Spoiler tags are done just like the normal bbcode [spoiler ] [/ spoiler] blocks, without the spaces of course.

Your paintings look nice. If you can't decide on the hairstyle, paint all three!

Drawing hair's not too bad, once you get used to it.

Painting on the other hand...

Anyways, I think you should darken the upper lip a bit more. It's angled downwards, unlike the lower lip, so it catches a lot less light.

Do you know any good tutorials regarding hair? I'm worse at hair than I am with other stuff...

The bottom half of the upper lip? Or the whole upper lip in general?

Normally I'm of the mind that texture brushes are a shortcut, and you should be able to paint everything with either a standard or rough-edged round brush... but hair is one of the few things I just can't seem to do without a special brush.

Almost all of the upper lip, you can bring back the lighter color at the top edge of the lip and slightly in the two meatier parts of the upper lip.

I'm always of the mind that if you're torn between choices of the design of something, you can always change it for the next painting.

Unless you're worried that you won't be able to draw it again. This is something I see pop up occasionally, but... just remember, no drawing is sacred. You've done it once. You can do it again, maybe even better next time. There's always room for improvement, and the flip side of that is that there's always next time.

Yeah, you read my mind. I've already changed her hairstyle. It's a lot different now. I still kept the bun though.

lol

Aww yiss


Someone told me in another forum, " It looks a little odd right now because it's monochrome except for those lips. Don't be afraid to have other colors in your ramps, have them less isolated and straight", is it really monochrome?

Flip between reference and no-reference studies. The references teach you things; the no-references show you how much of it you've internalized.

And remember, even the pros use ref when they can. It's easier and it makes your art look better.

What he said.
I really, really want to add more, but Djinn pretty much nailed it. Make sure to throw some reference studies in between fun sessions.

Yeah, that was what I was planning. This is just to gauge.
I can feel my brain working a lot more if I do it w/o reference, which is nice. I find myself asking, what next? What's supposed to go here? What's here again? It's just that I see more of my mistakes here versus me drawing from reference. I'd rather see a lot of mistakes than see just a little.

I find myself just mindlessly copying when I use a reference, which is my personal problem, I guess. But I'll do it in due time :>!

Forgot to put the first one.

This is exactly my problem. i see a picture and copy the pose/image and take measurements in relation to the picture plane etc.

i suppose when you're starting off, its painful. Really painful (just have a look at some of my older works) but i think the idea is to get the practice in, get a feel for things and you've got processes down try something different.

One of the fastest ways I've found to improve is to actually practice drawing other peoples artwork. I tend to do this if i have a question that needs answering. How do they go about solving the problem and by practice drawing in their styles you hopefully pick up their techniques or answer your question.

hell, one of the ways i draw male lips i copied that from witch hunter robin.


But i digress. From what i've seen, there's much potential, keep going and if its any consolation, you draw hair better than i can atm.
