FightingSeraph: Thanx for stopping by, what about uploading flash files I just don't know another way. If you know it, I'd really like to know
Some doodles done recently, first from reference, then anatomy (this became more tough for me, need a lot more head studies) and guinea pigs which I was trying to draw while they were running in my room, but they are so quick!
I really like the #159 the faces how do you call that in english ,,hatching,, ?!?
I can see it through your SB your are really good in that hatching/ shading style.
Some advice for you: Enjoy your work, progress will come faster, the anatomy
studies looks great !!
I am here to learn too, some crits would help,.......

Thanks for visiting my sketchbook!
Your progress from the beginning of this sketchbook is good, just keep pushing!
I suspect the snowy hill in front of those houses in post 151 would have something of a gradation. As it is now it looks very flat. Not that I expect you to go back and fix a speedpaint, but it's something to keep in mind in the future.
Keep it up!
Hey, you're improvement is outstanding. Keep up the good work.
When it comes to volume, it's really important to squint A LOT. Idk if you do this already. Most people squint to recognize bigger shapes but try to look for the value in those shapes as well. Notice the difference in value of what's closer to the lightsource and the shapes farther away. Always compare and contrast these shapes.
The second thing is to constantly be stepping back and looking at your work in another way. Stepping back or reducing the size of your image(when working digitally) helps to notice those values. Flipping the image-which has been mentioned here as well.
And the most important aspect is that you do this very, very often. Meaning draw for 2-5mins. and STEP-BACK. Look at what's wrong with it and then go back into the artwork again. Try to get into the habit of doing this. I can give a better explanation of why this needs to be done if you want.
