    Great to see you back again. And great progress! Your last image with the figure looking up is actually quite nice. If I can help, you are suffering bad in the same area as me, the head. Do some studies and you will put another nail in the coffin. Keep working hard!

    V3T: Thanks! Will do

    So my internet was down yesterday so I couldnt post this WIP of a study. Did some more work on it but Photoshop crashed so I guess I'll save more often haha.
    Schoolwork was eating up my time today so I couldnt keep working on this any further, will do tomorrow.
    Also did some pencil ''studies'' if you will with gas masks as a subject so I'll do a little more of those before scanning

    My internet has been pretty much out these past few days but hopefully its better now.

    First some guys in armor with no ref that I thought turned out pretty good.
    My faces need alot of work so I've been drawing more of them recently, still lost on eyes and hair so studies coming soon
    And a mini character and some gas mask studies that failed for the most part haha.. elipses are hard

    My internet has been out again but seems to be in at the moment so I scanned this real quick to upload.
    A technician is coming tomorrow to fix the modem so more frequent uploads hopefully haha

    Just a samurai type of character, need to study armor to get some interesting designs into my characters
    Scans turn out so dirty somehow, I'll try and fix it in the next one

    Kevin_ : Thanks, your pencils look amazing. More studies hopefully in the next few days

    Some quick pencils today
    They still scan so badly somehow, anyone else have this ''dirt'' problem with their scans?

    And then some studies and applying of studies I did fairly recently and some recent characters from last week or so.

    Trying to work on my pencils but they keep turning out pretty messy and the fact that most of those are done in a car during travels doesn't help haha.
    Don't take down anything, never apologize for learning. We all start at the beginning, and make a mess along the way - that's what you're supposed to do. You have to give yourself permission to make bad drawings, that's where the learning happens.
    Bad proportions - awesome, now you have something to work on. bad perspective- awesome, there's exercises for that. I found it helpful to work with box-men proportion / perspective combo.
    It can also help to draw boxes over the masses, torso, pelvis, head - it will help your brain sort out the planes of the weirdy shapes.

    for messy pencils, Col-erase are really good, the blue and red are great to work with, green is meh - the purple is a little gritty. Otherwise just using harder pencils will help if you find them a bit smudgy. Personally I like bic pens for drawing on the train / car - they have a good range in line weight - less smudgy, and you don't get tempted to erase. erasing just wastes time you could be sketching

    Anyways- keep up with all the studies- they'll all add up

    Happy sketching.

    Rhubix: Wow thanks for taking the time to write that!
    Haha yeah I sometimes forget the point of starting the sketchbook at all which is to improve. Gonna try those box-men figures!


    So here's a rough WIP of a character Im working on right now
    Hopefully it will turn out to be the first finished piece I make

    Bought a 0.3 mechanical pencil today and am going to try and step up my pencils, soo comfortable having it so thin and neat

    Question: I feel that somehow using reference for my drawings is ''cheating'' and people say its the best thing you can do to improve to just draw and draw alot from reference, anyone had this feeling?
    Anyway No ref on this one

    Did this after watching a video by Marko Djurdjevic where talks about lines and pencils and such.

    Tried to block in the basic color palette but the colors are way too saturated, doesn't really look too good yet but hopefully I'll be able to complete this one

    Need to do way more work on this, slow progress is better than no progress I guess

    Using a reference to clarify anatomy, help work out problems - that's standard - not cheating at all.
    If your doing studies, you can go nuts, everything short of tracing is good- and tracing is even good for checking your work.

    The only time it's "cheating" is when it's plagiarism.
    Reference is good.
    Reference from life is better.
    Having an attractive assistant with great anatomy that you can use for reference is best ;D

    Rhubix : Ah that clears up alot of debates I have with myself haha. Thanks for replying to my question!

    So I discovered I was grossly incompetent at painting faces especially female so the character piece is set on hold for the moment as I want to finish it rather than calling it unfinished and never touching it again.
    Meanwhile, studies. Which will be posted up tomorrow. its 12 here and I still have some work to do on it D:

    Anyway here's a WIP of the piece and as you can see I really havent made any drastic changes really, spent too much time just tweaking mostly unneccessary things and such.

    Female portrait study that I didn't really finish properly, took longer than it should have and made many mistakes that I can benefit from and apply to future pieces I guess.
    First portrait painting I've done as can be seen haha, more to come soon.
