    Hi azsha

    congrats on your dedication. you're progessing !

    you colors compositions are pretty good

    my advice is still to do more construction (draw some box, cylinders alones to practice them)

    some of your posts are well proportionned, some not. this means you just need a bit of focus on it.


    thank you for visiting my sb

    Zou, thanks for the feedback and crit. You're definitely right about the critique, human proportion are off. It's something that I try to mend.

    I joined a group on facebook Daily spitpaint and I've done some of the topics like: Birth from flowers and Crystal warrior.
    First Birth from flowers, was done under 30 minutes and second version 45 min

    Great stuff! focus in the proportions but without loosing the fluidity of the gesture; sutdies look great!

    Hi Azsha (Nika) – Nice to read your comments on my sketchbook again! Thanks. I hope you are doing well. You have some cool updates with lots of hard work which is encouraging to see.

    You talk about not seeing progress, well I can see tons of progress. A friend of mine posted this video, which sums up how we see our own work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qb0g_gWrNf8

    Your small thumbnails look really good so I think with your larger pieces you just need to spend more time rendering and getting those edges sharp, or at least further defined. Three or four pieces really stand out to me; Fishing girl, African guy with big hat, man in white with rifle and your self portrait. Feng Zhu says that speed painting is not helpful when learning as it's the invested time, commitment and struggling that people remember and learn from.

    Failure? No way, keep on mixing it up! If you want a change try experimenting with brushes and textures.

    Hi. Nice updates... any chance you could keep going with the tiny black and white statue? (top right) The lighting looks really interesting on her. Why are they so little?! I think you could post bigger without losing any of the energy. Thanks for the comments and support. Take care and speak soon. \o/

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and for the kind words.
    Your dedication is impressive and progress is showing up. I especially love the statue study in post #159. Gorgeous colors and atmosphere.

    If I may risk a remark, it is this one: in much of your studies of standing people, they seem to float around in an empty space. You might try and place them on a ground and paint a cast shadow. It would really help to define the forms better and enhance immensely your compositions.
    A good exercise would be to draw simple forms, like cubes, cylinders, cones, deciding of a single light source, shadowing the different planes accordingly and projecting the shadow on the surroundings. It really helps acquiring the sense of solidity and presence. You could even try and do that traditionally, using different sort of hatchings, for ewample. I would also suggest doing somme perspective exercises from time to time.
    Two fantastic books: Color and Light, by James Gurney, and Light for Visual Artists, by Richard Yot.

    Again, what I see here is progress: better anatomy and proportions, more confident brush strokes, some really nice colors, interesting sketches.... Keep it up!
