@Blackspot: Hey, Thank you so much for stopping by again! You are right, planes help me alot and I can already spot a few of them thanks to Sir Asaro resting on my speakers- it is troubling me when I don't notice not noticing planes, but I find it even worse when I know there are planes but I cannot see them (which was the case with both the acrylic portraits). I don't find you too brutal- if anything, it helps! I would have not looked at my toilet sketch again had you not said it was awful. A mere "it's not so good" would have not have the same effect- so, thank you again!
A little update from the last days; I really enjoy painting an hope to do more of it in the future. I will probbaly read Light/Color again and try some colour palette exercises, I am quite lacking on that front. I am also looking into a lifedrawing course that would give me 6 sessions with a model- but I am yet to get more information on that. Budget is tight; and if it weren't for my birthday next week I wouldn't be able to afford it at all, so that's a positive thing!
I really struggle with the human body, mostly in the waist area, hips and also legs/feet depending on the angle. I tried drawing myself in the mirror, but its all up-front and doesn't really teach me more than a book could. I also don't understand foreshortening.. gosh, so much stuff to tackle and the new work starts next week!
Anyway, for dyslexics and those that are bored by my personal backstories, here is the stuff:
GuildWars2 Asura rubbish:
Asura: They are tiny and I wanted to see how big they are. Turns out they're 4 times their own head; which is a little smaller than a human head.
Asura Head sketch
...and in acrylics
And still life in acrylics (onion&apple)
