Here are several studies of random heads. Now that I look at them in a monitor, every head looks so wrong Ahhh, still have to study so much.
And a quick sketch for fun (from reference of course )
Started to study Kevin Chen sketches. They are sooo superhelpful!
And immediately tried to apply the new skills on some heads from imagination or photos. Still need to practise.
Also tried to fix one of my previous movie stills, but probably would be easier to start from the beginning than fix it.

Hey. nice studies, I really like the last one, it's shaping up real nice!
And try to do more imagination stuff, you should remember the 2:1 ration yourself
My sketchbook - help me get better!
great stuff go ahead
good luck for future

fernandoart, thanks for comment. Yeah, usually this ratio is to limit imagination stuff and do more studies. But for me it's opposite, I hate to draw from imagination so much, because they are so wrong, like a childs drawing. But you are right I should do them more!
qlotzan, thanks I'll peek in your sb also
Wasn't drawing much during these days:
- loomis arm studies
- some poop from imagination
- tried the B&W study again, but failed mainly because don't know anything about back anatomy
Nice sketches man. I think I'm gonna drop by from time to time
you have a nice control with anatomy
keep it up

Cool to see MORE hard work.
I saw in your profile that you work in 3d printing and product design. Can you post some images of the things you do there?
diCharge, you're very welcome to drop by from time to time. You got great sketches yourself
qlotzan, thanks for stopping by, again
jigje, thanks! Specially for you here is some 3d parts we have created. Nothing fancy, just a poops from clients :
Did some kchen and loomis heads again. I can feel how knowledge settles in my head And as you can see, drawing woman is ridiculous
Tried posemaniacs for first time, 30 and 90 sec. Damn, they are so superhard
Also a quick life study of my dog.

try drawing more from real life,
your understanding of colour seems very primitive
try to balance warm tones with cool tones, (ex:// in skin, the colour gets deeper and redder towards shadows, shadows can be cool colours to make the subject pop, light bouncing around, etc)
vary the hues you use, not just sticking to monochromatic schemes
Really nice studies you've got here. Keep practicing the color studies.
I would suggest you take extra effort to get the proportions of the head right. You might have to start off with measuring it in the beginning, and might feel tedious. But soon it will be natural.
jAqJaQ, thanks for the great tips, especially about the colours, i'm really noob with those was thinkig to work on b&w studies to practise the values, I hope I'm doing right.
fenixx, thanks for the kind words. You are right about the proportions, I'm laying down them too lazy
Haven't updated for a long time, but was drawing every day, just too lazy to update.
- arm studies from loomis and bridgman, also applied the new knowledge on refs and imagination stuff
- tried a self portrait for 2nd time in life, i'm so shame about it, turned out very bad
- posemaniacs, 30 and 90 seconds
- another value study, tried out a new blending way, with opacity setting set to pen pressure. I regret that I didn't found out about it earlier, i'ts so much easier and faster to blend
Nice vanaga. You inspire me to do more studies. It looks like you know the way around an arm now, haha. Keep up the good work. Have you tried a self portrait in digital?
jigje, that's a huge compliment saying that I'm able to inspire someone to study. Thanks!
Emīl, liels paldies par padomu un uzmundrinājumu. Klusā daba noteikti tagad ir manā darāmo darbu sarakstā. Un ne viena vien
Lost my inspiration and didn't draw for a week But then I sat down one evening and turned on Crimson Daggers and was drawing for an hour, and thank God, got my inspiration back and now I'm drawing daily again, huge thanks to Dave
- some bridgman hands
- was trying SP in digital, will put on some values also
- figure drawings during crimson daggers
- life drawings of my goddoughter while watching cartoons
