You are doing very well! Great Sketchbook, I suggest that first you concentrate on the skull construction.
Never ever forget the proportions ! ^^
Go ahead, you're doing well

yes... perspective!! If you want to be able to represent 3D form you must understand perspective rather well. Check out Scott robertson's basic perspective drawing DVD: http://www.thegnomonworkshop.com/store/product/323/ and practice that stuff like hell, but don't ignore all that other great non perspective stuff! wire frames I found helped me quite a bit.
oh ya.. after you go through that DVD, check out his rendering ones!

Here is some practice with values, I never really understood how they worked but starting to understand the logic behind them there all a little off but ill study them more

Sucking at rotating boxes in space Does everyone use this construction with boxes to draw? is it bad to not use it. I kind of feel more comfortable with gesture and drawing from that. Here are some more things i have been doing over the last few days

I think what's most important is that you work out the general structure of the form before becoming preoccupied with details. You seem to be skipping ahead and ending up with disproportionate and asymmetryical figures.
Also, you might want to do some extra studies for the three-quarter view of the head as you seem to be having trouble getting the placement of the far eye right, often placing it a little too high.

Today i did some gesture drawings, and i got fed up with being confused about form, so i decided im going to draw it from every angle untill it begs for mercy ! Then just did a manikin from loomis and one from real life. Need to learn to see value. Dumb dumb eyes not being true to me </3. tomorrow ill keep drawing form from angles, and then continue on learning the figure once i am a little better at basic forms !

Woke up and did some more gesture drawings, i think im going to get in the habit of doing them every day ! they are nice to warm up my brain in the morning but also there fun !
today i spent a long time just drawing basic shapes, Trying to learn what things look like as they rotate, change angle, come closer and go further away. Like legs arms or fingers, wansnt worried about anatomy or proportions. Just trying to understand how the shapes look so i can begin to build my figures ! I also did a quick painting study, about 3 hours to try and learn about values. Unfortuantley the eyeball looks a bit boogley but i still learn a ton about value range !
Thanks for looking in

Here is some stuff from today, I know its not very interesting yet but give me time guys and ill do some cool stuff !
Things learnt today
- Introduction to female and male Proportions
-Painting from abstract. Just messed up the canvas with a brush then made something from the changes in value and sculpted the forms
