    I agree with smuli, I think it would be a good practice to set yourself an illustration brief and deadline, develop your idea, and then do studies that supplement the illustration as you paint it, it might help in your absorbing of the information. Just a thought, keep up the good work

    Odayga: Thankyou! Will do!

    Andre-Sutherland: Thanks man.

    Sean McClain: Thanks ser!

    Smuli: Yeah, no denying it. I should definately do more my own things.Too often (Especially when I don't have any clear idea in my head for a painting) I go the study route.
    Sometimes, especially when you have limited time, it's just easier.

    Nicola: Thanks!

    Thomas M.: Agreed. In that sence I find COW, EOW, etc. challenges really useful. Really should do more of those.

    And after aknowledging how I should do more my own thing I give you more studies.

    Nice. Keep it up! I know exactly about feeling like not going anywhere for a long time. I was there. But you have to get over it! I can relate to much studying with little finished results. I like it that way, but I know it's gonna benefit in the end. If a finished piece doesn't mean anything, I must keep studying. Something will change. Just believe. [If it's all still relevant what I'm saying that is]

    Poetry Man:Thanks for the encouraging words man! Really apreciate it!

    Now this is just a small sketch. A sketch of a cow. But to me it sort of represents revolution. You see, one thing I have been batling with is a) trying to figure out how to make that plain planar look and b) trying to figure out the fine art way of drawing aka. blocking-in technique. Both aims relate to same goal which is trying to figure out how to simplify the form and how to keep structure clear.

    For some reasons both a and b have been problematic for me. There are things that I can't quite wrap my head around. But today...today something clicked.
    I think I finally figured out how to do the blocking-in as it should be done.
    And this small sketch is first indication of that...I think.

    Now all I need is more time to test it out...

    Yeah, I feel like I'm in stasis. Infact, I have felt like that for long time now. Constant repeating of exercises yet nothing seems to be sinking in.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm just so close of getting what so many artists seemed to have grasped already, yet, when I make a move to grab it it vanishes in a puff of smoke.
    So incredibly frustrating. I hope that improvement step is right around the corner becasue I seriously need it to up my moral.

    Some sketches:
    Maybe you should try some exercises that you haven't done before? Get some of the exercises from related fields like design and try and find a way to apply it to your work.

    I don't think you are in too much trouble though. Your skill is exceptional

    wasted today trying to get something done with charcoal. Only thing I really achieved was royally pissing myself off. Seriously, How in the hell do people control this stuff!?!

    Love the marks and matte black you can achieve with it but holy flying #¤"¤¤#"¤"# it lifts off easily. I seriously can't wrap my head around how people can work with it .
    sigh....and the mess. Maybe I should just stick with graphite.
    The painful thing is that I know I won't. As long as there's amazing charcoal art out there I will keep wanting to make something like that and I'll grab a set of charcoals and start bashing my head against the brickwall again...and again...and again.
