Drawing progress after three months

Hi, three months had passed.
This time I decided to do a test to check how much progress I did since the beginning of my journey with a drawing (or since I got back on a track again).

I took one of my r2d2 drawings which I did 3 months ago and drew it once again.
Here you can see results.
The first one is ‘before’, and the second one is ‘after’ 🙂

They are not identical in details, but the point was to check an overall progress.
What can I say?  I think that the second one is better, lines are more precise, maybe shading as well but, of course, the image is not yet ideal.  Maybe after a year or something, I will see more progress than now 🙂

Anyway, I feel that I improved my drawing skills, and apart from this test I want to show you some other things that I did.

Ok, so these are the drawings (some of them) which I did through the last month.

Drawings of faces were prepared without any looking at the people or pictures. I did them on my own and I am pretty content with them (even though they are not so good).  The last image was done pretty quickly with a very soft pencil (I used 6b).

From the technical side. I spent around 50 hours on drawing exercises, and I think it will be pretty still value for the future. The new thing is that I bought three new mechanical pencils in February, so I have four of them right now (apart from a full set of wooden pencils). Two of them are 0.5mm and two of them 0.7mm and I use B and 2B leads for them.

In the next month, I will continue with drawing lines, shapes, face elements and so on.
The goals are still the same.

Until next time.
Piotr
