    great job, twan. nice start and progress!
    i think you should draw males too, because it seems like you haven't drawn many. the two genders are very different even though both are human haha.
    keep up the great work!

    *Slowly claps with jealousy*

    I wish I had your drive at your age dude keep it up. When drawing from mind, just remember porportions, some of your eyes are way big (a problem of mine
    too)

    Just google genreal face porportions if you dont know what they are, you get a good list.

    my sketchbook is a work of art.
    sorry that joke WAS horrible

    Be careful on the jawlines. Men have jawline's close to the ear, women's are further down. Make sure the soften the features on women, and pay attention to the differences between the sexes. You're doing good.

    Spend a little more time on your studies and get the most out of them. It looks like you're rushing some of them.

    I found my line was one of my worst problem. Indeed it give a negative image to my drawings, because it's dirty and too rough. Moreover with a bad line, correct the line become really hard . I have difficulty to beautify and improve my line, any advices?

    so yersterday I wanted to start over, create again a new thread but evenif find my old drawing too bad, it permit to see my improvement I think
    so here stuff of yesterday and today:
    twan learns to draw
    some hands, lot of funs, I learned a lot
    twan learns to draw

    I think I have to draw more from mind but it's really hard damn
    I'll begin to study anatomy in the nexts days !
    have you got artist to advice me to study (except loomis, bridgman and kchen that i already know and who are awesome!) ?

    You have a really good touch with the pencil and great dedication, especially for someone your age.
    One thing to work on...keep an eye on your proportions when you are working from life or from photos. I notice that many of your referenced drawings are showing some measuring errors. Practice sight measuring and triangulation and really get those relative distances down, and your work will soar to a whole new level.
    Keep at it!

    As the ego shrinks, so the spirit expands.

    thanks for the advice MephistoLV, I'll try to do it!

    here a failed attempt to paint an apple, it sucks, it's realy hard to make realistic painting...
    twan learns to draw
    and some anatomy studies, I've drawn so slowly for those one, I can't believe it ( around 3hours I guess) but I do not want to make low quality stuff, that why I spend so much time. Need to draw faster

    So today I decides to study arms!

    first some bridgman's and hogarth's studies:
    twan learns to draw

    then I study my dad's arm, which was fun eventhough there was no light source, thus no shadow and light could be render and it more difficult to see volume:
    twan learns to draw

    to finish I tried to apply what I've just leanerd, I draw from mind, which is no so easy!
    twan learns to draw

    I think I should study shoulders ^^

    and to all have a very good christmass, cheers ( so I won't post tomorow obviously)

    Hi Twan, thanks for having a look at my sketchbook! Yours is nice as well. Good that you do so many head-/anatomy-studies. I think working more with reference will help you; so do more still-lives. I also had a look at your SP-thread: try out various techniques for SP (watercolor works well, because it is fast; or digital).

    Your Anatomy and the drawings from your mind are good. You can transfer the things you learn by studying fast to your imaginational drawing.

    Keep going Are the Heads in your last post from imagination too?

    Help appreciated
