    @ Sasha Devina - thanks a lot
    Yeah, I got some pretty "out there" topics to work with. I'm almost worried my own ideas are going to look too subdued compared to those.

    If you mean the one on the 8th post, that's from a painting by Jules Lefebvre (that's not a typo). I think I found it on artrenewal.org.
    If you meant the ones on post 6, those are from posemaniacs. Fantastic resource if you hadn't heard of it before.

    Some more stuff:
    The sundae used references for some parts and imagination for others. The head studies are from Kevin Chen's old demos somewhere on these forums.

    Hey, thanks for commenting on my sketchbook.

    I really like the clothing studies and people studies, maybe try to study tone first before leaping into colour, there is no real structure in the stuff from imagination.

    At any rate, by the way you've drawn people I can see a lot of potential, I hope you keep studying from life and books.

    Thank you for stopping by and commenting in my sketchbook. I tried out your advice and did a photo study with negative space at the beginning. I see how it can be of help.

    I see how you enjoy digital painting. Maybe you could also try to paint traditionally. Just for fun and try out different things. While working traditionally you will also learn basic things, which can be used in the digital media and you may get different ideas of what working techniques could be possible. Experimenting is the keyword here!

    Your studies are very nice and the topics recommended by your friends are really nice. So you will go outside of your comfort zone more than one time. This is good.

    In your traditinal studies you could be more brave with the shading. It appears pretty light, but I don't know if it just look like that, because of the scan (or photo) you've taken.

    Keep up your stuff! I see you improving fast.

    Thanks for commenting everyone.

    @ Hunin - you're right, I have a bad habit of going with the first image I get in my head and give up too soon on finding usable reference, so most of the structure in those pieces ends up being faked. I'm trying to work in black and white right now so let's see how that goes.

    @ Narrenzauber - I pretty much live outside my comfort zone
    That's the price I pay for wanting to practice all things at once.
    I could never get into traditional painting, largely because I don't like the hassle of all that physical preparation that isn't part of painting directly. I like the tablet because I can instantly start painting the second I'm in a good artsy mood, and stop the moment I'm tired. Plus, my apartment is tiny and if I start painting traditionally at my skill level, I'm worried about accumulating dozens of shoddy paintings I wouldn't know what to do with.

    The pencil studies are about a year old, and I did get a bit bolder with shading since then. At the time, I was more timid with it because I tended to use shading as a crutch to avoid putting accurate lines down. I'm more confident about my lines now, so I'm also more confident about shading (though probably not enough).

    I'm working on more studies as we speak, so stay tuned

    It's not a problem that you're using a tablet, but your painting technique needs more finetuning to get the best out of digital practice, and it appears like it's getting in the way a bit. You seem to make small strokes and not much wide bold ones, and there is not enough contrast in most of your paintings so the end result looks very bland.

    Keep it digital if you wish, but at least keep it down to grayscale studies for a while, listen to this to see why: http://www.ctrlpaint.com/home/2011/7...grayscale.html

    @ nelchee Ah! lol thanks for actually answering the question. I was beginning to think it was just some unwritten rule on these forums.
    Yes, I am working in grayscale now.
    I do realize those first paintings I posted were very low quality, but I figured that's the best place to start a sketchbook to get a sense of progression. In retrospect that was a mistake, cause now I'm stuck with my absolute worst piece as a thumbnail

    Thank you for the critiques as well; those were very useful.

    Didn't have much time for drawing, but I got up to this point so far:

    The eyes are still way off, but I redrew them so many times I just can't be bothered anymore.
    Thoughts? Crits?

    @ Cider thank you very much

    A couple more attempts at greyscale. Tried to start with a more neutral background this time. The first took a few hours, and the second was technically a quickie at around 40 minutes. I'm way too slow with these.

    Great studies! The greyscale studies are really the best so far! Keep it up!

    post 22 is excellent, you really get a sense of form with this portrait. Keep working with gray scale, but don't stop with line drawings either, it's helpful to experiment with both
