    Hey Queen Worm, very nice work in here so far. It seems your strength lies in rendering out values with keen precision that produces a wonderful illusion of 3-dimension forms. Your weaknesses are in structure and color, so try to focus your studies in these areas. Your anatomical studies look great; try to keep those up and it will really help your more finished work over time.

    For your more finished value-focused work, I think you might be jumping into value a bit quickly. Once you get the linear sketch done, take a moment to step back and analyze it from a distance, like a few feet away. If you're working traditionally, you can lay your drawing on the floor and stand on a chair to gain some distance. Try to look objectively and critically for proportional mistakes, and fix them before you get bogged down in the details of complicated value gradients. At least when working digitally, you can adjust and tweak your image to correct these inaccuracies, but it will save you a lot of time in the long run if you can develop the habit of correcting these problems earlier. (And it will really improve your traditional work where it's much harder to go back and change structural elements.)

    DariusDS-your architectures in watercolor(?) are awsome!!! Is there any way that could make it easer to render a complex or classic architecture? Your line drawing of buildings are so delicate,,,Please share your working process with us!!

    dierat-Yes!! Exacly! but what I feel conflict right now is that I take figure drwing and anatomy in the same time and in figure drawing we have to capture all issues as soon as possible.. that make me force myself to finish line work and proportion really quickly in other kind of practice...But just like you said unless we get the right line work, we should keep the proportion issue beforehand.

    so Happy to get your comments!! Really helpful!

    These last life drawings are nicely measured. Small crit: the legs on the first one look just a tad small.

    If you want to improve shading even more maybe take a look at the Scott Robertson DvDs for shading surfaces.

    The small gestures from your previous post also look cool. Maybe take one of the quick gestures to a more finished state and post the results here step by step?

    some quick drawing for class. The model was great but I just don't have enough time to capture all the detail...Try to be more convinced and different shading process.

    Hey there QueenWorm.

    I see some great potential going on here. In your post 103(first picture) you're really pushing those core shadows, and getting some nice lightning going on - keep that going.

    If I were you I'd attempt to draw slightly more fluently. I see in some of your drawings that you "interrupt" your line, rather then letting it fade out, from for instance strong to light, light->strong. This is also something that comes with a lot of experience when drawing, making you more "secure" about your own lines. A guy which is great at drawing fluently and making these smooth transitions is Mike Mattesi (definitely check out his way of drawing here: http://forceddesign.blogspot.com/)

    Hope it helped
    /B

    Benjaminbach-exactly! Some of my teacher point out the problem of line quality as you mentioned. And another problem is that I break light part into separate pieces when I shading.I still try to understand what exactly they are saying...And I check out your blog and website, you are so good and so young,,,I hope I could draw like you when I was at your age,,,, Feel free to left comments!

    Well,,,Bought a sketchbook yesterday and try to force myself draw more in the future. Some same studies on figure and some crap~I can't draw something fantastic and environment yet,,,

    some doodle recently. My journey to CA is close to the end and that is something make me cry recently. So many good artists and great art studios are here and I can't stay longer but go back to serve in military~ s*ck...
    Some art studio or school that i quite recommend are gnomon and 3kicks. I take all of my class in gnomon, but 3kicks in pasadena is really a good place to improve your skills that I just found. So if you want to pick up your traditional skills, 3Kicks is great~ For computer art or traditional clay sculpture, Gnomon and sculpting class with John Brown would be good choice. I would upload my sculpture later.
    I am not working for these art studio, these are just some of my learning experience in CA. I am Not posting commercial here~

    its such a great sign youre taking homework assignments like "Homework of anatomy class : practice on skeleton and some detail." and turning them into superdetailed fun things for the hell of it!! that means youve found the joy in it; taking any old brief and making it your own, pushing forward and having fun. thats the magic secret everyone frets about finding think.. keep up the good work!

    Velocity Kendall:Thanks! I try to find my own approaches to depict different part of the body~memorize these ideas to see if I could create characters with more structures. Any suggestions on self-learning?

    Bunrt-Ice:Thanks!!
