Renier van der West: Thanks, I use pencil, ink, watercolor, and color pencil. Actually it's hard to tell because I grayscaled and tinted the image to save image size. Here's one of the pages without the change, sorry about that.

Those anatomy studies on tinted paper are really nice - more of those please!
Also, it seems you have a problem drawing lips? CAn't really tell, a lot of your drawings here are quite small, but you might wanna look into that.
Great work though, keep it up!
As the pattern gets more intricate and subtle being swept along is no longer enough.
bunny: I see what you mean by the lips. On bunch of the smaller heads I use three simple dashes. I'm browsing some bigger of protraits and it doesn't have a very define plains.(I'll post those soon) I think you are right, I'm due for an upgrade. Thanks!
oma: Happy New Year!!!
designboot: Thank You
GeeWesley: Thx, I'll keep posting.
Here is another study.
I use to know someone who was close to me, that I considered a mentor during the time. She went to a nice art school and would tell me all the fantastic things she learned or famous people who taught there. We use to draw together for fun when we were younger, but things were different after she went to that school. Soon I wasn't considered fit enough to draw with her because I never meet the famous people she mentioned or used expensive equipment as she did. Teasing became her new pastime with me. I became greatly discouraged and almost believed her words that I was wasting my time.
But day one it got really old. I realized that just because a person wants you to be unhappy, doesn't mean you have to be. So everytime she teased me, I would nod my head and walk away to silently draw pages of studies. The more I drew the more she mouthed off. The more she mouthed off the more I needed to draw. Eventually she had nothing more to say. I drew for myself and for other dedicated people's projects who played nice.
