    Good start i like the texture on that girls costume and the glass bottle is pretty cool too, one thing i think you should work on is anatomy because that girls arm is throwing me off just study some Loomis or Bridgemen anyone works and that should help you a lot when drawing/constructing a character keep it up!

    Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I too see the arm being janked a bit now that it's done. Actually never really knew what to do with that sucker from the start. Bad planning, but lesson learned. Thanks for the suggestions and taking the time to check my stuff out!

    Here's a self portrait I just finished. Almost got it in in 24 hours, but atleast it's in. I might actually do more with this. So maybe it's a WIP. Name:  Portrait_Self.jpg

    nice start, very VERY nice start i must say, the fact that you treat drawing as a muscle and rely on progression is the way to go man, ALWAYS go from simple to complex, after all no one can run before they walk, you are already very good with form and seems you have a good eye, i would encourage you to make your process more efficent more intuitive so you can think only on the story of the drawing, ofcourse its still to early for that but its nice to know your end goals anyways i like looking at such ahrd working people, keep doing more stills! some artist argue that thats the way you make sound progress in your sketching abilty and yourn ability to draw what you SEE not what you THINK you see (to me the most important thing for an artist)

    keep at it and good luck!

    Thanks for the encouragement. Drawing in B&W is my favorite thing to do. If I could, I would only do it, but there's so much to learn. It's easy to venture sometimes. But yes stills are valuable to me now. I'm really struggling with my perspective, and they kind of help me. Thanks again, and it's I who is driven by artists like you who seriously grind!

    Awesome awesome start to your sketchbook. I think you have a lot of potential man! You're certainly way ahead of me in any case haha. Keep at it and you'll be great in no time. =) I don't really have much to add in terms of critiques. One thing though, if you plan on studying anatomy, I would suggest skimming through Bammes' and Hampton's books. I really dig the way they break down the human body. Anyway, I'm definitely gunna be checking this sketchbook a lot in the future. Keep at it!

    @ eroquii Thanks for the feedback, as well as the suggestions. I do certainly need to pickup some reading material. Loomis, Bammes & Hampton. Most likely in that order, but for now. I'll just keep grinding. I think it'll make a dent as well. Thanks again

    Here's today's piece. Did a photo reference side by side. But I very much wish it were from life. I like the model, but thats usually the case. Anyways. Reference link is below. I'll most likely paint this at some point, if not soon. I think chin could use some work too, as well as some cleanup and or other. Peace!

    Looks like a good start or a good continuation. There are too many small strokes on the womans blouse, if you ask me. You can also see these hairy lines on her face where the light hits. I know it's tough I still have this problem myself just trying working with a bigger brush, going from the large picture to the small details a.k.a. hierarchy.

    Keep it up!

    Yeah both, a continuation of something I tried to start before and a beginning to the digital medium. Anyways, thanks for the feedback. I think you are right on about the small brush strokes. I don't mean to be offering up excuses, but I think its a combination of me working zoomed out all the time and rarely going into see, and then posting it here and it's alot larger then I expected. Also, it could just be a bad habit I developed, or a product of in experience. I find it easier to form things with small strokes. Kind of like I would with a pencil. And I'm more concerned right now with starting and finishing daily, until today i didn't really want to take on anything overnight. In my experience it allows for me to ditch it. And I just want to move right now. But I've already began to consider your suggestions because I know it's right. And thanks so much for taking the time to offer it! Appreciated.

    Here's what I started today. Anatomy study! Pretty important to learn, and I think it's a bit off, which isn't good. I decided to paint it too, so I think thats what I'm seeing thats mostly off right now. The arms aren't intended to be resting the same, and when flipping it makes a ridiculous motion, so that makes it harder for me to observe issues. But I'll keep at it tomorrow and see if I can finish it up. Name:  Anatomy Study.jpg
