I wanna be the guy
I've decided to create a new sketchbook because I didn't draw for over half a year and the last one became a mess
Hoping for some useful advice and tips
my last three photo studies:
and some pencil practice:

I think more fundamental studies is what you need buddy. Gotta make sure you got a good strong foundation in drawing before you jump into paint. Keep working hard!

Hej mate, you made some really awesome progress in a short time (even considering your latest brake).
These portraits looks better, and better. Just keep it up, and don't make any more brakes for god sake!
Games of thrones ftw! Did you read the books already? Listening audiobook while drawing works really nice. (Just finished listening Dance of Dragons)
Ja bym sie tam nie przejmował zaleceniami, że trzeba być super hiper z rysunku, żeby móć wskoczyć w malarstwo. Można i tak, ale mnie uczyli żeby caly czas i rysować i malować.
Ta warstwa\maska czarno biała się przydaje, żeby sprawdzać sobie jak praca by wyglądała wyłącznie w walorze. Feng Zhu z tego często korzysta.

You think so? That's awesome then
I'll try to not make any longer brakes this time.
Hmm, not all of them yet, the last one I read is the first volume of part 3. I'll have to buy the next one. And the show is airing in 5 days!!
Hmm, maybe you're right but I feel good practicing in pencil so I think that I'll do as you said, both digital and pencil.
I was on a festival during the weekend so I couldn't draw, yesterday I drew sth in pencil, not much but I'll try to keep going with Loomis for a while at least
and I want to participate in this week's CHoW, even if I'm 2 days late, especially because I really like the topic this time
ah and btw, fix the link in ur signature, after they switched servers urls look different

Hey man! nice start. As V3T said, you should keep working the fundamentals. I would suggest you learn constructive anatomy, either check into Loomis and Bridgman. This will really help you to understand form and get better at painting. I also think you should draw more in pencils, and try to do value renders. For me this has been the best way of learning to paint, by being able to "paint" with pencil. It's very hard in the beginning because you have to think differently than you're used to, but once you start to understand values things will fall into place.
Keep it up! looking forward to see more

Heyya! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook!
People have already been giving you good advice. I would do some loomis, I would also look into riven phoenix, he is very good.
The main thing that I would suggest to you is to try painting in grey scale.
It is much easier to learn to paint without having to worry about color at the start.
You can create forms and learn how to light objects easier this way.
A lot of really good people do this, so it isn't like a noob technique or anything either.
Good luck and keep up the good work!
