    Its not bad for the second try not bad at all, just keep drawing. You need more contrast, a darker tone would do the trick

    It's been way too long since i posted , wich means i should be way more active .

    Im gonna try to draw as much as possible everyday and post if i draw something that's decent :p .

    Anyway here are some drawings and speedpaints i made for my exams (didnt pass tho , so i really need to start and work my ass off ) .

    Don't feed pidgeons , they are filthy

    Here is a speedpaint i made for an assignment i where i had to make a speedpaint of a waterwell in a forest and i had to make it interesting by lighting and composition . this one was the best of the 3 speedpaints i made , the others ones we're sucky .Painting it took about something less than an hour .


    Don't feed pidgeons , they are filthy

    This was an assignment where i had to pick 4 interesting objects in my room and put them in a good composition and paint them in Photoshop , this one took about 4 hours .

    Don't feed pidgeons , they are filthy

    Don't feed pidgeons , they are filthy

    Don't feed pidgeons , they are filthy

    Face studies and final drawing for a western villian i had to "design"

    this mite seem like negative advice, but try less creative work and more studying, its still important to keep your ideas documented and sketches, but dont spend as much time rendering them out, more just line work. or studying similar poses and lighing from your memory after observing it in reality. then when you have that understanding youllhave the tools you need to express your creativity.

    that sounded a nicer comment in my head, either way keep studying and you'll be fine

    Hey , the advice doesnt sound that bad as you think :p .
    I know i need to get the fundamentals mastered before i can do all the cool stuff .
    I think i need to draw more from life , some posemaniacs and anatomy studies .
    And i'm also gonna try to do some digital painting by trying to do quick studies of photos .

    The figures from artsyposes look good, maybe you should try more linework? Maybe 30 second sketches from the refs at www.posemaniacs.com? It's a really useful website! Oh and h it'd be great to see something digital, like a lifestudy. The one you did with the cup had good colours. Keep it up =)

    Fast sketches are a great training and also a very good warm up so try to do them quite often Something that i once got as advice and really learned from as well is to try and draw something in one line, it gives you a different feel towards line quality.
    Also try and use some different materials, there are somet hings you pick up faster if you for example use ink every now and then and it'll even improve your pencil drawings if you try it

    What books and such are you checking out? If you haven't looked into Andrew Loomis' books I'd give those a go. But with any book and reference don't just copy it blindly. Observe and understand it. Thats the hardest part for an artist.


    Do stuff from imagination and photos but as hard as it is do some from life too. (something I need to do more as well lol) Like your still life above, that looked quite good. Practice more of those I'd say.


    Though most importantly just obviously keep at it. Think I saw someone saying to focus less on rendering, I'd do that and just keep sketching as much as you can, whatever you see whatever you think of.

    Nice sketchbook! And you're totally right. Pigeons are filthy creatures and we shouldn't feed them.

    Hi guys , i'm making a flyer for one of my friends his party/rave .

    He asked if i could make a cartoon of some guys chilling on the streets and dont know what to do on a friday night . But they eventually decide to go to that party .

    So the story i wanna create is that theyre bored and are whining that their town is dead . and one of them is looking on the ground and finds a flyer to that party .
    So this is one of the bigger frames and also the last one where you see the flyer with all the info .

    I took a picture of my hand holding a piece of paper and used it as ref , so it was kinda a study :p .


    cheers

    I approve of your thread thumbnail.

    Keep it up man, your studies are getting better, and that construction work in the last couple of posts is sure to help. Would love to see more sketches though, simple pencil stuff from life is a great way to learn, and you can do it anywhere.
