Great expression of character and your studies are looking quite fine ;) bottom of the jaw is pretty difficult so you just need to keep at it :)

Great progress so far buddy! I'm glad you are putting the work in and challenging yourself too. I can understand how the jawline can be tricky but I agree PitE that you just need to keep at it and maybe look at some references for help. In the mean time I kind of did a quick redraw for some of your faces and added some notes. I'm still working on this stuff myself but I hope this helps.

Hey copying can be useful, particularity to see how another artist does something. It's also good that you can critique your on work. Something for these which may help them look better or other pencil drawings in the future ;(sorry for presuming if you already know this) When adding value a.k.a coloring pencil in pencil it looks neater if you get rid of the individual pencil markings by blending them together, either with a smudge stick, a piece of paper towel, or your finger. Then if an area is too dark, you can lift off the graphite with a kneaded eraser. (Or a regular eraser, but you can shape a kneaded eraser into whatever shape you need.)

Good work, though, keep it up. :D

Nice work. I don't believe it's that important to finish everything. ^^

@Peteman22 Thanks for advice but i like rough looks of fast pencil sketches, and not like to polish every single piece.
@Steeliebob Definitely, though, not of my authorship.

After a short-term downtime update.
Strange thing is i understand a construction, but still stuff drawn without a reference looks flat and dully.
BUT advancing slightly.

A process for me is a two steps forward, one backward.
If not in reverse, sometimes, unfortunately. :)

Hey wannabe, it's great to see someone so passionate about drawing that you have the stamina to draw that much ^_^.

As for critique, I'd say your anatomy could use a bit more rhythm, it's getting a little too symmetrical. Sycra actually had a crit' video about that that I think is pretty applicable to you:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIMLjz8rfgw

Hope that helps, keep working hard :).

Not enough passionate, to be honest, not that much and definitely not having enough stamina.
A little too symmetrical is a highly diplomatic definition :) Frankly it's simply flat and stiff.
Thank you

Trying to recreate stuff from memory, everythings below is done w/o refs, crap mostly, but uploading it anyway

Commenting on other people's sketchbooks is a good way to get other people to comment, I can see that almost half your posts are on here. Commenting on other people's work makes them want to check you out!

Could you perhaps tell us what sources you use for your art studies? Perhaps they are not good enough; or perhaps you need a new source with a different perspective. Sometimes the specific source just does not click with you and you have to find someone who will show it in a different way.
We have DID (the thing Sycra has).

Artist: she is mainly the one who draws.
Writer: he is usually the one who writes on the forum.
Lawyer: he studies everything, honestly.

Maybe you're right, but what's not got enough in the first place is my ability to concenrate and to sit through to study anything thoroughly.

Anatomy, head angles and expressions exercises
If someone would critique this, tell me, what's the most crucial at facial construction? What am i doing wrong?
Looks like i am doing the same thing over and over again

Though i see rude mistakes looking at these now

The most important thing about faces is that knowing the simplified 3 dimensional structure of the head. The head is basically a ball with its sides cut of and a boxy jaw attached to it. Since it is a ball, you will see most features wrapping around the head in different ways depending on the angle. This is usually visible on the eyebrows and the lips.

In the spoiler you can see the lips curve upwards with the eyebrows ever so sligtly moving upwards as well.

@Plumbum

Thanks for the guiding, funny part is - i understand that (that everything is dimensional, has volumes, etc), a concept is comprehended. It is rarely hits its realisation as it should look. Maybe because i rely to much on lines, (trying to 'feel' and remember construction and proportions), when in reality facial features barely contoured, all that bulges, noses, cheeks, eyelids, lips are slightly rounded and flowing in one another softly. There is no rough lines in the most elements.
Hey, now i found i have a problem with controlling pressure of strokes

@Steeliebob

Much obliged.
It's a shame that the most decent looking pieces are copied ones or complemented.


Here some more feeble uninspired doodles.
When it touches upon a subject of studying there is no place for inspiration, actually, it's just a hard work with no visible benefit. It is hard to break through own stupidity, but the process is so much fun.
