Thanks, Plissken! I'd like to get used to human/organic forms then move to environments and buildings, with some mixing inbetween. Maybe I'll start doing stuff from imagination instead of all from photo reference/still life - I feel my creativity can really use some work, but I think if I keep drawing from life I'll build a bigger "mental image library." Also going to start doing more speedpainting to simplify things more. My brush strokes are still uncertain and go back and forth too much like my recordings might show.
Here's a few more sketches. The first face below is from imagination - and what a relief it turned out decent! The last is a speedpaint of 40 min. Also getting interested in Anime so some time was spent shopping lol. But I'd like to explore anime-style someday, the least to learn to simplify and simplify colors and lines.

The road never ends, but you must keep walking.
