Hi everyone, i'm 19 and i love to draw stuffs
I'm relatively new to the forums and hope everyone can give me critics to help me improve on my drawings I'm still a beginner when it comes to drawing so i hope you guys can help me with it.
First one was a painting of a model which my friend found on google images. Can't seem to find the name of the model though. This was a photo reference.
Second one was BoA a korean singer. This was also referenced from a photo of her album cover because my human anatomy skills are still weak so i still need to practice more on them.
Shall upload more soon and probably do some quick sketching.

I really like the hair on the first one. These are nice. Maybe look at blending and softening without loosing the color you have. There seem to be some facial attributes missing around the eyes and mouth. I would suggest looking at your reference and ask yourself some questions about the form. These are great on the Macro side of things.
Nice start, it's obvious that you can nail rendering pretty well at this stage. Don't hurry with these quick studies like in the latest post, try to understand forms, it'll help to improve. It's better to spend more time on actually learning the object than just quickly draw it.
Try Bridgeman's guide to artistic anatomy, might help a lot too.
i love the first face you drew. The sketches are pretty good too. Good job
Awesome work man, liking the blending in your latest piece. Though, I can see what you're saying about the blending being a bit too smooth. Maybe you can try creating a texture brush and lightly go over the areas that you are blending.
nice portraits, but they look kinda flat, study some forms to practice core and cast shadow, and they apply it to your portraits an presto... : ) keep up the good work
Nice details on the torso and head of the soldier. Really like the lighting in it.
haha thanks glad you like it
haven't been drawing that much because i overwrite the wrong psd file and my hard work was gone!
but nevertheless i drew abit. Still figuring out how this guy is going to be like? i kept thinking of adding a serpent-like lower body (naga) but somehow it looks weird. I've also thought of making it a centaur but it will look like a mess? centaur with wings? looked kind of weird. As for the arms i still need to research more because im not getting what i want here.
Anyone care to give some suggestions?
One way I think you can make this easier for yourself is by doing quick, dirty studies of anatomy. Just focus on the arms for now. But, don't just see and copy, try to understand what you copy. Figure out how the muscles move, how they work...Not just how, but why they work, why they are like they are.
Of course, this sounds mighty heavy, but it really isn't. Just takes some patience and some trial and error and you will eventually end up with being able to render things like arms, legs, necs, pecs or whatever with relative ease.
Your values seem to be pretty good too, just keep in mind that you need contrast where you want the eye to focus. Try to lighten up some areas on the chest, and head.
lastly: do studies. Lots of 'em. Dedicate studies to special things, and just go with it. I don't personally have as much time as I want for my own studies, but by god do they help.
I just hope that I haven't told you way too much that you've been told already.
Good luck, and keep up the good work : )
