    Good to see you work so hard!

    A tip for your portraits, but I think someone said it already - try building it up more.
    You might find these interesting, if you haven't seen them yet:

    Isn't it a weird feeling training yourself to actually draw what's in front of your rather than symbols that we've used out entire lives? Your face studies look great! Now just apply those to your portraits and you'll be set Just remember that all facial features exist on a curve...our faces aren't flat blocks, but are cylinders. It's tough, but keep practicing and it'll become more and more natural and you'll end up wondering why you ever saw the world any other way.
    Sketches!

    Crown Lullaby Thanks and those links you gave me are superb , really helpful I'll look into it tonight and do more sketchy sketchies.

    LukeStarkiller I don't consider it a weird feeling, I've been told when I started drawing last year that everything consists of squares and circles. Though that wasn't really about organic studies or things similar.I do try to apply the knowledge gained from the Bridgemann studies to the portraits but yeah, doesn't always work or look that way

    Hi Frank, I am really enjoying your sketchbook so far. It's always great to see a
    dedicated person putting the time in to improve. I like your value studies and
    I must say that for someone who just started drawing in September, I think
    you are doing quite well.

    I have noticed, and a few people have mentioned the flatness in some of the
    facial features you draw, particularly the eyes. I've attached an image that should
    (hopefully) help. When drawing eyes, I always like to remind myself that an eye
    is essentially a ball with folds of skin wrapped around it. You may benefit from
    sketching the spherical form of the eyeball before adding the eyelids and iris on top.

    Here is a video that illustrates the concept. Hope this helps you, and keep
    on truckin'!

    Thanks Viconia eyes are such a big problem for me right now.

    I also feel bad for not posting something yesterday but that doesn't mean I didn't draw. I just wasn't happy with what I had so I didn't want to upload it.

    I was browsing CA in my break today and I just got really inspired to do more than I am currently doing. So I got myself some paper and practiced head proportions and hands a bit. Sorry about the brightness , I didn't really use a hard pencil...

    It is okay, Frank. Please don't beat yourself up over not posting. Art can be very frustrating at times and I don't blame you for not wanting to post stuff that you are unhappy with.

    Good to see you are doing more studies! I really admire the fact that you are practicing hands. Most people tend to shy away from practicing them, so I like that you are jumping right into it. The only crits I have at the moment are that you may want to watch out with the spacing of fingers and placement of joints on your hands, because they don't quite seem to be lining up.

    Glad to see that you got inspired. Keep at it.

    Viconia - Well , you're right. But I'll still do this on a daily basis unless there's no scanner or computer around.

    What I did for a couple of hours this morning. My task is to fill in that whole page with bones or skulls from a model Skeleton. The whole page/picture/huge sheet of paper goes into a frame once it's done.

    I think it looks quite nice so far , couldn't make a proper picture but when it's finished I'll bring my camera to school.

    W.I.P

    Decided to do something different than studies for a change. Quite fun but the thought of trying to get the face properly is frightening for me :|
