    Some color studies. the last two are with brushes with full opacity to try to place more confident strokes rather than going over the same area 20 times

    Bird studies. Really fun specially the quick thumbs to get their different poses during flight right.

    That submarine painting last page was really cool! And a slight crit for you on your portraits and characters - specifically the females. Try not to render every single strand of hair so much. View them as chunks, groups and closters - like rope or something and then add the detail on top of that. Look for the forms of the individual groups or chunks and how they flow and interact.

    Keep it up!

    Crazy PillsThanks, and thank you for the advice I'll keep it in mind.

    alizakThanks. It's alot of fun.

    Studies, the nose scan is terrible, the lines were to light, so hardly showed up and I had to bumb the levels alot to make it visible.

    Another study before going to bed, spend abit more time than average on this one (45 min). For some reason a wolf is rather hard to get his head right.

    For some reason it doesn't look like the wolves eyes are attached to its nose/mouth - like the top half of his head is straight on and the bottom half is on an angle.

    Here is the ref I used with the study. Not sure if I understand you completely. But afaik the face of a wolf is not flat, but the nose and mouth stick out. In the picture he opens his mouth so his nose is lifted even more creating sort of an angle.
    In case you mean something else let me know? Maybe I just see it wrong on the picture as well and it's actually incorrect what I painted, idk

    EDIT: putting them next to eachother I now realise what you mean. And you are right the left eye (his right) should be down abit more.

    I love your sketches. One thing I can suggest for your sketches is to maybe sketch them out a little darker before you scan them. Some of the eye ones were a little hard to see. Other than that, your art work is coming along really well .

    Peipei Thanks. And I should indeed do that. It's just now that I'm finely getting out of the habit of drawing way to dark I want to avoid going too dark again. I'm considering just taking pictures of my sketches instead, they should read better then than with my scanner.

    Queen Thanks.

    1h30 speed painting.

    Keep going! Great works so far. I think you could try to focus a little more on value/form over color, perhaps try to do some B/W studies too.

    Hey, been a while since I've been here, you have improved immensely.
    Imo the reason the wolf doesnt look right is values, use a brighter white like the picture has, to push the form of the wolves skull and muzzle, when using a reference try and copy it as exactly as possible (without using the colour picker )

    All in all, seeing alot of improvement here!

    Hey man, good progression and lots of new work!
    Do some more of those material sphere studies, they look really nice! I think you can get even more detail into them aswell!

    Urötskidoji Thanks. Yup I'll do more of those, and I'll try to get more detail in. I'll probably use them as a way to test out painting without linking the opacity to pen pressure, because I feel like everything ends up a bit muddy if i do this.

    Some hands and my copy of loomis arrived so going to start with that aswell now. so much to do, so much to learn, so little time. (Images are a tiny bit blurry, I took photographes of them now rather than scanning them, I think they read better, but I'll take the pictures in a better lit room next time)

    nice figure studies, i guess its from the book anatomy lessons from the great masters; i copied the same image of the guy raising his arms like 20 times (the Michelangelo sketch), that sketch alone is probably the most challaging thing to copy in that book.
    seems like your studying quite hard, i recommend reading Drawing from the right side of the brain by Betty Edwards, there are some fundamental ideas in there can be applied to everything you do, keep going at it and I'm sure you'll make huge progress in little time .

    "Figure drawing for all its worth." I think there are links to it in the tutorial section. I bought myself a copy because unlike alot of people nowadays, I still like actual books. The other anatomy sketches after old masters in the beginning off the sketchbook is from a dutch book, so probably not much use to you.

    Maxcid Thanks. If I ever find the time I'll have a look at that book, starting to get more and more assigments again so less time to draw atm :s.

    Ah thanks for that - I think I am going to look at that one, and Successful Drawing so that I can also study up on perspective.
