You don't have to be proud of things to post them! Like, really, do you think I'm proud of *anything* I've posted? lolnope. That's why we're here! I'm glad you've found a way to improve confidence, though, and so far it's looking amazing! Chin up, and keep up the great work! :D
yeah just gotta keep grinding :)

the flat watchtower
Oooh nice studies man :)

The value on this last one are solid, keep pushing it!
if I can recommend something, don't try and do master studies in one sitting - take your time and really polish them - it's an amazing learning experience. The Masters really do know how to finish a painting, edge control and detail placement - but you will only get there in the last steps. So keep pushing :D

Looking forward to more updates!
Thanks Ursula[b], [/b]I'll keep that in mind :). Originally i used master studies to understand color and light, but that makes sense as well. That'll definitely help me out as I'm pretty confident in blocking things out now, but feel like I can never truly polish and finalize a piece.

getting away from landscapes for a bit
one in color :)
Hello Daniel,

Great sketchbook :) I'm diggin the improvement!

I had some ideas  on your last piece, 




Hope it gives you some food for thought! 

Keep truckin'!
Wow, thanks for going so in depth, and even doing a paint over for me..that's a first lol, and I really appreciate it. It makes a lot of sense that I should have considered the actual planes of the face more, and how that affects lighting, etc. :)
I can't say anything else that dodeqqa didn't already put in a much better way than I could have. Your making tons of improvement, Yang-- keep it up!! :D
Thanks Gabby :)

photostudy...trying to really pay attention to accuracy and detail
master study..nearly 6 hours..trying to really take my time and examine everything..will probably spend most of today trying to finish this up
rocks come in the strangest of forms
one more
Keep it going buddy, by the way if you're not using pinterest, then explore it some more. Has chuck full of great landscape pictures, basically nature picturest.

Another good one is this one:
Thanks Zearthus, I actually had EarthPorn bookmarked but completely forgot about it until you brought it up :D

So I've been hiding in my cave trying to get some portfolio pieces.
It's been a while since I've posted here. Life's just been really busy, and somewhat frustrating. I've been trying to crank out some portfolio pieces, but every time I start working on one, I find something new that I need to practice on. Plus just haven't really been happy with my work output lately. It feels like I've hit some sort of wall in terms of improving my art. I'm practicing and working on stuff but it's not seeming to come together. It's quite frustrating...

anyways new piece
gotta try to level up
I can see improvement for sure. If you want to see quick progress id probably try focusing on individual things to improve maybe? Like just focus on anatomy for a month, or composition etc. Instead of spreading yourself too thin.
Beautiful colours, progress, and pieces. CoreyH gave some good advice-- It's great to concentrate on specific goals. I'm learning the benefits of this right now. But, keep at it! Grin Thumbs_up
Good progress Daniel, keep truckin!
