Subject title: Warty's pile of junk

Thanks, I really love my main brush i use it for almost anything, from landscapes to portraits. :)
And about those studies didn't redraw alot, they were quite quick but i just didn't care about the pose while i should've. I won't go into detail too much next time. Thanks for the advice!

I like your environments, I think your characters are a bit behind, so it's nice to see you studying anatomy :) I'd like to see what your characters will look like in a few months :P

Haha i know my characters are kind of crappy, but I started painting and drawing alot about a year ago and the only thing i painted were landscapes i never drew anything character related. So i taught myself how to paint by painting loads of landscapes and watching tons of tutorials, I only started studying anatomy and drawing humans about 3 weeks ago.

Good study man :D

At that point you could even start putting in some more microdetails like the creases in the forehead and whatever pores and other skin imperfections exist, but, you're never really going to have to paint that kind of thing to that level of detail unless that's just your thing i guess lol. I still have trouble visually spacing things. I know there are spacing techniques and lots of lines and shapes you can draw but, yeah. I use a grid that is mostly only like 8 or 12 blocks when I do a really tough just so i have some kind of guideline, I'm hoping to get rid of it completely, or at least work in just quadrants.

Thanks! Normally I don't use a grid but for this one i did :p normally i just measure everything, when you don't it's probably going to have some mistakes.

AHHH Loki~! this is great. Your use of light is on point! I love the little subtleties in the mouth especially or the way he squishes his eyes slightly it gives the picture life. the only thing i would say is the shadow under the ear seems a bit out of place since everything else is so greatly executed, i would recommend softening the shadow a bit. other than that great job, (thumbs up emoji)

Have you considered taking screenshots while working on some landscape? I'd love to see them, as I always fail in drawing scenery, I think it would be a great help to me.
