hey MotherOfPigs! welcome to crimson daggers!
looking nice for a first drawing :)
why don't you check out Andrew Loomis' Fun with a Pencil and Drawing Heads & Hands? You can find them as a pdf and it's a great thing to start with.

Good luck with your group :)
See you around!

Hello, MOP!

Check out the discord if you want to chat more directly with members of the forum: https://discord.gg/azX8fwT

I second Loomis. It would help you continue with this style of drawing and also with constructing forms.

Hey, MotherOfPigs. You have a good variety of exercises in your SB so far. Keep up with the orb lighting/value studies... it's good to do a ton of these to improve your understanding on light. If you haven't already, take a look in Dorian Iten's lighting course. It helped me understand lighting so much more.

However, with stuff like the eye in the post above, I think you're running before you can walk. The way the eye and eyebrow is constructed isn't correct. Alongside studying Loomis, I think you should look into Scott Eaton and his facial anatomy course. He explains the construction of the face very well.

On top of that, I would also highly suggest Proko's figure drawing fundamentals course (I think it's called that lol). It's a great course and really helps training your eye and methods of constructing. I recently spent the last week going through it and learnt so much from it.

Keep up the work dude! Studying, and studying hard, is the quickest way you'll be able to see progress :)

Hi MotherOfPigs.

Have you stumbled across this by any chance? http://www.dorian-iten.com/shading-mistakes/

and this: http://www.huevaluechroma.com/021.php

It seems your sphere didn't catch some of that reflective light from the surface its sitting on. And the cast shadow don't seem to be consistent with where the light source is located..

I suggest you do another sphere study. Given the links, it's probably better for you to work it out on your own first now you have some additional information on them. I'm also currently working out on my spheres that I don't think I'm in a good position to hand out a well thought out critique on this subject. 

With that said, good luck.

It's debatable whether or not what you're trying to achieve is indeed impossible. One thing's for sure: it's impossible to defeat a person who doesn't know how to quit.

Thank you so much chubbycat!!! I am sure that I'm running before I can walk! Its pure excitement and anxiety to improve my work!!! I have to learn how to handle with this! Thanks for the advice =D

I discover Dorian yesterday and its seems really awesome! I will keep up my studies on light and values and them move forward to Scott Eaton like you recommended!!! 

About the eye... I am afraid that my poor drawing skills block my improvement on paint, I always see pro artists saying that a lot of good professionals miss on the fundamentals of drawing... but i do not want to stop paint for learn drawing, so I will try to learn both draw and paint together, hope that eventually works out!

Thanks John!!! Lets pass over this studies together so! You are so right about the bounced light of the surface, I totally miss it, but about the cast shadow I think that is ok... I know that the cast shadow is the projection of the terminator... but I will check on other references and study the links that you recommended! Thanks for the criticizes John!!! =D

Keep painting!!!

My first enviroment paint... I just think this is REALLY dificcult, and I do not know what to study to improve in painting enviroments. Maybe my render skills is no good? Maybe my composition sucks? Maybe everything sucks? Feeling so desmotivated ... tired and frustated. time spend 30 minutes or so

Hey there! In general since most of your issues will be fundamental. Perspective and drawing first. I highly recommend drawabox.com. Go through all the exercises, and build up your fundamental drawing skills first if you are interested in improving in the most efficient manner. There's a reddit thread linked to that where you can also get feedback on the assignments

For enviros praps going through this thread will help.

I did an enviro mentoring course a while ago and feel it would be easier to push you towards that material for efficiency

Most of the video crits I did for people are still online here:
https://sites.google.com/site/edrocks2015/home

Demo vids and more theory stuff on my YT channel.
