Awesome amounts of progress already! Of course, we all want more! Keep them going, I don't think there's anything that I can offer in critique really, right now, because I feel like everything that I'll mention you'll improve on anyways tomorrow. :3 Keep it up!
Grandmassa: thanks man I will play around with that---I think perhaps I haven't been conscious while making my lines--your process should help me to become more aware, thanks!!
snootchy: thanks man Hmmmm I think my sketchy lines are a bad habit perhaps I think I confused them for personal style, and my teachers have always encourage it saying it was "energetic", this is the first time I'm being confronted with it, so I'm definitely gonna tackle this and try not to relaspse into that bad habit. and thanks for the tip on painting! I think I should start writing these down on teh side of my PC
jailhouse: thanks man!
sketcheth: thanks! hahah well if you think of anything let me know! thanks for stoppin by
ooh great update hala, the apple looks delic and the portrait is awesome, love the slight texture and lines on the face! gestures are looking great as well!

i always luv'd hearing this one in figure drawing class i took and always thought it was a nice way of saying try harder, hahaha (sorry might not be in your case since you seem to have much better grasp on quick gestures than i do); but I had like barbwire type of drawings back when i started which was terrible, still not that much better but after seeing great draftsmen like a james jean sketchbook, i wanted to push myself to obtain sharper more confident lines and keep aiming for that so i guess this was where i was coming from on the whole contour lines or breaking curves into simple lines
either way the most important thing is that your practicing and liking the daily updates, and improvements in each new post!! Keep up the good stuff!!!
sounds like you got an awesome ma, now go give her a BIG hug!! =)
the gestures definitely looks great on second and third page, because they show more confident strokes and by that i mean they aren't choppy strokes but rather simplification of the forms by observing the overall form compared to the first page of gestures where the strokes appear to be scratchy or etched out
number 9 on the second scan of gestures is my favorite because it has beautiful s curves and continuous strokes, very nice job on these!!
ooh excellent, really luv to see you doing the constructive anatomy and focusing on proportions, only note on the head in 3/4 quarters view, it helps to break the head into a box in perspective just to see if it fits in that box; if you try to draw a box in perspective you'll see where the foreshortening looks a bit off in that 3/4 quarters view head
keep them studies coming, i'm really liking this last batch definitely shows a higher level of approaching anatomy, great job =)
