    Take some time away from observation and work on drawing from imagination. It's fun! It also gets creative juices flowing, and I think it helps with line work. You will focus more on your lines, rather than the objects. Hope this helps! Great progress so far!
    I'll go back to do some more perspective work tomorrow! Thank you for the kind words.

    Haha thanks, at the time I was doing Muay Thai-boxing weighing 55kgs, I started working out to 60kg, quit Muay Thai, watched my diet and worked my way up to 70kg with some addes gymnastics. I'm a full time gymnast now at 73kg. Took me around 2-3 years.

    Some more spiral staircases (that word brings chills to my bones) and some lips!

    Oh ok.

    Also nice stairs!

    For the lips think of overlapping forms. That usually helps me.

    Good to see you're trying to get back into drawing everyday. I would suggest working from life as much as you can. You will see faster, better results that way. I noticed I didn't start to improve until I started drawing still-lifes. Maybe try doing some self-portraits looking into a mirror, rather than using photographs.

    Keep it up =]

    Your coloring is looking really good! I think you'd really benefit from doing some eye studies as well--lots of your eyes kind of have an awkward oval shape when eyes have all sorts of varied shapes and styles (almond, round, etc.) Your animals and shapes are really beautiful! I love your painting style, it's so smooth!

    @Black Sun S, bowiepunk15, Big Orange - thanks a lot! I'd rather draw from real life as well, but for now I'm using a lot of photographs because I don't really have a lot of interesting stuff here in my room or good lighting.

    @Okamichu Thanks, although my 'style' isn't really anything consciously, it's how I try to make my art as good as it can be in this style. I took your eye advice to heart and started working on it right away

    Symmetry in the eyes is hard, but more often than not, they aren't totally symmetrical. A lot of people are more heavy lidded in one eye than the other, or the angle of their head changes the shape of one into something very different than the other.

    The eyes you've drawn recently are much much more improved than your others from before. c: And just lots of improvement across the board for you. Keep it up!

    If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
    I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

    Great sketchbook we've got here. Your dedication to study is inspirational and amazing! You've improved quite a bit from the first page. You can only continue to go up from here so keep it up dude. Also, awesome job on those last few eyes! Do more of them! Set yourself some goals..like okay I'm going to draw 100 different eyes or 100 different noses. It gets you motivated and pumped and if it is something that is difficult for you to draw in the first place you will improve rapidly. So yeah, keep drawing! Can't wait to see more. Let's see some more still lives.

    Alright then challenge accepted! I wont stop drawing eyes until I've drawn at least 100.

    This is my first one, I have no idea how I should approach the actual iris itself, now I'm just doing some squiggly lines lol

    Okay I did another one because #YOLO

    I'm trying to focus more on picking the correct values and to be more confident in my lines instead of trying to blend everything together

    2/100 eyes

    Might want to think about simplifying the eye too, for a couple. Every lash is a pain to draw, and when so painstakingly drawn, they don't usually look too realistic. It might be interesting to try and simplify that section into something a little more solid, so that there is a dark bar for the lashes (kind of like eyeliner) with a few lash tips poking out.

    It's just a thought, something to experiment with. c: Looking forward to the next 98. Good luck!

    Aye good stuff. You've already improved, and you can only go up. Onto the eye's though, I wouldn't worry about fully painting all the eyes, maybe sketch some, try to get the shapes down, limiting your brush strokes, Try different things. Remember to set goals you feel you can achieve, It's better to set smaller goals and achieve them, then being overly ambitious and failing on a goal. Only you can decide on what you can do and can't though. Don't sell yourself short though.

    Also I wouldn't spend too much time on such a specific area. so far I've grouped up my anatomy studies into body parts, Leg's, Torso, head and then more specific area's I'm having trouble or want practice with I'll give a few studies or practice drawings. If you just work on eyes alone, you'll get really good at eyes, but you'll probably be lacking in other things such as placement on the face.

    Anyway that's just me and what my approach would be, I'm in the same position as you trying to improve and learn hard
