    the head of the robot looks flat, is it a purpose? There is a ball like head in the initial sketch, right? The flat one looks quite weird...
    but nice stuf anyway, I also like your colours...

    ja1307: Thank you very much !

    jablar: Yeah I agree - I really need to work on painting textures, and I could have put a lot more thought into the design there I think. Stuff to learn for next time ! Thanks for stopping by!

    --

    Another long break ! I am determined to paint more so more regular updates to come!

    Quick environment practicing getting texture into pieces and making my own custom brushes. Spent about an hour and a half on it. Really enjoying it so probably going to continue with it tomorrow, adding more definition and planning a ship or something in the sky to make it more interesting and give it scale ^_^.

    Progress on the last WIP I posted. It doesn't look like I've done much but just this small amount took forever ! Just trying to work everything out... I blocked in some ships to interest but I don't think I'll bother with them as they just don't seem to fit however I try and put them in!

    Finally worked up the courage to go to a life drawing class. I've only ever been to one before (at school) so I was pretty nervous but it was so much fun. Really looking forward to next week!

    So, in order: 10 minute warm-up, two sheets of 30-second gesture drawings, another 10 minutes (gesture drawing and a more detailed sketch) then the final was about 30-40 minutes, wish I'd stuck with charcoal for it.

    Trying to be more relaxed again - I always get too hung up on trying to get everything perfect and then I lose the enjoyment...

    beautiful fresh looking face on this one, you have caught her expression and gaze well, her hips look a bit chunky for me think her lower portion could be a bit sleeker, be good to see this one finished. Happy painting

    i can really see how you have developed and your shading and use of texture has gotten lots better from your early days

    how long did it take you to do the sketch of the man sitting down on this page?

    Really good job on post #93. Awesome colours and the addition of the mountains on the left really worked well. Your composition keeps getting better.

    More life drawing - can't believe it's been a week already. I need to draw much more! This week we did blind contour drawing. These poses were (in order) 10 minutes, 20 minutes and 40 minutes.

    Whoa! Epic improvement. Those life drawing are really looking cool. I really find it hard to crit when things I see are far beyond my skill at this moment. However, what your doing is working, so keep at it! Thanks for your comments and suggestions in my thread!

    All the best!

    Damien Levs: Thank you so much . I really don't think I'm at a higher skill level than you at all, but I'll take the compliment!

    Ninsei: Thank you! The improvement in your sketchbook inspires me to work harder too!!

    --

    Was ill today so at least got a chance to do some drawing at home. I think they're pretty terrible, but I'm posting them to at least show I'm not just being laazy!

    Some 2 minute gestures to try and warm up, then a long-ish study of a photo. Her legs and chest (and everything) are completely wrong but I tried . Then a quick-ish study of a landscape photo.

    All the best!

    Very strong pieces and fluid flow of knowledge. Your color comprehension has developed quite dramatically from the beginning to now. I know thoroughly what I should work on now from your comment on my pieces.

    Keep up the great work.

    Hush yo fatty bunz.

    Damien Levs: Thank you !!

    Tazuma: Thank you very much . Glad my comment helped!

    Mooore life drawing. Today's focus was on portraits but I mostly did the figures too as I feel like I need to study that more than portraits at this point.

    In order: 3 x 15 minutes then a longer one (about 30-40 minutes maybe).

    Apologies for the bad picture quality this time - I shouldn't have layered the first one on top of the second one!!

    Yet another WIP - I think this one has potential to keep going on it. I need to slim out her body though to suit the character. Trying to work hard on the costume - making her look evil hence the snakes (hopefully you can see they are snakes ).

    Progress on the WIP I posted last time, and a random sketchy thing that I don't think I'll continue with.

    More life drawing. Feel like I had a bad week this week . The emphasis was on perspective and foreshortening, though, so probably one of the more difficult topics. Last class for a couple of months too. Again sorry for bad photo quality.

    Page from my sketchbook - the girl on the right-hand side is an older sketch. Was tempted to crop out the rest of the right-hand page .

    I realy Like 95 and 114 they are great. I've been watching your sketch book, and thought I would tell you keep up the good work!

    Stryno: Thank you very much!! - it really means a lot to get any kind of feedback!

    --

    Some silhouettes to try and work on my design - using a friend's concept for a character, so she's supposed to be a girl who works in a circus but in a kind of fun style.

    More thumbnails for the circus character. Trying out different ways of doing thumbnails - I think I prefer the silhouettes still. Really trying to push myself to try out loads of different designs rather than settling on an early idea. Poses are all pretty static to focus on the design of the costume rather than the body language of the character.

    Lots of inspiration from the book 'The Skillful Huntsman' - would really reccomend it .

    Environment thumbnail - took way too long for a very simple looking thumbnail I did have to salvage it with print-screen when Painter crashed before I saved though!
