    supsup hala, sorry to hear the depression kicking in, the weather ain't helping either i bet, but hope things get better!

    great update, i'm liking the variety and that you're challenging yourself to think in different ways, I can definitely relate and my mind is all over the place, as for thumbnail'ng you should definitely check out feng zhu (i think i'd sell my kidney to attend his school of design out in singapore, hehe) or syd mead, they are just too f*#(ng awesome and i think they have tutorials over at g_nomon

    I really like the horned girl sketch, there's good rhythm and foreshortening going on in the pose to make it interesting!

    Hala: i just don't know where to really start when drawing a face--any advice?
    i always felt starting with the big shape is the most important, so finding a center line and the width (usually 5 eyes across) and relative length is a good point to start but not hardset rule

    mouth starts at about a little under 1/3 the distance between the nose and the chin

    the placement of the eyes are generally, inner eye starts where the outer nose begins, the outermost portion of the lips starts halfway into the eye, the length of the ears are generally between the eye and the bottom of the nose

    the angle of the head in terms of facing down or up can be figured out by looking at the placement of the ears, if the head is facing down the top of the ear will generally be a bit above the eye and if it's facing up the top of the ear will be below the eye

    don't forget also to practice contour drawing as well, that way it'll help build confidence in your strokes

    keep up the great studies!!!

    Jailhouseeeee: hahah thanks man! Hogarth is the man, I so wish I knew about Hogarth and Bridgman way earlier in my life xD, i;m glad you like the horned girl too! thanks so much for looking!

    Snootchyyyy: Thanks! I'm definitely gonna find some time this week to sit down and do a long self portrait with your advice in mind. And thanks for the links man! I had been on feng zhu's page a couple weeks ago but didn't see the workshops and stuff on the other site. I'm def. gonna indulge in some serious environment tutorials

    Grandmasssaa: yeah man! thanks!! Hahaha I'm glad you like them!!

    strings: Thanks, i'm glad!! I know i have a long way to go still, but that encouragement helps a lot!

    Quikenobi: Thanks man! Hahaha, what you don't agree with the ukranian cheeks? Lol my self portrait doesn't look too much like me, but I def. got puffy cheeks xD and i'm glad you like that piece! thanks !



    Whew, so yesterday, i found out i won a scholarship i applied for, and they gave me more money then the original amount was supposed to be! : D So i'm feeeling elated that there's a couple hundred dollars off my tuition costs ^^ I've also been able to get outside to excersize and go for walks---It has a massive effect on my mood and my art--I think you can tell xD

    So here's a big dump because my bf was sleeping this morning so Id idn't get to talk to him, so i looked around, and suddenly something clicked and I cranked out a bunch of pieces that I'm not too ashamed of. I still need a TON of work, but I feel like i'm on a new wave of motivation.

    And my self portrait is a bit lame and lopsided, but i will work on that and keep trying to get the hatching to match the planes of the face.

    the illustation with the blue guy is brillant! ( But the blue guy has no neck, It's strange)
    The figure drawings are good, keep draw
    In the last portraits may be the eyes are too big

    great update hala, really liking the quick gestures, looks like your paying more attention to the contours and less etched out then previous ones, also liking the attempt to work in color, keep the goodies coming!!

    Hey I just saw in another thread that your going to the Tyler School of Art. I didn't know there was anyone on these boards who went there. I'm about an hour away from philadelphia and I was very close to going there, it was one of my final choices, but I ended up opting out and going up to new york. I hope your enjoying your time there and everything is going well.

    Your gesture drawing is coming along nicely.. Now you just need to develop patience

    Your hatching seems rushed, so maybe taking your time on it will pay
