    Hey, Dan! Looking good with the digital progress and the "animation" in your pencil lines! Even with a portrait (Snoop!), you capture some moving essence in the subject very nicely!

    As far as the digital eye is concerned, there is still some flatness in areas, like where the lower lid stops and the eye's white begins. It's flat to a point that the lid appears painted onto the eyeball a bit. Not terribly, mind you! Look closer at shadows of the eye, including the white part. It looks white, but I think if the light hits it at a certain place, there still will be some shadows to use to your advantage. Great smooth painting job on the whole eye, though! It gives me the impression that the eye is more real.

    For Snoop, it appears that the drawing is from a photo or something, so what you should probably do is really delve into the form that you can make out in that photo. It looks like a copy of something, but if you really get a feel for the form in his face, how the angle he's positioned in influences shadow and light, how other elements of the photo influence shadow and light, etc., you can make a more dynamic version of the pic! What I like is his expression and how you've captured it so well. As I mentioned above, the "animation" of it, so you make it come to life well.

    Hey I love your pencil work bro, your shading skills are off the wall. Keep it up
    "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."

    Hey bro, what books do you refer to other than Bridgman?

    Hi danlucas!

    You are starting on a good foot (dunno if this expression applies in english lol) by studying those books about anatomy, your sketches are very gestural and dynamic, which is good!

    However, when you are attempting more rendered work, you seem to forget the basics of the sketch, and that is causing distortions in those images. Always remember that the sketch is the base of a finished work

    Keep at it!

    Hey, Dan! Sorry for not responding earlier.

    Nice progress there! I see the face angled upwards (your last post) has some distortion at the chin. I agree with remembering about the sketch! Do keep records of how a face at those tough angles are drawn. You might need to draw it a few times and analyze, maybe make a few measurements (not precise) to really get the picture.

    Great movement!

    Your Absolutely right Morgado, I do need to spend more time on the sketch and getting it right before the rendering. Sometimes perhaps I get quite into the habit of rushing so I can get to the rendering. But I will take your advice and give it an honest try. Thanks for your good critique, i'll check out your SB soon.
