    Some of those hands are really good. Good proportions and gesture, nothing beats good drawings of hands!

    Your doing a lot of stuff so you cant really go wrong. Just keep working hard and doing whatever you find hardest and youll improve!
    Keep it up! Good start too.

    @ PHATandy, thank you so much!

    You're right, tho sometimes I feel like I'm all over the place jumping from one thing to another.





    Some more stuff, 40 min speedpaint based on the fear of falling....or something. I wanted to play with some textured brushes.

    1 hour speedpaint inspired by Assassin's Creed (I'm addicted to that franchise)

    Hey e-nat thanks for stopping by my sketchbook. I think you are on the right track here. The figure sketch of the woman in the dress is my favorite of yours so far. Keep working on gesture drawings, value, color studies daily. When doing thumbnails try to think of them in shape and value instead of line. You have some good compositions but at its base composition is a pattern of light and dark shapes, so its good to get in that mind set from the start. Doing a bunch of little comp studies from life just blocking in value can help you progress quickly. Keep on posting and I'll check back in

    @ Ninjac, you're definitely right. Thinking in terms of form/value instead of line is my greatest weakness. I should do more value and color studies! Thanks for the suggestion and the comment, I hope I'm doing this right







    Value studies from photos. Done this evening, 5 mins each. Theme = Island/sea. I struggled with bounce light on the water, will have to research it more.

    1 hours speedpaint

    1 hour. I copied the colors from the source photo, so this study might not count completely Next time I'll try to select the colors by judgment.

    50 minute sketch. A bit generic, I wasn't sure what I wanted at the beginning so I lost a bit of time.

    You're killing it on the thumbnails... those are great (I can't do them so well... they end up being a mess).

    This life drawing is quite good, too.

    Nice start.
    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    Nice! Really nice sketches! Keep pushing with grayscale value, trying to get some great light. And after them u can add some color. But without correct value color is nothing) Keep it up!
