Dude good to see you back! You are still shit hot at portraiture. Sad to hear you are on a downer dude, i guess it happens sometimes. What is your definition of things 'working out as an artist'? The way i see it you already are one. If you feel that you 'cant draw' try and define why. What your expectations are, in general, because if you want to get better you just have to put the time into it and fail at it until you succeed. Look how far you came with portraiture, look at the time you put in drawing all those eyes separately etc so that you could do it more confidently. You have come far. Repeat that shit for figure drawing and perspective etc and it will come together. You have proven to me that you have the power.
If you put lots of time into the areas you want to get better at, you will get better!

I really love your portraits. They have a good sense of rhythm and light to them. Your figures do seem like they're improving, even if you don't see your own progress - sometimes I think as we learn to see more, we think we're getting worse but it's actually our judgment getting better, which is followed by the art getting better. Or maybe you're just having a bad day/week, some days I can't draw what I drew easily the day before, and my hands just seem clumsy. It's frustrating, but keep going!

Hello friend! I have quickly had a look through your work and can clearly see the improvement, everytime you post your concerns with where you are at it makes me smile because i know that voice oh too well. I look at your work and envy you, and though this doesn't mean much, what I am trying to say is that if this were going to be quick then it would be easy and everyone would do it. Its long because its hard, and you have shown incredible discipline in spite of the self doubt most of us experience. Keep it up, I hope these words help to empower the embers of your creative flame, this from a candle that has dwindled many times. All the best friend.
plus keep it up cause I love looking at your work alot of character and excellent form!
I'm friendly say hi :-D

Kimonas - Thanks for the encouragement! Been thinking about what you said all day, now i'm super pumped to get going again. I think just not drawing for a while was the problem. You go out of your zone and it's really hard to get back in. Always there for me bro! You're kicking ass right now! High five!
@Hazel - Thanks so much for dropping by! Nice to see some new faces. Glad you like my portraits. I still feel really average at them though, but like Kimonas said I came a long way. It just shows how long the journey is! Especially if you are teaching yourself . Yeah, figures need to be much improved, for sure.
@Austin - Hey dude, thanks so much for taking the time to look through my sketchbook . Always happy when someone takes the time to do that. Glad you can empathise with me there about the 'sad art feeling* haha. I guess I have to look on the bright side of things. I'm still here, I haven't given up when a lot of people have. Onwards and upwards. I always just feel like I let myself down. Like I should have been this, or could have been that. I hate that feeling. Anyway, thanks for the comment, means a lot!
Here's a quick Maughan study from tonight. I actually did two, just playing around with the other one, will upload it tomorrow. I like the feel of this one, got closer to that traditional look.
Thanks for stopping by .

Hey dude nice to see you posting , in that last post the images come up as being broken
November 20th, 2014 #251
Thanks dude, fixed it now. Been having nightmares with the attatchment manager. For some reason when you upload it also puts the same set of images up as attatched images, meaning the images come up twice. Really annoying, not sure what's been changed.

Your sketchbook inspired me to try again on ca.org... No critiques, just wanted to say your work is FANTASTIC... Really enjoy your portraiture
November 21st, 2014 #253
@Babylon - that means so much dude! Really glad i could inspire someone on that level! Thanks for commenting!
Right, let's give this a try. Might contact the admins about this, because I have to put these in as attatched images, it means i can't arrange them neatly. Don't know what they've change :/. Sorry for this scrambled mess, here's all the recent stuff!

Thanks Kimonas, should have listened to you all along! But my fire has been lit.
Had a real productive day! Did a bunch of torso studies, some skulls, staying fresh with a few faces, then a fun Destiny portrait sketch to end the night.

For some reason I can't see all the pictures here Not sure what's wrong! Anyway - Lovely to see you work so hard with anatomy. Also, nice portrait in the latest batch. As far as my critiques go, try to vary the skin colors a bit. It also seems that the saturation fades out in the shadow hues, making it look pretty grey'ish. It could be that you're using blacks in your shadows, or that you're taking the same hue, and just darken the value of it.
Keep it up! :>

Thanks Uriamu, I know there seems to be something missing and you might just have it here, i do use blacks in the shadow, when I really shouldn't do! Need to learn more about colour
Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year! I know I haven't updated in a while, but I have still been practicing, here's a couple of digital pieces for now, will try and get back soon!
