cool start, looking forward to more. also I can sympathize with your struggle to stay away from the internet... its not easy! good luck
I really like the way you drew the eyes in those two drawings. And I quite enjoy your pencil style in the second. I certainly hope to see more. Maybe full body characters?
WRAppiii - I know right? I go on the net looking for inspiration or some instruction materials and end up looking at puppies chasing a laser beam on youtube ! good luck to you too with your work ! keep at it ! don`t give up !
[Rh˙nn] - hahahaha you got me there ! bodies are my achilles heel ;P !!!
seriously need to get me to a live class and buy some good anatomy books
thanks for posting ! looking forward to hearing from you again !
Friday sketch dump !
not much, need to find time to do more !
Tuesday's sketch ... an idea for a painting
Oh how I love the hard/black vs thin/weak pencil lines! You draw gorgeous eyes, they're so deep and lifelike.
wow thanks JaneMag ! your sketchbook is awesome btw !
need to step out of my comfort zone and do more full body stuff
reading the biography of Catherine The Great at the moment...I guess you can sort of tell...
I like the sketches of the bearded guys and the eyes study. Keep it up.
thanks ! I appreciate it !
you too ! keep up the good work
Your pencil work is quite nice and I think you're on your way. That said, one thing I'm noticing is that your faces all seem to be very similar. Maybe it's just the way you draw eyes, but it'd be good to include some variety too. Try drawing people of different ages and different backgrounds. For a fun resource, check out this site:
Other than that, studying facial structure (like skulls, facial proportions, planes, etc) would be helpful.
Keep up the good work!
Here's another few sites to check out:

http://eyedrawthings.com/?page_id=3 (lots of good facial expressions)

Obviously drawing from life is best whenever possible. But seeing as how we don't always have an army of models waiting to be drawn, photographs can be helpful.
two new drawings
Love your pencil work . It'd be nice to see some more colour though . Nice sketchbook!

thanks so much
haha will try to do some more work with colour, promise
weird, coz I'm not that much into sci-fi really...been watching too much Big Bang Theory I guess (and American Horror Story The new season is soooo scary !!!)
Turned on the lights
Thanks so much ChisLu
I've checked out your sketchbook, you have some really cool stuff there
The best advice I could give you, especially about faces, is to think more in terms of shadows and tones rather than lines. Try to "colour in" shadows with the pencil first rather than drawing lines, leave that till last...I'm no expert mind you, but I find thinking more in those terms makes the drawings look less flat
keep drawing !
aaaahhh the smell of turpentine
Is this Sparta?
