Late night (photo)shopping

I stayed up until 4am practicing a few things. I'm a bit frustrated with my progress at the moment but I'm going to keep working through it.

I think because I've been trying to practice human faces lately and I thought I was improving but when I did these last night, I was struggling. These took too long and still look cartoony and stylised, it's really something I want to work away from.


  1. ha.. i hit that wall every couple of weeks too. I think I'm doing well then I can't draw for crap... then it comes back, and goes... :D

    practice will make the inconsistencies fewer and fewer.

  2. I still don't see it.
    The lighting looks good, and tis probably the lines. Too thick maybe. Try working with just values as you would when painting.

  3. Thanks for the feedback. I hope you're right and it comes back Carl! I guess it's like anything- you have good and bad days.

    Yeah that's true Ed.. I think I really need to work out a consistent process for myself actually. The lines are probably a result of me drawing as I go rather than laying down the forms first and then focusing on rendering the shading.
