    I'll come back to this picture at some point I guess , I kinda like the composition but I really don't know how to detail this picture right at this moment.

    Have you looked up Loomis and Bridgmann yet? I'd recommend it. I think it would help to do some facial anatomy studies in particular. It looks like you're using reference, but not truly looking at the subject. You're using symbols -- eyes as a symbol look much different to how they actually are. Also have a look at facial structure to help you get everything proportioned correctly.

    One last tip -- try not using the chicken scratch lines. A confident, sweeping but badly placed line looks much better than a scratchy line that's in the right spot. It looks neater, and it trains your mind to get it right sooner. It also gives your lines character.

    Looking forward to more. Those are some gorgeous landscapes, you're brave to take them on, they always leave me confused and discouraged, lol. How'd you get started on those? Your landscapes look like you've put far more time into them.

    Yeah I have a few books from Bridgeman , I have never really studied the face so all I do is draw from what I see infront of myself , in those cases , people who modeled in class. But I might have to take a closer look at those Bridgeman books.

    I honestly don't know what I do when I do landscapes. I just try to get a decent shape , work from that and experiment a little. On my last one I didn't really spend all too much work on...maybe 2 hours? On my previous ones i've spent at least 5+ hours on but at some point I just hit that wall and don't know how to go on. I'm not sure if this answers your question

    It's been a lazy Saturday... I drew this from the Bridgeman book "Heads, Features and Faces" before I dozed off ( not because it was boring )

    Did some sketching while watching a movie. It's not impressive...but I have the feeling that I have learnt something about the proportion of the face. So that's a plus.

    Hi frankfrank,
    nice effort here. I personally think that you go overboard with your brushes and textures. Try the round default bruhes first. Draw draw draw. Your animal studies are good.
    greetings

    Yeah Klaus... I've been told quite a few times before :/ I can't help it but I think it really needs to stop before it becomes a habit. And thanks Okkoto ^^
