    Nice detail! Your strokes seem to be becoming lighter. I would make the smudging more subtle just because its distracting from those nice lines at the moment. Looks like you're still life drawing! Awesomeness.

    I'll be interested to see how the bust drawing comes along, as I was going to suggest you work more on your basic forms and incorporated that into your drawings. Think 3D all the time because you seem to be playing lip service to it at the moment.

    Ceinwen Fang- hey pixie, where ya been? doing good? Since ive swung back to foundations and traditional stuff im playing with line weight and stroke technique as this is stuff ive never looked into at any point before. Smudging too is a new venture so ill take aboard what you said, appreciate it oh...haven't done life drawing since cardiff but going this tuesday and i am stoked.

    black spot: definitely trying to hit the life observations a lot more, the bust when on hold as i dont think its the greatest place in my house to have it setup due to the light/space. Also is there a rough distance you can recommend to place your subject away? I found myself squinting a little too much haha

    Celadon- i promise, thanks for stopping by :]

    This week wasnt as productive as i'd hoped- theres a lot of little doodles, a couple of attempted life studies of people that didnt go to plan and a long slow picture of a friends nephew which isnt too bad yet!

    See you in a sunday

    Will

    Good to see you still working away. Mind you I think I infected you with wonky eye syndrome. At least your spitpaints are clearer than mine.

    The spitpaints are clarifying your compositions a lot more. Choose a couple and push them a bit more afterwards. And stick a link in your signature to here.

    Sorry for my bad English

    black spot. are you still here?! *hug*
    thanks parapauler, means a lot! Heres a semi dump of 2014 so far. Its been a bit of an uphill struggle with trying to find better work practices,time allocations amid battles in my non art job having a knockover effect into my drawing habits. For the near future im intending to traditionally focus on fundamentals (predominately linework and anatomy) so ill endeavour to keep this sketchbook a tad more updated


    Incidentally, im starting to attempt more focus on observational studies because i find self portraits really fun but the quality on them is poop. Anyone got any advice on seeing what is there and not what i think is there? i havent shaken the brain thing yet. Aside our old friend practice..heh..heh..

    nothin worse than knowing your letting someone down- least of all yourself. Here's a self protrait from a ref today- not unhappy with this one and i did my first attempt at linework in paint tool sai VIRGINITY GONE. The frog is a character from an anime called wizard barristers a swedish buddy bullied me into watching.
