations.
    The general idea is to experiment all the time, do something
    that you did not done before, and I mean that same theory
    applies to real life. Cause if we always do what we always done,
    we will always get what we already got.
    Smart talk was never meant for me,
    but what I was trying to say is
    that you are doing good
    and you are evolving well.
    Simple as that.

    portrait studies, concentrating on construction and the feel of each individuals face, helps to try to get the feel of how things look instead of copying every each feature.

    As Ice mentioned the vanishing points on the 2 pt perspective are too close together.

    One thing that can be helpful when your drawing 2 pt perspective on paper is a recession grid, so you can place one of the vanishing points way off the page, but still measure it accurately so all the lines will properly trace back to the vanishing point

    Beautiful faces!

    Let me suggest that you try to bring your perspective studies and your
    figure studies together...meet in the middle.

    On your perspective studies try to work quickly and freehand, try to let
    it become a matter of judgement and instinct rather than and intellectual
    puzzle. Do some sketches of simple forms in the 3D space, then try
    combining them together, rotating them and re-drawing them from
    multiple angles.

    On your figure studies, take your time, try to work slowly and thoughtfully.
    Really understand the forms and foreshortening, work on making your lines
    clean and confident. Start with the greatest simplification of the forms as
    possible, then work in more anatomical subtle details.

    Those owl studies look beautifully, but I'd like to see some analysis of the
    forms
    , not just a faithful copy of the image.

    P.S. thats a pretty badass cottage and duckpond for a 3-year-old!

    Hellyeah Danny's improving!
    I love the faces some posts above. Man, hands down, you improved your head drawings so much in the last year. The Owl studies are also very, very good!
    Oh and for Painting maybe you should take some serious looks into Richard Schmid's Book "Alla Prima - Everything I know about Painting" which I will buy as fast as possible. It's worth every penny and a lot more!!

    Keep it up my friend!

    "cant believe it but I finally understood what rhythm means" CAN YOU EXPLAIN IT TO ME PLZ?
    Hehe. I've come to believe that rhythm is one of the most completely fundamental aspects of art.
    Certainly to the aesthetic aspect of art (which is to say the nature of Perception at its most basic level).

    Some time when you have some time to burn (hehe) you might check out the book Art and Visual
    Perception: A Psychology of the Creative Eye
    by Rudolf Arnheim. Its a really a uniquely artistic
    and comprehensive look at the study of perception.

    Great work, awesome to have some days to just work, eh? I am taking 2 weeks vacation in july to draw and
    I CAN'T WAIT!

    Great work, as usual, Danny.

    Girl in the last painting: Rendering an proportions look good but there's something
    weird about the shadows. I think especially her head should be casting more of a
    shadow on her neck, give it more separation and depth.

    Also, try to avoid over-using individual strands of hair...its really hard to do right in a painting.
    Instead, where the hair becomes loose and tangles, try making more blurry, like smoke, blending
    into the background or into the skin tone.

    In general I think you could really benefit from some studies of form shadows. You seem a little
    unsure in the way that you use them, at the moment.

    Other then that:

    - Try using bigger bolder brush strokes, avoid lots of small fussy strokes.

    - push your values (especially darks) and try to keep clear separation between your
    value groups (IE lights and darks should not be too close together in value)

    - as always, take your time. Especially in paintings there's a lot of value in piling on the
    mileage on one image. Even if it doesn't turn out the way you want it to, you will learn more.

    You're relentless man, getting better every day!

    garboz Thank you for dropping by and I am glad to hear you are inspired by my progress

    BludHund dude what can I say you point out exactly what needs to be pointed out, maybe you should consider becoming an art instructor in the future?
    Thank you for the reminders and pointers bro i'll keep those in mind!


    Alright I got some cool news I got a part time job as an art instructor with a big company that distributes all the major paints and pencils such as Grumbacher and Ko hi noor pencils. I will be doing art classes at the Michael art store. as starters I will be teaching Acrylics and than probably pencils and oils and stuff. I can sure use the extra income atm...

    I am still unhappy with how I draw heads so I decided to analyze myself and turns out I needed to go back to the basics, stop rushing and be gentle with the pencil and loosen up. being self taught sure has its bad habits.

    I also noticed I don't know how to draw the ear... it seems I was avoiding it for all these years, all I needed was a two page study and now I know how to draw an ear.

    Venderpool really helped me to strengthen the basics of facial features, excellent book.

    Ordered a book stand from Amazon, it is sooo useful.

    Hey man thanks for the comment. You have a death grip on those studies, great workload. I think the changes to the Chow are an improvement. Try twisting the torso or not rotating the head quite as much as it looks very uncomfortable, like assuming she could rotate it that far around, she would have a very uneasy look on her face. Look at the reference again and see the difference in the head position. Also try and get some more plains in the face, at the minute its very idealistic and almost childlike. Have a look at all the subtle changes in the photo ref. All in all its' a cool design, i like the ball thing, i think it'll be a great portfolio piece if you fix a few things.

    Peace!

    Thanks Chris, I noticed the problem with the head and its too late now to fix it as I will have to repaint the head and readjust its angle, I'll just move on to a new piece and learn from my mistake


    Some WIP environment that reminds me of flying toilet seats and some thumbnails I did to get some ideas of what I had in mind and a Chow WIP.

    That book stand, is it custom made or you just bought it? I'd love to get one.
    I recently slack less and sue books more, that's why ^^'

    I wrote it on your blog already, but this page shows a ton of progress. better porportions, better values, better colors. Everything IS getting better.

    Wish you could attend some lifedrawing, but knowing how your job looks like it's not really an option isn't it? :/

    Have a nice day D.

    Hi!

    Great sketchbook you have here.

    I'm a fan of the gnome design for this weeks character challenge. I like that you decided to do a non-elf character. There seem to be a bias for elves in general

    Big respect to the people who update on a regular basis, and
    keep the work pace at high level, you are representing a huge
    motivation, I admire.

    #964-965 A certain dose of epicness can be found in
    your owl studies and full paintings above, you have done the eyes
    the best on them, but generally my favorite one is the Legend of the
    Guardians one. Looking so proud and royal, he is totally ready to
    take a bullet or an arrow to his shielded chest. Death of honor
    and bravery will be his end. Maybe the black rims around his
    beautiful yellow eyes are a bit too much, but other than that this is
    a stellar piece.

    #966 I can surely tell you that your face drawings are
    improving and the collab with your 3 year old is a piece to be
    framed, and a true proof that sinergy does exist.

    #969 On to the female with the sword and owls on her head and shoulder;
    I do like how you do armors and swords, I told you that before, but
    the hot spot on this one is her breast armor, that thing makes
    me excited, and makes me to imagine how her breasts act
    behind the plate. Very good job, except the ground, which
    looks a bit messy at this point.

    #970 Portrait from imagination; when you do portraits,
    I would suggest that you save the biggest contrast
    and highlight for the eyes, they are the mirror of the soul, also try
    to work on rendering hair. Doing greyscale studies are always a good
    idea, you did a right step. Sorry to hear what happened to your eye, I also
    hate injuries, but I am getting them almost weekly, and yes they can ruin
    my evening, my week, my everything, and art automatically goes down
    the drain. But I am glad that you are ok now.

    #972 The doodle doodle beast is a promising concept,
    if I could suggest anything here, is that for you to
    train more dynamic poses, from references and from imagination both.
    Let’s say 10 poses per day for two weeks would be totally enough to make
    a huge difference in the final outcome.

    #974 The portrait with a strangely positioned
    head came out very good, plus the Rocket Explosion is very exciting, is
    that you on the video?

    #976 Judging from your next environment and droid
    painting, I think that the biggest problem represented to you is putting
    the right contrast on the right places. Definitely more black and white
    paintings I would suggest, I think that will help you tremendously.
    Doing environments can be fun, and I think that as I remember, you
    have to have a foreground, middleground and background or something
    like that, and as far the objects are away they have less and less contrast
    and they fade away in opacity.

    #978 Portrait LOTR the avengers, the first is pretty,
    the weak point is the hair once again, plus watch for hard and soft edges.
    The other three portraits below are done outstandingly and I think my favorite
    is the female on the far right and the guy (Thor?) in the middle. These
    moments are the best ones, when you realize that you have improved, almost
    overnight, fascinating, I am very proud.

    #979 The knight doodle looks pretty much
    ok, vibrant colors, but I think that you got lost somewhere in the middle,
    cause you were not sure how should the helmet actually look. I would
    do graphite pencil helmet designs a few of them on resting days, If I would
    go into armor design direction. Also some rim lights around the shoulders
    and under the armpit would look great, would make the viewer to realize
    some more details about this knight like creation.

    #980 The next portrait without reference is heading in a better ways than before,
    the hair is a bit better than you did them earlier. The mouths red and the
    eyes green is a bit too saturated considering to the rest of the skin, just
    a thought, maybe I am wrong. P.S. I saw that BludHund gave you
    some good hair painting tips.

    #983 Congrats on the part time job, will be fun for sure, plus the
    extra income, yeeees. Indian girl is cool, black and white studies,
    very good, and the contrast is much better. Eye positioning in
    the eye sockets are a bit strange, but not a major issue. Oh,
    and the hair is also looks much more convincing, great job.
    The chow is good, I liked her with the big gun, there was
    something magical, small girls with big guns. It’s just me.

    #984 With these pencil faces and gestures you definitely stepped
    up to another level, clear and sharp improvements. I would like
    you to keep this pencil style, cause it looks very very good.
    I see you struggled with the face on the digital painting, but
    I guess it’s just tells you that rotated heads and heads in
    perspective could challenge you and can mean that it’s a weaker
    spot of yours. More practice and everything will be fine I suppose.

    #985 CHOW time; now you see I like this version also, but
    I was preferring the gun action. Her head and face angle,
    somehow does not goes with this body, it’s like pasted on,
    something is very strange, it’s almost like her head is
    turned around toward the backside of her body. But
    I totally like her curves and positive attitude.

    #986 I like the consistence and the effort that you
    implement in your studies, plus your workspace looks ace.

    So that’s it, I tried to cover up my time that I was not
    visiting your book, I hope this wall of text will help
    you at least a bit. I was motivated to review your latest
    improvements, was a pleasure and I enjoyed it.
    I hope that you and your family are fine and that
    you will improve even more. I wish you all the best
    and good luck with the next chow. Till next time buddy...
