Syrogen / elboy / MrFrost :
Thanks alot guys for the comments. I've got to keep practicing, hopefully I'll get better. I'll try to post some more stuff soon.
Time for an update, I've been mostly trying to do heads for the last few days. I'll try and do something new for the next update.
Oh my gosh! So many heads! You have alot of patience to draw them so many times! The face in your final painting is much nicer than the faces mingled with your heads. The page with noses - remember that with the head so nicely in 3-d the nose is also a 3-d shape with width and dimension. It may help to study it's attatchment as a wedge shape with a bottom plane instead of just a 2-d triangle.
Thanks alot for comment, I'll watch out for the thing about the noses.
Thanks man, I'll try keeping it up.
On with the update, been busy so not alot of sketches have been done. But I have managed to do a few.
I'm no to happy with this one as his face is skewed and it didn't pass the "flip test" but I coloured it in anyway.
I posted these two in another thread, but since this is my sketchbook, there are no rules so I'll post here as well.
Relatively happy with this one BUT it did not come out like the reference pic.
No time for Mr sketch book this week. I'll try to do some more stuff soon. Ok well I've decided to do at least one Master Copy per week, in the hope that I'll get better and hopefully learn something.
That's all for now.
Master Copy Number 1: John Singer Sargent's Mary Turner Austin
good work man..
real nice improvement
Thanks alot man! But i still need to work alot harder.
Thanks, i hope i'm improving.
Master Copy Number 2: Ingres's Hygin Edmond Ludovic Auguste Cave
Master Copy Number 2: Sargent John Singer - Mrs Charles E. Inches
wow dude, great studies. the only thing I'd say is keep advancing the difficulty of the exercises. keep adding a little bit until you get to your goal. awesome volume though, truely inspirational.
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
Thanks a lot for the comment! True, I will try and add more variety in the sketchbook as I have been mostly doing head sketches. So stay tuned and I'll try and do some different stuff for the next update.
Some more head stuff, for now:
Master Copy Number 4: Franz Xavier Winterhalter's Study of a Girl in Profile
Master Copy Number 5: Ingres - Jupiter and Thetis
You have great amount of determination. It might just be me but some of those heads eye proportions look off. The eyes are one eye size apart, and half an eye to the side of the head. Very inspiring work here.
heh just come to say that after seeying your stuff i understood what styding dhould be ...so i say keep up and push it every day and check out my daily too i can use some crits
Thanks for the crit! I'll watch out for that next time.
Thanks for your comment about my studies. I checked out your sketchbook like you said and will be coming back regularly to see how you progress.
Thanks for the comment, much appreciated. I'll keep trying and hopefully get there in the end.

Master Copy Number 6: John Singer Sargent's Douglas Vickers
