    Managed to get some images out of work. Not meant to keep paper.

    Two from reference and two from imaginations. The imagination ones are out of proportion yadda yadda I know. Just thought Id post them as its not just loomis ftw for me.

    I like pens. Might start doing some studies with them too. No rubbing out. No grids. This will be fun!

    Oh and got the Loomis book on hands and heads. Yay, better faces here I come.

    Looking good so far, keep doing your figure studies. They're really helpful

    gotta update more often....

    just started some oil painting classes so I will hopefully be able to update this every week with my progress. First ever time using oils, so much fun!

    the other two are photo studies.

    Looking good Andy!

    The colours you picked for the photo studies seem pretty accurate, but you need more contrast to really render those forms. If you made gray scale versions of those studies you would notice the values don't change very much, and for the most part, its values that make things "pop" and feel solid and 3 dimensional.

    When you're doing the hair, try to use bigger brushes to get the overall movement of the hair worked out before you bring in smaller detail like individual hairs. What I mean is kinda render the hair as if its some kinda fabric and then gradually refine it until you get chunks of hairs, and refine again until you have individual hairs.

    Anyway, I hope to see some more imagination stuff from you, it doesn't have to be finished paintings, but even just small sketches after doing studies will help you retain more info and train your imagination. Good luck mate, hopefully cya soon

    My first real attempt at doing a complete imagination painting and its just at WIP just now, although I'm not really sure where to go with it now. Any crit would be very much appreciated!
