Is the entire first post made up of paint-overs? because you should probably start with some studies. draw figures and do still life. You've got a lot of time to practice so keep at it
Hey man, thanks for stepping by!
I totally agree with WRappiii and I have a few advice for you, basic ones since I'm not any pro
-screw contour tracing, it looks better than what you can really draw but it ain't gonna teach you much
-stop using soft brush at all for a while, it doesn't look very good if you don't know when to use it
-try some only greyscale drawings, best way to practice value
-resize your images before posting here, I think 1000 px wide should be a maximum
-pay attention to the world around you, observe. It can sound silly and obvious but it's not so. Look at people's faces, clothes, environment, details, everything.
- posemaniacs, still life, photo studies (but not trace overs!), but imagination stuff is also important to develop your imagination and it's ofc more fun than studies

hey dude- only trace when correcting free-sight errors, its unsighly and shows in your first post.
try to scale down your images via an online image uploader (imgur) to make them forum-friendly.

Thanks for the advice guys, here is the digital version of my gcse art final piece, the face is traced in this one.....
Il try to churn out a few drawings this week with hard brushes, i have never really touched them...
I havent been drawing as much lately with schoolwork but i have been working on my esa and project so il get those both up, heres my final piece for my esa though, it is supposed to show emotions as objects that can be put on. from left to right they show anger, fear, and happiness. (i had 10 hours of school time to draw this.)

Here's all of my gcse pages, Please exuse any wrong order or missing pages uploading was a huge pain
Here are some doodles i decided to do today, the first one was painted with a with a fork and the second was painted, They are supposed to be my mum working and a self portrait respectively, i like how the self portrait looks but the first seems too vague.
My paint palette also seemed like a piece of art in itself by the end
I went Back to basics a wee bit this afternoon and did a few exercises i found here http://drawsketch.about.com/od/learn...nhowtodraw.htm
1-Making marks with a pencil.
2-Blind drawing ( drawing an image without looking at paper).
3-Pure contour drawings.
4-Cross contour drawing.
Good job going back to basics! A quick crit on your cross contours - remember to really wrap the lines around the form. Fingers especially have really distinct planes; don't just draw curved lines along the top, but really think about how they turn near the edges. Maybe try getting a bunch of different sized rubber bands and putting them around your wrist and fingers to see how that works. Quick drawover:
I noticed that in your first few posts that your line control was a bit wonky, but in the last post you've gotten better which is great
Also here's a list of books that may help you as well http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...ht=art+e-books
and some of them are available online for free download, I'm currently doing studies from Bridgman's books and they've been pretty helpful for me so far. Keep up the good work on your SB ^^
Revidescent - Thanks for pointing that out, il have another go and see if i can get my lines more correct.
Kanda- Thanks for the advice il check a few of those out.
