    today I´ve done some digital studies. so useful! I´m pretty happy with the third one, cause I´m a disaster at painting hair.

    some studies from today. Still not very good at picking colors, so I cheated a bit and used the eyedropper tool.

    In your paintings noses look somewhat weird. Apart from the fact they all look quite similar, I think you should pay attention to concavity at the top of the nose bridge, between eyebrows - it should be more obvious. Look at some pictures and see how light and shadow work in that area, and how nose bridge is (usually, and it's more evident in women I suppose) getting narrower going from the top to the bottom.
    I hope it clear enough to understand.

    Ninsei you are right, they all end up looking weird when I´m not using reference. I´ll do some studies to try to fix that.


    small update today, cause I can´t use my scaner. I have lots of sketches to scan

    some more work on the elf girl portrait, a little study of a puma, and a drawing from imagination I do like a bit.

    You're steadily getting a good grasp of colour!!

    Pretty stuff, but - try to understand the structure of eyesockets better. I see this in many of your faces, an eye sliding off the side and not really being inserted in the head.

    I try to explain it here; the eye is a ball and there's a ring of bone around it, the eyelid must also be sort of ball shaped overlaying the sphere of the eye. Otherwise you get these strange distorted heads where the face is too large, and their hairline is too high, and the eyes are falling out of the skull. So try to always be conscious of the larger scale geometry, even if you love rendering details. For this reason I recommend using some flat tones while sketching too.

    So I guess, look up Loomis for facial planes, but also look at some skulls and how the brow bone and cheekbone are structured (and how the nose comes out of that). You don't have to make a big anatomy study of it, but identify the bones under the skin to get some solid structure.

    krisCrash thank you so much for taking the time to help me with the eyeballs issue. what you said is going to be helpful for sure. thanks again!

    so as KrisCrash said, I need to work more on understanding the structure. I realize that when I´m doing a study from a photo, I´m not trying to understand it but to copy it and make it pretty, and that´s not the point in studies, I think. So I´ll try to change that. I´ll only try to make it beautiful if the structure it´s alright. So I did some heads focusing on structure.

    after that, some neck studies, noses and some snowy mountains. I´m terrible at backgrounds...

    two studies and two digital craps from imagination.

    I´m trying to put more thinking in my studies, I hope it helps me get better results soon.

    It's nice to see you study so hard, and I can see improvement!
    I really like the faces you draw, you have a beautiful way to draw the facial features...
    be careful not to place the eyes too close together though, or make the heads too big
    (especially visible in post #47).

    It's very good that you try to keep thinking while practicing - something I always struggle with,
    it's so easy to lose focus and just paint or draw mindless,
    especially when using reference...

    Keep up the studies!

    Lyraina thank you so much! you are right, I´m always doing the head too big. must work more on proportions.


    some poses (finally some full-body sketches!), and some crappy studies. also, two heads from imagination: a random girl and Ygritte from asoiaf. I dropped some colors on her, maybe i´ll try to paint it.

    as Ninsei said in post #43, the noses in my paintings look weird. I tried to fix the redhead girl´s nose, I think it looks better now.

    also, two studies.
