    -all around anatomy is off
    -proportions are off
    -you are jumping in to detail way to fast, you should be making sure form and values are right.
    -sarcasm doesn't translate over the internet very well

    Did you even look at the beautiful reference pic that I gave everyone to check out first?
    I jumped to details becuase I didnt want to spend eterety in just the values, I ACTUALLY HAND PICKED THEM instead of just copying from the pic WHICH MANY TIMES IN LIFE YOU CANT DO. I can agree that maybe I should have worked harder but I DISAGREE that the all around anatomy is off.
    There are two hands, good sir, one is in the forefront and the other is closer to the background mostly hidden by the first hand. This is becuase they are engaged in an act called "hand shaking". If you conceived that this whole picture was one hand, then you need to get your eyes checked. ALSO, If your going to state your argument that many people can get the picture spot on without coloring over the reference picture or taking the tones directly from the picture I beg sir please send me a link and ill gladly take note of it for future arguments. Otherwise, even on concept art I have yet to see a picture like that.
    Not to rattle on, but this exercise was to test my eyes on the accuracy it portrays to my digital canvas.
    I wasn't going to sell it and make it picture perfect. Matter of fact, if my hands are off I would like to see a sketch where you can do it better you troll..


    Oh and take note of above reply

    Thank you @glotzan

    -You're being a dick
    -You're being ignorant
    -STOP BEING A DICK
    -STOP BEING IGNORANT
    -is it your time of the month or something?
    -Not sure what "but there is two hands not one" has anything to do about anything

    -"many people can get the picture spot on without coloring over the reference picture or taking the tones directly from the picture" MOST PEOPLE DO. idk wtf you are looking at that would make you think otherwise. But most people eye ball colors and value, that is how you LEARN.

    -"to test my eyes on the accuracy it portrays to my digital canvas" I am pretty sure it's call LEARNING VALUE, whether or not through pencil or anything else. Not sure what your point is, everyone has to do this, so try again, better excuses plox.

    -"if my hands are off I would like to see a sketch where you can do it better you troll.." Why would you need to see someone else do it?? IT'S RIGHT THERE ON THE PICTURE, ALL OF THE INFORMATION IS RIGHT THERE. Having someone else do a sketch does NOTHING, proves nothing, and has NOTHING to do with you learning or taking a crit, that you can't seem to handle.


    Whether or not you think you are right, you aren't. There is a reason you want other peoples help, did you not post here hoping for help? Of course you did, or else there would be no point, you aren't good there for can't show off anything. I think the truth of the matter is that you can't take the truth. All you are doing is making excuses for yourself, just own up to the fact your are wrong, that is fine. Everyone is wrong at some point. I only want to help YOU. I have no reason to tell you lies. Yet you act like I told you something unbelievable and that I must be wrong. Well fact is I'm not wrong, everything I said is true, whether you like it or not, it is. Now either you face the fact that you did do it wrong and what I pointed out to you was in fact wrong, then you can move on and progress. Or you can say i'm wrong and not accept what I said, and NOT PROGRESS. And ignore everyone ones advice because you think everyone but you is wrong.

    There are thousands of people who will stroke you but not many who will give actual crits, they are few and far between, so don't burn most of them off, or no one is going to help you.

    I'm going to agree with Diarum. The hands are off. The knuckles don't read as in the right places. Colour picking the values is useless to get values right - the little finger should be a silhouette along with most of the ring finger. Your still life of a glass is sloppy - no point in doing any exercises if that's that's the approach. If you're going to improve you're going have to learn to take criticism. There will be good and bad - learning to sort them out is a step in the right direction. One way is to go to the WIP/Critique section and see if you can give a constructive critique there - it's harder than you think, but you learn a lot about your own work at the same time.

    Mentors are hard to come by, but I'll nag and expect you to do the same. SBs sort of work that way round here. You say people don't stay still - look in the mirror - there's a perfect person to practice on who won't get offended if you yell at them to stay put. Next, do still lives. Lots of them. It teaches you form and value that you can apply elsewhere.

    When you say ive got a 100 problems and don't list them right away I feel like your being a jerk.

    Thank you for the advice, I can take criticism, but Black Spot actually gave me immediate feedback instead of listing problems with no basis.
    @Black Spot
    Will definitely work on that, hell, I can see my face and hands everyday
    I found a few websites that have free nudes and started to do at least 9 5min sketches of them. I think im still shakey on grey scale but I guess I have to work even harder on my values
    @Diarum
    There seemed to be some sort of misunderstanding... I get stroked all the time, kind of annoying...
    sorry for the initial attack, but when someone upsets you in something your serious about it hurts...
    Not to dramatize but thank you...
    Its up to me and you to put this behind, ill get a tougher hide this time around.

    Sup, thanks for the comment! The original pokemon were great!

    Are you planing on doing five minute value studies? 5 minutes is enough to get down some nice lines and basic form, but I think that would be too fast to make an accurate value study. Make sure you work on longer stuff too, like 1-2 hours. And don't forget to apply your studies and work from imagination neither!

    Now draw some stuff :/

    good going! I think spending a little more time on some of your drawings would be fun to you I only did 5 or 10 min sketches for months and I just recently found that spending 30-60 mins or sometimes more on a picture can be quite enjoyable too. PLUS: youll learn a ton!
    For example, that nude girl (#42, right one) isnt very refined. Maybe try and go back to that initial reference u used (i understood that there is ref for this one?^^) and first go over the biggest shapes (simplified torso and pelvis, looking for important points of the skeleton where big muscles connect to, like those sharp points on the front part of the pelvis!) and then spend time on the form (described by how the form shadows fall).
    1 big shapes
    2 important skeletal points
    3 form

    It looks to me that you actually started with big shapes and relationships (i think i see some construction lines?). They look a little rushed tho, so give them some love

    I agree with KingElvis
    Also remember that you can do studies that are in correlation with your painting like anatomy, the pose(s), clothing, and other stuff. The anatomy of the pirate/zombie is off, the body is squished, and the head is deformed. And don't give me that BS that "this is my style" because if you believe that you are lying to yourself. I Zombie survivor I can kinda see, but the Space pirate doesn't read as such, looks like a shit fantasy warrior with a life jacket on. Just think before you actually put the piece together, that way it won't take as much time, and you learn a whole lot more.

    Laziness is a state of mind, trust me I know because I still battle with it ALL THE TIME. Might not be the same for you but if I just start drawing it normally leads to being less lazy. You might be different though so idk...lol.
    Who needs friends when you have an enemy like me

    I hate that shit where people say "its my style";so no, its not my style.

    I knew the head was off, I was going for a simpler way to paint, so that lamely excuses the proportion issues. The shirt is off his shoulder and THE SPACE LIFE JACKET IS COOL, THIS IS WHATS GOING TO SEND ME TO THE COOL KIDS TABLE!!!

    Painting apples, its not finished, ima do an orange later today.
    Those bodys are what I do in my spare time.. they are cool as well.
    O and I did this guy, I guess i forgot to post him before
