    keep your hatching much closer! and try and follow the form, doing it angular like that makes it look very flat. try to go through the form and draw the 3d objects, take your time with the curves and don't scribble lines, if a line is not right erase and try again, take it slowly!

    it's hard but really try to keep figures in the page, sketch out the head - toes with a plumb line and two marks and stick to that.

    I needed to make a friend a birthday card at short notice. It came out alright but as i was pressed for time (started at 11 at night) i took some shortcuts. I used the grid method to get the oval right and basic face shapes. I feel bad for doing so but it had to be done.

    Also, I couldnt get the text right for the life of me, so that was done on a school lightbox before giving it to him.

    Its horribly rushed, but i needed something at short notice

    I present:
    Chef excellence.

    I noticed this while doing the drawings, I tried to fix it then but i had already gone too far with the large hatching. I didnt have any time to rub it out and redo. I will be working on your points, thanks again.

    I know its not pretty, but i did two real quick sketches of a room i was in from two different angles. Im still trying to get used to getting proportions right from life.

    It does seem to be getting better however.

    So many god-damn mistakes, but I'm posting it still.

    some nice sketches here. a note on the shading though, dunno what lighting some of them were in but it looks confusing exactly where the main light is coming from. if they were in direct light you need more separation if diffused light you need to gradiate the light as it moves away from the source.

    its time to knuckle down and really lick boot!
    LOOK MOMMY! I laid a sketchbook!

    i agree with you 100%, i never really think about the lighting when i am setting up to draw something. most of them don't have any direct lighting, i should be doing shading a lot differently. Thanks for the advice!

    Two random sketches of faces, first is a few people from an old school photograph i found, the more i do the easier it should get i suppose. I'm looking for any crit people can give on these.

    The second is a page of faces I made up apart from one (bottom left) but that one went horribly wrong so I just drew a triangle on it. Quality is crap, I know.

    Well, life drawing went horribly-
    the model fainted about 15/20 mins in, and had to go off in an ambulance

    Thus the unfinished sketch on the left. The manager of the life drawing place sat down so we drew him but i felt horribly distracted and didn't get much done. I attempted to finish the shading away from the session, but forgot what the guy looked like. So it turned to shit.

    i have flipped the image horizontally and see many issues, next time I will take a mirror!

    Well. This is horrible. I felt inspired by Wesley Burt and attempted to see how difficult overlaying images really is. Turns out its damn hard. He has my respect.

    Still, its a WIP secret Santa present. I need to draw more.
    Will post the finished version when done.

    Well, i would like to spend more time on it but i ran out of time. Given to a friend now.

    Should be a good source of criticism! If i had the time i would rub out the whole left side.

    People are-
    Dude of Due south
    Hayley Williams
    Harry Potter
    and a friend

    Finally took the plunge and started a larger painting, taking far too long to finish.

    I love your work. your oil painting has really come along. The layered piece is amazing, and it does look difficult. This last piece is gonna be amazing.
    And I know how it feel to have nobody respond. I'm in that same boat right now. =\

    Really cool oils! I especially like the eyes at post #45. Don't have any advice though, 'cuz I'm bad with oils.

    Hi,

    You've got a great sketchbook so far, especially with the oil paints. I'm not sure what advice I can give that will be of much help, as you are further along than I am (much further traditionally)

    I guess in the early stages, try and establish your lights and darks as shapes in a sort of distinctive manner? It will also help when choosing your ref to think about that, since in the last painting the lighting seems quite diffused giving it that 'photo' look. It also might not hurt to soften, or 'lose' some of the less important edges.

    That aside, your drawings from life as well as from photo reference are very accurate. Keep up the good work

    Interesting portrait choice in Moammar Gadhafi. Your studies are very good and it looks like you are doing all the right things in terms of practice. I always want to go into museums and do sketches but I hate people looking over my shoulder while I work it make me so nervous. Great work!

    Thanks for the warm response everybody,

    @america220Cheers, I need to get back to work on the oils, spent the last week on photoshop, should start more traditional studies too.
    @Project_SpitfireAlex! post more! :3
    @ZikesI was pretty happy with that eye too, I shall post more ASAP.
    @+daveAwesome, thanks again.
    @CarmenJudyIm hoping to go to one of the Sketchmeets soon, should build up some confidence.
    @thegrayslayerThanks, any criticism though?


    Started some environment studies from imagination, I said I would post everything so here you go. Lots more work to do, but Im definitely enjoying using the Lasso tool. First attempts at original designs.

    No real crits, but I'll keep tracking this sketchbook. Just draw everyday, and get as much life-drawing under your belt as you can. It's SO valuable... as I keep telling everyone until they're sick of me.

    It's a solid start, be good to pick out a bit more of the head form on the side that is in shadow (subtley) - though that could just be my monitor setup.

    I'm seeing some really awesome progress in here
    I'd work on colors more. Sometimes they seem too muddy or dull; don't be afraid to add other colors to the pinks and browns you usually use for skin. It'll give it life.
