Nice stuff over the past month. You're definitely making progress on your blocking in.
Watch your colours. Most of your colour work has a bit of a washed-out look. Two things to look for - first, warms and cools, the highlights and shadows on objects generally won't be the same temperature, and leaving them as such flattens things out a little, makes them look less natural. Second, shifts in saturation. Those last for studies all look very mid-range. While colour-picking is generally a bad way to study, don't be afraid to do so to check your work, just to see how far off you were. It helps to understand how you're misperceiving, and why.
@revidescent thanks so much for the advice i really appreciate it! i've tried out keeping an eye out for the warm and cool colours in this one but havingt a struggle grasping saturation, i will have to work on that some more!
this is all i got today....
great to see all of this hard work, keep this ammount of practice and you should see progress very nicely in a short amount of time, its nice to see such energetic brushwork but try and wath the proportions of things also i recommend some anatomy studies and geometrycal shapes practice! that is surely going to jumpkick start your progress
tried drawing carly rae...she looks like a horse LOL
also tweaked my stylus one notch in the "softer" direction so i can see the strokes better
looks like someone's falling out of their seat hahaha
Hey man, Its good to see you improving quite obviously is a relatively short amount of time. I actually quite like the vague sketchy drawings you have in post #6. I would say that you need to keep up trying to commit to getting your studies to a finished level. And possibly work more on the under drawing a bit more before you add the colour. Just to make sure all the proportions are correct. Don't forget to reverse your canvas to see any errors.
Keep it up brother.
hey man i like how your starting to use a little bit of texture in your paintings your improving a lot! keep it up!
been a while since i updated. been drawing in the sketchbook alot but i don't post those kuz im lazy. Going through bridgeman's "contructive anatomy" for the second time, tryna reproduce the muscles from memory and also reading loomis head and hands book. also started intro to digiital cocept art class at rydan! it's awesome, the instructors are awesome, this week we focused on movie stills
Those figure paintings on the 1st page are GREAT. Nice and lose, sketchy, but enough to hint at detail and form.
@heaven98 hey thanks so much i really appreciate that haha still working on gestures tho! thanks for stopping by!

@ecki thanks for the suggestion man! skulls are a great idea, i will have to get my hands on one somehow...haha. and yes more faces to come, i appreciate your suggestions!
hehe, I'm also thinking about buying a skull model, but right now I'm quite happy with this site: https://www.biodigitalhuman.com/home/
You can sign up for free and have a fully complete 3D turn and zoomable anatomy doll, where you can switch everything on and off. It's really nice!
You've got some good value studies going on here. I agree with ecki, watch out for the facial proportions and you'll start improving fast. Remember to flip your image while working to check for mistakes
I can def see the effort you're putting in. One thing I would watch out for are your edges when painting. Your edges when painting objects for the most part appear blurry. On post #64, I'm liking how the one with the elephant and the guy is looking. Your edges around the guy seems to be better. You should pay more attention to stuff like that.
