Yep, more drawing will pump up your art muscles very much. Keep going at it! And been noticing that your skin tones tend to go in the greenish/desaturated spectrum a lot. Maybe keep an eye out for that, or try a really warm/saturated underpainting then paint on top of it to retain that saturation perhaps. More more more go go gooooooooo

Good effort on these studies. The still life you did especially shows improvement with how you are picking up on things like bounce light.

One quick thing, watch out for the proportions on the master study - her body looks ok, but her head is much bigger than the original (and the tilt isn't deep enough). It might help look at the negative space her head forms with the edge of the canvas as well as relative to her body to keep on top of it.

Here's some stuff; gonna work on this skull more tomorrow, Suz wants me to try and take a little box of something and make it have that photographic look since she thinks i'm ready to try it.. I hope i can actually do it, she just says it takes alot of time to get that look and i'm kinda seeing what she means the more i fidget with this piece..

Also workin on a portrait for a friend of my dads, it's coming along okay, i'll post it when i get more progress in it

Hey nice update, keep dem studies coming! :D
I think it would be more helpfull to stay a bit longer on these lifestudies. The shadows look guessed and the values still look kinda flat. So maybe spend a couple more hours on one study ;)

Painter... yeah tried it once, ONCE! Don't know why but I didn't like it. The brushes and all the settings were kinda uncomfortable so I just never touched it again. A friend told me that you should customise your pressure settings to optimize your experience and make the brushes work like they were meant to work but I never got to do this xD

Stay positive, just like your leg bot!!!

Great effort on all these studies! It is good to see you mixing it up with the materials you are painting.

Like Nowio said, it could be worth your time spending longer on a few studies - perhaps one way would be slowing down at the beginning to measure out landmarks/contours relative to verticals/horizontals. Keep up the good work!

I'm liking your use of soft colours in those. Don't know if it was intentional, but the pose of the human character in the third one looks pretty stiff to me.
