    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 :|

    WIP

    decided I was too fed up with faces and went on to work on the composition I had started.

    Was great fun. Semi accomplished day today , didn't really do too much.

    Done a bit today and the day isn't over yet. >: D

    I think you're on the right path!

    Be careful with that soft airbrush brush. It's not helping you right now, making shapes and colors very wishy-washy and unclear, thus showing you're not really sure about what to do.

    Try instead: defining everything with a hard-edged brush. For "softer" edges, just choose a nuance/value "in between".
    It is possible to achieve very convincing realism with an extremely simplified layout of colored shapes. Realism is mostly a matter of the right value (and color) in the right place, and if you get these down accurately, the image will look realistic even without detail.

    Thanks Madith , and yeah I agree that it looks so wishy-washy.

    Tried one of the busts again, happy with the outcome and I think i'll use this approach more often now.

    Used only one brush and always with 100% opacity.

    hey frankfrank! I'm liking your sketchbook so far, I see vast improvements already especially in regards to your line quality. Your environments, though unfinished and just rough sketches, show a lot a promise too. Those are from your imagination, no? In any case I think they are pretty cool. :p You are doing all the right stuff you just need to do more of it. Experiment! And draw more from life. I know you are studying the human body and faces and all that jazz at the moment but believe it or not drawing from life will teach you so much, even if you can't get a live model to draw. Also, lets see some more finished pieces! Even if halfway through you notice the proportions are off and don't feel like fixing it just finish the piece, you're learn a lot from committing to a piece of work. Okay, that's all I've got hope this helps.

    Thanks ^^ And yes the environments are mostly from imagination. I'm not sure why I stop halfway through... it's just the fear of using too many brushes and making the environment a clusterfuck of "details" that don't mesh well together. And at some point I just really don't know what to add. I'll try to finish the environments in the future or redo some of the ones I've done recently.

    Glad someone likes the things I do

    More fucking frustrating faces. So far I haven't really seen any improvement in what I do. It's so , so so so so frustrating. I just feel like burning my sketchbook and throw my pencils out of the window but then I just flip the page over and try again because I know it's pointless to get so angry.

    gr. gr gr gr. girr.
