Hey, Monika! Your drawings are looking better and better.
I like this last one very much. Maybe the darks on clothes
should be even darker. I have the feeling that your monitor
is showing you colors darker as they really are and that
you are afraid to make things darker. And be sure to
draw things as you see them (it's a problem that sometimes
we learn something and repeat that on our pictures mechanically
though things are looking different).
i realised that i draw only women... i guess thats because its much easier Sooo today i decided to take the bull by the horns and finally draw some guy it was a real challenge for me... and i think it came out quite well. i'm curious what do you think about my very first male
Today i found the oldest digital paintings i have ever drawn. I was really proud of them 2 or 3 years ago... now i cant look at them! they are so ugly! I drew them with a mouse.
ps. and i'm still sick! :/
ps2. drawing every day is great!
Hi! Looks nice especially the upper part
of the body. Might be good to show some
action, some happening around her
or with her, with the light in her hand...
Now it almost seems like the camera
caught her unprepared
Keep up the good work,

I like what you have done with the hair. It leaves a cool effect.
When you darkened the womans clothes, it was soo much better! Try getting even darker darks, and even lighter lights. Try get a full range of tone!
Keep it up, you are doing pretty well!
If you have time, have a flick through my sketchbook and leave me some hints
Hey, Monna, don't give up It looks pretty nice.
I see that you put a lot of time into the eyes
of the faces.
About the colors - I think that in the last one
you used only the warm colors, in the shadows
they should be colder, more blueish. The hair
in the one before looks like threads or spaghetti.
They should be more in groups and go from wide
to thin. That one also looks all blue so try to
use warm and cold colors more and be sure to
use very dark too. Under her right arm she is too
brigt - it should be the darkest ...
If you would like to improve on other fields too,
doo some more hands, some quick figure sketches -
it will help you find some more alive and interesting poses ...
Keep it up! Good luck,

Hey. I haven't been here for long time. Some nice progress going on here. The red haired girl looks like you made a big leap forward. It's more loose and skintones look great.
Some of your characters don't have consistent light throughout the whole body. You're gonna work it out somehow so just keep it up.
Your Loomis studies are great - the poses
and the body parts. If you find it to be fun,
do even more. I draw because I have fun
with it, too.
The girls hair is nice, it's shorter, so it's
a bit hard to compare, but it sure doesn't
look like spaghetti. I am a bit unsure about
her hands though. I think they're a bit too
short and to make them exactly in the same
pose, just in a mirror, isn't a good and convincing
idea. It's usually better to make fingers, hands,
legs ... in at least a little different pose.
