    Enjoying the Process

    Hi,
    I decided to start a sketchbook to see if I can get some critiques. It is hard to improve when you have no one to tell you what is wrong. I will definitely try to take into consideration any critiques that you give me... hopefully it will show in this thread.

    Cheers!

    (BTW, any pointers on how to make the images not pixelated would be great... they look fine on my computer until they are uploaded to the interweb)

    Thanks for the encouragement guys!

    Anyone feel free to critique, I don't take offense what-so-ever.

    I just got a job so unfortunately I won't be able to draw a lot but I am going to squeeze it in whenever I can.

    Here is some more stuff. Some from photo ref, some observation. Most are Loomis heads studies... some just copying his drawings and some coming up with on my own. I notice that the heads in the first image are skewed, the face it straight on while the head is turned slightly....

    Your studies look amazing. But make sure you apply them and do them from memory after you had copy them. To see what you need to work on. Other than that your doing great. Do more from imagination.
    Checkout my sketchbook filled with awesomeness.

    Thank you Passhunate... that is really good advice. I have always had a hard time balancing imagination with observation... I think I may be on the opposite side of the spectrum where I do too much observation (when lots of people do far too much imagination without learning the basics).

    I will try and make sure I do at least a decent amount of imagination as well.

    Cheers!

    Bringing back my old thread and hoping to post at least one new image per day. I have been learning how to paint the last few months so thought I would post to try and get some feedback.

    Here is just a monochromatic under painting of a little still life I set up. Crits welcome.

    Here is another under painting of some boxes... I learned a lot about edges in this one. Fun stuff. Oh, btw, these are both done in oil.

    Critiques are always appreciated.

    Oil on board direct painting. A few things that I like about it but mostly just like that I can see I have a lot to improve on.

    Oil on canvas. Still a WIP. Any ideas about what direction I should take this in? Trying to focus on getting as much depth as possible.... I think I am going to punch the orange fabric up to a yellow to make it jump forward more.
