    i really like the portrait, nice job! Tho i must agree that the hair line is a little bit off, and i like the perspective of the things in her hair but it looks like the gems on our left side should be coming down again a bit more, just a small detail.
    Did you draw it from scratch in photoshop btw? i find that extremely difficult, i almost always have to draw it out on paper first, so nice job to you!

    Hey miycko! Your life drawings are looking good, the headphones especially! Watch out with your original pieces though. The last one looks really cartoonish. Unless that's the style you're aiming for? Regarding the skin tone, it's a bit unnatural. There are a lot more colours in human skin than you used. Don't forget to add some blues and reds where the skin is thinner.

    Love the Loomis studies Miycko. The portrait looks real good, but IMO the shadow inside the top of the ear looks a little dark. Keep up the good work my friend.

    P-Sage thank you very much dude you're very right about that dang hairline, when i try to fix it other things end up getting messed as well hope i'll fix it when i'm in a more patient state

    BlackDelphin Loomis sure has made things so much easier, been drawing heads like crazy recently mainly because i wanna get out of the "lazy rut & into the productive business" so i'm doing them on the bus and anywhere else i can find the time to (when i'm not watching tv that is) it's only working half the time though but atleast i's got me drawing more

    i hope i find a better way of doing hair sometime soon, but i'm happy to have gotten this far with it thanks so much for the great input

    seagulls thank you very much dude i've been thinking very much about becoming a concept artist, especially for videogames. i just hope my art is going in the right direction for that

    LAV thank you very much those pesky gems just wont look right no matter what i try. yes i did do it from scratch in photoshop, it was very hard for me as well but thankfully practice has made it possible thanks again

    Grandmassa Mr. Spect THANK YOU VERY MUCH DUDE

    Erdbeerfeldheld thank you so much i'm glad to hear they're improving right now i don't really mind if my imaginary pieces are a bit cartoonish, i'm actually starting to like it very right about the skin, need to do moar studies

    Creusa Hey there, i fanally have an update for ya

    Peetaer Thank you so very much dude hope moar improvement is coming

    ryanoir thanks a lot dude master studies - coming up

    Turbosnail Thank you very much man gonna do much moar practice on lighting & well everything else soon

    first off some loomis head studies i've been doing over the last week or so (mostly from imagination). Loomis has really made it easier to draw heads so intend on taking advantage of that next is a two & a half hour valuestudy i did this morning, here's the link to the original http://mjranum-stock.deviantart.com/...-C-11-79370529 and last but not least, i finally finished the William Bouguereau study after spending fourteen hours on it

    You just have to learn to relate the parts to the whole to get the hairline to work. It sounds simple, but you'll have to keep working at it.

    ...

    Nice work in this update. The nude looks good (watch the hands)

    For the Bougereau study.... look at the flute player's feet. Cover the foot that's flat on the ground for a minute (at least 30 seconds) with your finger and get used to how that looks.

    Then remove your finger.

    See that? It pops forward. A light element on a dark ground will pop forward. Check the value contrast between the girl's feet in the original, because it surely isn't that great a difference.

    Keep going.

    One can certainly see that you're trying to draw more! Great job Micky!!

    The heads will help you a lot
    The figure is looking good, but i'm not so sure about HER right foot. It seems a bit to frontal, compared to the ref.
    About the Bougereau study, i agree with Psage on this one. Just cover that left foot n see how it looks.

    Folds n colours on the other hand, but especially the folds look so sooo good!!
    More, more, don't you slow down now!

    Woooooah fab finish on that master study! Very nice eyeballing there.

    I like the painting of the girl lying down- though the only thing that throws me off is her rack seems fake (from the way they're still so round even though she's leaning back- but it's okay if that's what you've intended? XD). I also notice you tend to add in highlights ... parallel to ... the outlines? The body isn't exactly a perfect surface (not sure how to word it), so I believe it would help if you blended perpendicularly to the highlight rather than following it. Currently, the highlights seem to make her look a little more mannequin-like.

    it's not the end that matters but the journey

    Awesome updates Miycko. Love the Bouguereau study and the Loomis heads are looking good.
    Small crit....... With the nude, (IMO) I think her left arm looks a little big in the tricep area compared to the ref pic. It's all to do with how the cushion edge is rising up in front of the arm due to her bodyweight and position. In your pic the cushion is not quite rising up enough, due to her position on it.
    If you look on the ref pic and see where the top-edge of the cushion goes underneath her body. On the ref pic it is directly below the breast and on your pic it is directly below the neck. By moving this intersect point, the shape of the arm will change. Otherwise awesome job on her mate and sorry for being so long-winded.
    Keep up the good work my friend.

    Hey Miycko how goes it? Really nice updates as always the Bouguereau turned out REAL nice i do see what Psage is saying with that foot though but a fairly easy fix i think? Keep up the hard work and keep on trucking!

    I concur with psage about the feet. It also seems like you could use some practice with folds/clothing. Some parts, like the flute player's arm, look flat. Keep it up miycko!

    Good progression man, the nude is really good! maybe you should darken the place where girl's back/arm makes contact with the pillow. On the bouguereau piece, as P sage has stated, try to relate all parts to the whole. both girls seem to have a too orange/saturated face, especially the non-flute one. You might also work on the forehead to integrate her hair with the face, and correct the chin/mouth, which make the impression to be a bit off the symmetry axis.
    Anyway, it's great to come by and see you're working so hard!
    Keep it up man

    The study and the value study look great as always. I'm way underqualified to talk about character design, but I know that a structure to what you Want to do, will help. It's really hard to get rid of the distractions, I know. Maybe more of those competitions will help.

    B]Arestocrat[/B] Thank you very much dude i'm quite happy it turned out so well and it was a lot of fun to paint

    GweNdZ Thanks a lot it's really annoying to have to constantly put up with "real life's issues" instead of what you really wanna do. you'll have a lot more free time sooner or later but until then just keep passing by whenever you can hon

    p sage you're very right man, i tend to work on things in pieces instead of the whole so i really need to figure out a way to avoid that. Thanks a lot dude hands are so annoying to paint must keep practicing. I completely agree with you about the flute player foot, i couldn't figure out what the heck to do with it. i'll definitely keep an eye out for that in future studies

    Creusa Thank you very much hon just a couple hundred more of these & i'll be good to go

    Lav Thank you very much miss Will definitely keep at it & hope bear some results

    Balckdelphin Oh shucks, Gracious senorita the heads seem a bit easier & more fun now, all the different types make them real interesting too that dang foot was such a problem & me being impatient i couldn't be bothered to fix it i'm happy you like the folds, i enjoy painting them more nowadays

    ilmenhin thanks very much miss you're right, her boobies do seem fake, i meant to "fix" them but got lazy & later forgot. i totally agree with you about the shading, thanks for that great advice i'll be trying it out very soon

    towy thanks a lot dude

    Turbosnail Thank you very much dude you're right about that arm, i need to be more patient with the initial sketch so it can be more accurate - well actually i need to be more patient & observant overall thanks for the crits dude, they help a lot

    p sage i'm glad you took the time to explain what you meant dude it really helps a lot, i will keep your advice in mind for the next study

    latigid hey man thanks for the visit & i'll be sure to keep at it

    erdbeerfeldheld practice with folds is always a good idea thanks for the crits

    Abrodos Thanks a lot man it's really hard to find the colors without using the color picker & i've learned a bit more about head/structure sice the study so i'll keep an eye out for that next time thanks for the advice & crits dude, come by more often

    Peetaer thanks a lot dude i'll be sure to do more of these

    seagulls thanks a lot dude i think the knowledge i'm gaining here should be applicable to at least a small range of fields in the industry i want to try & be a little flexible with the options as i get some basic knowledge about art. i haven't joined a contest in some time so that aught to be good motivation to get some work done thanks for the visit dude

    p sage had an awful couple weeks but will now update with something......... less than stellar

    Loathsome Thanks a lot dude

    Been a sad souple weeks for me so i don't have much to show, shortly after my last post i fell sick for almost two weeks - malaria (yes we still have it here in dear ol' africa). i'm much better now but my harddrive crashed, i must have seen it coming cause i backed up my works shortly before that so it's not the heaviest loss. i got a new harddrive but my photoshops acting up for some reason. need to get it fixed so i can do some over this long weekend.

    So here's the little i've done during my absence, the first one is a two hour value study from a few days back followed by an update on the Urim & Thummim painting i started for a friend of mine a few weeks ago.

    Hey Miycko sorry to hear about your misfortunes but glad you are feeling better from the malaria! And i hope you get your photoshop sorted out soon too. Nice with the update on the piece for your friend, are you going to be changing the arm angle of the figure on the right to the ghost hand in there because i prefer the new angle? Keep your chin up dude and remember there is always a pencil and paper if the computer does go capoot!

    Cool works! On the figure study, I think it would really help you to simplify things, and work first on the big light/shadow masses. Right now you've concentrated too much on the values in a certain body part, but the tonal relationship between all the parts seems a little messed up; I mean, the lightest gray is the same in every part, and also the darkest one. Try squinting your eyes while looking at the ref, to see the real light masses. Once you've got them in place, you can start going to the details.

    On the 2 girls one, be careful about perspective: human figures are also affected by its laws. Loomis explains it very well in "successful drawing", check it out.

    Well I think it's all I had to say!
    Hope you're getting better man! And don't worry about photoshop at all, maybe that's a perfect moment to pick some paintings /pencils and try some traditional

    See you!
