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, īcause 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, didnīt want to draw or do anything!
iīm still angry...till today,i plucked up my courage and took pencil and paper...and it was good to draw again, now iīm 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, itīs not perfect of course)

at the moment iīm too lazy to scan my scraps i did on paper.
here is jst my latest drawing( battleship bismarck) , 2 h.
i wanted to play with the light, but iīm not happy with it (specially shadow and light, e.g. on the water, but i donīt know how to do better.
If you have tipps, please tell me

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 youīre 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 itīs not a copy
sketches iīve 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, thatīs what i need.
first, concerning to you question, no, i have never been to any life drawing session, iīm 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 didnīt used a template, i know they look very crooked^^.
today i tried another self-portrait from life(mirror), not happy with it, but i wonīt 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?
