    Are you....painting on craft paper? That is going to make your life difficult. It still feels like you are simplifying your shadows to the point where you aren't really accurately observing the shape of them. At least on the fruit, those are like perfect bands of shadow, they look almost like cue balls.

    Like the kind that comes in a big roll? It looks like its bunching up a lot, as if it cant handle the water. You could go for canvas paper, or watercolor paper. Alternatively, just get a big ass chunk of Masonite and try taping your paper down so is stretched more evenly. We used to use water tape and cut our paper of the board when we were done. You can probably just do some painters tape though.

    In general though, It may be hard for you to find shapes on a really smooth paper that doesn't really absorb water. May want to mix it up.

    Yeah. Right now I'm just using it because it is cheap and my painting ability doesn't justify expensive media yet. I do have some watercolor paper I've been using and will be doing some work on this weekend.

    New still life, started it yesterday. This is the WIP after about an hour and a half put into it. Using the same materials and process as the last one. I'm layering washes of gouache and water color.

    Just some quick drawings I did today while I finished the painting.
    Tried a new drawing process using a chamois to put down value and drawing on top of it. I put down gesture, some value shapes and simple value and volumes, then went over it with a shammy dirty with graphite powder. Then I went back in after that I put more line down.

    Started a new one. I already feel like this is a major improvement. I started out with graphite then painted in the shadow shapes with a mix of a violet and yellow ochre pigments and then poured some that wash on a separate palette and added primary blue to it for the core shadows. Then I started painting on top of that.

    Here are some sketches from today. I started a new painting, a landscape. It was horrible so I didn't take a photo that would look even worse. I did learn a lot from it though.
    The first drawing was just something I did quick ~1 to 2 minutes to prove the argument the professor was having with a student from another session (Professor encourages getting into the studio as much time as you can so I stay for multiple class times). She wanted to work on her "dragon" drawing that she had been doing and he told her that drawing from life, even still life setups, would improve her ability to draw from imagination. She disagreed.

    The rest were me working on "portraiture" with a cast statue. I was getting frustrated today because of the painting and that may have come out in the drawings.

    The start of another still life. I forgot to put down the cast shadows from the basket but after I fixed it my phone died.

    The 2nd Amendment is unarguably one of the most liberal, liberating and radical statements ever made in human history.

    This is a "finished" drawing I'm working on. The composition is based on Angelica Kaufman's "Venus Induces Helen", but after that I drew everything from imagination. It has about 2 hours into it maybe. I worked on this while I was working on my still life painting in the previous post.

    I consider this very rough and I plan to transfer it over to a piece of illustration board over this weekend and make it into a more finished drawing.

    I haven't kept up with this thread like I should have.

    Luckily I've kept up my work. Here are some more recent things.


    This is the most recent, as I started on this one this morning. Charcoal and conte on Strathmore "Charcoal Paper".
    10270399_10155077699690008_4700492238729899073_n.jpg?oh=30543acac3de7ef5e235fb50cfe63517&oe=553F8149&__gda__=1428612150_8dd56889a6e1a1148d2c732fbc170f73


    As for the rest, I'll start oldest to most recent stuff. I'll spoiler it so the page isn't over loaded.
    Edit: some links didn't work.
    Portrait of my girlfriend, just a sketch, probably a few months old.
    10511209_10154288710965008_5228747739062708385_n.jpg?oh=f0e978d41ec8708e69de476c92c4ce69&oe=552FEE6D&__gda__=1428909624_dfbfa43ff51247a64fadfb16e89dccad

    About the same time frame, at the time I was like "this is the best drawing I've ever done".

    Same sketch pad page.

    Same page. I got into this stage where I really liked drawing fat guy heads.

    Another sketch page, more recent.

    A character request on a forum for a Call of Cthulu character portrait. I have this thing where I must take character descriptions (ones that I find hilariously bad in the "Mary Sue self insert" way and ones that I really like) and draw them as Frank Reynolds from It's Always Sunny.

    Here is first portrait I started yesterday with some more work done, and a second that I managed to salvage (in the process of doing it it started turning really terrible and I almost gave up on it). Taken on my phone camera so the image is slightly distorted compared to in person, but I think it's a pretty good representation of what they actually look like.

    Unfortunately my camera is terrible and I don't have a scanner big enough for this paper. In addition to slight distortion I think it darkens the image to much to see everything, but with the image lightened it takes away the values too much. So in person the second portrait is a mix of the last two images in that you can see the line work and the values are darker. I'll try to get these scanned if I can find a someone with a larger scanner.

    the left eye in both of them is traveling upwards, something thats easy to fix digitally but in traditional media you really want to lay down those guidelines and keep them there. Also you are going to have to get used to that weird funky shape that eyes make when they are in that 3/4s view: http://just-portrait-reference.tumblr.com/post/95828124688/hammpix-as-an-artist-youll-have-to-draw

    Thanks for the crit. Will definitely do the exercise from the link. Portraiture is my major weak point and I appreciate all input because I'm trying to improve on it.
