    more figure studies. I sketched out more complicated poses with some foreshortening included. I believe that the best way to improve at something is by trying something that is the hardest. Here I also used white on black because I feel like it is a good exercise to get the mind thinking in a different way.

    Thanks for the comment in my sketchbook!

    You don't seem to do much drawing from life, and the heads seem to be from imagination am I right? Try tackling a self portrait or drawing people from reference. The faces you have drawn so far have got a dynamic quality, as people keep mentioning, and if you kept drawing from life for a while, just drawing yourself in front of a mirror for at least half an hour chipping away, you'll add more quality to your work. Some of your sketches seem rushed and unfinished, as if the line has left the paper too quickly.

    Don't be entirely put off by a piece because of something tiny. The piece you used a grid on for example is a great piece and we all start with crutches in our learning, so don't feel that the grid held you back, in fact keep using a grid. See it as a training wheel. I can see from the first lot of sketches you have a copy of or have read 'Drawing on the Right Side of the brain', try using the viewfinder a lot more until you are able to see things 'sight size' as they say. It seems like you've gotten a better grasp of value than me, which is cool and yet you don't yet see proportion very well. This comes from internalising a viewfinder in your minds eye. Being able to see a line 'out there' on something and knowing that when you put that line on the paper, the two have to match up with everything else around it. If you catch my drift.

    Van Gogh used a viewfinder and a grid system to learn to draw, and I'm sure he wasn't the first, nor the last. See this as inspiration to keep using any necessary tools that will improve your work. Forget the old rubbish about 'it not being pure' or whatever. I hope that isn't too hard to accept for you because it will help.

    The face blowing on one of your pages has a great character to it. Thanks for helping me to understand eyes a bit better. You clearly have some insight I could learn from. I'll remember more dark around the eyes next time I'm drawing.

    Hello! I really like your caricature-like faces! They're really fun to look at. Your style is also very interesting and neat. Just make sure to watch out for proportions in some of your faces. Other than that, keep up the studies! Great sketchbook!

    Hey! (larissa from livestream chat). You practice a lot, which is great to see. Try to do your lines and strokes in bigger, swift movements. Also when you paint, try to get more solid, opaque strokes in there too, some of your painting is looking a bit washed out because of opacity. Keep it up!

    Hey, great stuff. I like the fact that your dissecting the skull into planes and doing more detailed anatomical studies. You seem to squish some of the faces on a few of the earlier portraits and there's a bit of skewing or distortion going on in some of the more detailed skull studies. I like the swamp raptor, it's ghost like and whispy if that makes any sense.

    DUDE, you are on a great path and i see that you are making some REALLY wise choices about how you are spending you time drawing.

    The stuff you are doing with gestures is going to pay off. Gesture is one of the most important aspects to drawing dynamic human figures in the long run. I would even bargain that its not worth getting into specific muscular studies until after you are comfortable with gestures and general proportions.

    Do however familiarize yourself with the bones. When you draw a figure physically feel your own body (no pun) and try to understand how those muscles and joins push and pull against eachother. Try to convert that into your drawings.

    As far as painting, ide like to encourage you to do something i regret not doing at this stage... stay away from digital painting and learn to paint with acrylics or oils. Perhaps you dont have my shortcomings and imperfects, but learning foundations in traditional mediums will set your work a part and give you a level of understanding about color that you wont nessecarily get by just color picking in PS.

    Also it was great seeing you in the chillstream. i hope you drop by again.

    Here is some suggested reading:


    Alla Prima, Richard Schmid
    Color Mixing the Van Wyk Way: A Manual for Oil Painters, Helen Van Wyk
    The Natural Way to Draw, Kimon Nicolaides
    Rapid Viz: A New Method for the Rapid Visualitzation of Ideas, Belliston & Hanks

    Color theory + Design fundamentals by Wucius Wong are good books to, but they are a tad on the boring side...

    @ Atrum. That was a study form a Loomis book. and thanks everyone! So I was trying to finish 100 poses by today but that totally didnt work out. I happen to be working too slow! I get held back with trying to make the figure look accurate. I deleted many bad ones also! But here is is a sneak peak. Ill try to get 100 done by tomorrow, but for today I cant spend alot more time on it because I had a last minute friend reunion that I have to attend tonight. cya later!

    -updated: June 11th. 2nd image. More poses but I did not number it. My new goal was to get 100 that I like. Soo its gonna be an on going process of picking and eliminating.

    thanks so much for all the feedback! Those figures are looking really good, you have a really strong point there. Keep doing those 100 figures, it helps a lot. You are doing a lot of great stuff with those studies, keep it up and they will take you far. You should really try broadening your ability with some enviros and still life paintings, as well as keeping up with the value studies. can't wait to see some more.

    thanks everyone! my first serious value study! and a little cartoon/design I made for my friends new business. never tried to do this style so it was kinda tough, especially creating it from my mind.

    **update** : june 22: the bottom 3rd one was done last night. I have noticed that my weakness is rendering values and showing precise shadow and light. I tend to loose focus and try to speed up the painting and get it done. I need to settle down and spend more time on a single work.
    -last one was a scenery that I copied off of someone else from DA. It was a quick sketch so I did not put perspective too much into account.

    Hey Yog!!! Nice studies you got going on here! Really neat!
    About the Brain value study, I think the light is a little bit confusing...like, the light on the face seems to be coming from bellow while the light in the body seems to come from above...And that is something that is better to fix sooner than having to fix the whole image later on...but that's just my opinion!!!
    Keep up the great work man!
