    Wish you a happy New Year my friend!
    Enjoyed going through your last graphite
    pencil drawing uploads. I respect that
    you have started to implement some imaginaries
    also, that is the way I also do it. A bit of studies, and
    then bam-wham I mix in some imaginary pieces, it just
    makes my learning process much more interesting and keeps
    my brain to stay in shape.
    Drawing facial expressions and shading facial muscles when
    one shouts is not easy at all, I see that you are struggling with
    that also, but you just don't give up. And do not forget to measure
    your proportions from time to time, cause in some cases you tend
    to cut off from the heads, the human skull is just not going the way
    as you have portrayed it on some of your pieces. So, anatomy books
    in your hands, Loomis books in your hands and start doing some damage
    to the world.
    Draw a lot and take care, we will talk later.
    Cheerz.

    what can i say?

    - you are doing anatomy studies: good
    - you are playing with the knowlage you applied: great

    I think that you should do stillife. try to observe stuff around you and notice the simplies shapes, a cup for example can be build from rectangle or square with two ellipses in the top and bottom. observe your object proportions (between height and width for example) when you get it, drawing will get much more easier cheers, keep posting

    You totally should update

    Hi... Not much to say, the others already gave you good advices.
    Your Bridgman studies looks nice. Your heads show you have some knowledge about the human head but need study and practice much more. I gladly take your faces apart if you put some here soon *most innocent smile* But seriously, I have skills at that area
    It seems you tend to give your characters a little less cranium they would deserve...

    Mostly very nice Bridgman studies

    Your profile heads has very little room for brain... Top guy in the last picture: Try to draw or imagine his head without hair... It's unnaturally angular around the hairline, don't you think?
    And there should be more volume in the back. Many people has as long head as high... And even if that's not so, the extra volume go upward in the back because our awesome brain should fit into our skull

    I hope I don't hurt you with these or something, I'm tired and silly by default too but I don't want anything else but help and maybe it's more clear this way than write cold simple statements. I try different approaches, this current one would totally work on me I think

    Don't worry about hurting my feelings at all, I love the crits! Drawing heads with the correct perspective/ proportions has always been a problem for me. I think that's because I'm used to drawing faces with no perspective at all (just looking straight forward at you) so I need to work on that. Thanks for the comment!

    I agree with shiNIN about the heads and one more thing, when doing a pose from imagitation, do a stick figure and then do the pose yourself and see if it's not unconfortable
    keep up the studies ^^

    Well Shinin pointed everything I had to say about those profile xD. So I have no other choice but, say: "Hey man, great gestures and studies!" you really inspired me . Anyway. Your 'guy with shield' could use some more dynamics. You can achieve dynamic composition by drawing in accordance with diagonal lines and curve. Hope you know what I mean, my English sucks in general, but today it's on a higher level of suction, sorry about that ;P

    Hello there mate,

    Good to see you back in business. I see my friend shiNIN has covered most of the flaws. I like the warrior you have drawn from your imagination. my only crit would be to use darkener values as well ( I tend to do this as well when im lazy to use two pencils). Also try to find the book called 'Pencil Drawing techniques by David Lewis' if i haven't mentioned already. Because i guess we both need to work on our strokes.

    well keep up the good work mate. lets see more work of yours.

    Just as the others pointed out, you are cutting off the back of the
    heads, from the side view. Brifgman? is that Bridgman book? Looks
    familiar. Pretty ok studies. In between of the referenced studies, mix
    in some imaginaries also. Those are tough, but very useful.
    Oh, and one more thing:
    post more.

    Don't even dare to misspell the great Bridgman's name. It's without e like scotch whisky.

    I thought you posted a pic too. I'm disappointed.

    (Dont take it too seriously

    But if you won't post something in the near future, I may draw and put here a very happy and even more chibi girl with a pink bow poking a smelly, bloody corpse. You were warned.

    I don't say I won't sit guilty in my room afterwards knowing I overdid it but that will be your fault too. {I have no clue about difficult English tenses sorry})

    (hmmm... don't worry, if you don't take my crack blurb well, I will stop it. it's just how my brain work especially when I'm well or sleepy but I can filter it out... I hope.)

    some bridgman studies and I'm finally getting into loomis (his books are really good.) Lots of imagination in this post along with a couple ideas for a pi day t-shirt contest my school is having. I recently did a little perspective drawing of a section of my room to get some practice in that area too. Comment and critique all you guys want!

    P.S: now that I am finally finished with my scholastic art and writing contest piece i will be able to post some digital things soon =D

    another good bunch of sketches buddy. Doing Andrew Loomis studies always help. well my biggest crit would be your values look too even. try to use some darker values to give depth and a good contrast to the image. You should try to use the book i suggested you @post #42. I guess i mentioned this in the last post as well anyways this is probably happening because you dont change pencils while you draw. so if you are lazy to do so then use a 3B pencil and use pressure variations to archive all the values.

    Devastacio: Thanks for the crit devastacio, the reason why i don't get a wide variation of values isn't because im "lazy," it's because for the vast majority of my day I am in school. I sketch during class with a regular #2 pencil and don't really have the opportunity to switch to a harder one. This weekend I will have a chance to use your advice, so we'll see how i do then.
    This is just a rough wip of a portrait of president obama i'm doing in photoshop, crits are appreciated even though i'm not very far along in it.

    EDIT: btw I am not using the color picker or tracing the photograph (which I will show when I'm done) but using it merely as a reference.

    try to break down the photo into simple shapes first, then add details.
    color isn't necessary at this stage, either.
    what you're doing now is getting too much into the details of the features when the overall structure of the face isn't correct

    and post your photo ref

    hey exekrailase thanks again for critiquing my sketchbook.

    as what vatsel said, you really got to do some contructing in your studies more often, your head studies doesn't look proportion right.

    Well i dont want to discourage you but i also agree with what Vatsel said. Before you step into rendering its always good to get your construction of the head correctly. This helps you to avoid disappointments. My advice is take some time and draw heads as much as possible. use references if you need but dont just copy em. After all, practice is the remedy to all diseases.

    hello there, I like your update in post #46. And about your newest post: Start form the sketch, establish simplest shapes, shadow and value, then render it out and get to the detail. Remeber, when it comes to painting or drawing there is one basic rule. First start from big shapes, then get to more detailed objects. Wish you luck, cheers.

    I think you copy well... I mean, the features are in their place. They are just drawn there without any thought about showing forms through values but I don't want to criticize your approach too much, it's natural you don't do it perfectly at this point. But it's good to know the others are right, it's not good to start with details forgetting about forms and shadows.
    The eyeball isn't completely white. It's a little ball, most of it turns away from the light more or less... But don't use gray either, because there's the skin around it, blood vessels, whatnot. It's good to mix the surrounding colors into everything anyway, a face looks odd if you just use colors without any relation to each other.

    Great Bridgman and Loomis studies.
    So what's the holdup?
    Time for another update friend.

    Good updates, man. I can already see some pretty significant progress from the earlier posts -

    One thing I'd throw out there is copying anatomy drawings from books is good - probably the best way to get a feel for it initially, I dunno - BUT, nothin beats drawing from life. Even if you don't have time to hit up a life drawing class or any of that stuff, just practice drawing your foot while you're sketchin. Left hand, dog, sister, blahblahblah. It helps you interpret 3d form for yourself and get a feel for it - I don't do this enough - must continue.

    Good work, man.

    I see that you started slacking real hard lately,
    and papa Bridgman will not be happy about this.

    sorry for the long hiatus, I've had a lot of stuff to do and haven't been able to get to a scanner for some time.

    this is just some bridgman/ loomis studies mixed in with a lot of imaginative work. On a good note I've finished the generalized figure drawing section of my Bridgman book and am moving on to the head/ detailed anatomy sections. I'm also trying to learn a little more about perspective when I have time; this is just the really basic stuff now. Soon I'll hopefully have some actual buildings/ forms in perspective to show you all!
