    last painting is nagging at me, looked wrong!

    So here's an update. Gonna leave it at that and get back to studies

    Details are meh, but I have no idea how to do them yet. Studies required I guess.

    Tonight a few life studies, spent most of the time on the mouse/mousepad painting. I know it looks super rough, but I did spend a good 3 hours on it, I guess I am just super slow

    Hoping for that to improve eventually.

    Only got to do traditional drawing (ballpoint pen) yesterday due to an unexpected, though pleasant, visit. Quick apple sketch (30 minutes) while the unexpectees (? wait, what?) are napping.
    From photoref, it does so feel like cheating compared to life painting (I can never find the same viewpoint whenever my eyes shift away from the ref, practice I guess, eh )

    Must keep still life refs nearby. Expect a still life apple on cloth soon!
    (edit: now with a few fixes here and there, as a gif! fun fun)

    Monday evening update. Spent the entire day on a selfportrait / form study.
    greyscale to focus on form rather than colours, one less colour plane to confuse me, really think it helped! This SP actually looks a liiiittle bit like me

    Bit too heavy on the eye shading, must pay more attention
    For the next SP ill try to save the process as well.

    Hi Izer, thanks man, I definitely will!

    So today a quick environment followed by a bonzai tree study (because the trees in my environment were absolutely dreadful)
    phew, trying to get every leaf right from a reference is a killer, guess Ill be less of a ref-slave next time and try to grasp the general leaf/twig placement instead

    Finally got back to pencil sketching a bit from life today. Maybe I was just in the "zone" or lucky with my pencilstrokes, but it really felt easier than it usually does! So either Im less bothered by my mistakes ,or Im actually improving

    Pictures taken with my phone, not the best solution but it'll have to suffice for now.

    So in order of posting:
    SP ~1 hr
    gestures/quick drawings (120 sec per drawing or so)
    life drawing fun w. pencil ~1½ hrs
    photo study, little mermaid, ~1 hr

    note: Looking at the little mermaid study I can see how terrible the water is haha. Will have to study that.
    Expect next update on 18/06-2012, will be away for the weekend.

    Good evening CA.org.

    Yet another update, finally got the time to upload. Work has been killing me, spent a lot of time reading/studying hogarth for faces, along with sketching a ton of 2 minute poses/heads. Really helps to get proportions right on the initial sketch I guess.

    Lots of fun, please crit me so I can improve


    Last SP took 40 mins, impressed with the amount of details/form I got down in that time, unfortunately Im out of time for today
    I believe the form studies (funny coloured shaped) have helped, must do more!

    Last update before the weekend (going away again, Ill try to bring pen/paper this time)

    2-3 hours of gestures (edit: 45 sec per pose, used to doing 2 mins per pose, so pardon the incomplete people here and there) followed by two photo studies, each around 2 hours.

    Worst part of posting just before bed, too hyped to fall asleep because I feel Im making progress.

    Tonights sketch dump, a few drawings from the weekend and a digital one from today (imagination random girl, yay Im starting to get the facial features pinned down more accurately, must keep going at it!).
    The spacehelmet girl is actually a ref study of a cover from Imagine FX, created by Derek Stenning, check him out if you dont already know of him! - Amazing stuff

    You win an internet for sticking with a study for so long
    That looks pretty cool for coming from imagination only. I think it could use more variation in values, to give it a bit more of interest. The tree in the middle of the forest looks out of proportion (unless it's meant to be a huge tree), it's almost as big as the car in the foreground. Also, the waterfall should be a bit more vertical.
    I liked the drapery study too. Drappery is a lot of fun to draw.
    "Great job guys! I love you. You're fired."

    Thanks Januz!
    Ahhh I can definitely see your point about the waterfall! I didnt think about following the perspective of the waterfall when figuring perspective lines for the huts.
    And yes, the tree is meant to be large, although I agree it looks a bit lame. Must fix that. Either by making it even larger, or by replacing it.
    The values are an issue, I think the entire background has to be reworked (left top area doesnt make sense haha)

    I will give it another shot, thanks for the crit - Very much appreciated!

    Awwghh my anatomy studies consumed my soul, totally forgot about the environment workup. Must do tomorrow! (kind of afraid to go back to it haha).

    Today, anatomy anatomy anatomy. These took forever to do, slowly getting a hang of the features and their placement.
