drawings from last 2months.
I am not sure if it is big enough ?
fresh sketches and some studies
(studies 30 minutes to 2h)
Good work so far. I feel some impressionist style. I like that landscape with trees specially. But the faces need more knowledge of anatomy. Find some books of humana anatomy and try reading to understand the meaning and copying the pictures to practice the drawing. I'm doing this and it is helping me.
Really some good stuff here--however I would suggest you work on facial anatomy. Try looking at Loomis stuff, and then studying more from pictures to see the construction in the faces you draw.
to Cojac ; Thank you, I like impressionist style, some abstract touch with colours in a picture, something i would maybe develop later.
I will take a look in some books--> there are things in the face i can't understand well right now, books should be a good help to fix it !
to SgtBubbles ; Thank you, i will do my best this year fighting ahah ^^ I hope to get better, and work more.
to RissaKay ; Thanks , i will do some Loomis studies soon I think, I want to correct that, faces are so important in a drawing;
Thank you again for your feedbacks!
Thanks for stopping by my sb!
Your figures look pretty amazing and only done in 3-10 minutes? Thats insane.
Crits and help of any kind are more than welcome!
wow, beautiful lines, i see, you really concentrate when drawing, thats good, because i dont, im an lazy ass sometimes XD.. i dont know how you are learning (for example: me, first i
learn the male body frontal etc, then female body, after i know perfectly, i go ahead and learn the details, one by one(arms, legs, skull etc.. and i dont care too much about other stuff)) but i see some perspective issue in your faces, mybe study a skull perfectly, if you know how a skull is built then you can draw it faster and better.
but your bodies are looking good, they are round. oh and something that helps me (i guess you know this already...) but though i tell you: watch over the whole figure when drawing, this helps you to draw the expressions/proportions better, because the things react to each other- like the arm to the leg, torso to hips etc.. i hope you understand

Lovely work! And your dedication and hard work are paying off!
I think you have a good feel for portraits and you'll continue to blossom and flourish with them as you continue to practice. You probably know this, but look at your portrait work in the mirror (or flop in Photoshop) to see the "mirror image" of the face. That will help you see where things are irregular. You're really doing well with the faces and figures; just keep on working and refining your skill (like we all should do)! I think you're doing wonderfully.
Hey, so your life drawing is looking really nice. It looks like your knowledge female anatomy is quite solid and your linework has a nice confidence to it. Your also applying perspective correctly in those studies. However, your drawing of your friend on the street shows that your perspective skills could do with some training. If you learn the basics of perspective, it'll help you with constructing bodies from imagination and allow you to start stepping away from reference only work, should you want to do so.
hey thank you guys for your reaction, I appreciate it!
so time for new drawings,from life as usually and a satyr ahah
I started more personal from imagination things, I hope to finish it and to show you soon.
@Thanks Avon !!
@thanks Kat_Warrior, I didn't know there is improvements already^^happy to know that

@thanks celadon for your support, i will practice your advices!
@thanks jondawo, you put the finger on a great weakness i have for the moment, i work on it. When I realise that I couldn't just draw a flotting character on a white page. I take lessons and I will show some environments next time
have a good and inspiring day
