    Instead of doing a normal self portrait i decided to draw my individual features. This meant that i spent far more time on each feature making them a lot better rather than spending less time per feature when i was doing the whole face.
    Using a mirror is really useful

    Also a page of only imagination. Some of the drawings i was trying to apply what i had learnt from my self portraits and some i was just letting my mind wonder whilst trying to have some control so that it doesn't end up as just random squiggles on the page

    Crits and comments hugely appreciated! Thanks to looking

    hey there
    i see a lot of various things since the last time i took a look in here
    your rendering rocks as always (this one is amazing!)
    i also think that your proportions keep getting better (something i totally fail with )
    it's great to see you doing those landscape thumbs, too

    keep on rockin'

    cheers brain eater Its awesome that you're noticing things that I'm actively trying to improve, makes me feel like I'm getting somewhere

    Been so bad with posting here so this is quite a large sketchbook dump. Still not doing enough but the work ethic is slowly improving (i think)

    Oh, and I almost forgot, I've got a bunch of oil paint from school to use over the summer so will be experimenting with that as well

    Just experiments at the moment, getting used to it. Will probably produce some finished work with it at some point

    super quick studies from a book I've been reading called 'Paint the Sea in Oils Using Special Effects'

    Still life

    Study, will probably put some more work into it later - this was very rough and quick and experimental

    don't know why it came out rotated :/ sorry

    Wow, your improvement in this sketchbook is coming along in leaps! Dedication's really paying off I mean, in just one page, look at the incredible difference in the quality of your pencil work! Inspiring, man.
    It's great to see you paying so much attention to your drawing skills; working in pen too, that'll really help your line control and how you think about putting marks on the page. I know what you mean about working from imagination, it's difficult and frustrating and kinda scary in a way that studies aren't... It's something I struggle with too. But it's way more rewarding and satisfying, and in the end the studies are just the means to an end, it's the personal stuff that's the real important stuff. :')
    I'm seeing lots of portraits... they're real fun, but any chance we could see some full figures from you? Also, more stuff from life is good. Other than that, you're doing great, keep it going! Already looking forward to checking back to this sketchbook again soon

    Jessibelle - thanks so much for your lovely comment its good to see that you can tell why I'm doing what I'm doing, makes me think that I'm actually doing the right thing rather than just blagging it
    Good idea, i think I've been telling myself that i would start doing full figures for a while and i should really stop putting it off! Thank you so much, gives me another little burst of confidence

    On to the update:

    Stuff from imagination
    Dan's Sketchbook

    Portrait studies of famous people, again in an attempt to make my drawings looking like the actual person. 10 points if you can guess who any of them are

    Pretty damn good studies
    I can see that it's starting to translate into your more imaginative works, the knowledge is latent and present so long as you're willing to use it. Keep at it!
