    I drew this one, I got the eye on the right to small and tried to make it larger and it caused it to be to dark on the sides of the iris, any way, you can see a few other problums I had, but the likeness was good, and I am tring to keep posting my sketches, the good the bad and the well not so good.
    Oh and a flip flop

    I am still working on observation drawing, a slow day at work so I drew the skid stear loader

    Then I was looking for pretty girls to practice on and came accrossed this ad so I drew it, after working on it I knew my eyes were off, but done what I could, I went to post it and knew if anyone payed me any attintion they would mention that both the girls had eyes that were off. I had them straight but while rendering I lost sight of the guides and messed things up, not the first time that has happend, but I guess that is why I keep practiceing. So since, I knew they were off and was going to post it anyways to record my progress, I decided to post the ad and a layover showing were and how I messed up, and I was right on the eyes and my Observation was slightly off else were, but I am pleased with my over all accuracy, looks almost like I traced in spots, any thoughts or advice let me know

    You've got a good start here. I really like the sleeping dog picture! All I can say is keep doing your studies and you'll get better! Also, try doing some figure drawing - if you don't have any classes/sessions in your area you can try this place : http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php it will really help you improve if you do the trainers. (they even have animal drawing trainers!)

    *New Sketchbook* Come stop by :3

    *SKETCHBOOK*(old)


    I am currently looking for a mentor to help me improve my sketch book. Either that or lots of crits and suggestions to help me improve my skills.

    Thanks Newman I checked out the site, and see myself useing it.
    Nerferinn: No such thing as failure, without Failure there is no success, so in the spirt of balance, Ying Yang, and Karma, if I produce ten thousand failures then I should in turn produce ten thousand successes hehe. It is only through Failure one learns to succeed, I have learned more from loseing then i have ever learned through winning.
    Though I understand your pep-talk, I wasnt being negative, it is the way I view life, it may come off pesamistic but in truth it is very optomistic. Thanks for stoping by. I love how you combine anima with realistic styles.

    I tried a self-portrate, far better then the last one I did, wich resembled a bull fighter whos head got steped on and the quack surgon who took his own artistic libraties, LOL it was bad... but this one can be shown off and cratiqued. 1hr 15 min to a hour and a half at most.
    Edit>useing a mirror
