    Foot studies. I really need help here, because I'm obviously doing something wrong. The only guide I have is Bridgman, and he, surprisingly, isn't much help. Basically, "Here's what a foot looks like. Go for it!" I'm especially having trouble identifying the major masses.

    Learning to use Bridgman is an art in and of itself. Major masses are what he is all about. He indicates what forms the anatomy creates, he doesnt draw it exactly. The idea is to develope a concept of what the 3-dimensional structure of the figure is, so you can use that understanding to enhance your figurative drawings/paintings.

    I think your drawings are actually quite nice, but I wouldnt copy bridgman exactly, take a look at another book, or photo reference at the same time. And try to redraw Bridgman's drawings without making them look like ass (like his). So if you see a photo of a foot, and it looks like a foot as a photo of a foot tends to do, even without much information, you can take that photo and now try to apply the forms Bridgman is describing to the reference. You are essentially adding information. It's a difficult thing to explain but it's quite a good learning tool.

    Yeah, all of these are from photo reference. I was copying Bridgman's style to learn how to just lay the form down somewhat accurately and quickly. I think it's helped. My hands were always notoriously awful.

    Sick of updating that first post.

    First portrait ever. Which... is ridiculous, considering how long I've supposedly been trying to be an artist.

    I'm loving the beard and the almost water color effect you've given the whole picture however... the cheek and nose area doesn't really do it for me. It looks rather messy unlike the rest of the portrait and it seems like you let that area get away from you. Like you didn't follow the reference as well as you should. It doesn't look too bad, but perhaps more than any other place in the portait, it doesn't look like the man you were referencing.

    I think its because you turned the shading into 3 downward lines and instead of what is actually there in the picture (a smoother transition)
