not the best with painting eyes, started with the sketch painted in greycale over it, then just decided to wing it and went with no sketch for the bottom 2 and went back and painted over the sketch again for the one on the top right.

Me: "I'll post weekly"
Me: *Doesn't post anything for 3 months*
Whoops

I don't have much to post because I got a new computer for Christmas and haven't moved my art over yet.

eye drawings from 1/1/15 vs today #artgains

gotta make the first drawing of 2016 more interesting so I have something better to re-draw at the end of the year lol

another from today:

As usual I need to study more, one of my goals for 2016 is to push myself to do just that! I have so much I need to improve on, it's hard to chose where to start!

Happy new year everyone!
This year I want to improve in art in general but to narrow it down a bit mainly:
-Values
-Hair
-Male Bodies
-Clothing
-Colour
-Hands & Feet

Random things that aren't the studies I should be doing D: :

I have a really hard time sticking to just one subject to study, it's so frustrating! Like I'll be like "OK, I'm going to do value studies" but then I'll get bored and be like "ohh I really need to get better with male figures, and hair, and I could really use a construction/form refresher" or I'll just go back to drawing the same things I always do :roll: Wish I could just hunker down with one subject bc I'm not really improving and haven't in a while, I miss the "ahh-haa!" moments. but as always, I don't know what to stick to -_-
I'm just frustrated at the moment, my lack of creative ideas is frustrating, my inability to finish pieces is frustrating, my lack of skill compared to others my age(or younger) is frustrating, my constant procrastination of studying is frustrating, ART IS FRUSTRATING!

anyway, here's random junk:

half self-deprecating humour, half because I have insecurity with my art(I think most artist do), I feel like I'm not very good and should be better for me age.

I realized a can't keep avoiding feet(running away from them, if you will... haha, get it?) so that's what I'm going to be studying today. also need to paint more instead of just doing sketches all the time -_-

Feet are difficult, they are similar too hands in a lot of ways.

I haven't posted in a while, figured i'd pop in.

I finished a thing!

I've been doing the 100 hand challenge. it's been a struggle and I am kinda questioning my decision, is it worth it? am I learning anything? could my time be better spent working on something else? but I'm almost half way through so do I really want to quit now? idk...
here's what i've got so far:

Oh nice studies! really like the colourful faces a few posts ago.
About the hands, they are looking good to me. But because you wonder whether you learn anything out it... did you try to break the hand down into basic shapes? It looks to me like you're going for the outlines straight ahead. To draw simple shapes and build up the actual thing on top usually helps to better understand proportions and to memorize... :)

I haven't posted in months... whoops haha. I got stuck in another rut with art and was struggling to find the motivation to just keep myself drawing every day, let alone study.
Because of that I haven't improved much, if at all.
sooo enough of my excuses, I don't have much worth sharing but here're some sketches from the past couple months:

Mermaids aren't something i usually draw but it was for /r/sketchdaily. I drew a merman too but it's too big and I cbf resizing.

Some boys I sketched today:

hmmm... still a chronic sketcher who rarely colours or finishes anything :? :oops:
