    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

    red: thanks! and I'm glad you feel inspired Figure studies are great!

    twan: thanks! yes, he has no neck i need to learn how to draw necks on uber buff men xD Hahah and yes I think you're right about the eyes--definitely not the right size!

    Grandmassa: Thanks man!! hahah keep it rocckkkkinnnN!!

    papervampire: thanks so much! Hahah yes, hogarth! And thanks for the tip about HB pencils, I've been using that more now and trying to get my values mostly that , it's tough but good practice.

    snootchy: thanks man, I do try to keep in mind what you told me about paying attention before putting a stroke down, and I finally feel like I'm able to break down the body better in the gesture sketches thanks!

    Pyro: Well at least it's nice to know another person in the tri state area! Thanks for stopping by!

    double: Oh wow >W< thanks! I feel very honored!

    quikenobi: thanks! yes, I do. I rush a lot of things >< And that self portrait i will admit was very sloppy and rushed. I'm gonna try and put some more time and quality into my works now.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    woo, 3rd page, and I definitely did not expect this many people to crit and support me--you guys are awesome and inspiring!!

    Didn't have much time today, migraine and taking care of my bro.
    I've been listening to what you guys are saying and have decided to get down and dirty with some serious quality studies. I might return to some of these studies because I'm not very satisfied with them.

    and a WIP of my second newborn entry, my first was mega fail xx

    the close up is a small sargent study

    edit: ewwww why does my sargent study look like g.bush ? T___T

    Cool update hala. I've seen 2 sp's from you, not sure if there are more. I like em and I reckon you should do a few but render them out more. I like coming to this s'book. See soon.

    yo Hala, awesomeness, I really like the first study, i think the proportions and pose is done really well so great job on that, also the contour gestures are looking better and better! I think your capturing more of what the quick gestures are for, just help u loosen up, i mean for a 1 minute quick gesture sketch you're not going to end up with a masterpiece but just a few lines that you can walk away with that appeal.

    as for the Sargent study, I don't think it's a bad attempt, I think before getting into values or any of that, try and lay down the line sketch fairly lightly, because when u go back into rendering the forms out with hatching, u don't want those lines to show through and appear more like a painting rendering where edges (not lines) define the form. Also a quick note on hatching, when you first start out, it really helps to stick with one direction before getting more crazy hatches going on, simplify as much as you can and then build up. I know this may sound weird but they tell you to hatch with the form but I think it gets really confusing and laying in the first hatch in same direction for a flat light value (for the first pass) actually helps a lot to see clearly what you're trying to accomplish in terms of value study when u get to rendering a sketch.

    Hope this g'berish helps!!

    You have a good eye for spatial relationships, but your line quality and confidence in the form is a wee bit skittish, confidence will come in time. You have talent, and it's apparent in your art, keep going you'll be great one day!

    I like the Sargent study. For a crit, his face seems a bit asymmetrical (but I don't know what image you're working from, maybe that's in the original?).

    Hey, nice work in here so far! I was the same way when I first got to art school; I had just realized that was what I wanted to do for a living, and I realized how little I actually knew!

    I found this to be an advantage though. Because while I was working hard all through school to catch up, the people who were better were not improving very much at all, simply because they already thought they were good enough. Make sure you keep this healthy attitude of wanting to learn learn learn! And soon you will be top of the class!

    jigje: thanks I definitely will be doing more sp's, I jut gotta really work into my schedule so they are not rushed and sloppy

    snootchy: thanks man! though i still feel like that study needs work xP Should I be doing 1 min? all my gesture studies are 30 second studies o.O i'm thinking maybe that's why my lines quality sucks? What do you suggest?

    mike: Thanks man! Yeah, I definitely need to work on that, that is a common crit I get on my works

    Grandmassa: What's rockkkinnnnnn man?! Hahah thanks! I hope that piece turns out well

    dierat: Yes, you're totally right, i went back in and made some corrections, but I'm gonna redo the study and try and get it symetrical, thanks for pointing that out!

    sublimus: Thanks! I'm glad I'm not the only person likethat, it gives me hope Haha yes, I've found quite a fewof my classmates apparently don't need artschool (fools), so I hope you're right! Thanks!

    walid d: Thanks! Yes, I definitely need to do more!

    -----------------------------------------------------

    Nice work! I think some referenced digital paintings will really help you develop your digital painting skills. You're studies are looking great though, they'll really help you improve Keep it up!
