    Improvement Sketchbook

    It's summer again and I have loads of time on my hands. Usually this is the time I improve most--though that's not to say I improve a lot. Anyways, I'll try to upload daily since I am planning to make art everyday, but sometimes things happen or I get too lazy (hopefully not though).

    I would appreciate critiques. They will help a lot. Thank you :]

    (I'll change this attachment picture later)

    I'm working on drawing the head with an Andrew Loomis book. Drew these yesterday. Some of them are from observation while others are from imagination.

    Keep going man, i'm starting a summer training schedule myself, I believe if you keep that rythm with faces study you will start to see some good progress in maybe two weeks ? I hope you will ! You're on the good path anyway !
    I will be looking for your next updates !

    Ho and, KEEP AT IT ! : D I have seen loads of "summer sketchbooks" last year, which lasted only one month or so, that's sad because they all had a good potential ! So keep rockin !

    I am not sure how long you are taking for you Loomis head studies but take your time - do them as perfectly as you can. Read what he's talking about and apply it. These are solid and good practice - but the more you internalize what he is doing, the more it can become a tool. I think. This is only one guys opinion of coursE!! ( though I have done many many Loomis studies!)

    Bleh late reply. Thanks Kevinwueste for the advice. I try to take in the information in the book, but sometimes I have to go back and reread things to freshen up my memory.

    I'll be posting everyday hopefully after Wednesday since I traveling back and forth between houses and one of the houses doesn't have a scanner
    And I found that it is important to always establish a viewpoint when drawing or else a person's head will look like an alien.
