    Cool beans man, I've been learning from loomis too, his perspective lessons are dense but helpful none the less haha.
    Good job on your paintings, if I could say one thing is that you seem to go a bit saturated on your color pallet (in my opinion)
    I would advice you to go grayer, everything I learned from painting I also learned from loomis on his book "Creative Illustration" Most of it is pretty focused on illustration but there is a section devoted to color theory and it has helped me a ton. You should check it out since the books are found free on the internet

    Hello! With the heads, I think you're going a bit too fast there, buddy. You don't seem to quite understand the form of the head, so I'd suggest taking a look at Loomis. Keep the stuff coming.

    I like the color scheme of the background of your latest drawing! You had such nice structural lines going on in the drawing though, it was a shame to see the shapes got lost in the shading process.

    +1 to Kevin. Just keep at it with the studying proportions and whatnot. You're also lacking in construction in most of your drawings, so some perspective study will help you as well. Keep at it!

    cool updates man. I dig the Hogarth stuff. I had a couple of his books back in secondary school. Scarred me for life. I thought I“d never amount to anything as i could not do what he did, not by longshot. But in later years I managed to learn from him against all odds. Keep it up

    great to see you keeping up your studies. There“s some great work and they will pay off. Be assured of that. I feel your pain of the lost picture. It happens but it wont happen often after the first time. In terms of your anatomy studies, have you come across a site called posemaniacs? Really useful, helped me tons in my work. cheerio

    The scull on this guy doesn't look quite right. You might want to pop another layer over it and try drawing a scull over the original faces, and see where things line up, and if you have things in the right place.

    I'm new here and could always use some advice / criticism. Feel free to take a peak at my sketchbook if you have the time.

    No worries mate you are doing great!!! Keep up understanding values and learn to draw and understand things as 3d and you will do fine. Dont worry about colors that much, so focus on values for now. This last one looks very promising , however while you did a nice simplification on the breasts [you know the form there] in the face there is confusion. Try watching that planes head, i think there are lots of images in google [search it like that "planes head"]
    Its already simplified so it will help you already. The face will come toghether without you knowing if you simply put down its major planes.

    The mecha is a really important excersize in basic forms, very good doing that.
    Also 191# really cool, lovely forms. And your sketches up there really important

    So you are on the right track, now keep sharing !!!
