It's great that your sketching so much and doing so many studies. I can already see a lot of improvement from page 1. Are you still using a bamboo? I find them very unwieldy.
Keep up the practicing and maybe work on the hues of your skin tones a a little more. They're coming out looking a little saturated and dull. Try including more colors. This last post has the best skin tone yet. It looks really good.
Fantastic progress dude! You are getting very good at this. Keep it up. I need to get on that digital rendering soon. Hey, Ill teach you how to render traditionally, you teach me how to render digitally!! lol
Anyways, I was just going to say that if you are working from life(which I prefer over photos), try looking really hard for depth. Push the details more on the areas that are close to you and let the things in the back go--you already know this but I thing you should try pushing it a little more. It'll get you more realism.
matejkovacic: Thanks man!
Silwynar: yeah i should push that image further
benlinalexander: Thanks for advice! Well.. i don't think you'll need any suggestion on drawing/rendering digitally. It's just tool and all you is is just get use to it
I should update more often :/
Can anyone please tell me how do i change thumbnail picture of my sketchbook? Thanks!
I've never traced the image because i thought you don't learn anything from tracing. Now i think i was wrong.
I made example of tracing (selfpotrait). Few lines were traced but everything is based on basic knowledge of drawing potraits (loomis, bridgman,..).
I haven't learn a lot from this tracing but i for sure did learn what i was doing wrong in previous selfpotraits - which is the most important thing.

Man you are a beast, rendering those still life's.
And not to mention digital metal renderings. Amazing.
Do you have some tips for those shiny things, how to render them?
Some video tutorial or something?
I am not so satisfied with your pencil skills and with your head
and face studies. You should work on those areas a bit more.
Overall, you are headed in the right direction, you just keep pushing.
LtPlissken: Thanks for C&C man! I think my rendering are far from anything i could call good. Only thing i could tell you is that you just have to practise. That's it. Look at the metal object you have at home and draw them all day long. You'll be better than me in no time.
I totaly agree about pencil drawing. I totaly suck so i decided to spend more time on traditional studies reather than digital.
Thanks again and happy new year to everyone!
hey wolf! long time no see! i remember you used to post on imagineFX.com a while ago! your studies look awesome as ever! keep practicing!
ps. to change the icon for your sb, you have to change the first attached image in your first post in here. that will autimatically be set as your new thumbnail. keep it up!
Very nice still lives and your latest set of studies also look great. All I wanted to say is that you should build up the structure of the human face before rendering it but it seems you have already found it out. Keep up the good work.
great thread dude,love the life studies & strong portrait work. I dont think you're rushing the portraits ..20 mins seems like a short time in theory but to my eyes they seem far,far too good to be worried about them
Looking forward to moar stuff!
Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.
Awesome still life's,your rendering is great keep it going.
Awesome artist and friends
You got a pretty unique caricature style. Well done!
