    A face, not very good, but It's my first attempt at sort of realism

    SKETCH DUMPPP!!!!!!!
    Just some things I've drew over the weekend after studying Loomis's books.
    The girl is my little sister, and she was surprisingly still for the time it took for me to draw this!

    any feedback is welcome!

    Keep doing lots of faces, especially from life. Do you have friends or family members who would sit for you? Excellent improvement in such a short amount of time!

    Man, how has no one linked you this yet? Usually the forumgoers here almost spam Loomis' books..
    As they should. read this guy's "Drawing the Head and Hands" and apply the lessons, it'll teach you a ton about construction and all that. other than that you're on the right track, good balance of imagination and observation and you're learning the fundamentals.

    Don't stop! Draw more! You'll get better in no time if you work hard at it and thanks for the comment dude.

    The key to getting better at anything is to do it a lot.

    yeah, I've already got loomis' books, but I've gotta read them properly instead of just quickly scanning them!

    Yep, just gotta keep drawing more! And no problem!

    Good to see you're practicing perspective as well as portraits. I've kind of been avoiding doing some perspective studies myself >.> I would suggest though to try to work from life as often as possible. If no one can pose for you, do some self-portraits. Go to a coffee shop or the mall where there are tons of people you could sketch. Even if it's just quick gestures, you will still benefit a lot from them. Doing still-lifes are a great way to practice perspective, value, line quality, composition, etc. Good luck and keep drawing =]

    Thanks for dropping by the ol' sketchbook, dude. Lookin' good so far, don't ever give up if you want it, take it. Perspective stuff looks real real good and clean, better than what I can do with buildings and such, I've never really tried it out that much. Work on construction, and form, do some studies of the human skull, that will help out a LOT with the foundation of your heads. Just really try to get into the learning zone, and keep drawing, you learn every time you do it. If you ever reach a point where it just seems pointless, as I do, just tough it out, you progress, always and stick with it. Also, try doing some still life work, it's boring sometimes but you find that you really learn a lot while working on them, and then you'll start liking and appreciating what they have to offer you. Again, keep going!
