    Are you studying from any books or tutorials?
    When doing the google streetview studies my goal is to do it with less lines every time. The anatomy studies too. I'm very perfectionistic so it's hard but I do try to draw more loosely. I am not studying from any books or tutorials at the moment, but I have done in the past. I believe my perspective is good, not perfect, same for my lighting, but if there are specific mistakes you can point out I would love to hear it.

    Drew these during the long flight from Vegas to Amsterdam. Kind of ashamed of how lazy and bored I was when drawing that generic skull, but I like the first two. Keep the critiques coming, thanks guys!

    Scene I saw on the side of the highway two days ago. Drew it from memory so some things are different. I thought it looked interesting, like an apocalypse survivor's shack or something.

    Santa Barbara harbor, drawn from a picture I took December 2014. Quite happy with this one. I tried some things I saw in youtube videos, changed the lighting and tried to bring out the building more than the surrounding stuff.

    Very quick sketch of a scene from the amazing movie Dunkirk, after having watched it this afternoon. Beautiful movie, go watch it.

    I think the hands are not quite fitting the picture. With a big bulky butcher like that, more broad heavy hands would fit nicely.

    Living in Italy now! Hopefully this will be the start to a successful university career. Here are the first two sketches of Pisa.

    Your environment drawings are amazing! A bit more work on perspective wouldn't hurt but it's not bad by any means. Have you ever thought throwing some color on those?

    Your drawings are good and it's great that you're drawing so much from life but you are missing out on doing actual studies and studying theories behind drawing. Learning the rules of perspective and applying them to your drawings would help them improve a great deal. You are getting better but I think you would improve way more if you studied perspective now for a while and then went back to doing these drawings.

    Thank you! I have, and I always like the look of watercolor or gouache, but I am content and choose to spend my time and money on other things than learning watercolor painting and buying the supplies for it. I also enjoy how simple and portable a simple pencil/pen and a sketchbook are.

    Thanks for the feedback. Is there any specific mistake you see me making with perspective, so I have somewhere to start improving?

    Vanishing points, it's clear that you know the theory but you haven't applied it enough with the lines so your brain is more used to it. For instance the first drawing in post #138 has a lot of small angle mistakes which overall makes it look a little wonky. For things such as the person in post #132 the perspective of the table doesn't match the perspective of the person. His feet also line up in front of the supports of the table, so his feet are closer to us than the table thing (I don't know the word for it at the moment ) which is impossible. But your perspective knowledge seems pretty decent, just practicing it on boxes and then doing more complex perspective drawings such as mirroring curved lines etc will really train your eye to see reality more accurately.

    First completed drawing in my Toy Story limited edition Moleskine, and first time trying out shading with ink. Got inspired to try painting with ink by Minnie Small's Inktober videos on youtube

    "Porta Sancta", door on the side of the Duomo here in Pisa. Not sure if I like it with the ink shading, but it also needs texture. I'd have to go back to see what kind of texture the stones had though. Otherwise content with it. Made a rough quick sketch in the field then cleaned it up, including the perspective lines, at home, finished with fineliners and ink shading.
