    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.

    In some of the heads the top of the craniums are very big. Most noticeably in the woman in the 1st and 15th posts, it seems to happen as you develop your paintings. You should pay attention to the head proportions as you draw them.
    Love means never having to say "you're a special snowflake."

    Take a look at my sketchbook
    And my blog

    Yeah I'm usually shrink it once the drawing gets more developed; I should just get it right before I get deep into the drawing XD

    Thank you!

    I like how you rendered the clothing in your last portrait! Are you going to finish the Monkey God painting?

    @Dragning, I think my technical skills are a bit behind in terms of actually "finishing it" XD, but I will sometimes later.

    I sort of have a finished version

    我非常喜歡那張 杜靜秋 的色彩練習!!o(∩_∩)o 哈哈
    And 孫悟空 的想像畫也非常好,唯一的一個我的想法是,這個孫悟空長得好像不太像我想像中的孫悟空,有點女 性味道了.
    繼續加油!! 你的畫真的進步很快~!! ^^

    呣, 我画了女性的孫悟空! XD. 我一直都在画女性 .

    Today has been a horrible day in the office so far, server crash, laptop crash... all I got recovered from Photoshop was these 3 head studies I did while electricity in the office went down .

    Your baby looks adorable, but also like Dr. Evil and mischievious. I expect evil laughter any minute.



    But, more seriously, really awesome drawing, Wen! You're improving so much!
