    Paintings for Self Improvement: Updated 11/24/08

    Been a long while since I updated, but I'm choosing to leave the beginning work, because I feel its important to see where somebody comes from, for both motivation, and a reminder of the lessons learned.

    So there are some real "treasures to follow."

    Hey lawv, nice start. Definitely showing some improvement already. The first sketches were sorta rough, but things are really start to shape up in the latest posts. Keep up those paints dude. Got all summer to do it!

    your anatomy studies are great..
    but i dont see you transfering that knowledge to anything else...
    though your portraits are pretty good(could use a little more practice) try some more bodies in full.
    nice start!

    alesoun - thank you for your kind variety or words!

    sirio brozzi -thank you, and i agree about the roughness, I started this thread to push myself, and hopefully see improvement...but being that I know you personally, your words are empty as water on bird poop! thanx.

    stonercurly - glad you liked those, and,..you hit it on the button. I am not transferring that knowledge right away to my drawings...I need to work on that. Thanx for the advice.
