    Welcome to CA! Great start with those pictures, and I really like the color scheme on the last one, as well as painterly feel to it, it shows that you have a traditional background. Hope ya finish it and post more.

    Oooh, nice painting.
    The figure is working fine, in my opinion the weakest areas are the forest on the background and the perspective. I can't make sense of it, with the trees, sofa and lines on the ground pointing each to different horizon lines.

    Todays sketches

    Practising painting thumbnails (and environments), used about 10minutes max to each. Mainly done with one brush too. Feels like a good warm up practise. Used random ref images and painted with really zoomed out canvas so that I had no chance to start detailing these.

    They are really damn cool! (Especially for as little as 10min) Good idea for practicing, too, might give it a try myself c:

    Lingonberries

    A bit of last night sketching, traditional this time. Lingonberries to A5 sized sketchbook with pencil. And my scanner eating up the finest lines. Probably it's mad at me 'cause I've let it collect dust for a while.

    Little by little

    Worked forward the painting. Nose, left shoulder, left hand worked forward. Changed background to suit the story of the picture better.

    Anatomy

    Traditional again, A5 size, black graphic pencil. This time anatomy study from "the artists complete guide to facial expressions" book by Gary Faigin. Face and facial bones to try to learn where different stuff goes to. Scribbles underneath the drawing are my notes about this stuff.

    Hi! Great work with most forms, but I'd suggest you study the planes of the face and head! Still, you're much more advanced then I am, so it's hard to give a good critique! Keep it up, mate!

    Randomeister Hmm, probably should open up the Loomis books again and try couple of studies from there. Thank you for the comment.

    Doodling

    Drawing face at night, so late it could be said it's early results faces which you can cut in half and make two faces of. Seriously speaking flipping the image really helps, but not at night. Going to sleep now.

    Hey! Good work so far, uhm the proportions in the last face aren't bad, although I think you need to spend some time working out the features. They are uhm very simple, the way you've done them, very symbolic of what the features actually look like. I guess an example is the eyes, if you look there are no lids...but yeah I mean I get if you were tired haha we all have those drawings. Either way, keep it up!
