    Posemaniacs are done on scrap paper, sweet. I don't like wasting paper, and
    I don't like killing trees. Except for the shifty/ugly looking ones of course.

    You're doing live studies also.
    If you're not in the know, 'squinting' while painting helps a lot.
    Check out. http://clicks.robertgenn.com/praise-squint.php for one explanation.

    It's basically closing your eyes just enough for your eyelashes to block
    out what you're seeing. It definitely simplifies what I see.
    [Rubbing vaseline on an old pair of sunnies don't work. It just gives you a headache.]

    [ LG screen, ewwwww, I have one also, they're disgusting screens right? ]

    Keep up the studies mate.

    as i said, i had to do a lot for school since last thursday.
    well, i totally failed in school by holding a presentation
    but i was not my fault at all, i got misinformed by my teacher.here , my fault starts, ´cause NEVER; NERVER EVER say to a teacher that it was acctually his fault, partially
    he weats me down at all in front of class.we started argueeing till i got the chance to do it again.But i did all work for nothing!
    last days were just crap, didn´t want to draw or do anything!
    i´m still angry...till today,i plucked up my courage and took pencil and paper...and it was good to draw again, now i´m happy
    and here is the (little) work i did today.
    last one is done with Graphic tablett, i helped a younger girl and told her how to draw heads better(well, it´s not perfect of course)

    i kinda like that last one! dunno how to get good reflections on the water, im not that technical i'd say get some references for it? the boat itself looks nice, but you can detail it lots more! i think it misses some edges or something, looks a bit too vague, or too round. is it reffed or not?

    @ajevenema: i think you´re right, more detail would be good. concerning to your question: yes, i looked up a lot of pictures of the "bismarck" and pictures of fireing artillery/ships. so it´s not a copy
    sketches i´ve done at school and home.
    self-portair infront of the mirror better than i thought i could do.

    Very nice start. One thing I'd like to say is that whilst there's promise in your portraits and your pencil drawings there is a degree of fiddling needed, do you use a template when you start a drawing of face? It's worth getting accurate geometric shapes that represent features before drawing out definite line and shade. Also it might be worth getting a set of graphic pencils with varying softness, and you experiment with the tones. (Rather than using a HB)

    Whilst the posemaniacs drawing are showing improvement, have you been to any life drawing sessions?

    @kagemusha, thank you for your advide, that´s what i need.
    first, concerning to you question, no, i have never been to any life drawing session, i´m student at grammar school.but we have done some drawing from life in my art-lessons.now i use to draw mostly with template, for the faces weeks before i didn´t used a template, i know they look very crooked^^.

    today i tried another self-portrait from life(mirror), not happy with it, but i won´t give up.it really motivates to look again at the first page of my sketchbook!
    and i did a landscape-drawing, important to me was to reach a deepness with saturation, cuase i have huge problems in all of my drawing with the deepness.
    i have 2 versions, which one is better?
