Im trying to get better at drawing and painting, but particulary need to get a stronger understanding of anatomny. I struggle with digital painting and really want to get better at it.
If you have any spare time critiques would be awesome
Thank you for stopping by
I like your dedication to posting every day, and you have some really nice character designs there. My only reccomendation would be that all your sketches (even your most recent project) are very portrait-focused. Your portraits are great, but I'd like to see you challenge yourself with more full-body stuff, maybe doing multiple figures. Just because you seem pretty comfortable with doing portraits already, I feel like you would get more out of varying your practice.
Thanks Jacqs. You are completely right, i dont really do alot of figure drawing. And showing multiple on a page sounds like a great idea i'll aim to day that tomorrow and get it up for some critique.
A quick little character concept with some hand studies. Jim Lee inspired

Reason: the image was going off the screen and needed to be sized down
This is the third portrait in my challenge to do a portrait of every single facebook friend. No matter how award it gets whether its someone that I met at a party a year ago or ppl from primary school days, a portrait of them must be done.
Nice work man! I have a suggestion for your facebook portrait project though. Facebook photos dont tend to be the best drawing reference. You want good light and readable form in your ref, so i think you would learn a lot more if you did this same project but with good photos from online somewhere. Check out flickriver and just browse, youre bound to find portrait material worth copying. Keep it up!
Thanks Kielbasa, I agree the a lot of the photos that i have found(on facebook) are a bit flat whether its because of the flash that is used or its at a party, however i have committed to doing this and
hope to see it through even if some of the photos are lacking. Thanks for the suggestion though and hope to see you back.
Today i have a few studies of William Bouguereau's portrait of Gabrielle Cot. Which i cannot hope to match, and just a few studies from life
Another piece for my challenge to draw every facebook friend
Well its my Auntie's sister's wedding in a few weeks and i thought that i might do a full painting in photoshop for it. Early wip of the painting, critiques would be awesome, hope to get it pretty detailed depending on the time that i have available
