AlexTooth - Thank you! There will be a lot more!
Dina2342 - Thank you, you are right! There was no intention what so ever behind my portrait.
And usually my portraits don't have an intention...and my mind goes blank a lot of times when I try
to create a character. Will try harder to think of stories and see what happens to the way the portrait
will look. Thanks again!
More figure studies!
Poor portraits, I know, will have to try harder!
Traditional drawings done with ink.
Wow! I really love your sketch book. The studies are awesome! I hope my sketch book looks like this one day. I especially like your gesture drawings on the last page.
Erm.. I came here to give CnC since you so kindly posted in my sketchbook, but uh.. I don't think I'm even nearly close enough to your level to say anything here without sounding like a prick.. So.. I'll be back in.. A year, I guess? D:
I realize my profile picture sucks. I will put on a better one when I make/get given a better one. I don't want to use a Google profile pic.

Ha . You said I'm doing hard work, this sketchbook is crazy. Got to give it a better look but for now when you put your figures in perspective make sure that the torso box and the pelvis box align properly. For example in that lying pose the torso and pelvis should be on the same line that goes to the left.
Good luck! See you next year.
Your last figure posts look great! Jealous of your progress =]
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!
Nice sketchbook; It's nice to see your progression. I will be joining you as a disciple of the masters studies. Keep it up!
Thanks ashess! Didn't do one in a while. Thought it's time.
Head and portrait studies for today.
My digital sketching isn't so good, got to do more.

starting on those value master studies too huh?
a great start too, though maybe a little too much hard brush. but that's more of a secondary concern.
step 1 should be getting your shapes right,
step 2 getting the values right- you're pretty close there.
step 3 getting the edgework right.
so, focusing on step one, maybe use a grid to double-check your work.
the first piece, the overall head seems to be in the right place, but the features seem to be distorted. the nose is too big, leaving too little space for the mouth and chin.
in the second, the whole head is too big, upsetting the overall composition.
well, I think you did a great job at gauging the values, but now you need to make some transitions ofc. control-paint has some great tutorials about that.
lol; I've been linking this all over the place, but it helped me a lot... and I think it could be great for you too.
ashess - awesome! i completly forgot about ctrl paint! though it is such an awesome site; and you are completely right, i should do more rendering studies; also, from the last time i painted (that being month ago) i forgot i used to vary edges more and paint with soft brushes too xD thanks ashess!
Here is today's master study. 1.5h
I'd work some more on it but no more time. Exam tomorrow.
I studied the composition and flow first, then blocked in the big shapes.
Then added the rest on top.
Gorgeous work so far! You have really improved so much! Keep it up, Christina! You amaze me.
oh wow so much better Chris! now, you're gonna notice yours doesn't looks as pretty as the original. it's in the details. like the suggestion of a chin in the original. breaking the lower line of the jaw that yours misses. the hairline being off just a little. the top of the head fading away right.
not sure if you need to fix that, but I found it interesting.
