    Thnx for posting Russell in my sketchbook. As for help many people will say the brush doesn't matter its how you paint that's important. And how you paint is all about what you want to do with your work. But that's just my opinion.

    @Samurai_Nik - Yeah a brush wont really help overall painting, although they can help give different sort of looks and textures. I've basically only used round brush, Been wanting to try some others out.

    --------

    Decided today I had to put some good time into studying. Woke up earlier then usual, Started with the screen cap. It was really hard, I haven't really done full scenes. my study of it looks pretty bad.

    Then I went and did those arm's, second one though I was sort of getting back into things, Haven't done much drawing/painting the last few days.
    Some gestures there to.

    I'm gonna take a bit of a break. Only break I've taken today was for dinner. I'm having trouble decided what to study, simply because there's so much. Thing's like anatomy are always useful to study. I'll figure it out though. :

    @Kevin_ - Thank you for checking my stuff out.

    -----


    Well, Today felt like a real good day. I'll be working more after I'm finished dinner but I doubt I'll post again tonight.

    The muscular baby faced dude, a little messed up of a concept lol. But anyway, I've been working on painting muscles, and trying to make them look semi realistic. Not size of course but the look and texture. Not done yet though

    Second alien type guy I liked so I tried pushing it. I'm not very experienced in rendering past a certain point, So I really tried to think what I could do to push it. Paid more attention to values especially. I'm not sure how I did, But I aimed for sort of a child's movie character, you know like Disney and Pixar animated movies and all that.

    Here's today's work. Finished Baby face, and did a photo study aiming on lighting of the body and just trying to get the human body melted into my mind.

    Done with past sketches so I'll be bringing brand new things to the table.

    Hey mate.Thanks for stopping in my sb

    Looks good here i like especially your buddy portrait, but also the first post with these surreal persons looks interesting.

    I would agree with zephyri Longer studies could help you improve nicely. In my opinion its a bit like with muscle training. Very important part of it is when you are already tired - but still pushing!

    Also "Every Day I don't do much or any art, It bugs me quite a bit."
    Personally i think i am the most lazy person on these planet
    But i will tell you, we all need to work everyday if we want to achieve something. Sadly there's just no other way...

    Nice improvements, keep it up. Would recommend simplifying things though, like longer lines and focusing your values into light and shadow blocks. Hope that helps!

    @Tsabu - Thank you for your comment, I'll definitely start spending more time on studies, trying to nail the aspects I'm studying. your explanation comparing it to muscle training makes a lot of sense.

    @Veshkau - My lines are a big problem, I don't keep lines in my final stuff usually, But I've been told quite a few times now that my lines aren't nice and fluid like they should be, more like a bunch of small ones connected. Something I'm trying to work on. - And lighting and shadow blocks hey, I haven't thought about trying that, Sound's like it could be quite usefull.

    ----

    Smallll update art today unfortunately . I spent the day changing my room up to better suit my needs. Searching for a corner table/desk. My table would be fine, but I need to use my tv as a second monitor because my laptop screen is too small for reference images and painting.

    Planning on doing some life nature studies from my window view as well with this new set up. Got some sketches done tonight, and added values to the one. I like it, well the idea of what it can become (the eyes are meant to be like that to, planning on making them grotesque and bulging/puffy). Hope I can make it a nice finished painting.

    ALSO I've gotten several Andrew Loomis books that where recommended I read and do. Figure drawing for all its worth, drawing heads and hands, and fun with pencils. I want to improve, and I'm so thankful for kind people in these communities sharing there knowledge and helping one another.

    ah anyway ha, sorry for all the text, not really worth the amount of art I did today but hey.

    Hey man! It's great that your are willing to be better, the books you have on your list are really awesome. another one i would suggest is "Successful Drawing" by Andrew Loomis also. I would recommend "Fun with a Pencil" to be your first, but it is really up to you, just do the studies, pay attention in some notes like that about lines, etc. And you will improve.

    Keep it up!

    @Caio_Chagas - Thank you for the comment, I may have to check that one out as well. I love drawing/painting but I really want to improve, my biggest set back has been my schedule. But I've been working on it.

    -----

    Pretty decent day. started with examples from Andrew Loomis figure drawing (read up to the first examples last night) after I did some ultra quick sketches, just to try and get the studies to stick and see if I understood the body a bit better. Also trying to work on my lines, gotta get more confident strokes.

    Took a break and ate some cake lol, was my younger brother Isaac's 16th birthday today.

    Then I started a drawing on my livestream (first time on livestream). Spent about an hour and 40 minutes. still gotta work on it. But I'm pretty tired early tonight. Either gotta define the face better, or leave the lines.

    Update - heres a video of the drawing/painting http://youtu.be/0Duy5zSk_Rg still a lot of work on it though, wanna make it nice.

    Today's work, Eye brow studies then worked on the portrait. I was gonna take the rest of the day off, But I decided to push myself. Tried a mech for the first time, and had a lot of fun doing it. I've always mainly just drawn portraits and I guess I was getting bored of that.

    Not a very good day, got up late and didn't get anything new done. Still working but I've lost steam today. was pumped yesterday though ;(

    anyway... some sketches I did before bed, and updated mech today.

    Just not feeling it today though. Might switch over to my sketchbook and just draw in there instead.

    Another update on the mech - still a few little things I could do to improve it. but It's basically done I guess.

    Update - up'd the contrast, Think I'll call it done now.
