Hi everyone, my name is Wil, i`ve been drawing since i was a lil kid but only recently started studying seriously, i`m selftaught. I`ve been lurking around conceptart for quite some time admiring the great artists around here, and i finally decided it was time to start a sketchbook, for the purpose of improving, of course, so i will greatly appreciate any tip of advice you can give me.
So today i will be posting some face studies, and i`ll update this sketchbook as often as i can, so i`ll thank any feedback you can give me from now on.

Wow, very nice start! Glad to see that you've got the pen/pencil skills down. More more more!
Here's my Book of Sketches

Thanks Cozmo, glad you liked it, time to dump what i`ve been doing lately, a lot of quick figure studies, some gesture drawings, more faces and a few sketches for some drawings in progress.
Here`s a bit more, damn i`m messy.
A few things i got done today. Once again, any criticism will be greatly appreciated.
Here are some more studies i did today. I`m trying to get as good as i can with human anatomy and portraits, so i`m mostly doing studies such as these and some gesture drawing too, i was wandering if i was right focusing on these kind of studies, any piece of advise? Thanks! And i just realized my hands suck, so i`ll be probably drawing a lot soon.
I realized that hands were quite a weak spot so i started working on them, here is what i got done so far, i`d appreciate any piece of advice you can give me on my studies, thanks!
Here`s a bit more, i`m still trying to find a head drawing method i`m comfortable with, so i experimented a little, i`ll keep on doing that until i get the one for me. Any advice on this would be great.
take a shot at loomis heads, ur bridgeman heads look strong but with maybe a too pointy chins. keep up with the great studies !
Thanks a lot violet! i haven`t really had much practive with bridgman, i was trying to get some info on the reilly drawing method but i can`t seem to find anything that will help me with it. So far i like loomis the best, and you`re right about the chins!
Well, it seems somehow my scanner is not working, so this is going to be a shorter update than planned. I got my very first wacom a few days ago, so i have been playing with it, it`s awesome, so next updates should have more digital stuff. I`m new to digital painting so I would really appreciate any advice and help you guys could give me for my development as an artist. I`m still working on some of these but here they go.
A study i`ve been working on for to many hours now, got to move on...
nice hatching and great light-shadows in the digi stuff! Keep on posting!
Thanks surus! Well i`ve been lazy for some time. Now that i got a wacom i`ve been trying to figure out how to use colors, since i never tried them before ( i always worked with grayscales) and i seem to be having a lot of problems with them, i`m mainly trying to get some decent flesh tones, not easy. Here are some thingies i`ve done, i would really appreciate any advise on colors, maybe a book recommendation, basic theory, how to approach the subject, anything would help me, thanks in advance!
Some more crapy attempts to achieve decent skin, please tell me what you think!
Thanks. Here`s another one.
Some more things, still trying to figure out flesh tones, any crit appreciated.
Some more thingies.
Little study, got it as far as i could.
Some pencil portraits, a quick still life from today and a paintining thingy
