You're already getting better :-) Keep it up!
I've viewed many many sketchbooks on here and it seems people take giant leaps once they delve into serious anatomy study. Good luck!
It took me like three hours to finish the shading on your upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done.
My sketchbook (it'll get good near the end)
Keep going these studies are looking very good! Can see some resemblence in those portraits and samual sponge looks really cool. Just keep up those studies!!
Yea man keep going. Your on a good track learning anatomy.
I started about a year ago with no previous practice and looking at your stuff is like taking a look at my older stuff, I know that right now things can get very frustrating, but it gets better if you work at it. I promise The biggest advice I can give is work constantly, every day. Don't stop! Doodle on the bus, draw whenever you have a second and the results will show.
The second piece of advice is to analyze the subject carefully, take your time and really look at it. Also don't rush into color until you're very comfortable with value studies and line work.
Hope this helps, now draw some more !!!!!
This is my first post on here (haven't started a sketchbook yet), but I wanted to comment on your portraits. You did a great job in catching their likeness, even though you say that you're a beginner. I recognized the Christopher Walken picture before you even mentioned who it was. I find that amazing.
I have noticed that on your eyes you still seem to simplify things a bit too much, try to observe a photo of an eye very carefully. Notice how the eye itself is round and how you can suggest that with different line strokes and shading.
Also these tutorials might help:
Good luck and keep studying.
