    Mosen: Thanks. I have seen your today update. Nice work on Loomis.

    For today update i made another portrait, some quick 45s gestures and more hands. Also another landscape, now with extra random lines.

    The faces are looking so much better! They're looking much more proportionate and have a better sense of volume. In answer to your question about what I use for shading, I use a 2B normal pencil. I find that since it's softer than HB it shades nicer. I usually blunt it a little by scribbling on a spare piece of paper so I can have a nice flat edge, it makes the shading smoother.

    Rovanna: Thanks for the tip and visit. I just probably need more practice with those pencils.

    Started with Hampton today. Gonna go page and page and practice different things from it. Made some gestures using wrapping lines to show if objects are receding from or coming to viewer. Got some hang of it. Tried some balance stuff, but my figures are kinda messy for now. Plus two 10min heads.

    Hey grav good start ! For help ctrl-paint has some great tutorials in traditional and digital drawing http://ctrlpaint.com/library , check out the traditional section it covers many basics you will learn as a tip try to draw some simple forms in 3d dimensions to get a feel for it, since you still draw flat but it will help for still lifes as well, try to imagine the forms in them so you break the flatness !. Enjoy the learning and good progress so far.

    wow, really like the plant! I can imagine it was hard but it looks great! Yeah like @Cerasela said, try to see the forms, basic shapes and then it will break the flatness of drawing (something I am still learning!) The plant looks really good though, keep going its great to see you progress!

    Please help me improve! Thank you for your time

    Hey, nice to see some 3d structure starting to show in your work. The plant still life is really nice, your best yet by a good margin. Looks like the studies are paying off

    I love your determination to learn more than anything. That is more than half the battle! I think it will be easier if you break up specific studies a day so you will have more focus and time for each.

    Make a goal too. Things become much easier when you have something to work towards instead of flailing in the dark! Don't waste your efforts and try not to burn yourself out!

    Nice job so far, keep it up (:

    Hampton is great for anatomy, I would suggest Andrew Loomis for heads though, the plant study looks good, keep posting!

    Cersela: I watched some of his videos. It's a nice site.

    Mosen: Thanks for encouragement. It took few hours to make, it was bothering me if I can draw this so I tried. Worked somehow.

    Mannyhaatz: At different days I try to do different things. There are just so many things to learn, I figure studying and drawing anything helps.

    M.Calza:
    Right, Loomis seems ok for heads. Hampton book feels kinda better for anatomy though.

    So I was working on drawing heads from imagination for last 2 days and it turned quite bad. Gonna practice on separate face features today. So complicated. Also some late hands.

My desk at work is filled with pages and pages full of doodles. But I draw at an art academy where I focus on figurative art from live model and portrait painting and drawing is my main focus, something I want to perfect and take to a professional level. I recon it's best to focus my time and to be very good at one thing rather then being allround but avarage. If I commit to something I want to be the best at what I do and I won't settle for less, it's just the way I am. Besides it's not like I can't draw other stuff, it's al light, shadow and perspective, same basics apply to everything, I just happen to like faces, it's like people who like boobs, or sex, or drugs, me...I like faces .

    Hello!
    keep those studies up! : ) also for face studies it would help if you could see them as cubes/balls etc
    remember eye balls are still balls! : P
    nevertheless you are off to a great start! gogogo!

    Setherial: Yeah it really shows you like them, and you have become really good at drawing them. For now I try to practice drawing different things. Thanks for the comment.

    Niam: I tried to use Loomis method later while drawing those faces. I know about eyes too, but can't visualize when they start disappearing. I need to practice drawing separate face features soon.


    Another update. Some Hampton, gestures and lines. I feel like my gestures are at the same level as when I started. I hope anatomy helps with it because it sucks seeing no progress at all.

    You've definitely got the dedication thing down! The Hampton studies are great, very solid structure. Don't beat yourself up over heads and hands, just keep plugging away. They're probably the hardest things to draw.

    Try using references for the heads, especially in the beginning, and keep going with Hampton stuff.

    Kvetch: Yeah i got the dedication. Just wish I could do cool things like you in few years.

    M.Calza: I think all of my heads are from reference but those last ones. Just wanted to see how will i go without reference. But I will do more of them.

    Made an environment. Too many trees to render. I think I'm gonna go with grayscale soon.

    Your coloured environment pic is great man, its pretty cool what you can emulate with simple brush strokes sometime isn't it!

    Definitely keep up the good work with your gesture sketching, and keep it simple like your doing cause it really pays off in the end. Foundations = Awesomeness.

    Dreln: Thanks. I try to work on my environments but it's still complicated with only hard round brush. Those details are hard to paint.

    M.Calza: I like it more too. Felt like I made some progress here.


    Updating with some gestures. Was putting focus on rib cage, pelvis and some cylindrical forms. Also a phone.

    yeah that last portrait is great! looks like it needs a touch of dark in it though, seems a little lacking in value range, just my opinion

    good job on knocking out those gestures. I should do more of those... I just really hate doing them, maybe I'll have another go in the morning! nice updates man!

    Please help me improve! Thank you for your time

    Was sick recently so I didn't draw anything. I played a bit with perspective today and made some landscapes.
