    Poem's Sketchbook

    The worst artistic mistake I've made was failing to look for feedback. Therefore, all forms of feedback are accepted and appreciated.

    This last one was a small revelation for me--I don't draw profiles very often, and when I do I generally tried to fit the face on a single curved line. I would eventually work them into looking passable, but because I didn't acknowledge the presence of a protruding muzzle, it took me far longer than it needed to. So profiles should be much easier from now on.

    This one's from yesterday, and I forgot to upload it. Focused on her face and mostly ignored the reference's, but it didn't turn out the way I wanted.

    Tried for a head from imagination and a pose at a slightly different angle from the reference. Eventually determined that this, plus yesterday's attempt, meant that I should spend some time working on heads.

    Working on heads turned into this. I tried to copy the girl's face according to the planes. I've had far more accurate results just copying without studying. But I probably learned more this way. As a bonus, I understand lips better.

    Will do more head/plane studies later today.

    Hey Poem!
    It's really good seeing you going into some structural studies! I can image your work improving a lot if you keep going that path, it's a really beneficial thing.
    Another thing I notice and I'd recommend to you: be more mindful of both your lines and your brushstrokes, whether you draw or paint. Both has a tendency to look messy without doing too much in terms of enhancing your forms. Also maybe use some more hard brushes? There's a lot of softness that doesn't do your work too well. Many of us start out similar, so that might be a process, but the change comes in time

    very good start to a sketchbook and exactly the direction id recommend to study. have your read about the reilly abstraction? if not DO IT! it always puzzles me how something as elemental and openly accessible gets as little recognition.. guess thats how the internet works these days. try it, for me it made everything somewhat fall into place.

    JuliaMetzger,
    I made an effort to be at least a little more considerate of my line economy in today's sketches. Only colored one thing (and used a single hard brush for it, with interesting results), but I'll keep an eye on my brush economy in the future as well.

    Will also find myself a harder brush for painting.

    sone_one,
    I'd heard the name before, but haven't been using a proper head construction method for years. Went out and watched a few videos on Reilly abstraction and followed along for a few pictures (first image), then tried it without a guide (second image). I didn't manage to construct a face from scratch using this method, but I did turn off the reference and try to reconstruct the girl's face just using the rhythm lines. It was closer than I anticipated, but still didn't look much like her.

    Will try and build a head from scratch tomorrow.
