    Good to see you on again!

    Like I said before, I like how you decided to portray the saddle in your latest project. A lot of work was put into this and they turned out really good. Your use of shadow, and darks still need some work but there was good improvement between the Folds and Saddle project.

    The one thing that really interests me though is the sketch of the person from observation. Would be interesting to see more studies like that as well.

    Keep up the good work, and keep posting!

    @Cole hey thank you too , you will never guess what a task i got now lol, thanks i learned smth on contrast again , and you are quite right with the shadow, i try to make the new task better.

    Only a little update for now ,

    Hello hello.

    Fun working with charcoal! Good work, Especially for your first time. Looks like all the drawing from life is paying off, and You already show some good control. The only advice I have at the moment is to be careful with your hard edges and how you place them. Instead, try to vary the widths or be selective on where you want a hard line. The picture will tend to look flat if you don't. Even if you were going for a more graphical look, I believe it is still important to be selective in order to focus the viewers eyes on how you want them to see the subject. You show good potential, work work work! Actually, remember what I said about that

    Let's see some more

    Love the pencil drawings; the sense of form is great. I also particularly enjoy the charcoal drawing and I hope you'll continue to work in charcoal; it's a really wonderful medium once you get to know it ^^

    Like I said before that digital portrait came out nice, especially with how you placed your highlights and the selectiveness of defining the hair (nice touch). Your personal style seems to start showing itself in your sketches, or at least what you like to concentrate on. Out of these recent sketches the woman you drew seems to stand out the most. You did something right, there. Keep up the good work.

    Hey Cera. Long time no talk, huh?

    Your schooling is paying off, glad to see it.

    The biggest complaint I have here is that in a lot of your drawings you use values that are really close together on the value scale, and it's making it hard to read some things, especially with the saddle and some of the close-up shots.

    good luck!

    Nice nice... I think those sketches have a nice "flow" in them. Although I must agree with Sepulverture. It was kinda hard to say these are flowers. But when I look at your first post again, it shows you're capable of placing good highlights/shadows ranges. So just keep an eye on it. And update more
