I typically paint from scratch. I think overpaints wouldn't really help me learn anything, I've got to actually start things from the ground up. Plus that's more fun and interesting for me to do. Maybe I'm not understanding though on that shadow bit. My monitor that I work off of, renders my darks fairly dark, but even still that first color speedpaint I did of the woman I put some lighter accents in her hair to break up the black. Granted it's not everywhere in the hair, just the top and near her face.
Thanks! I noticed that too looking back on those sketches. Yet another thing to try and be careful of. hehe

Nice studies. Very good hands aswell. I can see the highlights in the hair, but if you look at some refs you'll see that hair has quite bright speculars, while in your case it are barely visible lines

Should have posted these as I went... Took a life drawing course over the past two months. =p It was an Atelier course for Beginner artists, but even though I've done figure classes before, it was a great refresher course for me. Once April hits, I plan on signing up for the Intermediate class.
The photo quality sucks though. Sorry that they are so dark.

Week 6 (cuz I was sick on week 5)
Damn I've got issues with legs getting scrunched up. So disproportioned from the main body.
2 min, 5 min, 10 min, and 20 min
Wish I could remember which one is which. Next time I'm remembering to jot that stuff down. O.o

Last class our model never showed up, so the instructor decided to do critiques instead. With the time left over we did some masters studies.
And thus concludes my figure drawing class. What I learned:
*Don't use graphite pencils on news print. It sucks.
*My figures get either Shrunken head syndrome or squished legs syndrome
*Pelvis and leg areas need to be studied more. Trouble spots for me.
*I obviously need more figure drawing practice.

Bridgeman Figure Studys in Pen
More figure work. This time these were from Bridgeman's figurative drawing book, plus trying to help make my lines more steady and secure when I make them. Good practice on helping me to slow down and really look at proportions and gauging things before I make a stroke on paper.
