watch out when you do extreme perspective. It can only be possible if the camera is up close since objects converge less the farther they get from the camera. Keep this in mind and you will avoid the extreme proportion instead of perspective problem.
Edit: Post something for today! You've missed a few days already.

like that portrait, nicely shaded. your figures are taking some new form. i like the lines im seeing on the edges. keep it up, ur becoming more descriptive with fewer longer lines and strokes. good stuff my friend.
You really are improving, I can see you getting better just over this page. Your latest portrait looks good, it looks real. The advice I got for you is do more life drawing. Try to find a figure drawing class and draw some nude people. I think your anatomy would really benefit from it.
good job on the first image there! Too bad you didnt do it on the longways of the paper. Would have fit nicely!.
Try to do more contruction lines very lightly to lay everything down first. Look at some of my sketches they look like crazy scribbles but i understand them hehe. Then go for the render. If you keep going back and forth you'll just end up spending unessicary time.
And lets see some what you can do with your current knowledge of anatomy and make a character design....keep it fun!
Oh yeah i forgot to say......Try this and see how it goes. I see that your pencils have very short strokes, i can even see this in your lines. Make some quick gestures with very long commited pencil strokes. Do this everyday
Really like the face and the boobs on this one. Well rendered. I think what you need to worry about right now is linequality. Try to draw more with your arm and less with your wrist when you're doing the initial sketch. Do long fast lines and make them right from the start. 10 marks for the contoure instead of 100. It's very hard. But try it.
Here's some from today, the second one was pathetic...i wasn't really paying attention and it became more like doodle..probably because i was at school...And the head is tilted on the first one its skewed i should say.
I like your elven warrior chick (#231, the second one), nice detail in her clothing. Proportions seem correct, anatomy as well, but one little remark though : I can't quite place it, but something about her right elbow looks 'wrong'.
Also, her left hand (the fist) may be a little too big for a female, but that's a detail...
Maybe try to think about balancing your figures so they don't look like they're about to fall over? This one looks good, she looks balanced. This one looks less good, she looks like she's about to fall over. Loomis has a chapter on this in his book Figure Drawing for All it's Worth. Check it out.
if you can and theres a mirror nearby, try doing the pose w/o straining yourself and take note of how the limbs are to avoid any unbalanced figures. I notice your ladies' legs are on the short side too. Try to keep this in mind when drawing women: high waist, wide hips, long legs. Keep it up, guy. You haven't update in 6 days!
