    The thumbnail sketches look great.
    As for human heads, if you haven't already, you should get a hold of the Loomis head book. The features is this last head look okay, maybe the nose is a bit too big. But you should try to get some more color variation into the skin, and not just a darker color of the same hue. Maybe try to do some photostudies of portraits and really study the colors. Keep it up

    Eye studies. I will do a lot more studies from life.
    Any good threads in here or websites/blogs/videos for drawing faces/complete humans?

    I have the loomis book but I want to take a look in some other sources :-)

    Greets,

    Hat nicht ganz geklappt mit dem "täglich ein bild" ? ( is aba auch anstrengend ;D )
    Wir sind ja beide "Anfänger" - mal gucken wie weit wir kommen

    Anyway you do great progress - maybe you should start with some anatomy?

    keep it up

    hi guys, next update follows tomorrow, because I'm on my girlfriends house and she got no scanner for my drawings from the time sitting in the train today.

    Here's my update for today. Some eyes again, 2 sketches of dark age alike cities and a speed sketch in two colour types with a tree brush made to show my sister how all those things work. She was speechless. Like I was, when I saw what you can do with a computer and a tablet some years ago.

    Greetings,
    Flo

    Really nice eye studies. And that last thumbnail looks great, nice castle design. But maybe add some slender shapes far out close to the horizon to create some more depth.

    And check out this site, he has gather some very good links to tutorials and material.

    i agree with my previous speaker - i really digg that you are working on the basic stuff - and dont worry about speed - focus on getting things right this will spare you a lot of time in the long run - i know that it can be really tedious ^^ good drawings are not just a matter of skill but also of patience

    i once have been to pride to work on the seemingly easy basics - never be like that i also like the bridgman stuff - want to see more of it !

    I rly like the brush style of the environments, great work! I also caught that Republic Commando sketch in there as well, very nice. I wish they would've continued that series... the books are still going though I believe.

    Hi guys and thanks for your comments. I will do anatomy, beginning in the next few days. But now I am thinking about which book to buy. I know that there are ebooks for free but the quality isn't that good AND it's pretty incommodious. And of course the real book can be in my backpack when I'm sitting in the train or bus or whatever.

    I'm thinking about
    Bridgman's "Life drawing"(6 euros), "The complete guide to drawing from life" (13 euros) and
    Stephen Roger Peck's "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" (15 euros).

    Which one do you recommend most? I heard, that the Atlas is pretty compfortable for anatomy-beginners and so on. But for about 20 bucks I would be able to buy Brigdman's books for Faces and Heads, thousand Hands and the Human machine.

    I really don't know which I should choose. It can be written in english, of course. That means that I don't need a german book.

    Tell me what's the best I can actually do with about 20 bucks for getting some resources.

    In the right time I'm going to take some photos from my girl or my sister, friends and so on. Just arms, hands, legs, etc., no private stuff, of course. Haha.

    I have the Bridgman complete guide to life drawing, which is pretty much all the Bridgman books in one, for sure worth every penny. I don't have the other one.

    I would definitely recommend anything on anatomy by Andrew Loomis if you can find it. They're a bit rare, but on the occasion one does stumble upon a copy or perhaps an online pdf of it, I highly suggest it.

    Here are my drawings for today. Hope you like it. I like BIC cristal stic ballpens anyway .

    With which pens, inks and pencils are you drawing? Anything else like erasers, rulers etc.?

    It's decided which book I am going to buy for now. I'll take some looks on 'em again, maybe I wait until I am in a bigger city in a bookshop.

    best regards,
    Flo

    hey man good effort, open up loomis's drawing the head and hands, it really helped me to understand the structure of the head and features, and I progressed tons by copying the heads from that book, I highly recommend it.
    Try grabbing a pencil and drawing some basic shapes from real life like cube and sphere, cone, the mouse doing as many of those as possible will really help you with values.
