    ...

    ..but its a very good new start

    \Pencil skills have improved, digital skills have improved, good job.BUT, try and vary your designs, what you actually draw.Remeber, you have to practice drawing ANYTHING, so show us stuff of all kinds.

    keep 'em coming, i'm watching

    ciao

    Great work Dile!,
    I like the work most that you have now started, the sargent studies and the lady.
    The 2nd picture here is nice too, the original design stands out on this thread.
    Keep it up, i look forward to seeing more from ca's most active dude!.

    I'd like to see more pencil work too. the first pencil work was very promising, so more of that would be great.

    hey dile!
    I already told you about the first one, I really dont like the colours, but it does have an ambient feel about it.
    On the bottom sketches. It feels like your covering up your abilities to draw features with dark blobs. While it can look good, seriously learn what each feature looks like.
    THE BEST learning tool areself portraits, or portraits from life. I cannot stress that enough. Im seeing problems with the eyes, the nose, the mouth and the skull.
    On the biggest head on the left, 3 things bug me.
    His nose is far too big, and he doesnt have a nostril, and its an odd shape.
    His mouth is weird, usually the bottom lip is larger than the top.
    His eyes are crooked, lightly put in a guide line so you dont get it skewed.
    His eyes are too high up his head, or he has a small forehead.
    His chin is far too short, and seems oddly square.


    I hope you understand the importance of master studies..
    Basically A master study is a great method to learn about some of the most fantastic, amazingly talented atrists of way back.
    4 things that are learnt from:
    Colour- not using browns for dark patches of skin, using purple instead.
    Light: Understanding how the artists incorporated light into the picture, how it was effective.
    Composition:WHere subject matter is on the page, etc etc..
    Brushwork. Look closely how the artist painted. What direction was the brush going?
    For now, I think you should stick to master copies, instead of learning from the pros of today(with the exception of anatomists such as mentler, who have something to say, and show).
    Im not saying you shouldnt copy any ones work to learn, just seems a bit fishy to me, maybe you should ask a pro or something
    Keep chugging away mate, look forward to seeing pencils.

    hey Dile, great stuff!
    for crits - study proportions through lifedrawing, make notes on the side and apply on your mind based work. Allso very important to keep those portrait studies up, try starting do self portratis. That's my five cents at the moment

    mkt bra skit, fortsätt posta!

    Sure, but know the idea you are studying. For example, studying Mullin's strokes would be to study his ideas on the variation inherent in nature. For fundamentals it is good to refer to their influences/teachers as well, just to see where they were coming from.

    Keep up the good work!

    Meatsworthy has hit the nail on your head mate. Lots of stuff to be learnt from any master. There is shitloads you can learn from masters, apart from the basic elements of composition (line, colour, texture, shape, form, contrast, balance etc. ) A sense of anatomy, structure and composition is also acquired, as is my favourite, opposing curves.

    It doesn't matter which master you study, as long of course as you know you are learning something. The important thing is to enjoy the study, else you won't learn.

    Have fun

    - d.

I'm really happy your experimenting with learning new techniques, the tablet has opened up endless possiblities. Keep up the good work Dile. Can't wait to see more. later bro.
