Here is first Alla Prima painting I made today outside, because it was such a beautiful day. Also some perspective and mannikin studies. The values I added on that one mannikin drawing really suck.. I should really really study them more more more. Could someone recommend me a good book about values? I mean not just on figures but in general..

You really are improving fast! Doing all those studies is really showing. Good job!
Few pointers for speedpainting. Use big brush to plot major areas of color. I know it's tempting to jump into those details and whack them with small brush but the result looks scribble and with opacity and flow in the works the color looks dirty and will be completely different from the color you intended. Also to avoid dirty color try not to use opacity/flow stuff and instead in initial phase use full flow and opacity.
Oh and one last thing. In your latter speedpaint (stairs with flowers etc.) you seem to have used pure white in the harsh light areas. This is a common mistake but if you eyedrop the color from the photo it's not actually pure white but very light yellow.
Again great job with the studies! keep it up!

Thank you for your encouraging words, Ville! And thank you for really good advices about speedpaintings! I will follow these tips in my next speedpainting.
Here are two terrible value studies. One with my cardboard cube, cylinder and pyramid with nature's light (coming from window), and other one with mannikin and flashlight. Been drawing so little these few days, aargh. Could someone just tell me to stop slacking?

Oooh, excellent figure and gesture studies. I'm such a scaredy-cat when it comes to figure studies.

Thank you jorvaa! Figure studies have always felt kind of scary and challenging to me too, but I have found Posemaniacs and Gesture Drawing tool very helpful for that!
Doing quick gesture drawings is actually really fun and not scary at all!
Well here are again some 30sec drawings from posemaniacs. Also tried negative space drawing, which was quite interesting but also surprisingly hard. Then I also made couple of figures from imagination and tried to do negative space drawings of them too.

Your lines have improved a lot! Also, great work on the figures with dramatic perspective. They're damn hard to do but those look amazing

I would love to see more pencil drawings and sketches of people with at much value and detail as the cat and dog (akita/shepard mix?) on your first post. The cat's eyes are really beautifully rendered.
Nice gesture and posing sketches here though - I'll enjoy keeping an eye out for more from you!"They said, please, please make love with Helen, we require an assertion of value, we are frightened."

Hey, you have amazing studies. Your drive is brillient, personally I have to do stuff from imagination or I'll go crazy. Hats off to you or sticking at the studies. I particulary like your digital photo studies, you can see improvement with each one, keep it coming!

Saara: Kiitos paljon! I think these negative space drawings are doing good to my lines!
etneid: Thank you very much! I know I should do more detailed and time-consuming drawings, but somehow it is just really hard to start them, don't know why. Maybe because the time spent drawing is so short after working days? But I will start doing more detailed drawings very soon.. Maybe not faces yet because my anatomy sucks still. But something else, maybe still lives or bones!
Riox: Thank you, glad you like my studies! I will try to keep em coming as often as possible!
Well here are some more studies, something weird from imagination and a terrible speedpainting (took 2hours and it still sucks, darn). Why is it always so that I can see the faults when I've decided to stop painting. Will I really get better in these by doing them, will I will I?
The speedpainting is a screenshot from Von Hertzen Brothers' music video "Angel's Eyes". Beautiful song and a really good band, you should listen if you haven't yet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azfL3IsdWi4
Oh and I was thinking of starting the anatomy studies next week with Bridgman's book and my skeleton.
