    Hey man - I found the best way to learn skintones and portraits: guess what?! SELFPORTRAIT. ;-)
    Get a mirror and start - it works wonders. And as LTPLissken mentioned: photostudies.

    Most important thing is that you enjoy your work, just as you said.
    You have to feel good and happy while you are painting, just like Bob Ross was.
    So for now only happiness, and later the good stuff will come by itself, the sex
    drugs and rock and roll. You just don’t need to rush things. Take it easy, step
    by step. When you paint a head, you stop for a moment, observe it, then rotate
    the canvas, flip it over and back. Step back from the computer screen, take one
    more look. Observe it. Multiple times. Then again paint a bit, then observe.
    Have a beer, coffee or coke. Have a cigar. Paint, observe and repeat. Take
    it easy do not rush, we have a lot of time, the most important is that you enjoy.
    I enjoy watching your latest paintings, cause your head planes and values
    are getting better. You are on the right track. Together we will go to the
    Luna Park if not next week, then next year. Take care till then.

    No worries mate, just keep up. Line accuracy comes from drawing incredible amounts of sketches in your artistic journey. Keep honing the fundamentals and you will go up in no time.

    As always it's nice to see your work Jim. Try to work on your studies more accurately, pay attention where the different elements are in relation to each other. For example distance between eyes, nose tip in relation to mouth etc.

    Καλή συνέχεια

    Hey man, I see cool progress across your sketchbook, your last figures especially. Don't be afraid to use some big hard brushes with deliberate strokes, the fiddly details won't get in your way : )

    You are getting better with every post. The progress is definitely showing. And your monsters and torso practices are very good. I would practice on drawing hands also. It shows with the monster in post #186. But the head and shading is awesome. Just keep drawing

    Thought I would return the favour!

    You're improving, and your understanding of building blocks is getting good, I think my biggest pointer is, be fluid. Perhaps do some gesture work from this website:
    http://www.quickposes.com/

    Get down the spine, angle of hips and shoulders, and then limbs, it'll get you to flow a little. Not that you're bad mind you! Just good practise

    I think out of it all you seem to be struggling with polishing work. I think do some few refined pieces, you don't have to do full pieces, just go in and do refined paintings of an eye or hand, stuff that gets you to be more strict on your polishing. You'll get there, and its great to see your progress. I'm impressed

    Good luck Jim!

    thanks for posting in my sketchbook. You have lots of good studies here. Good construction with your figure studies. The only thing I would say is may broaden your subject. At the mo its all figure studies and I know that because you want to get good at drawing the figure from your mind but maybe mix it up a bit. Also draw lots and lots more from life it really does help with everything and tackling those fundamentals. Maybe do some longer pencil studies to to work on your rendering. Keep up the good work.

    Hey dimi, mega thanks for your comment in my thread. Man, you're really kicking out those fundamentals. Keep that going. Stick with those heads, heads are hard. I would recommend studying the Asaro Head. It will help with the planes of the head. You can find a pretty good gallery >HERE< As ja1307 said above, draw some stuff from life and spend longer on some pencil renders...Good progress so far. Keep on soldier!

    Λοιπόν, στο Πλαίσιο έχει κάτι βιβλία, Leonardo Collection, που έχουν συγκεκριμένες θεματολογίες ζωγραφικής. Πχ πως να ζωγραφίζεις το ανθρώπινο σώμα, άλογα, σπίτια κλπ. Έχω το νο 4 με το ανθρώπινο σώμα και δεν είναι άσχημο, έχει αρκετές λεπτομέρειες και ίσως σε βοηθήσει. Η τιμή είναι μισοσκισμένη αλλά πρέπει να κάνει 6 ευρώ. Τσεκ ιτ άουτ!

    Now you see the true power of perseverance and doing everyday studies,
    you have built up another destroyer starship. Hit another level is what you
    did with your outstanding performance. Tallow and muddy soup running
    on the mouths of our precious observers. That’s the way you should always
    do it. When you feel a presence of a dark haired northern swine, be
    prepared to push the pedal to its maximal grind. You know that
    you improved, so there is a time for you to treat your
    self with chocolate and with a fresh bakery bread.
