    LastGen's Path of Improvement

    Hi,
    My name is Lukas, I'm 17 years old and I come from Germany.

    I want to become better at drawing and painting. Inspired by all the great artists around here.

    cool, stuff.
    That portrait is really cool. The blacks seem almost too back. There aren't many mid tones. the facial proportions seem a pinch off but I have similar issues there I think it just comes with time and effort.
    the water is really cool though.

    I like the foot studies.

    Hey JamesMcCauley, thank you very much!

    I see what you mean. The problem of the shadows of that portrait is that she has a really bright skin color and the flashes made her skin almost white.
    But drawing this portrait helped me a lot, it was hard to manage the proportions and finally...they´re not correct.

    Thanks again

    Excellent studies for a beginner, but Ryanoir is right to say what he said. Also, I would like for you to look up a guide on perspective.

    ryanoir_Yes, I bought Bridgeman´s Constructive Anatomy and a random anatomy book for art students. Thanks again!
    What do you mean when you say I should loose up? I guess you´re talking about specific body parts like hands and feet

    FightingSeraph_You´re right, perspective is an important thing I shouldn´t neglect. Are there any books you could recommend, too?

    Thanks!
