    good studies bud i'd say your strongest aspect right now is your rendering over drawing-- particularly with the hands and anatomy studies. do the same type of studies but with more line work rather than rendering find a balance between the two. great stuff so far-- stick with it!

    Good head study - but watch the ear placement, size (too low/small) and the far eye - size, placement and way it pinches down to meet the edge of the face.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Hey Pete,

    You are a machine. I looked at your first page and I see so much improvement! Just keep it up! Head study above is looking good, I agree with JeffX99.

    Thank you for your nice words in my sketchbook ^_^
    You've improved a lot from the first page thats for sure! I think you should concentrate more on your line flow, read a bit about it try out some new things and you're off to go)

    Good stuff here mate.
    There are great figure photos on Hong Ly's homepage (on my signature)
    Maybe try to combine your anatomy studies with photo studies.
    And I'd suggest you do caricatures, I've started to realize how helpful they are for character designs.

    Lots of lovely studies in here! One thing I noticed is that you tend to draw ears a bit small and warped in your portraits, try to see the ear as a series of random shapes and draw those shapes instead of thinking "I'm drawing an ear, the lobe must go here" kinda thing

    Keep working hard!

    Thanks for the recommendation and the crits. I do have a few bridgeman books and loomis's. They are very helpful.

    Here is a nearly finished master study. still trying to learn how to draw a better head.

    wow very nice improvement from page one to page five dont worry about how bad you think a drawing from the past is everyone has them no one draws amazing images every time from the moment they pick up a pencil everyones got to start somewhere but keep workin hard your drawings are lookin good in the last one i see your startin to very your line thickness when you do line drawings try to do that... your head construction seems pretty solid keep up the studies doin master studies helps me alot michelangelo and rembrandt are two of my favorite painters to study from for pencil work try checking out glen orbik fred fixler and anthony ryder, anyway keep on workin on the basics and studying the structure loomis and bridgman are great for this but i see you have already been studying them so keep it up hope

    o and when your shading and hatching dont get in a rush and go to dark to fast lay your mid tones in then gradually build up the dark areas by laying down layers of hatching and be patient with the self portraits and keep practicing

    try doing a ton of quick timed studies of heads, just blocking in the major proportions and landmarks, just to practice placement and scale etc.
    http://portableapps.com/apps/graphic...nview_portable http://www.irfanview.com/
    you can try it with a timer of 5 to 10 minutes , or use a 5 min timer twice to mark the halfway point.

    keep at it.

    You're definitely getting better. Keep up the hard work!

    "This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville

    @wooden mango and mincx thanks for your compliment
    @surfandsnow that sounds like a good idea, that's something I use to do in my life drawing class but I think I will start doing it on my own.

    Here is a bunch of recent work I did. I also finally did something other than pencil

    Hey feller, looks like you're doing well to keep up the studies. Keep practicing those self portraits and don't be disheartened because I see improvement in them already.
    Anyways, some interesting concepts and a good lot of studies so no crits from me- just keep up the good work.

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    Thanks for dropping by on my sketchbook.Your studies look good but your head studies/portraits need more work.Do self portraits in front of a mirror for a while and you'll improve dramatically.
