I really like your inc studies and your digital stuff looks
great too, not that I can judge it cause I don't paint with
the portrait study is great. the apple, I'd need to see the ref now! lots wring with the lose on the couple.. I could do a draw over if you want. oh, forgot to say, I joined the color theory thing. lots of info. dont really know how to apply it yet though.
ashess - Thank you! Your comments make my day. There's not much going on in here any more I see. I guess that happens when you're away for a long time. I attatched the apple reference and with the couple image I didn't understand what is wrong." lots wring with the lose on the couple" I didn't understand that. As for drawing over it, sure! That is very nice of you, thank you! And the color theory thingy, I'm not up to date with all cA stuff, what is it? A new course? Where is it?
Tried to paint an eye with my own skin tone ideas. I like the result.
But I tried to copy the right eye and thus make the left one.
There are so many flaws with that! Never again! >_<

aa, I meant there were structural issues.
here's a quick paintover. all I did is use box shapes, but I think you can tell where I needed to make changes to have my boxes add up.
the apple, ha. you did a good job. noticed you over-corrected for the mistakes from first time, ie the 1st apple was too thin, you made the 2nd too wide. the highlight in the first was too round, the one in the 2nd is a little too long.
lastly, I had to laugh. sorry. you made these beautiful eyes, and then you copied and pasted them with a distance between them about half of what it should have been. see? they look fine like this dont they?
Thanks for commenting on my sb
The progress on that apple is great. And the studies are looking good too. Nice work!
ashess - thank you for the paintover! the construction stuff looks good; makes me think how to approach poses
like these better. but the angle of the pose was this: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Male-F...CK-1-113483160 (right corner up)
And I want to have that angle. But I understand what you mean with more construction.
With the apple you're quite right haha. I over corrected it. And for the eyes...well.. I'm bad with face shape and proportions. I've
drawn the skulls, I tried imagining how to add muscle to it, I've drawn the sockets and all of that, looked up proportions and I still
can't draw it right, and I don't even realize why.. I tried making this portrait from mind and she doesn't look like a lady, and I don't know what to do to it xD ( I just see that the eyes are to big, but i don't know how small is to small so i left them that way)
Ethnax - Thank you for dropping by!
Tried to do a still life study.
Hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! Your studies are coming out great, I love the last one!
I see you're having problems with stuff from imagination. For me it's the other way around. For drawing the figure from imagination I'd recommend thinking a lot about what you are going to draw. Who is the character? What is he doing? The problem with the lady portrait (the one you said didn't look like a lady) is that it seems to have no intention behind it. Why is this woman worth drawing? Who is she? Does the composition (light and angle as in a driver's licence picture) fit her personality and what you're trying to convey with the picture?
Last year in class we had a very interesting excercise where everyone had to paint a huge self portrait. It was interesting because I saw some really interesting compositions. One guy had painted himself in the down-left corner of the picture, half his face lit from the right, and a pure black background. That spoke volumes about him.
I did a quick paintover to show what I mean... I didn't change anything but the lighting and the expression, but I think it shows what I mean.
Shoulder to the wheel, my friend!
