@Christina-Taylor-Brown That's very kind of you, Christina! Thanks for saying so but i really, honestly feel like it's getting lucky a few times... when it goes wrong, it goes really WRONG! xDD you should see some of the drawing of people i was doing about 2-4 weeks ago! xD
@Leontine-Gaasenbeek - i'm not sure if self confidence is growing but i can definitely see where false confidence has played a massive part in my development. Also, there's a lot of times i wished i just shut up and kept drawing instead of analysing so much. There's soo much i never knew that comes from just drawing and studying every day!
@Steve-Young when you say finished piece do you mean moving from a reference to an imaginative drawing and then pushing it all the way to a sort of polish stage? i'm hoping to traverse back to the 3rd Thursday comp and hopefully that will be from ref, simplified and then taken to as mfinished as i can muster! Thanks for your energy and ideas too, btw!
@Ben-Rudnicki142 Thanks very much, Ben! I saw the hair as the biggest challenge on the image but what you say makes so much more sense than just a technical challenge, it makes it about a hole person and i never really thought of it like that. Thanks!
I'm currently doing around 3 other big things so i'm trying to squeeze these in quicker these days/ Here's tonight's It's not fully successful but i didn't feel like i was checking reference this time. it was more like i was rying to catch who this guy was. I'm not sure if that doesn't sound like poo but i'm not sure i really understand it myself at the moment. Changes are a-foot!
