From the photos. I am generally happy how this turned out, although I am having hard time simplifying stuff when working from reference

From imagination. I have tried painting face from imagination for the first time, quite happy with it :) a lot of things can be improved for sure, but I was expecting much worse result ;)

Unfortunately I had to service my ipad, so I will be drawing traditionally for some time. Some sketches from imaginaion below :) They are kind of wonky and proportions are frequently off, this shows how much I rely on moving stuff around and making it bigger/smaller when working digitally. I try to do some quick pencil sketches before going with ink, but it seems that I spend too little time on that step. Well, hopefully I will get better in the future

Your figures are coming along really well as well as your line work and sense of contrast. I think the only thing I would keep an eye on is making the head a little too big.

Other than that, you're doing great!

Thanks Geryes, yeah I definitely have some issues with proportions, especially in traditional medium. I tend to see mistakes only after I start inking ;)
Here are some new drawings done in the last few days, unfortunately I didnt have time to draw too much

I have never really studied perspective much, so I figured I will give it a try. Here is some basic staff, I want to focus first on rotating boxes and elipses. For some of it I used construction and guidelines, but I also try to approximate without them

I am glad you are studying perspective. It will really make your drawings improve!

You are constructing your ellipses wrong. If you make a cross in the middle, an ellipsis is actually symmetrical. Here is an example:
Image

I know it seems really counter intuitive but that is actually what the ellipsis of a perfect circle looks like in perspective.

I am sorry that I am unable to explain it further. I highly recommend studying from Marshall Vandruff http://marshallart.com/SHOP/all-product ... ng-series/ he explains it so well and it is only $12 for hours of video. It can be a bit slow in the beginning but otherwise I cannot recommend it enough.

Thanks, yeah, I kind of know the theory, but it harder to do in practice ;) I try to not use too much construction, but maybe I should do more of that at the begginning

Thanks for the course recommendation :) for now I am using moderndayjames videos and scott robertson book, but I will definitely check that out

As a person who the perspective thing just didn't click for, I can say that Vandruff is the one who finally made me understand how to actually apply perspective. I don't know why, but most books and videos I tried just didn't do anything for me. Obviously it might be different for you but he might be worth a try.

I took a week long break from drawing. Have to get back to the daily habit, some figures and faces from imagination for the start:

I have enrolled in Wouter Tulp class on schoolism. The first assignment was to take a reference photo and try to exaggerate shapes (in steps), here is my attempt:

Not sure how I feel about it. I am not really into cartoon/caricature style, so it is hard to judge for me. I hope this will allow me to develop more interesting semi-realistic style in the future :)

Trying to rotate the figure from imagination. It didnt end up very consistent, I will definitely need to work more on this

Image

Also, trying to rotate cubes and cylinders without too many guidelines. Kind of wonky, cylinders are not my strong thing ;)

Great sketchbook. You simplified the light and shadow on the last study really well, and it's well proportioned! You almost don't need to blend! ;)

Thanks :) Ive made it easy for myself with size being the same as in the original, it is then easier to get proportions right ;)
