    Your sketchbook is wonderful.
    I would like to see a recording of these stock studies. Loved them.

    robertyo - Thanks, but the process of making these is far too chaotic and random to be fit for recording, plus I don't wanna get in trouble for utilizing some of renerences.

    Hello...

    you have some good samples of studies and paintings... but there are no samples of refining the works.

    Best regards and keep going

    Oh, so you mean like original pieces? I just haven't been able to make any for quite some time now. Its probably because of my awful visiual library but I just get motivated, make a new canvas, ready it up and... that's about it, I don't really have any ideas and even when I think I have something, it ussualy leads to nothing. I used to think I have a good imagination, until I've started to actually try and paint what I see in it.x)

    Really lovely work in here - much respect.

    To answer your question on how to practice and learn, the real secret is no secret at all: application. Apply what you learn, whether it's skin tones, values, shapes, line, design etc. The best way to do this is to work constructively, e.g. from imagination and without reference. You can go half way and use reference but design some of the details yourself, but the key is to avoid straight copying. I've found that my work has improved quickly (sadly, not painlessly) by doing this consistently and with dedication. It's difficult but very much worth it!

    Dave MacLeod - Well that's not the problem, my point is that when I try and do proper studies, my mind immediately goes into "brainless copying" mode and the issue is there is nothing to aplly, because I don't feel I've learned anything.;/

    Here's just a random value, dragon practice.

    I love how you paint faces! I'm not an expert in anatomy but I would soften the tones on how you paint muscles, they seem too defined especially for your female characters. I would focus more on black and white studies, maybe try doing more master studies and see how they paint skin? You could turn them in greyscale and do some studies. Just a thought! Keep up the great work and I hope you stay motivated!

    Inkognito - Thanks, tho I don't believe there's anythign to envy here.

    Tomasz-Mro - thanks, I just really love the hard edged strongly defined style of portraits like here - https://www.artstation.com/artwork/WVLqX and that's been kinda pushing me that way, tho I've yet to figure out how much can be used while keeping the character femine. I will probably start doing some master studies, never done one before, mayby that will help some, and yeah the anatomy is still very much off.^^'
