    Ups and downs this week. Done some studies that I think really showed some improvement, then when I tried to keep up the improvement it seemed like I went two steps back.

    Life drawing also failed this week. Certain parts, like the chest and head I just could not get right and I also went a bit crazy with the blending stick I think. Bring on next weeks class to try and correct this!

    Bottom two are from the class.

    More of the same this week but with a little less work to show. Spent some of it reading and doing other stuff. (ME3 *cough*)

    More of the same... figures, portraits and life drawing. Jumped back into Loomis too to pick up on the more advanced perspective.

    Things I need to work on are nailing down the features on portraits, the lastest one I did showed me how much the slightest error in measuring can really mess up the end result. Other thing is to use an easel while doing the life drawing, skewed the image slightly and didn't notice until it was pointed out the end.

    More studies, mostly the same. Added in some perspective this time, used photoshop for ease, plus the colour selection helps keep the lines clear.

    Another model lying down this week, once again I struggled with it. I can't quite grasp the form of the torso lying down, and it ends up as a blob. Need to work on that fo' sure!

    Another perspective dump, plus some mor studies from photos. This weeks end result from life drawing I think is my best yet, although the hands are messed up. However my drawing process still needs some major improvement, I spent nearly an hour on the legs.

    First image is my first ever self portrait! I've already noticed many problems with it but hopefully I'll iron these out as I do more of them. I plan on trying to do one every week atleast. More perspective work too, moving onto 2point, also used my new tablet a bit with them.

    Bottom image is from my life drawing class. Again I struggled as the model was lying down, the very sublte foreshortening on everything really made it difficult.

    Did a quicker self-portrait than last week. I did a better job on the mouth area but after flipping the image I seemed to have skewed it or made a certain part too long. The eyes also look odd. Bring on my next attempt!

    Plus more perspective grids and my life drawing image.

    Cheers!

    Couldn't go to life drawing this week due to work, and my attempt
    at doing a self-portrait failed. The end result looked like I had gone
    back in time 3 months. Instead of continuing on with full portraits I
    did some studies of the eye, as that's the part I've been really
    struggerling with in self-portraits.

    Plus a figure drawing, more perspective and another sweep of the Bridgman book!

    Couldn't go life drawing again... due to work. More Bridgman stuff and another
    self portrait. Turned out better than the previous, but I've stretched the
    nose area I think. More perspective too, with an attempt at adding values to
    the final one.

    Wow so much progress! I love seeing how your line quality has slowly changed. And great work with torsos (I am still so bad at getting it right). Keep it up!

    @ SolarSector & JerryActric Thank you both for the compliments!

    I've been carrying a small sketchbook with me so I can sketch people/things as
    I travel to and from work, here's where I am so far. Also managed to get up
    on the roof of my work and draw a local garage, I think it's my first real attempt at an environment.

    Cheers!

    Finally managed to get back to the life drawing classes, despite coming down
    with the flu! Seems like missing two classes has thrown me off track a bit.
    Also more self-portraits. I wasn't happy with the first one so I did another,
    which I am much happier with.

    Plus more perspective, studies and my first bit from Jack Hamm's Drawing
    Scenery book. Looking forward to reading more of it.

    This week I can see some slight improvement over the model lying down.
    I need to find some way to practice this sort of thing outside of the class too,
    using pictures is just not the same.
