    The anatomy of the face needs some work. Also your sketches are very messy and you are using "chicken scratch" to define form....drop lines in confidence. The light logic doesn't make sense either, one reason for this is that your darkest lights are the same value as your lightest darks.

    thank you very much for your comments!

    demented: thanks, i'll try keeping this thread updated

    smitherines: i thought quite a lot about what you said, i don't totally understand what you want to tell me with the values of the lightest darks and darkest lights, i thought they should be the same value, logically...

    anyways, here is a new one. i tried to work on my lines. tear it appart! (sorry for the flash)

    nice man, good start , the thing about the values is that you divide things into light and dark sides, in the light side nothing should be as dark as in the dark side, and in the dark side nothing should be as light as the light side. Hope thats not too confusing

    Definitely a nice start man. Again, should clean up your lines and do some value studies, but in general, the pieces show a good start in observational skills. Keep it up.

    thanks archipelago, i think i got it
    thank you Sirio_Brozzi for your comment.

    well, i don't get to post quite often, i have to apologize. the main reason for that is probably the enormous respect i got for all the greaaaat artists here, actually i browse the posts at conceptart.org every single day... i got a lot of sketchbook pages which aren't worth showing, but i have to begin SOMEWHERE.

    they are all really quickly done, no clean line or such.

    the second one is a quick ref study

    hey ya.

    thats a selfportrait i did today, not the regular type of selfportrait you would expect i think . actually im the opposite of a hip hop-style guy, and because of that it was especially fun to paint. hope you like it.

    When you're sketching, try making a more detailed line drawing to map out the planes. That way when you're shading, you are doing more than just quickly drawing over places in shadow. Oh yeah and we have the same speakers.
