    Today was a great day!
    Firstly, a color study:

    I did a lot of skull studies. Then when I thoroughly understant the skull volume, I did this painting to study the skull more in delph and get its details:

    Then I tested the knowledge I got from it by creating a whole painting from mind! it was great and I loved to add some details. I might make it better and more clean later:

    Anyway, tomorrow is my "rest day", so I won't draw that much

    Hello again!

    Thanks for the paintover in my sketchbook. Really appreciate it!

    Impressive skull studies. You've really got the color picking down. Can I ask you what kind of exercises did you do to get good a picking colors? Did you start by color picking from reference photos or just go by trial and error until you got the hang of it?

    Thanks for your comments!
    kitfox> Well, at first I sucked at color picking. So this is what I did:I tried to get the color the best as possible and then paint over the photo reference. If it changes nothing, then it means I got the color right. Otherwise I just compare with the right color to figure out if my color need to be warmer, lighter, darker, more red, ... Now thanks to this technique I'm way better at it, it don't take me so much tries to get the right color. It might sound like cheating but it's the only way I found.

    I'm still studying the skeleton. I almost finished it! ( I need to learn the legs and the arms bones)
    I'm too lazy to scan my studies but I can show you this exercice I did! I took this photo and paint over it how its skull should look like!

    and then I painted it! this one was hard though, and I struggled a lot with it

    Lovely progress! That last painting looks like it really paid off to do that underlay and spend the time on it! Also, eminem is awesome, I especially love his earlier work! One crit I have that has been said already is about your pencils. Try loosening up and maybe try some blind contour studies.

    woah, thanks for your comments, it really cheers me up!

    Not_Deadman> Well, I'm not a big fan of rap music but eminem is one of the only rappers I find awesome
    Towy&SableStorm> Thanks a lot!

    I was kinda frustrated these days, so I did only a couple of drawings.
    This one is special since I tried to paint it 2 weeks ago but really messed up with it. So I'm really glad I manage to overcome this failure!

    this one was really quick, less than one hour:

    And I finished to study the skeleton. It's not perfect, but I know all the majors bones. So, this was a try to invent some skeletons from mind. ( Well the arms suck since I didn't had study the arms' bones at the time)

    I must have posted, almost a year ago, where are you hope you still sketch.
    If you do pop in my sketchbook and let me know. Great stuff in here.
    I didn't see the skeleton date, very funny and useful to do the same time.
