    So much work! Good stuff, the bouguereau study is particularly outstanding, would love to see the finish.

    Dem legs! That's what I was saying Pou, your legs are much stronger than your upper body at the minute when not working from ref, or maybe just in general, so it would be great if you could work more on the upper body! Dem legs tho.

    Rabdi: Thanks! Maaaaaannnn I don't know. I'll start -> a different bouguereau study. I just don't think I'm getting what I want out of that one now

    Sudafreekan: Oh haha XD I thought you meant the top portion of my legs were weak, so I was working on that partially for you too. I definitely agree with you about the upper portion. IThanks i'll get to it soon! :3

    Nice stuff Pou. The bottom legs are really nicely done. I feel like it could be a little cleaner though, the same with the rest of your studies. I know you're trying to get anatomy down, but there's some gesture work going on too, so you could kill two birds with one stone here. Look at the line work in the middle of the 3rd last image, really nice and fluid! Try and keep to that standard.

    oh you dont stop do you?
    ok ok ok... im gonna try to make critiques... but dont take them too serious ok?
    first, do you keep a good balance of imagination reference? its pointless study withouth application, your brain washed away unselss information that dont need and when you dont have info you need you become more aware of what you need when make studies, doing fro imagnation awakes your brain so try to do alway alot, also dont rush, be calm, try to be neat, take a deep breath, smell the coffe, you know... dont take it too seriously... im kinda of in the clouds right now...

    Nice studies! I can only second Buxu here, I'd also suggest to alternate between stuff from reference and stuff from imagination a little more. Just fill some sketchbook pages with random imaginary stuff, this really helps to find your anatomic/proportional weaknesses. Also it's a lot of fun to just doodle around.

    I really need to go back to what you're doing really soon. I went through that muscle and bone stuff a couple times already, but I think it's like with learning new words, you have to visit them 6 to 8 times – haha

    lookin good! you got some great linework, feels very organic. makin great progress with anatomy man! do more color studies! i think youve got a handle on colours, and i see you've been experimenting with different painting techniques also. i would imagine you'd learn a lot more from that so keep it up

    So much anatomy!!! I'm really jealous right now! Just keep rotating those body parts around
    Click it and make me happy (or sad, both are welcome and appreciated)!

    Sudafreekan: Thanks dude. Ahhah I’ll try, but it is difficult. I tend to break apart my goals…find it easier for me to grasp D: I forget so easily. I’ll try to think about quality though.

    Buxu: Why wouldn’t I take them seriously! Thank you. Yeah I don’t have a lot of time ( my excuse ) so I have to choose what I want to study so carefully that I do minimal imagination and see what my most flaw is from that. And keep it in mind that way. I’ll try to do more because it is important to use imagination definitely.

    Ecki:
    And I have to do what you’re doing. Massive amounts of studies and just awesomness in general ahahah D:::::

    Wutangclam: No….I’m so far off from colors I hide my flaws booo. Thanks for your comment

    Skawt:
    Thanks buddy….why jellu heh. Just keep posting on here and never leave again ;3

    thought i'd drop this off before i forget, tired as fugg but wanted to get this done tonight or else i know i won't, so please excuse the very crude nature of my example. also, much appreciated ur relentless honestly, with my stuff, i think i will go back to greyscale for a bit till i polish up my strokes and decide to venture into colour again. great suggestion!

    1) lineart on top layer, helps retain forms @ beginning
    Name:  demo2.jpg
Views: 465
Size:  152.0 KB
    2)solid block of main form on separate layer, i think this technique is mentioned in the CTRL paint u were talking about too
    Name:  demo3.jpg
Views: 466
Size:  165.1 KB
    3) on a new layer, ctrl+click on the tiny layer preview thumbnail of the last form-block-in layer u made and it'll make a selection around all solid objects u can then move onto new blank layer and the selection will stay on. i just use a LAARGE soft brush and paint outside of the selection, but close enough so that the soft edges of the brush will go into selection and make that curving gradient around the shape. u can also erase some gradiets if there's a solid light ege for say the pecs or collarbone to bring it up more for example. or in instance of rim lighting, put on a harder gradient, then brush over that same spot but paint even farther outside the selection so the edge of the mass will JUST barely catch the edges of the brush.

    i think you should use whatever method u find most comforable in creating a selection, lasso tool, or even quick masks with a hard brush for a cleaner edge, or quick masks with soft edge for a feathering selection.

    like i said, i think this is very wierd way to paint, as it feels inorganic to me, but certainly helps with edges and any UNCANNILY smooth surfaceshaha. lemme know if this makes sense lol

    Hey Pou. You made some super cool colors on that last portrait and I like how you're hammering away at the anatomy. Keep it up.
    I do think the neck doesn't seem to attach to the head correctly in your last portrait. Also the forms of the face are reading a little strangely. I think her face gets flattened a little because of the transition between the light hitting her cheekbones and the light hitting her upper lip area. It might help to smooth that transition out a little since it usually helps to simplify forms on female faces.

    Keep up the hard work mate

    Hey Pou!!! Nice updates! I think you did quite some stuff, even for "3 days worth of work"-standards!
    (Haha, I know that frog! – I've watched it come to life! – wow, that sounds weird for someone who doesn't know the context)

    All those sketchbook pages are pretty nice. I still want to see some more imaginary stuff in your pencil-sketchbook, though
    Did I already mention that I love the colors in your paintings? They are getting better and better.

    The face anatomy in your latest unref portrait is kinda strange, the eyes are shown too frontal and the nose is very round (maybe it's on purpose, but it looks a little strange). I think you did a better job in the pencil sketches when it comes to the face anatomy. I tried to redline what I mean (especially about the eyes:

    But remember that I'm also struggling with faces a lot, so take that with a grain of salt
