Sophia Myles as Beth Turner. No likeness whatsoever. It's one for the bin from the 'capture the reference' POV, but it's still a nice enough drawing I guess.
It might be a problem for you that you're doing celebrities. Because for many, when drawing celebrities you get too caught up in how they look rather than anything. So you kind of forget other things in the study. Although the likeness is important because there's a lot of structure to keep in mind but it can be a bit overwhelming.
They looks pretty good though, especially that recent one. Good job.
You should start doing some painted studies of faces as well as I see that as the bigger weakness. You rely a lot on line and whenever you lay in any tone, I can see that it's dragging behind. Even though you might want to go with the comic book style, the linework would still improve if you would spend some time with that too.
diggin your rendering on your pencils
keep on having fun learning and observing
o yeah followed you on tumblr =)
sketchbook updated October 6th
It's good to see more full figure studies and landscapes from you, they're showing you're stepping out of your comfort zone a bit more. I love the trees in the last post, hope you do some more colour works soon, they're lovely. :'D
OmertA: Thanks for the follow on tumblr. I added you as well, because your stuff is really great. Thanks for your feedback. I'll do my best
Naidy: Yes, just a tiny stepp out of my comfort zone. I will do more color. That's for sure. Or at least more digital
The first one is inspired by the Glee version of Coldplay's "Fix you".
And the second one is Mick Angel from the book "Angel of Vengeance" by Trevor O. Munson. I realise that his looks are similar to those of Mick St.John. Since the book inspired "Moonlight", I can't separate them.
I've been watching too much Hawaii Five-O lately. It's my first attempt to capture McGarrett. Sure there's more to come ;P
I'm well aware of the similarities with my Mick St.John/Mick Angel sketches. Portrayed by the same actor, but maybe I can do something about that.

Ah! I see you love them drawing memes too! I always want to do one then I get distracted.
And also, loaaads of pictures since I last checked by! The lips are showing good form and it's nice seeing you're drawing things that interest you /along/ with studies. Not much constructive to say, I'm afraid. Just keep up the good work, mate!
Your style of drawing faces is lovely - and your noses are fantastic! Really like your style when it comes to that tricky appendage!
