    Awesome stuff but I think I found out what you could work on, I noticed that most of your female faces are very similar and also have very similar facial expressions, you could focus on these things next time you draw a female face, I think it'd look better, even though your works already look good!

    A lot of your heads are out of proportion, but it seems like you're resolving that pretty well right now so keep killing it, your stuff is awesome.

    I dig the progress going on here and the dedication. You should try working on face diversity. Most of your faces you do look the same . Trying studying the quirks of the face and not only the anatomy. What makes a person different than the other, shape of the eyes and stuff like that. Do some loose portraits , not overly detailed and technical.

    If you force yourself to detail pictures you will loose sight of the whole of it. I wish you the best and keep on it!

    Please visit , comment , critique and have a chat with me

    Dude, your life studies are amazing... and your rendering has improved tremendously since the last page, you seem much more polished with your values and your figures from imagination seem very well constructed... I really need to practice more...

    Wow, Thanks guys for the nice comments. =D

    TY Rostas and ANtY93 for the critique. I definatly have to study the skull a lot more in order to get accurate proportions. As for expressions and face diversity, I feel I need to draw a halfway decent head before attempting that stuff.

    WOW! This is mega inspirational. Your understanding of anatomy, structure and perspective are blowing my mind. That is a big weak point of mine, so it is so nice to see all of your examples of awesome knowledge. Rendering gets better and better too! You are awesome. Keep it up!!

    I really love the drapery studies on page 2, and thank you for mentioning the construction vs. realism thread, interesting stuff!

    My one critique would be that sometimes I feel that you draw the head too large, or too long. And sometimes the torso too long/thin... I have seen that a bit while scrolling through. For example, in the first rendered figures in your post right before mine. The first one is okay but the others seem to have awkwardly proportioned head/neck sizes. I'm not sure if you want this, but it is a mistake I used to make and still make so I figured I'd mention it in case it might help

    Hey muddy, Thanks very much for the Critique. Your absolutely right. I have a huge problem with face proportions. Im always trying to fix my tendency to draw lopsided. Often times huge proportion errors become invisible to me. Thanks for input. Uber appreciated.

    Some imagination characters. Trying to get the hang of rendering Metal.

    Your linework is impeccable, jeeeeeze. And those clothing fold studies are so beautiful. Do you flip the canvas horizontally when you draw? It helps see proportion and other errors. Keep trying to get the heads right. They're still massive xD You're giving these fragile girls the thickest necks too haha. It'll normalize as you go, I'm sure. Also the eyes are too big or placed weirdly on the head sometimes... think about the skull structure more when you place them... do a lot of head/face studies, pay as much attention to it as you do all these other things you work hard on improving -Well, actually I know that you are doing a lot of work on it. I just feel that your perception of the volumes of it and how things look is still lacking that final jump of understanding.
    And the metal rendering can be achieved much better after doing metal studies... You really have to be daring with the strokes. Your lines for it are great though!

    I'm extremely impressed with the how you construct the figure. Most all of them look solid (when you take the time to construct them)... especially some of the earliest drawings in your thread. Also was impressed by the Preston Blair exercise you did in post #1.

    Has someone told you not to do constructional figures? Or are you just trying out different methods? My belief is that that is the correct way to think about the figure at all times... but you can also augment the constructed figure with gesture--kind of putting the best of both worlds together. I'm under the impression, though, that someone has told you to stop doing constructed figures because they're afraid the figures are too stiff. (They're not, IMO). If the figures are too stiff, don't abandon your wonderful eye for volume and construction... integrate the gesture and constructed figures.

    As mentioned by others... the eyes on some of your figures are too large and kind of slide all over the face... which doesn't happen when you do your constructed heads. (Some of the figures are cartoons, and it's fine to have the heads larger on those).

    Overall... very impressed and will subscribe and rate 5 stars.
