    Mystic's little art nook.

    Feel free to openly critique my work. It needs it.

    Two new sketches. One is a goldfish speedpainting (10 minutes) another is a chow chow puppy I'm doing for a dog game.

    Sketch of a girl, a set of 30-second posemaniacs, and a little one minute bikini sketch.

    MS, nice start. I wanna tell you, something you said reminded me of one of my own goals: to be able to get the stuff from my head out onto paper. One of the things that helped me tremendously, was a book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, by Betty Edwards. It takes a different approach to art, mostly it's about how we perceive things. If you take it seriously, and follow the lessons, you will see a big improvement in your ability. It's no gimmick, but it is a great little book. It also covers anatomy, color theory, and all kinds of cool stuff. There is a great little bit in the beginning about before and after studies from her students. Those are real: I used this book myself, and am forever grateful for having done so. I hope this helps. Would like to see you be able to show us what's in your head. Keep at it! Never quit.

    Thanks. :]

    I've picked up the book a few times when I've been in borders and Barnes & Nobles, but I always end up saying "maybe later." Now I feel a little more inclined to buy it.

    Not a bad start, keep practicing! The more you do the figure drawings and life drawings the faster you'll improve.

    Some stuff I've done this week... the portrait is a life drawing I did of my beautiful friend Brianna, and the page of sketches were mostly from photo reference, except for the girl on the bottom-left.
