    Hey zanna there's some cool things going on here my favourite is probably the portrait of the boy, If I was to give you some advice I would tell you to concentrate much more on life drawing at this stage. Perhaps look at anatomy artists such as Andrew Loomis are fairly accessible. Even though this may sound boring if you put the work in it will definitely pay off in the future. Good start to your sketchbook I hope to see more.

    Zanna mate, you're 16.
    You're looking in the right places. Loomis.
    The values will get there, of course. Just keep your eyes and mind open at all times.
    Pencil to paper. Always.

    Learn how to squint to simplify what you're lookin at. This blocks in the values to your retina. Keep aware of the lightest lights, and the darkest darks. And constantly compare
    how the other values measure next to those strong ones.

    You're doing still life. Awesome.
    Perspective. Gaaaah, that devil. Please learn it.

    As long as your mind is open, and you know what you're reaching for, it makes it that much easier.

    -You could do value studies everyday. Even just small 2inchx2inch thumbnails trains/helps immensely.
    -Keep a sketchbook in the back pockets. Who cares if it makes your ass look big, some girls like that.

    16, 6, 5, I like them. I remember that pear. [Don't eat it if it was suppose to be green. Ha!]


    I may not always be around, but I will always be learning along with you and everyone around this place.

    There's so many things to go through man. But like I've mentioned, first 5 links on my sig.
    In fact, the whole learning section has so many gems.

    Keep your eye out for those gem knowledge drops too. There's a few hidden here and there.

    /Vardo

    [Wow, now that's a rant, eh? ] The next one's will be shorter. No promises. Blaaaaah.

    NICE!
    i see you're doing still life, anatomy and digital painting! my favourite combination!! hehe
    and i think loomis is great! i shall do his studies too very soon

    about the pear, i think for a first painting is really good!! blocked in well, vivid colours, and nice mood, really!
    and a pear is pretty rough textured object for a first try i'd say

    keep at it cuzz you're good~

    Lin Ran thumbs up fer doing hands ... i'm holding that off as the last body part.
    And I always like women to have wider hips than their shoulders.
    Unless I'm doing Bo Derek, and you don't ever question those numbers. She's hot.



    Bridgman is good also ... do a search in archive.org
    If you find gold in archive.org, please do tell. K?

    Keep those visions flowing marco and everyone 'round here. ya hear. (Southern drawl) click bang!

    Funny , I had to add George in the search input ... I hope they fix that in their searcg script.

    http://www.archive.org/search.php?qu...rge%20bridgman Constructive Anatomy, but if you got 'Life drawing' already, physical copy, all the better.

    I've only started thinking about using construction lines and indicator lines before
    going full on with a sketch and what what.

    Marc, don't be afraid to use lighter values and build them up.
    I'm somewhat in the middle, I'm mostly mid tones and none of the extremes.
    I'm trying very hard though.

    oooo ImagineFX on my sig ... I'm chomping through those whenevah I can.

    doh ... that's one thing I'm guilty of, I haven't tried many different types of media yet. But what ever works marco ... some people can do light and darks with just your normal pacers.

    Mix and match, whatever works and gets the emotions out nice on papier
