    pandah~~

    good to see youre doing plenty of sketching, but it looks like you are going way too fast. you said you took 4 hours on that sketch of the dude in the metalic looking suit, and it really shows. it looks like you really focused on getting a nice polished drawing rather than just going as fast as you can. this was a problem i had when i started out too. i would see professional artists sketch like the wind, but when i tried, it never came out the same. its very important to take your time.

    slow down and really analyze your shapes, think about the relationship between the shape you are drawing, and the shapes around it. think about the line you are going to draw before you draw it, and then draw that line with confidence (draw it really lightly if you have to, then go back over it darker if it came out right). do this enough and over time you will get faster naturally. it takes time, but speed does eventually come.

    Dude, you are progressing well and it takes time, there is no point in beating yourself down with "terrible" or "fail" or anything like that, I know sometimes you may get discouraged but remember that no one was born an awesome artist, it was built layer after layer day after day, its a constant fight so be positive and don't stop drawing.
    even when you think your stuff look like hamster pupu you are learning something, and many times you are not even aware of that but your mind is.

    Nice to see an instantly recognizable Andrew Loomis study in your last post! I spend so much time looking at his diagrams that I forget how appealing his finished art is. Are you using his methods/doing his exercises?

    Was that your first oil "ever" or "in forever?" Either way, it looks good. You should keep painting and stop beating yourself up (as Danny_K said). The more time I spend around experienced artists, the easier it is to think my art sucks, so I know the feeling. But calling it "terrible" in your own sketchbook doesn't help. If you must make judgments, write something specific about what makes it unsuccessful- skewed features, incorrect anatomy, etc. That way you identify your weaknesses, rather than chip away at your confidence.

    Check out my Sketchbook and I promise I'll return the favor.

    nice stufff
    youre doing everything right, just keep the drawings up
    perhaps give more specific studies a go? for example, do a page of hands etc


    pandawhipped is right about slowing yoruself down, before long you wont even realise how long youre taking on them and you will gradually get faster

    keep it up

    Take your time with studies. Maybe look at a reference picture and try to draw it right to the best of your ability, don't worry about trivial stuff like how long it will take to finish. Quality over quantity etc. You are doing well with the studies, keep it up and you'll be a master before you even know it. The main thing is that you have fun while doing it.

    yo Pandah. those studies are looking great.

    as far as your drawings in general, id try to work on starting super light, drawing in the basic shapes that make up the body (cylinders and stuff. like a really really basic robot.) and then, a little darker, define those parts as the bicep or calf or face or chest or whatever. if you do this before you go dark, youll get chance to look at a figure and be critical (does his arm look too long, are his feet too small, whatever) then you go dark. it will look cleaner and more accurate

    keep it up man, your doing awesome. ill be around soon to see how your progressing!

    Cool still life! Make sure to check your drawing before you start painting tho, there are some perspective issues in the box... Good work though, you're going to learn a lot from those, and I bet you already have .
