    Wonderful job on these pieces; I love how you drew the hands. Very nice rendering. The digital pieces could be a bit more defined, but other than that, you're off to a great start. Keep up the great work! I would love to see more of your art.

    Great start, I'm looking forward to more. Maybe try slowing down and cleaning up your lines. Anyway, keep it up.

    The studies look better as well as the faces.Remember what I wrote in the old sketchbook,self portraits in front of the mirror and as far as rendering goes,try to pick up some night time photos or just do life drawings of statues or something to improve your skills.Good luck!

    All studies are great!
    A little advice - maybe u should start rendering with cross-hatching, and not just contour.
    I personally find it easier to render this way(getting all the values) - so maybe u'll benefit from it

    I like your shading. If I may suggest, start noticing the quality of the edges between shadow and light. They usually go from very hard to very soft. The better you capture the edge quality, the more accurate your forms will look.

    Great work, keep them coming.

    thank you for all of your advice, I will keep those things in mind in my future work.

    Right now I'm practicing some painting.
    and I feel like I can't paint to save my life.
    I couldn't get the values to match the reference that much at all.

    You seem to have a good feel for seeing values, those sketches are all nicely done. The painting looks good, just try not to over-do it from the start. Choose a few colors and block them in with a large brush, then you can work on blending them together.

    As a side note; I find those types of studies are a lot nicer to do from a still life setup instead of a photo.

    Hey, firstly: thanks for visiting my sketchbook
    Secondly: I really like your hands and torso studies. Your digital stuff isn't yet on the same level as the traditional drawings but I think it'll change in no time if you keep practicing, keep it up, man
