Those looks great! Do you have a specific focus in mind while doing these?

I've found setting a focus can boost improvement by quite a bit - for instance in this earlier set of mine, you can see a lot of them are literally just lines for the placement of the hairline, eyes, nose, and mouth. After doing that set I was more confident about placing guidelines like that, and I'm free to move to more advanced stuff like applying loomis or bridgemans construction techniques, or trying to understand the underlying structure better.

Anyway it's cool to see other people doing these! Do keep posting!

Hey. Thanks for responding.
I tried what you described with focusing on just one thing. It was not just more fun, but I like the results alot more :)

Focused on the shape of the head in this one. Will do one on lighting the next days.

Also, congatulations. You are the first person to give me feedback in this thread.
YAY!

Glad to hear that, mate. Thanks :)

It's with a brush I picked up at some time ago. Can't really remember from where.
I am sure you can create a similar structure by playing around with brush shapes and settings, especially the structure adn dual brush settings.

On a sidenote, for anyone visiting this thread: I wont be able to update for a week. Sorry about that.
I will make sure to bring a big load of studies and stetches to make up for it :)

Stay tuned

Rough study of a church interior. Reference was the Cologne Cathedral.

Was too busy this week to update daily, but I will be able to to it from now on again.
Btw, was giving clip studio paint a small run with this one. I really like the brushes so far.

I'm still trying to get a hang on this software because its not handling brushes like photoshop does, but its lineart engine is on of the best I've seen period.
