    Welcome... Welcome

    Hello, I will say that, while I cant afford acrylics, from a time or money stand point I did enjoy working with them is school... This is what I learned. When doing people you seem to have a nice grasp of the human figure, while a little distorted, try to use a mixture of colors, one as a base a darker tone, and a lighter that can be used for your highlights for the peice. This can be very helpful if you have a simple subject or little time. The more time the more improvement you will see but from what you do have concentrate not neccisarily super fine detail (or my spelling ) but getting some basic forms down. I will try to keep up with your sketch book and till then enjoy I will try to keep checking the sketch book to see how you do.

    Hmm, I like your art. On the quick anatomy sketches, I'd say don't take more than a minute per. Try to get the basic form down in a few quick strokes. Atleast, that's how I see it. Form is important in gestures.

    However, I really do advise doing some semi-detailed anatomy sketches that takea round 30 minutes.

    Keep it up, I say.
