    Even though you put a big 'wrong' next to that first head sketch, it looks great!
    Really like your stylized work; I think in comparison the hand lacks a bit of structure though. Maybe something to study next?

    little bit of nothing...

    IvoM thanks for comment! I need more practice that´s true! Here is one attempt of head study... It´s much too difficult to draw something with more life for me...

    little bit of nothing...

    Sorry for these two,but they are too big for my scanner...
    For one I used V.Gogh`s drawing and for the other one
    Michelangelo`s drawing as a reference...
    Comment please or this sketchbook makes no sense...

    Hello my friend!
    Drago mi je da si poceo novi sketchbook, i to tacno prije novu godinu, svaka cast!
    Svidja mi se ovaj pocetak , i vidim da si dobar sa grafitnom olovkom, samo nastavi da lepis nove radove i ja mislim da ces sam sebe iznenaditi u veoma kratkom intervalu. Ja nemam nikakvih primedbi na tvoje dosadasnje radove, vidim da crtas iz realnog zivota i da tezis ka hiper real grafitnom renderovanju sto si dobro dokazao na portraitu ovog decka. Cista petica.
    Zelio bih da ti pozelim puno srece u daljem radu i svakako cu slediti tvoj svesku za crtanje.
    Cemo biti u kontakt

    I would echo some of the other posters and say that some studies of anatomy/proportion etc are perhaps what are needed now...

    Overall looking good though, keep 'em coming!

    bharat-Thanks a lot! When it comes from an artist like you,it`s definitely an encouragement!
    TheButterBunny-Thanks you too! Yeah... I need anatomy studies...That is difficult for me and I need more practice.
    So... Another head study! What else...

    Man, I think you need to scratch a little more just to get the correct gesture

    Thanks for checking out my sb!

    Generally, looking at the last few portraits, I think you should push the range of your values. Right now the last portrait looks a little flat, which could be improved by making the darks (i.e. the guy's left cheek) darker.

    Also, I think it would be beneficial for you to do more short line drawings (less than 20 min. each) and focus on capturing the form with contours lines and a little bit of value accents. I think spending more of your practice time on line drawing, as opposed to lengthy rendering, will help you improve even quicker.

    Anyways, keep it up M.J.!!

    I think you're really good with using graphite. Your shading is very smooth and you do good with defining edges. Your figure studies up top are very beautiful, keep with the practice.

    Yes! Gesture drawing is just as important as the longer studies. It trains your eyes to scan for whats important in a figure and will help give your lines a more lyrical quality. The 30-second drawing app on Posemaniacs is a good resource for doing those if you don't have access to a live model. With hard work you'll get good enough to do (and enjoy) gesture drawings of live people/animals outside.

    You might also find this book (online) very helpful if you're looking to put yourself through a drawing "course" of some sort. It includes exercises and everything.

    Thanks again,
    Abell

    Hey Plissken! Didn`t you see me? I`m just in front of you,waiting in line for that free thing...
    Ha,ha,ha...
    A friend of mine asked me if I could create some logo for his new small company,and only thing he had on his mind is name SEPE (initials of his name...) and bicycle (it`s all about cycling..). He wanted me to incorporate bicycle`s wheels with letters S and P... For me that was too much details for one logo,so I need your opinion for my designs here...
    I`m not sure if these two are good enough...

    It's coming along! That last bird is wonderful, the shading really matches the subject. Which is what I want to talk about.

    Your shading is very smooth, and as mentioned before it rather blurs your edges. What pencils do you use? Do you use lots of different ones? It seems you can often push the contrasts more to show shape and forms. Try getting a hold of a range of pencils from HB to 9B. Try using the different ones to see what effect you can get. It will be useful.

    Another way of showing form is hatching. I should hardly speak of this, seeing as I just decided to start doing it properly on my own, but bear with me. Check out some hatched works, the self portrait thread is always gold when it comes to pencil drawings. Check out the works of, for instance, DanielC. See how the lines follow the form? They curve in relation to the supposed curve of the object, making it appear 3D. Try it! It's very challenging.

    Your lines could also be worked on. You work a lot from photographs; you have the reference right in front of you. Make sure your lines are correct before shading! They don't have to be perfect or completely similar to your reference, but make sure the proportions are right. Drawing from life will help you see things better, so whip out your sketchbook and start doing some still-lives and perhaps a few portraits, too!

    But all in all you're doing good. Keep it up!

    How did the logo go? It's overdetailed, imho... logos need to be as simple as possible. Imagine the sign being printed on a large billboard, and then on a pen - it should be super readable in both cases. Details get lost when you size down an image, which shouldn't happen to a good logo

    I love the bird, it's beautiful!

    MONKEYDOMINATOR-For these birds I used 3H,0.5 and 0.7HB tech. pencil,HB,3B and
    8B. All my drawings are from photos and yes,I`m having problems with similarity but I think
    the main problem is my knowledge of human anatomy. I need to practice more and it`s so difficult to me to make hundreds of sketches,it takes time which I don`t have so often.
    Anyway thanks,I appreciate your advice.
