EDIT: Go to the last page, more recent stuff is there!
Hi guys I'm an english art student currently stuck at home trying to improve daily! I aim to keep this updated as much as possible. Attaching an example of sketches, studies of dawkins, rembrandt and a goldfish and some original stuff
Harsh crit on everything is strongly advised!

Agreed, looking good so far!
dig the goldfish xD
the rembrandt is very good interms of colour. Maybe some touches of cool grays in there somewhere. And play up the texture waaaaaaaaaay more.
Hive_minD: Thanks! I intend to update this a LOT, I don't do much else with my time but art nowadays
hunchback: Thanks, I will pick up the texture in future, wasn't sure how much of it to reproduce
Trying out mudbox, lots of fun - and a quick sketch, trying to work on my values and edges.

nice sketchbook so far
I'm really liking the goldfish
Denise H: Thanks, hopefully I will get the chance to do some more colourful experiments again soon
a WIP david study that has taken all day, hard work but rewarding! smudged graphite/pencil

Wow, loving this sketchbook so far! Especially the goldfish. /follows this~
merl: Thank you! Everyone seems to love the goldfish, I look forward to showing some creature designs with lots of colour eventually, got a lot of animal and colour theory studies to do before that though
stayed up to work on David, adding in better pencils and graphite to the mix.

Awesome start, I LOVE the goldfish. It's so pretty
Yup..great CA SB start.
No crits for now. You already have a good sense of proportion and form.
Just keep your work comin!!
Some Bridgman studies from earlier (love the guy) trying to memorise shapes and forms now, not just observe the figure as a whole
some basic loomis studies too, and trying to apply all this anatomy and some design points I read up about
Jephyr X: Thanks you, I do plenty of work and I hope to keep it up!

Hi guys, felt very motivated by janaschi's success story, having followed her thread since the start!
so anyway, worked all night on this life study, it's been hard to get the colours but I have learnt a lot so far

is that a trace?
okay been working hard at an environment - made some nice brushes along the way too!
plan to make the bridge more dynamic in the wind, add some dead trees for depth cues, paint in a castle and the background!
it is meant to be a witch's hut in the ramtop mountains of discworld, overlooking the town of lancre
Joe Brown: no! but I shall take that as a compliment
[ste]: thanks very much, I do very much intend to keep it up!
thanks for dropping by guys

edit: and a quick much study
alxcote: thanks and I shall! thank you for dropping by

Holy crap your color and values are so good.
Do you work at a massive resolution?
very nice SB, your room painting is really awesome
I thought it was just a photo at first but you def
did well. I like your digital studies as well.
Watch the proportions in your heads. It looks as if
you have chopped off the forehead.
Very good sketchbook so far, teh.meh! The life study of your room is splendid. Really great.
I would suggest doing more drawings from life of people. Bring your sketchbook to public place, a mall, the train... I find railway stations to be great for drawing people; people don't move around quite as much when waiting. I promise you it'll help tremendously in getting rid of the stiffness in your figures - as you were talking about in your drawing from imagination of the woman.
tried some painting of the faces and a couple of still lifes over breakfast
danlucas: thanks, the big room painting was easier than I expected so I am going to concentrate on more up-close colourful studies from now on, they seem more challenging. I will make sure to do some sketches on forehead structure it is something I have not attempted yet.
Benjaminba: thanks! It sounds like a great idea and I will try it next time I am out (though that is not often)
Thanks for visiting guys, I will visit your sketchbooks when I get a moment!

my day is full with drawing in my sketchbook from loomis and vilppu, and i'm keeping it loose and not bothering to render anything so there isn't much to update with at the moment.
Here are oekakis, i am trying to finish a self portrait and a still life per day.

You have a lot of improvement on just this one page! The still lifes are very nice. I'd suggest mixing up the types of light sources you're using for these though, so you can get the most out of them.
Anywhoo, really great work mate! I'm looking forward to seeing some more.
