ryanoir Haha, that's what I'm looking for. Thanks a lot man. I cracked open my Loomis PDF and got to studying. Going to do more today as well. Thanks for stopping by.
Justas Thanks a lot man. Color is not my forte, I really need to crack down and do some color studies.
LtPlissken Thank you sir. Hope you had a good one.
Halogen No Problem, your stuff is great. Thanks for dropping in!
Andrew Sonea You're Welcome. I think the angular feel comes from the way I've been formally taught over the past couple semesters. My professor teaches using what he calls 'Inflection Points' It's like the angles underneath a curve. Guess it transferred over to my sketches. Thanks for pointing it out!
Icecold Thanks a lot man, I really do need to start painting more now. I just need to get over immense fear of painting in Photoshop I suppose.
kiwigarbage Haha, thanks. I thought about it for a while before I decided to drop the job. But I think it'll pay off in the end. Thanks again for stopping by.
Sidharth Chaturvedi Sid, thanks a bunch man. I look forward to figure painting. Appreciate the comment.
Well Christmas is done and over. It's time to get to work. I took ryanoir's advice and started studying Loomis' Head and Hands. Included are some pre-Loomis study, imagination, trash. Some Loomis studies. A couple poop self portraits (I'll never finish a self portrait...) And an awful attempt at painting from imagination in PS. I'm the worst, someone help me? I wont promise anything but I should have another update tonight, I'm drawing all day. Until then, here it is..

You are right, Loomis is the law!
Try to work with the brightness and contrast on your photographed drawings,
can improve some visuals;
I like this last digital guy, like his eyes.

very nice work, planar heads and so on are good as some ppl said, i notice it too cos its something i really need to learn to do
my crit would be to work more in larger sizes, i think your studies suffer from some slight small proportion problems and working in larger sizes might help bring these to light and thus get you working on them. i think it would be good if you could do more drawings of a similar size to those in post #3, or filling up an entire a4 page, imho. hope this helps

Your digital isn't as bad as you think. You just need to get used to colour in Photoshop. It is too desaturated for starters, and this makes him look sickly or dead. You also need to vary the hue more. His whole face is one colour, when in reality there are subtle shifts in colour--the forehead is typically slightly yellower than the rest of the face, and the nose/cheeks/ears are redder and more saturated while the jaw/chin has a faint greeny blue tint that is caused by stubble (even if they just shaved the translucency of skin shows the hair that is below the surface). Lastly try putting in some darker tones as right now the whole image is very light. I would darken his hair especially.Website

LtPlissken Thanks man. I have to figure out how to make my scans look like 'not piles of shit'
aks9 Hey, thanks. I was actually thinking about studying in a larger scale today as well. Felt myself drawing smaller and smaller. Tomorrow is going to be a big study day. Will do some larger stuff then. Thanks for stopping by!
Andrew Sonea Thanks a lot man! That's the kind of information I'm looking for, very informative. What do you recommend for studying in Photoshop? I usually start a photo study, then lose motivation and then just draw garbage.
matty_mcmullen Haha, thanks man. You're stuff is incredible man, thanks for stopping by. Wish some of your digital skillz would rub off onto me. Until then I just have to practice my own self. Dammit.
ryanoir Yoooo mannng. Thanks, your recommendation was a good one. Just wish Loomis' Head and Hands wasn't a million pages long. I can study it for hours and only get like 10 pages in.
gen5 You definitely should! He's the best.
Doom-Breath Thanks for stopping by man. Appreciate the compliment.
Well I drew just about all day, started studying then just ended up drawing from imagination, mostly trash. Kinda made me realize I'm awful at drawing anything below the neck though. Going to work on figures tomorrow. And maybe a few Photoshop color studies. Until then.

I'm glad that you're still doing your stylized stuff too! Loomis is valuable, but it's notorious for producing a bunch of artists that draw alike. Don't lose your voice as an artist, but don't forsake proportion and anatomy

Hey man, thanks for visiting my SB. Good job knocking out the studies! Keep going with that. Im in the same boat. One thing I can say is not to worry too much about technique and rather worry about a. Story b. Design c. Dimension. Think of what your trying to show, what the purpose is of your illustration or study. Think about how the principles of design apply. Think about how to make your work dimensional. A and B sort of go hand in hand I think while c is just the necessary part of believability. Like keeping a straight face while lying. I dont know, maybe your smarter than me.. all I know is I really got myself intro trouble thinking too much about shit that doesnt matter. Keep on truckin' man!

kiwigarbage Thanks! I'm using Loomis as more a reference. It was mentioned that my construction was off so I just studies him a bit to see what I should change.
bpic Thanks a lot man! Really useful comment. I do mostly worry about technique and such, should really worry more about what I'm drawing. Thanks again!
ryanoir Thanks man. This next reference is stolen from you!
So I didn't get as much done today as I would of liked to. Did a few pages of figure studies, nothing worth posting. But, I did try and jump into some Photoshop photo studies. I think they're garbage, but I learned a little bit..I think. About 2 hours each.

thanks for the kind words on my sb.
I have noticed a recurring thing between your last few portraits that I didn't see before. As everyone says "loomis is the law" remember that the head should be around 5 eye-width's in width when looking straight on. Several of yours are wider than this so I thought I'd bring it to your attention. I'm sure if you just "shaved" a little of the sides (as he does with his ball and plane method) then it would add a lot of realism to your portraits.
