good studies, keep doing those. They will help you a lot with your imaginative work.
I suggest you start looking into head construction, if you haven't done this already. (Andrew Loomis has
a good approach.) Keep doing a lot of figure drawings. You obviously have access to models. Take advantage
of that as long as you have this opportunity :)

Thank you Matthew, I just checked Andrew Loomis his books and I'll try to do head and body construction :D

I just downloaded new brushes and I'm trying them out, still in sketch form.

Hi Alex, I made a quick over painting. The point I wanted to show/illustrate with the overpainting is to keep an eye out for the constructive form, volume and values of the portrait. Also try to use warmer/cooler tones instead of grey-er for the shadows. Btw sorry fo writing in English.

Hey CatBug. Your drawings could really improve with more studies of the skull and face anatomy. The portraits from life are crazygood!

I'm not sure I've got any other feedback to give than what's already said, but keep it up.
The pen and pencil stuff are looking nice. Also, the watercolour piece :)

Hello. Sorry that I've not uploaded in such a long time Q.Q! Now that I started school I'll try to be more active here, gonna upload so much stuff like studies, gesture drawings, paintings, digital drawings, illustrations and act. Gonna start with some gesture drawings! Some are from 1 to 2 minutes(you can guess who there are), and some that are 5 minutes too.

Hey Catbug, some good stuff here.
If there's one thing that stands out- from a critical point of view- you can see difference in the ones where you've used reference and the ones where you haven't. Obviously it takes forever to get a good understanding of anatomy, but the thing that's helped me most so far with anatomy from imagination is really drumming in the proportions of stuff and trying to look at loads of different angles of specific body parts
Anyway- keep it up! :)

Hi Alex!

I noticed that your local colors and local values were a bit off in your studies. Keep in mind that photos almost always has more contrast than in real life so be careful when using them to study. Also something I learned recently is that the value difference in an objects shadow/light side is surprisingly small, usually it's only around 20-30% change in the value.

Here's a quick over-paint to show the difference.

Hey man! Hope you have fun painting all these :D Just a qick tip:
Be aware, that you can turn form to all sides, not only top to bottom but also from left to right and vice versa. Paintings seem flat, when the form don´t turn to all sides.
