Hm, looking at those studies you're doing (specifically the Sargent master studies) and your personal work, I'm not sure how you plan on applying those studies to your own paintings. I think that the art community online can give the impression that you HAVE to be doing master studies to be really learning, but if you don't apply them immediately, it's easy to forget what you've learned. Are you trying to study Sargent's edgework? The planes of the human head? Or colors and skintones? Trying to remember all of them at once is overwhelming, so be targeted and specific when you do a master study.

In addition to that, if you enjoy painting anthropomorphic characters and animals, go ahead and study actual animals too (photos and paintings of them both)! Your ability to handle the anatomy of your fictional characters and paint things like paws and fur will only improve as a result. I'm afraid I'm totally inexperienced with drawing and painting animals so I can't offer much specific criticism, but some good resources I've seen would include Terryl Whitlatch's book Science of Creature Design and Aaron Blaise's videos.

OH WOW A PERSON! Yes I get everything you mean. Recently been thinking like what this is all for. What my goals are in doing these studies.
So far, my color and values improved quite a bit from doing this master studies and noticed some patterns in his use of colors. I tried to apply that in the girl painting above without any reference, and I think what i did was decent enough that I actually did learn something. While the others, yeh, i still need more repetition and studies to get them down.

I'll definitely check those people out and that book. Thanks a lot!

Hey man, why do you draw those anthropomorphic animals? Is it because of Characters like Bugs Bunny And Daffy Duck? I see a bunch of people doing that style so I've always been interested in why the prevalence, you know?

Anyway bro, I did a paint over for you. It's not super amazing but at least I'm trying to help, yeah?

It goes like this: The original, Yours, and then mine.

First things first. I did it in photoshop with a basic round, hard edge brush. Nothing super cereal. Anyways, bro. Focus on construction a bit. Your eyes were too big. Maybe it's a result of your style coming through or something, but whenever you Paint or draw, try to get the proportions right 'cause the painting won't matter at all. A turd with subsurface scattering is still a turd (lol). Not calling your work shite though, just sayin'.

Also keep in mind your edges and shadow/colour shapes. Please use Softer edges my friend. By simplifying the shapes of and on the form it's easier for us to compare and contrast where and what we got wrong.

Also, the 'whites' of our eyes aren't actually white. Because of distance, the atmosphere, how our eyes work, and lighting conditions, the sclera is closer to a flesh colour. Also, flesh is generally an orange type of colour with different colours mixed in. If you observe the world, most skintones are a variation of an orange hue, with notable exceptions of course. Even then, starting with an orange basis wouldn't hurt. ALso when darkening colours try to desaturate AND darken. Normally darkening a colour with actual paint also desaturates it. Photoshop doesn't actually work like that. So be careful of that

My diagnosis: do long studies with an emphasis on getting the form right. If value and edges doesn't make sense try doing master studies of artist's pencil drawings. Personally, I did a bunch of studies from henry Yan. I don't think that he did anything special, but it's the experience that comes with practice. It's just like elementary school. Practice and memorize first, and the understanding comes later.

One last thing: don't let style become a a crutch. Develop your drawing abilities and use it to enhance your style. Never, NEVER, choose a style because it easier or hides your abilities

Those anthro stuff are more of a form of genre of characters more than style than anything. I don't know. I find them super interesting when incorporated well in stories like Autumnlands, Blacksad, Redwall, or Mouseguard to name a more serious version than a cartoony one.

I have a problem sitting in long sessions working on anything. I tried to be more close and really detailed with the master study after that girl, which is the old guy with the top hat. That specific thing took around 2 1/2 - 3 hours so.. not much was done to really pay attention to detail and rendering. I'm going to continue tomorrow again and try to do better with my master studies.

I don't really use style as an excuse. Those random drawings are mostly what I do to keep me interested and drawing and not feel drawing mundane as it already is to me. I'm trying my best as I can so still prioritize studies, but I don't want to neglect the reason why I started drawing in the 1st place.

But still thanks a lot for the critique! You gave a lot of good points and I really haven't gotten much criticism lately. So I really appreciate it! c:

Oh yeah, I hear you man. Damn, I didn't mean to sound like a dick though sorry about that. I mean I really am just interested in the style of genre. Also, some of the masters did much, much longer paintings. I don't mean to sound crude, but long hours is how anything worthwhile is made.
