    I found it really helpful to paint the same face from many different angles, in black+white, using this reference: http://eyedrawthings.com/?page_id=3

    It really helps your brain see the face as a 3D object. (:

    Lack luster update today... I really need to work on the confidence of my lines With traditional I got into the (bad) habit of putting down a lot of lines to explore the one I really wanted. I need to figure out how to break that habit and the line I want the first time? (the line drawings look terrible.)

    As per LMagpie's advice I checked out http://eyedrawthings.com/?page_id=3 and did a few paintings of the same facial expression I'm probably going to do a few more tonight and tomorrow.

    A bunch of poses, most from imagination. A few from reference.

    any comments are really appreciated.

    Your studies are coming along great, and I especially like the set of three faces from different angles in #33.

    I think looking into anatomy will definitely help with getting the features of the face and the construction of the head right, but don't stop doing what you're doing either.

    Little Maiden's advice is good - work bit by bit and you'll get there. Keep going and good luck!

    tried to just guess at the lighting. I don't know if it reads at all but I wanted the arm cannon to be emitting light from withing :/ did not come out well at all I really need to start practicing matterials and do some lighting studies if I ever want to do Sammy Aran some justice.

    your digitals are progressing quicklier than your traditionals. A good way of stopping the sketchy lines is to use pen or markers for a long while. For example, do a lot of marker caricatures. They boost your line confidence in no time, because you have to get a good likeness, good proportions, and make it funny- without using scratchy marks. You kind of can't make mistakes lol. Especially within a time limit. It also helps your character development in terms of personality, and facial expressions. For good figures, do anatomy, etc.

    It's a long road, but there's a lot of help in these days. Good luck!

    Hey thanks for stopping by my SB!

    You're doing good, uhm just try to spend some time on working on cleaner shapes...otherwise just keep up the hard work!

    And for my refs, I pull them from all over really...uhm I get most of my figure refs from pixellovely or lovecastle. Uhm otherwise it's usually just a lot of google, life stuff, or random tumblrs...as well as loomis and bridgman pdfs.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

    I think the lighting on the metroid piece looks pretty good actually but I would imagine the light from the arm cannon would be more tinted like greenish or blueish (as I remember I think the arm cannon beam was blue in smash bros brawl can't remember completely though).

    Anyway great work keep it up.

    Hi, thanks for dropping by my sketchbook! I think you are showing real dedication from all of your paintings. I particularly liked your self portrait on the first page.

    Probably the best advice for a painter is to keep working on your drawing and observational skills. Have you tried doing any still lifes? Anything "from life" helps to breathe new, well, LIFE into your paintings. I highly recommend it. Sitting in a cafe or other public area is also a great way to get real world drawing experience, same with offering to do a portrait of a friend or family member. Alternatively, if you have any pets or animals around the house/neighborhood/whatever, they are great to draw too. I love stalking my cat around.

    Anyhow, that is my suggestion to you... continue with your paintings, for sure! Just don't forget about the drawing skills and other fundamentals, too.

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. The only critique I can give you is to do more stuff with pencils and paint from life. Do still lifes and paint and draw yourself using a mirror. I know it can be daunting at first but it will get easier in time. All figurative drawing is based on reality so that's why you should study reality itself by looking around you and capturing what you see. Photos are good for reference. For example drawing a tiger is pretty much impossible without a ref. Imagine yourself drawing a live tiger which moves constantly and could kill you at any second. So don't neglect photos, just remember to do stuff from life also. Hope you understand what I'm saying. Otherwise keep on going !
