Nice work, you are working hard and its good to see. Try to find a bit of a harder edge brush since a lot of your studies make the edges a little too soft. Good work all in all though, keep it up :)

Thanx ! :)

Yea, i really have a big problem about the edges, i often avoid using too much dark value for the edge but next time i'll try to experiment and combine something different..

Good to see you work on the fundamentals! Keep doing those head studies, and also try to think of the face not only as eye/mouth/nose, but also think of the planes, how the form changes etc. The more you construct the head by breaking it down into smaller parts, the easier it becomes to get your proportions right.
I agree with Jaik about the edges - it's not neccessarily about making them darker in value, just be a bit more decisive with placing your brush strokes. You could also try to work with 100% opacity without pen pressure to lay down your basic shapes first, then go from there.

Tnx for the advice, i'll definitely study a bit more about the planes later on, i seem to forgoten them..
Yea, i'll try that, tnx again.. :)

I didn't feel very well today but i pushed myself to do another study, still trying to get better at facial features..

Many test are incoming, making my time for art studies more limited, so here's just a little portrait and colour study.. on colour study i didn't do basic head construction lines so it looks weird but i learned something from it..

Such lovely colors on that last lady! The warm tones are really well balanced by the faint blues and greens. You've got some good eye contact going on there.

Keep practicing, do tons of still lives and try doing some sculpture studies, it helps with the forms.

Hey nice progress so far man, I think you're getting a good grasp on colour and the edges in your paintings are looking alot better in some of these recent ones.

To add onto what Crackedskull said, yeah try sculpture studies for form, even better if you can go to a museum and draw them from life. I'd also reccomend reading some books as well, Loomis is good for general proportions and the like but Hampton and bridgman are great for getting down the form.

Hampton also has a very good approach to gesture drawing as well, helped me improve on that alot. Bridgman is a bit advanced and confusing I think, however from what i've studied from it,
it seems like it'd complement hamptons anatomy approach well.

Anyway good work so far and keep practicing man :D.

Simplifying the shape is the right mindset for gestures! maybe try to find the line of action first, just a line that describes what the figure is doing, can you find a curve that goes from head or one arm right down the leg? If you have to, cut down the time to force you to simplify even more. Your proportions are quite good already!
Also have a look here (NSFW): http://babelab.blogspot.de/2013/01/pure-vs-impure.html

The material studies are nice! Love the cockroach XD
