Thanks for posting, but I suggest you take smaller photos or make the images smaller - they are too large to view easily within the forum. ;)

Your eyes and mouth drawings look good to me. I think the noses could use more work.

I think you would enjoy this tutorial: Phobs Face Tutorial: http://www.deviantart.com/art/face-tutorial-177059553

If you haven't, study the skull and face muscles to really understand facial expressions.

;)

Thanks for the advice :) lately i've been studying more angles to the face so that i can draw them better but yeah my noses are a bit awkward, they are fiddly to draw i guess haha. I have studied the skull a fair bit but not muscles so at some point i'll try do the muscles :)

Wolf I say don't try to do hard line finished drawings. Get a blunt thick lead pencil (2h) and just loosen up and try to relax and do some general sketching for forms and proportion. Maybe work from B/W photos and just see how things really look and how to use your pencil to recreate it on paper. Too soon for someone else's style ;) maybe take a look at my humble Sketchbook, it's all pencil From 88'-14'. Or maybe not :lol:

Thanks for the advice marvel I'll take that on board. Up until now I just use a HB cause its right in the middle and has a good range but sure I'll try with 2h as well. You're probably right though I'm probably trying too hard to do general sketching haha its just my nature I guess c: next time I'm sketching I'll try what you said :) thanks a lot

I completely agree with Marvel here. Loosen up!
Sometimes you'll find that your messiest sketches can sometimes be some of your best work!

You're doing great though, keep it up!

Hiya! You've got some nice basics going on. I also agree with other people about loosening up. I'd also like to give you another bit of advice that I wished I'd gotten years ago, and that is to not get to caught up only drawing heads and faces. I don't what you draw aside from what you've posted, so you may already do this. I only mention it because I spent a lot of my formative years drawing nothing but faces and eyes, and while I got pretty good at it, I also found that I had no ability to draw anything but faces. I can't recommend enough getting into drawing the body as a whole and gestures and actions. Also, make sure to practice non-human things, like buildings and stuff. But I guess it really all depends on what you want to draw.

Anyways, you're doing some good work, keep at it! =)

Hi Wraightdragon :D ! Well first of all thanks so so much for all that, and secondly you'll be glad to know that i have started studying body anatomy and muslces and been doing a lot of drawings related to that which im uploading right now :)

Hey guys so i'm back after another few weeks and have a few sketches to post, i apologise in advance for the messy layout of them though as i was drawing a lot more loosely and a lot of the surrounding drawings were just messy sketches or more of the same for practice so I cut them out (the sketches were taken from 7 pages of an A3 visual diary), if anyone wants ill post the original pages but for now here's these :) also in relation to everyone telling me to loosen up and use a 2H, etc. I actually did take your advice but when i was scanning the drawings they were too light and didn't show up so i had to go over them all with a darker pencil, it took so long doing all this ;___;

another thing i tried which i was told to a number of times was sketching with pen so that was interesting, i probably won't post those though because it was really messy :P

Nice work man! Some of those expressions are really well done, and your muscle studies look nice too. As well as anatomy studies don't forget to do figure studies. Go out to a park with a sketch book and just sit down and sketch people around you. It's the best way to really cement anatomy and it's functionality into your mind. If you have long commutes on public transport to/from work/school, carry a sketch book with you and draw that entire time. You'll improve rapidly with that kind of constant drawing.

Anyways man, it's all looking good so far. Keep on working on it. =)

Hi wraith thanks once again for the input :) i'm going to japan in one week and am going to bring a sketchbook but i'm not sure how much i'll be using it while i'm there so we will see :3 i'll give that a try too because i always take my dog for walks to the park so that's a good idea to take a sketchbook with me actually :D

Looks like you listened and learned. Nice use of coil-technique on that leg. now you're thinking..your figured out that you build your drawing with light lines until it looks good Then switch to darker, heavier lines to finish. I think you used a 2h for layout and then hb for finishing ;)
