Like the last update, your improving fast. And life is always best. I like that christmas tree Looks like you have a big house
I like that lamp too, but, how about some shading to it? Anyway, keep it up!
Good last update styler. Christmas is no excuse not to draw, so props to you for doing it. I know itīs been said to you before, but I recommend that you slow down sometimes. Not always, but if youīre doing things like for example your ear studies: take your time, if youīve got an anatomy book (and if you havenīt got one, buy one; Now!), look up the individual parts of the ear. Then, take a look in the mirror and observe your own ear. And then, draw it carefully. Afterwards, you can do a page of ears in 15 minutes, Iīm shure itīll pay off.
I like the hands from your last post.
Keep it up.
taxman: I got bridgeman's complete guide to drawing from life for christmas...i'll do some studies from it. I'll slow down more...thanks!
I see your getting better from the last time that i check your sketchbook. As you draw something try to visualize the object as a simple shape. For example when you look at the ear it is shaped like the letter C. Keep up the good work.

Great studies, I recognize Bridgeman in there. Just keep at them and those proportions will get better. Look at the image you are drawing as a whole, maybe sit up and look at it from a distance, get those proportions right. Keep it up!
i'll keep at it thanks!
Hey Styler, Sorry haven't been posting anything lately but great improvement in that last drawing. One advice. When studying an object, unless you are studying it's gesture, be more aware of the movement of your lines. As many have previously said, don't rush it.

im also sorry i havnt been posting in a while. Post #154, #154 and #157 show great contol with the pencil, your improving! That bridgman study looks like you took your time, and can you see, if you take your time your drawings get better. Thats why i have been going on at you for all this time, next time dont take it the wrong way... . Your self portrait also looks good, but i think you might of rushed the neck and below.
Hope you had a Merry Christmas as well!
threeEyesworm: thanks, ok i will pay more attention to lines, and go slower.
Qxzi: your right, the neck is a little rough. Thanks
Cool styler, I like the studies of 279.jpg
I think you are placing the features on the faces way better now.
Are you doing the excersizes from the loomis books? If not, you should really check 'em out, its great material.
besides your lines and your anatomical knowledge, you should also practise shading. especilally on your last hands you can see that you totally rushed the shading and thats also why it's that dark i think... Maybe you should watch other peoples pencil-shading... and maybe copy one or two works? or just try to get the principles (follow the form, ... )
My current areas of interest: Linework, Composition, Visual Library
madplanet: i'll try to use more darks, you are right, i've been told most of my stuff is pretty much a dull overall grey.
brokenspirit: yea I should get back to those sometime, his stuff is amazing.
embee: k, I will try to improve my shading.
thanks for the feedback
some stuff for school I did for school that I still went too fast on.
couple of experiments
Damn Styler, you been updating so much and I haven't even notice!
I do notice improvement though. Your lines are becoming much more formulated and structured. Keep working on that.
I like January 14th one with the two guys in suits and the first one of Janurary 13th. I think you should keep working on that one. It has potential.
Keep going and don't slack off like the rest of us!

Your persistance is remarkable. You're definately a role model for someone like myself lol. I have severe problems motivating myself. If only I had your drive. It was a treat scrolling through your sketchbook and seeing your skills evolve.
threeeysworm: I might come back to it thanks
twighlightmaiden: thanks, I'm tryin. Yea, sometimes I just make myself draw even when I don't feel like it and then i'll slowly gain modivation and get more into it. Just try it.
some attempts at drawing from imagination...not very pretty, but they were fun
