gI kicked myself to make the shadows grey (first) instead of black I also chose to highlight with a light grey instead of white.
doing so made my life super easy because I could capture the midtones more accuratly than I had before, and I always had the option to add a darkershadow when I was done with the midtones.
No I definitely mean when Im stuck in a rut... Like now >.>
THE OTHER SIDE SUCKS FOR SOME STRANGE REASONNN!!( self portrait)
Wait.... Never mind... I just saw my initial sketch and its in proportion. Im pretty anal about stuff like that. (for some reason the right side looks perfect but the left is retarded....)
Really quickly means about 2 hours
I remember I did a painting which lasted 6+ hours and >.> yea.
Yea I really want to count on feedback from others to help me improve. Also I try to finish all my paintings in one day >.< (bad habit)

Well my internet got shut down (becuase im in charge of the bill xD) but its back, and heres some of the work I did in the meantime.
Ive seen that practice makes perfect, so a few days ago I had decided that I would digitally paint every day
I need to work on shins and feet more, the most overlooked places (to me).
Any crit would be appreciated
I keep on doing this... And I definitely see the difference.
(Im so tired, its 9 but ima keep the party going)
Slanted WIP for the teen challenge.
Ive been browsing more on the forums than I have before and what Im seeing about learning illustration in general is a little bit frightening.
I never really expected to get spoon fed, but I have to really go out and find those drawing techniques myself
So im taking the initiative (again) and buying myself some books to study from.
Im planning to go to a state school for illustration and animation (if I dont get into Cooper Union first xD) and I guess im excited that I wouldn't have to depend on the school entriely to get the skills I need to develop.
I welcome any thoughts and suggestions.
