    You guys are all being really helpful with your critiques, thanks all so much.

    I'll definitely try to do that next time, Obstfelder. I tend to just copy the model instead of study and analyze it, maybe looking less at my paper will help. And although the hotkeys tip is helpful, I'm not using photoshop and I'm not sure if it'll work with the program I am using, MyPaint. I'll try nonetheless, thanks.

    thanks for the tip obstfelder. Haha, actually no. It didn't take that long. I used this as a template.

    Head painting practice below. Skin and eyes don't look alive to me. I'm not happy with this one, but practice makes perfect. If anyone has a skintone tutorial, it would be really welcome.

    This is my favorite skin tutorial. There's 3 parts, the third has some good color palettes for various skin colors.

    Urgh, I don't know if I'll get all 50 this week. Good work so far, though, everyone.

    thank you so much Zombie Chinchilla ! Great tutorial. Can't wait to try this again. Hopefully my second try will be more successful. I also spent a bit of time looking up tutorials and I thought I'd share a few with you guys. Links to Linda Bergkvist below.

    @Obst: Thanks for that, trying to pay more attention to the shoulders now. I think I see what you mean.

    @Cumquat: Don't forget the effect of the light itself on the skin, plays a large part in the colors you see in both lit and dark areas.

    Focusing on upper body gestures for the time being. Head + neck (1min), torso (3min/6min). Faces (1-2min) need work, might need a different approach for them (or just more practice).

    Not sure if I'm too late this week, but here they are anyway. I was trying to do a few with colour to practice my tones a bit more mixed in with some looser sketches. Pencil, Pshop, pen and pastels. Mostly heads, the last few are from my cat (who is v.fluffy not v.fat).

    Obst - great range of drawings this week. Quite inspirational.

    Hamor - nice confident line making, I like the loose style, no. 22 and 12 especially.

    Serix - good range of speeds and poses, one thing I notice is a lot of your poses seem cramped like you ran out of room - try measuring with your eye how much space the extremities will take up before drawing the torso, since I think it's making you draw some arms/legs shorter just because of space issues.

    Zombie - Good start, I would use more ref and find some anatomy studies, break the head down in your mind by learning the general preportions - everyone has different proportions but knowing the basics does help.

    Tim - Good progress throughout the week esp. shoulders and faces, I dont think I have any advice to give other than what has already been said.

    wla91 - Your tonal faces are great,especially 36 and 39 for capturing expression.

    hi,
    this is my first post here. i regularly read the boards and think these challenges are pretty interesting. i have found time to have a go at this one so see what you think.
    everyone's posts look really good. my sketches averages between 1-3 mins each....still a bit too long.

    thanks for the reference links everyone - they were very helpful!
