Heelllo there! been kind of busy but i managed to make it on time, great work guys!
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.

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!
Obstfelder: You've got some great stuff, I'm especially a fan of your color studies, and your face are very good. I don't really have anything else to say, just keep it up.
Hamorhage: Nice gestures, especially your faces. You really captured them there, well done.
Serix: Nice stuff! You tend to pet your lines just a touch, but it's not that much.
Tim Murphy: Thanks for the kind words! Your gestures are good, but your faces look kind of cartoonish (unless that's what you were aiming for). And I'm especially a fan of your quick stick figures.
Jarkuzy: Welcome to Spartan Camp! You finished your 50 really fast, and they look great! Nice job.
cumquat: Your faces are very good, but some in your first post look a little like caricatures, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. You do need to work on skin tones some, though, I think. And thanks for the tuts!
AdrianNagorski: Your gestures are fine, but I think with your faces that you should work on putting down guidelines. In your upper left face, for example, her eyes are a tad crooked. Just study the skull and the face as a whole instead of focusing on the features. You've got some great stuff, though, man.
Animare: Nice stuff, but your 30 sec gestures seem a tad wibbly wobbly and could be strengthened. But you have some great faces.
wla91: I don't really have any critiques for you, all your stuff is good! Is that Louis C.K. you painted a couple times?
J8stine: Thanks for the critique, I'll make sure to do that. Your stuff is very good, and your color studies are very interesting. Not bad!
biro: Welcome to CA, and to Spartan Camp, biro! Your stuff isn't too bad, but your faces tend to get kind of skewed. Are you putting down guideline before you go into detail? If not, you really should. Hoping to see you more around here!

Great effort everyone!
Thanks for the feedback Zombie. I'm gonna try and return the favor, but I'm out of time right now.
Did some last minute face studies from here. Nice to have turnarounds of the model like that.
