    Update:

    I drew this using whit's sketchbook for reference, it's amazing how he uses so little lines to create that, so i'm using this methods to get better at my work.
    also, i bought my first Moleskine it cost $32, which was a lot.. but thankfully , if you spend over $30 you can get a panda plush toy for $10 (down from $20) so i got that too

    first and formost, i appologise for all my blurry photos..
    last night i went to Contrast Symphony I met Herman NG/Openanewworld and Adam Nichols they are both great artists and gave me some wonderful tips and inspiration
    I also met Muzz who set up the Contrast Symphony and introduced me to Adam and Herman.
    I drew my first model, she was topless at first but then was costumed.
    i'm happy with what i got but i have to slow down and draw lighter. this was my first drawing in my moleskine and i love the moleskine, the texture that you draw on feels so much better than regualr paper and it's just great
    Also i added an older acrylic painting

    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.
