    Those pen sketches and studies are really nice--the shark sketches I especially like.

    The Eva Longoria painting looks a bit too "smudgy" in the rendering. Are you using the smudge tool, blur, or something like that? I would suggest using a harder brush like the simple hard round brush instead. I think that the face studies of your less finished face paintings are actually better than your more complete ones because the form reads so much clearer.

    Keep up the good work. Your art is already progressing in the short amount of time since you've started your sb!

    Damn, nice studies yo!
    I love the flow and energy you captured in them!! You've got good control of the pen.
    As for the digitals, I have to agree with Cheerio.
    Also, try using broader, more confident strokes to define planes. And be realllly selective where you smudge. Only certain edges. You need to really think about why you're smudging that area. Not just to tie 1 color together with another.

    Keep working hard mate. And thanks for stopping by my book earlier

    Cheerio, Seage: thanks guys!

    As for the Eva Longorina painting it is more of a "smearing" than a painting. I work in Painter, I put some colours roughly where I want them to be then use the smearing tool to smear them into shape. I do not know whether it is a "legit" technique or not, I like it , it is easy and I like the end result as well. It is not finished though, I want to tighten up the details around the eye, nose, mouth region. I promise I will try to paint next time

    This last portrait was a big improvement over the previous, somethings i noticed was the neck is a little long, and the eyes are a bit different (i don't know if this is intentional)

    It seems to me like you should work on your negative space drawing, i started reading "Drawing on the Right side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards and i can tell my drawings have improved greatly, your local library should have it.

    Nice Sketchbook, and keep up the good work.

    Hey nice work with the digital paints, they bear a good resemblance to the originals! be careful to analyse every part of the face and the angles of the lines you draw, but great headway. Love the characateurs(sp?) in the first pages. keep it up!

    Beautiful sketchbook, I love your line work! Those Frazetta studies are great, I think they'll be good for improving dynamic figure drawing. I agree with Seage, try using bold broad strokes and practice limiting smudging. Smudging can be good for suggesting depth of field, putting areas out of focus to allow focus on import areas.

    Awesome work dude!

    DonovanGonzalez: Thanks! Yeah, the neck is indeed long, and eyes are different but it was not intentional. I have heard of that book, I will check it out.

    tivz88: Thanks! Actually I am not happy with the likeness at all. Need to work on it

    StolenSky: Many thanks! There is lot to learn from Frazetta Bah, smudging was sooo easy!

    Here is a "carcoal" study and a new portrait, this with the palette knife, both in Painter:

    Hey man, thanks for the comment!
    Good looking sketchbook. You've got some confidence in those lines of yours, and that's a really good thing to stand upon.
    The life drawings in post #21 are really good, you should do more of those! One improves a lot from that kind of things.
    Though in that last portrait I do miss some of those fine edges that you've shown earlier, esp her chin looks really wobbly. Try some more gentle strokes, it's all about the contrast between lines man.
    Rock on!

    Hey mate really liking your loose lines in your studies and your face studies are definately coming along now that your using hard brushes too instead of leaving them blurry (i need to do that too) Your works really inspiring for us beginners, Keep it up!
