Painting the torso from imagination.
bed time! soooo tired lol
This took a while. Imagination and a bit of reference.
fun fun stuff lol
Cool sketchbook so far! There's a lot of good stuff in here. It's good to see you're doing a lot of studies. Your portraits and landscapes are pretty gray-blah though, it seems like you're afraid to go darker with them and lighter with the lights to up the contrast. I do that too, though(I need to take more own advice more, I get caught in midranges and just stay there for a while). Keep up the studies! I really like your sb!
Thanks for the advice I will do that. Pretty much I'm just doing a lot of studies. Mainly master copies and things from my imagination.
Here's another painting I still do another but I'm sure I wont finish it so I will post it later today
Here's another study
Here are some stuff before bed. I need to get up early tomorrow. Cant stay up too late.
I been under the weather lately and also busy on finishing some portfolio pieces. But here is some stuff. It is kinda weird. For some reason I felt like i forgot how to paint but the more I was doing it the memories came back.
Sweet studies! I like how you're handling lighting. I agree with Spelledeg, get a little more risky with the values But you are thinking about a lot of stuff so far, so you're on the right track!
I think you are straightening up the facial features too much, there is a little more rythm of depth/concavity/convexity/volume to it than you are perceiving so far! Try to look at your face and feel it, look at others' too. Not sure about feeling (literally touching) their faces, but use your eyes to face-touch hahaha. The thing that -really- helped me understand this better was sculpting a skull and a head in clay in class at school. There are some volumes/rounded surfaces and the other stuff that I mentioned that if you don't get right, make it look way too blocky and wrong... so we have to understand that in our spacial imagination I find it helps a lot. Maybe try a sculpting program to experiment!
Keep up the good work!
Oh and I think smaller uploads, dimension-wise, wouldn't be a bad idea... but it's not that bad, just I think most of us like it to be slightly smaller... but... I dont wanna come off as being anal so whatever hahaha

Here's my last study of the day lol I need to go to sleep lol Thanks for the feed back. Actually I made a head clay sculpture. I do my light studies on the maquette i made. I'll try to take a picture and post it up. I haven't dive into 3D but I'll try out one day though. Also Im trying to be more freely on the values. Definitely Ill take more time drawing different people from imagination. A book that really helped me a lot is Figure Drawing Design and Invention by Michael Hampton. Best book!!! One of my friend recommended to me and I recommended to my art friend from school and it's worth the 25 dollars. That book is really good.
I need to eat lunch now lol Here's something fun lol
A last piece before bed.
I been out mostly all day. My brother was showing me how to drive so that was fun and a bit nerve breaking lol Here's an environment study. Im being careful with my brush strokes.
