    Hey mate! I see some nice stuff in your SB you are making nice studies on the head. I will repeat what some else mentioned that you lines are looking scratchy which is an issue I have but have started to work on.

    First you need to learn how to hold the pencil properly for drawing which is something I have only just realised myself. Here is a link for this http://chiseledrocks.com/main/musing...old_the_pencil.

    Second you should draw from your shoulder not your wrist which is possible once you hold the pencil properly and begin to work on larger paper. Here is another link for this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YLOiIbQYFw

    I hope this helps and keep up the hard work.

    UrbanHermit - thanks for the links, I've watched them and they were really useful! I used to draw more like that actually, but recently I've regressed back to bad habits. Also never knew that drawing on a flat desk was not the proper way to go about things...


    Oren90 - thanks for the continued encouragement and making me feel like im getting there no matter how slowly!

    Hey dude keep going on those studies, exactly what you should be doing.

    Human faces are NOT easy so once you have that down, you should notice improvement in how you tackle other things as well.

    I always use parallel construction lines to make sure the features are in perspective. While placing each one, think about the 'roundness' in the face, especially for the lips. Generally, just keep doing what you're doing

    Post #45 - last image. The bearded man looking up, has a defined plane on the side of his forhead that you've shaded in...I wanted to note this specifically as its very helpful to indicate, and is a major shift in planes of the front to the side of the head. nice!

    Jakers - yeah I'm really trying to work on the "skewedness" (if thats a word) of how I place features. I think the studies are slowly improving how I draw the features themselves but of course thats only half (or less) of the problem of drawing heads... I hope that learning to think in a sort of comparative way about volumes in constructing the head will help me in other aspects of drawing when the time comes!

    Thankyou for the encouragement and stopping by!

    Here are today's "not" so tasties... Working from Jack Hamm's book on drawing the head and body and i worked today solely on hair and how it is achieved without drawing every strand (which I have proven doesnt look great for the amount of time it takes)

    Heres some stuff from today - been working on hair again but starting to bore of doing solely that. Had some lectures on community ecology and something else but they were terrible so i spent my time working on hair!

    Also started doing some animals after reading about how I need to reference shapes and things from nature in order to really create a "realistic or believable" imaginary object/creature... - couldnt help but put stupid hair on them though!

    Jordan85 - thanks buddy I appreciate the encouragement

    here are todays offerings.. didnt get around to doing any yesterday because I had a couple of essays to do.. which inevitably ended up being done last minute due to too much desire to draw! Thought I'd get a bit of inspiration from some classic fantasy films so I watched the never ending story and a film called Willlow for some ideas. Also did some nose stuff and some silhouettes from the side..

    Todays posts... Some drawings and three 20 mins colour studies. I thought that these might help me get my eye into the idea of identifying colour and value, which I often struggle with, taking several attempts to select a colour from the palette that is even remotely similar... Have been reading imaginative realism too recently, its pretty inspiring stuff but I am still extremely daunted by the idea of a landscape!

    Hey, keep up the hard work, it is paying off!

    It is nice to see someone so motivated, and you seem to have a knack for this thing, so just keep working hard, I'm sure you will evolve quickly.
