    Seems you're getting better with every update, I would suggest drawing from life as well as perhaps attending life drawing classes where possible.

    Monthly update

    @invalid user
    Thanks for the visit and the kind words. I'll be taking a drawing class this month. I'm looking forward to it.

    @Baudolino, Thanks for the motivation.

    Here is my update on the 100 faces project and some "rough" sketches I did at work.

    Thanks for dropping by my SB.

    You are making good progress. Try to get more control with your strokes and stop chicken-scratching. I had that bad habit, and still do, a little bit. If you try avoiding it now, it won't become a bad habit.

    Watch out for perspective and form.

    Keep up these studies !!

    Hey Forestdino thanks for stopping by my thread. I see that a lot of your sketches are on lose pieces of paper might I suggest investing in a nice sketchbook to carry around with you? Its a great way to use idol time and it gets you in the good habit of using good materials and keeping all your work in one place. Also you can use it to draw from life. look into gesture drawling and gesture people walking on the street. Its terribly frustrating at first that they are not standing still but it will help you learn about posture and balance in the figure. Sometimes drawling is a life style more than a hobby keep up the great work, and if you take that approach you'll keep improving.

    I can see the improvement! I think you're doing great and what I love is seeing all the practice, practice, practice that you're doing. Keep practicing the heads in particular, but really, everything, and you'll improve in leaps and bounds!

    All these sketchbooks are very inspiring to me!

    Lookin good! I think you would benefit from drawing some of the face studies on a bigger size, you draw them quite small and I personally find you learn a lot more from drawing them bigger, it also makes shading a lot easier. Keep up the hard work!

    Looking good, keep doing those anatomy studies as much as possible. Check out books from George Bridgman and Andrew Loomis and just study study study!
    I can already see a lot of improvement, just stick with it

    I see a lot of improvement here. Especially in your pencil strokes. They are much more confidently now. Keep it up! And P.S.: Making beer can only be a good thing to do

    Febuary update

    Heres two studies and my first digital paint that I'm half way proud of. I bought Matt korr's basic rendering at crtl-paint and it was worth every penny. I did the digital paint with the tut. Thanks for taking a look.

    Hi there!

    You are really improving! Great to see so much work going into a sketchbook. I think you do need, however, to work on faces in perspective (leaning back/forward, etc).
    Maybe dig out a tutorial and have a go at seeing how to structure them.

    Really like the last study of the jug. I can see that you are really trying to put down the reflected light, but try to observe more (maybe walk a few meter away from the subject/painting and have a look again). Also, the bottom of the jug seems a bit flat, rather than rounded. Just small points though.

    Keep up the good work!
    Best wishes,

    Ana

    March update.

    I've been painting with real paints and brushes, so my sketching has suffered some. Any way, I discovered ARTRAGE, cool program. First two are using Artrage, the third gimp and the last the concept for my painting, which I hope to finish this month. Thanks for taking a look.

    April madness

    Thanx for all those that stopped by my sketchbook even to just take a look. Working on faces and two artrage tries. Still working on my painting, hope to get it done this month, I know I'm taking too long for it. Taking a painting class this month, looking forward to it.

    Thanx for taking a look.

    Wow! Your improvement is stunning!!

    One thing I'll add is when you draw people (faces, etc) think about the structure in planes and shapes as opposed to objects. A bad habit to get into is to think, "this is an eyeball, so I'm going to draw what an eyeball looks like." Draw what you see, not what you think you see!

    Good luck!!

    Keep it up!

    2nd painting

    I finished my second Acrylic painting this week and tried out some sketching in artrage. The artrage stuff needs work, it was supposed to be loose, but it turned out kinda weird. I'm getting to like artrage more and more.
    Thanks for taking a look.

    Yap, your improvement is really good
    Just watch out for the facial proportions.
    You tend to do the nose too long and the eyes too wide.
    These are the two major points that you need to fix when it comes to portraits.

    But your doing definitely good.
    Just keep working from life and also from imagination and you're fine.
    Sil!

    It's really great to see that your drawings are starting to have structure.
