ok, this is a studie. I say that because i dont really see this as art. what i did is do an overlay of the foto. It was ment to studie the technique in PS (blend with eyedropper), see the different tint of the human skin, paint hair, cross hatch to show direction of hair and planes in face. i must say this was a VERY educational painting for me... and i like to watch at it because she's a good lookin chick

kevin lam: thanks for the reply! you are right about my faces. i have got myself 2 books of andrew loomis, "figure drawing for all its worth" and "dawings heads and hands". i hope to improve this way.
i have a lot of drawings gathered for the last half year. (since i started practicing drawing). so here is the first (and worst) part, i tried to sort it chronologically. first i have focused mainly on basic perspective and now i want to learn basic firgure drawing and head drawing. plz leave some comments about things i should focus on to improve.. thanks!!!
nice studies, keep doing them and it should soon show in your other works - for as an example the turtle boy is probably not meant to be limp, yet one leg looks shorter then the other and so on - once you get more knowledge under your wings you'll sore
Hey Jelle welcome to CA dude.
The portrait turned out really well but I already told you that.
However I haven't seen the works in your last post before and IMO it's looking really good, well done!
I have one tiny crit about the first sketch in your last post (which is my favorite although I'd love to see a further developed version of the second one ).
I think the figures in it are too big compaired to the surroundings, it would bemuch stronger if the people would be much smaller.
Maybe it's just my personal taste, still I think the figures look abnormally big next to the buildings.
Anyways good going man, keep it up and see your around!
dan liimatta: thanks for checking my sb! you are right, he looks a but limp doesnt he... maybe the turtle bit his leg! i have books about drawing figures, i am studying much out of these books (andrew loomis) so i hope it will improve.
Envisor: thanks man! i will upload some pencil caracters right now!!
Rudeone: hey rudy, thanks for the post man! i was aware of the problem, the guys were way to big, so here is the revised version. about the 2nd environment, i dont feel like finishing it in a state as the first one. i dont really like the whole thing, so i dont want to put any more time and effort in it. i will pass on with new fresh idea's. btw thanks for all andrew loomis books man, i think they will help me so much!! see you around dude!
now here are some more old sketches. some of them are expirements with chalk. cool medium but very hard not to get messy... it needs alot of practice.
