Thanks :) yeah, pastels are a great medium, the only issue is that it takes me forever to make a painting with them ;)

Some more figures and faces from imagination, faces are still off

Faces from the reference. I tried to be quick with them (10-15 minutes, I am quite slow overall), but maybe it wasnt a very good idea as they did not end up being too good

Figures and faces from imagination, still struggling with facial features - I think I need to simplify them more

I tried to draw and analyze some relationships in eyes, but I am not sure whether I learned anything useful :?

Faces from imagination, I feel like they are getting a little better, but still are rather ugly

Image

I also decided to start doing 5 min portrait drawings from reference. When learning figures Ive been doing a lot of this short sketches, so maybe this is the missing ingredient

Yes, I can only agree with Xiphor! Why not do some more art studies?

Thanks guys, if you like it you may wanna check out Jorge Jimenez, as he is the artist I was copying :) As for the art studies, I think I once heard someone (I think Synix, but not sure) saying that to grow quickly as an artist you should first learn from reality, and then copy a lot from other artists. The reason behind that is, that if you will start from copying other artists you will not understand why they make some decisions (like simplifications) and in the process you will just become a poor version of them. But, yeah, I probably took it too literally, and I should mix studying reality with studying other artists ;)

As for drawing, here is some stuff from imagination. Faces got a little better, although they are still kind of wonky

Glad you like it :) You have a unique style which is definitely working out for you, so I am not sure if you should be changing anything ;)

Stuff from imagination

I also started drawing wih brush pen. I actually have bought it like a year ago, but every time I tried to use it I failed miserably, I just couldnt go directly to ink. For some reason now it seems I can do it. Its nothing great, but Im still happy about it ;)
