    ryanoir I'll try to draw more

    tehmeh Alright, is the loomis studies in the 3rd image what you're talking about when it comes to construction? or should I actually make it the blocky figure?

    So I've been busy with life these last couple days and just drew these up today. I'm probably not gonna have any time tomorrow to draw either :/

    Nice studies! Those bridgman are looking good. Don't ,forget to actually understand the shapes, and not just copying them! Also, redraw them a couple of times till they are exact, and then add a few from memory or even imagination. For example, on the head studies, after you finish the studies, create a few more boxes from from different angles and then recall the proportions, the shapes, and construct your own angles.
    It will be a stretch, but you'll definitely help a lot.

    And regarding your poll, don't worry about that! It may not be an instant visible improvement, but each post rings you closer to awesomeness! Just hang in there, think why you're working so hard, and keep going!

    Hi there!
    About your last post I think you've done well the study of materials and colors, but I must tell you to pay attention to symmetry.
    keep going!

    ryanoir thanks man

    BlackDelphin Thanks for the feedback, I'll try what you said about drawing the same figures a couple times and stuff

    *Rena* Yeah, I noticed that the symmetry was off, but I'm gonna let myself slide since I was mostly just goin for the colors and metallic look

    rastaray Thanks!

    I think I'm getting better at constructing my figures before really getting detailed with them. Though I still need to practice perspective, which I'm sure is going to be really boring -.-

    Haven't been drawing much in the past couple days. I've been hanging out
    with friends and my MMA classes changed from 2 hours to 4 hours so I've
    been having trouble finding time. This is what I've done in the past couple
    days though.

    My friend wanted me to draw her. So far it looks nothing like her :/

    Was stuck at a bazaar and all I had was a pen so I tried some stuff from imagination. The arm sucks and the poses' shins are too short.

    The Andy Samberg portrait's colors are looking a little desaturated and the values I think need work.
    On the portrait of your friend, I think it's the eyes that are throwing me off the most. I'm not quite sure what it is though.
    On both, try switching the mode to grayscale in Photoshop, that might help see the values better.

    Keep up the figure work too!

    firstly, characters looking nice so far!
    and whats putting me off with your friends face is the mouth, yours is like super super light, i suppose it looks pleasing though just teeth WILL have a cast shadow on them
    you got it to look like her that for sure but the jawlines not right, too skinny in yours
    keep at it

    ryanoir Thanks man, and yeah, I see what you mean about the portrait. Oh well, she said she likes it

    Here's more progress on the character. I was in a rush last night so I didn't have time to explain it. I'm drawing this for my older brother, and the character IS my older brother. It's also a very cheap Hannukah present for him so it's all good.
