    @Post #116: Wow, you really take those studies seriously. It's obvious that you have some trouble with hands and their proportions, but you're totally on the right track. Just keep on grinding and that will settle itself – Did I already mention that I love the dedication you're putting in? Now you know!

    Damn, you already figured out how to place those eyes on the face and think of them as 3D objects... That's something that will haunt me probably for years to come :/ Watch out for the head shape, though. It appears to be a little wonky in some of those.
    Nice studies, especially the skull studies are really beneficial, I think. That no-ref painting you did really show how all your hard work is paying off quick!

    I wish you all the best and a lot of time for drawing stuff let's motivate one another by just drawing and sharing stuff!
    I always hate to upload a whole bunch of pictures one by one, especially when I just want to hit the hay as soon as possible... ConceptArt had a bulk-upload function once but it somehow disappeared... I would love to have it back

    Let's keep it up, shall we?

    Watch out for how long you make the heads on those loomis studies! From nose to chin, it should be about a 1/3 of the length of the ball. The noses look great; I really like the one with the cross contour lines and how you're thinking about 3D form it has.
    Click it and make me happy (or sad, both are welcome and appreciated)!

    Batonik: Oh…. Q___Q I seriously was crying . Thank you!!! I bookmarked it and it was such an inspiration.

    Povan: Thank you!

    Stinkypanda: What are you talking about!!! I am slacking soooo so much. PFFT skill levels, your art makes me cringe at how delightful it is

    Ecki: Thanks, yeah heads are really complicated, I’ll try to make them look a bit more correct. Still don’t know how you managed so many in a day. Ah I still am struggling a lot with eyes though… Okay I am motivated again let’s do this.

    Sknawt: Thanks buddy Yes I must study proportions much more!!

    ---

    Okay I am embarrassed once more, I can't be asking for motivation this early on. I'll never make it if I have to rely on others for that...but it was a nice picker-upper. Anyways not much again. It was the week...but today shall be good, you'll see. Kay droppin' and goin'

    Ermagosh pou, you're making my sketchbook look like poo D: I gotta catch up yo. Leaving peeps in the dust. Cannot have that right now!

    As always I enjoy looking at your studies. I like how you're using bridgman extensively. Keep it up. Because I'm going to get ya xD

    Also you color, gah, you color, freaking talented meanie! xD I'm sure you'll get over your slump, I hope things are well since the accident btw. Keep up the hard work Pou.
    Kill it it's moving! D:

    Nice studies! I like the hands. Are they all from Bridgman, or did you sneak some of your own hands from life in?
    Because if you didn't, try to do that! It always helps to try applying what you've learned after a study.

    I like the skulls you did. But the lower right painted skull has some problems. The eye-sockets are too high and the forehead normally recedes back. This makes the profile of that skull quite wonky. But with some more studies, it should be alright.

    In your latest painting, you've experimented with some fancy brushes. You can do that if you like, but I think for learning it's better to just stick with the regular hard-round brush for now.
    That said, I really like the blue secondary light source you've put in.

    For your no-ref paintings, you should keep an eye on the values. For that, you can put an all-black layer ontop of your painting and set it to "color". That way, you get a B/W image to check the values. I always keep such a layer at hand to check every now and then.
    And I'll suggest it until you finally do it – do some no-ref paintings with a STRONG as fuck light-source. It really get's you thinking about that stuff and helps you plan the light. I'll try to illustrate that now:

    See how much easier it is to figure out the form when you have a clear light. Just paint it in like that, you can erase it back out later on. You don't have to do it, but I think that this would really help you get over your no-ref "value muddyness".

    I hope I wasn't to harsh here?

    Cool to see you working hard. I love the linework in hand studies and the skull study is nice. The mermaid requiers a wider value range. Right now i can see that its from about 2 to 7 (where 0 is white and 10 is dark as hell) but that's okay. It's a good thing that u are trying to chalange yourself. You need to develop a 3d thinking and gain more experience to do a good unref painting but don't stop doing them, you can figure out a lot of things through happy accidents . Keep up the good work!

    Yuniken: Thank youuuuu. Ugh you’re the propropro. I saw your color version of my sketch and its gorgeous!!! So beautiful ; _ ;. Such a level up

    Solita: Thanks!!!!! LOL. Ahahha come get me~ My colors are really messed up though… I can’t see accurately at all. The accident is in the past and I’ve learned from it. I hope you are well also.

    Ecki: Q____Q… I-I think I’m handicapped with light source. I seriously don’t know how to do that or understand. You made my mermaid look so awesome though. Ugh. Ah no no no you aren’t harsh at all! I really do appreciate all your advice, because it is meaningful... I just think it will take me awhile to get it

    Batonick: Thanks buddy!! Yeah I even was checking my values with the mermaid, but alas. I need to practice moaarrr

    Sknawt: lol

    Okay. Onto unref stuff all yucky and in my comfort zone still. a couple with BEFORE adjustments and then AFTER adjustments. If it doesn't have a before/after then it wasn't auto corrected color.

    Wow, nice! Much, much better unref stuff! Cool texture in the last two and good job on figuring out the lights and darks. Keep on working on these and try maybe something out of your comfort zone. People tend to improve on the old stuff when they try something new. Right now I'm doing some studies of Joshua Reynolds and Eugene Delacroix's pieces. Boy, there is a lot of knowledge in these .

    Batonick: Thanks man!! and yeah pretty hard to get out of the comfort zones. Oooh I'll give doing studies of their artworks a try then. I want alllll that knowledge

    Sorry I don't really like to post twice in the same day, but I forgot about important stuff and I'll be kind of busy during the week as always. Anyways the important stuff is....I joined a life figure drawing group! I pay each session and etc. OH MAN IS IT FUN. I highly recommend it!!!!!! It's my first drawing figures from life and it's so wonderful. So here's some stuff I did there.

    I also bought a bunch of charcoal. It's a wonderful tool, just need to get the hang of it more

    And some unref stuff I did earlier this morning, realized the first has the same exact color scheme as the previous post. Which was completely uninentional, so then I tried to do a different color scheme on the second. -sigh- anatomy needs so much work
