    Hello there, welcome to CA. Those skull studies you've got going there are pretty nice, keep working with various reference material.
    As for form, which I myself tend to have some problems with, I believe the best way to work on that is to do some monochrome / black and white studies from reference and tests on how lighting affects a surface's values when pointed from different directions. Color studying should be taken on it's own merits entirely, and the knowledge of the two ought to be mixed together later on. Or, well, that's how I've understood.
    Take a gander through some sketchbooks in here, plenty of them include lots of helpful insight on values and form, as well as any subject that you may find relevant.

    I made an "illustration" for a story in my school, it was a work for language, I had to create a story, but the story was so bad I knew I wasn't going to get a good mark so I added this draw to the front page, I hope the teacher will give me a good mark u.U

    Hello! Nice skull studies, they show a lot of character. For your question about form, aside from what Turisas has mentioned, I found this video pretty helpful for understanding it more https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsdkhQis34U
    And regarding your last post, I do that too , I find that it does help lessen the blow of a bad grade sometimes

    Oh, I love this old trick, adding some art to a lazy essay to fool the teacher I think we all do this every once in a while. Your sketchbook is interesting so far. I'm not very good, but i'd also maybe suggest studying edges to add more form.

    Great torso and skull studies there! You're doing great, only tip I could give is after doing studies, try drawing from life and then adding your studies to that, to see how stuff works. Don't give up! I'm subscribing

    All I can say is excellent work on the value study. Most of the values of the original image appear to have their basic areas of influence drawn right on your image. Some minor adjustments, like the crack inside the orbit of the eye and the gap between the upper and lower jaw might need a bit of work though. The background elements are off regarding their perspective, and a few things on the skull seem off as well. I suggest using a grid of some sort on both, the reference and your drawing when placing all the objects to their correct locations. Once you've done that a few times, you'll be better at doing it without a grid helping you out. Practice makes perfect, and that too requires a lot of practice.
    Keep going!

    good start, Your study are good. You work the perspective with your cranium, this is an good excercise. I like really your study value. Tries for drawing practice traditional pencil. Because it is much more accurate than digital. In addition, you will be working with both . Your sketchbook is really good.

    This is officially the paint that i hate the most >;c
    I worked it for more than 5 hours and i couldn't´t get it right, the left part was my focus because it had shinny fancy railing, and it was cool, but after 3 or 4 hours i was losing the interest. When i moved in to the girl OMG, i was killing it more and more...
    Now i will paint more simply references and the cliché nude models because my anatomy is mehhh...
    *I tried using the grid that Turisas said and i helped a lot thank you ^^

    OK this is my actual state in anatomy, i need to improve a lot of things like hands, foots, arms, legs, everything, hands, etc...
    So i will be updating this draw until i get it right, i will study every anatomy part wrong and fix it until i get a decent anatomy.
    This is not suppose to be stylized.
    I know the posse is awkward and boring, but its just to show my anatomy problems.
    Any help is really appreciated it.
    I'll be focusing in my weakest points, i think that are the legs and the foots.

    Hey there, you're studying furiously which is great! The problem with post #20 isnt your rendering, which you have a knack for, its the structure. Without a good foundation to support a painting, the results will be disastrous, it's the anatomy that is way off. Keep working on the anatomy, You'll improve a ton!

    Good luck!

    awesome work! love the sketches in post 27 and and the colour on your most recent post, however I think the way you have rendered the nose in this one makes it look a little flat. Maybe study some noses and it'll make your noses a little more 3d.

    But yeh... keep up the good work!
