    Yes, you do. However, take a look at the central figure here: the line through his shoulders should go through the right vanishing point?

    Heeeyy, how'd I miss this beaut? Great studies here. Looks like your figures are getting stronger-- And I'd say your perspective's right there! Keep up the great work.

    Nice, we started more or less the same time. Thanks for your invaluable tips

    Someone gave me a great advice and thought i'd share, which is to keep 2 sketchbooks, one for observational drawings, and one from imagination. P.S I'd love to see some still life, I think it would benefit our rendering, value studies greatly

    Let's work hard together!

    Hi WenDu,
    Luna here! First, you profile is soooooooooo Cute!!!!!! ^_^ <3
    ( And... 您怎知道我的中文名叫 月亮 的? @o@ 難道我們倆認識? 嘿嘿o(∩_∩)o )

    By checking all your artwork here, some of them are pretty nice! ^_^
    But still need to practice more I think, I think you have a nice sense of beauty by watching your art. I suggest you try follow some of the artbooks if you like, I think you already checked the C Sir's thread I suggested....

    The same suggestion, there a few books are awesome!(*^__^*):
    Andrew Loomis - Drawing the Head and Hands
    Andrew Loomis - Figure Drawing for all it's Worth

    I really think they are the right books for follow by, take a few months later you will found out you improve by this!
    Keep working hard!! More study! xxx

    @月亮, 月亮在你的签名里啊.XD
    Thank you, yeah I've been reading and drawing the past month after getting Andrew Loomis' books, I think that's why my figures are becoming better and better.

    I want to improve in composition, lighting as well as Figure/anatomy.

    谢谢指教哦!

    I think I'm settled on this idea for my take on the Monkey God.

    Here's a rough sketch.
