    Nice start, I like the face at the bottom.
    Hope to see more soon, and even some anatomy studies?

    First couch I've drawn in years. I tried out crosshatching which is something I'm trying to get the hang of more. I'd like to do a full interior scene when I have more time.

    I set up a still life of my mom's bedroom slipper, a book, and a pack of cotton rounds on my living room floor. I was at a loss on how to handle the plastic.

    Aha! That was faster than I'd thought. xD

    Those anatomy studies are good, especially since they're from your imagination.
    I like how you're drawing the things around you too, such as your room and slippers- something I just can't get myself to do.

    I think I might have to keep an eye on you. xD

    Thank you! Drawing people and other "exciting" things is nice but sometimes it's just great to get back to the basics. It's also a good art black buffer.

    I look forward to your feedback.

    good start! work more with gesture, cause that is the key element in bringing your drawing to life. Keep it up!

    A couple of figure studies. I'm working on making the figures look more balanced. Any other critique is encouraged.

    Ah you're making good progress, the lad in the boxers though seems a little stiff, perhaps it's because his torso is straight and so is his leg.
    Perhaps if he was leaning fowards a touch and his upper leg was stretched out a bit rather than straight down?
    Oh- I'm not sure what I'm talking about, just keep experimenting with figures and finding refferences of running people- I'm sure they'll be more helpful xD

    i like your pencil crayons. i do them as well, it's fun.. and it's a good way to learn the basics of colour before using a brush. :-)

    do more gestures. a combination of life drawing, photos, and figures from imagination. keep it balanced between those for a while. you could read books as well, but i never found them very helpful.

    I did some painting on photoshop. I have always wanted to get that painterly effect and I don't know if I'm doing it right.

    And don't worry, I'm still doing gesture's also. As a matter of fact, i just started my life drawing class so I'll post some of my work from there.

    Thanks lollipop girl. And as a matter of fact, I have more right now. I almost never do environments. Here is my first real attempt at one and I'm pretty lost from here. People make this look so easy.

    Hello again! Not like I ever do landscapes, but I think the one you did could do with more contrast.
    How was the lighting on it? Morning? Afternoon? Cloudy? Sunny?
    What sort of foliage is there?

    Mountains need a little bit more of a jagged look to them too.

    If you're not using a refference, why not google some just so you can try and understand what textures you need for what you have in mind. It's almost impossible to do a nice landscape from your mind if you're not used to doing them, same with figures or any other subject.

    Anyways, keep posting.

    I was going for more of a cloudy look. You are right though, it would be better to use a reference. I really don't have too many idea for this.

    Now that landscape is fantastic on post 23!
    In time you can probably take components from different photos and mix them together to make what ever you want in mind.(But you must already know that xD)

    Anyways, keep up the good work!

    You did a good job on the landscape in #23
    I suggest you draw more people from life or photo and do master studies to get a feeling of the human body and face, your first posts look like they are strongly influenced by anime

    I told myself I was going to do more anatomy today but somehow I got onto landscape painting again. I have life drawing class in about 2 hours so at least I'll get some anatomy practice in today. I may post some of that if I feel like photographing it.

    Texture experimentation because I want to make sure the foliage in my landscapes looks at least halfway decent and I'm having a little difficulty with that. It seems like I get to a place with this and then I don't know how to take it further.
