you are definitely showing some progress. the most important thing I think you could learn right now is structure. do lots more studies like the loomis ones, only on specific parts, and spend an equal amount of time drawing it from imagination (example: draw loomis heads for an hour, then draw heads from your imagination for an hour) drawing from imagination will show you where you still struggle, what you have to learn, what you dont know, then go back to the reference again and repeat. great job, man.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
nice to see you here pal.
i was 14 when i started drawing and look at me now when i'm 16.
just draw a lot, take a loot at others pics daily! and draw from ref.
you'll be good one day if you just want to
lol my favorite thing about this site is seeing improvements. You are doing very good in this. Might wanna point out a few things though. I know rendering and values are important but I'd recommend focusing on the subject your doing more closely. Go slow and smooth while your trying to observe something from refernce. Try to be as accurate as you can and after a while you will notice that your skills of drawing from life and from reference will increase tremendously. After you feel more comfortable with your form then you should start concentrating a little bit on values.
I'm subscribing this one, can see great improvement over the next few updates. Keep it up.
