    First is a pose study, the rest are usual color/value studies.

    Interesting assortment so far, I really like the high opacity chalk pieces in post # 11.
    Looking forward to seeing where you'll go next
    Happy sketching

    @Rhubix thanks thanks. Will focus mainly on rendering and environments i guess.

    @TFsean What, now Im motivated!

    I procrastinate too much again. Still did a Bargue study. Tried using eraser to make hard edges. Didnt refine everything, cause Im tired and wanna go to bed now.

    So many different studies, that's great stuff.
    #12 Cough my eye, love that light on a cig.
    #20 Maybe apply some rough texture to really get the feel of the stone. Otherwise it's great. Keep em coming.

    Its great that youre applying the things you have learned from the studies (#23). Thats the right mindset.

    You better keep doing more of these, otherwise...

    @KiBa Yes sir!

    I better begin looking into skin texture and material behaviour, otherwise I will always get this artificial look. Going to paint details of the face separately from now on, in case of render practices.

    Looks great so far!

    Maybe you need to spend more time on one of your studies, just every now and then.

    Watch out for the dark values in the forest study (2). The background is too dark.

    Hay, thanks dude. I already spent a loooot of time on the clouds, haha. Im way too slow. And you are totally right with the forest. Actually I wanted the background to be more crowded with trees, but I totally messed up.

    Again landscapes. Have problems imagining them(elements and composition), so gotta keep doing studies to get a visual library. Only looking at images of landscapes wont do anything, in my opinion.
