    Hey, Maximal91, soild start, keep drawing from direct observation and doing anatomical studies, Bridgeman and Loomis I find are the best sources- making mastercopies are good learning experiences too.

    One thing I would say is be careful drawing heads, some of the features in your studies are skewed, try to keep in mind where the vertical center line of the face is and that the eyes are in the center of face. The problem is we focus on the features too much therefore make the lower half of the face bigger than it is, which can really throw off a portrait, if that makes sense.

    at any rate, solid start, keep drawing and keep posting, all the best

    I haven't been able to post lately because of school. But things are finally slowing down. These two drawings were from pixelovely. 1st one is graphite and the 2nd charcoal.

    The first is taken from a model and then i just added my own idea to it. The third is my first figure in watercolor. Kind of messy but its a start. All three are from pixelovely.
