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.

Some horrible scans. Deeply sorry about this , next time they'll be better.
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.
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.
I don't particularly like goats or goat cheese but it's the first thing that popped into my head. Not literally. And not the goat cheese.
Maybe i'll work on this a bit more .. also I tried a completely different approach and I'm quite happy with the outcome!
stuff from school again.
