    Good start but you need to refine your sketches more. I had the same problem: i tried to do it all with one pencil. Start sketching with a 2H, doing construction lines and shapes. Erase the faulty and unnecessary ones. Then use a softer pencil (HB) to draw the lines you really need. And when you start shading, use an even softer pencil, like 2B or so. It takes some time and some discipline, but it's the only way.

    Great update. The horse and anatomy sketches are great! More life studies (you mentioned you were taking more classes, so I'll wait to see that update) and you've got a brilliant sketch...improving alot

    Good to see arm studies, some of those have a good sense of movement happening. I chuckled a bit when I saw the crab claw thing happening. Don't despair at doing hands yet.

    Hands are tricky to get right and a lot people have trouble doing them, myself included.

    I'm not sure about bartovan's 2h recommendation, just making really light lines with a 2b works for me. I find 2h is too hard and sharp to draw with comfortably. I guess as I mentioned before it all comes down personal preference.

    Guitarjames - Thanks, i'll try that.

    Bartovan - Hmm, i had thought about that but i always figured it wasn't much different. I'll give it a try. Thanks.

    Saikin - Thanks very much!

    Cwn Annwn - Heh. I enjoyed doing that crab claw >.>... Thanks for the kind words, hands and faces are still my biggest concern.

    Not much to say. I didn't have access to a comp for 2 days, today was the first day of class. Fun and hard work! I have much more in my sketchbook but i'm taking pics with a camera so this is just newsprint stuff. Mostly in nupastel.

    Your anatomy has gotten a heck of a lot better than when you started. You already got the crit about your bright greens being way oversaturated in the landscape. In the beginning of this SB you have a lot of SP's. If you enjoy doing those, I'd reccomend spending a bit more time on one and really polishing it up. From some of the anatomy studies you've done lately, I bet you could crank out something pretty sweet.

    Finally. It took a while accessing this thread (I was constantly getting some php error) and some of the other ssg member's sketchbooks.
    You've had a great improvement since your first post. I like specially the last two studies, those done in charcoal and white chalk (pastel?) over a toned paper. Keep posting more of those.

    Blue Severin - Thanks. I had completely forgotten about those! When i get home maybe i'll try one.

    fedezz - Thanks. I'll see what i can do.

    MAJOR improvement! I am glad to see you come so far! Your life studies are your best so far and I know will become way better as you continue. Are you scanning or taking digipics? Maybe scan them if possible because of the brightness....sorta faint

    Saikin - Thanks. These are taken with a camera because i'm operating out of a hotel room ahora. And they're 18x24 so they wouldnt fit in a scanner anyway... But i usually fix brightness in PS which i dont have with me.

    Last day is tomorrow! I've learned a lot in this short period of time... makes me wish i were going to college next semester :/. More nupastel stuff. The portrait took up a large chunk of the day. Having fun ~
