    Your animals and the paintings are pretty strong, good stuff The heads and the life studies seem to be your weak point.
    Keep pushing those life studies though, there's definitely improvement from the first post though, just as someone suggested, draw from life, even if it is for at least 10-15 minutes a day. Keep it up

    Thank you for you comments ranunkel and PLeon! I have started to do more life studies now and it is quite fun! Here are some skull studies again, and also life study from our wood basket. I also tried to do drawings from memory. I was visiting my friends and drew in my mind the chair with the flower on it and the tv table and the tv on it. Then in home I drew them on paper from the memory. I think I'll be doing those practises more too because it was quite fun too!

    Anyways, no fancy updates, but just trying to post here as much as I can to keep me drawing, as this really motivates to draw!

    Also sorry about allways so bad quality in my pictures but I have to take photos as my scanner has been dead for awhile now and alas I am so lazy I haven't bought a new yet :/

    Thanks for the comment in my sketchbook I love your winter tree landscapes and you seem to have made a good start on your figure studies I wouldn't worry too much about colour with the figues at this stage, get the basics down first. Once you're confident with drawing figures and faces then try greyscale to work on value and then move onto colour when you're confident with that ( at least that's what I've read from my time lurking around CA and i think it makes sense )

    Anyways, keep up the good work and motivation and keep enjoying your art

    I do draw every day, but being a busy mum, don't always get time to update.

    Comments and crits are always welcome

    this is a great start to a sketchbook love to see where it goes... you're doing all the right things needed to improve, which is great. i'd like to see more imagination stuff though, the trick is to balance studies with personal work, because that's where you apply the studies and how you really learn your stuff.
    Your oil paintings are gorgeous, I loved looking at them. With your pencils though, it might help if you slowed down, take the time to get the right lines and nice, clean shading - at the moment, they seem slightly rushed.
    keep it going, you're doing great! :]

    Saffire Dragon: Thank you for your tips! I try my best not to rush too quickly on values and colors and just try to keep enjoying learning basics first! Allthough I know I sometimes get carried away with my drawings and try to do things I absolutely can't do yet, such as values!

    Jessibelle: Thank you very much! I try to start uploading some imagination-stuff here too! Haha, I know I get sometimes a little over-exited and hasty with my pencils, you are absolutely right. Allthough most of my pencil works that I post here are quite quick sketches usually, but I will try to start doing some not-so-quick works too!

    Here are some figure studies done using http://www.pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html

    I tried to get them show the movement and the rhythm and also practised spherical forms. These were really fun to do (but really hard) and I think I'll keep practising these some more before turning to box-forms! I'll also try to do some from imagination tomorrow.

    Also adding some still-lives again as I'm trying to do them now every day.

    Here are first some figures from imagination. Trying to apply things I've already learned and trying to get them show the movement.. Don't know how it worked, though, but it was fun! Also made some weird bunny just for fun and some crappy heads from imagination.

    Also adding some still-life studies from a skull and drawing made with black marker (so that it would prevent me trying to add values to drawing yet, like I do with pencils :p) Allthough I think I'll be moving soon to value studies too (not in figures though but in general..)

    Thank you ezekrialase! It is also nice to hear some encouragement!

    Well nothing special here (not again), just more studies. Started to built figures by using box forms but it is darned hard. I will now start studying boxes and spheres and perspective more because I suck. Off to drawing-->

    the boxes and spheres are giving your figures a lovely sense of volume and weight - it's great that you're concentrating so hard on basic structure, it'll really pay off and it looks like you're already improving from it. they have lots of movement and flow aswell; alot of the time, people get so caught up in structure that they lose that, so kudos on avoiding that problem.
    this time my only suggestion is to keep doing what you're doing - more and more and more the black marker drawing is a really good idea, it'll help you think more about the lines you're putting down and that'll carry over to linework and clean-ness in your pencils.
    keep it coming!

    You have a chinchilla as your avatar so you're automatically my favorite person I have one as a pet!
    Really nice work on your figures, keep at it! 100 of everything, break down the body and study it like crazy!
