    Last year I found digital painting on internet and I started to be interested in it I bought tablet, started trying, but it is useless without knowing basics.
    I will be thankfull for every advice and critique. I will update every week. (I hope) So let's start! You can see my the latest work in second post.

    I started with 61 poses from posemaniacs, 60 second each. I found it difficult, so I have to practice it more. The second thing is some Bammes studies and the last thing is study from life.
    I wanted to scan it, but it wasn't look very good, so I took some photos.

    Welcome to CA Blu01!
    You should try different methods of your pose drawings, you're mostly outlining parts of the body and focusing on contours, you should be trying to draw the pose itself and the motion in the body. Here's a ton of links to help you out, also check out the sites in my signature as alternatives to posemaniacs.
    Also since you're doing so many gestures, why not join the Spartan Camp when #201 is put up?
    Now in regards to the Bammes studies, they look accurate enough to me, but are you really grasping and analyzing what he's saying? Can you draw the bones of the arm from imagination now? Or are you just copying down his lines and hoping to absorb knowledge? I advise you to make your own studies from life, photos, and imagination in addition to your studies out of the book, you'll get so much more out of your studies that way.

    Vertical , you are right, I planned to draw from my memory, and about Spartan Camp, I didn't know about it, I will certainly participate in it. Thank you for your comment.

    Some poses, I focused on movement of body, used Loomis's basic figure.

    Gpozzo, thanks man, I promise that the next digi update will be better.

    Finally I tried some faces and heads. Some are after loomis, some are from mind, and some after ref. I have to practice it more. Need some holidays or free time, the school is killing me

    tronrobot: Thank you very much, mate.

    I add some very bad digis, have to work more with colours, then perspective studies where I have a few wrong angles, some of them are under 90 degrees. My main goal is to draw from mind, so I tried some heads from mind. It will be better with practice.

    Hello my friend.
    What's up?
    I hope that you are in good health.
    You are a real hard worker and your dedication is outstanding.
    I went through your sketches and studies and I am
    satisfied how you are progressing.
    You just remember that you should never give
    up and you will be a master one day.
    You are only 18 and a lot of
    opportunities are in front of you.
    You just use them wisely.

    LtPlissken: Glad to see you in my SB. I am fine, hope you too. I am not hardworker, I draw when I have some free time , it is better than boredom. One day, maybe I will be master , but it's sooo far away. I can't give up! Thanks for your kind comment.

    kimozabbi: My digis are bad, I don't have sense for colours, but I will practice it. Don't worry, I am worse than you (really, I was in your SB). Remember practice is everything. Thanks for your visit

    I still practice poses, 50 poses from mind for Spartan Camp.

    Poses with referneces (for spartan camp) 26-34 it's small experiment where I added meat blocks then, selfportrait which is better, but something is missing (agh the lips are killing me) then heads from mind, and the big ones are with ref. I should spend more time on studying skull and features of face if I want to master it.

    You're digital work is really good, quite a contrast with the pencil stuff. You could put more shadows on your pencil faces, like you did with the bone study, because those look much better.

    Compliments on your motivation/dedication. Way to go !

    Look, I updated my signature!

    eclip-se: Glad to hear this. I prefer speaking in English to improve it too. Sometimes when people are talking in foreign langueage which I don't speak I feel left out. On the other side I didn't know that you are from Slovakia too until you wrote this . Thanks for encouragement.

    Poses for camp, one digi and some exercises I found in Yoitisi Island and which I am doing every day. (This were my first pages) I have to synchronize my eye with my hand. And for poses maybe I should combine Loomis with dynamic lines.

    Nice studying! I wouldn't say that digital piece on your second to last post was unsuccesfull, the only thing that seems wrong there is her jaw, and her face could use more depth and definition. On the plus side, you have a clear source of light, good contrast and at least to my eye her proportions are somewhat okay.
    First drawing of that same post caught my eye, you've done good job getting the lines on their places but it seems like you just gave up on his head. There's really interesting perspective going on as the facial features cover only about 1/8th of head, and it could be nice learning experience if you took the challenge. Try to look for negative spaces (the shapes of white background), I find that very helpful when drawing complicated poses.
    Aaaaand I liked your digital eye studies on page 2, maybe try using brown for eyelashes, *I* think it makes them look more natural.
    Sorry if this sounds like a rant, I mean no harm!

    Noora: You are right, I should have spent more time on her face, but I focused more on pose. I used small resolution which wasn't very happy solution, because I don't have hardware which can supply high resolution, so I am exploring what can I get from it and what not.
    I have to pay attention to proportions, and as you said the head could have been better.
    I am glad that you like my digital eye studies because I thought that they are totally awful
    Thanks for you crit and of course it doesn't sound like a rant, I am thankful when people tell me what is bad and what could be better. I want to be better!

    Today some studies of body after Hampton, Bridgman and Loomis
