    Good work on the still lifes. Keep pushing your observational skills. Allso try to set the habit early to apply the stuff you learn. Like the perspective. The little red box in your still is easy enough to apply perspective, it looks like it might have been done. If you have, good on you.

    Thanks for stopping by George. I did keep perspective in mind when I was doing that box Thanks for noticing!

    Okay, here is my weekly update. My gestures still LOOK terrible, but they are feeling better to draw. Even though it may not look like it, they felt a lot easier, and more loose to draw.

    Still life update. It's not much, but I feel that I am making progress. I am going to set aside a 2 hour chunk sometime this week to finish this still life and hopefully start a new one.

    Made some progress this evening on that still life. I got to spend a good couple hours on it! I had a ton of fun too! I think I will dedicate 1 more hour to it tomorrow and then leave it be.

    Loomis study: Spheres/Human head

    Loomis, I love you. Your book is so much more interesting and approachable than Bridgeman. I think I need a year or two under my belt before I seriously dive into Bridgeman. Also, I think I need an anatomy book if I am to address Bridgeman with any sort of authority. Anyone have some recommendations for a good drawer's anatomy book?

    This is all I've managed to get in the last 2 days. Been extremely busy...

    With the holidays coming up, I am planning on getting a ton of face/proportion, perspective, and observational studies done. So plan on a big update after Christmas sometime

    Also, I am starting a new DP tomorrow. It's my first attempt at referencing a photograph, so we'll see how it goes. It'll be an enviro-paintingl; also a first for me.

    Some value studies. I learned a lot doing that still life. I realized how much impact the background can have on defining a light'ed or shadow'ed edge. It also helped me really rub in some darks to make the highlight areas "pop" a bit more.

    I am now going to start my new digi-painting enviro (from observation).

    Again, paying extra attention to the relation of edges between the foreground and background. I think I may have had a semi-breakthrough on how value is treated in contrast to lines.
