I didn't do too much this time around. I'm having a quarter-life crisis, as far as art is concerned. My style is dying.
Anyhoo, to get on track with preventing that from completely happening, here and there I work. I haven't done nearly enough.
Rocks in my yard.
This was nifty, playing with "wet edges", drawing with a Difference brush in Photoshop.
Swift doodle. But I'd been so inspired by WhisperWM's character, part of the name is "Red Poem". She's cool!
Some shading practice. I tried drawing Wrath (Full Metal Alchemist) in a more realistic sense. It was fun, but frustrating!
I was blocking in colour. It looked much worse than this. Layered the skin, face, eyes, hair and "top" in different levels.
I had fun with the hair! I LOVE doing hair!
The face looked too pale in contrast for my liking. I needed to change the shape and colour of his lips a bit, too.
Oh yeah, needed to work on the eye. The face was SO freakin' wide it wasn't right. Now, I fixed up both, and I made him a different nose because that other one made him look like some crazy woodpecker man.
I was trying to figure out what I did here. Yes! I put on some eye shine, and worked in a little better background. I also fixed up his shoulder a bit. Mind you, that face looks horrid! He's scary, but I could've done better. Haven't practiced in so long. Probably needed to add more shadow on HIS right...Jaw/chin.

These new digitals are looking nice. I'd look into the contrasts in the hair, it seems a bit flattened out, colour-wise.
Otherwise, keep on rocking!

Thank you, Chewster! Though I wanted the colours flat to make the hair dirty looking, I'll take your advice about the contrast, because I suck where contrast and lighting is concerned. Heh! I still don't really know how to cast light on solids of any sort. XD

Thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. Yours is quite nice - I like the variety of different subjects: rocks, scissors, etc. Now you just need some paper in there and you can play a game. I also like the fact that you post progress on images so you can see how they improve.
Good luck with finding time to practice. My only practice time really is during lunch, but I usually get some drawing in then. Oh, and I like the little girl - do you have a finished (or as finished as you're going to make it) version that's different from the last one you posted?

Scott: Ha ha! Remind me to draw paper one of these days! XD And you're welcome about the SB! It's nice seeing a bunch of different ones!
Thanks for the comments! I greatly appreciate them! I'm glad you like the progress pictures. I think it'll do me well to see them here, so I can be optimistic that I'm TRYING. Ha!
As for the little girl, I've only been doing little touches, that's why her latest progress is hardly noticeable. But, after my break from her, I'll continue possibly as far as adding slight details surrounding her face. Oh yes...and I probably should add the actual freckles she has! Just so hard working with them!

I didn't know what to do with myself this week. I just did a bunch of sketching and one self-portrait (holding up my little board thing to draw on is pretty hard!). Then, tonight I worked on faces, learning from one of the Loomis books. I have so much work to do with faces!! Uggggh, how will my patience withstand it?? >_< But at least I got some practice done!
