Hi, I'm new here!

Just though I would post some of my recent drawings. I know it's not great, I'm experimenting and progressing! :)

I love the emotion of the second one a lot. These are both very good. I think anyone who can draw a face is a hero.

Any critics or suggestions though?

My personal preferences lean towards less digital approaches. I feel like there is nothing in your pieces that couldn't be accomplished with traditional media. Have you attempted priming some good paper with watercolor or ink washes, gesso and acrylic, even coffee or tea? I would suggest a high grade paper with a high rag content, like arches cover white or arches aquarelle (300lb or better for watercolor and ink washes is my favorite). Are you using live references or photographs? I feel like personally there isn't an acceptable substitute for using a live model. Local colleges or art groups or galleries typically have figure drawing sessions. Nothing bad ever came from more practice. I like your line quality, have you ever tried silverpoint?

here is some of my figure drawing. 20 mins isn't enough to get to the face.

Really nice drawing! I tend to draw things very fast, otherwise I get bored after a while. Digital is nice because you can simulate traditional quite easily. I have been doing live reference, but at the moment only photographs. I'm just at the point to really start experimenting more with traditional as you said with wash ect. Those washes though were digital. Silverpoint? Need to google what it is...

Thanks for the tips ;)
